Tantrum: Twisted in Anguish LP
Originally released in 1997 on Vicious Circle, "Twisted In Anguish", the

Monolithic guitars, monstrous bass groove and relentless drumming, Tantrum is ready to fight! At the end of the record, "Fault" a unifying song written with two basses gives you that irrepressible urge to flip back the record to side A. Black vinyl in full colour sleeve with digital download coupon. Limited edition of 300 copies.
