contagium - "tour tape 2011" & "archaic LP" FREE DOWNLOAD

contagium are one of my favourite local bands. they've been pretty prolific over the few years they've been a band, doing long cross continental tours & releasing all of their music online for free. I've had people in other cities ask me if I know the dudes in contagium, or if I get to see them all the time? this makes me think they have a pretty big following outside of halifax.
either way, they just released a tour demo on cassette for their 2011 cross canada tour, which just came to an end on sunday, & have offered up the tracks for free online.
some people call them "masters of stenchcore" but I don't know what that really means. I'd describe them as scary, unrelenting crust with echoing screams that sound like they were being beaten out of someone in a dark underground cave.
I really like it. the quality of the recording & brevity of the tape really works.

they have an LP called archaic which is also available for free online. you can order the physical LP from total end records.
