• Being bored back in the 70’s, could turn you into a punk rock hero. Or not? Anyway, after six series of well documented british punk we come to the seventh volume. Safety pins on and down the road then. First we’ve got The Singles with their single “Adolf Hitler/Mercy“, a nice starter of urban british punk. In The Gym happily follow to kick your heads off and then Katz with a satisfying combo of six songs. Being a band from Portishead, does not necessarily means that you’ll be named Portishead, to the contary Chaos UK is fine. The hardcore veterans offer their single “Summer of Hate/I Wanna Be Left Alone” in the name of alive and pacey punk. Then The Hobbs arrive for a couple of rounds at the local but only when The What and The Vendettas are in town. The compilation closes with Skidmarx, a nervous quartet from the east, and the straight punk by North Londoners System X. Rather than searching around for lost and forgotten singles of this particular bristish punk period, the Bored Teenagers series puts a disordered era in order and a nostalgic smile in your face.

  • Sorry State is pleased to release Out Cold’s Living Is Killing Me, the band’s final statement in their legacy of pure, unadulterated hardcore punk. For the uninitiated, Out Cold is hardcore’s greatest cult band. They flew under the radar for most of their 20-year run, but for those who understand the band’s importance, Out Cold were a truth, and a benchmark for quality. During the tail-end of the 80s, there wasn’t much activity in the world of fast and raging American hardcore. Out Cold was the big exception. Out Cold’s aggression was unwavering, presaging the 80s American Hardcore obsession that flooded the US in the mid-00’s. Formed in 1989 in the town of Dracut, MA, about 30 miles northwest of Boston, Out Cold would stay true to their formula for tried-and-true 80s-style hardcore until they disbanded in 2010. Releasing a slew of records throughout their career, Out Cold’s discography became extensive, each record just as vicious as the one before it. They are hardcore’s most reliable band. For their genre, Out Cold personifies consistency in the same way the Ramones or Motörhead did. You always know what to expect with an Out Cold record: amazing drumming with in-the-pocket rhythmic intensity; urgent, catchy, and tasteful songwriting; dark, misanthropic lyrics; and huge, memorable vocal hooks. While they’ve undergone several lineup changes, Out Cold's foundation has always been drummer John Evicci and guitarist/vocalist Mark Sheehan. Following 2005’s Goodbye Cruel World, John and Mark recorded drum and guitar tracks for two full-lengths worth of material before Mark’s untimely and unfortunate passing in 2010. Rather than letting these new songs fall by the wayside, the band rescued the session from the abyss with Kevin Mertens, Out Cold’s original frontman, coming in to complete the tracks. Half of these songs became 2013’s A Heated Display, the remaining half comprising Living Is Killing Me. After a long wait, we finally get to enjoy a proper send-off for these legends. Having been almost 15 years since the band recorded the basic tracks, Living Is Killing Me bridges two eras of hardcore punk. They conceived the songs during the height of US hardcore’s resurgence, but in 2019 the tracks have a fresh energy. Kevin sounds as ferocious and powerful as he did on the first Out Cold LP, like someone released him from a block of ice to scream once again. The performances are militaristically tight and powerful: 14 bursts of pure fury. All good things must end, but Living Is Killing Me reminds us why Out Cold is one of the best bands ever to play hardcore punk. Released May 17, 2019 on vinyl on Sorry State Records.

  • FAITH / VOID | split | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    This record is nothing short of amazing, teaming 2 of the best hardcore bands from the early Washington DC scene. VOID is unlike anything else before or after - totally spastic and disjointed hardcore-punk that often seems like it's about to fall apart into noisy chaos only to go blasting back into anthemnic hardcore. On the FAITH side you get a similarly diverse, if more standard set of DC hardcore. These guys are so underappreciated it's sad. MINOR THREA's influence is still obvious but FAITH definately had their own thing going on. Vinyl was re-mastered and re-cut and includes a digital download card. (Dischord Records)

    Primal Rite is the shot in the arm the hardcore and metal scenes need. With 7"s already on Revelation Records, Grave Mistake Records, and Warthog Speak Records, plus a cassette on Pop Wig Records, the band is unleashing their debut full-length with Revelation this January. Guitars scream and solo, mixing the speed and chaos of Japanese hardcore, the crunch of Cleveland hardcore, the riffing and solos of thrash metal, and the pure, crushing power of the Floridian death-metal scene of the '90s.

