AXIS + Substream

"Florida quintet Axis is a hardcore band in the sense that Converge or The Dillinger Escape Plan are hardcore bands... Grinding, gnashing and chaotic, full of primal aggression yet surprisingly calculated destruction."
–Substream

"Metallic hardcore that will remind listeners of esteemed fan favorites such as Turmoil and Kiss It Goodbye"
–Lambgoat

The title track off Axis' debut LP, Show Your Greed, has premiered via Substream Magazine.

Likening the band to Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan, Substream editor Scott Heisel describes the young Florida band's sound as "grinding, gnashing and chaotic, full of primal aggression yet surprisingly calculated destruction."

Listen, here.

Show Your Greed, mixed by Taylor Young of Nails and Twitching Tongues, sees a September 4th release date on Good Fight Music. Pre-order the album, here.
