s/t (2013/SECRET VOICE)
HARDCORE. HESITATION WOUNDS is the combined sound of different backgrounds and 5 hours of songwriting. In 2012, the idea was to combine friends (some of whom had never met) from different bands and see what could happen in one afternoon. For fans of TOUCHE AMORE, THE HOPE CONSPIRACY and THE SUICIDE FILE. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
manegarmr (2013/SOUTHERN LORD)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. HESSIAN is the least forgiving unit from the Church Of Ra family of Belgian stalwarts that spawned other acts like AMEN RA and THE BLACK HEART REBELLION. "manegarmr" is a furious blizzard of black-metal violently crashing into a maelstrom of ultra metallic, dark hardcore that appeals to fans of CONVERGE, INTEGRITY, THE SECRET and AMEN RA.
HESSIAN / PALE CREATION
split (2012/MAGIC BULLET)
HARDCORE. Trancontinental in scope, this split pairs Belgium's HESSIAN with Cleveland's PALE CREATION. Unifying themes of wrath, scorn, and urgency permeate nine stunning full tracks. This release marks the debut of HESSIAN, the least forgiving unit from the Church Of Ra-family of Belgian stalwarts, and is marked by a storm looming beneath towering guitars and hectic drum patterns. The flipside features the latest from long-running Cleveland vets PALE CREATION. Fans of INTEGRITY and RINGWORM know what to expect from this quartet: dark, brooding, metallic hardcore shaped by unconventional twists at every turn. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE/METAL. Finally HEXIS recorded this 4-songs back in 2010. They only got released on CD and Tape so far. HEXIS are from Copenhagen, Denmark and playing grinding black-metal/post-hardcore for fans of CELESTE, SHORA, AMENRA etc.. This release comes on a one-sided LP with a nice etching on the b-side. Total pressing of 500 records.
x (2012/MAXIMUM DOUGLAS)
HARDCORE/METAL. HEXIS call themselves a Copenhagen based black-post-metal-hardcore band. The truth is that they deliver an ultraviolent music in the wake of great bands like CELESTE, SHORA or DEATHSPELL OMEGA. Even if the point isn't to produce the most inovative shit, HEXIS manages to blow everything on its way with an inimitable '90s style. No silence, no compromise.
XI (2014/ALERTA ANTIFASCISTA)
HARDCORE/METAL. HEXIS is a band from Copenhagen, Denmark, playing a mix of hardcore and doomy black-metal. The band has existed since 2010, but has already played 200 shows around the globe. Following their recent release of a full-length album, the band will be touring heavily all over the world. Thick 180gr vinyl comes with printed heavy innersleeve and heavy gatefold-cover.
HEXIS / REDWOOD HILL
HARDCORE/METAL. Intense blackened hardcore mob HEXIS have teamed up with harrowing sludge bruisers REDWOOD HILL for a split release that showcases 2 of Denmark’s most promising contemporary bands. HEXIS’ contribution, the absolutely terrifying "tenebris". A furious little number with black metal-esque bile and a palpable sense of anger. REDWOOD HILL dole out some slow motion punishment with the grinding "applewhite", resembling a much more evil version of CULT OF LUNA. This is the 1st new material the band have released since dropping their monolithic debut album "descender". The well designed picture-disk is limited to 500 copies.
HEY COLOSSUS & VAN HALEN TIME CAPSULE
eurogrumble vol.1 (2010/RIOT SEASON)
SLUDGE/KRAUT-ROCK. 5th album and a new 6 man line up. Almost seven years of flying under the radar doesn't seem to of bothered these stubborn souls. Now with the addition of THE VAN HALEN TIME CAPSULE they've set their sites on the lights. The majick and jam of Germany in the '70s, and all things dingy, claustrophobic and killer from WHITEHOUSE to THE HEADS. Channelling the no frills riffage of BLACK FLAG and MELVINS before drowning it under a sea of distorted feedback. This fella is a melting pot of libelous ideas and ludicrous intentions. Wrapped in a sleeve depicting Masonic images taken during the recordings. Limited edition of 500 copies!
into the silence of eternal sorrow (2003/SKULD)
CRUST-HARDCORE. "into the silence of eternal sorrow"is 10 songs that are bursting of energy and rage! Hints to AMEBIX and AXEGRINDER are obvious, at least the athmosfear they create. Songs are sometimes quite slow and heavy, they are also not afraid of using a keyboards, the rest is upbeat, harsh, metallic hardcore-punk with fe/male vocals. This is so much better than their last 7" called "loneliness". Production is top notch as is the cover art and the 20-pages full colour booklet. Awesome!
HIDDEN CHARMS, THE
square root of love (2006/ALIEN SNATCH)
PUNK-ROCK. And yet another excellent debut album. This time by the leading german purveyors of modern garage-punk, THE HIDDEN CHARMS. The band that includes DEAN DIRG drummer Boerge has learned their lessons well, sounding like they've found their own little alcove right between the musical trademarks of labels like Dirtnap or Rip Off. Raw, fast and hysteric they bait through the 14 tracks of this album, leaving a trail of pain and destruction behind. In just 15min. you'll get an extensive introduction to today's insane world of punk-rock and you even get to know all the cheesy details, those the SPITS, the CLONE DEFECTS and the REAL LOSERS were to scared to tell. Go destroy, buddies!
HIDDEN CHORD, THE
abegail vongetti (2005/LEVEL PLANE)
POST-ROCK. THE HIDDEN CHORD are an amazing band from Minneapolis, and are no stranger to Blood of the Young. Having previously been excited about their 7" and full-length we can only begin to prepare you for the masterpiece that is "abbegail vongetti". Having spent 3-4 times as much time in the studio on these 6 songs as the entire full-length last year, one can only imagine how involved these tracks are.
HARDCORE. HIDES are a three-piece hailing from San Francisco and, with this 8 track 7", infuse many different elements of hardcore, from speed to angular riffs and are rooted in the same scene that gave the world bands like LOMA PRIETA and COMADRE. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HIDING INSIDE VICTIMS
s/t (2013/ROTTEN TO THE CORE)
CRUST-HARDCORE/METAL. California crust-hardcore trio HIDING INSIDE VICTIMS follow up to their 2011 split 7" with SUICIDE STATE. A full scale assault of crushing, melodic crust that is as aggressive as it is eclectic. Three different vocalists trade raw-throated verses in this unique concoction of Swedish style d-beat, black-metal, thrash and straight-up epic doom. Limited to 500 copies.
great mother: holy monster (2013/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE/METAL. Italy's HIEROPHANT play blackened, metallic hardcore in the vein of HIS HERO IS GONE, DARKTHRONE, NEUROSIS, CATHARSIS and ENTOMBED. An otherworldly experience of dark, cold, grimy and almost dehumanized hardcore, the sound of HIEROPHANT is a mix between crust and sludgy metallic hardcore with a dark/oppressive/apocalyptic mood. For fans of OATHBREAKER, DEAFHEAVEN and TOMBS. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
peste (2014/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE/METAL. "peste" is the Italian hardcore band's 3rd full-length and their heaviest and most brutal offering yet, following up to "great mother: holy monster" and setting a new bar for the modern wave of death metal-influenced hardcore. HIEROPHANT have been making waves since their formation back in 2010. Vinyl version includes a digital download card and is limited to 600 copies.
