PHIBES: Demo: Cassette

Jul 14, 2011

A present-day East Coast band that sounds like early ‘80s SoCal hardcore punk. Tuneful, driving, and wound up. The pace is somewhere in the middle and they never go for the full-on trash side. Instead, they let the power simmer and brew. Think of early TSOL, Adolescents, and the type. “Silenced Tongues” is the definite standout on here. It has a hard hitting mid-tempo before shifting into a brain-rattling-fast attack. Features a member from Bloodtype. Hopefully, these guys will put out more soon. Good stuff.
