Matinee: Photographs from CBGB's 1983-1985

This is a pretty cool video that I found, it has some really cool photos of the punks that use to hang around CB's back in the day. There is also some early AF/Psycho's footage.

Ten songs allegedly recorded on December 30th, 1984 for an lp with the original WarZone lineup featuring Tommy Rat on vocals and Raybeez on drums. What you get here is one future WarZone song(Take A Stand later appeared one the Rabeez-fronted Lower East Side Crew 7") and nine unreleased tracks. The unreleased songs are much slower and punkier sounding than the later WarZone material that we all know and love... the songs are noisy and bass heavy. A live set aparently exists from 1984 with three of these and five other unreleased songs, as well as a cover of The Munsters theme. I dont have that, but I would like it.

Since were on the subject of Merauder. I thought it would be a good idea to upload these demos as well. The first demo is the demo with Minus on vocals. This demo kills, its just really good, heavy hardcore. Some of the heaviest riffs written are on this demo. The second demo is with Eddie Sutton, of Leeway fame. This demo is really hit or miss with a lot of people. I absolutely love it, yet, a lot of people think it is complete garbage. The vocals on this demo compared to anything else by Merauder, are completely different. But I like it, and listen to it quite a bit. If you're into Merauder or NYHC in general, you need to give these two demos a listen.


Merauder-Demo w/Minus
1.Life Is Pain
2.Final War
3.Besiege The Masses
4.Fear Of Sin

Merauder-Demo w/Eddie
1.Find My Way

Bad Seed.

Bad Seed is a Hardcore band out of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, that just released a new demo. Influences include a few NY bands such as Merauder, Cro-Mags, Madball, and Life Of Agony. You can definetly hear the Merauder influence(reminds me of the demo with Minus.) His voice also sounds a bit like Freddy Madball. This demo is heavy all the way through. Four tracks of heavy, anger filled hardcore. If you're into any of the bands mentioned, Or heavier hardcore, check out this band, you will not be disapointed.

1.Swallowing Knives
2.Nothing Is Real
4.World View

is the new song from Bitter End that will be out on their new 7". The riff in the first fast part sounds awesome, then with back vocals (Pretty sure its Griff singing that) make this song sound so pissed off and heavy. The break at 4:50 is hard as nails. I'm dying to hear this live. They play the style of music they want to do well. Five minutes of Hardcore the way it should be, Hard.

You can download the Deathwish Summer Sampler below that has the new Bitter End song and new and unreleased songs from some of the Deathwish/Malfunction releases of the year. Bands included: Killing The Dream, Blacklisted, Cold World, Reign Supreme, Narrows, Trap Them, The Carrier, Life Long Tragedy, Meltdown, Shipwreck a.d., and Pulling Teeth.
