Hardcore moves ever closer to holocaustal-critical mass with Botch’s We Are The Romans, which expands upon the work done by Cave In to bring finality through definitive expression. Sharing both experimental audacity and absurdist song titles with other notable precursors, Botch show that apocalypse-age hardcore is more than equal to non-rock forms when it comes to soundtracking the end of days. A Hydra Head release.
