MP3 exclusive: Random Acts of Violence

Matt Hooker rocks the Danzig tee (photo from

When Matt Hooker isn't busy playing the crotch shaker (check out the video) or singing songs about mustache rides with his crew of redneck-rock jokesters Foam 'n' Mesh, you can find him melting faces with local thrash masters Random Acts of Violence. RAOV boast some of the best guitar-monies this side of Maiden and a double-bass-drum, double-picking attack that'll grow hair on your balls. (Where'd they learn how to do that anyway? From the "Shred-Lord"?) Word on the street is that they've got a new drummer who (a) looks like a young Sebastian Bach (this one not this one) and (b) beats the skins like Dave Lombardo. Inman Square's Pino Bros. Ink is set to release three new RAOV songs as a mini-EP with a ten-minute computer-compatible bonus video; you'll hear it first right here. On Sunday night, they'll be broing down with Rucker for FNX's New England Product and here's a little something to whet your whistle.
