I guess Chris is the only person who´s not overwhemled by San Franciscos PUNCH. Their 7" striked like a bomb and everybody´s waiting for the new album on Discos Huelga/625 Thrash which will be released soon!
In the meantime you should check out their 2007 demo tape (Thx to Olli for providing me a copy). Okay the demo only contains two songs that are not on the 7" but who cares? Ultra high speed hardcore thrash with a female singer that sounds so incredible pissed. No long guitar feedbacks here, no sludgy parts, no time to breath deeply here. Absolutely insane stuff. Cool lyrics as well, about veganism and medical improvidence for example.
I´d love to see this band playing live and if you live in Japan you should check them out because they are going on tour there in june! I hope that they´ll come over to Europe some day!!
This tape was limited to 100 copies so you won´t find an original copy so easily. Go download it here.
