Mullan Keskeltä, the long awaited second full length album from Finland’s Haapoja has arrived! A dissonant siege of blackened angular upheaval, the trio digs a much deeper groove on the new album amidst their trademark labyrinthine spidery riffing and builds the tension until erupting into exultant open passages of soul crushing depth. FFO: Deathspell Omega, Mgla, Rorschach, Ved Buens Ende.
Stunning debut full length from Finland's Haapoja. Blackened angular hardcore that manages to keep the rhythm in the midst of dissonant chaos. A rare mix of being technically complex while still maintaining the groove. Rorscach meets Deathspell Omega?
From Mass Deadening (CA): "Progressive, plodding, and selectively blasting riff-filled blackened hardcore from Finland that recalls the unhinged aspects of Rorschach crossed with the likewise uncategorizeable sensibilities of German bands like Acme and Systral; meaning cascading and open guitar riffs over a mechanically perfect rhythm section, delivered with relentlessly clinical precision."

Vancouver’s enduring traffickers of sludge defilement return with their third full length album and fifth solo release, appropriately titled “V”. Six tracks of churning riff demolition clocking
in at almost 40 minutes in a sleek package that continues the core aesthetic of the band emblem, this time in a black on black motif utilizing a spot gloss UV print.
“Haggatha excavate primordial doom from deep beneath the Earth’s crust, conjuring some lamentable ancient devastation. Desperate, ruinous sludge from a cataclysmic prehistory that claws it’s way back into the folds of the reptile consciousness in a torrent of hopeless murk."
Three years down and Harrowed finally return from a self imposed exile. What have the clandestine three piece learned during their time in the wilderness? Has isolation nurtured the seed of compassion for the fate that awaits their fellow man as the western world seems intent on it’s own destruction? Have they have returned with the fire with which to illuminate humanities path back to compassion and reason? Have they fuck.
Harrowed’s second album ‘Chaotic Nonentity’ feels less like a collection of songs and more like a descent through the nine circles. Thirteen reflections upon the structural damage inherent in the human condition.
Opener Stark Terrors is a jarring ram raid of shattered glass riffs and rabid apostate gospel. Vocalist Seb Leslie’s godless bellow is unrelenting throughout. One Hundred Years lyrics read like extracts from a generations suicide note. The poetry of a man truly at the end of his rope. It is the last baring of splintered teeth. The final act of defiance against a world spiraling out of control. Tearing at the hand
that nails the coffin lid shut.
Despite the crushing nihilism that creeps from every pore of this record, it’s not without texture. There are tiny flickers of light; occasional flourishes of spartan melody claw their way to the surface beneath the sheets of howling guitars and funeral drums. Shards of hope lurking in the depths of Disconnexion’s mournful lament. These moments of acute contrast is best described by Harrowed themselves in Inauthenticide as a “bloom in the dirt of the human race”.
Harrowed have not allowed the scars of Into Inferno to heal. Have not allowed the passage of time to dilute their collective scorn one drop. In tearing out the sutures of those old wounds to expose the nerve damage and create a death knell so raw and belligerent fit to chronicle these apocalyptic times.
Feast Of Tentacles / SuperFi Records
Smart, hefty UK trio making monolithic slabs of tight hardcore like Coalesce jamming Entombed covers.
Straight out the gate Harrowed unleash a blizzard of down tuned metal shards, reminiscent of Trap Them’s frenzied assault or even the bruising chaos once wielded by the mighty Coalesce in their prime. It’s a shrieking, howling storm of metallic hardcore in the old sense of the phrase, a relentless barrage of focused rage, indeed the level of sustained violence on this record is truly staggering. It reminds us just how terrifying the wrath of the true outsider is.

LP but here you get different versions or mixes as well as unreleased material.

Total Crust Devastation! If you like atmospheric, dark and melancholic crust, look no further. This split LP is packed to the brim with intensity and desperation.

