POP-PUNK-ROCK. Who would have thought that a group of southern boys, now living in Portland, Oregon, would uncover the future of doo-wop boogie pop, lassoing the soul of 1950 and the hooks of 1970 and dragging those years through the dregs of punk into 2011? "duds" is the 1st full-length by W.H. WALKER, 10 pop filled anthems featuring a cover of BOBBY DARIN's "dream lover"! Get squeeky clean and buy this record now!

HARDCORE. Final release from San Diego's ferocious hardcore stalwartsWACO FUCK. Distilling the TOTALITÄR and NAPALM DEATH-obsessed ultracore of their earlier output into a more powerful, midpaced assault, "eliminate culture" weaves deftly through Scandinavian-derived thrashings, violent dirges, infectious, RUDIMENTARY PENI-style riffing and the hard-hitting So-Cal traditions of BATTALION OF SAINTS and the like. If you have an ear for forward-thinking, well-played hardcore bound by neither cliche nor pretension, "eliminate culture" is for you. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE. WACO FUCK’s debut full-length "paranoia is total awareness" shows the band moving their malicious grinding power-violence assault in a decidedly more midpaced hardcore direction while retaining the terse urgency of their previous 7"s '80s hardcore such as BATTALION OF SAINTS, MDC and DISCHARGE blends with '90s favorites like FILTH and STATE OF FEAR while hard as nails INFEST riffage and the occasional blast thrown in for good measure gives the album an undeniable momentum. As the title suggests, an obsession with conspiracy theories and contempt for the military industrial complex sets a powerful tone for the album. The CD version features bonus tracks from their 2 out-of-print 7"s.

SXE-HARDCORE. WAIT IN VAIN has emerged in the northwest as one of the most dynamic bands in the hardcore scene today. Fronted by Timm McIntosh, formerly of TRIAL and CHAMPION, WAIT IN VAIN has a voice that has been a part of the uprising, continuation and return of Seattle straight-edge hardcore. Lyrically, the band unleashes an intelligent onslaught of messages covering many social and political issues with an emphasis on self-reliance and a need for action toward an uncaring world.

EMOCORE/INDIE-ROCK. New Jersey's THE WAIT feature 3 members of the now defunct ENDGAME - pushing the sound of their former band to new heights. Compared to a modern day TEXAS IS THE REASON or FARSIDE, THE WAIT's melodic vocals are complemented by guitarist Scott Esbrandt's distinct style of playing that quickly made ENDGAME so popular. The album is reminiscent of the mid-'90s post-punk sound, but done perfectly and without imitation.

GRINDCORE. With "false", Calgary’s WAKE have created one of the most angry, vicious and volatile grindcore albums you'll hear 2013. Seriously - 11 songs of raw, unwavering and filthy hardened, deathened grindcore that come out of nowhere, leave you gasping for breath, and wondering what the hell just happened. This is a chaotic, pulsating, airborne event, not an album…it’s a return to form for extreme music – real danger, real anger and real beats and riffs. "false" is the sound of a prisoner getting shived. Thick 180gr vinyl comes with gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

GRINDCORE. After a 7" and endless shows, Canada's grinding band WAKE release their 1st longplayer, "leeches". WAKE combine a good dose of blastbeats, sludgy midtempo parts, doublebass machinegunfire and sometimes even melodic crusty outbursts into a fresh own style. With the brutal wall of sound, mixed and mastered by Scott Hull - this album is a monster!

HARDCORE/METAL. Bitter Melody Records is proud to bring you the 1st full-length LP from WAKE OF HUMANITY. Formed in 2015, the Seattle metallic hardcore outfit have been building their reputation out on the road and by dropping two 7"s of powerful material, reaching listeners in truly organic way. "fight/resist" brings their most cohesive and heaviest tracks to date with a solidified line-up. Seattle xvx-hardcore as it best. Colored vinyl is limited to 500 copies and includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. Seattle's WAKE OF HUMANITY debuts their 2nd release on Catalyst and they deliver a blistering dose of metallic hardcore with heavy breaks, sludgy fast parts, and piercing screams to set the tone for the thematic assault of "grotesque lie". Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

CRUST-HARDCORE. Heavily percussion driven this band layers a cacophony of influences to create a driving and haunting release. This is what you want to be listening to as you drive on dark country roads. To add to the band’s original sound they have even welcomed the addition of a cello player on this recording. Recorded at the Jam Room down south (Damad, Kylesa etc.) and features cover art from Jeremy Clark (Slug & Lettuce). This is a monumental release!

POST-ROCK/STONER. These 5 dudes from Cologne/Bonn, Germany are a V2 rocket filled with pink-flowers. Sounding like 13 tons of candy falling on your cranium from a mile-high tower crane during a solar eclipse. Think of GODFLESH, JESU and the mighty FLOOR. These songs just keep growing on you, they make you feel the energy these guys deliver. Yes, you’re right – it is damn massive! All copies come with a thick die-cut and screenprinted cardboard-cover, printed innersleeves and includes a digital download card.

LP 14.50€*

 

HARDCORE. WALLS are basically everything a hardcore band should be these days. Aggressive, provoking and unsettling. Their music has been described as brooding and downright scary at times. They are heavy and fast but with plenty of room for slower and creepy parts. The mixture of pissed off lyrics with such fitting music reminds of BORN AGAINST. You know how some bands are described with images of axes, hammers or other equipment to just describe how brutal they are? Well, WALLS are like knives! You don’t see them coming but you can feel they are here. Bleak and harsh - this is rage.

HARDCORE-PUNK. "knock one out" is the 3rd LP by these lovely arseholes. A little less noisy than past efforts, and a little more silly. Three English gentlemen, ex-members of all your favorite UK bands, goof off and have a bit of pervy old guy fun. But despite all the silliness, they manage to write both really catchy mid-tempo snotty punk anthems and really chaotic, harsh short/fast/loud hardcore numbers that capture their noise spirit. Obviously to be filed next to your SWANKYS records, but THE WANKYS have found their own noise-punk niche in the past few years, developing their own unique sound, style, and attitude unlike any other.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Newest 7" by SPHC stalwarts THE WANKYS, one of the world's chief purveyors of noise-punk. Of course they are playing straight-forward noise-punk (nothing but braindrill guitars, bouncing bass, and drill beats to be found here) but they have an extensive enough catalog and a unique enough vision that they no longer qualify as "sounding like X", they just sound like themselves. While the last few releases have been a little cleaner, more mid-tempo, more rocking, these 4 songs harken back to the older WANKYS catalog of short/fast/loud scorchers, high-velocity ragers best suited for pogo, chaos, and slam dancing.

7" 7.00€*

 

HARDCORE-PUNK. THE WANKYS from Kyushu Island, UK surprised all with their already classic "noise punk" 7". Having served their time in countless UK bands (DIRGE, ARCASM, E.N.T. etc.) this trio surely knew what they were trying to do when heading to the studio. "the very best of hero", their 1st full-length, is a masterpece of noise-punk. 14 tracks of trebble ladden madness that will knock you down. The recipe goes like this: an insane amount of guitar saturation, primitive drumming, bass lines driving the song, lyrics about subject as deep as glue sniffing. This LP is a must for fans of GAI, early CONFUSE, DISORDER or LEBENDEN TOTEN. Not available for all that melody punks out there!

LP 15.00€*
