truncheons in the manor (2011/RORSCHACH)
POST/EMO-PUNK. "truncheons in the manor" is the 1st full-length by Philadelphia's AMATEUR PARTY. The band recorded 10 tracks to make this opus of an album. The band has an all-star line up of Philadelphia musicians that have played in ARMALITE, OFF MINOR, KILL THE MAN WHO QUESTIONS and more but really stands on its own without a resume. AMATEUR PARTY similar to their style reminiscent of post-punk. On their previous releases the band develops their sound even further to maker their best and most cohesive recording to date. Fans of THE JAM, THE MINUTEMEN and TED LEO take note, this record fits in perfectly with those of an older punk-rock sound.

s/t (2012/ADAGIO 830)
POST/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. Chicago's ITTO rises from the ashes of SUFFIX. They brings us a good dose of aggresivity, emotions and awesome riffs. Same sonic territory as SUFFIX with a heavy math-rock influence. For fans of SUFFIX, BEAU NAVIRE and SUIS LA LUNE. ITTO is the sonic exertions of all our hopes, dreams, trials and tribulations. They're 5 friends that wanna play on the edge of our abilities at all times.
POST-HARDCORE. DEADHEAD featuring 3/5 of TOUCHE AMORE as well as members of BLEEEDING KANSAS and RESTRAINED. DEADHEAD explore all avenues of despair, self-loathing, insanity, fear, and sacrilege with painstaking gutteral fervor. Their crusty, evil, and downright angry barrage on side-a is pitted against the massive riffage and epic tracks on side-b and the black on black artwork is only a precursor to how dark this album truly is.
NOISE/POST-ROCK. Debut full-length by the trio from Besancon, France. DAS MODEL delivering a very strong piece of music spanning from post-punk to new wave and then back to some classic noise-rock. Listening to this album certain references like SHELLAC or FUGAZI.
sounds that looks like us (2013/REVOLUTION SUMMER)

CAPTAIN, YOUR SHIP IS SINKING / BLACK EVEREST
split (2012/MOMENT OF COLLAPSE)
POST/SCREAMO-HARDCORE. BLACK EVEREST finally put out another 4 songs that are a progression of their demo. Built on the same fundaments, these tunes are more atmospheric and gloomy. Long passages of instrumental parts lead into totally harsh effusions of blastbeatdriven melodies. An interesting mix of tunes that fall somewhere between what was once known as screamo, hardcore and heavy postrock. These are the last 3 tracks by disbanded band, CAPTAIN, YOUR SHIP IS SINKING. After several lineup-changes these guys managed to write their final material that is embraced by a dark and despaired mood. Brilliant written melodies getting rushed by a frightening voice and uncompromising beaten drums. The record comes in a gatefold-jacket.
WILHELM AND THE DANCING ANIMALS
the war of the species (2012/LUBIC)
FOLK/EMO-PUNK. Spain’s WILHELM AND THE DANCING ANIMALS present an awesome combination of folk and punk with this release.

SCHNAUZER / PUNCHING MOSES
split (2009/RESCUED FROM LIFE)
GRINDCORE/HARDCORE. SCHNAUZER is totally brutal and raw grinding metal that will make you cringe! Noise blasted vocals and screams and noises over a barraging bruiser of metal and hardcore! Slick breakdowns and tight guitars that will have your head in a whirlwind. PUNCHING MOSES has been unlistenable by the Ohio state department. They pack it in with crucial metal ballads leading into hardcore blasts that totally border on the edge of punk-rock! Catchy and raw screams and snotty vices that will have you wondering why this isn't on the top in Ohio?
moonlight city (2008/CARGO)
PUNK 'N' ROLL. The perfectly drawn lady on the cover smiling at you makes this cover feel familiar in a great way; it seems as if one knows immediately what to expect from the new PSYCHOPUNCH album: the kick ass punk 'n' roll dosis that we missed for so long. The 4 Swedes give us exactly that and make no compromises with their style and sound. There is not a single band in the whole kick ass genre that is so clearly recognisable as PSYCHOPUNCH. With 10 songs, the album is not extraordinarily long but the quality of the songs makes up for that. Melody and power go hand in hand so that also the 7th PSYCHOPUNCH album is worth a recommendation for the fan of high quality punk 'n' roll.
s/t (2010/BEHIND THE SCENE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. After touring whole europe - FAMILY MAN from Berlin, Germany returns with their 2nd full-length. Fast, pissed, and innovative hardcore-punk - guitar riffs reminiscent of early BLACK FLAG, HÜSKER DÜ with a twist of BL'AST and punk as fuck vocals. These tracks rage with creative and devastating lyrics. Comes with an eyecatching silver-foiled cover! Do you seriously need a fucking reason to buy one of this records?
BAD LUCK RIDES ON WHEELS
SLUDGE/DOOM/METAL. This DoLP feature 8 songs and every single one is a gigantic monster who seems to grow constantly on the way by the tides of sludge, doom, black-metal and hard-rock. Quiet tones, acoustic guitars with minimalist support of the percussion and the one or other discreetly arranged sample, weave a sound carpet which invites you to stay and relax. But only for a short time and the monster is back - inexorably, immensely and, demanding! This 1st album of BAD LUKE RIDES ON WHEELS is a must-have and guaranteed ground breaking. Comparisons to other great bands can be renounced confidently. The protagonists themselves know about their job. Comes with gatefold cover, 180gr vinyl, MP3 download code and DVD.
