Full Assault - Detroit Hardcore 1999 demo

One of the best bands to come out of the Detroit area in the '90s was Earthmover. Such an awesome band, and great guys as well... After Earthmover called it a day, the members went on to several bands, such as Bloodpact (guitarist & +/- Records boss Andy Dempz) and Walls Of Jericho (guitarist & Cloud City Studios owner Mike Hasty). Singer Lenny Adams started a new band in 1998 called Full Assault with members of other Detroit hardcore bands such as Dogz Of War. They changed their name pretty soon thereafter to Cast In Fire, and did several releases under that name. Here however is a demo they did when they were still called Full Assault. It's heavy as hell, raw as fuck, and it's got Lenny's characteristic intense vocals. If you dig Earthmover, you will dig Full Assault/Cast In Fire. All 3 songs on here would eventually be re-recorded for Cast In Fire's 'Apology' MCD. Enjoy!

Thanks a lot man, I love Earthmover but didn't know anything about their previous bands actually. They did a reunion show a couple month ago but I haven't check if there's any videos floating around.

I'm downloading this right away, eager to hear it !

I read a little bit too fast in fact, I thought Full Assault was one of their previous bands, my bad.
