GOVERNMENT WARNING-EXECUTED 7" is $4.00 plus shipping.
Recorded in the same session as PARANOID MESS. This was originally intended to be a European tour single but we just opted to make it a proper release instead. The title track charges through at varying speeds, musically taking cues from Kings of Punk era POISON IDEA topped with Kenny's biting vocal delivery, while the flip side backhands you with one quick ripper in standard GW fashion, followed up with a Battalion of Saints cover.
REVIEW-The Executed 7". This is a fast pair of almost lo-fi, scrappy '80s hardcore tunes from the band, as usual; but unlike 2007's Arrested 7"--which is what I'd last heard of them--this really doesn't sound like the Adolescents at all to me. It reminds me more of the thump of Black Flag's Nervous Breakdown 7" with the snot-punk attitude of the Germs circa (GI), even if that combo doesn't sound entirely different to you. The title track starts out a little more mid-tempo and rock'n'roll-oriented (at least, for GW), before picking up and slamming through an apathetic sounding but rapid pace. For a digital bonus you get a cover of Battalion of Saints' "Modern Day Heroes"; it fits in perfectly with the other two. (PUNKNEWS)
