INSTANT ASSHOLE / MOUTH SEWN SHUT
HARDCORE-PUNK. Oakland's INSTANT ASSHOLE brings 4 quick witted fast hardcore-punk jams. Boston's MOUTH SEWN SHUT throw down 2 crushers in the same vein as their other band, TOXIC NARCOTIC. No reggae grooves on this one, just straight fast punk delivery. Essential punk split - just awesome!
live at cbgb's (2005/NEW MUSIC REVOLUTION)
SXE-HARDCORE. Out-of-press for a couple years. After breaking up in 1991 INSTED returned in the Summer of 2004 to play 5 reunion shows in celebration of their discography CD. Three shows on the East-Coast, and 2 on the West Coast. On June 27th, 2004 INSTED played the legendary CBGB in New York City and the show was recorded and documented for this release. "live at cbgb's" contains 18 classic songs filled with energy and positivity.
proud youth 1986-1991 (2004/INDECISION)
SXE-HARDCORE. The 100% complete discography for one of Southern California's straight-edge pioneers. A 44 song retrospective that includes 4 never before released tracks as well as both their full-lengths, their 7", and original demo tape. INSTED were one of the most prominent straight-edge bands of the late '80s scene, playing what would now be considered classic hardcore with an ultra positive message.
fire reflects in ashes (2004/GARDEN OF EXILE)
METALCORE. Agressive thrash-metal combined with heavy mosh parts. All drenched with a melodic North European touch and American brutality. Mix THE HAUNTED, ARCH ENEMY with GOD FORBID, UNEARTH and HATEBREED.
olympus mons (2012/KAPITÄIN PLATTE)
POST-ROCK. "olympus mons" is the 2nd album from this Munich-based band with a fantastic mixture of indie-prog-post-rock between FUGAZI, MOGWAI and MOTORPSYCHO. Limited, handnumbered edition includes a digital download card.
s/t (2010/(KAPITÄN PLATTE)
POST-ROCK. INSTRUMENT is a Munich based post-rock band. They formed out of the ashes of COSMIC CASINO. On their self-titled debut they serve 9 fantastic tracks. Soundwise it's a beautiful mixture of OCEANSIZE post-rock and MOTORPSYCHO psycho-prog-rock. This is an album that explores every emotion, sweeping the listener up in its beauty, its wholeness, and its musical greatness. The limited to 600 copies DoLP is hand-numbered and comes with a bonustrack, a nice silk-screen cover and a MP3 download code.
PUNK-ROCK. Still retaining some of that Southern California beach punk influence as shown on the 7" and demo, the band has also taken more additional cues from the real surf-rock genre, KBD punk and obscure rock 'n' roll in general. Its hard to describe it really apart from a few obvious nods and this record does stand on it's own. This band is part of the very amazing Rotcore scene, for the uninitiated that's Rochester NY. Look it up because they're churning out some gems. Per band's request there is no color vinyl, insted nostalgic full-color brown interior cardstock covers.
the cure for the truth (2009/VENDETTA)
DOOM-HARDCORE. Finally coming up with their 1st full-length, this multicultural band creates an ugly bastard of BLACK SABBATH metal, hardcore and sample-loaded atmospherical noise passages. Sheer heavy riffs, punishing drums and stomach-deep bass-humming over which a tortured female voice expresses both hate and desperation roll slowly, but unstoppable towards the overwhelmed listener. Just as KYLESA are leaving their path with their recent album, INSUICIETY are ready to take over the crown of heavy tribal punk - or in other words: imagine "souls at zero"-era NEUROSIS meets DAMAD. Comes with superb foldout-cover.
INSULT / RAMPANT DECAY
HARDCORE. Brand new split release between 2 of Boston's most despised bands. INSULT plays no frills in-your-face fastcore while RAMPANT DECAY plays beer-soaked crossover that incorporates a volatile combination of thrash, crust-hardcore and sludge. Strictly limited to 500 copies.
s/t (2009/PUNKS BEFORE PROFITS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This is some in-your-face fast as fuck hardcore from small town Michigan. This was recorded back in the days in 1985 and shows that typical european LÄRM- and HERESY style, that was happening around this time. Comes with the original artwork, inlay and tracks. Limited to just 500 copies, so act fast.
violence in our minds (2009/CRUCIAL RESPONSE)
HARDCORE. The INSURANCE RISK discography LP titled "violence in our minds". It compiles the entire recorded output of INSURANCE RISK. Both 7"s - 18 songs of Boston styled hardcore. Finally a band that does add a different flavor to the whole revival of the '80s. The music fits the lyrics fits the sound... you got it? Completely remastered and repackaged, the LP also comes with some liner notes.
Never surrender (2008/BASEMENT)
PUNK-ROCK. THE INSURGENCE began in 2004 in the rain soaked city of Seattle, quickly earning a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the Northwest. Gaining such attention landed them support slots for such heavy hitters as RANCID, DROPKICK MURPHYS, CIRCLE JERKS, SUBHUMANS and STREET DOGS just to name a few. They seamlessly blend high-energy punk rock with pumped up rock 'n' roll, creating a volatile blend of bands like THE CASUALTIES, DROPKICK MURPHYS and ZEKE.
Inside every kid ... (2000/TRAFFIC VIOLENCE)
Vier-Griffe-Punkrock mit politisch Texten und fettem Booklet. Farbiges Vinyl.
paranoia (2007/WASTED SOUNDS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Just like their neighbours in REGULATIONS and VICIOUS this quartet, with members from DS-13, DICK CHENEY, AMBULANCE etc., devotes themselves to '80s style hardcore-punk but with more striking power than the local competitors. They mix that raw feeling with the sound of classical bands, ending up with a simple and pure soundtrack for destruction. It is apparent that the group have studied the classical compilations "flex your head" and "this is boston not la", BLACK FLAG and CIRCLE JERKS. The fact that INSURGENT KID have managed to make their full-length debute sound like it was released on Xclaim, Discord around 1982 makes it the best swedish hardcore album so far this year.
INT. NOISE CONSPIRACY, THE
your choice live series (2002/YOUR CHOICE)

This live album is a limited edition of 1000 LPs, recorded live at the Schlachthof in Bremen (2002). You'll get 8 tracks including a medley of their "smash it up" and THE STOOGES "tv eye". Scandinavian garage-rock rebellion.
