Raging hardcore from Texas

Our take: Demo cassette from this new band out of San Antonio, Texas. They have a very straightforward punk/hardcore sound with the vocals really loud and up front in the mix. For some reason when snotty vocals like this are so loud in the mix I'm almost always reminded of bands like Dead Kennedys and Subhumans... I suppose those bands don't have a lot in common on the surface, but they both have very distinctive vocalists and adventurous musicians (including particularly talented lead guitar players), and I'd say that Death Cult share those characteristics as well. While this isn't as polished or as retro-minded as a lot of what gets hyped in the hardcore scene these days, there's something kind of innocent about this that I really like... it feels a bit like I'm discovering punk again. This definitely won't be for everyone, but I love the way that Death Cult sound so unencumbered by 40 years of punk history.
