A lyric video for “Grinding Dissent,” a new song by Boston thrashers Ramming Speed, can be seen below.
“Grinding Dissent” is a track from Ramming Speed’s Kurt Ballou-tracked Prosthetic debut, “Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die,” due out June 25 on CD, LP, cassette and digital download. The band commented on the track:
"Grinding Dissent is largely about America’s facade of righteousness and freedom. A government that is ‘for the people’ may or may not have originally been the goal, but in this day and age, it’s obvious that protest and free speech aren’t welcome. Our police departments have military-grade weapons turned on civilians to keep us quiet while politicians smile and shake hands behind closed doors. Musically. the song starts off with punishing D-beat and ends with Ferrari-sized, Piña Colada-chugging twin guitar riffage! Put this shit on 11, crack a beer and scream at the sun.”
Boston thrashers Ramming Speed — who are currently touring alongside Goatwhore and 3 Inches of Blood — will release their Prosthetic Records debut, “Doomed to Destroy, Destined To Die,” in North America on June 25th.

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 its 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!"
The label also comments: "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; full dates and details can be found below." More...

"They also PROMISED us to debut at LEAST two songs from Chinese Bukkakacy, which they have, indeed, been working on for awhile (although apparently it may not be called that anymore — 'The idea seemed pretty funny in 2006, not so much anymore,' the band told us by e-mail)."
