New York-based metallic hardcore band Confusion is set to release ‘Storm The Walls: 1990-1994‘ on June 23rd through DAZE and Generation Records. Currently available for pre-order, the compilation features the band’s entire recorded discography, remastered by Mark Dann, and includes liner notes from members of Indecision, All Out War, Starkweather, Next Step Up, Darkside NYC, and others.
Originating from Brooklyn in the early 1990s, Confusion is credited as one of the pioneers in blending hardcore and death metal. The band has previously shared remastered versions of “Distorted Visions” and “Storm The Walls,” and today, they unleash their powerful title track, “Confusion.”
Bassist Michael Scondotto elaborates on the song: “‘Confusion,’ one of the band’s earliest compositions, serves not only as our theme song but also as an excellent representation of the metallic sounds that distinguished 90’s NYHC from its more punk-oriented 80’s counterpart. ‘Confusion’ is catchy, groovy, and culminates with our infamous pre-breakdown callout: ‘BUST THIS SHIT UP!’ In short, mission accomplished.”
The band members of Confusion include Michael Scondotto on bass, Mike Fried on vocals, Ralph Canovic on drums, Frank Collins, Mike Price, and Pete Melucci on guitar, each serving during different periods between 1990 and 1994.
