The Skinny: While blackened thrash band Dismemberment may not be as famous as fellow Ohio metallers Skeletonwitch, they may soon give that band a run for their money if Denied Salvation is any indication. Formed in 2010, Dismemberment play a relentless blackened thrash attack that has won them accolades from both metal fans and publications across North America.

Originally released in 2012, Denied Salvation is a blistering 23 minutes of thrash that will have you snapping your neck and banging your head. The band will be entering the studio in November to record their full-length which will be mixed by Joel Grind of Toxic Holacaust fame. Check out Denied Salvation and hear for yourself the next great metal band to emerge from Ohio!
