The new hardcore band Gazzan features the return of brothers Aaron “A Double” and Leon Micha Melnick. Famous for having played with local hardcore heroes Integrity, the two have teamed up with guitarist Blaze Tishko, drummer Rob Orr and American Werewolves singer Trevor Moment.

The band recorded its debut EP Extinction at the Mars Compound with engineer Bill Korecky. According to the press release announcing the EP’s release, the songs “corrupt traditional hardcore structures, undermining classic metal tropes and sidestepping the crossover revival.” With its dueling guitars and parched vocals, the opening track "Bleed for Metal" appropriately sets the tone for the heavy collection of tunes. 

The band has shows scheduled for the rest of the summer and performs with Monolord, Beastmaker and Sweat Lodge on Sept. 2 at the Grog Shop.
