these self-proclaimed musical barbarians are beyond words, i should really check out their 2010 album
furious, heartfelt, and catchy. + sick vocals, both harsh and clean.

Starkweather is an innovative metal/hardcore band from Philadelphia, United States that formed in 1989. Their name is taken from Charles Starkweather, a late 1950s spree killer. Starkweather helped pioneer the hardcore/heavy metal crossover sound that would later be known as “metalcore”. Starkweather made an impression with a succession of 7” single releases. These were followed by their first EP, Starkweather, for Inner Rage Records (1993); a studio album, Crossbearer, for Too Damn Hype (1994); their second full-length effort, Into the Wire, on Edison Recordings (1995); and the 1996 Bitter Frost / Bee Stings and Posion Eggs split with Season to Risk through Supermodel Records.

Starkweather released their third album, Croatoan, in late 2005. It was produced by Pierre Remillard, and was released only on vinyl through Hypertension Records. In that year, the band went on their first international European tour. 2006 saw the CD release of Croatoan on Candlelight Records. Croatoan features guest performances from bass player Liam Wilson (The Dillinger Escape Plan and Burnside) and Jim Winters (Believer, Earth Crisis, Turmoil, and The Promise).
