Overpower - Demo 2011

Wow, what we have here?
A new band from some old pogo wolves of the german hardcore scene.
My knowledge-owner informer told me that the band consists of ex members of brutal masterminds BURIAL and THE NOW-DENIAL. I don't know if that's accurate but I believe him and propably you'll do the same when you'll listen the first song.

This is fuckin' rock-driven, fast forward hardcore punk the good way. Their singer yelling his lungs out – not the japcore style as you might except – with a true sincerity and a knife in his hand. Yep, that's fucking deadfull hardcore guys. The guitar is over the whole production and this is the main reason, I think, this demo is so “strong” and tight. The riffs are the usual speedy freaked-out ala Paintbox illness while the drums and bass lines offers cathcy dancing songs reminding me the first 7'' of Burial without the deathside vocals or the Doomtown Lp (check for example “the power to be” or “24 hours”). This demo have been released as a limited lp (300 copies) and it's maybe the best album I listened to lately alongside the ropes second demo. Thanx goes out to stathis who pointed his finger to this shit.

Check here for the lyrics of the album
