GLOBE AND BEAST on Revolver

Revolver Magazine presents the premiere of Globe and Beast's "Creatures of Habit", a song off the San Diego band's debut album, Grandfather's Axe.

Anthemic hardcore, shrouded in gloom, Globe and Beast's style marries the crushing and the dismal - something like the frontal assault of Buried Alive smothered in the depression of Kiss It Goodbye. Decibel Magazine found these words to describe it: "Noisy, sinewy, mathy, violent, metallic hardcore with heart and soul, wrapped in tire irons and dipped in battery acid."

Grandfather's Axe was recorded by Alex Estrada at The Earth Capital (Touche Amore, Xibalba) and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering (Crazy Spirit, Perdition). The album sees a vinyl/digital release on March 19 via Melotov Records, home to new upcoming releases by The Banner, Vices, and more.

Globe and Beast hit the road this spring, including appearances at SXSW.
