Torch Runner “Locust Swarm” 10″

Communitas Records is a brand new label from one of the dudes behind Southern Empire, and their first release is going to shred your face off.  Torch Runner’s “Locust Swarm” alternates between breakneck hardcore and crushing, sludgy breakdown riffs.  If you’re into heavy music at all, you’re going to find something to like here.  Definitely recommended for fans of Converge, Trap Them, and about anything else Deathwish would put out.  The great-sounding 10″ record comes on black vinyl (edition of 319), maroon/black burst (edition of 109), and cream/black burst (edition of 109).  It also has a beautiful screenprinted jacket.  Hear some tunes at their MySpace, then pick it up for $12-15 at RevHQ, Interpunk, or
