Ramming Speed Sign With Prosthetic Records
From Prosthetic Records Website:
PROSTHETIC RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of up-and-coming grind/thrash metallers RAMMING SPEED. The group’s full-length PROSTHETIC debut, “Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die,” was recorded at GodCity Studios with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Black Breath) and mastered at AudioSiege with Brad Boatwright (Sleep, High on Fire, SUNN O))), Tragedy). The album is tentatively set for a late spring/early summer release. More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Drummer Jonah Livingston commented on the signing: ”We are incredibly excited to finally announce that we’ve signed on with Prosthetic Records, a label whose roster proves its dedication to all facets of heavy music. While our band has been extremely lucky to work with labels like Tankcrimes and Brutal Panda, this is an incredible opportunity and we’re ready for the step forward! See you on the road!”
Hailing from Boston, this heavy-hitting quintet — whose sound combines the charging rhythms of d-beat punk and the aggression of thrash with NWOBHM-worthy guitar harmonies and grind’s blinding speed — is no stranger to the metal scene, having previously released a variety of records, tapes and EPs through several labels. Their aggressive tour schedules across the U.S. and Europe with such notable acts as Trap Them, Holy Grail, Torche, Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocaust, Phobia, Black Tusk and Saviours led Noisecreep to call the group “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal.” Fittingly, the band will spend April and May touring with Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood and Revocation in the northeast and midwest; full dates and details can be found below.
Keep a lookout for further details on the group’s upcoming album on the band’s website: https://www.facebook.com/rammingspeed
“Venomous death/grind-laden, hair-swirling hardcore fury somewhere in the sonic Bermuda Triangle between Black Flag, Napalm Death and DRI.” — Terrorizer
“A fuck-off great raft of pile-driver thrash, chock to the gills with bleed-speed riffs, sledgehammer heaviness and lyrical dystopia.” — Metal Hammer
“Listeners will be hard-pressed to find another band more enthusiastic about every corner of the thrash, grindcore and punk scenes…the perfect blend of thrash, punk and light-hearted enthusiasm.” — Lambgoat
Seen these guys live more times than any other band (they are local, but still) and I can say they totally deserve the recognition. Nice guys that are hard-working and obviously love what they do. I have been waiting to hear this album for awhile, and now they have found a label to release it on! Go see them if they are coming by, especially on the Goatwhore/3 Inches of Blood/Revocation tour!
