Arms Race "New Wave Of British Hardcore"

Arms Race unleashes their debut album after a well-received, six-track demo in 2013 and a six-track 7" EP in 2014 on Quality Control HQ and Painkiller. Arms Race arrived on the scene fully formed with their powerful and gnarly UK-meets-USA hardcore: their signature sound of a vocalist chewing on glass is backed by one of the most solid rhythm sections in HC these days, and the guitar work adds a metallic element making the whole sound gigantic while keeping the ugliness and aggression to the max. "NWOBHC" is a statement of no-frills hardcore that is not scared to reach out to different corners of the punk and metal world.
