APARTMENT 213: Magic Bullet Records Presents Collected Violence Forty-Seven-Track Collection From Cleveland Act


Magic Bullet Records presents Collected Violence, an overstocked arsenal of tracks from Cleveland act APARTMENT 213, as the label introduces the outfit’s back-catalog into digital distribution channels. There’s no two ways about it: Collected Violence is an entirely excessive and unrelenting amount of material. Forty-seven songs in length, there are few humans built to endure such constant ferocity. Such is power violence.

APARTMENT 213 got started in Cleveland, Ohio in late 1993 and was most active during the initial five years as a band. While a formal cessation was never announced or planned, extended breaks became normal for the band. After a couple of split 7″ releases s in 1998, it would be another eight years before the band’s only proper full-length, Cleveland Power Violence, came to light, followed by a split LP with Agoraphobic Nosebleed a year later, and then another three-year break before issuing 2010’s split 7″ with Nothing Is Over, tracks for the This Comp Kills Fascists Vol. 2.

Collected Violence contains nearly everything released by APARTMENT 213, including the Vacancy and Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things EPs, the splits with Gehenna, Thug, Benümb, Dahmer, Forced Expression, and Nothing Is Over, The Power Of Tools Demo, and the tracks from the This Comp Kills Fascists Vol. 2 compilation. The split with Agoraphobic Nosebleed is available through Relapse Records and the Cleveland Power Violence album was also just digitally reissued through Magic Bullet Records, but virtually every other filthy riff from this band is captured in this collection, which is appropriately fitted with artwork by Steak Mtn.

Long out-of-print, 2017 marks the first time that any of these tracks have been officially offered via all streaming and digital service providers worldwide. Magic Bullet Records will release Collected Violence next Friday, November 17th. Find preorders RIGHT HERE.
