During springtime 2019 these two german bands toured together and so it was just a small step further that they were willing to share this one piece of vinyl that will be brought to you by 7DEGREES RECORDS and MERCILESS RECORDS!
CANCER CLAN was formed in 2005 out of the ashes of CRUDE BE.
They describe their music simply as Blastpunk, but it’s so much more. On a skeleton of Grindcore they add crust, punk, hardcore and even have a weakness for thrashy riffs. In total this becomes a highly energetic, fast as fuck, at times heavy as lead entity of skull-splitting musick!
After releasing a couple of demo CDs and 7"s and touring Europe with the likes of WEEKEND NACHOS and BLOCKHEADS they released their first full lengh in 2015. In 2017 a SPlit 7“ with GOD’S AMERICA followed.
Three new songs and a Deutsch-Punk Classic cover will blast your speakers!
Recorded and mixed by Sebi during summer and fall 2018
Mastered by by Falk Andreas at Blank Room Audio Berlin
DESTEUFELS – humanoid but bigger … evil, ugly – bowlegged and tremendous … deeply beneath, a greyish black color … coarse, dissonant, loud and fast … the three, praising decay and lunacy as a triumvirate…
DESTEUFELS are a Metalpunk Band that started years ago. What you get is D-Beat-driven classical and classy Stenchcore. At times they rock really hard, on other occasions the thunderous double kickdrum provides the heavyness and the thrown in blastbeats do the rest to make you feel at times like you’re in the UK during the eighties.
Following on several demos, 5 new Songs are pressed on a vinyl record.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in Ali’s studio duringMay/June 2018 in Jena/ Germany.

CAINO is a melodic crust trio from Palermo, Italy. Formerly members of Values Intact, L.E.A.R.N. and Cadaver Mutilator started a painstakingly research that led them to a dark, melodic core into the powerful crust music rhythms and sludge thickness. CAINO's "Exegesis" speaks both about the lies that religion took over mankind in history and the daily lobotomia that people's ignorance still sufferfor fans of: all pigs must die, wolfbrigade, victims)
Next exit Bremen. Hell yeah, 22 years is a f**king long time and it’s hard to believe that the recording of these nine tracks are that old - and yet, the "1996 reconstructed" stands the test of time - it's still as fresh and vital as when it was recorded. CAROL was permanently disbanded in 1997 after their brief existence and was another legendary band of the almighty mid-90s Bremen scene, with members involved in bands such as SYSTRAL and MÖRSER. It's very difficult to find the words to describe their music - they obviously take all kinds of elements from hardcore and metal just to create the most perfect mutation of all of them in the form of songs that come alive as new and unique entities. Their blend of discordance and precise, barrelling riffs, laid out within the framework of frantic bursts of violence and chronic brutality, combined with the most ear-splitting vocals around is what CAROL was all about. What really sets CAROL apart was their absolute, unrelenting passion for the chaotic brand of hardcore they played. "1996 reconstructed" is what you've been waiting for: a collection of nine lost songs (two previously released tracks from the "cry now, cry later vol.4" compilation and their split 7" with STACK) and seven new tracks from the same recording session in 1996. Everything has been remastered for pristine sound quality, while maintaining the raw, frenetic feel the band had always given off. Listening to this album repeatedly just might kill you, but at least you will die with a smile on your face. Do not pass on these lost songs - fury, emotion, intensity, it's all here in spades. CAROL has helped to shape a style that has been imitated over decades by countless bands but remains unequalled. There’s no better time to (re)acquaint yourself with a band that’s gone, but certainly not forgotten. REGULAR BLACK vinyl (limited are sold-out) comes with an inlay, a small poster and includes a digital download card with the three additional tracks from the 7".
Texas duo Cara Neir return with “Portals to a Better, Dead World”, their first full length to appear on vinyl. Fans of the band won’t be disappointed as its Cara Neir at their best. “Portals…” is full of instantly catchy songs and ferocious riffs.
“The fact that a band can bring together so many different sounds and still sound cohesive is a laudable feat” – The Inarguable
the first full length to appear on vinyl.
I do love it when bands sum up their sound in their album title, and here, Denver, CO crusty grind/sludge guys Catheter do just that on their third album. And doom violence (as in power violence) is apt, as on this, their first full-length since 2005, the band lay down a very raw assault that goes from raging, Relapse-style grindcore to crusty sludge to sloppy, squat-level doom. Sometimes, as in "Prosthetic Mind" and "Conspiracy Control," a bit of a groove is even attained, before the tunes devolve into double-bass-led, quick-time death metal stomp, then Slap-a-Ham-worshipping power violence and then grind, always the grind. With this album, the band firmly place themselves in with the Phobias, Goatsbloods and Agents of Satans of the world, which is great company to keep. All this and a smart 28-minute run-time? And a song called "Doom to Grind"? Uh, yes please. Limited on 591 copies!
