Descriptions for 10/20/18

Six new Tragedy songs on a 45 rpm 12" with a "tip-on" vintage style jacket that comes printed in either blue or red. The songs are less metallic than "Darker Days Ahead" and more reminiscent of Tragedy's classic dark melodic sound. For fans of Tragedy. Members of Tragedy have also played with His Hero Is Gone, Trauma, Union of Uranus, Severed Head of State, Deaththreat, Copout, Call the Police, Criminal Damage, Warcry, and From Ashes Rise (plus tons more). Yes, a CD version will eventually surface. (Tragedy Records #7)

XIBALBA ITZAES - Ah Tza Xibalba Itzaes LP/CD
It has been over twenty-four years since the original Xibalba Itzaes released its first album, "Ah Dzam Poop Ek," in 1994. As with previous recordings, "Ah Tza Xibalba Itzaes" combines the more commonly-recognized elements of black metal pioneered by the band's early influences, such as Bathory, with others inspired by the pre-Hispanic traditions of the members' Mayan ancestors. The resulting sound is one that has made the band one of the most unique black metal bands to have hailed from present-day Mexico. (Nuclear War Now Records #413)

SEX MESSIAH - Eastern Cult of Sodomy CD
Over the last decade, the Japanese underground Metal/Punk phenomenon, Sex Messiah, have produced a series of impressive demos and EPs, firmly establishing their wretched presence in the Japanese underground. At last, after ten years of developing and refining their sound, Sex Messiah presents Eastern Cult of Sodomy. With this album, Sex Messiah have perfected their style, which defies easy categorization, but might be considered an amalgamation of Brazilian black/death such as Sextrash and Impurity, Japanese punk, like GISM and Lip Cream, and the occasional riff that hints of evil thrash and early black metal like Sodom or Sabbat. (Nuclear War Now Records #408 CD)

FLESH RAG - Inside Your Mind LP
FLESH RAGS Inside your Mind LP is a thirteen song Molotov cocktail that takes out the ark and spares those on board on their own terms. It's outer space motor city madness, with riffs that work like pistons to drive the whole fuckin sonic spectacle forward with no time for piss breaks, The first full length from FLESH TAG is the perfect example of why rock n roll music is the opiate of the masses and the preferred drug of choice for locked down losers with a need for power, FLESH RAG is rock n roll salvation and only believers are gonna be saved. (Schizophrenic Records #97)

PLOMO - Sombras de Manana 7"
Ex-Gas Rag. Brand new. Sometime last year Chicago's Plomo came out with their excellent "Todo Pasa" demo cassette. Now they have followed it up with five blistering hardcore tracks on their debut EP on Verdugo Discos. "Sombras de Mañana" is sincere, straight forward, hardcore punk in Spanish that resembles some of the great 80s South American bands like Pestes. The USHC influence, however, is clearly present. Plomo is a band that shouldn't fly under your radar. (Verdugo Discos #19)

TOZCOS - Suenos Deceptivos LP
I liked Tozcos' previous 7" quite a bit, but this LP is even better, an explosive yet intricately crafted and precisely performed slab of punk rage. Tozcos are really fast and really tight, and while you can hear a little bit of Discharge influence in their riffing, the songs have more of a put-together, borderline pop kind of structure, and some riffs even get ever so slightly melodic. In terms of contemporary punk Vaaska is a really obvious reference point (though Tozcos don't have the over-the-top guitar solos), but it probably makes more sense to dig into to the deeper / older influences. Basically, Tozcos sound like lightning-fast UK82 punk, like the fastest and best songs by the Exploited or Vice Squad, but even more like the first- and second-gen European hardcore bands influenced by those groups... everything from Lama to Svart Framtid to Malinheads. Sueños Deceptivos is pretty much perfectly produced and the band sounds like they're laying into every single note that they play. If you like your hardcore punk free of flash and pretension, but still 100% raging, this should be at the top of your "to buy" list. (Verdugo Discos #18)

Two years deep and finally these beloved KC wingdings have blessed us with a debut album. Warm Bodies are quintessentially the RUSH of late 2010s punk. Each member gets their due time to flex in almost every song and at their gigs you'll get a headache if you try to figure out what they're all doing. But damn it's good. A real question mark hardcore band who can sure pen a tune. Electric. For fans of early Meat Puppets/Minutemen. (Lumpy Records #88)

IRON CAGES - Indulgence 7"
Iron Cages "Indulgence" EP is the latest from this DC hardcore punk quartet. After a string of tapes, this is their first vinyl release and their best to date. Featuring members of Firewalker, CDR and a number of broken up DC bands, they rip through 5 songs on "Indulgence." Pummeling drums drive this record from the start, while the riffs are straight forward hardcore punk with enough flourishes to keep things interesting. Oh, and the vocals are scorching too. They are most comfortable playing as fast as possible, but slow things down into mosh inducing crawls. You are just as likely to catch them covering the Ramones as Government Issue. (Society Bleeds Records #5)

Brutal, minimal, primitive metal band from Tokyo. (Fuck Yoga Records #62)

Car City has fallen seemingly out of the sky and crashed into the unsuspecting ears of the world. Hailing from Appleton, Wisconsin, the group is unapologetically power pop teeming with big guitars and fuzzy bass. Centering on harmony drenched hummable melodies; the songs take you for a cruise down Sugar Rock Lane. What is this music and where did it come from? These tunes have been bouncing around the singer/songwriter Jason Lemke's head for decades like fireflies in a jar just waiting for the right collection of roots rocker punks to assemble, twist off the lid, and give them flight. Initial sessions began at Crutch of Memory Studios in Appleton WI in early summer 2017, and wrapped in winter of that year with no expectations; just an idea of a sound and desire to create. Inspired by 90s alt power pop (ala Teenage Fanclub) the songs quickly formulated into nine three-minute fuzz-soaked slices of hard pop. The lyrical content is varied ranging from philosophical meanderings to relationship drama to self-discovery and reconciliation of lost innocence and misspent youth. What really comes through is live energy; although most of the tracks are mid-tempo stompers. You can feel an electricity that only comes from a chemistry of individuals having fun hanging out and making excellent music in spite of themselves. The Car City roster is made up of Jason Lemke (88mph), Amos Pitsch (Dusk, Tenement), Walt Hamburger (Joey Cape's One Week Records), Bill Grasley (Reality Something, Traveling Suitcase), and Timm Buechler (Paul Collins Beat, Rebel Waltz); five individuals who came together in effort to make music for the sake of music. (Plant Music Record Company #1)

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER - A Wound of Body LP/tape cassette
LP comes with duotone black/silver print, printed inner sleeve, black flood inside the jacket, download card. Tapes come with metallic silver pantone screen silk-screened j-cards. The masters of contemporary ritualistic black ambience return with the first part of their "Wound" duology, two separate releases linked sonically, visually and spiritually, together forming the group's most focused and fully realized work to date. The two releases together will offer up a sprawling, audial exploration of wounds at once physical and spiritual, social and societal, natural and environmental. Sonically, "A Wound Of Body" is a beautifully stark soundscape, dolorously dense, suffocatingly oppressive and utterly claustrophobic. An immersive black hole of bleak, cavernous dronemusic and disquieting, desolate ambience, each track a hushed and harrowing ritual; the surface minimalism underpinned by a churning morass of sound, a layered liturgy of blackened invocations and nebulous strings hovering in the shadows. (Sentient Ruin Records #69)

ATRAMENT - Scum Sect tape cassette
Tapes come with metallic silver pantone screen silk-screened j-cards and slipcases. Nihilistic Bay Area crust punks Atrament (who feature in their ranks current and past members of Vastum, Necrot, Mortuous, Abstracter, Moral Void, and Black September) return with "Scum Sect", a thirty minute sophomore offering of sprawling hostility and of marvelously regressed sonic barbarism. Fusing together crust/anarcho punk, black and death metal with classic Swedish D-Beat, Atrament draw influence from bands like Doom, Discharge, Deviated Instinct, Skitsystem, Craft, Darkthrone and Dismember to instate widespread terror and summon total sonic warfare. A must listen and own for any true fan of Wolfpack/Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem, Gehenna, Vallenfyre, Acephalix, etc. (Sentient Ruin Records #66)

MORTICIAN - Final Bloodbath Session LP
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present MORTICIAN's Final Bloodbath Session on vinyl for the first time ever! Only 700 copies pressed. Includes a bonus cover track of SOD. Comprising a staggering 28 tracks in 44 gore-soaked minutes, Final Bloodbath Session captures these legendary death metallers on recording with a real studio drummer for the first time and is the only Mortician recording to not feature any samples. As expected of such a long-running band with a deep discography, this re-recorded collection encompasses countless '90s classics as well as then-new cuts from Domain of Death (2001) and Darkest Day of Horror (2002), all captured in their rawest 'n' bloodiest state. Originally released in 2002 on CD by Roger Beaujards' own label Primitive Recordings, Final Bloodbath Session is long overdue for the vinyl treatment. Above all, it's MORTICIAN: enough said! (Hells Headbangers Records #235)

MONGRELS CROSS - Psalter Of The Royal Dragon Court LP
Only 500 copies. Comes with an insert. HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of MONGREL'S CROSS, Psalter of the Royal Dragon Court, on CD and vinyl LP formats. 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)

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the long-awaited second album of Brazil's DIABOLIC FORCE, Praise of Satan. 500 copies made. 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. (Hells Headbangers Records #215)

