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.
AMBULANCE “dawn of a new beginning” (Wasted Sound) – 5€
Pretty polished Melodic Crust from Sweden's Ambulance. Killer production and very nice packaging.
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. The last copy sold for over 700 pounds on Ebay. 'Sniffing Glue Blues' starts all mellow before bursting into life and rage. It's a thrilling yet amateur punk rock nugget. Limited to 300 copies reissue.
ARMS RACE "the
beast" (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
ARMS RACE follow up to their “New Wave Of British Hardcore” LP with four new tracks, which sees the band solidify their place as one of the strongest pillars of UK hardcore. Touring Europe and Japan since the release of the LP, these 4 new tracks are yet more proof of why the band leaves a trail of fans whenever they play. “The Beast” displays a ferocious hardcore attack with both boots firmly stuck on the hardcore and punk territories while looking forward to new soundscapes on which they evolve, such as on track 'Distort Britannia' that showcases a slowed down atmospheric stomper. Part classic USA Hardcore, part Bristol and Stoke On Trent punk, these new tracks are a perfect continuation of what the band has created during these last 5 years.
The Beast comes housed in a pocket sleeve with artwork by bass player and LVEUM shitworker Nicky Rat and includes a lyric insert and download code.

THE BAYONETTES "stuck
in this rut" (Deranged) - 3€
Toronto’s The Bayonettes combine pop hooks and garage rock swagger with a sneering punk bravado that recalls classic early punk (Avengers, Nasty Facts) while remaining decidedly modern in spirit and execution.
THE BAYONETTES "guilty pleasure" (Deranged) - 3€

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.
BEASTMILK "white stains" (Svart) - 6€
Originally issued in August of 2010, the first incarnation of these songs was a self-released cassette. 2nd edition, 1000 copies, all on black vinyl.
BETON COMBO "sound ltd" (Static Age) - 4€
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!
BLACK MARKET BABY "potential suicide" (Doctor Strange) - 4€
Κυκλοφόρησε πριν από 30 χρόνια περίπου από την Limp Records και εξαφανίστηκε πολύ γρήγορα. Περιέχει δύο ακυκλοφόρητες ζωντανές εκτελέσεις του «America's Youth» και «Killing Time» από το συναυλιάδικο 9:30 Club το 1984 με την επιμέλεια του Tom Lyle των Government Issue, ενώ τα στουντιακά κομμάτια ηχογραφήθηκαν στο Inner Ear (Minor Threat, S.O.A., Teen Idles). 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.
BLAZING EYE - st (La Vida En Us Mus) - 6€
Originally released in USA on Los Angeles based Overdose Records and selling both presses of the record immediately. LVEUM finally makes BLAZING EYE's debut EP available in Europe in preparation of what we hope will be BLAZING EYE tour next year.
Hailing from Los Angeles BLAZING EYE sound lay somewhere between ZOUO, THE SEXUAL and QLOAQA LETAL. That is Japanese inspired hardcore punk with demonic vocals and hard as nail beats which is extremely hard to shake once you hear it. The four distorted tracks on this EP mix perfectly the low end reverb soaked Japanese influences with the best of the International Hardcore Punk of the early 80's. Making it a masterpiece of timeless punk.
THE BLITZZ "go now" (Sing Sing) - 7€
All members of THE BLITZZ could frequently be seen playing at jam sessions in the ‘70s Amstedam rock-scene before they decided to join forces. When Mick Ronson (David Bowie's Spiders from Mars) heard them play at a venue in the Amsterdam Red Light District he immediately fell for the compact sound of the band. This memorable evening led to the recording of 'So Free' in a London recording studio soon afterwards. The first single from The Blitzz was released by EMI in the UK and on the Continent in September 1978. 'So Free' went up the charts in several European countries in the months to follow. In December of the same year their second single 'Go Now' was recorded at the renowned Pebble Beach Studio in Brighton and released in the beginning of 1979. After three years of successful touring the band decided to split up to pursue personal goals.

BRAIN KILLER have made their most powerful and mature release yet. Really it just sounds like a hardcore DISCHARGE, but what else would you want? The best song writing - distilling riffs into simpleness with no filler!
BURNING LOVE "down so long b/w medicine man" (Deathwish) - 4€
Burning Love are an unapologetic punk band from Toronto, fronted by vocalist/lyricist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Left For Dead, Ruination, etc). Burning Love's approach is more nuanced than his previous bands. Mixing raw melody and swagger (akin to Laughing Hyenas, Poison Idea, etc) into their hardcore blood. Since 2007, Burning Love have released a number of records on labels like Deranged, High Anxiety, and Southern Lord.
"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.

EBOLA "imprecation" (Flat Earth) - 5€
Released in 1997 by legendary labels Flat Earth, Enslaved & Refusenik Records, this is Ebola's masterpiece. The one record where everything came together.

