A repost of a demo I shared back in 2011, DEATH SENTENCE's 13 minute offering is an exercise in precision and brutality. Snappy but brief pogo punk intros give way repeatedly to unimaginably fast hardcore punk...over and over again the formula repeats, and it never gets old. The eponymous track is far and away my favorite, but this entire demo personifies relentlessness. Their NEGATIVE APPROACH cover has teeth that the original couldn't even conjure, and their off the rails version of fast hardcore is rivaled only by LÄRM. Yeah...the shit is that good, and there's a devastating live show on the flip. Dead Week Continues....
