HARDCORE/METAL. "invite your soul" is the 2nd full-length by ZERO MENTALITY. It has been about 2 years since “this is the beginning” saw daylight. In the meantime ZERO MENTALITY have grown and evolved. The first thing that struck was the fact that ZERO MENTALITY doesn’t really sound hardcore anymore. “invite your soul” has become more a blend of rock, metal, hardcore and punk. The 11 songs on this album, clocking in at 44min. and this band has got a very own sound and they really try to do something different. If you always were into music that is fresh, diverse, heavy, crazy or emotional you should make "invite your soul" your next choice.

HARDCORE. For those around Buffalo in the late '80s/early '90s, ZERO TOLERANCE shows were "the" event.

Now Reaper Records is proud to unveil, for the 1st time on vinyl, a document of a long lost classic previously only available on tape. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. The final statement of Hamburg's ZEROID. Well, they got together one last time to record 8 depressive, dark and brutal tracks of their own! The record was produced by Dirk Kusche (Kuschelrock fame). All over the record they create a dark and devastating mood with a crushing wall of sound as well as short melodic pieces that are over and over again interrupted by their shattering darkness of cutting guitar riffs and punishing drums and stomping bass lines. ZEROID could be called the pissed version of NEUROSIS, URANUS or the darker version of ACME because they combine dark apocalytically tunes with crushing metallic hardcore. If you never heard of these German's before get this record. With their last suicide-rock effort they created their best work and one of the most exceptional hardcore records. [PK 045]

NOISE/PROGRESSIVE-ROCK. Whether it’s the packaging, the name or the 2 intense-looking bearded Italian blokes, something about ZEUS - suggests stoner sludge-doom. It is, then, a source of extreme and giddy delight to find that this band are far weirder and more interesting than all that. Theirs is a largely instrumental bass and drums hyper-prog, its manic energy, mischievous sensibility and super-intricate composition most likely inspired by the Tatsuya Yoshida school of impossible musics, but with added caustic metallicisms redolent of FANTOMAS or classic-era SLAYER. As an added treat, the titles are awash with delicious and terrible puns. As heavy as it is clever, as ridiculous as it is utterly, magnificently brilliant. Colored, thick 180gr vinyl includes a digital download card.

PUNK-ROCK. After the demise of GERM ATTAK, singer/guitarist Jo spent the next few year writing songs and plotting his next endeavor. In 2014 ZEX was born and they wasted no time taking the punk scene by storm releasing an astonishing two 7"s, an LP and several tapes all within a year. They're back with their 3rd 7" "fear no man" which packs a mean punch of melody and aggression. The b-side "i didn't know" comes off with the sort of effect you would expect out of VICE SQUAD covering "end of the century" era THE RAMONES. This record is the bands strongest material to date and a good indication even greater things are to come.

PUNK-ROCK. Ottawa, Canada's ZEX release their absolutely fantastic debut LP "fight for yourself". They are heavily influenced by 2nd and 3rd wave U.K. punk that will remind you of bands like VICE SQUAD. Channeling traditional heavy-metal crunch and leads into their classic punk-rock approach, ZEXs "fight for yourself" drops 10 insatiably infectious and fully unruly anthems.

Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. ZODIAC from Bremen, Germany deliver their follow up to their "rasierter affe" 10" from 2009. ZODIAC plays a dark and brutal mix of hardcore and (death)-metal, with a crusty side to it, like it was played in Bremen in the '90s (think CAROL, MÖRSER, SYSTRAL, just with a Swedish touch). Members have been in MINION and AGE, so you might know, from which direction the storm is blowing. The really good lyrics in German are dealing with personal issues, religion, idiocy of mankind and other fucked up subjects of the human race. "menschenstaub" has a very organic and brutal sound, fitting exactly to the content of this LP. Vinyl contains a huge record-size 20-pages booklet containing the lyrics and liner notes packed in a beautiful artwork-concept and a digital download card.

ELECTRO/AMBIENT-POP. The 2011 breakthrough album by ZOLA JESUS, now available on gray-and-clear smoke vinyl. Nika Roza Danilova has gone from being an outsider experimental teenage noise-maker to a full fledged internationally celebrated electronic pop musician. Her voice is unmistakable; it cuts right to the core. Conatus is a huge leap forward in production, instrumentation and song structure. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

ELECTRO/AMBIENT-POP. For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as ZOLA JESUS. Fittingly, the 11 electronics-driven songs on "okovi" share musical DNA with her early work on Sacred Bones. The music was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory. With "okovi", ZOLA JESUS has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre. The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
