This demo is from Israel circa 1997, but the chaotic ramshackle thrash could easily have been recorded 15 years earlier in Italy. Intense and manic hardcore - 17 songs in as many minutes. No song titles, but I included a scan of the cover for the Hebrew proficient...seriously, this rules.

Hey, this is Santiago who played guitar for this band, as well as made the badly photocopied JTHM "artwork" (I doubt Mr. Vasquez would have approved...). This tape was made for and distributed only on our short US tour of 97', which started in Boston and ended in Minneapolis. Later we also made a 7" with the same crappy recording and yet more JTHM graphics. This 7" can be found here:
(might also solve the missing song-names mystery, although I thought we DID include 'em on the tape too. Oh well)
Nice to see this on here, by the way, Kudos. =)
Feel free to contact me if there are any questions about this or about 90's Israeli hardcore punk:
