true enemy (2015/CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES)
HARDCORE/METAL. DISGRACE exemplifies some of the most malicious and technical metallic hardcore out there in a devastating way all their own, with the penetrating harshness of masters MERAUDER, COLD AS LIFE and ALL OUT WAR taking on more metallic attributes of early BOLT THROWER, CANNIBAL CORPSE and SEPULTURA, delivering a modern, punishing metallic groove. DISGRACE has captured 34min. of executioner-style metallic hardcore, with exceptionally hard breakdowns and immediately contagious movements through a hardline delivery on their "true enemy" release. Vinyl includes a poster and a digital download card.
DISGRACE / HARNESS
split (2013/CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES)
HARDCORE/METAL. Southern California's own DISGRACE and HARNESS both display 2 new tracks of breakdown-driven hardcore on this limited split 7". Features 2 original covers by legendary metal artist Dan Seagrave. For fans of STIGMATA and INTEGRITY. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
a thousand prickly needles (2016/HIGH FASHION)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Those who have heard the band's demo will be impressed by how much further the band has upped the ante in terms of noised-out destruction. For those who have never heard DISGUSTI before, it's kinda like one of those Marvel "what if" comics - What if WASTOIDS and SNAKECHARKER battled on planet d-Beat? It's kind of like a love song. It's kind of like a sweet disc that comes in a slick limited-edition package complete with some extremely cool art. Do you like punk? Whatever. Get fuckin' pricked.
nightmare visions (2013/DISHONORABLE)
HARDCORE. This 8 track vinyl is the sickest hardcore shit out of Norway since ages. Fierce brutal '80s hardcore - sounds like a whirlwind of FRAMTID, NIGHTMARE, BANNLYST and of course DISCHARGER. This is a massive follow up to their 1st two acclaimed 7"s from 2010. The hammer is comingdown full force from Scandinavia. Teeth are grinding, heads are banging, and beer is spilling!
repair (2015/NEVER BACK DOWN)
HARDCORE-PUNK. "repair" is the 2nd 7" offering from Philadelphia's DISINTEREST, following 2 runs of their demo tape and a split 7" with SKIN GRAFT. These songs represent DISINTEREST's original driving force in songwriting, and they were originally recorded in 2014 with the exception of "stethoscope". They capture the band's intention of immersing elements of hardcore-punk in noise without the desire to adhere too strongly to the thematic and compositional conventions of either style, and sonically bring to mind bands like CULT RITUAL and RAW NERVE. Limited edition of 300 copies.
4 song (2011/LOUD PUNK)
PUNK-ROCK. After a fantastic demo tape Montreal's THE DISKONECTED (with former INEPSY members) have finally released their long over due debut 7". With 4 tracks of driving punk much like something that would of come out of the UK in the '80s by bands like MAU MAUS, ONE WAY SYSTEM and THE SKEPTIX.
future cancers (2009/LIFEWIRE)
HARDCORE. "future cancers" is the 2nd release from one of New York City's darkest and heaviest hardcore bands. Unforgiving down-tuned hardcore inspired by the d-beat genre. Passionate music that is distorted, intense and heavy with the right touch of melody. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
the singles collection (2014/RADIATION)
HARDCORE-PUNK. DISORDER is a hardcore-punk band formed in 1980 in Bristol, U,K., and still going strong today. "the singles collection" compiles their 1st and fieriest recordings in one place; comprised of three 7"s and the 8 track MLP "perdition" - recordings which John Peel allegedly referred to as sounding like "shit" (possibly a compliment) - this LP of long out-of-print recordings would be a welcome addition to any punk collector's shelves.
Jusitce in a bag (2004/PROFANE EXISTENCE)
PUNKROCK. Four brand new tracks from Minneapolis' purvayers of the classic, pissed-off punk rock sound. Unlike their much rougher debut EP, these new songs were written to highlight the differences betwen the three vocalists (one male, one female, and one of questionable allegience). All the lyrics are bitingly angry commentaries about the current social and political situation in which we are forced to exist. Musically this falls somewhere between ONE WAY SYSTEM, DISCHARGE, and CONFLICT.
s/t (2015/DISEASED AUDIO)
SLUDGE-METAL. Glacial-paced and absolutely crushing death-metal influenced sludge from Chicago. No stoner riffs here, just a lonely defeated trudge through the wastes of human life, one misery after the next. Current/ex members of SICK/TIRED, HATE, HARPOON, KUNGFU RICK, HIGH ON CRIME and THIN THE HERD. Vinyl is limited to 500 copies and includes a digital download card.
GRINDCORE. After nearly 15 years, 7 unreleased DISRUPT songs from the "Sauna" and "Warcollapse" session have now risen from the vault. Recorded in 1993 and re-mastered in 2006, Unrest Records now brings you this self titled DISRUPT masterpiece. These 7 blasts of hardcore will take you back in a time machine to the era when DISRUPT were the kings of crust. Limited colored, 180gr vinyl comes with gategold-jacket.
GRINDCORE. Their 1st (and only) full-length "unrest" contains 30 tracks of the most savage and powerful punk-inspired grindcore ever recorded. Influenced by E.N.T., CRUDE SS, MOB 47, DOOM and SIEGE, DISRUPT absolutely destroyed the deftly contrived major label hardcore of the time (and today) and set a standard matched by few punk bands since. "unrest" is a grating anarchist audio onslaught that will put you in the mood for rebellion. All tracks have been remastered supervised by DISRUPT! Vinyl includes a digital download card.
s/t (2014/MAN IN DECLINE)
HARDCORE. DISSEKERAD is a new band from Stockholm, Sweden with current-and ex-members of TOTALITÄR, AVSKUM, INSTITUTION, MAKABERT FYND, and others. As you would expect from that pedigree, they deliver no frills, traditional Swedish d-beat. The self-titled LP contains 11 songs that are firmly d-beat in execution with enough ingenuity and creativity to keep things sounding new. The North American version, issued by Man In Decline Records, was remastered which adds a sonic layer of punishing volume well-suited for the songs.
DISSENT AND REVOLT / DISSOLUTE
total harmonic distortion (2008/HIGH FIDELITY)
GRIND/DEATHCORE. Cleveland's DISSOLUTE bring a combined 45 years of experience along with a complex wall of sound erupting with a filthy dirty grinding overdrive, frenetic time changes, yet still with a perfect blend of straightforward old fashioned metal riffage while Madison's DISSENT AND REVOLT push the limits of technicality with quick, dynamic energy shifts full of almighty groove and pummeling aggression.
