“…a dense mixture of noisy riffs, crushing rhythm section and angry vocals.” — Decibel on “Decrepit”
Botched & Flailed is the impending full-length debut from Louisville, Kentucky-based noisy hardcore behemoths COMESS. Captured by Tom Curtis of Dead Bird Studios in Louisville, Kentucky and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell, Vallenfyre) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon, the record boasts twenty-seven minutes of noise-strewn, nihilistic, audio bedlam.
In advance of its release, today Decibel Magazine spews forth the acerbic sounds of “Decrepit.” Issues the band of the track, “This abysmal track has to do with the destructive properties of mental illness; we fucking hate it so we wrote this track about it. Fuck stress. Bang your head.”
Adds Decibel, “It’s been a stacked year for hardcore releases, and we’re not even halfway through 2018. High profile releases from Harm’s Way, Turnstile and more, plus smaller acts like Hell To Pay, Svalbard and Homewrecker, have all come out, but bands like COMESS remind us that there’s still plenty of time left. Case in point: Botched & Flailed.”
Hear “Decrepit,” now streaming at Decibel Magazine, at THIS LOCATION.

COMESS is a heavy music project from Louisville, Kentucky. The band formed in late 2016, striving to create the most aggressive music to come out of the state. From their chaotic live performances, to their eerie, throat-slashing recordings, they found the name COMESS — a word defined as a confusing or noisy situation — to be a perfect fit. In February 2018, COMESS joined Jarvis Booking And Management spearheaded by John Jarvis of Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Scour and more. Stay tuned for COMESS to obliterate a town near you.
