In case you’re still missing Repulsion and other bands from that period, I have a good cure for your disease. Sonic Poison is from Finland, this band is pretty young, but these boys know what “old school” means. They managed to catch the old spirit and used it in their music and even in the cover art. Folks just look at this mincer art. It looks great, all these eyes, smashed brain, blood and other elements, all of them reminiscent of old bloody cover works from moldy death/thrash/grind bands. These 7 songs are their very first recording (unless of course if I missed something), first of all I must admit that this stuff sounds pretty good for debut work. The whole sound is a little bit muffled, but I’ve heard much worse records, haha! I definitely like that all things (riffs, song structures, screams, drums) sound old school… It causes some kind of nostalgia. These guys did really impressive work. For example these evil buzzing riffs and screaming solos sound so well. Raw yelling and growling sound pretty aggressive too. The same can be said about the drums and bass guitar (they fit perfectly into this old mess). Some of these songs remind me old death metal, some grind and thrash…. and that is so great. So if you’re in love with old music then try this band, because Harsh Demonstration is old smelly noises in new packing. Rating: 8/10 Sonic Poison bc Sonic Poison fb
