Man, there has been some kick ass music coming out of the Vegas music scene as of late, and this band Moon Blood is one of the bands doing us proud. I don't know a thing about them, never saw them play, but a friend tipped me off to their demo, and said I would probably hate it, but I'm glad to say they were wrong - waaaaayyy wrong, which just goes to show me that they don't know me at all, because I really dig this. It's really good.
I don't know if this is a demo or not. If it is, it's recorded pretty good. Upfront, snotty vocals, buzzsaw roaring guitar, 1-2 1-2 simple oompa loompa Punk beats, all put together very well. Everything in the mix is dry, which gives it that early U.K. '82 Anarcho sound, which is the sound I guess they're after. Think Vice Squad, Dirt, Hagar The Womb, etc., maybe even a little Bikini Kill for reference points if you must. Being only 5 songs long, with each song pretty much coming in under a minute or so, this angry musical blast goes by fast, but standout tracks Tear It Out and Slowdown will have you hitting the repeat button often with this and listening to it over and over again. Guaranteed.
Check out this most excellent release from Local rabble-rousers Moon Blood. Soooooo looking forward to hearing more and more music from this young up and coming band. They are definitely on to something here musically, and I can't wait to see where they go with this. :)
This cassette only release is available from Moon Blood at every gig they play. It's also available digitally via the Moon Blood Bandcamp page, which you can go to by clicking here.
