"Consider b/w Wave Of Mutilation" was recorded by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). The A-side, "Consider," is a discordant and strikingly aggressive song.

YOUR SPIRIT DIES

The Process Of Grief 10" Blasphemour

Your Spirit Dies is a new South Carolina metalcore band featuring Remembrance's Brandon Byars, Soul Press' Mike Fuller and Keagan McChesney, and Hopesick's Tyler Dorman and Matt Kucek. It's no surprise that Your Spirit Dies is already stirring up some buzz due to their members' past bands, but "The Process Of Grief" doesn't sound quite like anything these guys have done in previous projects. They're tapping into that moment in metalcore circa 1999, where bands were starting to embrace better production and a slightly more melodic side, but still staying true to the genre's hardcore roots and not going as full-on melodic as some of the genre's soon-to-be-very-popular bands would go just a year or three later. 10" includes digital download and is limited to 300 copies on colored vinyl.

BIG CHEESE

Punishment Park LP Quality Control

A well-oiled machine, Big Cheese present to you their trailblazing debut full-length, "Punishment Park," which nods to sounds from the demo and 7" but pushes the boat out even further, incorporating thrashier riffs and hard-rock licks akin to Motorhead. You can feel the power as soon as opener "Pennine Scrubs" hits, taking you on a journey through unpredictable riff after atomic bomb-inducing breakdown. There is no room to breathe here.

PAYDAY

London Straight Edge 12" Quality Control

The irate and gloomy sounds of Cleveland, London, Stoke-on-Trent, and any other hub of negative reinforcement in-between, needs a soundtrack to get across a message that words could never convey. ‘Second to None’ from infamous London Straight Edge band Payday, est. 2016, is one such soundtrack, giving no space for a breather whilst providing a realisation that life is for living on the edge now or never, and never is not an option. From the opening title track to the crawling ‘Are You Alone?’, that holds on with scraping nails as it fades slowly into oblivion, Payday provide lessons learned from growing up in The Big Smoke. Vocalist Marco Abbatiello lets you know that any slip ups will prove fatal, such as on Touch Ah Button, a nod to the UK Hip Hop classic of the same name, as dive bombs soar to heights that will make any sellout reach for their nappies.The message may be obvious, the melee of influences to get it across is anything but for a straight edge band in 2019, such as Ringworm and Integrity. Whilst others shout about positivity, Payday are living in hell without the comfort of escapism, just cold, hard and ugly truths, such as on ‘The Maze’, ‘Whitewash I’ and ‘Whitewash II’. They ask the hard questions with your answers not wanted. On colored vinyl.

FUSE

This Segregation Will End 12" Quality Control

“Lion City Hardcore. "This Segregation will end" a 9-song 12" EP created by FUSE from Singapore is 100% hardcore concentrate. I don't need to mention similar sounding bands, influences or FFO type shit. FUSE bring a contemporary stab at a classic style while injecting their own unique worldview. You've heard hardcore like this before, you like hardcore like this, self described as "punked up hardcore, hard but not like those tough guy hardcore bands", they produce 8 songs and an intro that are worth your time (personal favorite is "Poison"). Music aside, because hardcore is so much more than what you play, it's how you play, and more importantly it's the reasons why you play. The Extracurriculars - FUSE never miss an opportunity to shout out their local scene, they put energy into building up their hometown, and they support their peers. Bottom line, they fucking care about creating their own space for themselves and their friends and that's all I want in a hardcore band.” 
John Scharbach, Give & Shining Life Press 
FUSE formed as a 5 piece in 2017 and released a 2 song promo tape the same year. It's 2020 and they return with a new drummer to deliver 7 new songs in addition to "Poison" and "Deceit" from their 2017 promo. This masterpiece was recorded at 416 studios, mixed to perfection by Tom Howard and mastered by Will Killingsworth. The record is rounded out with art and layout by the infamous Nicky Rat. FFO: Warzone, Floorpunch, The Rival Mob, Restraining Order

MASTERMIND

Bad Reaction 7" Quality Control

London has been fanning the flames of hardcore punk relentlessly, producing some of the best music of the genre for a while now. Enter Mastermind, four young guns kicking it up a notch or five. Starting in 2018, and after a well received demo on Cold Comfort, here comes their scorching new release, ‘Bad Reaction’ EP, on Quality Control HQ Records. Prepare to have your mind mastered in the art of the wildest hardcore songwriting, where a 3 minute song can keep you engaged throughout and doesn’t seem out of the norm. Karim Newble, also the resident artist of the band, takes you through the waviest of riffs that remind you of the crazy end of late 80s NYHC, from such legends as Rest in Pieces and Killing Time. Meanwhile vocalist Jon Osborne might be the long lost son of Jeff Perlin growling along to the rhythm section, seemingly out of control with one beat hook after another, pulling everything together.

