Listen to Arms

The Pitch: Name your price for pure, unrelenting, aggressive mathcore from Florida.

What I Like: Once again, Mathcore Index let's me know what's up on something I almost missed last year.  Ranked among their favorites of 2016, BLACKOUT is everything I love about this genre.  It's loud, it sounds angry as f#$k, and the musicianship is off the chain.  Spastic vocals compliment only the most insane drumming and riffing you are like to hear in the realms of Converge and Dillinger Escape Plan.  Start to finish, it makes me want to put my fists through concrete and leave plenty of blood stains in the process.  Half the time they don't even let you catch a breath before the next track has kicked straight into 4th gear.  Kurt Ballou is going to jump on these guys for sure.  Even he couldn't resist the charms of this fantastic project.

What I Don't Like: Familiar territory.  Otherwise a masterpeice.

The Verdict: I've got nothing.  Just listen to it.  Name Your Price.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

Flight's Fav's: BLACKOUT, Psalms Muted, YOTFM
