Cerce - Stresscase - 2013

Cerce was a hardcore punk from Boston Massachusets. This split with Stresscase was their fifth and final release. They play a screamo inflected brand of hardcore, this split emphasizes the stomping hardcore more than the frantic screamo of previous releases. Songs like Blossom and Damaged Goods ride their rock solid riffs into the grind underneath an increasingly desperate screamer.

Stresscase is a four piece hardcore punk band from Los Angeles. The split with Cerce is their second release. They play a thrashy brand of hardcore that isn't afraid of tossing everything to the wind on strength of a powerful riff and a strong shouter. Lonely Leach and Shallow Grasp will beat the crap out of you and leave your body in the bottom of the pit.
