Descriptions for the newest releases available this week.

Descriptions for 4/22/17

ROHT - s/t 7" (with download)
Stomping isolationist noise punk with a raging undercurrent of industry and primitivism from Reykjavik. This new ep, their first, shows a much noisier and angrier side of what was once an industrial solo project. All sung in Icelandic. Along with Dauoyflin, these folks are fostering a cold hardcore outsider vibe in a place that has had a rich tradition of punk/pop that's not widely known for it. A truly exciting discovery. Never under estimate the remote reaches of our community, you'll be zapped every time. 500 copies of heavy duty lacquer mastered black vinyl and glued pocket sleeve with art by Porir Georg sit inside a hand embossed sealed envelope. A pure record. (Iron Lung Records #89)

MOZART - Nasty 7" (with download)
A wild, petulant, anti-social mess of an ep. 'Zart's signature brand of noisy hardcore punk brings to mind an angrier TEDDY & THE FRAT GIRLS or a more female, more unhinged URINALS with that same energy/approach that the 80's Italian HC scene had. That barbed wire fire burns bright here. This shit is just plain crazy. And we love it! Six songs of raw dynamite on excellent hand stamped black vinyl each housed in a hand-painted jacket. All 100% unique. A pure record. (Iron Lung Records #92)

BEHAVIOR - Bitter Bitter LP (with download)
'Bitter Bitter' was written and recorded in Los Angeles early last fall, just before the latest drought broke, and just before a cynical national election made the ongoing arrangement very plain. It's a simple music, crafted according to a shifting ad hoc agreement between three friends who try and share the labor, who borrow promiscuously from whatever finds them, who try and garner enough space to intuit a next stumbling move in restless hopscotch across a pop music tradition that has tallied an unlivable inheritance of promises. There's a desire for tension, a desire for fraudulent postures, a desire for drama and its perverse digressions. The song is traversed by other songs, the voice is traversed by other voices, the singer never held the title to their own tongue-nosing uninvited into darkened houses for what's ripe and fermenting. The title of the record is a translation of the name given to the ocean on a Babylonian map thought to be the oldest depiction of the world. The cover is a mask of swatches. A shroud of ribbons. Bitter Bitter is an imprint and an agitation, wrapped like a circus in an exterminator's tent. Countless fluttering images hoisted like flags above countless shrinking islands in a rising sea. Contempt, mercy, grief and good will. Is it a timely attitude? (Iron Lung Records #93)

COLD SWEAT - Blinded LP (with download)
Remastered. Hugely influential and genre defining trashy hardcore punk from these Washington weirdos. With influences like Gauze, No Comment, Coltrane, Sabbath and Siege as a starting point, Cold Sweat set out to write the ultimate truth. And so they did. "Blinded" is a taut, 20 minute wire ready to snap, whip and scar. Stand clear. Better yet, stand in the way and feel what you have been missing since it's posthumous release in 2004. Newly remastered in 2017 to sound as the band originally intended and housed in a heavy duty tip-on sleeve to last the ages. 12 songs of pure hardcore. (Iron Lung Records #95)

BAD BREEDING - Divide LP (with download)
Bad Breeding from Stevenage return with their second LP in less than a year. In that time the world has become a melting pot of hate, absurdity and on the brink of destruction and Bad Breeding have made a record that sums up these dark, dense and claustrophobic times. Once again the relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics. Standouts include The More the Merrier - which sounds like prime Icons of Filth from 1985 whilst last track Endless Impossibility is a five-minute-plus dirge that hits hard like Killing Joke but with more noise and chaos. On Divide Bad Breeding have upped the intensity and made an even stronger album. Rather than being self-released, they have now joined La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Iron Lung in the States. (Iron Lung Records #104)

RAKTA - Rakta At KEXP tape cassette
During the epic U.S. leg of the tour they did in 2016 promoting the 'III' album they stopped in at Seattle's KEXP to record a live radio set. It came out phenomenally so, with the cooperation with the station executives, we put it on a cassette for you to enjoy. Pro printed and masterized to perfection. Limited to 200 copies. (Iron Lung Records #106)

HOLOCAUSTO - War Metal Massacre LP
It is extremely rare that a band is able to recapture a sound that it first established over thirty years ago but then lost in the process of its evolution on later recordings. With its original lineup in the mid-1980s, Holocausto was instrumental in the development of the unique strain of black metal that emerged from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil at that time. Known as the original "deathcore" to the most seasoned veterans of that scene and those who have come to understand it from a historical perspective, this variety of metal shares nothing in common with the abomination that the term has come to more typically represent in the present day. Instead, it is the savage brand of black metal, primarily popularized by the infamous Sarcofago, which repeatedly pushes itself to the brink of total musical disintegration before somehow managing to resist its own self-annihilation. Now, three decades after the release of the essential "Warfare Noise" compilation, on which the band contributed two of its earliest songs, Holocausto triumphantly returns to its earlier pioneering sound with its original lineup. The first three songs, which comprise Side A of the LP version, are re-recordings of the "Massacre" demo track from 1985 and the two tracks first committed to tape on the "Warfare Noise" compilation from 1986. Even more importantly, the three new songs on the album confirm Holocausto's ability to have recaptured its original, feral songwriting capacity. (Nuclear War Now #324)

EASY MONEY - Collection LP
Nestled in Victoria BC, Canada a lonely mod-revival/powerpop band cut two great singles on a local record store's imprint and then faded off into obscurity. Luckily we were able to dig into the archives of this bands tape demos and find a plethora of incredibly strong demos in excellent quality. Easy Money Signed to Quintessence Records (home of Modernettes, DOA, Young Canadians, Pointed Sticks) just as the label folded were stuck with no distribution or attention anywhere but locally. They would not have been the oddball choice for inclusion on the label had things been different. The tracks compiled here with both singles released present a KILLER archive of Northwest Rock n Roll during the New Wave heyday. Think Pointed Sticks, The Heats, early Cheap Trick and hell even some of the later Kidda Band stuff when they get going. Solid stuff. (Neon Taste Records #1.EM)

CULTURE SHOCK - s/t LP
Urban life promises many rewards-lies that foster complacency and addiction. In the cities where these hotbeds fester, we observe in real time how societies fail. After a period of crisis, horrifying acts are normalized. Drugs become one's identity, hype is power, ego is abuse. For the lone wolves and free thinkers disgusted by the mainstream echo chamber, they scorn the idea of getting along with self-proclaimed role models and their bland, conventional "fun." CULTURE SHOCK is a fist in the teeth of the Good Life, with an outrageous vendetta to take out the entitled parasites ruining the world. CULTURE SHOCK's debut is an unapologetic and relentless pummel of US hardcore. Each of these 10 anthems delivers a feral intensity that we've come to expect from the Denver scene. Recorded on analog tape in Denver, Colorado and mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, maniacal vocalist Geoff D. sums it up it best when he proclaims "The Pack is small, but the bite is hard!" (Youth Attack Records #96)

NIGHTSTICK - Blotter LP
SIEGE drummer Robert R. Williams powers this sonic trip through some extremely heavy territory. Pink Floyd meets Flipper under a collapsing bridge, Lydia Lunch meets the Brainbombs and they take acid together, Black Sabbath meets Funkadelic while Kilslug throws empty beer bottles at them both. I file this in my collection in the "fucked up music" category, alongside Flipper, Brainbombs, Kilslug, Drunks With Guns. If SIEGE's Grim Reaper was ever to be completely extended to band status, this is it. You will either be on board for this trip, or you will not be. We are definitely on the boat. (Armageddon Shop Records #3)

MAGIC CIRCLE - s/t tape cassette
Now on cassette. Recorded in 2011 at the infamous Paincave in Massachusetts and mastered by Carl Saff who did the recent ELDER 12" we released in 2012. Drawing from classic NWOBHM and traditional metal influences, this five piece comprised of veteran local musicians (Mind Eraser, Rival Mob, Doomriders, etc) have turned out a well crafted solid as hell metal album. They've definitely done their listening homework over the years. Strong and catchy songs, heavy but not tuned down, recorded well but not overproduced, it captures the old DIY ethic of metal in the early 80's. The vocals have an almost Ozzy quality at times, solid as hell. We're totally stoked on this record! (Armageddon Shop #2)

CROOKED BANGS - II LP
CROOKED BANGS are from Austin, and are proud purveyors of a distinct musical form of the freakiness for which that city is so well-noted. Crooked Bangs could be described as dark punk noir, in the sense that the guitar lines are brooding and the lyrics are sung in in a smoky French/English hybrid style - but the energy and overall vibe delve deep into the a distinctive sonic playing field and atmosphere akin to early Sub Pop singles club releases. Samantha (guitarist) also has a distinct guitar style that is reminiscent of the more-innovative second-wave Crass Records bands such as Rudimentary Peni, 90's heavy-but-melodic noise rock like Babes In Toyland, and the noisier side of UK82 HC, while remaining resolutely modern and compatible with the dark garage sounds from Goner Records' stalwarts such as Lost Sounds. (Nervous Intent Records #5)

STREET EATERS - The Envoy LP
STREET EATERS are a truewave/punk band from Berkeley+Oakland, CA that has drawn a range of sonic comparisons to bands from The Ex to Masshysteri, Autoclave to Drive Like Jehu, Wipers to Burning Kitchen to KARP. After years of relentless international touring on the heels of their well-received album "Blood::Muscles::Bones" (released on Nervous Intent in the U.S./Contraszt! in Europe), the band dove deeply into their recording studio to create a new record with an expansive new vision - "The Envoy" is a concept album based on dystopian sci-fi powerhouse author Ursula K. LeGuin's books "The Dispossessed" and "Left Hand of Darkness". The songs are interspersed with instrumental interludes layering field recordings, planetary oscillations, comets, glaciers cracking, sea lions using tonal underwater sonar, a modded kids' karaoke box, heavily processed/delayed/bowed bass guitar, and more. Songs are at the heart of the album and keep the momentum and energy of the album high. The album's cover art is by Miriam Stahl, best-selling illustrator of the "Rad American Women A-Z" and "Rad Women Worldwide" books. (Nervous Intent Records #6)

