Cease Fire - The Blind Lead The Blind, It's The Democratic Way 7"
Another somewhat random 7" from my collection. Cease Fire was a short-lived band from Lockport, NY that did, aside from demo's, only this 'The Blind Lead The Blind, It's The Democratic Way' 7". The 7", taking its title from a quote by American author Henry Miller, was released on Fetus Records in 1995. Cease Fire played a heavy mix of hardcore and (thrash) metal with gruff and throaty vocals belting out angry socio-political lyrics. Really solid stuff overall, even if it's nothing new or original. I have no idea if the band members did any bands before or after Cease Fire.
BTW, I numbered the tracks according to how they appear on the 7", not the incorrect order listed on the back/insert.
...is a '90s hardcore blog, tho there might be some exceptions. Just some records and demo's from that era that I feel need to be heard. Despite the over-abundance of '90s hardcore mp3 blogs, and punk & hardcore mp3 blogs in general, I will try to put music on here that is worthwhile and isn't featured on other blogs.
If you're in a new band that is in some way inspired by 90s hardcore (of any kind), and want me to write something about your band as a 'new blood' feature, contact me here. No guarantees tho, my time is limited and I might not like your band anyways.
I also post photos of my record collection, among other things, on Instagram as @xhcnoirx. Check it out and follow me if you feel like it.
If you see a missing download you are interested in, leave a comment and I'll try to re-up it asap.
If bands or labels want their stuff removed, let me know.
Vegan sXe hardcore fanatic. My fave music is '90s metallic hardcore, however I listen to all kinds of hardcore, from '80s DC hardcore to '90s emo to current beatdown and pretty much anything inbetween. And yes, I love 108.
