RIK AND THE PIGS
life's a bust (2016/FEEL IT)
PUNK-ROCK. The 2nd 7" from RIK AND THE PIGS is a smoking follow-up to 2015's "pig sweat". Side-a boasts 2 cuts of completely savage and hook-filled punk – exactly the kind of snot and filth that you'd expect. On the flip, "life's a bust" is a completely different animal, a loose and driving 5min tune featuring incredible guitar work and drumming from VEXX members.
all by myself (2014/FRONTIER)
PUNK-ROCK. The 1st solo album by the then former ADOLESCENTS guitar player RIKK AGNEW, originally released in 1982. AGNEW played guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and even sang on this Orange County punk classic that features one of the best punk-rock songs ever written, "o.c. life". "all by myself" was out-of-press for ages and is now available again on colored vinyl. This album is for fans of ADOLESCENTS, AGENT ORANGE and D.I..
RIKK AGNEW BAND
PUNK-ROCK. RIKK AGNEW put together a 12-song album, "learn", with a permanent group known simply as the RIKK AGNEW BAND. The new tracks are easily as good as anything he wrote for THE ADOLESCENTS and his solo album "all by myself". After all these years, RIKK has not slowed down or waned in impact and vitality. Thick 180gr vinyl includes a digital download card.
detention halls (2007/YO-YO)
POP-PUNK. "detonation halls" is RINDERS 2nd full-length. Well-written gritty pop-punk for late night coffee shop romantics and anyone trying to figure what happened to their youth and where they're supposed to go from here. During their 10 tracks you'll hear hints of everything that made '90s East-Bay pop-punk great, a touch of '77, on occasion the drive of true post-hardcore and enough inspiration and originality to make it all into something different. Sounds like Tim Armstrong from RANCID writing DILLINGER FOUR songs.
birth is pain (2013/VICTORY)
HARDCORE/METAL. Featuring former members of INTEGRITY, this resurrected Cleveland band plays brutal, mettalic hardcore music. Their music has a viral tendancy to infect weaken and debilitate.

RINGWORM's Victory debut release, "birth is pain" is the soundtrack to the annihilation of society. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
hammer of the witch (2014/RELAPSE)
HADCORE/METAL. RINGWORM mark their Relapse Records debut with "hammer of the witch", a 13-track combustible combination of metal and hardcore delivered with the ferocity of all of their Victory releases and beyond. Most RINGWORM songs are have the same ingredients: thrashy riffs, breakdowns, and a total absence of pretension. They're all to the point, much like the harshness of living in an Ohio town where the factory isn't ever coming back. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
justice replaced by revenge (2016/VICTORY)
HARDCORE/METAL. RINGWORM's brooding guitar lines and pummeling riffs on "justice replaced by revenge" reach into the depths of the psyche and bring forth the evil that lives inside. RINGWORM's primary songwriter, Frank also plays in hardcore contemporaries TERROR and new fans are anxiously awaiting the return of RINGWORM. With a sound powerful enough to bring entire civilizations to their knees, RINGWORM conquers an internal struggle on "justice replaced by revenge" and exorcises humanity's filthy demons. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE/METAL. RINGWORM erupted in 1991 from Cleveland in a brutal local scene where they blended purist hardcore with metal influences and punishing live shows. 2011's "scars" is a pummeling and vile affirmation of the thrash-inspired metal and heavy-hitting hardcore only RINGWORM is capable of unleashing.
out of stock
snake church (2016/RELAPSE)
HARDCORE/METAL. Legendary Cleveland quintet RINGWORM discharges their 8th full-length album "snake church", a 12-track, +30min. testament of vicious aggression. After having converted metalheads and hardcore fans alike with their intense, no-holds-barred live shows and consistently punishing albums over the course of the last +25 years, RINGWORM once again proves that they are in a league of their own when it comes to face-breaking sonic fury. "snake church" obliterates the listener and never relents, leaving nothing but bile and bone in its wake. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

RIOT BEFORE, THE
EMO/PUNK-ROCK. If one were to describe Richmond's THE RIOT BEFORE's sound, they might say something along the lines of MIKE NESS of SOCIAL DISTORTION singing for AGAINST ME with a healthy dash of THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM's americana rock 'n' roll thrown into the mix to keep the hips swaying. LP includes CD version of the entire album.
