ACEPHALIX - st (Prank) - 6€
A brutal combination of low end metallic distortion, pummeling riffs and gnarled vocals, San Francisco's ACEPHALIX's debut 4- song 7" takes influence from all over the map of extreme music - from CELTIC FROST to CRO-MAGS and INTEGRITY, from WOLFPACK and later ANTI-CIMEX to SACRILEDGE and AXEGRINDER, but has hammered out and forged its own sound by relentless gigs around the SF Bay Area over the past year. Featuring current and former members of THE RIFFS, DEPRESSOR, POISON IDEA, DEFIANCE, DEATHCHARGE and BLOWN TO BITS, this is the heaviest thing Prank has released in almost fifty releases, a modern attack; yet reminiscent of early classic Prank releases by DAMAD, ELDOPA 1332 and the bleak punk metal fusions of the late 90's and early 00's.

ANTI STATE CONTROL "glu sniffing
blues" (Vomitopunkrock) - 6€
Anti State Control were from Great Dunmow in Essex and had their brief moment in the sun in the early 80's. They recorded a cassette called 'We Are The Leopards' and a practice tape but their only proper single was 1983's 'Sniffing Glue Blues' ep which is now one of the rarest UK punk singles from the 80's.

BEASTMILK "use your deluge" (Svart) – 6€
"use your deluge" was originally issued as a 4-song 7" in 2012. Early discoverers of the 7" were treated to the apocalyptic, post-punk brilliance that the rest of the world would come to clamor for a year later with "climax", the band's breakthrough full-length debut. The expanded fervor for "climax" sent music fans in search of the entire BEASTMILK catalog. Rabid demand drove eBay activity through the roof and the band enlisted Svart and Magic Bullet Records to re-press both 7"s in efforts to meet the sudden and increasing demand.

A mandatory reissue of three of the finest tracks West-Berlin Hardcore Punk had to offer in 1983. It is about time this gem of a 7” was finally reissued. Uncompromising HC Punk with a killer production that is raw yet powerful! “High on War” has got to be one of the best songs by any German Punk band in the 80s, but the other two songs are great, too. The packaging on this one is pretty deluxe and really does the music justice: The EP comes in a heavy silk screened cardboard sleeve, a printed dust sleeve, plus an insert with liner-notes by Tom Schwoll (Zerstörte Jugend etc.). Here is your chance to pick this one up at a normal price 31 years after it originally came out!

Προφανώς, προτείνεται σε φίλους των Minor Threat και Government Issue, αλλά και των Bad Brains και Necros.
BLANK SPELL st (World Gone Mad) - 6€
Debut 7" from this rad hardcore band out of Philadelphia. Maybe it's the heavy chorus effect on the guitar or maybe it's the fact that they're from Philly, but Blank Spell remind me quite a lot of Sorry State favorites Sickoids. In addition to those two common characteristics, Blank Spell also have those really interesting, quick rhythmic changes that are such a big part of the Sickoids sound. Additionally, while the main vocalist is a woman she seems to use her vocals in a similar way to Rob from Sickoids; like his, they're really distinctive and powerful, but not really "catchy" by any conventional definition of the term. Instead, it's like the vocals are used as a supplementary rhythmic instrument that augments and accents what the drums are doing. All of these Sickoids comparisons aren't meant to imply that Blank Spell are some kind of Sickoids rip-off--they're definitely their own thing--but it does imply that if you like(d?) what Sickoids are doing, then you will most certainly like what Blank Spell is doing. If you like your hardcore DIY as hell and dense with interesting ideas definitely give this a listen. The packaging on this is also really nice, with some really cool illustrations and lettering on the front and back and a big fold-out poster insert that follows a similar aesthetic. Definitely recommended listening.
BLOOD SUCKERS "night of the sadist" (Hardware) - 5€

The best song writing - distilling riffs into simpleness with no filler!
THE BRISTLES "don´t give up" (Threat From The Past) - 4€
The Bristles from Landskrona, Sweden were formed in the year 1982, the band name was inspired by the title of the G.B.H. album "Leather, Bristles, Studs And Acne". THE BRISTLES started their career in the beginning of the second wave of Punk and were influenced by bands like THE EXPLOITED and developed from Punk with OI! influences to a Raw Punk band. Together with swedish bands like ASTA KASK, SÖTLIMPA, EXISTENZ, MODERAT LIKVIDATION, NONCENS, E.A.T.E.R., ANTI-CIMEX and many others, THE BRISTLES were the new breed of fast playing bands that released mostly singles and played a lot of gigs.

