Manix – Riprize
October 21st, 2013 by Haste
Manix AKA Marc Mac from 4 Hero released a hardcore album, Living in the Past, the other day. You can grab it on MP3 but the vinyl editions are all gone now including a very lovely looking picture disc which I was lucky enough to grab a copy of…but only just!
The album’s great. 10 tracks of hardcore mastery done as a faithful recreation of the sounds that these guys were putting out back in ’92 and ’93. It doesn’t stray far from the original formula, which is absolutely fine by me considering Manix and the Reinforced lot released some of the finest tunes from this period. Is the album better than the classics of yesteryear? Sadly not, but it’s an excellent recreation of the golden years of hardcore and deserves a spot in everyone’s collection.
