I Uploaded this classic NYHC 7" to go with the Jason O'toole interview below. For anyone that has never heard Life's Blood, you really need to. Angry hardcore ala late 80's!! Read on...


  1. I've always wondered what happened to O'toole and Life's Blood. Such great music they dished out. Defiance was the first hardcore record I have ever purchased. I still listen to it every now and then. Such a deep message each song portrays.

  2. I just bought the Sticks And Stones/Life'sBlood split for $20. What a steal! As much as I liked Born Against, I liked LB so much more. I put this e.p. up there with the Victim In Pain LP, The CXA 7",and AOQ LP as one of the best timeless NYHC records.

  3. thank you! this is my favorite nyc xhcx record of all time!!!!!!

  4. NY HC but not really NYHC....

    FANTASTIC record

  12. I picked up this 7" in '96 while I was home from college. I listened to it once, and when I got back a friend of my room mate talked me into trading it to him for I don't remember what, regretted it ever since. Thanks for putting this up here.
