Rifle Diet are an anarcho-crustcore band from Minneapolis, MN. They're a part of Minneapolis punk/metal scene along with Bellow, Youwretch and Morality Crisis; their guitarist also plays in Youwretch. Some more info from the band themselves:

"We are ex-members of Garmonbozia (blackened crust) and In Defence (hardcore punk) who got together after our singer Mariko decided to start a band after the demise of Garmonbozia.
We originally started out 5 years ago as a more fastcore style band called Thrash Compactor but after some lineup changes and with our style getting heavier and darker we decided to change our name to Rifle Diet and put out our unreleased Thrash Compactor material as a split with our new stuff. 
Our name comes from a railroad strike during 1877 where the owner of one of the biggest railroads on the East coast of the US recommended giving strikers "a rifle diet for a few days and see how they like that kind of bread".  You can read more about the strike here if you are interested.
Our split record came out in 2012 and is currently available through Profane Existence as 7" vinyl (part of a package deal) and through our bandcamp page as a free download of the Rifle Diet side"