HAXXAN - Loch Ness Rising LP
Although "new" in name, HAXXAN features underground legend Killjoy DeSade (Necrophagia, The Ravenous, Wurdulak, et. al.) on vocals and synth. Formed in 2011 by Killjoy and guitarist Shawn Slusarek, the duo decided to write material that had an old-school black metal vibe, citing such influences as Beherit, Archgoat, and Blasphemy with hints of Candlemass and Mercyful Fate. The duo then added bassist Jake Arnette and drummer Serge Streltsov, and soon recorded their debut album, Loch Ness Rising. Spread over 10 tracks, HAXXAN's Loch Ness Rising is conceptually based on Aleister Crowley, as Killjoy has been a life-long Crowley enthusiast. As a full-band unit, HAXXAN soon celebrate the life, works, and magick of Crowley through patiently unfolding vistas of doom and dread, eerieness and unease. Recorded at Thelema Studios and mixed/mastered by Grzegorz Kulawiak at Sin Mix Studios, Loch Ness Rising richly resonates with a pure (and purely eerie/uneasy) tone that lends these songs a unique character: undoubtedly heavy in a manner not unlike To Mega Therion-era Celtic Frost, there's likewise a ghostly aspect to its conversely crushing stomp. As expected, Killjoy delivers a peerless performance, stretching all extremes of his twisted 'n' tortured throat, almost narrating the slowly enveloping fog of unearthly horror. Taken together, Loch Ness Rising is an experience both atmospheric and caustic, bleeding black blood and drinking it from a ceremonial cup - just as Crowley would've wanted it. (Hell's Headbangers #198)

WITCHTRAP - No Anesthesia LP
2017 pressing of the long sold out LP version originally release in 2007 by Hells Headbangers. "No Anesthesia" both began WITCHTRAP's relationship with the label and soon became a fan favorite. Although still firmly within the blackthrash idiom whose resurgence they helped contribute, No Anesthesia saw the Colombian power-trio emphasize the traditional heavy metal aspects of their usually frantic 'n' furious sound. What results is a push-and-pull between merciless mania and headbanging heaven - but of course, no matter what the attack, with EVIL always at the forefront. And compared to their cult Sorceress Bitch debut, on No Anesthesia, WITCHTRAP upped the production values most respectably. So don't be a wimp - choose to go with No Anesthesia! (Hell's Headbangers #17)

TIGER JUNKIES - Green Tea Or Die 7" (green vinyl)
Originally released in 2013 on a very limited-edition picture disc, Green Tea or Die was TIGER JUNKIES' first full recording since their 2008 debut album, D-beat Street Rock n Rollers, which HELLS HEADBANGERS reissued on CD and vinyl LP in 2013 along with a couple split-release tracks. As is well known by now, TIGER JUNKIES is the unholy team-up between Toxic Holocaust mainman Joel Grind and Abigail/Barbatos mainman Yasuyuki Suzuki. Still deadly committed to the timeless trinity of booze, sex, and nuclear metalpunk, here on Green Tea or Die, the duo lays bare their base obsessions: "Raw Sex Till Sperm," "Satanik Metal Punks," "Sex Sex Sex Pt2," and of course the title track, "Green Tie or Die." It's all the filthy, endlessly headbanging fun of their earlier work, just swiftly bashed forward across a four-song EP - it's Green Tea or Die! (Hell's Headbangers EP #83)

SCUMRIPPER - s/t 7" (colored vinyl)
Self-released digitally late last year, Scumripper is the nasty, sewage-drenched debut offering from this trio of vocalist/guitarist Rat Pitt, drummer Son Stalker, and bassist Cliff Hunger. With an MO like that, it's no surprise that SCUMRIPPER charge forward with a short 'n' swift attack of grinding metalpunk rooted in the likes of Repulsion, The Mentors, Abscess, and Autopsy's punkest moments. It's violent and vile, but also immediately memorable and mandatorily headbanging. A cursory reading of some of Scumripper's song titles - "Shit Needle Crown," "Cum Killa," "Run to the Pills," and especially "Gutter Heights" - should soundly spell out exactly where these three miscreants are coming from. Take a quick trip through the gutter with SCUMRIPPER, and await their forthcoming debut album from HELLS HEADBANGERS! (Hell's Headbangers EP #87)

BLOOD FEAST - The Future State Of Wicked LP (gatefold)
At long last, BLOOD FEAST is reborn into the metal underground with their highly anticipated third full-length album, The Future State Of Wicked, set to be released by longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS. Fans old and new will not be disappointed, as the "holy trinity" of releases from the band's early days - Kill For Pleasure (1987), the Face Fate EP (1988) and Chopping Block Blues (1990) - inform much of the new album. All the speed, brutality, and twists 'n' turns BLOOD FEAST is known for are intact and in your face (nine of the 10 songs being written by original guitarist Adam Tranquilli), yet updated with modern production. Joining Adam are vocalist Chris Natalini and bassist Tom Lorenzo, along with some new blood in Joe Moore (drums) and CJ Scioscia (guitar). BLOOD FEAST was formed by Adam Tranquilli, Gary Markowich (vocals), Kevin Kuzma (drums), and Lou Starita (bass) in 1985 as Blood Lust. They quickly wrote and recorded their classic four-song demo, The Suicidal Missions. Shortly after, they became a five-piece with the addition of Michael Basden on guitar. The band was then approached by New Renaissance Records to contribute songs to their Thrash Metal Attack ("Menacing Thunder") and Speed Metal Hell 3 ("The Suicidal Missions"). This prompted the name change to BLOOD FEAST. New Renaissance then offered a record deal, which led to the recording of the classic Kill For Pleasure album and a US tour with Death Angel. The Face Fate EP quickly followed. (Hell's Headbangers M #195)

BESTIAL WARLUST - Blood And Valour CD (Deluxe DIGIPAK CD)
Pressed on a GOLD disc in a deluxe fold-out inverted cross digipak! Added as a bonus track on this long-overdue reissue is the studio cover of BATHORY's "Massacre" previously only heard by close contacts of the band. At long last, a timeless classic returns: BESTIAL WARLUST's pivotal second album, Blood & Valour, now seeing release on digipack through HELLS HEADBANGERS! Originally released in 1995, Blood & Valour was the crucial follow-up to the Aussie barbarians' legendary debut album, Vengeance War 'Til Death. That debut almost singlehandedly started war metal, but it was with Blood & Valour where BESTIAL WARLUST confirmed that their "Satanic war metal" was truly a viable, lawless outback all its own and that their over-the-top violent savagery was no mere fluke. The lineup may have shifted, but the iron fist remained bloody: Blood & Valour more than lived up to its title, then and especially now. Added as a bonus track on this long-overdue reissue is the studio cover of BATHORY's "Massacre" previously only heard by close contacts of the band. SATANIC WAR METAL...BESTIAL fucking WARLUST!!! (Hell's Headbangers Records #168)

INSTED - Proud Youth 1986 to 1991 LPx2
In their five-year existence, Insted toured the States several times and developed a huge local following at home in Orange County, CA. They were one of the most prominent straight-edge bands of the late-'80s scene, playing old-school hardcore with an ultra-positive message. This retrospective is packed to capacity with every song the band ever recorded, 45 tracks in all. Now available again on colored vinyl with a gatefold cover and one additional track. Vinyl version includes digital download of the entire album as well as a 30-minute video documentary about the band and a 30-minute video of their entire set filmed at the Showcase Theater from one of their reunion shows in 2004.

BLESSED - s/t LP
Blessed The Vancouver based punk band's debut is filled with knotted riffs and crushing dynamics, as evident on lead single, "Waving Hand,". Skittering between loud and soft moments of jagged post-punk, the song's anthemic hook is dark and creepy with an infectious melody. The song's structure takes twists and turns from start to finish, with primal chord progressions pushed by complex rhythmic patterns. Play it over and over again, there's something new to discover with each listen. Recorded by Curtis Buckle of Rain City Recorders (White Lung, Japandroids, Baptists), Blessed are next in the long line of great Canadian art punk. This is on very nice one sided etched vinyl. "Blessed's sound is weird, noisy and harsh, drawing from surf, rock and post-punk in equal measure. It's if Radiohead decided to go back to playing guitars and singing actual words with a Siouxsie and the Banshees twist. It's creepy, but cool, in a way that will make you feel creepy and cool, too." (Cointoss Records #9)

THIS IS HELL - Bastards Still Remain 7" vAfter the surprise release of This is Hell's new album "Bastards Still Remain" exclusively through their bandcamp, the band has teamed up with Coin Toss Records to release the album on 7" vinyl.

