ANCIENT SKY - s/t LP

"Consisting of two pairs of close childhood friends with intertwining musical pasts, the group features current and former members of DARKEST HOUR, CITY OF CATERPILLAR, MAJORITY RULE, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, VERSE EN COMA and LITTLE GOLD, though they tread very different waters with ANCIENT SKY. Largely influenced by classic psychedelic rock, the band isn't afraid to visit bizarre and far-out worlds with unique sounds and structures that walk the line between fierce and subtle, and occasionally flirt with epic-ness, making for an interesting mix of heavy, hypnotic rock with plenty of hooks and Americana influences."

B-LINES - s/t 12"

"B-Lines follow-up their six song debut 7" with nine more short, sharp odes to awkwardness, alienation, and their hometown of Vancouver. Manic vocals atop perfectly simple and tuneful songs played with a frenzy that lands them in the sweet spot between hardcore and pop-punk. In keeping with their belief that LPs are for prog rock, it's all said and done before you'll have time to conceptualize your next snack." DERANGED / NOMINAL.

BAD SPORTS - kings of the weekend LP

"BAD SPORTS were formed in 2007 in Denton, Texas and their debut full-length was released in 2009 on Douchemaster Records following a string of 7"s, and showed the band's songwriting mature into a more refined pop territory without losing their edge. Prolific to a fault, BAD SPORTS members currently also play in the HIGH TENSION WIRES, OBN IIIS, VIDEO, the live incarnation of Mind Spiders, WICCANS, and many more. "kings of the weekend", the band's debut for Dirtnap Records, picks up right where the last one left off, showing a penchant for highly developed pop songwriting skills mixed with the speedy garage-punk/pop sound of their first LP.

BIRTH - s/t LP

"Devastatingly punishing debut here from Chicago dirtbags BIRTH! Bathed in the same filth as Brainbombs, Drunks With Guns, Flipper and Big Black; BIRTH take cro-magnon riffs and shred 'em to bits as the sky collapses around 'em and they're buried in a pile of smoldering barbed wire. Think heavy, sludgey as fuck, proto punk that sounds like the Electric Eeels covering the Stooges using Sabbath's gear if it were stolen from a scrap yard and made out of knives. Brutally harsh landscapes where beating the shit out of your instruments is therapy and masochism is fun. Ex Brain Handle. " DEAD BEAT.

BOOM BOOM KID - Musica Sin la Intervencion de Criste LP + flexi

"This LP+flexi is a neat and tidy summation of one of the most unique, compelling, and important South American punk bands, and in our opinion one of the absolute best. Drawing from each of the six Boom Boom Kid full-lengths, this release runs the gamut of what Boom Boom Kid is capable of, from sweet and beautiful pop-punk to blastbeat-and-breakdown hardcore to acoustic singer/songwriter to beat-oriented bedroom recordings and beyond, from explosive piss raw live recordings to pristine professional studio recordings, from minimalist weirdness to full-on melodic punk rockers and ragers, from classic hits that have been staples of their live shows for over a decade to sleeper hits tucked away in the 50th minute of the Frisbee CD to brand new songs that got their live debut here in America on their recent tour."

BRAIN TUMORS - s/t LP

"Minneapolis degenerates BRAIN TUMORS spit back with another angry ripper. Pure menacing HC barked over punishing barbaric thrash. Rippin' Guitar work all over this fucker hammering out some of the most raw and uncompromising music you'll ever hear. Mean music that's meant to hurt. And it does. If you dig shit like NEGATIVE APPROACH, GAUZE, LIP CREAM, or Clevo scums like, 9 Shocks Terror and The Inmates, this ones pretty much essential. Total face ripper all the way." DEAD BEAT.

THE CATALYST - swallow your teeth LP

"After seven long years, numerous mind-bending demos, eps, and splits, and a litany of tours criss-crossing the United States and Europe, Richmond, Virginia’s best kept secret THE CATALYST offer up their first full length album, Swallow Your Teeth, a noisy, mathy, spacey, heavy, feedback-soaked behemoth of sonic destruction. Still channeling a wide range of hardcore, punk, grunge, noise rock, and sludge influences and not afraid to show their love for NIRVANA, FUGAZI, SONIC YOUTH, THE JESUS LIZARD, BORN AGAINST and most of the AMPHETAMINE REPTILE back catalog, Swallow Your Teeth displays the band’s creative prowess and power fully matured and realized."

