Revision - Demo 2015

Revision are a new band coming straight out of Southern California, with a sound that is nothing but pure Hardcore. Kind of takes me back to those early/mid 2000's.

When I heard a snippet of audio a few months back on Instagram and I was hooked. Seriously one of the best demos of 2014, and I'm stoked on hearing what else comes out from these dudes.

Revision - Demo 2015

Red Son - Set Everything In Motion

This is hands down one of my favorite releases ever done by any band in any genre. Maybe it has more pull on me for personal reasons, but the fact remains that this album and band had something that I didn't see in most bands of the time. It is a bit sad that the band is now defunct, and not very many people outside of AZ know of it's existence, but I guess it's never too late to discover a rare gem.

This was the first, and only Full Length from Arizona's own Red Son (ex members of Where Eagles Dare, Run With The Hunted, Oubskurity, etc.).  In total, I think they had: a demo, 7", This LP and Two EP's following this release.

I can't even count how many times I saw Red Son, and at times I even forget the venues at which they played, but I know it was always a good time when they played. Whether or not I was sick or tired, i tried to make it out to a show. Now that I look back at all those times I rushed to catch their set and their set only, I'm happy I did so. I truely miss this band.

Blindside USA - Demo Tape 2014

I love it when I have friends making some of my favorite music to listen to. Over the last few years. I've been lucky to have so many friends release amazing records, and this year has been nothing but the same.

Especially with this Blindside USA Demo. With the first listen, I already knew I found my favorite demo of 2014.  I can't tell you how many times I've listen to this Demo. both on MP3 and Cassette. All throughout writing this, I've had it playing and many times I've stop typing because I'm air drumming. Seriously, such a banger from begging to end. 

Let's Fucking Do It, and show so love by downloading the Demo and buying a shirt and tape. 
Kansas City Hardcore In Effect.

108 - Threefold Misery

I've been slacking hard on posting anything, but hopefully this next year keeps me in the busy state of mind to where this becomes a thing that I have to do, not just do whenever. But till then, I will do by best. Starting off with the best fucking 108 album to ever exist.

Not sure as to why I had uploaded this, my guess is for a friend, but whatever it was i'm sure sharing it with all of you is just as good as my original intent.

So for all your headbanging needs, I present you with 108's Threefold Misery.

Crime In Stereo - 2004 Demos

For some of us, Crime In Stereo will always be that Hardcore band that put out one hell of split with Kill Your Idols, but as it has come, they are more widely known as that Alternative Punk band from Bridge Nine Records. I'm not complaining in the least bit, I actually enjoy all of CIS, but as much as I love Is Dead, I will always love early CIS.

And since they have come back into existence, even stating that they will release new music as well, I figured why not give a little taste of where the band came from. I could of posted the OG Three Song Demo, but I see that posted everywhere, so I figured why not give yous guys something a little less known.

I came across this demo a very long time ago, so long, I don't really remember what I got it, but here you go. Nothing really new here, these were the demos for the Explosives LP, and all made it except for Of Return, which ended up on Love 7" released in 2007.

Not much change from these songs to the LP versions. but you can defiantly hear the pre production sound in these. I just wanted to post this as an appreciation to a band that over the years, have continued to write and preform amazing music. I can not wait for more shows and new music.

Brother's Keeper - Unreleased Demos

So it's been a while, but i finally got everything situated but enough talk, time for more music.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love Brother's Keeper (I'm pretty sure Continuum was my first vinyl record i bought) and even when other's might hate on the band, to me they will always be one of my favorite.

If you get a change to listen to their entire discography, I suggest doing so to really get the full feel of how amazing this band was. If you listen to Fantasy Killer than listen to something like the 2 Dollar Bill tape or Shadowcast EP you will hear such a difference yet such similarity in those recordings. Not many bands can incase me in their discog. like Brother's Keeper.

So years ago, I believe EMS of BK ran a blog that uploaded the whole BK Discography, and of course I downloaded it but the best part of it was hearing these demos that i never knew existed. One of those, and my absolute favorite, was the very last songs that BK ever did. When I heard them, it automatically upset me because i knew that Brother's Keeper wouldn't write and release their best album ever.

The first songs was more rough demos than the next four, but still good. But really, those last 4 songs were jaw dropping. So much so, that here we are years later and i'm still dying to tell people how fucking amazing these tracks are. I've been a fan for years, and I honestly that nothing could top BK late 90's, but damn, that changed with these songs.

It was always funny to because since me getting these tracks, I've always told people that they are my favorite from BK but of course, no one knew of them. So here we are, me sharing what I believe is some of the best music written in the 00's. I hope all y'all hear what I hear with these songs!'

Kashyyyk - Purpose Escapes

Kashyyyk, or like most of us call it "What the fuck does that say?" 
has nothing to do with Star Wars, but more to do with Soulja Boy.

Scary sounding Heavy/Crusty/Punk/Hardcore from the shitville known as Arizona, Kashyyyk are here to punish your ear drums and make you see this worthless piece of shit world we live in for what it's really worth. 

If you're into this EP, be sure to pick up a Cassette from their web store because it has all their old Demo's on one Tape!

And be on the look out for new tunes from these boys, a full length is on the horizon.
