Thrash-punk quintet currently writing new material, preparing to shoot first-ever music video
Known as “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal,” thrash-infused punks RAMMING SPEED -- who've recently been holed up writing material for the follow-up to their Prosthetic debut "Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die" -- will take a break to hit the road with Municipal Waste, Madball and Suburban Scum on a week-long trek up the East Coast that kicks off tonight. The run will also include a pit stop at Monster Shop in Allston, Mass., where the band will shoot their first-ever music video. If you live in the area and would like to be a part of the madness, email RammingSpeedVideo@gmail.com for details!
Since the release of "Doomed to Destroy, Destined To Die," which was hailed as "a mixture of the party mentality of Andrew W.K. and the sickness of Slayer" (Ghostcult Magazine), RAMMING SPEED have maintained a consistent tour schedule throughout the U.S. and Canada with the likes of Valient Thorr and Toxic Holocaust, as well as appearing at Metal Injection's CMJ showcase (Black Anvil, Vattnet Viskar) and Fest 13. As of late, the band have spent most of their time writing for their sophomore label effort, which will be recorded this winter. Full details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Drummer Jonah Livingston shared insight on what to expect from upcoming release: "The new songs sound like Thin Lizzy's guitar section doing blow with Martyrdod at a house party while Jeff Hanneman's ghost smashes concrete blocks in the backyard. There's tons of guitar harmonies, D-beat and more brutal thrash and grind, but we've been working hard on the songwriting end of things -- keeping the riffs punishing while paying attention to the memorability and catchiness."