I.D. belgian grindpunx are back with a blast!
CoD: In your face oldschool grind mayhem!
The sicilian cavemen from CAVERNICULAR are back with their second release in order to show "Man's Place in Nature". More anger, more speed and more hardcore attitude than on its slightly more metallic predecessor make this record quite a dazzling experience that fans of 90s grindcore should dig.
This is the final record from the Insect Warfare-influenced, vicious Florida grindcore outfit Cellgraft. After their final show on September 1st at the Brass Mug in Tampa, Florida they're calling it quits. They've generously left this unrelenting jagged shard of Grindcore as their final word. Their records have been tremendous, truly doing the grind scene proud, and it's really a shame that they've split - especially considering they deserve a ton of attention for their hard work and dedication to face shredding Grindcore over their short 3 year existence.Self-titled and raw as you could ask for, this record is as short as any GridLink release and approaching their level of might and ferocity, while sidestepping technicality and barreling head-long into darkened, brutal speed. Outside of the opening track "False Sequence of Value" there is only one other track of the 17 here that approaches one minute in length. The opener is also the slowest you'll ingest too, at least for the first minute as it clobbers you with a maniacal set of distorted groves.
EU / Holy Goat Edition - pink/light
“Swatta” is a record that has a focus and purpose in its sound and message . It’s a record where one will find everything from Chepang sonically and collaboratively. It takes its inspiration from a Japanese philosophy called “IKIGAI”. Ikigai (ee-key-guy) is a Japanese concept that combines the terms iki, meaning “alive” or “life,” and gai, meaning “benefit” or “worth. ikigai is a state of wellbeing that arises from devotion to activities one enjoys, which also brings a sense of fulfillment.
This sound and journey to finding the purpose were captured & documented in various phases during the last 3-4 years by various engineers/artists in their studios & homes. Each lending
their own raw emotion and time into it . Thus the record feels like it’s a book with 4 major chapters (Side A, B, C and D) and many subchapters (songs) . Filled with ever changing emotions
and sound on each chapter and sub-chapters, yet UNITED and flowing naturally to project the story towards the journey to finding the purpose in life with hope and happiness .
Each side will be released between now and official release date of 07/07/2023 to present and document the essence of “Swatta” and its various sides .
The first full length assault from Nepal’s “immigrindcore” battalion. Driven by breakneck dual drum blasting and the blazing fervor of their message delivered from the turmoil of their homeland. A twisted cacophony of riff carnage and the desperate howling frenzy of multiple singers. Impassioned Ghurka grindcore commandos igniting a cleansing fire.
9/10 "Vital shit for stressful times." -Decibel Magazine
CHOKE is an Oakland-based duo that leaves no Nazi jaw unsmashed in their pursuit of punching the fash and pissing off their sympathisers. This is not their first release, but has shaped up to be among the best powerviolence records of 2020!
Throughout the 12 minutes of this record you’ll hear heaps of stomping breakdowns, ruthless blasts of grinding rage and jackhammer California-style powerviolence in its most classic state. If you expect some over the top macho, tough-guy display of power, in addition to the use and abuse of various skits scattered throughout the entire record, you won’t be wrong either. All this is entirely intentional, though. Imagine a mosh-fueled, testosterone-filled version of the HIRS—sharing the hatred for cops, racists and authority of all kind—and you’ll love this record immediately.
Clocked Out are from north of the border and have been making killer thrashy punk for years now. This is their first full-length and is bursting with energy, tightness and attitude. They regularly garner comparisons to Clevo-style US hardcore like H100s and 9 Shocks Terror. Brutal, throat-wrecked vocals howling over high-charge, riff-tastic hardcore punk, with just the right amounts of mid-tempo rocking and just the right flashes of guitar lead. Memorable songs captured with a heavy production, a perfect execution of "hardcore punk".

The new masterpiece from grinders Cloud Rat is next level! Guitarist Rorik Brooks believes Threshold to be the pinnacle of his band's career thus far: "To me, Threshold feels like a response to all of our earlier material. I think we finally have a successful distillation of all our seemingly disparate influences, into what I feel is our best work so far." Pressed on Blue vinyl.

