"Demo Sweat #1"

So much for the gifted networkers. No offense to Rich or Alex, but the only band I listened to today that I would sign this minute were I a record label is the Anti-Scene, an almost casually mind-blowing quartet that mixes brutal double-kick blast beats, backing vocal wails and accents employed like 80's break music, hefty lyrical credentials and varied, ill flows, and a live group sound that shifts on a dime under the MC like a DJ swapping records. You can hear elements of TV on the Radio, poppier rap-metal like Phoenix's better-than-you-think Chronic Future, consciousness rap like Dead Prez, and live hip-hoppers the Roots, only the Anti-Scene are better I think than any of those bands, because they can do all that they do and more still. Their songs are never predictable, Willie Barnes II is a thoughtful and authoritative rapper and a great singer, and they've got a message that their core audience really needs to hear. Reggae toasting and heavy metal basso profundo one right after the other? Why the hell not? I can't wait to see this band on stage. - Big Western Flavor


The Anti-Scen Ep



Lying dormant deep in the heart of Texas is a force that can no longer be contained. It's slumber has been disturbed by the swine that peddle their filth through the airwaves and call it music. Engulfed with rage it (the force) sent it's four horsemen equipped with their weapons of choice:Willie Barnes II - Vocals, Gustavo Gamboa - Guitar, Caleb Barber - Bass, & Chris Barnes - Drums. Their mission: to crumble the walls of the norm and liberate the ears of the people. Once their rhythm and melody have fallen on the conscience of the masses, the People will have an important decision to make. Whether to join them on their quest or lay amongst the thousands beneath their feet. These horsemen and their army shall be known as, The Anti-Scene.
