Mind Awake from Paris contacted me. They just released their first demo on Paris-based PPB Records. Combining fast hardcore with groovy and heavy mosh breaks, it's a sound I can totally dig. There's a slight old school/youth crew feel but then they turn up the heaviness and bring the mosh. The lyrics are pretty varied and deal with lost friendships/relationships but also elitism in the scene. But I have to ask, where are the signalongs?! Their sound screams for singalongs... But I'm fine without them too, the band is definitely on the right track, and I can't wait to hear to hear more from them. They are also eager to play all over Europe, I will definitely make an effort to check em out if they play anywhere near me.