EDGEWISE - Angels and Addicts 7"
Cointoss Records is proud to announce our newest EP, Angels and Addicts, from PA hardcore legends Edgewise. 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 and 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 and 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 and Addicts brings a unique sound that any hardcore or metal fan should check out. (Cointoss Records #13)

MAD PARADE - Gangsters 7"
Limited pressing of 500 copies (300 for retail outlets) available on red or gold vinyl. If there was ever a hall of fame for unsung punk rock heroes, Mad Parade would be the first inductee. Since 1982 this SoCal staple has been crafting some of the catchiest punk rock anthems of all time. They forged a style of punk rock that would go on to influence countless bands. These new songs keep up the tradition of "can't get them out of your head" punk anthems. Bands this good are few and far between and seldom stick around for very long. Relish the fact that in a world full of turmoil we still have a Mad Parade to lift our spirits! Record Store Day 2017 release. (Gutterwail Records #5)

(restock) MIDNIGHT - Satanic Royalty LP (with poster and colored vinyl)
Black heavy metal is the law, and MIDNIGHT subjugate all subjects with their highly anticipated debut album after nearly a decade of EPs and splits. "Satanic Royalty" is both a distillation of first-wave black metal magick and an extension into harder-rocking territories rampant with lust, filth, and sleaze. The name MIDNIGHT has been a cult one for years now, but here they prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt - bow down before their "Satanic Royalty"! Recommended for diehards of MIDNIGHT, MIDNIGHT, and MIDNIGHT: there is only MIDNIGHT! (Hell's Headbangers Records #64)

(restock) FASHIONISM - Back in the Day 7"
Hot on the heels of the Dirt Cult single 'Subculture Suicide' comes Fashionism's 4th single. Hints of Clash, Teenage Head and sped up Mod Revival. It's the kind of powerpop that made 1979 such a good year for records. Included here are songs that lament the old guard that always want to talk about how things were and an erotic ode to coffee we think? Whatever the persuasion it's a banger of a single and definitely the strongest of their output thus far. (Neon Taste Records #1)

Descriptions for 4/15/17

EXIT ORDER - Seed of Hysteria LP
Following a fantastic demo in 2013 and a flawless 7" EP in 2015 Boston's Exit Order finally grace us with a long waiting debut 12". Seed Of Hysteria is made up out of 10 perfect hardcore punk songs. With one boot firmly stuck on the Bristol punk sound of the golden era and with nods to early USA Hardcore and prime UK Peace-Punk Seed Of Hysteria is an all out sonic assault. Using the best elements of the last 30 years of international hardcore punk and turning them into short sharp bursts of energy. Heavy on the guitar chorus and with a extremely sharp vocal deliverance reminding at times of No Side era Comes the record flows with urgency and aggression. You'll have to dig hard to find a punk record as tough and tight as Seeds Of Hysteria. (Side Two Records #11)

ANARQUIA VERTICAL - Sistema Total de Liberacion LP
ANARQUIA VERTICAL's Sistema Total de Liberación aims to be the handbook of the ultranihilist revolution to come: think about Eskorbuto's "anti-todo" motto becoming not just an slogan but a full gospel in the hands of five suited-up punks. The A-side contains 10 tracks of raw 80's hardcore in the vein of Spanish and Italian traditions; think about Anti-Dogmatikss and Eskoria-Tza in one hand and Indigesti, Negazione or CCM in the other, plus some NYHC circa '82 like The Mad, Kraut and Heart Attack, some Deep Wound and tons of Void. The B-side contains a remix of all the tracks of the A-side in the form of a couple of dark electronic tracks courtesy of Hagal, of Destino Final's fame. Sistema Total de Liberación comes housed in a sleeve designed by the last great living artist, Oriol Roca who manages to capture the contents of the record flawlessly with a full colour sleeve and insert. Includes download code. (La Vida Es Un Mus #142)

NO DEFENCES - Released LP
Recorded in 1984 for Crass Records but never released, Demo Tapes do the decent thing and release this five track lost album by five piece South London band No Defences. The album was recorded at Southern Studios with Pete Wright producing , but it was never completed. This album has been painstakingly put together and remastered from tapes taken from the studio at the time. Their sound was anything but anarcho punk - it had a strong tribal element in the rhythm section, post punk flourishes in the guitar work and lyrics that were poetic, individual and radical. The songs were often long with multiple timing changes but always with an intensity and passion. No Defences played gigs with everyone at the time from Crass to Flux of Pink Indians to Crucifix and toured with Chumbawamba and Reality Control but sounding like none of these bands. No Defences were a special band and after years and years of trying to release this album, Demo Tapes are proud to release 'Released' 33 years after it was recorded. It comes with a full size full colour booklet with photos, lyrics, archive and a full list of every gig No Defences played. (La Vida Es Un Mus/Demo Tapes #8)

RINA - Demo 7"
Rina from Mexico City play that brand of punk you can only make when you live in a third world country surrounded by people who expect you to shut up and continue living a meaningless life. This record is a celebration of the anger and hate small people feel. The same people that make things happen but are neglected and forgotten. These three chavas and one güey managed to make a record with all the characteristics that define Latinamerican hardcore punk; honesty and that unique sound where urgency and heart are above the lack of resources and any technical shit. (La Vida Es Un Mus/Cintas Pepe #9)

PISS TEST - 2nd LP
Think about the angrier side of early Texas or SoCal punk, with a dose of the Great Pacific Northwest (where bands can't help but sound a little bit like The Wipers). PISS TEST have also had several comparisons to Proletariat, which they weren't really going for, but don't complain about. Ex-members of Red Dons, Scott Baio Army, and Soda Pop Kids. Current members of Macho Boys. (Dirt Cult Records #103)

MASSGRAVE - The Absurdity Of Humanity LP
After a massive delay at the pressing plant , the new MASSGRAVE LP is finally available. Vancouver's MASSGRAVE have been churning out top notch crust grind for 15 years now. While most bands fizzle out by now, MASSGRAVE just turn it up a notch. This is their best, fastest , and most pissed brutal work up to date. Track after track there's this mounting disgust and hatred that never feels like it gets extinguished. Comes with a full printed inner sleeve with lyrics and a HUGE fold out poster. (Haunted Hotel Records #89)

CORPSE/TWO FINGERED APPROACH - split LP
Raw 1982-3 UK punk split from two Cheshire bands, with CORPSE the younger/more rough-around-the-edges apprentices. TWO FINGERED APPROACH issued one 7" EP in 1982, a limited pressing of 500 that featured three fast, raw and angry melodic punk songs. Fitting in with the underground DIY punk scene of 1980-2 as typified by SIX MINUTE WAR, THE SINYX and EPILEPTICS, the EP sold out quickly and is reproduced here with four unreleased demo tracks recorded the same year. Eschewing the more hardcore edge of the EP cuts, these tracks are more insistent, mid-tempo, with lyrics of an anarcho theme over fuzzed-out guitars and plaintive vocals. The CORPSE tracks are culled from their 1983 demo, first time on vinyl apart from "America Out" which appeared on Mortarhate's We Won't Be Your Fucking Poor comp. A raw mix of anarcho and vintage UK '82 visceral punk, straight out of the rehearsal room and sometimes falling over itself to get the message across (as Terminal Escape blogspot said: '..at times Corpse are gloriously off'). "Crap and Apathy" sums up perfectly the stultifying boredom of 1980s provincial Britain (moaning, fighting and the pub), the remainder cover the lyrical concerns of their day (Ireland, nukes, El Salvador). Primitive, primeval and angry raw punk, remastered from original cassettes. 13 tracks in total. 12" vinyl pressing housed in thick 350gsm sleeve, 4 page insert and poly bag with sticker. Includes Download Code. (Inflammable Material Records #24)

SACCAGE/HELLACAUST - split 7"
Finally available on vinyl! Previously a cassette only release: Two of Canada's darkest of frozen death thrashers share a chilled platter of blasphemous speed together: Quebec's SACCAGE and Nova Scotia's HELLACAUST! Fresh off of the recent Vorace 7"EP- SACCAGE continues their exploration into rapid fire metal constructing two new tracks loaded with ammunition read-to-fire! Honing their necrotic black thrash sound for over sixteen sweet years of sadism HELLACAUST (members of NAPALM RAID and DBC) offer one updated recording of a track off of their 2001 demo and a brand new burning blaster for for these barbaric new times we live in! Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl. (Torture Garden Picture Company #82)

HARDA UT - s/t LP
Limited to 300 copies on black vinyl. HARDA UT is a fourpiece band from Gothenburg, Sweden who formed in late 2015. HARDA UT play a scathing and vicious style of female fronted noise damaged hardcore/punk. Musically, HARDA UT can be loosely compared to bands such as Wart Hog, Pregnancy Scares, Crazy Spirit, and other-like minded bands. (Adagio 830 Records #151)

ULTHA - Converging Sins LPx2/CD
ULTHA's second full-length album 'CONVERGING SINS' is a 63 minute rumination on the subject matter of how past events and wrong decisions will echo throughout the rest of our mortal existance.Over years experiences of failure and the conscious ability to willingly commit mistakes, to hurt, to reject,to alternate truths etc. lead to a path where silence in and around you is the ultimate repercussion. Therecord is a testimony to everyday melancholia, inner solitude and the human struggle to lead the wrong life in the right, the struggle against your animalistic nature. On their second album ULTHA further their trademark sound of fast, hypnotic, reverberant Black Metal in a more US traditon played by acts such as Ash Borer, Weakling, Leviathan and Wolves In The ThroneRoom. It is combined with crushing Doom heaviness close to acts such as Lycus, Asunder and Forn while also blending in an overall hopeless and gloomy atmosphere mostly connected to Dark Wave bands suchas The Sisters Of Mercy and (early) The Cure. The 2016 EP 'DISMAL RUINS' already showed the path ULTHA follow, adding multiple layers of electronics and slower passages in focus on overall diversive,captivating songstructures in mix with their juggernaut sound. The five songs reach lengths up to almost 20minutes while still balancing repetition and settle nuances in riffs to manifest melodies like echoes in the listeners head. And this is a thing ULTHA were good at right from the start: Writing real songs with tons of melody without lacking heaviness and urging intensity. The focus is always on the overall flow and feel of the record. Therefore the music, the metaphorical, cryptic lyrics by main songwriter R.Schmidt as well as the artwork (envisioned by Kevin Gan Yuen of SutekhHexen fame) need to be treated as a whole entity. The songs we're once again recorded and mixed in the bands rehearsal space called 'The Oil Pit' by thebands own Andy Rosczyk in Cologne (Germany). Mastering duties this time were taken by Jack Shirley at his Atomic Garden studio (California), where he already formed the massive sound of bands such as Lycus, Oathbreaker and Deafheaven. On track No.2 'Mirrors In A Black Room' the band could win British native currently residing in Berlin (Germany), Rachel Davies of the acclaimed post-punk/wave band Esben And The Witch for guest vocals. But she not only sang but also co-wrote the lyrics to the song. (Vendetta Records #120)

