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

Phobia ruled – video, photos, text

We just got back home from our short run of shows with the legendary Phobia and Strong Intention and it was a great weekend of hard chilling. Here’s a collection of media (photos, text and video) related to the run. Enjoy!

BrooklynVegan.com
“Boston’s Ramming Speed followed, and these boys know how to play a live show. Though primarily a thrash band, Ramming Speed knows that the genre’s roots are in punk rock and their live show reflects that. Super-high energy set that, even if I didn’t already like them, would be endlessly entertaining to watch.”

CTIndie.com
“Since 2005, Boston’s Ramming Speed, have been bringing their crossover influenced, crust-tinged thrash to the masses, releasing one full length (2009’s “Brainwreck”), a couple of EPs and a split with fellow brothers in arms, ANS, on the Tankcrimes label. A notorious horde of road dogs, the band has played almost anywhere and everywhere, not only in the United States, but in Europe also, where their set at the vaunted Obscene/Extreme Festival drew them raves from the European press. Since the band, with a line-up that features new members Blake Chuffskin on guitar and Ben Bagonen on bass, along with mainstays Peter Gallagher on vocals, Kallen Bliss on guitar and Jonah Livingston on drums, will be playing direct support to Phobia this Thursday at the El N Gee in New London, we decided to send Livingston a bunch of questions on a varying bunch of topics and below are his answers. Enjoy. And don’t forget to check out the show.” Click for more…
