Overwhelmed By Empathy

Here are four more doses of dark and crusty hardcore from the Bay Area. Multi Facet were a sadly short-lived band with Jenean from Ojorojo on vocals. The bass work is noticeably "Econochristian" as are some of the discordant, higher end guitar parts. If you enjoyed Ojorojo, you'll find this disc much to your liking as well. I've been informed that the band also released a split 7", but hell if I can find a copy anywhere. They did record two songs for the "Shit Gets Smashed" comp, which you can download here.

The well is drying up as far as bands like this go. If anyone knows of any other "unknown" bands of this sort, do comment. For fans of Zero Hour, Unhinged, Daymare, Schifosi, Jeniger, Lost World, Antischism, Initial State, etc...

"Econochristian" ? Brilliant. Hey, I don't know if you ever caught my Apeface post but I think it's relevant to your Lost Bay Area crust sludge theme...

Yeah, I did, and I linked it up to the "Shit Gets Smashed" post. In case people don't pay attention too well-- if you all like good hardcore, go to the Hearse and download the Apeface LP. It's by far the best shit they every recorded!

Wow,I got both of you guys in one place. I found the Cosmic Hearse blog recently, because of that Apeface post. So Stoked! I just found a used copy of the OJOROJO CD after not having it, but talking about it for, like, five years. And I've always wondered if Multi Facet ever released anything other than the tracks on 'Shit Gets Smashed'. Everything is coming together, three amazing and pretty unique sounding bands. Now if I could just find some Cathy Ames (Another female fronted Crust wonder)... I've got a split they did with Godstomper, but no turntable these days. Anyways. Thank you and Aesop both for bringing some of my favorite music back into my life.
