FORWARD - Future Troops LP
540 Records and Todo Destruido are proud to present the latest call to arms from Japanese punk legends Forward, Future Troops, out now on LP! Featuring ten new tracks on a single disc, the release is the band's first LP in six years and only their fourth in a storied twenty-two year career of state-of-the-art, nitro-fueled Japanese hardcore. Established in 1996 from the ashes of the much revered Death Side, vocalist Ishiya and bassist You formed FORWARD, along with members of Insane Youth and more. Building upon the teachings of UK metal-punk legends Discharge, Forward's unique "intelligent savage" approach to hardcore was and is decidedly their own, nodding at the work of Poison Idea, Anti-Cimex and others while forging an ironclad path strictly through word of mouth, DIY gigs and underground channels. Future Troops is a taut and explosive collection of tracks that spin yarns of police brutality, calls for peace, rumors of war, injustice, the effects of the Tokyo Olympics and more in a compact and tense 25 minutes of vitriol. You've never heard anything as furious as "A.C.A.B.," you won't be able to unclench your fist after "Tokyo Orympic," "Hatered Union" or "Piece of Peace," and the world won't soon forget Future Troops. Limited to 500 copies only. (540 Records #59)

ROHT - Ionsamfelagio Og Framtio Pess LP
Ionsamfelagio Og Framtio Pess which roughly translates to "Industry and its Future", is taking the oddity and isolationism of hardcore punk and industrial noise and smashing them even further together than they did on previous releases. This is the sound of a band perfecting its approach to the world. And we can't get enough. At first listen it is what seems to be a simple formula of bass, noise, drums and vocals but as you continue to listen, delicate layers of depression, life, anger, creativity, emergence and deconstruction begin to unfold until you find yourself trapped in a dystopian clamor void of hellish nothingness. Industry and its future indeed. 150gr vinyl housed in a 24 pt reverse board jacket with printed inner sleeve and download card included. (Iron Lung Records #126)

LEXICON - 5 Tracks Demo cassette tape
Nearly inhuman levels of rage and power from Seattle's newest noise punk outfit featuring Madam KJ on (first time ever!) vocal shredding duty. Ferocious styles to say the least. LEXICON stalks like a newly liberated beast and pummels your senses to dust. Proper shit. 100 pro-dubbed cassettes housed in a custom J-card with extra insert. Recorded by Jose Mora. Mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth. Art by Devin McKernan. (Iron Lung Records #131 TP)

SLUMGANG - Fermented LP
SLUMGANG formed in 1992 when being a punk or looking punk was still dangerous. We got spat on and started on,just for the way we looked, punk was still underground back then. Hardcore thrash was the norm but me and Loyd loved the old school sound of SOCIAL DISTORTION, AGENT ORANGE and ADOLESCENTS et al, so we quit the bands we were in and started a new one. We still had our staunch political beliefs but weren't DISCHARGE clones! We wrote melodic songs with social politics, about what we saw in daily life and a few about drinking to remove the day to day detrius of life on the dole. We were just four best friends who happened to play different instruments. In my opinion we were ahead of our time - too punk for the pop kids. and too melodic for the chaos punks - no point having a good haircut if nothing is going on underneath it. Intelligent , well written songs by four mates who got drunk with like minded people. Both SLUMGANG Recordings remastered, including their sole EP on Delerict Records. Members also featured in DEFAULT and CONCRETE SOX amongst many others. (YOFC Records #1)

DIRTY WOMBS - Accursed to Overcome LP
Dirty Wombs came onto my radar when my favorite Athens punk, Bak, sent me their split 12" with Gutter as part of a larger trade in 2013. Their side stuck out to me for being exactly the kind of shit I like: 'Japanese hardcore'-style, with powerhouse riffs, memorable songwriting, epic solos, and tons of attitude. Over the years, I excitedly bought every new release as it came. I continued to watch from the sidelines as Dirty Wombs matured and refined their style, writing more complex and moody arrangements, keeping the Japanese hardcore-style but bringing in underlying Greek sensibilities and thrash metal flourishes. I took note as they hosted cool bands like Crude (Japan) and Backlash (Finland) in their home country. Their records remained among my favorites of recent years. Now, Dirty Wombs is bursting forth with their second LP, 8 of their most riff-heavy songs to date. Japanese hardcore is the obvious starting point, we all love Death Side and Bastard, but Dirty Wombs throws in some pinches of thrash metal and Greek crust to make for a more compelling emotional approach. The kind of shit I like, indeed. (SPHC Records #97)

NO BLUES - Miranda Rights/Exploding Hearts 7"
We all know the best pop songs clock in around 2 minutes, so No Blues returns with a limited 7" single featuring two perfect mid-tempo power-pop anthems that clock in around 2 minutes each. "Miranda Rights" has a heavy percussive mid-tempo providing an ideal backbone to a tasteful melody lead by a flourishing bass. "Exploding Hearts" is so smooth, with an instant sing-along hook, compelling vocal arrangements, hot guitar leads, and a tastefully emotional climax, it actually manages to recall its legendary namesake. For me, this shit is perfect. (SPHC Records #103)

NO HEART - Can't Get Out LP
Fans of The Templars, The Cliches, The Veros and The Janitors, take note - because NO HEART will be your new favourite band! Only formed less than two years ago, the Canadians have been quite busy ever since. Releasing both their debut 45 and a killer split 12" with The Opposition last year, we - REBELLION RECORDS - are about to release the band's first full-length "CAN'T GET OUT" on vinyl in a co-production with LSM VINYL - and it's an absolute scorcher! Clean guitars, heavy bovver beats and bouldering vocals - the ten new tracks on "CAN'T GET OUT" are bound to make fans of the aforementioned bands (and Mike's (previous) efforts with LAST CRUSADE and THANKLESS GRAFT) go mental! Of course it's mandatory to say, but it's also true - this is Mike's best work to date and a must-have for those into the 'Acre-sound'. So trust me, once "CAN'T GET OUT" is locked onto your turntable, you don't even want to let it get out! (Rebellion Records #192)

First up is probably Rebellion's favorite new band from Sweden, SABOTAGE! Well new, this band - featuring (ex-)members of Agent Bulldog, Contemptuous, Vindicate This!, Antipati and more, is going strong for five years now and already has two 7" EP's, a 10" and a 12" under its belt! This split, featuring four all new anthems, will be the fifth consecutive release in the same amount of years and undisputedly their best work to date! Newer, but definitely not lazier is Canada's own NO HEART. Fronted by Mick (Last Crusade and Thankless Graft), the Vic City Skins just keep out crackin' one killer release after another! Now with Mike Longshot in its ranks, NO HEART is a four-piece that sounds stronger than ever before and delivers four new tracks, plus Another Man's Poison cover, to prove it! Killer! (Rebellion Records #202)

MODERN LIFE IS WAR - Tribulation Worksongs Vol. 2 7"
"Tribulation Worksongs" is a series of releases from Modern Life Is War, recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio. Aiming to be as hand-built as possible, the lyrics/credits of each song were typed by vocalist/lyricist Jeff Eaton on his antique typewriter. These were later hand stamped on the front and back covers by artist Jacob Bannon, making each cover totally unique. 7" includes digital download. (Deathwish Records #209)

KING NINE - Death Rattle LP/CD (Color Vinyl)
Four years since the release of their debut full-length, "Scared To Death," New York's own King Nine delivers "Death Rattle." Produced and engineered by Arthur Rizk (Cavalera Conspiracy, Power Trip, Inquisition), this album is 11 metallic hardcore tracks of raw aggression. For fans of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Code Orange, and Deftones. Vinyl version includes digital download. (Closed Casket Records #61)

VEIN - Errorzone CD
This is all that you were programmed to be afraid of. Boston, MA's own Vein has made their name since 2016 with constant touring and intense live shows. "Errorzone" is produced and engineered by Will Putney of Graphic Nature Audio (Body Count, Harm's Way, Knocked Loose) and delivers 11 songs of dark, emotional, and chaotic metallic hardcore. Now available on CD. (Closed Casket Records #59 CD)

NOI!SE - Mass Apathy LP (Die Cut Vinyl)
Punk has never been a stranger to tackling controversial issues. True to their punk roots, Noi!se tackles these issues head on, and more specifically here with the issue of gun violence and school shootings, in a very powerful, non-political way. In response to the recent barrage of public shootings, especially those involving school children, Noi!se, Pirates Press Records, and Rev Distribution will donate all proceeds from this song/record to charity. (Pirates Press Records #211)

SUEDEHEAD - Constant Frantic Motion LP+7" (Color Vinyl LP/Black Vinyl 7")
Suedehead was an undefinable band of punks playing Northern Soul in Southern California in the earlier part of this decade who deserve a discography more than most. Their incredible 7" EPs were designed to one day be compiled into an LP, and here it is in all it's glory, along with a bonus, three-track 7" for your listening pleasure. Simba Records and Pirates Press Records are thrilled to be helping this way-overdue release finally come into the world, the way the band envisaged it many years ago. LP+7" includes digital download and is limited to 400 copies. (Pirates Press Records #210)

