GREED WORM / BLACKWATER SNIPER - DANCE TONIGHT! DECOMPOSITION TOMORROW!

Chicago bands Greed Worm and Blackwater Sniper have teamed up for a split EP with two songs from each band. Its title and artwork references screamo legends Orchid, but Blackwater Sniper offer up noise/electronics-infused powerviolence (cyberviolence, if you will), and Greed Worm (who share members with Crowning and Snuffed and released their debut EP Hell Is Real last year via Tomb Tree Tapes) tell No Echo that they aim to fuse hardcore, sludge, and nu-metal, citing Botch, Slipknot, Cult Leader, Primitive Man, and Disembodied as their top five influences. You can definitely hear that coming through on the two ragers they contribute here.
