Salt Lake City band Gaza's reign of terror -- fought with a molotov cocktail of hardcore, sludge, math, and grind -- has a new weapon, a forthcoming set of unholy hymns entitled No Absolutes in Human Suffering. The LP is due via Black Market Activities on July 31st, and you can check out "Mostly Hair & Bones" below, the first song to emerge from that record. If you want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes, make sure to swing by their Facebook page for the lyrics to the song.

As mentioned, Gaza will hit the road with Black Cobra later this month for a tour which brings the two bands to NYC on June 25 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are still available. Corrosion of Conformity and Torche are on some of the dates too, but won't be at the Saint Vitus show.

3:16, it would be cliched if they weren't one of the best (and first) to do this

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2012 6:15 PM

I think 3:16 meant the description is cliched. And it is. Reign of terror? Unholy hymns? They're a band playing music for crying out loud.

I saw GAZA last night in Houston last night. The show was amazing. Yes amazing. I meet the band befor the show. Cool, down to earth guys. Polite. Jon is a tree. 20 ft tall. Casey/drummer, said he wasn't a trained drummer. Very suprising. Said he was influenced by Abe from Deftones. Mike/guitar gave me a deal on a tee shirt. (thanks bro, very cool of you) I'm 1 month behind on Morgage. Andrew?/bassist wasn't as talkative, but was cool, and his bass sounded like the weight of hell, every note was crushing.I play bass, and I Honestly think that dude is A bad ass bassist. Do people say bravo to metal bands? I do. Bravo (all capital letters) The show that GAZA put on last night was the kind of show you only see a hand for bands in your life give. Killer.
