– TGR’s first extended player and only release since their debut 7-inch in 2014 – is a major-league leap for the band. Merging thuggish rock in the septic vein of bands like Unsane, Whores and Helmet with a greasy, bluesy Southern groove, this ax-grinding recording is a big, misanthropic beast and easily the nastiest to come out of the city this year. To make the release event a bruiser for the books, the band of honor has called on a strong supporting gang of homegrown muscle that notably includes stars like doom-sludge lords Hollow Leg and blistering metal punks Moat Cobra. It’s gonna get scuzzy.

Orlando noise-rock band the Glorious Rebellion keeps the heat on the street with fairly regular area performances, often appearing alongside heavy-hitting touring names like KEN Mode, Holly Hunt, Black Tusk, Black Cobra and Jucifer. Even with all that, though, little prepared us for the bare-knuckle impact of their raging new record.
