Axis' debut full-length Show Your Greed is out now on Good Fight Music. The album was mixed by Taylor Young of Nails and Twitching Tongues and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell). 

Relentless and real, Axis is at the forefront of a wave of young hardcore bands hooked on the metallic sounds of the late '90s. A review on Stereogum summed it up like this:

"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..."
