I have no idea why I’ve never heard of Ramming Speed before, but I’m glad I know them now. This Boston-based crossover thrash/grindcore group are absolutely ballsy, and they’re the sort of band that will have you doing self-destructive things while in the presence of alcohol. Not to say you should go out and do something absurd like getting drunk and driving a trike off of a steep mountainside while Ramming Speed are playing, but the thought is just pretty damn awesome. At any rate, if you like your music heavy, fast, and pissed, Ramming Speed is the band for you. Check out some tracks via the Bandcamp player below.

They’re starting a pretty extensive tour in a few weeks, and they’re taking this thing all across the US, so check them out as they rip apart a club near you. Dates after the jump!
