POST-HARDCORE. Following their highly regarded "shame" LP from 2013, NO OMEGA has continued their evolution, this time bringing us the powerful "occupants". Picking up with their refreshing take on melodic but harsh and driving hardcore, you will feel the urgency of these songs right from the starting notes. There is also an overlaying haze bringing out the space and ambiance of the room it was recorded in, and despite the bombastic energy of the songs, this allows a gloomy side to shine through as well. If ever a hardcore record could capture the feeling of hopelessness, nowhere to go with the inevitable end impending, "Occupants" definitely takes on the challenge of that achievement. A must for fans of TOUCHE AMORE, BIRDS IN ROW. One-sided colored vinyl includes an etched b-side.
NO ONE RULES
always losing (2015/SOLID BOND)
HARDCORE. This is the debut and final 7" for NO ONE RULES. Originally released in 2014 with an alternate cover, "always losing" brings you 7 tracks of straightforward, NYC hardcore influenced hardcore. Features ex-members of BACKTRACK.
ceaseless fire (2002/PARTNERS IN CRIME)
HARDCORE. "ceaseless fire" deliver 15 tracks of powerful but catchy hardcore from NO PARADE. The style is similar to FROM ASHES RISE or TRAGEDY, and in fact NO PARADE features members of FROM ASHES RISE. The music is harsh and hard hitting with screamed vocals, but the melodic underbelly keeps the songs memorable and almost pleasant. Even better than their debut 7".
s/t (2015/MAD AT THE WORLD)
OI/STREET-PUNK. The debut 7” by New Jerseys NO PAROL, featuring ex-members of CRIMINAL INTENT, ALTERED BOYS, and others, for those of you paying attention. You'll get 4 songs of rough but tuneful oi!, with definite cues from some of the more bald-headed varieties of hardcore and punk. We’re glad to see long-time tri-state area troublemaker Jesse Gasface fronting another band, and even happier to release the band’s first outing on wax. Great stuff if you’re into the newer bands like CROWN COURT or RIXE, as well as the classics.
violent thoughts (2016/LONGSHOT)
OI/STREET-PUNK. This is the sophomore release from this hardcore and punk influenced bunch of bootboys that is doing justice to the genre of American OI!. On this 7", there are 6 blistering tracks that are raw and uncompromising with gruff vocals backed up by a somewhat contrasting smooth and at times melodic guitar and bass with machine gun drumming throughout, played with the same fire as BLITZ, 4-SKINS and CROWN COURT. Features members of CRIMINAL INTENT and SKIN DISORDER. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
no axis (2012/INKBLOT)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Members of GRIDS and OBSTRUCTION deliver a raw, 4 song blast of feedback soaked d-beat hardcore-punk. Taking cues from classic Japanese hardcore and more modern Spanish bands like INVASION or DESTINO FINAL, these North Carolina ragers have outdone themselves on this, their 4th release, after previously releasing 2 tapes and a 7". Vinyl includes a digital download card and is strictly limited to 300 copies.
no peace (2013/SORRY STATE)
HARDORE. After a quickly-released blur of tapes and 7"s, North Carolina's NÖ PÖWER unleash their debut LP on the world. While their earlier stuff, which was pretty straightforward raw d-beat in the DISCLOSE tradition, NÖ PÖWER really finds their voice on this LP, fusing their DISCHARGE-inspired approach with the heavy and dissonant sounds of '90s noise-rock. It's an original sound, comparable to a more rock-oriented take on the experimental d-beat of recent Japanese bands like D-CLONE and ZYANOSE, delivered with heavy production for maximum impact. This LP features gorgeous hand-made packaging, too, including hand-screened jackets and obi strips as well as hand-stamped labels and dust jackets. The 1st press is limited to 300 numbered copies.
already dead (2014/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. After their stellar debut they deliver a sophomore full-length that takes their frustrated and paranoid hardcore-punk to a new level. Still taking cues from BLACK FLAG, D.O.A. or TSOL, they add darker and more melodic elements to the mix. This is music for maladjusted adults who are too old to be able to relate to teenage problems, but whose feelings of alienation have in no way withered with age, and are looking for something that musically and lyrically captures the frustration of adult punk life. NO PROBLEM effectively fusing hardcore with catchy yet aggressive or paranoid melody, as bands like SOCIAL CIRCKLE and DEEP SLEEP have done in recent years. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
and now this (2011/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Debut full-length from Canada's NO PROBLEM is an absolute hardcore-punk scorcher. With 2 great 7"s in 2010-2011, this album showcases a band at ease with their sound - blending hardcore and punk with plenty of big riffs and melodies, not unlike FUCKED UP's pre Matador days/years. Consistent with their earlier recordings, and now this is essentially a hardcore record with melodic punk sensibilities similar to the ADOLESCENTS and the OBSERVERS.
kid killer (2015/DERANGED)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Edmonton, Canada hardcore-punk outfit NO PROBLEM continues to grind out new material between world tours. Once again, the band offers up some frenetic, unique and intense tracks that touch on everything from street-punk and '80s hardcore, all delivered with incredibly tight musicianship and a ton of energy. It's an impressive three-song run that proves NO PROBLEM is yet to run out of ideas. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
living in the void (2012/DEBT OFFENSIVE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. NO PROBLEM, following up their great LP on Deranged Records that came out 2011. This 3 track record combines the raw hardcore of that LP with the more melodic elements found on their earlier 7"s, creating a energetic and angry batch of songs that comes closest to matching their killer live shows. These guys definitely fit in well alongside bands like NEON PISS, NIGHT BIRDS or CAREER SUICIDE. Vinyl includes a digital download card. ATTENTION: The 3 tracks are added on the european P.Trash Records LP.
paranoid times (2013/DEBT OFFENSIVE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Re-release of the 2nd 7" from Edmonton’s NO PROBLEM. Picks up where their debut 7" left off, and acts as a precursor to their LP coming on Deranged. Comparisons to the OBSERVERS, RED DONS and REGULATIONS seem to be popping up, but there is a heavier element at work here that also brings to mind the early days of NYC hardcore. This 4-song offering features some of the catchiest hardcore-punk from 2011 with absolutely zero pretension or cheese.
your eyes (2012/HANDSOME DAN)
HARDCORE-PUNK. While the Wednesday NIGHT HEROES may be on indefinite hiatus, lead singer Graeme MacKinnon has enlisted members of Edmonton punk-rock heavyweights to pick up where the Heroes left off. Recalling bands like the ADOLESCENTS and ZERO BOYS at their peak, NO PROBLEM capture the spirit of early '80s hardcore while creating something unique and inspiring in the process. This is punk-rock the way it should be: pissed off yet catchy-as-hell; anthems that will make you either want to start your own band or destroy every shitty one out there. Re-press in colored vinyl!
hyenas (2013/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE. NO QUALMS from Florida play angry hardcore ripped down to the core. They bring a array of guttural vocals, crust coated, fastcore anthems! NO QUALMS take elements of bands like INFEST and CAPITALIST CASUALTIES and lay it over with a original crust based simplistic hardcore. They push the boundaries of their respective genres and create a sound all their own.
the branches of suffering (2016/BITTER MELODY)
HARDCORE. Originally a tape only release, this 7" features 5 tracks of '90s-influenced politically charged hardcore that takes aim at animal rights issues with music delivered in the same vein as classics from that era like TRIAL, EARTH CRISIS or SEVEN GENERATION. Limited edition of 500 copies.
