Conspiracy: demo cassette



Demo cassette from this new raw punk band from New York.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new NYC punk band, and dang it's a ripper! I'm not sure if they're deliberately going for a Crucifix-type thing or what, but I'm definitely getting that vibe with riffs that seem like they're inspired in equal parts by USHC and Discharge... and one track even begins with a spoken intro a la "Annihilation." The production is kind of perfect as well, somehow both clear and raw at the same time, and dense and heavy but also a little thin and 4-track-y. I mean, the reference points are obvious, but at the same time this doesn't really sound like what pretty much any other d-beat hardcore-type bands are doing right now, and more importantly, it just flat-out rips. Definitely recommended!
