Emerging from the wretched mid-Atlantic hive of scum and villainy known as Richmond, Virginia, mathcore stalwarts Black Matter Device have been carving a destructive swath over the musical landscape for the past several years.

Decibel has procured our own special edition of Worm‘s Bluenothing from the muck, limited to a mere 97 copies on “Swamp Green & Blue Ooze” merged color vinyl!
