The Skinny: With their Prosthetic debut Doomed to Destroy, Destined To Die due out Tuesday, June 25th, Boston thrashers Ramming Speed have premiered a track from the new album, “Dead Flags,” along with more exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of their GodCity Studio recording sessions with Kurt Ballou (Skeletonwitch, Converge, Kvelertak). Check it out here!

Described as “a melting pot of reverberations… from punk, to D-beat, to thrash, to grind… to even a touch of NWOBHM” via The Age of Metal, Ramming Speed’s new album received 4 out of 5 “horns” from MetalSucks, who wrote that “more than once on Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die, you’ll swear it’s the second coming of Maiden.” You can pre-order the album on CD, LP (available on black vinyl or a mail-order exclusive neon green/clear haze variant) or audio cassette.
