Upon its initial release Decibel Magazine praised Draw Back A Stump calling it “grind with elements of classic U.K. crust, Swedish D-beat and American hardcore, plus just enough experimentation to create the aural equivalent of a watch throwing springs and gears in every direction while keeping perfect time,” with Metal-Army America adding “Draw Back A Stump has all the bells and whistles of old-school hardcore and the best of modern sludgey-grind” and Grind To Death boasted the record is “like no other grind I have heard…borrowing from the crisp clean metal stylings and structures merged with the rhythmical pogo stick bouncings of punk to make its own blend of music.”
Stay tuned for more info on the release of Draw Back A Stump, PRIMATE live confrontations and more through the coming months. Preorders for the album are available now VIA RELAPSE.
