California thrash punks Suicidal Tendencies appeared in the early '80s with a unique take on the emerging skatepunk sound and no end of aggressive, angsty lyrics and controversial subject matter. Thirty years after their debut, they return with 13, their first album of new material in 13 years and coincidentally their 13th album. Produced by Suicidal frontman Mike Muir, the album includes 13 tracks of the type of petulant, cathartic, thrashy hardcore the band is known for and includes cameos by Larry Linkogle and Jimmy Fitzpatrick of Metal Mulisha as well as a gang of professional skaters adding their voices to the track "Show Some Love... Tear It Down." ~ Fred Thomas
