Sonic Poison (Sheer Terror, etc.) announce debut

Official press release: Sonic Poison, the new hardcore project from members of Sheer Terror, The Casualties, Deathcycle, Disnihil, and Concrete Cross, have emerged with their explosive self-titled debut EP, due out June 22nd from LifeLine Records. Pre-orders for the release are available now and to celebrate the band have teamed with Noisey to premiere "Another Day of Misery" one of the EP's venomous hardcore haymakers. Noisey called the track "a nasty, less-than-two minute exercise in Black Flag-isms that would have fit perfectly alongside the Keith Morris era of the band." Listen to "Another Day of Misery" via Noisey: How do you start a modern hardcore punk band, play it the old fashioned way with no gimmicks, but still be relevant in a world of dime-a-dozen retro-hardcore? It starts with passion, inspiration, creative aggression, and something to prove. Sonic Poison is the brain child of Ron Grimaldi of Deathcycle on vocals, Rick Lopez of The Casualties on guitar, Anthony Corallo of Sheer Terror, Concrete Cross, and Disnihil on drums, and Tom Clavin of Concrete Cross and Disnihil on bass. The band is four lifers coming together to create fast, pissed, uncompromising hardcore for no other reason than true love of the genre. With such an impressive combined resumé, the Sonic Poison could have easily rested on their laurels, but in true DIY fashion the EP was recorded by Corallo himself in the band's basement and practice space. The band then recruited Chad Lawson (artwork for Backtrack, Rude Awakening, Expire, many more) to provide pitch perfect old school style cover art. Sonic Poison has no pretense, no posturing, just four tracks of pummeling drums, distorted bass, buzzsaw guitars, and throat-shredding vocals. This is raw, angry hardcore at its best. Sonic Poison track list: 1. Will It Ever End? 2. Another Day of Misery 3. Intro / Mass Surveillance 4. Clock Tick

The B9 brats are going to soak this shit up and pleasure all over their vinyl collections. Hardcore is dead.

Yeah nop pretense but they have a logo like Municipal Waste. The day Noisey (Vice who didn't give two shits about hardcore in the '90s) tells me what hardcore is is the day I stop listening to it. This song is ehhh. NYC is really hurting for orignal underground music in general (it's over hardcore-wise.) Lifers? I never saw any of these guys around in the '80s or '90s save Rick who was, is ,and always will be a cheeseball wannabe UK punk like his band The Casualties. T
