NEANDERTHAL - A History of Violence LP (one sided with etching)
The long lost Neanderthal discography finally emerges from it's cave to see the light of day. Eight anthems of destruction (5 tracks from the 1990 "Fighting Music" 7" on Slap A Ham, 2 tracks from the 1990 Neanderthal/Rorschach split 7" on Vermiform, and one track from the 1991 "Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!" compilation 7" on Slap A Ham). Without Neanderthal there would be not Powerviolence. Nanderthal was Eric Wood (Man Is the Bastardand/Cross Out), Matt Domino (Infest), and Joe Denunzio (Infest). A must have for anyone interested in Infest, Man Is The Bastard, Charred Remains, Weekend Nachos, or Lack of Interest. This is a discography of all released recordings. One sided with Neanderthal etching on B side. Let the games begin! (Deep Six Records #220)

CONDITION - Subjugated Fate 7" (with download)
CONDITION is back with a masterful stroke of devastation to follow up 2015's Actual Hell. They say some things get better with age and in this case we couldn't agree more. Subjugated Fate is an exploded blister on the rotten skin of humanity. And like that jingle that won't stop playing in your head, a festering sore in the aural canal. Still big, still vicious and always pure American D-Beat. Accept nothing less. 300 copies on radiation yellow vinyl with hand stamped labels housed in Jaybo art on a textured folder sleeve. Recorded in Lost Angeles by Mike Kriebel. Punk. (Iron Lung Records #97)

MR WRONG - Babes In Boyland LP
Guitarist Moff and Drummer Ursula started Mr. Wrong in a spider filled basement in 2015, inspired by femme punk & post-punk bands from the 70's and 80's, and the desire to learn their instruments. Many mix tapes and late-night-listening's later, many of which can be attributed to the discovery of blogs like Gunilla and T.V. Dinner, Mr. Wrong found their raw, confrontational sound. They met their bassist-to-be, Leona, at their first show (a rowdy house-show at their place of origin, Spider Vein) January 2016. Mr. Wrong continued as a 2-piece for about 9 months until realizing that Leona's bass stylings were the missing ingredient in their witches brew. At this point, Moff and Ursula had reached a new level of proficiency due to their dedicated practice schedule and tendency to never-say-never to a show. They recorded their Demo, Distraction, on local friends' cassette label, Cosmonaut Music, which captured the raw energy of their early songs (a blur of fierce 2-minute rants about jobs, witches, shitty dues, and gentrification) in the Spring of 2016. The addition of bass that Fall opened a door to the post-punk portion of Mr. Wrong's early inspiration, resulting in a wave of new song-writing which relied more heavily on complex rhythms. BABES IN BOYLAND was recorded winter of 2017 at Red Lantern Studios. At the time, they didn't know what those recordings would turn into, they just knew they had to happen. Synchronicity struck at the recording space, leading to the release of their full-length record on Water Wing. 300 copies pressed! Letterpressed covers by Stumptown Printers. (Water Wing Records #23)

CITY OF CATERPILLAR - Driving Spain Up A Wall LP
Repeater Records and Adagio830 Records are proud to announce that they are jointly releasing City Of Caterpillar's highly sought after song "Driving Spain Up A Wall" as a 12" EP. This 11 minute epic was never properly recorded during the band's initial existence and only a few live recordings of the song from 2002 - 2003 have existed up until now. "Driving Spain Up A Wall" has been a long awaited missing piece of the band's discography, but was recently recorded in their hometown of Richmond, VA and was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studio. The B-Side of the 12" also includes the track "As The Curtains Dim (little white lie)", which was originally recorded during the same sessions as City Of Caterpillar's self titled LP in 2002, but has never been released on vinyl. Both songs on this 12" brilliantly capture the restrained and explosive intensity that City Of Caterpillar helped to define as a sound in the early 00's, merging the styles of post-rock and shoegaze with punk and hardcore. This 12" will be out this summer to coincide with City Of Caterpillar's first European tour and more U.S. shows in the Fall of 2017. The 12" will be released in the U.S. by Repeater Records and in Europe via Adagio830 Records. Includes digital download card. (Repeater Records #3)

SHEER MAG - Need To Feel Your Love CD
CD version. A tear in the firmament. Beyond the noxious haze of our national nightmare - as structures of social justice and global progress topple in our midst - there lies a faint but undeniable glow in the distance. What is it? Like so many before us we are drawn to the beacon. But only by the bootstraps of our indignation do we go so boldly into the dark to find it. And so SHEER MAG has let the sparks fly since their outset, with an axe to grind against all that clouds the way. A caustic war cry, seething in solidarity with all those that suffer the brunt of ignorance and injustice in an imbalanced system. Both brazen and discrete, loud yet precise, familiar but never quite like this - SHEER MAG crept up from Philadelphia cloaked in bold insignia to channel our social and political moment with grit and groove. Cautious but full of purpose. What is it? By making a music both painfully urgent and spiritually timeworn, SHEER MAG speak to a modern pain: to a people that too feel their flame on the verge of being extinguished, yet choose to burn a bit brighter in spite of that threat. With their debut LP, the cloak has been lifted. It is time to reclaim something that has been taken from us. Here the band rolls up their sleeves, takes to the streets, and demands recompense for a tradition of inequity that's poisoned our world. However, it is in our ability to love - our primal human right to give and receive love - that the damage of such toxicity is newly explored. Love is a choice we make. We ought not obscure, neglect, or deny that choice. Through the tumult and the pain, the camaraderie and the cause, the band continues to burn a path into that great beyond. But where are we headed? On NEED TO FEEL YOUR LOVE, they make their first full-length declaration of light seen just beyond our darkness. Spoken plainly, without shame. It is love. This - is SHEER MAG. (Wilsuns Recordings #92 CD)

SHEER MAG - Compilation CD
CD version. This new Sheer Mag CD is a compilation of all three of their 7" releases (I, II, and III). Twelve songs in total all recorded in Philadelphia. Two thirds of the songs have been remastered (I and II). All epic riffs, a lo-fi and compact production, hooks galore and that soulful and gritty voice you already love... just a lot more convient to have all three 7"s on one CD! (Wilsuns Records #91 CD)

EVIL - Rites of Evil LP
Nuclear War Now! expands its ever-growing roster and reach with its release of "Rites of Evil," the debut full-length from Evil, a four-piece black/speed metal band from Tokyo, Japan. Including venerable bands such as Bathory, Hellhammer and Slayer in its list of prominent influences that in all span at least three continents and various subsets of first-wave black metal and satanic speed metal, the ones that shine through the most are early Sodom, Sarcofago, and fellow compatriots Sabbat and a certain, notorious Japanese punk metal band. (Nuclear War Now Records #346)

DR. SHRINKER - Archive I LPx2
As a product of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin metal scene of the mid 1980s, Dr. Shrinker largely toiled in obscurity throughout its early years. Unlike many death metal bands in the Tampa, Florida area of roughly the same period, for example, Dr. Shrinker did not benefit from being involved in a burgeoning scene that attracted significant attention. Thus, as it happens so often, the genius of this group of musicians was not fully recognized until years after the band's dissolution. It is with great pride that Nuclear War Now! has exhumed the remains of Dr. Shrinker's first era with two double-LP collections simply titled "Archive I" and "Archive II" compiling their entire discography. (Nuclear War Now Records #348)

DR. SHRINKER - Archive II LPx2

Unlike many death metal bands in the Tampa, Florida area of roughly the same period, for example, Dr. Shrinker did not benefit from being involved in a burgeoning scene that attracted significant attention.

