TRAPPED UNDER ICE
stay cold (2008/REAPER)
HARDCORE. Hailing from the port city of Baltimore comes the war-mammoth known as TRAPPED UNDER ICE, who proudly inherit and build upon the mantle of their predecessors NEXT STEP UP and GUT INSTINCT. Compound this with the sonic territories explored by New York bands such as CROWN OF THORNS and BREAKDOWN and the intent of the outfit becomes obvious - total aural brutality. Vinyl contains 6 tracks of unrelenting hardcore reality and includes a digital download card! CD comes with 6 additional bonus tracks.
119 (2012/ODD FUTURE)
HARDCORE. Forwards ever, backwards never. In a perfect world, those four words would tell you everything you need to know about Sacramento, thrash-punk juggernaut TRASH TALK. But in a perfect world, these four furious scions of guitar-wrought destruction wouldn't exist. TRASH TALK is fueled by everything ugly, and they give it back in spades. Their 2012 full-length record, "119," adds in the always unquantifiable, never conventional entity that is Odd Future. Forwards ever, backwards never. Colored vinyl comes with gatefold-cover and includes a CD of full album.
awake (2012/TRUE PANTHER SOUNDS)
HARDCORE. TRASH TALK's thrash attack rides again in the form of this 7" on True Panther Sounds. All 7"s are colored and the lyric sheet comes in a poster format.
eyes & nines (2010/TRASH TALK)
HARDCORE. Featuring influences ranging from American hardcore-punk to legendary jazz musicians, "eyes & nines" is without doubt a crucial addition to the American hardcore discography. With "eyes & nines", TRASH TALK keeps up their pace while introducing more structure, making this album their most focused, cohesive to date. From a sludge influenced track to anthemic, blast-beat laden songs, this album features 10 crushing tracks for hardcore fans the world over. Colored vinyl comes with a die-cut cover.
smile (2009/SISTER JACK)
GARAGE-ROCK/BEAT. The leading riff of the opener rises and falls equally to an oscillating sine wave. But it’s only a glimpse of a high-octane track that will unfold as soon as the other instruments phase in and sooner than you expect you’ll catch yourself singing. Simple yet effective arrangements are the trademarks of the sound on "smile" and together with the high fun factor it makes up an entertaining full-length you can play at any party. Look forward to this, the imagination and the groove of the TRASHMONKEYS are without bounds. You can't and shouldn't even try to escape them. Get it. It's gonna come in a nice gatefold sleeve!
s/t (2012/FERAL WARD)
HARDCORE. TRAUMA features the singer from early ‘80s Portland hardcore band FINAL WARNING on vocals, along with Billy from TRAGEDY, DEATHREAT, HIS HERO IS GONE and FROM ASHES RISE on guitar, and Todd from TRAGEDY, DEATHREAT, HIS HERO IS GONE and WARCRY on drums. They play raging Portland hardcore that can be compates to a more raw and stripped down DEATHREAT. Pounding hardcore with a japanese influence.

TREE OF SORES
a cry of despair (2012/ALERTA ANTIFASCISTA)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. Leeds 3 piece, taking influences from the doomy atmospherics of NEUROSIS, an underbelly of crust care of AMEBIX, and an air of recklessness favoured by the likes of EYEHATEGOD. The band create a vibe that is heavy, dark and ambient, with tortured male/female vocals, and a mission to take you to a frightening place. Starting out with crushing guitars and abrasive vocals a pounding rhythm soon is established leading to some haunting guitar work it sets the tone for more to follow. This Release also contains almost the whole debut (one song is missing) on the b-side and includes a poster-inlay.
sickness in (2013/VENDETTA)
DOOM/AMBIENT-METAL. "sickness in" is the 3rd album from Portland's most wretched, TREES. The band presents a 2-song assault, each one roughly 15min. in length, each a slowly rotting heap of droning slow-motion death-doom riffs decomposing into clouds of black amplifier hum, high shrieking voices and tortured screams drifting against the glacial roar of smoking amp stacks and short-circuiting hardware. "sickness in" inhabits the same sort of black-tar depths as the likes of BURNING WITCH, MONARCH, KHANATE while stripping the slo-mo heaviness into their own twisted, skeletal.
island songs (2011/SIX FEET UNDER)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Featuring the vocalist of UK's DIRTY MONEY, TREMORDS play fast, angry hardcore-punk with a raw recording and no filler. Think OUT COLD and POISON IDEA. This 6 track 7" is intense, tight and hits you right in the face. Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.
s/t (2011/DO SOME HARM)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Featuring members of just about every underground Southern California hardcore-punk band from 2010, like BROKEN NEEDLE, COP, TIPPER'S GORE, NEON MANIACS and many others. TRENCH ROT bring a volatile mix of "feel the darkness"-era POISON IDEA and modern American d-beat spread over 5 tracks.
tyrant (2012/VIDEO DISEASE)
HARDCORE. Latest and greatest 7" from these So Cal hardcore warriors. Rejecting the more traditional d-beat approach the band injects a huge amount of early US-hardcore influence into their DISCHARGE-tinged riffs, bringing to mind trailblazers such as the legendary POISON IDEA. They are not simply paying homage though, they are jumping out from the pack of trendy d-beat and rehash hardcore to bring a record with an incredibly powerful sound and incredibly catchy songs. On this recording they have stayed away from the raw-ponx trend that is sweeping Los Angeles and instead opted for a brighter and cleaner recording to capture the power that these juggernauts have. All copies on colored vinyl.
navigator (2005/SOUNDS OF SUBTERRANIA/PLASTIC BOMB)
POST-PUNK. Finally a new album of the four ex-Südpfälzer! The last single with the ingenious "Gott hat keine flugzeuge mehr" is just as represented as many other hits. Bulkily, ruppig and nevertheless melodisch and stamping SAM, it smells to Hamburg (Goldenen Zitronen, Blumen...) and England (Gang of Four, times again... "Mann in Uniform", haha, very well, also in music perfect a Hommage) and nevertheless completely own, even trombones (?) is used with "rue love". No boring, smooth production, separate roughly and "Punk" somehow. The texts are used like a class for itself, provided with quotations and cross references, large cinema, thanks! Record come with 4 different coverartworks.
always meant to hurt you. (2011/A389)
GRINDCORE. Baltimore's TRIAC blast through 4 tracks of furious noise-rock infused grindcore. Not for the weak hearted, this record is the perfect soundtrack for total panic and disarray. This is audio terrorism at its finest. Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.
TRIAC / DISCIPLES OF CHRIST
split (2013/REGURITATED SEMEN)
POWER-VIOLENCE/GRINDCORE. Baltimore’s TRIAC blast through 5 tracks of furious blasting grindcore, after a bunch of 7"s and a 3-way LP, here are some new blasts with a new singer. Features members of HATEWAVES, JESUS OF NAZARETH etc.. DISCIPLES OF CHRIST features members of MAGRUDERGRIND/COKE BUST/SICK FIX, and JUICE TIME do it noisier and filthier and a bit more power-violence oriented, which sounds like something that would have come from the West-Bay circa 1995. The deliver a mix of sludge, grind, and power-violence.
are these our lives (2011/PANIC/EQUAL VISION)
SXE-HARDCORE. Having built a solid following in the '90s and established a legacy that would carry on to present day, TRIAL has always maintained the respect and admiration of their peers. After being on hiatus for a few years, TRIAL is back, hence the re-release of their recordings. Musically it's not too far removed from early hardcore bands such as BURN, FOUR WALLS FALLING, and BEYOND, who captured a sound that was fast, energentic and powerful.