CHAOS DESTROY - lightning strikes twice LP

"There's something about Chaos Destroy's utter lack of pretense that makes their noise-drenched hardcore especially powerful. It's incredibly scary to know that there are cargo-shorted loners wandering around somewhere in the woods of suburban Maryland, making a vicious, overdriven racket that shakes John Olson of Wolf Eyes (a la choice quote, "The MOST horribly unmusical-rotten guitar speaker cones since the creation of “music.”")."

CLOUD RAT / XTRA VOMIT - split 12"

"Cloud Rat comes again with 9 new tracks of scathing venomous fury that you have come to know and love. They are the perfect mix of crushing hardcore and grindcore, with hints of black metal and the odd driving part that make it a unique I can’t get enough of this band, and these tracks just add to their impressive discography. Just in case you weren’t absolutely sure that Michigan was pissed off, Xtra Vomit spits out 14 tracks of their own blasting hardcore/punk. Their side is an absolute unrelenting assault - raw blasting filth with dual vocals spewing out anger and frustration with the world, but with a sense of hope and inspiration that I always get from these hardworking Michigan punks. These are screen printed on inside out re-used LP jackets to minimize resource use and come with a full lyrics sheet."

CLOUD RAT - moksha 12"

"Michigan grindcore punks CLOUD RAT are ready to exorcise the wickedest of demons with their newest album, MOKSHA. Ferocious and unrelenting, Moksha is a record infused with doses of melody and bludgeoning heaviness, tortured vocals and lyrics that dig up harsh memories. Still, through the jaws of darkness, Cloud Rat manages to salvage an ounce of hope within it all." IFB.

CREEM - s/t 12"

"This release marks the first 12" release from premier NYHC act CREEM. The band jumps light years ahead of the recording session that spawned a demo cassette and 7" single and creates a piece of music that is far and away its best material. Six originals and a cover of Boston/UK-influenced hardcore."

CR0SS - die forever LP

"Warmer Milks founder Ma Turner and visual artist R Clint Colburn formed CROSS in summer 2008 as a means for friends to express themselves both live and on tape through a total freedom of rock 'n' roll improvisation. Amidst a series of defining moments and wild/nomadic lifestyle choices, Turner & Colburn hit the road two weeks into being a band, going on a nationwide tour where the skeletons for "Die Forever" initially came to life. Upon returning home (Lexington, KY), the new CROSS formation further polished their sound (a range of subtly psychedelic styles, frantically varying from southern rock to death rock to glam, goth, and beyond), continued touring, and in the winter of 2011, recorded with Pete Townsend (Bonnie "Prince" Billy, King Kong) and Sean Sullivan (John Prine, Jack 'Cowboy' Clement, Dave Ferguson, Black Keys - engineer) at John Prine's Butcher Shoppe Studio in Nashville, TN. Their full-length "Die Forever" (following a self-titled/self-released double-cassette live album) is now available in a first edition of 500, with artwork by Lexington's own Robert Beatty of Hair Police/Three Legged Race."

CURTAINS! - deep in night city LP

"Debut outsider manifesto here from Chicago night warriors CURTAINS!. 'Deep In Night City' is one eerie mind fuck. Held together by a rhythmic post punk (almost gothey) foundation, this sucker throbs and bobs with shambolic deathrock lucidity. A creepy, delirious landscape where wacked out sci-fi rhetoric, formaldehyde misanthropy and paranoid, clausterphobic dementia are all integral pieces of the puzzle. Creating eerie soundscapes for deranged punk mutants and twisted new wave vampires, CURTAINS! unsettlingly spews 12 crypttic cuts that'll leave your skull in ruins. If your into stuff like the Electric Eels, Chrome, the Birthday Party, Gun Club or 45 Grave, you'll be all over this fucker."

DAYLIGHT ROBBERY / DEFECT DEFECT
/ FOREIGN OBJECTS - three way split LP

"This one-sided 12" is like three singles with no flipping! Defect Defect is old school punk featuring members of all your favorite PDX punk bands like The Observers, Autistic Youth, Artic Flowers, Clorox Girls, The Minds, etc. Daylight Robbery is a great Chicago band that sounds like a modern day X (Los Angeles) without the blues. Features ex-members of The Pedestrians. Foreign Objects should be familiar to those of you who have picked up past Dirt Cult Releases. Female fronted punk rock, like Kathlene Hannah fronting Black Flag."

