We're not officially half way through 2012, but it isn't hard for Noisecreep to declare Not of This Earth one of the best hardcore albums of the year. The four men behind the 10-song gem, Richmond, Va. outfit Fire & Ice, tracked the record with producers Dean Baltulonis (ex-454 Big Block guitarist) and AJ Novello (Leeway/Cro-Mags guitarist) at Wild Arctic studios in New Hampshire.

We can go on and on about Not of This Earth, but we rather let the album do the talking. With the album hitting stores today via our friends at Reaper Records (Trapped Under Ice, Madball), Noisecreep is pumped to bring you an exclusive stream of the entire album!
