After touring throughout the world, Dutch hardcore punk giants Vitamin X return with their first recorded output in 3 years. Finally capturing the manic aggression of their notorious live shows while truely showcasing their songwriting skills and
musicianship. VX take their furious hardcore sound even further into the realms of 70s rock riffage and wild guitar solos, never letting up on the high energy thrash punk. Recorded and Engineered at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Neurosis) it has an enormous sound. The album features lead vocals by Negative Approachs John Brannon on 2 songs and amazing artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Pig Destroyer). This is a serious hardcore masterpiece.
If you like it, buy it.
This record is as good as everything Vitamin X has done before. If you buy the vinyl you won't be dissapointed. Great stuff!!!

i haven't find any info about them, except what i can read in their myspace, but after have listened once, i have to put in the blog. Great fast 80's hardcore!!!. While i listened to it i've think in Attitude Adjustment and Toe To Toe. Not that they sound like that bands, but for whatever reason it's what come to my mind (maybe the voice?)
i'm really bad at triying to review music, but if you enjoy most of the music of this blog, you'll enjoy this too.

"This record is loud, fast and very pissed- if early D.R.I, Negative FX and stuff of that ilk IS your thing, you can't miss this record! It's just harsh and fast and unrelenting, what else can be said? Guitar player of Life Trap is in this band."
MEMPHIS TENNESEE'S WITH THEIR FIRST "OFFICIAL" 7",SINCE THEIR LONG GONE DEMO SINGLE.
A BALLS OUT 6 SONG KILLER IS THE RESULT
HECTIC, MANIACAL FAST PACED HC,THAT DEF HAS HINTS OF FASTCORE BANDS OF YESTERYEAR.
SHIT,MAYBE SOMETHING LIKE THE BASTARD SON OF NEOS/NYC MAYHEM/DEEP WOUND,WITHOUT TRYING TO COPY ANY OF THOSE OR TO KEEP THAT OLD PRODUCTION SOUND,SINGER CHRIS HOLDS HIS OWN AS HE RAPIDLY SPITS OUT HIS COMMENTS OVER THE HIGH PACED RHYTHM SECTION.
RESULT IS AN ALL OUT BRUTAL EP,WITH A VERY BLEAK OUTLOOK,YET FUCKIN GREATLY ENJOYABLE (Even Worse Records)
EXCELLENT record! Debut EP from Memphis' TN own Vile Nation. Very mean and ugly fast thrash hardcore with a heavy dose of punk. One can't listen to this and not hear the 1st 7'' era of D.R.I and Negative FX and bands of that same time frame and caliber being channeled here. Chris just spews the words out mean and fast and the band keeps up. The guitar player from Life Trap also plays in this band, but honestly DON'T buy it for that reason, this band kicks a ton of ass without that bit of know how. Words can't describe how utterly amazing this record is, its just great great great! (Cowabunga Records)
In my opinion, one of the best records in recent times. Great, great, great!!!

Civil Terror has only one motto and that is: 'Put your pedal to the metal', resulting in fast, raging terror not unlike Infest, SSD or Judas Priest. Since their demo sold out ages ago and the band got sick of dubbing tapes, it was time to release all 10 songs on vinyl. The songs have been mostly re-recorded, mixed and mastered so on the whole it should sound even better than the incredible demo.
NOTE: Tracks 1,2 and 6 contain two songs each since they were impossible to split.
I'm sorry for not post it before the Short Fast Loud Fest, but it wasn't possible. In the meantime, i've read the comment of some member of the band (Jasper)in the comments of the Fest, and i want to thank it for the comment and for give permission to post their stuff.

Citizens Patrol- Dead Children
Another record by these guys in a relatively short time to coincide with their recent US tour. I liked their first 7", and naturally this sounds pretty similar, so I'm into it. Some of the lyrics are a little weird ("Hamburger Man"?), but English isn't their native language, so maybe cut em a little slack.(http://bleedingedges.net)
Sorry for not add more reviews and/or comments but i'm not in the mood to look for it, but i want to publish it. Probably most of the people looking here already know how good Citizens Patrol are

The Shining plays loud and fast hardcore. They like BGK and The Accused and stuff like that, and hope you do too. This is a co-release with Underground Punk Support, Pick Up Records and Team Welfare Records.
