• Διαθέσιμο για προπαραγγελία. Αναμένεται στις 21/01/2021. Since their founding in 2015, Swedish post-punk band Viagra Boys have made a name for themselves burning up stages around the world. There's a little Iggy Pop spit and seethe, a David Yow drunken stumble, and a bite of Nick Cave's haunted bark. Add a dash of motorik groove, a pinch of post-punk grime, and a dose of no wave howl. For every gruff and gritty croak in the outfit's catalog, they come back with a pair of bongos, squared-off synths, and a squonky saxophone, with songs that deftly lay waste to society's normalization of toxic masculinity, racism, misogyny, classism, and self-obsession. Viagra Boys' Sebastian Murphy dreams about everyone hating his guts. A lot. "I kept having this recurring nightmare where my mom was crying and my friends were all pissed off at me," he recalls, almost reverently. The band's new album, Welfare Jazz, doesn't bargain with the anxiety in that defeated feeling, but rather a boiling certainty that nothing and no one is absolute. There's plenty of blame to go around, and things are just a lot more interesting when you admit that you're not always going to be nice, you're not always going to pick the right words in a fist-fight. So why not keep moving forward, swaying and strutting into the night. (YEAR0001 Records)  
  • First ever fully authorized reissue of GISM's landmark debut 'Detestation' prepared in direct cooperation with the group's mastermind Sakevi. Includes an A3 sized poster and Japanese style OBI strip. Relapse Records is proud to announce the first ever fully-authorized reissue of GISM's landmark debut LP, Detestation. Originally released in 1983, Detestation has since remained one of the most innovative, bewildering, extreme, and wildly influential albums in the punk and metal canon. To say Destestation was ahead of its time would be a huge understatement--it incorporated elements from so many genres: hardcore, punk, heavy metal, glam, thrash, industrial, and experimental. It was almost as if listeners didn’t know what to do with the record’s music but gravitated to it nonetheless as they recognized it was something unique and special. Maximum Rocknroll’s Jay Bentley’s 1984 review of Detestation made that sentiment clear, describing the record as "Churning Metal- punk, or perhaps even speed-metal, depending on where you draw the distinction. GISM are undoubtebly a heavy metal band who've been heavily influenced by hardcore, but the music is so intense and the vocals so ominous that even Im in a state of shock. These guys make VENOM sound like the KNACK, especially on side 1." *This product is designed to be a replica of the original LP released in 1983. Any spelling or design errors are consistent with how the record was originally presented* (Relapse Records)

  • By the time Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen released their second full-length, back in 1986, they had already progressed from the hardcore frenzy that was showcased in the debut EP and self titled LP, moving toward the more tempered alternative rock influence that continued throughout their eleven year career, (and all four of their albums are great in their individual way. No such thing as a bad Die Kreuzen record). October File is like the inbetween album: still essentially a hardcore record, with Dan Kubinski’s vocals mostly remaining in his signature psycho-screamer style, but overall with a less manic tempo, incorporating new musical technique and complexity. Mellow, even, in places. (Touch And Go Records)
  • Throughout the 80s and into the 90s, Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen challenged audiences by pushing the boundaries of what a hardcore band could do, experimenting with sounds far removed from the constraints of the genre. The band broke up in 1992, leaving behind four full lengths, a slew of singles and compilation appearances and an incredible amount of influence. For the remainder of the decade, its members went on to pursue other projects, both musical and otherwise. Meanwhile, the band’s legendary status began to quietly grow amongst musicians and music fans alike. Two classic LP on one CD. 1 - 14 October File, LP (1986) recorded at Multi-Track Studios, Detroit, October, '85. 15 - 34 Die Kreuzen, LP (1984) (Touch And Go Records)
  • The album features 13 brand new tracks whilst maintaining their trademark fast and grooving melodic hardcore style. Though sounding modern, this record could be described as timeless. Cindy de- scribes the writing process the following: “When we were writing, we didn't care if the songs would have a recognizable 'All For Nothing'-feel to them. That meant we were free to write whatever we enjoyed. You can definitely hear it's an ALL FOR NOTHING album but you will be able to find some unexpected twists on the record due to this approach. The lyrics are first and foremost empowering to ourselves. You know that powerful and uplifting feeling a song can give you when you're in a dark spot. Giving you the energy to keep on going with a genuine smile on your face – that's what the songs on this album are to us.” (Redfield Records)
