This is a good example of a split release done right. Legion, from Birmingham, AL (members of Die Young and Coliseum) and Mammoth Grinder (members of Hatred Surge), from Austin, TX, both play heavy, fast hardcore music in similar styles, but each are strong enough to hold their own on their respecti.


This is a good example of a split release done right. Legion, from Birmingham, AL (members of Die Young and Coliseum) and Mammoth Grinder (members of Hatred Surge), from Austin, TX, both play heavy, fast hardcore music in similar styles, but each are strong enough to hold their own on their respective sides.

Legion follow up their debut 7", Saviour, with two brand new tracks of intense, stop-and-start hardcore with great dual guitar arrangements as well as killer basslines throughout with strong Integrity influence. The production on these tracks bring out all the intricacies in their sound without distracting from an absolutely livid vocal approach.

Mammoth Grinder are a little more straightforward, but still have a lot of range and remind me of Cripple Bastards. They have a new album coming out soon on Relapse and tons of tour dates, so watch out!

This was probably written awhile back, but the Mammoth Grinder "Extinction of Humanity" record has been re-released on CD by Relapse already. I saw them a little over a month ago and they absolutely killed me. Full stacks in a basement. Listening to the records you'd never know they were only a three piece. I'll keep my eyes open for this 7".
