Pioneers of New York hardcore, Cro-Mags threw the genre’s fast-paced thrash riffs and chaotic drumming into a heavy metal template to produce thrash tunes that are as as badass as they sounds. With Cro-Mags, melodic punk meets machine gun-paced riffing to create songs that sound as though the instruments are at war. Although last year Harley Flanagan was arrested for stabbing and biting a couple dudes backstage at Webster Hall, we're hoping this year the tough, almost-martial attitude of the rockers restricts itself to an intense show onstage.
