you're nothing (2013/MATADOR)
POST-PUNK. Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen, Denmark's ICEAGE has only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, "new brigade", so compelling. But now, they're challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. "you're nothing", ICEAGE's sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, goth, hardcore and post-punk to even further extremes. It's overwhelming how many ways ICEAGE has found to write the short aggressive rock song. Vinyl version includes a digital download card.

the first (1994/EBULLITION)
HARDCORE. ICONOCLAST was the only band on Ebullition that was ever released because of a demo that was received in the mail. The ICONOCLAST demo sounded a lot like RORSCHACH.

A classic early '90s hardcore record from a band that existed side by side with East Coast legends like RORSCHACH, BORN AGAINST, MEREL and CURRENT.

They deliver 6 tracks of straightforward 80's hardcore with political and personal inyourface lyrics. This one is angry, dirty and straight. If you like the releases on No Way or Deranged Records you should give those german wankers a try!
of class and paper (2015/UNCLE M)

i hate this city (2011/CONSPIRACY)
DRONE-ROCK/AMBIENT. IGNATZ finds a perfect way to use the lo-fi recording and purposeful imperfections in order to sound direct. An album with the mysterious quality that serves it so well, and while Devens' songwriting isn't that of a mediocre modern-day bluesman, it's the sum of its parts that makes this noteworthy. This album's a curious document. Space folk drone, a blend of buzzing lo-fi murk, a stumbling buzz infused sprawl as spacious as it is clattery and chaotic. Beneath the drone and ambience there is always a blues element to IGNATZ. Limited pressing of 500 copies.
a war against you (2015/CENTURY MEDIA)
