PUNK-ROCK. Still retaining some of that Southern California beach punk influence as shown on the 7" and demo, the band has also taken more additional cues from the real surf-rock genre, KBD punk and obscure rock 'n' roll in general. It is hard to describe it really apart from a few obvious nods and this record does stand on it's own. This band is part of the very amazing Rotcore scene, for the uninitiated that's Rochester NY. Look it up because they're churning out some gems. Per band's request there is no color vinyl, insted nostalgic full-color brown interior cardstock covers.
la poli bastarda (2014/NO NOSTALGIA)
OI/STREET-PUNK. ARREST follow up their killer demo with "la poli bastarda" 7", finding itself at the perfect intersection of Spanish punk and UK oi!. On this record, members of other excellent Barcelona bands such as CRIMEN DE ESTADO and SIBERIA harness their appreciation for DECIBELIOS, RIP, and BLITZ into 4 flawless tracks of driving and angry punk, with an infusion of melody and catchiness that recalls NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS. The record comes beautifully packaged in full-color with an obvious nod to the timeless 4-SKINS.
watchung from a distance (2012/KREATION)
DOOM-METAL. WARNING plays doom-metal, stripped down to its most basic form- a powerful expression of despair. The lyrics deal entirely with personal struggles, failure, longing, and other powerful feelings. The vocals are extremely intimate and emotional. The guitar has an impressively heavy quality with a tasteful amount of roar on the sustained notes, while still maintaining a light and beautiful quality on the harmonized melodies. This album is nearly flawless and a perfect doom-metal experience. Double vinyl comes in an eyecatching gatefold-sleeve.
collective unconsciousness (2014/IRON LUNG)
HARDCORE-PUNK. SEXUAL HUMANS IN TURMOIL, more commonly known as S.H.I.T., debut with 4 urgently executed, 100% uncommon hardcore-punk tracks in the modern Toronto, Canada style. "collective unconciousness" speaks to a vast generation of sleeping strength and rusted mobility. It's time. Organize. Stand tall. Believe in your movement. Check your spelling. Honest, important music gets made less frequently than it should and gets noticed even less. Don't be a dullard, wake up and smell the S.H.I.T. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
the sanity universal (2014/MELOTOV)
POST-HARDCORE. SEIZURES' "the sanity universal" receives the vinyl treatment and is now fully remixed, remastered and available on vinyl for the 1stt time as a 2xLP. From the beach town of Dana Point, south of L.A., SEIZURES own their own brand of next-generation mathcore - dark, complex, adventurous. Born in the shadow of the elder Orange County scene, SEIZURES is closer in spirit to bands like RORSCHACH and COALESCE - bands that pushed hardcore into other dimensions, that embraced complexity not as an exercise but as an exorcism. The double album's vastness and suffocating heaviness cannot be contained, much like the starscape on its cover. Colored vinyl is limited to 500 copies.
wait for the end (2014/IRON LUNG)
HARDCORE. Straight froward throat scraping thrashy hardcore punk with grind leanings from Portland. Members of many other bands but most directly related with our fine label by vocalist August Alston who quit WALLS to start and focus on PLEASURE CROSS. Needless to say, this is serious business. So put on your high tops and camo pants and get your ass into the whirlwind. Vinyl is limited to 500 copies, includes a digital download card and is on black vinyl to set the whole thing in motion.
christ the album (2013/CRASS)
ANARCHO-PUNK. Reissue of CRASS' 4th album including original book and poster. Cut to lacquer at Abbey Road studios, from the original analogue vinyl master. No remixing! Released in 1982 with unplanned irony as the Falklands War raged, "christ, the album", another double-album half-studio/half-live release, once again aimed to take no prisoners. This twin LP package includes their June 1981 gig at the 100 Club in London along with other studio tracks, demos, radio broadcasts and cassette recordings. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
v/a A TRIBUTE TO NASUM
(2009/POWER IT UP)
GRINDCORE/HARDCORE/METAL. NASUM played a mixture of grindcore and death-metal. More than 2 years of work, to get all the tracks from 53 bands from all over the world together. NASUM was on the front of modern grindcore and one of the most well known band of that genre. On this DoLP you'll find more than 50 bands who give there respect to NASUM. To many to mention...AFGRUND, BOMBSTRIKE, COLDWORKER, CYNESS, EMBALMING THEATRE, KEITZER, LENG T'CHE, MAGRUDERGRIND, MISERY INDEX, ROTTEN SOUND, SAYYADINA, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION, JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE etc..
chamberlain waits (2015/RED SCARE)
POP/EMO-PUNK. "chamberlain waits" may very well be the most important record released so far by Red Scare and on it THE MENZINGERS combine many of the genre's styles (punk, hardcore, folk) to make for an undeniably infectious hybrid of hits. Produced by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Lawrence Arms), this 12 track album is destined for great, great things.
no knocks (2014/FAT WRECK CHORDS)
POP-PUNK. Known for their catchy, upbeat melodies, smudged with a dose of that Midwestern punk aesthetic, THE COPYRIGHTS have carved out an enviable spot in the pop-punk world. "no knocks" offers up 3 brand tracks replete with multilayered vocal harmonies and some of the most edgy, up-tempo, infectious songwriting around. A word of warning: "no knocks" is a one-time limited pressing, so get it while the getting's good.
DOOMRIDERS / DISFEAR
HARDCORE. To celebrate their long standing friendship, DISFEAR and DOOMRIDERS have paired up to release a limited split 7". With DOOMRIDERS, we get a glimpse into their progression since "black thunder" in the soon-to-be classic, "a crooked path". On the other side, DISFEAR unleash the hook laden "fear & trembling". Vinyl includes a digital download card.
ERGS, THE / MEASURE, THE
split (2009/NO IDEA)
POP/EMO-PUNK. The battle of New Jersey commences on this split 7", pitting THE ERGS and their DESCENDENTS and THE REPLACEMENTS-inspired rockin' punk tunes that were recorded prior to their final "that's It...bye" record against THE MEASURE (SA)'s female-fronted melodic punk-rock in the same vein as DISCOUNT and DILLINGER FOUR. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
the declaration (2006/GET OUTTA TOWN)
HARDCORE. Chicago's HAUNTED LIFE follow up their 7" and their split with MAKE OR BREAK WITH THIS, their debut full-length "the declaration", which is comprised of 9 originals and a MISFITS cover. These windy city kids have also done time in EXPIRED YOUTH and FEW AND THE PROUD and play hardcore in the vein of "Blood Sweat And No Tears"-era SICK OF IT ALL but with a distinct modern style and recording.
8 tracks (2011/HAVOC/D-TAKT)
HARDCORE. Rampaging hardcore noize from these Australian fanatics. This band takes the DISORDER, DISCLOSE and CONFUSE style of hardcore. KRÖMOSOM have the same hard charging power and wall of raw noise of bands like the newer bands like NERVESKADE. With a solid and powerful hardcore backbone that recalls the masters of Scandinavian hardcore from years past.
bearings & distance (2008/LEVEL PLANE)
HARDCORE. GHOSTLIMB is a three-piece from southern California formed in 2006. Presenting ridiculously pissed hardcore with the elements of melody, thrash and general poor disposition, GHOSTLIMB compile all the rage a minute-long song can handle with sprinklings of social critique and dissatisfied sarcasm. This CD collects both their 2006 self-titled debut and 2008 "bearing & distance" LP.
