Hailing from Northwest Indiana, Penitentiary consists of members from Blood In Blood Out, Blackwater, Choking on Reality, To Tha Pavement, & Shut the Fuck Up. Delivering their form of Metallic Hardcore riffs, Beatdown with a hint of trash. This band is straight to the point and doesn't skip a beat. Personally, such a huge fan of the diversity of vocals this band has in all their songs. Their heavy breakdowns will wanna make you beat your own fucking ass. They have the perfect amount of Metallic riffs, guitar solos and pitch harmonics. The lyrics tell a story a lot of people can relate too. They have chants/gang vocals that will throw you back. Their opening track "Hate Combined" has to be one of the best opening tracks I have heard on any album out in 2018, so far. You can Pre-Order 'RECIDIVIST' NOW! Full Length due out August 10th via UpState Records! You can check out their single 'PIECE OF MIND' below!
