s/t 12-Inch Holy Roar

Witch Cult must be one of the most frustrating, talked-about, mysterious bands to come out of the UK hardcore underground in sometime. Playing early live shows on in balaclavas with performances barely lasting 8 or so minutes, whilst concurrently spinning false rumours about who is in the band, a surge of Chinese-whispers quickly spread. Having previously released a warped, noise-inflicted, rehearsal room tape and scrapping an entire recording session, anticipation has been building for legitimate recordings ? and now they are finally here. This is their first official release ? a one-sided, 10 song, 12? vinyl with a super-special etched b-side. Taking cues from Spazz, Infest, Charles Bronson, Vaccine, Hatred Surge, Electric Wizard and more, Witch Cult play feedback-drenched (and the feedback truly is the most painful you have heard in quite some time!) power-violence with despondent, resigned doom passages. If this makes no sense to you ? then fuck you, fast slow. Noise, sludge, droning doom, d-beat, blast-o-caust, grind, punk, anger. Purity achieved through high volume rebirth.

Six Reasons To Drop Out 7-Inch Give Me Strength

Comprised of the members from Diehard Youth, With Or Without You don't follow the same ethics of Diehard Youth in being a posi band, nor are they a negative band, or a tough band. They're just a band with a realistic outlook, with music and messages written about what they want to hear and say. Unlike other bands, they draw from a variety of musical influences, making it impossible to pigeonhole their sound. This is the vinyl version of the Martyr CD and definitely their best release yet. Available on limited color vinyl.

Faith, Flesh & Blood 7-Inch A389

With their hard to find "Unknown Misery" 7" fading into the land of rarities, Withdrawal is back with a new record just in time for their North American and European summer tour dates. Three brand new tracks (digital has a fourth bonus track) of apocalyptic metal-core from these Canadian disciples of the Holy Terror Church Of Final Judgement. Fans of Ringworm, Catharsis, and All Out War take note. 7" includes digital download.

Never LP Escapist

Formed in Winnipeg, Canada, in 2008, Withdrawal has earned a devoted cult following with numerous releases across various mediums (7" vinyl, cassette, digital) and performances alongside legends and peers alike, including Integrity, Power Trip, Catharsis, Xibalba and more. For years, a full-length was often on the horizon, but seemingly never materialized. "Never" finds the band making good on that threat, dismissing the genre trappings to play it safe or by the numbers. Withdrawal casts aside expectation: Neurosis-like dirge gives way to Bolt Thrower-esque double bass runs. All Out War-style thrash riffs transform into uneasy gothic laments. Connecticut style breakdowns become acid-soaked with pitch-shifting delays. "Never" is Withdrawal cementing their legacy in the realm of hardcore. LP includes digital download and is limited to 508 copies.

Ligthmares LP Per Koro

After last years selftitled 7", WITHERS are about to release their first 12" called "lightmares". The fourpiece from Linz, Austria is approaching music intensely, and is driven by vocal outbursts,and disruptive guitars. They are developing a sound that will assault your senses, feedbacks punctuating the eardrum to an apocalyptic backdrop. Lyrically they want to keep it deep and speak in general about human/social atrocities, troubled minds, search of self-awareness, and so on... Bands like CONVERGE, BOTCH or THE CURSED might come to mind listening to them. Vinyl comes with eyecatching artwork, thick inside-out cover, black innersleeve, lyricsheet and includes a digital download card.

s/t 7-Inch Adagio 830

Finally after 4 months wait - we got the WITS END 7" from the plant. Four seems to be the magic number, on this record - 4 members, 4 songs, 4 months waiting ... well :) Wits End deliver 4 songs of beautiful heartfelt mid90ies emo core played by ex members of Catena Collapse (so you kinda know what to expect?!) - It seems like Norway always puts me into a time traveling machine back to day where Council, Ebullition and all those labels released some of my favourite records. All records come w/ silk screened covers and the first press is 500 copies on black vinyl. An Lp will hopefully get released this winter

Too Much Is Never Enough LP Know

Walk Proud is probably best known in the hardcore scene for having been the first release for New Age Records all the way back in 1988 with the "Be Yourself" EP. The band followed that up with the "RIP" LP in 1990 and the "One More Time" EP in 1991, both on Nemesis Records. An appearance on the "Furious World" compilation on Basement Records in 2003 was the band's last release, making this their first new record in over a decade. The band returns with 13 new tracks for fans of Agnostic Front, Bad Religion and Suicidal Tendencies. LP includes digital download. On colored vinyl.

