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.
Made in hellfire (2008/SM MUSIK)
CRUST-HARDCORE. The band stands up from the ashes of the AMPLIFIRES and plays dark hardcore-crust with hints of stoner- and doom-rock. BOSTAURUS appealing to both scenes (metal and hardcore) lethally and equally as a new kind of aggressive aural amalgamation. If you like DISFEAR you wil love BOSTAURUS. Crank it up and get blown away. Buy it if you enjoy the heavier stuff.
SPASTIX, THE / SKRÄCK
split (2010/SM MUSIK)
HARDCORE. The long waiting finally has an end. SKRÄCK from Leipig should be know for several other releases so far team up with their friends from SPASTIX. Angry an truneful hardcore-punk from SKRÄCK meets fast, thrasy and youthful hardcore from THE SPASTIX out of East Germany (okay...Eisenach, Dresden, Leipzig). After their highly acclaimed 7" debut the next step further for THE SPASTIX. Both taken the best elements of their previous sound and expanded on it all, resulting in their best and most diverse recordings to date.
slaves to the locust (2015/HOLY GOAT/SM-MUSIK)
BLACK-METAL. "slaves to the locust" is the newest 4 track release by CHAMBER from Leipzig, Germany. This is once more epic black-metal at it's best. If you like their previous release you'll dig this as well. A must have for fans of WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, LITURGY or DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT. Double vinyl comes in an awesome gatefold-cover!
s/t (2014/SM MUSIK)
PUNK-ROCK. The angry man is singing just a stupid song about love and hate. But realise, life is just a Ramones song! Leipzig-Plagwitz dirtiest Rock’n’Roll.
HOLIER THAN THOU?
high on barbeque (2003/DERANGED)
HARDCORE/THRASH. This one-sided LP is the newest installment of skate-rock crossover from Oxnard, California’s own geniuses, HOLIER THAN THOU?. After a great 7" and full-length on Six Weeks Records, "high on barbecue" follows in the same steps with mental vocals, speed metal/crossover riffs and all around well feed aggressive hardcore. Total early R.K.L. and ACCÜSED worship. The vinyl includes 5 tracks as well as a MOTÖRHEAD cover. Skatecore is back and HOLIER THAN THOU? are at the helm, get used to it!
ENABLER / DRAINLAND
split (2012/DE GRAANREPUBLIEK)
HARDCORE/METAL. This split 7" features Dublin, Ireland's DRAINLAND and Milwaulkee's ENABLER. Hey it’s DRAINLAND so obviously we’re stepping in. They’ve got it covered with 1 song this time. Heavy with slower and fast parts. Not unlike their previous material but this is intense like never before mainly due to Jamie’s vocals. As if KYLESA would release a track on a Bovine compilation. Awesome. On the flipside is ENABLER from Milwaukee, USA. These fellows have some experience in shitloads of bands like TODAY IS THE DAY, RACETRAITOR and TRAP THEM. So yeah it’s heavy. Some hints of a heavier CONVERGE with d-beat and power-violence bits thrown into it. Pretty damn good mixture!
boys & girls (2007/PRÜGELPRINZ)
GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. This CLOROX GIRLS release brings you 3 smashers on 45 rpm. Two of them are already on the last full-length on BYO, but these versions are harder, faster and way better! The 3rd songs is a greatly done coversong of the old brazilian punk-band TITAS "policia". The 7" comes in a nice fullcolor artwork , real cardboardsleeve, lyricsheet. What do you more exspect from a CLOROX GIRLS release? One-time pressing - you know the deal!
