BLACK VINYL LIMITED TO 400 COPIES
This is the split 7" from Arizona's LAGO and Poland's CALM HATCHERY featuring one new song from each band. This split release is released in cooperation between SELFMADEGOD RECORDS from Poland
and BATTLEGROUND RECORDS from USA.
LAGO delivers a ferocious brew of classic but modernized death metal, surrounded in a blackened fog, wholly bearing an oppressive atmosphere.
CALM HATCHERY overthrows the B-side of this split with a vital slab of decimation, “Distant Pulsation.” Continuing to revitalize their brutality with each release, the band unloads a shredding, brutal death metal wrought with bursts of technicality and grindcore-influenced tactics.
This is a must have for fans of classic and brutal death metal in the vein of IMMOLATION, BEHEMOTH, MORBID ANGEL, SUFFOCATION.
To celebrate their friendship and to support their common european tour in 2010 Capsule and Furnace team up to share this split 7“. First of are Capsule from Florida which should be known since their amazing album entitled „blue“ on robotic empire records. Modern Hardcore / Sludge. Split side with Bostons Furnace. Heavy angry hardcore.
Anyone familiar with UK grindcore will already know The Atrocity Exhibit (from previous releases on Grindcore Karaoke, as well as shows all over the place) and what to expect from them... Relentless fucking grind.
On the other side is Catheter, who you should know from splits with the likes of Birdflesh, Massgrave etc.. and their ridiculous LP from last year. Massive, sludge-y grind!
One new track and one cover from each band. If you have any interest in fast music, you probably need this!
Debut vinyl for release for this vile outfit. Cease To Exist take the violent aural barrage of bands like Gehenna or Sangraal and add a filthy Black Metal Influence that is fierce and unrelenting in its assault. A band that will treat you with the contempt you undoubtedly deserve.
As 2017—aka the Year of the Cloud Rat—marches on and the horrors all around us continue to intensify, aggressive, cathartic Music remains one of the few things we can count on to provide an escape. The US-Midwestern grind sweethearts in Cloud Rat are well aware of the necessity of creation during the darkest of days, and have lined up a shit-hot bevy of releases for 2017. Just out: a new split with Dutch/German powerviolence punks Crevasse.
I've really been enjoying the way the band has been toying with unexpected sounds and whole new genres on their recent releases, from the synth goth vibe of Amber Flush to the appearance of their surprisingly melodic, riot grrrl-tinged, clean sung cover of Electric Deads' number "Fish in a Pool" on this new split with Crevasse. Cloud Rat has never stuck to a singular sound, but it's still a delight to see them stretch their legs a bit and kick down
a few new walls.
Crevasse, on the other hand, are sworn to a particularly pummeling blend of hardcore, powerviolence, d-beat, and doom that treads heavily, and only takes two or three minutes to pack a serous wallop. The Dutch/German transnational quartet channel their fury into bite-sized chunks of metallic, filthy shrapnel that fit perfectly alongside Cloud Rat's grinding rat-a-tats resulting in wonderfully complementary and wholly uncompromising pairing.
CLOUD RAT has teamed up with DRUGS OF FAITH for a split 7” EP via Selfmadegod Records.
CLOUD RAT deploys three new grindcore songs on the A-side, their tracks were recorded at Lakebottom Recording House in Toledo, Ohio, with J.C. Griffin. On the B-side, DRUGS OF FAITH supplies two new grind'n'roll tracks captured at Developing Nations in Baltimore, Maryland with Kevin Bernsten.
Michigan’s Cloud Rat comes prepared with a heavy hammer yet again. These 2 tracks show all the grinding HC fury and venomous pained vocals you know and love, yet both display a dark moody side with the odd driving or black metallish riff to break up the blasts and blown out filth. This is the first release for Autarkeia from Ft. Myers FL. Made up of folks from Jiyuna and Merkit, both sides shine through. Dark, moody emo that goes from calm to gigantic blown out heaviness is fronted with female vocals that range from screamed intensity to haunting beauty. This track focuses on driving heaviness and finishes with a long outro reminiscent of a darker Christie Front Drive.

London grinders CLUNGE PLUNGER return with another fat slab of catchy metallic sludgegrind on 'SHITCANNED'. This will be the bands first physical release (they have 2 digital releases preceeding this), but being that they formed in 2012 and having not been inactive in the London crust and grind scene means this is a consummate display of beer drenched blasting, vocals that range from sewer level gutterals to throat wrenching screams, clanking tank-tread bass and growling, gain drenched guitar.
The sludge influence makes itself felt in the slower, almost rock n' roll sections and somewhat in the recording, though this is a very crusty and raw listening experience there is no mismanaging of studio time, with a great level of clarity in the performances. Everything is audible and moves easily and naturally between Eyehategod style riffing, ENT d-beats and outright pulverising contemporary grind in the vein of Rotten Sound or Pig Destroyer.
A crusty, rocking partygrind release well worth it's 12minute runtime!
This is just killer combination of both incredible bands and there's no way that you'll be left dissapointed after listening this 9 loud assaults. This is ultra-fast ultra-raging straight-edge hardcore coming from Washington DC and Massachusets. Mindblowing and devastating. This is second release of COKE BUST on Refuse after incredible "Degradation" 7". This way the band broke their their policy of working out with different label with every release and so we're stoked and proud!. Super tight, unstoppable machine influenced by Heresy, Ripcord, early DRI and Infest. VACCINE is known from their three eps and this plain sonic, raw, noisy uncompromising attack. Members were in the bands like ORCHID, AMPERE, THINK I CARE, RELICS or involved in other things since over decade.
CONTROLLED EXISTENCE is from Prague, Czech Republic with 5 new crusty power violence songs, Songs all stick to the same style, mid range vocals, lots of speed amongst groove laden riffs. The flipside contains 3 new stench core attacks from hellgiums DAYS OF DESOLATION. Awesone material similar to Destroyed In Seconds and Wolfbrigade.
Crows from Dublin, Ireland inject some much needed freshness and vitality into the metallic hardcore genre. Absolutely crushing riffs, pointed and pertinent lyrics and tastefully powerful
songwriting make their three contributions to this split essential. Smart, intelligent hardcore.
Beast As God from Nottingham in the UK are something of a supergroup, combining their experience with a healthy obsession with the nineties to create a total steamroller of a track. Think Dystopia, Ire, Disembodied, Catharsis and the like and you might be in the right ballpark.
The debut album which should be this release was cancelled by the band after recording. We thought that at least some of the songs deserve to be released, so here it is..... the debut 7" of this band from Karlsruhe/Straßbourg. I don't want to do the name-dropping thing now, you know, ex-and-current-this-and-that... this is some fast hardcore, with lots of grind parts and somehow it reminds me of a more grinding HIS HERO IS GONE (just to give you an idea of what you could expect). So here's some really fast and heavy stuff!
This is the first split release as follow the nice demotape by Cyborg from Chicago. These guys also play in WEEKEND NACHOS, but here they stick to the Powerviolence sound like the earlier W.N. releases, hardcore punk smashers between crude 90s fastcore and maniac grindcore. INFEST, SPAZZ and CROSSED OUT. THE AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN can be called the UK's brutal answer to, and they're no doubt as tight as, CYBORG. Their "Pissed Again" 7" had awesome reviews comparing them to a whole slew of grind/pv bands (DESPISE YOU, HELLNATION, INSECT WARFARE, SPAZZ), all adequate comparisons but they are still their own band. A must!
