Unearth: “Extinction(s)” Album Review

Get in the fucking pit! That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I hit play on Unearth’s new album Extinction(s).

These Virginians have been blasting their way through violent noise for more than two decades, and while they’ve written and produced stand-out albums over their tenure (2001’s Prowler in the Yard is a prime example), their output over the last decade is unrivaled in calculated beat-downs.
