Newest slab of Pain Rock from these long time Philly power violence stalwarts, their first release with Triac/Multicult/Reeking Cross drummer Jake Cregger. Huge riffs and production on these two ripping tracks pulverize eardrums and wipe that smirk off your stupid face.
“Suffering PAIN unto the death, not that men might not suffer, but that their sufferings might be like RIFFS.”
"A massive injection of amps-to-eleven 70s rock attitude and flourishes of dark melodicism...sets Backslider apart from their peers."
-New Noise Magazine
"...don’t think you can get comfortable; this shit is still weird, and wild, and mean as hell, with a pronounced wallop of wall-eyed rock ‘n’ roll."
"...rapid-fire, nightmarish hardcore that borders on psychedelic."
-Blow The Scene
Backslider bring you their first vinyl release with this split 7". Nothing but non-stop fastcore from this Philadelphia 2 piece. somewhere between lack of interest and no comment, yet still crushing like neanderthal. 12 songs of "upset violence" on their side. Just when it breaks down, they know when to change the tempo, and keep it interesting. Recording and touring nonstop since their inception only a little over a year ago. Go see them in your city. Chainsaw to the face bring you the best in NJ powerviolence. Crushing breakdowns, blistering fast parts and the bleak outlook on life that is only matched by despise you. Chainsaw To The Face has been around since 2003, but sounding like they belong on reality #2 ala 90's powerviolence, sprinkle in some grind and a pinch of plutocracy, minus the high pitch vocals, and drugs. Dark and brooding hardcore. Zero positive outlook.
POWER-VIOLENCE. BACKSLIDER return with another 7" of blasting upset-violence. Comparisons have been made to not only to LACK OF INTEREST and NO COMMENT but also to the MELVINS and SLEEP. The 6 songs are slightly longer on this release.
From Norwich, Uk. Apperently this is ex-members from Deviated Instinct for those who remember them. Anyway, Bait is pretty metallic hardcore. In good way. Take some Rorschach and add some modern stuff like From Ashes Rise with a slightly metal edge. That's Bait. Pretty good.
This Las Vegas band comes with old school groovy Grindcore feat. CAPER (RIGHTEOUS PIGS, HENCHMEN) and TONY COSTANZA (MACHINE HEAD, CROWBAR , CRISIS, PAPSMEAR and TONY TRENT(51/50). Nice heavy grindy/Hardcore, thrash-style, with one of the best Hardcore vocals ever. 4 tracks of heavy, brutal in-your-face hardcore, with a hint of thrash. If you dig Righteous Pigs you'll love this too!
Bastardass bring you stop-and-start thrashy noisy hardcore. Growls and pounding guitars and drums with angry, shouting vocals. All Gone Dead bring you more of a minimal and raw noisecore, like Godstomper. Screeching and raw sleighing lines.
BASTARD GRAVE from Sweden and GRAVEYARD GHOUL from Germany are hereby giving proof that the underground is still vital and nothing is strong enough to smash the bond within this realm! This split presents one exclusive song from each band.
BASTARD GRAVE pursue the musical direction – a darker type of Death Metal – they came up with on their second full-length album. This means this song has the right balance between fast and bulldozing parts and the right amount of varied breaks on the right spot.
GRAVEYARD GHOUL contribute the first track with their new guitarist. Still playing their rancid style of Death Metal they are known for, „Dying Consciously“ has some fresh (if this is the correct word for this type of musick?) elements inherent, that adds a welcome variety to their sound.

new songs by those two european screamo outfits, comes in a silkscreened cover... Battle of Wolf 359 from London offering some blistering and heavy as fuck tracks unlike the One Eyed God Prophecy , Acrid or Uranus. with their unique female / male double vocals. June Paik combines dark, emoviolent parts with admirable long instrumental parts, peppered with lyrical vocals.
The long awaited return of Philly’s hypertech grind syndicate. Beasters vicious barrage of intricate labyrinthine riffing accelerates headlong into abrupt punishing mongo slam breaks. A tortuous tangled web of feral invective in a rupture of schismatic stop-start condemnation of the reviled. Balls versus brains.
REPUBLIC OF DREAMS: A new band, but well-known names. Th e newly formedtrio has 2 members of Louise Cyphre and 1 member of Resurrectionists /Apoplexy Twist Orchestra. Incredibly thrilling technical screamo/hardcore, that is driven by breaks and rises again and again. Very reminiscent of the legendary Jeromes Dream. Split partner are the most likeable guys from BEAU NAVIRE. Th e band has evolved and you can really can hear this here. Modern Screamo!
This is totally brutal and raw grindcore / thrashcore! Blast beats ringing in over metal tinged guitar breaks and furious growling lines that will have you bleeding out any of you’re usual punk and grind references! This is along the lines of bands like GRUESOME STUFF RELISH, MACHETAZO, with gruesome moans and growls in the back-drop of a pulverizing set of blasting grindcore! FEAR THE KEG!
