It's safe to assume most readers who frequent this blog are fairly familiar with the crop of metallic hardcore that emerged from South and Central Florida in the late 90's. While Poison the Well, Red Roses for a Blue Lady, and A Jealousy Issue are all recognizable names for enthusiasts of the genre, One Day Away, a South Florida based band who was a contemporary of the aforementioned bands, surely isn't as well known. The band's sole release, their 1999 demo, offers 4 tracks of dark, crushing, and EXTREMELY metallic hardcore. Insane, rabid vocals over punishing riffs and the occasional melodic break would've seen this band fitting in well on a label like Life Sentence Records. After the band's split in 2000, members went on to play in Until The End and Hate Eternal.
