Speaking of Straight Ed McKirdy, the Livewire Records head honcho makes his triumphant return to the stage this year as the singer/frontman for Skull Crusher, a brutal new band from the brutal land of New York City. Drummer Brian "Gordo" Jordan, also of the great Double Cross webzine, just fucking kills it on the kit as well. Their crushing debut Blinded By Illusion, a Livewire/Reflections Records joint release, will be released shortly. For now though, you can listen to a couple of songs from it on their Myspace page.

The last word I would ever use to describe this is "brutal"

i'd agree that 'brutal' is a strtch in the grand scheme of musical description, but it is pretty 'crushing' hardcore with good mosh parts. def seem like a solid band to kick off the new year with.

this is fucking terrible. i had a hard time deciding whether or not it was a joke band. sounds like someone's uncle got drunk and started playing with a whammy bar.
