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."

Sick Thoughts - Fat Kid with a 10 inch


"Have you ever been to Hanover, PA? I‘ve spent time there, and It’s WEIRD. Hanover is lousy with mongoloids/juggalos and slack jawed farm people. Drew Owen, otherwise known as SICK THOUGHTS, was born there, and through the benevolent seer abilities of his dad was fortunate enough to escape to Baltimore, MD, currently ranked in the top 30 most dangerous cities in the USA. Monsieur Owen has somehow overcome his geographically debilitating boundaries, and with the aid of no one but his own 17 year old genius, has vinyl releases on labels from Italy (Goodbye Boozy), Sweden (Ken Rock), Zaxxon (Canada), and a few American imprints, including an upcoming single on Memphis’ finest, Goner Records. This large hole 10” on Black Gladiator is the nastiest recording we’ve heard yet from this pudgy, pimple faced fucker. Sick Thoughts channels GG and the Jabbers and Japanese noise with heavy negatory spirit on each track - a sonically screwed and puberty drenched hatful of hateful punk rock sputum."


THISCLOSE - One Foot In The Grave


14 tracks of devastating, brain detonating hardcore in the tradition of Cal's Discharge, what if Cal was the only person in Discharge that thought heavy metal was cool? (Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing LP music, Grave New World LP vocals)

Oily Boys - Majesty EP

"Devastating debut EP from Sydney's Oily Boys, total savagery with a lot more style than your average HC band though, these guys throw in some bad-vibed sludgery, a bit of the Clevo ultraviolence and just general depravity to make some uniquely heavy music. Some of the best and burliest of modern Aussie hardcore-punk"
No wimps allowed.


Blood Suckers - Night Of The Sadist EP


HARDCORE by the way of Norway. 
You might remember the crushing BLOOD SUCKERS from earlier this year? This is another superb and total ripping hardcore record. They did it again and recorded a couple of new songs for this 6 song 7".

Arms Race - Gotta Get Out EP


"Debut 7inch by this London based UK82 meets NYHC/Boston crew band of booted boys and lady. This 7" sees the band add more power and speed to their sound and even more gnarled up British vocals." 


The Inmates - Self Titled LP (2014)


"What more could you ask for in 2014? A new fuckin' INMATES record? Awe shit. Cleveland's finest are back with 7 new tracks of scorching Japanese-influenced HC plus a GUNS cover and a skit lambasting the "crust fund" oogle shitheads that you see riding the rails and winding up at punk gigs. Paul's vocals have weathered over the years a bit, sounding even more disgusted and skummy. The music here is 100% what you'd expect from the INMATES, raging top shelf negative HC punk. What are you waiting for? Just fucking get this."

Big Zit - Electric Zit Vol. 1 EP


"The Big Throbbin’ Zit's first fit. BZ has spent months and months honing a craft that the big-city, shitty-kitties can only grasp at, all so they can deliver to all you true believers the most ragingest, rockingest, ass-shakingest rekkid sure to drop this year. At least until their next opus."

Ooze - Self Titled EP


"You read that right. At long last. Six track shit slab from the Abominable Ooze. ‘Nuff said."

'Tis post-punk season

Ugly Parts - Wet EP


"Ugly Parts from New Brunswick, NJ released a demo and 7" previously. They took some time to focus on this new EP, and it is worth the wait. "Wet" perfectly captures their sound like My War era Rollins joined Negative Approach, did drugs, then moved to Japan and X-claim released the end result. The production is raw, and contains samples and feedback to flow the whole thing together." 
Members also currently play in Razorheads.

The Combat Zone - Self Titled LP (320 Kbps HQ)

Members of Male Nurses, Contingent, Green Beret, Chain Rank,
and other fine Boston musical acts.

Gas Chamber - Hemorrhaging Light LP


"Buffalo hardcore has always made a significant yet largely misunderstood contribution to the furthering of musical mastery. And "Hemorrhaging Light" is no exception. With the same 7 notes that everyone else uses, GAS CHAMBER have managed to completely turn mere punk music into a tense, trans-formative journey. Very rarely in punk do we get to have a complete life shift in the space of one album. This is incredible music."

Tercer Mundo - Ser Nosotros Mismos LP


"Their 2012 first EP was championed and heralded around the world as a modern classic by those in-the-know, as one of the most seminal and powerful hardcore records of the current times. Expectations must be high for their 2014 first LP.....and expectations are met. A rough and raw sound that manages to stay powerful and listenable, a rough and raw performance that manages to stay tight and fluid, and most importantly, fucking powerful and memorable songs that are dynamic, tense, and brutal all at once."

EEL - Endless Fucker LP


"9 songs of DrillmessMadnessViolentPunkerScum which will leave you highly uncomfortable, somewhere along the lines of Cleveland HC meets UK82 meets Japan: TOTALLY WRECKING PUNK CORE."

Warthog - Prison EP


New York's Warthog present their second 7" taken from the same session as their debut 7" on Katorga Works. These tracks are dirty, filthy hardcore punk delivered with a snarl that takes cues from the uglier moments of USHC like YDI and Void as well as newer bands like Hoax, Cold Sweat and The Repos.

Gas Rag - Beats Off! MLP


"The gang is back with their first 12" that continues to pay homage to their Midwestern homeland whilst sending warm regards to the distant land of Scandinavia all the while churning out a special brand of aggressive rock. This is a platter full of frantic yet tasteful riffs, a savage vocal delivery, and professionally executed pre-teen drumming - producing an end result that will inevitably aid in the listener's self destructive course of choice. Try not to freak the fuck out."

S.H.I.T. - Collective Unconsciousness EP


"Sexual Humans In Turmoil (or our favorite: Skinheads In Tuxedos), more commonly known as S.H.I.T., debut with four urgently executed 100% uncommon hardcore punk tracks in the modern Toronto style. Collective Unconciousness speaks to a vast generation of sleeping strength and rusted mobility. It's time. Organize. Stand tall. Believe in your movement. Check your spelling. Honest, important music gets made less frequently then it should and gets noticed even less. Don't be a dullard, wake up and smell the S.H.I.T."

Blotter - Under Armour '77 EP


"Hey, Hardcore-Fans! Lose your minds! Here’s the real deal. Blotter is everything you want from a modern day hardcore punk band. Over the past few years, Austin, TX has seen a resurgence in young, quality punk bands. Blotter is one of the top tier groups of this new school of Texas hardcore and Under Armour '77, their debut vinyl effort, stands as some of the best work this scene has produced. Primordial ooze USHC at its finest.


Blotter is yet another new hardcore punk featuring members of Wiccans, Glue, Impalers and Creamers.


Blotter delivers just brutal, stomping stuff with a perfect, early 80s-sounding 8-track production. This five piece band rages through five songs in a little over five minutes. Fast precise hard hitting drums, loud distorted guitar that flirts with chaotic, noisy feedback, compliment dynamic and aggressive vocals that have just the right amount of snot and grit. Their sound touches on classic 80’s hardcore, whilst paying no tribute to any other HC band I’ve listened to in the last few years. This is unique, this is weird, fucked up and awesome! No filler on this EP – it’s all legit. No nonsense Hardcore in 2014."

Goosebumps - Scared To See A Doctor 7" EP


"NYC's hardcore scumlords return with their crowning achievement as a band, the Scared To See A Doctor EP. Equipped with a far superior recording and eschewing the traditional hardcore mold of their first 7", the band has begun incorporating elements of drugged-out punk classics such as Fang, Flipper, and even Butthole Surfers to create a wholly unique hardcore punk experience that could only come from Ground Zero."
