SXE-HARDCORE.A CHORUS OF DISAPPROVAL formed out of frustration to the hectic and undisciplined punk scene. Taking cues from the more extreme East-Coast hardcore bands mixed with their own groove and style, the CHORUS would arguably be the blueprint for the burgeoning, West-Coast, militant straight-edge scene. Originally released 30 years ago on the formative Nemesis Records, "truth gives wings to strength" became an instant classic that has gone on to influence countless bands. Colored (silver) vinyl is limited to 350 copies and includes a digital download card.

INDIE/EMO-ROCK. Southern California's A CURSIVE MEMORY bring some fluffy pop hooks and rock sensibility to this debut full-length, which is 12 tracks of infectious melodies and driving guitars. "changes" is their 1st full-length but with years of playing together under their belt they have assembled a catchy and streamlined album for the masses. After listening to the 12 tracks you will be hard pressed to not singalong yourself. A CURSIVE MEMORY brings to mind bands like ARMOR FOR SLEEP, JIMMY EAT WORLD and SAY ANYTHING.

POP-PUNK. A LOSS FOR WORDS bid adieu with this final full-length.

PUNK-ROCK. The amazing A PAGE OF PUNK from Japan are back with their new 49 song album! A PAGE OF PUNK are a frighteningly explosive, 100% energy, raw punk-rock band from Tokyo. Formed in 2001, they have played a prominent and hugely active role in the Japanese underground scene for over 12 years. Their short and fast manic punk-rock aligns perfectly with abrasive vocals covering issues mainly concerned with political/social injustice and also about just how god-damn much they love punk-rock!

POST/NOISE-PUNK. Yes, "onwards to the wall" packs every bit of the searing sonic maelstrom listeners have come to expect from A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS. Yet, the adroit songcraft that's always been there is brought more the fore, pop hooks are repurposed and more instantly recognizable. A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS proves that they have not only been leading that charge for some time now, but that they are also evolving and maturing on those front lines. "onwards to the wall" is a fresh, complete artistic statement from APTBS. It's a new chapter, a prelude for what awaits us on the horizon. It is a taste of greatness to come.

POST/NOISE-PUNK. Their 5th full-length finds A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. The noise-rock outlaws exist in a dimension of their own, fusing punishing, abrasive frequencies with moments of lucid melodic clarity. There's a sense of paranoia running through the songwriting that could only come from A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS. This album definitely does explore some new territory. It may alienate some current fans, but welcome new ones into the fold at the same time. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST/NOISE-PUNK. "transfixiation" is A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS' 4th album. Rather than fixate on precious recording techniques and minute details like they may have done in the past. From the tortured straight-to-tape transmission of "i will die" and molten funk melodies of "straight" to the violent guitar spasms, cannon-like drums and not-so-idle threats of "deeper", this is very much an unpredictable record.

CD 12.50€*

 

POST/NOISE-PUNK. Guitars as jet engines; guitars as haunted electronics; guitars as filling-melting white heat: A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS' new album "worship" is explosive, visceral, and dark. The duo continue the evolution of songwriting that began with "onwards to the wall", interweaving threads of krautrock, dream-pop, and '80s goth without ever losing the edge that is quintessentially strangers. There are ambitious, trend-bucking choices at every turn. A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS simply push itself further in all aspects of their music.

METALCORE. Coming at you in a blaze of high-end solos, A PLEA FOR PURGING waste no time in proving their instrumental prowess. Both guitarists leave no room for the nondescript breakdowns that seem to saturate the current metalcore market. Pouring forth such intensity and precision they are a sort of threshing combine running at peak performance producing highly contagious riffs and infectious harmonies. This is an amazing album. If you’re into this genre, you will like this album - that’s all there is to it.

CD 8.00€*

 

METALCORE. This 2 song 7" was originally offered only through Facedown Records' mailorder as a bonus with the pre-order package for "the life & death of a plea for purging". It features the b-side "fat pride". For fans of FOR TODAY and MESHUGGAH. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

METALCORE. A PLEA FOR PURGING have never been a band to stay in the proverbial box. Their new album, "the life & death of a plea for purging", proves, yet again, how versatile and multifaceted these musicians really are. The excellent brutality the band has cultivated over the years is present on this full-length; existing in perfect harmony with the metallic hardcore they've become known for, are some intense acoustic tracks. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

PROGRESSIVE-METAL. Led by NEUROSIS' Josh Graham, A STORM OF LIGHT take the lumbering slowness of sludge-metal to new levels, occasionally riffing at a pace where you forget what the last chord sounded like while you're waiting for the next one. Filling in the gaps, you're presented with a doubled-up drumming approach courtesy of ex-SWANS skinsman Vincent and SATANIZED's Pete, who add an enormous amount of weight to the mix, punctuating monolithic outpourings of low end abrasion on "undertow" with snares that sound like the blasts of distant cannons.

CD 14.00€*

 

PROGRESSIVE-METAL. Every few years a collaboration stands above the myriad split releases that are haphazardly scrapped together. "primitive north" is what 2 strong bands can create when their forces are joined together. Colored (red) vinyl comes housed in a eyecatching gatefold-cover with an etching on the 4th-side and a CD version.
