Colonial Wound- "Degradation" New EP Available April 16 via New Morality Zine!

Colonial Wound's goal from the start was to create driving, aggressive and noisy music - that is exactly what they have accomplished on their newest, uncompromising 3 song EP, "Degradation". "Degradation" will surely call to mind the band's wide ranging sonic influences with everything from Unsane to Deadguy and Botch.

2021 EP, Degradation is a clear example of the band's ability to channel both heavy and aggressive. The songs showcase a unique drumming style that oscillates between heavy and driving to fast within the span of a second. The sheer force of the drums fit perfectly into place with open, rumbling bass that continues to carry each song along opening up opportunities for a confrontationally clear and poignant vocal delivery. The aggression of the rhythm section is sustained by the surge of loud and powerful guitars adding even more dynamics through their razor sharp melodies heard throughout. Degradation thematically points to the fact that everything works towards its own end, but we can only hope that end is far from now for Colonial Wound.
