Restrain - '96 demo

Some time ago I posted about Drowning from Paris, France on xStuck In The Pastx. One of the records they did was a split 7" with Restrain from Ozone Park, Queens, NY. Recently someone asked about Restrain and I ripped him Restrain's '96 demo. So why not share the wealth? So here's Restrain's '96 demo. As said, they were from Ozone Park, Queens, NY and I (still) have no clue if they did anything else besides this demo and the split 7" with Drowning, which was released on Back Ta Basics btw. Which would be a shame, cuz they were solid. Leave a comment if you have more info please! Apparently, the original requester told me, Restrain are gonna reunite for a couple of shows, so if yer in the neighborhood, go check em out! Enjoy!

Good stuff, as far as I know Restrain was one of the first IDS band (Everybody Gets Hurt, Billy Club Sandwich, Irate, Sworn Enemy etc ...).

I think I read somewhere that some of the members eventually played in Sworn Enemy, or maybe it was in Mindset, a pre-SE band, I'm not too sure.

Also on the live video, the guy with the funy vocals yelling in the mic at the beginning is the singer of Relentless, I can recognize his funny "B-Realesque" signature.