  • On February 16, Touché Amoré played their 1000th show at The Regent Theater in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles to celebrate their 10-year anniversary as a band. The recording of the sold out show is available now as a live album entitled 10 Years / 1000 Shows - Live at The Regent Theater. 10 Years / 1000 Shows Live at The Regent Theater features 27 live recorded tracks that were mixed by Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. In late 2016 Touché Amoré released their fourth studio album, Stage Four. The album Stage Four graced many “Best of 2016” lists including A.V. Club’s “20 Best Albums of 2016” list, Stereogum’s “50 Best Albums Of 2016” list, one of the year’s best L.A. albums by L.A. Weekly, and one of the 20 best emo/punk albums of 2016 by Brooklyn Vegan. In addition, Apple Music ranked the Stage Four single “Palm Dreams” among the Best Rock Tracks and Best Hard Rock Songs of 2016. (Epitaph Records)
  • Bad Religion's Christmas album, Christmas Songs, is available now. Who better to help you celebrate that most wonderful time of the year than holiday favorites Bad Religion? Bad Religion have threatened to record an album of seasonal classics for years, and now they’ve gone and done it, tackling eight chestnuts in their classic punk rock style. From “White Christmas” with its nod to pioneers The Ramones, to the glorious choirboy intro to “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” Christmas Songs is the record you need to get your holiday household’s toes tapping. Nothing says Christmas like Bad Religion. (Epitaph Records)
  • The Great Dismal, NOTHING's new full-length album explores existentialist themes of isolation, extinction, and human behavior in the face of 2020’s vast wasteland. Closing in on the band’s ten-year mark, frontman Domenic Palermo finds himself stringing together songs of misanthropic tales of Philadelphia with a refined and refreshed take on NOTHING's classic sound. “The Great Dismal refers to a swamp, a brilliant natural trap where survival is custom fit to its inhabitants,” Palermo states. “The nature of its beautiful, but taxing environment and harsh conditions can’t ever really be shaken or forgotten too easily.” The ever progressive NOTHING keep true to their chaotic outlook on life, keeping a keen eye to avoid repetition. With a radical cast of talented contributors such as harpist Mary Lattimore, classical musician Shelley Weiss, and singer/songwriter/producer Alex G., The Great Dismal showcases yet another essential side of the band’s trademark American Post-Shoegaze. (Relapse Records)
  • ‘Pandemonium’ – originally released in 1984 and partially recorded inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, this is KJ’s biggest-selling album to date. The Re-issued double LP version – featuring new cover artwork from designer Mike Coles – stays true to the original track-listing, with both of the celebrated Cybersank Re-mixes for ‘Pandemonium’ & ‘Millennium’ included. (Spinefarm Records)  
  • The debut and best album from Killing Joke from 1980. It is a dark, obsessive and dangerous album. The band backed its occult-inspired, apocalyptic message with tribal drums, rubber funk bass...and droning guitars. Years later it still sounds inspirational and deranged. ‘Killing Joke’ – the classic debut album featuring such key tracks as ‘Requiem’, ‘Wardance’ & ‘The Wait’ (covered by Metallica in 1987). The gatefold artwork has been lovingly recreated by original designer Mike Coles, the sole addition being a striking silver pantone on the sleeve. (Spinefarm Records)    
  • BIG BLACK | bulldozer | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    Originally released in 1983 in limited edition galvanized metal album jackets on Fever Records and re-released on Touch And Go Records in 1992. Recently remastered by Steve Albini and Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering. Includes coupon for an MP3 download of the album and a 24" x 36" poster insert. (Touch And Go Records)
  • BIG BLACK | headache | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    Remastered By Steve Albini And Bob Weston At Chicago Mastering. Headache is the 1987 EP by Big Black. A noisier affair than Atomizer, the four-song Headache EP was accompanied by a band-written sticker warning that it's not as good as the preceding LP. However Ready Men and Grinder are satisfyingly ornery, and the noise-fest of My Disco isn't far behind.
