“These guys make fast, brutal, straight-ahead old-school hardcore.” – Stereogum
“The Bad Kind Decides is a great introduction to the music of Bad Blood and with its compact listening time it’s a short, sharp, shock of songs that crackle with energy.” – Distorted Sound
Buffalo, NY hardcore band Bad Blood have released their debut EP The Bad Kind Decides, out today on Flatspot Records. Across the five hard-hitting songs, the band have created a sound that packs honesty with aggression. Vocalist Scott Vogel (Terror, Buried Alive) took the helm on the lyrics, penning over the instrumentation crafted by guitarists Eric Ellman (They Live, Violent Way) and Mason Hutchins (Violent Way), bassist Greg Vinal (Exhibition) and drummer Nick Terlecky (Violent Way). The result is in your face, no gimmick hardcore full of pummeling riffs set for the mosh-pit.
Taking influence from ‘80s hardcore bands like Warzone and Brotherhood, the band name itself is a nod to Buffalo legendary hardcore band Zero Tolerance’s first 7 inch. The Bad Kind Decides was recorded live with producer Jay Zubricky (Mindforce, Snapcase) at GCR studios and mastered by Will Killingsworth (Orchid) at Dead Air Studios.
Having already played a handful of shows, the band will perform in Brooklyn, NY on April 7th at the Flatspot World pre-show alongside Outburst, Violent Way, Kharma and more, and have a show in hometown Buffalo, NY the next night with Chokehold and more.
