Buckle up kids this one gets bumpy. Peeling Flesh released this killer EP with a title good enough to attract any slam fan. Now for 10 minutes and 58 seconds you wouldn’t think this EP would offer the thrill ride that it actually does but with two heavy features from Traumatomy and Pintglass, you know it’s going to get wild. Start to finish my neck didn’t stop with this one, it’s aggressive as hell from the opening bell and they […]

Dominicide, a four piece band from Glasgow, just put out an absolute top tier EP called The Architecture of Oppression September 10th, and I am just loving every minute of this!
