Loyal To The Grave: Rectitude

Published by Dan SW


Japanese heavy hardcore legends Loyal To The Grave have returned with a new record. 'Rectitude' is the first record from the band in 7 years, and is being put out on Triple B Records. The band was invited to join the roster by Triple B owner Sam, who was in Japan filling in on bass for Never Ending Game.

From the press release:

Tokyo based outfit Loyal To The Grave have been mainstays in the Japanese hardcore scene since 1998. Today, the band shares Rectitude on Triple B Records, their first EP in seven years. The 5 songs on their new EP exemplify the relentless, metallic sound the band has crafted over 14 releases. Serpentine riffs and crushingly heavy drums support the dynamic vocals, punctuated by stomp-worthy breakdowns that are equal parts creative and ferocious. Scott Vogel (Terror) lends vocals on “Remain Steadfast”, one of the most pulverizing songs on the EP and a masterclass in heavy hardcore songwriting.

Rectitude was recorded by Devu at DevuRecordingStudio and Gaku Taura. Mixing is by Taylor Young. Mastering is by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Physical copies are available from Triple B Records.
