BURN YOUR BRIDGES
s/t (2003/DEEP SIX)
HARDCORE. You'll get 23 tracks from this two-piece collaboration between Chris Dodge of Slap A Ham/SPAZZ and Bob of Deep Six/LACK OF INTEREST. The tracks are fast and furious with an angry spirit. Musically somewhat comparable to early D.R.I. or CONDEMNED TO DEATH. Raw, aggressive, and angry hardcore.
BURN YOUR LIFE DOWN
don't try (2012/PANIC)
HARDCORE. BURN YOUR LIFE DOWN's debut is none other than a perfect example of human dysfunction meets unorthodox musical scoring. Taking notes from head cases like KISS IT GOODBAY and BLOODLET, BURN YOUR LIFE DOWN takes that school of thought and cultivates a hardened edge all their own. Heavy grooves intertwine with bouncy riffs, all coupled with deranged vocal patterns that paint inkblots that ask, "what does this look like to you?" Vinyl includes a digital download card.
ROCK/INDIE-POP. BURNING BRIDES will continue to go the independent route with their 4th full-length album. The "Anhedonia" album has 13 songs, while the vinyl version will include 2 extra tracks. "Anhedonia" is a solid collection of rock that's obviously influenced by QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE but moves outward into ethereal pop directions (think THE BEATLES as interpreted by SOUNDGARDEN's “Black hole sun”). "Anhedonia" had enough good moments to keep you interested start to finish!
heart first into hell b/w disavowal (2010/FC)
HARDCORE. Featuring members of Midwest Legends MISERY SIGNALS, RACETRAITOR etc., BURNING EMPIRES provide 2 tracks of heavy, yet melodic, metallic hardcore on this debut 7", mixing politics with a sound reminiscent of early SHAI HULUD crossed with elements of UNDYING. 7" includes digital download.
black widow (2012/HIGH ANXIETY)
HARDCORE. Serving as a precursor to their Southern Lord debut to be delivered in 2012, this 7" features 2 tracks of rock 'n' roll-inspired hardcore from this Toronto, Canada crew who feature Chris Colohan of THE CURSED, THE SWARM and LEFT FOR DEAD on vocals. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE. The 1st vinyl offering from Toronto's BURNING LOVE featuring Chris Colohan (CURSED, LEFT FOR DEAD, RUINATION) on vocals. Originally released as a limited cassette demo in 2009, now available on vinyl. Definitely more punk than CURSED but still rooted stoner and doomy metal hardcore. You'll get 4 originals and a cover.
don't ever change/jack the ripper (2010/DERANGED)
HARDCORE. After their "demo" 7" this new release featuring "don't ever change" from their forthcoming full-length and a brilliant cover of NICK CAVE's "jack the ripper". BURNING LOVE features Chris Colohan (CURSED, LEFT FOR DEAD, RUINATION) on vocals. Definitely more punk than CURSED but still rooted stoner/doomy hardcore.
rotten thing to say (2012/SOUTHERN LORD)
HARDCORE. "rotten thing to say" is the 2nd full-length from Torontonians BURNING LOVE, who feature the illustrious Chris Colohan of CURSED, THE SWARM and LEFT FOR DEAD on vocal duties spewing forth his witty, sarcastic and intelligent lyrics over rock 'n' roll-inspired hardcore that merges the darkness of POISON IDEA, the melodic aspects of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and the inspired high energy of MC5.
songs for burning lovers (2010/DERANGED)
HARDCORE. BURNING LOVE started in 2007 as a side project to CURSED and OUR FATHER, with the intention of making some loud and riff driven hardcore songs and mixing together the sounds of their varying favorites (from BLACK FLAG and HOT SNAKES to TURBONEGRO and POISON IDEA). Their "songs for burning lovers" full-length delivers 12 tracks of fierce hardcore-punk.
BURNING LOVE / COLISEUM

BURNPILE / STAKEOUT
split (2002/SIX WEEKS)
HARDCORE/GRINDCORE. Finland's STAKEOUT unleash 8 tracks of relentless DC '82 styled hardcore a la MINOR THREAT or GOVERNMENT ISSUE - ripping in every way. BURNPILE from the same country follow up with a terror filled grindcore approach with 10 studio pummelings.
break the law not the poor (2011/LOUD PUNK)
PUNK-ROCK. Brighton, UK's BURNT CROSS are back with another 4 tracks of crushing anarcho-punk that by now you should be familiar with. This is their follow up to their well received split 7" with the almighty CRESS. Not since the '80s has a band captured this style so perfectly with their sincere convictions and catchy tunes. Just as meaning full as it is a good listen on the turntable. If you like bands like CRASS or CONFLICT then this modern day masterpiece is calling you.
brian haw (2010/LOUD PUNK)

origo & prey on life (2008/GARDEN OF EXILE/RELAPSE)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. Sweden's brightest metal-core hopefuls BURST plow headlong into eternity with their sophomore effort "Origo". With flowing grace and force of conviction, "Origo" lush layers of sound crush and caress in equal measure. Fragile melodic vocals intertwine with explosive screams, and waves of guitar weave songs as expressive and elaborate as human emotion itself. "Origo" is BURST's masterwork of complex, commanding music.
