Call ’em hardcore punk, thrash metal or grindcore—Dead Cross DGAF. The supergroup, whose members include Mike Patton and ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo, just released a self-titled EP that proves genres don’t really matter.
The surprise four-tracker comprises two new tracks in “Skin of a Redneck” and “My Perfect Prisoner,” alongside two remixes of singles from Dead Cross’ 2017 debut. So, yep, there are even electronic elements mixed in with the punky, aggressive sounds.
“I think part of Dead Cross’ motives are to bridge gaps between useless genres and definitions,” the band’s bassist Justin Pearson said. “Part also might be to just burn that shit down. It’s in our collective DNA.”
The quartet also shared a video for “My Perfect Prisoner,” which you can check out below the full EP:
