Heroin - Discography (1997)



Speaking of early San Diego hardcore (one of my favorite subjects.. ^_^) Heroin pretty much laid a good portions of the groundwork for all the current bands that exist in the reborn emo/ screamo scene. Though back then I dont remember many of these bands being described as screamo, it is still a decent enough descriptor for the thrashy guitars, chaotic rhythms and of course, the screamy vocals...

Heroin were a pummeling force and deserve recognition being that most of the member have moved on to other bands that stayed ahead of the pack. Bands such as Antioch Arrow and Clikatat Ikatowi both feature members of Heroin and were both forerunners of the second wave of bands that would lead to the more current crop of bands like Orchid.

Ah, but enough plotting the course of obscure musicians creating chaptic music. The point is the originators remain as powerful and as important as their current counterparts, and its no wonder that this form of music has remained in the hearts of so many. Its visceral appeal is such that even the most primitive of human beings can feel the fire of passon with which these songs were commited to tape...

Heroin was released mostly on Gravity records, an awesome San Diego label run by Heroin guitarist Matt Anderson. The label still exists and is currently releasing a variety of awesome bands. Go check it out.
