Relentless - '98 demo

Here's another demo I picked up at Alain OFB's distro back in the day... Relentless was a hardcore band from Massapequa, Long Island, NY in the mid to late 90s. The band had a heavy and groovy metallic hardcore sound with hiphop-esque vocals, and they pulled it off pretty well. A band like Standing8Count comes to mind at times. Before this demo the band did a split 7" with Denied, and they also appeared on a compilation with my old band which I blogged about here. The latter has their song 'Bloodline' on it, which is the opening track of this demo. I'm guessing the band did some more demo's, but I've never come across any unfortunately. Information the band is also pretty scarce, so if anybody has more info, please leave a comment... In any case, enjoy!

They actually have one more demo they released in '97 I believe. I will send it to you when I get a chance. Awesome band for sure, with one of the most unique voices I've ever heard.

Thanks for this! Been a long time since I heard it, amazingly it holds up really well after all these years.
I have a tape in storage somewhere with everything they recorded. I think Cody is right, there are two demos and the split with Denied.
Any chance of getting the Relentless/Denied split up on here?

Any chance for the ARMBAR demo up here? Old Lousville (hope i spelled it right, dammit) hardcore with the Ink & Dagger guitarist. Kinda like Denied! cheers!

Hey @Alex! used to see ARMBAR all the time, the demo was on myspace if i remember correctly! used to have it as well and i sadly lost it long ago. Another band from Louisville that i'd like to see up here is Pflanz they were great also but i never grabbed anything and i regret it alot. You can find a song "Take These Words" on YouTube… underrated as fuck.
