DIE KREUZEN "Cows And Beer" 7" EP

Ltd clear vinyl.

A reissue of the classic, phenomenal first 7" of the early '80s hardcore band Die Kreuzen "Cows And Beer." After having been out of print for nearly 30 years, the original master tapes from this groundbreaking release had finally been restored, remastered, and given a proper reissue.

Throughout the 80s and into the 90s, Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen challenged audiences by pushing the boundaries of what a hardcore band could do, experimenting with sounds far removed from the constraints of the genre. The band broke up in 1992, leaving behind four full lengths, a slew of singles and compilation appearances and an incredible amount of influence. For the remainder of the decade, its members went on to pursue other projects, both musical and otherwise. Meanwhile, the band’s legendary status began to quietly grow among musicians and music fans alike.

“…the Cows and Beer EP helped change the face of hardcore. Vocalist Dan Kubinski’s high pitched shredding screech has been endlessly imitated across all strands of Punk and Metal..”
an excerpt from “Users Guide To US Hardcore” The Wire (UK), March 2013 – Issue 349

Now available again on colored vinyl.
