Release Discriptions:

CAREER SUICIDE - Invisible Eyes LP
Brand new LP from one of the best bands going in North America at the moment... great snotty hardcore punk, fast and furious. Great. (Feral Ward #29)

INEPSY - City Weapons LP/CD
New release from Montreal, Canada's crust fucks Inepsy. Playing exactly what you would want and expect; more of the same insane Motorhead meets D-beat rock and roll. (Feral Ward #27)

SELFISH - Cause Pain CD
New release from Finland's finest. More traditional Japanese hardcore rocking influenced punk. Maybe even better than their last LP. Great. (Feral Ward #8)

DISFEAR - A Brutal Sight of War 10"
Finally a vinyl version of the long lost CD only release by Disfear. Brilliant D-Beat Swedish hardcore massacre. Limited to 1,000 copies. (Feral Ward #23)

WOLFPACK - Bloodstained Dreams 7"
One time vinyl version of this long lost Wolfpack masterpiece, never before on vinyl... unearthed for the masses, or at least for the few punks lucky (or fast) enough to get their hands on this one. Limted to 500 copies. (Feral Ward #22)

CALL THE POLICE - 1984 In 2003 LP/CD
Here we have a post-humous realease by this Portland, OR punk band. Female fronted hardcore punk with a lot of cool melodies, similar to Burning Kitchen, mixed with some more UK sounding punk influences like Varukers, or Vice Squad. Yet another band with members of Tragedy... and also some ex-members of Run For Your Fucking Life. Great. (Feral Ward #18)

WARCRY - Maniacs On Pedestals CD/LP
CD version now available. Portland's Warcry are back with 15 tracks of Discharge influenced d-beat hardcore played Swedish style. Warcry features members of Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Hellschock, Remains of The Day, and Bacteria so you know the quality is top notch. CD version will be out some time soon. (Feral Ward #21)

URANUS - To This Bearer Of Truth CD
This band, in many ways, changed the path and the pattern of modern hardcore globally. How to describe this? Chaos, fury, emotional strife, and a paranoid fear of a technocratic future all blended with a musical delivery that is equivalent to total sonic insanity. This gives many people a chance to save some money and have all of their output on a CD and makes for the return of a great Canadian band long since dead. The packaging is as good as you can possibly get! Copied stylistically almost as much as His Hero Is Gone! Can you say eleven of the most influential songs ever? Better get them now so you don't kick yourself twice. Includes the Disaster By Design 2x 7", the split with His Hero Is Gone (demo), Immoral Squad split 7", and a Negative Approach cover. (Great American Steak Religion #20)

WOLFPACK - A New Dawn Fades LP
I've been waiting for years to hold this disc in my hands. Finally available on the proper punk format. Vinyl. Sounds as good as Swedish hardcore can sound. Raging Swedish d-beat from one of the pioneers of the genre. This album is from 1996 before they changed their name to Wolf Brigade and features Jonsson from Anti-Cimex, Shit Lickers, etc. on vocals... under the pummeling d-beat lies a great metal melody... if you don't have this already... you will love this. And you will love Yannick for rescuing this one from CD only hell. (Feral Ward #6)

WOLFBRIGADE - In Darkness You Feel No Regrets LP/CD
Finally available on LP and CD. Ten new Wolfbrigade tracks recorded in 2003 along with a cover of Poison Idea's "Say Goodbye." Wolfbrigade hail from Sweden, of course. The LP comes with a poster. (Feral Ward #7)

INEPSY - Rock'n'Roll Babylon LP/CD
Both the LP and the CD are available now! Inepsy hail from Quebec City, Canada and they play D-beat hardcore that is heavily infulenced by Motorhead and Discharge. These ten tracks are catchy and punk. Rock'n'Roll Babylon will definitely appeal to those that like this classic Motorhead hardcore sound! (Feral Ward #12)

BORN DEAD ICONS - Ruins LP/CD
Now available on LP and CD. Like an unstoppable juggernaut Born Dead Icons thunder forward with more dark and heavy war chants. Ruins is a hard assault of Motorhead meets Amebix inspired hardcore that will certainly keep the die hard Born Dead Icons troops plundering and pillaging late into the night. Eleven tracks. (Feral Ward #2)

TRAGEDY - Vengeance LP or CD
Finally out on both LP and CD!!! Tragedy's first LP was an awesome record filled with powerful and melodic hardcore served with a dark underbelly of brooding atmosphere. Vengence is equally as powerful, melodic, and brooding. Twelve new songs to infect the world with their ideology and musical vision. Tragedy is doing a US tour right now, and will soon be touring Europe. (Tragedy Records #3)