    12" - With Download. (Touch And Go Records)
  • BIG BLACK | pig pile | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    Recorded live in london in 1987, during the last big black tour, 'pig pile' opens in the band's typically charming manner with bassist dave riley announcing "this song is called 'dingy little back alley of a country'," before the band launches into a punishing 46-minute set. the concert includes material from the band's first ep, 'lungs', all the way up through 1987s 'songs about fucking'. the band's confrontational live sound emphasizes crackling, extremely harsh guitar and very brittle drums. in true punk rock style, the treble has been turned up as far as possible. 'cables' - about slaughterhouses and 'jordan, minnesota' - about a pedophilia scandal-both appear in radically sped-up versions. 'kerosene' is introduced as "a song jerry lee lewis wrote before he killed one of his wives," and steve albini's vocals are nearly buried beneath heaped shards of guitar shrapnel in 'steelworker.' while there is no substitute for actually living through the big black live experience, 'pig pile' - both on record and in its video form-documents one of the relatively few instances in history when music was actually dangerous. (Touch And Go Records)
  • BIG BLACK | lungs | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    Lungs is the first EP by American post-hardcore band Big Black. It was released on December 1982 on Ruthless Records and was reissued in 1992 on Touch and Go Records. A 19-year-old Steve Albini played nearly every instrument on Lungs, with "sax bleats" by Albini's college friend John Bohnen and drums being handled by "Roland," a drum machine that was credited as a member of the band. The EP was used to recruit the other members of Big Black. Lungs was recorded on a TEAC 3340 loaned to Albini in exchange for a case of beer. The original EP came with an array of objects, including loaded squirt guns, bloody pieces of paper (one of Albini's friends suffered from a nosebleed), dollar bills, condoms, concert tickets, Bruce Lee trading cards, pictures of old people and firecrackers. Things like fishhooks and razorblades were discounted, fearing lawsuits. (Touch And Go Records)

  • The midwest surfers 1964 debut album of their very best tracks. The ostentatiously self-proclaimed “Surfin’ sound of the mid-west” the Trashmen shot back into public consciousness when the single Surfin’ Bird narrowly missed the number one slot in the UK singles chart in 2010 after a massively successful online movement which arose from the use of the song in an episode of the popular cartoon Family Guy. Surfin’ Bird has also been recorded by numerous artists including the Ramones, The Cramps and the thrash metal band Sodom as well as being used in movies and television shows including Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. Surfin’ Bird- The Very Best of the Trashmen also proves that they were more than a one-hit novelty act, as it features an ace cover of Dick Dale’s Misirlou, made famous by Quentin Tarantino’s classic cult movie Pulp Fiction, a selection of well-executed surf instrumentals, slightly surf-inflected covers of It’s So Easy and Money, and some specially commissioned surf and hot-rod songs.

  • The 40th anniversary reissue of Motörhead’s seminal first album. Pressed on white vinyl with an embossed silver Motörhead logo on the cover, just like the original release, plus a fully illustrated inner bag. (Chiswick Records)
  • DEATH's legendary 1987 debut Scream Bloody Gore is more than just an untouchable album - upon its release, it was positively genre-creating. Scream Bloody Gore founded the quintessential death metal sound, with more tormented riffs, screams, and leads than the world had ever imagined, and established Chuck Schuldiner's inimitable phrasing and songwriting style as the most singular voice in the burgeoning genre. Today, the album is viewed unanimously as one of the all-time most important cornerstones of death metal. As the final chapter in Relapse's comprehensive DEATH reissue series, Scream Bloody Gore will now receive the deluxe reissue treatment on a wide variety of formats including 2CD, Limited Edition 3CD, LP, Deluxe 2xLP Boxset, and cassette versions. Like the preceding DEATH reissues, the deluxe reissue of Scream Bloody Gore has been meticulously remastered from the original tapes by Alan Douches (Death, Mastodon, Nile) and includes a plethora of bonus content, including previously unreleased recordings and rehearsal demos, super-expanded packaging, and brand-new extensive liner notes from former DEATH drummer / Autopsy founder Chris Reifert, Sepultura's Max Cavalera, and original Scream Bloody Gore producer Randy Burns. (Relapse Records)
  • 2018 repress. Originally released in 1998. Gatefold double LP with a CD copy of the album. "The first solo album released by the former frontman of Mano Negra, Clandestino is an enchanting trip through Latin-flavored worldbeat rock, reliant on a potpourri of musical styles from traditional Latin and salsa to dub to rock 'n' roll to French pop to experimental rock to techno... Just about every track has odd sampled bits from what sound like pirate radio-station broadcasts (a possible link to the title). There are so many great ideas on this record that it's difficult to digest in one listen, but multiple plays reveal the great depth of Manu Chao's artistry." (Because Music/Radio Bemba)
  • CHANGE | closer still | LP

    17.00 incl. tax
