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

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

OPEN WOUNDS

(review) OPEN WOUNDS – Invaders LP

  I’d listened to this record dozen times before I actually sat down to review it. I couldn’t put it down and play something else unless NATIONS ON FIRE were around. Speaking of which, this is probably the best name to mention in this case, for two reasons. Both bands… Keep Reading

NEGATIVE VIBES

(review) NEGATIVE VIBES – Broken Mind CD

  It’s getting cramped on my fave Polish hardcore shelf. That’s right. NEGATIVE VIBES are that good and absolutely up my street when it comes to the hardcore style they play, the lyrics, the artwork and the whole production. They started about two years ago and are acting quite fast.… Keep Reading

PROTEIN

(review) PROTEIN – Alive 7”EP

  PROTEIN are straight edge. Well, I am not but I do love all SxE bands that show their sincerity, modesty and do not make a fuss about being straight edge. And I do like good, fast, US inspired hardcore from the 80’s and the 90’s, when all the hardcore… Keep Reading
