Genre: Punk Rock
Label: Cult Maternal Records
Length: 10 Minutes (Short)
My Rating: 5/8
I just stumbled across a copy of this on the internet. I really don't know much about this band. However, they come across as a relatively new band that could potentially make inroads to greatness. My guess is that they are from or near Tampa Bay, Florida, because of this e-mail address:
Well, that is the address you could have hit up if you wanted to purchase a copy of this cassette tape (it's out of print, now). The band itself plays a fiery thrashfest of punk magic with brutal screamed vocals, so if you like more "extreme" forms of punk and metal, then this iz for you. Anyways, here's the review:
1. Value Without Purpose
Starts with some heavy riffs as an intro, and then the song goes into hyper-fast mode, with vocals so rough that you can't really even understand what the guy's saying... which is pretty good, to be honest! The song gets even FASTER at the very end. Aggressive as fuck!
A very badass intro, but then the song gets really fast like the previous song again. The vocals are more intense than the last, though. The ending is relatively slow compared to the rest of the song.
Dark-sounding riff. The song sounds like it's not gonna be as fast as the first two, which iz okay, 'cause there's more time to take it all in, but then before you know it, the super-fast chorus kicks in. That's the makeup of the song. Slower verses, faster choruses. Good song!
4. Cling to Objectivity
You actually hear his voice go down a few pitches, here! Speedy, angry, thrashy. Two thirds through the song, the beat gets weird for a moment, until it speeds up again with an almost thrash-metalish riff.
5. Bad Blood/Fervor
A two-parter! Starts with the riff, and then the drums and vocals, and there are backing vocals here which are lower-pitched than the singer's screams. Ends with a more mellow tempo. That's "Bad Blood". Immediately afterwards is "Fervor", which is even angrier and faster than Bad Blood, but there's a lot more diversity in the beats here!
A pretty short, fast song. Probably my least favorite song on the tape, but it's alright. And that's all, folks!
This demo tape can be described as wild, angry, fast, and insane. A lot of hardcore fans will enjoy this. The songs are good, but it's not quite at the "classic" calibur. Anyways, the tape is apparently out of print, so don't feel too guilty about downloading a free copy of it online. A studio record is supposedly going to be recorded in not too long, so expect to hear/see more from these dudes. And... I'm out!
