The Skinny: Behold the debut EP of UltraMantis Black, the hardcore punk band created to spread the gospel of professional wrestling champion UltraMantis Black (out July 9th on Relapse Records). Check out the hot new stream of the group’s song “Biomonster DNA” just above.

Having spent over a decade dominating the Chikara wrestling scene, Ultramantis teamed up with members of the beloved punk band Pissed Jeans to form a blistering political hardcore band that is equal parts The Locust, Deadguy and Melt Banana. Imagine the best parts of 90s militant straight-edge hardcore filtered through the over the top theatrics of pro-wrestling and you have UltraMantis Black!
