OLD WOUNDS + Mass Appeal


Hip hop authority Mass Appeal branches out from its usual path today to premiere the newest track by Old Wounds. Stream "Ritual," off the New Jersey band's upcoming EP, Death Projection, exclusively via Mass Appeal.

Mass Appeal reports: "Youthful frantic hardcore sounds with churning metallic guitars... These guys are bringing '90s metallic hardcore back, taking influence from groups such as Turmoil and Indecision, and snowballing into a bigger piece of a new generation of hardcore."

Death Projection, out September 16th on Good Fight Music, was produced by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Mutilation Rites) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, Modern Life Is War).

The EP can be pre-ordered now from Good Fight.

Old Wounds hits the road in September with Exalt for a tour of the US and Canada.

–Alternative Press

"Nasty, vitriolic post-hardcore."

–MetalSucks