Moksha is an absolutely insane, ripping piece of blastbeat driven grindcore, fueled by 90's screamo-violence, punk, various kinds of metal and all kinds of other noises. Lyrically, the songs shift between personal and sociopolitical topics (often painful and explicit dealing with issues of drugs, neglect, emotional/physical/sexual violence, abandonment, poverty, racism/sexism/homophobia, etc), usually delivered poetically rather than straightforward.
A really intense and epic listening experience!

The Endless Blockade is dead and, in their wake, Column Of Heaven has risen. C.O.H. has Nolan and King from the Blockade lineup continuing on, at this point in their development, in a similar fashion to the later period Blockade material (i.e. "Primitive"). Six songs picking up right where Endless Blockade left off, Column Of Heaven released the more-than-impressive "Ecstatically Embracing All That We Habitually Suppress" demo in 2011, and has now returned first time on vinyl. While Endless Blockade hinted and flirted with the mix of noise/experimental music with powerviolence, this 12" sees those ideas taken to their endpoint, fully incorporating noise, dynamic samples, extra instrumentation and experimental soundscapes into a metal-tinged powerviolence framework. Blasts of harsh noise and brutal hardcore mix with quieter, creepier atmospherics to make for an engaging and powerful listen from start to finish. Limited edition of 400 copies.
An extinguished flame burns brightly still. Posthumous final gasp from Canadian stalwarts Column of Heaven coupled with LA's resolute psychedelic freaks, Suffering Luna. A swirling cacophony of grinding primitive shrieks erodes into waves of static noise, expanding endlessly into the void. Surrendering to oblivion, darkness into light.
20 songs of blasting Japanese power-violence, taking the genre to a new, almost metaphysical level. After honing their unique style of unrelenting fastcore on multiple EPs and Split EPs, Osaka's COMPLETED EXPOSITION drop 20 songs of crazed time changes at break-neck speeds. Gatefold cover with original artwork. To cite their motto: "Explore the Unlimited Possibility of Neo-Power Violence." A-fucking-men. Limited to 500 copies.

"Rise of the Taurus" is the second full length Album of Corova. This record is rooted in the musical traditions of different bands such as Neurosis, Mastodon and Entombed. It´s a progressively creation and a fusion of these sound universes resulting in a brute-fragile and obscurely grotesque mixture of Doom, Sludge, Noisecore and Postmetal. Additional stickers, a poster (only vinyl version) and a download code for mp3´s are included. (bastardized)
« Phœbus », the new album of Cortez, confirms the come back of the Swiss trio, just after the release of their 10’’ split with Plebeian Grandstand, on the labels Throatruiner Records, Basement Apes Industries and Get A Life ! Records. With this album Cortez is again proving that you can get out of the habitual pattern of power trio(guitar, drums and voice), and still burps noise-hardcore fury and incandescent anger. The band recently reorganized itself with the arrival of Antoine Tinguely on the guitar (ex-Berserk For Tea Time), Samuel Vaney, former guitarist, is now supporting the band as composer / mixer. Recorded partly in the REC Studio of Serge Morattel in Geneva, drums, and partly in their own rehearsal space, guitars and vocals, this new album is the result of hard work, giving the band big freedom in creation and the possibility to fully assume the production process. Complete independence in learning, creating and finalizing the record.
”Phoebus” reaffirms the taste of Cortez for saturation, but also explores a wide range of possibilities. Like a threatening and corrosive mist the aggressive sound still remains intense, melancholic and emotional. The artwork accompanying this new album has been entrusted to Dehn Sora, bringing a subtle spark to this dark masterpiece…
As a reminder, Cortez, formed in 2001, was revealed in 2005 and the horrific world of their first album “Initial”, was praised by unanimous reviews. After the release followed several tours in Europe, during which the group forged a reputation of exceptional performers. Sharing the stage with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, ISIS, UNSANE, JESU, GOJIRA, BURST, THE OCEAN … each occurrence tended to confirm and affirm their originality and mastering of their subject.
