I always found it really interesting how Integrity were influenced by bands like Septic Death and GISM (notice the GISM/Sakevi vocal influence on the above song) . Integrity were the kings of mystery in the 90s and even though they were signed to Victory Records, they certainly did not have a generic “Victory” sound to fall back on. Everything about Integrity was original and intense. That was part of the intrigue and mystique. In retrospect, I find a lot of 90s hardcore to be laughable at best. This is not the case with Integrity. Check out these rare karaoke style Septic Death covers and celebrate the history of Cleveland hardcore.
