Metallic hardcore band Excused Duty outta South Korea have just dropped their two-track summer promo. The band unapologetically is inspired by 90’s metallic hardcore expertly mixing edge metal with thrash metal. They cite the following barrage of bands as influences: Gates of Hopeless, State Craft, Reprisal, Arkangel, Sentence, xELEGYx, Drawing Last Breath, Heaven Shall Burn, UNDYING, Prayer For Cleansing, Slayer, Metallica.
According to the band who almost immediately received worldwide attention, “At first, we released some rehearsal demos which caught the attention of Wretched Records (from the UK). After releasing our debut EP (streaming below) two more labels got in touch with us Bound By Modern Age Records (EU) and Paper Wings Records (USA) and of course, we’re thrilled to have joined them. What has been cool is that once we joined those labels, our labelmates were all super supportive of us (promoting us, reviewing our music, physical releases, etc) so it was totally a stroke of luck that we got connected with people overseas!”
