Maryland bands never fall short on extremity. Since the mid-’90s STRONG INTENTION have been punishing the underground with their own blend of New York-influenced hardcore breakdowns and blistering grindcore. Their unique sound has allowed them the longevity to play out and tour with such acts as CRIPPLE BASTARDS, DISFEAR, PHOBIA, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, ROTTEN SOUND, D.R.I., LOCK UP and MISERY INDEX, among others, over their extensive career… and they’re just getting started.
STRONG INTENTION have an extensive back-catalog of releases behind them and their latest slab of audio discontent is hardly an exception. Entitled “Razorblade Express”, the six-track behemoth features a bass work by CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s Derek Engemann as well as a guest appearance by EYEHATEGOD frontman Mike IX Williams on the title track and “3rd Space Gorilla Generator”. With the first press limited to just 500 copies, this isn’t one to sleep on.
Comments STRONG INTENTION founding frontman Zac Ohler: “It’s been far too long since we put out a record, so having these six songs of ‘no hope/no future distort’ released by a killer label and having long time friend Mike IX join us in this act of terrorism seems to be the perfect fit. It’s time to rise and grind!”
Due on June 1 via PATAC Records, “Razorblade Express” will feature the following track listing:
01. Razorblade Express (featuring Mike IX Williams)
02. Messiah Whore
03. Holes In The Wall
04. 3rd Space Gorilla Generator (featuring Mike IX Williams)
05. Rat Factory
06. Slaughter Intelligence
In conjunction with the release, STRONG INTENTION will drag their filth to the stage alongside fellow grind heathens, PHOBIA. The East Coast Filth Tour 2012 will commence June 3 in Detroit.
