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

OVER POWER

(review) OVER POWER – Ruination LP

  I do have a weakness for some grind core, provided it is well recorded and embedded in metal. Death metal preferably. Welcome to OVER POWER from Kediri, East Java – Indonesia. Sounds exotic enough? But the noise they make does not and you are all familiar with such a… Keep Reading

SURYA-Solastalgia

SURYA – Solastalgia. Pre-release review.

I’ve been waiting for this moment for a few months. It’s no secret SURYA is the gang I made friends, travelled and played with, and their music indwells here at SANCTUS PROPAGANDA HQ on regular basis. “Solastalgia” is their second full length album on Argonauta Records and it both, continues… Keep Reading

War_Curse_Eradication_vinyl_jacket_FA

(review) WAR CURSE – Eradiction LP

  Thrash metal fans take notice. It’s been quite a while since I last heard good old Bay Area underground thrash. Except that this one comes from Ohio. I am usually careful when it comes to fairly new metal bands for various reasons and am not overenthusiastic, but in case… Keep Reading

SANCTION THIS

(review) SANCTION THIS – We Are Abandoned LP

  When was the last time you bought a record that captures the spirit of old DIY punk vinyl records? When the cover is glued DIY, the release contains a thick booklet with all the artwork and lyrics are handwritten? This is SANCTION THIS from Newcastle. I love this one.… Keep Reading

DYYM – new band from Poland released their demo

  Featuring members from APATIA, NEXT VICTIM or MIND POLLUTION, DYYM mix what’s best in hardcore punk not sticking to one chosen course.  This means each track surprises you with different intensity, arrangements and vocal styles.  You’ve got trans noise interrupted by relaxing drum beat in “Protect the animals” or… Keep Reading
