Trembling Hands - Demo

New Bay Area grind style hardcore band. Some may say "powerviolence". If that gets you wet, be my guest. As a rule, I find that this kind of stuff usually sounds good, no matter how rehashed or used and abused this sound can be. Even shitty grind sounds pretty cool in comparison to a lot of stuff out there. (The same can be said for shitty hardcore as well (and I dont mean Crabcore or any other "cores") I just tend to be biased towards liking it.)

So with that said, I often will move on rather quickly from grind-like, power violence, but this demo has me going back for more... Though not re-inventing the wheel, they know what theyre doing and they know how they want to hurt you. If you relent and let them in yr head, then yr doing the proper masochistic thing.

They will be touring at the end of the summer. Tapes and CDs to appear at the end of the month. Get on it.


As for the rest of the site. I told a few people I would do posts about albums that I was really into. There are a ton of other things I wanted to write about.... All in all, I just havent made the time. So, my sincerest apologies to those who may have been waiting for a post, and more apologies to any of you who have wondered if I was going to keep updating this site. As of now, the answer is 'yes', I will continue to update though I cant say how much or when. As of now its looking like once a month, but you never know what can happen.

Suffice to say, life is good and the summer is always about the outdoors anyway. Maybe the winter will bring back the urge to nerd out to my favorite music.

Until then!
