OUT TO WIN: Persist and Destroy: CD

I’m older than a lot of you and I don’t consider this hardcore. This is straight up metal that is similar to having a wrestler bash a steel folding chair on your head. The riffs are heavy and the double bass drums drop low tones into the chest. The vocals are so harsh that a blood vessel broke in my own eye. My only complaint I have of this release is that it only has six songs. The metal in me went into withdrawals after this ended. Might not be your cup of tea, but the hair on my head wanted to grow for this one.
