Release Discriptions:

FUNERAL DINER - Difference of Potential CD/LP
This is a great follow up to the Funeral Diner/Staircase split LP. Funeral Diner creates a dramatic and moody hardcore assault that is over flowing with passionate and well crafted songs. Slightly arty, slightly depressing, very emotive, solidly honest, and intense sounding music that never lets go of their passion. Funeral Diner will be on a US tour this summer. Featuring an ex-member of Portraits of Past. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape #4)

RAEIN - Il N'y A Pas De Orchestre CD
Raein features the drummer of the much praised Italian band La Quieta plus a bunch of screamo kids with ants in their pants. After an impressive self-released mini-CD this is their first full length release. As almost every other band on Ape Must Not Kill Ape Raein is heavily influenced by Portraits Of Past, but they must be listening to some Saetia and Spirit of Versailles in between as well. The eight tracks here are brutal, they're emotive, they're ugly, they're beautiful. The vinyl version of this CD will be released by the German label React With Protest. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape #8)

TIDAL - Moment LP
This German band offers up seven awe inspiring tracks packaged sharply with a thick booklet. The sound is extremely catchy, intense and gripping. They draw influences from early '90s emo and update it with a powerful driving force and plenty of creativity. The production is clean, yet gritty. Honestly, this is a really awesome emotive hardcore record. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape #3)

FUNERAL DINER/STAIRCASE - split LP (sold out)
Both of these bands are from Santa Cruz, California and both are influenced by Portraits of Past. Funeral Diner features an ex-member of Portraits of Past and they do a cover of Portraits of Past's "Journeyman." Their music has the same sort of dramatic atmosphere as the Portraits of Past LP. Staircase also play emotionally charged music, but with a more youthful approach. This is a solid split release from these two up and coming hardcore bands. Both bands are currently on tour. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape Records #5)

THE LAST FORTY SECONDS/SUNDOWNER - split 7"
The Last Forty Seconds are back with two songs of melodic and soulful hardcore that can be compared to Portraits of Past. These songs were recorded by Will Killingsworth of Orchid and Clean Plate Records. Sundowner also offers up two songs of melodic and tuneful hardcore. They hail from Switzerland. Both bands have previous releases on Ape Must Not Kill Ape Records. Hand numbered and limited to 1,100 copies on baby blue vinyl. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape #2)

THE LAST FORTY SECONDS - 12"
Chaotic and yet moody and always emotive, The Last Forty Seconds put together a surprisingly good debut 12" that sounds like a cross between Orchid and Portraits of Past. It is well done and definitely worth a check out. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape Records #1)
