Smash Your Enemies
At this stage, the hardcore scene is exceedingly familiar territory for Smash Your Enemies. Since their official formation in 2008, they’ve been putting in the work, the result of which has been a series of shows throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, as well as a stream of EPs across the past decade. Each fresh release is a reinstatement of intent--indeed, their previous effort, 2019's Become Death, was praised for its no-nonsense application of pugilistic fury. In the words of No Echo, "the intimidating metallic hardcore on display is as cold blooded as their homestate’s punishing winter.".
