Dead End America - Crush The Machine

Hardcore can be many things to many people. Dead End America is a thriller because of both its political message, but also the way that it allows a group of old friends to get over the loss of a brother. I'm talking of course about our friend, Steve Hanford, the Slayer Hippy. He fortunately was able to get drums down for this masterful record before he passed. In addition to Steve Hanford, Crush The Machine features Tony Avila (World Of Lies, Why Won't You Die, Aborted Cop, Here's Your Warning) joined by lead guitarist Ian Watts (Ape Machine, Minmae) and bassist/vocalist Nick "Rex Everything" Oliveri (Mondo Generator, The Dwarves, ex-Kyuss, ex-Queens Of The Stone Age), with additional lyrics and vocals from Mike IX Williams (EyeHateGod, Corrections House, Arson Anthem, Outlaw Order) and Blaine Cook (The Acc├╝sed A.D., The Fartz, Toe Tag). Quite the lineup! 

What this record comes across as though is just a group of friends having fun as they protest a stupid and oppressive administration. In an era where we fear that our president won't cede power and every day somehow becomes more stressful than the last, Dead End America are flipping the bird to the world and reminding us of the raw power of punk rock. I think many of us are having a hard time with the ongoing COVID crisis, and this album is an incredibly cathartic listen. It's raw anger and energy incarnate. It's an honor to get to sink your teeth into the raw power and demented beauty of what they continue to bring to the fore here. 

Crush The Machine is a veritable tour de force. It showcases so many crucial aspects of these musicians work and sees them all come together in the name of some good old fashioned hardcore. New ground isn't broken here, but this is a helluva fun record. The raw chaos and energy that the band push here is eager and exciting. Few acts can continually hit the nail on the head, even if it's on a short EP. As a general rule though, this record is a banger that will have you moshing around your room, wondering when you might be able to properly mosh again.

  5. Good day friends. The truth is that GREAT MOTHER IS REAL AND UNIQUELY POWERFUL. Contact the Great Mother today and she will help you. when my husband left me for another woman, i thought that was the end but i contacted many spell casters but there was no positive responses and everything seemed not to be working and i was losing my mind until my cousin told me about the GREAT MOTHER who also helped her to bring back her man and also helped her to cure her herpes disease. I gave it a try and i contacted the Great Mother on her Website and i saw various testimonies about her on her good works how she has helped a lot of people. I explained my problems to her. she laughed and told me that, everything will be okay again and that she will help me bring back my man in 3 days time. I actually thought that it was a joke but since i had no other options, i gave it a try and i did what she instructed me do and to my greatest surprise, my man came back to me begging in 3 days time just as she told me. Contact the Great Mother now on her website:   https://Ourgreatmother1.blogspot.com   and you can also reach her on her email: Greatmotherofsolutiontemple1@gmail.com  or you can equally contact her on her whatsapp number: +17025514367
