Process Black - Demo 2015

Label: self released
Year: 2015

This was posted in other places, but by the power of Yahweh, the new Trim Swinger project MUST be included in these hallowed halls of the blog-o-sphere! In the canon of "great hardcore vocalists" his lyrics and delivery have got to put him in the rarified air right there with Keith Morris, Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Sam McPheeters, H.R., Ian MacKaye, Dwid, Glen Danzig, and the like. The big time!
So, what you got here is a new band made up of Tim Singer (No Escape, Deadguy, and Kiss It Goodbye) singing, Aaron Edge (Grip, Harkonen, Himsa, Iamthethorn, Lumbar [with Tad Doyle!], etc.) playing guitar and bass, and Brock Lowry (from Cascabel, Monarchs, Ticktockman, and probably a lot of good bands I've never heard of) on drums. And guess what? They sound like exactly what you were hoping they would sound like! Tim Singer has hardly mellowed with age. His caustic attack is still as bracing as ever, and his list of targets seems to know no bounds. Musically, it's a blend of the noise-core these dudes helped pioneer with an added heaviness and restraint. The changes punch you in the back of your head, but they aren't spastic, more of a building creep that lashes out as it lumbers forward.
So good. Heavy, and satisfying in a way that I haven't heard lately. Essential.

hey, chris. the band mentioned on facebook that they did that on purpose, and are not intending on anyone buying it. unless this actually got purchased by someone, a download is unlikely.
