RECORD STORE SHOPPING SPREE CONTEST

We’re teaming up with Prosthetic Records to give 5 rockers $100 worth of records in a supermarket sweet style shopping spree at various stops on our upcoming tour with Valient Thorr and Gypsyhawk! Why? Because we’re idiots and we want you to have the best time ever. Check the video below for info on runners up prizes, how to enter and other nonsense. Head over to our Facebook Page for a list of the participating record stores.

 

Decibel premiers new song “Grinding Dissent”

“The last time we had our balls in the same pool as Boston-based thrashers Ramming Speed was a long time ago. They were guest blogging about dive bars and we were tickled florescent green. Since then, Ramming Speed have visited more dive bars, helped jean-jacketed heshers snap a neck or two, signed to Prosthetic Records, and, surprisingly enough, crafted the follow-up to 2008′s Brainwreck full-length.

Titled Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die and tracked by Converge studio wizard Kurt Ballou, Ramming Speed’s second will catapult them from cult, from-the-corner thrash act to recognized purveyors of NWOBHM/grind hybrid. If you haven’t heard the Beantown beatnuts, picture DRI covering Napalm Death (early) or Repulsion doing Iron Maiden (early) interpretive runs. Or, just be floored by it and screw our feeble attempts to connect speculative dots.”

Prosthetic Records signs Ramming Speed

PROSTHETIC RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of up-and-coming grind/thrash metallers RAMMING SPEED. The group’s full-length PROSTHETIC debut, “Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die,” was recorded at GodCity Studios with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Black Breath) and mastered at AudioSiege with Brad Boatwright(Sleep, High on Fire, SUNN O))),Tragedy). The album is tentatively set for a late spring/early summer release. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Drummer Jonah Livingston commented on the signing; “We are incredibly excited to finally announce that we’ve signed on with Prosthetic Records, a label whose roster proves it’s dedication to all facets of heavy music. While our band has been extremely lucky to work with labels like Tankcrimes and Brutal Panda, this is an incredible opportunity and we’re ready for the step forward! See you on the road!”

Hailing from Boston, this heavy-hitting quintet — whose sound combines the charging rhythms of d-beat punk and the aggression of thrash with NWOBHM-worthy guitar harmonies and grind’s blinding speed — is no stranger to the metal scene, having previously released a variety of records, tapes and EPs through several labels. Their aggressive tour schedules across the U.S. and Europe with such notable acts as Trap Them, Holy Grail, Torche, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, Phobia, Black Tusk and Saviours led Noisecreep to call the group “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal.” Fittingly, the band will spend April and May touring with Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood and Revocation in the northeast and midwest.

“Venomous death/grind-laden, hair-swirling hardcore fury somewhere in the sonic Bermuda Triangle between Black Flag, Napalm Death and DRI.” — Terrorizer

“A fuck-off great raft of pile-driver thrash, chock to the gills with bleed-speed riffs, sledgehammer heaviness and lyrical dystopia.” — Metal Hammer

“Listeners will be hard-pressed to find another band more enthusiastic about every corner of the thrash, grindcore and punk scenes…the perfect blend of thrash, punk and light-hearted enthusiasm.” — Lambgoat
