“…a punishing mix of grindcore and more traditional hardcore that takes influence from all across the past 30 years of heavy music but sounds new and fresh…” — BrooklynVegan
BrooklynVegan is currently streaming “The Last Nail” from Arizona grind collective WOUNDVAC. The track comes off the band’s punishing The Road Ahead EP, set to detonate September 13th via Corpse Flower Records.
Comments BrooklynVegan of the hymn, “It’s got whiplash-inducing grind, a slowed-down breakdown, and more, and the crisp production really helps seal the deal.”
Adds the band, “The theme of ‘The Last Nail’ is looking beyond your present experience in an effort to find peace in the mental chaos that comes with sentience. For better or for worse, feelings are fleeting and impermanent. It’s most introspective song on the EP.”

Forged in the sweltering heat of the Arizona sun in 2014, WOUNDVAC is an unrelenting grind machine. After five years of shows and a handful of west coast tours, the band has cemented their place in Phoenix’s burgeoning heavy music scene. Self-releasing two EP’s — 2016’s Disgraced Convert and 2017’s Infamy as well as a number of splits and last year’s highly praised debut Terrorizing The Swarm, WOUNDVAC are looking to broaden their scope with their latest effort The Road Ahead, set to drop this fall. Captured at Sound Signal Studios with Zack Rippy (Wristmeetrazor), mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Converge, Integrity, Obituary) with cover art by Bite Radius Designs (Misery Index, Napalm Death, Benighted), WOUNDVAC‘s uncompromising mix of grind, hardcore punk, and death metal is expertly executed on this new EP and is spotlight on why they are the proverbial breath of fresh air in the crowded scene.
