Sunshine Ward: Demo cassette
Demo tape from this new Boston band that is comprised of most of the final lineup of Brain Killer. This is actually a little faster than I remember Brain Killer being... it's still a bit crusty, but has more of a raw, early European hardcore quality to the sound than Brain Killer's more straightforward, Cimex-influenced stuff. With so many bands lately on the raw, crusty sound the more straightforwardly hardcore sound that Sunshine Ward have arrived at really sticks out... actually, it kind of reminds me of a rawer, noisier version of Direct Control... the songs are that catchy and memorable. A very, very strong demo and I can't wait to hear more.
