None or Unknown
The gnarliest punk album of the year just dropped. Love Is A Lie, Filth Is Eternal from Filth Is Eternal (formerly F'd and B'd) reminds us that there was a time when Seattle bands were considered dangerous, when Mudhoney might jump on your face and half the roster of Sub Pop didn't look like even Starbucks wasn't gentrified enough for their tepid, pale faced indie rock bullshit. Filth Is Eternal plays an explosive blend of go for the throat, not a moment wasted punk n' roll married to Sonic Youth flirting dissonance and with tones ugly enough to make Fudge Tunnel blush and The Bronx seem like Captain & Tennille. Fronted by an actual snarling wild animal over some of the best riffs and beats you have ever heard. This record reminds me of a show I played in 1997 with my old band Fuse where I got wasted on unclean tapline Rolling Rocks and bottom shelf whiskey after getting a tattoo and ended up rolling on a country bar floor half nude and bleeding and smearing black grime and tattoo inky residue and blood everywhere, waking up the next day feeling kind of aroused and ready to fight literally anything but also half dead. Sirhan Sirhan is gonna get out of jail and be all stoked to enter polite society and this shit will play and it will retrigger a hypnotic trance and make dude go all Winter Soldier on some dudes. If your band doesn't bang as hard as the ending of "The Dog", just quit now.

Elitist, which consists of Alex DeHeart (vocals), Julian Rodriguez (guitar), Sean Hall (guitar), Mike Danese (bass) and Andrew Slane (drums), formed in December 2010 and released their debut EP, “Caves“, that same year. With mesmerizing guitar lines and fluid fretboard work, it’s not hard to believe that both guitarists in the band received musical teutelage from AJ Minette of The Human Abstract.Add to My Radar
The World We Knew is back with DEATH DEALER (BlkHeart Group), a record the hard working and explosive live act vowed to make their best and most well rounded yet. Along with the new Bury Your Dead it is sure to be one of the most energetic releases in Metalcore this year and is a great place to discover the band if you have somehow missed them already. I have seen them live twice at various Stillborn events and they leveled the room on both occasions. Don’t underestimate these guys!

We all have had times that meant the world but are gone now. TWWK are here to underscore the agony and ecstasy of life with jagged, passionate metalcore ferocity.