THE SHINING-The Word Is Fiction (Pick Up/multi-label, 7” EP)
The second off-the-rails ripper for The Shining. This disc is packaged in an elaborate gatefold sleeve and the music is just as striking. Hell, if it came in a plain white sleeve, I’d feel the same way. Fast, ferocious hardcore punk, a whiff of crossover and hitting all the right buttons. The tinny-to-loud transition to start “Koopziek” is followed by a high-powered rampage that doesn’t let up. I could use even more hyperbole, like saying that smoke is coming from the needle but I think you get the idea. (Suburban Voice/Amp magazine; Al Quint)
This is the second shiny black and white gatefold sleeve I've reviewed this month...is this the new thing? Did i not get the memo? Rip roaring euro core with a slight (very slight) metallic edge. Like COC or the Accused, they have that searing guitar sound and that speed metal riffage coupled with hardcore vocals. Nice to see some folks with a different sound that really works; Good shit (TB)(Maximum Rock'n'Roll)
The Word is Fiction: 7" EP
Warp-speed thrash from the Netherlands here. There's just a tinge of metal in the guitars, but it fits in quite nicely with the overall sound. –Jimmy Alvarado (Pick-Up)(Razorcake Fanzine)

Shredder - Damnit Riggs
posted by: Nico on 25 October 2006
I thought the first release was pretty good, but this release blows me out of the water. Still the same mix of Negative Approach, Voorhees and Infest but way better and harder than on their previous release. This mini cd contains nine shredding songs, one that is a bit slower and has a dragging taste to it. The lyrics are angry and deal with subjects such as fighting and being pissed at everyone, also a great song about Monster Trucks. The artwork is good and the production is hard hitting and crushing. After only a few minutes the record is done, luckily I have a repeat button, because this is the music to listen to while driving on the highway. After a great LP by Sunpower earlier this year, another Belgium bands delivers an old school record Belgium can be proud of. I could write more about this release, but the best thing to do is check out for yourself!
The cd version is released by Eye Spy records and High Five and Holy Shit records released the 7” version. (http://www.asice.net/reviews/2194/)

MilkMan is our Tilburg based 80’s hardcore band from the Netherlands. Once there was a hardcore band called S.R.V. There also was a hardcore band called Kutnaam 1001. It was in the mid-80's era that we and lots of other hardcore bands played in local venues like the BatCave. Ten years later (1994) Kutnaam 1001-vocalist Meeri joined forces with the three S.R.V.-members. From that moment on we existed as MilkMan. The reason for getting together was simple. People didn’t know the real hardcore-music anymore. A lot of young people thought hardcore was all about jumping around on stage. They didn’t know anymore they had to dive off and hit the concrete. So we decided to start a band and show what we thought real hardcore is all about: have fun, drink a beer (before straight edge was invented) and above all be who you are. We started rehearsing and worked on our own material. This resulted in the demo "It's Not a Choice" (1995) and our first cd "Combover World" (1998). Loud, fast and tight was going to be our motto. We played our first gigs and appeared on a couple of compilations. In 2000 Kangaroo Records from Amsterdam started to show interest in the band. Having a reputation for releasing loud and fast hardcore we felt it would be the perfect label for us. In 2001 Kangaroo released our second cd “Fresh Fruit For Rotten Aliens”. The music was the most brutal music we’ve ever made. The reactions to the cd were very good and the MilkMan name started to spread further and further, resulting in more compilations (a.o. the official DRI tribute cd) and a split single with Dutch band Plankton. Live the band is becoming tighter and tighter from playing a lot of shows. Live MilkMan means no nonsense, let the music do the talking, full speed ahead shows. So far we played with bands like D.R.I., UK Subs, Cause for Alarm, Poison Idea, Pro-Pain, M.D.C. and the Anti Nowhere League. In January of 2003 we took off for our first European tour. Together with American label mates Out Cold we played 10 shows in countries like Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovak Republic and Czech Republic. The tour once again making us tighter and even more dedicated to spread our music over the world of fast hardcore. Early 2003 we released our third album, “Is this Punk enough for you?”, again on the Kangaroo label. Harder, faster, louder, better than ever before! 21 bursting songs in 24 minutes. For the first time the album has been released not only on cd, but also on vinyl. The coming period we'll be working on new songs which we hope to record sometime soon and do a lot more shows.

