Initially featured in a prior Aftermath Straight To The Point review, the young forebears of “Pittsburgh Heavy Shit” in Killing Thing have bestowed onto American Aftermath the opportunity to unveil their latest step into aural brutality. Following a demo, an EP and track appearances on a split and compilation (download it all free here!), the chaotic hardcore quartet have returned, armed with a new vocalist and drummer and ready to enter the modern metallic hardcore revival lexicon with a new EP due out soon on Head2Wall Records, of which the video for the first track is featured below. Directed by Tyler Long (Run, Forever and Black Mask) and recorded by Dave Rosenstraus (of Hounds of Hate and Pissed Jeans fame), “Derision” brandishes a brash, greater 90s metallic hardcore centered sound whilst underplaying but not completely abandoning the group’s groovy beatdown, which comes exemplified in the best way in the last seconds of the minute and forty crusher. As for the video, bloody, live and simple. Stream “Derision” below and be sure to catch Killing Thing on their Midwest stomp, details also below. Continue reading
