NO MISTAKE / BACK OFF
split (2014/NO MISTAKE)
HARDCORE. If you're looking for stripped-down, early '80s hardcore that is tough as fuck, NO MISTAKE from San Jose and BACK OFF from Hungary won't let you down. This is for anyone who likes THE ABUSED, DYS, NEGATIVE APPROACH, or MINOR THREAT. In addition to the solid music, non-standard lyics stand out. NO MISTAKE's sound is even more refined than their debut 7", and features Mike Bullshit from GO! BACK OFF features members of CRIPPLED FOX and MOTIVATION. Includes a cover of SSD's "boiling point". Crucial record on crucial marble vinyl.
chained (2014/DERANGED/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. Regular pressing! The final document from Southern California hardcore workhorse STOIC VIOLENCE. "chained" is 8 songs that took over 2 years to craft and execute. Unrelenting, angry, unbridled US hardcore the way it was meant to be played. STOIC VIOLENCE plays a stripped down, primitive, and spite fueled style of hardcoreNegative hardcore for negative people. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover.
weltschmerz (2014/TO LIVE A LIE)
GRINDCORE. Distilling years of basement grinding into one throbbing opus, CHEST PAIN has emerged after a period of relative inactivity to unveil their best sounding and most unique record yet. "weltschmerz" starts with the distinctive oeuvre of power-violence and drifts through the sonic territory of bands like GASP, SWANS, and KILLING JOKE while remaining entirely its own trip. CHEST PAIN has unfrozen the sound of caveman hardcore for the anatomically modern human populace.

the discography (2013/PARADE)
HARDCORE. Complete discography of this Spanish hardcore band which played intermittently from 1999 to 2004, and which created an original and abrasive blend of screamo and power-violence.

Release contains 9 tracks (includes the 4 tracks of their debut 7", 2 other 1999 tracks on the a side, and 3 rehearsal tracks from 2004 on the b-side. Remastered and pressed on heavy 180gr vinyl.
s/t (2011/FASHIONABLE IDIOTS)
PUNK-GARAGE-ROCK. First up, Cleveland dummies FOLDED SHIRT return to burn with this highly anticipated long player. Moron punk greatness caused by some ex members of DARVOCETS and the HOMOSTUPIDS. The tracks comprise awkward, clangorous guitar stabs, elastic basslines and daft squawks which sounds like the whole thing flapping round in big idiot circles like a parrot with a broken wing.
nu borjar minnena komma tillbaka (2009/NO WAY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Sweden’s NITAD offer on this platter 4 great new tracks of their awesome brand of Swedish meets US hardcore-punk. This is definetly their best stuff to date. Best songwriting, best recording, best art, just all around perfect. The songs are catchy but just so powerful and in-your-face, it’s ridiculous. This isn’t rehash hardcore-punk, that’s why it’s so hard to describe and their so underestimated, but do yourself a favor and pick it up, NITAD rules!
executed (2009/GRAVE MISTAKE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Recorded in the same session as "paranoid mess", this was originally intended to be a European tour 7" but Grave Mistake just opted to make it a proper release instead. The title track charges through at varying speeds, musically taking cues from "kings of punk"-era POISON IDEA topped with Kenny's biting vocal delivery, while the flipside backhands you with one quick ripper in standard GOVERNMENT WARNING fashion, followed up with a BATTALION OF SAINTS cover.
life's a dead end (2006/GRAVE MISTAKE)
HARDCORE. On their 2nd 7", CARDIAC ARREST deliver 6 more ripping tracks of fast and pissed hardcore, reminiscent of early Boston bands like NEGATIVE FX or the F.U.'s. If you picked up their debut you should have an idea of what to expect. This 7" will have you floored before you even realize what hit you. Short, fast, raw, abrasive and in-your-face, exactly how hardcore was meant to be played.
aarh fuck.. (2009/FASHIONABLE IDIOTS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Now available as us-pressing! What’s up with Denmark? Do they have a punk lab that distills some of the best and most exciting hardcore-punk bands? Following on the heels of their full-length on Hjernespind/No Way, Danish punks HJERTESTOP deliver 6 melodic, fast hardcore-punk numbers in the same style as fellow countrymen YOUNG WASTENERS, as well as American classics like ZERO BOYS.
s/t (2011/NO WAY)
HARDCORE-PUNK. DRY SPELL's one of Richmond's hardest working bands at the moment, and this LP definetly shows them at their peak. Driving mid tempo punk to full on hardcore with tune-age that immediately gets stuck in your head. The best thing really about DRY SPELL is you can't pidgeon hole them into one genre. You can hear influence from "feel the darkness" era POISON IDEA, mid tempo parts of JERRY'S KIDS, maybe throw in some TURBONEGRO, some Late '70s KBD-punk and '70s rock all at the same time. This lp is 10 great songs, none of them too long to keep your interest.
HARDCORE. This is the 1st LP from SNAKE RUN, a band featuring members of VACANT STATE, SHOOK ONES and CONDOMINIUM. A definite influence of what was later became VACANT STATE, but without the ultra-stripped-down sound that is that band's trademark. The label calls it ROLLINS-era 'FLAG worship, but it's a lot more punk than that description would lead you to believe. Basically, this is rough and mean hardcore with some inventive bass playing and some unexpected riffing. Originally recorded in 2004 and put out on a short run of tapes, this has been one of the best releases from the Northwest. Limited to only 250 copies, so don't expect this to stick around forever.
walking on the string (2008/NO WAY)
PUNK-HARDCORE. "walking on the string" contains 4 songs of killer spanish punk for fans of old punk and hardcore where the song matters a little more than the noise. Catchy as hell, but still hardcore in the way that REAGAN YOUTH, BLITZ and DESCENDENTS were. This is also a must have for fans of bands like PELIGRO SOCIAL or NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS.
