Originally released on 7/15/02, Emergency Numbers would become the final album from Washington, DC punk/hardcore band Majority Rule. 2018 marks the album now being issued by Dark Operative, a new company from the creative team behind Magic Bullet Records (the original issuing label). Emergency Numbers is six songs of the ultimate realization of Majority Rule's sound. Every aspect had been so dialed in and mastered that the band only ended up needing two of the ten days allotted and booked for recording the album. What remained was a true masterpiece in the sonic scope and textures possible within hardcore. Along with fellow pacesetters like BOTCH and ISIS at the time, the band somehow shattered tradition while upholding what made hardcore and heavy music enticing in the first place.
