I caught up with Chris Daily & Jeff Terranova of Smorgasbord Fanzine/Records and talked to them about some new things in the works and old… but tried not to repeat a lot of the stuff that has already been documented.
You might also be aware that Jeff played bass for legendary NY Straight Edge Hardcore band Up Front.
Our very own Nate Bean’s new joint!
The UK has really stepped up on the metallic hardcore front in 2015. Repentance, Renounced and Breaking Point all dropped big albums whilst Digress, Venom Prison and Day Of Rights all emerged with savage demos. You can add Severed to that list. They just appeared out of nowhere with a venomous three track demo entitled ‘Malice’ that draws heavy influence from late 90’s bands like Fear Tomorrow, Buried Alive, early Hatebreed, All Out War and Ringworm.
