unorthodox (2011/BITTER MELODY)
HARDCORE. "unorthodox" is the now-classic LP from '90s NYHC heavyweights INDECISION with lyrical content that mostly tackled the issue of religion over straightforward, heavy hardcore. "bitter melody" has remastered the recording from the original tapes for the 1st time for this release on LP. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE
the newest youth rebellion (2002/INSOLITO)
POWER-VIOLENCE/POST-HARDCORE. The debut full-length from this South Carolina band featuring ex-members of PREVAIL. This band fuses together experimental sounds with the extremities of noisy discordant hardcore. Powerful, pissed, and chaotic, they sound like a cross between THE LOCUST and DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. Features guest tracks by Erik Wood of MAN IS THE BASTARD, and a remix track by Neil Burke (BORN AGAINST, and MEN'S RECOVERY PROJECT).
live at roadburn 2014 (2015/BURNING WORLD)
DOOM/STONER-METAL. Recorded at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in Tilburg in front of a crowd of 600 Chicago's blackened noise nihilists INDIAN are now augmented with an even keener sense of harsh noise, all the trademark elements of Indian's sound have been refined to reach new lows of powerful and punishing anguish. This is the opposite of easy listening. Limited edition of 300 copies on pitch black vinyl includes a CD version.
the unquiet sky (2013/SEVENTH RULE)
DOOM/STONER-METAL. INDIAN’s mix of slow heavy rhythms and tempo sensitive noise create a style that is raw and pure as punk, but the sound is definitely some of the heaviest, darkest metal to be heard. It fits nicely with efforts from ELECTRIC WIZARD, EYEHATEGOD, UFOMAMMUT and anyone else making progressive super-heavy stoner-doom metal. An absolutely essential record from a band to expect great things of, this release puts INDIAN’s long out-of-print and frantically sought after debut back in print, and packaged in a beautiful gatefold format. Vinyl includes a digital ownload card.
hidden arithmetic (2011/ADAGIO 830)
SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Limited (300 copies) re-press version of "hidden arithmetic" from emo pioneers INDIAN SUMMER. You'll get 9 songs including unreleased material. Includes silk-screened covers, 4 printed inserts and small poster.
s/t (2012/ADAGIO 830)
SCREAMO-HARDCORE. This record contains the songs from the long out-of-print 7" that came out decades ago and still remains as a timeless classic and genre-defining record for mid '90s emo. While band members moved on, forming new bands and playing music in different forms, INDIAN SUMMER is still a band that people connect to memories and great times. The songs for the repress got slightly remastered and pressed on a one-sided LP for a better sound on crystal clear vinyl with a silkscreened b-side. The record is packed in heavy thick picture disc sleeves.
s/t (2013/TOXIC POP)
GOTHIK/POST-PUNK. INDUSTRIAL PARK hail from Portland and play gothic-rock/post-punk in the tradition of bands like SISTERS OF MERCY, BAUHAUS, and SLOWDIVE. This record would have fit very well among the early 4AD releases. This debut 7" is just a tease of what's to come. Expect great things from this duo. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
s/t (2008/OUR PRIDE)
HARDCORE. Formed in 2007 in Los Angeles, INERT came together to play a mosh-inducing style of hardcore that crosses the styles of bands like NO WARNING and PANIC. This limited, colored 7" has 6 songs and features guest vocals from Nick of PIECE BY PIECE and TEROR.
II (2009/GRITA O MUERTE)
CRUST-HARDCORE. This is the 2nd full-length from INFÄME. Former members of TOTALICKERS, DISFACE and other barcelone kids team up with 11 tracks of crust 'n' rolling hardcore that combines elements of the more usual espania crust assaults mixed up with Japanese d-beat but with the addition of more melodies and raw crude punk-rock influences. Another good spanish hardcore record!
sonic punishment (2008/625)
GRINDCORE. Some of the most ferocious Scandanavian grindcore you have ever heard. Seriously unrelenting blastcore that puts to shame the current tech-grind trends. 10 songs of total obliteration that recalls the classics of grind - includes a brutal UNSEEN TERROR cover.
INFERNAL DIATRIBE / SLOW CHILDREN
split (2015/PINE HILL)
HARDCORE. INFERNAL DIATRIBE is the longest running hardcore from Dover. Formerly known as THE NASTY, the band recently had to change their name to avoid confusion. This release features new recordings of 4 old-school "nasty" songs. Previous versions of these songs were from 2005 and 2009 and were very poorly recorded. These new versions breathe well-needed fresh air into these tracks. For fans of MENTAL, CHAIN OF STRENGTH. SLOW CHILDREN is a melodic hardcore-punk band from southern California. Features 3 tracks off their latest full-length "prevalent emotional distress". Suitable for fans of A WILHELM SCREAM or STRIKE ANYWHERE. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
INFERNAL STRONGHOLD / PIZZA HI FIVE
split (2011/SIT & SPIN)
BLACK-METAL/GRINDCORE. Philly black-thrash champions INFERNAL STRONGHOLD lay down 3 pulverizing tracks on the a-side. Definately a great follow up to the "godless hoise" full-length. Fast as hell evil as fuck and downright brutal as it gets! Keepin up the speed is PIZZA HI FIVE from Ohio. They're laying down 8 super fast mincing blasts sure to damage the ear drums.
7 spar (2013/DISTORT REALITY)
CRUST-HARDCORE. Latest 7-song release from this well-regarded Swedish crust band. As for the music, if you were into their earlier stuff you'll no doubt continue to be on board with this - straight up TOTALITÄR worship, executed absolutely perfectly with huge production. Simply amazing hardcore similar to DESPERAT, HERÄTYS, SKITKIDS or INSTITUTION. Fans of those mentioned bands won't be disappointed. Massive, moving Swedish crust-hardcore.
POST-PUNK. Forming in 2010 from past and present members of THE DIAMOND SEA, DEEP HEART and CIRCUITS, INFINITE VOID from Melbourne, Australia play a gritty and melodic tangle of dark, edgy post-punk and '90s indie-rock driven by brilliant guitar interplay and infectious girl/ guy vocals. The album is a must for fans of WIPERS, SLEATER KINNEY, SONIC YOUTH, but also for those into newer post-punk bands such as THE ESTRANGED, TERRIBLE FEELINGS, ARCTIC FLOWERS and alike. All records come on thick 180gr in a thick recycled cardboard cover.
INDIE-POP. "harm", the Topshelf debut from Brooklyn-by-way-of-Boston's INFINITY GIRL is rooted in shoegaze - but is less wall-of-sound and more fuzzy dream pop. For fans of THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART or THE PIXIES. Limited edition of 500 copies.
