Southwest Hardcore will release three-way split by Avalanche, Martyr's Tongue and Ablaze this summer. All of the bands are relatively new but they all rip. Avalanche features at least one dude from Empire Of Rats and delivers hard as nails hardcore that is straight up evil. Just listen to the Lockdown track below. Martyr's Tongue hails from Puerto Rico and plays metallic hardcore with a strong Holy Terror element and influences ranging from Integrity to Darkthrone to Tragedy. Ablaze represents Germany and you can catch them on the upcoming tour with No Zodiac which starts May 30th.