"Down So Long" b/w "Medicine Man" is a two song banger of an EP, recorded by Josh Korody at Candle in Toronto (Fucked Up, etc). Opener "Down So Long" emerges from ghostly feedback with an unrelenting punk romp. Lyrically addressing the social chaos of our world askew, despite the illusion of military and political order. While the infectious "Medicine Man" addresses fashionable drug addiction in the punk world, despite the trail of havoc that it cuts through the most wounded of world populations.

"BASIC TRAINING" features 10 tracks of primal and vicious USHC not unlike fellow Virginians WHITE CROSS with whom they shared the stage many times over their brief existence. Select tracks from this session would go on to be featured on compilations like THE MASTER TAPE VOL. 2 on Paul Mahern's Affirmation Records (along side bands like MECHT MENSCH, ZERO BOYS, NO LABELS, and many more) and the legendary all Virginia TARANTULA ON MY COCK tape that guitarist Jeff Clites would release in 1983, but this is the first time all of these songs have officially appeared together the way they were meant to.

GERANIUM / FINISTERRE split (Contraszt!) - 3€
Both bands have been around for some time now and maintain a long-lasting friendship, that is finally pressed on this little piece of vinyl !
FINISTERRE from Cologne / Germany deliver two excellent songs, probably their most matured and outstanding output ever.
Their previous one-sided 12" "Hexis" already guided the direction and Finisterre take up this path and follow it further, playing an intense and dark style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, and sludge, within their distinct own sound. Hardcore with a crust edge - dark & sometimes melodic, with great female vocals and deep political lyrics!
On the other side - GERANIÜM from Strassbourg / France with one long songs full of anger and despair. Incredibly brutal! They have been playing a lot since their last years LP and should be well known to everyone into HC / Neo-Crust à la Ekkaia and Alpinist.

GUTTER s/t (Self Released) - 5
Καινούριο εφτάρι απο τους Gutter. 5 κομμάτια. Δυναμίτης!
(Refuse) - 4€
Straight from the depths of the Polish underground in the early 90's, Hacesja from Poznań was a band active between 1990-1992. More of a powerful example of youthful enthusiasm than musical skills, they still prove to this day how young idealist DIY scene members in Poland at that time had a motivation so strong that they inspired people to start making their own noise in basements all over the country. It was a time that was all about connections and networking and the members of Hacesja were heavily involved in tape-trading all over the world. The raw, noisy and downright primitive sound of Hacesja reflects their fascination of more extreme HC sounds and bands like Lärm, Neos, Siege or Infest, or even early grindcore. The lyrics and (anti)music give the impression that these three youngsters were well entertained themselves, likely while making their neighbors go insane. Hacesja was one of the very first bands in Poland to promote straight-edge. Drummer of this band, Adam Szulc started after that the most significant Polish Straight Edge band: Cymeon X. In 1990 Hacesja released a tape on US label Aneurysm Tapes with rehearsal and live recordings. This 7" contains the rehearsal side of the tape. It contains 8 songs including an Infest cover. It's strictly limited to 220 copies. It comes with a 12-page booklet including notes from each member and reprints of old interviews from "Maximum RocknRoll" and "Jersey Beat".

