Best press photo ever? Gang Signs.
Gang Signs

Hardcore/sludge/crust hybrid Gang Signs have been a go-to-NYC local as of late, and for good reason. The once duo with a Black-Cobra-like-tone have officially grown 50% bigger in personnel and infinitely thicker with the recent addition of Denis Bramley (ex-Atakke, current Trenchgrinder) on low-end. The band previously released a demo sans Bramley, but now you can stream their newest demo, with bassist included, below for the first time.

As previously mentioned, Gang Signs will play Saint Vitus TONIGHT (3/9) with Hate Eternal as well as the upcoming BV event with Morne, The Swan King, and Git Some on March 30th. Tickets for both Hate Eternal and Morne are still available.

In related news, Atakke have released their long-shelved LP to Bandcamp. Stream that below and head to their site to pick up a copy.

Reminder: Trenchgrinder play March 23rd at Acheron with Hull and Batillus.

All streams are below.

BBG, i will leave you with a quote from aesop dekker (you may have seen it already but fuck it):

"99.9% of bands that identify as "Sludge Metal" are shitty"

think about that for a minute before writing your next band description.

The best press photo of all time is Grinderman's from 2010.

3:11 Just because someone doesnt like a type of music, doesnt mean shit. That goes for you, Aesop Dekker, BBG, and anyone on the planet. No one is an expert, its all opinion and if you don't think so you need to start thinking for yourself.

Pretty lame photoshop. These guys look like lame , crusty, Jews, especially the slope...

Aesop Dekker, he's a pretty shitty drummer. Marrow of the spirit has some weak ass drumming on it, his kick playing is really sloppy and off time,fuck his opinion.

No, I hate triggered death sausage drums.
I dig real drummers like Meg White and Adrienne Davies...

Never heard of Gang Signs before this post....and I live in NYC and go to Metal shows all of the time...hmmmm...

Anyway, they are ok.
Not great, but not terrible.

I go to shows and watch bands to see if I like them.
I tell them so in my own words.
I let a band's music describe itself to me rather than make an opinion based on a third party's choice of words.
I don't buy merch from bands that don't impress me.
Gang Signs were good last night.
Anonymous internet shit talking is for posers.
These are all facts.
