Bombthesystem!'s second release will be the official Inner Dam 'Discography.' For those who not familiar, Inner Dam was one of Orange County, NY's first hardcore-metal bands. Alongside the likes of All Out War, Beneath The Remains, Drowning Room and Eye2Eye, Inner Dam was instrumental in the formation and foundation of the OCNYHC scene. As singer John Vista puts it, "We began in the fall of 1995 as a four piece band in love with mid-90's metal-core. Our wish was to be the first 'E' chord chug band from our area. We succeeded and our dream came true."
Originally compared to the likes of Chokehold, Earth Crisis, Damnation A.D. and Undertow, throughout the years they solidified their sound with a heavily influenced mix of The Cro-Mags, Burn, Unbroken and 108. After touring Europe in 99, Inner Dam was put to rest. Resurfacing twice in 2005, and one "final" time this past summer. This release will serve as the final nail in putting Inner Dam to rest. Although no longer active, they will never be forgotten.
This release will include "The Day Everything Meant Nothing" and "When Angels Fall" EPs, as well as "The Last Second Of Forever" 7" - all originally released on Belgium's Released Power Production in the mid-to-late 90's. This is all still very much in the early stages, but expect this sometime before the end of the year. In the meantime, check out the official Inner Dam MySpace page here.
