die (2014/HARD ART)
HARDCORE. First up is the HUMAN ERROR "die" LP, an '80s US hardcore reissue of the final long lost demo by a criminally unknown Midwest band. Mean, raw, nasty, whatever you wanna call it, HUMAN ERROR formed in the small town of Iowa City in 1984, raged, then seemingly imploded into nothingness by the end of 1985, existing for only a little over 1 year. Before they broke up, they recorded their final demo, "die", perfectly encapsulating the vibe of small town hardcore depravity, sounding like a dirty and melted "the kids will have their say". This LP comes with a 12 page, full-color booklet with band history, flier scans, pictures, and more.
anger problems (2009/DESENSITIZED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Bakersfield's HUMAN MESS is back with another 5 tracks of crazed and destructive hardcore on this follow up to their new full-length on No Way Records. Even more raw and louder than ever, this one is sure to please fans of demo-era POISON IDEA.
uncaged animal (2008/NO WAY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Hailing from Bakersfield these punks blast out 5 tracks on their debut 7" entitled, "uncaged animal". That's exactly what this record is, lashing out with raw, pure, violent mayhem! To get close to what this sounds like, you could take early POISON IDEA and mix it with THE GERMS and you wont be too far away. This band also shares members with CONTAMINATORS and LOSER LIFE so you know they know what they're doing here.
are born (2007/ROCK BOTTOM)
PUNK-ROCK. One of St. Louis best kept secrets and amazing live band have come out with their debut release. This LP comes from a band that's been around for less than a year, but it already outclasses practically every group of veteran pop-punks THE HUMANOIDS are likely to play with. Failing to conform to any suffixed band affiliation, THE HUMANOIDS instead draw from a bevy of (somewhat) disparate punk influences such as DESCENDETNS, 7 SECONDS, SCREECHING WEASEL and DILLINGER FOUR. You'll get 8 songs in just under 15 min., will be some of the best time spent for your ears worth.
year of the snake (2009/ROCK BOTTOM)
PUNK-ROCK. THE HUMANOIDS are back with their follow up to the "are born" LP. Hailing from St. Louis, these 5 gentlemen bring you 2 songs and a cover of WIPERS' "youth of america". If you like a healthy dose of melody in your punk, this maybe the release for you! Think DAG NASTY, DESCENDENTS and NAKED RAYGUN and you will be on the right track.
s/t (2016/WARTHOG SPEAK)
HARDCORE. The vinyl debut from this Arizona powerhouse is a noisy, claustrophobic, and cacophonic amalgam of '90s discordant freedom, the '10s acceptance of noise-rock, and the current crop's ability to reshape hardcore into a slithering amoebic serpent. Akin to a mix of GROUNDWORK, RORSCHACH, WALLS and some other modern hardcore. Colored vinyl is limited to just 250 copies.
HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH
skullvalanche (2012/DEEP SIX)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH is back with their experimental 2nd full-length, "skullvalanche". Although they've always hinted at their brutal doom side on past releases, these 7 slabs of bulldozery plunged straight into the deep end. The result is a soundtrack to being buried in an avalanche of skulls. However, as a fastcore band, they made sure to blend their steamroller assault with the eye-watering speed for which they are known. Similar bands or musical genres: NO COMMENT, MAGRUDERGRIND and BASTARD NOISE.
HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / COLD WORLD
split (2013/DEEP SIX)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Boise's best blasters sound more like vintage HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH on this split. Soundwise more in the tradition of their earlier tracks like on their I ACCUSE split LP era. It's still fast power-violence influenced hardcore. They also throw in some sick, complex riffage. Viennas COLD WORLD's newer output is a bit more grind oriented like they've shown on their 7'' from a few years back as well as the EXTORTION. They bring an abrasive hardcore, thrash and power-violence attack to this release with plenty of speed and fury, taking influence from bands like SIEGE, NEANDERTHAL, CROSSED OUT and INFEST. Vinyl comes ith awesome gatefold-cover.
HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / I ACCUSE
split (2006/SOUND POLLUTION)
POWER-VIOLENCE/HARDCORE. I ACCUSE from Michigan tear it up with 11 songs of raging thrash-hardcore. All the catchy pissed off hardcore that made their debut 7" so great multiplied ten fold. HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH hail from the city Septic Death put on the map, Boise/Idaho. HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH unleash 15 songs of ultra fast stop on a dime thrash with the requisite amazing drummer. In the style of HERESY, NO COMMENT, SHORT HATE TEMPER, etc.. This is 100% ass kicking, blood boiling power-violence hardcore and thrash!
HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / RAID
split (2015/GIVE PRAISE)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. This split 7" pairs 2 of Boise, Idaho's gnarliest bands! HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH have been flying the flag for brutal, progressive fastcore for several years. Here they present 5 new ragers blending fastcore, grind and thrash. On the flip side, RAID count 2 members of '80s legends SEPTIC DEATH among their ranks, and continue in the latter's great skatecore tradition with 3 intense tracks. Get this split if you're ready to thrash!
HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH / TITANARUM
split (2011/GIVE PRAISE)
POWER-VIOLENCE/HARDCORE. HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH are no strangers in the grind and power-violence scene, with records on Sound Polltion, 625, Relapse. This collects a 2 song grindcore opus fueled with: blasting raw hardcore blaze-ups, fastcore tinges with breakneck speed, blast beat fury to make even the happiest folks frown. TITANARUM are here to spend their last recordings with this records. They play very solid hardcore, that has no need or call for any sugar-coating. Blasting, in-your-face, raw, angry and real hardcore.
drink'n a beer (2013/FOREFIELD)
THRASH-METAL. Break neck riffage and ripping vocal chords! HUMUNGUS revives everything pure about '80s thrash and trashes the rest. Their latest 7", "drink'n a beer", attacks your ears with 2 raucous anthems. Delivering old-school speed-metal with razor sharp execution, these maniacs sound as gnarly as the Richmond basements from which they spewed forth.
let go (2015/HOPELESS)
METALCORE. HUNDREDTH's 2011 full-length "let go" is being reissued along with the rest of the band's catalog on Hopeless Records.

Vinyl includes a digital download card.
revolt/resist (2015/NO SLEEP/HOPELESS)
METALCORE. The 2013 MCD "revolt" and 2014 MCD "resist" from HUNDREDTH are available together on one LP. These songs from Florida's melodic metalcore band sounds similiar to SHAI HULUD and EVERGREEN TERRACE. Colored vinyl includes a digital ndsownload card.
when will we surrender (2015/HOPELESS)
METALCORE. HUNDREDTH's 2010 debut full-length is now available again. HUNDRETH was spawned and fueled by righteous anger and packaged with their own brand of progressive/melodic hardcore. Every lyric is raw and heartfelt, and is written for a reason. The band was once told that they sound like the soundtrack to drowning, with a style that is both punishing and melodic, akin to SHAI HULUD, STRONGARM and LIFE IN YOUR WAY. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
