“One moment you’ll be accosted by prime Trap Them shit-kickin’, only to be completely sideswiped by a riff seemingly from the infernal hand of Hanneman. Elsewhere, Disfear-worthy D-beat ‘n’ roll, blasts of crossover thrash akin to Iron Age, nasty death metal syncopations and even screeds of black metal all jostle for supremacy.” — Decibel Magazine

Spawned from the ruins of Detroit, Michigan in 2006, SNAFU independently released their debut full-length, Fear The Future, in 2013 after years of false starts. The songs bore a raw punk expression of raging cynicism and the destructive nature of mankind. Further honing their artistry, 2015’s Present Day Plague LP stayed true to their aggressive raw punk roots while working in elements of thrash and grind. Punk News championed of the band’s, “angry, relentless thrash,” while New Noise wrote, “Loud in your face anger with furiously high energy that wipes any crowd into a frenzy, it’s hardcore music that comes at you at a unrelenting fast and furious pace.”
Since then, the four-piece has established a reputation for delivering some of the fiercest live performances in the country. Their sound — a fusion of everything from Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust to Negative Approach and Cro-Mags — has quickly come to resonate with audiences globally, while their blackened thrash approach calls to mind early Slayer and Sepultura.
“…bleak, thrashy hardcore…” — BrooklynVegan
“This album features a lot. Gutturals filled with passion, low, heavy guitars, chugging at a speed Slayer would be impressed with. Thunderous basslines and a skilled yet not overly virtuosic drummer are sprinkled in, creating the sounds you hear on Exile… all killer, no filler. ” — Metal Epidemic
