California hardcore punk cult classics EXECUTIONER will be releasing a career-spanning discography collection via Boston bruisers PATAC Records. The Anthology CD features the band’s entire 1982 recorded output, painstakingly restored and remastered on one convenient compact disc or digital download! Comes housed in a foldout Crass Records-styled sleeve with a full poster and extensive liner notes that provide an inside look at what was going on at the time in the 1982 San Jose hardcore scene.

EXECUTIONER played with bands like DEAD KENNEDYS, BAD BRAINS, CRUCIFIX, FANG, etc. but never had any official releases besides a handful of tracks on a skate cassette released by THE FACTION called ‘Growing Pains.’  This CD compiles all studio, demo, ‘Growing Pains’ tracks as well as live recordings, and features artwork by Winston Smith (DEAD KENNEDYS, LARD, GREEN DAY, ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES, etc.)
