"Punch is a hardcore band based in San Francisco, California, recognizable by fast, heavy sound with pulverizing breakdowns, intelligent song structures and absolutely plastering vocals. Their debut EP, Eyeless (2008), self titled LP (2009) and second LP, Push Pull (2010) are joint releases on record labels 625 Thrashcore and Discos Huegla. They have toured the US, Japan, Australia, and Europe."
The first thing you'll notice about Punch is the that they are a female-fronted power violence band. Yeah, that's right I said it. A fucking FEMALE-FRONTED POWER VIOLENCE BAND! Shit doesn't get much greater than this. They were on tour with Ceremony earlier in the year so you know they deliver that earth-shattering sound. The technical use of guitar in Punch is astounding because you would have never thought of a hardcore band to have such an arsenal of original riffs. Give Punch a go if you're a fan of stuff like Ceremony, Cruel Hand, and Bracewar.
