Published Oct 03, 2016Montreal hardcore unit Hashed Out are set to unleash a new album titled Cosmic Pessimism, but before its official release, you can hear the whole thing right here at Exclaim!
The band make no attempt to hide the fact that "the cool punks don't like 'em," "the metalheads think they don't have enough solos," "hardcore kids can't dance to it," "crusties don't like their backpatches" and "stoners think they lack the groove." But rather than spreading their sound thin to meet all of these ridiculous demands, Hashed Out have opted instead to give no fucks about pleasing other people.
Blending elements of hardcore, metal, grindcore and power violence to their own satisfaction, Cosmic Pessimism celebrates the hopelessness of the world through songs that are equal parts dark, heavy and vicious.
The latest LP was recorded with producer Ian Blurton and will crash land on October 7 through L'Oeil Du Tigre. You can get acquainted with the punishing new album first, though, by giving it an advanced stream in the player below.
