AGGROS is the brand new instrumental hardcore/metal band of OG Cro-Mag songwriter and founder Parris Mayhew.
The band is a DIY hardcore style venture. NO LABEL. And will be self-releasing one song/video at a time. A music video will accompany every song, and will be viewable only on Parris’ YouTube channel, so go and subscribe to the page.
The first song release "CHAOS MAGIC" premiered on October 28th, 2020 on Metal Injection! It is a hardcore epic so packed with riffs that it needs no vocals!
On November 1st, 2021 the 2nd song & video "CITY KIDS" also exclusively premiered on Metal Injection. “City Kids” is a landscape of a song, constructed from a conspiracy of Parris’ diverse musical influences. For this song those were primarily BLACK FLAG and RUSH.
THE AGGROS will sound and feel familiar to anyone who knows Parris Mayhew's high-school band and the groundbreaking albums he made with them, THE AGGROS is simply a continuation for Parris as a songwriter, producer and guitarist, so it will be what fans expect and then some! Some people have called AGGROS "progressive hardcore" but it's NYHC to the core. The album also features some blazing guitar solos by Chuck Lenihan from CRUMBSUCKERS, blistering drums by COBZ, and Roy Mayorga joined Parris on drums for the track FEAR VIEW MIRROR.
