MEEK IS MURDER + Revolver

On the eve of the EP's May 5th release date, Revolver is now streaming Meek Is Murder's Onward EP. 

Stream this charging beast of a record, right here.

Onward sees its official release tomorrow, May 5th, as one side of the Onward/Into the Sun LP on Rising Pulse Records (Candiria, Spylacopa). On the other side is Meek's 2011 EP, Into the Sun Where It Falls Off the Sky, available digital-only until now. 

Onward was recorded/mixed by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Old Wounds). Into the Sun... was recorded/mixed by Kevin Antreassian (East of the Wall, Gridlink). Both were mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

Order the Onward/Into the Sun LP in three color vinyl options from Rising Pulse, here!

From Brooklyn, New York, Meek Is Murder is a "chaos-core" power trio whose drummer Frank Godla also mans the throne for Enabler and whose vocalist/guitarist Mike Keller is a former member of The Red Chord. Over the course of six releases (and many shows) in the past six years, they have honed their style: a precarious balance of precision/shred and primitivism/recklessness/driving-straight-off-a-cliff.

Meek Is Murder and Enabler hit the road in June for a US/Canada tour, with Godla drumming for both bands.

"A Brooklyn hardcore band... that'll assault your ears in the most invigorating way possible. Equal parts chaotic mathcore and sludgy doom."
–VICE

"Face-ripping sonic assault of dizzying riffage and bloody-throated screamoidness... Damaged-era Black Flag in a car crash with metallic hardcore merchants Botch."
–Noisey

"Technical hardcore action." 
–Guitar World

"Pulverizing... sounds like technical hardcore madness performed inside a fire tornado."
–Alternative Press

"A furious head nod to the glorious days of mid-to-late '90s chaos core in the vein of superheroes like Coalesce, Botch, Jesuit, Converge..."
–Decibel

"A relentless, visceral expression of both pain and hope, [Meek Is Murder] will remind you why you ever got into extreme music in the first place."
–MetalSucks

"Riffs the size of aircraft carriers... Any of you still lamenting the loss of Botch will fall on this like a pack of hungry wolves."
–Terrorizer

"[Meek Is Murder] takes the intense fisticuffs of Lords, smashes it against Pig Destroyer's rabid proficiency and still comes across like an exorcism..."
–Exclaim
