Release Discriptions:

BREATHER RESIST - Only In The Morning 10" picture disc (Limited Edition)

Breather Resist feature Evan Patterson, current member of Black Cross (Equal Vision/Initial Records) and former member of National Acrobat, among their ranks of sonic madmen. A true juggernaut in comparison to their contemporaries, Breather Resist are what all volatile and heavy music wishes it could be: unpredictable, menacing, and utterly unique in both musical dynamic and defining personality. Bringing to mind the over powering intensity of Unsane and Coalesce, all the while maintaining their own unique spin on the genre. Co-released with Jake from Converge's own label, Deathwish, Inc... Limited to 1,000 copies. (King of The Monsters #20)

BREATHER RESIST - Patent Cruciform Casket 10" picture disc (Limited Edition)

Another blast of discordantly heavy hardcore from this Louisville, KY band. Featuring current and former members of National Acrobat and Black Cross (Equal Vision/Initial Records), this record will appeal to fans of Coalesce, Unsane, Deadguy and Unbroken. They will be touring extensively on the East Coast this summer and are hoping to head out west soon. Pressed as a beautiful "casket" shaped picture disc this release is limited to 1000 copies and will not be repressed. (King of the Monsters #19)

DIGITAL LEATHER - CD/LP

Taking cues from late 70's/early 80's synthpunk pioneers as the Screamers, Nervous Gender, and The Units, this Arizona based electronic duo rely on just keyboards, drum machines and vocals to create their lo-fi new wave punk sound. Nine tracks that are sure to appeal to fans of the current rebirth of keyboards in punk. Features members of Rip Off Records' bands The Wongs and The Reatards and have already toured part of the US with Empty Records' The Lost Sounds and plan on doing a west coast and full US tour on their own later this year. Vinyl version limited to 550 copies! (King Of The Monsters #23)

TRI-CITY THUNDERCATS - The Early Recordings CD/LP

With an ex-Wipers bassist, and the drummer from Love As Laughter, the Tri-City Thundercats play something between the Gang of Four, early Wire, Yummy Fur and the Urinals. Living in three different cities (hence the "Tri-City") they continue to collaborate. Just getting off of a Japan tour of last summer, they are working on an LP of all new material to support in the USA and Japan for 2003. This CD collects both their sold out singles as well as some live material recorded in Japan. Vinyl version limited to 550 copies! (King of The Monsters #22)

GEHENNA - Upon The Gravehill LP

King Of The Monsters is proud to present the triumphant return of one of hardcore's most notorious and vicious bands. After releasing records on CrimethInc, Crawlspace and Area 51, this Southern California outfit return with another devastating blast of uncompromising, metallic hardcore that is as ugly as it is sincere. No punches pulled music that is a sonic bombardment that will appeal to fans of Unruh, Catharsis, and Enewetak. Comes with poster insert. (King of the Monsters #17)

UNRUH - Misery Strengthend Faith CD

Eighteen tracks of un-apologetically metal hardcore from Tempe, Arizona's legendary Unruh. The CD includes their LP, their 7", the split 7" with Enewetak, as well as a comp track. Bludgeoning, vicious, brutal, and metal. (King of The Monsters #14)

SOILED DOVES - Hot Siberian Heart 7"

Formerly known as The Vogue (releases on Made In Mexico), this Seattle outfit play stylish, damaged art-punk that the kids go crazy for. No keyboards, but enough sass to kill an elephant. Features members of the Blood Brothers. Full length out early 2001 on GSL. The cover may be offensive to some, and the lyrics are pure gibberish nonsense. (King of The Monsters #16)

ABSINTHE - 10"
Heavy, hard hitting, and intense, Absinthe was a powerful head banging burst of angry hardcore. Featuring members of Bury Me Standing and Groundwork. This 10" has been sold out for some time now, but has finally been repressed. Comes on white vinyl. (King of The Monsters #1)

FAST FORWARD - Sapless LP
WARNING: This LP plays from the inside out! There is nothing wrong with it, but you have to start the needle on the inside groove, and let it play towards the outside. You have been warned. Hailing from Los Angeles, California's Fast Forward offer up a splattering of electronic new-wave and experimental freak down. Previous releases from Fast Forward were on Vermiform Records and Capillary Records. Weird. (King of The Monsters #18)

CREATION IS CRUCIFIXION - Dethrone or Devour 7"
Another long out of print King of The Monsters release is finally repressed. This time around it is the first 7" by Creation is Crucifixion. Four unrelenting tracks of brutal metal hardcore noise. (King of The Monsters #9)

BLACK CAT #13 - Wrist Toward Elbow 7" (sold out)
Long overdue repress of this Canadian bands first single. Their sound has been described as what would happen if you put Huggy Bear and The Locust in a blender and that isn't that far off from the truth. Keyboards and chaos... what more could you ask for? Other releases include a 7" on 31G and a 12" on Radio One. Yellow vinyl. (King of The Monsters #15)

LOCUST/MAN IS THE BASTARD - split 10"
King of The Monsters is back from the grave with a repressing of the long sold out Locust/Man Is The Bastard - split 10". Twelve tracks from Man Is The Bastard, and nine tracks from The Locust. When this originally came out MITB was the main draw, but now a horde of Locust groupies will be sucking this shit up with straws. (King of The Monsters #2)
