Past and present members of Portland, OR hardcore mainstays such as Remains Of The Day, Hellshock, Warcry, Lebenden Toten, etc. pull a 180 and dish out 10 tracks of icy, ominous post-punk. Since their last release, The Estranged have dialed back the explicit aggression of their early singles a bit, and dialed up the textured, atmospheric, layered sounds of prime ’80s deathrock/post-punk. ‘The Subliminal Man’ was painstakingly, impeccably recorded at Type Foundry Studios in Portland and features eight new ones, a re-recording of ‘Statue In A Room’ (originally released as a split 7′ with Autistic Youth) and a rather stunning cover of The Flys’ 1978 classic ‘Love And A Molotov Cocktail.’ Includes download.