(restock) FANNY KAPLAN - s/t LP
Female trio formed in Moscow during 2012. The follow-up to last year's limited 'Plastilin' LP, this new 6-track MLP of spikey 2-3 minute songs is a post-punk/no wave/ kraut rock mix, all underpinned with a punk urgency. Killer basslines that range from REMA-REMA style brutalism to a throbbing PiL/Metal Box-era JAH WOBBLE metronome with unorthodox drumming, topped off with bitter melodies and arcane, otherworldly synth lines. Self-confessed post-riot grrls in attitude rather than musical style, darkly subversive, simultaneously bleak and uplifting. Think MALARIA/ESG Records/PiL/BUTTHOLE SURFERS. 300 pressed. (Inflammable Material #25)

(restock) CEMETERY - Wind And Shadows LP (import version)
U.K. pressing of 300 copies on 180gram vinyl, with gloss insert + flyer. 9 tracks from Chicago deathrock/Goth punks that follows their Demo LP/cassette, totalling over 40 minutes of music. Driving, powerful and anchored in a heavy bass/drum backbeat, a CHAMELEONS cover hints at one obvious influence alongside the usual staples, but Cemetery are rooted in raw/peace punk basement shows and aren't afraid to mix it up with the occasional atmospheric/creepy ambient interlude or anthemic, pounding post-punk dancebeat to penetrate the gloom. Massive-sounding goth-punk ala CHRISTIAN DEATH/KILLING JOKE/TSOL that fits in well with the current wave of bands like ARCTIC FLOWERS, SPECTRES and CRIMSON SCARLET. (Inflammable Material #20)

(restock) PERMACULTURE - They Advance 7"
Second EP from Ryan (Social Cirkle, Confines) and Jen (Nuclear Family, Nervous Trend). 4 new tracks that build on the peace-punk/'Penis Envy' vibe of the debut record whilst adding some post-punk touches and a more hardcore edge in places. An updated version of vintage CRASS/DIRT/A.P.P.L.E. 475 copies on 70 gram vinyl with black dust sleeves. (Inflammable Material #18)

Descriptions for 4/8/17

DEMONCY - Faustian Dawn LP
Beyond simply serving to present black metal to a new audience, Demoncy's legacy also includes being one of the most influential bands in this style. Over the years, countless bands have attempted to mimic their sound, but none has managed to meet, let alone surpass, the sinisterly dark aura that envelopes their music. "Faustian Dawn," Demoncy's first album from 1993, is an artifact in the band's early discography that perhaps best demonstrates their influence on the black metal landscape that later evolved. Featuring remixed and remastered audio at the hand of Ixithra himself, a reinterpretation of the Damnation CD cover art by the incomparable Chris Moyen as well as the original self-released cassette drawing from the same artist, this latest version is certain to please both old and new Demoncy fans alike. (Nuclear War Now #327)

URANIUM CLUB - Who Made The Man? 7"
Uranium Club return with a brand new single. "Who Made the Man?" is like a gang of aliens landing on planet earth, finding an extensive back catalogue of Wire and Devo and deciding they want to form a band. The track builds and builds with peaks, odd noises, different parts that come out of nowhere and an instant vocal. It's five minutes plus because there are so many ideas in one song.This 7" features an alternate take of Who Made the Man? and an exclusive b side Small Fry. Comes in a risographed fold-over sleeve. (Static Shock Records #43)

IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO - La Vita Silenziosa 7"
Debut 7" EP from this new hardcore band based in Berlin, but with members from Italy, Mallorca and Australia (including people from DIAT and ORDEN MUNDIAL). IDIOTA CIVILIZZATO are here with the answer to the little asked question "What would Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers be like if they grew up in the American midwest?". Hardcore punk being played because it's all that they know how to do and sounding like their lives depend on it. (Static Shock Records #44)

VIOLENT PARTY - Sinusoidal Limitations 7"
VIOLENT PARTY of Portland, OR have taken their noisy entourage to outer space on this latest single 'Sinusoidal Limitations'. The record features two brand new blistering tracks (Oncogene / Earth Spins Again) on circuit bent fuzz, shrilling vocals, and paranoid lyricism that leaves you without hope. It's pressed onto black vinyl that spins at 45rpm and comes neatly packaged in an extremely durable glossy pocket sleeve. While the noisy trio are busy gearing up for their 2017 European Summer tour, Rust and Machine Records have released a limited pressing of 200 copies of 'Sinusoidal Limitations' that is available now!

FUCKING INVINCIBLE/LIFESPITE - split 7"
FUCKING INVICIBLE (from Rhode Island) are fucking sick! Think GOSTOMPER with guitars or Scum era NAPALM DEATH. LIFESPITE (from Netherlands) has a dark, brooding crust kid of sound, like WARCOLLAPSE but more sludge. Orange vinyl limited to 500. (Atomic Action Records #72)

INTEGRITY - Seasons In The Size Of Days (20th Anniversary Edition) LP (color vinyl)
In 1997, Integrity would release their most critically controversial record. Where "Humanity Is The Devil" scorched the senses with blistering ferociousness, "Seasons In The Size Of Days" was a more thoughtfully focused dense bleakness. In celebration of the milestone, Organized Crime Records released the 20-year anniversary edition of this ground-shattering album for Black Friday 2016, with this version being from the follow-up re-pressing. LP includes digital download and is hand-numbered. (Organized Crime Records #65)

BRUTAL BLUES - s/t LP
A maniacal duo comprised of guitarist/vocalist Steinar (Psudoku, Parlamentarisk Sodomi, BxSxRx) and drummer/vocalist Anders (Blodsprut, Moha!, Noxagt, Ultralyd), BRUTAL BLUES unleashes blisteringly fast, raw, cutting-edge grindcore, and those familiar with the members' previous acts should expect nothing less than sonic devastation. Special LP packaging with three color silkscreen on silver foil sleeves. (Altar Records #8)

CHEPANG - Lathi Charge 7"
Devastating "Immigrindcore" from Nepali immigrants now living in the US. Chepang's name is taken from the lowest caste in their native country, a formerly nomadic people who have been neglected and derided by their people and government. Their first missive, Lathi Charge, which actually translates to the brute force used by riot police to disperse crowds, unleashes the raw fury and disdain of a people suffering centuries of neglect and oppression. (Altar Records #28)

COLUMN OF HEAVEN/SUFFERING LUNA - split LP
An extinguished flame burns brightly still. Posthumous final gasp from Canadian stalwarts Column of Heaven coupled with LA's resolute psychedelic freaks, Suffering Luna.

Unrelenting politically fueled Brazilian grindcore! Current and past members of Test and Are You God? Blinding raw speed and fury! (Altar Records #2)

DER/TEST - split 7"
Split EP from Sao Paolo, Brazil's veteran grinders. A true collaboration in every sense of the word, both bands share the same drummer and play on either stereo channel simultaneously for a dizzying effect. Pan left or right to hear each band individually or leave the mix in the middle to listen to both bands at the same time for a total sonic onslaught. (Altar Records #21)

DEFEATIST - Tyranny of Decay LP
Second and final full length from NYC's Defeatist. Bleak, ruthless grindcore with touches of twisted math rhythms from ex-members of Anodyne and Kalibas. Grinding corpse stench. (Altar Records #3)

DISROTTED - Divination LP
The second full length of death/doom filth from this Chicago trio. "A megalith of churning black filth spews oblivion that slowly creeps into the minds of men, breathing the stench of hopeless dread from an ancient crumbling death factory.

FACADA - Nadir LP
Blasting grindcore with death metal and crust influences from Brazil. Mixed and Mastered again by William Blackmon (Gadget). Includes guest appearance by members of RATOS DE PORAO, CHRONIC INFECT, HUTT. (Altar Records #9)

HAAPOJA - s/t LP
Stunning debut full length from Finland's Haapoja. Blackened angular hardcore that manages to keep the rhythm in the midst of dissonant chaos. A rare mix of being technically complex while still maintaining the groove. Rorscach meets Deathspell Omega. (Altar Records #7)

HAAPOJA/DEPHOSPHORUS - Collaboration LP
Split LP from Greece's Dephosphorus and Haapoja from Finland. A discordantly brutal masterpiece that explores the more tortured, emotional and existential side of the contemporary extreme underground. Dephosphorus hail from Athens, and play a unique musical style known as astrogrind: they endorse a cosmic, mind expanding aesthetic. Finland's Haapoja bring a bit more of a blackened approach to their fierce renditions spitting angular, befowled and almost mathy riffs over nuclear-clock precision beats and raw-throated howls. Far more than a mere split, this is a trve kvlt collaboration as each band exchanged singers on each opening song and guitarists. (Altar Records #12)

HAGGATHA - V LP
Haggatha excavate primordial doom from deep beneath the Earth's crust, conjuring some lamentable ancient devastation. Desperate, ruinous sludge from a cataclysmic prehistory that claws it's way back into the folds of the reptile consciousness in a torrent of hopeless murk. Vancouver's enduring traffickers of sludge defilement return with their third full length album and fifth solo release, appropriately titled "V". Six tracks of churning riff demolition clocking in at almost 40 minutes in a sleek package that continues the core aesthetic of the band emblem, this time in a black on black motif utilizing a spot gloss UV print. Current and ex-members of Bison BC, 3 Inches of Blood, Goatsblood, Osk. (Altar Records #29)