    It’s time to grow towards the sun again. It’s time for Change. Closer Still is the debut LP from Change, the Pacific Northwest Straight Edge band made up of Aram Arslanian, Chris Williams, Jeff Caffey, Mike Jurek and Matt Bertell. The record is 13 songs of urgent hardcore influenced by Youth of Today, Uniform Choice, INSTED, Sportswear, Turning Point and Embrace. However, the song writing pulls inspiration from across genres keeping the record from painting itself in a corner musically. Lyrically, Closer Still was written over a year and at its core is about coping with loss, anxiety and depression and trying to make the changes needed to find a better path. The songs focus on growth, both personal and social, and encourage embracing who we are while also working on becoming the best version of ourselves. Written and recorded by Aram Arslanian, Dave Mitchell, Carl McBeath and Alex Schollen, the LP was tracked and mixed by Jesse Gander at Rain City Records, with lead vocals recorded Avrinder Dhillon at Ziyen Studios and mastering by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. The record features art by Eric Himle and the packaging was designed by Evan Wivell with help from Jon A Gaasland. Closer Still will be released on LP through REACT! Records in North America and by Refuse Records in Europe, and on cassette by Life.Liar.Regret Records in Australia. (Refuse Records/2020)
  • After several years in the shadows, CONQUEST FOR DEATH offer their first full length slab since 2013’s Many Nations, One Underground. Breaking from their routine of haste and geographical separation, A Maelstrom Of Resentment and Remorse was written in Oakland over the course of several months following their East Asian tour in 2015, giving them time to fully develop and realize songs while honing sights on the short blasts of fury that have been their signature since the band was born out of an impossible idea more than a decade ago. Razor sharp guitars have a heft that we haven’t heard before from CFD, and the addition of B (SCHOLASTIC DEATH, NO STATIK) on drums has turned their thrash into a battering ram. Dating back to his time in WHN?, and ALL YOU CAN EAT before that, Devon’s words have always provoked thought, but this record shows a reflection that is not always pretty, or even hopeful…and he’s showing us our own faces in that mirror. Doses of frustration to rip the scabs off of still healing wounds, exposing our differences and our hypocrisies with lyrics decidedly more dark than the band’s previous releases, a darkness and intensity that consumes the vocal delivery. But the record is not without hope, far from it, and closes with a two minute sonic montage featuring the voices of friends from all over the world celebrating the power of DIY hardcore in more than fifteen languages. Grit your teeth if you need to, fight through the frustration, because there’s a reason we are still here. (Refuse Records)
  • Step Forward. Umeå Hardcore Originals. In 1989 there were no such things as Umeå Hardcore. There was no scene and hardly any punk bands. A bunch of friends got together under the moniker of Step Forward to play fast and wild Hardcore. This is the first proper Straight Edge band of Sweden - started a couple of years after some members of legendary Svart Parad brought it to Scandinavia. They were in many ways the origins of the scene that in the 90’s exploded with bands like Refused, Abhinanda, The Doughnuts, Final Exit and Umeå Hardcore became a thing outside of Sweden. In their short lifespan between 89-91 they recorded two demos, put on numerous shows and did a fanzine called Umeå Hardcore Zine. For the first time ever the 2 demos are being released on vinyl. Remastered and with liner notes from Dennis Lyxzen and a bunch of unseen photos. The band was only around for a fraction of time but they had a huge impact on the small world surrounding them and Dennis of course went on to form REFUSED right after the break up. Members of STEP FORWARD were also involved in bands like FINAL EXIT, INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY, E.T.A., REGULATIONS, AC4 or INVSN in next three decades! If you are into fast Hardcore done by a bunch of alienated teens from the north of Sweden you need to check out this record.

  • Following the release of their debut "Alive" 7?, Protein didn?t just sit and wait for things to happen. Instead, they packed their EP, tapes, and some merch and traveled to the north, east and west of Europe. In the meantime, they appeared on the "Youth Crew 2018" compilation 7". Meeting enthusiastic feedback for both their 7? and their live shows, in a short time Protein became one of the more recognizable SEHC bands coming from Eastern/Central Europe. The demand for the next dose of nutritional protein has definitely increased! These six new songs, available on the new seven-inch release, send a clear message that Protein is a talented, smart and energetic band, ready to show their skills to the world beyond their local scene. These new songs deliver a good dose of classic hardcore influence but they?re also far from sticking to standards and a generic sound. Everything here sounds fresh, vital and authentic. Lyrically they advocate keeping our heads up while dealing with darker times and they focus on us looking carefully at one other. These tracks were recorded in Czerpak and Waiting Room Studios, with mixing and mastering done by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios. Cover by Wojciech Herman. Guest vocals by Walerka.
