Utmost is a hardcore band from Staten Island, New York that formed in 2018 by members Alex Allen, Jonathan Wisniewski, and Alex Michael Mazzie. Utmost at heart is a hardcore band, yet sonically, their music explores a wide range of influences from 90s post-hardcore bands like Seaweed and Farside, to early 00’s straight-forward hardcore like Mental and Battery with a mix of chaotic metalcore like Botch and The Chariot. The result is Utmost— high-energy, fun, upbeat, sometimes chaotic hardcore with 90’s alternative melodies. After releasing a few singles and their 2018 debut LP, “A Garden, A Grave”, Utmost is ready for 2021 with new music and a refreshed sound to share, starting on January 29 with the single, ‘Big Dose’.
