Ramming Speed has been touring around the U.S. with Valient Thorr for the past month or so, and now they have announced they’ll be continuing the tour and heading out west. Starting in September the group will hit the West Coast as openers for Valient Thorr, with Lord Dying joining as additional support in Denver on the 9th of the month. If you haven’t heard these guys yet check out the song “Grinding Dissent” below to see what they have to offer. I found their newest album Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die to be pretty killer, and imagine these tracks would sound great live.

Hide your beers and lock up the liquor cabinet, as Boston “thrashholes” RAMMING SPEED have set their sights on the western U.S.! The quintet — hailed for their “proven party/party/thrash formula” (Examiner.com) — will meet up once again with Valient Thorr (with whom they recently completed a tour of the east coast) beginning on Sept. 7. Full dates can be found below.

RAMMING SPEED’s Prosthetic debut full-length “Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die” creates what Decibel called an “aural feast,” praising their recipe for disaster as “taking a pinch of D-beat, mincing up some grindcore, and julienning a little death metal.” The album, which features an “unrelenting onslaught of power chords, drumming assaults, riffing guitar harmonies and face-melting solos” (Outburn), was recorded earlier this year at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass. with Kurt Ballou (Skeletonwitch, Converge, High on Fire) and is available in a variety of formats, including CD, LP and Audio Cassette via the Prosthetic webstore and digitally via iTunes and Amazon MP3.