After an acclaimed demo on Neutral Words Records in 2017, and stand out live shows across Europe, Stockholm's Existence bring you their debut EP 'Into the Furnace' with a signature blend of metallic hardcore and 90s grunge elements on Quality Control HQ. Into the Furnace sees the band explore powerful atmospherics, soaring guitar solos, mixed in with pit-worthy breakdowns. Meanwhile, vocalist Linus, a committed anti-fascist activist in Stockholm, sings about dealing with the consequences of mistakes from the past whilst exploring the Hindu idea of endless reincarnation. This is reflected in the artwork of the EP, which is inspired by the spiritual, and hellish, paintings of 15th Century Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch.

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".

Ωστόσο, το παίξιμό τους παραπέμπει στις κλασικές μπάντες των 80s, όπως STENGTE DØRER και SO MUCH HATE. Σφυριχτές κιθάρες, μπουκωμένα σολαρίσματα, εκρηκτικά hardcore ξεσπάσματα και σκληρά φωνητικά συνθέτουν την εικόνα των KNUSTE RUTER. Μαζί και αφίσα! Ακούστε τους εδώ:
LIFEWRECK st (Self Release) - 5
Powerviolence/Hardcore από Αθήνα.
LOVE POTION "intimacy" (RSR) - 5€
Early 90s danish Hardcore in the vein of Death Token style reminding of Gasmask Terror, in that they both play fast and dirty not PC hardcore that just skirts crust territory, but never quite crosses the line, and instead favors tighter playing and more memorable riffs. 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.

MAREE NOIRE - s/t (Destructure) - 5€
Here is the vinyl repress of the MAREE NOIRE demo we released last autumn. Their first recording is now available on a 7", 4 songs of implacable d-beat hardcore emergency. These guys music and words sound like a response to an oppressive and crushing world, a frank and direct blow. MAREE NOIRE is made by some (still young) punk veterans who played in an impressive number of bands and still play in bands like Better Off Dead, Bleakness and Syndrome 81 just to name a few. Expect some disillusioned vitriolic lyrics in French. It's another Destructure release recorded and mixed at the great Swan Sound studio by Guillaume Doussaud. The regular cover is a dark and realistic drawing by Barcelona based tattoo artist Sztuka Wojny but we've also made a limited "Détruire la France" cover edition that should leave no one indifferent…
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.
NEANDERTHAL "complete fighting music" (Fan Club) - 8€
Alongside Infest, Crossed Out and No Comment, Neanderthal define everything I love about power violence. At times, they had the speed of other thrashcore/grindcore bands, but they also had the ultra-slow, sludgy aggression and power in their music that ended up redefining a genre, primarily due to their bass heavy sound. Some say they are the first powerviolence band, i think they are definitely an integral part of the hardcore/powerviolence evolution. Sickest record, this e.p. truly defines the term "powerviolence" before it became a household name. Complete discography (8 Songs) release was planned on Slap A Ham Records, but it never came out, anyway bootlegers don't sleep and they took matters into their own hands. Limited to 300 copies.
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). These two songs combine a hypnotic melody and heartbeat rhythm that will not leave you alone. Dark, haunting music with empowering lyrics that feel and move through each song. This band breaks the current mold of punk and post-punk by blending both so damn perfect. In this day and age, this record needs to be listened to… and often.
P.I.G.Z. "bloody belgium" (Ugly Pop) - 8€
One of the crown jewels of worldwide first-wave punk, this Belgian band's sole release really is as good as it gets.

Unavailable since it was released in 1978, with original copies fetching up to four figures, and finally back in print through cooperation with the band. Includes booklet with interview, clippings and unseen photos!
POISON PLANET “undermine” (Third X Party) - 5€

This release contains 4 paint-stripping blasts recorded in the studio by Paul Mahern of Zero Boys fame during their 1985 U.S. tour. This edition includes their classic song "Fuk Authority" as a special bonus, so you get 5 songs total! Cover artwork by Jim Blanchard. Includes lyric sheet!
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.

The a-side of Kirjoitan Seinään ("I Write On The Wall") was an instant hit with it's angsty lyrics and is now considered one of the classic tracks of finnish punk. 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.

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.
SNOR "scandinavian heartbreaker" (Adult Crash) - 6€
Reverb-heavy hardcore with D-beat tendencies (think DESTINO FINAL) that is absolutely elevated by the playful, high-pitched vocals. The interplay between the vocalist, who sounds like the singer for a lost early '80s Spanish punk band, and the band itself, who are dishing out completely straightforward grim-sounding hardcore, it's just fantastic! Given the wordplay in the record title, it's clear that the band has a sense of humor, but rather than giving in to the joke, the record is played completely straight, which makes it a very compelling listen. The last track ("Mro Zna Noc") is probably the best, a nasty mid-tempo snarl of a song like IGGY POP meets LEBENDEN TOTEN with the singer going completely nuts over the top, wailing and shrieking. Somehow her completely disarming vocals take on an unexpected and wholly welcome edge of menace, like she'd been playing at crazy all this time but holy shit, she might actually be dangerous. Great EP!
