Pittsburgh miscretins from various bands (EEL,Druglust,Pissheads etc) cranking out some US meets japanese HC (could be right off the bat of the Trash till death' comp).Since this first recording as a demo Eric and Vince (Blood Pressure,Sickoids,etc etc )have joined ranks for second guitar and drums,so im sure this bunch will only grow stronger of monster to come.
Glued sleeve/double sided insert


Our take: Debut EP from yet another killer hardcore band from Pittsburgh. D.O.G. caught my attention when someone in my social media feed referenced the Thrash ’til Death compilation in relation to them… while a lot of people rep Japanese hardcore, not a lot of people seem to ride for that compilation or the particular strain of punk on it. Of the four bands on TTD, D.O.G. remind me the most of Systematic Death… while they don’t ever quite hit the near-blasting speeds of Systema, their metallic riffing and predilection for half-time breakdowns seems to come straight from records like Final Insider. D.O.G. have definitely found an interesting little cranny of the punk canon to mine for influences, and the top-notch quality of musicianship and recording that is associated with this scene (which has also birthed bands like Blood Pressure, S.L.I.P., Concealed Blade, and many others) means that everything is executed and delivered with maximum power.
