VOETSEK – “A Match Made In Hell” CD (Six Weeks)
Local hardcore thrash band with brutal female vocals. They like playing fast! Fast!! They give equal time to old speedy hardcore and metal. The tracks are often short. Some call it Bay Area party thrash but the bands lyrics deal with many political, social and LGBT issues. The songs are often short and there are 42 so I’m just going to review my favorite tracks. The band is made up of long time bay area punks, Athena from DREAD, Jeff from S.T.F.U, Scotty from DEADFALL and Ami from DAIRY QUEENS.
