Hereafter by Vamachara (Closed Casket Activities)

Vamachara is a supremely heavy hardcore collective based out of the Los Angeles area, and their latest EP will send extreme music fans into the stratosphere.  Hereafter is the name of their manifesto of sheer intensity, seething with a brutal sense of unbridled urgency.  Expect to encounter hardcore pits of sweat and agony when these entreaties are unleashed within a live setting.  Their debut for the almighty Closed Casket Activities compound, Vamachara is sure to leave an indelible impression within the pummeling confines of these six volatile selections.

The call to arms of Introit reveal at once what the listener is in for – sludgy, relentless and punishing to its very core.  A barrage of feedback and searing guitars launches our flight into the depths of Deliverance, an infinite hardcore anthem for the ages.  Beyond Reach churns and grinds into your psyche, raw yet thoroughly impassioned. 

V.O.L. commences with a blistering guitar assault and then devastates the senses with its unearthly sonic immensity.  Then Void arrives just in time, an ominous reprieve that haunts and captivates with its deceptively serene soundscapes, channeling a startling unease as the track unfolds.  Closing out our dynamic adventure into the Hereafter is the explosive Anticipated Demise, a fatal grand finale that will leave your heart pumping into overdrive and your ears blissfully bleeding profusely.

Fans of genre stalwarts such as All Out War and At The Gates will want to check into the brutal reveries Vamachara has to offer the world at large.  They’ve toured with the likes of The Acacia Strain and Twitching Tongues, and breathe new life into a genre that has been festering within the minds of hardcore fanatics since the 90’s.  Expect to hear a while lot more from the raging gospel of Vamachara; as judging by the chaos and fury contained within their Hereafter EP, these guys are ready to slam into the big leagues in nothing short of an epic way!
