HARDCORE. This item includes both of UNBROKEN's full-length releases, "life love regret" and "ritual", all 7"s and compilation tracks. UNBROKEN were one of the pioneers who helped blur the line between hardcore and metal in the early '90s. Now re-pressed in a limited quantity on red vinyl. Vinyl comes with aq triple fold-out gatefold-cover. Crucial!
new hate order (2012/GRINDATTACK)
DEATH-METAL/GRINDCORE. UNCHALLENGED HATE of Essen, Germany was formed in 1997. They released a couple releases so far and got highly acclaimed critics all over the planet. "new hate order" contains 13 explosions of grindcore cacophony, but underneath it all is a subtle hint of old-fashioned death-metal. Limited vinyl version includes free CD of this entire album.
back from the ditch (2008/AGIPUNK)
CRUST-METAL. Those swedish veterans won't get older - "back from the ditch" is UNCURBE's 10th full-length. UNCURBED is without doubt the d-beat band with the biggest death-metal background around. This one is pretty different from the previous "welcome to the anarcho city" full-length. Expect downtuned heavy guitars. UNCURBED's sound of thunderous drums, galloping heavy guitar rythms, and intensely dark vocals are sure to put them at the top ranks of crust and metal scenes. Call it d-beat but it's more close to an earthquake!
chords for freedom (2003/SOUND POLLUTION)
CRUST-HARDCORE. "chords for freedom" deliever 8 tracks from Sweden’s masters of punishing hardcore-punk packaged in a beautiful digi-pack. Originally recorded in 1999 to be released by Retribution Records to coincide with their 2000 tour of England, now years later "chords for freedom" sees the light of day. UNCURBED have been at it since 1990 and there has never been a band as consistent at delivering kick ass crust influenced hardcore-punk.
turmoil (2010/AGIPUNK/POWER IT UP)
CRUST-HARDCORE. Return of the swedish crustmongers! "turmoil" contains 12 new tracks of traditional swedish d-beat crust. UNCURBED can be compared to bands such as SKITSYSTEM or WOLFBRIGADE. This is their 1st recording with their new vocalist Mattias Bergfelt who did an excellent job!
welcome to anarcho city (2006/SOUND POLLUTION)
CRUST-HARDCORE. "welcome to anarcho city" solve 18 ass kicking anthems from the long-reigning rebel kings of Swedish hardcore to the world’s party punks. "welcome to anarcho city" plows full-bore into your brain with the most ferocious set of anarchistic anthems assembled together on one record since 1998’s classic "peacelovepunklife", complete with enough blazing guitar solos, lacerated throat dueling vocals and booze-drenched hooks to level Stockholm.
UNCURBED / MY COLD EMBRACE
split (2011/POWER IT UP)
CRUST-HARDCORE. UNCURBED with 2 crust-hardcore tracks recorded in 2000. The MY COLD EMBRACE side brings us 2 infernal crust attacks.
the ever burning torch (2011/ICONOCLAST)
DEATH-METAL. From Sicily with fury, UNDEAD CREEP come out strongly with their 1st full-length, a pure Swedish-oriented death-metal assault without compromises. Obscure, raw, brutal guitar riffing, granitic rhythm section and occult lyrical themes, as tradition teaches. If you love NIHILIST, early ENTOMBED and DISMEMBER, you'll love these guys too. Featuring members of HAEMOPHAGUS , GIUDA and MORBO. Vinyl comes in gatefold-sleeve.
UNDER AL KRITIK
insomnia (2009/SORRY STATE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. Originally released in Denmark and impossible to find for a decent price, Sorry State has decided that this record is just too good to be heard only by those willing to spend $10 on a single 7". UNDER AL KRITIK are punk with a slight crossover vibe to the riffs, making this resemble CHRIST ON PARADE or ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT just as much as the CIRCLE JERKS. This will fit right in that section of your collection - limited to 500 copies, so don't sleep on this!
UNDER AL KRITIK
s/t (2010/BAD HAIR LIFE)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This is the 1st long-player for this Danish hardcore-punk band from Odense. A throwback sound from Reagan's second term can be heard in the 17 tracks. Riffs and short solos recall the sound of hardcore bands that had heard "bonded by blood" and "kill em all" and liked them. UNDER AL KRITIK could be likened to crossover because of their combination of hardcore-punk with thrash, but this band is punk before metal. Picture them playing with FEARLESS IRANIANS, SEPTIC DEATH, CHRIST ON PARADE, or most obviously, D.R.I.. UNDER AL KRITIK would have fit perfectly into the time and this LP could pass as a genuine release from the end of the arms race.
black bile (2007/FASHIONABLE IDIOTS)
HARDCORE. "black bile" is UNDER PRESSURE's 1st record with their 5 piece lineup. They're still playing heavy, driving hardcore from the barren lands of Winnipeg. They personally cite MOTÖRHEAD, POISON IDEA, and GAUZE as influences, playing a dark, heavy style of hardcore; not that fast but intense and catchy as fuck. If you like their previous releases you'll love this, too! You need to own this!
still no future (2003/SOUND POLLUTION)
HARDCORE. Totally out of control hardcore thrash from Winnipeg Canada with more bad ass riffs than thought possible. "still no future" mixes intense fast hardcore with some killer ZEKE style rock riffs plus one hell of a recording for maximum damage. UNDER PRESSURE is not a new band as much as it is a continuation from where its predecessor, GUNS, LIQUOR & WHORES, left off. UNDER PRESSURE's objective hasn't changed; play fast heathen hardcore that does away with stagnant trends and insincere messages.
UNDER THE PLEDGE OF SECRECY
the convoluted line (2008/YSKALNARI)
TECH-GRINDCORE. This stuff is pure technique! The five-pice from Aachen in Germany defines hardcore from its chaotic and brutal way using metallic riffing, heavy blast-beats, changing rhythm breaks, a harsh voice and some jazzy parts when it gets more quiet from time to time. But still after high level chaos they catch you with some straight melody, which testifies some songwriting skills next to the technique as well. Think of Hydra Head bands and some old DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN or DISCORDANCE AXIS.
matchless (2010/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. UNDERDOG has been a staple in the hardcore scene since their inception in the 1980's and the release of "matchless" will further cement the impact that the band had upon the world. The 2 key constant elements of UNDERDOG during its span of 4 years were Richie Birkenhead (vocals) and Russ Iglay (bass) who decided to form a band while talking at CBGB in 1985. Fast forward over 20 years and UNDERDOG is back with this comprehensive release that will include both "the vanishing point" and "the demos" on one release. Colored vinyl comes with a gatefold cover and includes a MP3 download code.
s/t (2010/BRIDGE NINE)
HARDCORE. UNDERDOG has been a staple in the hardcore scene since their inception in the '80s. UNDERDOG's debut 7", originally released on New Beginning Records in 1986, available again briefly on Bridge Nine. Colored 7" includes digital download.
