Hailing from Essex, England, Splitknuckle have been creating raw, crushing hardcore since 2014. The band have now released their sophomore album, Breathing Through The Wound, via DAZE and Northern Unrest. The album sways between relentlessly heavy, filled with chunky metallic riffs and raging vocals, and more sullen, experimenting with the depths of melody. Working with Ben Spence at Fuzzbrain Studios in Walthamstow, Spence encouraged the band to get creative and the result is an exploration through hardcore and melodic death metal.

Guest features from Pest Control and Raiden vocalists, and a cover of Special Move‘s The Sickness round out the record. Lyrically, the album is about dealing with what’s happened to you for better or worse, be your actions “good” or “bad”, however you look at it. Splitknuckle will also be playing an album release show at London’s The Dome on the 20th January with support from 50 Caliber and Renounced.
