Based out of the music holy ground of Manchester (Joy Division, Smiths, Stone Roses, Oasis), Going Off is a British hardcore band that originally appeared on No Echo back in the beginning of this year via their eponymous demo.
The quintet keeps things brutal, groove-driven, and short, something they showcase perfectly on their aptly titled debut EP, Destroy. The new 12-track onslaught lasts a mere 11 minutes, but that's all the boys need to get their point across:
"Each track lyrically relates to various different forms of self-destruction, both physically and mentally — from PTSD, self-starvation, addiction, and even ingesting acid," said the band via email.
Destroy was recorded at Studio 6 near Swindon, UK, a studio renowned for working with the likes of Desolated, Malevolence, and many more notable names in the UKHC scene.
