STONER-ROCK. Written in the soggy North West and honed in Richmond, FOOD plays muddy rock with misanthropic themes, appealing to fans of the punky grunge that first came from the Pacific Northwest and the hardcore dirges that followed. But instead of crawling into the bong and relying on sludge-rock parlor tricks, FOOD cranks up the speed and excitement, and injects their music with a positive element, celebrating the beauty of nature. This is granite rock, not just stoner-rock. From members of STOP IT, PINK RAZORS and HOMEMADE KNIVES. This debut full-length contains 5 songs in 40min. on 180gr vinyl.
FOR THE WORSE
for the good for the bad for the worse (2011/ARREST)
HARDCORE. After a multitude of releases on more than a few labels, New England's most rotten hardcore band, FOR THE WORSE, grace the masses again with "for the good for the bad for the worse"; a 12 track piece of fast, pissed, oi-inspired songs that translates into an insane live show.
FOR THE WORSE / ENEMIES FOR LIFE
split (2008/TOURIST TRAP)
HARDCORE. The maniacs are back, FOR THE WORSE team up with fellow massholes ENEMIES FOR LIFE on this split. FOR THE WORSE are influenced by older Boston hardcore bands like SLAPSHOT mixed with oi!-punk bands like THE BRUISERS. ENEMIES FOR LIFE (share members with CONCRETE FACELIFT) play short, fast, and downright mean hardcore influcenced by old style Boston hardcore bands like NEGATIVE FX and early JERRY'S KIDS.
FOR THE WORSE / KIDS OF CARNAGE
split (2008/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE. After multiple releases for Bridge Nine Records, Boston's FOR THE WORSE comeback with these 2 songs of fast, rowdy and blazing hardcore in the traditional early '80s Boston sound while Cape Cod's KIDS OF CARNAGE play some fast, snotty hardcore-punk with a slight metallic influence.
FOR THE WORSE / WEDNESDAY NIGHT HEROES
HARDCORE. Both bands play catchy and fast hardcore-punk combined with short and raw snotty tinges. FOR THE WORSE should be known for their releases on Bridge 9, Even Worse, and Rodent Popsicle. Edmonton's WEDNESDAY NIGHT HEROES have been spreading the punk virus through Canada via BYO Records. Each band provides an exclusive track and a cover song from ZERO BOYS and BRUISERS.
HARDCORE. After their recent demo tape, FORCE FED return with their 1st vinyl offering - 5 songs of fast and scrappy youthful hardcore. Much like the demo tape these boys from Pennsylvania kicking the all-slow-no-go trends to the curb in favor of one minute blasts of straight-edge fueled anger. 7" includes digital download.
FORCE OF CHANGE
the fire still burns (2006/INDECISION)
SXE-HARDCORE. Following up their wildly successful demo that ended up being formally released on THIS BLESSING THIS CURSE, Orange County's FORCE OF CHANGE are set to give the straight-edge a new foothold in their hometown. Their debut for Indecision Records is 10 tracks of driven hardcore served up mid-'90s style hardcore.
HARDCORE. DC has always been known as a city ahead of its time, be it in ideas, art, politics or music. FORCED FORWARD is likewise ahead of their time, pushing a sound that is at once familiar and brand new. Their heavy guitar crunch and driving bass bring to mind bands like 108 - now compound that with the urgency of DC forefathers BAD BRAINS and you start to get an idea of where FORCED FORWARD is heading. Rich Miles' vocals have the slashed and burnt feeling of RESSURECTION and even RORSCHACH, not just expressing desperation, but making you feel it.
FORCED TO DECAY
perkussive perlokution (1998/PER KORO)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. "perkussive perlokution" is the 2nd full-length by these hard-hitting German kings. FORCED TO DECAY were always overshadowed by their labelmates MÖRSER and SYSTRAL. You'll get 8 more anguish tracks with some laid back, almost jazzy hints here and there. Metallic riffs and beautiful melodic undertones will touch your soul. Comes with an incredible punchful production on all levels that make this a record you shouldn't dare to miss.If you're a fan of the common Relapse, Deathwish artists or end '90s Bremen sound try these German pioneers of haunting, dark metallic hardcore force. Discover the Juggernaut that is FORCED TO DECAY. [PK #027]
FORCED TO DECAY
yggdrasil (1996/PER KORO)
HARDCORE. After a demo tape this is the 1st vinyl output from Germany's powerhouse FORCED TO DECAY. "yggdrasil" surprise with 3 extreme, doomy, evil and emotional, metallic-screamo and slowmotion hardcore songs - full of demonic heavyness. A really painful and unique sound that reminds on NEUROSIS and other heavyweights of the early '90s. If you are looking for the roots of metallic, doomy German hardcore, here it is. [PK #009]
person to person (2009/SECRETLY CANADIAN)
INDIE-POP. An album of dense pop that justifies the band's place among top songsmithing contemporaries like Cass McCombs and James Mercer, as well as Bowie. But the band is able to bypass the songwriter label by delivering a much more collective sound. African high-life guitars are countered with new wave wash; the sound of a band daring to keep its palette open to most any influence, from U2 to THE FEELIES. FOREIGN BORN deliver the soundtrack for the backyard BBQ of the ages.
a kind of life (2011/DIRT CULT)
PUNK-ROCK. Boston band featuring former & current members of LIBYANS, CONVERSIONS and AMPERE. The music is simple, catchy and to the point punk in the Dangerhouse tradition, but the vocals are what really sell this... incredibly unique and powerful, like Kathleen Hannah if she were really into "chavo"-era BLACK FLAG.
no sensation (2011/VINYL RITES)
PUNK-ROCK. FOREIGN OBJECTS blast through 8 songs of upbeat punk, somewhere between Dangerhouse, '77 pogo, riot grrl and early post-punk. They get compared to WIRE and BIKINI KILL a lot, and you'll hear more X. FOREIGN OBJECTS feature members of AMPERE and LIBYANS.
mammonism (2012/CUT THE CHORDS)
PUNK-ROCK. Melodic punk with people from LIBYANS, CONVERSIONS and a couple more. Here are the 1st new recordings with their new bass player. You'll get 2 fast punk smasher that let us think of a missing link between old Californian punk and BIKINI KILL. If you dig their previous records, you'll love this gem as well!
s/t (2010/TAKE IT BACK)
HARDCORE. Featuring ex-members of IN ONE PIECE, FORESEEN from Finland plays brutal metal-influenced New York-style hardcore that reminds of bands such as CRO-MAGS, MADBALL, BIOHAZARD, MERAUDER and, yes, METALLICA.