Great vocals on this one, too. This is a great 3 Tracks record, but not for PC addicted guys. Awesome artwork by Sugi, limited to 500.
MARTYRDöD / ADRESTIA "in solidarity with rojava" - 5€
Benefit EP, limited on 500 copies!
"In Solidarity With Rojava" is a split EP featuring two intense hardcore crust bands from Sweden. Martyrdöd shouldn't need any further introduction, the band has been delivering high quality crust punk since 2001, and today they have established themselves as a leading band in the genre.
Adrestia is a relatively new band, even though some of the members might be familiar because of their previous work in bands such as Shades Of Grey and Massmord. This EP is their first official release.
The bands contribute with two songs each. The Martyrdöd side of the EP starts with "Harmagedon", a song previously released on the "List" LP from 2016. It continues with a previously unreleased track called "Harmagedon part 2".
The Adrestia side features "Opium", as well as "The Sun Of Rojava", a tribute to the freedom fighters of Rojava. "The Sun Of Rojava" can also be heard of their debut album "The Art Of Modern Warfare", which will be released later this year.
However, the purpose of this EP goes beyond music. In a common statement the bands declare that this is a benefit record for Rojava, and that all profit from the sales of the record will go directly to Rojava.
They emphasize the similarities between the anarchist ideology often seen as the fundament of the crust punk scene, and the political system in Rojava.
The bands have created their own label/support organization called "Punks For Rojava" (www.punksforrojava.org) solely for the purpose of supporting Rojava, and besides the release of this EP there are more project with the same purpose coming up.

NATURAL LAW "spring trash" (Hardware) - 5€
These 4 songs originally came out in 2010 as a self-released tape. Hailing from the New Jersey and New York areas, NATURAL LAW cultivate a gritty, rough, superbly '80s sound on their "spring trash" demo. The songs which vary from frantic hardcore lunacy to floorboard rattling pounders usher for its rumbling 6min. existence. NATURAL LAW is by no means complicated, but this is an excellent starting point, especially for a demo tape.
NERVOUS TREND "shattered b/w decency" (Black Wire) - 6€
Perth, Australia’s NERVOUS TREND releases their first 7″ EP as a split release with RESIDUE RECORDS (USA), SCHWARMA (USA), and BLACK WIRE RECORDS (Australia).

THE PROJECTIONS "detroit punk rock history repeats itself" (Rave Up) - 5€
The Projections was a punk / powerpop / garage band formed in Detroit in the early 80s.
Mario Micheli (bass, vocals and littering), Tony Samuels (drums) and Johnny Spark (known outside of Detroit music circles as John Micheli, guitars, vocals and attitude).

PROTESTANT "antagonist" (Halo of Flies) - 4€
Protestant from Wisonsin, USA, deliver three tracks of exploding and brutal hardcore. The main path here is dark and powerful hardcore with hard rhythms and thundering beats, but Protestant are a lot more hardcore than that with their speed and aggressiveness, and the music takes more than one turn with the occasional doom-laden riffs lurking around one corner and blastbeats around another. The guitar work on here also brings forth thoughts of black metal from time to time with their evil sounding harmonies. There's more to this band than the average "dark and heavy hardcore band" and there's another level of depth that many others lack. Spitting vocals, ravelling riffs, and an alternation and combination of the crushing rhythms and rapid deliverances makes the word "powerful" seem like an understatement when it comes to the three tracks on this piece of wax. Screen-printed cover with an 8-page booklet.
RAKTA "tudo que e sólido" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 5€
Brazil's RAKTA unleash two new tracks of eerie and atmospheric post punk. From the moment the songs start you will find yourself trapped in a cave of beautiful, yet haunting tunes, in most cases, people will want to seek a way out, in Rakta's case, you will never want to leave. 'Tudo Que E Solido' is an instant nugget that fits somewhere between BLOOD AND ROSES and THE DOORS. It's driven by the tom tom work and the insistent and drone like keyboard work. The track builds and builds into a dark cresendo. On the flip is 'Serpente' - a 6 minute and 15 seconds dirge that's part SIOUXIE AND THE BANSHEES' 'Lord's Prayer' and part 'Ballet Bag' demo era RUBELLA BALLET.
The record comes housed in a beautifully put together booklet sleeve wraparound with printed inner sleeves with art by guitarrist Laura Del Vecchio Lança.
RAW NERVES "burnt skin" (Inimical) - 4€
Raw Nerves follows up the well recieved LP and 7" from last year with another short burst of politically minded rage.

Offering up three songs railing against religion, misogyny and apathetic punk culture. As always, their release coincides with touring that will see them take their message directly to the people whether they want to hear it or not.

