CATEGORY 514 is paid in full – or should I say RAD IN FULL! This Death Metal/Beatdown two-piece is on some next-level wreck shop shit! Their demo No Love for Fakes drops later this month via Island Hardcore and I know for a fact it’s going to be one of my favorites of the year! The pre-order is in effect HERE and you better hurry up because there will be limited amounts! Now it’s time for y’all to check out the new CATEGORY 514 visual for their Beatdown Anthem “Read the Room”! Say it LOUD…”No Love for Fakes”!
Category 514 started in summer 2020 in Montreal, QC. Gazm (the other band that we both play in) was on hiatus due to COVID-19 and we needed something to do.
Initially, we wanted to do a pure 90s death/doom revival record but we realized that pool of bands is too saturated right now. As history has shown, again and again, it’s OK to be 3 years late to a metal trend if you claim it’s a hardcore band and talk shit on the mic.
Musically the whole idea was kind of like, what if every kind of heavy evil music from the mid-90s was put together. Imagine Bulldoze and Carcass with a touch of Evil Pimp thrown into a blender to make some real potent dumb idiot juice.
