PUNCH - Demo Tape

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.

HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH - Split w/ PILE OF MAGGOT INFESTED VISCERA

As you know by now I a huge admirer of HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH. I got in touch with Mike the drummer of HOD and I ordered 2 copies of this split tape and a shirt and he charged me 10 Euros!!! First I thought he made a mistake when he converted the total cost including shipping to Germany into Euros. Everybody over here knows that 10 Euros for a shirt, 2 tapes and oversea shipping a almost like getting a gift. Generally I have to pay almost 10 Euros for shipping when I order an Lp from the states. So I asked him if he´s sure about the total in Euros. He was and I was so very happy about the price. Thanks Mike!! This release is limited to 50 Cd - and 50 tape copies.
Okay back to the music. First off I have to tell you that this file only contains the songs from the HOD side of the tape. I don´t dig the POMIV sound at all. Justin from HOD is also playing guitar in POMIV but I can´t stand their style anyway. I just can´t stand gore grind w/ down tuned gutteral vocals (I guess that what those vocals are called nowadays...).
It doesn´t bother me because the HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH songs on this tape are so fucking outstanding. Do you wanna know what speed is? This is like a tornado!! Fast as hell and over shortly after it came by!! And like a real tornado it destroys everything in it´s way!! Everything´s on point like a swiss clockwork and well produced. Bingo, it would have been perfect if it have been longer. It´s marginal longer than 3 minutes!!! Before Chris digitized the tape for me (thx bro) I heard the HOD side and rewinded it over and over again. Mike wrote to me that there will be a discography tape very soon an a new full lenght Lp / Cd out in May / June. So stay on alert and have fun with this short appetizer before the next storm!!

Thx Mike for the stuff an the admission to upload the tape here!
