Gaza were a five-piece (and eventually four-piece) hardcore/metalcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah that started in 2004 and ended in 2013. In their nine years as a band, they released three full-length albums, and one EP, East. All their albums are absolute forces on their own. They take influence from all the greats who came just before them, such as Botch, Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Fuck The Facts, and push the aggression and technical prowess a notch forward. Gaza's deep, guttural vocals are the loudspeaker in which to convey their very political agenda, and the sludgy, heavy, chaotic, and punishing riffs are the orchestra to accompany their mission statements.

There's really not much else to say, all three albums are essential recommendations for anyone looking for the dark, heavy, and chaotic side of hardcore. Three of the band's members also now play in Cult Leader, who put out a phenomenal record last year. That's definitely also recommended, and already on here, so get on that if you haven't yet. Enjoy.

  5. Their vocalist is a rapist, hence why they broke up

    1. ^where is your Proof? that is a heavy allegation to be throwing around. it is No different than myself saying the local guys in the state Penn.enjoy YOUR visits because No one tosses a salad- better than YOU.

    2. There were allegations years ago by some feminist. Ironically, she accused him of rape shortly after they had marched at some feminist rally together. I believe the allegations turned out to be false—she was just looking for some attention.
