Head Wound City

head_wound_cityHead Wound City is an American mathcore/noisegrind/thrashcore supergroup consisting of Jordan Blilie and Cody Votolato of The Blood Brothers, Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Justin Pearson and Gabe Serbian, both from The Locust and Holy Molar. Their debut self-titled EP was released in 2005 on Three One G (both CD and limited 10″ vinyl EP), and was written, recorded, and produced all in the time span of one week.

Their music is best described as rapid-fire bursts of noise and screams. The songs are typically quite short in length, with the aforementioned EP running less than 10 minutes in seven songs. The lyrics stay as rough as the sound which patterned along with the mathcore and thrashcore result in unique wave of modern punk with similar sound and effect to all of Justin Pearson and Three One G Records projects. The band remains listed as active, although no news regarding future releases have ever been discussed. They have taken influences from artists like Antioch Arrow, GG Allin, Man Is the Bastard, Gang of Four, Queen, Slayer, the Stooges, and Give Up the Ghost.
