Earlier this year, I had the TWFT reels transferred from analog to digital. The studio handling the transfer provided me with reference audio of what was on the reels. I was surprised to hear how the contents unmixed, actually sounded great. So this limited edition record shares that recording. There are no FX, no level changes, it's just the raw recording naked for all to experience.

In the mid-nineties I played guitar for a little remembered Hardcore band called Painstake, in addition to handling vocal duties for a band called Perseverance from Denver and Pueblo CO., respectively. With these bands, I was fortunate enough to share the stage twice with the Mighty Bloodlet. While through acquaintances and happenstance Bloodlet was indirectly a part of my life, sharing friends and briefly a former drummer. While I never had an opportunity to get to know them better I did know the brilliance of their music. A fan from the first moment I heard the classic 7" records, I still remain a devout fan. This amazing live recording captures the genius this band possesses. Leaving no doubt that they are worthy of legend.
I look forward to their future endeavors as a result of their recent reformation. Jason Andrade
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
