Effortlessly fusing crushing metal riffs, the thunderous double-bass drumming of grindcore and the intensity and beatdowns of the most vicious hardcore, London quintet 50 Caliber are a snarling, rabid beast whose bite goes straight for the jugular. Formed in 2002 by Simmonds and original guitarist Terry Haynes, the band wasted no time in unleashing their critically acclaimed debut 5-track EP ‘Internal Bleeding’, through Blackfish Records (Stampin Ground’s Ian Glasper’s label), which quickly sold out. The rising UK metalcore five-piece followed this success with 2003’s ‘Splitting//Ammunition’, a split release with Belgium’s Die My Demon containing five more slabs of savagery that cemented their position as one of the country’s most exciting and uncompromising metalcore maulers.
50 Caliber have laid down three decimating demos and are writing their highly-anticipated debut full-length. Metal and hardcore fans will be blown away as the reinvigorated five-piece take aim at an unsuspecting world. New tracks ‘Slaughtering Of The Sun’, ‘Way Down The Bottle’ and ‘Shadows’ display a pure power that’s sure to make the album one of the finest metal debuts of recent years.
