Gas Rag - On The Beach EP

"Chicago's GR'S final offering, recorded just before their breakup last fall. Comparisons have been made, names have been dropped, l'll just keep it as great old mid-western HC meets some scandi or jap HC, yet without sounding as one of them generic dis-clone bands. The Rag have graced us for a short yet very fruitfull period with some of the best harsh and refreshing HC/PUNK for the last couple of years, this EP is among of their best"

Mujercitos - Demo 2014


Not sure how this one flew under my radar.  
Female-fronted blistering HC punk from Mexico. 
Featuring members of INSERVIBLES, Demented as expected.

AJAX - Self Titled EP (HQ 320kbps)

"Debut 7" from NYC's best new hardcore punk band. Taking the blueprint of blistering USHC with riffs reminiscent of Swedish classics like Totalitär and one of the most powerful vocalists going today, Ajax have quickly become one of the most interesting contemporary hardcore bands."

Prag - Self Titled EP

"Perth punks PRAG unleashed 4 tracks of unhinged mutant hardcore. The nasty sounds of this EP are a hybrid of Finnish Hardcore circa 1982, Japanese low production flexis from the ADK days and Spanish heavy hitting hardcore. All blended with a healthy DISORDER vibe and a rat sounding GERMS style vocalist. All in all a damaging piece of pogo inducing hardcore-punk with a teeth cutting guitar tone, a wall of reverb and an urgent beat. File next to GLAM, DESTINO FINAL, CRAZY SPIRIT or SEXUAL."
