The observant among you may find something familiar about LA’s up and coming hardcore firebrands Grand Lord High Master and their new song “Flexxx”; it actually made its debut over the holiday season as a part of our annual Heavy Comp Is Heavy compilation. In case you missed it, we’ve got its “official” premiere today before the album’s release this spring. Truthfully, “Flexxx” is a song so nice, we just had to debut it twice.
To call Grand Lord High Master a hardcore outfit is honestly a bit of a cop out on our part; there’s smatterings of thrash and sludge mixed into this two-and-a-half-minute banger that fans across the spectrum can enjoy. Think Converge by way of High On Fire or Every Time I Die with a mad case of mange. Grooving trem-picked thrash riffs, Cali-punk scramz, and some chunky and pronounced basslines carry this song to its conclusion and bodes well for the rest of the band’s self titled debut to come.