(Nuclear War Now Records #349)

LEUCOSIS - Liminal LP/tape cassette
The triumphant reawakening of one of California's most obscure and best kept secrets. Thirty minutes of chaotic, vast, and abyssal atmospheric black metal suspended between the boundless obsidian majesty of DarkSpace, the deep and cutting darkness of Ash Borer, and the grandiose progressive constructs of Weakling, Judas Iscariot, and Leviathan. (Sentient Ruin Records #36)

HELL - s/t cassette tape
Sentient Ruin is Proud to bring you the cassette tape version of the new album from Salem, Oregon-based apocalyptically heavy and wretchedly visionary extreme sludge-doom behemoths HELL. Written and recorded in total isolation over a span of three years by sole mastermind M.S.W, this new self-titled opus is the reaffirmation and consecration of one of modern doom's most harrowing, demoralizing, and imaginative prospects, and the final seal on their status of absolute legends in american underground extreme metal. Spanning seven inhumanly crushing songs, for over forty-five minutes of colossal and earth-shaking audial torture - HELL's new album is already a classic, and a tyrannically iconic masterpiece that shall forever be remembered as one of the most awe-inducing turning points in extreme doom, having raised the bar of what "heavy" is to implausible heights, and redefined the concept of musical oppression through a new realm of extremism. (Sentient Ruin Records #53 TP)

BIG HUSH - Spirit/Wholes LP
Washington DC's Big Hush is made up of four friends: Genevieve Ludwig, Owen Wuerker, Chris Taylor, and Emma Baker. Their music embraces collectivity and experimentation, imbued with the tension and intimacy of close friendship. Writing is communal, and everyone sings. Songs are sharpened by the unpredictable acoustics of DIY show spaces and recorded later in the basement studio. Edits are made in the backseat of a Volvo with the windows down. Big Hush's songs are mostly three-minute concentrations of moody, solid indie-pop songwriting, with melodic dueling vocals and harmonies that poke out above the hiss of tape and distorted guitars. Big Hush wrote and recorded the songs for Wholes and Who's Smoking Your Spirit? in 2014 and 2015, exploring intersections between harmony-laden melancholy, off-kilter punk urgency, and the lush cacophony of shoegaze. The two albums document the group's cultivation of a complex and original aesthetic, one that cuts through dense textures, arrangements and harmonies with a searing catchy clarity. Now available on vinyl and re-mastered specifically for that format, Wholes and Who's Smoking Your Spirit are combined onto one LP that also includes a new bonus track. (Robotic Empire Records #122)

PYRIT - UFO LP
Cinematic, profound and absorbing. PYRIT is the solo project of Swiss German Thomas Kuratli. This first album is the musical expression of an original literary project: the story of a journey into the body - dissolving to universe and transforming into an extraterrestrial machine. Recorded in a parking lot , this album is full of ideas and vivid emotions while definitely pushing the limits of the oneman band. After moving from Zurich to Paris, Thomas started to work at his debut album UFO, originally drawn from Pyrit's love of electronic, psychedelic and kraut he creates soundscapes of a deserted concrete- world, destruction and loneliness. Sometimes there is a glimpse of hope, sometimes there is not. Pyrit's music is simultaneously loud and fragile, complex and simple, and always evolving. Navigating between electronic psyche, gaunt blues and the soundtrack of a weightless film, Thomas exposes himself by donning the costume of a disenchanted crooner in search of the ultimate slow. Originally pressed by Bookmaker Records in France, the limited pressing quickly sold out. Now repressed as a split collaboration between Robotic Empire in the US and Bookmaker in France, with freshly remastered audio specific to the more widespread vinyl release and upgraded packaging with 180 gram black vinyl and a high quality digital download included. (Robotic Empire Records #123)

NEGATIVE INSIGHT #1 with VARUKERS - Blood Money 7"
Debut issue exploring the incestuous and overlapping histories of The Varukers and Sacrilege, it features interviews with both plus Disaster as well as previously unpublished photos, a Concrete Sox photo feature, highlights of some under appreciated UKHC records, politics, and Cold War propaganda. The issue comes professionally printed and is full sized, black and white and cut 'n paste with typewriter text. The 7" included compiles three overlooked Varukers songs recorded in 1984 by what would become three-fourths of the Sacrilege line up on the "Behind The Realms Of Madness" LP. Originally appearing on the hard to find "We Don't Need Nuclear Force" LP+7" compilation on Mülleimer Records, these studio tracks have a raw and primitive metallic sound to them that continued to push what had been laid down previously on the "Led To The Slaughter" 7" and "Another Religion Another War" 12" while showing hints of the early Sacrilege sound and what was to come. (Negative Insight #1)

NEGATIVE INSIGHT #2 with CHAOS U.K. - Studio Outtakes 1981 to 1983 7"
Here is the second issue of Negative Insight, entitled the "Bristol Breakout" issue. With a focus on the deafening noise of the Bristol punk scene in the 1980s, it contains comprehensive interviews with Chaos UK, Disorder, and Riot City Records founder Simon Edwards. The issue features many previously unpublished photos from the personal archives of band members and others involved in the scene, a large four panel fold out poster, articles, and more. It comes accompanied by a Chaos UK 7" containing two rare studio tracks recorded in 1981 and 1983 and packaged in a Riot City inspired sleeve. This issue is printed as a professional magazine on coated paper instead of the previous zine style, but with all layouts done in the traditional cut 'n paste format with typewriter text. This should appeal to fans of British hardcore, 1980s layouts, and those who enjoy reading about drug abuse and living the chaos. (Negative Insight #2)

(restock) DISCARD - Four Minutes Past Midnight LP
After their 1986 demo was released in 1990 as the Death From Above EP, Per Lundström (Agoni) remained the only original member of Discard. He went on to recruit Mats Svensson from Asocial on guitar, along with two others to record this solid full- length D-Beat album, Four Minutes Past Midnight. Originally pressed by Ripping Records in 1993, a sub-label of Plastic Head Distribution, FMPM will now see the light once again on Unrest Records with permission of Mats Svensson. Discard is one of the original D-Beat bands that played furious, bare bones and in-your-face Discharge infused hardcore punk. Even though they began as a Mob 47 side project with a couple of demos, compilations and one live performance, Discard had an impact on bands like Doom, who are one of the most important and influential British crust punk bands ever. By the time FMPM came out in 1993, the D-Beat epidemic had begun as bands like Disclose, Dischange or Disfear (and Disaster before them) were proudly carrying the banner of Discharge-worship, the patterns of which had been drawn by Discard in 1985. Discard continues to play a crucial role in punk history as they influence the distorted sounds of D-Beat bands to this day. Re-mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studios (Portland, USA), this classic repress comes in a gatefold jacket with an embossed and glossed logo / title. Comes in a gatefold sleeve!! (Unrest Records #48)

(last chance) ABSOLUTION - Juxtaposition 7"
(We are going to return these next week as the record is now sold out. So this will be the last chance to get this Absolution from us.) 2017 release of two songs off their 1989 demo with 1 song never released & one re-recorded classic from the New Breed tape compilation. Featuring original members: Djinji Brown, Gavin Van Vlack (BURN) & Andy Guida (SUPERTOUCH), Dan Cav (RESSURECTION). All songs recorded by Andy Guida at Six III studios. 1st pressing of 500 copies on Wardance Records. (Wardance Records #19)

Descriptions for 9/9/17

CITY OF CATERPILLAR - s/t LP
City of Caterpillar's groundbreaking full length LP is finally back in print after 14 years. One of the first bands to successfully merge post-rock and hardcore together, with complex and intense build-ups that led into bursts of rage and chaos, City Of Caterpillar's short lived existence from 2000 - 2003 has had a major influence on the hardcore/punk scenes since the original release of this LP back in 2002. They were able to capture the dynamic sounds of Godspeed! You Black Emperor with bands like Portraits of Past and Pg. 99. City of Caterpillar shared members with Pg. 99 and members went onto bands such as Iron Reagan, Darkest Hour, Highness, Malady, Haram and Ghastly City Sleep. The LP comes with newly redesigned artwork by guitarist/vocalist of City of Caterpillar, Brandon Evans, who also designed the original artwork. (Repeater Records #2)

BARCELONA - Un Ultimo Ultrasonido Nacio Y Murio En Barcelona LP
"Un Ultimo Ultrasonido Nacio Y Murio En Barcelona" is BARCELONA's sophomore 12" of pure sonic nihilism.. A band of highs and lows: High concept in performance and lowbrow in execution. In my eyes, BARCELONA is simply a genius project, capable of creating their own universe then vomiting all over it. Their formula is distortion to the max, total free-ness and improvisation, with regurgitated bass lines and repetitive primitive beats, topped with the sharpest and nastiest lyrics on observations of our own futility and misery. In their universe, you can find HERMANN NITSCH and the entire catalogue of ESP DISKS hanging out with MANOLO KABEZABOLO and ESKORBUTO. Probably without them even being aware of it. All of the above is what you'll find in the 13 songs on this disturbing record that comes wrapped in artwork by the last true artist on earth Oriol Roca. Comes with download code. (La Vida Es Un Mus #138)

