SLUDGE/HARDCORE. This record is going to destroy many skulls, because it's brutal. NEGATIVE STANDARDS are not to be fucked with. You can’t put their sound in a box at all, but listening to them is like getting your head punched in by a mammoth fist. Raging aggressive hardcore with harsh vocals that slows down from time to time. You can hear the Portland influence, but they are unique!

the nomad sessions (2009/16OH)
HARDCORE. NEIGHBORHOOD THREAT boast former members of bands like THREATENER and LIFE SET STRUGGLE and bring 6 fast-paced, early '80s sounding hardcore songs in the vein of NEGATIVE FX and other classic Boston bands!
HARDCORE. On their 1st LP, NEKROMANTIKER continues to refine their fucking harsh noise-hardcore style, mixing the song construction and style of classic noise heroes like CONFUSE and GAI with the sonic brutalities and effects-laden idealism of EXIT HIPPIES, FILTH MILITIA etc.. The entire album feels like the finely crafted product of a band in their prime. Mixing mid-tempo jammers with short, fast, loud hardcore shockers, straight-forward drums with obtuse, experimenting harsh noise guitars, their highest-fidelity recording yet. The result is an excellent genre exercise in noisy hardcore that manages to bring a new perspective and unique personality to the canon.

"life is a grave & i dig it" with 13 tracks of soul stirringly eerie rock 'n' roll. This is a return to the raw, driving sound of early classics like "return of the loving dead". Nice looking picture-disk vinyl.
s/t (2014/NEGATION/SM MUSIK)
DOOM/STONER-METAL. NELLY OLSEN is a doom power-trio from Leipzig, Germany. Founded in 2011, these guys have put a lot of effort in producing a massive riff based stoner/doom-metal mixture, that expands the usual pentatonic/blues-scheme by blending epic melodies and one or another post-rock-part. NELLY OLSEN unleash more creepier and isane riffs to prove these guys are worth giving a damn about. Light up your favourite bong then worship and bow down to NELLY OLSEN. A power trio with balls and menace to match.

sooner or later (2013/K)
PUNK-ROCK. In Portland, in 1978, a radical form of artistic expression some refer to as punk or new wave was beginning to take shape, and at the heart of this legendary movement was the powerful all-girl punk group the NEO BOYS. Though they were an active band for just 5 years (1978-82), they forged a place for women in the growing punk scene, and redefined gender roles in the '80s movement of rock 'n' roll. This is a comprehensive double LP collection of NEO BOYS recordings from 1977-1982, including the long out-of-print '80 7" (released on Greg Sage's Trap Records), and '82 self-released 7" "crumbling myths". "sooner or later" also contains recordings, early demos and live sessions that have never before been available to the public.
idiot circus (2013/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. On their 3rd 7", Bay-Area's NEO CONS continue to bust out raging rock 'n' roll-influenced hardcore-punk that takes cues from classic Midwestern bands like ZERO BOYS. "idiot circus" featuring 6 high energy hardcore-by-death stompers and their loudest, nastiest recording yet. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE-PUNK. There's an undeniable and infectious NEW BOMB TURKS and ZERO BOYS hook in Jason's snarl (from 86 MENTALITY), and it suits the '80 midwest hardcore steeped in KBD sensibilities just fine. Stripped down and simple hardcore-punk; 6 songs of piss and vinegar hardcore-punk. You will find nothing fancy crammed into the next minutes, you will also realize that you often don't need anything fancy.
