PUNK-ROCK. Brighton, UK's BURNT CROSS are back with another 4 tracks of crushing anarcho-punk that by now you should be familiar with. This is their follow up to their well received split 7" with the almighty CRESS. Not since the '80s has a band captured this style so perfectly with their sincere convictions and catchy tunes. Just as meaning full as it is a good listen on the turntable. If you like bands like CRASS or CONFLICT then this modern day masterpiece is calling you.

origo & prey on life (2008/GARDEN OF EXILE/RELAPSE)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. Sweden's brightest metal-core hopefuls BURST plow headlong into eternity with their sophomore effort "Origo". With flowing grace and force of conviction, "Origo" lush layers of sound crush and caress in equal measure. Fragile melodic vocals intertwine with explosive screams, and waves of guitar weave songs as expressive and elaborate as human emotion itself. "Origo" is BURST's masterwork of complex, commanding music.
BURY ME STANDING / MADELINE FERGUSON
split (2003/CODE OF ETHICS)
HARDCORE. MADELINE FERGUSON crams melody, anger, a little metal ('80s metal), and what some would call screamo into a 6 song frenzy. BURY ME STANDING offer up a slab of very angry, political minded, hardcore with less melody than MADELINE FERGUSON. BURY ME STANDING's last 6 songs ever.

HARDCORE. Straight forward in overall attack, Memphis's BURY THE LIVING's 2nd full-length's. You'll get 21 tracks filled with enough dark twists , experimentation and pulling from diverse influences within the hardcore formula-from blast beat mid '90's hardcore to sxe-hardcore.
no mercy for you (2001/BURNING HEART)
