a new band from Washington D.C..They are inspired equally by traditional '80s
US hardcore and Japanese d-beat groups like Framtid or D-Clone. If you like raw
and noisy hardcore-punk with great guitar melodies and a driving rhythm
section, this one's for you.
Label: Kizmiaz / Off The Hip Year: 2017 Country: Australia
Brat Farrar has become well known as a member of such great bands as Digger And The Pussycats, Russian Roulettes or Kamikaze Trio. Since a few years he has started a solo projekt and this is already is third full lenght. Once again the individual songs cover a wide range of influences. Imagine a product of Wipers, Chrome, New Order and Farrar's previous bands.
Rapture are a new band from Leeds. They play a fast and melodic style of 80s straight edge hardcore not unlike Youth Of Today or Turning Point. If I didn't know it any better I would think Kevin Seconds is doing the vocals here. I usually don't like straight edge hardcore but this demo tape is really worth it.
ist the demo debut from this new Atlanta group. While listening to the six
songs there are elements of classic 70s punk and 80s hardcore lurking
throughout, but at the same time the recordings sound fresh and unmistakabletake.
with it’s noisy eruptions is a main highlight here. Fantastic.
L.A. based group crafts a truly classic sound all while managing to create
furious punk blasts that sounds fresh and not contrived. Dirty & His
Fists' sloppy, unpolished, and basic style of punkrock sounds like it was
directly taken from an "all american punk" Killed By Death
Futuro from Sao Paulo were formely known as B.U.S.H.. The only difference to their old line-up are the female vocals. Futuro play a unique blend of punkrock that combines influences ranging from post-punk to hardcore and garage. Highly recommended!
Label: Agitate Year: 2017 Country: USA Hardcorepunk from Richmond somewhere between traditional US hardcore and Japanese bands from the early 90s like Bastard or Wahrhead. Firing Squad are an absolute ripper of a band. 6 amazing tunes full of rhythmic changes and with a sound that is really their own.
Following their highly recommended debut 7" Balcanes are back with a brandnew 12". The 5 tracks fuse elements of noise-rock, doom and industrial. Reminds me of Swans, Slint, Dead C or Flipper. Great stuff!
Vinyl debut from these k-town punks. The four songs are heavily influenced by late 70s US westcoast punk (X, The Dils, Avengers), but because of the Danish lyrics they also remind me of Gorilla Angreb.
