Phoenix grind practitioners WOUNDVAC will release their pulverizing The Road Ahead EP via Corpse Flower Records this September.
Forged in the sweltering heat of the Arizona sun in 2014, WOUNDVAC is an unrelenting grind machine. After five years of shows and a handful of west coast tours, the band has cemented their place in Phoenix’s burgeoning heavy music scene. Self-releasing two EP’s — 2016’s Disgraced Convert and 2017’s Infamy as well as a number of splits and last year’s highly praised debut Terrorizing The Swarm, WOUNDVAC are looking to broaden their scope with their latest effort The Road Ahead, set to drop this fall. Captured at Sound Signal Studios with Zack Rippy (Wristmeetrazor), mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Converge, Integrity, Obituary) with cover art by Bite Radius Designs (Misery Index, Napalm Death, Benighted), WOUNDVAC‘s uncompromising mix of grind, hardcore punk, and death metal is expertly executed on this new EP and is spotlight on why they are the proverbial breath of fresh air in the crowded scene.
The Road Ahead will be released September 13th on CD, digital, and limited-edition vinyl (on translucent orange with red splatter) formats. For preorders, visit the Corpse Flower Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION where first single, “Tightening Chain,” can be streamed.
