"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"
"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

Everything Went Black
Everything Went Black plays a concise, sophisticated brand of fast and heavy aggressive music drawing influence from the likes of the Hope Conspiracy, Black Flag and Entombed, while still maintaining a sound that is very much its own. Since the band's formation in the spring of 2009, it has self released an EP, a 7" on Hands Up! Records, a split with Louisville, KY hardcore outfit Rattletooth on St. Louis based label I Hate Punk Rock Records, and a full length on Lost Shepherd/Prosthetic Records, home of artists such as Skeletonwitch, Trap Them, and The Acacia Strain.
Everything Went Black have shared the stage with Converge, Have Heart, Black Breath and more. In 2012 Everything Went Black hit the road to support their full length Cycles Of Light. Playing festivals such as SXSW, The Rumble, and supporting metallic hardcore legends Ringworm on the way to and from Chaos In Tejas. Everything Went Black are currently working on their second full length due out in 2013.
