Ramming Speed has long been one of metal's hardest-working (and hardest-partying) bands, whether they're criss-crossing Eastern Europe or getting weird in Oklahoma. They spend so much time on tour that it seems positively miraculous when they actually sit still long enough to record a new album, which is why their upcoming third LP, No Epitaphs, is such a treat. Any band that spends that much time playing live is going to be tight once they hit the studio, so when you add in Kurt Ballou and Ramming Speed's own thrashing, grinding, crusty metal onstaught, the result is bound to rule.
We've got an exclusive new track for you to wrap your earholes around, a crunchy, d-beaten breakneck banger called "Walls." Tune in below, and grab No Epitaphs from Prosthetic Records on September 4.
