Loma Prieta



LOMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

Loma Prieta. Four-piece hardcore/screamo band from San Francisco, California/the Bay Area. Formed in 2005. Dark, distinct, chaotic, pulverizing  cathartic, abrasive, dynamic, intense music with hints of melody influenced by pg.99, Ampere, Yaphet Kotto, Converge, La Quiete. Jeromes Dream, and basically the entire Gravity Records roster (Mohinder, Angel Hair, Heroin, etc). Shares members with other awesome bands such as Punch, Beau Navire, and Sailboats, among others. Currently signed to Deathwish, released most stuff on their own label, Discos Heulga. Insane live band. Awesomeness. Enjoy:

  3. In the Loma Prieta/L'Antietam split, correct me if I'm wrong but I think the L'antietam side was material from their Dark Brew or Rock Bottom EP/LP, but didn't come out till 2013 as a stand alone double.