Concrete Facelift bring fast traditional skate-core to the masses. CFL play it
like it should be, fast simple, creative and fucking passionate without the
metal wanking and showboating that dominates the skate-core landscape today.
Fast and frantic K-Town hardcore punk. Reminds me of early Mid-Western US hc mixed with the more thrashy European mid 80's feel
8 Tracks of old school Mid west HC mixed with thrashy euro hardcore from Copenhagen, Denmark - Home to so many good bands. If you're a fan of the 1st Violent Minds ep, this is right up your alley. Pissed off hardcore for pissed off punks. Awesome cover art too.
New on Adult Crash records, successor label to Kick N Punch, this is K town hardcore as you would expect it. Fast and furious in the early Dischord style. For those of you who feel the copenhagen bands got a little too melodic, here is a return to form that will reinvigorate your enthusiasm for this cities raging hardcore scene.
MRR #303, August 2008:
Fuck yes! RIPPING HEADACHE from Copenhagen, Denmark tears you a new asshole on his current EP! The men administer brutal guitar pain and crush you with a vicious vocal attack. Ferocious bass playing and monster drumming pound you into the ground like a tent stake! RIPPING HEADACHE write s good lyrics. Read some of the words to "Way too far": "All that bullshit you put inside our heads / Sometime, somewhere, you knew we had to break....once again, too blind to see / You helped build your worst enemy / War and terror makes me want to laugh / Hope this generation is going to be the last." Yes sir! That's disheartening shit! This is a great record, punks! Get your copy now! (BR)
Record Shop Base:
From the Denmark's passionate place, Copenhagen's "K-Town", the birth place of the Gorilla Angreb, Hjertestop, Death Token of those hot bands, here comes the "Ripping Headache' s new comming single of 2008!!! With the Crasy Rocking Fast Hard core punk with the hint of US Midwest HC-80x Euro Trash Hc mix, it is just so cool!! Eight track!! Released from the new Copenhagen born label "Adult Crash Records"!! The first 2008 EP from this band from Denmark with the US's raw HC thrash taste!! Fast HC punkrock with the Rough and Powerful, speedy, Eye catching but yet unrefined.

Song of the Week: Reprobates: Failure
Posted on July 16th, 2008 in none by daniel ||
I first heard of Toronto’s Reprobates when an unsolicited demo tape arrived in the Sorry State Records mailbox. While most demos tend to get tossed to the side and listened to weeks later, something about this tape stuck out… the layout didn’t look slapped-together, and every indication pointed to the fact that this group had their shit together. I popped the tape in the deck and wow… the band blew me away with one of the toughest, meanest sounds I’d heard in ages. While more and more hardcore bands try and cop the melodic west coast aesthetic, Reprobates were amping up the influences from “tough” US hardcore like Negative Approach and SOA and adding in a little of the European flavor of bands like BGK. I was smitten and sent them an email immediately asking to put out their debut 7″. Later that day I got a reply from their guitarist, Gabby, saying that several other labels had contacted them and they’d already committed to doing records with those labels, but I could put out their 3rd or 4th 7″ if they wanted. I guess that all those other labels had pretty much my exact same experience when they opened that package.
Fast forward a few months to No Way Fest 2, where Reprobates played and knocked my socks off. For me, they were probably the band of the fest… while more established bands like Wasted Time and Government Warning may have gotten better reactions, I wasn’t blindsided by those sets the way that I was by Reprobates. Their feedback-drenched, two-guitar sound was so much thicker and more twisted than any other band (save perhaps Wasted Time and Double Negative) that they really stuck out from the crowd.
