1 min read

New York Hardcore legends, CRO-MAGS, have released their highly-anticipated and long-awaited new full-length album, In The Beginning. “In many ways, it is a new beginning and also a tribute to where it all began,” reflects CRO-MAGS founder Harley Flanagan on the new record available today. Listen to or purchase In The Beginning, out now on Mission Two Entertainment.

“I’m not afraid to break the so-called rules of hardcore, I never was,” admits Flanagan. “That’s why our music stood out and always has. I am so proud of In The Beginning, it was a long time coming but I feel redeemed. It’s a culmination of everything I am as a person, my personal evolution. It is 100% CRO-MAGS.”
