CONFRONTATION -1989 demo 7" (1991)
Confrontation were a Southern California grind/crust band from the late 80's who broke up in the early 1990's. The band featured Todd, The bass player that went on to play in the cult band Dystopia. This stuff is pretty brutal, and more on the crust side of hardcore & metal. Metalheads will love this shit... Its raw as fuck. This record is the actual bands first demo from 1989, remixed then put to vinyl. The ep came out on Draw Blank, a label run by two members of Infest.
I ended up with this totally by mistake. I'd ordered records from the label in the past, and never gotten them...duh, yeah Infest records of course. I would continually order records and shirts from these guys, and NEVER get anything back. Must have happened at least 3 times, after seeing adds in MRR. I was a fuckin born sucker for Infest. Finally after writing some pretty pissed off letters to Draw Blank, they sent me this ep, telling me that the Infest record I ordered was out of print. I was pretty bummed out, and prolly listened to this once and filed it away due to my Infest disappointment. Took me a few years to dig this back out to give it another chance under my buddy Ben Barnett's recommendation. Its def not infest but is still a great record.
