I got this sent in by Sean from Boise ID, with this email:
Sean:You probably get this shit all the time, and I really don't give a shit if you don't end up posting it or whatever, but I thought it'd be good to let you know. I'm in a hardcore punk band from Boise, ID called Downsided. We started about six months ago, we've played a number of shows, and now we have a demo up for download. If you wanna get around to checking it out, that'd be rad.
Well Sean, your not giving a fuck seems to have worked my friend. Because here's me giving a fuck and posting it. Well, maybe it was a combo of your not giving a fuck, me actually being on top of my shit for the first time in fucking months, and this demo not being a complete fucking turd. In fact, I'd even give this the "pretty fucking good for a demo" seal of approval. Go out and get this shit mixed and mastered and you've got a great start to a full length.
Long and short, this is definitely some hardcore shit for sure. Definitely thrashy, dipping in to some Power Violence moments but still solidly punk rock. Excellent pit music, I'd see em for sure.
For fucks sake man, lay down a full length.
