San Diego metalheads serve up some fury

In Music

Ozzfest lovers, look out for this one.

Kung Fu Records has revamped its catalog with the hardest band
they’ve signed to date: Underminded.

They formed in San Diego four years ago when their metal-based
hardcore style was unpopular at the time in their town. They soon
went on tour and received rave reviews. Shortly after, they
recorded a self-released EP, The Task Of the Modern Educator.

Produced by Sergio Chavez (Velvet Revolver, Limp Bizkit), their
full-length debut album, Hail Unamerican, hits stores on Sept.

This album is packed full of rhythmic guitar lines and raspy,
throat-hurting screams. Not to mention the hard-hitting drum solos
and double bass of their drummer, Joe Mullen. The fastest drum
rolls are found on ȁC;Bring On the Flood.ȁD;

The guitarist also shows his talents for melodic punk anthems in
ȁC;Burn the Metropolis.ȁD; This one shows Nick Martin can
sing real music when he wants to.

The band rocks as hard as Lamb of God or Atreyu, busting the
fastest drum parts and loudest vocals outside of South America. The
title track, ȁC;Hail Unamerican,ȁD; is undoubtedly the
best song on the album. However, all the tracks will blow you away
and cast a shadow of anger over you, bringing out the same
aggression Martin screams into your eardrums about politics and
everyday life.

Those who are interested in real hardcore music can see
Underminded play with the Vandals on Sept. 11 at the House Of Blues
in Anaheim.
