if you're not now.. (2002/DERANGED)
SXE-HARDCORE. Featuring ex-members of CHOKEHOLD, LEFT FOR DEAD. SWARM and HAYMAKER, OUR WAR come at you with some pissed off straight-edge hardcore from the frozen wastelands of Canada. Songs about staying true, fallen friends, failed promises, and hardcore pride set to a rumble of brutal hardcore and screaming vocals. Straight-edge, straight-edge, straight-edge.
a heated display (2013/PAINKILLER)
HARDCORE. The final recordings from OUT COLD. These tracks were begun in 2005 shortly after the release of their "goodbye cruel world" album, but after a long and tumultuous ride, were not finished until 2012. After the untimely passing of long-time singer Mark Sheehan, the master tapes fell to the wayside, presumed to be lost. The session was rescued from the abyss and Kevin Mertens, who sang on the very 1st OUT COLD album from '94, was brought in to record vocals on this platter, yet completing another OUT COLD album of pure blistering hardcore. Half of the session's 28 tracks are represented here - 14 songs - in the typical no-frills hardcore fashion that OUT COLD perfected over their career.
OUT COLD / BILL BONDSMEN
HARDCORE. This 7" sounds like it could have been recorded in some fucko's basement in Maumee, Ohio in 1983. OUT COLD treat us to 3 new tracks that have their patent, no holds barred 1981-style Massachusetts hardcore, tainted with the early sounds of the Midwest. If that isn't a geographic train wreck why the hell are you still buying punk rock records in 2007? BILL BONDSMEN compliment the driving sounds of OUT COLD with 2 new tracks kicking their '80's retro hardcore sound. One of these is a ripping tribute to the pioneers of the Japanese hardcore scene. This wax is so tough it busted the metal stamper 800 copies into the pressing.
just us (2012/REAPER)
HARDCORE. Atlanta's OUT CROWD started in the winter of 2010. While the demo encapsulated a raw, late-'80s youth-crew style hardcore, "just us" is musically and lyrically a major step up from the demo. Get ready to dive, skank and stomp with "just us". Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
OUT OF ORDER
open prison (2008/ÜBERFALL)
PUNK-ROCK. Formed 1980 by British and German punks in Herford/Germany, OUT OF ORDER was one of the 1st punk bands from the Westphalian province beside AHEADS or NOTDURFT. After 2 chaotic years and a 7", an LP and loads of gigs with ZK, HASS or the UK SUBS, they called it a day. Now their early '80s UK punk with a slight taste of Oi! is back to vinyl. The record comes with new artwork, and besides the original "open prison“ album from 1981 it contains tracks from the 7" and previously unreleased demos. In addition there‘s a lyrics sheet with extensive band history! If your into early german pogo-punk get your hands on this limited (500 copies) item!
OUT ON A LIMB
POST-PUNK/NEW-WAVE. "drowned" is the 1st full-length of this band from Chemnitz/Leipzig. Complex groovy with wave-guitar sounds and nice melodies and a lot of energetic post-punk influences like WIPERS, JOY DIVISION and THE ESTRANGED. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
OUT WITH A BANG
Few beers left but... (2007/ CRIMINAL IQ)
TRASH-PUNK. This 2nd release by the italian scumbags are offensive as hell, stupid, inept, asinine, and wrong in every possible way. These jagoffs have quite possibly released the best record of 2006 with their debut and this new one hit in the same way. Fast, pissed off, drug addled, alcohol abusing, foul-mouthed, numbskull hardcore-punk - smut from a few guys. Are those jerks the re-incarnation of GG Allin? Who knows and who cares - this record kills all!
OUT WITH A BANG
Love my life (2007/FASHIONABLE IDIOTS)
TRASH-PUNK. 3rd and possibly final recording from these Italian mongoloids. This is a good mix of the different sounds of their 2 previous 7"s- The 1st side is catchy and punk as shit, probably the most RED KROSS-sounding thing they've done yet. The 2nd side is a total PISSED JEANS, FLIPPER and SNAKE APARTMENT-style noise jam that suits this band's fucked-up world view perfectly. A fitting way to end this killer band. Go and buy this - a must have for fans of all stupid hardcore-punk things.
s/t (2009/THINK FAST)
HARDCORE. OUTBREAK has opted to self-release this album through vocalist Ryan O'Connor's ever-growing Think Fast Records. Adding to the dimension is new guitarist Billy Bean (NO TRIGGER) who also shares vocal duties. OUTBREAK's self-titled debut is a direct statement. A testament to the fact that the band is still going strong. Crafted to silence anyone who questioned the band’s future. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
behind the mirror (2012/RESURRECTION)
GARAGE-ROCK. From the 1st note out of your speakers, this gem takes you to a different time and place entirely. Is this a lost album from '60s psych movement? Or a reissue of a nuggets band that slipped through the cracks? The answer is none of the above, this is a current band from Chicago who have discovered how to perfectly channel their music from a different era. Every aspect of this psychedelic pop record will lure you in, from the great guitar hooks, to the creepy voodoo organs, to the male and female vocal harmonies, right on down to the fact it was recorded with a vintage tape setup brings you right back to the roots of garage psych! Vinyl includes a digital download card.
s/t (2012) (2012/HARVCORE)
SXE-HARDCORE. New Jersey straight-edge band OUTLAST returns with a new 7" on Harvcore. Continuing where they left off with the "take control" 7", the crucial dudes in OUTLAST come back with a little more anger this time. You'll get 6 tracks that will have you singing along with your fingers pointing in no time. For fans of FLOOR PUNCH, MINDSET, and CHAMPION. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
legalize crime (2008/DEEP SIX)
HARDCORE. Current members of EYEHATEGOD (minus Jimmy Bower who's busy with DOWN) slithered back to life in the crustified form of OUTLAW ORDER. ultra fucking underground pissed as fuck hardcore-punk, as played by heathens who don't give a fuck about punk, and cut their teeth on unhealthy doses of metal. Desperate, unpolished, and not watered down.
HARDCORE. OUTLOOK hail from the green state of Washington and feature members that have done time in bands like SINKING SHIPS, THE ANSWER and STOP AND NOTHING and bring 5 raging, fast hardcore songs with some interesting guitar leads and politically-aware vocals.
HARDCORE. Based in the New England area, OUTRAGE has been making noise since their inception in 2006, with a '90s inspired, heavy, passionate and desperate sound. They take elements from classic bands from that era like 108 and HARVEST and mix it with the melody and aggression of current contemporaries HAVE HEART and VERSE, with the singers of HAVE HEART, SOUL CONTROL, HOSTAGE CALM and DEFEATER all providing guest vocals.
universal malcontents (2009/ALIVE)
PSYCHEDELLIC-ROCK. "universal malcontents" is OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY 9th release, and this new set of pop songs once again showcases the band's distinctive mid '70s sensibilities. The album is evocative of artists such as early ROXY MUSIC, SPARKKS, 10CC and ENO, and meanders at times into the improvisational realms charted by AMON DÜÜL and early SOFT MACHINE. Hailing from Detroit OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY has reached well-deserved cult status by releasing amazing psych/pop albums.
