Cerce are a five-piece hardcore band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 2011 and broke up in 2013. They played a very raw and energetic form of punk, that was mixed in with a lot of noisy and chaotic elements. Each song is a loaded burst of aggression that takes off as quickly as it ends. The band knocks out a ton of heavy, feedback-fueled riffs topped by these screeching, charismatic female vocals. A notable comparison that tends to be drawn is to Punch, which definitely makes sense; however Cerce at their best are really in their own element. In my personal opinion they put out some of the best hardcore in the past few years, particularly their self-titled EP, which is particularly incredible. They unfortunately didn't last very long though. When they broke up, most of the members started another band called lovechild, while their vocalist went on to start Sisterwives. Enjoy.
