Demo: Demo 2023
Label: Death Breath Records (Indonesia)
Release date: September 1, 2023
Once again I was feeling the need to consume some punk rock. Also—as usual for my recent music adventures I wasn’t feeling like listening to a full length album. I typed “Punk Rock Demo 2023” into the YouTube search bar and after a brief search I came upon Demo 2023 from the band Hear It!
First and foremost I need to say that I love the guitar tone. It reminds me of something you would hear from one of the early Punk-o-rama albums. Also—aside from the vocals I am reminded of early “The Offspring”. When it comes to the vocals they are very simplistic and “bursting” and they give off a Discharge vibe! The drums are pretty damn tight too!
This was release number 5 from “Death Breath Records”…I have never heard of this label but if this is the kind of stuff they are putting out I would happily support them with their future (and current) endeavors!
The upload of this I found was on the Felopunk account on YouTube. I have definitely listened to my fair share of tunes from this account—and once again they seem to have offered something pretty rad with this one!
And hey! This is from Indonesia! I don’t know too much about Indonesian punk—but this kills it! Give it a listen eh? -Devin J. Meaney