DEVOUR - s/t LP

"Raleigh, NC's Devour were born from the ashes of Cross Laws, but rather than simply picking up where that band left off, the remaining members expanded to a 5-piece and followed the long southern tradition of adding traces of metal into their hardcore. What emerged was a record that is remarkably dense and complex, recalling the very best of the mid-80s trend of hardcore bands "going metal;" think Corrosion of Conformity's "Animosity" LP, Final Conflict's "Ashes to Ashes" and Septic Death's "Need So Much Attention.""SORRY STATE RECORDS.

$6.00

EXITHIPPIES / LOTUS FUCKER - split LP

"Exit Hippies is one of the most exciting raw punk bands around, carving out a totally unique scene and style of punk that knows no bounds and no fears, making punk music as they see fit, without compromise to style or expectation. Their material here is possibly their most brutal and harsh recordings yet, in the style that they are known and loved for. Absolute shit-fi unlistenable garbage Extreme Noise Terror/Sore Throat worship mixed with lo-fi minimalist acid/house techno. This recording contains some new songs (including a slow mosh jammer that I think if the first slow song they’ve ever written?), some old songs re-recorded (like usual), and all songs that make us grin from ear to ear and feel like life is still worth living.

Lotus Fucker produces their most claustrophobic, paranoid, and anxious material yet in their standard “noise hardcore” style, fueled by sleep deprivation, lack of sunlight, and poor dietary decisions. We will never be defined by others. Noise forever." SPHC.

$10.00

INSUBORDINATES - s/t LP

From Rockin' Rochester U.S.A. comes this blast of rock and roll fury that blends early punk with the more furious elements of primitive psych / surf rock into an essential punk platter, complete with honkin' sax work and completely twisted liner notes courtesy of the Feral Kid crew. This record is almost OOP, so now is your chance, today is your day! COWABUNGA RECORDS.

JOVONTAES - things are different here LP

"Jovontaes are Lexington, KY. They emerge from (and possibly define) my town's peculiar skate / kraut / nihil / garage axis, evoking the smell of stale Miller High Life and burning couches: stumbling match-grip surf rolls; howling, chorused-out guitar; droning Adderall haze; and a singer who makes Will Shatter sound like Scott Walker. Imagine Moolah playing at a beach party on the edge of the Kentucky River, big gray globs of unidentifiable garbage drifting silently past and the dense wet air becomes gridlocked with mosquitoes." -Trevor Tremaine (Hair Police)

KYKLOOPPIEN SUKUPUUTTO
likana valikoimassanne LP

"Brand new 5-song 12" from this great Finnish HC band. The a-side, which runs at 45RPM, is some fierce, classic-sounding Finnish HC that would fit quite well next to the Kieltolaki LP on your turntable. The b-side drops the speed to 33RPM for two creepy-sounding dirges that get back to the Die Kreuzen-esque weirdness of their earlier records. A great record from this band, and awesome packaging too, including a multi-color, screen-printed, fold-out sleeve."

LE FACE - isolation LP

"The elusive LE FACE are from a small suburban wasteland on the outskirts of the Los Angeles. LE FACE supposedly contains members of the Fault Lines and Mika Miko, but I can’t confirm, nor deny that. ‘Isolation’ contains 13 songs of what the band describes as “neo dada noise.” That’s not a far off description, but they definately have their roots firmly planted in punk rock. They take different aspects of the Urinals, Human Hands, Mentally Ill, Simply Saucer and the Electric Eels and put it through their own paranoid, unblanced filter. It’s nice to hear them deconstruct punk rock and spit it back out as their own psychotic, off kilter bastard child of rock n roll. Neo dada noise indeed." DEAD BEAT.

LICH / RESURRECTIONISTS - split LP

"comes in a dark and rough gatefold cover. you get 6 of the fastest and heaviest songs from RESURRECTIONISTS so far - recorded at the almighty tonmeisterei - and 11 minutes of brutal and mean bulldozer style powerviolence from LICH (w/members of BATTLE OF WOLF 359)." IFB.

LOTUS FUCKER - s/t LP

"The sounds of cicadas against crashing ocean waves at sunset. The process of seeking an answer through distortion and finding it within yourself.

