Label: Magic Bullet
Tracks: 18/50
Length: Long

New York City’s BLACK ARMY JACKET was one of the key players in the powerviolence movement of the ‘90s. Featuring musicians that have played in such bands as Discordance Axis, Hope Collapse, Human Remains, and Municipal Waste, BLACK ARMY JACKET specialized in a unique strain of grinding hardcore that was as memorable as it was relentless.

“222” is the proper full-length from ‘90s NY/NJ hardcore/grind/thrash beasts BLACK ARMY JACKET. Originally recorded and released in 1999, all 16 tracks have now been remixed and remastered from their original tapes for maximum eardrum indulgence and abuse. Additionally, two previously unheard bonus tracks recorded at the same time as the album are now included in the program.

Notably, BLACK ARMY JACKET was one of the earliest bands in the playing career of drummer Dave Witte. Having done time in Human Remains and Discordance Axis (among others) leading into BLACK ARMY JACKET, Witte went on to many more notable bands within the genre and beyond, including Municipal Waste, Publicist UK, Brain Tentacles, and Burnt By The Sun. Guitarist Andrew Orlando was the figurehead behind Reservoir Records, a label of the same era that represented like-minded talent such as Spazz, Jesuit, C.R., and Noothgrush. (Press Note)

“Closed Casket” is a 50-song effort in collecting BLACK ARMY JACKET’s various cassettes, 7”s, and splits in one convenient spot. (Press Note)
