Limb - Demo (2012)





Limb are a London-based quartet who deploy crushing riffs, rhythms and vocals, all housed in a vat of slow-churned tar that fans of Goatsnake and Weedeater will lap up. It's not all crushing atmospheres though: the band shift up through the gears with ease to deliver driving rhythms and galloping riffs in 'Black Rat' and 'Dead Voice', both of which take you back to glorious classic rock hooks of the '70s. The band are also not afraid to ease up on the attack either: there's an undercurrent of barely restrained melody, most prominent in the stripped-down passages of the opening track 'Daemoness', whose vibe is that of AmRep records or even Neurosis.

This demo was originally recorded live by the band in January 2012 at Audio Underground studios, and has been remixed for this special release. This is no Pro Tools-assisted sterile recording: this is what a demo should sound like. The recording sound is utterly filthy, and captures the true sound of a band playing live, giving it their all and fighting to be heard.

Limited to 100 copies on CD, this comes with a folded card inlay and parchment insert, housed in a plastic wallet, with artwork by Chris Alliston and layout by Limb. It is also available through Bandcamp (pay what you want download), Spotify, Amazon and iTunes.