DEATH VOMIT - Gutted By Horrors LP
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present is proud to present DEATH VOMIT's cult debut album, Gutted by Horrors, on vinyl LP format. Originally released in 2014 on CD, Gutted by Horrors introduced this Chilean power-trio to the international underground with absolute filth and fury; not surprisingly, the album quickly became a huge hit with those diehards who heard it. From ominous beginning to bloody end, Gutted by Horrors reaps a whirlwind of ancient south-of-the-equator chaos. Within DEATH VOMIT's maelstrom can be detected the sulfurous swarm of legendary countrymen Pentagram but also the hellish furnace of Hadez and especially the gnawing surge of Abhorer - and yet, it's all done with a unique aplomb that's nothing short of addicting. Rounded out by suitably gutter-dwelling production that amplifies DEATH VOMIT's ever-downward rush 'n' crush, Gutted by Horrors finally receives the format it so deserves - vinyl, and with an exclusive bonus track! (Hells Headbangers Records #114)

SPEEDWOLF - Ride With Death LP with 7" (Gatefold and colored vinyl)
Comes with a bonus 7"! All copies pressed on milky-clear vinyl with heavy black splatter in a gatefold jacket with UV spot gloss and a large 18"x24" poster of the cover artwork. Limited to 666 copies only. Who wants to "Ride With Death"? SPEEDWOLF's highly anticipated debut album is aptly titled: their locomotive, NWOBHM-fueled 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 Records #69)

SHED THE SKIN - We Of Scorn LP (gatefold with poster)
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)

NUNSLAUGHTER/HAEMORRHAGE - split 7" picture disc
The 7" features a different layout than the regular EP and comes with a lyrics insert and is limited to only 500 copies! Midnight Morticians come to the Midnight Mass... HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to reissue, for the first time ever on picture disc, the 2005 split 7" between Devil Metal legends NUNSLAUGHTER and Spanish goregrind purveyors, HAEMORRHAGE. Two ultra-prolific and long-running cult favorites, both offering exclusive studio songs. Only Putrefaction is Real. (Hells Headbangers Records #35P)

WHIPSTRIKER - Merciless Artillery LP
A cult name in the diehard metal underground, for the past decade, WHIPSTRIKER have prolifically pursued an intense and timeless vision of speed metal. All seen under the auspices of selfsame mainman Whipstriker, these Brazilian bastards faithfully cobble together the best and most bellicose elements of classic Venom, Motorhead, Onslaught, Sodom, and Warfare and proceed to level all posers in their path with a personality that's devilish and debaucherous. And now, following a discography bursting at the seams with split 7"s, WHIPSTRIKER are set to unleash their mightiest payload in Merciless Artillery. (Hells Headbangers Records #239)

THIS WILL DESTROY YOU - New Others: Part Two LP (color vinyl)
Surprise! "New Others: Part Two" is the unexpected sixth studio album from This Will Destroy You. By the time you're seeing this, the album has already been spotted on the band's merch table on the first date of their North American tour, Spotify and Apple Music users received new release notifications out of nowhere, journalists are scrambling to play catch-up, and Rev is already packing orders for stores and distributors worldwide. This is the mixed color vinyl version. (Dark Operative Records #14)

WINDS OF PROMISE - s/t LP (color vinyl)
Winds Of Promise was formed in 2017 in Orange County, CA, when ex-Unity bandmates (guitarist Joe D. Foster and drummer Patrick Longrie) began writing and rehearsing songs together for the first time in over 30 years. Foster recruited Mike Kenyon to play bass and the band then asked longtime friend, and original Ignite vocalist, Joe Nelson to man the mic. Winds Of Promise also marks the first time Longrie has been behind the kit since his last band Uniform Choice played in 1989. (Unity Worldwide Records #5)

Descriptions for 10/13/18

RATA NEGRA - Justicia Cosmica LP
Less than a year and a half after their debut RATA NEGRA from Madrid release their sophomore album. Made up of members from JUANITA Y LOS FEOS and LA URSS this trio have a strong work ethic and deal in super catchy and upbeat punk. On Justicia Cosmica, RATA NEGRA have upped the pop element in the songs and the production is stronger and chunky, without losing any of the raw elements. Again the whole sound is immersed in the darker and morbid side of post punk but mixed with the uptempo nature and tunes and of La's X and Gorilla Angreb. Like on their debut, it's love at first listen. Justicia Cosmica was recorded and produced by the legendary Paco Loco and as in previous releases the sleeve was designed by the band's guitarist Fa Feo who also took care of the lyric insert. (La Vida Es Un Mus #179)

SIAL - Binasa 7"
Following up on their fantastic 7-track 12" from last year, Singapore's SIAL is back with Binasa, a new 6-track 7" with a Malay title that translates to 'Perish'. Binasa sees the band pushing their cacophony of urgent and raw hardcore punk to the red. It takes cues from the likes of COMES, CONFUSE or LEBENDEN TOTEN but makes sure their ferocious sound and message doesn't get lost in the noise. Their new release is a feast of ripping buzzsaw guitar, ferocious drumming and a vocalist spitting hate towards a racist, classist society that doesn't protect the interests of the marginalised. Recording this time around was done in their own collective studio space, Project 416 with Mastering done by Will Killingsworth and cover artwork by their drummer Izzad. (La Vida Es Un Mus #183)

ULTRA - Alta Montana LP
Barcelona's ULTRA finally found time to record their LP in between forced exiles, mountain retreats and relentless touring. Leaving behind a whole lotto touring and two EPs filled to the rim with short burst of hardcore punk energy, they managed to stay still long enough to compose and record their debut LP. This time around you can see they have had space, maybe even mental space, to put together an extremely well balanced and produced record. The wild riffing is still there so is the seamless rhythm section backing one of the most energetic voices in current hardcore punk. Perhaps the most noticeable changes are the delay vocals and the electronic segments and intros joining the 11 tracks together. Don't worry, ULTRA is still an anti-authoritarian riff powerhouse but this time they are proving that you can keep one foot firmly pressed in the political hardcore scene while breaking free of music expectations. Released to coincide with ULTRA's first Japanese/Seoul tour, Alta Montaña comes housed in a 350 gsm board sleeve, designed by the band using location pictures by bass player David G. and singer Ian. Laid out by grumpy extraordinary Daniel Frutos who doubled as studio engineer during the recording at La Cova Studio in Barcelona. Finally, it was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. (La Vida Es Un Mus #182)

CONSTANT MONGREL - Living In Excellence LP
Formed in 2009 Constant Mongrel begun as a two piece (Tom Ridgewell and Hugh Young) creating immediate and at times improvised songs in an old dishevelled laundry in inner city Melbourne. Inspired by the more flamboyant side of protopunk such as Electric Eels and Chrome, over the next few years the band added members Amy Hill (bass) and Andrew Murray (guitar) building upon their intense sound and developing a unique humour. Consisting of members from Terry, Woollen Kits, Nun and Taco Leg, Constant Mongrel has several previous releases on RIP Society Records and Siltbreeze Records.After three years since their last release Constant Mongrel have developed a diverse collection of songs gradually over time. Recorded in the summer of 2017 in a studio, produced by Tom Hardisty and Mastered by Mikey Young, 'Living In Excellence' brings a more formed sound and aesthetic with striking riffs and catchy rolling bass over an often unhinged, vibrant rhythm section. Added for this on particular tracks is a fried, effected saxophone with warm synths and analogue sounds added to enhance the LP's thoughtful textures. The new record has a sharper British Post Punk expression reminiscent of the usual suspects in Wire, Blitz, The Mob, Siekiera and The Fall, while also exploring elements found outside of the genre from Les Rallizes Dénudés to Youth Crew Hardcore to Country music and beyond, there's greater depth and sensibility found amongst the angst. (La Vida Es Un Mus #180)

SUBDUED - 4 Track E.P. 7"
Shaking you in and out of misery, Subdued is back. The hardened second release by London's Subdued throttles gasps of brickwall torture in and amongst the poison flora of spoken word which will legitimately make a mother cry. It nods to the impassable corners of Celtic Frost and the broken necks of enthusiastic Amebix fans, all with a listless stare into the white void of repetitive oblivion. The record comes in a wraparound sleeve with collaborative art between drummer Nicky Rat and singer Jack Sabbath. (La Vida Es Un Mus #177)

RAT CAGE - Blood On Your Boots 7"
The Ratman is back with yet another dose of first-calibre hardcore. Taking cues from the golden age of International hardcore punk circa 83 and with eyes fixed on the late TOTALITÄR, this madman manages to write and record four new anthems, which follow the trail of destruction left by his first EP last year. Do not expect many changes, there is the same fixation with HEADCLEANERS, DISARM and Swedish Käng. The same political content than their previous output, a fresh and sharp look at contemporary world affairs somehow missed in current punk. Blood on Your Boots was written and performed by Bryan Suddaby, and recorded and mixed by J. Fidler. Like previous releases it comes housed in a pocket sleeve designed by Mylo "Mangel" Oxlo and includes a lyric insert. (La Vida Es Un Mus #176)

DEATH WORSHIP - Extermination Mass: Demo tape cassette
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 TP)

