Lion Of Judah-Demo

Lion of Judah

2005 Demo

I have really mixed feelings about this demo. On one hand, musically Lion of Judah are influenced by two of my favorite bands-The Bad Brains and Burn. On the other hand, while those bands are influences for Lion of Judah, I do not think they fully embrace them on this demo and end up sounding like a mundane, straightforward, hardcore band at the end of the day. The songs are interesting and stay under the three-minute mark, but nothing really grabs me. I see potential here though; I think another recording may bring out the best in these guys! Check this out and look for their new ep out soon.

Judge for yourself-Here is an MP3 from their demo and one from their soon to be released record. Also check out the review over at Barebones Hardcore.
