book of grief (2013/PER KORO/I.H.R.)
DOOM-METAL. After releasing a 3 song demo in 2012 Viennas IRON HEEL are back with their 1st full-length album - 5 songs - 45min. - one title: "book of grief". Huge, epic riffs meet sludge-infested rhytms that will drag you to the black pits while retaining a heavy sense of groove. The powerful vocals are full of blues-oriented harmonies but will also lash out with hoarse growls if the song calls for it. Lyrics-wise IRON HEEL keep it classic: they clear the forest of corpses and keep the sleepwalkers at bay while you can listen to the death rattle of walled in monks. Join them for tales of ritual mummification, hungry ghosts and open graves. Spread the gospel of doom! For Fans of SERPENT VENOM, GOATSNAKE or ST. VITUS. Vinyl comes with great artwork, thick inside-out cover, black innersleeve, lyricsheet and includes a digital download card. [PK #066]

white glove test (2013/IRON LUNG/DE GRAANREPUBLIEK)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Slushat' comrades! "white glove test" is IRON LUNG's 3rd studio album and follow-up to 2007's wildly successful "sexless//no sex". What started out being the slow industrial concept album and pointedly left-field endeavor turned into a frantically paranoid and claustrophobic power-violence masterpiece complete with water tight stop/start compositions leading the way to crushing sludge bits intermingled with blistering hardcore pummel. It's what adults of the Cold War era would refer to as "your typical kill-your-mother-kill-your-father type stuff". US-version comes with gatefold-cover.
HARDCORE. Since 2009, IRON MIND has been ruling the Melbourne, Australia underground with a heavy sound that marries the '80s and '90s sounds of New York hardcore. This self-titled release is the band's 2nd full-length and is 10 tracks of dance floor-maneuvering hardcore. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
silent sins (2010/PANIC)
HARDCORE. Derived from the concrete slabs of Chicago, IRON RAIN formed in 2009 as a musical outlet for aggressive songs and thoughtful dissection of American culture. IRON RAIN is energetic and interesting, heavy while thoughtful, catchy but devastating. IRON RAIN is carrying the torch of raw, pissed-off hardcore with a direction for its anger that the bands of the '90s hardcore scene put into motion. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

s/t (2014/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. Debut 7" from this Texas outfit that shares members of GLUE and INSTITUTE. Although they share members, they do not share sounds. IRON YOUTH is a massive, nasty, sweat-filled, stinking sock of ugly, bottom-feeding hardcore. Think NO TREND if they were more suicidal and were bred on a diet of early '80s US hardcore. Limited edition of 300 copies.
Die Finnen, die schon eine Unzahl an Releases vorzuweisen haben, legen hier mal wieder eine feine Grindcore-Veroeffentlichung an den Tag. 'Driven' beinhaltet 3 neue Kracher und zwei grandiose Coverversionen von LARM und BATHORY. Ist nur zu hoffen, dass die Band mit diesem Release mal aus der zweiten Reihe der Grindbands heraustritt. verdient haben sie es allemal!!
negative dots (2010/P. TRASH)
PUNK-ROCK. Under the banner IRRITONES former HATEPINKS, AGGRAVATION and HOLY CURSE members got together to form a new band. On their 1st full-length they deliever 10 bullets of their genuine oupupo-styled punk-rock that sounds like a well-shaken Martini of HATEPINKS vocals with a lethal cyanide dose of spastic '77 punk. Limited to 300 editon comes in a carboard sleeve.
penis romantique (2012/P. TRASH)
PUNK-ROCK. Album seconde by French punks IRRITONES is another érection du LP. Minimalistic, driving, wired and hyped up. A celebration of hedonistic primitivism packed into 10 meldodic and stripped-down songs with driving bass lines, minimal guitar work and Olivier's very own sick poetry franglais. The cover versions ABWÄRTS' '80s hit "computerstaat" and French '70s Punk band's STRYCHNINE's "lache moi" perfectly match the style and sound of the whole record. The sound of the IRRITONES creeps out out of le cadavre of a dead underground.
IRRITONES / NXD
split (2010/SPASTIC FANTASTIC)
PUNK-ROCK/HARDCORE. You'll get 2 new songs of Frances top new bubblegum punk-rock outfit the IRRITONES with HATEPINKS and AGGRAVATION members. Awesome '70s influenced punk, quite minimalistic, sometimes very melodic, but also very refreshing. NXD like it more radical with their weird mix between '70s garage-punk and '80s hardcore in the veins of DEAN DIRG or CIRCLE JERKS.
holy tears (2008/IPECAC)
