***Sorry State presents a US pressing of H.I.C. Systeemi’s Perälä-nauhat 1981-1983 cassette, originally released on the archival label Finnish HC late in 2020. Perälä-nauhat 1981-1983 collects early rehearsal recordings by this underrated hardcore band from Ylivieska, Finland. Don’t let the fact that these are rehearsal recordings scare you… the recordings sound excellent and the band is on fire throughout. Anyone with an appreciation for fast, complex, and memorable 80s-style hardcore punk will have no problem enjoying this, but if you’re familiar with 80s Finnish hardcore or H.I.C. Systeemi’s other recordings, all the better. These recordings predate H.I.C. Systeemi’s lone studio album by several years, and include 6 previously unheard tracks that never got recorded in a proper studio.
