Obscene Extreme Adds Four More Bands

The Obscene Extreme America mosh pit just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The festival takes place in Montreal, QC from August 20th - 23rd, with the organizers issuing this statement about new confirmations:

"Fatal Flaw - Don’t get fooled by the band name! The only weakness these Montreal crustcore lunatics have is not being able to control the anger & ferocity that goes through their music. Raging crust punk is what you’ll get at OEF America and the only flaw possible is the lack of people in the mosh pit. Don’t make this happen, get your ass in the pit or you will feel the wrath of Fatal Flaw!

"The Drip - They're pissed off & ready to unleash the most barbaric grindcore the east-coast have ever witnessed. Washington State's The Drip deliver merciless fast-paced grind in a non stop onslaught of aggression & intensity. Get ready for a presentation of gruesome poetics while this modern grindcore band spread chaos through their blasting & unhealthy tunes.

"Noisem - Baltimore's Noisem will blast their vicious tunes in such a destructive velocity, it will feel like someone's shredding your fucking face with a cheesegrater. Formerly known as Necropsy, this young band's playing abrasive death metal at a lightning speed, destroying everything in its path. Be apart of the bestial birth of Noisem at OEF!!!

"Homewrecker - Things are going to get ugly at OEF America as Ohio's Homewrecker are back in Montreal with their grinding hardcore harmonies. They will show no mercy as they pummel your face with heavy as hell guitar riffs, punishing vocals & blistering fast drums!"

The previously announced lineup is as follows: More...

The Drip Posts "Siren" Track Online

Washington grindblasters The Drip have delivered another dosage of their rampaging tactics with the release of "Siren." Check out the track below, courtesy of Lambgoat.com.

Pulled from their impending Relapse debut, "A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics," the two minutes and thirteen seconds of "Siren" are a relentless introduction to The Drip's violent effectiveness, the intensity of the high-speed grindcore intro matched only by the monolithic breakdown groove which follows.

The Drip continues to book regional shows in conjunction with the release of "A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics," leading off with a headlining gig in the band's hometown of Richland, which will also serve as a video shoot for another new track. Subsequent shows will see The Drip ripping it up with labelmates Fuck The Facts and Ulcerate as well as Capitalist Casualties and more, with more widespread touring to follow.

The Drip Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records this week confirms the label signing of blistering grindcore quartet The Drip. Relapse comments:

"Based out of Washington State, The Drip unloads a belittling, ravenous style of high-potency grind, having taken cues from the forefathers of the genre like Napalm Death and Brutal Truth yet contemporizing their approach to put them on par with Nasum, Rotten Sound, Insect Warfare and the like.

"Several independent EPs found the band reaping accolades from US press outlets like Operation Grindcore, who stated, 'If you like your grindcore, metallic and overflowing with seething aggression, then The Drip should please you for quite some time,' and Headbang or GTFO, who called the band's style, 'Furious gut stabbing grind that pummels your anus until it collapses on the floor.'

"The Dirp now brings their ferocious, blasting arts to the Relapse roster with the release of their label debut, A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics. A relentless, skull-crushing, pissed off, high-energy, blast-riddled explosion of violence, the EP rips through six tracks in barely twelve minutes, the first release to be fully recorded at Audiosiege in Portland by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), after which it was mastered by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Integrity)."

The Drip also adds: "We are proud to be a part of Relapse Records and their amazing roster of bands. It's quite an honor being label mates with some of our favorite artists, and even more exciting to be releasing our album, A Presentation Of Gruesome Poetics. It is our strongest material to date, and it's ready to be unleashed to the metal scene. We look forward to 2014 and what it brings." More...