THE RATCHETS - Gotta Be Cool 7" (Hologram Vinyl)
Brought back from the '70s, a very seldom used vinyl record hologram perfectly illustrates how in the music business, to get an edge, you "Gotta Be Cool." And that's exactly what this record, and this song, are. The cover of Lou Reed's classic "Rock N' Roll" jamming on the B-side is certainly going to strike a chord with a lot of people, and the rainbow, foil-stamped, '70s-style picture sleeve ain't too shabby either. 7" includes digital download. (Pirates Press Records #212)

DAD BRAINS/RAMOMS - split 7" (Color Vinyl)
If you are a punk parent, this is a must-have this holiday season. Paring these two exciting bands was an absolute no-brainer. This incredible X-Mas present offers up four tracks of awesome. 7" includes digital download. (Pirates Press Records #217)

SHELTER - Quest For Certainty LP (Color Vinyl)
Unavailable for years, "Quest For Certainty" is considered by many to be the best Shelter record ever. Originally released in 1992, it is comprised of tracks from the "No Compromise" and "In Defense Of Reality" EPs with a track from the "Voice Of The Voiceless" compilation, a Black Sabbath cover outtake from those sessions, and two live tracks. The record was recorded by two different line-ups featuring Ray Cappo (Youth Of Today, Better Than A Thousand), Vic Dicara (Inside Out, 108), Porcell (Youth Of Today, Judge, Gorilla Biscuits), Graham land (Better Than A Thousand, Battery), and Sammy Siegler (Youth Of Today, Civ, World Be Free, Judge, Rival Schools). LP includes digital download and is limited to 700 copies. (Revelation Records #66)

POWER TRIP - OPENING FIRE: 2008 to 2014 LP (Color Vinyl)
To kick off their celebration of 10 years as a band, Dark Operative is proud to present "Opening Fire: 2008-2014," a complete collection of Power Trip's earliest non-LP output. The release documents the self-titled 7", "This World" (from "The Extermination Vol: 2" LP compilation on Flatspot Records), "Hammer Of Doubt" (2010 version from "America's Hardcore" LP compilation on Triple-B Records), and the entirety of "The Armageddon Blues Sessions." All tracks have been lovingly remastered by the band's longtime producer Arthur Rizk with the release being rounded out by stunning artwork from Portland illustrator Matt Stikker and photography by Angela Owens. This is the mixed color vinyl version. (Dark Operative Records #11)

SHINERS CLUB - Can't Have Nice Things LP (Color Vinyl)
This veteran quartet of Dan O'Mahony, John Coyle, Colin Buis, and Doug MacKinnon is jagged, is fresh, is coming out of left field. Owing as much to the likes of Black Flag, The Stooges, and even The Murder City Devils as they do to any OC or Boston roots, Shiners Club has forged a sound completely it's own. On their debut LP, "Can't Have Nice Things," one witnesses 12 songs of pure angst, aggression, and want delivered with the velocity of an errant howitzer shell. LP includes digital download. This is the red vinyl version. (Indecision Records #112)

BAYONET - Total Massacre 7" (Color Vinyl)
Bayonet plays fast, pissed-off hardcore which has been likened to bands such as Scholastic Deth, Find Him And Kill Him, Infest, Negative Approach, and Straight Ahead, while also having parts in common with early-2000s hardcore. Their sound probably lies somewhere in the middle of all these comparisons. Former members of Meth Breath. 7" includes digital download. (Indecision Records #114)

GODCOLLIDER - s/t LP (Color Vinyl / Gold)
Fred Ziomek (Darkest Hour/Lower Class Brats) and Todd Cooper (Holy Fever), who have known each other since college, were active participants in the Virginia hardcore scene, but it wasn't until both had relocated to Los Angeles that they reconnected and took the first steps in starting a band together. Bringing in other co-conspirators, Neeraj Kane (The Hope Conspiracy/The Suicide File) and Sam Stothers (Narrows, R.O.C.), presented a perfect opportunity for old friends and new alike to collaborate on something fun but also reflective of the times we are living in. A driving, heavy debut that is just the beginning. LP includes digital download. This is the gold vinyl version. (Indecision Records #111)

THE DIVIDING LINE - Turn My Back On The World 7" (Color Vinyl)
Forming in 2017, The Dividing Line plays fast, unashamed straight-edge hardcore blending the raw aggression of '80s-era hardcore punk and moral defiance of early-'00s straight edge. Featuring members from a consistent line of punk and hardcore bands (most recently Outlast, On Patrol, My Turn To Win, Fixation, and New Heart), the band delivers a blow of jaded rage and unrelenting passion with each new track. For fans of Floorpunch, Trail Of Lies, and Ten Yard Fight. This is the clear vinyl version, limited to 300 copies. (New Age Records #75)

DRUG CONTROL - Clear Sight 7" (Color Vinyl)
"Clear Sight" shows the natural progression of Drug Control continuing to build steam as they head into 2019 with nothing in their way. For fans of Youth Of Today, Bane, and Ecostrike. This is the red vinyl version, limited to 300 copies. (New Age Records #76)

Descriptions for 12/1/18

SPAZZ - La Revancha LP (reissue on green and black splattered vinyl)
Next up in the series of legitimate SPAZZ releases is their "La Revancha" LP originally released on Sound Pollution in 1995. This LP marked a new point in SPAZZ's output - they had found their signature sound and tried to push this to its extreme. 20+ minutes of crazed Bay Area power violence with a CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER cover to boot. (625 Productions #228)

SPAZZ - Crush Kill Destroy LP (reissue on green and black splattered vinyl)
The first in a series of vinyl represses of the long-sold out SPAZZ LPs. Here we got "Crush Kill Destroy," SPAZZ's swan-song recorded back in 1998 and released by Slap A Ham Records. Mastered from the original recording, this LP comes with a full color cover and poster insert. (625 Productions #229)

EKE BUBA - s/t 7"
It's a goer. Snarling speed fed hardcore from Zagreb, Croatia tapped into Gang Greens early raw energy - on and off recording (sniff sniff). An exercise in timeless pure punk to smash and to sneer and to hate and to die to. Cherish alongside your School Jerks and Culo eps. LR certified gasm. (Lumpy Records #94)

CLOSET CHRIST - You're In My World Now 7"
Dirty Feral HC from DC informed by chaotic 80s HC greats like Void, Neos, and Sodom's ADK omnibus tracks (!!!!!!!) . An amazing six songs in Five minutes, all played by one chapped millennial (who went on to do the Hologram ep on LVEUM if you're a members of type of wank). Definitely barking up the same tree as Nosferatu - young men trapped in the 21st century playing crazy hardcore that could as well be from the 80s. (Lumpy Records #95)

Q - second s/t 7"
St Louis, Missouri's crown jewel of HC - Q - finally squeezes out a follow up record. Since their 2015 ep they have all finished high school but their appetite for destruction still has not been satiated. Crushing hardcore alternating between the DBeat and the breakdown with plenty of that modern day half note riffing (a la Glue, Gag, etc). What will they break next ??? (Lumpy Records #96)

RUNEMAGICK - Evoked from Abysmal Sleep LP
Swedish Death doom legends return with first studio album in 10 years. Still true to their unique sound, this is unmistakably classic RUNEMAGICK. 8 new tracks ebb and flow over 45 minutes. This vinyl version is exclusive for North America, alternate layout, 250 copies on black vinyl. Single pocket jacket with double sided insert. Liscensed from AFTERMATH MUSIC (Norway). (Parasitic Records #118)

CEREBRAL ROT - Cessation of Life 7"
Four tracks of putrid death metal from Seattle's CEREBRAL ROT. The sound of a corpse ripe with maggots, oozing foul juices from every steaming wet orifice. Demilich, Adramelech and Moondark putrifiying in a mass grave. 500 copies. Single pocket sleeve with double sided insert. (Parasitic Records #119)

Split forged in the rotten bowels of hades, one new and exclusive track from each horde before their new full lengths come out in early 2019. CAULDRON BLACK RAM 'The Maul of the Old World' SEMPITERNAL DUSK 'Stygian Reflections in Ruin'. Killer cover art provided by the unholy Dan Desecrator. 300 copies only, black vinyl. (Parasitic Records #115)

MASSGRAVE - Our Due Descent CD
"Our Due Descent" is Massgrave's fourth full-length CD and sixteenth release to date with no signs of letting up!. A dozen epic new bulldozing blasts of unadulterated grinding crust in the vein of Extreme Noise Terror & Disrupt! These cannabis breathing crust punks are at the top of their game, playing a ferocious style of 90's crust, fused with old school grindcore, fronted by a cacophony of punishing dual vocals! An unrelenting front to back masterpiece sure to put you in the mood for a riot! (Haunted Hotel Records #107 CD)

SERQET - Oleander 7"
After a fantastic demo released earlier in the year that was pressed multiple times. Serqet comes back with a much more dynamic sound, which roots out of the Peace Punk/Darkwave scene. Featuring members from: Lost Tribe, Asylum, Hot Dolphin. (Vinyl Conflict Records #18)

