TEAMKILLER/ BLEED INTO ONE split

7-Inch Dead Serious

Described by the label as the hardest and angriest band to surface from the south-west in years, Bleed Into One are back with two new songs and a sound that transcends Hardcore stereotypes. Mix up DEATH THREAT and HATEBREED with the spirit of INSIDE OUT and the CRO-MAGS. Music is plain and simple hardcore with a frontman that must be MIKE JUDGE's brother.Teamkiller have managed to turn the european hardcore world on it’s head in the past few months. The result of a coalition of current Sidekick & Absidia members brings us a mixture of hard, moshable and uncompromising hardcore with and old school touch. Nice packaging job and on colored vinyl.

SCARLET LETTER, The/ SUICIDE PARTY split

7-Inch Vendetta

New tracks from The Scarlet Letter are always a cause for celebration if you're willing to be sucked into their bastard hybrid of fast hardcore and awesome musicanship. The lyrics are more sophisticated than most out there, and manage to retain a lyrical quality that elevates all their tracks to something very personal and passionate. Music that comes from the heart. The split side features three blasts from Suicide Party who play fast hardcore in a more traditional (but intensive) way. No lyrics for those though.

MURDER WEAPON

Nervour Wreck MCD Martyr

Debut EP featuring ex-Dead Serious and current Down to Nothing members. Expect an eleven minute anger management session with elements pulled from the late '80s NYHC scene into modern day hardcore. Tough, no frills hardcore heavy enough to punch through whatever's in your way. Their 'take no prisoners' approach definitely works for me- I've liked this more than expected Vinyl might be in stock later, but will have less songs.

DISASTER

Holy Ghost Can Suck It MCD Disaster

Yet another great band that broke up to soon. They've laid down five new songs for this self-released (and sold out) CD before embarking on their summer tour. Listening to this makes me wish that they'd still be together, because these guys move my heart as well as my feet. How come they're no longer around while some crappy bands last forever? Filled to the brim with sadness, despair and an overwhelming energy as well as a feeling for catchy hooks, they leave behind a proud legacy. Screenprinted covers.

DAMAGE DONE, The

City Of Hope MCD Rival

This is the last recording from the Damage Done. Upon deciding to break up, they went into the studio and emerged 2 days later having put down 5 unreleased songs of hope, anger, love, life, and laughter. This record blows away all prior releases. Disregard heavy production, these are 5 raw tracks of phenomenal hardcore to remember them by. Not available on vinyl, but essential listening.

D.S.B.

No Fight, No Get 7-Inch Deranged

Finally the repress from this Japanese classic. Previously realeased on Devour in 1996, it's been a while since this has been in press. This is their first vinyl release and believed by most to be their best. Four top notch Japanese hardcore punk tracks.

MILES BETWEEN US

When It Counts CD Think Fast!

This Ottawa, Ontario group dishes out hardcore the way it should be, fast and furious, with plenty of breakdowns. Five songs played with a classic Chain Of Strength meets Judge feel. And you thought the Hanson brothers were Canada's only worthwhile export. This is good enough to warrant buying a CD (because there'll be no vinyl).

LAST CHANCE, The

s/t MCD Dead & Gone

Sincere Straight Edge hardcore from the UK on this six song CD, which reflects the bands love of traditional straight edge hardcore and their desire to create something new.

Look for them on tour soon.

NEW GRANADA

s/t 7-Inch Lengua Armada

A good blend of traditional hardcore with some of the modern (not emo) hardcore sound. Choppy and erratic tempos, thick guitar, and urgent vocals. Melodic and with a definite DC influence (second generation of bands), this not your typical LA release, but I really like this a lot. Reminds me of HATED at times. Give this a try.

RAMMER

Monstroyer 7-Inch Deranged

Featuring their best two tracks from their 2nd demo, Rammer play thrash metal comparable to At The Gates. Amazing musicianship, sick throaty vocals and top notch production. Beautifully packaged in a Japanese theme similar to some of the old layouts by Canadian Metal label Banzai. The new line up for this Toronto based band features ex-members of the legendary Uranus, Chokehold and Left For Dead. Limited to 500 copies.
