Maybe it’s the miserable southern heat, but Texas seems to breed some of the best metal influenced hardcore. Easily comparable to local favorites such as Iron Age and Power Trip, SnakeWay destroys the trend of becoming as accessible and poppy as possible; creating a brand of hardcore that is as ugly and dark as they come.

The first proper release from the young San Antonio natives showcases exactly why SnakeWay are quickly becoming local favorites in the Texas hardcore scene. Vortex of Time is a 4 track assault of metallic hardcore, complete with ripping guitar solos and Justin Guerrero’s signature vocals that appropriately sound like a possessed demon. No ex-member hype, just stripped down, metal influenced hardcore played to perfection. “Spiraling downward, no control – VORTEX OF TIME.”
