HARDCORE. Patrick Haemers was a criminal from Brussels who was part of a gang known for its violent robberies on money transports back in the '80s. This band took up his name to unleash their violent attacks onto us, successfully so. The new breed of stomping Boston style '80s hardcore with pissed off vocals. Ex-members of HESSIAN, VOGUE and IMAGIANARY DICTIONARY. HAEMERS sound like a blend of these bands actually. The debut 7" contains the 3 tracks from the demo tape as well as 3 more unreleased songs!

SLUDGE-METAL. HAGGATHA excavate primordial doom from deep beneath the Earth’s crust, conjuring some lamentable ancient devastation. Desperate, ruinous sludge from a cataclysmic prehistory that claws it’s way back into the folds of the reptile consciousness in a torrent of hopeless murk. Vancouver’s enduring traffickers of sludge defilement return with their 3rd full-length album and 5th solo release, appropriately titled "V". Six tracks of churning riff demolition clocking in at almost 40min. in a sleek package that continues the core aesthetic of the band emblem, this time in a black on black motif utilizing a spot gloss uv print. Current and ex-members of BISON BC, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, GOATSBLOOD and OSK.

POST-HARDCORE/METALCORE. Sonically, "mental knife" is the closest the band has come to realizing the sound they've sought since forming in 2009. The band lived largely in the same creative space for this record as they did on its predecessors - "culture scars" (2016) and "secret wars" (2017). However, all 4 members of the band have elevated their already impressive style of play on "mental knife" - pushing the limit of what is capable when walking the delicate line between intricate song arrangements and massive riffs and thundering rhythms. Thick 180gr vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. When HAIL THE SUN entered the studio to record what would become "new age filth", they knew they were setting out to make their most collaborative and diverse album yet. The 10 songs on "new age filth" showcase the band's post-hardcore roots blended with elements of alternative and progressive-rock, proving the band's ability to be extremely technical in instrumentation while also unleashing some of the catchiest hooks they've ever created. The lyrics center around the theme of reflection, weaving through painful and emotional experiences of love, cynicism, and touching on how awful humans can be to one another. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE-PUNK. After turning some heads with their debut 7" entitled "shutting down", released on the high-quality Feel It Records label back in 2017, HAIRCUT has finally unleashed their follow-up with the "sensation" 7". Four tracks of pummeling hardcore-punk that retain the velocity and ferocity of the band's previous output whilst adding a decisive dose of meat and potatoes to the sonic formula, all the while Juliana belts out lyrics in both Spanish and English at a feverish pace. Each record comes in a glue-pocket sleeve.

CRUST-HARDCORE. Japan's HAKUCHI getting the long awaited vinyl treatment they deserve. HAKUCHI spanned 1991-1994 and released two 7"s and several demos and compilation appearances. Members would later go on to form one of the more prolific bands in the Japanese metal/punk scene A.G.E.. While their early recordings follow the more classic japanese hardcore tradition of the time they morphed into their own unique crust style that peaked with their '93 "god's disturb" 7" on Overthrow Records. While you can hear the nods to AMEBIX and EXTREME NOISE TERROR, these punks were blazing their own trail.

PUNK-ROCK. The 2nd album of the Flensburg punk trio including Piet of TURBOSTAAT on drums. Founded as a fun project of work mates they got really famous for rockin as hell live on stage.

DOOM-METAL. BATILLUS a band comprised of members of bands such as A STORM OF LIGHT and INSWARM takes extreme doom to the extreme. The 3 installments by BATILLUS are epic and psychedelic doom inspired tracks, they have megaton weighted riffs, an almost ISIS and MINSK atmosphere in areas that is equal parts dense and melodic, and a great variation of tempos. HALLOWED BUTCHERY is a solo prog-doom project masterfully pulled off by Ryan Scott Fairfield makes up the last portion of this split with his ambitious and brilliant “coffin life”. The track starts out in a compressed almost NEUROSIS style slow and funereal sludge and doom riff assault complete with great bluesy riffs and solo bits thrown in that scream '70s doom groove. Essential for fans of MINSK, MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT, NEUROSIS etc.. A colossal and sophisticated dark and psychedelic/black/doom influenced masterpiece!

HARDCORE. Formed in Copenhagen, Denmark only 2 years ago, the riotous, young act, HALSHUG, unloads some of the most traditionally-styled crust d-beat hardcore to be found. The enraged sentiment of archetypal leaders of the genre, DOOM, ANTI-CIMEX and, no doubt, DISCHARGE, and direct influence from INFERNOH, HOAX and DEATH TOKEN are unapologetically present. This, fueled by society's modern-day ills, finds HALSHUG already in line with NUCLEAR DEATH TERROR, WOLFBRIGADE, SKITSYSTEM and the best of the movement's current top acts.

LP 20.00€*

 

HARDCORE. Copenhagen, Denmark-based trio HALSHUG released their 3rd studio full-length. On "drom" HALSHUG expands their sound from the dirge-driven d-beat of their earlier albums, and explores the dynamics of longer songs, more audible lyrics, and altered tempos, which result in different shades of industrial, dark-wave, and post-punk.

LP 18.50€*

 

CRUST-HARDCORE. "sort sind" is the 2nd album from the Danish d-beat punk destroyers. HALSHUG firming up their fundamental take on hardcore-punk with Scandinavian leanings and the signature biting blend of d-beat and distorted stomp. Rather than succumbing to the trappings of sub-genres, HALSHUG intuitively blast out pure hardcore tracks that make fists clench and bodies slam. "sort sind" is as gritty as it gets without shedding any of the crucial coherence that makes HALSHUG so memorable.
