The Philly hardcore band 9 Of Swords introduced BEYOND THE SWORDS, their first album in six years, by sharing its incendiary opener “WITH HELP.” Immediately they’re again with the album’s second observe, an equally livid two-minute stomper known as “THE PAVEMENT.” The track’s crushing power-chord riffage and rapid-fire drum motion edge up towards crossover thrash, but it surely’s in the end so chunky and heavy in a manner that scans as simple hardcore aggression. Spend a blistering, bludgeoning two minutes with it beneath.

BEYOND THE SWORDS is out 6/3 on Quiet 12 months.
