BROTHERHOOD "Till Death …" LP
Having raged the West Coast from their 1987 inception to their disbanding just over two years later,BROTHERHOOD existed alongside Insted, Bl'ast, Chain Of Strength and Uniform Choice. The members of the band were all bred in the Northwest on The Accused, Poison Idea, The Melvins, and with East Coast threads born of SSD, DYS, Corrosion Of Conformity and Straight Ahead woven into their sound they created a powerful strain of straightedge hardcore in which the band conveyed their intolerance for racism, sexism and more through their lyrical basis and on-stage delivery. Their relatively short-lived run went on to inspire many of the seminal bands that have followed in hardcore straightedge such as Undertow, Unbroken, Champion, No Tolerance and many more. Members of BROTHERHOOD have posthumously forged numerous other musical endeavors including but not limited to Christ On A Crutch, Sunny Day Real Estate, Foo Fighters, Resolution, Digh Down, Burning Witch, Engine Kid, Sunn O))) and Goatsnake.