(Somewhere between Hardcore, Screamo but also Post-rock and Crust this demo 7" is to class in. Extremely powerful, yet playful and not too fiddly. In between a synthesizer provides a kind of epic atmosphere. (Almost feels like a surrounding spaceship). The four guys from Berlin, Hamburg and Oldenburg manage the balancing act between hard and fast parts and moodful melodies. to find a specific classification is difficult - a too wide-ranging musical spectrum had obviously influence on the five songs. If you cant imagine this, you should get this record and make your own impression)
new blasts of Celtic/Hungarian 80's thrash from Black Sister, this time chucked in a cement mixer with some Iron Maiden b-sides and on the flip your brain gets crushed by 4 tracks of 1980's earache worship from the original Indonesian bulldozer Injakmati. new blasts of Celtic/Hungarian 80's thrash from Black Sister, this time chucked in a cement mixer with some Iron Maiden b-sides and on the flip your brain gets crushed by 4 tracks of 1980's earache worship from the original Indonesian bulldozer Injakmati. 250 copies only
At war with false noise: Has been a long time coming but it's finally out! Black Sun take the first side with a surprisingly short, fast and loud number. Still
as heavy as previous At War LP "Paralyser" but much more in the short, fast and loud vein. This one's been a set-closer for a while now and is a total rager, will hopefully be a nice surprise to
a lot of you! This is the first release by Manchester-based sludgers They Are Cowards and it's a beast. Totally focussed, grim northern waste-inspired misery, building from a massive Celtic
Frost-esque riff. A totally brilliant pairing of northern negativity!
300 copies on heavyweight black vinyl. Foldover covers in PVC sleeves.
This is split #10 of the Hell Comes Home Volume 1 Series.
Black Sun are from Glasgow and they've been perfecting their own sludge/metal sound for years. No compromise! Throat are from Finland and have already released countless quality releases in a relatively short time. Sludge/noise rock played with guts!
On this nice platter 2 friendly bands team up. The 7min. long track, by Austrian's post-hardcore trio I NOT DANCE is a small foretaste of the forthcoming full-length. Sounding intense and heavy as always they tried to expand their musical scope while still staying true to their original roots. Breaking with their own troubled past year I NOT DANCE, pays tribute to a close friend and processes his farewell. In any case, how the song came about shows that passion and cohesion always come first and their mates from BLCKWVS would probably agree. German instrumental BLCKWVS developed their own style of instrumental music over the last couple years. From post-rock influenced delay driven guitar work to heavy, dirge and nihilistic sludge and doom infected bulldozer-rock. The track on this split (from the same recording session as their upcoming "0150" full-length) is really dark and heavy, somewhat reminiscent of really droney and heavy CULT OF LUNA and ISIS. Instead of altering those heavy parts with quiet parts like the aforementioned bands, BLCKWVS decides to strictly play those dark and heavy riffs throughout the song. This really differs from the sound of lots of bands. Vinyl comes with beautiful fold-out cover-packaging and includes a digital download card.

R.:are 2 ex-KENT BROCKMAN dudes that play totally old-school-powerviolence-worshipping stuff in a very punky and raw way!
this one comes with killer artwork and is limited to 500 copies
"Boak just use photo of Alien Ant Farm members and put them in this "art". Looks very stupid but cool, I'm sure the guys from AAF wouldn't understand that joke. Anyway, these 2 sick guys from Aberdeen (Scotland) managed to shove a huge amount of energy, anger, riffs, groove and screams into this 4 minute release. The boak sound is the perfect mix with European grind bands like napalm death and the new hardcore / powerviolence from new continent like Six Brew Bantha. Limited 300 Copies (Grindpromotion Records #40)"
This is the second offering from Buried At Birth and their follow-up to the Full Length CD. More blasting and pulverizing, angry, clench-fisted female fronted grindcore / powerviolence from these California locals.
Split #6 is the punk affair of the lot. Burning Love churn out a brilliant version of a track of their new album. The intro is just class, and the rest follows. On the flipside Fight Amp found the time between two tours to record another one of their classic AmRep meets hardcore tune. Killer!
Haven't listened to Butcher ABC in a while...? Fucking insane, blistering guitars, fucking tight drumming , never afraid to abuse double bass... Add to that legendary Clotted Symmetric Sexual Organ vocalist Naru's sick and twisted, splattered, guttural vocals and you will get an infernal live eruption in the vein of old Pungent Stench, classic Bolt Thrower and Carnage material. These 4 tracks are recorded at the "Road To Hell vol.5 Festival" in june 2013. The EP comes in nice 7" Gatefold sleeve and is limited to 500 copies only
