elduderino86 The only words that come to mind when I hear this isnbad ass. Anytime any of my friends ask me about a bad ass band to check out I show them this. I first heard song Uncivilized on YouTube about two minutes in I preordered the red Vinyl and will hopefully be ordering a shirt soon and hopefully when you guys tour you’ll be in Detroit or the Detroit area. Stay metal and Hails and Horns Favorite track: Fuck Off and Die.

SINOMITE It's a good sign when the preview track for a new record is a face-melter. Apologies for keeping this brief; my face has melted.

about

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present POUNDER's highly anticipated debut album, Uncivilized, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

POUNDER specialize in dealing out classic heavy metal tunes, expertly crafted and executed, drawing from their NWOBHM influences with hints of early '80s speed metal, Sunset Strip flash, and AOR accessibility. The band was borne out of the members' long-standing love for classic NWOBHM and traditional metal in general. After kicking around in the backburner of main songwriter Matt Harvey's (of Exhumed, Gruesome, and Expulsion) imagination for a few years, he and bassist Alejandro Corredor (Nausea LA, live bassist for Vallenfyre) met guitarist Tom Draper (Carcass, ex-Angel Witch, Crowning Glory), an Englishman relocated to California, and they quickly bonded over their love of classic metal and hard rock.

It didn't take long for things to start coalescing for POUNDER once Harvey decided to take over vocal duties himself, after searching for a singer without any luck. In February 2017, the trio (with the aid of North Carolina-based session drummer Carlos Donegean) entered Trench studios in Corona, California to record seven songs, four of which became their Heavy Metal Disaster demo. The other three songs featured on their Faster Than Fire EP for Shadow Kingdom, which also included their live cover of the Angel Witch classic "Sweet Danger." With that EP serving as a teaser for their debut album for HELLS HEADBANGERS, Uncivilized, the time has at last arrived for POUNDER to truly spread their wings of metal.

Indeed, POUNDER truly spread their wings here, unloading an arsenal of many-metalled majesty. Any way you cut it, Uncivilized is an electric, undeniably timeless cross-section of POUNDER's iron-clad aesthetic, underlining in no uncertain terms just what's so invigorating and life-affirming about the art of HEAVY METAL. From high-octane speed metal cruisers to moody, night-walking stompers to even haunting power-ballads like "Long Time No Love" and "Answer the Call," Uncivilized delivers the goods, track after track, in a tight, press-repeat 42 minutes. And it's wrapped in a production job that's on the right side of clean 'n' clear, wholly allowing the grit to glisten and the flash to fly. POUNDER may be Uncivilized, but that doesn't mean they can't put together a professional product.

Trends may come and go, but only true metal endures. POUNDER are as unyielding as the name, so prepared to get Uncivilized!
