New band, new demo. ASID BATERI create an unhinged and abstract hardcore punk - a nod to dark Scandinavian punk, but with a backbone of brutal simplicity akin to Midwestern and DC US hardcore. Strong appeal to fans of classic bands ala Gauze, Void and Necros. The claustrophobic, dark, and brooding overtones are reminiscent of such acts as Cult Ritual and Perspex Flesh. They bought a mic from the guitar store on Friday, banged em out and returned the mic on Sunday. A good reminder that sometimes punk music works best with a sense of urgency. Members of Loma Prieta and Captive Bolt.
