split (2014/DIRT CULT)
POP-PUNK. IRON CHIC - Fucking fantastic existential, anthemic, and melodic punk-rock. This is their 1st release since their well received "the constant one" LP. Ex-members of LATTERMAN, SMALL ARMS DEALER and more. One of these songs is a b-side from "the constant one" too. LOW CULTURE - released their debut "screens" on Dirtnap Records. Features members of MARKED MAN and SHANG-A-LANG, and sounds pretty much like a cross between the 2 bands, with the former's distinct songwriting style mashed together with the latter's tighter, cleaner performances. These recordings are the results of the band's 1st trip into a pro recording studio, sounding cleaner but no less effective than past material. Vinyl comes with download card.
we are motorpunks (2015/DOOMENTIA)
METAL-PUNK. After countless demos and chaotic performances in squats and sleazy bars IRON FIST from Los Angeles, California finally got their 1st proper full-length.

DOOM-METAL. After releasing a 3 song demo in 2012 Viennas IRON HEEL are back with their 1st full-length album - 5 songs - 45min. - one title: "book of grief". Huge, epic riffs meet sludge-infested rhytms that will drag you to the black pits while retaining a heavy sense of groove. The powerful vocals are full of blues-oriented harmonies but will also lash out with hoarse growls if the song calls for it. Lyrics-wise IRON HEEL keep it classic: they clear the forest of corpses and keep the sleepwalkers at bay while you can listen to the death rattle of walled in monks. Join them for tales of ritual mummification, hungry ghosts and open graves. Spread the gospel of doom! For Fans of SERPENT VENOM, GOATSNAKE or ST. VITUS.

white glove test (2013/IRON LUNG/DE GRAANREPUBLIEK)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Slushat' comrades! "white glove test" is IRON LUNG's 3rd studio album and follow-up to 2007's wildly successful "sexless//no sex". What started out being the slow industrial concept album and pointedly left-field endeavor turned into a frantically paranoid and claustrophobic power-violence masterpiece complete with water tight stop/start compositions leading the way to crushing sludge bits intermingled with blistering hardcore pummel. It's what adults of the Cold War era would refer to as "your typical kill-your-mother-kill-your-father type stuff". US-version comes with gatefold-cover.
HARDCORE. Since 2009, IRON MIND has been ruling the Melbourne, Australia underground with a heavy sound that marries the '80s and '90s sounds of New York hardcore.

silent sins (2010/PANIC)
