For Black Friday, MDC reissued their classic album, Millions of Dead Cops. The CD version also includes the Multi Death Corporations EP, the Millions of Dead Children EP, the Stains EP and almost an entire live show at CBGB's from 1983, along with some previously unreleased tracks. All of the songs were remastered, making the sound quality excellent compared to most hardcore albums. Being a fan of MDC, I was most interested in the live show. The only real complaint I have about it is that the last song of the set gets cut off in the middle of it because whoever recorded it ran out of tape. Other than that, it is a great display of MDC's strong ability to perform. The quality of the recordings is pretty decent, as well, especially considering when and where it was recorded. I was pleasantly surprised to hear just how clear the recording was. With many live hardcore recordings, the quality always seems to be relatively poor (The live tracks on Negative Approach's Total Recall come to mind). The previously unreleased songs "(R)Evolution in Rock," "Pay to Come Along" and "Pecking Order" are able to be found on the Millions of Dead Cops/More Dead Cops compilation from 1988, leaving me to wonder why they are labeled as unreleased. However, "Corporate Deathburger" and "Dick for Brains" from the original Stains 7-inch were unreleased until now. The Stains EP is a good way to close out the album by showing how MDC's style shifted between their first EP and later releases. I would highly recommend this album to anyone who is interested in hardcore. Fast music, extreme political stances and powerful lyrics are three things MDC provides on this reissue of a hardcore classic.

"millions of damn christians"
Year:  1987

Format:  CD
Tracks:  14
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk        Heavy Metal


















Here above you can read "punk - heavy metal", but in fact this is the most varied stylistic MDC album ever. With songs which go from blues to hard rock to heavy metal to punk rock or simply hardcore. Some songs are surprisingly complicated, with elaborated structures, changes of speed and a whole which can to remind some kind of prog-punk. Distorted and acoustic guitars, voices and spoken words, and a high technical level which can to remind some mainstrem Metal rock stars. But MDC continues to be MDC, and lyrics and attitude are identical as always. Excellent album and maybe the best but the best next to their debut "millions of dead cops".

probably this is the most underrated and forgot MDC album ever, but this is not just at all. There was no justice for this album, not yet nowadays. we are in front of a MDC work which the band used two bass guitar at the same time as well as some kind of psychedelic keyboards. melodic and elaborated guitar rifffs, softer voices and no screams, complicated bass guitar structures and (as said) that original psichedelic keyboard took from the 60's decade. the resulting is frankly original and different than other MDC albums and also other hardcore punk albums too. recommended to listen to this original and ironical album. good... very good album!
