Thursday Night Grind Time Features Torch Runner by orlandooom407

This week has proven rather saturated with insane heavy shows for Central Florida. From Swans playing tonight at The Social, the show featured above these words and Tombs and 16 playing Saturday at Will’s Pub the ear plugs are being put to work. What’s wonderful about Thursday in particular though can be answered through viewing this music video created a couple years back by Torch Runner:

Brutal silliness, yes indeed. The space coast punks have a hand in this hot fiasco too because Nuclear Death Squad will perform come Thursday.

To sweeten that pot Devalued from Miami have been tossed into the chaos, and you can preview their music along with local hardcore hammer faces POWERDUMP below:

Municipal Waste Tour Diary by endlessgonzo

via Decibel Magazine:

5/29 – Orlando FL:
Something weird is happening in Florida while we are down here. People are O.D.-ing on some weird ass drug called Bath Salts, are freaking out and ripping each others faces off. It’s the perfect state for the Waste to play!

It was a cool show at The Social and afterwards a ton of us went next door to the Bar B Que bar. A bunch of old friends and my other band mates in No Friends were all in attendance and a lot of shots were had. Brad from Gwar rolled up there, too. Unfortunately, all this excitement of being around so many friends caused me to drink a little too hard and black out a little too early. One of the last things I remember was eating Del Taco burritos on the bus alone by myself in the dark. Tour life is so sexy.

Ew, Del Taco? These guys are the most reckless band in the world if that’s true. I’d rather stagedive into a Mortal Kombat-style spike pit.

SICK FIX to Release ‘Vexed’ on A389 Recordings So We’re Sharing a Track by orlandooom407

Michelle Northam, vocalist for DC/Baltimore Hardcore brutes Sick Fix (A389 Recordings), incited quite the laugh with this roaring candid photo (props to Corky Berlin Photography for the shot). Today marks some exciting news for the band as they just announced an upcoming tour of Europe with the ever satirically pissed: Coke Bust. Armed with their hyper tense songs and a healthy appetite for aggression I’m envious for Floridian residency, and occupation, would prevent me from attending one of these shows.

07/20 Rokycany, CZ @ Fluff Fest

New Video In Anticipation of Primate LP Vinyl Release July 3rd by orlandooom407

When Primate played their first show in Orlando last year I was tasked with escorting Bill Kelliher (Mastodon) from Orlando International down to Will’s Pub. Them, along with Atlanta noise rockers Whores (Brutal Panda Records), gave a stunning harder than mountains performance alongside Junior Bruce (A389 Records). In support of their pressing of their debut LP Draw Back A Stump the band has released a brand new video:

Here’s the press release that was coupled with this excellent piece of musical film:

“Two separate anthems from grindsmiths PRIMATE‘s debut LP Draw Back a Stump have been set loose on a public rampage this week. Today fans can hear the raging track “Pride” via a Relapse lyric video AT THIS LOCATION.

Recently, Metal Injection included the album’s opening/title track “Draw Back a Stump” on an exclusive twenty-song Relapse podcast downloadable RIGHT HERE.

After an initial 1000-run CD pressing released by the band directly in 2011 was quickly devoured by an immediately ravenous fanbase, PRIMATE will re-unleash their debut album Draw Back A Stump via Relapse on July 3rd through CD, LP and deluxe digital download formats. The seven hymns from the initial version now include additional rhythm guitars and have been remixed and remastered, and are joined with three previously-unreleased bonus tracks for this edition. Pre-orders for the album are available HERE.

Atlanta’s villainous PRIMATE is comprised of vocalist Kevin Sharp, bassist/vocalist Dave Whitworth, drummer Shayne Huff and guitarists Bill Kelliher and Mike Brennan, an all-star lineup hellbent on delivering Grade-A punk the likes of which has not been set loose on the ears of the world since the glory days hardcore. Following several destructive live appearances last year after the album was initially released, this new version will see PRIMATE taking to the streets once again, as live confrontations and more are being planned to take place over the coming months.”
