The young D.C. shit-rippers Red Death exist at some beautiful midpoint between old-school basement hardcore and old-school ’80s thrash-metal. If you’re planning to skateboard across an apocalyptic wasteland anytime soon, they are your ideal soundtrack. The band’s 16-minute basher of an album Permanent Vacation is about to drop, and we’ve already posted the title track. Now, here’s “Strategic Mass Delirium,” a 99-second burst of brutality that’s half over by the time the intro finishes up. Listen to it below.
Permanent Exile is out 4/21 on Grave Mistake; pre-order it here.