HEALER - s/t 7"
Buffalo's latest come blasting out of the gate with their first self titled EP. 12 quick tracks of razor sharp anthemic riffing and abrasive larynx shredding. Far from new comers this quartet boasts members of regarded Buffalo bands Running For Cover, They Live and Inerds, etc. Over the top craft and execution provide beacon of light shining in the murky shroud of hc punk. (Altar Records #15)

OVERVIOLENCE - Rapturous Expulsion 7"
Grinding Swedish noise from the front lines of the ongoing campaign of musical destruction. Twelve relentless blasts of ugly scraping pandemonium from former members of Widespread Bloodshed, Sewn Shut and Crowpath. Corrupting the common good! (Altar Records #20)

RADIATION BLACKBODY - Maximum Entropy and the Nearly Black Object 7"
Instrumental bass and drum grind prog duo comprising members of Defeatist and Anodyne alienate and demoralize with mathematic intention. Four new compositions likening to a monolithic figure floating in cold dead infinite space that is unable and unwilling to communicate. This release sees the duo expanding their sonic palette in terms of melody and tempo. Caustic mid tempo dirges erupt and ooze like an infected wound to lure the listener before violating them again with unrelenting blastbeat assaults. Masterful execution of repulsive rhythms from the intergalactic gutter. (Altar Records #14)

SAYYADINA - Mourning the Unknown LP
Mandatory Swedish grinders' magnum opus finally on vinyl! Members of General Surgery, Victims, Nasum, etc. Includes 3 bonus tracks recorded from the same session! (Altar Records #1)

SEA OF SHIT - 2nd 7"
Newest missive from Chicago's powerviolence battalion. Bitter resentment and rancor straining under a harsh suffocating wall of brutish noise. Ruined and invalidated by the mundane carnage of daily existence. The demise of hope. (Altar Records #24)

SICKMARK/CONSTRAINT - split 7"
Crushing German powerviolence in a blood pact with Philly noise mongers Constraint culminating in their US Summer 2015 Tour. Twisted shards of incendiary fuselage rip and tear the dead walls of empty tombs of the blind dead. And some tough riffs. (Altar Records #19)

SKULLSHITTER - Transmission: Command LP
Necrolysergic deathgrind exhumed from the sewers of Brooklyn. Raw and primal blasting through an acid soaked cosmic death trip burrowing into the inner filth of your psyche. This is howling putrid death hearkening back to the days of Repulsion and Autopsy. Comes with over sized full color poster. (Altar Records #26)

TRIAC/SACRIDOSE - split 7"
Pulverizing grindcore assault from these two enduring DIY stalwarts. Florida's Sacridose (ex-Cellgraft) rip and shred through blasts of jagged chaos as incendiary frontwoman Jaydee indicts the the modern slave state with vitriol and contempt. Baltimore's Triac new streamlined lineup mangles three blistering tracks of filth and fury with screeching feedback defilement and venomous loathing. (Altar Records #16)

VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE - s/t 7"
The debut EP from Buffalo's grinding maniacs, Victim of Circumstance. Featuring members of Water Torture, this foursome screech and blast their way through 11 short assaults of grinding hardcore. (Altar Records #11)

WAKE - Sowing the Seeds of a Worthless Tomorrow LP
A whole new level of violence and aggression from Canada's most infamous grindcore killing machine. WAKE's third full length album is a war zone of ferocious and swarming aggression that elevates the bar of grindcore to an entire new level, opening massive wounds in the listener's perceptions with a vicious and unrelenting onslaught of grindcore, sludge, black metal, crust and crippling post-hardcore. (Altar Records #23)

WATER TORTURE/THEDOWNGOING - split 7"
Split EP from Buffalo's Water Torture and thedowngoing from Australia in support of their joint North American Tour. Noise infested bass violence collides with screeching grind assaults from down under in short incendiary bursts. Offset printed covers with silkscreened obis. (Altar Records #6)

WATER TORTURE - Pillbox LP
Water Torture's long awaited first LP crushes all those foolish enough to stand in it's path. Low end grinding despair and cavernous noise collage fuse together in the Rustbelt collective's unique twist on grindviolence. Branching out from their previous work, down tempo sludge is juxtaposed with intense blasting and solemn interludes of mechanical noise. Feedback drenched hymns of self loathing in a desolate, futile existence. (Altar Records #10)

THE WAYWARD - Plutonic LP
Baltimore's discordant riff manglers return with their fourth full length offering. A dense rhythmic labyrinth of serpentine ferocity punctuated with spidery guitar sophistication. Singular songwriting ingenuity that demonstrates aggressive skronk dexterity while maintaining an aptitude for unique melody. (Altar Records #27)

WRITHING MASS - Human Capital 7"
Seething death/grind in the vein of ASSUCK or Excruciating Terror. Loathsome punishment and damnation in a gray world of scorched bodies and ash-choked skies. To be alive is to be a lie. Members of Triac, Defeatist and ASRA. (Altar Records #17)

Descriptions for 4/1/17

SOREX - Portrait Of A Prisoner LP
Hailing from Redondo Beach, California, Sorex released just a single 7" EP - three tracks of no-fi, snotty-yet-abrasive beach hardcore - in a 200-copy micro pressing in 1985, and played a scant dozen or so shows up and down the California coast before fading into hardcore record collector obscurity. Radio Raheem's crack team of hardcore archaeologists have since managed to rescue Sorex's elusive EP from the collector ghetto and tack on an 17 additional tracks, culled from the band's 1984 demo tape and sessions for a never-released 1985 LP, all accompanied by a 16-page, full-color booklet full of rare photos, flyers and ephemera. Limited to 500 copies. (Radio Raheem Records #16)

DEMONCY - Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost LP
Nuclear War Now! completes the unearthing of Demoncy's original evil trinity with this presentation of the band's second opus. "Within the Sylvan Realms of Frost" exudes a frozen aura that is worthy of its title and thus serves as the second chapter in a tome written by one of the most innovative originators of black metal to have defiled the North American continent. (Nuclear War Now Records #333)

DISGUST - A World Of No Beauty LPx2 (3 sided with screen printed D side)
Twelve brutal tracks showcasing pure aggression in a truly violent and relentless form. Originally released on CD in 1997 through Nuclear Blast. Now finally on vinyl. Disgust was a relatively short lived D-beat metal outfit that released two albums in the 90's through the Earache and Nuclear Blast labels. Their songs displayed extreme leftist and anarchist views and their artwork was often highly graphic photographs of war, massacres or the destitute effects of poverty. There's no doubt that the band was firing on all cylinders here, the twelve original tracks recorded for A World Of No Beauty are executed at absolutely breakneck speed, and the band's performance as a whole is remarkably spirited. Immortal D-Beat Classic From 1997. Originally released by Nuclear Blast. Features Dean Jones (Extreme Noise Terror, Raw Noise) & Würzel (Motörhead). First Time On Vinyl! Deluxe Double Vinyl! Screen Printed D-Side! Strictly Limited Edition! (Behind The Mountain Records #12)

SEDEM MINUT STRACHU - Sedem Minut Samurai 7"
The new generation of noisecore royalty. Legends in the making. Current reigning champions of Europe by my measure. A band named "Seven Minutes of Fear", melding Seven Minutes of Nausea and Fear of God in their home language, can't really go wrong there. I have loved SMS since their initial string of split 7"s that I distro'd here in the USA, and they are one of the few bands that inspire genuine excitement and urgency within me with each new release. Not only do I need it, I need it NOW, every time. Their blunt style of noisecore is perfectly executed. It's simple really: just a trio of maniacs mindlessly bashing and howling away as fast and as loud as they can. Always impeccably brutal, always leaping off the grooves energetic, and always stylistically realized and thoughtful. Simply perfect. I was already a fan when they wrote me wanting to trade, and after we hit it off, I was quick to offer them a release. Bless these men for having such patience with me as that was quite some time ago LOL. But now we will release these recordings made on their recent Japan tour, with Ryohei (Final Exit) at the helm in his own personal recording studio. 9 minutes of nonstop fury and reckless "fuck riffs" attitude, out in time for their USA/Canada tour this fall. (SPHC Records #73)

WOE - Hope Attrition LP
A true gem in the world of American black metal and another ripe, red tomato in the garden of this Brooklyn band's discography. Some albums waste no time letting you know that you're in a welcomed, comfortable place, that your need for top quality metal will be satiated. Some albums know that all you want are riffs, maybe even a barrage of riffs. You are only looking for a good-ol' time filled with head banging, foot stomping, and the possible, but most likely, occurrence of air guitar/drum playing. "Hope Attrition" sets your mind at ease within the first few seconds of opening track, 'Unending Call Of Woe'. This is going to be an album that you will enjoy, Hell, possibly even love. There is something exceptionally special about this album. While it is immediately angry and violent sounding, there is this nagging feeling of, dare I say, hope. They just sound like they're having too much fun playing these songs. Even though some of the songs are titled, 'The Ones We Lost' and 'Abject in Defeat', and the album starts off with the screaming of, "This is a failure". I am inclined to believe otherwise. The foundation is black metal, the post-y tendencies have infiltrated only slightly, and there is death. The guitars are searing in their exactitude yet unfurl with such beauty. The drumming is tight, impressive, and a perfect driving compliment to the force of the melodies. The vocals growl and shriek, giving a perfect balance of styles. Lead riffs pepper the driving force of the songs adding extra melodic focus and interest. The solos are also what give way to a sense of optimistic release, they are very well written and somehow perfectly compliment the songs without sounding out of place. (Vendetta Records #133)

RUBBLE - s/t 7"
Debut 7" from Portland's UK82 inspired peace punk. Female fronted pogo attack with ex-members of Bog People & Verraterisch. (Distort Reality Records #36)

