BLANK: Demo: CDEP

These three from Hanover, Germany got something good going on. Usually, I expect a bit of disorganization in demos since band members are still trying to learn what works for them. That said, the first two tracks were not that rich in sound structure and fell into the punk pitfall of having a one-line chorus on repeat. “Dig a Hole” is the anomaly with a festering post punk guitar line that explodes in a deluge of drums and guitars. My favorites are “Bilbao” and “The Devil in Miss Jones” for their blistering guitar work. For a demo, this has surprisingly good acoustics. Keep up the good work, guys. Recommended.
