Heartless are a lean, mean, hardcore killin' machine from Pittsburgh and features members of the awesome crustcore band Maskari. This post features their winter 09-10 demo which is a comp of some 7" and older demo tracks. Kata Sarka did a show with them on a grim, wintery eve back in January, and being not only a killer band, they were some righteous, down-to-earth cats. They play a brand of HxC that could easily be passed off on first listen as power violence, but upon repeated listens one will uncover an array of other influences like metallic hardcore ala Integrity, straight up crust punk (see track #7, "Never Enough", my personal favorite on this), and burly, bottom-heavy dark hardcore like Cursed, Pulling Teeth, and The Power and Glory. Definitely for fans of Deathwish Inc. style stuff. Get in touch with these gents here Heartless pick up their schwag, and catch them when they roll through your town.