NOT LIKE YOU FANZINE #7
Featuring the usual news and reviews as well as interviews with Give, Dave Hackett, Nimbus skateboards founder Charlie Butterly and Dean Pascucci (founder of the Skate Punk Reunion festival) . We also have 20 question interviews with skateboarders Spacoli and Justyce Tabor. 40 full size pages including our first full color cover. Not Like You has quickly become a respected zine amongst the scene from coast to coast, breaking down the barriers and genres which continue to divide it. 40 full size b&w pages. (Not Like You Records #7)

THE SCREAMING ABDABS/CITY RAM WADDY - split LP
Unknown, barely-documented first-wave Sydney punk rock, delivered with speed, energy and a uniquely Australian identity. The Screaming Abdabs (1978) tear through 8 previously unreleased songs of rough and ready female-fronted punk akin to a devolved Suicide Squad or the Bags or at their most sloppy, with tips of the hat to obscure '60s punk, AC/DC, and a conceptual debt to the rhythm section of The Glitter Band. Richard "City Ram" Waddy was the Abdabs' drummer, whose two very raw/very rare 1979 solo records are compiled and made widely available here for the first time. The 6 songs range from some of the most primitive and lo-fi ever released in Australia, to sparse, clean minimalism channeling Suicide and PiL, but always infused with Waddy's idiosyncratic worldview. Comes with huge newsprint poster insert with lengthy interviews, photos and press clippings. (Ugly Pop/Wallaby Beat Records #2603)

45 ADAPTERS - They Call It Justice 7"
It's been two long years since the 45 Adapters released their smashing maxi-single "Patriots Not Fools," but fear not, because they're back with three brand new songs that pack the musical impact of a NYC subway train barreling down upon you. Lyrically, the band continues to take jabs at mainstream society - and these three topical new tunes are meant to both move the body and stimulate your mind. With a slightly darker and heavy tone developing over their past couple of releases, 45 Adapters exposes much of the uncertainty in life, but one thing that is certain is that 45 Adapters is not your typical sounding skinhead band. 7" includes digital download. (Pirate's Press Records #186)

Descriptions for 3/25/17

TRAGEDY - 1st LP (Scene Support version)
Back in print after more than a decade! Tragedy came from the ashes of His Hero Is Gone and Deathreat and this first album shaped the sound of hardcore/punk from 2000 and on. This debut LP is a hardcore classic - as good, if not better, than anything that His Hero Is Gone or Deathreat ever released. The songs are exactly what you would expect, with the addition of some fantastic melodic elements. A truly great record finally available again! The first 100 copies are the Scene Support version with Scene Support insert and spine wrap. (Tragedy Records #1)

CLITERATI - s/t 7" (Scene Support version)
Portland, Oregon's Cliterati fronted by Ami Lawless of Voetsek. Hardcore? D-beat? Queer-core? How about total earache party crust. Former members of Poison Idea, Voetsek, and Murderess. Has an anti Donald Trump song, and you can't go wrong with that. The Scene Support version comes on white vinyl and includes a poster. Limited to 100 copies. (Tank Crimes Records #99)

CONNOISSEUR - Over the Edge LP/cassette tape
Likening themselves to Earth Crisis if they smoked weed and listened to Spazz, CONNOISSEUR's "Over the Edge" is the Oakland trios second full length. Fourteen blunted ragers recorded by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Iron Lung, Brainoil) and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound (Ghoul, Spazz). (Tank Crimes Records #102)

CAVE STATE/CONCUSSIVE - split 7" (Scene Support version)
CAVE STATE is back with their patented old school powerviolence worship crushing hardcore sound. This time they brought their friends CONCUSSIVE who bring just as much angry NO COMMENT worship as their counterpart. This split could easily fit on Slap A Ham, Pessimer, or Theologian Records in the past but luckily it is 2017 and this is on To Live A Lie for your enjoyment. The Scene Support version is limited to 100 copies with special limited cover. (To Live A Lie Records #123)

BESTIAL RAIDS - Master Satan's Witchery LP
With its previous opus, Bestial Raids earned its acclamation as one of the most furious bestial black metal bands active today. "Master Satan's Witchery" is undeniably an extension of Bestial Raids' previous efforts, and the new songs effectively serve to augment and enhance rather than usurp the violent effect with which the band is most readily associated, thus emphasizing its status as a standard-bearer for the current generation of bestial black metal. (Nuclear War Now Records #332)

HOWLS OF EBB - Vigils of the 3rd Eye LPx2
Nuclear War Now! first worked with Howls of Ebb in 2016 on the vinyl release of the band's second album, "Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows." Much like its second album, "Vigils..." realizes its potency through a combination of countlessly-varied riffs, tempo changes, and layered musical textures. The synthesis of these traits makes "Vigils of the 3rd Eye," like its successor, a product of a band who defies the conventions of its sub-genre and thus earns its recognition as a modern-day innovator of death metal. (Nuclear War Now Records #337)

HOLOCAUSTO - War Metal Massacre CD
It is extremely rare that a band is able to recapture a sound that it first established over thirty years ago but then lost in the process of its evolution on later recordings. With its original lineup in the mid-1980s, Holocausto was instrumental in the development of the unique strain of black metal that emerged from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil at that time. Known as the original "deathcore" to the most seasoned veterans of that scene and those who have come to understand it from a historical perspective, this variety of metal shares nothing in common with the abomination that the term has come to more typically represent in the present day. Instead, it is the savage brand of black metal, primarily popularized by the infamous Sarcofago, which repeatedly pushes itself to the brink of total musical disintegration before somehow managing to resist its own self-annihilation. Now, three decades after the release of the essential "Warfare Noise" compilation, on which the band contributed two of its earliest songs, Holocausto triumphantly returns to its earlier pioneering sound with its original lineup. The first three songs, which comprise Side A of the LP version, are re-recordings of the "Massacre" demo track from 1985 and the two tracks first committed to tape on the "Warfare Noise" compilation from 1986. Even more importantly, the three new songs on the album confirm Holocausto's ability to have recaptured its original, feral songwriting capacity. (Nuclear War Now #324)

SMART DADS - Bummer Summer LP
In our humble opinion, San Antonio, Texas' the Smart Dads are the embodiment of lo-fi cassette punk at its finest. This LP contains the only recorded output by this short-lived group of military school misfits, who self-released a 7-track cassette in 1982 with an obnoxious 7"-sized insert, inconveniently housed in an oversized zip-lock bag with a badge clipped to the front. The title track - or any of the other 6 tracks, for that matter - would have found the perfect home on Bloodstains Across Texas or any of the Killed By Death volumes, had it made it to vinyl during the band's original tenure. This record is a testament to what we at Radio Raheem HQ love - 100% junk, full-on punk, completely sincere, and scarcely heard. One time pressing of 300 copies complete with 12-page, full-color booklet and silk screened vinyl B-side. Mailorder copies include reproductions of the original 1.25" button designs. (Radio Raheem Records #17)

OI POLLOI - Saorsa LP
This is the sixth studio album of the long going scottish anarchist punk band "OI POLLOI" (ancient slang for "The Common People") - 15 new songs recorded in 2014 with an retrospective of the many musically influences of previous OI POLLOI records. Here you find the anarcho charged sing-a-long Oi!Punk in exchange with D-Beat-Crust and of course classic UK Anarcho Punk. "Saorsa" means "Freedom" in scottish gaelic and "Freedom" or "Liberty" is the lyrical main subject of this album. Lyrics are mostly sung in English with little excursions into Gaelic, Spanish as well as Yiddish. With all the heavy political content, OI POLLOI never excluded humor in what they do and this is what makes them so sympathic in my eyes. Responsible for the beautiful artwork was Sonia L. who already contributed to previous OI POLLOI records such as "Fuaim Catha". This album is housed in a gatefold sleeve with additional poster and lyric sheet. Recorded at E-Studio/Helsinki, Finland 2014. Produced and Engineered by Jyri Riikonen. (Ruin Nation Records #38)

VICIOUS IRENE/VEHEMENCE - Split LP (Scene Support version)
This team double of international feminist inspired hardcore punk toured together across europe in 2015 and will continue to do so in 2016. We thought it's worth to have it engraved into wax and finally after (too) many delays this fine slap o' vinyl is ready to punch out! Six blasting new tracks from Goteborgs VICIOUS IRENE who continue where they stopped on their last full length "Distorted State Of Mind". A blend of radical feminist Crustpunk with a slight "grunge" edge and vocal melodies that remind you of early "Babes In Toyland" or "L7" in conjunction with some serious D-Beat-Crustcore! Valerie Solanas' SCUM MANIFEST is quoted more than once and the general lyrical content is pointing out a fair lot of current feminist-political topics that are hopefully inspiring to you as well. - Recorded and mixed by Pontus Redig (Agrimonia, Martyrdod, Miasmal) and mastered by Goran Finnberg. Probably the best VICIOUS IRENE to date! On the flip side we have VEHEMENCE hailing from Marseille and Nancy (France) who deliver 3 extended songs of doom laden, shredding and distorted grind-metal-punk with an overall dystopian atmosphere. There's heaps of sludge and screamo-core every now and then and the whole musical package is a brutal grinder ... especially live, this band manage to build up a wall of apocalyptic noise and mayhem. Just play loud and you know what i mean! Lyrics deal with the poetry of despair... just as you might expect, not too uplifting topics. Recorded and Mastered at La Cave 38 in' Metz by Monsieur Marcaille. Includes Digital Download. (Ruin Nation Records #36)

BASTARD NOISE/OUTERMOST - split 7"
"STUDIES OF SPACE AND SORROW" finds the original line-up of BASTARD NOISE (BARNES/WOOD) working with OUTERMOST' KEI YOKOTA of Sapporo, Japan. This second collaborative body of work (the first being 1999's "CAULDRON OF FIRE" 7" e.p.) is an 11 minute sound journey takes the crisis that mankind has imposed on the Mother Earth (with all of his destructive choices) and reflects with extreme sound and lyrical/vocal imagery our current state of affairs as a failed species. Intense deep space "lunar pools" and cross attack insect war electronics (BN) + scathing, barbaric "junk electronics (OUTERMOST) merge to produce four tracks of ruthless, lesson learning brutality that reflects the tortured society we are (unfortunately) a part of. Deep aural geography that only BASTARD NOISE and OUTERMOST could produce as a collective unit. Comes in random color vinyl. (Skull Releases #5.5)

ENDLESS SWARM/CONCUSSIVE - split 7"
Edinburgh, Scotland's ENDLESS SWARM has been destroying human senses with unrelenting grind-violence since 2013. These brutes create sheer carnage while delivering face-melting material consisting of endless drum blasts, frantic guitar shredding, fuzzed-out bass noise and maniacal vocals. FFO: Cave State, The Afternoon Gentlemen or Disciples Of Christ. CONCUSSIVE is an extremely impressive new powerviolence band from Martinez/Pittsburg area of East Bay. Classic West Coast powerviolence sound that can contend with the very best bands you can name or think (Despise You), most of their songs under 30 seconds, and that's the way it should be.

