Strongarm - "These Times That Try Men's Souls" Demo

Strongarm was a well known hardcore band from Florida from 1993 - 1998 (and some later reunions). Known as much for being one of the leading bands on Tooth & Nail Records at the height of the "Spirit-Filled Hardcore" era of the 90's as they were for having members of Shai Hulud, Further Seems Forever, and many more bands.

Strongarm picked up where "traditional" hardcore was veering off in the 90's and took it to a heavier side like many of their contemporaries, but rather opted for speed and melody where many others were playing the more popular metallic influenced sound. Their final recording "Advent of a Miracle" is a large jumping off point for bands like Shai Hulud.

This is essentially the beginning, coming just before the 7inches & first lp on Tooth and Nail.
