Blood Loss - Blood Loss 7"
Relentless hardcore from Denver.
From Sorry State Records:
Debut 7” from this band out of Denver. I hear elements of SSD’s powerful and crunchy, Discharge-influenced sound, a little NYHC, and some Blazing Eye-esque pogo hardcore on one track (“Double Life”), all wrapped up in a bleak and gritty aesthetic. Blood Loss is hardly reinventing the wheel, but they have some memorable parts, particularly on the closing “Spineless / Relentless,” on which they work in some cool Negative Approach-style stops and starts and a burst of lead guitar. A ripping EP for those of you who love fast and tough, no-nonsense hardcore.
Is BLOOD LOSS the bomb? Hell fucking yes! This Denver band lays down some sick as fuck hardcore that is urgent and intense!!! If they were kicking out the jams in 80’s SoCal, I know for a fact John Macias of Circle One // Punx would book them for a show. I am not saying they are on some retro shit, but I can hear an 80’s influence – BLOOD LOSS’ songs are fresh and not contrived at all. I would love to see them live because I know they must bring the pain! Every fucking moment of their soon to be released self-titled 7 inch is dripping with wild passion that can not and should not be controlled!
