1993 was a critical year of transition and change for the music world. Mariah Carey and multiple boy bands replaced melodic rock and metal bands at the top of the radio charts. And, instead of blockbuster albums by established 80’s rockers, we were stuck with grunge/alternative taking over and giving us bands like Gin Blossoms, Spin Doctors, and Soul Asylum (booo!!!). Hard music fans needed HELP, and they needed it FAST! No one could have anticipated how much Generation’s Brutal Reality would strike a chord in the hearts of a generation of metal fans feeling alone, ignored, and left behind. It was modern. It was metal. It was abrasive, and it seemed like something that would come off a futuristic Blade Runner movie soundtrack! Generation Brutal Reality was birthed into existence in 1993 on Wonderland & Metal Blade Records. Fans were rendered speechless with a full album of pioneering and cutting edge heavy, technical industrial metal of the highest order; featuring the talents of Randy Kerkman (Mission of Mercy) and Bruce Franklin (of the epic, historic metal doomsters, TROUBLE). Elevating Brutal Reality is the uplifting and thought-provoking Christian themes in their lyrics, establishing the album as a certified agro-industrial classic recommended for fans of Ministry, NIN, Circle Of Dust and Chatterbox. Fans have been dreaming of the day when this cybernetic masterpiece could be heard on analog vinyl format. Most thought this day would never happen. Think again. Girder Records is offering this industrial metal classic as part of the Limited Run Vinyl series on 180 gram black wax. Almost 30 years later, the album sounds and feels as relevant as ever. Grab your copy now. Trust us, resistance is futile.

WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL?
Each pressing is limited to just 100 or 200 copies max never to be re-pressed again. They are 180 Gram and come with a high quality black poly-lined sleeve as well as a free RipStream digital download. These are truly limited and will run out fast. You'll want to get in on these early. Some of these will sell out within 24-48 hours.
WHAT IS ECO-MIX?
Eco-Mix is a specialty random colored vinyl. They could be ANY color, as well as mixed or swirled. We do not know what color they will turn out to be. The mock you see here is from a previous eco-mix pressing. They are environmentally safe and ridiculously cool.
WHERE CAN I BUY THEM?
Simply click on any of the pre-orders buttons above and you'll be taken right to the order page. You'll be redirected to Girder, Roxx, NoLifeTilMetal or Boones website.
REMASTERED FOR VINYL
When music is remastered for vinyl it simply means that we are not trying to make it as loud as possible. Quite the opposite. We are allowing these releases to breathe and have the dynamics that were intended on the original recordings. We enhance the sound with more modern EQ techniques and letting the music speak.
IS THERE MORE COMING SOON?
Yes. We will be adding more soon, so keep checking back.