HOLOCAUSTO - Guerra Total tape cassette
Holocausto is best known for their appearance on the original Warfare Noise compilation in 1986, and the 1987 debut full-length, Campo de Extermínio. Steeped in martial imagery and featuring a harsh, combative sound, these recordings were among the most ferocious and hostile produced during that era. Uncertainty has always loomed over Holocausto, and it wasn't clear when, or if, the band would record again, but they have again assembled to produce a new demo. Recorded with the classic Campo ... lineup (Armando Nuclear Soldier replaced Nedson Warfare on drums for this new demo recording), Guerra Total displays an even more genuine 1980s Brazilian sound. Recorded live using open air mics, this demo is raw and menacing in the very same way that the band's earliest recordings were. Quite simply, this may very well be the most authentic approximation of the mid-1980s Brazilian sound produced since that era. (Nuclear War Now Records #423 TP)

AGATHOCLES - To Serve... To Protect LP
Reissue of their 1999 full length.....and first time getting a proper vinyl release. 20 tracks of raw punk with a hint of grindcore brutality. Some AG classic staples come from this session and they have never sounded better. Comes with brand new artwork and layout and pressed on incredible red/black 50-50 split vinyl. Looks and sounds amazing! (Haunted Hotel Records #92)

INFERNO - Hibakusha LP
The next dream comes true !! Another classic title from the german hardcore / punk history now first time official re-released. The second full length "Hibakusha" from south germans INFERNO was recorded in summer 85 at the legendary Music Lab Studios in Berlin. 14 brutal songs recorded with a pinch of speedcore that were not to be surpassed in power at the time. The Japanese term Hibakusha is used in the Land of the Rising Sun usually in connection with the victims of the atomic bombing of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and is as album title already before the recordings. The recordings were remastered by Archie Alert (now in TERRORGRUPPE). Cover and Lyricsheet has also been reworked by Howie. The Green Hell vinyl edition comes in colored and is housed in a nice looking inside-out cover design. (Power It Up Records #253)

EMILS - Fight Together For... LP + 7"
In the 80s the first German bands began to orient themselves on the Ami-Hardcore. SPERMBIRDS, SKEEZICKS, JINGO DE LUNCH, H.O.A., UNWANTED YOUTH, S.O.S., ... In the mid 80's there were rumors about a new band from Hamburg. Did SLIME possibly fit behind the EMILS? If you read the band name from the back to the front, then these rumors of course get food. And also the spelling of the band writing was very similar to SLIME. But in the end, of course, that was nonsense. The EMILS crossed on their debut album Punk with Hardcore and also with Metal. D.R.I. had just invented the crossover. And the influences from the states were quite big on the local scene. The EMILS quickly became popular. Because they had German texts that were also very critical and direct and did not mince words. They were directed, for example, against the church, neo-Nazis, nuclear power (Chernobyl was just then exploded), conformity and also against the stupidity in their own scene, which was expressed in the song "Dumb Punk". "Fight together for ..." was her first and best LP in 1987. Here you will find the hits "Too Slow", "Church No", "Stupid Punk", "Beautiful Life" and some other good songs. Hardcore hardcore / punk rock fans should beat their hearts out with this first-ever vinyl re-release. But even for those who have "passed" this band and who are into punk, hardcore and / or crossover, it is almost inevitable to have "given" the Emils at least once in their lives. And for you now there is a little explanation why that is. The vinyl release includes a bonus EP with 4 previously unreleased live cover songs, as well as a 12-page booklet with liner notes / pictures from the past. The re-release will come out in a nice inside-out cover design. (Power It Up Records #235)

BUTCHER ABC - North Of Hell LP
The long awaited first full length from japan's goregrind institution BUTCHER ABC, 11 tracks of Putrid Gory Grinding Death Metal in the vein of old CARCASS material, really Down-tuned guitar sound + dual vocal style (a bastard of Rikard /Regurgitate and Boris/ Suppository) and 1 foot bass-drum Blast (no trigger, no twin pedal). Awesome Recordings, Lyrics done by Narutoshi Sekine + Steven "Shaitan" Eagle Arranged by BUTCHER ABC Guest guitar solo on "North of Hell" by Jong of FECUNDATION Sound Engineering and Produced by Takanori of Studio ChaosK. The vinyl edition comes in colored vinyl housed in a nice looking Inside Out Cover design Consist members of ex C.S.S.O., INTESTINE BAALISM. (Power It Up Records #255)

MORE STUPID INITIALS (M.S.I) - 9 out of 10 Doctors Recommend More Stupid Initials LP
Toronto's first recorded straight edge band, More Stupid Initials were a local fixture in the late 80's scene. The band released a pair of 7" EP's that are long out of print. Their debut record blasts out nine cuts of raw, 7" hardcore akin to the early discord singles. Their second 7" delivered with the manic speed of early Adrenalin OD or '83 NYHC, The second and final EP, finds the band blending their hardcore sound with a variety of new sounds and influences. Almost 30 years later, this long over due lp collects 29 songs containing both 7" EP's and all of their collected studio recordings. This is a piece of Toronto Hardcore history Blast it today!! Includes large zine that complies pictures, band history, flyers and more. from Toronto's most lovable boy toys. (Schizophrenic Records #95)

DECOMP/GAASP - split 7"
Newest release off of the Rust and Machine label in awhile and what better one to do with good pals from my city of Portland. On this record Decomp plays some pummeling hardcore punk with a mostly scandi influence but flirts with UK crust as the band progressed. same recording session as their 2016 Demo. Gaasp play jawbreaking swedish style hardcore in the veins of Anti-Cimex, No Security, Wolfpack and Puke. Recorded by Adam Becker and mastered by Jack Control. This is the first vinyl output by both bands, and while Gaasp has now disbanded, Decomp will soon have a release out on the Portland cult label Whispers in Darkness. both bands feature members of the old Houston band Iskallt Regn, and on this recording Decomp has members of Mundo Muerto, No Fucker, Petrification, amongst others. A small batch of these were available with in town printed covers at the Have a Good laugh fest in Vancouver, BC a couple months back but the regular version is now available. Limited pressing of 300 copies only. (Rust & Machine Records #35)

NO TREND - You Deserve Your Life LP
In 1983, No Trend booked time at Inner Ear studio to record material for what would become the Teen Love 7". In this session they also recorded 6 additional songs: some were re-recorded and featured on their first album, Too Many Humans; the rest never saw a release until well after the band was finished. After the recording session the band embarked on their first tour across the U.S., a punishing experience which resulted in drummer Michael Salkind quitting the band. He recounts: "I received 25 copies of the EP as my divorce settlement, and went on to play in a variety of bands in and around the DC area. None of them ever attained the status of No Trend, nor did I ever lose as much money and dignity." This record, You Deserve Your Life, contains the earliest recorded iteration of No Trend's material from their first Inner Ear session, and two live songs never recorded otherwise. This is the first time that this material has been available on vinyl. (Digital Regress Records #18)

NO TREND - Teen Love 7"
Only a handful of bands have been abhorred more than No Trend were during their brief tenure on the D.C. hardcore circuit. Founded to bewilder and antagonize the harDCore scene,(which the band felt was guilty of the same conformity that punk intended to rebel against) No Trend crafted an abrasive, dirge-industrial sound impossible to "slam dance" to. Their first self-released single "Teen Love" is a prime document of the band at their most cantankerous, with tracks like "Cancer" and "Mass Sterilization Caused By Venereal Disease". The B-side title track, No Trend's biggest hit if there ever was one, tells a bizarre pop tale of a budding teenage romance which violently and abruptly ends in a fiery car crash ("he was decapitated in an explosion of flame and glass fragments"). Few bands had a sense of humor as dark as No Trend's -- but they're not laughing with you, they're laughing at you. (Digital Regress Records #17)

ERIK NERVOUS - Nervoloid 7"
It should come as no surprise to you that Erik Nervous is a member of the DEVO fan club. This new 7" (his first since Ice Cream on Total Punk) Features Erik ripping through some of his favorite obscure DEVO songs from various bootleg and live records. We are not men, we are NEVO. Pressing of 500. (Digital Regress Records #23)

WONDER BREAD - Complete Solid Gold Hits 7"
Akin to Andy Kaufman's character Tony Clifton who aimed to antagonize and scorn crowds, Wonder Bread is Matt Ferrera's vessel for spewing vitriol at the punk posturers around him. Sonically similar to Tuxedomoon, With pulsing synths/ guitar interplay layered over drum machines, Wonder Bread aims to clear the room with lyrics like "I love progressive rock, if you don't like Steely Dan, you can fuck off", and "Your parents were probably listening to Styx, your parents were probably listening to Journey, that explains why your not cool". Having released 7(!) tapes last year on Bay Area label Discontinuous Innovation Inc this 7" highlights the best of this output along with the unreleased track "My Dad Was In A Hardcore Band". Pressing of 500. (Digital Regress Records #20)

We are thrilled to announce the debut LP from Oakland's Marbled Eye.

Available in Europe through E.T.T., This first-time pressing is limited to 1,000 copies on black vinyl. Includes download card. (Digital Regress Records #21)

MANE - Alpha Female LP
Debut LP from SF/ Oakland's Mane. This all-female Post-punk/ goth band create an atmosphere that lies somewhere between dread and wonder, with swirling vocal harmonies reminiscent of former Bay Area band Grass Widow, and a taste for dysphoric tenor that rivals Bauhaus. Tech-fueled displacement, masculine aggression, existential dread: it's harder than ever to survive in the Bay, and Mane vocalize this struggle better than anyone. Pressing of 500. (Digital Regress Records #13)

SUPER UNISON - Stella LP/CD/tape
Oakland, CA, trio Super Unison features Meghan O'Neil (formerly of Punch) on bass and vocals, Kevin DeFranco on guitar, and Justin Renninger (formerly of Snowing) on drums. Their new album, "Stella," was recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Jawbreaker), produced by Don Devore (Ink & Dagger), and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). Though they tackle dark and personal subject matter, they ultimately find a light that cuts through the dark, and a way to get through the loss and loneliness we all face. (Death Wish Records #205)

Manic Hispanic came together in the early 1990s as part of a work release program.

