HARDCORE-PUNK. It's been nearly 5 years since RULETA RUSA released "aqui no es", their debut LP for Sorry State, but if you think they've slowed, mellowed, or otherwise slipped off their game you are sorely mistaken. If anything, they're harder, faster, and punker on "viviendo una maldicion" than they were on "aqui no es". Get a similar mixture of classic Spanish punk, US hardcore, and 2nd-wave UK punk that you heard on the band's previous releases, but everything feels a little more direct and a little rougher around the edges. RULETA RUSA have gotten better...the tougher parts are tougher, the catchy parts are catchier, and they've delivered what is (to date, at least) the crowning achievement of their discography.

THRASH-METAL. After helping to pave the way for the old-school metal revival, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER does more than just rehash thrash on "living for death, destroying the rest" rather, the band's sophomore release transcends mere nostalgia as it ushers speed-metal, kicking and screaming, into the new millennium at last. What separates the Philly foursome from the rest is not the precise riffing, raging solos, or the pummeling percussion; rather, it's the attitude, one as contagious as the songs themselves. On their 2nd full-length they continue along those lines, bringing blistering thrash comparable to MUNICIPAL WASTE, EXODUS and TOXIC HOLOCAUST.

POST-PUNK. Shortly after the demise of THE BREAKS and FORMALDEHYDE JUNKIES, Joseph (vocalist for the former) and Colin (drummer for the latter) got together to work on a project inspired by the late '70s garage and post-punk bands that drenched themselves in darkness and depression (think an amalgamation of bands like CRIME, DEAD BOYS, THE GUN CLUB and THE BIRTHDAY PARTY. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card and is limited to 300 copies.

7"col 6.50€*


HARDCORE. RUN FOR YOUR FUCKING LIFE is a triumph of raw hardcore energy that is very much influenced by '80s hardcore, in particular ECONOCHRIST or POISON IDEA. All songs are angry and harsh and ready to explode. CD compiles the LP, 7", and 2 extra bonus tracks from this California band.

LP 7.50€* CD 5.00€*


INDIE-ROCK. "big vacation" is a hazy, jangly, summertime jam that showcases vocalist/guitarist Anthony Heubel's impressively diverse evolution as a songwriter. Its memorable hooks and melodies grab hold of listeners with each telling note, while the bittersweet lyrics are fed by Heubel's newfound discontent for complacency and exploitation. For fans of TIGERS JAW and TITLE FIGHT. Colored vinyl includes digital download.

7"col 7.00€*


HARDCORE-PUNK. "break mirrors" contain 5 Tracks of youthful and energetic hardcore-punk out of Cleveland. Mosh friendly but spastic, shouted vocals and a pissed off vibe. With songs like "i don't hate religion, i just hate you" you know what you're in for.

7" 4.00€*


HARDCORE. On their debut, RUN WITH THE HUNTED has architected songs founded around the heaviness and technicality of bands like INDECISION and TURMOIL intermixed with the strong, noisy flourishes akin to BOTCH and CATHARSIS. The end result as shown on their self-titled album is anything but the typical aping of either niched genre - it's a powerful combination of both, without the shortcomings of either and a unique style all its own. Colored vinyl version includes a MP3 download code.

LPcol 16.00€* CD 13.00€*


HARDCORE. A name derived from classic dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, "the sieve and the sand" is a noise-strewn, wholly-intelligent, 7-track monster offering fit for THE SECRET and BURNING LOVE enthusiasts. As sonically devastating as it is mentally thought-provoking, "the sieve and the sand" encompasses a lifetime of trauma, struggle and a desperate search for meaning and purpose in an otherwise careless world. For fans of CONVERGE, BOTCH and TRAGEDY. Colored vinyl is limited to 384 copies and includes a digital download card.

POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Between 2003-2007, RUNNING FOR COVER was the best kept secret in the Eastern time zone. Dialing in the density and frustration of bands like NO COMMENT and CAPITALIST CASUALTIES, and playing regional shows alongside bands like Iron Lung and Mind Eraser, they never failed to level the audience and the venue. Their 7" and full-length album are known by some to be high water marks of their chosen style, but their demo has remained unheard by all but the most devoted. Remixed in 2013 by the band and properly mastered for the 1st time, Painkiller presents their full, 2003 demo on a 12". For those not familiar, welcome to the cult. Members of RUNNING FOR COVER have also done time in GAS CHAMBER, SOLUTIONS, RESIST CONTROL, SLAVE STATE, DEAD LANGUAGE and others. Limited edition of 500 copies.

LP 14.50€*


PUNK-ROCK. Six songs to go with your six-pack of Steel Reserve. Dumb fun for aspiring nihilists abused with an electric bargain basement pogo beat and rudimental fuzz-riffery (ala THE SPITS, GG ALLIN, or METAL URBAIN) that push along such universal themes as "My job sucks", even gets apocalyptic on the way to the bathroom to puke. Limited to 500 copies.

INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. With their latest album "blood year," RUSSIAN CIRCLES forsake the sonic crossroads of divergent musical paths found on albums like "guidance" and "memorial" to offer up the most direct and forceful collection of songs in their discography. In an age where rock records are often built on a computerized grid, RUSSIAN CIRCLES chose to track the foundations of the songs together in one room as complete takes without click tracks. While it retains the dexterity, multi-faceted techniques, and dramatic compositions that have been a trademark of RUSSIAN CIRCLES since day one, "blood year" fully embraces the most powerful aspects of the band's repertoire. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

LP 24.00€*


INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. Chicago trio RUSSIAN CIRCLES return with not only their 4th and heaviest album to date - but also with "empros" they're poised to take the crown as innovators reinvigorating the staid trappings of genre. "empros" picks up where the anthemic riffs and melodies of "geneva" left off and injects evermore slithering rhythms amid skull-crushing heft with all the visceral intensity of GODFLESH, SWANS and NEUROSIS. Put simply, "empros" is RUSSIAN CIRCLES' master of reality: a radical revision of both heavy and melody that is monolithic in its clarity and perfection. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

LP 23.00€*


INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. "enter", the debut release from Chicago's RUSSIAN CIRCLES is 6 songs clocking in at 44 min. and is purely instrumental. These songs travel from extreme to extreme, touching on technical melodic metal with brilliant, heavy riffs, while also exploring a softer, more mellow side of the band, yet still mixing things together very cohesively. Vinyl comes with a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

LP 24.50€*


INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK. With their 6th album "guidance", RUSSIAN CIRCLES carry on in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional dramatic instrumental narratives and to scout out new textures from their respective instruments. Songs aren't constructed out of highbrow concepts; they're forged out of gut instinct and base emotional response. They continue to examine the polarity of quiet and loud, complexity and simplicity, ugliness and beauty. Every RUSSIAN CIRCLES album has had its share of new sonic vistas, and "guidance" finds the band still searching out new sounds. RUSSIAN CIRCLES were able to capture this broad tonal palette and wide array of emotional motifs into a cohesive journey through the tumultuous corners of human existence. Vinyl is housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.