Thrash is back and so is one of the original cult-bands of this genre: HIRAX return to this new age of thrash to teach the new school a valuable lesson in classic ass-kicking with their 3rd album "The New Age of Terror". Taking the epic power of melodic old school pounding, HIRAX forge a perfect combination of great musicianship and clever song-writing into a forceful thrash-attack. Hailing from Orange County, California the band left a strong mark in the almighty Bay Area scene after its early founding in 1984. HIRAX quickly managed to gather an extremely dedicated following, which has gained them their undeniable cult-status even through some years of inactivity and several line-up changes. HIRAX are back and they are here to reclaim the throne...
buzz-saw guitars, bludgeoning drums, and breakdowns that scream "kiss me on my bloody head". they are the defenders of true hardcore spite and genuine danger. Mosh-heavy songs of empowerment and anger are forged using a degraded distillation of vintage Alan Blake-style riffing backed with driving, militaristic drums, and the feral anomie typically reserved for a vocalist like Mike IX Williams.
this lp compiles their 3 7"es and the song from their split 7" with sewn leather and a track from their s/t tape
Massachusetts based hardcore outfit THE HOMEFRONT has quite a pedigree of previous bands: HAVE HEART, GUNS UP and VERSE. And if you've enjoyed the output of any those bands, you'll be greatly pleased with THE HOMEFRONT's debut offering, "Sacrifice". THE HOMEFRONT play highly energetic and powerful modern-hardcore with a melodic twist - not unlike WITH HONOR or MODERN LIFE IS WAR and the above mentioned bands. The band managed to play over 100 shows in 2 years of their existence, with much more planned upon the near future. This limited to 525 copies vinyl-edition contains 12 (2 additional bonus tracks) amazingly written songs sure to blow you away.
Repress of HOPE DRONEs self-titled album. Comes in Black or limited clear vinyl.
HOPE DRONE are from Brisbane/Australia and play some kind of modern black metal, which is anywhere between Deafheaven an Ash Borer.
Straying away from the saccharine post-whatever trending the genre today, Hope Drone’s self-titled achieves in marrying the existential, woe-filled black metal vertebrae with an interesting interpretation of what some elitists might refer to as a desecration of the genre - though there is no such desecration here.
Hope Drone typifies its approach towards convention with no emphasis upon innovation. Rather, this release focuses on further segmenting and stylising the, at times, flourishing Australian black metal scene.
The cacophony of blast beats and apathy drenched dissonance gives a sense of home that is often lost from the new generation of black metal releases - you won’t doubt for a second what genre you are being subjected to here.
Cvltnation said about the album: An album that is fresh, invigorating and captivating. Not to be missed. Amazing debut.

HUATA and BITCHO decide to form an alliance to release this split LP under the sign of psychedelism. One year after their first full lenght ("Atavist of Mann", 2012), HUATA from Brittany comes back with two new tracks, a new psychedelic sludge dimension for this occult doom-stoner band that reminds SLEEP or ANCESTORS with very particular arrangements. BITCHO from the Netherlands presents a long track (12 mn) with down tempo tunes a la GODFLESH and creeping sludge riffs with incatations. The record comes in a beautiful gatefold LP with a retro-futuristic cover made by Benjamin Moreau (HUATA).

Dirty transparent pink whatever vinyl available
On 'Revenant' HUMAN CULL push their already frantic crust-tinged blast-heavy grind of the last release into overdrive, featuring a huge production from Will Blackmon (Gadget, The Arson Project) and furious instrumental performances running in the style of 'FETO' era Napalm Death or 'Human 2.0' Nasum.
Songs run between monstrous fleet-fingered trem picking blast-fests to open riffing frantic d-beats but rarely drop below FAST. Lyrics are primarily about totalitarianism, following the thematic setting of an imagined medieval cyber punk future. Think of the cover of Anticapital and imagine living there, feelings of monochrome horror and anxiety blend with commentary on modern stupidity, terrorism and propaganda.
Performances are tightly controlled throughout 'Revenant' , layered chainsaw guitars and growling bass underpinned by clean and audible drums could almost be called clinical if it weren't for the organic songwriting and gritty textures of call and response twin throat-wrenching vocals and crumbling valve-based distortion.
The band display clear death metal and crust influences here, and this is certainly the closest to death metal their sound has come. Strong tones from the likes of Unleashed, the ever present Swedeath classics like Entombed and Obituary are found rubbing shoulders with the angular notes of Discordance Axis and Doom, flowing together in one gribbly monstrosity of a release.
This album is the most polished example of contemporary grind from these veterans of the UK scene.
HUMAN CULL are a three piece Crust, Grindcore power trio from the South West of the UK, they formed in the middle of 2011. HUMAN CULL are taking the classic Eighties Grindcore blueprint and incorporate elements of more contemporary Grind, Crust and Death Metal. Influences are taken from Eighties bands like NAPALM DEATH, DOOM, FEAR OF GOD, DISCHARGE and TERRORIZER as well as from more recent acts such as NASUM, GADGET, NUCLEAR DEATH TERROR and 324.
Hummingbird of Death have worked with Sound Polltion, 625, Relapse, and now Give Praise -- This collects a two song grindcore opus fueled with: Blasting raw hardcore blaze-ups, fastcore tinges with breakneck speed, blast beat fury to make even the happiest folks frown. Titanarum are here to spend their last recordings with this LP -- they play very solid hardcore punkrock, that has no need or call for any sugar-coating. Blasting, in-your-face, raw, angry and real hardcore punkrock.