SKAVEN - Discography LP (Scene Support version)
Everything ever recorded by this Oakland based, shortlived dystopian crust band from the bottom of the gutter. This is authentic, down to earth mid 1990'ies bassheavy CRUST played british style. Lyrix dealing mostly with the misery of life and the personal downfall of the human being in our impersonal, alienated society. The lyrical content is getting perfectly delivered by these eight lovely and life-affirming tunes... imagine that after the music kicks off the wallpapers starts unsticking, mold begins to grow and the smell of decay is spreading in your room... that might describe the amebixish vibe of their sound at it's best. On here you find their split Lp with Dystopia, their 7" + their Split 7" with Stormcrow released years after their demise, both studio-sessions executed by Noah Landis (Neurosis) at Polymorph Studios and remastered 2012 by Brad Boatright from Audiosiege Portland. Great packaging with 2 posters + insert + booklet! Scene Support version on purple vinyl. (Skuld Releases #92)

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)

JOHN HENRY WEST - Door Bolted Shut LP with CD (Scene Support 2016 version)
Scene Support version is hand numbered and includes a silk screened plastic dust sleeve, and a Scene Support spine wrap. In the works for what seems like an eternity, Ebullition finally brings the John Henry West discography into existence. John Henry West played 50 shows between the fall of 1992 and the late summer of 1993. Side A of the LP features the 4 tracks from their 7" on Gravity Records, and side B features their songs from the "3/12/93" compilation and "A History of Compassion and Justice?" compilation LP, as well as 2 previously unreleased songs. The bonus CD features the original 6 song demo, their final live show at the Gilman (7 tracks), and a live set that they played on WUSB Radio in July of 1993 (9 tracks). The LP comes with a CD sized booklet with lyrics and photos. John Henry West were members of other great bands such as Fuel, Navio Forge, Bread & Circuits, Sawhorse, Torches To Rome, Sixteen Bullets, End of The Line, and plenty more! (Ebullition Records #60)

Descriptions for 3/18/17

FUCKED UP - Year of the Snake LP
Fucked Up's latest entry into the Zodiac Series documents the journey of self care and opening awareness through the use of psychedelics and medicinal plants. 24 minute epic track follows the narrative of a trip with strange instrumentation and electronics. Held together sonically with the bands own loose inturpretation of hardcore punk. (Tank Crimes Records #100)

FUCK YOU PAY ME - Dumbed Down LP
Fast, negative, anthemic dark hardcore done correctly. From Cleveland. Fronted by Tony Erba of 9 Shocks Terror, Gordon Solie Mother Fuckers. (Tank Crimes Records #101)

RIXE - Bapteme Du Feu 7"
French Oi! poster boys Rixe return with EP number three. Again it's a four tracker and there is no let up in the quality. It's full of snarl, bite and anthems. Tenter Le Diable starts the onslaught with some immense tom tom work before heading into another classic Rixe Oi! pounder. Paris-Est begins with a military beat before the guttural vocals and crunching guitars come in and smash you over the head. Every part of this two minutes and 53 seconds song is precise and perfect pop. Condamne is a straight down the line Oi! smash full of hate and bile and that Rixe wall of sound we know and love already. Last cut Hécatombe is a total head nodder that has bounce and a chorus to either die for or sing-a-long to Three EPs in and Rixe continue to take Oi! to new heights. As it is a tradition on the Rixe 7" trilogy Bapteme Du Feu 7" comes housed in a reverse board sleeve with collaborative artwork between Nick Rat and Maxime Smadja. Comes with lyric insert and download code. (La Vida Es Un Mus #136)

STRAIGHTJACKET NATION - s/t LP
Forming in 2004, Straightjacket Nation (featuring members of other important Australian bands such as Pisschrist, Total Control and The UV Race) have long been considered by many to be among the best that modern hardcore has to offer. Whether rearing their ugliness live or remaining underground and birthing releases sporadically, Straightjacket Nation absolutely DESTROY - undeniably deserving the cult following they've earned over the years, and the cult is alive. 2017 sees the release of the second Straightjacket Nation LP. Intimidating and foul, ridden with feedback, lurching and slamming, screeching and boiling over. There's no hint of youthfulness here, instead lurks a fearful incarnation of hardcore punk at it's darkest and most foul. One moment disciplined, the next a sprawling chaos. Straightjacket Nation stands alone, a horrible entity carved out in stone. Mean. Strict. Remorseless. Vengeful. Harsh. SJN. File between GAUZE, POISON IDEA Pick Your King era and LIP CREAM great hits. (La Vida Es Un Mus #129)

MELLOW HARSHER/INVERTEBRATE - split 7"
Wisconsin role models, Mellow Harsher, return with seven more assaults on everything civil. Yet another testament to their established seat at the top of the midwest blast game. Invertebrate kick out five tracks furthering the history of bay area brutality. Nods towards the classic 90's power violence kings stitching samples and speed switchin in all directions. Co-released with Malokul; Limited to 500. (625 Productions Records #255.5)

PUBLIC TRUST - The Leper 7"
The debut recording of PUBLIC TRUST, starring the infamous and notorious BAN (mastermind and vocalist for Boston Strangler, Anxiety, drummer for Scapegoat). Four blistering tracks of brash, obnoxious and violent hardcore PUNK... For fans of scummy New England punk shit like The Freeze, Jabbers-era GG Allin, Unnatural Axe, FU's, early Out Cold, and only the finer moments in KBD/BLOODSTAINS history. One-time pressing of 500... buy or cry. (Boston Strangler Records #3.6)

DEATH COURIER - Demise LP
Nuclear War Now! and Weird Face Productions first conspired to draw much-deserved attention to Death Courier's landmark 1992 Greek death metal album, "Demise," by reissuing it in 2014 as a limited 12" picture disc. Now the same two partners resume that effort by offering the album on a standard vinyl format. This unearthing and reanimation of Death Courier's earliest scourging imprints erases a longstanding void in the availability of the most essential recordings from one of the most important pillars in the Greek black/death metal canon. (Nuclear War Now Records #267)

DEATH COURIER - EP and Demo LP
Death Courier's foreboding 1989 "Deny Your Destiny" demo and 1990 "Necrorgasm" EP have been compiled on a single LP to document the band's early trajectory, which eventually led to the release of "Demise." This "EP and Demo" LP also includes four live tracks taken from the 1990 Molon Lave Festival and a 1991 gig at the Villa Amalias Squat in Athens. This unearthing and reanimation of Death Courier's earliest scourging imprints erases a longstanding void in the availability of the most essential recordings from one of the most important pillars in the Greek black/death metal canon. (Nuclear War Now Records #317)

SACRIFICIO - Guerra Eterna LP
Spain's Sacrificio has sought to channel the barbaric spirit of the original black metal gods and thus recapture the essence of an art that has largely been diluted by a rather formulaic recipe in more recent times. The purposeful anachronism of "Guerra Eterna" draws on the influences of archetypal bands such as Bathory, Sodom, Hellhammer, Tormentor, and Sarcofago to achieve a product that both pays homage to its ancestors and creates something unique through a recombination of elements that were particular to the individual bands of this conglomerate. (Nuclear War Now Records #336)

BASTARD NOISE/BRUTALOMANIA - split 7"
Long time friends Manual Cubas (formerly of Spain's GENITAL MASTICATOR) of BRUTALOMANIA and WOOD (BN) unite to create a split of total intensity and ear slaying violence. With a lasting reverence to avenging animal cruelty where ever it may exist, BASTARD NOISE offers up four unique, multi-layered and complex electronic pieces, each one complete with aggressive vocals, sickening textures and frequency expansion overload. Crystal clear production allowing the biggest sound is a lasting BN trademark and this e.p. is no exception. BRUTALOMANIA (from the Canary Islands of Spain) features a single decimating track of thick, electric wall assault. Fury of complete disintegrating audio destruction. Complete, unbridled power ! As extreme as it gets... Comes in random colored vinyl. (Skull Releases #5)

SICK TIRED/NAK'AY - split 7"
Two titans of Midwest grindcore finally paired together on the same 7". Each band delivers their own distinct brand of blazing fast grind that is sure to sonically destroy your eardrums, for better or for worse. Nak'ay hails from Ft. Wayne, IN and Sick/Tired from Chicago. Both bands have been long-running acts at this point and the material on this split 7" is their strongest to date. (Diseased Audio #17)

