Dead Cross

Because I can’t be bothered to re-type, here’s Wiki:

Dead Cross are an American hardcore punk supergroup formed in Southern California. The band consists of guitarist Mike Crain (Retox), bassist Justin Pearson (the Locust, Head Wound City and Retox), drummer Dave Lombardo (Slayer and Fantômas) and vocalist Mike Patton (currently of Faith No More and Fantômas).

And before you think ‘oh great, just what we needed, another supergroup,’ all I can say is that this is an important, vital release. Holy hell, what a record. It’ll pummel you within an inch of your life and not even look back as it rolls on past your carcass. There’s a dark edge to it all, and some supreme tastes of the weird, and it’s heavy as hell. Basically, look at the players and their day jobs and you’ll have some idea. I hear all of those bands, and others too, like the Dillinger Escape Plan-esque Grave Slave…

This sounds like hardcore punk and extreme metal met in a bar, got into a bar-clearing brawl, and then made a record before the sun came up and their knuckles could heal over. There’s a precision to the playing that is hypnotizing, driven as it is by rage and energy and barely-controlled chaos.

From Seizure And Desist through to Church Of The Motherfuckers, this is honestly one of the better, wildest heavy (new) records I’ve heard in a while.
