Get A Grip/Hammer Head split

Post by BCHC » Mon Nov 27, 2006 11:09 am

Split CD between Get A Grip (Richmond, VA hardcore) and Hammer Head (Delaware County, PA hardcore) on Strike 3 Records (STR3002). I did most of the layout, Daniel Riehl did the inner booklet and label logo. Released in December 2006, 1000 copies made. Available from RevHQ, Interpunk, Deathwish Inc., Surprise Attack and Pyrrhus Records. Front cover also used by Get A Grip as a web logo.

"Richmond, VA's Get A Grip has paired up with Philly's up-and-coming Hammer Head to present their second release. After a small line up change, Get A Grip is back with an even more raw and hard sound, bringing to mind the sounds of their past bands such as Cast Aside, Dead Serious, and Barfight, but they also feature the raw energy of Black Flag. Hammer Head brings the second half of the split with a much slower pace along the lines of Tarpit and Negative Approach."

Reviews
"I'm really liking this splits layout, the artwork has a real metal feel to it, from the death metal styled band logos, down to the carnage filled artwork. It's got a rapture feel to it, war on earth with a demon filled sky. Good choice of colors as well, the various shades of yellow and orange work great and it's all printed on quality gloss. The inside of the book was handled good, each band has it's own page with the lyrics and a nice silhouetted photo of the band. (...) The layout is quality, recording is very solid and both bands are good." - SicZine.com

"The latest from Strike 3 Records sees Richmond, VA’s Get a Grip and Delco, PA’s Hammer Head joining up for this 22-minute split CD (with some pretty damn cool looking artwork, I might add)." - Aversionline.com

"The cover art is decidedly in a thrash vein, but the album sounds a lot different than what you’d expect." - C...Rap.com

"The only thing that is really good about this CD is the artwork which was done by a guy who's website is boycottchristianhc.com. Check out his work." - Calihardcore.com
