mayor on crack (2014/UGLY POP)
PUNK-ROCK. Toronto "mayor" Rob Ford is an ignorant, corrupt, lying, bigoted, drunk-driving clown of a drug addict, so it’s clearly incumbent upon us to issue a punk-rock record attacking him personally. Luckily, SFH had already written the necessary response to this unfortunate episode in our city’s history, so Ugly Pop are putting it on the 7" it deserves. SFH frontman Kinsella is known to aficionados of Canadian punk for his part in '80s HOT NASTIES 7", and to most of the country as a persistent thorn in the side of the national right. His present band continue to churn out the sort of tuneful, topical but angry punk that the tasteless goons of ford nation would find decidedly unappealing.
the very best of (2011/RESURRECTION)
PUNK 'N' ROLL. This is a 4 song best of 7" from this short lived Bay-Area, California '60s style punk 'n' roll band. The self proclaimed "toughest band in California". Includes a ROLLING STONES cover too! Featuring the singer of the Los Angeles hardcore band RABIES, and the bass player from ANNIHILATION TIME. Limited one time pressing of 500.
i'm so proud of him (2011/BULKHEAD)
HARDCORE. Portland's ORGANIZED SPORTS bring a venomous brand of hardcore that pays quick homage to the old-school progenitors of the genre yet doesn't remain bound in its history. Punishing tempos and discerning breakdowns precariously held together by white noise... this record is relentless in its assault and purpose.
wolf it down (2007/PARTS UNKNOWN)
NOISE-PUNK-ROCK. Clevo does it again! Featuring members of the INMATES, DARVOCETS, CIDER, and pretty much every other Cleveland band worth mentioning in the past 10 years, THE WOLFDOWNERS debut (and swansong) "wolf it down" is upon us. Fuzzy, noisy, groovy, and kinda hard to tie down, the WOLFDOWNER's won't disappoint. Remember when Man's Ruin used to be a label that could do no wrong? Well it's kinda like that but better. Full of weirdness, trippy guitar solo's, and overall madness. This is a one time press of 500 copies. "It's not your daddy's rock n' roll".
negotium perambulans in tenebris (2013/A389)
HARDCORE/METAL. The band's 1st full-length debut record from 2000 on vinyl with a bonus track. Pure, raw brutality, GEHENNA is seething with primitive fury and laying waste with barbaric execution. Remastered with original artwork including a gatefold-jacket and poster-insert. For fans of INTEGRITY and HELLHAMMER. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
no visible light (2013/VENDETTA)
SLUDGE-HARDCORE. Greensboro's MOURNING CLOAK, made up of members of TORCH RUNNER, GRAF ORLOCK and BRAVEYOUNG. "no visible light" clocks in at just over 33min. of crushing riffs, devastating beats and thunderous vocals. The title is apt, because this is an ominous cloud blocking the sun, raining down charcoal dust, black mud, and infant ash on us all. It grooves hard enough to split the catacombs in half, releasing the crypt bats into the air. After the quickly dissipating opening ambience the guitars crawl from open graves and shake the rust off their bones with godless black-and-blues riffs. There is suck a thick layer of slime and sludge on the album tracks. This is some seriously bleak stuff that fans of BONGZILLA and COUGH should feverishly inhale. ( mister growl )
sympathetic shock (2012/VENDETTA)
HARDCORE. REIVERS are members of GRAF ORLOCK and NEGATIVE STANDARDS. "sympathetic shock" is their debut LP after releasing a 7" on Vitriol Records. Female fronted hardcore in the vein of SUICIDE FILE, BARS, PUNCH and other rocky-hardcore bands. Raging, political hardcore the way it should be. Vinyl comes in a fold-out cover, designed once more by Adam from Graf Orlock.
2012 (2014/P. TRASH)
PUNK-HARDCORE. WRONG HOLE features BRUTAL KNIGHTS, TEEN CRUDE COMBO, QUEST FOR FIRE etc. members. Stupidity is one of the most underrated qualities in punk and it’s one that Nick Flanagan, the former BRUTAL KNIGHTS frontman, never shyed away from. And thankfully that doesn’t change with his new band WRONG HOLES. This LP is packed with aggressive party jams, including fun punk, hardcore and garage anthems built on distorted guitars and Nick’s cleverly witty lyrics. Enjoy!
dronekill (2015/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. After an excellent demo tape, CONSTANT FEAR has taken the time to perfect and craft an absolutely phenomenal debut LP that steamrolls any and all competition. Imagine the furious guitar crunch of DISCHARGE being blasted through a gritty, NYC hardcore filter spewing out from a practice space in the bowels of Los Angeles. Comprised of members of DRY ROT and KNIFE FIGHT, the members are well versed in creating memorable, unbridled and incredibly aggressive hardcore. This is hardcore for those who do not know the meaning of the word "soft". Limited edition of 500 copies.
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. East-Van-Sludge-Violence sums it up. MUDLARK's earth shattering full-length LP is an explosive combination of power, mid '90s sludge and ear shattering thrash which almost borders on noisecore at times. Another staple in the Canadian power-violence resurgence. If you enjoy THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE stuff you will be soothed by MUDLARK's songs of unease. First 500 copies include a MUDLARK 7" as a bonus. What are you waiting for?
from the seeds that we have sown (2013/INIMICAL)
CRUST-HARDCORE/METAL. This latest release finds MISERY looking not only backwards but forwards as they celebrate 25 years together without a lineup change nor a break. The tracks show that MISERY will always be progressing and growing. The massive crushing heaviness, where armageddon shows that no one has perfected apocalyptic crust/stenchcore like MISERY has. The middle of this release finds them reaching back to the 1st demo. The latter features the return of Al Long who left MISERY to join NAUSEA shortly after the demo. The final 2 songs pay homage to their roots in the van by covering SACRILEDGE and CHROME, once again featuring Al Long, both adding their own ingredients that began to shape MISERY in 1988. Any band would be lucky to celebrate 25 years with a release this strong.
spires burn/release (2012/ARMAGEDDON )
STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. After 2 full-length albums on Meteor City, Massachusetts-based ELDER return with "spires burn/release". You'll get 2 tracks channeling California desert-rock ala KYUSS while still retaining some of the SLEEP influence of their earlier releases.
HARDCORE. The debut 7" from current Austin residents and Virginia expatriates, CUTTING LOSSES. "endless" is an 8 song record with negative views and crunchy riffs. No frills hardcore with plenty of two-step parts. For fans of RIGHT BRIGADE and TRIAL, and for those with a general disdain for life. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
rock and roll misery (2012/SPHC)
PUNK-ROCK. Punk often focuses so much on hip and hyped big city scenes that we forget that punk is more than just fashionable young people going through their expected motions. Predictable style, cool personalities, high school politicking; destroy it all. GLOBSTERS is a resounding wake-up call that punk should be for true freaks and geeks, an open door for those unable to fit into the beaten path that society at large will offer us. This new 7" trades in the tape-spliced style of the first 7" for real instrumentation and a wider variety of songwriting, from short, fast, loud ragers to mid-tempo melodic love songs.
BASTARDASS / ALL GONE DEAD
split (2007/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE/GRINDCORE. BASTARDASS bring you stop-and-start thrashy and noisy hardcore. Growls and pounding guitars and drums with angry, shouting vocals. ALL GONE DEAD bring you more of a minimal and raw noisecore, like GODSTOMPER. Screeching and raw sleighing lines.
