Obsessed By Speed: Weekend Playlist by LOUD NIGHT

by | Oct 16, 2020 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you a truly fantabulous playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This time around, we bring you a raging ripper from Loud Night, a Richmond band bringing together members of Battlemaster and Ramming Speed to make some ferocious, heavy noise. They just released their debut LP, Mindnumbing Pleasure, a few weeks ago through Richmond’s own Vinyl Conflict, and the first press is already sold out, so clearly, a lot of you have already gotten the word on this rip-roaring group.

A second pressing of Mindnumbing Pleasure is in the works, so if you haven’t scored your copy yet, you won’t have long to wait. But in the meantime, get down with a selection of excellent tunes curated for RVA Mag by Loud Night. They’re bringing us a treasure trove of thrashing metal, hardcore punk, D-beat crust, rock n’ roll anthems, and more. With cold temperatures and rain rolling in over the weekend, this will be the perfect mix to soundtrack the harshness of the outside world.

Get grim, Virginia.
