xAs Good As Deadx - Til Death Do Us Part CDR demo 2008
This is the first CDR demo from xAs Good As Deadx, released earlier this year. The original line up of the band was Scott - vocals, Tommy - guitar, Will - bass, and Graham drums. They recorded this demo which ripped. Aging HC guys with no interest in sounding like anything other than aging HC guys playing HC they liked. Not only was the demo one of the best things I had heard in years, but the layout was INSANE!!! I'm almost certain I included scans of everthing because this was limited to 100 and I am pretty sure it is gone. I can't find the .rar file on my computer though, so I'll probably download this myself just to get the scans back. The lyrics scan is HUGE because they were hard to read otherwise and I know Scott puts alot of care and feeding into his lyrics. Scott had to leave the band over the summer, so Will went to vocals and they got Jeff on bass, who is not old, but likes old hardcore as much as the rest of us.

The packaging deserves a paragraph of it's own:
Snake, of The Sacrosanct Opuscule handled the artwork, screenprinting and the mildly awkward packaging that folds out into an 'X'. It's an impressive piece to look at. Just about everything Snake does is impressive to look at, even his beard. Click on his website again and look at some of the packaging on his other pieces, then buy them because they rule and they're cheap and you should support DIY. Everything he does is awesome and worthy of the term "work of art". The Nukkehammer and Beaurocratic Dysentery cassettes he just released will eat your babies, and as you can well imagine, they're awfully pretty to look at too.
I am a music fan and this will be my outlet for babbling about stuff I like. I have exactly zero intention of sticking to a genre or making anyone happy but myself. I have very eclectic music tastes and I would like that to show rather than trying to be the first to leak some poor saps new album, or scramble for cred by being genre-specific. This will be updated if and when I feel like it. There was a time when I liked to write music reviews, the total bummer was having to slash and burn shitty records I was handed to review. Believe you me, there are ALOT of shitty records out there. They get released every week by the hundreds. I hated having to listen to them and write about them. I would rather write about albums that are awesome IMHO. Here is where I will do just that. Blogs that upload dozens and dozens of albums from 28 different people and no one says 'boo' about any of them are stupid. If you love the music SO MUCH you have to share it with others, say a few words about it, in any language.
Oh, and if you comment, please limit it to the music. I don't update this very regularly, but I do monitor it. Your spam will be deleted. If I don't understand your language and it looks like spam, it will be deleted.