HARDCORE. The four-piece from Milan, Italy have succeeded in creating a coherent, concise and abrasive hardcore record. "coarse", their 2nd full-length is a fantastic example of how a straight-forward hardcore record should be. It's visceral and unapologetic in its delivery and approach. Roughly 30min. - 11 songs, and a whole lot of pissed-off emotion - blasting, roaring shouts packed with a whirlwind of riffs going through a mixture of genres. Since their inception in 2012, COUNCIL OF RATS can be described as a blend of everything that hardcore has always stood for. Despite the fact that every song is a confrontation, there’s also a great deal of sensitivity contained the tracks. The emotional sensitivity doesn’t undermine the pure rage. Compared to their early work, "coarse" shows the band at their most confident, focused, and most importantly, their most viscerally impacting. "coarse" does not fail to deliver prompt and hyper effective firebrands. It’s fast and inflexible, conscious, angry and most of all, pissed as hell. "coarse" allows no time to catch your breath. COUNCIL OF RATS strikes fiercely and it’s still pretty good to hear such bands carry the torch of engaged music within the hardcore spectrum. Mastered by Brad/Audiosiege to get a scintillating result - the kind of record that hammers you from front to back - riffs aplenty, socio-political themed lyricism and musical complexity ensure an avid listener won’t get bored. Regardless of what you’re into, this is a record you have to hear. It's fast, it’s hardcore, it’s punk! Vinyl comes with an extra poster and includes a digital download Card.
Council Of Rats is a four piece band from Milan, Italy who formed in April of 2012. Council Of Rats features members of Seesaw and La Crisi. Council Of Rats play a scathing, unhinged, and venomous style of hardcore. Council Of Rats can loosely be compared to bands such as Glasses, Jungbluth, No Statik, and Punch. After releasing a stellar six song EP in April of 2013, Council Of Rats have returned with their debut ten song LP. Ill Weathers features ten songs of blistering no-frills hardcore that is impressive as hell. Seriously, Ill Weathers is completely off the hook and will definitely scratch your hardcore itch.

"Parisian filthy metallic hardcore act COWARDS returns with "Hoarder", the follow-up to 2012’s "Shooting Blanks And Pills". This new EP was recorded by producer Francis Caste (Kickback, Eibon, Arkhon Infaustus) at Sainte-Marthe Studio and illustrated by respected tattoo artist/illustrator Jean-Luc Navette. Five new tracks of throat-ripping hardcore/sludge, including a massive cover of 16 Horsepower's «Blessed Persistence»."
"Gathering parisians with an already strong pedigree in dark and heavy music, COWARDS regurgitates gutter hardcore, unhealthy sludge/doom and nauseous black metal in “Shooting Blanks And Pills”, their deeply raw and anxiogenic debut release. Only six months were needed to give birth to this full-length, monstrosity with a desperate urban feeling, bridge between the knife-in-the-heart crudeness of Eyehategod or Kickback and the majestic darkness of bands like Deathspell Omega or Thou. With a sound carrying smells of pissy streets and the dry blood you get for a sidelong glance, producer Francis Caste have perfectly catched the gist of these 38 minutes, recreating this forced apnea in a bile tank with a no frills approach.
Cowards features current and ex-members of Sickbag, Death Mercedes, Hangman’s Chair, Eibon, Glorior Belli, Dacast, Colossus of Destiny…
Würzburgs outstanding OMEGA MASSIF disbanded already some time ago. But this end was just a beginning for the members of OMEGA MASSIF. One part founded the band PHANTOM WINTER, another joined BLACKSMOKER and now also the last member (Michael Melchers - Guitar) releases a new project called CRANIAL. He found new partners in Julian (Bass, Vocals), Cornelius (Drums) and Bastian (Guitar, Vocals) and they began in late 2014 to write their first songs. The results are two heavy, sludgy Postmetal songs, which continue, where OMEGA MASSIF stopped. An epic, very consistent and heavy atmosphere builds up and will be brigtened up by clear melodic guitar lines. The band manages to create a great build up of suspense so that the songs never become boring or monotonous. Forget about all modern trends and hypes. This is classic heavy Postmetal. Two song with a lenghth of (each) over 9 minutes, don't create a feeling of an EP here. Other bands release albums with a shorter duration. The songs were recorded under the control of Tobias Anderko at the Blank Disc Studios. Mix and Master by Postmetal-God Roland / Tonmeisterei. Dead Ends will be released on CD, Vinyl, Tape and Digital. The Vinyl version has a screenprinted B-Side and the logo punched in the cover!
CREEPING CORRUPT - Brutal death metal worship for SUFFOCATION & ABORTED style. Made by punx from HOMOMILITIA, EVIL, WOJTYLA, DROWNED CHILD.
HELLISHEAVEN - raging crust metal blessed by DISCHARGE, BOLT THROWER, STORMCROW. 5 songs including STATE OF FEAR cover The Dreadlord! Done by dudes from SUFFERING MIND and H.407.
