Riistetyt

Riistetyt’s debut LP Valtion vankina (“As A Prisoner of State”) epitomises the underground movement known as Finnish -82 hardcore punk. Regardless of the album’s undisputed classic status, its availability and reissue history during its 33 years of existence have been patchy at best. Released on Propaganda Records in 1982 and reissued on the US label Havoc in 2005, only a portion of the very first 1982 pressing included a booklet with lyrics and artwork. The Svart reissue contains a repro of the booklet and comes in a gatefold cover with liner notes from singer Lateri.
