We love Meeks Is Murder here on AA because they rule. The band is always spectacular and I always look forward to listening to new music by them.

Outward/Into The Sun is sure to destroy and the band has gifted us with a new track titled “Downward.” Check it out below. It’s sick. Continue reading
Born in the Year of Our Lord 2007 in the town of Idaho Falls melodic metallic hardcore quintet Outlet prepare to bequeath to the world the follow up to their acclaimed 2009 EP “Broken Is The Man, Vital Are The Missing Parts”. Consisting of 6 songs and spanning over 30 minutes the new EP “Memento Mori” contains in it just as emotion as it does math or heaviness, though it has plenty of all three. Slated for a Spring ’15 release in digital and physical formats on Glory Kid Ltd. “Memento Mori” marks a milestone in the development of Outlet as such innovations as the conservative use of clean, melodic, vocals and a light math influence are incorporated by the band, always in a subtle way.
Continue on after the break for a sample of Outlet’s maturation as a band in the form of their new song “Mortal Coil”. Streaming right now over at New Noise Magazine.

Warsawwasraw‘s debut full length, Sensitizer, came seemingly out of nowhere this year. I was not aware of the French duo’s existence until Three One G label head Justin Pearson (of The Locust/Retox) shared their track “Hollowcost” on various social media outlets. As if the whole “chaotic hardcore” genre couldn’t get more…chaotic. The instrumentation is fast and intense beyond measure. The drumming is furious and bludgeoning. The guitars churn out riffs that are extremely complex, noisy and vicious. Sensitizer is a whirlwind of auditory insanity that aims to distance itself from being just another album that simply echoes the work of Botch or Converge. In short, the album is a good kick in the ass. I recently got in touch with the two masterminds behind Warsawwasraw to discuss the album and more.