CHANNEL 3 (CH3) - Put 'Em Up LP (with stencil Insert and red vinyl)
With Put 'Em Up, CH3 has delivered a career-defining album. Written and recorded in the wary post-election days of 2017, the collection of 10 songs are connected as a tightly focused novella, a 'concept album' by nature of the timeframe and frame of mind that it was recorded in..... The music remains refined punk with traces of classic '77 Brit to 80's hardcore, power pop rock, which combined, make up the CH3 sound. Limited to 500 copies. (TKO Records #170007)

AUS ROTTEN - ...And Now Back to Our Programming LP
The second studio LP from AUS-ROTTEN, originally released in 1998, is back in print on PROFANE EXISTENCE! Considered by many to be the highlight of AUS-ROTTEN's discography, "And Now Back To Our Programming" is an absolutely essential anarcho-punk LP, and the rapid fire delivery of righteous political anger AUS-ROTTEN are famous for is just as prevalent on this release as it is on all AUS-ROTTEN records. From the second the needle drops this LP challenges you to be the change you want to see in the world. 7 songs in total including the epic 16-minute title track. (Profane Existence #168)

MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL #413 (October 2017)
It's time for Maximum Rocknroll #413, the October 2017 issue! Do you love Kleenex/LiLiPUT as much as we do? Then you will love the scoop that we have on NEON and their involvement in the early Swiss punk scene. We also speak to Rome's NOFU on the eve of their first US tour, while LOS IMPUESTOS tell us about the struggles of discovering new music and being a punk in their native Guatemala. Interested in the history of squatting? So is Amy Starecheski, the author of Ours To Lose: When Squatters Became Homeowners In New York City, who spills about an incredibly unique moment in US squatting history. In a dual interview, filmmakers Monika Estrella Negra and Michelle Garza Cervera about combating the dominance of straight white male voices in cinema. And still there's more: FURY talks about the breakthrough success of their debut LP; MACHO BOYS reveal themselves as huge wrestling fans; BAUS discusses what it means to be an "Oakland" band; and FEATURE reflect on their history just in time for the release of their posthumous LP. That sounds like a lot, right? Add all of the columnists that you hate to love as well as more reviews than you can shake a stick at! Don't miss this issue! (Maximum Rock'n'Roll #413)

CRUTCHES - Sald LP
This is the third 12in from Malmo Norragranges 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 addition to the band with a second guitarist to help ignite a brutal and raw detonation of Mangel Kang punk! (Profane Existence #169)

WILT - Wilt LP
Self titled second LP from Seattles WILT. 10 brutal tracks of blackened crust that festers somewhere in the void between old school European crust, D-beat, and death metal. Highly recommended for fans of BOLT THROWER, HELLSHOCK, INSTINCT OF SURVIVAL. Pressed on Transparent Green and Black "Cryptic Haze" Vinyl.

DOOM - Police Bastard 7" (30 Years of DOOM reissue)

Considered by many to be their best early material, this classic EP contains the songs "Means to an End," "Relief, Pt. 2," and of course, "Police Bastard." This was the second release ever by Profane Existence Records and is considered a masterpiece of "crust." This version contains all new cover artwork by Skinny and comes with a 12x12 poster of the cover art. Also included is a 7x14 collage of police brutality designed by Brandon Stench. Due to the masters being old we crated new ones. All tracks have been remaster for vinyl by Jay Matheson @ JAM ROOM STUDIOS. (Profane Existence #1.5)

The perfect blend of punk rock, humor and aggression to fuel your next skate session. So if you "Live By The Board & Die By The Board", your life just got a new soundtrack! Brings to mind the classic skate punk energy and fun of bands like JFA, Pennywise & The Faction. (Not Like You Records #19)

COMBATANT - Sick Plot 7"
Sick Plot is their first vinyl release, a 7 song 7" that brings to mind the classic sounds of The Abused or Antidote but somehow still manages to make it sound fresh. A light in the darkness, Combatant is here to take a stand and leave their mark in hardcore history. The real question is are you ready for it? (Not Like You Records #24)

BORN WRONG - s/t LP
Hamilton's BORN WRONG present their last recording. MRR called it angular, determined and fierce. In Hamilton we call a pissed the fuck off blistering hardcore attack, while the vocalist screams about soul sucking jobs, failed expectations. Yes your life is a prison and this lp with screen printed cover is limited to 300 copies. (Schizophrenic Records #89)

D.E.R. - Rancor 7"

Descriptions for 9/2/17

MAN IS THE BASTARD - Live On KSPC LP
MAN IS THE BASTARD in 1992 were experimenting with 2 bass players and Barn's on a double neck guitar and Joel on drums playing very influenced by Jazz style beats and incorporating the songs with harsh vocals and hardcore punk violence. The best way to hear MAN IS THE BASTARD was live. Kenyon could give a story about the song and it would be an instrumental and it worked. This band as we know is a one of a kind and the vibe is captured at this recording of 1992. The Brutality Continues! For fans of Infest, Lack Of Interest, Bastard Noise, Neanderthal. (Deep Six Records #152)

LEDGE/DISROTTED - split LP
Color vinyl. Chicago sludge legends DISROTTED return for another punishing, miserable round of noisey chaos, this time partnering up with fellow-Windy City masters of hatred LEDGE, who make their vinyl debut on this 20 minute split 12". Both bands spew out one track of pure malice using very different approaches, making for an interesting and unique showcase of doom. Members of Sick/Tired, Kungfu Rick and Weekend Nachos. For Fans of Sleep, Discharge, Disrupt, Grief, Soilent Green, Weekend Nachos, Spine. (Deep Six Records #262)

REPROACH - Desperate Shittown 7"
Color vinyl. New release by these unstoppable thrashing hardcore maniacs from Belgium. Six new songs full of anger, frustrations, and disgust. Hardcore! For fans of Boston Strangler, Negative Approach, Infest. (Deep Six Records #247)

TERMINAL NATION - Absolute 7"
Color vinyl. From the dissonant introduction of opening track "Assembly Line" quickly cutting into a growling beatdown, the brutality is threateningly direct and focused without restraint. Tracks like "War in the Name of Peace" through "Violator/Violated" effortlessly cross their Infest and Weekend Nachos influences with the streetwise ferocity of metallic hardcore-meets-grindcore blasts and stomps. For fans of Sick Of It All, Infest, Lack Of Interest, Weekend Nachos, Spine. (Deep Six Records #263)

PETRIFICATION - Summon Horrendous Destruction 7"
Two pressings of the tape of this debut demo literally vanished in record time, both going sold out instantly - so today we bring you the 7"! Bastard death legions from the bowels of the underworld. Petrification's old school death metal trudge batters the flesh and smashes bone with the cruelty of an orc unleashed from hell. Their debut demo tape "Summon Horrendous Destruction" is a glorious onslaught of mummified and gross as fuck old school death metal for fans of Autopsy, Nihilist, Grave, Convulse, Funebre, Cruciamentum, Disma etc. DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD INCLUDED. (Sentient Ruin Records #35)

SUTEKH HEXEN/BLSPHM - split 7"

The Layout was designed by Kevin of Sutekh Hexen from source imagery drawn by surreal horror art luminary Stephen Wilson. Mastered by James Plotkin. DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD INCLUDED. (Sentient Ruin Records #37)

AVERSIO HUMANITATIS - Longing for the Untold tape cassette
Originally released on CD in early 2017, Aversio Humanitatis' tyrannical and gargantuan masterpiece "Longing for the Untold" endures an inevitable second skin molt transforming into the true beast it was meant to become and assuming its final harrowing form as we bring you and enhanced re-release on vinyl and tape of this staggering and monumental black metal opus, now re-packaged with three bonus tracks from past splits and EPs as the B side and with new incredible artwork. With "Longing for the Untold" this Spanish band have created a colossal behemoth of technically intimidating and sonically imposing progressive black metal that lunges forth toward the listener with crushing force, levitating out of solid darkness - its mass and shape breath-taking and awe-inducing as it projects its monstrous silhouette against total darkness, resembling the stygian singularity of an inescapable black hole. Reminescent in style and execution to the darkened and cerebral craft of Icelandic black metal bandslike Zhrine, Svartidau_i, Mis_yrming, and similarly wretched black metal anomalies like Skaphe, and Deathspell Omega, and enhanced by the muscular build of dark death metal bands like Ulcerate, Abyssal, and Gorguts, "Longing for the Untold" more than a thing, is a place and time where the power of sound literally devours the senses turning perception into a smoldering and swarming void of sensorial awe and of transcendental sonic disintegration. (Sentient Ruin Records #46 TP)

