Let It Die - s/t 7"

Let It Die comes to us from the UK and play an ugly, gruesome style of hardcore that hits very hard in all the right places. 

There's a great use of upbeat rhythms and slow breakdowns here that are mixed together in just the right amounts to emphasize the power of each.  This has that darker hardcore sound infused with a bit of speed picking metal, though I can hear influences across the board from Tragedy to Converge to Trap Them. 

Lyrics stay abstract but seem to focus on social and political themes from religion to the judicial system.   This is some great stuff.

Have a listen here.
