Porvenir Oscuro: demo cassette

Self-Released

$4.00

Demo cassette from this new NYC band.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new NYC band and the reaper on the cover should give you a good indication of what to expect... this is full-bore hardcore punk that doesn't give you a moment to catch your breath. While it doesn't have nearly the level of insane musicianship (no crazy guitar solos here!), the overall vibe reminds me very much of the Vaaska / Criaturas axis of bands down in Austin. Not only does the singer have a high-pitched bark that kind of reminds me of Dru from Criaturas' voice, but also like those bands, Porvenir Oscuro seem influenced as much by classic Finnish punk like Lama as they do d-beat or other other frequently reaper-adorned musics. In a word, this is hardcore... fast, raw, and to the point. If you like any of the aforementioned bands I guarantee you'll be feeling this. Recommended.
