SICK/TIRED / COFFEE RAGE
mad blasts of chaos vol.2 (2009/IDONEUM BELLO)
HARDCORE. Hands down, the 2nd split in the series has the potential to be a future classic! It’s also shared by a US and a New Zealand. SICK/TIRED are from DeKalb and features (ex-) members of MK-ULTRA, WEEKEND NACHOS, EXALTED, RIGHT TO REMAIN, LAYERS OF TWAT, FUNERAL FUCK TOY, CRAZY STALLION and others. SICK/TIRED carry on where MK-ULTRA stopped! You'll get 4 tracks of top notch fast, vicious, brutal hardcore! SICK/TIRED kick some serious ass and you need this! COFFEE RAGE share members with GAWJ and ASSCHARGER. They offer you 7 raw punk slayers on their side drawing mostly influence from old Japcore and Scandicore! Seriously if this would have been a boxing match it would be announced a draw! The split comes sealed with an obistrip, inserts and stickers! The 7”s on black vinyl come with a sticker of each band but the 7”s on clear vinyl come with 2 stickers of each band. 900 on black and 100 on clear vinyl.
SICK/TIRED / OX BAKER
HARDCORE. One Hell of a lovely mess on a 7". Sludging then grinding, SICK/TIRED return with their 3rd release, the follow up to their LP on To Live a Lie Records. Crushing power-violence with distinct hardcore and punk influences that will have you laughing in the face of death. Flip it over as the ugly face of small town Ontario thrash, rage and pound - 4 racks of unrelenting, pissed off hardcore that carries on where previous releases left off. A lovely pairing of 2 bands that mix up their sound with hints of '80s hardcore, power-violence and sludge. One time pressing of 700 copies.
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. SICKMARK is a brand new band from Bielefeld, Germany, featuring former members of recently disbanded HYENA. On their debut 7" they play a blistering, dark, dirty, raw, and spazzy style of power-violence hardcore. SICKMARK tear their way through 12 tracks of music in 8min. flat, which will pretty much ensure that your head will spin and your neck will experience whiplash. Overall, this 7" is absolutely ferocious and impressive. It comes in a beautiful risographed cover includes a screenprinted poster.
no home (2013/HARDWARE)
HARDCORE. Brand new LP for their upcoming european tour in may and june. You'll get 6 fresh fucking frantic crackers by these ex-Philadelphia lads. Straight forward storming hardcore destruction at it's best. US pressing will follow on Grave Mistake and Sorry State.
HARDCORE. Punishing debut LP by one of the best new hardcore bands to come around for a while! An unrelenting, dark, and ultimately raging record that combines the brutal edge of a DIE KREUZEN mixed with the hardcore melody of a ARTICLES OF FAITH. Yet this band sounds new and fresh and not attempting to ape past hardcore genres. SICKOIDS have an incredible driving sound that is harsh but also has a intense controlled chaos. The rhythms are fierce and hit with procession and are brilliantly matched with the chorus style guitar that hits like a knife in the chest. This dynamic trio made up of WITCH HUNT, GOVERNMENT WARNING and DIRECT CONTROL members.
SIDE BY SIDE
you're only young once.. (2013/REVELATION)
SXE-HARDCORE. Out of all the straight-edge bands of the late '80s, SIDE BY SIDE seems to be one of the most underrated. They're not as popular as GORILLA BISCUITS, as influential as YOUTH OF TODAY, or as musically advanced as BOLD, but nonetheless "you're only young once" is a powerful album. Remastered to be better than ever, this release has been expanded to a full-length packed with unreleased studio, live, and practice recordings. Colored (grey) vinyl version includes a digital download card.
churchill downs (2009/RISING RIOT)
HARDCORE. While so many bands call it a day after 1 year, the SIDETRACKED-four carry it on and on and on. Here is another fine 7" with 6 new songs out of coalchamber and the 4 guys just won't slow down. The last MLP was really powerful and intense, these tracks are simply fast, short and loud, a thrashing hardcore attack like you'll love it. This 7" sounds raw and dirty like it should be; this is a punkrock-engine fuelled the spirit of some fuckheads with their hearts at the right place. This Shit Rulez!
forfeit (2012/ROTTEN TO THE CORE)
GRINDCORE. Tacoma, WA's SIDETRACKED deliver 12 quick bursts of brutality (with a NASUM cover). Typically known for being chaotic, on this release they put some focus musically on the more primitive side of grindcore ala NAPALM DEATH's "scum" while vocally keeping things rooted in hardcore.
ghosttown bloomer (2012/RISING RIOT)
HARDCORE. SIDETRACKED from Germany deliver once more hardcore with passion and anger, melody and middle fingers. Fast thrashy parts and more frisky ones. In the early days, the sounded more like Boston, JERRYS KIDS with a modern hint. Nowadays there are also much modern influences from bands like GOLD KIDS or PATSY O HARA. Everybody gets operated. Mixed and recorded in the Tonmeisterei Oldenburg. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
the decay (2007/HORROR BUSINESS)
HARDCORE. SIDETRACKED from the western part of Germany are around for some years and previous released a few other stuff so far. This one-sided LP shows their talent again. Definitions of music usually suck, so let's say they play some hardcore-thrash like some Boston bands did before (GANG GREEN, JERRY'S KIDS) or DS-13, E.T.A. from Sweden. SIDETRACKED try to express their view to this world, with all their love, hate, joy and frustrations. They are a very energetic, fast and lusty band that is still not fed up.
uniform (2011/TO LIVE A LIE)
HARDCORE. Washington's deliver 13 songs of most insane heavy fast hardcore you can imagine...all on just one-side. Comes with a MP3 download card.
SIDETRACKED / GAZ-66 INTRUSION
split (2013/REGURGITATED SEMEN)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. After a bunch of 7"s, split 7" and tapes, SIDETRACKED returns with 9 power-violence burst in NO COMMENT and CROSSED OUT vibe. After the 625 Records debüt 7" GAZ-66 INTRUSION from the Ukraine (named after a Soviet truck) they are back with 6 straight forward blasting fastcore attacks; including a classic CROSSED OUT coverversion. For fans of early Slap-A-Ham Record artists. Limited edition of 500 copies.
SIDETRACKED / KACHEL
split (2010/RISING RIOT)
HARDCORE-PUNK. It took so long to release this piece of vinyl - but now it it sees the light of day. You'll get maniac hardcore-punk by both german bands. SIDETRACKED from the Ruhrpott with 4 new smashers and KACHEL from Munich with 2 songs!
SIDETRACKED / SELF INFLICTED
split (2012/DEEP SIX)
POWER-VIOLENCE/GRINDCORE. Two West-Coast veterans team up for this raging slab of wax. Oakland's SELF INFLICTED bring 7 songs of intense hardcore reminiscient of bands like NO COMMENT and CAPITALIST CASUALTIES. Tacoma's SIDETRACKED bring 10 songs in a similar vein with nods to RUPTURE and CITIZENS ARREST as well.
