Violent Solution

Violent Solution . Paralysis A capital area thrash band that can be considered to be the foundation of Amorphis. Two thirds of Violent Solution plus one Abhorrence and one Nuxvomica member made up Amorphis originally.

The most notable thing about the Violent Solution 7" is that it's supposed to be played at 45 rpm but it sounds remarkably better at 33 rpm - try it if you don't believe it! The cover art is drawn by Mikael "Arkki" Arnkil of Antidote and Impaled Nazarene fame.
