Release Discriptions:

CUT THROAT - LP
Debut 6 song 12" from Cut-Throat; fast and raw Portland hardcore Scandi-style punk here with a bit of MotorSchool thrown in ... members/ex members of Detestation, Harum-Scarum, Dog Soldier, Hellshock, Blood Spit Nights, Religious War, Atrocious Madness, Defiance. One sided 12" with an etching on the blank side... artwork by Yossie. (Partners In Crime #25)

GUDON - 1984 to 1990 LPx2
Well, its finally out! Double LP of almost all Gudon's material... Sadly their flexi was left off by the band's request. Blazing Japanese hardcore/punk from the mid '80s. One of my favorites, and (in my opinion) one of the most underated Japanese hardcore bands. Members went on to be in lots of more great bands... noteably Judgement and Bastard, etc... Limited to 1000 copies. Full color extra thick gatefold sleeves w/ Sugi artwork throughout. Description by Billy of Partners In Crime. (Partners In Crime #22)

KRUW - The Punx 7" EP
...Ten bucks says you will fall in love with Osaka City punkers Kruw just as we did when we heard their CDR on Bakuretsu Records from Japan. This band has a kind of energy that I can't really even describe. It's energy in a way which you rarely hear anymore. It's not energy from distortion, or over- production, or even from the masterful musicianship... these songs explode. For fans of early '80s fast and sloppy punk and hardcore... Not a comparison here, but I believe fans of early Japanese punk will love this. I know I do... everything from the out of tune guitars, to the wonderful artwork... this is brilliant punk rock. (Partners In Crime #23)

FORWARD - Burn Down The Corrupted Justice LP
Brand new LP by long running Japanese hardcore legends Forward, this time around adding back original guitarist Souichi (Insane Youth) for a return to the older Forward sound.... fucking great Japanese hardcore... (ex-Deathside, Insane Youth... etc). (Partners In Crime #20)

ZONE - Squeezed State LP
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)

ASSAULT - 2nd LP
Finally out on vinyl... Japanese hardcore masters Assault bless us with their first full length, released on CD by H:G Fact (Japan) and previously only available on CD... those of you who witnessed the power of Assault on their tour last year of the US (with From Ashes Rise) will understand the need to have this one in the collection... Partners In Crime is proud to present this in a one time pressing of 1000. So get it while you can... and don't come crying when you miss out on it. (Partners in Crime #19)

SLEEPER CELL - 7"
The East Coast's best kept secret is out... Smoking hardcore from Boston, think old Deathreat mixed with some tasteful Japanese and Swedish influences!! Fuck yeah, this record kicks serious ass... the recording is perfect for the style and the songs are catchy, political and inspired. Great new band, great new record... Do yourself a favor and check 'em out on tour right now!!! (Partners in Crime #21)

AARITILA - ...Ja Kaikki Kuitenkin Paattyy Kuolemaan! LP
One time pressing only! Liscensed from 1000db Records/Sweden Classic Finnish HC punk that sounds like it could have been released in '83... and it almost could have been... most of the members of Aartila have been in bands almost that long!!! Featuring Lazze the vocalist from Riistetyt and members (or ex-members) of Meanwhile, Totalitar, No Security, Valvontakomissio... if you like early Finnish style hardcore punk then this will amaze you. (Partners In Crime #17)

HARUM SCARUM - The Last Light LP or CD
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. The CD version is also available now! (Partners in Crime #16)

WARCRY - Harvest of Death 7"
I have no idea where Warcry are from, and fact I know almost nothing about this release other than the record is on Partners in Crime. The 7" has four songs, and they are pretty damn good. The sound is d-beat hardcore that is certainly a bit influenced by Discharge, but in a good way. A nice 7" from Warcry. (Partners In Crime #15)

D.S.B. - Wait Tremblingly!! 7"
Three more tracks from Japan's D.S.B.!! These songs were recorded in 2002 and 2003 and they are just more examples of raging Japanese hardcore from this great band!! (Partners In Crime #14)

GOUKA - Chaos 7"
The brand new one by these Japanese raw d-beat punk masters... great Scandinavian/ Japanese influenced hardcore punk here, with a singer that sounds really, really pissed off! (Partners In Crime #13)

DEATHREAT - Consider It War LP
Twelve new thrashing and raging hardcore anthems from Deathreat. Recorded in Tokyo, Japan in 2001 Consider It War is a Deathreat epic with no holds barred; exactly what you would expect from a brand new Deathreat record! Deathreat features members of His Hero Is Gone, Tragedy, and Severed Head Of State. (Partners In Crime #8)

D.S.B. - Pure Cultivation 7"
Three tracks of fast, aggressive hardcore from Japan. D.S.B. plays it quick and heavy with a frantic energy that comes through loud and clear. Another great release from Partners In Crime. (Partners in Crime #12)

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)

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)

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)

DEATHREAT - Reason To Live... 7" (sold out)
The repressing of this awesome eight song Deathreat 7" is finally available once again! (Partners In Crime #1)

BORN DEAD ICONS - Salvation On The Knees LP (CD version sold out)
This Canadian band is becoming highly prolific as they release their second full length LP just weeks after releasing a new 7". These ten new tracks continue their sinisterly dark sounding assault of heavy drudging hardcore. The sound is influenced by Motorhead and Amebix, and it is utterly negative and oppressive. (Partners in Crime #7)

FROM ASHES RISE - Life and Death 7"
This seven song 7" was the second release for From Ashes Rise. Life and Death has been out of print for some time now, and Partners In Crime has finally decided to re-issue it. Another great releases from this awesome His Hero Is Gone influenced hardcore outfit. (Partners In Crime Records #2)

NO PARADE - Nightsticks & Justice 7"
Featuring members of From Ashes Rise, No Parade can be counted as another member of the His Hero Is Gone, Tragedy, Deathreat, and From Ashes Rise community. The music is powerful with a catchy sense to it, and the vocals are very much akin to what you would expect from the aforementioned bands. Another great release for Partners In Crime. (Partners In Crime Records #4)

DEATHREAT - The Severing Of The Last Barred Window CD
The Deathreat gatefold LP is now reissued on CD and LP (the new version of the LP is NOT a gatefold). Fast and furious just like all of their past efforts, only this time around you get more than you can handle. The CD includes the LP as well as 18 additional tracks from their various 7"s and compilation contributions for a total song count of thirty-six tracks! Blood and guts hardcore in the tradition of Discharge, His Hero Is Gone, and Sweden. (Partners In Crime Records #3)
