HARD FOUL demo tape 2020

625 Productions

So cool to see Dan from Spazz, Funeral Shock, etc., still doing HC and being productive after years and years. Other band members also come from Plutocracy, Agents Of Satan, and Funeral Shock. Eight raging tunes that seem to be heavily themed on NBA basketball. I love this shit, and wish there was a lyric sheet so I could get the full scope. The tape starts off sounding very East Coast HC… then by song 2 and forward the true powerviolence starts to kick in. Loud bass riffage, Dan’s killer guitar riffs and fast blasts and bursts keep it fun. I’m sure Dan prolly hates the term PV by now and cringes when it’s used to describe his projects… but you can tell by his playing that it’s just stuck there in his blood forever. The other side of the tape is a really well done live set from a radio show. Oh, and the demo side is recorded at none other than Bart Thurber at the legendary House Of Faith.  Cool stuff. Support. (NW)

LOW FORM demo_1

This is done by Western Mass punk hardcore guys who are playing more of an alternative style that gets me thinking of the late 80s or early 90s college rock scene (for lack of a better word).  Its really good especially for a three piece.  I’d say it has parts that sometimes remind me of the Cult, or even Danzig (just without the heavy). The recording is stellar with the song Purgatory really being the stand out to me, but the songs are all catchy as hell.  It’ll be interesting to see if these guys are able to move into getting into the vinyl game or finding a label to help them spread their word.
