Here's some fast, hard-hitting vegan/straight-edge hardcore from Boston's Terminal Crisis. These guys and girl spit out an unapologetic demo this past winter that blew me away at first listen. Throaty female fronted vocals are grunted over pummeling drums, ugly, distorted punk riffs and fuzzed-out bass lines. This band completely owns and combines everything from blazing fastcore, d-beat and classic Boston hardcore to make an insane sound all their own. I had the privilege to see them a couple months ago in Massachusetts with RVIVR, and their live set fucking slayed. Snag their beast of a demo below and dig your face off.
