Act of Faith - First Demo (+ Bonus)
Here is the download: Act of Faith's First Demo
And while we are at it, let's just post everything:
Act of Faith - Soul of One Single
Act of Faith - Test of Strength CD (includes the Forward tape)
Act of Faith - Gain CD
I would like to thank Carter from The Difference, et al. for being so thorough and posting all the music on HotAtlDIY.com as well as great histories, pictures, etc. from all these 90's Atlanta hardcore bands.
The first Act of Faith demo is special to me, as this is how I first saw them and became a fan of their music as great skate rock from Atlanta. They were very much influenced by O.C.B. at this point, but on changing their singer from Steve Bolton to Rob Fuller in 1990-1991 or so, they left the skate rock vibe behind and came into their own, more aggressive hardcore sound. At the time, Matt Mauldin of Venosity/Bloodspoon sang for a few practices with them, but fortunately did not join the band and instead started Car Vs. Driver with Steve Wishart, which in turn brought me into this scene.
I won't go on too much about these guys, as their music and histories can be found all over the place, but please enjoy their music and leave any comments, stories or messages that you might have for us to enjoy. Thanks.
Here are the artwork and lyrics from that first demo:
And here is a classic from August 29, 1992 - how many of you were at this show?
