Out today: AXIS - Show Your Greed

Axis' full-length debut, Show Your Greed, is out today on Good Fight Music.

Stream the EP via Metal Injection, here.

Buy it, here.

Show Your Greed was mixed by Taylor Young of Nails and Twitching Tongues and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell). From Orlando, Florida, Axis' twisting, turning, metallic hardcore is chaotic and anthemic in a way that would make the late '90s ballers – Turmoil, Buried Alive, Kiss It Goodbye, et al. – proud. The band concludes a long summer of touring tonight, alongside labelmates Of Feather and Bone.

Axis, Of Feather and Bone:

Sep 4 - Columbia, SC @ New Brookland Tavern

"If you think fondly of hateful Philly bands like Starkweather and Turmoil; if you were down with Converge and Coalesce back when they played mathy chugga-chugga-stop breakdowns; if you wish Botch, Burnt By The Sun, and Kiss It Goodbye had released more music: congratulations! You have the chutzpah to appreciate the good kind of metalcore... Axis pretty much stick to the established template for this kinda thing on Show Your Greed, but they are so goddamn good at it..."

 "A hellish storm of gnashing teeth and balled-up fists... This is straight up pummelling you into the ground with every passing second."

–Metal Injection

"Packing plenty of punch for modern-day hardcore crowds, [Axis] definitely recalls the discordant '90s work of Turmoil, Deadguy, and Kiss It Goodbye. 'Discouraged' hits like a sledgehammer, with atonal, chunky riffage and bone-bashing grooves supporting full fierce tough guy howling."

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

"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."

"A potent blast of metallic hardcore that's passionate and emotional... Sometimes chaotic, other times groovy there's never a dull moment."
