Published May 16, 2016You may not have realized it, but Long Island hardcore crew This Is Hell's Sundowning full-length turned 10 today (May 16). You can celebrate this by giving their debut album a listen, but you can also ramp up the festivities by spinning Bastards Still Remain, the band's new surprise LP.
The group announced the project today over Facebook, explaining that this latest collection was recorded "in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Sundowning."
The 12-song release was recorded last week with producer Brett Romnes at Hopatcong, NJ's Barber Shop Studios. Vocalist Travis Reilly, guitarist Rick Jimenez, and drummer Dan Bourke had all performed on Sundowning, while the bassist for Bastards Still Remain is Johnny Moore.
The opening title track is a furiously fast hardcore cut about scene leeches, while other blitzed-out attacks include the Disney-referencing "Space Mountain," "You Think I Don't Know" and "Absolute Power Corrupts."
While the band issued their The Enforcer EP in 2013, Bastards Still Remain is This Is Hell's first full-length release since 2011's Black Mass. You can stream it in full below, while you can purchase the digital release for $5 over on Bandcamp.
