SBR8: BALSA / SEI HEXE (7" SPLIT)

RELEASE DATE: SEP 2013


A split from two rising Northwest bands. The angular post-hardcore noise of Seattle's BALSA combines aggressive guitar-driven bursts and themes of perseverance in an AmRep-inspired bar fight of dueling riffs. Recorded by NW legend Tad Doyle (TAD, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth). RIYL 400 BLOWS, METZ, THE JESUS LIZARD, UNSANE.

Portland's SEI HEXE bring harsh brutality and pummeling defiance. The intense all-female band channels forces of nature and darkness with mind-shredding vocals and dense compositions tapping Doom, Goth, Crust and Punk, conjuring a blackened Babes in Toyland. RIYL GALLHAMMER, TRAGEDY, KYLESA, TOMBS.

Oxblood red & bronze splatter vinyl with download card. Artwork by Sean Schock (YOB, BOTSC).

REVIEWS


BALSA - "Chaotic dual guitar arrangements over steady bass melodies, post-hardcore style vocals and off the wall drum patterns."
SEI HEXE - "Tight song structure... earthy with tribal rhythms and chanted, almost gothic vocals at times...and from the wreckage create something new and refreshing."
- Profane Existence
