VICIO


Absolutely blistering demo from 2000 delivered by crazed punks from Laredo, Texas. Whether these are influences or manifestations, I hear the garage churn of THE DICKS, the unhinged hardcore chaos of early WRETCHED, the strained cracking vocals of D. Boon (especially during the mid tempo section of "Terrorized") and the untempered raw passion of Latin American hardcore. I have been listening to this incessantly for days.

Hard to believe that this came out so long before the current raw punk explosion, but then again the band's sound is unique and totally their own. An excellent demo! Thanks for uploading.

I know a little about them. I am not from Laredo but was housemates with the drummer and singer a few yrs after they stopped actively playing. Cool guys...sang about corrupt border town issues that they saw daily relating to immigration and class struggle. Lots of Brujeria love amongst band members. I don't think that any of them are playing in any current bands. They're scattered between Austin, San Antonio and Laredo.
