Featuring new tracks by both Brain Cave and Knub this split showcases two of the best heavy post-hardcore bands going today.

This is the next edition in the ongoing Hex Records split 12' series pairing bands not necessarily directly part of the label, but that we find awesome nonetheless, and releasing it short-notice in exciting and creative packaging. This split has two of the most exciting new bands to emerge- Brain Cave and Knub- laying down gigantic slabs of rock housed in a screenprinted jacket with an Obi strip to keep it all together and fancy looking.

Brain Cave- hailing from Cleveland- have been exceptionally prolific in their relatively brief time together, releasing several singles as well as a killer full length. This continues their fierce pace of releases and more post-hardcore heaviness that shifts between melody and fuzzy riffs played as loud as possible with shouted vocals keeping them rooted in basements packed with sweaty kids and questionable odors. The trio blur the line between all-out aggression and a dedication to songcraft, melody, and riffs.

Knub are old heads in a new band currently sinking the city of Baltimore into the Chesapeake Bay as a result of the seismic riffs they're creating. They dropped a demo last year and I'm still recovering from it. They completely nail those enormous Helmet riffs worthy of 'Meantime' and then polish them with the seasoned production and catchy songwriting of 'Aftertaste'. Yes, a perfect world can exist. Add to that a singer with a set of pipes potentially lifted from a church organ and you get the huge sounds of Knub that makes you full-body handbang to the riffs and then curse them for how stupid catchy it all is. How can this dichotomy exist? Search beneath the flooding streets of Baltimore and you'll find out.
