Pure Hiss is a new socially conscious female/queer hardcore band from Detroit. The four-piece carries a spastic sound with visceral breakdowns, intelligent song structures, and earth-shattering vocals, while pushing boundaries and voicing topics that need to be heard.
Mixing the rawness of punk and the finesse of power-violence, Pure Hiss’ influences are as diverse as the members’ musical backgrounds, spending time in bands as varied as Sender Receiver, Dead Church, Build and Destroy, and Undesirable People among others.
“S/T,” which was self-recorded by the band, lyrically explores the inner battles of the body and mind. Musically, the songs are bold and unique, similar in fashion to a blend of Ceremony, Extortion, Dropdead, and Fucked Up. All of the songs buzz with a personal, political, and uniquely unmerciful edge. No sheen, just sheer rage.
After selling out their EP on a limited run of tapes courtesy of Time Will Tell Records, Skeletal Lightning is pleased to reissue their S/T EP on limited edition vinyl for the first time.
European customers can purchase the album here.
Recorded by Chris Trestain in February and June of 2017 at The Sanctuary. Artwork by Tyler Czarnecki.
