This post is going to be a bit bare bones, seeing how much I actually know about this band and the obscurity of this demo. HOUSE OF BREATH is a post punk/goth band from Los Angeles featuring members of PESSIMIST (which is a hardcore crust/death metal band). While I've seen PESSIMIST play a couple of times, I've only had the chance to see HOUSE OF BREATH play once. Word on the street is that this band is no longer active and actually rarely ever played in the first place. That's a damn shame, because what we have here is some total SISTERS OF MERCY type post-punk/goth/death rock (or whatever you wanna call it). Although this is a 4 track demo, I only managed to get a hold of 3 of the 4 tracks. This demo is perfect for that gloomy train ride to that job we all hate in the morning or to finish off the night with a few beers alone...

ABORTION REELS are one of the best bands in So Cal, yet I still haven't had the chance to see them. They play so rarely, which is extremely unfortunate as this is one of the best demos that came out last year. ABORTION REELS come from the Inland Empire and share members with PESADILLA DISTOPIKA (which if you haven't heard, you should check out what you've been missing by downloading the demo here).
This tape is everything you want in hardcore: ferocious riffs, vicious drum beats, and a front man that sounds crazy as fuck! I couldn't really find that many videos of ABORTION REELS live, but this video at least shows how good they are live:

Take one look at this artwork and you may think this is some old 80's South American punk band, but you'd be (somewhat) mistaken. PURA MANIA comes from Vancouver, BC Canada and this demo is from this year, 2014 (although the insert says 2013). Consisting of Members of FRACASO and SPECTRES (what a combination!), this band has elements of raw 80's South American punk with a slight dark post-punk feel... and it rules! "1000 Años despues del hombre" will have you wanting to shake out of your own skin in public places (just try to show a little restraint, please!). Now to only convince PURA MANIA to come to Los Angeles...

You can download the demo here.

Please comment if the link is down. Mediafire sure likes to delete files it has no business deleting these days...

What's this? More raging hardcore from the Inland Empire? Say it ain't so! This time coming from the non existing beaches of Mentone Beach, CA. BED BUGS is the kind of hardcore that really gets under your skin. It's tough, but not exactly like all the other tough guy stuff that's going around in the scene right now (which is a good thing). You can hear a sneak peek of their EP below. I hope you dig it as much as I do! It will be out sometime this year on MATA LA MUSICA DISCOS (check out their site here). 

EDIT: I've just noticed that this shitty Cincopa thing has a limit. I unfortunately can't upload the full BED BUGS demo here, but I'll try to put it up once its been properly released. Sorry! 
You can catch BED BUGS (along with CRIMSON SCARLET and DEAD CULT) on March 22 at The Dog Haus in South Central LA. It's gonna be a hell of a show!

Hey! For all of you that are lucky enough to still be coming around to this blog, here's a little treat for ya. Litovsk is a 4 piece post punk band hailing from the coastal city of Brest, France. Their sound is very dark and gloomy, similar to bands you'd probably find in Portland. We were lucky enough to see them play while we were in Brest and I recently found their demo online. Now if I can only get my hands on the actual tape...

You can download their demo (and I suggest you do) here.

Here's a video I found of Litovsk on Vimeo:

I haven't had a chance to really update the blog in several months. I actually haven't even really been home either! Well, I finally uploaded the master tracks for the GENERACION SUICIDA Lp and the record up for sale on our bandcamp. You can start ordering it through Going Underground Records as well. This record took a really long time to complete, so I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Buy the digital copy here:

We'll be going to Europe in December. I'll post the dates up once I get them all confirmed.
