ASSAULT - Martyrdom 7"
Three tracks of slightly metallic hardcore from Japan. The sound is relentless and vicious with a catchy underbelly slightly hidden under the destruction; very well suited for Partners In Crime. Assault recently released a CD on HG:Fact Records in Japan. (Partners In Crime #6)

BALANCE OF TERROR/STRAIGHT TO HELL - split 7"
Straight to Hell are from Rhode Island, while Balance of Terror are from New York. Together they create a vicious and great sounding split 7" that will certainly appeal to all those folks that are into the Talk Is Poison, Deathreat, From Ashes Rise, No Parade camp of hardcore. Well done musically, and packaged in a black and white cover of course. (Partners In Crime #11)

HARUM SCARUM - The Last Light LP
Seven more smoking tracks from Portland's Harum Scarum. The sound is slightly different than on their previous releases as Harum Scarum has lost their singer and are now a three piece with the other members taking over the vocals. Still this LP is filled with catchy melodic punk/hardcore songs that certainly will not disappoint all the folks that have enjoyed their previous LPs. (Partners in Crime #16)

NO PARADE - Ceaseless Fire LP
Fifteen tracks of powerful but catchy hardcore from No Parade. The style is similar to From Ashes Rise or Tragedy, and in fact No Parade features members of From Ashes Rise. The music is harsh and hard hitting with screamed vocals, but the melodic underbelly keeps the songs memorable and almost pleasant. Even better than their debut 7". (No Parade #10)

SLEEPER CELL - s/t LP

THE SLOW MOTIONS - Dial Eleven LP
The Slow Motions are from japan. Garagey tuneful fucked up punk rock played by Japanese hardcore veterans. Get these songs stuck in your head and they will not go away. Slowmotions are a longtime running punk band from TOKYO... featuring ex and current members of EVANCE, RAWNECK, SHOCK, HAT TRICKERS, LIBERATE, ACID, STICKS IN THROAT, BLAZE, RUGS CONCLUDE, ORDER, ZIKKEN, RANGE and DIRTY HOSPITAL... etc, etc. This LP features all five of their out of print singles on HG FACT. (Partners In Crime #28)

Japanese hardcore legends Zone are back! We are very honored to be releasing their first full length on vinyl. Existing for well over ten years, Zone has toured and played with all of the great modern Japanese hardcore heavyweights, Deathside, Warhead, Liberate, Forward... etc, etc. For those of you who have heard their first two 7" EPs on H:G Fact, you know what to expect; non-stop japanese hardcore... with great hints of UK '83 (Chaos UK, Disorder, GBH, etc.) style punk thrown in for good measure. This is a one time pressing of 1000!!! (Partners in Crime #18)
