Review/Stream: Deaf To Reason-Demo 2017


Deaf To Reason are a new heavy/metallic hardcore band from Tampa, Florida. Featuring members of noteworthy bands such as Blistered and Fourth Son, the band's 2017 demo speaks for itself with 4 incredibly hard hitting hardcore songs. This is one of the best demo's I've heard all year, and fans of bands such as the aforementioned above as well as bands such as Foundation, Integrity and Strife would be playing themselves if they didn't check this out immediately. Stream the entire demo below, and keep an eye out as I'm sure the band will have some new material brewing soon that will be more than worth keeping an eye out for.

Review/Stream: Pickpocket-Demo


Pickpocket are a new punk/noise/experimental band out of Tampa, Florida. On their debut demo, the band churns out 4 angular post punk songs with a lo-fi/one mic recording that fits snugly within their sound. This release is a promising sign of things to come and will appeal to fans of bands such as Fugazi, Trumans Water and The Ex among others. A recommended listen for fans of strange, forward thinking punk music. You can stream the demo below and can also download it from their bandcamp for free/donations. Keep an eye out for more to come from this promising new band.
