DEATHCYCLE/ SOLIDARITY PACT split

7-Inch Rok Lok

Deathcycle come raging at you with the guitar duties being handled by none other than Gary from Kill Your Idols fame, and a sound a little more crusty and metal than KYI.

BRING IT ON

Only The Strong Survive 7-Inch A389

Do you remember a time when hardcore was fast, furious and ugly? Let Bring It On take you back to a time when bands like Killing Time and Sheer Terror ruled the CBGB matinees. Blue collar, old school hardcore is whats in store when you cross paths with these Baltimore hardcore veterans. Six tracks of brutal late 80's style NYHC, best described as a cross between Killing Time, Breakdown and Sheer Terror with a little bit of Last Rites thrown in for good measure.

ANSWER

Getting Even 7-Inch Endwell

Five new songs of fast, aggressive straight edge hardcore from these Seattle boys. Hard hitting, anthemic and intense, their new ep builds on their debut release and shows again why it would be foolish to disregard THE ANSWER as 'just another straight edge band'. Colored vinyl available, slick looking layout too.
7-Inch, 4.50€

AFFIRMATION

Never Forget CD Courage To Care

Straight out of the UK comes Affirmation, playing straight edge-styled hardcore in the vein of recent favorites Carry On and Count Me Out. Intelligent, melodic hardcore from Birmingham reminiscent of Turning Point (there's a cover of 'Broken' on here as well). This CD includes the new EP and their demo, 11 songs total.

ONE UP

The Single 7-Inch Broken Glass

This two track single features: 'The More They Stay the Same' b/w 'If it's Here When We Get Back it's Ours' (a Texas is the Reason cover). Over the past three years One Up has matured and become more than just a generic 'edge-band', by adding melody and emotion without losing the aggression and anger that is hardcore. This single marks the end for this Philadelphia, straight edge band. They will be missed. Colored vinyl in stock.

TROUBLE, The

Nobody Laughs Anymore CD Painkiller

THE TROUBLE are trouble, indeed. Tearing apart the Boston punk and hardcore scene from 1995 to 99, THE TROUBLE paved the way for Boston hardcore cornerstones AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, PANIC, and many more. Nobody Laughs Anymore is THE TROUBLE's first LP, first released on GMM records and long since out-of print. But the people have spoken. This record needs to be heard. It is a perfect blend of sweaty punk anthems and in-your-face hardcore, with lyrics telling the tales of disenfranchised Boston youth growing up in a world that doesn't understand them. Although it's 2005, THE TROUBLE's impact can be felt throughout the Boston scene, in the sound of today's band as well as the members themselves. Singer Gibby fronted Boston hardcore outfit PANIC for two years. I listen to this daily.
CD, 10.00€

RITES, The

Pissing On Your Grave 7-Inch Six Feet Under

The new single of fast, rambunctious hardcore from members of Tear It Up and Down In Flames. Similar in style to both bands, early `80s US Influenced hardcore, but with a bit of a harder, tougher sound and more of an 'I Hate You' than 'I Hate Myself' attitude. If you've been unfortunate enough to catch The Rites at one of their handful of shows you know exactly how intense this band is. Screenprinted covers.

ON COURSE/ THOSE WHO REMAIN split

7-Inch Gratitude

Alright! The people that brought you the VAN DAMAGE ep are back with their second release and it's a doozy. TWR come at you with three tracks of powerful and fast hard- core with an angry shouter, nice hooks and just enough melody to keep things going in between the breakdowns. Actually reminds me of Atari at times. Keep your eyes on these guys, they're awesome. ON COURSE hold their own on the split side with four songs of fast and passionate straight edge hardcore. You know where they're coming from with titles like 'Hold On' 'Stand Strong', 'My Friends' and 'An Effort Made'. Good split (hideous cover) and a perfect track record for Gratitude so far. Colored vinyl available.

NO TURNING BACK

Rise >From The Ashes 7-Inch Not Just Words

Starting out in 1997 as five 16-year old kids that wanted to play the music that their NYHC heroes had played in the early days of hardcore, NO TURNING BACK gradually evolved to playing a unique style full of fast breaks, grooving riffs and massive singalongs accompany the personal and tortured lyrics. CD version available from Bridge Nine Records

NAMES FOR GRAVES

Worst Kid Ever 7-Inch SWpecimen 32

Cleveland, Ohio's Names for Graves' sound can be described as nothing like the metal- tinged Cleveland bands that preceded them, but rather taking cues from hardcore's past and present without rehashing the youth crew era. Ex members of Committed, In The Red and Good Clean Fun. The first package is MIA, so sorry about the price tag.

BREAK IT UP

No Sides LP Dead & Gone

Out of the remains of Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon and Voorhees comes Newcastle's Break It Up. This isn't a modern take on hardcore. This is no bullshit, clean youth crew that sounds like it came straight out of 1987. 12 tracks of early O.C.-sounding hardcore in the vein of Insted and Uniform Choice. Way better than their debut ep.
LP, 10.00€

WRECKING CREW

1987-1991 discography CD Bridge Nine

From 1987 until into the '90s Wrecking Crew ruled the Boston and East Coast hardcore scene. Wrecking Crew was a hardcore / metal crossover style band that collapsed upon themselves before breaking up. Most of the bands releases are long out of print, and their debut LP (released originally on Hawker Records, a subsidiary of Roadrunner Records, is out of print AND locked away). This collection is twenty-four songs, composed of rare, out of press and previously never heard gems from demo, live, and EP recordings, as well as a re-recorded version of the classic track 'Why Must They'. Learn another chapter of Boston (and East Coast) hardcore by checking out Wrecking Crew.

TEAR IT UP

Taking You Down With Me LP Havoc

Taking You Down With Me was originally intended to be a 7inch, but the amount of material proved to be too long and the band decided to release it instead as a 45 RPM 12ich. These seven new songs combine the fast thrash that Dead Nation and early Tear It Up were known for with more hard rock/late Black Flag influenced heavy riffage on a few slower numbers. The result is absolutely crushing, like alternating between burst of high energy and a slow relentless pounding.
LP, 10.00€

DROP IT

What The Hell? 7-Inch Western Front

'What the Hell' is the debut record from Drop It's debut record. Word has it that these guys covered Black Flag and the Circle Jerks in the same set and won the hearts of the Western Front family right away. Drop It seamlessly blend the best aspects of mid 90's hardcore with what's going on today for a sound of their own- Snotty and angry hardcore with greath breakdowns.

DEGENERICS, The

The Final Chapter 7-Inch Don Giovanni

The very last release from the awesome Degenerics. Started in Central New Jersey in the mid 90's the Degenerics started out playing simple hardcore punk paying ohmage to the Bad Brains and transformed into something more intense. Hardcore punk with melodies and agression, this made me dig out their previous releases again. Too bad that this is their last release, two demo'd songs pressed onto wax. A worthy legacy, as good as anything they've done.

CARRY THE CASKET/ MISTAKE, The split

7-Inch Prime Directive

Four new tunes from Orange County's The Mistake and three from Carry The Casket. Both bands are pissed and stray from the mold with their angry rants against their government, god and all kinds of 'fucks'. Ready to raise hell and not afraid of making enemies. Fast hardcore and mosh parts for fans of LOS CRUDOS and LEFT FOR DEAD. Songs include 'Pretty Much Fuck You All', 'Fuck', 'God Fucked You', 'Fuck You And The Horse You Rode In On'- and no, I'm not talking about the Dwarves here. On crucial colored wax too.
