Medic

Greetings and Amputations

McCarthyism

Dirty, filthy, sweaty and violent … this is Medic. Medic is a band made up of remnants of Process is Dead, DeNada and Super Chinchilla Rescue Mission. Greetings and Amputations is their first release.

While only 10 minutes long, the four songs on this release are awesome! If you like your metal-core with a lot of power, aggression and dissonance, then this will be right up your grimy alley. The guitars steal the show. Their scathing tone, coupled with the ringy yet warm bass, grate and scrape with ferocity. The songs build with relentless force, and culminate in devastating explosions of power. These guys are absolutely fantastic. 100% recommended!
