MUSKET HAWK will release their long-awaited third album, Upside of Sick, March 29 on Unholy Anarchy Records. Another track from the album, "Hexagon," is available for streaming here.
Continuing to plumb the depths of extremity, MUSKET HAWK seek to annihilate any semblance of tranquility and bruise the psyches of fans and unsuspecting victims alike. Upside of Sick scrapes its way through sludge reverberations, while fomenting chaos through grindcore bursts with a punk aura that is as undeniable as it is palpable.Grab hold of something immovable and hang on for dear life!
Pre-order Upside of Sick
"Bruising and defiant, fiery and furious, a head-busting, blood-racing tableau of disgust and rage."
- No Clean Singing
"Imagine a drunk Swedish death metal band warming up with some sludge and grind covers. Punishing."
- The Mighty Decibel
"Grab hold of something immovable and hang on for dear life."
- The Sludgelord
"The grooves are only surpassed by the wholly unfettered slop thrash'n'death licks. Brutal and sloppy. Grooving and atonal. Musket Hawk is inescapable."
- Glacially Musical
"They’re just as hard to pin down as ever, and you’ll likely need a few times through the album to truly get a feel for everything that’s happening here. But once that’s happened, there’s something about the heavy grooves and sudden blasts that will give this one some longevity."
- Metal Trenches
"Musket Hawk reached for various forms of artistic expression and combined them, recording an intriguing album."
- Death Magnetic
"Intense, aggressive attack. Melt your eardrums!"
- JP's Music Blog

MUSKET HAWK Bio:
MUSKET HAWK formed from the ashes of A WARM GUN in 2011. After self-producing a series of demos, the band’s debut full-length The Form of Disgust was released via SMS Records in November 2013. Since then, MUSKET HAWK has released a live demo and a 7” split with Philadelphia’s SUNBURSTER (May 2015, Unholy Anarchy Records).
MUSKET HAWK play a killer live set, sharing the stage with the likes of WINDHAND, CHURCH OF MISERY, NOISEM, MASAKARI and PRIMATIVE MAN, to name a few. The band continues to refine and explore the depths of extreme music, and in conspiracy with Unholy Anarchy Records (Baltimore, MD) and Goodtimes Records (Australia), offer up their long awaited sophomore effort, Desolate.
