Despise You

Despise You are a four-piece powerviolence/hardcore band from Inglewood, California that were initially around from 1994 to 1996. During this time, they never played any shows, however did record a fair amount of material, spread out over an EP, a few splits, and numerous compilations. All of this was compiled in 1999 on West Side Horizons, which features some of the most spastic, angriest hardcore ever documented, with dual vocals and dark lyrics. In 2007, the band reformed to play shows for the first time. They've been active ever since, and have recorded and released new material, particularly two great splits with two great bands. Highly recommended, classic powerviolence. Enjoy.

  1. Dude, the split they did with AnB floors me. Truly ferocious shit. I'm actually not well-versed in powerviolence, so I kind of just go back to this band whenever labeling others lol.

  2. Think Westside Horizons has expired?
