Building on a diverse base of influences from Cave In to Deftones to Botch, Austin, TX’s DSGNS, who formed in 2011, focus on creating intelligent but monolithic songs that urge listeners to think for themselves.

DSGNS are what hardcore and metal have failed to provide in a very long time, sincere unabashed anger that does not blur the lines nor confuse with clichéd, cookie cutter images and replicated musical textures.

This is what hardcore was meant to sound like — damn mad.
