Heavy Hands: demo cassette

Self Released

$4.50

Our take: Demo cassette from this new band out of Portland, and while the label describes it as NYHC, I'm here to assure you that it's the good kind of NYHC, not the annoying, boring, macho mosh-part type. In fact, the super intense vocals on this demo actually remind me a bit of Torso, and the more I think about it the more I think that if you could somehow completely erase the Totalitär influence from Torso then you might end up with something very much like Heavy Hands. In other words, it's super punk but also not afraid of a big, mid-paced mosh riff here and there. Don't let the cover (which looks like it could have come from a Triple-B release) fool you, as this is definitely of wider interest to the punk community.
