Current and former members of Dropdead, Ulcer and Paindriver have come together to offer a blistering blend of d-beat, crossover and old school thrash with their new project, Hell Bent. This Rhode Island quintet harnesses the skills they’ve collectively accrued in their respective projects to deliver some furious, thrashing madness that hardcore fans new and old should dig.
On Friday, January 12, Hell Bent will self-release their self-titled, debut EP on limited edition cassette. In anticipation of its unveiling, we at Svbterranean are stoked to bring you an exclusive stream of its penultimate track, “Condemned to Life”. Check out the track after the break along with a brief interview with vocalist Badger and guitarist Shawn.
2017 has come to a close, which means every blog and music publication gets to bombard you with their shitty opinions on what they thought the best music of the year was. Svbterranean is no different, I am sorry to say. Starting today, a bulk of our writers will begin posting their favorite releases of 2017. Feel to comment and tell us your favorites and what we might have missed. You can also troll us, we don’t mind.
Without further adieu, here is my top 30 releases of the year. There was a multitude of good releases this year and it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to JUST 30. These are the releases that made an impression on me and stuck with me the most year. Just like last year, my favorite records listed span across genres and are not limited to just the extreme music we typically cover on the site. I hope you find something you like. Get into it.

During my first year of university, I landed a bit of a dream part-time job when I got hired at a His Master’s Voice (HMV) store in downtown Ottawa. For those unfamiliar, HMV was at one point a well-respected music retailer known for their extensive selection of compact discs and vinyl. Near the start of my time employed there a record called Antenna by Boston based Cave In was released. The record received a perfect review in Alternative Press who subsequently compared it to Loveless, Mezcal Head, and You’d Prefer an Astronaut. An afternoon of work for myself around this time would include playing the record in the store while customers shop. My curiosity went from just that to total awe based on the high quality of their songwriting, guitar playing, and music.

Caustic will be released on October 6 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.

Richmond, Virginia crossover thrashers Municipal Waste have premiered their new track “Amateur Sketch” from their upcoming album, titled Slime and Punishment.