RE-VOLTS - Equator 7" picture disc flexi
To kick off a new series of flexis that Pirates Press Records will be doing over the next year and beyond, they're incredibly happy and proud to deliver a brand new track by Re-Volts. On the heels of "Wages" (featuring two more brand new tracks), this incredible flexi reinforces the excitement about what else is coming in the near future. There have been a lot of musical contributors in this band, and with this, only three actual releases, but Re-Volts has remained a staple for live music goers in the Bay Area for more than a decade. This is the yellow picture flexi disc version. (Pirates Press Records #224)

(repress) RE-VOLTS - s/t 10" (color vinyl)
Re-Volts started in 2006 with four friends (veterans of Swingin' Utters/One Man Army/Dead To Me) studio-bound to lay down the soundtrack for the incredibly strange wrestling movie "El Presidente." A year later, this classic and timeless EP came about, and now, 11 years after that original release, and following the release of "Wages" earlier this year, Pirates Press Records is incredibly excited to get this integral title back in press. Re-released in tandem with a repress of the "Wages" 7" and a flexi single for another brand-new track called "Equator," this extremely colorful reissue should satisfy the masses who have been asking them to repress this for years. New pressing now available on orange and yellow color-in-color vinyl. Vinyl version includes digital download. (Pirates Press Records #14)

Descriptions for 10/6/18

BRAINOIL - Singularity To Extinction LP/CD
Singularity To Extinction, the new full-length from Oakland sludge bringers BRAINOIL - featuring within its ranks current and past members of Deathgrave, Graves At Sea, Stormcrow, Destroy, and Grimple, among others. Their first output since 2011's punishing Death Of This Dry Season full-length, the long-anticipated Singularity To Extinction was captured at Earhammer Studios by bassist/vocalist Greg Wilkinson, mastered at Audisiege by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Necrot), and offers up seven ravenous hymns of gnarly audio antagonism all swathed in the apocalyptic cover art of John Santos (Torche, Neurosis). Infusing their signature sludge with unorthodox time signatures, Singularity To Extinction stands as BRAINOIL's fastest, crustiest, and most monolithic offering to date. Formed 20 years ago, BRAINOIL exemplifies what sludge and doom meant during its original creation -misanthropic, hateful, unrelenting and, without fail, totally and completely brutal. Fans of Eyehategod, Dystopia, Bolt Thrower take heed. LP house in a mirror board foil wrapped jacket, on colored vinyl and includes download card. Jewel case CD with booklet. (Tank Crimes Records #113)

For Fans of: WOLF EYES, GNAW THEIR TONGUES, JOHN ZORN, ANB, HOTFUCKACTIONTOTHEMAXXX, BACTERIA CULT. BASTARD NOISE "HUMAN HORROR HYMNS" sees continuous member Wood adding Saira Huff (ex-DETESTATION, ex-QUESTION) as a key writing figure and second vocalist to expand BN's "cinematic skull vision" and attack. The fusion of Huff's razor sharp, assault and Wood's trademark "OUR EARTH'S BLOOD" varied voices, "HUMAN HORROR HYMNS" is a sequenced quadruple compositional journey into the psyche of evil human ignorance, willingness to slaughter innocent beings in constant holocaust number and an unwillingness to act a respectful "guest" on this sacred blue and green sphere. Easily the most unreal production BASTARD NOISE has ever acquired. Transcending, insect war electronics that will carry the listener through the perplexities of the inner "human waste" mind. ACTUARY: Haunting and syrupy texturess...demonic vocals, & hostile inter-planetary insect take downs. The perfect balance of ear torture & exstasy. (Deep Six Records #267)

NEOLITHIC - Cult of Ignorance 7"
Baltimore's NEOLITHIC emerge from the depths with their debut EP Cult of Ignorance. The band, featuring current and former members of PULLING TEETH, SWARM OF THE LOTUS, and PUTRISECT amalgamate the guttural and horrifying sounds of underground death metal with hardcore's confrontational and violent edge. The EP, recorded at Developing Nations Recording (INTEGRITY, FULL OF HELL, NOISEM, and more) contains vitriolic tracks of teeth-gnashing, aural warfare. NEOLITHIC carry the torch for the scene's new blood and Cult of Ignorance is their ultimate statement of intent. Death Awaits! MARKETING POINTS: Featuring current and former members of PULLING TEETH, SWARM OF THE LOTUS, and PUTRISECT. Limited to 500. (Deep Six Records #283)

MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL #426 (November 2018)
Yippee-Ki-Yay, pardner! It's another rootin' tootin' issue of Maximum Rocknroll, hot off the presses! It's MRR #426, the November 2018 issue, where our cover features Fresno's FATTY CAKES AND THE PUFF PASTRIES, who bless us all with their feminist gold. Inside, Seattle's CASUAL HEX discuss their love of checkerboard (and how that relates to ska), Richmond's GUMMING love pop and country music, and Portland's LAVENDER FLU are a bunch of Deadheads-but don't worry, these are all punk bands! Internationally, Germany's ATMEN, WEITER... are a bunch of provocateurs, WARWOUND want you to know they're not a cover band, and the Je Me Souviens label is doing its best to represent an overlooked segment of Quebec's punk history. Speaking of labels, we've got an in-depth interview with New York's ever/never, and if you crave more non-band content, you're gonna love reading Bay Area author Soup discussing his latest book, Mombasa Radio Radio, and how his schizophrenia played a part in its creation. Plus we've got Miami's ANTIFACES repping their overlooked scene and Baltimore's SYRINGE on fighting bigotry and working towards representation in theirs. Still not enough for you? Seems a little greedy, but okay, fine, we'll also keep delivering the best reviews and columns in the biz. So what are you waiting for, cowboy? Order your copy today! (Maximum Rock'n'Roll #426)

Debut LP from PDX hardcore metal punks Dead Hunt. 8 tracks of pissed off Japanese and Scandinavian influenced hardcore punk played by folks in Portland who know how to do it. Think Deathside meets Wolfpack with some "to the ends of the earth" era English Dogs thrown in for good measure. Dead Hunt fuse crust punk and metal punk with the instrumental ferocity of '80s speed metal and upbeat self-empowering lyrics. The slick production bringing out the flashy guitar solos and pummeling drums making this an instant classic. (Black Water Records #72)

Destripados play high energy Discharge / Chaos U.K. influenced Scandinavian hardcore punk. Like a high speed totalitar meets skitslickers, super raw and aggressive from start to finish. Manic guitars and machine gun drums coupled with Psychotic Screaming with the spanish lyrics giving it a heavy 80's south American feel. (think R.D.P. or lobotomia) Gutless is 8 tracks of raw energy! (Black Water Records #73)

NO STATIK - Mysterious To Ourselves LP with download
The tumultuous and ever intense NO STATIK are back with 8 furious hardcore tracks and 3 deconstructed soundscapes dealing with the anxiety of feeling incomplete, forward movement and total chaos. We as people are never complete. Even when we die there are parts of ourselves and our lives that are left less refined that we would prefer. Sometimes we don't know where we are going or what the fuck is happening to us but every once in a while there are little indicators or even outside forces helping us to grow and to move along to the next stage. Life is ugly, sparse and bold. Let this LP be an indicator for you. A navigation point to help get through the mess and offer a sense of possible order and hope for the future. 300 copies on 150gr black vinyl housed in a 24pt reverse board jacket with hand made test films attached. Download included. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson. Art by Laíza Ferreira. (Iron Lung Records #111)

GELD - Soft Power 7" with download
A nasty followup EP to the Perfect Texture LP released earlier this year finds GELD in a more irascible and unhinged state. Soft Power expands on the band's vision of a freer form of D-Beat with noisier sounds, tighter dimensions, wilder visions and subtler experimentation with carefully placed nuances. Don't be tricked into thinking this is some sort of hippy dippy jamband bullshit though, every second of this is cruelly calculated and executed with the utmost care. Damn. 400 75gr vinyl copies housed in a custom ILR 80# felt weave glued pocket sleeve with insert and download code included. Recorded by Billy Gardener and Julian Cue. Art by Sam McKenzie. (Iron Lung Records #124)

C.H.E.W. - Feeding Frenzy LP with download
Do you have unexplained scars on your body, piercing eyes, an unquenchable thirst for intricately relentless hardcore punk music, deep compassion for the fate of mankind, a notion toward punishment by stoning or the capability to disrupt electrical appliances? If so, Feeding Frenzy will be your audio guide to unlocking the delicate depths of this confusing planet. Though you may have a keen sense of not belonging to the human race, it will help you to blend in and go unnoticed so you can quietly further your agenda. Enable yourself. 350 copies housed in a 24pt jacket with a 4 panel poster insert and download card included. Recorded by Matt Russell, mixed by Russell Harrison, mastered by Sean K. M. Daily. Art by Daniel Harris. (Iron Lung Records #123)

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson. Art by the band. (Iron Lung Records #122)

