Respect Due compilation 7"

Here's a fairly obscure compilation 7" I came across recently. Released on Brick Records in 1996, it features 4 quite distinct bands, making this a somewhat weird, but also very cool compilation that showcased 2 Massachusetts bands, Intent To Injure and Lockdown, and 2 bands from Rhode Island, Time's Expired and Temperance. Brick Records was, and still is, (co-)run by Josh Gagne of Intent To Injure, who also goes by the name Truth Elemental. The label is still around but releases hiphop/rap records. I don't know if there were any other hardcore releases on Brick Records? ITI do a Black Flag cover here, decent enough but it doesn't really stand out. Time's Expired's song is great groovy new school hardcore with rap vocals, the song was taken from their self-titled 7". Lockdown was a hardcore band which had broken up in '94 or so, but got back together again. This was their first recording since reforming I believe. Excellent heavy tuned down metallic hardcore, I wish I had more of their material. Temperance's song was taken from their self-titled 7", great mix of emo and metallic new school hardcore. A sweet compilation all in all. Enjoy!

Solid. I'd like to hear more from that Lockdown band for sure. And Time's Expired rules. Totally underrated. Their "Taciturnity" album is awesome. Always liked Temperance, too.
