Ready to explode. Respect deserved, but never shown. The final straw. With nothing left to lose, screaming fuck you all. -- "Common Ground"

HOSTILITY is all about brutal, honest, in your face metal. "We have constantly pushed ourselves to be better. Metal is a part of who we are -- we live it, breathe it, sleep it. It's like therapy," says HOSTILITY's singer GREG HARAN. "We really live this shit 24-7," continues guitarist TONY VORRISES. "It's a way of life for us."

HOSTILITY has played hundreds of blistering live performances all across the U.S. with acts such as Slipknot, Chimaira, Machine Head, Fear Factory, Super Joint Ritual, etc. Uncompromised was mixed by the world-renowned Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Sepultura, Machine Head, Trivium, etc.). According to VORRISES, "We always dreamed of working with Colin Richardson. His years of experience helped us achieve the sound we envisioned. The album sounds like a fucking battering ram!"

Formed in 1998 while still in high school, the members of HOSTILITY have remained constant as well as their unique musical vision. As HARAN explains, "Uncompromised was the obvious choice for the name of our first album. Our goal has never changed, our commitment has never wavered. We've always been the band we wanted to be."

The first album cut from Uncompromised is "Without a Chance," which according to HARAN, "...is about learning to play the hand you're dealt, overcoming your own perceived downfall, and not succumbing to other people's labels or attempts to categorize you." And "Common Ground", says VORRISES, "is our 'Fuck Everybody' song. It's about living life without boundaries. It's about nonconformity. Stick to your guns and go for whatever it is that you want." HOSTILITY's relentless music and commitment clearly establishes them as a band on the rise.

"We have a 'take no prisoners' attitude," explains VORRISES. "We're all about our music, our shows and raging with our fans."