LIPID - Freak Beat tape cassette
Richmond punks with their debut demo! Members of: Kommunion, No Tomorrow, Sensual World, Holder Scar, Sow. (Vinyl Conflict Records #20 TP)

SINISTER PURPOSE - Aces Low tape cassette
Back with their 2nd tape on the VC label, Aces Low shows a progression into their own from previous releases. SP is furious, and if you havn't gotten on board yet, your gonna get run over. FFO: Inepsy, Motorhead, Annihilation Time. (Vinyl Conflict Records #19 TP)

BENDERHEADS - Illusion Dweller tape cassette
Brand New Demo from Richmonds BENDERHEADS. Featuring members from Unholy Thoughts, Eurotics, Cherry Pits and more. Straight D-Beat annihilation, reminiscent of your favorite Scandinavian bands, not just a buzzword for those who don't know how to describe punk. RIP Kyle Trax. (Vinyl Conflict Records #17 TP)

AMMO - Demo tape cassette
Chaotic, fast hardcore from New Jersey and New York. AMMO pulverizes the listener with non-stop blasts of aggressive noise featured on this 6 song tape. Blown out guitars, precise drumming, and vocals straight from a basement of fuckin' frustration, man. A must own for true HC/punk/metal freaks. Features current/former members of Night Birds, Altered Boys, Big Bad Wolf, and Primitive Lips. (Headcount Records #18 TP)

SLANT - Demo tape cassette
From Seoul, South Korea is SLANT. We bring you 6 tracks of furious hardcore featuring members of Bloodkrow Butcher, Scumraid, and more! This demo blew us away, we wen't to order copies and it was sold out, so we are pressing 100 copies in the USA on Headcount Records. (Headcount Records #17 TP)

(repressed) CRUTCHES - Sald LP (green splattered vinyl)
This record was released in August 2017 and sold out so quick we decided to give it a repress! All copies are on green and yellow spatter wax! This is the third 12in from Malmö Norragränges mangel punks. 11 songs of total fury that rage against the worlds tyrants and their crimes against humanity, the religious and hypocritical sexist systems built upon lies and total failures, and the apathy that allows it all to continue. Development and an addition to the band with a second guitarist to help ignite a brutal and raw detonation of Mangel Kang punk! (Profane Existence #169)

Descriptions for 11/24/18

DEATH WORSHIP - Extermination Mass: Demo LP
Currently, Death Worship are in the process of writing and recording the follow up to Extermination Mass; however, Forster has made clear his intentions with the project and quality will never fall victim to expediency. In the meantime, to slake the underground's appetite for new Death Worship material, NWN! is releasing the demo version of the Extermination Mass recording. This alternate recording, made in a home studio setting a few months before entering Fiasco Bros. Studio to commit the final version to tape, was only circulated among close associates of the band. (Nuclear War Now Records #419)

BLASPHEMY - Gods of War LP
The immediate force of the Gods of War album is undeniable. At just over 20 minutes in length, it is as succinct and powerful a statement as any Black Metal. On prominent display are the band's Grindcore influences, with several of the tracks clocking in at under one minute. The album also features re-recordings of four tracks from the Blood Upon the Altar demo, this time with fuller production. Overall, Gods of War features the most aggressive performances and the heaviest sound of Blasphemy's studio output. NWN! has endeavored to repackage the release with a layout that is more in keeping with Blasphemy's previous releases, and more consistent with the band's original vision. (Nuclear War Now Records #399)

Following Blasphemy's temporary dissolution in 1993, the band members went their separate ways and for the most part remained musically silent-with one notable exception. After a year or so of relative inactivity, former Blasphemy vocalist and bassist Necrosleezer partnered with Blasphemy drummer 3 Black Hearts of Damnation and Impurity sometime around 1994 or 1995 to work on a new project called Necrosleezer. The two rehearsed in a barn in the rural area surrounding Vancouver near where 3 Black Hearts was living at the time. Over the next year, the two-piece wrote around 11 songs and entered the legendary Fiasco Bros. Studio in 1995 to record a four-song demo. Upon completion, they dubbed copies of the tape and sent them to labels, but the tape received no serious attention, and the band disintegrated. Very few copies of the demo were released into the scene, and those that exist generally feature degraded audio. Although the demo has long been referred to as Recruit for Conflict, 3 Black Hearts always called the tape Pope Kill, and that alternate name, which is also the name of the opening track on the tape, has been adopted for this first official release. (Nuclear War Now Records #414)

Nuclear War Now! proudly presents "D.A.V.V.N.," the third concoction in a four-part series of alchemy-infused split MLPs, once again featuring Ysengrin's unique strain of Hermetic Dark Metal and this time including a contribution of the consciousness-altering death metal of Stargazer. This series of collaborations began in 2015 with the "Nigrum Nigrius Nigro" split between Ysengrin and Black Grail and continued the following year with "Resvrrezionespiritval," which was jointly conjured by Ysengrin and Sartegos. Each of the four installments represents a different classical element from the alchemist's arsenal - Nigredo (earth), Albedo (water), Citrinitas (air), and Rubedo (fire) - the sum of which comprise the fundamentals from which all physical manifestations are constructed. This particular iteration focuses on the theme of Citrinitas, which also refers to "yellowness," or the emergence of the "solar light" that alchemical tradition posits to be inherent in one's being. As such, the observer will witness several references, both lyrical and visual, to the opposing Sun and Black Sun. (Nuclear War Now Records #420)

U-NIX - Nuke Portland LP
U-NIX follow up their impressive debut 7" on Lumpy with "Nuke Portland", a scathing, psychotic hardcore masterpiece. These eight new tracks fire at full speed, with John Cardwell's (ex-NASA Space Universe) trebly guitar attack leading the mix alongside a pulverizing rhythm section and gravelly maniac vocals. This is total trend-stripping music - a furious hardcore attack that careens forward with precision and speed. An all out ten minute war, cut loud at 45 RPM and full of replay value. Simply put, U-NIX are one of the last pure hardcore bands worth their weight. "Nuke Portland" comes packaged in a full color sleeve designed by the band plus insert and download code. (Feel It Records #21)

100 SWINDLE - For Survival Punx 7"
Fantastic debut EP from this band of 80's and 90's Japanese hardcore scene veterans. 100 Swindle has succeeded where even many modern Japanese bands have fallen short in recent years at reviving the meaningful, and impactful 90's Japanese hardcore style. A sound that has become well revered, loved by many, and if you are a fan as well, you will no doubt enjoy the familiar structure and epic leads of a classic hardcore style that 100 Swindle is making sure is not forgotten in Japan. 330 copies pressed. (General Speech Records #14)

GAIZIN - s/t 7"
SPEED AND NOISE! The rallying cry of this hardcore band from Sapporo Japan who existed from 1985 to 1988. Gaizin brought forth a unique sound which could only have come out of the mid to late 80's Japanese hardcore scene. Influenced by the trademark raw and abrasive sound of the early wave of Japanese hardcore bands like Gai and Confuse, excellent bands from their hometown like Tranquilizer, G-Gas, and Napalm, but also the current wave of UK thrash bands like Heresy and Ripcord who along with so many of their countrymen were both turning up the speed on hardcore. This 7" serves as an excellent document of the band's history compiling the best tracks from their extremely scarce tape releases, as well as unreleased studio tracks. 330 copies pressed on black vinyl with 80's Japanese style fold out EP jacket. (General Speech Records #12)

VANILLA POPPERS - I Like Your Band 7"
Quite simply one of the hardest working bands in contemporary punk and hardcore, Vanilla Poppers are back with their most urgent material to date. Following an excellent 2017 LP on Lumpy, 3/4 of the original lineup relocated from Cleveland to Melbourne, Australia, home of vocalist Christina Pap. The four new tracks on "I Like Your Band" find the Poppers on top of their game, driving home hook-laden punk hits beneath Pap's ruling vocal presence. And what's more? The band's gritty, live charm is captured at its best here by Billy Gardner (Ausmuteants, Antifade Records) and dialed in on the mix by Mike Gill (Perverts Again, Cruelster). A near-perfect EP delivered with the precision and attitude of first wave 70s PUNK and executed with the style and confidence that few contemporary acts possess. "I Like Your Band" comes packaged in a glue pocket sleeve with artwork from William Chapman plus lyric insert and download code. (Feel It Records #25)

WOUND MAN - Omnipotence tape cassette
New Bedford style power violence complete with the stop start blaze and sludgery that makes their brand so brutally enthralling. 24 tracks from different sessions/demos/compilations... original tracks and covers. Foldout cardboard cover like Extortion and Weekend Nachos tape on RSR. (RSR Records #189 TP)