MEANWHILE - The Show Must Go On 7"
Four new tracks from this awesome Swedish hardcore band. Explosive and catchy these songs will certainly please fans of the Swedish genera of Discharge influenced hardcore. The US version of this record is on Feral Ward/G.A.S.R. and the Swedish version is on Communichaos Media. Really damn good. (Feral Ward/G.A.S.R. #18)

INEPSY - See You In Hell 7"
Four tracks of D-beat hardcore recorded way back in 1983. These songs are quick, melodic and catchy with a definite Motorhead influence. (Feral Ward #1/Great American Steak Religion)

SELFISH - Burning Sensation LP
Hailing from Finland, Selfish offer up ten tracks of ragging hardcore. The sound is classic melodic and thrashy hardcore with raspy vocals and desperate, angry lyrics about life and death. Quite good. CD version coming out on HG:Fact in Japan. (Witch Hunt #9)

TRAGEDY - Can We Call This Life? 7" (sold out)
Three more amazing songs from Tragedy. Dark, brooding, melodic and powerful hardcore from these long time veterans. A fucking great record. (Tragedy Records #2)

BORN DEAD ICONS - Modern Plague 7"
Born Dead Icons are cruising town with a dark and heavy sounding rumble that is influenced by both Motorhead and Amebix. Four tracks of harsh sounding hardcore that is powerful and depressing sounding. (G.A.S.R/Witch Hunt #8)

FROM ASHES RISE - Silence LP
The vinyl version of their new LP is finally available. The record sounds amazing and once again those that understand the sheer power and awe of From Ashes Rise will be eagerly devouring these songs. The sound is powerful and harsh, but with a very good sense of hidden melody and catchy riffs. The vocals are strained and desperate, with the overall feel being dark and depressing. These eleven tracks are also available on their CD. (G.A.S.R./Witch Hunt #6)

TRAGEDY - LP/CD
The CD version the Tragedy LP is now available as well as the repress of the LP. From the ashes of His Hero Is Gone and Deathreat comes Tragedy. This debut LP is as good, if not better, than anything that His Hero Is Gone or Deathreat ever released. The songs are exactly what you would expect, with the addition of some fantastic melodic elements. One of the best records I have heard this year, these ten songs are destined to be classics; "The Intolerable Weight" has an extremely catchy chorus, while "The Point of No Return" has a classic ending. A truly great record. Really awesome. (Tragedy Records)

HIS HERO IS GONE - The Plot Sickens CD
The last few His Hero Is Gone releases finally make it on to CD. Tracks 1 to 11 are from The Plot Sickens LP, tracks 12 to 17 are from the Fool's Gold 7", tracks 18 to 21 are previously unavailable, and the final thirteen tracks capture an amazingly high quality His Hero Is Gone live show from the Shelter Club in Tokyo, Japan. All the brutality, catchy fury, and power driven thunder of His Hero Is Gone captured on one final release from this amazing band. One of the better hardcore bands in the last few years. They consistently put out high quality, interesting, and intelligent releases with a dismal and depressing edge that clearly enshrouded their existence. Excellent. (Great American Steak Religion #15)

FROM ASHES RISE - CD
This untitled CD From Ashes Rise includes all of their tracks from the Concrete And Steel LP, their 2nd 7", a Discharge cover track, as well as eleven tracks from their upcoming Silence LP. From Ashes Rise are in the same vein as His Hero Is Gone and Tragedy, and anyone who likes those bands will be blown away by the awesome assault of these smoldering hardcore songs. The sound is powerful and harsh, but with a very good sense of hidden melody and catchy riffs. The vocals are strained and desperate, with the overall feel being dark and depressing. Fantastic. (Great American Steak Religion #17)

FROM ASHES RISE - Concrete and Steel LP
Thirteen awesome tracks from this extremely underated hardcore band. The music is very reminiscent of His Hero Is Gone, but with higher pitched singing. All the songs are fantastic, and this LP will definitely get From Ashes Rise the credit they deserve. Totally fantastic hardcore from the bowls of the South. An excellent record that will make their two out of print 7"s a must find. Honestly, this is a great record. (Great American Steak Religion #16)

HACKSAW - Kick It 7"
Re-mastered and re-pressed the long lost Hacksaw 7" is finally available. The sound is 100% pure Swiz influenced hardcore. In fact it would be an easy prank to convince your friends that these songs were some unreleased Swiz tracks. Hacksaw was an excellent band even if the Swiz influence was pretty extreme. (Great American Steak Religion #12)

HIS HERO IS GONE - The Plot Sickens: Enslavement Redefined LP (sold out)
Another amazing LP from His Hero Is Gone. This time around all eleven songs are focused on technology and the failure of progress to improve our lives. The Plot Sickens is packaged in a beautiful gatefold LP jacket and comes complete with lyrics and text. Brutal and uncompromising, His Hero Is Gone once again prove why they are one the best hardcore bands around today. They are currently on a two month US tour. (Great American Steak Religion)
