Vinyl LP reissue of this 1986 album from Italy's answer to Black Flag. Many would classify Raw Power as "crossover" Hardcore because they employ heavy riffing and wanky solos in many of the songs, but their ferocity defied any generic label. Whether or not they were named for the Stooges album, Raw Power had as much to do with the ultra-high-energy of the Detroit Rock sound as they did with contemporary early '80s Hardcore Heavy Metal. The After Your Brain LP was released at a time when U.S. Hardcore was beginning to lose it's direction. Short-sighted Americans who only paid attention to their own country often cite this time as the "death" of Hardcore. One listen to this album lays that idea to rest.
