White Walls - Demo & Live 02.06.2010
I saw this band last night in Chicago. The set was great, the singer has a great voice and a pretty tight group of musicians as well- no sloppiness. I think they played all their songs too. White Walls play a kind of discordant, ugly brew of hardcore, not too different than the recent Sex/Vid and Cult Ritual. Feedback ridden guitars and shrieking, dissonant vocals take place as a muddy tone gravitates with My War style riffing. The demo is a 5 track, 8 minute long ripper (My favorite song being "The Great Excuse". Mosh.), courtesy of the band. The live recording takes 3 new songs, two from the demo, and a cover of Nirvana's "Territorial Pissings". Ohio takes heed to another young hardcore great. I guess they have members of menacing Ohio band Order 66 (Maybe it's the singer?). Demo pictured on the left, Live 02.06.2010 the right. I think the demo is in it's second pressing, email the band for a copy, or something: http://whitewallswhitewalls.blogspot.com
