"What the press Says"

“F.T.B swings a big stick of punk metallic sludge that’s as subtle as an out of control steamroller…” Punk Monthly

“aggression fueled explosions utilize sledge hammer riffing and sandpaper vocals… There’s something here for everyone, from thrash heads to mosh-mad hardcore fans… Charlotte Observer

“they write good songs…as far as the live shows go, things tend to get violent…they are pretty damn good. I can’t wait for the new one… Chainsaw (Tangent’s)

“the fucking tape came wrapped in a maxi-pad, so I knew what to expect: total hardcore destruction” Maximum Rock and Roll

“this is some heavy grooving shit, not death metal or hardcore, but the best of both.” Beowulf Zine

“latest release offers up another intense dish of hardcore aesthetics, proving once again these heavy hitters have the internal fury to be Charlotte’s most intense sludge-core outfit and the fistful of chords to finish the job.” Creative Loafing

“four piece from Lincolnton whose legendary local status is grounded equally in furious metal power and substantial girth… they keep themselves distant from the herd of trendy metal with guitar shreds and hellish vocal images and not to mention the bourbon soaked buffoonery…
Indie File

“if you’ve seen them, you’ll never forget them…” Gabba Hey

On the song Kill Jesse Helms “seeing Jesse Helms trapped in a dark alley with these four frightening characters, I think I’m smiling already” Indie File

Wanna Flower With That?


Feeling a bit camera shy


Our influences are to wide to mention. What sets us apart from other bands is that we have fun with crowd and one song is deliberately different from the next.