Humus are from Italy and play great grind/PV influenced hardcore. It's what most people these days term "crust" but I'm really loathe to bandy about that term willy-nilly and to me at base the hardcore sound is the one that rises to the fore most prominently. In fact, despite all the continental Euro bands and scenes that a lot of these types of bands take major influence from, I can really hear a strong UKHC sound in this; in fact there's a Heresy cover (In Silence).
Great HC/grind at a time when there's a really great crop of bands and a fertile scene going on.
500 copies on black vinyl with gloss sleeves, a double-sided 12x12 insert and poster.
Hungry Like Rakovitz from Italy have been around since 2008, although the initial idea started back in 2004. Since then, they have been touring, recording & rehearsing. They shared the stages with bands like Godflesh & Eyehategod and with good reason too. These guys are intense and heavy as fuck, blending elements from death metal, grindcore, black metal, sludge and hardcore into one massive aural punishment.
from disorderly conduct blog: From spaztic, chaotic grind stuff to sorta sludged out noisy sections, this band is a difficult one to put a label on. Being described as anything from Grind, Noisecore, Chaotic Hardcore etc, I'll stick with what the band call themselves, "Grimecore". Fits this stuff perfectly imo. This is no introductory to these guys either with them previously releasing an EP in 2009 and split collaboration with "O" last year. Fans around the world have been anticipating some new material from this band and finally get what they've been craving. 19 tracks of a rampant nonstop barrage shoved into just over 25 minutes of playing time. If you have somehow missed out on Hungry Like Rakovitz, this is the perfect time to get to know them.
thornsmoat. a two-chapter antiutopia about a tough fate of a black fox.a hunter and a couple of dogs are chasing the prey to a certain death. the burrow is clouded with smoke. everyone has burnt alive. he is the last of the free; his death is coming close. the only thing left is to run. towards his fate - or away from it. chewing his paws off trying to escape. stuck in traps for days, animals die slowly and sorely, long before the hunter comes. you need 18 foxes to make a furcoat.
about an album in short:
the message isn’t straightforward. anti-utopias are always multi-faceted. our work is based on a story about a fox and human cruelty, but if you dig deeper, you’ll uncover hidden parallels about witchhunts; people of faith are always offended by the existence of those who don’t share their ideas of the bible. they build the cult of the righteous; the hierarchy of power leads to punishment of those who oppose the views of the majority. as a rule, people give themselves the right to decide who lives and who doesn’t. the world isn’t just black and white, even separating situations by shade is subjective; it is also true when people judge, harm or kill on the grounds of difference. primarily, the band leans not towards the cult of ideas, but the cult of sense and frugality towards everyone and everything. we don’t appreciate cruelty towards animals and everyone surrounding us. associations and symbols of all that can be found in our lyrics and art.
Hyle, from Bologna, are back with their first full length! Mixing stench of death, filthy crust and hardcore rampage they’ll blow your ears, both you a are a dirty punk or a relentless headbanger! Heavy riffs, pummeling drums, and raging screams are the weapons Hyle earned against the system!
