Based in Connecticut, Pristina features ex-members of a diverse list of Northeast bands, including Dry Kill Logic, 100 Demons, Invocation Of Nehek, A Thousand Falling Skies, Born Under Saturn, and more. Revitalizing the best elements of the 90’s metallic hardcore boom, Pristina lays down the gauntlet with a menacing sound that is equally dark, driving, and hypnotic. Revolver Magazine has described Pristina as “a chaotic surge of hardcore intimidation, atonal riff bombardment, and sound-collage psych ops.” 

September 28, 2010, Pristina releases its first full-length album, The Drought (ov Salt and Sorrow), on Trendkill Recordings (Candiria, Spylacopa.) The Drought (ov Salt and Sorrow) was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin (Converge, Deadguy) at Austin Enterprise.

The album is based around a 23-minute title track, boasting guest appearances by Today Is The Day’s Steve Austin, Bloodlet’s Scott Angelicos, and Starkweather’s Rennie Resmini. .. .. .. ..PRISTINA.. .."The Drought ( Ov Salt and Sorrow )" ..CD - KILL 024 ..PRE-ORDER NOW !!! .... .. .... .. .. ..PRISTINA.. .."The Drought ( Ov Salt and Sorrow )" ..LP - KILL 024 ..PRE-ORDER NOW !!!
