Today, D-beat upstarts The Passing stream the entirety of their self-titled debut EP at CVLTNation.com. Out now via Caligari Records on cassette tape format, stream The Passing‘s The Passing in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from Los Angeles, The Passing formed back in the fall / winter of 2018 before the world took a shit on itself. Comprising the members Ian, Fox, Izzy, and Marvin, every member of The Passing is influenced by all types of hardcore, punk, D-beat, and metal, each generally stemming from the greater Scandinavian region. Thus, across the band’s The Passing debut will you hear a whole lot of classic Anti-Cimex, Black Uniforms, Wolfpack, Skitsystem, Mob-47, Disfear, and early Swedeath (as filtered through D-beat, or vice versa) but put through a punishingly metallic filter. As such, all lyrics are written by Ian, and are about death, the world being shit, and religions sucking.
Filth, fury, no more, but definitely no less: The Passing‘s opening seven-track salvo is sure to crush unbelievers firmly underfoot.