Guitarist and vocalist Lara Hilgemann's voice is a towering inferno that ranges from angelic to destructive. It's unfuckwithable, to say the least. Her guitar work complements her voice like fire and gasoline. Throw Jordan Gomes' fast, melodic and dark bass licks in there and the inimitable Lupe Flores' full horsepower drums and you've got a force to be reckoned with. The highly anticipated new album from this Seattle power trio is their best yet. From straight ahead rockers with massive hooks to bleak ballads; from 50's style slow dances to epic psych-sludge breakdowns, an immaculate rawness pervades Skin. It's cathartic, comforting and addictive in the best possible way. Comes on colored vinyl (500 copies) with w/ full color inner sleeve. (Nadine Records #10)

Noisy hardcore skuzz metal recalling Melvins or early Kylesa with dynamic male/female screaming vocals. Drawing from diverse personal influences, and the three main goals of writing "big dumb riffs", "songs primarily composed of palm mutes", and to "play like our asses are on fire", Hair Puller has that raw, in-your-face magic. Old Friend showcases what they do best: blistering barn-burners, chuggy rockers, and the push and pull of tense dissonant sludge to highlight their distinct and sinister take on the heavy. Comes on colored vinyl (300 copies) with full color inner sleeve. (Nadine Records #8)

BOINK - Something Colorful For Sure LP
Boink is a PDX supergroup comprised of members from celebrated bands such as Máscaras, Bitch'n, Havania Whaal, The Wild Body, Plastic Weather, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical and Sun Angle. It's six members create a cacophony of sound that swirls with polyrhythmic life and excitement. Frontwoman Noelle Magia has a reverbed out vocal delivery that is at times commanding, and at times combining into the aural fabric created by the guitar, bass, & marimba for a pleasantly disorienting effect. Drummer Papi Fimbres is the driving force behind this blend of influences resulting in surging psychedelic Cumbia tinged art rock. Comes on colored vinyl (300 copies). (Nadine Records #11)

Descriptions for 11/17/18

After two EP's (React and Deranged) and a self-released demo, come Spirituals Cramp's debut 12". Combining 'Sandinista'-esq experimentation with modern alternative rock might be something that scares away the leather and spike crowd but that's only if you've been pretending The Clash didn't write some of the best rock n roll songs the world ever knew. A merging of classic UK punk with some modern aesthetics manage to create a sound that is a welcome American take on classic UK Punk. They're even bold enough to exploit the reggae influence that was moving through bands like the aforementioned and Stiff Little Fingers. This new 12" catches you up by repackaging the 7"s with a set of new tracks including a Sex Pistols and Billy Bragg cover. The influences are worn on their sleeve and brings to mind the kind of bands that would have gotten me into punk in the first place. It's accessible but still smart and still aggressive. The vocals sound like they're crooned from a ghost lamenting a wasted life or shouted like Malcolm Owen knew he'd die young. If you were a fan of those Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things LP's you'll find something here to chew on. Likewise, if those Seivehead records were a breath of fresh air for you this might be the band you've been waiting for. (Deranged Records #317)

COLOR T.V. - s/t LP
After concocting a batch of 7" singles that leaked from various Twin Cities basements, here is the debut LP from Color TV. Bringing more speedy punk rock that slaps with tight bursts of melody and quirk with sardonic musings of living in the sci-fi dystopian hellscape that is the now. Heavily influenced by early UK punk and USHC with subtle underpinnings of bands like Sparks and Ultravox, this is punk music clearly made by lifers obsessed with the underground counter-culture. Come, children, time to gather around and drink the electric Kool-Aide of C-TV! (Deranged Records #318)

Crack Cloud is a mixed-media collective based out of Vancouver, BC. Modelled around harm reduction philosophy, Crack Cloud operates as a rehabilitative outlet for a revolving cast of multi-disciplinary artists across Canada. They sound like no other band going at the moment delivering rhythmic art/post punk that could be compared to early Gang of Four and Wire. This 12" compiles both their demos (2016, and Anchoring Point, 2017) on one record. Hands down one of the most interesting bands Canada has to offer at the moment. New album scheduled for 2019. (Deranged Records #315)

EXOTICA - Musique Exotique #03 7"
Exotica returns with Musique Exotíque #03, their third and best release to date. It's business as usual but the intensity has been ramped up and their chaotic nature more out of control. It's still pogo friendly, destructive to the ears and totally explosive, with special care on song writting. This is a band who have worn out their copy of the Xcentric Noise tape Raw War (The World Of Punk) from 1983 as it takes bits from UK82 - especially Perdition era Disorder, classic 80's Brazilian Punk and Finnish hardcore, creating a kaleidoscope of the greatest punk era, keeping the attitude of what made international Hardcore Punk once so exciting but looking ahead instead of been another carbon copy punk band. The sleeve artwork continues the tradition of Tipito, encountering endless situations and dilemmas while the insert doubles as a lyric sheet and as band statement. (La Vida Es Un Mus #187)

Howling and screaming like an acid trip gone wrong - Melbourne's PRIORS punch to the surface with 9 ultra-bombastic cuts of relentless hardcore! Channeling the raw ferocity of groups like KAAOS and VAURIO with the dark and driving melodies of LAMA - PRIORS inject enough character and attitude to establish this sound as a beast entirely of their own creation. A frightening mix of breakneck melodies and cacophonous destruction! Featuring members from a circle of Australian bands quickly making their mark on the international scene (including SISTEMA EN DECADENCIA, EXECUTION, HELTA SKELTA, and NERVE) this LP was one of the first to be started and last to be finished. Over 3 years in the making from conception to delivery Priors are set to launch their debut 12" through No Patience Records in Australia and La Vida Es Un Mus worldwide. A slab of wax that hits like a wrecking ball - impossible to ignore! (La Vida Es Un Mus #178)

V/A - Raise Your Voice Joyce: Contemporary Shouts From Contemporary Voices LP
Contemporary shouts from contemporary voices charting a small piece of the limitless history of women in revolt. Eight tracks; each one a history; a story; a biography, told through disparate styles, from early anarcho punk and UK82 to DIY snapshots of goth crossover - all bound together to cement an activated and radical disruption vita. Joyce is the revolting woman; a constant of history. Contributions from members of today's UK and European punk scenes (Nekra, Subdued, BB and The Blips, Game, Good Throb, Arms Race, Sauna Youth, Terrible Feelings and more), RYVJ is a command, a demand and a well-spoken message for tomorrow. The record comes housed in a wraparound sleeve and comes with an A3 insert with lyrics, explanations and essays. First press is 500 copies. (Static Shock Records #62)

REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTER - World Of Inconvenience cassette tape
After releasing their demo early 2017, REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTER quietly worked on their song writing craft, no teasers, no promo tapes, just a constant display of force through live performance where they refined until their was no fat left to trim. WORLD OF INCONVENIENCE finds its home in ever shifting time signatures, punishing punk beats and constantly off kilter breaks. This record expands RJC from the one man band demo and adds players from the live band as well a brief guest appearance by Mark Palm (Go It Alone, Supercrush, Black Breath). Drawing from such sources as CROSSED OUT all the way to the THE BEATLES the record never leaves you anticipating what will happen next. Recorded in Western Massachusetts with Will Killingsworth and housed in art by Mark McCoy, WORLD OF INCONVENIENCE makes for a complete package of hardcore brilliance. (To Live A Lie Records #147 TP)

TIRED OF EVERYTHING - Silenced cassette tape
The very first offering of this brand new band featuring To Live A Lie Records kingpin at his first dedicated role on vocals. Additionally the band is filled out with overly competent musical members from Salmonella, Mad Dog, and Zipper. Tired Of Everything have produced six stomping fist pumping hc punk anthems that spin you up and get you pissed at the world. Hardcore punk less for those who like clean haircuts and moshing but more for those who like dirtier punker side of things. It sounds like if youth crew needed to take a bath. Comes with a download code and a lot of anger. (To Live A Lie Records #155 TP)

The world has been waiting 40,000 years for SAVAGE to drag its knuckles out of extinction and walk the earth once again. Reentering modern era society these early humans no longer have to worry so much about hunting and gathering and have decided to locate themselves in Seattle Washington and pick up instruments as a way to express their disconsolate of being the only their subspecies on earth. LOATHING has stepped forward to be ambassadors and represent a new breed from LA playing lightning quick powerviolence with plenty of fast parts and a twinge of hardcore tossed in for good measure. This is a split of epic proportions. P.S. 2/3 of SAVAGE members are CAPITALIST CASUALTIES staff and 1/3 is of CATHETER fame. (To Live A Lie Records #118)

REALIZE - Demolition LP
Kyle from Sex Prisoner's industrial metal project. Full on GODFLESH worship. FFO: MINISTRY, FEAR FACTORY, SKINNY PUPPY. (To Live A Lie Records #140)

FAILURE - s/t 7"
Full on SPAZZ worship power trio hailing from Italy. Ten memorable, concise songs, most clocking in at thirty seconds, and making you fall into a complete misanthropic state. Recorded to sound big, it's like you can feel their anger when you put this on. (To Live A Lie Records #151)

