Progressive Crust band from Salt Lake City, Utah All heavy/aggressive music comes from the same place. The biggest distinction that should be made between bands of this type shouldn't be by (sub) genrefication, but simply by how authentically and effectively they convey what they're trying to convey. Hopefully the sounds we make and the way we operate makes that point clearer than words can, but in case they don't, here are the words. This is where we are coming from, forever have, and forever will.
If you were to amplify oil drums, broken cymbals, battered basses, unrecognizable tape loops, dilapidated voices and push it into the red you'd have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a live set by Denver based band Echo Beds. With the expressed intention of volume as therapy and put through the grinder of the self-practiced DIY ethos- this is visceral, political, and genre defying music.
Aggressive, energetic fast-paced hardcore seasoned with deathmetal, sludge and tasty breakdowns. A four-piece powerhouse, from the depths of the Swedish hardcore underground, ‘God Mother’ has been a rising force since its inception in 2012. God Mother's debut, Maktbehov, was easily one of Metal’s most exciting new releases in 2015, making many of the year’s top lists including Loudwire, Blunt Mag, Metal Injection, and was hailed by Pitchfork as "an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct.” Across 14 tracks, God Mother’s Party Smasher Inc. debut, “Vilseledd,” out October 20th, 2017, packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society's ignorance, in both Swedish and English. God Mother has so far toured South Africa and Central America each once, and Europe three times. The band has toured extensively with acts such as Cult Leader, The Number 12 Looks Like You and The Dillinger Escape Plan. In the summer of 2017 God Mother played the prestigious international metal festival, Brutal Assault.
