The Rival Mob

The Rival Mob is reviving the classic NY/DC hardcore sound outta Boston.  This is an undeniably raging band with musical experience to spare.  These instant classics are played at break-neck speeds and loaded with massive riffs, thunderous bass, thick drums and utterly vicious vocals.  This band is nuts and hopefully keeps spitting out gold in the years to come.  Snag all of their mammoth jams below,  get caught in the mosh, chant your brains out and dig face!  DIG.

Tragedy is still as pulverizing and heavy as they were from the start.  These guys formed back in 1999 and constructed an assaulting brand of hardcore punk adding elements of d-beat relative to Discharge and some Japanese styles.  This band hits fucking hard!  Thick, war-like drums and bass are the backbone to thick chugging riffs and howling guttural vocals.  I've been bumping their Vengeance LP lately and couldn't get them off my mind so here you go.  Enjoy these rippers and dig.
