POST-PUNK-ROCK. The 3rd albums usually define a truly amazing band. Want proof? Two words: "london calling". And X’s "under the big black sun" is a record of equal importance and stature. It is a defining moment in American music that can never be equaled. Darker than its predecessors, it still rocks as hard as "los angeles" or "wild gift" - but in a grown-up way. This is one awesome slab! Remastered vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-PUNK-ROCK. Though a small handful of its 13 songs predate "los angeles", X's 2nd album represents a giant leap forward for the band. "wild gift" stands as one of the '80s most fully realized rock 'n' roll LPs. John Doe and Exene Cervenka bring altogether more personal and biting lyrics to the mic, making for riveting performances. Remastered vinyl includes a digital download card.

GRINDCORE. Modern fastcore's blackest cult ascends once more from its knighted abyss to deliver 31 hymns of infernal savagery. "deprogrammed" deliver 27min. grinding music. Vinyl comes with gatefold-jacket and includes a digital download card with 40min. of bonus material.

GRINDCORE/POST-PUNK. XBRAINIAX is a familiar name for those into fast hardcore. The ideas of NO COMMENT taken to their conclusion, a nonstop whirlwind, insane complicated arrangements too fast and too furious for my brain to keep up with. This split is raw 4-track recordings, 3 short/fast/loud numbers and 1 long and slow creeper, to be filed with their upcoming LP as their best record yet. LETTUCE VULTURES join 3 tardcore anthems for fans of intelligent art music. If you’re not already familiar, well ah maybe it’s not for you. Their rendition of "walking on sunshine" is one of the best cover song of the year.

GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. When Brandon Welchez from CROCODILES moved from San Diego to the hyper metropolis of Mexico City, he was practically forced to take that change of scenery and let it manifest into more chaotic, aggressive and ridiculous sounds. The new manifestation is called XENU & THE THETANS, and it's not rock-it scientology here, gang. This is that primal punk-rock madness that pours outta yer pores when you just wanna belt out some GERMS style 'core and get nasty. XATT exhales every syllable in swarthy Spanish, and every last beat in the universal language of rock 'n' roll!

LP 18.50€*

 

POST-PUNK. XEROX from Iowa City plays that kind of post-punk that, while really catchy, has no problem peeling back the pop surface and careening into harsh downer territory. The band walks the wavy line between bands like WIRE and FUGAZI while taking the influence of THE FALL it wears on it's sleeve and propelling into weirdo almost psych deconstructions. Members of bands like SOLID ATTITUDE and NERV if you must know, but this band stands on it's own.

POST-PUNK. With a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent, hardcore days, the instrumental prowess on "collision blonde" sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of JESUS AND MARY CHAIN and THE CURE, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of BAUHAUS' early, gothic post-punk edge. Some thracks are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to CEREMONY, ICEAGE and MEWITHOUTYOU at times. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. "our home is a deathbed" features 11 songs by XERXES. The band took shape in early 2008 in Louisville with a sound that channels the energy and passion of mid-'90s originators YOU AND I and SAETIA, while adding the more upbeat and brutal thrash mentality of contemporaries such as TRASH TALK and AMPERE, making for a sound that runs the gamut of blast-beat aggression and emotional rumination. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. Fusing elements of atmospheric post-rock and melodic-hardcore, Kentucky's emotive XERXES has spent the last years of their existence carving their own path with a true d.i.y. work ethic fueled by ever-evolving creativity. And the result has been nothing short of incredible, resulting in one of rock's most promising new bands. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/DEATH-METAL. The 8 damaging new movements on XIBALBA's "años en infierno" culminate into the band's most brutalizing material to date, with more death-metal energy than ever fueling the album, with their trademarks breakdown savagery fully on display in every track. For the past 13 years, XIBALBA has been dedicated to carving a sound which combines unadulterated aggression booming out of the vocals, an ultra-heavy low-end frequency, colossal death metal riffs, brutal hardcore breakdowns, and a trademark groove now synonymous with the group.

LP 19.50€*

 

HARDCORE/METAL. XIBALBA returns with 3 monstrous new acts of vengeance on "diablo, con amor..adios.", the 7" delivering the gritty, down-tuned, metallic hardcore grooves the band's followers have come to expect from the quartet over the past 7 years. XIBALBA also once again secured artwork from Dan Seagrave (Dismember, Entombed, Suffocation) to visually depict the wrath of these 3 relentless tracks. Colored (blau) vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. "hasta la muerte", Spanish for "to the death", is XIBALBA's new full-length. The previous full-length "madre mia por los dias" stormed the hardcore world with its apocalyptic, down-tuned, slow-motion brutality. The band's ultra-energizing buildups and relentlessly brutal breakdowns instantly drawing comparisons to DISEMEBODIED, BLOODLET, and the heaviest of the late early 2000s hardcore scene as well as kings of low-end, groove-laden death-metal like OBITUARY. "hasta la muerte" once more is a lethal collision of brutal death-metal, vicious hardcore and oppressive sludge. Taking the concept of heavy to a new, crushing level!

CD 15.50€*

 

HARDCORE/METAL. RE-issue of XIBALBA's debut from 2011. This release complies all the tracks from their "madre mia" CD as well as the songs from the "earthquake" compilation, all remasterd with new artwork by Linas Garcys. Crushing, downtuned, '90s-style metalic new-school hardcore loaded with moshparts ala DISEMBODIED meets SEPULTURA. Colored (green) vinyl includes a digital download card.

HARDCORE/METAL. The Los Angeles five-piece, infamous for their deliriously heavy hardcore death-metal, is proving once again that their colossal clout outweighs the sum of their contemporaries. "tierra y libertad" finds XIBALBA in their most threatening form yet, forcibly colliding elite, '90s death-metal with reckless down-tuned doom tones and fist-swinging breakdowns which slam harder than a head-on collision. Across 45min. and 8 tracks of head-turning brutality, XIBALBA clarify their disregard for the recommended dosage of unholy stomp that a listener could possibly take.

LP 18.50€*

 

SXE-HARDCORE. xMOMOx is a vegan-straight-edge hardcore band from Germany with a '90s influence that can't be denied. Heavy, midtempo and dealing with political issues. Great bands like CHOKEHOLD, STRAIN, SNAPCASE or UNDERTOW come to my mind during listening to the songs. Vinyl is limited to 300 copies and includes a digital download card.