BRUISED EGO - Roman Numeral One LP/tape cassette
Twenty-two tracks of start-stop on a dime fastcore from Baltimore not unlike HELLNATION, XBRAINIAX, or PLUTOCRACY. If you want to be angry, unsettled, and audibly pummeled, this is the album to put on. (To Live A Lie Records #148)

Slovenia mincegrind comes face first with the originators of mince in this furious split. Full on blasty grind, gurgling dirges, and mince mayhem is all included. (To Live A Lie Records #156)

MOOM - Third 7"
Pissed blasting sludgy Israeli punk. Tons of feedback and anger. This is absolutely perfect for a rainy day when nothing is going right. (To Live A Lie Records #154)

BURNOUT - Primal Code cassette tape
Three tracks of absolute pissed blackened powerviolence hardcore. Complete hatred for mankind, life, and the future. Members of GAY KISS and GET DESTROYED. Hot off the footsteps from their first EP, they have killed their once two-piece band into a full four member powerhouse. (To Live A Lie Records #157 TP)

GOD'S AMERICA - The Undeserving tape cassette
Kicking off the next chapter of God's America with a new lineup and fourteen tracks of brutal power violence hardcore. Furious and fast-paced arrangements, crunchy guitars, heavy stick-in-the-mud bass, God's America now takes a turn towards a more conventional power violence style but retain their own sonic personality and aesthetic to ensure the highest caliber of raging. (To Live A Lie Records #149 TP)

SIX BREW BANTHA - Blight tape cassette
SIX BREW BANTHA put one of the best technical but brutal grindcore records I had ever heard in 2012, in 2014 they did it again, and I honestly didn't think it was possible but in 2018 they have topped both of those releases. Good things come in threes, and this third LP is everything I wanted in under eighteen minutes of grind. True story, the band flipped their van in 2012 and lived to continue the tour with minimal scrapes besides a full leg brace and I think that speaks everything of them... there is NO STOPPING them. Canada grindcore is alive and comes in a gruesome cassette. (To Live A Lie Records #145 TP)

WET SPECIMEN - s/t cassette
New York catchy misanthropic fuzzed out garage-pop. Members of ELLEN AND THE DEGENERATES and FFO LUMPY AND THE DUMPERS and BUCK BILOXI AND THE FUCKS. A memorable first release, get this! (To Live A Lie Records #153 TP)

WAR ON WOMEN - Live At Magpie Cage (Acoustic) 7"
War On Women follow up their 2018 full-length, "Capture The Flag," with this acoustic EP recorded live at J Robbins' Magpie Cage Studio (Jawbreaker, Against Me!). "Live At Magpie Cage (Acoustic)" captures War On Women in a raw, stripped-down form while still maintaining the same urgency and intensity of the original versions. For fans of Bikini Kill, Against Me!, Propagandhi, and Fugazi. 7" includes digital download of EP and one additional track. (Bridge Nine Records #257)

BOOZE & GLORY - Chapter Iv LP/CD
"Chapter IV" is Booze & Glory's fourth album (three proper studio albums and a singles collection). These 11 brilliant tunes were originally released in 2017 but are still new to most, as the album was effectively only released in Europe. Switching up the colors on the cover, the aim is to make sure that this re-energized version of "Chapter IV" is stocked in every record store's "punk" section the world over. Vinyl version includes digital download of album and two additional tracks. CD version includes two additional tracks. (Pirates Press Records #223)

(restock) REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTER - World of Inconvenience LP
After releasing their demo early 2017, REGIONAL JUSTICE CENTER quietly worked on their song writing craft, no teasers, no promo tapes, just a constant display of force through live performance where they refined until their was no fat left to trim. WORLD OF INCONVENIENCE finds its home in ever shifting time signatures, punishing punk beats and constantly off kilter breaks.

Descriptions for 11/10/18

CHRONIC SUBMISSION - Empty Heads Poison Darts LP
CHRONIC SUBMISSION were a young band during the golden age of Toronto Hardcore - 1982-84. The band turned heads when they hit their stage with their vicious stop on a dime thrash, CHRONIC SUBMISSION were amongst the youngest of the bands on the scene and quickly became an influential crossover style band. Tim Yo in 1984 reviewed their tape and wrote - "This is a viciously intense and powerful tape --it's a full out and superbly recorded. 16 songs onslaught if thrash at its best". Those words stand many years later. CHRONIC SUBMISSION'S Empty Heads Poison darts is now available on Lp. Limited to 300 copies. (Schizophrenic Records #96)

Murder, sex, drugs, blood, and violence. Warning: Explicit lyrical content.

An audio notebook filled with disturbing and murderous events. A serial killer walking down a dark road listening to a blown out cassette on a dying walkman as he wipes the blood off his hands and into the dirt... In their own words: "Brainbombs Fucking Mess as a testament/funeral. Brainbombs found previous releases to be too naive, this time it's for real." Warning: Explicit lyrical content. Recommended that you listen keeping in mind, this should be viewed lyrically like a serial killer or true crime film/narrative. (Armageddon Label #15)

(Armageddon Label #21)

EXCRUCIATING TERROR is one of basical pillars of USA Grind Core scene. EXCRUCIATING TERROR and their debut LP originally released back at 1996. This is third repress of this Euro version with bonus songs. (Psychocontrol/Insane Society Records #99)

EXCRUCIATING TERROR is one of basical pillars of USA Grind Core scene. Originally released back at 1998. Its finally here. Re-press of this one of Grind Core pillars from USA. Near to 20 years after first press its available now. This is classic EXCRUCIATING TERROR album. Classic Grind Core album with typically ExTx riffs by Jerry Flores, crazy vocals by Victor Garcia and fast perfect drumming of Martin Alvarado. 21 brutal Grind Core songs on full speed. (Psychocontrol #39)

Three guys from every St Louis band I value in the last few years, with a mission statement to create a great USHC record of an ilk whose trend has come and gone since the years of No Way Records but whose vitality and appeal is timeless. The 2017 demo shocked my system with its perfect storm of influences to create 4 songs of Nine Shocks Terror-esque hardcore, and I immediately offered to do a record for them. This 2018 LP sees Iron Bars taking a slightly broader influence, the foundation of Nine Shocks Terror remains intact but the arrangements and wild guitar leads recall RKL and the anxious and reckless aggression bring Deep Wound to mind. Add in a prerequisite slow dirge or two, record it with Amos (Tenement) in his Appleton WI studio, and we've got my favorite USHC record of the past few years. (SPHC Records #88)

GLOBSTERS - Express Everything LP
This record filled us with hope, broke us into pieces, and then reassembled us into new people. The saga of this almost-lost record is a long one for another time. For now, let's feel the joy and the relief that one of the most anticipated American punk records of the 10's (by me, at least) finally sees the light of day. Tucked away in the farther recesses of Appalachia, Globsters has been quietly holding down the spirit of punk in the USA. It's been six years since the last record, and six years can do a lot to a man. Six years can result in ditching all the mid-tempo love songs, all the sing-alongs, all the funny business. Six years can brew a lot of negativity that can come out as an intimately dark hardcore record, lean and mean, as fast as possible, all tracks in the red and every setting max'd out. This LP sees Globsters as he is today: a complex, multifaceted individual that faces the negativity within himself with a smile and the negativity of the outside world with two fingers in the air. Adam says it best himself: "I try to express everything I possibly can when I play. Anger, sadness, sexuality, extreme joy and happiness. I turn it up as loud as I can." An updated mix/master, altered arrangements, and different sequencing than the promo tape that came out in 2014. Cover art by Mr. Lumpy himself and layout by the #1 Globsters fan. (SPHC Records #50)

Hand numbered. Out now on Merciless Records is the God's America/Cancer Clan split EP. The record is limited to 300 copies only! The vinyl comes in milky white with UV-light reflecting!!! All this makes the record a bit more expensive, but the record is worth every penny. God's America play a rabid, whirling blast of cyclonic hardcore that scrabbles together thrash, grind and powerviolence as it destroys everything in its goddamn path. Cancer Clan from Potsdam have been around for several years! The band deliver 2 new ripping brutal metallic grind- and crust-influenced hardcore tracks. Stocks are limited so we expect this one to go pretty quickly!! (Merciless Records #5)

Motorhead crossed with SSD and twice as burly. From the folks behind Vacant State and Blue Monday. 4 tracks of killer hardcore. 300 copies with hand-cut OBI's, stamped labels. First 100 with limited lyric booklet. (Neon Taste Records #7)

NUTRITION - s/t cassette tape
Limited cassette tape by members of Bootlicker. Kamloops, British Columbia's Nutrition started as a side project of Lewis (Bootlicker, Mass Grave) and his boss playing demented yet tight hardcore. It sounds like what you might expect from someone that might have to call in sick after playing a show the night before. Awkward, angry and definitely hungover. Something you might hear come out on Lumpy Records. Brash and noisy with tight songs cartooned by amateurish surf leads and a voice that couldn't be interpreted for all the money in the world. 8 Songs. One time printing. Only 75, hand stamped, gold foil cassettes with J-Card. (Neon Taste Records #8.5 TP)