GAS CHAMBER/D.O.C. - split 7"
Gas Chamber hails from Buffalo, NY and draws influence from their former hardcore/pv project RUNNING FOR COVER, with chaotic blast parts as tight as ever, but also now bearing a more dynamic song structure overall with noise elements and slower melodic parts interlaced throughout. A truly unique form of hardcore made by genuine outsiders. D.O.C., on the flipside, play extremely heavy, downtuned, noisey grindviolence, no frills and no letting up ever until it's over. Hailing from Washington, DC and comprised of ex members of Magrudergrind. (Diseased Audio #18)

FIRING SQUAD - At Their Mercy 7"
Richmond's purveyors of straight-forward, classic style hardcore punk are back with six more relentless tracks. If their previous recording was towards the fast 'n loose spectrum of punk, this new platter comes off as utterly cold and calculating. Think of it inspired equally by traditional USHC and late 80s-90s Japanese groups, a la Bastard. For those who like riff oriented hardcore with piercing guitars, a driving rhythm section, and commanding vocals. Mastered by Josh Bonati, and comes in a glue pocket sleeve with artwork by Matt Bellosi. (Agitate Records #3)

DAKHMA - Suna Kulto LP
Dakhma's second full length takes their hideous black metal inspired punk sound to new heights, with 2 epic 20 minute tracks. Overwhelming and punishing with torn throat filth vocals and good doses of atmosphere. (IFB Records #108)

PLURAL BEING - Demo tape cassette
Noisy outsider punk from Fort Myers FL - members of Merkit and Panzram return to deliver 5 new tracks of disgusted punk. Each song has it's own personality ranging from almost blown up pounding, to a catchy pop-punk riff that ends in a miserable dirge, to a one riff dance-hall banger. Fresh and ugly from some small-town lifers. (IFB Records #109)

SUBJECTS RULERS - s/t tape cassette
Subjects Rulers were a short lived project out of Nashville with folks from Cease Upon the Capitol and Dolcim. They recorded this full length then spread out across the country, leaving us this lovely little tape as a document of their existence. This is expertly executed screamo with just the right amount of chaos, massive, uplifting passages, dynamic drumming and powerful vocals. These guys have been doing this a long time and it shows. (IFB Records #94)

LE ALMEIDA - Todas As Brisas LP
Brasil's master of lo-fi 90's indie/psych/grunge worship returns with yet another masterpiece of the genre. For easy references, think Guided By Voices or early Pixies, but on this record Le adds more of a psychedelic element to these tracks - a bit more stoned if you will, but maintaining his signature ability to take a simple riff and turn it into something truly special. There are riffs on this record that I could live the rest of my life with on a desert island. Perfect raw pop for an ugly world. Burn some candles and turn it up loud - it's the last thing we can count on. (IFB Records #104)

SHOTWELL/MIAMI - split LP
Reissue of one of our favorite DIY punk rock split LPs, EVER. Punk veterans from San Fransisco, CA. that includes members of: Strawman, Allergic To Bullshit, Hickey, Chickenhead, Onion Flavored Rings, Black Rainbow & so many more.

CULTES DES GHOULES - Coven, or Evil Ways Instead of Love LPx3
Comes in a hardbound outer slipcase housing 3-LPs with a 20-page A5 book. The metal underground is awash with more bands than ever, but none quite sound like Poland's CULTES DES GHOULES. And now, with the release of the band's highly anticipated third album, Coven, HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present CULTES DES GHOULES' magnum opus and forever prove that no one ever will quite sound like THIS. A mysterious collective with a full lineup but no facts fully revealed about it, CULTES DES GHOULES have always let their music speak for itself. Their early demos and Odd Spirituality EP, all highly sought after upon their initial release, eventually culminated in CULTES DES GHOULES' classic debut album, Haxan. Released in 2008 but eventually reissued by HELLS HEADBANGERS in 2011 after its first two versions quickly sold out, Haxan was a mesmerizing monolith beyond compare - ghoulish, gibbering, and ghastly in equal measures - although its sinful stench fondly recalled the likes of earliest, evilest Necromantia, Beherit, Mayhem, and Mortuary Drape. Also in 2011 came the Spectres Over Transylvania EP, which was an epic 25-minute track that suggested the ambitious direction to come. And come it did with 2013's Henbane, a five-song/58-minute monster of mesmerizing power. Dread and disease wafting up from the abyss like fumes of the most potent sulfur, coiling and releasing in a tense coitus of godless abandon, the unremittingly repulsive sounds of death worship: Henbane soon became a modern classic for a new generation of black metallers hungry for foul sounds with fathomless depth(s). (Hells Headbangers Records #190)

MORTICIAN - Darkest Day Of Horror LP
Comes in a gatefold cover. Heinous horror-lords Mortician reanimate the golden age of low-budget splatter, hammering home gruesome anti-music. Darkest Day of Horror is pure sonic zombification as terror-filled atmospheres, hyperspeed rhythms, subterranean blower bass and neanderthal-like vocals annihilate with no concern for subtlety or musical nuance. You may as well dig your grave in anticipation as the heaviest death metal band on the planet delivers devastating digital damage at vicious, violent volumes. (Hells Headbangers Records #176)

INCANTATION - Decimate Christendom LP
Their 2004 album now re-issued on vinyl in a gatefold cover with silver hot foil print and liner notes on a printed inner sleeve. Choose from traditional black vinyl or purple/oxblood marbled vinyl. 111 copies pressed as a picture disc (with the same packaging as the regular LP) exclusively for HHR mailorder. One of the most important bands ever to merge in the death metal genre, INCANTATION is often imitated but never equaled. "Decimate Christendom" picks up where "Blasphemy" left off, while harking back to their doomier past. (Hells Headbangers Records #229)

INCANTATION - Primordial Domination LP
Their 2006 album now re-issued on vinyl in a gatefold cover with gold hot foil print and liner notes on a printed inner sleeve. Choose from traditional black vinyl or gold/bronze marbled vinyl. 111 copies pressed as a picture disc (with the same packaging as the regular LP) exclusively for HHR mailorder. One of the most important bands ever to merge in the death metal genre, INCANTATION is often imitated but never equaled. (Hells Headbangers Records #230)

HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH - Heaven Bled LP with 7" included
Pressed as a 12" with 7" housed in a gatefold cover with gold foil stamping on the front and back. Helmed by one relentless maniac named Peter Hobbs, HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH are one of the more unsung cult favorites of '80s metal. Hailing from Australia many years before it was cool to do so, the band released two classic demos in 1987, Angel of Death and the telltale Virgin Metal Invasion From Down Under, before time came for the inevitable debut album. That album, 1988's Hobbs' Angel of Death, was released by Steamhammer during the label's glory years, and quickly found a devoted legion of fans enthralled to HOBBS' Kreator-meets-Dark Angel style of deathrash. With a unique charisma that was devilishly gleeful in a sense, Hobbs' Angel of Death sired the band's self-tagged "virgin metal," which worked in both connotations of the word. It would be many years before a follow-up, 1995's Inheritance, and the band broke up not long after. Come 2002, however, HOBBS' ANGEL OF DEATH would re-form and play a number of European festivals and scattered tour dates over the next decade, but aside from the Hobbs' Satan Crusade compilation of the two demos, no new material had yet arisen. There's demonic fury in abundance, but it's tempered with the quiet confidence of age and wisdom, through which Hobbs LOUDLY casts his incisive gaze on a whole host of subjects, each one more vitriolic (and catchier) than the next. Altogether, Heaven Bled is a timeless blend of extreme metals throughout the ages, sounding as fresh as HOBBS' ANGEL OF DEATH's explosion onto the international scene in 1987. (Hells Headbangers Records #193)

BESTIAL WARLUST - Storming Bestial Legions Live '96 LP
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to release a special live album from the legendary BESTIAL WARLUST, Storming Bestial Legions LIVE '96, on both CD and vinyl LP formats. Just like the title states, Storming Bestial Legions LIVE '96 captures these Australian extreme metal pioneers at the height of their powers, not long after their classic second album, Blood & Valour, was released. As such, the setlist BESTIAL WARLUST storm through here encompasses that album as well as their pivotal debut album, Vengeance War 'till Death, which went on to become one of the most mimicked black metal records in the new millennium, where the bestial metal subgenre they helped foment soon flourished. But everything that made BESTIAL WARLUST so deadly - bulldozing heaviness, gnawing violence, hypnotic hatred - is captured in its rawest, most red-eyed state on Storming Bestial Legions LIVE '96, making the album an indispensable component to any bestial diehard's collection and a rare document of black/death primitivism in the pre-social media era. In conjunction with this live album, HELLS HEADBANGERS will be reissuing BESTIAL WARLUST's two lone albums, 1994's Vengeance War 'till Death and 1995's Blood & Valour, on deluxe digipack and, for the first time, cassette. BESTIAL fucking WARLUST: enough said! (Hell's Headbangers Records #187)

PITFALL - Demo 12"
After Chicago legends PUNCH IN THE FACE called it quits in 2007, three of the members reformed some time after to start PITFALL. Taking a decidedly melodic yet still hard-edged approach, veterans Jeff Jelen, Ebro Virumbrales, and Dave Song recorded these incredible 8 tracks. Get ready to have these songs stuck in your head because these are some of the catchiest anthems in ages. Taking influence from classic Oi! and Chicago punk, this is one masterpiece of a demo. Includes a smashing cover of "Victims of the Vampire" by Slaughter and the Dogs! 1 sided LP, limited to 500 copies! 8 tracks. (Hate Ape Records#12)

(restock) ORCHID - Totality LP
The complete 1998 - 2002 singles collection finally available on LP! Twentyfour songs remastered from the original recordings, including the self-titled 7", five split releases, three compilation tracks and one unreleased song. Vinyl includes a 20 page, full color, 7" x 7" booklet, and download code. (Clean Plate Records #38)

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

BLASTING CONCEPT - Sloth Rocket LP
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)

(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)

JOHN HENRY WEST - Door Bolted Shut LP (comes with bonus CD)
