Legendary Rhode Island hardcore punk band and activists Dropdead have released a ten-song, digital compilation of unreleased demos via the Armageddon Label, and offshoot of the Armageddon Records shops in New England. The sales from the release will go to fund a new van after theirs was stolen in Montreal June first. The band continues to work on new music for release at a future date, as frontman Bob Otis recovers slowly from his 2017 motorcycle accident. The band recently got off tour (when their van was stolen), performed at Maryland Deathfest this year and has booked other shows this year, such as the legendary Obscene Extreme Festival next month. Please support this band any way you can! Continue reading

From Obscene Extreme’s Facebook Announcement:
Obscene Extreme Festival goes Canada!!!
Alright freaks, mark your calendars for August 20-23, as the Obscene Extreme World Tour will be stopping by Montreal, Quebec for a weekend of extreme music madness!
Get your goregrind banana suit ready, put on your gasmask or your most comfortable stagediving costume and get psyched for a wide selection of underground acts. The first Canadian edition of this DIY party will bring the best of grindcore, crust, punk, death, thrash, hardcore, and everything in-between to the stage.
The Obscene Extreme Festival began in the Czech Republic in 1999, and over the past 16 years, more than 700 bands from all over the world have rocked its stage. The Obscene Extreme World Tour was born 2 years ago out of the desire to bring the carnage to extreme music fans worldwide. After Mexico, Indonesia, Australia, and Japan, we’re bringing the blasting madness of Obscene Extreme to Montreal, Canada. Get ready for a 4 day trip of fast, brutal, and destructive musical violence.
5 reasons the Obscene Extreme World Tour is going to blow your mind:
1. Truly underground.
Obscene Extreme is one of the few truly underground festivals to unite big, genre-defining bands, and small, cult bands.
Whatever you do or don’t do, believe or practice, you’re welcome at Obscene Extreme.
3. Fair ticket price.
No massive booking agent or energy drink mega-festival bullshit, Obscene Extreme is affordable for everyone.
4. No shitty rules, no shitty security.
Stage diving, stage invasions and more, all welcome. Obscene Extreme treats you like people and doesn’t stop you having fun.
5. Grindcore carnival.
Wear a gasmask, dress as a goregrind banana, Obscene Extreme is more than a festival – it’s a party!

Curby/Obscene, Obscene Extreme founder says :
Some of you can be surprised why we choose Canada for another American Obscene Extreme. We have been trying hard to find a good venue in the US for over a year. I was simply trying everything, asked my friends, asked the OEF friendly bands, everyone I know and almost every person mentioned Canada as the place very close to Europe.
Well, and of course when people mention Canada they always mention Montreal as the place with huge metal/punk/hardcore scene and simply a lovely city to visit! When bands used to come for rare gigs they would always go up there. It has been known to have concerts that come closest to being in Europe.
So another year, another country, another adventure!!!
I personally can’t wait to meet all the loyal American OEF fans and supporters face to face!
I want to say that we are very serious about this festival (as any other OE festival) and we’ll try to set up a solid line-up for the first volume and try to anchor here for some more crazy shows and years.
Be there or fuck off!!!
