Combatwoundedveteran or Combat Wounded Veteran were a hardcore punk band split between Ithaca, New York and Tampa, Florida that was heavily influenced by early grindcore,[1] screamo,[2] math rock and powerviolence.[1][3] In their 7 years of existence they managed to put out several splits, including one with heavily influential screamo band Orchid,[4] a 10" EP, one full-length album and a posthumous release that compiles nearly all their splits and early EPs.[5] Though the band did not tour very often or put out many records their footprint is still visible in the screamo and powerviolence underground. The band was signed to famous Florida record label No Idea Records late in their career. Guitarist Chris Norris currently does graphic design under the name Steak Mtn. and has contributed artwork for releases by groups such as Atom And His Package, Orchid and Against Me!.[3][5][6]