Reprobates also have an undeniable knack for building and releasing tension, a knack that is on near-perfect display on “Failure,” the opening track from their first 7″ on No Way Records. The absolutely crushing mid-paced riff that starts the track is straight out of the SS Decontrol songbook, but the loud feedback track is what truly sets this apart… it’s like the second guitarist is feeling it so hard that he can’t even bring himself to strum that simple riff. When the fast part comes in there’s no stab at melody or even control… it’s just relentless, Deep Wound-style thrashing, and just when you feel like you’re regaining your equilibrium the song shifts back into that slow, demented riff. Wow.
This is a song of the week post, not an EP of the week post, but I will say that you absolutely need this record. The title track, “Stress,” is just as good as “Failure” and the rest of the EP is no slouch either. Throw in killer artwork and packaging and you have one of the essential hardcore records of 2008.
Life Trap return for another swift kick to the head with 8 songs of punishing HC/PUNK not unlike their 1st ep and demo. No song over a minute and a half, so you know it will feed your non- attentive brain and hardcore addiction. A great 2nd ep from this great band
Can you spell HARDCORE ?
Then you have just given the best description to this 7 ep. Six songs on this
piece of vinyl that pass by like a whirlwind. Hardcore played like it should be:
pissed off and raw. Angry lyrics that fit the music very well. Hailing from Half
Moon Bay California, these youngsters deliver Hardcore like it was in the 80 s: Metal free, no bullshit attitude and very much in your face. This ep takes off
where their first ep finished
Hell Yeah ! About time this mother sees the light of day from bay area's NxJ. The 6 remainder songs from the demo 7"session finally eternalised on vinyl. Whats there to expect? , 6 more classic pummeling anger overboiled hc anthems. Future classics as "smalltown drama", mindless violence", and "paranoid" to name a few, are assured to create sheer mayhem wherever played!! (Even Worse Records)
The 2nd half of the NJ demo from 2006 put to wax, it was 1 half on the ST 7" last year and this is the 2nd half of course. Pretty much what you'd expect just HARDCORE nothing techinical or way out there, just straight forward and ultra pissed. The dudes take cues from early Boston hardcore, later 80's hardcore from the East Coast and Japan and their own influeces and tastes. Simply put one of the best in hardcore, enough said. Was the word hardcore used enough or what? Of course this is most of the members of Second Opinion and they're coming out with more material so keep your ears open to that. (Cowabunga Records)
At first listen, Nightstick Justice has a sound combining inventive, change-of-pace hardcore that recalls Minor Threat (second ep), and mixes it up with a Jerry's Kids-type intensity. They hail from Half Moon Bay, CA, but the six tracks here are definitely world class, with production that's thick and tinged with feedback; the lyrics cover topics of personal protest (violence against women in shows, with the added pressure of cops), and always seem genuine. Strongly recommended. (SS) (Maximum Rocknroll)

Hard hitting, fast, thrashing hardcore. The lyrics range from the rage of working class people to disgust of the death portrayed by the media every day. From Baltimore MA.
On Yellow Dog Records is "Panic in the Face of Time", from Baltimore, MD's A Warm Gun, who I had never heard of before. They blaze through 13 tracks of short, fast, furious hardcore/punk in less than 20 minutes - with a grinding metallic edge that amps up the heaviness and gives the album a different sort of vibe as a whole. Only one track passes the two-minute mark, but they're definitely building upon an array of influences, from old school NYHC sounding power chords to straightforward fast blasting rhythms or the occasional tinge of sinister dissonance. The lead vocals also have a unique sound to 'em, with an aggressive sort of snarl that doesn't take things over the top - granted there are also some fierce high-end sneers (and sparse low growls) that, when present, definitely lean more towards a grindcore sort of aesthetic. I don't really care for the cover art at all (the material deserves something a bit more… I don't know… fitting, I suppose), but the recording is nice and crisp and the writing/performances are right on the mark. I have no idea if this is the band's first "full-length" or what, but I'll be curious to see where they end up. Not bad! (www.aversionline.com)
Baltimores thrashers blow you away!! fucking fast and brutal old school hc trax, with some harsh metal influence (www.yellowdog.de)
Ever since the first bands who started to play rougher and harder music leading up to metal and punk there has been a continuously growing smorgasbord of influences for bands to pick up on, and A Warm Gun are a hungry bunch grabbing a little of pretty much everything. The core here is short, fast, and loud hardcore but with some metal guitars, some metal vocals, some crusty as well as thrashy riffs, ditto drumming with some blast beats here and there… It took a while for me to get into this and a bit longer before I could come to terms with the vocals, but now that I have I realize that this stuff isn't bad at all.
