FREAK SHOW – The Earth Speech 7″ EP (Blue Sleeves)



FREAK SHOW’s second EP was recorded in 1995 and contains four songs of hardcore punk, although the sound of the band on this release had evolved into a style of post-hardcore music and even what some would call “emo”.
The guitar sound had become less raw and somewhat influenced by Tom Morello of RATM in certain parts of some songs. Notwithstanding this musical evolution, the lyrical content remained highly uncompromising.

Even if Freak Show never gained mainstream recognition during their 5-year span, this EP and their split 7″ with Petrograd were their fans’ favourite releases.
