GRINDCORE. JESUS CRÖST are a two piece grindcore band who have added other underground elements to their music. The duo have added death-metal and power-violence to create a ferocious brutally fast noise that slows down from ramming speed just a little now and then before angrily pummeling once again at full throttle. There is a lot of experience and songwriting skills going on here, with JESUS CRÖST displating their ability to craft fast, brutal and, last but not least, catchy songs, that can make you headbang like a fool! This is a solid purchase, if your into PHOBIA, BRUTAL TRUTH, INSECT WARFARE or NASUM.
HARDCORE. IRON MERDA from Palma de Mallorca play great d-beat hardcore-punk. Members of USURY, WASTED, ORDEN MUNDIAL and TRAU.
city burning (2009/NO FRONT TEETH)
POP-PUNK-ROCK. On "city burning" you'll get 2 cuts from the SUSPECT PARTS featuring members of THE BRIEF, CUTE LEPERS, THE CLOROX GIRLS, RED DONS, THE SHOCKS etc.. - yeah, quite the fuckin supergroup and a killer 7" that you badly need. The SUSPECT PARTS deliver great power-pop punk gems with a hint of '60s beat and shit is this infectious... youll be wanting this for sure.
POP-PUNK-ROCK. Featuring Justin from the CLOROX GIRLS and RED DONS and Chris from the BRIEFS. While spending time in Europe, both came together and wrote 2 originals and the cover "to stone" by THE TWO CHEQUES. "seventeen television" is the standout track and brings to mind a more anthemic punk version of the CLOROX GIRLS with Justin on both vocals and guitar duties.
FREDAG DEN 13:E
under iskalla fanor (2010/CIVILISATION)
CRUST-HARDCORE. FREDAG DEN 13:E was formed in Göteborg in 2006. Musically the band is aiming to combine both the power of scandinavian crust-hardcore with the rock 'n' roll feel of POISON IDEA and MOTÖRHEAD. The result has been desrcibed as singalong d-beat hardcore, which isn't far from the truth.
from the audio/video department (2007/MVR)
PUNK 'N' ROLL. Get your fuck-up on with a brand new DVD+CD set featuring the self-proclaimed greatest rock'n'roll band in the world raising hell on stage in Anaheim, San Diego, and during a 3-song classic "all-country" set in LA. Material shot and recorded live at the House of Blues (Anaheim, 2/18/04), The Casbah (San Diego, 2/24/04), and at Amoeba Records (Los Angeles, 2/20/04).
RED KNIFE LOTTERY
hip bruisers (2008/INIT)
POST-HARDCORE. "hip bruisers" deliver 2 songs from Milwaukee's RED KNIFE LOTTERY. Recorded right before they added a 2nd guitarist. These songs show a lot of maturity as a band from their previous efforts and is like a well-mixed blend of PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES, BLOOD BROTHERS and SINCE BY MAN (without the metal). Limited to 500 copies only.
cobwebs from the empty skull (2008/COWABUNGA)
HARDCOE-PUNK. The sound of RHYTHM SYNDROM from Southern California is hard to pin point. RHYTHM SYNDROM come out with 6 tracks of extremely raw, fast hardcore-punk with jangly guitars and pretty snotty vocals with anti-social and paranoid lyrics, bringing to mind bands like the NECROS or SONS OF ISHMAEL. If you already own their "fatal error" 7" and the track on the "sick of fun" compilation you'll this item too!
