CROSS STITCHED EYES (UK / USA / DE)
Rightly compared to Amebix, Rudimentary Peni, and Killing Joke, Cross Stitched Eyes, formed in 2005, breathe new life into the anarcho-crust genre. Drummer and vocalist Jason Willer played in Lookout Records’ Enemies (with Dave Ed of Neurosis), The UK Subs, and Drain the Sky; guitarist Tim Crow was in Sworn Liars, Zygote, Bad Influence, and Smart Pils; and guitarist Chris Hutto played in Black Mass. Rounding out the rhythmic pedigree is bassist Mr. Stevie of Tourette Syndrome and Anger of Bacteria, plus Subhumans (UK) drummer Trotsky. All this name-dropping and reference-checking only matters insofar as the music kicks ass with a steel-toed boot.
DEATH RAID (USA)
Hailing from Seattle USA and formed by ex members of Disrupt, State of Fear and Consume (amongst others) Death Raid play crushing cut-above raw crust. Not to be missed!
London’s DREGS plays urgent hardcore spearheaded by menacing vocals and a guitar-driven wall-of-noise that calls to mind the gnarliest international hardcore bands from NO THANKS to SEPTIC DEATH to OLHO SECO. Fast without ever hitting thrash speeds, yet still utterly raw and noisy as hell, DREGS plays thumping, indignant music with some of the scariest, most merciless vocals in contemporary hardcore. Ugly music for our ugly times.
