eat shit, listen to horrible music (2010/IMPEDANCE)
PUNK-ROCK. The story of this magnificent vinyl LP can be traced back to 1982, when 3 puny immigrant children from Punchbowl, Sydney Australia decided to embark on a weird yet superb journey of punk, metal, pop and garage shenanigans. Armed to the teeth with humour, self-mockery, irreverence, unique musical techniques, and (perhaps most importantly) fantastically powerful yet tuneful ditties. Due to extremely strong demand, Impedance Records are presenting the said album, "eat shit, listen to horrible music" on vinyl - it's limited to a run of 1000 only.

there's honey in the soil so we wait for the till (2013/DEATHWISH)
FOLK/INDIE/ACOUSTIC-ROCK. HARM WÜLF is the bedroom musical entity of G. Hirsch, known for his moving lyrical and vocal contributions in Philadelphia's BLACKLISTED. HARM WÜLF's debut album is a collection of songs that touch upon the dark and rustic themes of solitude and aging disappointment. Inspired by a wide range of artists: from the tranquil resonance of LOW, rhythmic acoustic strumming of STRENGTH TO JOY, to the insular, grotesque Americana of FLANNERLY O'CONNOR. Most times sparse and austere, others apocalyptically orchestrated, HARM WÜLF has the sound of something long since missing. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARMONIA & ENO ´76
tracks and traces (2009/GRÖNLAND)
KRAUTROCK/ELECTRONIC. "tracks and traces" has a somewhat unusual birth cycle. After 2 albums, the pioneering German electronica/krautrock band HARMONIA had already discordantly split up when contacted by BRIAN ENO to have a jam. The trio reunited for some four-track recording with ENO, the results of which then sat in a vault for 20 years. (It was never intended for release, after all.) It was 1st edited and issued in 1997; this edition gives those tracks a remix and remaster and is considered by its creators to be definitive. "tracks and traces" is an exploration of inner and outer space that sounds as fresh and relevant now as it did 33 years ago.
HARDCORE/METAL. The evolution of HARMS WAY continues with "blinded". These 5 track are crusher from start to finish and are the heaviest and most adventurous so far - all of it fueled by a vitriol and pain that makes them stronger than all. Vinyl version includes a digital download card.
isolation (2011/CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES)
HARDCORE/METAL. Over the span of three 7"s and a LP, the sound of Chicago's HARMS WAY evolved from power-violence to trash-styled hardcore and on "isolation", the band's 2nd full-length, they throw sludgy elements of EYEHATEGOD into the mix while still delivering breakdown-laden jams people have come to expect. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
no gods No Masters (2010/CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES)
HARDCORE/METAL. HARMS WAY's "no gods no masters" 7" features 5 songs from this up and coming Chicago hardcore/metal band. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
reality approaches (2013/ORGANIZED CRIME)
HARDCORE/METAL. Take the ultra-violence of Clockwork Orange, mixed with the scathing, nihilistic and punishing sounds of early CARCASS and you'll start to get the idea of what HARMS WAY is trying to achieve. Continuing the mayhem that began with their 1st two 7" releases. "reality approaches" (originally released in 2010) is chaos incarnate played along a soundtrack of chainsaw guitars and machine gun drums. It's a raw, primal and devastating outlook on life coupled with an apocalyptic and furious sound that will leave the listener completely unsettled. Colored (white) vinyl includes a digital download card.
METAL/HARDCORE. "rust" is the new album from HARMS WAY. Brutal and meticulously refined, "rust" brilliantly combines industrial repetition (think GODFLESH), metal attack (think SEPULTURA, HELMET, CELTIC FROST) and hardcore aggression, showing that HARMS WAY has emerged from the wreckage of past genres as the new, high watermark of heavy in contemporary aggressive music. Opener "infestation" stomps with machine-like precision before plunging into a depressing sonic dirge, while songs like "law of the land" and others introduce guitar and electronic-driven atmospherics into the arsenal. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
dead broke in the usa (2014/PIRATES PRESS)
OI/STREET-PUNK. From the remnants of Bay-Area bands THE BURDENS and ROMEO'S DEAD comes the brilliant new street-punk band HARRINGTON SAINTS.

Colored vinyl is limited to 500 copies and includes a digital download card.
