Judge (featuring Neomatik) by Riodine

Fusing hip-hop and rock into a concoction that just tastes fantastic in our thirsty palates, Riodine brings us the legend of the unjust day when the truth subsequently came out on ‘Judge(feat. Neomatik).

Riodine is a Russian-American Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-born, Staten Island, New York-based indie rock solo artist.

Featuring members of Neomatik, Riodine brings a large ensemble to this rap giving this track a party feel. If you can imagine the Beastie Boys teaming up with Biz Markie, then you would have Judge.

Inner Turmoil – Grave Mistakes: Beatdown Moshing Hardcore Punk

This song is basically a big jumping fest with a bulky interlude during which it changes into a big moshing fest. Get psyched with this syringe of adrenaline!

Inner Turmoil elegantly describe the music they make as “music to punch your friends to” and we couldn’t agree more. With their song “Grave Mistakes” we can promise you that you’ll get clobbered over the head with brutal guitar riffs, fierce tempo changes, and a killer moshing end part. Their sound and songwriting doesn’t deviate that much from the standard hardcore punk/moshcore formula, but either way, this scene is not exactly infamous for the creative boundaries it’s been pushing in the last decade (at least). While this sound has remained stale for a long time now, it is the frantic live gigs and festivals that are keeping it alive and kicking. And judging by this song, catching Inner Turmoil onstage, you’re probably in for some bruises. I would love to consume this sonic beast live!

Drawing influences from the scene giants, such as Agnostic Front and Sick Of It All, Inner Turmoil are bound to make you jump around. All my hardcore kids, be sure to listen to Grave Mistakes here
