Social Crisis (including members of Life Scars, All Day Hell, Czas Zlamac Prawo and Victim of Truth) plays crustcore in the vein of Disrupt, State of Fear and Extreme Noise Terror. Days of desolation from Belgium with famous artist Jasper plays grind/crust. Including a Nasum cover song!
Twelfth and final instalment in the 12-part split 7" series by the Irish label, Hell Comes Home. As soon as Dead Elephant enter into action with heir "Carne De Perro", it is clear that their split fellows, Rabbits, will have to work hard! The Italian post-hardcore trio play according to their own personal rhythm making them difficult to be confined into rigid genre classification schemes. Everything seems to collide and mix up into a sound maelstrom devouring and splintering languages and styles with impressive energy and ease at the same time. So it comes almost as natural to eventually hear the chaotic storm sharply giving way to a long and alienating, atmospheric tail. Rabbits have the honour and burden of closing the split as well as the entire collection. This US noise-punk-thrash metal trio from Portland, Oregon is the ideal mate for what came before. With their strained screams and clanging sounds in "War, Oh My", these guys are able to transmute the starting sound into an alien beast out of control. The sounds, and your breath, will become more and more gasping, rhythms, and your heart, will first speed up and then slow down. All will sum up into a sonic delirium eventually accompanying the listener towards the end, into silence. Black vinyl in full colour sleeve with insert. A very limited amount available separately from the Hell Comes Home "Volume 1" 12x7" box set.
HARDCORE/METAL. If there are still inviolated, hidden paths between raw hardcore and metal in its most damaged moments, GOLDUST is the privileged band to explore them. Raging like an elemental force, their 2 songs on this split leave the listener shattered and helpless, yet deeply moved by the blank honesty of the lyrical content. Think of bands like GEHENNA, CURSED or EYEHATEGOD. GOLDUST share this split with DEATHRITE - without a doubt one of the most promising bands today. They continue to push the envelope of extreme metal, infusing influences of hardcore, punk and d-beat. Their ripping hybrid in the vein of TRAP THEM or NAILS perfectly embodies the anger and rage of a generation that was born into a fucked up world like this.

From No Clean Singing:
Each band contributes one song. The Dephosphorus track, “Stargazing and Violence”, is the sound of a massive tank rolling through a skull-filled pit of sludge. The riffs are deep and fuzzed out, a delicious mix of grinding blasts and heavy, head-snapping hammer blows. There are some unexpected clean vocals in the song to accompany the bloody shrieking. Very nice song.
The Great Falls song is called “Everything But Lightning”. It’s a surprising conflagration of really massive bass chords, crazed guitar antics, and hardcore screaming. It’s unsettling, unpredictable, and very damned cool.
the second assault after their selfproduced 7" by these german kids. very tight agressive and emotinal newschool hc. a great combination of harsh parts combined with melody and emotion. intensity is the keyword for this band. this record is a fine example of what's come to be known as the famous (he he..) PER KORO style.
Paskuda open the split with six tracks (5+intro) of energetic grind/hardcore with some downtempo parts. It reminded me Brasilian veterans Rot, and I think that
such oldschool bands influence Slovak dudes in their activity as a rule. I really liked raw, solid sound of Paskuda music.
Depresy Mouse also come with six tracks of fast, explosive mix of grindcore, darkened crust and some thrashcore touches. It's like Abortion meets Agathocles, something in this way. I think fans of both mentioned bands will like Depresy Mouse very much.
Limited to 300 hand numbered copies. Each copy also comes with a free digital download code for the entire 7" for your Ipod. Desolatevoid unabatedly and unashamedly continue their regression towards Dantesque depths regularly reserved for serial killers and career politicians, tumbling on down whiskey lubricated slopes into unfathomable, misanthropic mires. 10 years of toil and trouble inevitably leads to some Northern Aggression, the brand new release from Eau Claire, Wisconsin’s most damaged psyches. No celebratory full length of re-recorded “past glories,” no grandiose, self-indulgent “tour,” just three exclusive songs in nine minutes pressed to 7” of wax: bone gnashing thrash, a rollicking punk underbelly, and enough “fist in the air” grooves to turn the heavens into your punching bag. Their most potent strike yet includes B-side, and perennial live favorite, “Deaf in that Ear.”
HARDCORE. The 1st split in the series is shared by DISCONNECTED from Ohio and WASTELAND from Wellington/New Zealand. Will of AS GOOD AS DEAD started the band with the intention to play raw, dirty and aggressive hardcore which was supposed to be influenced from black-metal. The former PREMONITIONS OF WAR guitarist joined DISCONNECTED and is handling the vocals. The 4 tracks deserve hardcore that sound like hardcore is supposed to sound. WASTELAND represents the new breed of N.Z. hardcore by delivering 5 tracks of old-schoolish hardcore. The split comes sealed with an obistrip, inserts and stickers! Limited edition of 500 copies.
Nyköping-based crustCore 4-piece with classic 6-song debut which got released on the German Rödel label in 1998. DISPENSE went on releasing the great 'In The Cold Night' album; the guitarist and the bassist started VICTIMS while drummer Kalle went on with SKITSYSTEM.
Raging mixture of death metal and brutal crust core straight into your ears! Those always hungry for noise devastation will finally find relief from rotting daily life. USA vs. POLAND – so far away but so close. Texas vs. Lublin – opposite points on the globe now sharing 7 inches of bloody wax.
Those punks well fucking know what you deserve if you enjoy BOLT THROWER, HELLSHOCK, STORMCROW, NIHILIST, GRAVE, MALEVOLENT CREATION - try it and you will feel on your own neck that these're not just empty words!
Here we have the split between 2 greek bands! Doomed again, featuring members from Head Cleaner and Slaktgrav, present 4 new songs with social / political lyrics and Paroxysmos perform 3 new songs after their first sold out Ep!! D-beat - Harcore /Punk at its best!!
Drainland from Ireland once again return with their sludge crust Bovine noise hardcore thing. Two songs in their Drainland signature. Cellgraft from Florida on the other side with a mixture between Discordance Axis and a uhm vacuumcleaner. Over the top noisy grindcore. You should like this.
Drainland does two new songs, one short fast rager, one dirgey longer song. Crows do three songs of metallic hc. Both bands are from Dublin, Ireland.
300 copies made, imported from the UK. This is the last Drainland recording with Jamie Grimes on guitar. Be on the lookout for his new project, Coalinga.
Hey it’s Drainland so obviously we’re stepping in. They’ve got it covered with one song this time. Heavy with slower and fast parts. Not unlike their previous material but this is intense like never before. As if Kylesa would release a track on a Bovine compilation. Awesome. On the flipside is Enabler from Milwaukee, Usa. Hadn’t heard about them before but these fellows have some experience in shitloads of bands like Today is The Day, Racetraitor and Trap Them. So yeah it’s heavy. Some hints of a heavier Converge with d-beat and powerviolence bits thrown into it. Pretty damn good mixture if you ask me. They’ve got a full length coming out on Southern Lord soon. This is a split release with Halo Of Flies.

This is split #9 of the Hell Comes Home Volume 1 Series.
Israeli doomsters Dukatalon treat us with a Buzzov*en cover ("Mainline") and local (Galway/Ireland) heavy riffers Rites deliver the goods! All in all, a crushing split.
