Decibel Magazine is now streaming the grinding Deep Wound Red EP by Virginia Beach metallic hardcore quartet ACCIDENT PRONE as the band self-releases the record this week.

Unloading six tracks in less than fifteen minutes, ACCIDENT PRONE‘s high-octane attack sound bleeds with technical elements and slamming grooves which merges a classic ’90s metalcore sound with a modern hardcore vibe on the Deep Wound Red EP. The record was produced by Lee Dyess (Against Me!, From First to Last, Evergreen Terrace), mastered by Brad Boatright (Oathbreaker, Code Orange, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Rusty Painter.

With their advance stream of the EP, Decibel notes, “If you like your hardcore metallic with a shot of spastic metalcore, look no further than ACCIDENT PRONE. The Virginia-based group check every box on their new EP, Deep Wound Red, employing dissonant riffs, beefy chugs and a rhythm section that just keeps getting lower and slower… a refreshing take on a crowded genre.”

ACCIDENT PRONE will independently release Deep Wound Red digitally this week and on CD shortly afterward; find digital preorders HERE and watch for CD preorders to be issued in the coming weeks.

Following an extensive US summer tour and a subsequent EP release weekend, ACCIDENT PRONE will hit the road again in October to support Deep Wound Red further.

Formed in late 2011, ACCIDENT PRONE began their journey by traveling out of town to play shows as often as possible soon after their local debut. After a string of EPs, a split, a full-length record, and several lineup changes, the band fully honed-in on their blend of modern hardcore and spastic metalcore, culminating with the release of their 2016 EP, Love. Hate., produced by Andreas Magnusson (Oh, Sleeper, The Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet). The band has continued to develop as musicians and songwriters by reaching a new apex on Deep Wound Red, the EP exhibiting the band’s savagely unique guitar riffs and seething, aggressive vocals layered on top of the technical, crushing rhythm section. Even as they’ve strayed into new territory with a refreshing display harmonious melodic sections, ACCIDENT PRONE has continued to stay true to their hardcore roots with an attitude and intensity matched by few in the current DIY scene.
