Time Waster - Demo


1. Overcome The Odds
2. My Eyes
3. Filled With Hate
4. Disbelief

Today has been utter garbage and as a result, I've not been able to achieve what I wanted to. On the plus side though I have managed to improve my momentum review-wise (though it may not seem like it). To cheer myself up I'm turning to the demo from another Brighton band (and Headless Guru Recs release), Time Waster, which was released in July 2015. They have links to Charybdis, whom I reviewed last week and they're currently recording an LP, so this is the perfect opportunity to check them out properly.

It’s pretty hard to keep up with the amount of bands that have come out of Brighton over the last twelve months, but I’m pretty sure most have been covered here in some form or another. Time Waster is the latest addition to that ever-growing list and their debut demo features four fast and raging hardcore punk songs. Overcome The Odds is positive in title and there’s a slight youth-crew vibe to the music, with gang-vox and punk riffs. This is as straight-up as t gets. The tempo and urgency of My Eyes makes is super catchy and Time Waster don’t waste time (sorry) with flowery touches or obtuse instrumentation. They keep things to the point and tight. They remind me a lot of American hardcore band Will To Die on Filled With Hate, obviously without the Americanisms! Disbelief ends it all with a no nonsense blast of good old British hardcore punk  On this evidence Time Waster’s LP will be well worth the wait.
