Dye: Demo Cassete
Demo tape from this new band out of Austin, Texas featuring members of Criaturas and Vaaska. It's funny that they're called Dye, because they bear more than a passing resemblance (particularly the vocals) to the UK band DiE, albeit augmented with the manic, 1-2-1-2 punk beat of bands like S.H.I.T. and Crazy Spirit. If I'm going to listen to hardcore like this I want it to be raw, wild, and out of control, and this definitely fits the bill. You know that this is going to be awesome given the personnel involved, and I'm happy to say that it rips just as hard as you think it would. Recommended.