BURN - Do Or Die LP/CD
"Do Or Die" is the highly anticipated new album from Burn. The album was engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at GodCity Studio and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Public Enemy, Sonic Youth). An invigorating modernization and continuation down the path these visionaries forged alone two decades earlier. Vinyl version includes digital download. (Deathwish Records #198)

(restock) SIEGE - Drop Dead LP
Siege was one of those more than awesome hardcore bands from Boston that influenced hundreds and hundreds of bands over the years. These tracks were recorded in 1984 at Radio Beat in Boston, MA. This is a classic. A must have for anyone interested in '80s hardcore. Infest, Drop Dead, Heresy, Ripcord... all of these bands were completely influenced by Siege. (Deep Six #55)

Descriptions for 8/26/17

DAGGER - Writhing In The Light of the Moon 7"
Six sonic blasts that harken back to the days when there was no hardcore that wasn't punk first and the players could actually play. Where whip-smart hooks at speed were as necessary as brute power when it came to matching bark with bite. A glass ceiling that hasn't felt but a fingerprint in the accelerated nuance-void, but DAGGER make a great showing. When you factor in CONEHEADS and LIQUIDS members, the success makes clear sense. (Lengua Armada #86)

GHOSTED - Swan Song 7"
This new Toronto band are dropping their debut single at precisely the right moment, its shimmering, caffeinated sounds the perfect soundtrack for summer nights and days in the sun. Exuberant, danceable surfpop meets raw shoegaze guitars and it's all kicked out with punky energy and timeless hooks. Limited pressing of 500 copies only! (Ugly Pop Records #62)

SAYLAVEES - Crimson Rose 7"
Seamlessly blending girlgroup harmonies, haunting psych atmosphere and tough garagepunk drive, Brooklyn's SAYLAVEES debut with a three song EP of remarkable quality.

SINISTER PURPOSE - Burn in Hell tape cassette
Following up a killer Demo SINISTER PURPOSE is back with 6 more songs and their debut on the Vinyl Conflict Label. A motorcharge fueled ep reminiscent of genre crossing bands of the punk metal realm. (Vinyl Conflict Records #13 TP)

SERQET - 2017 Demo tape cassette
Brand new group, perfect blend of Peace Punk, Post Punk and a dash of Spacerock. Think The Mob, Thatcher on Acid, Hysteria Ward and Hawkwind. The list of ex-members is quite the roster, but Serqet stands on its own and is a must hear/see! (Vinyl Conflict Records #12 TP)

STAKE - 2017 Demo tape cassette
A 5 track demo which fell into my lap and completely floored me, Stake is a brand new Richmond band composed of a couple masterminds who put this demo together and then sought out members later. Their live show is untouchable, however this demo was done all by a couple of folks with a drum machine, and it has a certain charm that keeps you flipping it constantly. A blend of Post Punk that reminds you of all your favorites but then hits you with an edge that sounds more like the Spits than Bauhaus. Yesterdays Anachronisms today! (Vinyl Conflict Records #11 TP)

EWA BRAUN - Esion LPx2 (reissue)
20 years after the release of this noise / post punk album we are happy to reissue it on vinyl. Lungfish, Sonic Youth, Fugazi influences are obvious - not much of Big Blackish feel present on their previous album (Love Peace Noise) and demos. Passionate lyrics touching important topics ("ML King", "Nuclear powerplant") and personal themes ("Escape") plus some - revolutionary at that time - instumental tracks! Hard to imagine this band parted the record with the most important anarcho punk outfit in this country back in their time (Ewa braun / Guernica Y Luno split 7"EP), those who remember had a chance to see them at the punkiest venues of 90s diy scene in East Europe. (Nikt Nic Nie Wie #48)

MEINHOF - Endless War LP/CD
Surprise. Or not? After 2 albums of the band's alter ego - UNFIXED, they have just recorded a new (their 5th!!!) set of harder / harsher / heavier tracks. I keep listening to it for the last few days and it seems that they don't loose the anger over the years. Rosy keeps screaming her anger about the unjust world backed up by the excellent wall of crusty and catchy noise. NNNW and Deviance join forces to releases this album - the CD packed in cardboard ecopack. Regular black vinyl packed in a gatefold sleeve with black and gold print, foil covered, a Meinhof card included. (Nikt Nic Nie Wie #185)

SEMPITERNAL DUSK/ENCOFFINATION - split LP
An End Theory Records/ Parasitic Records co release, 'A Monument to the Abyss of Death' spews forth a new and exclusive epic track from each band. ENCOFFINATION offer up a totally miserable dirge with 'Cemetery Earth', their first recording since their 2014 full length 'Hear me, O death'. SEMPITERNAL DUSK give us 'A Salacious Desire for Nothingness' their first recording since their 2014 debut self titled full length on DARK DESCENT and first recording with guitarist VB(Anhedonist/Weregoat). 1 track each side with a total playing time of 30 minutes. 500 copies pressed on black vinyl in full color sleeve designed by J. Stubbs. TOTAL DEATH. (Parastic Records #98)

(restock) LEBENDEN TOTEN - Static LP
LEBENDEN TOTEN is one of the greatest punk bands to ever exist and this 12min one song e.p. proves the they can still do no wrong. When we asked them if they wanted to "get weird" with a single they, albeit very slowly, jumped at the idea. We had no idea what we were in for. It blows the mind all the way open. How do they keep getting better? "Static" is a perfectly wild and superbly crafted sheet of chaotic noise with a pounding goth backbone all jacked up on Hawkwind freakout space jams. Just try and imagine what that sounds like. America's best band. Cut and paste artwork with heavy subconscious symbology laced in printed on heavy duty old world 12" single style top loading sleeves house a Chanel etched 12" single mostly on black vinyl. There may be a couple migraines in there. (Iron Lung Records #101)

(restock) GLUE - s/t LP
Glue didn't really have to get better, but they have. With barely 25 minutes of recorded music to their name-spread across a demo, an EP and a tour tape-our appetite for the band's distinctive take on hardcore had hardly been sated. However, their latest foray ups the ante in all respects, not only pushing against the edges of their sound in the ways you might expect when a band releases its first 12" record, but also by taking the things they already did well even further. Listening to Glue has always felt like you're standing next to a ticking time bomb, but something about this latest recording with its noisy, everything-in-the-red mix makes the band sound even more explosive, and I pity the soul who tries to sit still while this thing is on the turntable. However, once you get past the immediate, visceral thrill that this record inspires, you'll be able to appreciate how Glue are expanding upon the primal beats and weirdly circular, almost psychedelic take on hardcore riffing that has made them stick out from the pack since the beginning. "Flowers of Friendship," with its bright, major key main riff, smashes together Glue's savage hardcore with a traditional oi! vibe to interesting results, and the closing track is built around a hard-driving rock riff that sounds like it was lifted straight off of an old Judas Priest record. Glue don't leave hardcore behind with this record, but they don't let it limit them either, proving that this 35-year-old framework still has the capacity to inspire music as relevant and as exciting as anything the genre has produced so far. The record includes artwork by Kelsey Henderson and is released simultaneously in the USA by Glue Records and Europe by La Vida Es Un Mus. (540 Records/Glue Records #1)

Descriptions for 8/19/17

HOWLS OF EBB/KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS - split LP
Nuclear War Now! and Iron Bonehead Productions jointly present this befitting split LP from Howls of Ebb and Khthoniik Cerviiks, two of the most promising and unorthodox death/black metal bands of today. Although each band boasts its own distinct style, the combination is appropriate in that it perfectly represents two of the evolutionary offshoots that have recently begun to carry the genre in new directions. (Nuclear War Now Records #353)

MOMENT MANIACS - Two Fuckin' Pieces... LP
Moment Maniacs were a side project in the late 90's comprised of Marduk / Allegiance & Wolfpack / Anti Cimex members. Fronted by Tomas "Jonsson" of Anti Cimex / Wolfpack on vocals, T.F.P. is a punishing onslaught of filthy Swedish punk mixed with old school death metal. Recorded in 1998 at Abyss Studios by Peter Tägtgre ( Destruction, Immortal, Dimmu Borgir, Hypocrisy etc. ). Originally released by Distortion Records on CD in 1999, these ten songs of blistering chaos are now available for the first time on vinyl!! (Unrest Records #38)

