Chow Line: demo cassette

Edger Records

$4.50

Our take: Some pretty authentic-sounding New Breed compilation-style NYHC here. The vocals are tough, the recording is super raw, and the riffs are fast and ever so slightly metallic. The label description notes that there's some UKHC a la Ripcord / Heresy in the mix too, but really the bursts of really fast could be attributed to a Straight Ahead influence just as easily. If your idea of NYHC is Fury of Five or something then this may not be what you're looking for, but if you've played the New Breed comp into the ground and love bands like Absolution, Life's Blood, and Raw Deal then this is for you.
