Final Conflict's "Ashes To Ashes" Seeing Re-Issue Via Tankcrimes

The mischief makers at Tankcrimes are extremely honored to announce the reissue of "Ashes To Ashes," the 1987 debut LP from Los Angeles hardcore punk outfit Final Conflict. This new edition is due out April 15th, and the label also comments:

"Influenced by the British punk severity of bands like Discharge and one of the first groups to fuse hardcore's simplistic and manic audio fury and heavy metal's musicianship with any degree of success, the spiky-haired punks in Final Conflict manifested a sound that would go on to be emulated by hundreds of bands to come, none ever reaching the level of raw power this LP delivered. Originally issued on Pushead's Pusmort Records in 1987 then later released via Relapse Records in 1994, this monumental release now find's a new home at Tankcrimes Records.

"Available on vinyl and 2CD, the original Ashes To Ashes tapes were found, baked, restored and transferred by Ulysses Noriega at The Laundry Room Recording Studio in Los Angeles, California and remastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door Studios in Austin, Texas. The 2CD version includes the 1985 Demo on the bonus disk while the vinyl edition includes 12" x 12" 24-page book with lyrics, photos, flyers, commentary and more plus a foldout poster. The first pressing comes on in three color schemes: splatter (mailorder exclusive), red and black wax."
