Headsplit Records serves up fresh death metal with Extraneous

Headsplit Records serves up fresh death metal with Extraneous

Portland is getting a new death metal band and tonight, they'll be celebrated with a well-backed release show.

Coming out on Portland's extreme underground metal label Headsplit Records, Extraneous are dropping their demo cassette tonight. What started as some shreddy rough cuts from guitarist/vocalist Alex Stanley in late summer of last year has flourished into a fully formed lineup, their expertise quickly noticed. A short shuffle through Stanley's YouTube profile, where Extraneous' few tracks live for now, but provide enough insight into the band's capacity for gruesome sounds.

Pick up a copy of Extraneous' demo tonight at the High Water Mark, where there's also the chance to catch fellow Headsplit act Blood Freak and other new death metal act Septic Tank. This bill is guaranteed to split some heads... or at least, some ears.
