NY hardcore wizards Meek Is Murder are a power trio with The Red Chord alumni and the current Enabler drummer in their ranks. The band are set to release a double EP in just over a month and have broken radio silence to dish out the first teaser of new material. ‘Downward’ is the penultimate track on the first half of the double release and it is a proper banger. Just under two minutes of snarling hardcore await those who dare brave the jump.
Debuted over at Alternative Press, ‘Downward’ is a quick summary of what to expect from Meek Is Murder for those not already acquainted with their sound. Molasses thick guitar tones and whiplash percussion arrangements are but two of the main ingredients that make up this tasty piece of hardcore heaven. Expect much more of this on Onward/Into The Sun Where It Falls Off The Sky, due for release on May 5th through Rising Pulse Records.