DISCARD - Four Minutes Past Midnight LP
After their 1986 demo was released in 1990 as the Death From Above EP, Per Lundström (Agoni) remained the only original member of Discard. He went on to recruit Mats Svensson from Asocial on guitar, along with two others to record this solid full- length D-Beat album, Four Minutes Past Midnight. Originally pressed by Ripping Records in 1993, a sub-label of Plastic Head Distribution, FMPM will now see the light once again on Unrest Records with permission of Mats Svensson. Discard is one of the original D-Beat bands that played furious, bare bones and in-your-face Discharge infused hardcore punk. Even though they began as a Mob 47 side project with a couple of demos, compilations and one live performance, Discard had an impact on bands like Doom, who are one of the most important and influential British crust punk bands ever. By the time FMPM came out in 1993, the D-Beat epidemic had begun as bands like Disclose, Dischange or Disfear (and Disaster before them) were proudly carrying the banner of Discharge-worship, the patterns of which had been drawn by Discard in 1985. Discard continues to play a crucial role in punk history as they influence the distorted sounds of D-Beat bands to this day. Re-mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studios (Portland, USA), this classic repress comes in a gatefold jacket with an embossed and glossed logo / title. Comes in a gatefold sleeve!! (Unrest Records #48)

THE COWBOY - The Cowboy Album LP
What do you get when you add 2/3 of Homostupids to 1/2 of Pleasure Leftists? You get Cleveland's most explosive new act, THE COWBOY! Do the math, it checks out. These three gringos are confident enough in their chops to make the bold move of having their debut not just be twelve inches long but also twelve tracks long. Only seasoned veterans such as the gentlemen of THE COWBOY could pull off such a daring feat. Every one of these dozen songs is Grade A rock guitar beef Americano style, with that homegrown flavor Clev-O is so famous for. Grab your knife and fork a dig in for two sides of prime cuts. Now that the title of America's Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band seems to be up for grabs again, these fellas are throwing their hats in the ring and it's certainly not their first rodeo. So saddle up, Sally, and LET'S GO! (Fashionable Idiots #56)

CITRIC DUMMIES - Tearing Out My Nails LP
Out of the ashes of Brain Tumors comes the Dummies, the Citric ones. Jerky punk guitar driven calamitous tunes with hyper yet clear and tuneful vocals hurling toilet lyrics and an attitude that is also of-the-toilet. Its an album! An album whose grooves are densely packed with the sounds of angry nerds propelling their rotten attitudes down deep into the basement. The punk basement. This does not sound like Devo or Sheer Mag. Buy and fry. (Fashionable Idiots #57)

R.C. Boys - Rad Conspiracy 7"
After 37 years perhaps Sacramento California's first hardcore band, the R.C. Boys, are releasing their first record! Recorded on their home turf, Sacramento's suburb of Rancho Cordova, on a portable tape recorder that they just happened to bring along one night, this tape went undiscovered for over 30+ years. For fans of early punk/hardcore in America, especially what was going on in California, this is a little piece of the puzzle. Drummer Pat Stratford would go on to front two of the best Sacramento bands ever: The Square Cools and Tales of Terror. So, if you love them, check this record out. They played shows at Chinese food restaurants serving minors and abandoned chicken coops with other early Northern California hardcore/punk bands like Rebel Truth, Mod Philo and 7 Seconds. Sacramento Records tried their best to preserve the authentic distressed "early hardcore aesthetic" by printing the cover and inserts on an old analog copy machine. The record comes with an amazing 10" x 17" collage of live pictures of the band plus an extensive interview with the band's surviving members detailing teen-punks-coming-of-age, their random misadventures and predictable demise. This record was a labor of love and hopefully the first of many more archival releases documenting Sacramento's rich music history. Three songs pressed on green vinyl with a limited run of 300 records. (Sacramento Records #31)

SACRIFICO - Pulidores de Tumbas LP
Mexico City has maintained one of the most exciting punk scenes in the world for the past few years. From SPHC fam like Muerte and Inservibles to inspiring groups like Anti-Sex and Rina, we always have one eye on what's happening 'south of the border'. Of course Sacrificio doesn't escape our attention. They made our ears perk up with their self-released 2013 demo tape, they made our heats beat faster with their 2014 debut 7" on Cintas Pepe Records, and now they've got our fists in the air with a powerhouse first album. Sacrificio play hardcore punk the way it was meant to be played: straight from the heart by way of the gut, full of character and attitude, without pose or copying. On this LP, they're at their fastest, with their most complex arrangements and dynamic songs yet. In that sense, I am almost reminded of Swedish bands like Raped Teenagers and G-Anx, but Sacrificio is way more aggressive and unhinged. Fall in love with punk again. Art by my hardcore brother Yecatl (Cintas Pepe Records, Muerte and a million more bands). (SPHC Records #86)

KUROISHI - Poverty Ignorance Greed Slavery LP
Scandinavia has a rich history of a certain stereotype: "punk bands consisting of older metal guys that want to play d-beat and bring the heaviness and brutality of metal along with them". Skit System, Wolfbrigade, Disfear, etc. This idea evolved across the ocean with Tragedy (USA), whose influence was felt around the world, including back in Scandinavia. Bands like Acursed, Kontrovers, Unkind, etc worked the Tragedy influence back into this sort of metallic kang, and the rest is history (aka A LOT of records by a lot of bands over many years). It is my personal opinion that Kürøishi has managed to make the first GREAT record in this style since Pazahora made their last album 5 years ago. Veteran dudes from bands like Terveet Kadet and Deathchain playing melodic/epic metal-tinged crusty hardcore, with dynamic, memorable songs and bleak, dark riffs. The obvious comparison is Tragedy, but this is more Scandinavian and less Japanese hardcore, more depressing and more ruckus. Art by the legendary Sugi. Look out for Japan and USA tours in the near future. (SPHC Records #80)

EXIT HIPPIES - Dance Maniac LP
We have now entered the final form of Exit Hippies' evolution. Their transformation, from crust to dance, is complete. Rejoice, get jiggy with it, or just leave the hall. Exit Hippies began as a band that loved crust punk and dance music in equal parts. Their mix of shit-fi Extreme Noise Terror/Sore Throat worship with lo-fi acid house techno is legendary, and changed my life forever. Over their long discography, they have made a lot of brutal crustcore records, with varying amounts of techno interlaced throughout them. In their final form, Exit Hippies has truly fused crust and dance into a hybrid form of music that's unlike anything else I'm familiar with. No longer content to just have "punk" and "dance" rubbing shoulders, they've brought these styles together to produce an uncompromising, defiant mutant offspring that defies categorization. Imagine Underground Resistance fronted by Dean Jones, remixing Confuse songs. Maybe "Police Bastard" as performed by Model 500. If A Band Called Flash is playing "heavy heavy future funk", this is "noise noise dystopia funk". On second thought, don't even try to understand, just dance it out. (SPHC Records #65)

DEATH MARCH/APOCALYPSE TRIBE - split 7"
From the left coast, on the heels of releasing their second LP, we've got two tracks from California's Death March. Fronted by Skinhead Rob (Transplants), Death March has been an active band for the better part of five years and has released half a dozen EPs and two full-lengths in their short existence. On the flipside, hailing from New York, Apocalypse Tribe makes their vinyl debut with two tracks of punk-tinged hardcore fronted by Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis). 7" includes digital download. (Indecision Records #99)

THIS MEANS WAR! - s/t 10"
This Means War! lays out the groundwork for attacking a timeless rock-n-roll melody with the rawest of punk ingredients. It reaches back to the roots of that Strummer-esque spirit that has sustained punk for over 40 years and more so, the spirit of traditional protest music for longer than that, establishing This Means War! as a powerful new band with something to say. Combining extremely well-written, stuck-in-your-head riffs with extremely spirited, passionate and poignant sing-along lyrics is clearly what they excel at, and what will inevitably keep these records spinning for a long time to come. (Pirates Press Records #177)

Descriptions for 8/12/17

RIXE - Collection LP
Collection neatly compiles RIXE's first 3 Eps on one album. All 12 cuts have been remastered for maximum volume. Rixe appeared from nowhere and went from strength to strength over the two years since the Debut EP Coup Et Blessures was released in February 2015. The EP was their calling card and harked back to the glory years of Bologna's finest Nabat mixed with the classic 80's French Oi! sound. It was instant and loved by all and went on to have six pressings. A year later came Les Nerf A Vif - another four tracker with extra bite and bile. Every track was perfectly recorded and produced. Lean with snarl and each track a nugget of anthemic Oi!. On third EP Bapteme Du Feu there was no let up in quality. Precision Oi! with a pop element that's built to be loved now and in 20 years. Joined together the 3 EPs make a perfect album and proof that why RIxe are Oi! royalty in 2017. Comes with A2 poster by Matt Bellossi and artwork by Nicky Rat. (La Vida Es Un Mus #155)

