Desperate hours hailing from Goleta, Ca and in their first 7'' released last year on Konton Crasher records they deliver four raging d-beat hardcore tracks. I buy this 7'' from the fellow skate punk bak mainly cause i liked so much the cover art. When i asked him what they are all about he told me that they sounding like DOOM. Hell yeah, Desperate Hours remind of Doom a lot but as you already note they are huge scandi freaks (don't forget to mention here that desperate hours is an Anti-Cimex song). These guys can easily described as an ass-kicking raw punk band not unlike those LA or NY bands whose fame come prior to their skills, bands like Cervix, Perdition, Mauser, Mata Mata, Kruel and the list can go on. A little bit of distortion, a little bit of raging d-beat, some scandi crust and some Doom and we have Desperate Hours. Buy this 7'', you won't be disappointed.
