SPOTLIGHT: VIOLENT EXIT

All hail the Lonestar State. I don't think Texas has ever produced a bad band. With well-known crushers Bitter End, Power Trip, Mammoth Grinder, and the mythical Iron Age all hailing from this state it's no wonder that the young generation of bands is constantly producing some of the best hardcore, metal, and crossover material in the country. They've got big shoes to fill. Violent Exit is the Cinderella of this story in that case. They released a five track demo on May 21st and it gives life to every rumor you've ever heard about what Texas hardcore sounds like. The riffs that compel you to bang your head until your neck snaps, drum and bass parts that crush your ribs, and vocals that leave your brain scrambled. At the end of the demo you're left a drooling mass who can only say "more."
