Los Angeles-based TERROR needs no introduction. With six full-length albums and a plethora of splits and EPs released through such labels as Trustkill, Victory, Reaper, Century Media, and more since their 2002 inception, and having toured virtually the entire planet, the band is undeniably one of the leading acts in the current worldwide hardcore scene. The Extermination Vol. 3 leads off with TERROR's brutalizing "Other Worlds," which surges with the monolithic metallic fury the band is notorious for, and sees lead vocalist Scott Vogel joined for a brief guest vocal spot by Mad Joe Black from WISDOM IN CHAINS.
Leeds, UK-based HIGHER POWER is a young act that is rapidly becoming a household name to fans around the world. Their energetic output has been captured on a solid line of EPs since their very recent 2015 inception, their debut LP coming together for release in 2017. The band has toured the US with Angel Du$t, has endured several tours of Europe, and more. Boasting a groove-heavy NYHC vibe and a standout vocal style, the band's "World Gone Mad" appears on The Extermination Vol. 3.
The Extermination Vol. 3 will see release through Flatspot Records on 12" vinyl LP and digital platforms, as well as a limited cassette run on November 11th, 2016. Alongside the exclusive lead premieres from the comp, preorders have gone live. Check out the options at flatspotrecords.com.
