Meek is Murder: Was


Since its formation in 2009, Meek Is Murder has proven itself to be one of the leaders of Brooklyn's heavy scene, with a maxed-out, in-the-red approach that informs its music, its live performance, and its business model.

Recorded and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails) and mastered by Alan Douches (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tombs), Was is the most powerful distillation of the Meek Is Murder sound yet recorded. MetalSucks calls the band "Brooklyn's most batshit insane extreme music act"; Noisey has described it as "Damaged-era Black Flag in a car crash with metallic hardcore merchants Botch." Was bursts with full-throttle D-beats and epic, free-falling riffs, bridging the short attention span grind of Pig Destroyer or Graf Orlock, with the soulful, end-of-the-world noise-core of Botch or Converge. Check out the video be glad you did, if you have never seen or heard them before. You'll be glad you spent the staggering one minute and 27 seconds!
