FREE AT LAST

What's Inside Four Walls CS Mosher's Delight

The passionate and energetic young men in Free At Last, and the vibrant Springfield, MO scene that they represent, appeared out of nowhere back in the summer of 2013, when the band released the remarkably assured “Pave Your Way” 7” on Chicago’s Dog Years Records and began touring all over the country. Now they’ve teamed with Moshers Delight to bring you a new demo, “What’s Inside Four Walls,” whose four songs combine high-energy riffing and emotional urgency in a potent formulation worthy of comparisons to Against The Wall. The intros are spine-tingling, the fast parts are pummeling, and the vocals are adamantly sincere. These songs leave FAL’s old material in the dust and solidify the band as one of the most promising in USHC.

FURY

Paramount CS Triple B

At the apex of Fury's short and startling rise from a providential birth in late 2013 through era-defining performances at America's Hardcore fest in 2014 and 2015, the Orange County, CA five-piece has delivered "Paramount," a debut full-length album of grace, erudition and effortless virtuosity that guarantees Fury's induction into the tiny fraternity of epochal hardcore bands - e.g., Embrace, Unbroken, Mental - in whose sonic singularity and aesthetic intelligence the best minds of successive generations have seen themselves reflected. "Paramount" is impossible to characterize in the usual terms of A-meets-B direct influence: maybe you hear Burn, maybe you hear Outburst or Beyond or Supertouch, but no combination of such references conveys the subtlety of the songwriting, the precision of the musicianship or the ferocity of Jeremy Stith's vocal performance, by way of which one encounters the best written and most cleverly phrased hardcore lyrics in recent memory.

FURY

Promo 2017 CS Quality Control

Orange County’s Fury continue their unique blend of hardcore song-writing on this first release since their massive genre-defining LP ‘Paramount’, with two new tracks for their upcoming follow up LP and a cover of the often overlooked band, Ability. Fans of ‘Paramount’ will be pleased to hear more of those beautifully crafted elements of Burn, Outburst, Beyond every so subtly entwined. Track ‘America’ showcases the band’s ferocious side, with a guitar hook that catches you immediately, and huge crew back up vocals. Meanwhile ‘Lost in the Funhouse’ is more reflective and melodic, with the inclusion of sung vocals in the background that pull you into an expansive dynamic soundscape that Fury are known for. With that in mind, the cover is given such love, respect and attention, in its diverse parts, that one can be forgiven for not realising it was originally by a different band from LA in 2008, when a very different hardcore sound ruled the waves.
Whilst the American version of this tape, self-released by the band, is donating it’s digital and physical proceeds to Planned Parenthood, the European release on Quality Control Records is donating to WAR - Women Against Rape and BWRAP - Black Women's Rape Action Project.

GOVERNMENT FLU

Tension CS Flophouse

Government Flu are are a hardcore punk band from Warsaw, Poland that play a really cool mix of classic early 80's US style HC, hard-hitting burly hardcore and hints of old Polish punk like Dezerter and Post Regiment in their fast parts. This tape was released as an American version of their upcoming LP for their US tour around Damaged City Fest in Washington, DC. Government Flu proudly made history as the first Polish punk band to ever tour the United States. It's impressive how tight this band is, both live and recorded. As with all punk and hardcore, the quality of the drumming is ultimately what determines the quality of the band and with European legend WOLFI rocking the kit, this does not disappoint in the slightest.

HOTHEADS

Demo CS Just A Audial

New York Hardcore is devolving at an alarming rate... reverting back to the primordial mess of hyper speed riffs, garbage can drums, and consequential distortion. Before the word "punk" became a stigma for weakness and neanderthal metal reigned supreme, there was the sheer power of loud-fast-rules and slamming on the bridge. Hotheads do that. Like it or you dumb.
Members of Creem, Krimewatch, and NYC Headhunters. Highly Recommended!

Think hooks for days, and beats that know how to get you moving. This being NWOBHC however, there is also a touch of Voorhees, Oi and UK82 punk in the mix, tied together with a proper snotty vocal and lyrics exploring the psychology of power and violence.

ISOLATION

Demo CS Cut The Cord

Hailing from Münster, Germany are a hardcore four-piece consinsting of guys who have been or are involved in Short Fuse, Annotation or Beneath The Wheel. After their debut 7" here's their latest cassette release, that delivers four brand new tunes. This band plays a really primal brand of hardcore, that's all about anger and frustration. Isolation are the opposite to the modern sound of intellectual post-rock and screamo influenced hardcore. Their songs are fast, but not too fast and they definitely know, who how to add groovy and crushing midtempo parts. The recordings offer a slight Oi! influence and they are fronted by some super gnarly vocals. If you dig Iron Cross, 86 Mentality und Sheer Terror. you'll probably also be digging this.

KOMPLOTT

Sei Vivo, Sei Morto A Nessuno Importa CS Flophouse

I met a few of the guys from Komplott when they toured America with their other band, Holy. Once I heard Komplott I was blown away by the relentless d-beat buzzing chainsaw guitars, furious drums, driving bass and harshly shouted vocals with the reverb at 11. As an Italian man, myself, I was extremely excited to hear something of this quality coming out from my homeland. This release is simply brutal.
