RAMMING SPEED Added to String of Dates w/ PHOBIA

May 23rd, 2012

Rock ‘n roll metal punks RAMMING SPEED are the living, breathing, beer-swilling personification of the ol’ chestnut “no rest for the wicked.” Fresh off an East Coast trek with REVOCATION and CANNABIS CORPSE, this raging quartet have been added as direct support to PHOBIA on four of their upcoming dates with Strong Intention. They’ll be tearing up a handful of Northeastern clubs with the grind gods, and plan to debut some new tunes off their brand-new just-recorded album Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die.

These Boston bruisers have just completed a 9 day stint at Salem, MA’s Godcity studio with legendary heavy music engineer Kurt Ballou (Disfear, Back Breath, Converge, Kvelertak) and the results are 13 tracks of pure death-thrash crust-grinding mayhem. The ‘Speed’s long awaited sophomore full length is three years in the making, and showcases the band’s efforts at refining their amalgam of d-beat hardcore, thrash, classic rock and grind. The new riffs are both memorable and punishing, offering heaps of dual guitar harmonies and solos alongside furious blasting and enraged vocals.

Besides being the first ‘Speed recording to feature the band’s current line up, the new album also offers guest vocals from Nate Newton (CONVERGE, DOOMRIDERS) and, In an interesting experiment, a short synth contribution from Ben Teeter (ex-USX, current TASHA-YAR), who the band met through his connection with Oakland heshers and ‘Speed tour buddies SAVIOURS.

RAMMING SPEED Announce US Winter Tour with SAVIOURS

November 17th, 2011

Boston’s gnarliest crusty crossover maniacs, RAMMING SPEED, will be hitting the road hard this winter on a co-headlining run with longtime pals SAVIOURS, followed by a few weeks of headlining dates. The whole shebang kicks off in New York City on November 30th, and runs throughout the entire country – from sea to shining sea – before ending up in the band’s Allston, MA stomping grounds.

RAMMING SPEED’s most recent release, a split 12″ with legendary metalpunks A.N.S., is now in its second repress (on wicked green wax!) on Tankcrimes.

“This is a great split—two rad bands that play punk tinged thrash metal that know how to be serious, but don’t take themselves too seriously. Fucking awesome” – Maximum Rock’n’Roll.
