The game began in 2016 in The Flex basement in Leeds with some vague ideas about doing a style of punk not heard that often in the show halls of the UK stitched together with some poetic flair. Round one came in 2017 with the Who Will Play? flexi 7inch followed by round two in 2019 with the No One Wins LP. With influences and membership that span the world of hardcore punk, both stylistically and geographically, the rules are to make pummelling hardcore punk that incorporates metallic elements drawn from the near and far reaches of mid 80s international hardcore and thrash to the simplicity of domestic HC pestilence. Blended with a great finesse that is both tasteful and potent, GAME is the conduit. Relatively new but sending sickening sounds into the New Wave of British Hardcore collective, decimating any and all willing to be destroyed. Seek further advice on Game’s sound via the precedent set by Gastunk, Celtic Frost, Sacrilege, Death Side, and the Execute.
