CEREMONY

Zoo LP Matador

"Zoo" marks the jump from Bridge 9 to Matador for Bay Area hardcore punk band Ceremony who let their sound continue to evolve, exploring punk and post-punk traditions with guitars that not only take cues from blazing hardcore bands of days past, but throw nods to Gang Of Four and The Cramps while the vocals recall moments of Wire and PiL, ranging from a melodic howl to a muttered incantation. Vinyl version includes free download of entire album.

CEREMONY

Violence Violence LP Deathwish

Ceremony is a full-scale musical riot spawned from the rotting corpse of Northern California hardcore. Akin to a musical sledgehammer, they are sonically crude, violent and undeniably destructive in their approach; a throwback to the early days of hardcore, when it was defined by pessimism, misery and was a true haven for the downtrodden. In their few years of existence so far, Ceremony has become as popular as they are antisocial, heralded by many worldwide as one of the best hardcore/punk bands to surface in the last decade. Now available again on vinyl. LP includes digital download.

CEREMONY

Rohnert Park LP Bridge Nine

Bay Area, CA's Ceremony is back with their third and most unpredictable full-length album to date: "Rohnert Park." This new album is equal parts aggressive, incendiary and, dare we say it, catchy. Don't let that fool you, though; Ceremony's trademark pissed off punk stomp is apparent on "Rohnert Park" and vocalist Ross Farrar's lyrics and delivery are as fiery as ever. This is awesome. (Colored) vinyl version includes digital download.
LP, 16.00€

CEREMONY

Still, Nothing Moves You LP Bridge Nine

Relentlessly touring for the last three years, Ceremony made a name for themselves with chaotic and violent live shows. Ceremony makes no statements of who they are or what they're trying to be. They are their own powerful and unique force in the world of punk - it's an alluring, challenging, ugly middle finger to those who call themselves rebellious. Now available on colored vinyl with a gatefold cover.

CEREMONY

The L-Shaped Man LP Matador

Ceremony's fifth studio album, "The L-Shaped Man," uses singer Ross Farrar's recent breakup as a platform to explore loneliness and emotional weariness, but it is by no means a purely sad album. Rather than look inward, Farrar uses his experience to write about what it means to go through something heavy and come out the other side a different person. In order to tell Farrar's story, Ceremony has almost completely stripped back the propulsive hardcore of their previous records, turning every angry outburst into simmering despair. It brings to mind some alternate version of Joy Division that hasn't quite lost all hope. It gets close to exploding, but instead plays the shadows, never quite rising above a nervous simmer. The sound is abetted by producer John Reis, who honed his sound in seminal bands like Rocket from the Crypt, Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. Vinyl version includes MP3 download of the album. On colored vinyl.

CEREMONY

In The Spirit World Now LP Relapse

Ceremony makes their Relapse Records' debut with their highly ambitious, new album, "In The Spirit World Now." "In The Spirit World Now" is full of layered sonic fury and anxiety, each song building up to a point and then descending down through a militant, catchy hook. The album marks a milestone for this Northern California punk outfit who has stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth during their storied careerl. Vinyl version includes digital download.

CHAINBREAKER

s/t 7-Inch Vendetta

Alright, here are six more songs from this german powerhouse that will blow you away. Raging, ferocious hardcore, comparable to Negative Approach...

CHAINBREAKER

Hetzjagd Im Nichts LP Vendetta

These guys finally have a full length under their belt. Raging 80's hardcore, pissed and raw. Hardcore punk from Berlin that pulls no punches. The artwork and production values seal the deal. Awesome silkscreened covers and overall recommended!
LP, 10.00€

CHAINBREAKER/ MÖNSTER split

7-Inch Vendetta

Another gem from Vendetta Records. Two tracks from Chainbreaker who play 80s hardcore with pissed german lyrics- raging, snotty and timeless. Mönster add some Portland-influenced hardcore punk which is a bit more on the rocking side. Lyrics and their explanations come wrapped in a really ugly Cover, but I can live with that.

CHAINSAW TO THE FACE

S7T 7-Inch Cowabunga

Long awaited debut EP from CTTF of New Jersey! More than a few things kept this sucker from coming out for sometime but it finally sees the light of day! Harsh, brutal and hate filled east coast grind-violence from these straight edge guys. Violent lyrics & imagery remains the usual theme for this band on this EP (like any of their past material) and its all done in a very non-gimmicky kind of way, which is refreshing. Recording is very punk and the sound is lo-fi,, which is perfect for a record like this. This style of harsh, real 'power violence' is NOT for everyone, so wimps and poseurs need not apply since this is for the real cult freaks. 19 songs in all on this EP, they're influenced by such greats as Plutocracy, Assuck, No Comment and Excruciating Terror who are all bands I'd say if you like and listen to, you should get this record.
7-Inch, 4.50€

CHALLENGE, The

Solid Words demo CD Cycle

THE CHALLENGE deliver some sweet mid 90's influenced hardcore. Original? Not really. But this is done with passion and integrity and some very nice chorus parts that I can't help but love it. A promising debut.
