Official press release: The hardcore supergroup, Vehement Serenade, will release their debut s/t 7" on September 25, 2012 via Fast Break Records. The two tracks, "Refuse The Lie" and "Scratched Off The Map" will showcase the bands dynamic and relentless vision of metal meets post hardcore. Both tracks are brutal to say the least. The B-side, "Scratched Off The Map," will be limited to this release only. Led by heavy weight veterans Karl Buechner of (Earth Crisis, Freya), Mike Couls (Skarhead, Cro-Mags, Agents of Man), Jamin Hunt (Sworn Enemy, Hatework), Eddie Ortiez (Sub-Zero, Cattle Press, Candiria) and Pauly Antignani (Sworn Enemy), V.S. has cultivated and honed a style that embraces each member's experience and history. V.S. unites their strengths and combines their specialized knowledge into a sound that ignites both passion and fury. The tracks were recorded and produced by Joey Z of Life Of Agony at Method of Groove studios in Brooklyn, NY. The band plans to spend the rest of the year appearing at limited engagements including East Coast Tsunami Fest on September 29th where fans can pick up a limited color version of the release. V.S. will also be finishing their debut full length this fall for a spring release. You can hear track samples below:

this bands name means "a passionate piece of music played in the open air, typically by a man at night under the window of his lover."


blankzzz 8/29/2012 1:06:40 PM

So a fruit eater, gook, white trash guy, whop and sage walk into a bar, the fruit eater orders a shirley temple, the gook orders a sake bomb, the white trash guy is already drunk and the whop starts fist pumping. The sage then pulls out a knife rips of a mask and its not a sage its Harley Flannagan.....revenge is sweet!


agent_friday 8/29/2012 3:20:52 PM

Veteran hardcore heavyweights play music 15 year old High School freshman can create and execute better.


anonymous 8/29/2012 4:01:49 PM

anonymous 8/29/2012 5:02:20 PM

anonymous 8/29/2012 5:28:48 PM

holy fck you kids have no respect. without bands like earth crisis you gaygy scene bands wouldn't exist. Ya'll need to learn some respect. Know what you're talking bout before you talk shit. Its great to hear that voice again. I love earth crisis. fck you posers you wouldn't know metal if dime bag came back from the dead and smacked you in the head with a bottle of jack


anonymous 8/29/2012 7:18:03 PM

anonymous 8/29/2012 7:36:01 PM

How old is Karl now? Hardcore will never die but you will.


sandpaperseatbelts 8/29/2012 9:08:06 PM

anonymous 8/29/2012 9:37:38 PM

"Vehement Serenade"? Wow. Horrible name, sounds like East European goth metal with a midget keyboard player


anonymous 8/29/2012 10:23:36 PM

Ew y'all


ShaolinLambKiller 8/30/2012 3:07:49 AM

Lol at hardcore has officially jumped the shark. You listen to Iwrestledabearonce, no one even takes your trolling seriously since that came out.


anonymous 8/30/2012 10:57:39 AM

Sounds like a high school band. Talentless fcks still talentless.


anonymous 8/31/2012 5:29:12 PM

lol @ no one knowing who dime bag was. I got a pic of us two in my prom suit hung high above my bed. There should be a poll set up to verify.


anonymous 7/26/2019 4:24:22 PM

Far better & more aggressive than all the derivative/breakdown/ baseball hat-on-sideways bandana tough guy midtempo trash considered to be hardcore these days. Actually has people in the band who can play their instruments too, good shit.
