Philadelphia Metalcore outfit Obsolescence was formed in January 2020 by Ben Mascioli, Ryan Howie, Damien Pace, and Bobby Jeffers. Their unique take on heavy music combines the groove, technicality and ferocity of bands like Mudvayne and Killswitch Engage with the melodic tendencies of bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine. Their debut EP, Ways to End it All, Vol. I, was released on November 5th, 2021, including their single “Wretched Veins”.
“That [Wretched Veins] breakdown literally was flat out amazing, brutal, rip your face off, kill your mother, hit someone’s titties… whatever you want to call it.” – Breakdown Central
The band is currently prepping the release of their second release, Ways to End It All, Vol. II.
