DEATHWISH: Out for Blood: LP

Out for Bloodwas one of Beer City’s many Record Store Day releases in 2015, showcasing a stellar, current Wisconsin outfit in a semi-high profile way. Deathwish is heavily reminiscent of other popular metal-friendly hardcore bands of today, with Midnight being a prime example. The production is tight, the lyrics are fierce, and one of the band members hilariously goes by the name Guinea Pig Champion. It’s a taut full-length, clocking in at well under a half-hour, which is the way hardcore full-lengths should be. It’s definitely worth seeking out, and Deathwish is sure to make quite a dent in their scene if this great record is any indication of their capabilities.   –Art Ettinger (Beer City)
