face up to it (2010/BOSS TUNEAGE)
HARDCORE. HERESY are one of the most influential UK hardcore bands ever to exist. From mid`90s the band were one of the leading lights of the rapidly expanding UK scene. HERESY's back catalogue has been totally re-mastered by Kalv Piper and Steve Baz Ballam from the band and "face up to it" is the 2nd of a trilogy of discographies. This was the bands one and only album of which over 10000 copies were pressed and sold throughout the world upon its original release in 1988. The album is almost unrecognizable from the original in its new, digitally re-mastered version sounding a hundred times better than it ever has done before and the best it will ever sound! Compiled with extensive sleeve notes from Kalv from the band, and contains dozens of unseen photos, tour posters and lyrics, this is a must for any HERESY fan.
HARDCORE. "dangerous" is the new full-length album from Finlands HERO DISHONEST. During their 11 years of existence they have put out 4 full-length releases. Like with their previous releases, "dangerous" continues to add new elements to the bands hardcore based sound. This time more midtempo and melodic influences have been introduced to the bands trademark hyperspeed thrash. During the 4 years that the record gradually took shape(between tours, jobs, illnesses and changing diapers), the band managed to come up with their most versatile collection of songs to date. The record also includes the CD version of the album.
komm vorbei (2009/FIN DU MONDE)
POST/NDW-PUNK. Berlin based HERPES take the best parts of NDW, synth-punk and garage and create their own blend of new-wave. Even if you can hear that they like bands as DAF, ABWÄRTS or HANS-A-PLAST, they manage to sound unique and fresh.
HERPES / HUNTED DOWN
split (2014/RECENTLY DECEASED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. HUNTED DOWN from Syracuse delivers 3 punches of inner turmoil. They take cues from classic '80s US hardcore but add Japanese influences from the likes of KURO or G-Zet?. HERPES, ex NO FUCKER serves some of their best material to date with raw ferocity. Hand-stamped center labels and featuring total drug fever artwork akin to the 1st HERPES 7", this record was released by the bands themselves in true d.i.y. spirit. Pit exists.
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)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This is raging! 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! On the CD you get on top the 7" as bonus-tracks with improved soundquality.
various states of disrepair (2012/1234 GO!)
PUNK-ROCK. This DoLP collecting 7"s and compilation tracks, with an additional 9 songs that were not on the original CD release, from one of the most heralded and influential bands of the '90s San Francisco scene. HICKEY was a genre-evolving punk band that combined melody and noise with politics, drugs and humor and released some of the most unique records. This DoLP includes 32 songs total - all songs have been remastered and taken from as many of the original tapes as were available. Comes in a gatefold-sleeve with booklet, a patch and includes a digital download card.
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!
