Tempest. FUCKING TEMPEST. Holy fuck. How the fuck do you even describe a band like this one? It’s been five years since the Vancouver-based grinding post-hardcore war machine known as Tempest has released an album.

Three awesome dudes from the Oakland-based grindcore band Infinite Waste (namely madmen Jamison, Kevin, and Matt) were rad enough to have the brilliant idea to put together a compilation of Bay Area-based bands to give out for free at this year’s first edition of California Deathfest this weekend in Oakland, to show visitors and outsiders attending
