It seems like Toyota’s Scion Audio/Visual, otherwise known as Scion A/V, has been marketing itself to a younger generation of music-literate Americans for years now, featuring special releases by burgeoning musicians.
The newest band featured by Scion A/V? Local grindcore trio Magrudergrind. Perhaps Scion isn’t exactly the kind of name a metal musician would like to be associated with, as the Austerity Program frontman Justin Foley made clear in an op-ed for MetalSucks recently. But, as a choice to kick off a series of metal releases, you can’t go wrong with Magrudergrind.
The group’s EP, Crusher (a tribute to Earache Records’ 1989 Grindcrusher compilation), is now available, and you can stream all six songs for free right now. Expect lots of bone-shattering noise and, um, rapping.