WARWOUND - Burning The Blindfolds Of Bigots LP/CD/tape cassette
PRE-SACRILEGE (UK) there was WARWOUND...12 brand new tracks & 1 cover song. Originally established in 1982, a reformed and revitalised Warwound have been doing the rounds for a couple of years, and finally they present to you their brutal new full length. Original member Damien Thompson (Sacrilege) has been joined by Ian Glasper (Stampin' Ground, 36 Strategies, etc.), Stevie Wingrove (Hellkrusher, The Vile, etc.) and Rat (Varukers, Vile, etc.) so what do you seriously expect?! A bass and drum driven beast layered with acute riff laden rhythm and leads, while Rat's vocals are as visceral as ever!! This powerhouse Warwound line-up does not rest on the sounds of their past demos and have strengthened their delivery creating a surgically tight heavyweight metallic punk crossover fiend!! LP comes with a printed inner sleeve including lyrics and limited colour vinyl is available while quantities last. (Unrest Records #49/#33 CD/#5 TP)

ZEX - Uphill Battle LP
"Uphill Battle" is the second LP offering from Ottawa, Ontario's ZEX. The follow-up to 2015's Fight for Yourself, this album finds the band continuing on seamlessly with the classic melodic punk rock approach featured on all previous output. Recorded at Apartment 2 Recording by Topon Das, the album was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. It is ten songs in total. (Magic Bullet Records #210)

THISCLOSE/SLUDGE - split 7"
"Are you ready???" for Thisclose/Sludge Japan tour? for Japan to get a crasher course in the Grave New Beat? Thisclose unleash two tracks of their unmistakable d-beat formula: the high-charge catchy chaos of Discharge intertwined with the ballsy prancing hard rock of Discharge, backing Rodney Shades' signature heavy metal wail. Along with Gasmask Terror and Vaaska, they are one of the few bands that somehow manages to make "d-beat" stylistically interesting and exciting in 2017. Sludge follow up their LP on Crust War with two tracks of metallic Japanese hardcore. They mix the rocking and attitude of traditional Japanese hardcore like Tetsu Array with the heaviness and aggression of metallic Japanese bands like Ghoul and Demolition. Not for the faint of heart. (SPHC Records #85)

ILLYA - In Adversity 7"
Anybody into DIY punk knows that Japan has one of the largest punk scenes in the world, producing a volume of recorded output comparable to entire continents. And Tokyo is the largest city in the world, a cultural mecca for a wide range of niche expressions. So you could be forgiven if any particular DIY punk band from Tokyo has slid under the radar for you. And with only two 7"s and a couple tape/CD-R demos over 11 years, like many Japanese bands, Illya is not very prolific and hasn't drawn much attention to themselves outside their home country. But 11 years is a long time to hone your craft, and Illya's first new record in five years shows their fluent mastery of "Japanese hardcore". Three songs with all the signature characteristics in full effect: high-charge tempos, epic and inspiring riffs, desperate vocals, big gang-vocal choruses, blazing full-throttle guitar solos, powerful and memorable songwriting, tight musicianship, perfect recording. While the rest of the world turned, Illya was patiently analyzing and comprehending their Balance and Poison Cola records; they know Japanese hardcore like studied collectors, they play it like born naturals. For those like me, who long for the days when this style of punk was a lot more common.....welcome to your new favorite band. Art by the esteemed Zukk. Mastered for vinyl by Enormous Door. Cut at Lucky Lacquers. Housed in a Stoughton tip-on jacket with transparent vellum insert. LP in the works. (SPHC Records #82)

THISCLOSE - What Glory? 7"
Latest and greatest from the flagship band of the Grave New Beat. Thisclose returns with 5 tracks of their patented, unmistakable brand of d-beat hardcore, fusing all the signature aspects and all the nitty gritty details of the entire Discharge discography into one cohesive exploration of "d-beat punk music". One mid-tempo rocker and four short fast smashers. Perfect. Art by lovely dude Andrew Morgan (Endless Grinning Skulls/Viral Age Records). (SPHC Records #81)

NEW YORK AGAINST THE BELZEBU/LO-FI - split 7"
After the Lotus Fucker/Sete Star Sept/New York Against the Belzebu gig in Sao Paulo, Rogerio and Nelson came to me and said they had a great idea... New York Against the Belzebu are pioneers of Brazilian grind and were essential in creating the Brazilian noisecore/grind scene as it is today. Who else was making Brazilian pressings of Meatshits records in the mid-90's, you know? These guys did a lot to bring Brazil to the world of grind, and bring the world of grind to Brazil. Their side is 15 tracks of a straight-forward variation on their style of noisecore. No wacky instrumentation here, just unadulterated noisecore chaos. Lo-Fi are Brazil's baddest rock-and-roll cowboys and are my hardcore brothers until death. Rogerio explained to me once that "a good band should reinvent themselves every couple of years", and Lo-Fi has run the gamut from GG Allin-influenced scum punk to skate rock to raw garage love songs to psych rock. I'm gonna guess that our crazy noise bullshit rubbed off on Rogerio while he was driving Lotus Fucker and Sete Star Sept on tour, cause now Lo-Fi is going in their most raw and aggressive direction yet, with 5 of their shortest/fastest/loudest songs to date. In years past, this would have belonged on 625 Records. Art by the esteemed Lobo Rameriez. (SPHC Records #78)

OXYMORON - Feed The Breed LP
Oxymoron is one of the most popular punk rock bands of the last 20 years. While they broke up over a decade ago, all of their other albums have since been reissued with the exception of this one. Now, "Feed The Breed" is finally available for the first time on vinyl in the US. (State Line Records #21)

TOPNOVIL/BUM CITY SAINTS - split 7"
The only thing better than record labels putting together awesome split records is when bands do it themselves. These two bands, Topnovil from Australia and Bum City Saints from the Bay Area, found each other thanks to their fans and friends, and have been their own driving force in bringing this split to life. True to form for both outfits, there is no shortage of passion and raucous energy on this six-song split 7". 7" includes digital download and is limited to 500 copies. (Pirates Press Records #181)

THE GENERATORS - Street Justice/Blow Yourself Up 7"
The origin of Los Angeles, CA's influential punk band The Generators dates back to 1997, just a few miles from the skyscrapers of downtown. They will be releasing their first new full-length since 2014 later this year. "Street Justice b/w Blow Yourself Up" is the debut single from the album and takes the band back to the early energy and spirit from '97, when they started with hard-hitting rock 'n' roll influenced both by '70s UK and '80s American punk bands. 7" includes digital download. (Pirates Press Records #180)

RACETRAITOR - Invisible Battles Against Invisible Fortresses 7"
The Chicago, IL agitators deliver a musical Molotov cocktail with the same incendiary spirit as the band's metal/hardcore punk missives last heard in the late-'90s. Racetraitor is back to take aim at this crazy election cycle with "Invisible Battles Against Invisible Fortresses," the first new music the band has released in roughly 17 years. "Invisible Battles Against Invisible Fortresses" reunites the group's classic lineup of Mostofi, Hurley, guitarists Dan Binaei and Eric Bartholomae, and bassist Brent Decker. 7" includes digital download of EP plus one additional track and is limited to 500 copies. (Organized Crime Records #68)

BATTERY - For The Rejected By The Rejected LP
Battery was a staple of the Washington, DC hardcore scene during the '90s, formed by a who's who of that scene, including members of Damnation A.D., Better Than A Thousand, Shelter, Ashes and Worlds Collide. From 1991-1998 the band released numerous EPs and LPs that have mostly been in high demand for reissues leading up to Revelation Records reissuing "Whatever It Takes" in 2014. To coincide with the band's appearances at Damaged City Fest in DC and Rev Fest in California in 2017, Battery has hand-selected their favorite tracks from throughout their career for this release, presenting only the most powerful of their output. LP includes digital download. (Revelation Records #170)

ALL OUT WAR - Give Us Extinction LP
For over 25 years, All Out War proves that age has only honed the band's capabilities on "Dying Gods" and drove the band to look toward to the next chapter in "Give Us Extinction." "Give Us Extinction" continues in the assault, but strives to unleash even more pummeling brutality. "Give Us Extinction," like the timelessly brutal albums "For Those Who Were Crucified" and "Dying Gods," was engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Turmoil, Buried Alive, Suicide Silence) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Studios in New York. (Organized Crime Records #69)

