Sins of the Flesh
For the second posting I've got a great metallic hardcore band from Sacramento, CA - Sins of the Flesh. They were around in the mid to late 80s and put out one LP and one 7", both of which are presented here for you. The fast tempo, metallic crunch and leads, along with the overtly political lyrics really make me think of a U.S. version of Concrete Sox. The 7" moves a bit more into crust-core territory, part of the emerging scene in California at this time (Apocalypse, A//Solution, Confrontation, Glycine Max, etc.) This stuff is very underrated and there's not much about them I could find on the web. Here is the one interview I was able to track down. The LP was on Street Records out of Santa Barbara and the 7" came out on Desperate Attempt Records. Check it out!
