catch the future (2005/625)
HARDCORE. The long awaited follow up full-length from Tokyo, Japan's own CRUCIAL SECTION. CRUCIAL SECTION continue what they are known for, manic but melodic high energy old-school thrashy hardcore that sounds like "defiance of power" era RIPCORD. Positive lyrics, tons of flannels, and high-speed thrash!
CRUCIAL SECTION / HIT ME BACK
HARDCORE. In support of their West-Coast Tour (2006) Tokyo speedcore legends CRUCIAL SECTION and Los Angeles' thrash 'n' roll veterans HIT ME BACK went into the studio to lay-down what both bands have become infamous for: high-energy, positive thrashcore. Both bands deserve 3 songs.
CRUCIAL SECTION / POSITIVE NOISE
split (2008/PUNKS BEFORE PROFITS)
HARDCORE. Bridging oceans and continents, this split teams up 2 maniacal thrashing monsters in Japan's CRUCIAL SECTION and Michigan's POSITIVE NOISE, with CRUCIAL SECTION bringing 3 tracks and POSITIVE NOISE hammering out 5 attacks.
the posi-machine (2012/NEW RED ARCHIEVES)
SXE-HARDCORE. Before GOOD CLEAN FUN even tried to tackle the straight-edge hardcore humor scene with open arms, this late '80s New Jersey band had the whole hardcore scene holding their bellies from laughing so hard. Originally released in 1989, this is a lovingly restored reissue. If you're a fan of YOUTH OF TODAY or eraly Revelation stuff in general, this is right in your league. Colored vinyl includes a 20 page comic book.
HARDCORE. CRUCIFIX was a hardcore band originally from Berkeley, California. The band was started in 1980, fronted by Sothira Pheng, whose family had fled Cambodia when the Khmer Rouge took power. CRUCIFIX combines the political spirit of CONFLICT with the DISCHARGE school of music. Along with DISCHARGE "hear nothing", ANTISECT's "in darkness" and AMEBIX "monolith" this is one of the most important anarcho releases of the early '80s. Sothira's vocals are very powerful and unique for this style. Comes like the original with poster cover. This is an alltime classic!
1999 (2009/FERAL WARD)
HARDCORE. CRUDE's been around since 1995 and have come to define the hakodate-sound - melodic and layered japanese hardcore played with heart and drive. CRUDE built upon the crusty Japanese hardcore sound originated by bands like LIPCREAM, GAUZE and DEATH SIDE, while pushing the style to new levels.
attitude (2009/FERAL WARD)
HARDCORE. CRUDE's been around since 1995 and have come to define the hakodate sound; melodic and layered Japanese hardcore played with heart and drive. This is their most recent full-length, originally released in 2000, sold-out soon thereafter, and now available again for their upcoming american-tour.
out of stock
HARDCORE. "immortality" (the 4th full-length) compiles the band's best songs to date (chosen by the band from past releases) on one monster release and confidently establishes this band as one of the top traditional Japanese hardcore bands of the past decade. This is pure "burning spirit" hardcore at its best. Top notch musicianship; tight, fast, well constructed and catchy as hell and perfectly delivered vocals makes this a sure pleasure for anyone craving blazing solid Japanese hardcore. Fans of WARHEAD, FORWARD, BASTARD and GAUZE and other such classic outfits should take note.
CRUDE / SELFISH
split (2012/LA FAMILIA)
HARDCORE. SELFISH are back on track and showing that there's no limit for the deluxe Japcore by these finnish maniacs. CRUDE contribute another raw rager of their trademark high voltage hakodate hardcore. Both songs delivered with absolute passion. Limited edition of 450 copies on black vinyl!
lock & key (2010/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. Full of just as many catchy, metallic riffs as mosh parts, "lock & key" is a heavy mix of influences like LEEWAY, early CRO-MAGS and MADBALL, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. "lock & key" was recorded with producer Jay Maas (Verse, Bane, Defeater) and illustrates what CRUEL HAND is capable of both lyrically and musically - this is more than just a progression of their past material. The former side-project band only had one choice for their sophomore effort-sign with Bridge Nine Records. Colored vinyl version includes MP3 download code.
prying eyes (2008/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. CRUEL HAND's "prying eyes" is a record that's going to knock you on your ass. Originally a side project for members of OUTBREAK, CRUEL HAND has evolved from a band that never meant to tour into a band that has done a couple tours sofar. Combining early METALLICA, MADBALL and a crossover hardcore style that sounds like a modern AGNOSTIC FRONT or D.R.I., CRUEL HAND is set to show you that hardcore can be metal or your metal can be hardcore. Colored vinyl comes with eyecatching gatefold cover!
s/t (2010/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. This 7" features CRUEL HAND's self-titled track from their forthcoming album "lock & key". Side-b contains the 7" exclusive track "still". Since the release of CRUEL HAND's debut, the band has been a relentless touring machine and one of the tightest bands in the hardcore world. Colored 7" includes MP3 download code.
vigilant citizen/cheap life (2013/TRIPLE-B)
HARDCORE. Maine's wildest band returns with a brand new 7" in the vein of TRAPPED UNDER ICE and TERROR. These 2 songs are the 1st since their 2010 release, "lock & key". Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
HARDCORE. CRUISE MISSILES has been destroying ear drums around the Stuttgart area for a short time, before they broke-up in 2005. This posthum one-sided LP features 8 tracks. All out sonic bombardment of ultrafast and incredibly angry hardcore, old-school sound with nods to early Bay-Area stuff or Slap-a-Ham juggernauts. They only played a few live shows and when they broke up, they only had those kept recordings. CRUISE MISSILES played a perfect blend of styles while still being straight forward thrash. Packaged with a swank insert with lyrics and photos. Ripping!
