The Worcester, Massachusetts, metal upstarts—who guitarist Rayne C. Purcell describes as being purveyors of “death metal with a grind aesthetic”—are being smart about their career: They’re refining their songwriting, networking with like-minded bands and focusing on their live show. “Music, and more specifically extreme metal, gave me a lot of enjoyment and got me through a lot of stuff,” Purcell says. “There’s just an itch we have to make brutal music that makes people want to kick nuns. But it also feels good to give back to the metal community.”
