The sound of one hand shooting up.

Four-Song Demo

Bowel is Houston’s best-kept secret. It’s almost criminal that these H-town sludge masters aren’t better known but I have a sneaking suspicion that the band members like things the way they are. Bowel has been gigging around the South and blowing minds for a few years now and it’s high time the rest of you got with it.

When considering the sound of Bowel, the most obvious comparisons are -16-, EyeHateGod and BuzzOv-en but there is way more going on than just that well-worn sound. Bowel has a sound that’s sort of like a crusty/death version of the AmRep sound. You know… Today is the Day, Helmet and the like? Drugs and the heavy percussion of bands like Unsane and Bloodlet also figure into the mix. This demo is as disgusting as the pollution in Houston. You guys are going to love it.
