Admittedly, I know nothing about Serbian hardcore. However, Eva Ras can stand as evidence that they must have something going on other than Novak Djokovic and “Peja” Stojaković. The demo features Belgrade’s Filip Stojiljkovic playing every instrument in a collage of clanging guitar din and weirdo noises. The vibe is similar to older emo violence a la Combatwoundedveteran or Orchid. But there are nods to older art-rockers too, with guitar parts recall the harsher moments of The Velvet Underground. The final track includes a glacier-paced sample of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” as a prelude to the noisecore racket. This demo makes me miss the days of tight pants, white belts, and broken microphones.
