Having sharpened their teeth with ‘The Sixth Day’ 7” EP as well as other minor self-releases and countless live shows, Desolated have finally arrived with their debut album ‘Verse of Judas’ on Holy Roar. For the many uninitiated, Desolated play a contradictory style of hardcore – downtuned, low and slow – yet urgent, antagonistic and violent. Concentrated yet expansive. Artistic and thoughtful, yet blunt, angry and despondent.
