SICKOIDS-"Sickoids" LP

















This Lp is a diamond in the rough. Just pure and simple hardcore at it's finest. I was asked to hold off on posting by their members which I obliged and now it seems that I have been beaten to the punch so to speak but either way this should be available on multiple sites. Totally crucial.

SUBTONIX-"Tarantism" LP

SUBTONIX-"Tarantism" LP






















In my opinion this is the most essential Deathrock record from SF bay from the late 90's. These ladies had speed and dance-ability in a genre that sometimes lacks forward motion in exchange for atmosphere. I know Jesse went on to form another great band THE VANISHING, but never have managed to hear much about what the others went on to do. If you know feel free to enlighten us.

BOSTON STRANGLER-"Primitive" LP






















This band is surely influenced by old school Boston hardcore legends and that is a good thing. The sound is great and personally, I welcome the youthcrew old school hardcore sound back into the DIY punk scene. This is music to dance to, just leave out the macho bullshit and keep it fun!

FATAL RAGE- "s/t" LP






















What can I say? Fatal Rage plays perfect 80's hardcore punk. This record is essential and should be repressed immediately. Come on Brandon and Lauren!

The War Goes On-"This Shitty Life" EP















This record has taken quite awhile to see the light of day, but as always, it was worth the wait. For those of you who know the demo this will be no big surprise but there are a few things changed here. First off we have an additional guitar track added, it has been re-mixed by Lasse Ballade at Planet-X, and has been properly mastered for vinyl by Hajji Husayn. The three songs on this are seething with depression and rage which comes off great with the raw delivery of the band. The closest thing I can compare TWGO to is Ronni's last band No Hope for the Kids but less melodic, and without every song being about war, . There is a distinct introspective element to the lyrics for sure. Another great band from K-town with members of all the bands you already like. This record was also done with limited hand-made covers. Thanks to the band for playing a great record release show here in Hamburg!

Top Ten of 2011 as seen in MRR no. 345

LP’s:
BRAINOIL - “Death in this Dry Season” LP (20 Buck Spin)
It’s been a long wait for these guys to release a new record and this one is full of all sorts of energy, as well as some of the heaviest riffs you will ever hear in underground punk. I’m totally floored by the sheer power of this record. listen

WARSONG-”Ancient Times” LP (The Pression)












Really catchy melodic punk rock from Zaragoza Spain. These guys have been pretty busy in past bands, but in my opinion this is more varied musically than any of their previous bands, and therefore more notable than any of their past efforts. This record is really solid all the way through in the same way that bands like NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS, or PELIGRO SOCIAL, have managed to be. listen

BELGRADO-”s/t” LP (Static Shock)












This is the quintessential death rock record made by punks in the 2000’s. It has tons of hooks that are reminiscent of all the 80’s favorites, but has enough energy and musical ability to come away sounding fresh and super danceable, and heartfelt. listen

SMART COPS-”Per Proteggere E 
Sevile” LP (Sorry State)


This band is so blatantly overlooked it should be criminal. This record is probably one of the best hardcore records in years. Totally saturated in garage-style hooks but with enough speed and energy to remain totally modern and powerful. listen

RIPPER-”Into Oblivion” LP (Black Water)







This is the best marriage of punk and metallic rock n’roll since INEPSY. The hooks fill every nook and cranny that hasn’t been taken by the pummeling rhythm section. listen

NO PROBLEM -”And Now This” LP (Deranged)


This record has to be up there with GOVERNMENT WARNING “No Moderation” and “Arrested”, and a slew of records by CAREER SUICIDE, as the top of the game hardcore bands going these days. NO PROBLEM play flawless hardcore that doesn’t sound like any other band and is easily recognizable.
listen


DEATH TOKEN-”All Dreams are Nightmares” LP (Adult Crash)

This record has been in the works for a long time. Well, it was worth the wait. The sounds of this record harken back to those of thrash bands like B.G.K. and VENOM, while mixing in some great mid tempo rage-rs in the haunting style of RUDIMENTARY PENI. Need I say more?
listen

HARDA TIDER-”Gatan Kallar” LP (Instigate)








This is the best Hardcore band since CRO MAGS! See them live anywhere in Sweden and you will become a believer. The record just pummels the listener the entire way through. Scathing Scandi style riffs with brutal breakdowns and gang vocals. Don’t think this is a tough guy macho hardcore band though. This is as underground as it gets. You will find the band members at every DIY show in the Malmo area. listen

UNLEARN-”s/t” LP (Deranged)


This record is everything you want from a apocalyptic punk record. Screaming vocals about antisocial behavior and a world without a future. All the while accompanied by searing raw guitars and charging drums. sample


GOVERNMENT FLU-”Are You Sorry Now” LP (Nikt Nic Nie Wie)


This record reminds me that talented kids still get together and make hardcore music which won’t stay trapped in easy definitions of what a 80’s style hardcore band should sound like. The LP is recorded with the perfect amount of ferocity and perfection. It’s a shame so many people will overlook this band because they aren’t from a big city where there are tons of great bands releasing records all the time. Check this out.
Listen

PELIGRO!-”s/t” LP 



This is the closest a band has come to playing ANNIHILATION TIME style hardcore with rock n’roll riffage that doesn’t rip every single element of theirs off. PELIGRO! keep a firm foot planted in their Spanish hardcore roots, but with tons of BLACK SABBATH and MOTORHEAD guitar noodling. The songs are energetic and filled with passion. Really great! listen
