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 →

Although I’ve never met the dude, I like to call Frank Godla (Meek Is Murder, Metal Injection) a friend and, as a friend, I’ve found some really killer bands through him and Meek. The latest band is Aminals, who should have won you over based on their name alone. I have no no clue what so classify this band as other than incredible. Continue reading →

There was nowhere to go but up after Meek is Murder put out their highly acclaimed debut full length, Algorithms, in 2011. Their high octane grinding hardcore, partially inspired by the late 90’s/early 2000’s breed of chaotic and metallic hardcore, was enough for Decibel Magazine to label them “the best mathcore to come along since that genre’s big hitters – Botch, Coalesce, Converge – dominated the late 90s.” After last year’s Back to The Future inspired EP, Into the Sun Where It Falls Off the Sky, it was high time for Meek is Murder to craft their next full length and show off their skills yet again. The end result was Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters; a thirteen song, twenty minute hurricane of ferocity and intricacy.
Terrorizer have premiered the one-two punch of “More Always More” and “Less is More” from Meek is Murder’s upcoming album, Everything Is Awesome Nothing Matters, which is due out on October 22nd. The new songs are what you would expect from the band if you’ve been listening up until this point. They are heavy and slightly chaotic. What more could you want? If you are wondering about the album’s name, guitarist/vocalist Mike Keller told Terrorizer that the record was a result of “the most terrifying” year of his life. Keller had experienced three deaths in the family, the end of a lengthy relationship, losing his possessions in a fire, homelessness, and a critically injured canine during the past year. Keller comments by saying:
