Ringworm: Show Preview

After 23 years, Ringworm has retained its credibility as a genre-defining powerhouse of hardcore metal through a simple formula: the perverse onslaught of listeners' ears. The Cleveland outfit clobbers through speed-picked, palm-muted riffs — following in the steps of thrash gods Kreator — and conjures half-time breakdowns that elicit the hellion mosher in hardcore fans. Vocalist Human Furnace spews offensive lyrics like his blood is boiling. Touring behind its latest full-length, Hammer of the Witch, Ringworm is expected to aggravate the audience with tracks like “Bleed” and “Psychic Vampire,” along with such classics as “Justice Replaced by Revenge.”