CEMETERY LIGHTS - Lemuralia tape cassette
Cemetery Lights, though a native of North American soil, convincingly channels and combines the musical spirits of European metal forefathers such as Mortuary Drape, Samael, and Tiamat, and melds them with the literary traditions and culture of Ancient Rome to create something that is both reverent to the past and equally relevant to the present. The band's debut demo, "Lemuralia," was first disseminated on cassette in very limited numbers on the ninth of May, 2018, to commemorate the advent of the Lemuralia festival, an ancient Roman celebration featuring exorcism rites to banish malicious spirits from the home. Now, in an effort to make the first recording more widely available, NWN! offers a reissue cassette of "Lemuralia" for the enjoyment of disciples of the aforementioned traditions. (Nuclear War Now Records #403)

BLASPHEMY - (Diehard version) Blood Upon the Altar LP (gatefold)
Die Hard Version: Red vinyl LP, gatefold jacket, 2 sided A2 poster, patch and sticker. Blasphemy's 1989 demo "Blood Upon the Altar" ushered in a new style of Black Metal, no less dark or evil than their contemporaries, but more confrontational, more violent. In addition to being heavily inspired by Bathory, Sodom, and Slayer, Blasphemy also drew from the punk infused Brazilian scene, especially Sarcófago, as well as Grindcore bands like Blood and Genocide (Repulsion). The resultant mixture of these influences yielded a demo that established a new standard for extremity in Black Metal, a bar that Blasphemy would continue to raise with each subsequent recording. This edition of Blood Upon the Altar marks the first time since its original release that it has been properly featured as a stand-alone album. LP with gatefold jacket and double sided A2 poster. (Nuclear War Now Records #398)

BLASPHEMY - (Diehard version) Blood Upon the Soundspace LP
Die Hard Version: Red vinyl LP with etching on side B, jacket, patch and sticker. Following the recent reissue campaign, NWN! is honored to present the first official release of a rarely heard 1989 rehearsal recording, Blood Upon the Soundspace. This crude open-air mic recording captures the unvarnished vigor of Blasphemy in a way that the contemporaneous studio recordings cannot. To maintain the authenticity of this release, the cover features original artwork created in 1988 by Black Priest and screenshots taken from a video recording at the Blasphemy rehearsal space during the same era. One sided MLP with etching on side B. (Nuclear War Now Records #406)

BOOTLICKER - Who Do You Serve? 7"
Second 7" of catchy DIS-ish hardcore jabs from the grime-tasing British Columbians of BOOTLICKER. The UK82-meets-DISCHARGE-meets-TOTALITÄR results in gear not unlike recent heavies like BLOODKROW BUTCHER. Catch BOOTLICKER at 2018 Not Dead Yet festival in Toronto. Only 150 copies on Black for the US. Co-released with Televised Suicide in Australia. (Warthog Records #34)

Two bands, two countries, two languages but friendship and a creative way of perception that the world around us can never be separated. Tarakany!, a punk band from Moscow/Russia and Useless ID, punk rockers from Haifa/Israel have put out the split record called "Among Other Zeros and Ones". Both bands not only have recorded each other's songs but also translated the lyrics. Initially Russian got to be English performed by USELESS ID and the other way around by Tarakany! Split Label with Jerk Off Records and Ratgirl Records. Limited to 300 copies. (Jerk Off Records #83)

JESU - Ascension LPx2

SHEER TERROR - Pall In The Family LP/CD
The bulldogs of New York Hardcore are back! Four years after their last full-length album - "Standing Up For Falling Down" - and two years after their most recent work, a split single with Lars Frederiksen's The Old Firm Casuals, the ugly and proud (also known as SHEER TERROR) have returned with four brand new stormers. Under exclusive license from Reaper Records, who will be releasing this EP stateside, REBELLION RECORDS is proud to unleash the new fury by these hardcore legends in Europe on a glorious 12" EP!

THE NEW BREED OF AMERICAN Oi! - EN ESPAÑOL! FROM CHICAGO! Now is your time to grab a copy of this explosive mix of brickwall Oi! and raucous hardcore-punk and to find out what this buzz is all about! Oh, you might want to shape up on your Spanish though, because this record is completely En Espanol! (Rebellion Records #193)

ROGUE TROOPER - Class Decline LP
Heavily impressing with both their self-released demo in 2015 and 2016's "Boots On The Ground" EP for Foreign Legion Records, Massachusetts' own ROGUE TROOPER are definitely in a league of their own! Now the troopers are back and they come out guns blazing with their debut LP for REBELLION RECORDS - "CLASS DECLINE"! With smart lyrics, a well thought out sound and catchy, boisterous anthems, these young guns can definitely gather themselves among the select few we dare to march off the beaten tracks of Oi! music, while undoubtedly delivering a future classic! This is the new breed of American Oi! Limited to 500, including double-sided insert and metallic silver print on jacket. (Rebellion Records #194)

Descriptions for 9/29/18

"The fastest band on six legs". It's a moniker that can bring up a few different ideas but if you were thinking of tired thrash, played with light hands and tight leads you'd be wrong. This Vancouver bands rhythm section, phoenixed from the ashes of Nervous Talk after they decided that a drummer for local post punk act, Spectres, would look good playing guitar. Not caring in the slightest that he had barely started playing 6 strings. Mastering Ramones-esque guitar playing quickly was simple with people of like-minded prowess. It helped that he didn't look like some wimp. All members stand over 6 feet tall. Fashion over function works for most bands but there was something special right from the start with this 3-piece. This is punk rock based in it's classic formation, with a modern edge to it that was attempted by bands like The Carbonas and surpassed by Sore Points on their 1st 7" on Hosehead Records. The hallmarks of tight quarter notes, barely time for a fill braces a neverending downstroke mastered in record time by a brand new player. Relentless, Rocket to Russia buzzsaw at an amphetamine pace with shouted, frantic vocals pushed over top of a hurricane distortion. Just enough bent-note leads to compliment the overall package without taking away any of the impact. Immediately, it was the same shining moment you got from the 1st wave of punk. Like when The Cortinas lapped The Ramones in speed on "Fascist Dictator". Or what would've happened if Slaughter and the Dogs dropped the Bowie act and went full-tilt Iggy-when-he-was-crawling-on-broken-glass-at-Max's. A tougher, grimier Dark Thoughts. Or a less melodic, more unhinged Marked Men might be apt for a modern comparison. (Deranged Records #316)

BLASPHEMY - Gods of War tape cassette
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 TP)

POISON IDEA - Feel The Darkness LPx2 (colored vinyl)
Ultra-deluxe vinyl reissue of Poison Idea's 1990 masterpiece album. Remastered from the original 24-track analog reels. First official reissue in 15 years. Expanded to include 10-track bonus LP of material from the FTD sessions. Pressed on translucent/metallic silver vinyl. Housed in deluxe "tip-on" vintage style gatefold jacket with foil stamping and printed inner sleeves. Originally released in 1990. This LP marked the high point of Poison Idea's most stable line up. While many bands strive to combine the American Hardcore style with hard rock, only a few have done so in a fashion that was truly powerful and memorable. Poison Idea set the standard for US hardcore with power and speed driven by Jerry A's acid vocals and Pig Champions out-standing songwriting and guitar work. While much of hardcore in the 1980's (and today) was driven primarily by speed and energy, many of those bands songwriting deficiencies come out when the speed drops to a mid paced rock out. Black Flag and Poison Idea are among the few that could write truly great, catchy powerful songs at a speed that was a notch or two down from full on thrash. This record was very well received when released and has been out of print on vinyl for some time. (TKO Records #170003)

TERRORIST - American Today 7"
Seemingly governed by the fact of Totalitar and Brainbombs sharing a principal songwriter, Terrorist's debut EP "American Today" infuses driving hooks with militaristic UK82 vocals and blazing wah-heavy guitar. Stark, fierce drumming propels the twin guitars between bluesy swagger and tough, pentatonic hardcore. As the riffs builds momentum through repetition, the guitar leads and frantic, shouted vocals push each song into the red. Urgent, psychedelic anarcho-punk: imagine Icons of Filth on acid. Featuring members of L.O.T.I.O.N., La Misma, Nandas, Infernoh, and Twisted Thing. (Toxic State Records #33)

BB & THE BLIPS - Shame Job LP
Australia is a violent invention. BB AND THE BLIPS formed in 2017 in Sydney on the land of the Gadigal-Wangal people of the Eora Nation. Their debut LP "Shame Job" is a whipsmart retort to the insidious and complacent "she'll be right" mentality fomented in the so-called Lucky Country. A ten song investigation into the uses and abuses of shame in various contexts, from nations and prisons to family and sex, these perfectly punk packages burst forth from the meeting point of first wave Sydney bands like TACTICS or THOUGHT CRIMINALS and the caustic anarcho genius of early CRASS. Featuring members of GOOD THROB, SEMI and HOUSEWIVES, this record is out in time to support the BLIPS on their upcoming North American tour. Accompanied by a two-color Risograph printed lyric booklet and limited to 600 copies on black vinyl. (Thrilling Living Records #12)

KINGPIN - Unreleased 7"
Boston straightedge hardcore from the early 90's Kingpin had released one 7" with Al Quint of Suburban Voice on his label then recorded this material to be released on a bigger label unfortunatley the band split and these songs became tape trader gold. We got the original masters from the band and had them remastered by Nick Townsend (Deadbeat/Fireburn drummer and engineer). New, clean clear sounding capturing an overlooked point in Bostons hardcore past. 300 on red vinyl. (Atomic Action Records #85)