The opening tracks start out quite heavy and then rapidly double the speed and anger just to seconds later go into some groovy breakdowns. This is the deal all throughout - interchanging and varied I mean, not repeating the first track. Personally I think A Warm Gun are great when they lower the tempo and deliver their frustration with a little rhythm. The faster parts are raging no doubt, but don't offer the same uniqueness one could hope for. But again, the variation and combination of different styles make this record quite unique as a whole and that's what counts. They're not really treading new ground and won't name a genre, but if you want some grind-thrash-crust-metal-fast-core that's being done good this is the band to turn to. (attackfanzine.net)
Este disco me lo ha pedido un "anonimo mexicano" (espero que lo veas) en algun comentario, y aunque me ha costado conseguirlo, aqui esta. No los conocia, pero despues de leer el comentario escuche alguno de sus temas en su myspace, y pense que si veia el disco en algun concierto me lo pillaria. Estuve hace 2 semanas en Barcelona y me lo pille en el concierto de Subterranean Kids. Para los que os gusta la mayoria de lo que posteo, tambien os gustara esto. Ah!, muchas gracias a Dani por pasarme el vinilo a cd y fotografiar la portada y contraportada, que estan incluidas en el rar.
This record was requested by an "anonimo mexicano" in some comment, and although it have take some time to get it, finally it's here. I didn't know'em, but after read the comment, i listened their myspace songs, and thought that if i saw the record in some gig i'll buy it. I was 2 weeks ago in Barcelona seeing Subterranean Kids, and got it from some guy with lots of good records. If you like most of the stuff i post, you'll like this one too. And many thanks to Dani for record the vinyl to cd and make photos of the front and back cover that i 've enclose in the rar.

After some years of activity and two 7"s released on US labels like 625 and Know Records, this band from Belgrade, Serbia managed to release their full length album. This is no bullshit, high-energy, great sounding hardcore, taking the best elements of fast US 80's hardcore with good examples of european hardcore without any re-hash and not being stucked in the past. This how real hardcore should sound in 2006, with very good sound, fast tempos but also good amount of diversities in their songs, to keep them kicking through all the 14 songs on the recordings. Yet, this band have definitely lots of attitudes and important things to say. LP released as a cooperation with Thrashbastard Records from Germany. 100 copies out of the first press are released on clear vinyl. (http://www.moonleerecords.com)
Finally, three years after the last release, LETS GROW’s first album is out. The album has 13 songs (officially :)) and perhaps what I like the most about the album, its variety. Everything is packed into the LETS GROW sound, there aren’t any unpleasant jumps or mixing of all and everything but definitely there isn’t the “Ouch! But all the songs are the same!” either. And I think that that variety is exactly what makes the album interestnig to listen to. As for the sound, it’s aggressive, fast and edgy in the LG style but also with rocker parts and in some places subdued rhythms.
The lyrics refer to different themes inspired by various reflections, events and feelings. Some stand for themselves while others have an additional background story, like on previous LG releases.
I like that this is one more HA-KO release (which I also noticed in the Unison’s THE SUM) where the growth of the band is apparent; keeping the old sound but also transforming it into something new, fresh and as far as LG is concerned, more ‘serious’. This is my as much as possible honest opinion while I am listenting to the album and listing through the booklet. (http://www.hakobastards.com/english/release_details.php?id=15)
Let's Grow is a fantastic hardcore band from Belgrade, Serbia, and they have already released 2 7"s from labels such as 625 and Know Records. What we have in this CD is 13 songs of no bullshit, energetic, pissed off hardcore in the vein of 80s USA hardcore. Crucial! (http://www.wakhc.blogspot.com/)
With each release, Serbia's Let's Grow does, indeed, grow as a band. Their new album is called Disease Of Modern Times and it's a dose of ripsaw hardcore punk with rock 'n' roll lead guitar licks. Thrash in different speeds, sometimes opting fot the double-speed blast and they shift easily into circle pit-inspiring breakdowns. Smack in the middle of this album, there's a killer mid-tempo 9 Shocks-style song called "Man Is The Measure". The cover shows a lonely soul, shaded in darkness, staring at a computer screen that says "no new messages" and ties in with other themes of alienation expressed on this album.

