Arms Race - New Wave Of British Hardcore
ARMS RACE unleash their debut album after a well-received 6-track demo in 2013 and a 6-track 7" EP in 2014 on Quality Control HQ and Painkiller. Arms Race arrived on the scene fully formed with their powerful and gnarly UK-meets-USA hardcore: their signature sound of a vocalist chewing on glass is backed by one of the most solid rhythm sections in HC these days, and the guitar work adds a metallic element making the whole sound gigantic while keeping the ugliness and aggression to the max. NWOBHC is a statement of no-frills hardcore that is not scared to reach out to different corners of the punk and metal world.
New Wave Of British Hardcore was recorded by James Atkinson at Mutiny Studios and sounds bright and powerful. It comes housed in a sleeve designed by Andrew Fletcher with extra artwork by Nicky Rat who doubles as bass player. There is a download code, and a poster insert.
