THREE MILE PILOT
the inevitable past.. (2010/TEMPORARY RESIDENCE)
POST-ROCK. The rumor of a new THREE MILE PILOT album has been circulating for over a decade, further fueling the mystery and mythology that has swirled around the San Diego trio since 1997. The aptly-named "the inevitable past is the future forgotten" is written, performed, recorded and produced entirely by the original 3 members in their own home studios. While PINBACK and THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION were obviously influenced by THREE MILE PILOT in their early days, the inverse can now be heard, with many of the songs bearing the unmistakable and inevitable stamps of PINBACK and THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION. This circular influence is what makes the album so brilliant.
natural deselection (2009/HAUNTED HOUSE)
PUNK-ROCK. The Aussies of THRILLKILLERS deliever 2 traumatic tracks of brain-broiling rock 'n' roll brutality. THRILLKILLERS are like catching a ride on some lunatic gorilla-helmed time machine gushing back into the burning asshole of the '70s. Total fucking rippers! Featuring one of the masterminds behind hardcore legends RUPTURE, these dudes are no strangers to bloodlust and sodomy. This 7" will kick you in the tits and straighten out your teeth quicker than a bourbon-soaked brick to the face. The weak will be left in pools of piss as fans of high-octane punk-rock run screaming for joy into the night!
prison shower/pet thieves (2012/KAOS KONTROL)

s/t (2013/TWELVE GAUGE)
HARDCORE. THROATS is a young U.K. hardcore band that is fast and loud. This is their debut from 2010 - featuring 6 songs. For fans of TRAP THEM, CONVERGE and CEREMONY. Now available again on colored vinyl.
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD
DEATHCORE. THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD is that rare band that comes around once a decade that resets the bar for extreme music. Jamey King (Between The Buried And Me) produced "bloodlust" which is steeped in the tradition of metal legends such as MORBID ANGEL and NAPALM DEATH, while breathing new life into the genre. A successful underground headline tour in spring of 2005 established them as true force, drawing major crowds with just one underground release under their belt.
HARDCORE. THROWDOWN truly found their voice, both literally and figuratively, with "haymaker" and the urgency inherent in THROWDOWN and their fiercely loyal dedication to their friends, families, fans and each other, has made "vendetta" the fullest realization of their vision. "haymaker" and "vendetta" are now available in one special edition vinyl package.
venom & tears (2008/TRUSTKILL)
METALCORE. Orange County's THROWDOWN is back with "venom & tears", the follow up to last year's fan-beloved and critically lauded album "vendetta". The heavy metallic fury and venomous bite of "venom & tears" is timeless, recalling the heyday of mid '90s metal with the spirit of traditional hardcore. Get ready for a new level of heavy music with depth, passion and truthful emotion, from the emotional title track to adrenaline fueled power-smash of riffs and rhythms, shifting tempos and grooving ferocity. Get ready for "venom & tears". Colored vinyl comes with 1 additional bonus track.
prosaic materialists/rudimentary bodies (2012/VENDETTA)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE. There must be something in the air or in the water in Leipzig, Germany. Maybe it's the eastern german history, the lack of perspectives or the hopelessness in those wastelands. After bands such as MEN IN SEARCH FOR A PERFECT WEAPON, PERTH EXPRESS, BLACK FREIGHTER and ZANN... all came from Leipzig, here's the next killer: THROWERS! On this nice 10" you'll get 4 long songs of chaotic hardcore with the typical Leipzig-influence - be ready to get overrun by these 4 maniacs.
1998 to 2000 (2011/SIT AND SPIN)
PUNK-ROCK. THULSA DOOM existed and was active primarily in the late 90's in NYC and disbanding in early 2001. This slab of vinyl includes both their split 7" with DISTRAUGHT as well as the "desensitized" 7" and 2 previously unreleased tracks. Since disbanding in 2001 the band has started to play live again just this year following the release of this record. THULSA DOOM is truly one of the most influential anarcho-punk bands of their time.
luggsliten levnad (2009/PUKE N VOMIT)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Swedish hardcore punk with multi-vocalists and melody to boot. Not unlike the sound that is coming out of sweden today. Think of GORILLA ANGREB or REGULATIONS catchiness and melodic hooks but a bit faster and angrier. This is an amazing follow up to their first 7".
tegelsten for tegelsten (2010/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Defying easy sub-genre categorizations, THURNEMAN take the raw materials of straightforward '80s hardcore - blistering drums, frantic riffing and hoarse, shouted vocals - and flesh them out with creative song structures and unique atmospheric touches. This potent combination of aggression and catchiness brings to mind early '80s classics like HÜSKER DÜ's "everything falls apart" release as well as Scandinavian rippers like HEADCLEANERS.
no devolucion (2011/EPITAPH)
INDIE/POST-ROCK. On their 6th studio album, THURSDAY explores the elements of post-rock, indie, art and experimental styles of MOGWAI and EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, blending it all with their post-hardcore roots for a beautifully cathartic experience unlike anything they've done before. Vinyl version includes free CD of this entire album and an etched d-side.
TIDAL SLEEP, THE
4 song (2012/THIS CHARMING MAN)
POST-HARDCORE. THE TIDAL SLEEP is a four-piece band from Mannheim/Karlsruhe, Germany and this is their 4 song record. Musically, they play melodic hardcore with nice shoegazeish, post-rockish guitar parts and emotional vocals. The new songs are dreamy, passionate and intense in the same time, sound like the old TOUCHE AMORE mixed with ENVY. This one-sided LP comes with a nice etched b-side and a digital download card.
TIDAL SLEEP, THE
s/t (2012/THIS CHARMING MAN)
POST-HARDCORE. Maybe this is the 1st hardcore band on This Charming Man. They take the passionate, almost spoken vocals out of bands like of the popular wave-movement , use similar picturesque language but combine it with an almost post-rockish guitar sound without loosing their drive and attack. This is not a new way to get a post-rock thing going – this is modern hardcore with extraordinary guitar work. If you dig ENVY, LA DISPUTE, TOUCHE AMORE or SADDEST LANDSCAPE, check out these guys! Colored vinyl comes with digital download card.
what i meant to say (2012/MELOTOV)
POST-HARDCORE. With influences that include MODERN LIFE IS WAR and ORCHID, it's difficult to confine TIDEMOUTH to one genre. Too painted and instrumentally dynamic to be hardcore, yet too heavy and eerily atmospheric to fall under the category of '90s screamo, this 7" is caught in a purgatory between melodic angst and crushing sadness. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
