Video: Integrity – ‘Palm Sunday’

Integrity‘s Palm Sunday release is an infamous one, and has to be put into perspective for full understanding. Hardcore in 1992 was, much like it is in 2013, a game of conformity. Youth crew had taken over the scene and spread their overwhelmingly positive message to the now masses. Meanwhile, Cleveland was brewing something much more menacing in Integrity, a hateful blend of hardcore with the darkness and riffs of metal, and lyrics to match. Integrity was a stark contrast to the music of their peers, and as such, inspired hatred or devotion amongst the scene. But a lot of hatred.

Fast forward to 2006 and the release of Integrity’s Palm Sunday, a live record/DVD documenting a 1992 live show. The live record captures the hardcore legends in arguably their best lineup, and at a show that will live in infamy; allegedly both a shooting and a stabbing occurred at the venue that night (Dwid is seen shooting a gun in the video, reportedly the origin of the rumor). The DVD is an excellent peek into the band’s “classic” lineup with the Melnicks, which some have compared to a Metallic K.O. for the hardcore set. High praise, for sure.