Better Days 7" Irish Voodoo

Named after the University of Nevada Wolf Pack, Wolf City was born in 2009. Calling Reno home, their sound is fast, mean, in your face, but not watered down. Just mean as hell hardcore. On colored vinyl.

MA Glory 7" Six Feet Under

Things move slowly up here in Massachusetts, like maple syrup in winter time. This 7" is no exception. The idea for it was hatched while Blacklisted and Have Heart were on tour in 2008, and finally just now its seeing the light of day. Hows that for progress? Drawing influences from Infest to Mind Eraser, Wolf Whistle's first proper 7" is 11 new tracks clocking in at just over 8 minutes long. That means all rock, no funny business. You can check out two songs from the 7" on the SFU home page, and also the video for "En Attendant Hudon". On colored vinyl.

demo a.d.07 CD-R Wolf Whistle

Ten song demo from WOLF WHISTLE that brings to mind bands like 97A. These guys give it all and seem to be determined not to reach the 1-minute mark with any of their songs. It's amazing that they still contain thick breaks and the mosh part and make it all work. Pat Flynn, singer of HAVE HEART lets it all out here. Intense.
CD-R, 3.00€


demo II 7-Inch Triple B

This is the second demo from Wolf Whistle, the new band of Have Heart singer Pat Flynn. Quite a departure it is too. Fast and raging hardcore, that works well with a bare minimum of melodies. This has new tracks as well as a live set from WERS. Did I mention that these songs are fast?
7-Inch, 4.50€


Private Hell LP Triple B

On their final LP, Wolf Whistle slow down a step to explore the existential dread in the residential areas of their youth. A gruesome true crime story that points the finger at a host of offenders, from the local “Meat Man” to heaven’s own last line of defense: St. Peter. There is little innocence left in this sweaty cul-de-sac of Melvins-esque primal punk. “Private Hell…” is oppressive humidity captured sonically, a detailed account of a specific suburban misery. A bug-zapper hums through the background of 11 songs, as old skeletons get unearthed behind the toolshed of your parents' home. Vocals reverberate like your neighbors' domestic disturbance; a muffled echo off vinyl siding. As you contemplate a swan dive into a drained in-ground pool, you realize 25 minutes have passed. Did you notice the melted ice cream dripping down your arm?

s/t 7" Head 2 Wall

This band, hailing from Chicago and featuring members of hardcore heavyweights Harm's Way, deliver a sort of dark, melodic pop punk/rock, reminiscent of other area legends like Alkaline Trio, Naked Raygun and The Smoking Popes, but with heavy doses of The Cure/Depeche Mode-esque new wave. This band is nothing like their more well-known counterpart musically, but every bit as powerful and emotionally rewarding. 7" includes digital download and is limited to 500 copies.

Only A Mirror LP Animal Style

Wolves At Bay treads similar progressive punk waters as bands such as Small Brown Bike, Balance And Composure, and Make Do And Mend. The quartet builds its songs on a unique foundation of raw enthusiasm and intensity tempered only by a tireless work ethic and thoughtful composition, and "Only A Mirror" impresses with driving rhythms, gruff-yet-tuneful melodies, and dynamic songwriting chops. Prepare yourself for an impressive debut teeming with hard-charging punk anthems, engaging instrumental passages, and an overall sense of urgency and purpose. Vinyl version includes digital download and is limited to 500 copies. On colored vinyl.

Unchanged Warfare CS WSA

The new WON'T STEP ASIDE release is out and it's a great 10 song tape called 'Unchanged Warfare'. Hailing from Austria (Vienna style) and these young hardcore kids play metal-free old school hardcore; think a mixture of 80s hardcore with a modern touch. The lyrics deal with everyday life and some social/political topics (anti-war, hate work etc.).
