Jasta 14 - 7"


From: USA
Year: 1995
Genre: Post-Hardcore

Jasta 14 were a Connecticut hardcore band co-founded by Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed that existed from 1991 to 1996. The early recordings of the band, although quite good, were fairly typical of early 90's hardcore and were heavily influenced by contemporaries like NYC's Burn and Absolution. By the time this recording was released they had gone through a number of vocalists and were more influenced by a lot of the post-hardcore and screamo that existed at the time i.e. Rorschach, Rye Coalition, Swing Kids etc. They went through other numerous personnel changes during their brief existence but this recording features founding member and bass player Greg Burns of Red Sparowes and Mick Barr of Krallice on guitar. After further personnel changes and a US tour in support of this 7”, playing with bands such as Botch and Snapcase, the group finally called it quits.
