CRUST-HARDCORE. Originally released in 1995 via Distortion Records, now re-released! Forming around 1989, DISFEAR took elements from both crust and death-metal scenes to effectively reinvent the Swedish sound. DISFEAR simply took the things that made the Swedish metal scene so effective such as ferocious/anxious vocals and pummeling drums and put them into the arena of d-beat punk. The result added new dimensions to the genre's sound. The band's debut LP "soul scars" spells out themes of psychological trauma and irrevocably broken lives from war replaced the politically charged battle cries that DISCHARGE once made.

POST-ROCK/INSTRUMENTAL. Comprised of members of ISIS and ANGEL HAIR, RED SPAROWS' sweeping guitar orchestrations thrive unbound by narrative, reliant on the merits and strength of their power alone. "the fear is excruciating, but therein lies the answer" serves as a conduit where limitless amounts of imagery can reside within the grandiose scope of the quintet's lush symphonic vignettes. Earlier records focused on the larger scope of the album, but this album is song-centered, with the individual tracks harboring stronger independent identities. The 10th anniversary re-issue contains a poster.

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.
