EROSION (MEMBERS OF BAPTISTS, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) STREAM ‘MAXIMUM SUFFERING’ LP

The world might have heard of Erosion a little sooner if the members weren’t busy sharing duties in a handful of other projects. Guitarist Nick Yacyshyn, drummer Danny Marshall, and bassist Andrew Drury are more widely known for their work in Vancouver’s beloved hardcore veterans Baptists. Rick O’Dell was snagged from his bass duties with sludgy classic rockers Tobeatic and punk rippers Hard Feelings to join Erosion on second guitar while vocalist Jamie Hooper was recruited for the vitriol he unleashed with the triumphant metal export 3 Inches of Blood and the grimy punk band Congress. Given their pedigree, it’s no small wonder that their debut full-length, Maximum Suffering (out October 19 on Hydra Head) exudes the kind of ugliness that only comes from artists steeped in the art of musical ferocity.
