HEAVY HEARTED

s/t 7" Heart In Hand

HELLHOLE

s/t 7" Off The Books

This is hardcore punk stripped down to its bare bones- brief yet memorable songs with smart, simple structure and bleak lyrics. Burly bass sound on this, too- very fitting to the lumbering breaks in certain songs. And I am not exaggerating regarding the lyrics. Judging by what's on the sheet here, their singer shouldn't be allowed to have shoelaces, let alone be mingling with the public. No cheesy Outbreak fakery, bullshit poetry or heartbreak- this is raw, twisted hatred. I guess living in a college town like New Brunswick will do that for you. If you missed out on Tear It Up and Shark Attack, here's your chance to see a bastard son mix of those sounds in action. First pressing 500 on clear vinyl. 2nd hand

HENCEFORTH

An Ambush Among Friends 7" Positive & Focused

This outfit from the city of Amsterdam has a sound of their own, it is old school hardcore but with some unique modern influences and a lot of melodic parts. If you insist on a comparison: Bane, As Friends Rust, old Ignite and some of the Rivalry bands come to mind. Four songs on colored vinyl. 2nd hand

HOW WE ARE

s/t 7" Out Of Sight

This is the debut release from a new band from Rochester, NY. Featuring memebers from the underrated DISASTER, these six songs have a similar sense of urgency and intensity. Melodic and passionate, you'll realize soon that this is not just another hardcore band, but a way for these kids to express themselves. This means a lot to them and it shows. Naturally, I'm impressed (and can't wait for their full length to hit). 2nd hand

IN DESPERATION

The Floods 7" Heart In Hand

The new EP from IN DESPERATION should appeal to a diverse audience of listeners. Although relatively young, they have developed a name for tehmselves by keeping their brand of Hardcore full of passion and energy. Their music is edgy and aggressive, but still catchy as hell.

They'll be replaced by the regular version once they're gone. 2nd hand

IN DESPERATION

Ghost Town, America 7" Slam Rat

These guys grew up in a small town outside of Sacramento. Influenced by avariety of bands from From Born Against and Ashes Rise to Modern Life is War, they've managed to record an impressive debut release. Describing themselves as a melodic hardcore band, but with a darker lyrical approach isa pretty accurate description. Featuring members and Ex-members of Madhouse Disciples, Trash Talk and Dance for Destruction. Definitely check this out if you're down with 'modern hardcore'. 2nd hand

IN STRIDE

Place Of Decay 7" Bottled Up

Rain City, Vancouver BC's In Stride present their debut EP for Bottled Up Records, a seven track straight edge hardcore onslaught that's fast and tight, with plenty of slowed down mosh beats and stagedive opportunities, sounding a bit like an updated Floorpunch mixed with current contemporaries like Outbreak and Down To Nothing. On colored vinyl. 2nd hand
7", 3.00€

INSTILLED

Unfinished Business 7" 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.
USED copy on MINT GREEN vinyl.

INTERNAL AFFAIRS

Deadly Visions 7" Malfunction

After releasing their stellar (and critically acclaimed) self-titled full length in 2005, Internal Affairs returns with 'Deadly Visions,' a collection of songs that shows they still have what it takes to continue to be at the top of the best bands currently residing in Southern California. 'Deadly Visions' shows no signs of the band slowing down, taking their lightning- fast yet impressively hard sound and mixing it with Corey Williams' patented 'fuck yeah' lyrics. Recorded at Blood Tracks (with Nick Jett from Terror) and mixed by Paul Miner.
Limited prerelease cover, yellow vinyl.

IRONCLAD

s/t 7" Dead & Gone

nothing to hide. These 5 songs are HARD and will get you moshing, guaranteed.

Distance. If you like your hardcore genuine, this is for you.

KILLTRAITORS

s/t 7" Reflections

Hailing from The Hague, political capital of Europe, Killtraitors brings newschool agressive hardcore at its best. Music filled with anger and despair with personal heartfelt lyrics. Dramatic and powerful riffing drawing influences from the early ‘90s (bands such as Threadbare, 108, Quicksand and Unbroken) but still standing firm in today’s modern hardcore scene.
USED copy on GREEN vinyl.

LET DOWN

Sacrifice Me 7" Six Feet Under

Hated by many, loved by few, and not even respected by themselves, Let Down has blazed a warpath across the United States by proving themselves to be too fast for the hardcore kids, yet too mosh oriented and straight edge for the punks. They have left a trail of blood (mostly their own) across both coasts and managed to alienate literally thousands of people over the last three years. Let Down's third EP (and Six Feet Under debut), may be their best work to date, but it is in no way a step forward in maturity. There is no hint of post hardcore on this four song raper, just a wanton blend of their original sound with more influence from '81 Boston and '91 Cleveland. Still existing on their own terms and playing by their own rules, Let Down may be the final hope for Straight Edge hardcore in 2007. On colored vinyl. 2nd hand

LION OF JUDAH

Soul Power 7" Lockin Out

From the birthplace of hardcore, DC's LION OF JUDAH prove they owe just as much to I Against I - era BAD BRAINS as they do to early FUGAZI. Formed in late 2004, LION OF JUDAH delivers their musically and lyrically thought-provoking debut EP Soul Power. Sticking to their DC roots of musical creativity and political aesthetics, LION OF JUDAH shines amongst the sea of mindless and boring modern hardcore acts. With extensive tour plans after the EP's release, LION OF JUDAH will most certainly turn heads and open the eyes of the average hardcore fan in 2005. 2nd hand.
