I came across Dead Man browsing through an awesome youtube channel called Graveyard Lust. If you haven't checked it out, definitely do so.
On to the album. Dead Man are from Oakland California. "The All Too Well Known" is 4 tracks of grim, d-beating, punk/metal madness. This is some raw shit. Not recorded with a 1-track recorder raw, but pure evil aggression raw. It plays like a violent live performance, so I can only imagine what their rituals(that's concerts, guys) are like in person. Very eager to hear more from Dead Man. Here's a link to their bandcamp where you can download the album and purchase the cassette.
UPDATE: They apparently broke up 12/31/2013. RIP

Texas is crushing it right now. A ton of my 2013 faves hail from The Lone Star State such as Power Trip, Hatred Surge, War Master, and Mammoth Grinder. Dallas rippers ENDTIMES perpetrate an unstoppable barrage of metallic hardcore with grooves for dayzzz. You can hear traces of their texas brethren in their sound, but Descension also brings stuff like Sepultura, Integrity, even some early In Flames to mind. That being said, just click below and you can hear for yourself. A name your price download is also available.

For those of you don't know, the bulk of Integrity's releases are available directly from the band at no cost to the listener. I guess it's a nice fuck you to Tony Victory, plus they get their due from fanboys like me that have like 20 Integrity t-shirts.
This shit is absolutely essential. Integrity Seamlessly blend the fury of oldschool hardcore with the grim concepts and fast-paced riffing that are more akin to death metal and thrash metal. The history of this band is long and strange, so a write-up on that is pretty much out of the question.
Most of the crucial efforts are represented here. There's also some free Pale Creation, Rot In Hell, and Blind To Faith downloads.