SEE YOU IN HELL 7"
This band born from the ashes of MRTVA BUDOCNOST. After a demo and a split 7" with MINDLOCK, we have a full EP...6 new tracks + a D.R.I. cover. The style is HC/Violence sometimes like bands on Prank/Crimetinc. Rec. Modern yet violent HC with well done and structured songs. Harsh vocals, chaotic music (but a chaos with a certain order...) and political/personal lyrics. Great stuff.(Perro Maldito issue 2)
SEE YOU IN HELL 7"
After successful split 7" with MINDLOCK it's time for more.In line-up of SYIH is ex-crew of thrash-punk MRTVA BUDOUCNOST. Tunes are much better, more twisted, there is almost no fat playing, just broken rhytms, slow and heavy, a bit Emo-Violence where you can hear RORSCHACH and BORN AGAINST, but inclinations to thrash are preceptible, sometimes you can ever hear CITIZEN'S ARREST and few dodges similar to MAN IS THE BASTARD. And as a dessert DRI and my favourite "Violent Pacification", very nice EP. Colour cover, lyrics in Czech and English, political and engaged. 7 songs of good kick ass punk. (VIOLENCE issue 4)
SEE YOU IN HELL 7"
Powerful hardcore punk from the Czech Republic that barrows from several styles and churns out their own unique sound(closest band that comes to my mind is Catharsis). Lots of tempo changes, breaks, and melodic breakdowns - all played in a perfect performance tighter than the ass crack of a bicycle cop. Lyrics (in Czech, but with English translations) explore the darker side of humanity, and include a cover of DRI's "Violent Pacification." (DS) (PROFANE EXISTENCE website)
SEE YOU IN HELL 7"
Again a band from the Czech Republic to review. Fast hardcore this time. That's fastcore with a touch of grind here and there to be precise. Sung in Czech which gives it a mean bite to my opinion. Good material because it's fast, to the point and mean. Recordings a bit muddy but the quality is recognizable. There's a DRI cover on as well so you know what this is like. (REFLECTIONS issue 15)
Como este grupo me gusta bastante, creo que voy a hacerles un poco de promo de su proxima gira. Aqui estan las fechas. Si vives cerca de alguno de estos sitios, vete a verlos y disfruta de un buen concierto hcpunk. Y si te gustan mucho, y tienes algun dinero para gastar, comprales unos discos, camisetas, ... Su ultimo lp esta posteado aqui y un dia de estos subire uno de sus primeros ep's
As i like this band a lot i think that i'll make them a little promotion of their upcoming tour. Here are the dates. If you live near of some of these places, go see 'em, and enjoy a cool hcpunk gig. And if you like em enough and have some money to spend, buy 'em some stuff (records, t-shirts,...)Their last lp is posted here and i'll try to post one of their old ep's in some days

"Kalv and Steve from Heresy are now driving thrashing again with former members of Hard to Swallow and Iron Monkey. A very straight-into-the-point hardcore punk. This CD contains the tracks from their first EP "NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS" and following "LIFE HALF OVER" EP, plus special track as a bonus for this Japanese edition CD. Exclusive artwork for Japanese edition only, with lyrics translation (en/jp), OBI strip."
Only $11.50 PPD WORLDWIDE (including SAL postage), so what are you waiting for!?!
Finally, a NEW Social Circkle record. This time around, they bring us 4 songs with a faster-tighter feel. Still has the catchy aspects of the "Static Eyes" ep but with even more energy and speed. If you liked their last ep, you'll definetly love this one. This band can really do no wrong in our book.
If you like it, buy it.
