Magic Bullet’s caustic Florida crushers MEATWOUND have just released a raging video of the band performing several tracks on their local radio show, lighting the studio up with several tracks from their newly-released second LP, Largo. The new footage is being broadcast from the Cvlt Nation headquarters.
Scope the footage of MEATWOUND live on WMNF 88.5 FM Tampa Bay at Cvlt Nation RIGHT HERE.
“Flesh Tag” from the Largo LP was also recently featured in an intense DigBMX video feature on pro BMX rider Matt Coplon playing RIGHT HERE.
MEATWOUND has added new tour dates to their Summer tour itinerary in support of Largo, which sees the band on the road for the second half of August, scorching their way up and down the East Coast, including shows with Bölzer, Trepaneringsritualen, Child Abuse, ASM, and more.
MEATWOUND – featuring members of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and more – delivers seven new songs of ungodly sonic devastation with Largo. While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding results this time around. As with their debut, the Largo LP was recorded by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and the record’s visuals were handled Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

“…while the record is filthy enough to give you cholera, it’s a fuckfest of bass-powered noiserock and feedback-as-riffage. Something like Coalesce covering Daughters, or maybe it’s the other way around, but not even that really gets at the guts of this stuff.” – Decibel Magazine
“Largo gets in, gets out, and leaves a trail of bodies in its wake. MEATWOUND took the sound they introduced on Addio and made it faster, uglier and more vicious than one could have hoped for. Those looking for a good throttling would be foolish not to dive into MEATWOUND‘s singular, visceral world.” – Svbterranean
“What they do is part avalanche, part concrete-splitter, part acrobatic team (wearing steel-toed boots), part hummingbird the size of a condor (shut up, I’m doing this my way). They’re manic and punishing, but they’re also precise and inventive – and it’s loads of fun to listen to them cut loose…” – No Clean Singing
“Hell, at a scant 27 minutes and some change, Largo is a runaway truck that concusses you before you get a chance to notice its license plate number… In terms of making what appears to be hellish racket sound palatable and catchy, MEATWOUND brings Botch’s catalog to mind. Not a bad place to be.” – Ghost Cult Magazine
