Chain Cult – “Demo 2018” LP
A spikey, uptempo take on the post-punk sound that prevails across the world in 2019. Leaning heavily towards the punk side of the moniker, rather than leaning on the post – as in, reverby, effect-ladden guitar sandwiched between fast hard-hitting drums and outraged-shouty vocals (similar to No Problem). Chain Cult are from Athens, a town that in recent years has been unleashing consistently top-quality DIY punk music, and these guys are no exception. This is the UK/vinyl version of the demo tape that was recorded earlier in the year.
