50 LIONS/ DOWN TO NOTHING split

CD 6131

On their first trip south of the equator, Down To Nothing met up with Byron Bay's 50 Lions. By the end of this tour, Richmond's road dogs and Australia's favorite sons found their way into each other's top 8. In between their intense touring schedules, both bands found the time to write three of their best songs to date and document the aftermath. Side A features Down To Nothing conquering the world with their unique brand of metal tinged hardcore, whose intensity is matched by none. Coming through on Side B is 50 Lions, who are quickly making a name for themselves with their signature mid paced NYHC sound, all while upping the ante by adding blazing riffs and even harsher vocals. By now, anyone who knows anything knows who DTN is, but here's your chance to get your seat in the front of the 50 Lions bandwagon. On colored vinyl.

The God Complex CD Panic

Always pushing forward and reinventing themselves, Another Breath is back to turn heads with their newest release, 'The God Complex.' The record is an explosive 11-song monster that has surpassed everything that Another Breath has done in the past.

BANE

The Note CD Equal Vision

To say that Bane has been a driving force in the hardcore scene for the last decade would be an understatement. The band is synonymous with classic, sincere hardcore and passionate live performances followers still talk about to this day. Enter Bane's first studio album in three years - 'The Note'. An unabashedly unapologetic 10 song wake up call to everyone who has somehow lost their way and become disillusioned with the state of today's underground music scene. Introspective and critical lyrics instead of the ever-popular slogans and their likewise mature musical style rewards multiple listens.

BLACK SS

Foreign Object CD Reaper

With Black SS, what you see is what you get. No bullshit, no posing, just pure hardcore. Black SS is a band whose only goal is to remind the world that hardcore is supposed to be the rawest, most honest form of punk. This band is an outlet for 4 pissed off people who have never, and will never, let go of the anger towards society that defined their youth. A middle finger to the mainstream that continues to infiltrate our scene and a punch in the face to all the empty - fashionable hardcore. Black SS say what they mean and mean what they say. And if you dont like it, tough shit. For fans of: Slapshot, Negative FX, Kill Your Idols & Negative Approach. I love it.

BLOOD RED

Bad To Worse CD State Of Mind

Four songs from this Long Island based group featuring ex-members of Inside and Silent Majority. This ep has a crazy layout with hand screened bags, four different colors of vinyl, an 11x17 inch poster, and bonus CD. Musically, they kind of remind me of the underrated Silent Majority.

BOLD

The Search: 1985-1989 CD Revelation

The Search: 1985-1989 fittingly illustrates the journey of BOLD from the raw energy and passion of the Crippled Youth EP, to the milestone straight edge hardcore album Speak Out, and finally to their vastly progressed swan song, Looking Back. This complete discography allows for some insight into the development of BOLD as a band and as people - the lyrics and music move together, a synchronicity that marks the growth of the band. Drawing influences from the bands that came before them like MINOR THREAT, SSD, and DYS, BOLD burst out on the scene with something to prove, and more importantly, something to say. Having the Crippled Youth ep on CD is really cool.

BREAKER BREAKER

Out Of Service MCD Martyr

This final EP is without a doubt Breaker Breaker's finest material, a step above their well received demo ep on Bridge 9 Records. Breaker Breaker was straight edge, but avoided being pigeon holed. Their mix of angry hardcore, and fast energetic punk rock set them apart from the pack. This record will give them the recognition they deserve. Too bad they're no longer around, I would've liked to see more vinyl (lyrics wouldn't have hurt either).

CAPITAL

Homefront CD Revelation

 Long Island's Capital take a fresh approach to melodic hardcore/punk. Their sound is a mix of many familiar elements blending the melodic style of Dag Nasty, the punk aspect of Bad Religion, and post hardcore tendencies of Quicksand. Stemming from quintessential Long Island hardcore bands Silent Majority and The Reformation, Capital is defined as much by their experiences as their musical influences.

Breaking Point CD Fight Fire With Fire

It's been out for a while, but I just got it in. Coalition hits hard on their debut full-length. Their music has its roots in 80's straight edge hardcore, but with a more modern, new school approach, adding a heaviness and punch that will undoubtedly have you kickboxing in your room. 12 songs with all the breaks and mosh parts you could ask for.

Elliot Babin, drummer of Touche Amore and DNF, has been busy. Since 2009, he has found himself on a demanding eight-months-out-of-the-year tour schedule.

The result is Dad Punchers, a nostalgic, sometimes searing, dissection of Babin's life and the people he has met in his time abroad.
