hardcore confusion vol. III+IV (2013/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE. Four new songs from North Carolina's greatest, and those who have heard it are already pronouncing it the band's strongest material since "daydreamnation". DOUBLE NEGASTIVE's 1st recording with new vocalist Cameron (formerly of LOGIC PROBLEM) finds them revisiting the blistering tempos of their debut, but infused with the acid-drenched riffs they've been writing for the past several years. NOTE: this record is expensive, but the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, including a custom gatefold jacket with spot gloss finish (that will complete your puzzle whether you have the 1st or 2nd pressing of vol.I and II) as well as a hand-screened poster, lyric sheet, and a digital download card.
hardcore confusion vol.1 (2011/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE. DOUBLE NEGATIVE return with the 1st volume of their follow-up to the epic "daydreamnation" full-length, and they haven't slowed down one step. Continuing the progression displayed between their 1st and 2nd release, the 2 songs on this 7" are harder, faster, and weirder than anything they've done before. "writhe", in particular, is probably the best song they've written so far. Colored vinyl comes with deluxe jackets with spot-gloss printing and includes a digital download card.
hardcore confusion vol.2 (2011/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE. The 2nd in DOUBLE NEGATIVE's four-volume "hardcore confusion" 7" series finds the band blasting out 2 more certified riff monsters. For those of you who who like their mid-paced stompers, these songs might be your new favorites. Colored vinyl comes with deluxe jackets with spot-gloss printing and includes a digital download card.
hits (2012/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE. These 3 songs are the 1st with new drummer and the last 3 with the original vocalist; but continue to be vintage DOUBLE NEGATIVE with perhaps a bit more of a rockin' tip on this 7" without sacrificing any of their raw hardcore vibe. Colored 7" includes a digital download card.
whose world is this (2012/HARVCORE)
HARDCORE. Proving that Delaware is more than just a speedbump on the way to Maryland, DOUBLEDEALER play some of the most brutal hardcore out there today. Taking influences from New York hardcore new and old, DOUBLEDEALER would be at home sharing the stage with MADBALL or the CRO-MAGS. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
diary of a mad band (2010/ROADRUNNER)
DOOM/METAL. Supergroup DOWN features vocals by Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown (PANTERA), Pepper Keenan (CORROSION OF CONFORMITY), Jimmy Bower (EYEHATEDOD) and Kirk Windstien (CROWBAR). "diary of a mad band" features a 3xLP full concert recorded in London. Comes in heavy 180gr vinyl and includes all DOWN classics.
IV - part 1 the purple (2012/ROADRUNNER)
DOOM/METAL. "IV - part 1 the purple" is DOWN's 1st new material in 5 years. This 6-song record is the 1st of 4 that the band plan to release over 2013, and features the work of new addition to the lineup Pat Brudners (CROWBAR) on bass, who joins the all-star cast. "IV - part 1 the purple", first and foremost, sounds like DOWN: sludgy and doomy, dripping sweat and tar, everything rendered on a grand scale, anchored by Anselmo's trademark impudent bark. Windstein and Keenan have a fantastic chemistry on guitars. While the sound of this record is classic DOWN, delivered without experimentation or flourish, the form of the album is where the band allow themselves freedom to explore, and very successfully. "IV - part 1 the purple" is at once extremely satisfying, but also leaves the list
over the under (2007/ROADRUNNER)
DOOM/METAL. DOWN's "over the under" is 60min. of groundbreaking music combining elements of BLACK SABBATH, LYNRD SKYNYRD and everything in between that sets the group apart from anything in the marketplace today. This 3rd full-length is not as crushingly brutal as the 1st album and it is more focused and polished then the 2nd. It still utilizes the crunchingly heavy catchy riffs and bare lyrics and vocals that made previous DOWN music so effective but this time there is more of a blue's influence and more soulful vocals to complement the inherent raw power. This record documents the lives of these New Orleans natives through the last 5 years of catastrophe, tragedy and ultimately triumph. DOWN has not disappointed with each successive release. Packed in a well designed gatefold-sleeve.
DOWN BUT NOT OUT
caught in the cycle (2014/PAINKILLER)
HARDCORE. Painkiller's 50th release! One of Boston's true cult classics from the last decade, DOWN BUT NOT OUT emerged from the ether as a fully formed hardcore power house in 1999. For a minute it seemed they might take over the world with their perfectly crafted and delivered 4 song demo, and crushing live performances. It wasn't meant to be in the end, but even 14 years later the initial promise of the "caught in the cycle" demo is still obvious, holding up far better than the majority of their peers when you listen now. Here we present it to you, mastered for the first time and pressed to 7" vinyl.
DOWN BY LAW

DOWN TO NOTHING
the most (2014/REVELATION)
HARDCORE. DOWN TO NOTHING's Revelation debut full-length, "the most", is a fully realized outlet for their sound, melding their energy and strength with a newfound melody. With influences ranging from GORILLA BISCUITS and JUDGE to local Richmond, VA legends FOUR WALLS FALLING, "the most" cements DOWN TO NOTHING's place at the forefront of hardcore. The thick guitars and barreled drums give an accurate replication of their infamous live show. Colored (gold) vinyl includes a digital download card.
DOWN TO NOTHING
HARDCORE. DOWN TO NOTHING started from humble beginnings in 2000. After putting out their 1st full-length, "save it for the birds", they knew they were bound for more. In the next years, DOWN TO NOTHING released 2 splits with KIDS LIKE US and ON THIN ICE. The 2 splits along with 3 unreleased songs were compiled and released as "splitting headache" in 2005. This compilation showed immense growth and acted as a bridge to their most recent work, "the most". After being out-of-print for years, DOWN TO NOTHING's "splitting headache" and "save it for the birds" are finally available again on one release, "unbreakable". Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