This is the real deal!
RIXE "baptême du feu" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
French Oi! poster boys Rixe return with EP number three. Again it's a four tracker and there is no let up in the quality. It's full of snarl, bite and anthems. Tenter Le Diable starts the onslaught with some immense tom tom work before heading into another classic Rixe Oi! pounder. Paris-Est begins with a military beat before the guttural vocals and crunching guitars come in and smash you over the head. Every part of this two minutes and 53 seconds song is precise and perfect pop. Condamné is a straight down the line Oi! smash full of hate and bile and that Rixe wall of sound we know and love already. Last cut Hécatombe is a total head nodder that has bounce and a chorus to either die for or sing-a-long to Three EPs in and Rixe continue to take Oi! to new heights.
As it is a tradition on the Rixe 7” trilogy Baptême Du Feu 7" comes housed in a reverse board sleeve with collaborative artwork between Nick Rat and Maxime Smadja. Comes with lyric insert and download code.
S.H.I.T. "i" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
S.H.I.T. have been one of the best bands doing it live and on record for a few years now and here on their fourth 7" (and first since 2014) they reassert their place as mainstays of Toronto's killer scene by serving up four more tracks of total hardcore moving forward through chaos. Insidiation blowing a wild storm hung around an unstoppable chugging riff, panic and terror building as the song pounds onwards. Incorporation shifting from warped siren blare to terrible tear. Barks of frustration, howls of anger, emerging from the bruising punk squall, anguished and disgusted. A record that careers with breakneck verve from sinister pulse to blazing hardcore bombardment.
S.H.I.T.S’s new EP artwork was designed by the greatest Teodoro Hernández and comes with a download code.

A hastily made debut album was released later on same year for mixed reviews and then a couple of 7 inchers more, but nothing like the first single emerged and Sensuuri's career was over after only a year. Drummer Pasi Pakarinen joined later the Ramones style group Pojat and guitarist/songwriter Costello Hautamäki became a notable person in finnish rockscene, most known for his membership in "The Rolling Stones of Finland", Popeda.
SEX PRISONER "demo 2009" (To Live A Lie) - 5€
You have probably heard their self titled EP, the State Property EP, and most likely you've heard tracks from their three way split with ACXDC and MAGNUM FORCE but before any of that the band recorded a vicious and raw demo that was put out on a limited tape. If you haven't heard any SEX PRISONER then you're in for a treat. They hail from Tuscon, Arizona and from their music it must be an awful place because their music is beyond pissed. They fold in equal amounts of angry modern hardcore and blasting powerviolence to make a cacophony of scathing noise. The original 2009 demo material was expertly cleaned up by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound and pressed as a limited release on vinyl for your listening pleasure.

SICK PEOPLE "in my nightmare" (Urban Rage) - 3€
2nd EP from this hardcore punk band out of Brisbane, Australia. Big, mean, and menacing, Sick People fit comfortably in that category of gnarly, oi!-inflected hardcore made popular in recent years by bands with the word "Violent" in their name (i.e. Future, Outburst, Reaction, etc.). There have been a lot of imitators of this style lately, but Sick People are worth contenders to the throne... the production on this is both huge and slightly raw, and the drums crush forward at an absolutely perfect moshable pace, with the occasional pause for a ripping, Negative Approach-type fast part. While Australia has been killing it with post-punk lately, it's rare to find a totally legit US-style hardcore band from there, but this EP from Sick People sticks out from a pretty crowded pack. Great packaging, too, including a lushly illustrated fold-over jacket and LP-style printed inner sleeve.

SLUGZ "empty space" (Cowabunga) - 4€
Slugz were a band I caught the name of either on fliers for a bit of time online or fliers I'd randomly get from VA friends but never heard em' until I got the 'Suit and Tie' EP last year off Sam and had my mind blown. Pefect blend (to these ears) of late 70's punk, 1980-81 HC, garage punk/rock and rockin' riffs. Plus to make it a bit different from the rest, vocalist Sam (Sam is also the name of their guitarist, who you may know best from Got Myself zine infamy!) is intense as it gets, screaming and howling and its very non traditional for this style of punk but it totally works! I can't try and sell you anymore on this, this is truly solid stuff from a bunch of talented youths.
