Cursed – One (2003)


When one brings up metallic hardcore, a plethora of greats such as Botch, Converge, or Coalesce come up, and rightfully so. But it’s just not complete without dropping Cursed, who, in terms of sheer loudness, can bring any of the aforementioned bands to their knees. Recently broken up, these legendary Deathwish alumni left a powerful legacy in a longstanding tradition of angry, noisy, pissed off hardcore (see: Left For Dead). Whether achieving their numbing catharsis through one minute bursts of blackened power chords or long, twisting, sludgefests, Cursed are the sonic equivalent of a fist in the teeth of your boss, or maybe a douchebag relative over for the holidays, your pick.
