beats off (2014/BEACH IMPEDIMENT)
HARDCORE-PUNK. The anarcho-prostitutes of Chicago's GAS RAG return with the "beasts off", featuring 11 more tracks of the hardcore-punk that you dingles have come to know them for. GAS RAG continues to pay homage to their Midwestern homeland whilst sending warm regards to the distant land of Scandinavia all the while churning out a special brand of aggressive rock. This is a platter full of frantic yet tasteful riffs, a savage vocal delivery, and professionally executed pre-teen drumming - producing an end result that will inevitably aid in the listener's self destructive course of choice. Try not to freak the fuck out.
PLEASE INFORM THE CAPTAIN THIS IS A HIJACK
defeat or humiliate the united states of america (2006/CLEAN PLATE)
POST-HARDCORE. Warehouse found! After years of legal struggle, the much rumored final vision of PLEASE INFORM THE CAPTAIN THIS IS A HIJACK's 2nd full-length comes to light. "defeat or humiliate the united states of america" deliver 14 tracks of extremely well-crafted political hardcore, accompanied by a book of short stories. One would be unfortunately hard-pressed to find another band with such unique and inspiring power. Essential listening with intense packaging.

demo '14 (2014/LIFE TO LIVE)
HARDCORE. SELF DESTRUCT is a hardcore band from North Carolina with vibes of RIGHTEOUS JAMS and early-2000s Lockin' Out Records bands. Hand-numbered out of 100 copies.
HARDCORE. RITUAL CONTROL started in early 2013, drawing members from a healthy assortment of West-Coast hardcore acts. RITUAL CONTROL play a caustic, venomous, chaotic, and unhinged style of hardcore-punk. Sharp, heavy, and disconcerting hardcore – maybe they sound like the product of a combination of the members’ other bands (CONDITION, NO STATIK, EFFLUXUS), or maybe they just sound like RITUAL CONTROL. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
death friends (2014/IFB)
ALTERNATIVE/INDIE-ROCK. TAPE REC hails from Rio in Brasil and they play a perfect trip back to raw '90s grunge/indie/punk. This record really just has all the influences that a kid getting into music in the '90s would want - it's got the raw stripped down lo-fi sound that bands like THE BREEDERS and BUTTERGLORY do, with occasional noised out mania of SONIC YOUTH or PIXIES. The vocals are pure sugary gold, and even come with the occasional SCREECHING WEASEL style guitar lead. Seriously, this is just the catchiest, most infectious stuff with a perfect raw production - no polish here at all - perfect grunge-pop for your punk heart!
s/t (2015/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. MONGREL come crashing out of the gate with 5 songs of aggressive hardcore. Comprised of members of RESPONSE, GAG and STOIC VIOLENCE, MONGREL takes cues from early US hardcore while stripping everything down to its most rudimentary and caveman-like elements. Short, fast and hard as nails, MONGREL is here to take over. Limited edition of 100 copies.
hymns of slumber (2013/BLIND DATE)
SLUDGE-METAL/HARDCORE. FISTULA was born in Litchfield, a little dust speck, with cornfields and nothing around. This is their debut album "hymns of slumber". Originally released on Shifty Records on CD in 2001. Now, more than a decade later available for the 1st time on vinyl. Nihilistic, anti-social, primitive sludge. A thick, filthy, blackened crawl, howled demonic vox over caustic riffage and neanderthal drumming. If you are looking for the real sludgecore feeling you will dig this one. Vinyl is limited to 300 copies only!
space grind (2011/625)
GRINDCORE/NOISE. From the outer-cosmos comes the one-man-prog-blast unit PSUDOKU. Think MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA meets ORIGIN and DISCORDANCE AXIS, this is sure to perplex even as its crushing your skull into space-dust. Special packaging includes full color print with nebula space-dust ink. Fucking all-hail space-blast. Limited one time pressing to 500.
1985 demos (2013/WARDANCE)
HARDCORE/METAL. SACRILEGE (NY) was started in 1984 by AGNOSTIC FRONT, NAUSEA and REAGAN YOUTH members. This LP compiles 2 demos from 1985: one demo is a furious CRUCIFIX and DISCHARGE mix with strong political lyrics, the other demo is a punishing blend of raw thrash-metal in the KREATOR and SODOM vein. Several SACRILEDGE songs became NAUSEA songs, like the classic "fallout", as heard on the 1987 Revelation "the way it is" compilation. A full booklet with photos, flyers and recollections from band members plus liner notes by Freddy Alva accompany this release. Limited to 500 copies.
PUNK-ROCK. Austin, Texas has always been well known as a sound home to a strong and striving punk scene and the ALTARS are a stalwart among Austin’s countless other note-worthy punk bands. This, their debut LP, originally self-released on CDR demo format and now duly given the vinyl treatment, is not a far departure from the bands' former outfits, STORM THE TOWER and SIGNAL LOST. Much like the aforementioned bands, this LP features 10 tracks centered on complex yet melodic guitar work coupled with pounding drums and bass and altogether framed and structured in aggressive and driving rhythms where the vocals are sung more than screamed.
climax (2013/SVART/MAGIC BULLET)
POST-PUNK. "climax" is the debut full-length from Finnish apocalyptic post-punk-rock quartet BEASTMILK. The album features 10 songs of staggering refinement, brilliance, and complete mastery the likes of which only rarely appear on albums destined for classic, genre-cornerstone status. Instead of stereotypically brooding and glacially plodding through the inherent darkness cast of the poetic spells, the instrumentalists of BEASTMILK apply a unique, surging catchiness composed of infectious anthemic charges and unbreakable spirit from beginning to end. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
false xmas (2011/KATORGA WORKS)
POST-PUNK/NEW-WAVE. [reduced price] ( ) is the vinyl debut of MERCHANDISE's David Vassalotti's pet project. How do you pronounce it? "false xmas" was originally released as a seldom-heard tape on Cult Maternal, but now the 2 tracks found its way on vinyl. This particular ( ) record finds David channeling NEW ORDER through a more lo-fi lens with even worse vocals reciting emotionally devastating prose. These 2 songs make up what is a perfect pop single. The band is called "( )" or "parenthesis".
HARDCORE. Tough, bare-bones hardcore from Memphis, with even tougher intent. Charged and angry blasts of terse shouts, clean and jumpy guitars, pounding drums and loads of energy, recorded live in one take. Influenced by bands like SS DECONTROL, CITIZENS ARREST. Eight thrashing and raging hardcore anthems from DEATHREAT ( features members of HIS HERO IS GONE/TRAGEDY and SEVERED HEAD OF STATE). Limited colored (blue) edition.
cleveland power violence (2014/FUCK YOGA)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Since their inception over 20 years ago in Cleveland, Ohio- APARTMENT 213 has represented embodiment of inbred brutality and all things wrong.

Album includes 16 tracks from their collaborations with LOCKWELD and BASTARD NOISE. Limited to 500 copies.
POP-PUNK-ROCK. After two 7" releases BLANK PAGES finally released their outrageous 1st full-length.

Vinyl comes in a heavy gatefold-jacket.
