Deathwish Inc.’s Loma Prieta have a sound that is difficult to describe, however it is clear that they come from the rich tradition of creative Bay Area hardcore bands such as Mohinder, Funeral Diner, Bread and Circuits, Yaphet Kotto, and Indian Summer. Eschewing sub-genres in favor of organically writing songs that are personally fulfilling, each Loma Prieta record is substantially different from the last. Nonetheless, Loma Prieta have managed to forge a distinctive form of expression that is entirely their own. Formed in 2005, Loma Prieta have been a mainstay of the Bay Area hardcore community for more than half a decade. In that time they have released a multitude of 12 inch records and 7 inch records mostly on their own label, Discos Huelga. They have also toured the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Mexico numerous times, all while members play in several other hardcore bands (Punch, Beau Navire, Us Haunted Bodies).
Featuring members of Daughters, Dropdead and Soul Control, Providence, RI’s Fucking Invincible just released their new EP, Downtown Is Dead, on Atomic Action. This 8-song EP was recorded at Lupine Sound in Pawtucket, RI and mastered by Jay Maas at Getaway Recording Studios.