VILE SPIRIT

Scorched Earth LP Quality Control

Scorched Earth marks the long awaited debut LP from the UK’s ultimate misfit squad, Vile Spirit. After well loved demo and promo tapes, Scorched Earth marks a major step up in terms of musical landscape and craft as members have sharpened their teeth touring Europe and being active members of the UK hardcore punk scene. Somehow they have managed to sew together influences such as United Mutation, Integrity and Black Metal into a noisy mass of hard as hell tunes with fuzzed out guitars burning your ear drums whilst being punched to death by relentlessly rolling drums excelling at unpredictable rhythmical directions. Meanwhile mid-tempo songs like Going Home march along, snarling in the darkness, creating an atmospheric backdrop for those who prefer to awaken at night. Vocalist Ben summons a cynical view of the world, conjuring tales of the survival of mankind and a contempt for the world.Bursting onto the UK hardcore punk scene three years ago the members have never ceased to play in and create numerous bands such as Gutter Knife, Saliva, and Chubby and the Gang. They originally formed part of the new generation of Brighton punks re-energizing the scene there alongside bands like State Funeral, Never and label mates Imposter, whilst members finished high school or started University. Joining the band on second guitar is Rory O’Neill, singer of Imposter, and responsible for the artwork on Scorched Earth.
Enjoy, and be damned upon the scorched Earth.

INSTRUCTOR

Demo 2019 CS Quality Control

Instructor is a new band from Brussels, Belgium bringing you hard vibes like Kickback and Cro-Mags adding their own take to the current crop of bands exploring late 80s New York Hardcore. Born out of wanting to power up a French-speaking Belgian HC scene, which has long been overshadowed by it's Flemish counterpart, this group also started putting on DIY HC-Punk shows in their city, putting Brussels HC back on the map!

STAGES IN FAITH

Delside LP Quality Control

STAGES IN FAITH have been carefully crafting a post-hardcore sound in London since 2017. Stylistically rare masterclass of melody and restraint from STAGES IN FAITH on their debut LP. This band inhabits the moments of departure and reflection that seems to have affected so many of the bands that worked on pulling hardcore out of the cataclysmic drilling directness of the explosion of punk, moving the formulaic into calculated musicianship and off centered splashes of color and emotion. Sounding like a too hot high school summer under the umbrella of GOVERNMENT ISSUE, AMERICAN STANDARD, QUICKSAND, a rumor of Southern California hardcore, and a whiff of early pop-punk. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

AMERICAN NIGHTMARE

Life Support b/w Left For Dead 7" Deathwish

"Life Support" is a brand-new, two-song release from hardcore legends American Nightmare. The A-side contains the title track and confidently expands upon the jangly proto-punk leanings hinted at on previous releases while retaining their trademark angst. Having covered MC5, Black Flag, and the Germs, this should come as no surprise, while the B-side features a fantastic rendition of the classic "Left For Dead," originally recorded by Boston, MA's Lemonheads.
On colored vinyl.

FIDDLEHEAD

Get My Mind Right b/w Stay In The Room 7" Run For Cover

"Get My Mind Right b/w Stay In The Room" is a new two-song single from Boston, MA's Fiddlehead. The title track explodes with vocalist Patrick Flynn's screamed plea, "Help me," leading off the song's themes of helplessness and broken promises with the call and response chorus of "You said you'd help me get my mind right." B-side track "Stay In the Room" features a song-long, dreary guitar lead and pummeling drum beat that channels bands like Rites Of Spring and Embrace. On colored vinyl.

Limited edition of 500 copies.
LP, 20.00€

TRUE FORM

Control 7" I.O.U. Records

Jacksonville, FL's True Form is another one of Florida's new breed of powerful hardcore, blending metallic, '90s-hardcore buzz with a NYHC groove, somehow bringing to mind both "Best Wishes"-era Cro-Mags and Strife, with vocals very reminiscent of Tre from Hounds Of Hate.

LIFE SUPPORT

Die Like A Man 7" Youth Attack

There’s no horror that we don’t create ourselves. In a world where success is achieved through the sufferings of others, our souls are but scraps floating in and out of corpses, blurring the line between the dead and the living. LIFE SUPPORT serves as an antidote to our waking death with a command to view mortality as a chance for good, as all else is a fantasy poisoning the heads of men. 
Denver HC legend James Trejo and Mark McCoy team up for this 5-song debut of pounding American hardcore, recorded by audio master Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios. 
On colored vinyl.
