Would CVLT Nation be what it is without MRR? The answer is hell no! That zine changed changed my life and gave me information that I still use until this very day. Check out this portrait essay of 80’s American Hardcore. Looking at these pictures brings back many memories of friends that I have lost, but also of fun days that bled into nights! So journey with me down memory lane – I know it sounds corny, but this is just how I’m feeling today! R.I.P. DREW BERNSTEIN.
