Disbelief demo

Disbelief was a hardcore band from from Bowie, Maryland, here's a demo of theirs. I don't know if this demo originally came with an insert, mine just has the cover with the track-listing, and contact information on the tape labels. It doesn't even have a date or year on it, but I guess this one's from 1995/1996, as their first 7" was released in 1996. I picked up this demo at a random record store over here in Rotterdam in the Netherlands actually, of all places. Must have been 2000/2001 cuz I was working at a place near that record store at the time. I think I got another demo that time as well, but can't remember which one right now, oh well...

Anyways, the first time I came across Disbelief was when I got their split 7" with Outcome, on Moo Cow Records/FistHeldHigh Records. I got that split 7" cuz of Outcome, who did an amazing 7" on Surprise Attack Records. Unfortunately for Disbelief, the Outcome side on that split 7" ruled hard as well, so I didn't play the Disbelief side nearly as often as I should have. While they're not Outcome, nor sound anywhere near them, they were definitely a good band. This is a really solid demo with fairly straight-forward hardcore, with some metallic influences and a 'hard' edge. The last song is a cover of Killing Time's 'Backtrack'. Besides this demo and the aforementioned split 7" and some appearances on compilations, I know they also did a self-titled 7" and a split 7" with Emerge, neither of which I own unfortunately. I guess they were into ice hockey, as both this demo and their side of the cover of the split 7" with Outcome feature a picture of fighting ice hockey players. Enjoy!
