All 57 remastered tracks of seminal Florida screamo act REVERSAL OF MAN are back from Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden West and, according to the band, “they sound killer!!!” The influential Ebullition Records signees have announced another catalogue re-release, this time through Repeater Records! More details about the possible release date will be released later this year.
Comments the band: “Repeater Records is in the beginning stages of getting this full discography pressed… As we all know, vinyl pressing is taking waaaaaayyyy longer than anyone planned right now. So, when we have a solid date / time frame, Y’all will be the first to know!!!”
Reversal of Man formed in Tampa, Florida 26 years ago and broke up 5 years later.
The band is associated with the late 1990s screamo movement and noted for bordering on powerviolence and grindcore. The group’s lyrical content was often political, and the group initially formed as a reaction to the then-growing underground nazi punk scene in Florida.
During their existence, the band toured frequently across the United States as well as parts of Europe. Vocalist Matt Coplon was known for taping his microphone to his hand in order to not lose it during spastic performances. The band were signed onto Ebullition Records for the release of their sole full-length This Is Medicine in 1999 after label operator Kent McClard found out about them through their split 12-inch with Holocron. Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré has described This Is Medicine as one of his favorite albums.
The group would eventually break up in 2000, with members going on to play in bands such as CombatWoundedVeteran, Fathers, Horsewhip, Guiltmaker and Light Yourself on Fire. Guitarist Chris Norris currently does graphic design under the name Steak Mtn. – Wikipedia
