June 2016 Featured Band
Formed in late 1984,This San Diego band became one of the first political punk bands in the U.S.A. They quickly started creating mayhem around town.They played they're first show opening for D.O.A. and Abrasive Wheels. The band soon found themselves playing shows and sharing the stage with great bands like Conflict,Subhumans,Iconoclast,SNFU,Broken Bones,Battalion of Saints. The six song Demo tape "AfterMath"was recorded DIY for only 25 bucks.The Demo got rave reviews and the band soon had a strong following.A tour of the states was soon to follow. Many shows latter and the band is at it again with a Re-Issue of the first demo which was also bootlegged in Germany.
Vinnie - Vocals
Sean - Bass
Gary - Drums
Julius - Guitar
Location: San Diego, CA, U.S.A.
Influences: The sound of the band was fueled from anger and the need to speak out just as much as the instrumental barrage and the loud and in your face attitude.
Sounds Like: Extreme Noise Terror, G.B.H., Crucifix, Discharge.
Though from California and nominally peace-punk, Diatribe didn't actually fit in well with the categorization. They came later than Crucifix, Against, and The Iconoclast and their sound was much more hardcore than Another Destructive System or Treason - though not as metal as Final Conflict or the late '80s crust bands that came after them.
