Having just finished touring alongside Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood and Revocation, RAMMING SPEED will hit the road once again tonight, this time with Valient Thorr and Gypsyhawk. Full details can be found below. Lauded as “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal” (Noisecreep), the band will also be hosting a series of shopping spree-style contests along the way at select record stores. Watch the over-the-top hilarious infomercial about the contests HERE for more details.

RAMMING SPEED’s Prosthetic debut Doomed To Destroy, Destined to Die — out June 25 — was described as an “aural feast” by Decibel, who described the band’s new music as “a pinch of D-beat, some grindcore and a little death metal.” Check out a lyric video for Grinding Dissent here, or stream the title track here. You can pre-order the album on a variety of options including CD, LP (including a mail-order exclusive clear haze/neon green variant) or cassette tape along with an exclusive t-shirt featuring the new album’s cover artwork at the Prosthetic web shop: http://www.indiemerch.com/prostheticrecords/band/ramming-speed

RAMMING SPEED Stream New Track, Reveal Album Info

Grinding Dissent is a track from RAMMING SPEED’s Kurt Ballou-tracked Prosthetic debut, Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die, due out June 25 on CD, LP, cassette and digital download.

The band commented on the track as follows:

Grinding Dissent is largely about America’s facade of righteousness and freedom. A government that is ‘for the people’ may or may not have originally been the goal, but in this day and age, it’s obvious that protest and free speech aren’t welcome. Our police departments have military-grade weapons turned on civilians to keep us quiet while politicians smile and shake hands behind closed doors. Musically. the song starts off with punishing D-beat and ends with Ferrari-sized, Piña Colada-chugging twin guitar riffage! Put this shit on 11, crack a beer and scream at the sun.”

Head to PROSTHETIC’s web store now to check out pre-order packages for Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die, which include a mail-order exclusive clear haze/neon green vinyl variant along with an exclusive t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt featuring the album’s artwork, featured above. The band is living up to their reputation as “one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal” (Noisecreep) on a tour with Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood and Revocation; they will continue to tour the US with Valient Thorr and Gypsyhawk throughout the rest of the summer.
