One thing I always loved about Immigrant Sun Records was the packaging. Sean Mallinson always did an incredible job and made the layouts so special, as if you felt like this was a limited release and you were lucky enough to pick one up. Morning Again released two records on Immigrant Sun, this being their first. The cover was a nice glossy full color print and instead of the usual one sheet insert, the label made a booklet held together with twine. Inside mine, there was also a flyer for upcoming releases which I scanned as well. I don't own the second release "To Die A Bitter Death" but Justin has it so Ill get him to scan it. I think the label has since folded, which is a shame, but if you can track down any of their releases I would strongly suggest doing so.

Saw M.A. at Syracuse Fest in '97. Their set blew me away, so I bought this 7". Wish you'd included a link to digital version.

The tracks from this were collected and made available on the cd "The Fallen...The Few That Remain" released by Eulogy Recordings. The tracks are still in print, thats why I didnt include a link

This is my alltime favourite hardcore 7"
I taped it for everybody and made so many people listen to it. I got totally mad if anybody didn't love it as much as I did.
I lent the 7" to a bandmate and his girlfriend managed to crack it, Damn.
