REPRESSION ATTACK

REPRESSION ATTACK – Return To Instincts 7” EP

  Russian bands do not frequent SANCTUS PROPAGANDA, so let’s change that. REPRESSION ATTACK come from a town near Moscow, called Ryazan and it seems they are not a young band, just not very productive. They self released a cassette and a CD, in 2009 and 2013 respectively, and a… Keep Reading

The Fog

THE FOG – s/t 7” EP

  Another band from Berlin released by Refuse Records, also based in Berlin. THE FOG are a fairly new creature and to my thinking, they require certain audience to appreciate their hardcore. At first I thought I played the single too slow but no, this is how it sounds. It… Keep Reading

Bleach Everything

BLEACH EVERYTHING – So We Gnaw LP

  Released yesterday on vinyl by Dark Operative. BLEACH EVERYTHING is another band from Richmond, US reviewed this week. Having heard their previous EPs I eagerly picked up this release with high expectations. No disappointments. Heavily produced hardcore punk with metal-ish guitars, solid bass and slightly distorted vocals represent the… Keep Reading

FORGIFTAD

FÖRGIFTAD – Bränd Generation 7”EP

  A 2017 release from Swedish punk d-beaters FÖRGIFTAD, which still makes it their last one. The trio shares members with Kronisk Misantropi or Makabert Fynd, so you know there is no cheating here. Although, there is. It starts with a telephone conversation in Swedish when suddenly the name Bolt… Keep Reading

EAT MY FEAR

EAT MY FEAR – Taking Back Space 7” EP

  Refuse Records and Emancypunx Records share more than this anger filled, riot punk EP but let’s focus on the record only. EAT MY FEAR are a Berlin based queer feminist hardcore punk band that use music as another weapon in our fight for a better world. This 6 song… Keep Reading

CHAOBRINGER

Ruinas / Chaosbringer – split LP

  I reviewed RUINAS here more than a year ago and here comes their split LP with Russian CHAOSBRINGER. To start with the Argentinians, let me just say they move in the same circles on this split record as on their debut LP. I recognise two songs get repeated here, but… Keep Reading

RÖVSVETT

RÖVSVETT ‎– Bly, Skrot & Hagel 7”

  We haven’t heard a proper full-length from these Swedish hardcore legends since 2008. Instead, they occasionally throw a few EPs in our way, two of them being released in 2018: the split with BRISTLES and this one.  However, a new LP is already in the pressing plant, entitled “Den… Keep Reading

Matt Heckler

MATT HECKLER – After the Flood LP

  It’s 28 degrees Celsius here, mild wind and the sun is about to set. I am up on the hills, looking down at everything I left behind and imagining it is all virtual. I imagine there are no borders, no currencies, no governments. Only life paths you take. Some… Keep Reading

Warsaw’s Burning Volume 2 – comp. 7”

  Compilations are a rarity these days and in case of this very one, Refuse Records is back with Volume 2 of “Warsaw’s Burning”. There’s a good reason for that. Volume 1 released in 2009 showcased 5 bands, only one of which gets repeated on Volume 2. The other 7… Keep Reading

No-Heads

NO-HEADS – Pressure Cracks 12”

    What a nice wee surprise from Refuse Records. NO-HEADS are from Richmond and continue to do what the classics like Mad Parade from Los Angeles or The Trouble from Boston had started. They mix street punk with hardcore. Not a brand new recipe from a great music to… Keep Reading

LAZY CLASS

LAZY CLASS – Interesting Times CD

    OK, it’s street punk, some say it’s oi! punk or pop punk, so I am the last person to review such record and this review is going to be useless. That said, let’s have a look at some songs here. LAZY CLASS come from Warsaw, Poland and having… Keep Reading

FIXATION

FIXATION – Into the Pain Flexi 7”

  Another fine release from War Records run by a STRIFE member. This time it’s FIXATION from Philadelphia. And yet again, another portion of very fast 4 hardcore songs in under 5 minutes. INFEST fans take notice. It’s ripping, dirty and with great tempo changes characteristic to the genre, where… Keep Reading

BERTHOLD CITY

BERTHOLD CITY – What Time Takes 7”

  BERTHOLD CITY are a fairly new band (2017) based in Los Angeles and consist of members from Strife, World Be Free, Internal Affairs and Allegiance, so you already know what to expect. “What Time Takes” is their second 7” after the debut one entitled “Moment of Truth”. “What Time… Keep Reading

COLD CURSE – Violent Measure 7”

  From California, COLD CURSE were formed in 2013, so quite a while ago, and so far have managed to self-release “Oblivion” EP and a demo tape. This 7” is their first proper release on a label (Creator-Destructor Records) and consists of 4 brilliant tracks that blend d-beat with blasts,… Keep Reading

ISOTOPE

ISOTOPE – Isotope LP

  When I first heard this album, and I admit, this was my first encounter with the band, I was literally on my knees looking for my jaw. It’s that good. Shame ISOTOPE is so unknown in Europe and this album is probably impossible to get hold of here. And… Keep Reading
