Wiccans - Sailing A Crazy Ship LP

"Another flat-out ripper from Denton, Texas' WICCANS. Nine raging cuts of metallic-tinged hardcore mayhem featuring members of BAD SPORTS, RADIOACTIVITY, and VIDEO. Previous LP on Katorga Works. "Recorded by Denton legends MARK RYAN and JEFF BURKE (of Marked Men), the nine tracks are fast and ferocious, lacking the slow dirges of previous full-lengths. The boys are sailing fast, but maintaining complete control over their ship. The title track's intro gives listeners the uncertain, cautious sensation of a vessel lifting off, but a galloping pogo beat confirms that Wiccans have reached outer space, and are cutting through the cosmos at light-speed. This band gives me hope that hardcore can still be inventive and creative, while staying true to being what it is: angry, destructive music. Basically this is the best Wiccans record yet, and you'd be a fool not to pick it up."

Tigress - Self Titled EP

"Dig it: the harbingers of Chicago hardstyle are here. Tigress, the soundtrack to a night spent up to no good, of bottles breaking windows, of a cop taking a brick to the teeth. A whirlwind of camo and jerseys, this is the antidote to a billion flaccid bands touting brotherhood, the antithesis of self-indulgent essays by aged-out, boutique hardcore curators. 

Dig it: Are you caught in a mosh? Or is the mosh caught in you?"

Negando Nuestra Existencia - Esto no es violencia, es la guerra contra el olvido


Saturday, May 6, 2017


"Absolutely furious Icelandic hardcore punk. And for you non-natives the title Ofbeldi translates to Violence which is a very appropriate description of the sounds you'll find here. Twisting dagger fuzz guitar, murder-chorused bass, brass knuckle beats and vocals that melt a body down like an acid bath. A real mean ear fucker. "

Touring the US in July 2017 so watch out for that!!
