Judgement Day – The Altar EP

Let’s just be honest. It’s 2015. No one is really going to be breaking any new ground in the hardcore or metal genres. What’s done is done. It’s either good music, or it’s not. Judgement Day’s debut ep The Altar, is good!

In the simplest of of descriptions, The Altar is what I imagine Pantera would have sounded like if they were a brutal hardcore band. The Altar features some great guest appearances including the frontmen from Messengers, World Of Pain, and Bleeding Through. Each guest vocal adding a different depth and color to the songs that make each and every track on this all too short ep very interesting and different from each other.

Ago of Innocence’s is a blistering opener for the ep. Chad from Messenger’s vocals add a nice low guttural tone to Godfather’s almost sing-songy yell. The hook on Seek feels like a classic Seventh Star chorus. Easy to sing and a song that would make it a great crowd song live. Vision of a Sanctuary simultaneously combines one of the most brutal breakdowns you’ll ever hear with an angelic like vocal that creates a dynamic I don’t think I’ve ever heard before. Rise is a pure circle pit song. Fast, short, and to the point. Get the crowd up and moving! The title track is the most metal song on the album (which makes sense since it features Brandan from Bleeding Through).

It’s an ep that I wish was a full-legnth. Is there a better compliment than that? I just wanted more. I can’t wait for more music from Judgement Day. 4.5 out of 5 Stars.

Rhema Joins On The Attack Records

OnTheAttack Records is pleased to announce that Rochester, New York, based Rhema is the latest to join the OTA family of bands.  Stylistically, Rhema is a hybrid of sorts, layering elements of often dark, emotional hardcore over early metallic hardcore.  At times fast… at times emotive and angst- ridden.  Always powerful.  Lyrically, Rhema deals with difficult issues and raw personal struggles of band members with an unfiltered and sometimes painful honesty.

Formed in August 2013, Rhema features Jonathan Barefoot (guitars), David McPherson (vocals), Caleb Barefoot (drums) and Adam Kramer (bass).  Rhema has plans to enter the studio in the coming months for a full scale release later this year.

“Chainsaw The Musical” Joins OnTheAttack Records

OnTheAttack Records is pleased to announce that Missouri-based hard music band Chainsaw The Musical has joined its roster.  Defying conventional description, Chainsaw The Musical stands on the musical shoulders of metalcore delivering creative yet filthy guitar hooks, passionate vocal passages, and thunderous precision and pace from bass and drums.  

“We felt that Chainsaw The Musical was the perfect addition to our growing roster,” said OnTheAttack Records.  “Passionate.  Purpose-filled, heavy hardcore. Much like what you’d expect if your favorite heavy math-rock band also had a sense of poetic whimsy.  We’re looking forward to supporting the band as they prepare for their full length debut album later this year.”  Chainsaw The Musical features Steven Hackworth (vocals), Austin Williams (guitar), James Davis (bass), and Jon Waggoner (drums).
