sacrifice (2007/ONRUSH/PER KORO)
HARDCORE. Massachusetts based hardcore outfit THE HOMEFRONT has quite a pedigree of previous bands: HAVE HEART, GUNS UP and VERSE. And if you've enjoyed the output of any those bands, you'll be greatly pleased with THE HOMEFRONT's debut offering, "sacrifice". THE HOMEFRONT play highly energetic and powerful modern-hardcore with a melodic twist - not unlike WITH HONOR or MODERN LIFE IS WAR and the above mentioned bands. The band managed to play over 100 shows in 2 years of their existence, with much more planned upon the near future. The handnumbered and limited to 525 copies contains 12 (2 additional bonus tracks) amazingly written songs sure to blow you away. [#001] Per Koro sublabel

worms and dirt (2012/A389)
HARDCORE. Ohio's HOMEWRECKER present their most vicious effort to date. "worms and dirt" is 9 tracks of dark, brooding metallic hardcore; think INTEGRITY meets APARTMENT213 meets SLAYER playing in the movie "hostel". Includes huge poster insert of artwork by Szymon Siech. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HOMEWRECKER / LOVE BELOW, THE
HARDCORE. California's favorite deviants THE LOVE BELOW return with 3 tracks of CURSED meets LEFT FOR DEAD style hardcore that pick up where their 7" left off. Ohio's HOMEWRECKER deliver 2 tracks best described as power-violence influenced hardcore with INTEGRITY moshparts and a vocal cameo by John Caution of WEEKEND NACHOS. Colored 7" includes a MP3 download card.
daydreaming about assholes (2010/KISS OF DEATH)
HARDCORE-PUNK. At 1st listen, THE HOMEWRECKERS sound like a more pissed-off version of THE DISTILLERS. This Brooklyn band's 7" is in-your-face and totally confrontational. "daydreaming about assholes" is vengeful and unapologetically spiteful, yet refreshingly honest. Cristy Road fronts the band and pulls influence from Keith Morris-era BLACK FLAG.
HOMINID / WAR HERO
split (2009/JUST SAY NO)
HARDCORE. Nearly a year in the making, this piece of wax is ready to get into your hot little hands and spin around and 33 and 45 rotations. This is a well done split release between 2 young bands from Western Canada. HOMINID are from Edmonton take sludge and thrash and slam it into something along the lines of PULLING TEETH and LEFT FOR DEAD. WAR HERO are from Squamish and thrash like CHARLES BRONSON and INFEST. Limited edition of 500 copies.
...y sembrarán los campos de odio (2012/CONTRASZT)
POST-HARDCORE/METAL. Since the beginning of the band in 2000, HONGO from Spain have been absorbing influences from all members previous bands (MADAME GERMEN, BLACK PANDA, NASHGUL etc.). With their newest effort "...y sembrarán los campos de odio" they consequently deliver a further development to their previous works. Creating a really intense dark atmosphere of epic post-metal/doom, you will find a encompassing trance sound on this record biased on the paths of bands such as NEUROSIS and ENVY, with a suffocated voice growling about a worried perspective of the human nature.
pit beast (2009/REALITY/I SCREAM)
HARDCORE. HOODS was founded in Sacramento in 1995 by Mike Hood and have grown into a hardcore institution. HOODS have released several albums on a number of independents and now the long-awaited new album "pit beast" is set for release. For fans of BLOOD FOR BLOOD, DEATH BEFORE DISHONOUR and TERROR.
horror rises from the tomb (2012/GREEN MIST)
PUNK 'N' ROLL. THE HOOKERS return from nearly 4 years of self-imposed exile to unleash their bloody brand of punk-metal on their rabid fans. "horror rises from the tombs", a vinyl-only 15-song blast of blood and guts rock 'n' roll is their loudest and most anthemic album to date.
HOPE CONSPIRACY, THE
death knows your name (2009/DEATHWISH)
HARDCORE. "death knows your name" is a stark and mesmerizing chapter in THE HOPE CONSPIRACY legacy. This album marks the 1st recorded appearance of Tim Cossar (GIVE UP THE GHOST, BARS) with HOPE CON, as well as the return of guitarist Neeraj Kane (THE SUICIDE FILE) to the song writing fold. 'death knows your name' is a stark and mesmerizing chapter in THE HOPE CONSPIRACY legacy. The 11 songs lunge and writhe with immeasurable emotion and inner turmoil like all great art does. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
the frailty of words (2012/BROKEN CIRCLE)
POST-HARDCORE. Before putting out 4 records on Trustkill, HOPESFALL was a relatively unknown band from the dirty south who played an atmospheric blend of POISON THE WELL-style melodic post-hardore/metal and beautiful prog. This 10 tracks are a mix of frenzied hardcore with deliberate screaming while suddenly changing it up with quiet melodies and inspiring singing. This LP is where it all began, the vinyl version of their debut full-length that was on the now-defunct DTS Records.
good good desperation (2009/TEE PEE)
PSYCHEDELLIC-ROCK. The nice thing about psychedelic-rock is that there's always going to be inspiration and an audience for it as long as we have people taking psychedelic drugs. It seems HOPEWELL going in a slightly different direction, opening up the songs, slowing some of them down, and incorporating more found sounds. Although the album is a bit of a mixed bag, the standouts still kick ass. Like psychedelics' formulas, psychedelic-rock will remain fresh. You just know who from who to buy it. HOPEWELL's got a good batch.
local state inertia (2013/JUMP START)
EMO-PUNK. HORACE PINKER released 8 records, appeared on over 30 compilations, 12 7"s. They continue to defy the trends and release records with thoughtful lyrics and powerful music that cannot be pinned down to a simple category or genre. This is the 2011 full-length now available for the 1st time on vinyl. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
abarognosis (2012/KING OF THE MONSTERS)
HARDCORE. HORDES vinyl debut features 10 tracks of bludgeoning and merciless hardcore. The new breed of ugly, downtuned power-violence is upon us. Limited to 330 copies on black vinyl.
second assault (2012/RISE ABOVE)
HEAVY-METAL/ROCK. Much anticipated 2nd album from this hotly tipped young band. Nurtured in the same fertile '70s rock-rich soil that gave us WITCHCRAFT and GRAVEYARD comes HORISONT. "second assault" hails back the point in the early to mid '70s when heavy-metal was just beginning to be defined; the time when SCORPIONS and a fledgling JUDAS PRIEST were fusing the colossal riffs of BLACK SABBATH, ZEPPLIN with the soulful virtuosity of HENDRIX and DEEP PURPLE. Utterly infectious, soulful and driving heavy-rock for fans of the golden age. This is an album that is worthy of sitting alongside the true greats of the genre. Limited gatefold vinyl edition
HORRIBLE CROWES, THE
elsie (2011/SIDE ONE DUMMY)
INDIE/EMO-PUNK. Most of you know Brian Fallon as the frontman for THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM, an act who started out in Jersey basements and slowly built their way up to headlining New York's Music Hall. Despite the success Fallon has had with his main band he's always loved decidedly less rocking acts such as the AFGHAN WHIGS and TOM WAITS. THE HORRIBLE CROWES - his new side-project alongside longtime friend Ian Perkins - is his lounge-friendly tip of the hat to the acts who have shaped another side of his musical vision. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
