false xmas (2011/KATORGA WORKS)
POST-PUNK/NEW-WAVE. [reduced price] ( ) is the vinyl debut of MERCHANDISE's David Vassalotti's pet project. How do you pronounce it? "false xmas" was originally released as a seldom-heard tape on Cult Maternal, but now the 2 tracks found its way on vinyl. This particular ( ) record finds David channeling NEW ORDER through a more lo-fi lens with even worse vocals reciting emotionally devastating prose. These 2 songs make up what is a perfect pop single. The band is called "( )" or "parenthesis".

HARDCORE. Connecticut has always been a breeding ground for heavy and menacing music. Encapsulating a pure viciousness and ravenous intensity that few ever could achieve. The 100 DEMONS approach is utterly monstrous, equal parts hardcore intensity and gut wrenching metallic precision. After 10 years available again on colored vinyl which includes a digital download card.
green street (2004/RIPTIDE)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. With "green street", Eric Richter continues to define THE 101’s infectiously catchy sound, combining the finely honed atmospheric touch of his previous band ANTARCTICA, with the emotive drive of his CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE years, to create a well-crafted rock album with no end to its emotional depth or sense of tasteful simplicity. Richter’s writing here recalls the burning modern rock sound of JIMMY EAT WORLD and the introspection of early REM. For those out there who like rock served with pop hooks, buzzing with heady energy, intelligence, and real emotional depth, prepare to swoon to the sounds of THE 101’s "green street".
POST-HARDCORE. Recorded over a frigid weekend in Boston, 108 have returned with their most electrifying and intense album to date, "18.61." It's apparent that a spiritual restlessness and awareness continues to write in the collective consciousness of 108 which is an attribute that has set them apart from the rest of the common hardcore scene since their inception. From there, "18.61" pounds forth with the utmost intensity. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
a new beat from a dead heart (2007/DEATHWISH)
POST-HARDCORE. No one can deny that fake fashion posturing and lifeless clone music are on the verge of killing heavy music. Of course, there is a reason why 108 has become such an iconic figure in the hardcore landscape back in the days - to put it simply, there are not many bands that can touch the group in terms of its frenetic musical approach. 108 took the ethereal spirit of BAD BRAINS, doused it with the ferocity of "age of quarrel" era CRO-MAGS and imbued itself with the boundary pushing yet introspective lyrical and artistic sensibilities. While many of the older 108’s songs are steeped with a krishna spiritual marrow, the band took on this full-length (thanks for that!) more of a philosophical approach to its art. .
creation. sustenance. destruction. (2006/EQUAL VISION)
POST-HARDCORE. This release is a stunning discography that culls the emotionally eviscerating "songs of separation" release, to the group's unforgettably searing epic "threefold misery", along with its chaotic final, "curse of instinct" release. In addition an unreleased gem known as "panic" will also grace the release. Recently remastered the 108 discography is a moving testament to an era of hardcore that was brimming with passion, intensity and spirit the likes of which have yet to be duplicated.
the discography (2013/PARADE)
HARDCORE. Complete discography of this Spanish hardcore band which played intermittently from 1999 to 2004, and which created an original and abrasive blend of screamo and power-violence. Their sound was compared to ORCHID, REVERSAL OF MAN or even IN/HUMANITY. Their lyrics pictured an anguished existence under a darkly poetic charm. Release contains 9 tracks (includes the 4 tracks of their debut 7", 2 other 1999 tracks on the a side, and 3 rehearsal tracks from 2004 on the b-side. Remastered and pressed on heavy 180gr vinyl.
..a better view of the rising moon (2007/VICTORY)
EMO/INDIE-ROCK. At the center of 1997's debut, "..a better view of the rising moon", is the continued search for the band's creative vision as artists and friends. The members of 1997 come from diverse backgrounds, yet by meshing all of their styles and influences into a musical melting pot, the band has created a sound and style that is startlingly fresh and distinctive. The male and female harmonies summon elements of contemporary emo, lovelorn pop, groove and acoustic folk singalong.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD
here waits thy doom (2013/WAR ON MUSIC)
METAL. "here waits thy doom" is the 4th album from the Canadian traditional heavy-metal heroes. "here waits thy doom" journeys even farther back into the realms of retro, reaching deep into the darkerst lairs of late '70s hard-rock and proto-metal. The result is a flawless onslaught of punishing, epic tracks with untouchable soaring highs and endless priceless licks. Now available on vinyl; repackaged in a heavy gatefold-jacket with brand new exclusive artwork.
INDIE/POST-ROCK. "polemics" expands 31 KNOTS' sound with the addition of new instrumentation, new timbre, and further experimentation on their syncopated style. The album takes its name from the lyrical content of the album which represents literal arguments representing a conclusion of two or more view points. "Polemics" serves as a precursor to the upcoming 31 KNOTS full-length which the band is currently recording. Their sound swipes FUGAZI's muscular rhythms and GANG OF FOUR's energetic musical dialectic, along with KING CRIMSON and YES' proggy forays into chord progressions unknown.
the days and nights of everything anywhere (2007/POLYVINYL)
INDIE/POST-ROCK. The best music is always truly indefinable. Portland, Oregon's prolific 31KNOTS have described their sound as "post-apocalyptic vaudevillian punk", and while that's an apt description, it doesn't begin to express the level of demented-pop brilliance on the band's latest full-length, "the days and nights of everything anywhere. From the stuttering sequenced intro of the opener to the airy ambient ending of the closer, "the days and nights of everything anywhere" is the complete realization of the sound 31KNOTS have been working toward for the last 9 years.
trump harm (2011/POLYVINYL)
INDIE/POST-ROCK. In a day and age in which bands are exalted, obsessed over, and then forgotten as quickly as a web page can be refreshed, creating consistently adventurous and exciting albums for over a decade is no small feat. Moving into their 7th full-length, "trump harm", 31KNOTS are a living testament to the advantages of staying true to yourself over fleeting flash-in-the-pan glamour in an age of instant gratification. More than anything else, the sound of "trump harm" is yet another fresh take on the band’s unique brand of jagged yet melodic, gritty yet graceful, grandiose punk-rock. 31KNOTS executes each teetering musical jerk and halt and subsequent somersault with jawdropping agility. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
