HARDCORE. "barred life" is the 6 song cassette debut of this north-western hardcore band that has members of BONE SICKNESS in tow. There's almost an early-'80s Swedish element to the guitar playing, but shoved through the classic US hardcore blender, and then pumped full of the kind of performance-enhancing drugs that get you banned from professional competition.

BLACK-METAL/EXPERIMENTAL. The 8-song, 36-min. debut from DODSLEIE features in its ranks Rob Orr (UNREAL CITY, INTEGRITY), Niklas Holm (BROKEN CROSS, EXTERMINATION TEMPLE), and Brent Bubash exploring precisely the style of black-metal you'll prefer. Neither too raw, nor overly polished. Fast, but not to a fault - countered by just the right amount of crawling, atmospheric dissonance. Relatively tried-and-true, yet expressive - with an experimental edge to boot.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Featuring former and current members of such bands as PORTRAYAL OF GUILT, MOTHMAN, and THIEVES, DRIP-FED 1st got together in 2014, releasing a demo that same year. With a sound that encompasses influences from several corners of the punk and rock spectrum, the band's "sickened kind" (2015) and "under the wave blanket" (2017) releases hit tough in the hardcore lane groups like MODERN LIFE IS WAR like to explore, but there's also an overall hookiness that brings to mind Sub Pop during its glory years. Now their debut ful-length deliver fast hardcore-punk cocktail - THE BRONX meets MODERN LIFE IS WAR and early FUCKED UP. Tape is limited to 100 copies. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

POST-HARDCORE. Remnants from the bloated corpse of the once-beloved PLATES, FACILITY MEN provide the outside world a glimpse into the morose psyche of Buffalo. The thinking man’s soundtrack for a working man’s town. Much like the riff-driven, post-hardcore, alt-rock acts of the early '90s, these 'MEN play fast and loose with a unique style of discordant-yet-melodic asound. This sounds like the missing link in the Queen City’s garage-punk and hardcore scenes of yore. These songs are remixed and re-mastered from the original demos that saw a very limited run, including an additional exclusive track from the band’s inaugural demo session.

HARDCORE. New York hardcore is devolving at an alarming rate... reverting back to the primordial mess of hyper speed riffs, garbage can drums and consequential distortion. Before the word punk became a stigma for weakness and neanderthal metal reigned supreme, there was the sheer power of loud-fast-rules and slamming on the bridge. HOTHEADS do that. It's members of BRAIN SLUG, DEFLECT, KRIMEWATCH, and NYC HEADHUNTERS.

HARDCORE. Precise, ferocious hardcore that loses none of its momentum for the fact that it’s recorded very well. A Milwaukee band made up of people from PROTESTANT and ENABLER, among others, IMPATIENCE is playing a dark, pummeling variant of hardcore, a mix of hate filled East-Coast hardcore into an impassioned Midwestern assault - like a fast and heavy BLACK FLAG mixed with a Japanese version of INTEGRITY. Heavy, fast, no art, just hardcore.

The new wave of british (straight-edge) hardcore.

HARDCORE. INSTANT DEATH is a Seattle band made up of members of someof the Northwest's best current and former hardcore acts such as ODD MAN OUT, THE SCARE, LOWEST PRIORITY, SINGLED OUT and KEEP IT CLEAR. Their demo reflects their energetic live show as well as their love for New York Hardcore bands of the late-'80s to early-'90s. The "fool's vengeance" demo draws strong inspiration from BREAKDOWN, OUTBURST and early SICK OF IT ALL, as well as from their friends and family in Seattle Hardcore.

HARDCORE-PUNK. New band with members of CHUCK DAMAGE, SHORT FUSE and other familiar bands from the Münster area. Musicwise they're in the same vein as newer SHORT FUSE or 86 MENTALITY, BLACK SS or classic NEGATIVE APPROACH and other early Boston bands.

HARDCORE-PUNK. Blazing hardcore-punk from Hannover, by dumbasses for dumbasses. This is 7 track demo by JOY-RIDE is a ripper. Fast tuneful hardcore-punk that deserves no introduction.

HARDCORE. In hindsight, January 2020 was arguably the worst possible time to start up a new band, but that didn't stop Cleveland's LAST GASP from making the best of a bad situation. The veteran musicians have pulled from a wide array of influences to create a sound that's all their own while still feeling grounded in the rich tradition of hardcore in Northeast Ohio. Fairly political, anxiously personal, straightforward hardcore for fans of MENTAL, BRACEWAR, CARRY ON and PANIC.

TAPE 8.00€*

 

HARDCORE. Cleveland's LAST GASP is back with their debut full-length of fast, melodic, and snarly hardcore. Truly steeped in punk, LAST GASP moves at the pace of early AFI with the twists and turns of NYHC, all pushed through the grinder of early 2000s hardcore bands like CARRY ON and RIGHT BRIGADE. With tongue-in-cheek sarcasm and humble honesty, the lyrics of "the storied weight of it all" show a band that writes music without pretention or desire to be the next big thing, but to relate and purely have fun. Limited edition of 100 copies.
