Vicious precision hardcore from Richmond VA played by members of DEVOID OF FAITH, MUNICIPAL WASTE and SUPPRESSION. No blast, no chug, just acidic shredding ire here. An effervescent debut amidst a deluge of bland apathy.



Our take: Debut 6-song EP from this new Richmond, Virginia band featuring Dave Witte from Municipal Waste and Discordance Axis on drums. This isn’t metal, though, but pure hardcore punk with an “80s by way of the 90s” sensibility to it. The playing is tight (which we might expect… these folks are pros!) and the riffing combines the straightforward catchiness of something like Minor Threat with the beefier sound of more metallic hardcore. I’m reminded of the 80s-sounding bands from Portland-via-Memphis scene (particularly Deathreat) or several of the bands that Brian Stern has played in (Look Back and Laugh, Needles, Shit Coffins). You won't find any trend-hopping here, just no-frills hardcore punk for people who have been around the block a few times.
