Resurrectionists Split Lich

HARDCORE/POWER-VIOLENCE. On this nice done split you'll get 6 of the fastest and heaviest songs from RESURRECTIONISTS so far; recorded at the almighty tonmeisterei. On the flipside waiting 11min. of brutal and mean bulldozer style power-violence from LICH (featuring members of BATTLE OF WOLF 359). The record comes in a dark and rough gatefold cover with a screenprint on the frontside.

Bacchus ST

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE. Housed in a gorgeously hefty production, the long-awaited debut LP from Irealnd’s BACCHUS is a tense and hulking assault of millenium-era progressive crusty hardcore. With Elements of FROM ASHES RISE and KYLESA forming a raging, spiralling monument of caustic desperation, this is never reductive. Refusing to take the easy option and revelling in a staunchy progressive approach to hardcore, this is like NEUROSIS raised on amphetamine and tempered with weed: excellent.


DEATH BEFORE WORK messageboard punx on a rope + three

HARDCORE. DEATH BEFORE WORK is a fastcore band from Milano, Italy. You'll get fast killer bandana thrash and hardcore in the vein of VOETSEK, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?, LIFE`S HALT and SPAZZ. The 19 tracks are full of fast and furious hardcore. The limited, one-sided LP comes with a golden screen-print on the flipside.

AGATHA goatness

POST-HARDCORE. Italy’s AGATHA are a full-female band formation, once a trio, now a duo. What they create is a slow, sleazy and pounding mixture of punk and sludge-metal with a grooving and taking-no-prisoners heaviness. Distorted bass, drums and extreme vocals (mainly grunts, growls and screams), dissonant rhythms, elements from hardcore, noise, thrash and drone, and a performance lacking of any overdone eccentrism, flirting with straight-forward primitivism and a basically no-nonsense approach. Nothing more than this yet oh so pure and honest. They lost guitar but found satan. Stoner/sludge/posthc like it was raining bloo

Surroundin​gs ''Concepts''

We're a melodic metal band from Perth, Western Australia.We just posted a new track online titled ''Concepts''


Harm's Way - Isolation

HARDCORE. Over the span of three 7"s and a LP, the sound of Chicago's HARMS WAY evolved from power-violence to trash-styled hardcore and on "isolation", the band's 2nd full-length, they throw sludgy elements of EYEHATEGOD into the mix while still delivering breakdown-laden jams people have come to expect


LinkToNowhere - yearning for something lost

LinkToNowhere from germany are 2 members playing an oldfashioned style
of melodic emohardcore, they call it "sofapunk". This is their first
album released at the DIY and non-profit-label hellfish records.


01 Lifeboat
02 Jitterbug
03 The Long Way Down
04 Empire

06 Wrong Side Of The Town
07 The Pleasure Of Capitalism
08 Tamagotchi


MOLOCH possession

SLUDGE-METAL/HARDCORE. Regarding the music of MOLOCH, it is under the influence of legendary bands like GRIEF, EYEHATEGOD or DYSTOPIA. On "possession" everything is simple, without any musical artifice, but highly effective, and the effect is simply devastating. After listening to these tracks, you feel that a bulldozer just went slowly over you and made you one with the asphalt. MOLOCH brings the heat with super heavy, hateful songs. This is honestly some of the best sludge you've heard in years.



Plebeian Grandstand ÔÇó Bone Dance ÔÇó Divider ÔÇó Three-Way Split

Three bands, three different interpretations of hardcore/punk, two continents, one policy: Destroy.

BONE DANCE (Boise, Idaho, USA) doesn't want to be your friend. The nihilism you'll hear from these self-described "five loud dudes with shitty attitudes", playing their exceedingly raw brand of chaotic hardcore/sludge, will ring a bell whether you're into GAZA or KEN MODE, BOTCH or CURSED. Conceived with a colossal sense of brutality, yet never forsaking their punk ethos, "West" and "Conniver" will further consecrate this band as one to watch. Remember this goddamned name.

No matter how paradoxical it may seem, DIVIDER (Long Island, New York, USA) would prefer to unite rather than to divide. Uniting the sound of more modern filthy hardcore bands with a strong sense of punk emergency, these two tracks ("Gaia" & "Halios Geron" ) introduce Chris Tzompanakis behind the mic, best known for his work with the influential group SKYCAMEFALLING in the early 2000's. If you're into DEADGUY, THE POWER AND THE GLORY, or VISION OF DISORDER, you've found the perfect soundtrack for your next bare-knuckle boxing match.

