In Trenches

Born in 2008, In Trenches began sprouting from the ashen soil of I Killed the Prom Queen and Day of Contempt.
Yet far from an extension of past efforts, the time dormant has let their resolve fester into an entirely more intense creature, still grounded in heavy hardcore, but earthier, dirtier and spitting discordance.
Misshapen riffs twist as if trying to escape before being shattered into an abrasive breakdown, or a moment of ambient clarity.
