Philadelphia-based metallic hardcore quintet Jesus Piece have issued a remix of their track "Punish" as re-envisioned by EDM artist Ashe Kilbourne. The remix can be streamed below. "Jesus Piece is always about bridging the gaps of all extreme music facets," the band says. "A lot that inspires our song writing rarely comes from other contemporary hardcore bands. We as a band are all over the spectrum as far as our music inspirations go. Lu has been a fan of gabber/hardcore techno since he was kid and we all respect and love electronic music, so it only makes sense for us to collab like this. Kilbourne is not only our friend, but one of the only real gabber techno producers coming out of the USA. We trusted her vision with maintaining the energy and rawness of our song. She destroyed it and created a new level of pain." Kilbourne offers, "I tried to carry what I love about Jesus Piece into an electronics setting: punishing, relentless, percussion-driven music that pushes you to the edge. To me, metal and hardcore and gabber and speedcore exist on the same spectrum of extreme music, and the fact JP fucks with speedcore makes me stan even harder."
