Conspire - Demo

Conspire is a new band from New Jersey that play a fast, angry style of hardcore that could probably be "power violence" if the songs weren't so long.  But we we have here is something similar to the recent crop of bands like Full of Hell and others who are playing this dirty style of fast hardcore mixed with super slow breakdowns. 

The production is a bit heavy on the low end and sacrifices some of the clarity in that regard.  You get some pretty angry, strong vocals over high gain guitar riffs, backed by some pretty full sounding drums.

Overall though, this is not a bad package. All the right parts are in the right places to give you an end result that sounds presentable and likeable. There's not much experimentation or musical chances being taken here, but for what it is it's done pretty well. 

Listen to it here.