WAY OUT! - Arc of Dissent LP
Brand new LP by Providence RI death rock kings. Featuring Nick Sadler from Providence's DAUGHTERS and WHAT FEEDS THE FIRE. Dark, brooding heavily influenced by The Wipers and Christian Death. East coast tour in August, west coast tour in February 2019. 300 on white vinyl. (Atomic Action Records #84)

WOUNDVAC - Terrorizing The Swarm LP
Debut 12" LP from Phoenix, Arizona's Woundvac. 13 tracks of riff-heavy blast beats with lyrics that focus on nihilism and the current political state. A chaotic blend of grind, death metal and hardcore punk that goes from blisteringly fast to punishing breakdowns with elements of D-beat punk laden throughout. Woundvac takes influence from Napalm Death, Magrudergrind, Pig Destroyer and Discharge and shares members of Skullcrush, Kashyyyk and Nagaina. Self-released and on black splatter vinyl. (Woundvac Records #1)

NASALROD - Building Machines LP
Named after the bone in Screamin' Jay's nose, Nasalrod shares his flair for frenetic, theatrical performances and powerfully delivered vocals. Their newest album Building Machines is a fun and furious blast of genre-busting spazz-prog-punk derangement in the vein of Nomeansno or Victims Family. Singer Chairman (DRATS!) embodies an unhinged hybrid of David Yow, Keith Morris and Mike Patton but with high-kicks and near perfect pitch. If you like your musicianship uncanny and adventurous, the dynamic, rhythmic interplay between bassist Mandy Morgan (BERZERK), drummer Spit Stix (formerly of LA punk legends FEAR), and guitarist Mustin Douch (mARMITS, M.A.R.C. and the Horsejerks) will have you perplexed and loving it. Comes on colored vinyl (500 copies). (Nadine Records #2)

LARRY YES - Love Vibes For All The Creatures Of The Universe LP
Cosmic folk masterpieces inspired by the journey of becoming a dad. Larry's distinctive voice recalls Marc Bolan or early Devendra Banhart. Chock full of guest musicians filling out these meticulously arranged recordings while retaining the feel of magic happening in the moment, Love Vibes is a message of radical positivity and hope in these strange times. Comes on colored vinyl (500 copies) w/full color fold out poster insert. (Nadine Records #3)

A stress position is a form of torture in which a prisoner is forced to put all of their weight on just one or two muscles.The intention is to cause their body maximum pain and stress, in hopes that they will submit to authority or give up information. Metaphorically speaking, the term could be used to describe the conditions in which many minorities are living in the USA: oppressed, impoverished, and at risk of being killed or imprisoned for merely existing. Anarcho-punk Portland band STRESS POSITION, who draw their name from this torturous practice, play dark & heavy music inspired by the likes of Killing Joke, Shellac, The Melvins, Unwound, and The Birthday Party. With the increasingly dystopian state of US affairs, combined with songwriter Jose De Lara's experience as a Mexican-American, their music takes the form of highly political, justifiably angry, anti-authoritarian noise rock. Propulsive and melodic, while possessing an undeniable weight and conviction, Stress Position is gruff and gritty with memorable riffs and moody hooks. Comes on colored vinyl (300 copies) with full color lyric sheet insert. (Nadine Records #4)

Brusseau formerly played guitar with Northwest pop punk legends The Jimmies, and currently plays guitar and sings in Portland metal band Grand Head, but this solo project showcases a very different side of him as an artist. Each of the record's stripped down, meditative tracks features Brusseau's baritone accompanied by a single instrument, from cello to moog synth to saxophone. No instruments repeat. It's an interesting album concept with beautiful, compelling results. Comes on 45 RPM, mono, black vinyl (200 copies) with a hand silk-screened cover and a full color, fold out insert. (Nadine Records #6)

BORN A LOT - Wild Constitution LP
Thrashy, convulsive, hardcore grind from 3 of Portland's best purveyors of the sound. Featuring former and current members of Honduran, Drunk Dad, Stag Bitten, POLST and Toim. Anthony Ritchey and Jason Dinges' screamed lyrics of pure catharsis tackle everything from political unrest, ubiquitous depression, disappointment in hypocrisy and culture at large, and changing feelings toward a once beloved city. Expect spastic blasts with gut-tingling breakdowns and Joseph Naylor laying down some of the most mesmerizing drumming in the entire Pacific Northwest. Comes on black 45 RPM vinyl (500 copies) with lyric sheet. (Nadine Records #7)

Experimental electronic solo project of Vern Avola (PRIZEHOG, EMS) specializing in squalling, disorienting, epic and hypnotic dream/nightmare soundscapes to accompany the approaching fall of Western civilization. "One could call it noise music, except that Avola puts as much into weirdly shifting harmonics as she does into abrasion. One could also call it drone, but Avola's approach to synth music is too rhythmic, itchy, and restless to fit easily under that label."-Scott Gordon Tone Magazine. Album art by Kellesimone Waits. Comes on colored vinyl (200 copies.) (Nadine Records #9)

THE GODDAMN GALLOWS - The Trial LP (color vinyl)
In 2004, The Goddamn Gallows began their rough and tumble voyage and haven't looked in the review mirror since. Enter 2018 and The Goddamn Gallows has reinvented themselves once again with "The Trial." From rockabilly, psychobilly and punk rock, to bluegrass and metal, "The Trial" infuses disparate sounds into a new strange recipe of seamless genre-bending profundities. This is the opaque grey vinyl version. (Sailor's Grave Records #35)

SHOOK ONES - Body Feel LP (color vinyl)
Shook Ones' "Body Feel" was recorded in the summer of 2018 at Hear Me Shimmer and the Loom Room, and was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden. You can trace the Shook Ones' sound back to classic punk bands such as 7 Seconds and Descendents, and while often garnering comparisons to Lifetime and Kid Dynamite, their unique style has just as much in common with the aforementioned bands as it does with Jawbreaker and Hot Water Music. Their hardcore and punk roots shine through, however, in their unique and quirky melodies as well as their aggressive guitar assault. LP includes digital download. This is the green vinyl version. (Revelation Records #176)

Descriptions for 9/22/18

RIPCORD - Harvest Hardcore 7"
Seminal UK Hardcore band's 1988 release reissued for the first time. Combining both the UK and North America releases, this reissue has all 7 tracks remastered with both covers. Limited to 800 copies in the USA and 200 in Europe. Another 30 year anniversary approaches! This time the Harvest Hardcore 7" and a good opportunity to re-release it in its original format. The first time since it was released all those years ago. Only this time to release it with the sound the record deserved. Luckily I'd kept the original 8 track mixing masters. And once again back to the infamous Whitehorse studio to do its magic. Both me and John were never happy with the original sound,the drums to booming and the guitars not loud enough. So here we have the revamped version. This version has all 7 tracks from that session and includes both the UK and U.S. sleeve variations. The harvest has come home. - Baz/Ripcord. (YOFC Records #2)

Portland's own Rubble are back with 10 tracks of catchy & driving anarcho peace punk delivered with Urgency! (Distort Reality Records #41)

PURE PRESSURE - Relampago De Furia 7"
Debut 8-track EP from Toronto hardcores PURE PRESSURE. Members of VIOLENT FUTURE, S.H.I.T., SIYAHKAL, PROTRUDERS playing raging hardcore pulling from pre-Roadrunner era NYHC favorites (because they just made it better then). Thrashing speedcore and screaming vocals ala No Thanks crash into Victim in Pain style breakdowns with plenty of other noticeable reference points (SOIA 7"/Life's Blood/Side By Side). Lyrics that address the nightmares of today because the 80's are dead. (Painikiller Records #73)

BURDEN - s/t 7"
Debut 7" by Boston/Cape Cod's BURDEN, featuring four tracks that mix classic Oi! sounds with the power of late 80's NYHC.

INMATES - Government Crimes 7"
Quintessential "Clevo core", this one's been long over due. Smothered in pure Japanese worship, this debut EP reissue reminds you what it was like when violence and chaos overshadowed the audio assault of total distort and drum blasts! Anthems for days and with the state of this nation, lyrics that are still relevant to this day. "There's no future. A time when nothing's real! There's no future. World's too scarred to heal!" Get it now! Limited to 500. Comes in original "Gas mask" cover or "Zouo" cover. (Painkiller/Bloodclot Records #5E)

HORSEWHIP - s/t LP (x-Reveral of Man/Combat Wounded Veteran)
A newer band of older men, HORSEWHIP reunites some early actors of the 1990s DIY hardcore scene for a now seasoned and less scrawny approach to the purging of stresses by way of dense guitar savagery, howling throat winds, unpleasant bass abuse, and the pounding drums of a grizzly attack. It's a somewhat familiar sound filtered through twenty-plus subsequent years of American life and a heavy dose of Floridian swamp dread. It's thick and it's heavy. Four unshaven men having a go at it. This is a union of Medicine and Uranus. Recorded at Rock Garden Studio by Dan Byers, mixed by Jeremy SH Griffith at Printups Studio, and finished with cover art by Richard Minino and graphic design by Shaun Drees, the dense Horsewhip 12" packs seven tracks into eighteen minutes. Delivering a dose of crusty, gnarled, noise-drenched hardcore anthems, fans of His Hero Is Gone, Cursed, Acrid, Pg.99, Orchid, and the members' prior acts Reversal Of Man and Combatwoundedveteran are advised to get on the HORSEWHIP. (Financial Ruin Records #5)

