Violent Life Violent Death from Charlotte, NC broke out on the scene in mid-2016 from the ashes of Deception of A Ghost and A Stained Glass Romance, offering a blend of hardcore and metal, viciously summoning influences reminiscent of Zao, with an in-your-face, chaotic, Every Time I Die-like edge. The band released V-EP (2016) that Lambgoat dubbed “a formidable debut,” and Come, Heavy Breath (2018) that MetalSucks describes as “a Molotov cocktail of metallic hardcore.”
Two EPs followed: Sadness Rains (2019) and The Color of Bone (2020).
The title track from Sadness Rains has racked up just under 1,000,000 plays on Spotify. The Color Of Bone demonstrated a continued evolution of the band as they further hone their craft, while still maintaining their unique sound. The Color Of Bone offered up heavy, vicious, metallic hardcore for lovers of Zao, Ringworm, and that h8000 sound.
