Blasts of melodic energy, swaggered with distortion and noise, thrashed out at top speed. An intense tremor of the hardcore punk explosion, crash landing into a Tulsa, Oklahoma Cowboy bar in 1983 on "Punk Night". No nonsense, straight-forward hardcore punk rock, soaked and steeped in enough rock and '77 catchy punk to surface hooks, choruses and melody amidst the blur. Recorded live in 1983, "Live At The Crystal Pistol" was originally released as None Of The Above's demo tape and predates all of their vinyl releases. The demo impressed Maximum RockNRoll enough to include the demo song "Propaganda Control" on their seminal international punk compilation "Welcome To 1984." N.O.T.A. released two 7"s "Moscow" (on Unclean Records) and "Toy Soldiers" (on Rabid Cat), and one self-titled LP (om Rabid Cat) in the 1980s. The 1990s saw a reunion of the band with new members and releases on Unclean and Havoc Records. "Live At The Crystal Pistol" includes five unreleased songs from 1983 and raw, energetic and unpolished versions of classic songs such as "Nightstick Justice," "Moscow," and "On The Pavement." The packaging is similarly raw, true to the demo and the time, with new liner notes from lead singer Jeff Klein.

STONER/DOOM-ROCK. On their self titled debut NAAM conjures both post-apocalyptic dazzle and unsettling feeling via punishing, deeply penetrating repetition and twisted vapor trails of guitar. NAAM’s raw, feedback-powered sound pools densely distorted riff-o-rama with throbbing bass lines and echoey, buzzy vocals that seem to hang in the open spaces in between. Calling for comparison to HAWKWIND, SLEEP, DEAD MEADOW.

INDIE-ROCK. The long out of print NADA SURF "Karmic" release is finally repressed. This release offers up a portrait of NADA SURF in its formative stage, before the New York City-based power-pop band made the leap to a major label during the alternative-rock boom in 1996. With its relatively lo-fi production and restless energy, "Karmic" highlights NADA SURF's punchy, guitar-driven attack more than frontman Matthew Caws's earnest charm or keen songcraft making. This is the one that started it all! "Karmic" includes abonus track called "Pressure free" that has only been previously available on a rare 7''.

DRONE/AMBIENT. This recording (on a single sided 7") demonstrates NADJA's ability to fuse their sound to the construct of the pop cover, with the cover in question being "long dark twenties", which was written by Paul Bellini of THE KIDS IN THE HALL! In doing so, NADJA displays traits rarely exibited in their music, like full vocals, drumming, even the good old classic pop chorus, all in such a remarkable way this it shows all that the possibilities for reinvention with this group are far from exausted. Comes with hand letterpressed covers (both inside and out) and will be available in colored vinyl.

DRONE/AMBIENT. Canadian doomgazers NADJA make an outstanding contribution to Southern's ongoing Latitudes series with this immense album, divided into 2 long-form compositions. The 1st, "jaguar" is a slow-building droner that builds up into a booming low-end dominated soundscape that exudes abstract sludge-maetal gravitas. "sky burial" is quicker to assert itself, cranking up the NADJA drum machine to a curmudgeonly bpm count and wailing through fizzy, colourful walls of electronics bass that lurch about in a minor key.

DRONE/AMBIENT. When the esteemed Canadian avant-drone duo NADJA and the German experimental drone pioneers TROUM combine their exceptional styles, they form something more vast than their parts. These 3 collaborative tracks are the result of aspontaneous improvisation in 2008. The songs' powerful and emotional drone melancholy work in many micro-and-macrocosmic ways. After the excellent collaboration record with PYRAMIDS another masterpiece from NADJA. Limited to 500 copies on 180gr vinyl.

DOOM-METAL. Good things come to those who doom: 18 years have passed since NAEVUS from Southern Germany have released their debut album via Rise Above Records. After a 13-year break (1999 - 2012) the four-piece decided to start working on a 2nd release. Four years later "heavy burden" is finally out. Those who have listened to the German doom institution in their earlier days will notice that NAEVUS take a more laid-back stance nowadays than they did at the end of the '90s. Groovy, occasionally jazzy doom-metal, hard rocking stoner parts, the mellow vocals, the well-versed drumming: NAEVUS have grown up, but don't sound less compromising in the slightest. Colored vinyl comes in a gatefold-sleeve with additional lyric booklet (12 pages) and includes a digital download card.

SINGER/SONGWRITER. Some people go a lifetime without knowing their mission in life, without feeling they have true calling, and without knowing why they even do what they do. NAHKO is not one of them. And that calling and mission has never been clearer than it is on NAHKO AND MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE's 3rd full-length album. On "hako", Oregon-born singer/songwriter NAHKO's voice is strong. His mission is clear. The mandate has been thrown down. It's what Crazy Horse would say when he went into battle, "hoka, hey!" action to the words and the lyrics. Colored vinyl comes housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. After years in the warehouse Power It Up got the complete pressing from the never released triple 7" from vicious Australian head-grinders NAILED DOWN. You'll get 16 studio-recorded tracks of ultra-barbaric hardcore destruction. In fact, they cover NEGATIVE FX - although NAILED DOWN takes strong influences from early '80s Boston hardcore, it's not exactly in that style. The catchiness and hooks of those bands are substituted with blasting brutality, sort of like the way in which Infest was influenced by Boston hardcore.

HARDCORE/METAL. NAILS, tyrants of the American underground, have triumphantly completed their 2nd full-length "abandon all life". Recorded at Godcity these 10 tracks of barbaric rage have no resemblance to the laughable, retro party metal that passes as extreme music in today's world. Instead, NAILS carpet bombs the listener with their horrifying brand of death/grind/hardcore chaos; flawlessly blending shades of SUFFOCATION, early NASUM, and CELTIC FROST with their own sadistic aggression. With profound hatred, the howling war cry of "abandon all life" shows NAILS as a band without equal in their class. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover including a silver Southern Lord Records 20th anniversary foil-stamp on the back.

HARDCORE/METAL. "unsilent death" consists of 10 unrelenting and unapologetic songs with a sound not unlike the late '80s Earache Records catalog mixed with early power-violence. Recorded during the cold winter at Kurt Ballou's Godcity Studio. NAILS sounds like ENTOMBED covering NAPALM DEATH and DROP DEAD. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover including a silver Southern Lord Records 20th anniversary foil-stamp on the back.

HARDCORE/METAL. NAILS continues their upward trajectory in the metal and hardcore world with their 1st full-length for Nuclear Blast Records. With roots firmly planted in the hardcore and punk scenes, this California band has put out records on Six Feet Under and Southern Lord Records, and with each getting heavier and angrier, creating a snarling hybrid of hardcore and blasting, grinding metal that has garnered the band rave reviews while finding the band headlining festivals and shows all over the globe.

HARDCORE-PUNK - Vendetta! Over 2 years after their powerful debut album, here's the next self-titled output by NAKAM from Tübingen, Germany. Six steamroller hardcore-punk songs full of anger, angst and alienation - '80s for sure. A self-obsessed bastard between POISON IDEA, ANTI CIMEX and BOMBENALARM. The facts for statisticians and cross-reference lovers: NAKAM are ex-NIHIL BAXTER, DERBY DOLLS and DANGER! DANGER! members. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