Long awaited vinyl offering of Bootlicker's debut record. Not our fault - trust me! We picked this up after the initial label folded leaving these records stranded at the plant. Bootlicker play actually crushing hardcore in the vein of Totalitar, Bloodkrow Butcher, modern Oi influenced hardcore. Blown out while remaining tuneful. Monster of a 7". Limited 1st pressing on red of only 300 copies in proper glue-pocket sleeve. (Neon Taste Records #8)

MERCENARIAS - Bau 83 to 87 LP
Archival collection of odds 'n' ends from the cult Brazilian post-punk unit, Mercenárias, recorded between 1983 and 1987. This LP contains 10 unreleased songs taken from demos, rehearsals, and live sets on the A-side; then a nice-sounding live recording from '83, and a demo of alternate versions of songs that appeared on the first two Mercenárias LPs on the B-side. Includes a beautiful, full-color, 12-page, 24cm x 27cm booklet of photos. (Warthog Speak/Nada Nada Discos #53)

CANKRO - s/t 7"
Debut EP from this pummeling and pissed Brazilian hardcore-punk band. Armed with the vocalist of SEM HASTRO and a couple other hard hitting players, the CANKRO power-trio bashes their way through six original mid-paced stompers (and an OLHO SECO cover) that lands somewhere between DISCHARGE, MOTÖRHEAD, DESTINO FINAL, and that crawling mutant-mosh sound that's been at the forefront of 201X hardcore. (Warthog Speak/Nada Nada Discos #55)

This is the first vinyl release by Gainesville's Bitemarks. Made up veterans of other Gainesville bands such as Palatka, Asshole Parade, True North and Strike Force Diablo. Angular, raging, driving and dissonant punk with angry and abrasive female vocals. Bitemarks are reminiscent to bands such as Monorchid, if Monorchid were playing inside of a burning landfill during the second coming, while a woman raised from the refuse on the dented and rusty shell of a white Wirlpool fridge, and she was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood and her eyes were as a flame of fire, and on her head were many crowns; and she had a name written, that no woman knew, but her herself. Her name is called The Word of Holy Goddamn. And the armies which were in heaven followed her upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, cleaner than the fridge she road upon. And out of her mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the idiot hillbillies: and she shall rule them with a rod of iron: and she treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Holy Goddamn. In a noble war against the foul, vile and utterly dumb orange faced demon. A noble war for the glorious independence of Puerto Rico. Single Sided 12" with screen printed B-side on pink vinyl. Cover is also screen printed. 300 pressed. (Belladonna Records #9)

Floodwalker come in with a punishing debut of anger, despise and alienation filled sludgecore. Noisy with almost an industrial feel, their two tracks clock in at a combined 11 minutes. Violent and up-tempo slow. Members did some time in 90's crust bands and it shows. A nice mix of hardcore, crust, metal and sludge. Senior Fellows, who have previously had three LP's and a split 7", come back with three new tracks of hypnotic, gruff sludge from the bowels of the dustbowl. SF can drop an almost drone psychedelia riff on top of a disgusting dirge part and come out like a bad acid trip. They close it out with a noisy ambient synth instrumental to pull you back in from the nightmare. Cover art by Unexpected Specter. For fans of: Neurosis, Brutal Truth, The Atlas Moth, High on Fire. (Night Animal Records #7)

NEW JUNK CITY - Same Places LP
On New Junk City's sophomore full length, "Same Places," the Atlanta-based quartet explore through this idea of trying to stay young at heart while your body grows older and older. Building upon the foundation the band laid on their debut LP (2014's Self-Titled Effort), "Same Places" continues the bands trend of high-energy, high-intensity melodic folk-inspired and pop-influenced style of punk, while also dipping the bands metaphorical toes into some new realms. Often compared to the likes of the Menzingers, early-era Get up Kids and The Gaslight Anthem, New Junk City layers a combination of both brash and noodling guitars over a driving and pounding rhythm section, combined with graveled-but-oddly-melodic vocals with a certain fervor and passion not often captured on record. And while the band's music and sound certainly are one of their biggest selling points, on "Same Places" singer John Vournakis belts out nine heart-on-the-sleeve songs and stories dealing with the fear of loss, fear of being alone, and fear of being stuck, both in a literal and metaphorical sense. From the squealing feedback that opens the record, all the way through its abrupt ending, "Same Places" takes the listener through a journey of growing older, while still trying to remember who you are. (Night Animal Records #8)

Head bashing debut EP from this Texas GRINDCORE two-piece. For a two piece this thing sounds huge. Like Minotaurs picked up instruments and learned to grind. All go-no slow, guttural vocals, precision blasts, thrashin' riffage. Classic grind sound while still sounding new. 10 tracks of one to two minute songs on a 7". Just straight pummel from the second the needle hits the record. For fans of: Noisear, Brutal Truth, Discordance Axis, PLF, Insect Warfare, Haemorrage, Phobia, Pigsty. (Night Animal Records #10)

(restock) MARRON - s/t LP
Hailing from the center and the sprawl of Southern California, MARRON takes its chief inspiration from the area's highly racialized landscape of inequity, tragedy, and beauty. But while SoCal is the home, DC hardcore rings throughout the chords, and these veteran members of bands such as ESPERANZA, MUGRE, and DESCARADOS bring a new kind of fire to their emotive sound. Owing as much influence to bands like SWIZ as to the political writings of ALBERT MEMMI, MARRON brings a new wave of sound and race-critical perspectives to punk and hardcore that will make you want to dance and decolonize! However, you will need none of these references to be moved by the music contained in this record. Includes download in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. (Ape Must Not Kill Ape Records #54)

(restock) WWHIRR - Modern Hypcrisy LP
WWHIRR is like the warning whistle of a steamroller, setting off from the suburbs threatening to flatten the Petronas Towers of Kuala Lumpur. Life in the metropolis of Malaysia is not a pony farm, as in our small, spoiled western world. Malaysia is still a very poor country and yet it offers a punk scene that is bursting with energy. The level of intensity is hardly matched by any Western scene. WWHIRR should not be confused with the U.S. shoegaze band Whirr. There are no sweet woman's voice but frustrated young people who still want to change the world. They call it Klang Valley Power Violence, but it has a charm of its own. Often the speed is restrained and nastier Sludge is offered. The lack of a guitar gives the feel of Man Is The Bastard, but they're also reaching the high speed of No Comment in some parts. Malaysia has one of the most active punk scenes in the world and WWHIRR is a very important part of it. (Merciless Records #4)

Descriptions for 11/3/18

ORCHID - Chaos Is Me LP (yellow/brownish translucent colored vinyl)
Repressed! 750 copies on this translucent yellow/brownish vinyl with streaks of other colors. Hard to believe this masterpiece came out in 1999 (nearly 20 years ago!) Orchid's first full length 12" features eleven songs of their unique blend of emotive chaos and combustible hardcore. Blending it all together to create emo violence. Screaming vocals and harsh sounding music to keep the kids screaming and dancin' whether they are Romulan emo kids or crusty Klingons. (Ebullition #45)

BURMESE - Privileged LP
BURMESE provides peerless entertainment for an aficionado of the extreme. 13 counts of blunt mental traumas exclaimed in a form both vulgar and elegant- entrancingly toying with nauseating (a)symmetry. Two bass guitars battling for dominance in ecstasy. Two drums painstakingly conducting a beat of frenzied violence; be it militaristic vignettes or full-on grinding. Two vocals topping each other in a deathclutch. A high-speed thrashnoise/moribund no-wave triumph; freaks into early NAPALM DEATH/SWANS/WHITEHOUSE - recognize! Recorded and Mixed by Jacob Felix Heule at NEW, IMPROVED RECORDING in Oakland, CA. Mastered by Thomas Dimuzio at GENCH STUDIOS in San Francisco, CA. Artwork by Mike Green. Burmese is Jay K, Mark S, Tissue, Yeda, Matt C, and Mike G. (Fuck Yoga Records #64)

Hot on the heels of the band's 35th Anniversary celebration, and just in time for their UPCOMING JAPANESE TOUR, TKO RECORDS is proud to bring you this all new 7-song EP of brand new recordings by ANTiSEEN! Guitarist Mad Brother Ward explains: "OH CHRIST- ANOTHER covers collection??? YEAH- and this one is for good measure. This is a salute to some of the bands which have inspired or influenced us, from childhood to today. From the famous to the infamous, to the obscure and also-ran... and some which sure as HELL paid their dues without getting them in return. Integrity and ethic aren't just cheap buzzwords when put into practice. These are the last of a dying breed..." Limited pressing of 400 copies on OPAQUE Baby-Blue vinyl! Covers of songs by KNIFEDANCE, WHITE CROSS, DEAD KINGS, SELF-MADE MONSTERS, KNOWLEDGE IS FOR FOOLS, OSMONDS and LOOSE LUGNUTS. (TKO Records #180004)

