Though some argue that hardcore is more a worldview than just a strain of punk, its influence can be heard more and more outside its original form. RØSENKØPF, a three-piece from New York, have wed hardcore’s blistering vocal delivery and guitar squall with industrial, dimly-lit electronica with roots that spiral out in countless directions. Check out “Burning Spirits,” an anvil-heavy opening cut from their forthcoming, self-titled debut, due soon from Brooklyn’s own Wierd Records.
