If you like seeing world-class musicians aiming to rewrite the lines of heavy music, unconcerned with limitation or agenda. Demo coming soon. Check out a sneak peak here.
MEEK IS MURDER: A maelstrom of noise through a brutal and spastic blend of grind, metal, and hardcore. "Algorithms" (recorded by Kurt Ballou of Converge), "88 MPH" concept cassette available on the road. Live footage here.
COLONY: Ultra-heavy blend of hardcore/punk/doom metal/sludge.
ZRUDA: Ex-Gaylord + Lazer/Wulf members crafting mechanical, doom-funk, synth metal shred-wraith.
RECKONER: Refreshingly atypical blend of hardcore and metal. Chaotic, ferocious, and featuring members of Fjord and The End of the Universe.
EBONY SORROW: A hybrid of black metal, gurgle blast, and punk rock poised against racism, homophobia and other forms of hatred.
HIROSHIMA VACATION: Local brothers ripping grind apart with lots of new recordings coming very soon... Live footage available here.
BURN EVERYTHING: Chaotic blend of grind, hardcore, mathcore, and metal who have been on everyone's unsigned hotlist for some time. Check out tracks from their 7" Dullest Records debut.
AMONG DEAD MEN: Local dual vocal metalcore/deathcore attack! Info here.
DON'T GO INTO THE WOODS: Local blacked punk metal trio.
GRAUPEL: NEW local jazzy, punky, mathy quartet. Live footage here.
