base desire (2011/CRICKET CEMETERY)
HARDCORE. Laying down a litany of anger against an unjust world, HUBRIS comes thrashing up from the lost landscapes of Washington, D.C. to herald a terrifying battle cry for the pound of flesh owed to the dispossesed. Blown out and brutal beyond description, this solemn mob hurls the razorwire along the spine of such other angry merchants as HIS HERO IS GONE, FROM ASHES RISE and TRAGEDY. "base desire", brings 4 HUBRIS howls that will punch you in the gut, and demand to know why you ever gave up the fight. Members of BITTER AMERICAN, NATURAL LAW, DEATHRATS and LOTUS FUCKER.
INDIE/POST-ROCK. "comfort" was written and recorded in the fall of 2010 between a series of long breaks due to careers and touring. The MLP will appeal to any fan of indie music in need of the warmth only provided by a great song. For fans of DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, MINUS THE BEAR. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
form und zweck (2016/SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA)
POST/NOISE-PUNK/NDW. "form und zweck2 is the 2nd full-length by these swabian band. Once more you'll get an excellent mixture of post/ndw-punk, wave and noise elements. HUMAN ABFALL's originality is its uncommon use of the german language and diction. The angry dadaistic and repetitive texts hide a subtile but direct critique of the society. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
tanztee von unten (2014/SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA)
POST/NOISE-PUNK/NDW. The four-piece HUMAN ABFALL (human waste) is the cream of the emerging punk-rock scene of Stuttgart in sourthern Germany. Beyond its mixture of post-punk, surf, wave and noise elements, HUMAN ABFALL's originality is its uncommon use of the german language and diction. The angry dadaistic and repetitive texts hide a subtile but direct critique of the society. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
HUMAN ANIMAL / WRECKAGE
split (2015/HEAD 2 WALL)
HARDCORE. Despite a collective "members of" list that includes such heavyweights as ABNEGATION, ANCHOR, BROTHERS KEEPER, BURIED ALIVE, IT DIES TODAY, SHOCKWAVE and more, it becomes clear immediately upon listening to these bands that they have no intention of resting on their laurels. On the contrary, Erie's HUMAN ANIMAL and Buffalo's WRECKAGE have taken their experience and used it to craft something new and unique, and even more intense than their impressive list of predecessors has prepared you for. Vinyl is limited to 500 copies and includes a digital download card.
HUMAN BODIES / LEATHER CHALICE
split (2015/BROKEN LIMB)
METAL/HARDCORE. Boston's HUMAN BODIES started as a recording project in 2013 and recorded its 1st demo as a two-piece using a computer interface and programmed drums. Since then the band has grown to include an ever evolving/revolving studio line-up. New Hampshire's LEATHER CHALICE is a one- man blackened punk project consisting of Jann from Ramlord. Heavily influenced by VENOM and DISCHARGE, hard drugs, depression and total defeat of the human spirit by modernism.
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!