Descriptions for 8/5/17

WORLD BURNS TO DEATH - Here A Dream Dies Every Day LP
Fourth LP from World Burns To Death. Eight songs. A limited edition collection of rarities and Japanese tour editions that defined the later evolution of the band's sound. Mastered by ENORMOUS DOOR for full impact, with powerful new artwork. 150 gram vinyl. (Analogue Violence Records #1)

THOU - Peasant LPx2
Before THOU released their 2014 Gambit Big Easy Award winning, "Summit," they spent the spring of 2008 rushing to complete their second full-length, "Peasant," in time for a month and a half trek across the United States. This record would be their last true album to abandon melody for the self indulgent, "Southern" styled riffing that had most of their early fans saying, "I thought you'd be bigger with more tattoos and beards." Originally released on vinyl by Level Plane Records, this edition has been remastered by Adam Tucker (Signature Tone Recording) and housed in a tip-on style gatefold jacket with 180gram black vinyl and a 20 page booklet. This double LP also offers the complete version, including the CD-only tracks from the To Carry a Stone EP (released in 2008 by Noxious Noize) as well as bonus tracks from the Malfeasance/Retribution EP (released in 2008 on Feast of Tentacles and Rimbaud) and an unreleased cover of "Aneurysm." 180 gram vinyl. (Robotic Empire Records #116)

KATASTROF - s/t 7"
Beach Impediment is proud to present the US pressing of the debut release by Sweden's KATASTROF. A few years after the demise of their short lived yet utterly fantastic project known as INSTITUTION, the voice of TOTALITAR and the riff boss of HERATYS have come together yet again to bring us some more top shelf mangel; a style that they've proven to be knowledgeable in the composition and execution of for quite some time now. Five tracks recorded at Communichaos Clay Station that will please any enthusiast of the genre/art form that is Swedish hardcore. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve and includes a download code. Limited to 500. (Beach Impediment Records #28)

FLESH RAG - Stay Away 7"
FLESH RAG is a garage punk rock 'n' roll suicide band that throws you back to the '70s when there was a Cleveland Punk sound. Three songs of rock in fused punk that will have your toes tapping and leg a shaking. If you had a tambourine you would have already broken it and will be stomping in the remnants of said tambourine and broken beer bottles. For fans of guitar driven rock 'n' roll fun. First pressing includes screen printed sleeve. (Schizophrenic Records #90)

TV FREAKS - D.Y.O.T./The Pits 7"
Hamilton's favored sons are back with a 2 song 7". This record continues with the patent buzzsaw guitar-rock barrage sound as they bash out more Aussie inspired garage punk. "D.Y.O.T." is more of a straight forward rocker but goddamn it still rocks. For fans of angular, but chunky garage punk fun. First printing includes die cut screen printed sleeve. (Schizophrenic Records #87)

SICK OF SHIT - Fuck You Volume One 7"
Hamilton's SICK OF SHIT present their dark, crust infused 4 song debut 7" and it is one smoking pipe bomb of crust, aggressive riffs, and furious pounding drums. Biting bitter vocals reminisce about failure, hatred, and society expectations while the band attacks you with a musical barrage of heavy, crust punk.. Amazing cover art by Darrin Crossgrove gives this a VOI VOD feel. The band contains ex members of At What Cost, Haymaker, and Gunnar Hansen. (Schizophrenic Records #91)

ABSOLUT - Demo 2013 7"
For five years Toronto's ABSOLUT slayed as a powerhouse of d-beat raw punk mayhem. Now defunct, their memory lives on in a brand new remastered version of their "Demo 2013." If you thought that the ABSOLUT demo crushed you the first time around, be prepared to have your mind and ears blown by this chunk of wax! Limited to 300 copies. (Schizophrenic Records #92)

NEON - s/t 7"
Lost Swiss Punk Treasure! Two Song 7"EP by all female foursome NEON. The band featured Astrid Spirig (vocals), Dagmar Heinrich (guitar), Loredana Zandonella (bass), and Gitta Gsell (drums). Astrid was the third singer of LILIPUT and sang on both LILIPUT full length LP's. NEON practiced for 6 months and wrote 6 songs. They played their first gig on Nov 1st 1978 at the Club Hey in Zurich. In December of that year, a live performance on Swiss television took place for a program about "women in show business." The band wasn't happy with the experience and disbanded a few months later only performing a handful of gigs. Fast forward to 2016, Dagmar finds an old cassette at her home with the recordings of the two songs "Neon" and "Nazi Schatzi." These were produced for the ill-fated television appearance and are the only recorded NEON songs in existence. Covers and inserts printed by Stumptown Printers. (Water Wing Records #22)

AVERSIO HUMANITATIS - Longing For The Untold LP
Originally released on CD in early 2017, Aversio Humanitatis' tyrannical and gargantuan masterpiece "Longing For The Untold" endures an inevitable second skin molt transforming into the true beast it was meant to become and assuming its final harrowing form as we bring you and enhanced re-release on vinyl and tape of this staggering and monumental black metal opus, now re-packaged with three bonus tracks from past splits and EPs as the B side and with new incredible artwork. With "Longing For The Untold" this Spanish band have created a colossal behemoth of technically intimidating and sonically imposing progressive black metal that lunges forth toward the listener with crushing force, levitating out of solid darkness - its mass and shape breath-taking and awe-inducing as it projects its monstrous silhouette against total darkness, resembling the stygian singularity of an inescapable black hole. Reminescent in style and execution to the darkened and cerebral craft of Icelandic black metal bandslike Zhrine, Svartidauoi, Mispyrming, and similarly wretched black metal anomalies like Skaphe, and Deathspell Omega, and enhanced by the muscular build of dark death metal bands like Ulcerate, Abyssal, and Gorguts, "Longing For The Untold" more than a thing, is a place and time where the power of sound literally devours the senses turning perception into a smoldering and swarming void of sensorial awe and of transcendental sonic disintegration.

A STICK AND A STONE - The Long Lost Art of Getting Lost cassette tape
On his third full-length album under the eclectic moniker A Stick and A Stone, composer, bassist, and vocalist Elliott Harvey and viola player/ "album co-conspirator" Myles Donovan (Disemballerina, Negative Queen, Ominous Cloud Ensemble) explore new sludgy, tumultuous terrain while retaining the signature elements of ethereal harmonies, haunting vocals, and potent lyricism equated with Harvey's previous work. "The Long Lost Art of Getting Lost" dives into the shadows of this age, upholding the power of resilience amidst times of uncertainty. Harvey, a transgender male with a distinctively androgynous vocal range, is no stranger to carving his way through uncharted territory as a musician. A Stick and a Stone's unusual style arises from blending paradoxical essences; on this album, gritty bass merges with elegant strings, rugged howls are echoed by graceful whispers, heavy drums are laced with ghostly soundscapes - to materialize in the end an unquestionable modern minimalistic doom masterpiece of our times.

EDGEWISE - Angels & Addicts CD
From Pennsyvania hardcore legends. This blistering release, engineered and produced by Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday), combines an old school hardcore sound with relentless, grinding metal. Edgewise's first release after a 20 year hiatus, "Angels & Addicts" is well worth the wait. The band's current lineup features longtime Edgewise members Al Spina on vocals, Vince Spina on guitar, and Matt Tincani on bass, along with veterans Jess Goldey (My Turn to Win) on guitar and Kevin Ruggeri (Ten Foot Pole) on drums. After successfully testing their new lineup in Philly hardcore shows featuring the likes of Slapshot and Wisdom in Chains, Edgewise combined forces with seasoned producer Fred Mascherino to generate this four song EP. In a recent interview with In Effect Hardcore, Edgewise describes "Angels & Addicts" as a fusion of influences, drawing heavily from the late '80s/early '90s New York hardcore bands of their youth. But with lineup additions Jess Goldey and Kevin Ruggeri come new elements, including brutal, mosh inspiring breakdowns and relentless double bass on the drums. "Angels & Addicts" brings a unique sound that any hardcore or metal fan should check out. (Cointoss Records #13 CD)

