The latest ragin’ persuasion from St. Louis-based awesome party squad, CROSS EXAMINATION, broke out onto the streets this week in the form of Dawn Of The Dude, the EP jacked on some of the band’s most insane circle pit fuel yet.
Their latest high-octane thrash/hardcore output closing a six-year gap between releases, CROSS EXAMINATION comes out flailing and impaling with the Dawn Of The Dude EP, its seven new tracks barely hitting the thirteen-minute mark and packing more balls and bong-rips than virtually any comparable contemporary groups. Your brains will simply leak from your blown-open ear canals as you bang your head’s filler into fluid to the perpetually rabid beats, the material featuring even more rasping, schizoid/hyper vocals and a pummeling crusty edge.
As Chicago-based Organized Crime Records this week releases Dawn Of The Dude, Decibel Magazine is now hosting an exclusive stream of the entire brain-bashing EP alongside a conversation with Cross Exam Dan on the band’s current status, a discussion (with visual proof) of why the band self proclaims “We are bad at vans,” and more.
Swing by The Deciblog and get your head wrecked by the Dawn Of The Dude at THIS LOCATION.
