I'm honored to finally announce the recent additions to the DRQR family. They are the two unrelenting grind acts, Cognizant (DTX) / Bad Rites (France/AU). Their new cassette split is now for sale on the label store for $7. Limited to 100 copies; 50 CLEAR w/ GREY tint & SMOKY tint. Bad Rites cultivates a mind-melting style of grind that is well rooted and adheres to purist grip. Featuring members of Captain Cleanoff and Chiens. Like Robin Hood split the arrow, Cognizant come forward with their one-of-a-kind breed of dark, dissonant grind. In May, Cognizant played Maryland Deathfest and a sold-out show at the Brooklyn, NY's Saint Vitus Bar w/ Wormrot. These guys are hitting the road again, this fall, for some West coast dates w/ Antigama, Violent Opposition and Rottenness. This split is available to stream, for FREE, on their Bandcamp. Now quit stalling and go hear for yourself how these dudes are raising the bar for grindcore as we know it.