I AM MY END
s/t (2015/SM MUSIK)
CRUST-HARDCORE. The 1st full-length record of this new band from Leipzig, Germany. With members from WEHRLOS they developed their own kind of dark crust-hardcore, with epic moments but enough punk influence. Remembers to such bands like LETHARGIE. ethargie.
skate attack (2006/MARKER)
HARDCORE. After a couple well done releases (THE TANGLED LINES and SHUT THE FUCK UP etc.) Marker records from the Münster area is back with another awesome rerelease. The 14 tracks are quite good, with lots of anger, energy, and speed. SCREWED UP going to mix their early `80s US-hardcore with today's 625 bandana-trashcore! All tracks are built on a foundation of solid trashy and positive hardcore song writing and the occassional inclusion of a catchy melody. The lyrics shifts from your standard "stabbed in the back" fare to songs that are actually interesting and make you think Fast and energetic hardcore recommended for fans of LIF'S HALT, DEAD NATION, SHARK ATTACK or anyone disgruntled in skate- thrash- and fastcore with a hint of positive message.
HIRO / AMALTHEA
split (2008/SM MUSIK)
SCREAMO/EMO-HARDCORE. AMALTHEA from Sweden take a new dimension - they continue with their epic end '90s influenced emocore stuff on side-a and on the flip side we have new songs by HIRO (ex GANTZ) from France. HIRO play wonderful, emotional french screamo-hardcore in the way of traditional french bands from the early '90s or japanese ENVY (their earlier stuff for shure). This is a great split with nice cover artwork.
CHAMBERS / DEATH OF ANNA KARINA, THE
SCREAMO/POST-HARDCORE. CHAMBERS have an interesting sound that incorporates a very matter of fact vocal style over top of some of slightly dirty tunes that keep a melodic, yet edgy tone to them. This is what YAGE would sound like if they sang in Italian. There’s a little bit of RAEIN sound in here too at times when things take on a more rock approach to them. Mildy distorted guitars with big chords are on display for most of the duration while the busy drums keep the tempo moving and interesting. THE DEATH OF ANNA KARINA come out of the gates with an upbeat track that features a nice catchy hook. Their sound is a bit more on the straight forward rock side of things, though the tones of the guitars and taseful drum work are similar to CHAMBERS in some respects. The vocal delivery is a bit screamier here though and works to make the more straigh forward style more intense. Picture AMANDA WOODWARD meets the GOODTIME BOYS and you start to get an idea of what’s going on here. Vinyl comes with aoutstanding gatefold-cover.
METALCORE. Mixing fierce heavy-metal with blistering hardcore and a touch of melody, EIGHTEEN VISIONS garnered attention on the 2004 Warped Tour, which coincided with the release of the band's 4th Trustkill Records album, "obsession". Fueled by plenty of angst and aggression, the music of EIGHTEEN VISIONS occasionally verges on emo territory, making it appealing to anyone that likes their music loud and intense.
thirst (2013/PER KORO/LIFE AND DEATH/STATE OF MIND)
HARDCORE/METAL. For over 7 years GOLDUST haunts the seedy places that lie between hardcore, punk and metal – and with their 3rd full-length "thirst" the band reaches a definite peak of their rich and uncompromising discography. Their unforgiving sound maintains deeply rooted in hardcore’s aggressiveness, yet the five-piece perfected the inclusion of various other influences that range from bleak and nihilistic black-metal to the ugly swamps of sludge with its violent, uncontrollable noise attacks. According to the band, "thirst" is the product of quite difficult times on personal and band-wise levels, thus being without a doubt GOLDUST’s most intimate and important output to date. The fact that they took care of the complete recording and the artwork all by themselves underlines this statement even more. Vinyl comes with great artwork, thick inside-out cover, black innersleeve, lyricsheet and includes a digital download card. [PK 064]
GOLDUST / CURBBITE
split (2011/WALKING DEAD)
HARDCORE/POWER-VIOLENCE. GOLDUST deliver once more black-soaked, heavy, progressive hardcore with a hint of death/black-metal in the vein of early INTEGRITY, RINGWORM or newer PULLING TEETH, RISE & FALL etc.. CURBBITE plays ugly, brutal, down-tuned stop-and-go hardcore influenced by TRASH TALK, CROSSED OUT and SIEGE. This is crushing violence from both German powerhouses. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
