The next record I picked up was this, the self-titled 7" by Durham based hardcore band End Reign. The first thing that struck me about the 7" was the awesome artwork. It was released as a cooperative effort by four UK based labels - Fist In The Air Records, Witch Hunter Records, Hemlock 13 and Holy Roar Records.
The record contains four tracks.
Tracklist:- 1. Horror
3. To Pray For
4. Dream Eater
I bought my copy from Fist In The Air and the record was pressed in a batch of 500 on two colour-ways. 200 on Blue/Black (the one I've got) and 300 on Green/Black. Hemlock 13, Holy Roar and Witch Hunter all have the same colours and you can still pick copies of this up from each label.
The A side of the 7" has a great centre label, with the initials of the band featured really prominently.
The B side features a centre label with the teeth of the wolf on from the record sleeve.
As well as the quality of the release as a whole, Fist In The Air threw in a free sticker and a free End Reign sticker featuring the record sleeve artwork and a free patch.
You can still pick copies of this up from the labels below:-

If you're a fan of homegrown, Northern hardcore, you could do a lot worse than pick this up. The package is really top quality and it sounds ferocious.
