EMO/INDIE-ROCK. Building off the rich history of the Washington, DC scene, OLYMPIA is able to draw from the diverse anthology of the bands that came before them. Where other bands end up being carbon copies of a fleeting trend, OLYMPIA has forged a sound all their own. If the Washington, DC music scene is a barrel full of gasoline, then OLYMPIA is the box of matches. All the credit in the world is due to OLYMPIA for at least trying. There's a lot of variety on "Emergencies", from slower songs to solid rock tracks and the sporadic appearance of an original-sounding riff. Ultimately however, "Emergencies" is hardly composed of crises worth one's attention. Olympia's "Emergencies" is the full-length follow-up to their limited MCD and features 11 songs in the vein of FAIRWEATHER , ARMOR FOR SLEEP and even the FOO FIGHTERS.

PSYCHEDELIC-METAL. The legendary rhythm section of SLEEP: Chris Hakius and Al Cisneros deliver a classic album recorded by Steve Albini. "pilgrimage" is OM's 3rd full-length. Four songs featuring OM's unique use of riff, cadence and chant. Lyrical themes address the processes of mind, psychic reality, astral and causal planes of being, and the nature of the soul. Motifs that were initiated on the band's previous album are continued here unabated. This European version, comes on colored (clear) vinyl and is packaged in a stoughton gatefold-jacket.

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK/DOOM. Founded in 2006, OMEGA MASSIF quickly seized the attention and interest of listeners from several genres (metal to doom to sludge to instrumental postrock) through the years. Their 2nd album "karpatia", again unites the well known calm melodic components with an immense dynamic and dark feeling in the monolithic heavy parts. In contrast to other instrumental bands, OMEGA MASSIF invent their own sound and are able to maintain the tension throughout the whole record without the usage of cheap climax ideas. Limited to 500 copies in thick cardboard sleeves with spine.

ANARCHO-PUNK-ROCK. Remastered vinyl reissue of the debut and only OMEGA TRIBE album, originally released in late 1983 on Corpus Christi Records. The album was recorded by Guitarist Pete Fender deep in the Poison Girl’s basement studio and contains 11 punk anthems with a pop sensibility missed by most of their curse of 1983 peers. OMEGA TRIBE were one of the few bands that had a much more softer, poetic and melodic style of playing that still managed to impress, educate and influence their audiences. It was protest music with a heart and sense of love that still is relevant 35 years later. This album has never been reissued and deserves it's place right next to THE MOB, HEX, ZOUNDS and POISON GIRLS.

HARDCORE. Montreal-based, lords of slam-skank OMEGAS have to be one of the best bands in hardcore at the moment. Their brand of anthemic hardcore gives devotion to their NYC and Boston hardcore influences with a uniquely snarky street-punk attitude, all of which is filtered through a little crazy, making the title of their debut LP all too appropriate. "blasts of lunacy" is 12 tracks of hardcore wizardry. This particular release sees the band emphasizing their NYC influences even more than on previous material. With this 23min. LP the band has proven that it is able to maintain momentum through an entire full-length and that their particular brand of over-the-top hardcore.

HARDCORE. Much anticipated answer to 2011's "blasts of lunacy", the OMEGAS leave off where they picked up, coming back to their personalized vision of the nooks and crannies of early NYHC and proto hardcore cum Darby Crash cum Nollywood prankster at ever more obtuse and challenging angles. The riffs implode and the changes are impossible to follow without a map that probably leads somewhere unpleasant.

HARDCORE. Unlasting the 4 punks of THE OMNIPRESENT DISEASE are releasing their own 9 track 10" after their split with ALARMSTUFE GERD. "dressed like you" is a dirty and disowned platter, seeking for hideous revenge, ahungered, cornered but ready for anything. THE OMNIPRESENT DISEASE belongs to the precious few hardcore-punk bands, that typify what punk really means.

HARDCORE. These 9 tracks collects both ON BODIES releases; "the long con" 10" from 2013 and the "unremarkably mortal" 7" from 2014. Damien Moyal (AS FRIENDS RUST, SHAI HULUD) and Rich Thurston (CULTURE, BLOOD HAS BEEN SHED, TERROR) team up once again to make hardcore that is at times fast, at times heavy and at times melodic, but all the time passionate and well-thought out.

SXE-HARDCORE. ON MY SIDE is a young Houston hardcore band whose intention is to play fast, straight-edge hardcore reminiscent of bands like YOUTH OF TODAY, DESPERATE MEASURES, BEYOND. Following on the successes of "redefinition", ON MY SIDE are back in with their sophomore full-length release titled "grow". And what better name to title an album that clearly defines the maturity of a band that once played music drawn by their influences, to a band that has gone beyond to set lyrical and musical inspiration for new Texas hardcore bands?

Brutaler S.E. Hardcore aus dem schoenen Suedflorida, der die persoenlichen und gutgemeinten lyrics mit einer unglaublichen Intensitaet rueberbringt. Treibende Beats, ein schnaubender Saenger und Hintergrundchoere beim Refrain. Allerdings sind ON OUR OWN keine klassische Old School Band, sondern eher eine schnelle und kompromisslose moderne Band mit reichlich Tempo und vielen altbekannten Elementen, wie Moshparts, Circlepit-tauglichen Slampassagen und Refrains zum Mitschreien. Sehr zuegige und wuetende 12 Songs mit Titeln wie 'Think for myself', 'Torn apart' und 'Living a lie', die einfach nur so krachen und Freunden von TERROR sehr zusagen sollten ,auch wenn die Texte nicht so hasserfuellt sind. Die Band ist in Amerika schon keine unbekannte mehr und spielte dort schon mit UNTIL THE END, WHERE FEAR AND WEAPONS MEET, HOODS, RINGWORM, COMEBACK KID, STRETCH ARMSTRONG und vielen anderen.

POST-HARDCORE. Victory Records bringen uns mit dieser Band aus Seattle einen weiteren Kandidaten der Kajal- und Seitenscheitel-Fraktion, der mit viel dsterer Melodie und Dramatik zu Werke geht. ON THE LAST DAYS pr„sentieren uns auf ihrem Debutalbum 11 rockig, flotte Post-Hardcore Songs mit pr„gnantem, theatralischem Gesang und mehrstimmigen Hintergrundch”ren, vielen poppigen Passagen und einigen derben Screamoausbrchen. Auch die Gitarrenarbeit ist sehr ausgefeilt und reicht von satten Riffs bis zu frickeligen Leads. sogar vor Breakdowns wird hier nicht Halt gemacht, so dass der Vergleich mit FROM FIRST TO LAST und AIDEN durchaus berechtigt ist. Vor allem an letzteren orientieren sich O.T.L.D. ganz sch”n. packen noch eine dunkle und leicht depressive Grundstimmung in die Texte und werden somit, neben Fans beider genannten Bands, auch bei Anh„ngern von AFI und MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE viel Anerkennung finden. Kommt mit sch”nem Artwork und im Pappschuber!

POST-ROCK/INSTRUMENTAL. Long Island, NY seems to be growing into music's newest focus and continuing to gain worldwide recognition for their unique and dedicated scene. This is ON THE MIGHT OF PRINCES' 3rd full-length release entitled "Sirens", truly a masterpiece collection of epics, atmospheric instrumentals and of course, straight up rock. "Sirens" was recorded at famed New Alliance Studio in Boston, MA (Cave In, ISIS). Since their inception in 1998, ON THE MIGHT OF PRINCES has been creating their own dynamic sound, fusing melody and technical madness, all intertwined through dramatic guitar progressions, fast leads, a tight rhythm section and their notably introspective lyrics.
