Who They Are: What grew out of a solo project from former Reatards drummer Ryan Rousseau has emerged as a force in psychedelic hardcore. With its disruptive wall of doomy riffs and snarled vocals, the Arizona five-piece has attracted fans through records – the most recent being Negative Feedback Resistor, reportedly recorded while the band was high on dab – and by their acid-fueled live shows, which they sometimes can't remember. "I thought I had frozen on the spot," Rousseau has recalled of one set. "Until someone came up to me and told me it was one of the best shows we'd ever played."
Why They're Great: Not only is the band making some of the contemporary hardcore scene's most powerful statements on their own, they're supporting the scene with their cassette label, Ascetic House.
Signature Anthem: "Chemical Reaction/Chemical Delight" starts as a slow churn before developing into the band's signature headlong charge.