As for PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND (Toulouse, France), if the shrapnel-laden assault that was "How Hate Is Hard To Define" had you asking for more, this time around there won't be any survivors left to beg for a rematch. If the explosion of screaming and distortion that is "Woe Is Me" isn't enough, then the hallucinatory "Woe Is You", with its NEUROSIS inspired, trance-like drums, and a throbbing bassline that builds to a crescendo which threatens to tip the richter scale, certainly will be. The first time I heard these tracks, I felt like ripping off my eyelids. And I won't be the one.


HELLHORSE decade of dust

HARDCORE. Callusing and fast metal fused with d-beat hardcore, Tucson's HELLHORSE is a unique blend of precision and raw aggression. Lyrically, "decade of sust" paints a bleak and mysterious picture, as much for fans of CELTIC FROST as it is for those of CATHARSIS, RINGWORM and GEHENNA. Members of BLACK TEETH and CONDEMNED.



HARDCORE-PUNK. FERAL BABIES is a hardcore-punk band from Florida. Music is raw, angry and fast but maintains a catchy and melodic vibe to it. Reminiscent of first generation California hardcore acts like CIRCLE JERKS, ANGRY SAMOANS and JODY FOSTER ARMY. Professionally made tapes.


ALASKAN adversity; woe

POST-HARDCORE/METAL. ALASKAN is an atmospheric post-metal band from Ottawa, Canada. "adversity; woe" is their 2nd full-length. ALASKAN established their musical base in "the weak and the wounded" and now with "adversity; woe" they fortified it. This is a major characteristic of a band that gallops to the top with no napoleonic ambitions but by creating a great characteristic personal sound that in the future some bands will "sound like ALASKAN". The artificially stringed instruments still remain heavy as a bulldozer with huge riffs that can drive you mad. The naturally stringed instruments give life to the band’s compositions following the same brutality of their previous release with a little bit more screaming elements.




PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. DEPHOSPHORUS formed in Greece back in 2008 and "axiom" is their 1st vinyl output. Included are 7 songs of what the band has dubbed astrogrind, which is absolutely raging, top-notch grindcore that fluidly blends in elements of black-metal and crust. Imagine CATHARSIS practicing in the room next to BURST. If you stood outside and both bands practicing at the same time, the listenable elements of that recording would probably sound pretty damn close to DEPHOSPHORUS. Expect loads of blasting speed; intense tremolo picking; surging midpaced rhythms; awesome fits of dark, winding dissonance; and occasional bouts of weird, spacey effects. LP comes in a nice gatefold cover.



PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. BIRUSHANAH is an experimental sludge-metal and hardcore band from Osaka, Japan. As well as traditional Japanese music - which is a notable aspect of their sound the band cites NEUROSIS, SWANS, ZENI GEVA, and CORRUPTED (whom bassist Sougyo previously performed with) as influences. DRAIN THE SKY from California consists former members of DIMLAIA and HIS HERO IS GONE. They're collaborate to create visceral, atmospheric, threatening music that seeks to collapse (musical and other) boundaries.


I EXIST II: the broken passage

HARDCORE. Australia's I EXIST have returned to lay waste once again with their 2nd offering of hardcore and doom in "II: the broken passage". Let’s face it, mashups and crossovers can be a trainwreck when it's halfarsed. On "II: the broken passage" I EXIST do it well and set a standard that a lot of bands won't reach on their best day. If you like stoner/doom, it would be hard to ignore. If you like old-hardcore before it was shaken up and became a trend, this album will keep you happy. For fans of THE CURSED, HIGH ON FIRE and Cleveland stuff.


SC get out now

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE. Anthems with rigidity and a force towards resolution: music to bang your head to. Songs with low end and an encompassing trance: it's not how you drive, it's how you arrive. For fans of TORCHE, older HELMET and FLOOR.




