Xibalba/Suburban Scum split LP

Who:  Xibalba and Suburban Scum

What:  Split LP from two of America's up-and-coming metalcore/deathcore/slamcore/whatever bands. Released on Closed Casket Activities.

When:  June 2014

Where:  Pomona, CA and North New Jersey respectively

Why:   Suburban Scum keeps the Dirty Jersey metalcore tradition alive. Xibalba is simply the best band going right now.

[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]
