A few days ago wess from black hole kids contacted me and asked me if i was in the willing mood to post their demo. As you can see on your right : "Any d.i.y band that wants to be posted here can send me an e-mail and we can work it out...". So, i told wess : "hope that you're into d.i.y and not in the alternative suck companies that keep sucking dry hardcore punk" and his answer was : "D.i.y. or die". What else to say? I'm very glad to post his band.
Black hole kids is a hardcore punk band from birmingham, alabama. I don't know when these guys started playing together, but i guess this is a fresh new band if i can judge from the infos on their blog. They have already played something like 4 or 5 gigs.
Music wise, black hole kids are playing a mix of mid-tempo melodic crust with "sad" guitar rifs alongside some "swallow-me-down" hardcore punk. Even if the production is not so good and you can't hear all the instruments so clear, and the vocals is not so powerfoul - i'll prefer it a lot more if it was more "ugly" and angry - nevertheless, this is a very-good attempt for a band's first demo and i hope that we'll see a very good ear-destroying vinyl coming out some day soon. Until then, i'll keep listening this demo 'cos every time becomes better and better... cheers
