Today marks the official release of the new Ep by Dominican nationals by way of Chicago “La Armada”. The 7 song “Crisis” hosts a plethora of aggressive riffs back boned by Caribbean style percussion molded into a mix of punk,thrash and metal unlike anything out right now.
Vinyls were delayed by a week but we will ship presale tentatively next week. Order your copy at the profane store and listen to an exclusive album stream at new noise magazine:
I first met Jake through the old PE message board. We became better acquainted through correspondence and teamed up to start the CCCP. Jake is a cyclist and like me a coffee hound, for our purposes here he’s a fitness bike-fellow.
So Jake, how long have you been interested in physical fitness?
Hello good sir! As far as interested, it’s only been about five years. In my mid 30s, I realized that my body wasn’t going to just get awesome on it’s own and it was just going to deteriorate if I didn’t take a proactive stance.

Anarcho-punk is still alive and well. But this is no nostalgia trip down memory lane though, this is a more of a kick in the teeth at the state of the world today. I’m sure there is no need no introduce or say much about either band if your reading this on Profane Existence, as Anthrax have been back again for a while. And haven’t dulled or turned into some sort of housebroken mild older version. They still sound as menacing and political as ever.
Burnt Cross certainly own a few Conflict albums, as you can hear the influence throughout. And the spiralling riff in ‘Anathema (Wings Of Fear)’ is reminiscent of Rudimentary Peni. But in saying all that Burnt Cross hold their own ground and certainly hold great convictions. I also really like the new dual/back and forth vocal style happening. It is music like this that makes you get up off your knees and wreak havoc, but in a clever way.
