New blood: Dretch

In the mid to late 90s Florida spawned a ton of awesome bands, from Morning Again to Culture to Cease to Omega Man to Scrog etc... And there's still quality bands coming out of Florida. Such as Dretch, from Ocala, FL. They released their first demo in late 2015, and it's a rager. The demo's 3 songs are all under 2 minutes long, not counting an almost 2 minute long movie sample at the end of 'Pledge Of Convenience'. Get in, fuck shit up, and get out, seems to be their motto. I'm not complaining when it's done as well as here. Stylistically the band's sound is similar to that of bands like Rise & Fall and Enabler while also adding small hints of bands like old Integrity and Converge, but with a no frills and stripped to the bone approach. Definitely a band to keep a close eye on.

This is awesome, thanks for the hook-up. The Jim Jones samples make the first track much more sinister!
