Assert (UK) demo (1994)




Steve ‘Britt’ Brittain (vocals; ex ‘One Way System’) or Frank ‘Frantic’ Pendlebury (drums; ex ‘Intense Degree’) sent me this tape. Their other band-mates at that time were Ryan Evans (guitar) & ‘Jon(ny) Sinister’ Johnny Siviter (bass; R.I.P.). They were from the Telford/Wolverhampton area. The band’s line-up changed a few times but they went on to well into the noughties… Here’s my review from Tilt! #8: >>Bad-arsed and uptight, ugly and angry, midtempo metal-edged N.Y.C. Hatecore intermitted by some thrashy breaks and a few faster grindy parts. Might be trendy but sounds pretty nasty and darkish. Get it!<< As far as I know the 2 tracks never made it onto any of their records…
