HERO DISHONEST-ALLE LUJAA 12" LP-13 songs, 13 reasons to eat your own face. Total ripping destruction from one of Finland’s greatest treasures! HERO DISHONEST has been making an unprecedented amount of noise since 1999 and continues to elevate and elaborate on their ever-expanding sound. The “ALLE LUJAA” LP continues the bands expansive use of a rawer, more mean live sound in the recording and the thick and chaotic yet naturally rich garble of vocals sung entirely in Finnish. Having been compared to the likes of BLACK FLAG, DIE KRUZEN, SNFU, BLAST, and many more trail blazing creators, HERO DISHONEST continues to deliver the goods both in the LIVE and RECORDED settings, while still seemingly only being on the radar of those hip enough to “be in the know”. Step into the light and bathe yourself in HERO DISHONEST’s rich gory glories.
PRESSING STATS-Limited to 300 copies (100 Blue/200 Black vinyl). Hand Silk Screened covers, digital down code. Comes with sticker/digital download code.
REVIEW- Suburban Voice: Let's face facts--a lot of bands start to run out of new ideas after a few records. Hero Dishonest are a notable exception. They've always taken the parameters of hardcore punk and stretched them without any sort of dilution. And while the two songs that comprise the entire second side, timing in at 7:31 and 4:41, test the patience, the first side has a ferocious, kinetic energy. One of my buddies called what they do "math core." I don't think he really meant it as a compliment but, to me, it's a semi-adequate description for Hero Dishonest's balancing pure force with complex, unpredictable elements. There's speed and burn and the band's chops lift it above the ordinary. To put it in cruder terms, they can play their asses off. 11 tracks on side one, including a cover of Die Kreuzen's "Hope" (the Finnish title is "Kipu"). As for the lengthier compositions, "I'm Hitting Myself To Make Sure This Isn't A Dream As Well" (English translation--think I'm typing out the Finnish title?) starts off with a narrative accompanied by a brooding vamp, transitions into explosive hardcore and then noisy atmospherics. "Same Train" exudes some Side 2-of-My War pain. As I said, stretching the parameters but I think I'll be sticking to the first side.
