DEATH-METAL. Old-school death-metal of the highest order here from Norwegian maniacs OBLITERATIONH. The band rose up from the woods of Kolbotn (the same small village that DARKTHRONE) in 2001, and have been blazing a trail through the metal scene. This is death-metal from back in the days before there was a clear distinction between the Florida sound and the Stockholm sound. It's chock full of razor-sharp riff breakdowns, c-r-a-w-l-i-n-g doom-filled riffage, eerie discordant guitars throaty, phelgm-spattered vocals and guttural death grunts. Think of early DEATH, PESTILENCE or AUTOPSY. Comes with gatefold sleeve.
BRUTAL TRUTH / BASTARD NOISE, THE
the axiom of post inhumanity (2013/RELAPSE)
NOISE/ELECTRONIC/GRINDCORE. THE BASTARD NOISE and BRUTAL TRUTH have a combined 4 decades of grinding noise dominance. On this split, both legendary bands team up for a split record of harsh, power-electronic noise insanity.
in control (2010/DR. STRANGE)
HARDCORE. This is yet another classic reisuue. STALAG 13 emerged from the Nardcore scene of the early 80's along with other greats such as: AGGRESSION, IlL REPUTE, STRETCH MARKS; R.K.L. and Dr. KNOW. More than 20 years after its original release Oxnard's STALAG 13 return. On this well done reissue, packed in the original classic artwork you get all the tracks from the original full-length, and 4 unreleased bonus songs. This is straight-edge skate-hardcore in the vein it should be.
more reality (2009/SLASHER)
HARDCORE. Channelling early '80s Boston and New York hardcore, Toronto, Canada's URBAN BLIGHT tear through 10 tracks of fast, pissed off hardcore with an authentic sounding recording and blown out vocals on music that's comparable to THE ABUSED, STRAIGHT AHEAD, SSD and NEGATIVE FX.
stray from the path (2013/START A FIRE)
HARDCORE. After 2 awesome 7"s, WOLF DOWN from the Ruhrpott area unleashes their debut album. "stray from the path" is 11 new tracks build that features guest vocals by Jogges/EMPOWERMENT and Greg Bennick/TRIAL. The colored vinyl comes in a fancy gatefold-cover with an astonishing artwork, huge booklet and includes a digital download card. With this record, WOLF DOWN raised the bar for european hardcore into new heights!
dog food (2010/IMPEDANCE)
STONER-ROCK. What do Nick Oliveri (KYUSS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE etc.), Dave Grohl (NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS, THEM CROOKED VULTURES), Happy Tom (TURBONEGRO) and The Fresh Prince Of Darkness (DWARVES) all have in common? Aside from the fact they all play in some of the best bands to ever grace the earth, they all feature on the 7" from Los Angeles band MONDO GENERATOR. "dog food" is the 1st taste of who is featured on the album. Limited edition...hurry up!
CÜLO / TENEMENT
HARDCORE-PUNK. This split deliver 2 of the USA's best bands and both hail from the neighboring states of Wisconsin and Illinois. CÜLO delivers 4 songs of their style of hardcore-punk you've come to expect and TENEMENT dish out 2 songs of melodic-punk with heavy riffage, pop backbeat and SST style flair. Comes with nice covers and housed in a black dust sleeve, small press of 500 copies. Midwest is the best!
turmoil (2010/AGIPUNK/POWER IT UP)
CRUST-HARDCORE. Return of the swedish crustmongers! "turmoil" contains 12 new tracks of traditional swedish d-beat crust. UNCURBED can be compared to bands such as SKITSYSTEM or WOLFBRIGADE. This is their 1st recording with their new vocalist Mattias Bergfelt who did an excellent job! Vinyl comes with gatefold-cover.
HARDCORE. Here's the newest output from Buffalo NY's favorite sons, BROWN SUGAR. An odd record as one would expect from these guys but more so this time that these 4 tracks actually sound like they bridge the musical gap from their 1st record "deportation" to the bands' classic "sings of birds and racism" LP, but also again still its own record devoid of coincidence with its weird bass lines and song structure. If you already love this band you won't be sorry about getting this record.
HOT WATER MUSIC
till the whels fall of (2008/NO IDEA)
EMO-PUNK. "till the wheels fall off" is a collection of rare songs, b-sides, compilation tracks, outtakes, covers and split releases. Included are songs from the out-of-print "moonpies for misfits" 7", their splits with ALKALINE TRIO and LEATHERFACE, and 5 songs recorded over the span of their 3 albums on Epitaph. The selection of bands they cover is pretty insane too: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, LEATHERFACE, ALKALINE TRIO, GOVERNMENT ISSUE, MIDNIGHT OIL, CIRCLE JERKS, THE CLASH and TURBONEGRO. The DoLP will be on multiple kinds of colored vinyl!
fun (2014/THIS CHARMING MAN)
POST/NOISE-PUNK. Hailing fromSouth Germany, these young trio steped back into the past and inhaled a good deep breath of '80s noise-post-punk. Maybe they flipped too often through their older brothers or sisters record-collection, but the old stuff, before they were born, definately gets them the goosebums. Their 2nd full-length, "fun" gives you a good impression of a nihilistic and disorientated youth. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
make it through the night (2011/STATIC AGE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Their 1st full-length album after a bunch of 7"s of these Portland veterans. All you need to know is that this is some urgent punked out hardcore the way it is supposed to be played. They have slashing guitars with pounding drums that rise out of the discordant noise climaxing into a screaming rant. Featuring former members of POISON IDEA, DETESTATION, SEVERED HEAD OF STATE etc.. This is fucking high-energy, rocked-out fucking hardcore-punk done exactly right. Just killer!
it's a warning (singles & live) (2013/STATIC SHOCK)
PUNK-ROCK. NAPALM from Hamburg, Germany started in 1979 and packed it in 1982/1983 after recording only two 7". Already having made their 1st attempts in bands like COPSLAYER, GUTTERSNIPES, BORSTAL BOYS, SCREAMER and NO ONE, they formed NAPALM. "it's a warning" contain all their recorded works: both their 7"s + some live songs. NAPALM may not have made an impact in punk, but punk has for sure made an impact on them. This record has been released to make the stuff available on regular priced vinyl again, as the original recordings are offered for undecent prices.
EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING
demon's demands/i'm guilty (2008/IRON LUNG)
PUNK-ROCK. If you are new to Australia's EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING, then get ready to be rocked in a whole other way. These 2 songs are totally hypnotic, engaging, garage(ish) rave-ups that transcend convention and genre expectation. One of the most exciting and honest bands to come around in a long time. Shit, these guys won the Australian Music Prize for their last album "primary colours".
diamonds in the ditch (2009/SUBURBAN HOME/YO-YO)
FOLK/EMO-PUNK. Fueled by whiskey and beer, YESTERDAY'S RING decided to start writing folk/country songs influenced by a mix of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, JOHNNY CASH and punk-heroes like Tim Armstrong of RANCID, Joe Strummer of THE CLASH and Shane Macgowan of THE POGUES. Country, folk, rock, punk and influenced by the greatest songwriters of our time.
