no prospect, no amnesty (2012/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE. Radical and in-your-face hardcore from Oklahoma. This is fast, raw, and their final recorded output! They shared a 7" with NO MANS SLAVE. They combine political vocals and a rash of what is annoying them at this present state of the world. Blended with excellent raw and angry hardcore.
for redemption (2008/1917)
HARDCORE. I RISE (comprised of former members of YOUTH ATTACK and current members of AMBITIONS) brings us "for redemption", a record that builds on their hard-hitting, mid-tempo sound that's blended with charged lyrics, a style that is reminiscent of some mid/late '90s bands but with a their own, brand new flavor. For fans of BANE, HAVE HEART and AMBITIONS.
I WALK THE LINE
language of the lost (2010/ROOKIE)
PUNK-ROCK. Hailing from Helsinki, Finland, I WALK THE LINE deliver their 4th full-length album. The band plays yetr again dark resonant, melodic, edgy punk, pulling from such influences as ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT, THE CLASH, ADOLESCENTS and MURDER CITY DEVILS.. the list could go on and on but I WALK THE LINE are all about listening to everybody and everything with an open mind and doing things their own way no matter what.

I WILL KILL YOU FUCKER
Educated guidance (2006/TANK CRIMES)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Here we have the 2nd instalment of I WILL KILL YOU FUCKER (vol. 1 on Life is Abuse records is already sold-out). Oakland's I WILL KILL YOU FUCKER comes at you with a bunch of punch. Indescribable really, but maybe if Frank Zappa teamed up with Cheech and Chong after drinking from the fountain of genius. A complete compass of direction in humor and music and then right back to music. Packaged in a brilliant silkscreened trifold gate cover including poster, stickers and screened inserts. Limited pressing of 500 colored copies!
ICARUS LINE, THE
LA's ICARUS LINE return with their third full-length; their most stunning venture to date. The album was entirely recorded on tape, and the band pushed the sound above and beyond their own expectations, dosing it with even more concentrated elements of pop, art, and sex. "Black Lives" proves that true rock 'n' roll is still alive in the heart of THE ICARUS LINE.
dead kings (2010/THINK FAST)
HARDCORE. ICE AGE may be a new band, but its members have helped form some of Long Island, NY's most well-known and important hardcore outfits. With only a 4 song demo under their belts, the drive of current and former members of THIS IS HELL and THE BACKUP PLAN has given birth to a new band with the experience of any scene veterans. The debut album "dead kings" promises a varied approach at the hardcore genre, comparable to everyone from hardcore legend's SICK OF IT ALL, to genre-crossing hybrids like UNBROKEN. Colored vinyl version includes MP3 download code.
nobody's son (2010/PRANK)
HARDCORE. ICE NINE from Indianapolis represented everything that was great about resurgent extreme hardcore of the '90s - a experimental willingness to throw anything against the wall to make it's point, incorporating the straight forward attack of '80s hardcore but pulverizing formula through burly Low end down beat, intensely Frenetic drumming, swirling guitar leads and the fragmentary Midwest stop and start twists. A Uniquely original band like their contemporaries HIS HERO IS GONE, IN/HUMANITY, END OF THE CENTURY PARTY. Band members went on to play in TIME IN MALTA, BURN IT DOWN, MAHJAS, THE PROBLEMATICS, YOU WILL DIE and THE DREAM IS DEAD. In 2009, the band reunited wrote 3 new tracks that pick up right where they left off.
you're nothing (2013/MATADOR)
POST-PUNK. Just out of their teens, it seems Copenhagen, Denmark's ICEAGE has only added to the anxiety and tension that made their debut album, "new brigade", so compelling. But now, they're challenging their raging emotions instead of simply expressing them. "you're nothing", ICEAGE's sophomore album, is the sound of a band pushing their singular mix of punk, goth, hardcore and post-punk to even further extremes. It's overwhelming how many ways ICEAGE has found to write the short aggressive rock song. Vinyl version includes a digital download card.

ICEBURN COLLECTIVE, THE
power of the lion (2009/SOUTHERN LORD)

Instrumentation is 2 guitars, 2 upright basses and drums. High energy effort working with the sound collage form. A seemless fusion of influences as diverse as ERIC DOLPHY to DRIVE LIKE JEHU. A powerful explosion of transcendental vibrations whose efervescence is as important now as it ever was. Available for the 1st time on 180gr vinyl with a gatefold-cover and alternate artwork.
the first (1994/EBULLITION)
HARDCORE. ICONOCLAST was the only band on Ebullition that was ever released because of a demo that was received in the mail. The ICONOCLAST demo sounded a lot like RORSCHACH. When they recorded these 4 songs their sound had developed into something much more complex and unique. A classic early '90s hardcore record from a band that existed side by side with East Coast legends like RORSCHACH, BORN AGAINST, MEREL and CURRENT.
ICONS OF FILTH

i know about you (2008/POLYVINYL)
