“A powerful blast of metallic hardcore” – No Echo

“A tribute to the roots of a sound that has shaped and at the same time continues to influence generations of hardcore fans” – Metal Italia

Tokyo based outfit Loyal To The Grave have been mainstays in the Japanese hardcore scene since 1998. Today, the band shares Rectitude on Triple B Records, their first EP in seven years. The 5 songs on their new EP exemplify the relentless, metallic sound the band has crafted over 14 releases. Serpentine riffs and crushingly heavy drums support the dynamic vocals, punctuated by stomp-worthy breakdowns that are equal parts creative and ferocious. Scott Vogel (Terror) lends vocals on “Remain Steadfast”, one of the most pulverizing songs on the EP and a masterclass in heavy hardcore songwriting.

Rectitude was recorded by Devu at DevuRecordingStudio and Gaku Taura, mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. You can stream it HERE and order vinyl from Triple B Records.

Loyal To The Grave is Koba – Vocals, Hiro – Guitar, Hiroyuki – Guitar, Takashi – Bass, and Kairi – Drums.
