Rotting Out

Lots of bands call Los Angeles their home, but few truly represent the city like ROTTING OUT. With members hailing from some of the more notorious parts of the storied streets everyone thinks of when they hear "LA," it's no wonder their music expresses that grit so rarely captured this perfectly. Raised on the sounds of local heroes Suicidal Tendencies and Pennywise, yet fully indebted to the thriving Southern California hardcore scene, ROTTING OUT have continually created some of the most energetic and captivating punk / hardcore being played today.

Extinction of Mankind

Extinction of Mankind (also referred to as EOM) is a British crust punk band.  Since their inception in 1992, EOM has recorded split albums and toured with some of the premier crust punk acts of the past two decades, including DOOM, Phobia, Misery, Skit Sytem, and Wolfbrigade.  Various obstacles have kept the group from extensive song writing or performing in the past several years, however in 2013 EOM announced that they were working on a new LP.
