Initial Descent: February 3 – 9, 2019


I’m here to show you new metal and chew bubblegum and I’m all out of bubblegum, lucky for you.

And it’s that kind of attitude that Kicker, comprised of seasoned vets across genres (look them up, pal), emits on their rowdy ass kicking, instant cult classic punk album Pure Drivel. Downfall of Gaia inject just the right amount of melody and a heaping dose of thick atmosphere between their blastbeats on Ethic of Radical Finitude, Yerûšelem spits forth a throbbing mass of industrial post-punk laced with black metal and electronica on The Sublime, and Ad Patres go the meat and potatoes death metal route on A Brief Introduction To Human Experiments but with that said, who doesn’t love some well done meat and potatoes death metal?!

More to follow below so don’t get lost in there and hang around as long as you like. No bubblegum in sight so you’re safe.
