Gone is the pretense, gone is the pose. Now is the time for Backbiter; an unreckoned force of aggression and progression in a climate of contrived “experimentation” and calculated, genre-self-imprisoning. Like fellow Pacific Northwest bands G.L.O.S.S. and The Angries, the sound is based in straight-forward hardcore punk—but with knowledge, appreciation, and dabbling execution of the many sub-sub-genres hardcore has spawned over the decades—making the sound fresh, vital, and totally uncompromising.
