"We know we ain't too pretty, we know we're outta' line. We're out of luck, but who gives a fuck? We never spend a dime"
Turnstile is a young band from the Baltimore/DC area. For fans of Madball and Leeway, Turnstile delivers a unique mix of heavy and groovy. Formed in the late summer of 2010, the band has released a demo catching the ears of many audiences. The impelling riffs, catchy rhythms, and driving vocals bring out a sound that will make you jump. They will release their 6-song 7" EP entitled "Pressure To Succeed" on Reaper Records in March 2011.
"Six tracks of down-tuned, head cracking, thick skulled hardcore in the vein of early Merauder or any other band that you wouldn't be surprised supporting thick hair braids, bandannas, and stomach tattoos. Age of Ignorance toes the "Slayer-line," an imaginary line in which a band straddles being a hardcore band or a metal act. However, Downpresser are thankfully fast enough to keep hardcore kids happy, but also have enough blistering solos to have even the most inept air guitar player swinging a mean imaginary axe. In a hardcore world filled to the brim with crappy "deathcore" bands singing about rape and partying, it's good to see bands like Downpresser keeping metallic hardcore, well, hardcore." - Age of Ignorance review, http://www.scenepointblank.com/, December 2009