INSTRUMENTAL/POST-ROCK/DOOM. Heavy, monolithic instrumental post-rock meets the unfriendly atmosphere of the early SWITCHBLADE and CULT OF LUNA recordings. Dark riffing and spooky organ-vibes team up with a massive bass and drum work. Heavy and excellent produced (Tonmeisterei), with enough room to give every musician his own special place. Some songs are more rocking; think of DOOMRIDERS meets PELICAN, and some songs carry a slight '70s doom and even okkult-spirit. You guys read this over and over, but the 2nd BLCKWVS full-length will be a massive step forward. LP comes with a an eyecatching 350gr thick die-cut cover plus a screenprinted front and a big foldout inlay, black innersleeve.


Awake in Sleep LP 2011

Awake In Sleep have just released their new S/T EP. The EP has 4 tracks and runs for around 31 minutes.The shortest track is on for 5.20 minutes while the longest is a 10.32 minute epic track.Awake In Sleep play a great blend of Sludge/Post Metal music. If your into PELCIAN, ISIS, CULT OF LUNA and NEUROSIS then these guys play the same sort of excellent hard hitting Post-Metal music.



PANZRAM a new mental disorder for youth in disapproval

POST-HARDCORE. Featuring half of the members fom MERKIT, PANZRAM cut through brooding hardcore in vain of BORN AGAINST or MILHOUSE. From shouted to sung to screamed, both members on vocal duty. This single keeps with the concept of humans regaling their pitiful human achievements or originality. The final song on side-b is a PSYCHEDELIC FURS cover of "the fall", a song on the similar topic.



AKUMA Vudú, del ruidoso.

Post-Metal/Rock/Experimental : There are good times for so-called post-rock. Like other genres over becoming a drawer to put all sorts of things, if it was not from the beginning. Long songs, the usual instruments of rock and no voice is enough to be adscrito.Akuma surprise comes with 6 songs with great sound and quality overwhelming songs certainly a new benchmark for the best post rock to come out this year no doubt.


TRAINWRECK if there's light it will find you

HARDCORE. "if there's light it will find you" is the new 4 track MLP by Aachen's vets TRAINWRECK (featuring GLASSES and former EAVES). TRAINWRECK still playing their mix of dark and brooding hardcore. All versions come wrapped in a screenprinted gimmick cover!



AUN black pyramid

AMBIENT/ELECTRONIC. Continuing on the foundations laid with the acclaimed 2009 album, AUN are further blurring the line where earth and space intersect with the ominous floating monolith "black pyramid". AUN still dealing in dark matter, the twisted guitar and electronics mutations find the duo at their most melodic, luminous and accessible yet, but in the world of AUN there is always a very fine line between light and darkness. AUN's singular psychedelic ambient drones laid on "black pyramid" definitely marks this release as some of their best work yet. Heavy glossy covers,



PROGRESSIVE/POST-ROCK. The lineup for A STORM OF LIGHT’s session includes founders Josh Graham and Domenic Seita, Geoff Summers, plus Will Lindsay (WOLVES In THE THRONE ROOM) guesting on guitar, and new singer Zohra Atash. The result is a volcanic display of doom-laden metal, complete with a chilling appearance from the legendary LYDIA LUNCH. This is end time music for people who welcome darkness with open arms. Features covers of JOY DIVISION's "day of the lords" and BIG BLACK's inimitable "kitty empire".


Cenizas - del apocalipsis (2010)

Banda formada en Julio de 2010, grabando y editando para finales
de octubre del mismo año su primer disco, "...del apocalipsis",
que incluye 7 tracks de un poco de crust/metal.




HARDCORE-PUNK. TREMORDS from London, (former FASHION and DIRTY MONEY members) attacking the world with raw hardcore-punk like CAREER SUICIDE or early FUCKED UP. Pro printed tape with colored cover.



Monachus out of the blue

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE. Doom, metal and crust from former ICOS members. Due to artistic differences and a potential lawsuit over their chosen name, 2009 saw the death of swedens ICOS, a band known for its crushing impassioned resonance. In the years that followed, they took the spirit of their former band and worked at creating a larger, more ominous and ultimately more considered sound. This band would become MONACHUS. Capturing an organic timbre that invokes images of these swedes toiling over beloved instruments, their debut album "out of the blue" draws influence from brooding sludge-metal, yet invokes a sense of timeless peace, surging waves of sung and groaled voices and raucous walls of guitars.
