Hyena - Demo

Label: Scavenger Of Death
Year: 2017

Show of hands; who here gets super stoked on the prospect of a new "ex-Bukkake Boys" band?
I'm raising my hand. They were a personal favorite of mine, as they knew how to maraud through a fucked up, noisy version of first wave hardcore with aplomb and zeal. Nasty style.
So now we get three quarters of the parent-unfriendly-named Bukakke Boys bolstered by the addition of Jesse Smith, easily one of the nicest and most talented guys to grace the Atlanta music world, and who is possibly most well known for his power pop songwriting in Gentlemen Jesse And His Men, but lest we forget was also a member noise rockers Some Soviet Station, emo violence band The Kossabone Red, post hardcore powerhouse Paper Lions, punk stompers GG King, Cops, Gaye Blades, and Carbonas, not to mention kinda-country/kinda-70's Rolling Stones band The Weight (that sentence would benefit from either better writing, or editing, or punctuation or something). Jesse has put in the time.
But expecting a tempered version of the Bukakke Boys was an incorrect assumption on my part, as it turns out. Quite the contrary actually. Hyena puts the pedal down from the start and never let up. They rifle through an album collection full of Poison Idea, Negative Approach, Infest, and Black Flag, and come out the other side with seven screeds splattered on the wall in phlegm and sweat.

Anyone got a link on how to obtain this in digital format? For some reason, Scavenger of Death is not selling it on their Bandcamp page.