"Second single, new guitarist, pretty different approach overall, but Social Circkle still treads on. Gone is the clean guitar of the demo, and abated are the straight lines and the slower, more Anglophilic notions of the first EP. Here the Crickle plows straight into more modern hardcore territory, blazing through four new tracks with almost no room for breath until the more solid, piecemeal riffage of closer “I Don’t Want” takes hold. Still pretty great, just different than before; makes me wonder how their ideas might translate to a full-length. 2000 copies, first 200 on clear."--Doug Mosurock, Still Single, dustedmagazine.com
The 2nd ep from these Albany, NY HC Maniacs. 4 songs of bulldozer HC/PUNK that will have you breaking shit in seconds. The ep is over and done in a matter of minutes
leaving you wanting to play it at least twice.
Track 5 serves as a hidden track or something. Its just a stupid dub song anyway.

Following up their debut 7", Washington, DC's Coke Bust bring another six tracks of pure thrashing hardcore punk, musically reminiscent of bands like What Happens Next? and Tear It Up with some negative lyrics and a pissed-off attitude.
Fast, pissed, DC straight edge hardcore that straight don't give a fuck. Influenced by INFEST and YOUTH OF TODAY, their new EP has 6 new harcore blasts. Speed- the temporal kind- has a lot to do with Coke Bust’s aesthetic. The entire Fuck Bar Culture EP lasts only four-and-a-half minutes. 'We try to take modern hardcore and speed it up,' says Candela of Coke Bust’s methodology. It works and this rages! (xsentientx.com)
Nashville, TN's LIFE TRAP have given the world their debut ep of NO BULLSHIT hardcore punk. Fast as hell, and so incredibly tight it'll have you wondering what's in the water down there. This band has so much energy it feels like it's about to burst out of the record. 7 songs of pure anger and adrenaline. Watch out for these guys. For Fans of ARTICLES OF FAITH, POISON IDEA, and KORO. (No Way Records)
Wow! Much has been written already about this fairly new Nashville HC band (especially the live show) and they already have a 7? out. Blast after blast of early 1980Æs style hardcore comes at you through your speakers, like a force unknown before. I know many think this style is getting tired, but Life Trap makes you a believer again.This record destroys, I really need to see this band play. -Dave K. (hardwaremediaandradio.net)
You know where you are with No Way releases; they're all good. This is no exception, fast, sketchy hardcore punk from Nashville. You get one of those 'shit! is this meant to be run at 45' moments when you put this on. But yeah, if you like Deranged stuff, Feral Ward stuff, you'll love this. - Nick (saladdayspunkrock.blogspot.com)
Life Trap from Nashville, TN burst onto the scene last year with one of the sickest demos I'd heard in ages, and those lucky ducks at No Way Records got to release their debut EP. This continues in the crushing vein of their demo... rugged, US-style HC with truly standout vocals. Think Articles of Faith, Rebel Truth, etc. (Sorry State Records)
This came out of nowhere, the demo songs online were cool, but holy shit! These guys are all pretty young; but play faster, tighter and better than most bands twice their age. Fast songs about frustration and rage. At No Way Fest they covered Koro and Articles of Faith, and I can't think of a better comparison. (bleedingedges.net)
Tenia este disco en mp3 desde hace unos meses y era uno de mis favoritos, pero la calidad del ripeo no me gustaba. Hace poco me compre el disco y he podido ripearlo, y ahora si merece la pena compartirlo. Uno de los mejores discos hardcore del año pasado.
I had this one in mp3 from some moths ago, and was one of my favourites, but i didn't like the quality of the rip. Some days ago i bought this one, and now i can share a good rip of this. One of the best hardcore records of the last year.
Divshare ha puesto un limite de descarga para las cuentas gratuitas de 50GB al mes. Hace 2 dias estaba en el 30% mas o menos y hoy me encuentro con que esta al 100%. Sorprendemente hay por lo menos un disco que ha sido descargado mas de 100 veces en estos 2 dias, lo que es bastante extraño, ya que no creo que sea normal ese ritmo de bajadas, pero bueno, habra que tragar con lo que hay y esperar al 16 de Febrero para seguir descargando.
