Artist: Every Time I Die
Description:Buffalo's magnificently brutal metallic punk ensemble Every Time I Die is set to unleash Ex Lives this March 5th. The new album was produced by renowned producer Joe Barresi (Tool, The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age) and offers an unrelenting onslaught of ingeniously composed and furiously executed cathartic hardcore.
This is the band's highly anticipated follow up to 2009's raging masterwork New Junk Aesthetic, which Absolute Punk heralded as a musical "weapon of mass destruction." From the syncopated chaos of the opening salvo "Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space" to the progressive mosh anthem "A Wild, Shameless Plain" and relentless metal riffage of "The Low Road Has No Exits" Ex Lives sees Every Time I Die further tempering their aggression while experimenting with new instrumentation such as banjo (see the sinister intro of "Partying Is Such Sweet Sorrow").