Split probably two most brutal punk bands in Poland nowadays!
In early 2014 members of Finisterre, Landverraad, Leechfeast and Lawine met up to create a new ferocious Project called CREVASSE. After their demo tape and several liveshows this is now their first output on 12" vinyl. Expect six loud, fast and angry songs that somehow hard to place in the right box. If you like D-Beat and chaotic fast hardcore and you are fed up with daily life, patriarchy and the world as a whole, you should definetly check this out. I once called it doomish powerviolence, but this doesn't really fit…think of Masakari or Heartless mixed with Catharsis and a touch of Punch.
The record comes in a thick, rough cardcoard cover incl. a huge poster and download card.
"Crows from Dublin, Ireland absolutely bring some of the most satisfyingly crunchy hardcore I've heard in a long time. Ten songs of anger, power, mosh, breakdowns, singalongs that sound catchy and killer. I heard the singer once moshed through a wall, so I knew I had to release it."
DOOM/SLUDGE. "ganz ins herz" is the 2nd full-length by CROWSKIN, a
Potsdam-based five-piece of gals and guys who grew up somewhere between
SABBATH heaviness and hardcore anger. Deeply rooted in the d.i.y. punk
ethos and influenced by classic and contemporary sludge-metal stuff,
they add a destructive noisy edge to all this and come up with an
ultimate expression of hateful loneliness and despair. Singer Alexandra
von Bolz'n expresses once more the disappointment of the human
incapacity to interact and cooperate with exalted Stefan-Georgian
lyrics, performed in ferocious and haunting screams and growls beyond
usual human voice experience. The band teams up with merciless assaults
of tormenting steamroller grooves and no-motion funeral dirges, built up
to monstrous guitar walls, notorious bass rumbling, pounding drums and
an ubiquitous Bonham-style ride cymbal - all this painfully soaked in
feedback and noise. The vinyl includes 5 lenghthy pieces that bring you
to a journey through the depths of human thoughts and feelings, enabling
you to release your anger and let your hatred destroy. The CD
additionally contains the previously released contributions to the "rot
box" and the "a fucking tribute to hellhammer" compilations. CROWSKIN is
proud being able to release this new album with the help of friends they
know for a long time and on labels whose previous releases paved the way
to the band's current outcome. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
Doom on, tune down, pass out! [PK #071]
Crude B.E are a Potsdam HC - Cult band, grind and heavy af, members went on later to form bands like Y, Cyness, Chainbreaker, Crowskin, Cancer Clan, etc etc...

Got some in from Merciless Recs, I had this LP since it came out, definitely a high recommendation!
In Germany it's hard to find artists working as hard as the Crushing Caspars for their career. The Rostock based-fourpiece played more than 1000 shows in 20 years. They appeared on famous festivals like With Full Force or Rock am Ring and have toured all over Europe with artists like Agnostic Front or as support for the mighty Suicidal Tendencies on the EMP Persitence Tour 2012. Besides that the Crushing Caspars released eight high-quality Albums and EPs. Their very first full-length record "Full Flavour" was released by the band in 2001 on Compact Disk. Within the time Caspars sold more than 10.000 copies of this legendary record without the help of a label. As this one is sold out Bastardized Recordings are proud to announce a re-release of “Full Flavour” as Vinyl-LP! The band describes its sound as Baltic Sea Hardcore, a sweeping mixture of Hardcore, Punkrock, Rock'n'Roll and a bit Metal in the vein of their personal heroes like Motörhead, S.O.I.A., Blood For Blood or Gorilla Biscuits - just to name a few. Influences you can explore in songs like "Caspars Attack" that are still highlights on every Caspars-Show and represents what the band stands for: energy, a good mood and a lot of fun on stage!
Awesome fresh Grind/Death Metal band from Houston, Texas, which formed in 2014 with members/ex-members from other Houston bands like Mindboil, Insect Warfare, P.L.F., Turbokrieg, Peasant, Niburu and War Master. This is their debut full length released by RSR. The music speaks for itself, with tasty riffs that contain a nice blend of death metal and full throttle blasting, like a barrage from a Katyusha Rocket Launcher. Fast, destructive, brief, yet devastating. Wasteland come - Wasteland goes...this is GULFCOAST GRINDCORE! For fans of Napalm Death and Repulsion
The newest album of this Polish band playing excellent blend of punk rock and rock'n'roll. 11 songs that will appeal for fans of TURBONEGRO, GLUECIFER and DANZIG!
