Extinction a.d. Release a Surprise Ep of Covers Exclusively on Bandcamp


October 30, 2020 — Long Island Thrash masters Extinction AD have released a fist full of covers today exclusively on Bandcamp. The tracks are all covers of American Hardcore bands from the 1980s including DRI and The Dead Kennedys. 

“Early 80’s American hardcore is one of, if not my favorite era of music,” says vocalist and guitarist Rick Jimenez. “I’ve always wanted to pay homage to it. Doing it through the lens of Extinction A.D. was not just a lot of fun, but put focus on how much things haven’t changed since the Reagan era of the united states.”

This is the first bit of music we’re hearing from the band since the release of Decimation Treaty in 2018. The sophomore full length was recorded and mixed by Joe Cincotta (Suffocation, Obituary) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Iron Reagan, Converge, Obituary). It featured tracks such as “Secret Worlds,” “Age of Revenge,” and “In The Wake of Uprising.” Decimation Treaty was received well by critics as well. Metal Injection raved that “each song is consistently engaging, evolving and introducing something different as the record flies forward. It’s a wild record that guarantees you’ll be tossing yourself into a pit.” Dead Rhetoric gets straight to the point proclaiming that Decimation Treaty is “all about the riffs.”
