At DCXX, we always welcome suggestions from the readers on what they'd like to see here. Yesterday I got a great suggestion from Geoff TDT to do a running piece on Agnostic Front's classic New York Hardcore album, "Victim In Pain". The idea is that since Bridge 9 Records will be releasing an official re-release of "Victim In Pain" next month, it would be interesting to hear what some NYHC veterans have to say about this album. The question was simple, "What does Victim In Pain mean to you?". First at bat is Absolution/Burn/Die 116, NYHC heavy hitter guitarist, Gavin Van Vlack. -Tim DCXX
Victim In Pain was a voice out of the darkness of old New York summoning hardcore kids everywhere that they were not alone.
In a time when we weren't of the numbers that we have attained today with hardcore's current popularity, it told hardcore and punk kids that they could make a change in the world that was scaring us to death...and we did. - Gavin Van Vlack
