If there were ever a band since Black Flag to stand as tall and as cult-worshipped, it’s these unbridled punk-metal mavens—the true spiritual kinsman to the Bars! Dark and ominous as heck, heavy as fug, and always forward thinking. Allegedly a new one should drop later this year. Coliseum say they sound like “skeletons riding motorcycles”—true enough. Especially if said dead bikers were, uh, boned up on Discharge and Mötorhead. With robo-electro-grindcore freakazoid trio Genghis Tron, Ceremony, Rise and Fall, and Pulling Teeth.
