Killer lo-fi hardcore sang in Spanish from Austin, TX.

Our take: Perro de Prenda is another killer hardcore band from Texas. Their tape is out on the B.L.A.P. label (presumably named after a Koro song and affiliated with other Texas hardcore bands in this vein) and they share a lot of characteristics with the other bands you might know from this scene, including the very raw, noisy, and analog recording style. While Perro de Prenda is as intense as those other bands, their style is a little different. Mostly that comes down to the drumming, which never breaks into a full-on fast punk beat, but holds down a lot of tom-heavy, anarcho-influenced rhythms. That gives Perro de Prenda some of the brooding menace of early Amebix, though the riffing is in a fast hardcore style so I don’t think anyone would say they sound like Amebix at all. On Vol. 1 you get four tracks of this anarcho-influenced hardcore and a fifth track that sounds like it uses some backwards tape effects. Ending on that artier note makes this feel even more like a killer old anarcho demo. Great stuff, and I see there’s a Vol. 2 up on bandcamp, so let’s hope we see a tape version of that soon.