MORALENS VAKTARE - s/t LP

"Frickin' A-Bomb dropped from the south side of Sweden. After a couplea pretty bad ass singles, MORALENS VAKTARE lose their kiddie shoes and check into the big leagues with this tough Rockin, back alley ripper. With their feet firmly planted in the Rock-ier side of Punk Rock, namely bands like the Real Kids, Gizmos and Heartbreakers; MORALENS VAKTARE's continue their guitar slinging, Riff-N-Roll onslaught. You can tell these fuckers've given ample turntable time to their old musty Kids, Hubble Bubble and The Pack records. As this scuzzy mid-fi, diamond in the rough is like a punk rock-snot rocket shot straight outta 1978. "
DEAD BEAT.

NEKROMANTIKER - s/t LP

"On their first LP, Nekromantiker continues to refine their fucking harsh noise punk style, mixing the song construction and style of classic noise punk heroes like Confuse and Gai with the sonic brutalities and effects-laden idealism of the Tokyo Sound System/New Smell scene (ie Exit Hippies, Filth Militia, Aostrapos, Stagnation, etc).

The entire LP feels like the finely crafted product of a band in their prime. Mixing mid-tempo jammers with short/fast/loud hardcore shockers, straight-forward drums with obtuse/experimenting harsh noise guitars, their highest-fidelity recording yet with their best 'ghouls/skeletons/mushroom people' aesthetic yet, the result is an excellent genre exercise in "noise punk" that manages to bring a new perspective and unique personality to the canon."

NOMOS - notes from the acheron 12"

"Follow-up to their highly praised demo, NOMOS return with a one-side 12” with an etched B-side. Six new rippers influenced equally by early 80's rippers like Poison Idea, Void, and Antidote and early 90's hardcore such as Citizen's Arrest, No Comment, and Infest.

UZI RASH - whyte rash time LP

"Left coast wack jobs UZI RASH continue to make some of the most unique and memorable music around. Sounding like a stripped down garage band diving head first into a bottle of cough syrup, UZI RASH blast irresistibly, unpredictive tunes from the outer viscera of the garage scene. It's all bottom heavy, gutted, swamp-fuzz slathered in their own shimmering, oddball charm that helps UZI RASH carve out there own little pantheon of coolness in wierdsville. Sloppy, shambolic cave man thud that'll sidle up nicely against your Cramps, Swell Maps, Cheater Slicks, and Pussy Galore records. A chaotic mess from start to finish." DEAD BEAT.

BAD PEOPLE - mean talkin' 7" EP

"Second and latest 7" from Buffalo's BAD PEOPLE. Continues on with the snot-filled, spazzed out sound of their "Pearls Before Swine" EP but I'd say "Mean Talkin" relies more on Biff's heavy, fuzzed bass tone to really nail BAD PEOPLE's mid-paced stomp into your skull. Calling this band garage punk would be off, yet the clean guitar tone and incredibly snotty vocals don't lend themselves to hardcore. BAD PEOPLE are truly something original, the genius runt of the litter." FERAL KID / FEEBLE MINDS / UT.

BURNING ITCH - skrewin' up my mind 7"

"Knoxville, TN, trio Burning Itch have only been at it for a minute yet already have a catalogue of solid intravenously connected KBD punk songs – so rock-hard it would make Fort Loudon look over its shoulder. Ian Lawrence, Mike Ellison, and Brad Fowler are heading down a dead end street full of gun-toting rednecks and 100 other bands trying to get their records heard. But just like there probably was a bash before Burnside fortified Knoxville, Burning Itch’s live show seems like an all-out-ready-to-the-end war." Three killers here. MEMETIC SOCIETY.

CHAOS CHANNEL - (Magic Bullet) That Works to Feed the Pig 7" EP

"Chaos Channel - How You’d Never Been So High? (But Then You’d Never Needed To Be?) CD from 2010 is possibly the best noisy punk record of our times, a really fresh and exciting take on a style they already mastered years ago. And this 7" single continues with these ideas. A meticulous recording of super catchy riffs fit into a bizarre and chaotic sense of songwriting and arrangements, with No. 6's instantly recognizable vocals belting out lyrics that border between absurd nonsense and high-art genius. Overall a totally unique punk rock experience for pogo and flight." SPHC.

If you have not heard La Misma before (what are you waiting for???), the band takes various European hardcore influences and feeds them through that now-familiar NYC filter to create a unique hardcore punk/World Music experience. This EP has some of the catchiest guitar parts you'll hear all year. which weave around rapid-fire Portuguese vocals for punk rock perfection. I loved the demo, but this is even better. This might have been released very early into the new year, but it will definitely be considered one of the best punk 7"s of the year." TOXIC STATE.

