Our Family in Japan has been putting on the biggest hardcore/metal fest in Japan for the past few years. BLOODAXE FEST 2013 has just made their first announcement…….

Loyal To The Grave

/ By Matteo

We are proud to officially welcome to the Us Versus Them familia Tokyo Japan’s finest LOYAL TO THE GRAVE

Loyal To The Grave is the biggest and heaviest thing to come outta Japan since Godzilla! They have been destroying stages all over the world since 1998 and have more than a few solid releases under their belt. These guys have been all over the world and I recently had a chance to catch up with them in Los Angeles. I was blown away by the intensity and energy they put out on stage. 2012′s “Against The Odds” was a prime example of what Japanese hardcore is and has to offer. Perfectly executed on disc and live. They embody the same ideals and DIY ethic that Us Versus Them has always been about. They have been putting on shows and taking care of bands touring Japan for years. They are also responsible for BLOODAXE fest that showcases some of the world’s top names in hardcore. Keep an eye out for this years line up
