Hatröss - Echoes Of War

! Hatröss !

Another reader submission. Here is Hatröss, a crusty black metal metallic noise band from Bogota, Colombia. Old-school raw crust punk & black metal that Sounds like a lo-fi Venom, Hellhammer, Discharge orgy of noise... & that is music to my ears.

Feral Babies - Demo

Man i suck... I got this demo last year and just got around to posting it up..... Feral Babies is a hardcore punk band from Tampa, FL. Music is primitive, raw, angry and fast but maintains a catchy and melodic vibe to it. Similar to late 70's Cali punk acts like Circle Jerks, Germs, Dickies and JFA....

I really dig this. It lives up to the similarities posted above. I'd also throw in the word TIGHT! This is a great little slice of old school sytyled Hardcore. Before you know it the 5 song demo is over and your left saying i want more!!! Sweet.

Check out their FACEBOOK page where you can get the 7 inch and check out more pics and info or download the demo HERE:

Harbors - Recessive Departure

Even though i started this out as an old demo "TAPE" blog i get a few reader submissions from new demos and i TRY and give them all a listen. Here is one i got a while back that i figured i'd post up. Even though this is a far cry from MY old kind of hardcore i gotta give these youngsters some credit this has some balls and is noisy and angry in all the right spots. points taken away for the straight edge shirt the kid is wearing in their FACEBOOK picture since i NEVER realy got that whole thing.... But here ya go a pretty cool 1 track album by Harbors from Albuquerque NM.

Recorded Friday, February 10, 2012 at Gold Manor in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

released 11 February 2012

The Underachievers - Skip The Salad Demo 1986

Wow.... It's been forever since i posted.... I promised this one to an old friend and it took me a while to dig it out but here is the great & under-rated demo from The Underachievers. The Skip The Salad demo came out in 1986. This is pretty typical hardcore punk stuff from NJ from that time period but doesn't get the respect it deserves. Don't know how many copies of these gout out back in the day but i would guess not that many... THE UNDERACHIEVERS were - Bruce Boyd (drums), Watson (guitar), George Schnurr (vocals), Chris Lough (bass)- I think Jon Kleiman one time drummer from Monster Magnet was in the band for a minuet too?

I think some of these songs were to be pressed to a 7 inch but that never happened. Great & Fun NJHC. Enjoy!
