Ringworm
Ringworm
The reigning kings of destructive hardcore metal, have brought forth yet another testament to their sheer brutality: The Venomous Grand Design. Ever since their emergence from the Cleveland metal scene, Ringworm has garnered the immediate attention of hardcore metal fans, leading them to spots on tour with bands such as Blood For Blood, Hatebreed, and Terror. Ringworm displays an awesome ferocity in the power of their instruments, and vocalist the Human Furnace uses his voice as a tool to extract the diabolical nature of anyone who hears it.

Ringworm was spawned in 1991 from the metal scene in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1993, the band released The Promise on Incision Records, finding their place amongst other hardcore metal heavyweights such as Terror and Earth Crisis. However, despite this early success, Ringworm decided to pursue personal ventures, the Human Furnace concentrated his focus on tattooing and his artwork, while other members joined up with hardcore legends Integrity. Nearly 10 years later, 2001 saw Ringworm emerge from their dark place in the shadows with their critically acclaimed Victory Record's debut: Birth Is Pain. Extensive touring followed, although this was interrupted by personal ventures, as the Human Furnace owns a chain of tattoo shops, and guitarist Frankie "3 Gun" Novinec was touring with fellow hardcore deity, Terror. However, 4 years later, Justice Replaced By Revenge was released. Following their extensive touring in support of their latest album, Ringworm made record time recording their latest offering: The Venomous Grand Design.
New Lows
New Lows
Formed in late 2006, New Lows are one of Boston's heaviest hardcore/punk/metal bands. Featuring members of Think I Care, So Be It, The Prowl, Riff Raff, and more, they take their direction from classics of the genres like Ringworm and (early) Bolt Thrower. Delving deep into their depths only to pull to the surface the darkest of creative visions.

After honing their skills in basements and local shows, New Lows released their now classic demo tape in early 2007 (on Rock Vegas/Eating Rats). This demo featured four monstrous songs (now included on the CDEP version of their Lockin' Out release). In early 2008, New Lows recorded a Live Set @ WERS, which was aired as part of the final broadcast of the classic "Radiobeat" radio show (later released as a limited cassette release by the band). In the summer of 2008, New Lows released their "Self Titled" debut 7"EP/CDEP on the Lockin' Out label. Shortly after they hit the road in support of the release, playing memorable shows across the country on route to the 2008 Sound And Fury Festival.

Since then, New Lows have overcome broken bones, internal conflict, and the Fung Wah bus to create one of the heaviest Deathwish releases to date, "Harvest of the Carcass".

Recorded by CC of Mind Eraser at The Paincave, "Harvest of the Carcass" is an absolute monolith of an album. Where many contemporary bands wield a polished approach to being "brutal", New Lows wield a crude, blood soaked stone. Drop tuned riffing and bone shaking double bass pummels like a rain of anvils to the head. All the while, PBoy's guttural vocals weave a tale of social decay and emotional survival. All of these qualities make "Harvest of the Carcass" infectiously cro-magnon in the best way possible. Proving that New Lows are a welcomed alternative to the "metalcore" hybrid that saturates today's aggressive music scene.
