welcome to whine country (2012/HALO OF LIES)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. The remaining members of SANCTIONS hold it down in this new 2 piece power-violence explosion. Ripping out 10 tracks of bass/drum mayhem in just under 12min.. Proving that raw savagery needs no frills!
THETAN / BIBLE THUMPER
split (2013/BURNT BRIDGES)
POWER-VIOLENCE HARDCORE. Two bands - two members each = total mayhem. Nashville Tennessee's THETAN destroys your speakers with 4 tracks of spastic, frantic, borderline psychotic hardcore. Short rapidfire bursts of mayhem only subside long enough to make way for noisy fucked interims. Flip the record and New Brunswick's BIBLE THUMPER raze all in their path with feedback laden blasts of fire and brimstone. Pausing only momentarily before returning to their bludgeoning style of caustic hardcore. No guitarists were harmed in the making of this record!
THEY AND THE CHILDREN
thoughts on becoming a ghost (2006/SHOCK VALUE)
POST-HARDCORE. Connecticut hardcore mainstays THEY AND THE CHILDREN offer up a 6 song attack of crushing vocals, dense and searing guitar work, and bombastic drumming. Tackling a variety of styles, they seemlessly incorporate thrashing fast parts, huge riffs and melodic interludes, taking cues from bands such as MAJORITY RULE, ISIS and FROM ASHES RISE.
HARDCORE. Finally, after talking about this fucker for 4-5 years, they have recorded it! THEY LIVE is the perfect blend of US style fastcore (ala INFEST) mixed with influences of international hardcore. At times straight up fastcore, at others wailing guitar solos. One of America's best kept secrets.
positive vibrations (2010/TO LIVE A LIE)
HARDCORE. The debut release of Raleigh's THIEVES consists of 8 neck-breaking songs, running back to back, leaving absolutely no room to catch your breath. Their take on the genre consists of a very obvious '80s hardcore influence, but from a fresh perspective, which makes this record more than a mere tribute to the late great hardcore of day's past. With both blistering guitar riffage and hard hitting GAUZE-like drumming, the vocals top it off with massive energy and just enough reverb to actually damage your record player. As enraged as SIEGE, smashing like HERESY.

THIEVES LIKE US
bleed bleed bleed (2012/CAPTURED TRACKS)
INDIE/POP-ROCK. "bleed bleed bleed" is the 4th record by THIEVES LIKE US. Recorded safe inside their homes in Berlin and Paris, the 10 songs here are an admission to fears and doubt while entering a new chapter. While "bleed bleed bleed" continues the bands' tradition of quality pop songs, the addition of female vocalist Martine Duverglas adds a new dimension to the group. Purveying ominous lyrical imagery and their special blend of electro-pop the migratory clan set their sights upon uncharted territory.
THIN THE HERD
Mournful and overcast (2006/A WRENCH IN THE GEARS)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Taking major queues from TRAGEDY, HIS HERO IS GONE, THIN THE HERD offers up 7 tracks of heavy, catchy, down-tuned hardcore-punk with male/female dual vocals. The LP comes packed in a gatefold LP, and the band features ex-members of KUNGFU RICK, HIGH ON CRIME and CHRONIC SEIZURE. It comes with poster and on 180 gram vinyl. A total crusher!
national sacrifice zone (2011/GIVE PRAISE)
HARDCORE. THINK TWICE are from, Knoxville, Tennessee and feature members of LIFE CRISIS. These folks play raw , angry, and fast hardcore! Coated with a bit of Southern crust, they lay it out all in a Southern hardcore platter that will crush you!
THIRD MEMORY, THE
2nd (2009/REACT WITH PROTEST)
SCREAMO-HARDCORE. After a long delay, finally THE THIRD MEMORY's follow up to "et de cela rien ne ressort"is here. While most bands have been reduced to manufactured, caricature-like chaos and screams, THE THIRD MEMORY proves that there is true energy, and passion remaining hardcore. Taking nods from bands such as LA QUIETE, TRISTAN TZARA and ORCHID, THE THIRD MEMORY create brand of hardcore that is chaotic yet hypnotically beautiful. Frantic screams against a backdrop of wavering guitar sounds and propulsive drumming, THE THIRD MEMORY remind of the raw beauty that the hardcore can possess as means of expression. This LP is limited to 600 pieces all on black vinyl.
THIS BIKE IS A PIPE BOMB
convertible (2009/NO IDEA)
PUNK-ROCK/FOLK. Their most recent album finally sees the light of day on vinyl! A hybrid jamboree of country-folk and indie-rock, performed with guitars, harmonica, drums, bass, lotsa vocals, and a liberating spirit of abandon. Available on colored vinyl - includes a download code!
THIS BIKE IS A PIPE BOMB
front seat solodarity (2007/NO IDEA)
PUNK-ROCK/FOLK. The Florida trio takes its punk-rock folk around the country regularly. "front seat solodarity" is their 2nd full-length release, previously in a extrem limited edition a few years back (on Plan-It-X Records); now finally re-issued! "front seat solodarity" contains 14 songs that will make you smile and dance like an idiot. This is folk-punk at its finest!
THIS IS A STANDOFF
be disappointed (2009/ANIMAL STYLE)
POP-PUNK. Canadian punk heroes THIS IS A STANDOFF formed from the ashes of BELVEDERE and continue to bring blazing fast, melodic punk-rock with superior musicianship and a technical edge, reminiscent of bands like STRUNG OUT, MILLENCOLLIN, A WILHELM SCREAM.
THIS IS HELL
HARDCORE. Long Island's THIS IS HELL is releasing their sophomore album "misfortunes". This is about as authentically nasty and aggressive as the NYC hardcore style could get without becoming something else entirely. From the 1st chord which emerges from a swirl of feedback, "misfortunes" is a juggernaut which never slows. Whereas most bands would opt for the stripped down, more intimate song to break things up, these guys ignore the laws of common decency and crank it up even faster. "misfortunes" shows what happens when the youth-crew grow up, master their instruments and get some decent money to spend in the studio: all hell breaks loose!
THIS IS HELL
HARDCORE. Picking up where bands like AMERICAN NIGHTMARE left off, THIS IS HELL brings us 14 heart renching songs. "sundowning" serving of floor-punching, ass-kicking hardcore goodness that has more than a hint of old-school flavor baked throughout. If you have any interest at all in the handful of modern-hardcore bands that are keeping the genre fresh and exciting without flirting with metal, THIS IS HELL should certainly be on your to-listen list.
THIS IS HELL
warbirds (2009/THINK FAST)
HARDCORE. In 2009, with the release of "warbirds", THIS IS HELL is showing no signs of slowing down. The heartfelt conviction and energy of their previous releases is matched with a new found energy. "warbirds" contains 3 brand new, original tracks as well as 2 covers to round out the release. Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.
