9th Step is a new band from Salem, Oregon, which delivers mean and aggressive style of hardcore. The demo has pretty rough sound quality but you can hear what's going on and some of these tunes are really good. They say to be influenced by bands like Blood For Blood, Madball, Descipline, Agnostic Front or Judge and it ain't that far from the truth. I never have problems with bands that keep it rugged and raw so I totally recommend this shit to anybody who's into this type of stuff. Download it!
