July 13, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA based hardcore/thrash metal purveyors OBSCENE GESTURE featuring members of BODY COUNT, STRUNG OUT, and AGENT STEEL of have posted 3 new songs on their new official MySpace. ‘Bad Idea’, ‘I’m Sick’ and ‘Question’ come off the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Forever Obscene.’
First bursting onto the scene with 2006’s ‘Living In Profanity’ and touted as a “a ‘lovely’ stick of dynamite up conservative America’s ass!” by Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles magazine, OBSCENE GESTURE are a highly volatile combination of East Coast hardcore and West Coast thrash. “We’ve all grown up on stuff like Slayer, Agnostic Front, Exodus, Suicidal Tendencies, Crumsuckers, and Dark Angel,”, reflects frontman Guy Green. “And the way S.O.D. brought hardcore and metal together on ‘Speak English Or Die’ was very inspirational to us collectively so all that comes out in our music. This new record is probably a little bit more hardcore leaning compared to our debut – pure, unadulterated Obscene Gesture doing what we do best. We’re currently looking for a new label so hopefully we can get the album out before the end of the year.”
‘Forever Obscene’ was recorded with the help of Roy Z (HALFORD, DOWNSET), John Ewing (SLAYER, KORN), and Horacio Colmenares and mixed by guitarist/co-vocalist Vincent Dennis at In-Sinc Studios in Los Angeles, CA. OBSCENE GESTURE was originally conceived by vocalist Guy Green and original drummer Chuck Profus (AGENT STEEL), with bassist George Robb (AGENT STEEL, LSN, DETENTE), and guitarists Vincent Dennis (BODY COUNT, STEEL PROPHET) and Juan Garcia (AGENT STEEL, EVIL DEAD) joining the fold for ‘Living In Profanity.’ The band’s current line-up features Green, Dennis, Garcia along with new arrivals Chris Aiken (STRUNG OUT) on bass and Keith Stanley on drums, respectively.
