German hardcore punk band, Praiser, will release a “best of” remastered collection of some much-loved band classics spanning the past decade. This little-heard hardcore punk band plays it hard, fast, and unafraid. Their music holds no punches and is as abrasive musically as it is lyrically. The band’s heart is in punk rock ministry, and that sentiment is clearly shown throughout the band’s catalog. Check out the song “I Praise God” below. You’ll be able to purchase the remastered collection via ZAP Records’ Bandcamp beginning January 13.
