Gaza = Soilent Green + Today Is The Day + Eyehategod + Pushing Up Daisies

Probably unfairly lumped in with many of the metalcore bands coming out these days, Gaza are unique and don’t deserve such categorization. Elements of raging, pissed hardcore are evident, but with a very kick-ass mix of supremely heavy bottom-end bass and razor-sharp, buzzing guitars, with black-metal-sounding tortured screams.

Strange guitar harmonies and melodies hang out amidst all the ruckus. This very easily sounds like something from out of Birmingham back in the guitar-industrial/hardcore days.
