New England extreme metal unit Escuela Grind will release its new LP, 'Memory Theater', on September 30. Produced by Kurt Ballou, the album -- the band's first for MNRK Heavy (High on Fire, Crowbar) -- features 9 tracks of sharp, scorching underground music that rages and rips in equal measure. The band’s music might be terrifying, but the overwhelming spirit behind Escuela Grind is a message of empowerment. As it destroys musical boundaries, the quartet attacks the idea of “gatekeeping” with equal ferocity. Let Escuela Grind take you to class.