Sludgey metal/punk duo from Massachusetts that hits heavy, angry, and emotional. The debut full length from Crowfeeder, "No Flowers," brings together the songwriting and melody of Baroness with the riffs and anger of Cobalt across nine tracks. Two dudes, two beards, many more beers, lots of yelling, and songs about dead people (those they have lost and those they wish would pass). The band draws influences from stoner rock, 90's alternative, doom, and hardcore to bring forth their own brand of driving, bluesy metal. The LP is housed in a full color jacket and comes with a 11"x22" insert and digital download code. FFO: Baroness, ASG, The Bronx, The Sword, Cobalt. (Constant Disappointment Records #1)

KNOCK OVER CITY - It's Bad, Dude. CD
Grunge punk power trio from Massachusetts with clear influences from noise rock, hardcore, and 90's alternative. Knock Over City has evolved their sound on "it's bad, dude." to compose catchy, driving songs. Sing alongs and hooks abound, this record could've easily fit within the Touch and Go canon back in the day. The CD is housed in a matte-printed digipak. FFO: Piebald, California X, Seaweed, Hum, Helmet. (Constant Disappointment Records #2 CD)

LOS BUNGALITOS - Nueva Inglaterra LP
Thrashy bi-lingual hardcore punk to stomp your teeth in. This record marks a defining moment in creative maturity for Los Bungalitos, a mainstay for the New England hardcore scene. "Nueva Inglaterra" offers fourteen tracks of biting lyrical commentary on social and political issues of past and present, delivered with guts, aggression, and fury. Los B is at their angriest and most poignant of their fifteen year history. The LP is pressed on transparent red vinyl, housed in a full color jacket, and comes with an insert with lyrics and background of the album's concept, and a digital download code. FFO: Municipal Waste, Suicidal Tendencies, Power Trip, Los Crudos, Propaghandi. Featuring members of Hivesmasher. (Constant Disappointment Records #3)

INTERCOURSE - Everything Is Pornography When You've Got An Imagination LP
Deranged hardcore/noise rock, filled with snot, vitriol, and contempt, from Connecticut. Soaked in sweat, alcohol, and likely some other substances, Intercourse delivers eleven tracks of spastic, noisy hardcore. Dirty, damaged vocals with erratic guitars and drums, songs burst out of step, lead by the rambling vocals of a drunken madman. Alien abductions, furries, and provocative, demented diatribes on modern existence. The LP is housed in a full color jacket and comes with a lyrical insert and digital download code. FFO: Deadguy, Kiss It Goodbye, Daughters, Heavy Heavy Low Low, KEN Mode. (Constant Disappointment Records #4)

At a time when the underground is actually paying attention to Oi (for better or worse), bands are clamoring and competing for harder sounds and new boundaries to push. Enter Ultra Razzia, the Mountie Marauders, the Quebecian Killers. Their 2017 demo tape was a trudge through familiar territory, copping the early Blitz singles in all their blown-out glory. It's an easy path to follow and it's a lot of fun, but it doesn't lead anywhere. Luckily their trek through the catacombs of Oi found them cutting through brush into less traveled terrain. Their first full length finds the band dialing back the distortion and focusing on single string riffs that sound straight out of '82, like the Meteors laying down singles for Riot City Records. There's the melody of the Underdogs, the ferocity of Ultraviolent, and the confrontational politics of the heavier anarcho bands. The drums rarely push faster than mid tempo, but this band provides proof that speed doesn't always equal intensity because, let's face it, you can hear armies marching from a mile away before you realize that stomp still means your untimely doom. 300 copies on colored vinyl. (Foreign Legion Records #13)

CEMETERY LUST - Rotting In Piss CD
For nearly a decade now, CEMETERY LUST have been perfecting their crazed craft, first with a handful of demos, and then two full-lengths for HELLS HEADBANGERS, 2012's Screams of the Violated (which the label widely released in 2015) and 2014's Orgies of Abomination. Across those two albums, these Portland sleaze-bangers put forth a form of thrash yet was fun yet filthy, and feral at every turn, spitting forth lyrical depravity amidst a sonic backdrop of '80s German proto-black, San Francisco speed metal, and even South American proto-death. No big changes on LP#3, Rotting in Piss, nor should there be: this is vile and violent METAL, above all, which pisses on all party-thrash pretenders. If anything, CEMETERY LUST sound even more manic here, with witching solos divebombing right and left across the album's fierce 'n' full 33 minutes. Plus, they've found a production style that possesses a disarming amount of clarity while simultaneously making every dirty nook and cranny sound that much more depraved. If you didn't know any better, you'd mistake Rotting in Piss for some lost deathrash classic from 1989! With a slew of touring lined up for the summer and no limit to the depraved depths to which they'd sink, CEMETERY LUST devilishly invite you to keep Rotting in Piss! (Hells Headbangers #245)

CEMETERY URN - Barbaric Retribution CD
By now, CEMETERY URN should need no introduction. A staple of the Australian extreme metal scene, for over a decade now, the band have been a study in staunch self-reliance, self-booking two highly successful tours across the United States as well as releasing their first two albums on their own Cemetery Recordings. Although HELLS HEADBANGERS would release those first two albums - 2008's Urn of Blood and 2010's The Conquered Are Burned - on vinyl in 2011, CEMETERY URN's spirt is fiercely independent. Not to mention that they've a deep history in that Australian extreme metal scene: founding guitarist and songwriter Andrew Gillon also hails from reactivated Aussie barbarians ABOMINATOR, and previously played in the final lineup of BESTIAL WARLUST; original vocalist Damon Bloodstorm was renowned as the frontman for BESTIAL WARLUST and for ABOMINATOR from 1996-2001; and drummer Matt Crossingham, who's played with such bands as Belligerent Intent, Scars of Sodom, and Draconis Infernum. (Hells Headbangers #248)

A cult name in the metal underground, DIABOLIC FORCE are a power-trio in the classic mold of Venom, Bulldozer, and Mot-rhead. Theirs is a nasty 'n' blasphemous sound that encompasses the totality of ancient metal, be it thrash, speed, or first-wave black, but especially the unholy trinity of early Sodom, Bathory and Hellhammer. DIABOLIC FORCE built a granite-solid name on their underground work during the first decade of the 2000s, with the title of their first EP, Old School Attack, laying bare their aims. But it was the release of their debut album, March to Calvary, in 2009 which ingratiated the band to diehards the world over. Alas, the band have been sadly silent since, but the time has now arisen for Praise of Satan: in every way conceivable, an intensification and solidification of the trademark DIABOLIC FORCE: attack, fouler and fiercer and more memorable than ever. No compromise, no progression, no hope, no sellout: this is the ultimate Praise of Satan! (Hells Headbangers #215 CD)

FAITHXTRACTOR - Proverbial Lambs To The Ultimate Slaughter CD
FAITHXTRACTOR are a dark death metal band from Cincinnati, Ohio. Formed in 2005, the band initially existed as a studio project between brothers Ash and Marquis Thomas. In this form, FAITHXTRACTOR released a number of demos/EPs as well as two full-length albums. In late 2013, a live lineup was finally assembled. After some personnel changes, the lineup was solidified with Zdenka Prado (Estuary lead vocalist) on bass, Cody Knarr (Unkured) on guitar, and Ash handling drums and lead vocals; Ash is also active in such HELLS HEADBANGERS bands as SHED THE SKIN, THE VLADIMIRS, CRUCIFIED MORTALS, and SURGIKILL. Through this incarnation, the existing catalog was finally unleashed upon live audiences. By gigging/touring regularly during 2014 and 2015, FAITHXTRACTOR has gained great appeal and respect throughout the metal underground. Long one of modern metal's best-kept secrets, with Proverbial Lambs to the Ultimate Slaughter will FAITHXTRACTOR achieve the acclaim they so rightly deserve. Step forward for slaughter... (Hells Headbangers #242 CD)

MONGRELS CROSS - Psalter Of The Royal Dragon Court CD
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of MONGREL'S CROSS, Psalter of the Royal Dragon Court, on CD. Hailing from the extreme metal hotbed of Australia, MONGREL'S CROSS are one of the best-kept secrets Down Under. Mind you, the band - now pared down to a duo - have been quiet since the release of their HELLS HEADBANGERS debut album, The Sins of Aquarius, in 2012, but those years away from the prying eyes of the metal public have paid off in spades on Psalter of the Royal Dragon Court. Here, these hooligans take everything that made The Sins of Aquarius so grimily gratifying - the widescreen span of filthy thrashing, down-tempo war-marches, and epic metal grandeur alike - and render it all the more terrifying and triumphant through clear 'n' cutting production. It's the age-old axis of form meeting content, and rarely has a metal record this cleanly produced sounded so threatening, which simply underlines the powerful panache to the band's strong songwriting. (Hells Headbangers Records #216 CD)

