Stoic Violence is a hardcore punk band from Long Beach, California. Chained is their new 12" EP, their fourth overall release. Vinyl is being released by Deranged Records and Video Disease Records and on cassette by Overdose Records. Stoic Violence plays a straight forward, stripped down brand of hardcore, relying on a simple groove and a singer who can spit pure venom to slam their points home. At their best on tracks like No Escape, Two Faced, Choke and Cut Down/Empty Inside Stoic Violence conjures a chaotic, ugly brand of hardcore punk garnering comparisons to bands like Brainkiller, Hoax, No Class, Altered Boys, Nomos, Sucked Dry & Pukeoid. If you're looking for some no frills hardcore Stoic Violence's Chained will serve well. Thanks to Manic Compression and Cut & Paste.
