Ever get that feeling like you wanna jump out of an airplane? Or ride a motorcycle about 100 miles an hour down the highway?? We do. RPM's, Rock Punk Metal.
Carved Up
Carved Up
Abrasive and lush. Caustic and commanding. A ball of physical, aggressive, post-whatever energy that remains just a little more bit charming. They are 4 pieces of work churning out late 90's inspired hardcore ala Ink and Dagger, Botch, Chavez, At The Drive-In.
Faking
Faking
Ruthless and machine stamped from the same kind of sonic foundry that used to produce menacing flyover state noise rock. An alloy of the rudest abrasive mathy angularity found in the nineties Amrep and Touch & Go camps, harkening back to an era of uncorrupted sonic battery. And Faking does it without the self-conscious sneer of retro-scene boot-licking – these men know the world of which they speak, this trio having been assembled out of the wreckage of seminal PA noise rock bands Gunna Vahm and Midiron Blast Shaft (both Reptilian alums).

The crunchy buzz saw riffs hammer down with calculated repetition and bleed into reverb drenched seasick leads. The vocals invoke threat, like a crime scene report read aloud long after an urgent warning wasn’t received. Thunderous rolling bass. Truly massive drums. The right kind of nastiness for the wrong kind of people. Full length album due in 2015.