Como este ha sido el primer mes que hacen esto, el mes que viene intentare controlar mas como va el ritmo de descargas, y si esto ha sido una cosa puntual, o si voy a tener el mismo problema todos los meses. En este caso, ya empezare a usar alguna otra pagina, pero por ahora me gustaria seguir usando divshare. Ya veremos lo que se me ocurre!!!
Lo siento, pero el 16 de febrero esta relativamente cerca
No More Downloads Until February16th
Divshare have put out a limit for dowloads of 50GB/month, and in 2 days my account have passed from 30% to 100%. So, there's no possibility to download more stuff until February 16th
It will depend on how the things go next month, that i'll begin to use other hosting pages or not, but right now i can't think neither in pay, neither in upload to other pages.
Sorry, but remember February 16th is almost near
He visto que no se podra descargar de nuevo hasta el 16 de Febrero, no hasta el 1, como pensaba yo. Asi que imagino que si en unos 10 dias he superado los 50GB, tendre el mismo problema casi todos los meses. En principio, las posibles novedades imagino que las subire a rapidshare o mediafire (¿alguna otra idea?, y sobre lo que esta en el blog ahora hare lo siguiente:
Si te interesa bajar un disco ponlo en los comentarios de este post e intentare subirlo lo antes posible. Asi solo tengo que subir los discos que interesan y no pierdo el tiempo subiendo cosas que nadie quiere (que con tiempo acabare resubiendo)
I've noticed that divshare won't allow more downloads until February 16th, not until 1, like a thought. So, if in 10 days i've reach the limit, i'll have the same problem every month
So at first, the next new uploads will be to rapidshare or mediafire (any other idea?); and about what it's now in the blog and you can't download, let's make this:
If you want to download some record put it in the comments of this post, and i'll try to upload it ASAP; in this way i'll only have to upload the records that people want, not losing time with records nobody wants now (I'll upload 'em too, but with time)
New german outfit brings us 7 songs of killer US inpspired HC in the vein of early Negative Approach, Agnostic Front but also has catchy elements of Toxic Reasons and Zero Boys in the song writing. Lots of hate as well as enegy and great riffs make for one hell of a release. If you heard their demo and liked it, then you'll shit a brick over this one. Good shit!
IDIOTS RULE - s/t 7" (Hate) EUR 4.00
After the well done 'Demo' these german smoking maniacs went back to the studio and recorded a couple more songs for their debut EP. They deliver 6 tracks of straightforward 80's hardcore with political and personal inyourface lyrics. This one is angry, dirty and straight. If you like the releases on No Way or Deranged Records you should give those german wankers a try! (http://www.xsentientx.com)
These insane skatecore legends hailing straight from Worcester Massachusetts are no strangers to killer releases. With many amazing sold out 7"s under their belt, it's no surprise their first full length CD thrashes even harder. This CD contains songs about getting wasted, parties, skateboarding, and struggling with everday life
Track 15 is unlisted so just named it Bonus Track
If you like it, buy it
Ripping new full-length from this Massachusetts band on Gnarly Slaughter Records. These guys definitely have the crossover thing down... clearly influenced by DRI's Dealing with It LP, they also sound a lot like the early Municipal Waste stuff.(Sorry State Records)
After a pile of 7"s Concrete Facelift finally has a full length CD. Amazing fast hardcore punk! You really need to buy this! you will not be disappointed. (http://welfarerecords.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=42) In this page you can get one 780 x 764 píxeles pic of the cover.
if you own the rights to any of the music posted here, and would like it removed, just contact me, and I will promtly delete it. also, if you download something, and like it, BUY IT.
Mediafire has blocked my account. I think that the complaint it's not done by the bands or labels, but for a kind of "robot". The last warning i received from Mediafire was for a Civil Terror record, and in the post where i posted it, one of the band members thanked me for share it. All the other warnings i've received has been from records with not so many downloads, (No Slogan, Canadian Rifle, Vile Nation,...) and even one with band permission (Estricalla). But i don't want to fight with Mediafire for recover my account.
Little by little, i'll try to upload all the records to another file hosting service that right now it's working well for me. If any of you have problems to download, make some comment in the first post and i'll try to give you a temporary link
