AMBUSH

s/t 7-Inch Sent To Destroy

This debut ep is a pleasant surprise once you're able to look beyond the crude hand-drawn cover that makes the JAILBREAK ep look like art by comparison. Six songs of heavy hardcore that should appeal to fans of IRON BOOTS and similar bands. Textbook hardcore that hits all the right spots. Crunchy and heavy breakdowns, chorus parts and enough energy to make it all work. AMBUSH are fed up with some of the things going down in the scene and are not afraid to speak their mind. These kids are true to the core.

WHAT HOPE REMAINS

One Set Fate 7-Inch Courage To Care

With a reputation for rowdy, destructive, unpredictable live performances, WHR are one of the UK's brightest new bands. Playing passionate hardcore influenced by such bands as AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, RIGHT BRIGADE and CARRY ON, these kids keep modern hardcore alive on the isle. Six songs.

R.A.M.B.O.

Bring It! LP Havoc

R.A.M.B.O.'s 'sophmore effort' is a titanic bulldozer of hardcore moshstrocity. Combining the power of epic swedish hardcore like Wolfbrigade and Disfear, the sick mosh of Hatebreed and Madball, with the politics of Crass. 'Bring It' is slower and more melodic than their infamous debut release without compromising their rage and ferocity. The LP comes with a bonus full length DVD with show highlights, tour diary, and instructional presentations. Very satisfying.

INSTILLED

Unfinished Business 7-Inch State Of Mind

Heavy, no bullshit hardcore with pissed off vocals that are basically straight yells, but they really have an interesting edge that gives the band a unique feel. Not what I would call metallic, but it’s definitely thick as hell and hits harder and more moderately paced than what most any of the youth crew types of bands are gonna pull off. There are a few little bits and pieces of melody as well. Lyrics are pretty personal and they definitely make their point most of the time with lines like, 'Fuck love, it only grays with age…'. These seven songs took me by surprise... good stuff.

HAIL SOCIAL

s/t 7-Inch Dine Alone

I expected something completely different from this... what I got are two tracks of 80s- indie rock that's made some college playlists. Mellow enough to chill out to after a night of circle pits and stage dives. Limited to 500 copies, this is a teaser of their upcoming LP and a record even your girlfriend (if you got one) might dig.

DRAW BLOOD

The Calm Before The Storm 12-Inch This Blessing...

This band is unafraid to tackle larger issues that many are afraid to take a stand on, delivering an infectiously anthemic, but pointed social commentary over hard-edged rhythms that are classically hardcore. Draw Blood's debut EP, 'The Calm Before the Storm', brings to mind early American Nightmare and The Suicide File, which is high praise indeed. Available on a one sided 12 inch. The b-side has an etching and the whole thing comes on colored vinyl too. Pleasing to the eye and ear.

CARPENTER ANT/ HEADACHES, The

split 7-Inch Torn Tendons

Both bands are from the Lehigh Valley PA. Carpenter Ant play old school, metallic hardcore complete in style and recording just like this was a late 80s record that everyone would have mail ordered back in the day. A desperate feel comes through in their music, just like punk is supposed to include. The Headaches are a rudimentary (sloppy and simple, yet enjoyable in a DIY sort of way) hardcore band. They have an 80s East Coast US punk/HC influence.

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.

ARRIGT ANTRAEK

s/t 7-Inch Hjernespind

Punk/ hardcore from Copenhagen, Denmark. There must be something in the water up there, since they've got some awesome bands! While Arrigt Antraek aren't as fast as Amdi Petersens Arme or as melodic as No Hope For The Kids, they manage to hold their own amongst their contemporaries. Eight fast songs with melodic parts.

DOUBLE CROSSED

Your Attitude Bites 7-Inch LifeLine

Chicago's DOUBLE CROSSED plays fast, modern, anthemic, energetic straight edge hardcore along the lines of Carry On, Ten Yard Fight and Far From Breaking. Even though they are young compared to many of their contemporaries, their songwriting far surpasses that of most bands in their genre. 'Your Attitude Bites' is six songs of straight forward hardcore that will reaffirm your belief in the spirit of youth. Go!

UPSTAB

s/t 7-Inch Even Worse

CLEVELAND motherfuckers at it again!!!. Following in the proud tradition of this depressing cities shredding hc/punk tradition. Total relentless alcohol and drug infested nihilistic HC/ punk,that will make alot of bands nowadays look like safe garbage or 'cute', music wise hard to describe, but i'd say take some of the older clevo bands (H-100s, GSMF, Inmates, Cider), let em fuck with any early midwest/east bands like Necros, Guns, State and you get the bastard son UPSTAB! Suprising tempo changes and some dirty solos played over mid to fast tempo hc make this worth a listen.

SWITCHBLADE

Featuring Mattias Friberg Of LOGH 7-Inch Icarus

Their latest effort is a spectacular 2 song EP featuring Mattias Friberg from the Swedish Indie Rock band, Logh. His soulful voice, along with additional guitar contribution, add to the seemingly endless depth which Switchblade emplore with this effort. For all those who have been waiting for new Switchblade vinyl, the wait is over. The usual high production values of Deathwish (Icarus is a Deathwish sublabel) are to be found here as well, making this well worth checking out.

SUNPOWER

John Terror 7-Inch Deviant

Ripping fast hardcore/punk from Belgium in the vein of SSD, 7Seconds and Circle Jerks, which means they have a strong punk influence and a melodic edge. This builds on their previous releases and finally establishes Sunpower as a force to be reckoned with. There's more than a little criticism of the hardcore scene, still addressing the same problems as countless other bands years ago. It's not Sunpower who are to blame for that though (or so it seems).

SOLID GROUND

demo 2004 7-Inch Rad Session

SOLID GROUND features X-members of Crush My Calm playing crushing hardcore with some serious mosh breakdowns and sick chorus parts. All members have been active in the hardcore scene for a number of years now and their experience and expertise can be felt all through this impressive debut. These four songs leave you drained, but wanting more. Now their demo is available for the first time on limited colored vinyl. Watch out for their debut record soon. Highly recommended.

SO BE IT

The Wrath Of The Skies 7-Inch Deathwish

The Straight Edge kids SO BE IT join Deathwish with their second ep. Featuring members of Boston hc heroes THINK I CARE and R'N'R, So Be It are no strangers when it comes to uncompromising hardcore. This ups the ante of their first ep. Throw in an amazing production, very slick layout that has become a Deathwish trademark and the fact that this comes on limited edition colored vinyl and you know that you can't possibly go wrong with this.

SNAKE EYES

demo CD 1917

Snake Eyes are a new LA hardcore band featuring members and ex-members of Carry On, Terror, Internal Affairs, and Donnybrook. They play straight up hardcore the way it was meant to be played, full of aggression and power. Fast harcore with heavy breakdowns, the lyrical content is on the bleak and negative side of things, ready to fight. An impressive debut, not to be missed if you're into the bands mentioned above. Five songs on this professionally produced CD.

HOLLOW GROUND

Cold Reality 7-Inch Organized Crime

This Canadian act drops some vicious metallic hardcore in the vein of Hatebreed (especially vocally), though ironically there's both more direct metal here as well as more direct hardcore. Look for short songs that never hit three minutes and plow straight through chugga styled breakdowns, faster old school chord progressions with a few subtly melodic dissonant textures around the edges, some darker metal riffing that at times hits on some Slayer-esque runs, and so on. This also features Andrew from COMEBACK KID doing some guest vocals. Fans of TERROR, HATEBREED and (to a lesser degree) COMEBACK KID, take note. Colored vinyl in stock.