MANNEQUIN HOLLOWCAUST - slow infector 7"

"Mannequin Hollowcaust, desirable despite their moniker, glom onto a detached strain of dro-noise collage that moves around its constituent parts like kids forming cut-up shapes into different permutations. That’s Side A, the title trizzee; the flip, “The World is a Wasteland” (and isn’t it?), adheres to a similarly off-kilter notion of percussion while pixelated noise bugs crawl in and out of the track like it’s a dead deer’s skull. Pretty soon all is blurred by an encroaching hoard of noise buzzards that chew up every available inch of aural real estate until there’s no room left for anything else. It’s been a locked-groove life lately, and “Wasteland” is no exception. Time to cowboy up, gentlemen." HEAD DESTROYER.

NO TOMORROW - nuclear exposure 7"

"HARDCORE. On their 2nd record (their 1st was a split LP with OILTANKER), North Carolina's NO TOMORROW move away from the straightforward, brutal sound that they mastered early on and toward something much more interesting. These 2 songs retain the big production and brutal vocals of their earlier work, but add in some brilliant melodic lead guitar that immediately brings to mind the almighty DEATH SIDE. If you like searing leads, huge guitars, and gutteral vocals you're going to flip for these songs. The packaging on this one is also gorgeous, featuring two-color screened jackets printed by Sorry State and hand-stamped labels. Limited to 300 handnumbered copies." SORRY STATE.

"Satan's Satyrs return with their first studio release since 2012's "Wild Beyond Belief" and it is nothing short of electrifying. "Black Souls," the lead-off single from their upcoming "Die Screaming" LP is a wild ride out of the dungeon that spawned them into a three-dimensional orgy of forbidden delights. Swirling guitars, grinding bass, and thundering drums propel their sound to new heights of rock and roll abandon. Never has their potent blend of psychedelic-hard-blooze-rock-a-punk-a-rolla sounded so crystal clear, and yet so earthshakingly heavy. This release marks their first recordings as a full band, with none other than Don Zientara (Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Fugazi) of Inner Ear Studios at the board. Recorded 100% analog, with real instruments- this young power trio lays waste to bands twice their age. Limited edition on yellow wax." TRASH KING.

""Between Kentucky's TROPICAL TRASH and your Heart, lies the Breast. The follow-up release to last year's Fear of Suffering debut 7", Think Back Kick A Beer breaks bread on the breastplate and lets the loins girt around about the truth, substituting hot air balloons for lungs and cajones for brains, magnetizing the crotch-to-ego spinal disc-chordal dipole while stoning the erogenous zones and breathing life and id back into the exhumed corpse of Classic Rock, and when we say Classic Rock we are reading out loud from the book of S.S.T. --- a G.Ginn and Sonic speedball kegel-clubbing affront to the American Mall Obese."

"Wymyns Prysyn is the latest addition to the small, but growing discography of Scavenger of Death Records. The label specializes in documenting the raucous punk scene in Atlanta, and Wymyns Prysyn is one of the best bands from there—a scene which also includes Cops, the Black Lips, Carbonas, GG King, Ralph and the Bukkake Boys. I want to describe them as a noise punk band, but that might not do justice to the holy frenzy of feedback they bring to their new single, Pay Day. This is some of the best blown out rock ‘n’ roll around. Wymyns Prysyn channel plenty of the Killed by Death attitude and lo-fi production, but their new 7” is as tough and fun as Human Eye or the Puffy Areolas."

"This split 7" is absolutely crushing to say the least. Milwaulkee, WI's Enabler offer up two new songs on their side of the split which serve as a precurser to their latest LP entitled All Hail The Void. Enabler play a dark, punishing, and brutal style of hardcore influenced by bands such as Cursed, Rot In Hell, and His Hero Is Gone. The second band on the split is a band from Nashville, TN who formed in 2009. Yautja features members of Gnarwahl, Legion, and more recently Coliseum. Yautja play a great style of heavy and technical crust influenced metal. Their two songs on the split are dark, heavy and brutal as fuck. Yautja's influences are varied, but I get hints of Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Rorschach, and Acme in the band's style." BURNT BRIDGES.

