HEIßE (aka HEISSE) are from Eastern Canada and play dirty, caustic and turbulent screamy hardcore with lots of emo-violence embedded within the noise. Chaos spews out in one to two minute controlled bursts with some of the most pained, emotional and angry screaming I've ever heard. Songs such as "Bloodletter" are very reminiscent of later Beau Navire material that combines multiple screams and a soul engulfing ferocity with grooving, underlying melodies.

Their newest six song EP 'Leverage of Decomposition' takes the dingy freakouts from their 2014 split with If Only There Were No Other People In The World (at which point HEIßE were known as WEAK, but changed their name shortly thereafter) and lays down additional layers of heaviness as well as structure. I find the recording a little lacking in the production department as the songs don't sound as thick and powerful as they probably do live. Regardless, the split and especially the 2015 EP are worth checking out if you like your hardcore heavy on the screaming, anger, speed and toxicity.

An additional reason for posting this was during my podcast with Olin Dunleavy of Friendly Otter Records he played "Tetsusaiga" and explained how awestruck he was by the band (listen to said podcast here). I relistened and realized that I needed to move my butt and post these fellas' stuff. Killer screamo. Give me more!
