Influenced by the likes of Terror, Neglect, Vision Of Disorder, Backtrack, Biohazard, and Madball, HANGMAN delivered their first demo in 2014, and their Hangman II EP in 2015, which helped the fledgling act begin to infiltrate the Long Island and NYHC scenes. Through supporting the likes of Silent Majority, Agnostic Front, Backtrack, Burn, Maximum Penalty, Stigmata, Billy Club Sandwich, Negative Approach, Ramallah, Knocked Loose, Higher Power, and others, and tours with Impact and Queensway, HANGMAN has honed their sound to a much more damaging new level in 2017, which sees the band bringing out their hardest material to date on A Vile Decree.
Five furious tunes are delivered on A Vile Decree, with upbeat circle-pit energy interjected with slamming grooves and vicious breakdowns. HANGMAN captured the tracks in late spring 2017, the EP recorded and mixed at Silver Bullet Studio in Connecticut with Greg Thomas (Misery Signals, Shai Hulud, Recycled Earth) and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering. Additionally, vocalist Brian Zoid of legendary Long Island hardcore brutes Neglect supplies guest vocals to the song “Abandoned.”