This absolute stone cold Oi! clasic includes the Indie Chart hit singles "Harry May" and "Smash The Discos" plus the anthemic "Loud Proud N Punk". Produced by the Cockney Rejects' Micky Geggus, this is another essential UK punk/Oi! classic back in print on LP thanks to Radiation Records. (Radiation Records #91)

GUN CLUB - Live At Manila Club, Florence Italy Nov. 26th 1983 LP
Jeffrey Lee Pierce and The Gun Club toured Europe in the fall/winter of 1983 between their classic second and third albums, Miami and The Birth, The Death, The Ghost, released in 1982 and 1984 respectively. This was a period of intense transformation for the band, both in terms of personnel and sound, as they moved from the blues-punk of the first two records to a more polished alternative/indie sound on their third long player. Featuring mostly songs from the first two albums as well as some rarities this live set from Florence in November of 1983 is a perfect distillation of the group. Raw, live, intense LA blues-punk from The Gun Club, released in a limited edition repress in pocket sleeve. (Radiation Records #78)

PURE HELL - These Boots Are Made For Walking 7"
Formed in Philadelphia in 1974 Pure Hell were the first all African-American punk band. The band was a huge influence on Bad Brains, friends with the New York Dolls, and shared a stage with Sid Vicious, but due to management issues were only able to release this one single. (Radiation Records #71005)

One of the best kept secrets of 80's California Hardcore Punk, TARGET OF DEMAND hailed from Long Beach and only released this 10-track smasher on the small Happy Hermit label and a couple compilation tracks before disbanding. Due to their very short existence as a band, and the fact that they were much more influenced by Teen Idles or SS Decontrol and the sounds coming out of Boston and the Midwest, rather than what was going on in California at the time, this incredibly ripping U.S. hardcore mayhem hasn't been reissued until today. Remastered by California punk legend GEZA X, from the original analog tapes, this is 100% pure American hardcore from 1983. RIYL: Black Flag, Poison Idea, Minor Threat, early Suicidal Tendencies. Limited edition of 500 copies, 400 on black vinyl and 100 on ORANGE/WHITE splatter vinyl, with original artwork and double sided lyrics insert. (Radiation Records #89)

JOY DIVISION - Atrocity Exhibition: Live In Paris 1979 LP
More stunning live material to come out of the vaults...Ian Curtis & company recorded this live at the legendary Les Bains Douches in Paris on December 18th, 1979. Containing great versions of "Love Will Tear Us Apart," "Shadowplay," "Atmosphere," "Transmission", and more, this is one of the most classic live sets of the group's storied career. (Radiation/Lively Youth Records #524)

JOY DIVISION - Live At The Paradiso Club Amsterdam, January 11th 1980 LP
In January of 1980 Joy Division kicked off a tour of The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany with a show at the legendary Paradiso Club in Amsterdam. Little did anyone know that in less than 6 months, Ian Curtis would be dead, and the brief, brilliant run of the group would be over. This is a particularly heavy and deep set, with the band performing at their angular best, and Curtis in top form vocally. Essential live broadcast for any fan of Joy Division. (Radiation/Lively Youth Records #516)

SEX PISTOLS - Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols LP
The infamous rock'n'roll swindle that generated the hysteria. (Radiation/Universal SexPisLP #77)

DEAD KENNEDYS - Live at Old Waldorf 1979 FM broadcast LP
The Old Waldorf, owned by legendary Bay Area concert promoter Bill Graham, originally opened in 1976 and was host to some of the Bay's most important early punk shows featuring The Avengers, The Dead Boys, Bad Brains, and more. Though their debut album wouldn't be released until the following year, Dead Kennedys were already local legends by 1979, and they played The Old Waldorf on October 25th of that year for a live college radio broadcast for KALX FM in Berkeley. With live early versions of some of their most famous songs, including their classic first single, "California Über Alles", as well as "Holiday In Cambodia", "Kill The Poor", "Back In Rhodesia", and more, this is a crucial early SF punk live broadcast finally available on LP! (Radiation/Sucidal Records #284)

MINUTEMEN - Sickles And Hammers Live 1981 LP
Comprised of D. Boon, Mike Watt and drummer George Hurley, all natives of working class seaport San Pedro, The Minutemen are one of the more idiosyncratic bands of the second wave of Southern California punk rock. They emerged in the age of Reagan, and epitomized the youthful disenchantment of that era with a unique sense of humor and biting lyrical content. They found their voice on their first full-length album, 1981's The Punch Line on the legendary label SST, and on that tour they absolutely destroyed San Francisco's classic punk venue, Mabuhay Gardens on the Broadway Strip Club strip. Suicidal Records presents the entire KUSF-FM broadcast of the Minutemen live from SF on 26th October 1981. Classic. (Radiation/Sucidal Records #283)

The Pagans busted out of Cleveland in the summer of 1977 along with the Dead Boys, Pere Ubu and Devo in a punk rock explosion the world would come to revere. Mike Hudson, the brains of the outfit, has continued the tradition off and on for nearly 40 years, with sporadic outbursts of new Pagans music, drunkenness and cruelty. A few years ago, Hudson moved to Los Angeles, where he began a torrid romance with former model Evita Corby, dropped his first new studio a lbum in 15 years - Hollywood High - and wrote a novel, "Fame Whore." He put together a revolving group of LA's finest rock and roll gunslingers, headlined a festival in Spain and cut "Hopped Up" - said by Get Hip Records guru Gregg Kostelich to be the "strongest Pagans single ever." With lead guitars by Richie Duguay - who played on Guns 'n Roses "The Spaghetti Incident" LP - and Capt. Ben Reagan from Richie Ramone's band, "Hopped Up" constitutes a remarkable statement by a true punk rock survivor. The Guillotines .... Houston, TX ... 2 years ago this band came together out of a love for fast edgy rock n roll. No gendre, no set formula. Just rock n roll..... Bill DeGidio aka Robert Conn (The Pagans, The Defnics, The Plague ...) on vox and guitar, Jewels (Chelsea Hotel) vox and bass, Curtis De Gidio (Chrome Kickers, The Velostacks) guitar vox, Glenn Gilbert (Vanity Crimes) lead/slide guitar and Stevie Ryder (Root) on drums.

I REFUSE IT! - Cronache Del Videotopo LPx2
Long awaited re-issue for one of the most influential and controversial post-punk combos of the 'Granducato era'. After more than three decades I Refuse It! are still quite a great thing. Rock'n'roll's later reaching of higher peaks of brutality finally made acceptable what once was considered noise and chaos and now make them appear just a bit less subversive, but their impact is still strongly felt. So, collecting and publishing their complete output in one album is definitely an historical act. Differently from Cronache del videotopo, the CD published in 2005 by the glorious Wide Records, the present double LP includes also their great version of Atto di forza numero 10 from I Ragazzi del Sole, a real gem from the Sixties Italian beat repertoire. Even if the Internet seems to have saved from oblivion any obscure document of the international hardcore punk saga, all these songs together in vinyl represent the best celebration for a band who, back in the day, really tried to stay away from the safe track of the business when it was very complicated if not self-destructive to do so.They were certainly a bit too far out for a large part of the aficionados of "classic punk" but deserved attention, at least for those who began to be tired of the old stereotypes. It's no coincidence that reviewing the Permanent Scar/Sfregio permanente casette in the magazine Il Mucchio Selvaggio I described their style as "experimental hardcore" and "a sort of Meat Puppets oriented sound". Finally, between 1982 and 1983, Italian punk got its spot on the international map. In fact, even if there were already some Italian punk bands, it was not before the emergence of the hardcore movement that we could really start talking about a real Italian scene. Needless to add that this was not just a simple musical issue, back in the day, for many of us, hardcore punk was mainly an attitude and a way of life. In Tuscany, the whole scene became known under the acronym of GDCH (Granducato Hardcore) and I Refuse It! (together with CCM, Wardogs, Putrid Fever, Traumatic, Juggernaut and others) became one of its most significant bands. Because of their varied and multiple inspirations and tendency to experiment, it's hard to consider I Refuse It! as simply a hardcore band. This 2LP collection compiles their complete recorded output for the first time and is an essential piece of Italian punk history. (Radiation/Spittle Records #80)

LAST RITES - This Is The Reaction LP
Reissue of the the only album of the Last Rites, originally released in 1984. Classic Oi! material from this Glasgow group. (Radiation/Essential Records #1)

SVART SNO - Sista Spiken i den Sista Kistan 1987 to 1997 LP
Finally, almost two decades after their demise - here it is, the ultimate and only Svart Snö compilation. The Last Nail in the Last Coffin, as the Swedish title reads, is a long overdue production for all those who were too young when the band was around, while it can serve as the finest best-of record for the rest of us. This album presents the band's development all the way from their raw and straighforward first demo in 1988 up to their much more well-produced swansong eight years later. (Radiation/Skrammel Records #21)

ELECTRIC EELS - Spin Age Blasters 7"
Following their legendary punk-as-ever 'Agitated' single, Electric Eels released their second posthumous single, 'Spin Age Blasters'/'Bunnies', on Mustard Records in 1981. Recorded in 1975 and taking the band's free-form jazz and art rock alliances to dizzying extreme, the twin-guitar swirl of 'Spin Age Blasters' sounds like 'Trout Mask Replica' on paint fumes, while 'Bunnies' features Dave E.'s relaxing Bob-Ross-like vocals and frantic clarinet bursts à la Roscoe Mitchell. (Radiation/Superior Viaduct Records #60)

