WRONG (CAPSULE, Etc) Release Debut EP

Miami riff-heavy quartet Wrong (Caspule, etc) are currently streaming their first official recording, the Stop Giving EP, over on their Bandcamp page. As opposed to the erratic nature of their sister band, Capsule, Wrong focuses more on crafting straight-forward, heavy groove-based riffs. One could akin the sound of Stop Giving to the Amphetamine Reptile acts like Helmet and just old-school alternative metal/post-hardcore in general like Quicksand, etc. The EP is heavy and catchy and that is all that matters. Feel free to stream the EP after the break.

New Jersey chaotic/progressive metallers Toothgrinder have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming EP, Schizophrenic Jubilee, which is due out on November 4th. The new track is entitled “The Hour Angle” and it churns out blistering, complex riffs and grooves. It’s almost like a cross between the most erratic moments of Animosity and The Dillinger Escape Plan and the more progressive aspects of Between the Buried and Me.

“Dear friends,

We hereby announce the end of a band called Adebisi Shank. From the three of us to all of you, thank you for coming with us on this crazy journey. To Cathy and the Sargent House crew past and present, thank you for believing in us.

Life and music moves on – Lar is making music in All Tvvins, Vin is producing/mixing, working on video games and other cool stuff as VMC Sound, and is also one half of Speed of Snakes. Mick will continue to train for his UFC career.

This Thursday and Friday in Whelans, we will play on an Irish stage for the very last time. Join us if you can. After that, we intend to honour our one existing overseas tour commitment.

To any kids starting bands we offer one piece of advice – play music you love, with people you love, for the people you love.

We saw a million faces

Vin, Lar + Mick (-_-) xxx”
