Harm's Way
Hometown: Chicago, IL USA

Harm's Way are an absolute force of a band from Chicago, Illinois. They made a name for themselves with masterful releases on the Organized Crime and Closed Casket Activities labels. With their punishing "Isolation" album (Closed Casket, 2011), Harm's Way brutally melded a metal attack, hardcore aggression, and industrial repetition into a new kind of sound. Creating a balance of intensity and originality rare in today's world of music.

The evolution of Harm's Way continues with "Blinded", their new 12"EP/CD on Deathwish. Illustrated by Florian Bertmer (Converge, Pig Destroyer, etc) and recorded at Brick Top Recordings by engineer Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos), "Blinded" is a crusher from start to finish. Songs like "Frontal Lobe" and "Live to Loathe" are the band at their heaviest and most adventurous so far. All of it fueled by a vitriol and pain that makes them stronger than all.