BLESSED - ii LP
Blessed is a band based on uncompromising work ethic, a commitment to democratic involvement between members, striving never to repeat itself. Comprised of members from the Fraser Valley, the off-to-the-side Vancouver suburb the group resides in, Drew Riekman, Jake Holmes, Reuben Houweling, and Mitchell Trainor came together to create something they had been looking for in their previous projects. After a winter in Montreal, guitarist/vocalist Drew Riekman approached the three other members about a project designed to fulfill a desire wherein they could create music with no boundaries in it's creative process, and tour as relentlessly as they pleased. After touring North America once and Canada three times on the strength of their first four song EP, Blessed is releasing this new four song EP. Recorded over 7 days at Vancouver's Rain City, the new EP finds the group exploring territory akin to Television, Wire, Deerhoof, and Liars. Experimenting with the addition of programmed drums, synthesizers, and no limits on how short or long a song could be. Mixed by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung) and mastered by Paul Gold (Akron/Family, The War On Drugs), Blessed has crafted a four song EP that clocks in at 26 minutes spanning an even vaster sonic landscape than their previous EP. Frantic yet calculated, wiry yet groove oriented, the group are expanding the definition of what band can create and still maintain its core sound. (Cointoss Records #14)

MIND FORCE - Demo 7"
Mindforce (featuring members of Living Lazer) hails from the Hudson Valley and mixes thrashy high energy tempos with nyhc groove. Their 2016 demo was originally released as a cassette on Glacial Records and soon followed by a Euro press on Straight and Alert records. Four songs of hard-hitting crossover and profound lyrics are now seeing a vinyl release through Coin Toss records. Think Leeway, Cro-Mags and Icemen colliding with Anthrax and Nuclear Assault. (Cointoss Records #15)

OUT OF BODY - Voiceless LP/cassette tape
Creating a beautiful monster from nothing but determination, Out Of Body are an Austin based alternative rock quartet formed by progressive musician Gjared Robinson. After a few home recordings and solo acoustic coffee shop stints, Robinson relentlessly searched for members to start a band but to no avail. His frustration began to emerge musically as Out Of Body; a heavy posthardcore project that meshed the NYC influenced noise of Quicksand and Helmet with the psychedelic swirl of Smashing Pumpkins. His 2015 self released online EP "Evaporate" found Robinson performing all instruments and vocals with a session drummer. The music caught the attention of guitarist and vintage rock gear collector Landon Lewis, the two instantly forged and scooped up musicians to bring the Out Of Body sound to life. The band is now unleashing their full-length debut "Voiceless," a tasteful and modern blend of '90s space rock and alternative metal featuring10 riff-solid dynamic songs filled with mosh grooves, synth drenched atmospheres, melodic harmonies and soaring solos. Out Of Body play alternative rock in today's framework and this debut grows addictively refreshing with every listen. (Cointoss Records #16)

G.L.O.S.S. - Girls Living Outside Society's Shit 7"
European pressing - limited quantity. Vinyl pressing following two initial cassette runs of the stellar debut from this Olympia powerhouse. Five perfect hardcore rippers pressed into the surface of the record for hours of your enjoyment. (Sabotage Records #104.5)

G.L.O.S.S. - Trans Day of Revenge 7"
European pressing - limited quantity. G.L.O.S.S. is still really mad, about shit that really matters. In Trans Day of Revenge, they tear down pacifism in the face of state violence, transmisogyny, and respectability politics, all in five tracks that will leave your heart pounding with joy and rage. This is for all the trans punks wanting more, six minutes that allows us to envision an alternate future and "weaponize our alienation." Searing riffs, raw vocals, d-beats. (Sabotage Records #105.5)

LOW CULTURE - Places To Hide LP
For those unfamiliar, Low Culture features members of Shang-A-Lang and Marked Men, and could be described as splitting the sonic difference between the 2. Scrappy, melodic, and somtimes jangly garagepunk that is fast, catchy, and high-energy -as-hell, but also maintains a thoughtful vibe throughout. Since releasing their debut LP, Screens, which quickly sold out and was generally well-received by just about everyone, a lot of has been going on in Low Culture's world. 3/4ths of the band has relocated from Las Cruces, NM to Portland, OR, with the 4/4th soon to follow. They've released 7"s on Dirtnap, Dead Broke, and La-Ti-Da Records. They found a new bass player in Chicago transplant Jay Castaldi (MOTO, Lynyrd's Innards, more). _ of the band has helped form killer local hardcore band Macho Boys. Singer/Guitarist Chris Mason has released tons of essential records on his great (and easy to confuse with Dirtnap!) Dirt Cult Records label. They've done some touring, including high profile shows like the Dirtnap Records Anniversary, Awesome Fest, Ottawa Explosion, and more. Just livin' the life, ya know? (Sabotage Records #90)

PIG//CONTROL - Vor den Mauern LP
The final slab: Like the 7_ predecessor "Trauma" recorded and mixed at 16 Ohm Studio in Glasgow, "Vor den Mauern" compiles PIG//CONTROL's latter days' output of wall-crushing, noise-drenched, teeth-clenching hardcore punk. Lyrics circling the bleak realities of Fortress Europe, exclusion tactics, and life in the post-everything age drive the 6 songs, ranging from all-out high speed mania to psych-sided heavy stomp. (Sabotage Records #89)

SUICIDAS - Los Primeros LP
This LP contains their sold out EPs! Somewhere in between Canadas BAYONETTES and ASSASINATORS from Denmark, SUICIDAS deliver a Punkrock onslaught wrapped up in melody, spitting out catchy tunes. Kinda sounds like nodding to ULTIMO RESORTE covering HUSKER DU. SUICIDAS involves the voice of RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA and shares or shared members with DEMENZIA KOLEKTIVA, BELGRADO, DESTINO FINAL and a bunch of others. Driving fast forward Punkrock from somewhere between Barcelona and Vienna. (Sabotage Records #72)

DIVERS - Hello Hello LP
Divers is a band from Portland, OR. They are Harrison Rapp (guitar and vocals), Seth Rapp (guitar), James Deegan (bass), and Colby Hulsey (drums). The band describes themselves like so: "We play dynamic, sweaty music. The indie rockers say we are a punk band. The punk rockers are suspicious that we might be an indie band. The bands that have inspired us fall on both sides of the fence, but they all share the same kind of energy. If we have any clear idea about what we are doing, it has something to do with that energy." Hello Hello is about a couple of bank robbers driving across North America, doing what they do. There may be something dark going on just beneath the surface of this album, but it doesn't stop it from being chock full of good time summer anthems. (Sabotage Records #77)

ANDY THE BAND - Carry On 7"
Andy The Band is the solo project by Andy Dahlström from Terrible Feelings, Sista Sekunden & Satanic Surfers. The music is more straight forward rock than the other bands, but with clear punk roots and attitude, something that a punk can't wash off. The attitude and the energy translates through the poppy melodies. All instruments are played by Andy and produced by him and Tommy from Vånna Inget and True Moon. The body of the songs mainly happened in the studio where both Tommy and Andy wanted to keep the spirit of first-takes and skip the cheating with overdubs and editing. After a few shows in Sweden, opening for Hurula and True Moon, ATB is going to Japan to support Vånna Inget on their entire tour. Some people think it's gonna be just like when The Hives opened for The International Noise Conspiracy on tour, and eventually ended up switching places, but that's up to time to decide. During the summer ATB will record 10-12 songs for a debut LP. (Sabotage Records #103)

THE GUESTS - Red Scare 2015 Demo tape cassette
The Guests formed in 2015 when it was decided that the far-left needed a suitable media platform. The project had to be engaging, drawing the people to its message, but dark, reflecting the dismal current state of history. A pop band, drawing on post-punk and goth, was decided as the medium, built on the obscure memory of a one-off New Order cover band performance that Philadelphia residents Christian Vogan (vocals) and Alkis Meimaris (guitar) had done while at school together in New York state. The lineup was rounded out by brothers Hart and Kyle Seely (also of Sheer Mag) on bass and drums respectively, as well as synth player Florence Lin. Together, the Guests envision an alternate, more revolutionary history of 80s-style jangle pop, built on the rock-solid foundation of the Seely brothers' groove section. Focused guitar hooks and soaring rushes of synth, provided by Meimaris and Lin respectively, interlock atop this, giving breath and motion to Vogan's calls to arms, battered landscapes and righteous indignations. (Sabotage Records #73 TP)

MACHO BOYS - Toughest Band In Hardcore tape cassette
Short and sweet today, punks: MACHO BOYS are from Portland. MACHO BOYS rule hard. MACHO BOYS are important. MACHO BOYS are not what you think. MACHO BOYS are doing it right. I want to be on the MACHO BOYS team. MACHO BOYS. TOUGHEST BAND IN HARDCORE. (Sabotage Records #92 TP)

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! (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)

(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

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)
