Published May 29, 2009Just when you thought the world couldn't get any more sordid or disgusting, a real piece of craziness comes along to knock your socks off. We're talking about how long-time underground metal label Candlelight Records is proud to announce that they have forged an alliance with Boston-based thrash/grind/crust meat bags Ramming Speed.
It may not seem like that big of a deal to some but those who've heard Ramming Speed's latest effort, Brainwreck, understand how this blatant abuse of power is going to render many currently cool "new wave of thrash metal" bands instantly obsolete and entirely uncool.
What's even greater is that despite the new home, Ramming Speed will honour their commitment to Punks Before Profits Records and issue the seven-inch single they've been working on lately through them.
That ordeal is entitled Always Disgusted, Never Surprised, and was recorded at New Alliance (Converge, Coliseum) with Ethan Dussault as engineer, with Nick Zampiello taking care of mastering. Punks Before Profits plans to issue the 600-strong pressing - with 100 offered as a "tour-only" edition - by summer. The band have posted two of the tracks on their MySpace page, if you want to check 'em out.
