Straight edge sludgey grindcore/powerviolence band from Thousand Oaks, CA. Rhino Charge started off as a two piece power violence band with Matt on guitar and Ryan on drums/vocals, with the sole purpose of crashing shows. Their first show was played the same day that the band was formed, but Matt's amp was unplugged in the middle of the third song and Rhino Charge was not-so-kindly asked to leave. Later on the band decided to become more serious band so they enlisted long time friend Bjorn Hooper to be the permanent vocalist. After playing shows every weekend, their first 7" came out sometime in November on To Live a Lie Records, and quickly went out of print. The band claims to be only band the plays this kind of music in their area of California.
