The Catatonics 'Hunted Down' LP
The Catatonics were Syracuse and Central New York’s first hardcore punk band.
Besides pioneering the original 1981/1982 Syracuse Hardcore scene, their classic Hunted Down EP/7" is considered one of the first hardcore thrash/metal crossover releases, right up there with COC or DRI and remains a sought after (and pricey) collectors item 30+ years after it's release.
Often compared to Jerry's Kids, SSD, Negative Approach and even Slayer, The Catatonics weren't followers or imitators, more like period contemporaries. Although the wait has been decades in the making, Southern Lord reissue Hunted Down as a 12” vinyl release with bonus tracks.
