TERMINAL NATION

Posted on 12:06

TERMINAL NATION

visit TERMINAL NATION on facebook Terminal Nation is a 5 piece hardcore/death metal band hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas. Founded in 2014, their debut LP, “Holocene Extinction” was released on 20 Buck Spin in 2020. For a band that adopted the word “terminal” as part of their moniker and put “extinction” front and center in the title of their full-length debut, this Little Rock, AR quintet is paradoxically extremely fucking adept at breathing new resurrecting life into flatlined sub-subgenres. Holocene Extinction marries a tectonic late-’90s metallic hardcore pummeling—think Acme’s towering comp To Reduce the Choir to One Soloist (1996), His Hero Is Gone’s Fifteen Counts of Arson (1997) and Catharsis’ Samsara (1997)—to a nasty attack that calls to mind Napalm Death, Entombed and Obituary, with a few requisite-yet-tastefully-executed circa South of Heaven Slayer-isms tossed in for good measure.

BULL BRIGADE

visit BULL BRIGADE on facebook visit BULL BRIGADE on Bandcamp The sound of Bull Brigade is a very distinctive street punk with punkrock and hardcore influences sung with a rough and melodic voice. The main thing that made the band one of the most important band in the italian scene is, for sure, the poetic and strenght of the lyrics of the songs, focus on topic as working class and the suburb’s life, football supporters and social problems.

BEWITCHER

visit BEWITCHER on facebook visit BEWITCHER on Bandcamp When one finds themselves at the proverbial crossroads – face to face with the Devil himself – who wouldn’t choose the left hand path? Honestly, evil is too enticing, too strong, and Hell has the best music anyway. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, heavy metal mongrels BEWITCHER made their pact with Lucifer years ago, and have been walking the dark path ever since.   Recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, California by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth), “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom” is a powerhouse, heavy-metal-rock-’n‘-roll record forged in the white hot fires of Hell. The front cover was done by Paolo Girardi (Power Trip and many more). Rock ’n‘ roll is the Devil’s music, and through “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom”, BEWITCHER invites you to join them at the crossroads, drink from the chalice of rock ’n‘ roll, then ritualistically sell your soul to the dark lord himself. M. von Bewitcher puts it best, “The Devil is always ready to make the deal…” See BEWITCHER live here: Want to book a show? Get in...

UNDEATH

visit UNDEATH on facebook Having inked a deal with Prosthetic Records, UNDEATHare preparing to unleash their unique take on old school death metal in the form of debut full length album, Lesions Of A Different Kind.Two demos released in 2019 give an indication of what’s to come -but when these ten tracks of heavy hitters reach your speakers, prepare for a whole new level of skull crushing intensity.The riff upon relentless riffs are a solid foundation for the Rochester, NY based trio to balance the hulking mass of their death metal furiosity on top of. Their collective decades of musical consumption, compositions, performances and influences have converged in this one swirling mass of horror-flecked heavy metal. By honing in on festering corners of inspiration -with everything from Phantasmto the Wheel of Time book series gettinga moment in the spotlight, the lyrical and conceptual nature of the album is as eclectic as it is engaging.

LIFE FORCE

LIFE FORCE

visit LIFE FORCE on facebook visit LIFE FORCE on Bandcamp Life Force is a straight edge hardcore band out of Texas/Oklahoma. The group was formed in 2018 with a clear focus: the mission of paying homage to the sound, aesthetic, and spirit of classic youth crew inspiration, albeit with a darker modern twist, while expressing pertinent socio-political themes and opinions through engaging lyrical content and a poignant on-stage message. This push to put message at the forefront is (or should be) a vital component of the experience that is a hardcore band. The message, in this instance, is made up of an assortment of subjects, ranging from continuous positive self-development, veganism, straight edge, radical politics, and more. The musical inspiration for the band was to create something that was clear and coherent in approach and style, building a sound that is unique and fresh while still calling back to obvious influences from the past and present. With these combined elements, Life Force strives to forge a bond between band and audience, whether that means in a live setting or otherwise, that reinforces the core idea that a scene, a city, and even the world can be changed for the better through critical thought, persistence of will, and an ongoing commitment to first embodying this positive change at a personal level.   See LIFE FORCE live here: Want to book a show?
