TIED DOWN

TIED DOWN – s/t 7”EP

  Remember Voorhees from UK? So TIED DOWN feature members from these legends as well as from Break It Up. Now you know what to expect from the veterans of hardcore punk and it is definitely not mellowness. It’s aggression, anger, speed and rawness. TIED DOWN manage to mix the… 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

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

FUCK IT I QUIT

(review) FUCK IT I QUIT – In The Shadow Of Extinction EP

  What do you expect from a cover with stencil letters laid out in a circle, straight from Crass Records covers? And then the booklet with more Crass stencils and short and to the point lyrics on rape culture, American imperialism, and animal abuse? No, not an anarcho punk band… 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
