Why should major label bands be the only ones who get love? Unsigned & Streamed is a new column where we stream a song from an unsigned band we at Metal Insider really dig.

This week, we’re proud to present New Jersey’s Old Wounds. Though it’s only been over a year since they’ve formed, Old Wounds have toured across the Northeast and released two EPs (2010’s Sleeper and this year’s Terror Eyes) and a split with fellow NJ hardcore band Changes. The band’s post-hardcore, gloomy sound reminds us a lot of Converge, with riffs that even metalheads who despise hardcore can get into. And apparently we aren’t the only ones who dig Old Wounds. So without further ado, take a listen to Old Wounds’ song “The Watcher,” off of Terror Eyes, in the stream below.

Old Wounds will be releasing Terror Eyes on vinyl around the Thanksgiving time, and plan to release a full length album in the Summer of 2012. Listen to more of Old Wounds’ music at the Bandcamp page. You can keep up to date on the band’s upcoming shows and releases at their Facebook fanpage.

If you’re in an unsigned band and would like to participate in Unsigned & Streamed, email a link to your band’s music and a brief bio to tips [at] metalinsider.com for consideration.
