Disconnect by Deathbreaker is in the album spotlight for July. Facedown Records is proud to introduce Deathbreaker, a powerful four piece hailing from Olympia, Washington. While the quality of artists on Facedown Records has only improved over the years, Deathbreaker immediately demands attention as one of the label's best new bands in recent memory with a no-holds-barred hardcore/post-hardcore sound that is both refreshingly simple and tons of fun.
Deathbreaker lean into post-harcore in their debut album Disconnect, creating breathing room in the album by branching out into more expressive territory. Disconnect was recorded with Matt Bayles at Red Room Studios (Norma Jean, Minus the Bear, Caspian, Mastadon) and carries the mark of a vintage aggressive album with staying power.
Ashland Messiah by Exhortation is in the indie spotlight for July. Ashland Messiah is about man's inherent ability to destroy himself. It's about demagogues, false prophets, and the plights that hinder the progression of mankind. In the album, the lyrics tackle issues such as climate change, religious extremism, and the futility of war. However, despite this very nihilistic tone, there lays a message that we can overcome the tribulations we as a species face and become something greater. While these Texans certainly flaunt the influence of bands like Warbringer and Havok they also bring something that is distinctly their own to the table making for some high powered fun.