OUTLINE - Fire Whiplash CD
Although a brand-new name, OUTLINE is actually a continuation of speed metal cult DEMONA. Feeling a name-change was necessary to refresh her outlook, mastermind vocalist/guitarist Tanza Speed joined up with HAMMR mainman J. Hammer, and together they released the Demo 1: Fire Whiplash last October via HELLS HEADBANGERS. That debut demo quickly sold out, and it was easy to hear why: OUTLINE continue all the same timeless intensity which endeared DEMONA to legions worldwide while also revealing a newer, more traditional side. With the stage thus set, OUTLINE now unleash their debut album, fittingly titled Fire Whiplash. If their debut demo presented the band in their rawest state, then Fire Whiplash is the sound of OUTLINE firing on all cylinders, retaining that raw intensity while bolstering the production considerably, and even suggesting a slightly more punkish take on their trademark speed metal. Recorded by MIDNIGHT's Commandor Vanik at his Mercenary Studios and mastering by Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind, Fire Whiplash positively explodes with an infectiousness that's simply impossible to deny. It comprises all the songs of the demo of the same name and rounds 'em out with three more new ones, but all given a crushing clarity that ably highlights their anthemic nature. Basically, if you loved DEMONA, you'll love OUTLINE just as much - if not more! (Hells Headbangers #251 CD)

It's been only two years since SHED THE SKIN's critically acclaimed debut album for HELLS HEADBANGERS, Harrowing Faith, but the Cleveland quartet have not been sitting idly by. Shows have been played, new songs have been written, and the well-oiled machine that is SHED THE SKIN has but only become more powerful. Of course, that "well-oiled machine" still includes a number of considerable scene veterans: Kyle Severn of INCANTATION on drums, Matt Sorg of Ringworm/Blood of Christ on guitars, Ash Thomas of VLADIMIRS and FAITHXTRACTOR on vocals, and Ed Stephens from Vindicator on bass. With all that combined experience, it's no surprise that Harrowing Faith sounded as massive as it does - but the follow-up is even more massive. (Hells Headbangers Records #238 CD)

THRONEUM - The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon CD
By now, THRONEUM should need no introduction. For over 20 years now, this Polish death metal cult has been a staunch and steadfast pillar of none-more-true, dyed-in-the-wool DEATH METAL, played by death metal maniacs for death metal maniacs. Their catalog is vast if not varied; they still continue to engage in split releases, as has been the underground way for decades. At every turn, THRONEUM are raw, ugly, and morbidly hideous in their expression - always dependable, never faltering - and forever committed to their gods of '80s and early '90s Metal of Death. As they've proclaimed in the past, "If you aren't into Necrovore, Sadistik Exekution, Mortem, Order From Chaos, Imperator, Asphyx, Mayhem, and Merciless - keep away from THRONEUM! That's pure Total Death!" Production is suitably rough yet reverberating, diseased tones that emit both muscle and mildew. Everything sounds so OLD, yet its presentation is remarkably fresh. In the band's own words, it's "necro psychodelic," and undoubtedly THRONEUM's most mature recording ever. The album also very nearly killed them. (Hells Headbangers #241 CD)

SPEEDWOLF - Ride With Death CD (with bonus tracks)
2018 CD re-issue with 2 bonus tracks: "Breaking Down" and "Witching Hour." Limited to only 500 copies! Who wants to "Ride With Death"? SPEEDWOLF's highly anticipated debut album is aptly titled: their locomotive, NWOBHM-fuelled heavy metal is powered by a hardcore-punk engine, cruising across the wasteland of the not-so-distant future like proverbial Road Warriors... on iron horses they ride, born to lose. Full-fledged Hessians to the bitter end, SPEEDWOLF play for keeps, each of the LP's dozen tracks an anthem unto itself - so come on and "Ride With Death"! Recommended for diehards of later ENGLISH DOGS, MIDNIGHT, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, G.I.S.M., later GBH, and the almighty MOTORHEAD! (Hells Headbangers #74 CD0

(restock) SPIT - Poison In Your Head LP
Formed in December 2012, SPIT is the hardcore\punk outfit featuring brothers Yotam Ben Horin (Useless ID) aka Tommy Gunn on guitar and Nadav Ben horin aka Fred Damage (Mondo Gecko) on vocals along with Corey Ben Yehuda (Kids Insane) on drums and Nadav "Mr. Furious" Rotem (Bass). The initial idea was to form a band that takes influences from old school 80's punk bands (Minor threat, Black Flag, D.R.I) and meld it in with later influences (Kid Dynamite, Paint it black) the result: 18 songs in 17 minutes. SPIT's debut album "Poison in your head" was recorded in Israel, mixed by J Robbins (Jawbox, Burning airlines...hell, he was in Government Issue) and mastered by Dan Coutant. SPIT's live shows have been numbered till now mostly in the local Israeli scene but have all been furious, blasting and energetic. The show usually ends with lead singer Fred's microphone chord strapped around his neck and his head in the kick drum. SPIT's music is fast, energetic, destructive and dealing with issues such as society, politics and how the world went completely wrong. US Press is limited to 300 copies on mixed marble. (Rotten To The Core Records #25)

SAWPIT - 7" (Scene Support version)
Scene Support version has new limited cover. Limited to 30 copies. Sawpit was a melodic '90s hardcore band out of Japan. (Ebullition #35.5)

BLASTING CONCEPT - Sloth Rocket LP (Scene Support 2016 version)
Influenced by Blast, SST, RKL, and Annihilation Time, Blasting Concept expertly melds '70s rock with early '80s SoCal hardcore. Goleta, Santa Barbara, and Ventura have a long history of this sort of ear damage... there is a reason that these cities produced RKL, Annihilation Time, Rat Pack, and Blasting Concept. The only odd thing is that Blasting Concept is releasing an LP on Ebullition Records, which doesn't normally release such rock influenced records, however, Jeff Capra, one of Blasting Concept's two guitarists, was also in Manumission which Ebullition released over 20 years ago. Jeff has actually been in a million hardcore bands over the last 25 years... Like It Or Not, Manumission, Holier Than Thou?, Become, Broken Needle, Embassy, Ochre, Surprise Vacation, and probably a few others as well. When guitarist Calvin (formerly of Bone Explosion) started Blasting Concept back in 2009 he was heavily influenced by Blast, but over the years the band has become more and more influenced by '70s rock while still retaining those original Blast influences. Blasting Concept has previously released an LP and a 7" on It's Alive, which are both sold out at this point. Blasting Concept is also featured in the June issue of Thrasher skate magazine! (Ebullition Records #61.5)

SPITBOY - Rasana 7" (Scene Support 2016 version)
While renovating Ebullition last year we found several hundred Spitboy 7" vinyl that we didn't know we had. These are part of the original pressing from the mid 1990s. We had to make new covers for them, but the vinyl itself is 20 years old! Spitboy was an amazing band from the San Francisco, CA area that consisted of four women. They played powerful political hardcore that was of course influenced by the fact that they were all women living in a male dominated world. "Rasana" was the first release featuring Dominique on bass. There are three tracks on this 7". Scene Support version comes with limited cover. (Ebullition Records #22)

(restock) ORCHID - Totality LP

Twentyfour songs remastered from the original recordings, including the self-titled 7", five split releases, three compilation tracks and one unreleased song. Vinyl includes a 20 page, full color, 7" x 7" booklet, and download code. (Clean Plate Records #38)

(repress) ORCHID - Gatefold LP (red vinyl pressing)
The final recordings of Orchid. These nineteen tracks are probably the best songs that Orchid ever recorded. Their sound has been honed and defined, and the recording perfectly captures Orchid's diverse combination of arty sensibilities, heartfelt emotive song writing, Mohinder-esque drumming, frantic precision, controlled mayhem, and chaotic adrenaline. An excellent record that even surpasses their previous releases. Definitely Orchid's opus. The LP comes packaged in a gatefold sleeve. The various Orchid members have gone on to form Bucket Full of Teeth, the Wolves, Ampere, and the Panthers. (Ebullition #51)

(discounted price) ECONOCHRIST - discography CDx2
Ebullition has decided to lower the price of this amazing discography CD in an attempt to get some more of these out into the world before the CD format disappears forever. A classic. And a great deal for a double CD that includes every single Econochrist song that was ever released! This double CD discography features forty-one Econochrist songs. It includes the Ruination LP, the Trained To Serve LP, the Skewed 7", the Another Victim 7", the It Runs Deep 7", as well as the songs from the Give Me Back comp LP, the Very Small World comp LPx2, the What Are You Pointing At? comp 10", and the songs from the split 7" that Econochrist did with The Detonators. (Ebullition Records #37 CD)

ORCHID - Dance Tonight!! 10" (black/yellow 50/50 vinyl)
Repressed! Ten blasts of chaotic fury and emotive noise on a cute little 10". The Orchid sound is even more aggressive than on their 12", and anyone that enjoyed any of their previous releases will be floored by these songs. Tuneful, vicious, throbbing, and chaotic hardcore played with finesse, heartfelt energy, and a wee bit of arty pretense. Repress of the Chaos is Me LP in the works as well. We went all out this time with each record being 50% black and 50% yellow (they were supposed to be 50/50 black/yellow, but the pressing plant did it wrong). (Ebullition #46)
