A SECOND FROM THE SURFACE
THE STREETS HAVE EYES
THIS DARK REIGN

Punishing noise rock with deep ties to hardcore and death metal is what comes out of the trio A Second From the Surface. This Minnesota unit exhibits their knack for condensing aggressions from a multitude of different genres into compact tracks such as the anthemic hardcore meets blast beat grind of "The Crawl". Menacing yet somewhat catchy, these guys unleash a massive amount of destruction sans fanfare and celebration, opting to cut the jugular from the get-go like "Fleeting Swarm" and the title cut. If you like it raw and uncompromising, this act's bastardized mix of all things extreme will get the blood pumping for sure.