ALCHOHOL PARTY / TROPICAL TRASH - split CS

"straight-up no frill, bread’n’butter punk rock. TT’s side opens with “Choogle Perception” which has a really chunky, meaty groove that chugs along like Sonic Youth’s “100%” with similar effect before “Leisure Expose” attempts to rip your face off with its vicious attack and throat-shredding vocals. Solid, kick-ass. Flip it over and you’ll be treated to Alcohol Party’s math-punk acrobatics, shape-shifting song structures and mind-bending precision, which is especially impressive given the raw power of the band. Some of the drumming is truly eye-popping, twisting patterns that sound like they require more limbs than available to the human body as current evolution has yet allowed. Wow, it’s good. Great, even." LOIN SEEPAGE.

BLACK KASPAR - schizo tech CS

"A harrowing feedback, a wave of cymbals crashing and murky low-end that evolves into a sprawling wail of a saxophone layered amongst a massive guitar noise thrashing about. This is what composes the first two minutes of “Space Truckin’ Part II” by noise/improv/experimental group Black Kaspar. Masterminded by Bill Zink and featuring members of Sick City Four and The Belgian Waffles this five-piece composes a relentless hour-long beast that never lets up but in moments welcomes and even appears to reward the listener’s patience and endurance. Amongst the low-end as the opener progresses there are hints of rhythms and free-form jazz peeking in. " LOIN SEEPAGE.

LAUGHBOY - s/t CS

"Another killer cassingle from Lumpy... this time the band is from the unlikely locale of Champaign, IL. Lumpy calls it "nasty hardcore with psychedelic distortion," but I'm getting a post-punk feel off of this. It's still very raw and very punk so I'm tempted to compare them to Anasazi, but the vocalist has a huge, Jerry A-esque bellow that makes it sound a lot tougher." Lumpy Records"

LOS PECADORES - escape from uranus

"Escape From Uranus is a continuous ride of atomic, punked up madness that does not relent one inch, surrendering only when the needle lifts off the end of side 2. Tracks fly by in a flurry of unhinged B-Movie quotes and Theremin squalls. If you’ve ever wondered what a surf punk band playing a metalloid version of Holst’s The Planets would sound like, Los Pecadores willingly oblige on Intergalactic Nuclear Fallout." LOIN SEEPAGE.

MAGIC MILK - s/t CS

"Kenny, the pantsless wonder, and his merry band of misfits are at it again. Magic Milk's got a fresh tape out on Jeffery Drag Records and it kicks a fat ass. With each release M.M. are putting more and more of the raw energy of their live shows into the recordings and this latest is their rawest yet. Here they offer up 15 tracks worth of their brand of off-kilter, driving garage rock." JEFFERY DRAG.


$3.00

MANIC SCUM - better left undead CS

"From the hills and polluted industrial wastelands of northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia comes the debut ep from Manic Scum. This recording is very brutal, everything is in your face and waiting to rip it off. Fans of bands like Repulsion, Napalm Death, Autopsy, and most grind/death freaks will find something to like in these 11 and a half minutes."

SALAD INFLUENCE - S.T.T. CS

"This is a trio that brainstorms a coin of four sides, somewhere on a mission between the missing links of Nuggets and Pebbles; a bridge in the examination of psychedelia that exists in modern Kentucky music." BRAVE CAPTAIN.


$3.00

SARA LEE / GIVING UP - split CS

"This is a perfect soundtrack for the tail-end of a tailspin Summer, that weird Air of bittersweet vibes and lovely-Heavy that comes right before the rebirth and return of the clammy skeleton grip that is the Midwestern Fall. This's like a suicide-cocktail that your sketchy Junior High friend whips up in his parents liquor cabinet while his back is turned to you: an unexpected concoction of both abrasive elements and potent sweetness, a headfirst mixed drink that turns out to be even stronger and sharper and stranger and smarter than you ever could have hoped for. it kicks right in all the best ways and it leaves the only Aftertaste that matters: wanting more... a lot more. it's an Instant Replay incarnate." SOPHOMORE LOUNGE.


$5.00

STOIC VIOLENCE - demo CS

"Debut demo from the newest southern California HC band. Mixing elements of classic USHC along the lines of NYHC and the Boston Crew but mixing in the manic and unhinged vocals of Die Kreuzen or Rorschach. The band pounds out 3 songs in under 4 minutes while the vocalist yells his head off about waiting for death and hating people who change what they are to what people want them to be. Real hardcore for real punks."
