The official lyric video for the song "Grinding Dissent" from Boston thrashers RAMMING SPEED can be seen below. The track comes off the band's Prosthetic Records debut, "Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die", which will be released in North America on June 25. The CD was recorded with Kurt Ballou (HIGH ON FIRE, CONVERGE, KVELERTAK) at GodCity Studio.
Comments RAMMING SPEED: "'Grinding Dissent' is largely about America's facade of righteousness and freedom. A government that is 'for the people' may or may not have originally been the goal, but in this day and age, it's obvious that protest and free speech aren't welcome. Our police departments have military-grade weapons turned on civilians to keep us quiet while politicians smile and shake hands behind closed doors. Musically. the song starts off with punishing D-beat and ends with Ferrari-sized, Piña Colada-chugging twin guitar riffage! Put this shit on 11, crack a beer and scream at the sun."
