Right now, DC’s hardcore scene is stronger than it’s been at any point since at least the early ’90s, and one of the reasons is Red Death, the DIY retro-thrash band who released the excellent debut album Permanent Exile in 2015. Next week, they’ll follow it up with a new one that might be even better. The new LP Formidable Darkness is eight songs of breakneck hooks and chugging mosh parts and cat-in-a-blender solos. It kicks all kinds of ass. We already posted the title track, and now you can stream the whole thing below.
Formidable Darkness is out 12/8 on Triple B.
