Fusing hardcore, punk rock and heavy metal into a furiously thrashing hybrid, Seattle's The Accused invariably described to their style as "splattercore," a reference to their chief lyrical inspirations - b-serie horror films and comic-book violence. It was a far cry from the political leanings of vocalist Blaine Cook's previous band, the Fartz, but it gave them a definite crossover appeal among both punk and metal audiences. With their roots in hardcore, the Accused presaged the rise of the Seattle scene, but never fit into the grunge movement that sprang up around them. Some of their key personnel went on to join the "grunge metal" band Gruntruck, but in their own lifespan, The Accused were a different enough beast that they weren't able to capitalize on all the attention afforded the Northwest underground. The Accüsed disbanded in 1992 and come back in 2003 until nowadays.

Perhaps not their best album but the most famous, and well know for the majority. Obsviously the artwork (cover, back and inside) are an excellents illustrations which have kept with the pass of the years. Musically this is a fistful songs of typical american hardcore punk from the 80's decade. Faster and crudest than other bands as Minor Threat or Black Flag, but simply hardcore. Good hardcore of course!
