Wiccans - Sailing A Crazy Ship LP

"Another flat-out ripper from Denton, Texas' WICCANS. Nine raging cuts of metallic-tinged hardcore mayhem featuring members of BAD SPORTS, RADIOACTIVITY, and VIDEO. Previous LP on Katorga Works. "Recorded by Denton legends MARK RYAN and JEFF BURKE (of Marked Men), the nine tracks are fast and ferocious, lacking the slow dirges of previous full-lengths. The boys are sailing fast, but maintaining complete control over their ship. The title track's intro gives listeners the uncertain, cautious sensation of a vessel lifting off, but a galloping pogo beat confirms that Wiccans have reached outer space, and are cutting through the cosmos at light-speed. This band gives me hope that hardcore can still be inventive and creative, while staying true to being what it is: angry, destructive music. Basically this is the best Wiccans record yet, and you'd be a fool not to pick it up."

Tigress - Self Titled EP

"Dig it: the harbingers of Chicago hardstyle are here. Tigress, the soundtrack to a night spent up to no good, of bottles breaking windows, of a cop taking a brick to the teeth. A whirlwind of camo and jerseys, this is the antidote to a billion flaccid bands touting brotherhood, the antithesis of self-indulgent essays by aged-out, boutique hardcore curators. 

Dig it: Are you caught in a mosh? Or is the mosh caught in you?"

Negando Nuestra Existencia - Esto no es violencia, es la guerra contra el olvido


Saturday, May 6, 2017


"Absolutely furious Icelandic hardcore punk. And for you non-natives the title Ofbeldi translates to Violence which is a very appropriate description of the sounds you'll find here. Twisting dagger fuzz guitar, murder-chorused bass, brass knuckle beats and vocals that melt a body down like an acid bath. A real mean ear fucker. "

Touring the US in July 2017 so watch out for that!!

Straightjacket Nation - Self Titled MPL



"Forming in 2004, Straightjacket Nation (featuring members of other important Australian bands such as Pisschrist, Total Control and The UV Race) have long been considered by many to be among the best that modern hardcore has to offer. Whether rearing their ugliness live or remaining underground and birthing releases sporadically, Straightjacket Nation absolutely DESTROY - undeniably deserving the cult following they've earned over the years, and the cult is alive. 

2017 sees the release of the second Straightjacket Nation LP. Intimidating and foul, ridden with feedback, lurching and slamming, screeching and boiling over. There's no hint of youthfulness here, instead lurks a fearful incarnation of hardcore punk at it's darkest and most foul. One moment disciplined, the next a sprawling chaos. Straightjacket Nation stands alone, a horrible entity carved out in stone. Mean. Strict. Remorseless. Vengeful. Harsh. SJN. 

File between GAUZE 面を洗って出直して来い , POISON IDEA Pick Your King era and LIP CREAM great hits."

"Excellent debut from this new Charlottesville, VA group. Three tracks of furious, midpaced punk that really manages to stand out from the pack. I'm honestly having a bit of trouble naming any singular band or scene that Haircut draws direct influence from, which is a pretty damn tough feat these days! A couple of these folks played in Animal Planet, so if you were into AP's left-of-centre HC punk approach, Haircut is definitely worth reaching for. However, I've really got to applaud the originality, strong production, and performance on this demo. These three tracks lay the foundation for a strong followup release yet have plenty of replay value of their own."
Feeling some srsz Annihilation Time/Greg Ginn riffage in this one.
