INTERNAL AFFAIRS / LAST NERVE
SXE-HARDCORE. Hardcore heavyweights INTERNAL AFFAIRS (featuring ex- and current CARRY ON, PIECE BY PIECE, STAND AND FIGHT) clash with Sydneys own LAST NERVE to produce this uncompromising split. The split consists of 6 songs, 3 from each band. Both bands feature 2 new songs as well as a re recorded song from their demos.
mental hygiene (2014/625)
GRINDCORE. Australia's answer to EXCRUCIATING TERROR deliver a monstrous barrage of head-erupting grindcore on their debut full-length. Invoking the roots of NAPALM DEATH's "from enslavement to obliteration", this three-man grind unit will pummel even the most hardened grind fan.
GRINDCORE. Punishing guttural grindcore from Australia not unlike EXCRUCIATING TERROR and IMMORTAL FATE. Some of the most brutal grind since INSECT WARFARE. So punishing that this requires multi-logo sleeve prints.
INTERNAL ROT / MANHUNT
GRINDCORE. Brisbane Australia's MANHUNT play power-violence with a level of ferocity and misanthropy matched by few bands. Not to be outdone, Melbourne's head-erupting blasters INTERNAL ROT kick down some new songs in anticipation of their debut LP in 2014. A great document of the ferocity coming out of Australia: for all you posers out there, get ready to fucking wake in fright.
INTHESHIT / PRIAPUS
split (2014/GIVE PRAISE)
GRINDCORE. INTHESHIT hail from Boston and is really best described as solid and precision based grindcore. Fast in all the right parts, as blasting fury echoes from the drums. Held together by eerie sections of growls and screams. PRIAPUS weigh in from North Carolina and bring a technical metal tinged grindcore to the table. Combining blast beats over metallic fused deathgrind, layered with growled and scream vocals to create a unique sound.
PROGRESSIVE/POST-HARDCORE. The amazing 2nd full-length. With favorites such as "running into walls" and "william", this is the record that defined their sound. A masterpiece. Colored (translucent blue) vinyl version includes a digital download card.

PROGRESSIVE/POST-HARDCORE. INTO ANOTHER from New York became one of the most respected bands of their day in the early '90s. They caused heads to turn with their melodies sounding of post-medieval bards with guitars and a heaviness not heard elsewhere, while Richie Birkenhead’s unique lyrical genius pours over. These 9 songs will lead you to a side of life you’ve been ignoring, and will keep you wanting more. INTO ANOTHER offer some therapy in a twisted world of confusion, anger and menace. This is their 1st full-length release. Post- and progressive-hardcore that really defies description. Colored (gold/RSD 2012 edition is limited to 500 copies). Colored (translucent blue) vinyl version includes a digital download card.
INTO IT. OVER IT.
intersections (2013/TRIPLE CROWN)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. On his sophomore salute, INTO IT. OVER IT. songsmith Evan Weiss seems to be taking cues from his friend (and occasional bandmate) Mike Kinsella of OWEN. Full band in hand, the songs remain geared toward his solo show. The result is just familiar enough to be referential without becoming derivative - Weiss’ deft, rambling fingerpicked patterns bear a strong influence of Mike Kinsella's OWEN, though INTO IT. OVER IT. is far more melodic and compact.
INTO IT. OVER IT.
proper (2011/NO SLEEP)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. Evan Weiss (aka INTO IT. OVER IT.), however, at 26 years and with his debut full-length album, "proper", has attained level of depth in his songwriting not seen by most artists throughout their entire careers. Having written, recorded and played with an eclectic pedigree of artists, INTO IT. OVER IT.'s culmination of experiences with said bands have stylistically fused together for the grand effort that is Weiss' debut. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
INTO IT. OVER IT.
twelve towns (2011/TOPSHELF)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. This is the culmination of INTO IT. OVER IT.'s "twelve towns" series. Evan teamed up with 6 other artists to release 6 separate split 7"s each limited to 500. Now that all of them are sold-out they are available completely remastered and in one location and includes a bonus track that wasn't part of the series. The vinyl version of this release will come with 5 bonus acoustic tracks which were recorded as a separate session. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
INTO IT. OVER IT. / KOJI
split (2010/NO SLEEP)
INDIE/EMO-ROCK. Evan Thomas Weiss (INTO IT. OVER IT.) and Andrew Koji Shiraki (KOJI) have made something "ten years overdue". The 2 prolific singer/songwriters, who have been friends for years, entered a studio to record 10 new songs (5 songs each) with the help of engineer Mark Michalik (The Swellers, Fireworks, Stay Ahead Of The Weather). This split vinyl LP release, featuring a tirade of guest musicians from bands such as LA DISPUTE, CASTEVET, CLOUDMOUTH and more. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
la caza (2008/LA VIDA ES UN MUS)
HARDCORE. Originally released as a tour-edition and sold immediately during their USA tour INVASION's new album is finally out. 6 sick tracks of claustrophobic hardcore that updates the traditional UK anarcho sound, and the experimental Japanese hardcore of the early '80s. This item is dirty and un-easy. The raw production makes the crazy vocals full of echo and delay the main focus but they are backed up by a steamroller of overdrive driven noise guitar and manic drumming with tons of feedback joining the tracks together, managing to get you on edge for the entire duration of the record wondering what's gonna happen when it is over. This release is more proof that even a limited style like hardcore can provide head scratching bands in this day and age.
s/t (2007/LA VIDA ES UN MUS)
HARDCORE. INVASION from Barcelona bring us 10 tracks of claustrophobic, intense, noisy and chaotic hardcore. Influenced equally by DISCHARGE and old Italian and Japanese bands their debut full-length is a mix of pure anguish and anger. Their sound is dirty and direct and the vocal delivery is extremely crazy, using delay and echo effects that together with a primal recording and production create an atmosphere of pure desperation.
hela världen brinner (2010/NY VAG)
PUNK-ROCK. After a couple great records as the LOST PATROL BAND the band decided 2 years ago to change both language and direction. Choosing the name INVASIONEN and going for a sound more grounded in swedish music tradition. With influences from the late '70s Swedish punk scene mixed with early new wave sounds and good old fashioned rock 'n' roll they've created a sound that is both old-school, familiar and new. "hela världen brinner" is 13 songs about growing up and dealing with the rules that both we ourselves and the world around us has set. Both more political and personal before the lyrics have a nerve that is most unique.
s/t (2014/TEMPORARY RESIDENCE)
POST-ROCK. INVENTIONS is the new band formed by longtime friends, tourmates, and labelmates Matthew Cooper of ELUVIUM, and Mark T. Smith of EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY. INVENTIONS exceeds all expectations by discarding them from the get-go. They have created their own tiny, wondrous corner of the world, one with ever-changing sounds and colors. Across 8 songs the duo explore the delicate and disturbing - and virtually everything in-between - with majestic abandon. It's the kind of beauty and brilliance that only masters of their craft can accomplish when all egos and expectations are cast aside in pursuit of the splendor of sound. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
