Envision "2009 demo"

Envision - 2009 demoThe debut demo from Bellingham, WA's Envision unloads three tracks of that dingy, more sinister brand of 90's styled metallic hardcore in about 13 minutes. Expect a suitably raw recording with lots of warm space and dry textures to deliver sludgy, grating rhythms that combine a driving midpaced chug with some looser, noisier dissonance and feedback, fronted by absolutely sick vocals that have a major tinge of that European vitriol reminiscent of bands like Arkangel and the like. The songwriting definitely carries with it a sense of plodding darkness that gives this band a much different sound than a lot of what comes to mind when associations are made with the 90's scene, but that's simply due to the fact that their influences and approach are rooted in a less typical niche of that era, which suits me just fine. This is a killer demo through and through, and I'd already love to hear a full-length from this band…

Physical copies (CD and cassette) should be available shortly, but the entire demo's currently available for free download, so definitely check this shit out:
