New Jersey-based quintet SUBURBAN SCUM have just dropped a full album stream of their debut LP, “Ultimate Annihilation” over at New Noise Magazine and below. “Ultimate Annihilation” officially drops this Friday, May 20th through Flatspot Records and internationally through Reality Records (Europe) and Retribute Records (Japan). You can purchase the record at the band’s website.
Since 2010 SUBURBAN SCUM has toured abroad in support of multiple recordings, including their Internal War EP with Ride The Fury Records, the 2012-released Hanging By A Thread EP on 6131 Records, a split 7” with Incendiary, a split 12” with Xibalba and more. Their clear-cut delivery is elementally hardcore to the bone; completely enraged and outspoken, with enough metal to make its presence known and not overthrow the nucleus of the songs. Having made their presence known on tour with the likes of Expire, Rotting Out, Backtrack, Harm’s Way, Bitter End, Downpresser and many others, and their energetic performances at major festivals including This Is Hardcore, Sound & Fury, United Blood, Rain Fest and more.
Recorded, mixed and mastered with producer Will Putney at the Machine Shop in Belleville, New Jersey (Body Count, Vision Of Disorder, The Acacia Strain), Ultimate Annihilation delivers SUBURBAN SCUM’s tales of lifes harsh lows with more vibrant depth and devastating clarity than any of the band’s prior recordings. Taking the band’s riotous, straightforward energy to new levels of ferociousness through a dozen crushing tracks of heavy Jersey metallic hardcore, Ultimate Annihilation bears guest vocal contributions from Justice Tripp (Trapped Under Ice, Angel Du$t), Brendan Garrone (Incendiary), and Gregory Falchetto (The Mongoloids), and cover artwork by Jesse Schallart (Skeletonwitch, Xibalba, Discourse). The record will be released on May 20th through Flatspot Records. In addition, it will see international releases through Reality Records (Europe), and Retribute Records (Japan) in their respective areas.