OPCIO K95 - Cap Oportunitat LP

"Burnt Sugar" is their latest album, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) and produced by Jeremy Bolm of Touche Amore. With "Burnt Sugar," Gouge Away dives into personal and social political subject matter without getting the bends on their way back to surface. (Deathwish Records #207)

ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT - American Paranoia & More LP + DVD
1986's "American Paranoia" was a California thrash bash from the Bay Area's Attitude Adjustment. Along with bands like Excel, Cryptic Slaughter, and Hirax, Attitude Adjustment helped bridge the gap between blazing fast hardcore and speed metal, a sound that was duplicated many times over but rarely with the ferocity found here. This LP was originally pressed on the legendary Pusmort Records (run by famed artist Pushead) and has not been in print on vinyl since that initial pressing. LP includes DVD and is limited to 500 copies. (Taang! Records #192)

THIS WILL DESTROY YOU - New Others Part One LP (color vinyl)
"New Others Part One" is the fifth studio album from This Will Destroy You. It was produced, engineered, and mixed by John Congleton, the man responsible for the sound of the band's wildly popular self-titled sophomore album of 10 years ago. Now comprised of core members Jeremy Galindo and Christopher King with the addition of drummer Robi Gonzalez, "New Others Part One" captures the band in a familiar, but evolved ethos wherein the memorable melodic component present in their early work once again soars atop new sonic territories for the band and listener alike. This is the mixed color vinyl version. (Dark Operative Records #13)

For fans of Deafheaven and Title Fight. 7" includes digital download. (Indecision Records #113)

(restock) CRUDE S.S. - Who'll Survive LP
Pioneers of the early D-beat scene, Crude SS need little introduction to the extreme punk record-buying audience. Formed in Fagersta, Sweden in 1982, C.S.S. helped define the whole 'crust-core' subgenre, along with their pals Anti-Cimex and Mob 47. Hints of extreme metal à la Venom and Celtic Frost, mixed with the UK hardcore approach of Conflict, Crass and Discharge were the main ingredients for a recipe which allowed the band to build a following for 35 years to come. This complete discography collection, made with full cooperation from the original members to support a few long-awaited reunion shows planned for the summer of 2015, features the entire '1000 Dead Cops' demo tape from 1982, their legendary 1985 'Who'll Survive' 7" and their contribution to the 1985 'The Vikings Are Coming' V/A LP, along with an unreleased 1984 studio track and a live one.

Formed in 1983, when punk may not have been dead, but it was definitely very close, by two DISCHARGE members, brothers Tony "Bones" Roberts and Terry "Tezz" Roberts, BROKEN BONES rescued UK punk from oblivion. Their first single, "Decapitated", was released in January 1984 and reached number 10 on the British independent charts, and the follow up single "Crucifix" was released in May of the same year, inevitably it scored just as highly as the predecessor, and proved that Broken Bones meant serious business. Originally released on the FALL OUT label in 1987, "Decapitated" collects their 1984-1986 production of singles, including the aforementioned debut 7" and 'Crucifix' 7", along with the "Seeing Through My Eyes!" 10" and the "Never Say Die" 12". (Radiation Records #44)

(restock) THE KIDS - s/t LP (180 gram vinyl)
Hailing from Antwerp, Belgium, the Kids formed in 1976 to prove to the world that punk was more than just a London vs New York fashion contest. Originally released on the PHILIPS label in 1978, and highly acclaimed as one of the best punk records EVER, the Kids' debut album is finally reissued on vinyl, with two bonus tracks recorded in 1977. This is pure and quintessential PUNK ROCK. The second release on the new Radiation Deluxe Series, this classic punk LP is reissued on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe 350 gram cardboard sleeve.

(restock) THE KIDS - Naughty Kids LP (180 gram vinyl)
Released a mere eight months after their groundbreaking 1978 self-titled debut LP, The Kids' second album is a pure masterpiece of straightforward punk rock. A little less raw than their previous material, but still far from the new wave sounds the band started experimenting with on their following records, 'Naughty Kids' remains one of the best examples of non-UK '70s Punk and definitely a mandatory addition to the collection of any 'killed by death' fanatic! This reissue also features 5 bonus tracks recorded live in 1978. The third release on the new Radiation Deluxe Series, this classic punk LP is reissued on 180 gram vinyl in a deluxe 350 gram cardboard sleeve. Punk rock never looked or sounded this good.

Along with UK chart hits 'Solidarity', 'Not Just A Name', 'Machine Gun Kelly', 'Woman In Disguise' and many others, Angelic Upstarts are one of the most iconic bands of the whole skinhead subculture. The group formed in South Shields in 1977 and are still active to this day. This double vinyl LP celebrates their more belligerent days along with their mid-'80s productions, whose approach is more mature and politically challenged. A brilliant and long running UK punk group, this compilation is by far their finest music and a perfect starting point for getting into the Angelic Upstarts. Crucial. (Radiation Records #87)

Descriptions for 9/15/18

BLASPHEMY - Blood Upon the Altar LP (gatefold)
Blasphemy's 1989 demo "Blood Upon the Altar" ushered in a new style of Black Metal, no less dark or evil than their contemporaries, but more confrontational, more violent. In addition to being heavily inspired by Bathory, Sodom, and Slayer, Blasphemy also drew from the punk infused Brazilian scene, especially Sarcófago, as well as Grindcore bands like Blood and Genocide (Repulsion). The resultant mixture of these influences yielded a demo that established a new standard for extremity in Black Metal, a bar that Blasphemy would continue to raise with each subsequent recording. This edition of Blood Upon the Altar marks the first time since its original release that it has been properly featured as a stand-alone album. LP with gatefold jacket and double sided A2 poster. (Nuclear War Now Records #398)

BLASPHEMY - Blood Upon the Soundspace LP
Following the recent reissue campaign, NWN! is honored to present the first official release of a rarely heard 1989 rehearsal recording, Blood Upon the Soundspace. This crude open-air mic recording captures the unvarnished vigor of Blasphemy in a way that the contemporaneous studio recordings cannot. To maintain the authenticity of this release, the cover features original artwork created in 1988 by Black Priest and screenshots taken from a video recording at the Blasphemy rehearsal space during the same era. One sided MLP with etching on side B. (Nuclear War Now Records #406)

CORRUPTED - Se Hace por los Suenos Asesinos LP
Probably the most sought-after Corrupted album. Released back in 2004 through Japan's HG Fact label, in an initial run of 1000 copies (which sold out within the first week!), "Se hace por los suenos asesinos" has never been repressed ever since. With more than 300 people wanting this in Discogs alone, and prices going from 45 up to 100 Eur, the band and Throne decided it was time for an official repress of 700 copies for distributors/indie shops worldwide. This comes housed in a varnished gatefold sleeve with the original artwork. (Throne Records #79)

HARD SKIN - We're the Fucking Business: Singles 1975 to 1977 LP
We're the Fucking Business - Singles 1975 - 1977 is the latest collection of singles and other fucking classics from the one and only Hard Skin. It features the six amazing Oi anthems for the kids on the street from the Do You Like Hospital Food 12". The kids who fight for the working class. The kids who live for the weekend. The kids who've had their car nicked. The kids who wanna have a say but have nothing to say. In 2015 it's crucial these songs are heard - they will change the way you think and drink. There are songs about Beer, Cars, The Old Bill and being proud of what you are!! If you love Sham 69 when they were good in 1978 - then this is for you. Also included are the two cuts from the long sold out Tour 7" Saturday Night, A cover of Pertti Kurikan Nimipaivat from the equally sold out Tour Split 7", the B-Sides to the 1234 Go 7" version of We are the Wankers, two live tracks from the Owl Sanctuary in Norwich and two new cuts recorded in July 2015 for another fucking 7" that is amazing. Know what I mean?? 180 Gram Black Vinyl. 17 Tracks. (La Vida Es Un Mus/ JT Class #10)

HARD SKIN - Not Messing Around/Factory 7"
Has it really been three years since we've heard of Hard Skin. In that time the world has gone fucking nuts and Hard Skin have relocated to Majorca because of fucking brexit. Not Messing Around is a slow stomper about not messing around whilst the flip Factory was originally written in 1979 and is about not wanting to work a dead end job. Fuck that!! (La Vida Es Un Mus/JT Class #12)

(restock) FRAMTID - Under The Ashes LP
An absolutely over the top recording comprising twelve tracks of punishing hardcore with a huge wall-of-noize production adding to their faultless song writing. As noisy as the album is, all the songs are hits and hard to forget. 'The Total Arse', 'Tomorrow' and 'Consuming Shit and Mind Pollution' are what the new generation of noize-not-music punk lack, memorable anthems. Housed in a 350 gsm regular sleeve and without alterations to the art or sound from the original, this reissue tries to bring an undoubtedly classic of our generation back to life. (La Vida Es Un Mus #71)

Second pressing of NYC's Krimewatch LP on green vinyl. NYC's KRIMEWATCH are back! With catchy riffs and heavy breaks, they stay true to their NYHC roots while fusing early Japanese punk into a sharp and powerful new album. We might only be able to get these one time. Order quick or perhaps missout. (Lockin' Out Records #45)

ORCHID - Dance Tonight!! 10" (Scene Support Version)
This special Scene Support version comes with a random bonus Ebullition LP compilation (either the Illiterate, Amnesia, or HeartattaCk compilation). 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. On yellow and black 50/50 colored vinyl. (Ebullition #46)

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!

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)

(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)
