Awesome album indeed. No idea what they did afterwards. Maybe they're still on their knees thanking their god to allow them to do such an awesome record.

Yeah, one of them went onto Training For Utopia and currently sings for the even worse band known as Demon Hunter.

I Saw them play in Seattle in the late '90s with I think One King Down and Brothers Keeper.

ha just so happened to have it uploaded if anyone needs it.. it's definitely one of those releases that define a moment in time. sadly i never got to see them live.. the closest they ever got to me that show was canceled.

i always thought their 7" was great, but their cd was pretty mediocre, at best. and the only 2 good songs were from the 7", anyway...

Of course I would not. Even after all these years not listening to them, I still remember that 'Neglected' was pretty solid record.

Saw them in Nor Cal in the mid 90's with Unconquered and Last Standing. Pretty funny show actually; FP started to unplug Last Standing's gear in the middle of their set. A small riot ensued. Most Reno folks left.

My favorite quote from that show:

to FP "...why aren't you guys straight edge?"

FP : "...We are Christian".

Still, "Suffering of the Masses" is amazing. First time I can recall bass drops in a hardcore record.

There was a Focal Point -demo on sale at eBay sometime ago. Anyone got that? I guess it came before the full-length.

Yeah Kimmo I did see that demo, I wish I picked it up because I have almost everything Focal point ever did (including their merch too), except for that demo. I also have a newspaper article/interview that the singer Robbie gave me. I'm going to scan it on here soon.

I have a friend that owns the demo. He recently moved, but when he unpacks everything, he's going to work on converting it for us.