  • ALPINIST is a dark hardcore four-piece from Münster, Germany. lichtlaerm/minus.mensch” is crushing yet beautiful – heavy and atmospheric crust- and post-hardcore, bringing to mind the likes of FROM ASHES RISE, FALL OF EFRAFA, early ENFY etc.. They’re definitely an apocalyptic journey of sound. MASAKARI got finally a new record! Close your eyes and imagine that His Hero is Gone and Amebix got together and had a child… got it? Ok, now imagine that that child grows up in a dank room full of teenage angst, listening to nothing but Death Side and Disfear records until he is 21 years-old. Now open your eyes and what you have is Masakari, a crust punk band from Cleveland, Ohio. (Alerta Antifascista ‎Records / Halo Of Flies ‎Records)
  • 108 | 18.61 | LP/Color

    20.00 incl. tax
    Recorded over a frigid weekend in Boston, MA in the analog domain of Alex Garcia Rivera (Give Up The Ghost) and later mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge). From the first tension filled notes struck in "God Talk", it's apparent that a spiritual restlessness and awareness continues to writhe in the collective consciousness of 108 which is an attribute that has set them apart from the rest of the musical world since their inception. From there "18.61" pounds forth with the upmost intensity. Standout track "Crescent Moon" races at manic speed before crashing in on itself in one of 108's heaviest moments ever. Title track "18.61", a moving and brooding song that combines all of the unique musical qualities that make up 108. The gritty "Reduced" showcases new drummer Mike Justian (Trap Them, Unearth, etc.) as the new heart at the center of the 108 machine, rhythmically pushing the envelope. Though the aforementioned songs are electric in every way, it's in some of the more daring tracks that "18.61" truly starts to really shine. "Mannequins" and "Forever Is Destroyed" pick up where classics Black Flag and Rollins Band left off, taking frantic and unpredictable sonic turns that only a band like 108 could navigate. All of this makes "18.61" yet another stunning album from a band that continues to write their own destiny as one the most important and influential hardcore/punk bands in existence today. 1000 copies on opaque purple vinyl out of 2000 copies from the first pressing total.

  • "Shai Hulud have spent many years away and endured line-up changes frequent enough to give Napalm Death or Zao’s revolving door policy a run for their money. That said, if they’re going to push forward, they better come with something spectacular, and they do. Dispensing with most of the spoken-word meanderings and downplaying the melodicism of the prior release, Misanthropy Pure is faster and more frantic than any of their earlier records yet remains coherent and well proportioned. New vocalist Matt Mazzali roars his way through 11 massively dense and aggressive tracks, rarely slowing for a breather. He’s no Chad Gilbert but he brings a much-needed shot of adrenaline to the vocal department. Primary songwriter Matt Fox has outdone himself, cramming what seems like thousands of licks into mere seconds of running time but never shying away from the requisite amount of repetition necessary to make an album this intricate come together. Eric Rachel’s production comes across as a tad too polished but otherwise Misanthropy Pure is a brain-rupturing return to form from a resilient and influential act. This is melodic metalcore at its finest. " By Max Deneau www.exclaim.ca Issued in a gatefold cover with lyrics and credits printed on dust sleeve. "Limited Edition" of 2000 hand numbered copies. #1615/2000. (Metal Blade Records)  
  • To be honest, I didn’t expect much if anything from this album. However, once I put it in the player, I was floored. Hail the New Pawn puts these guys right at the upper tier of hardcore/grindcore ranks. It’s a no-brainer. THE DREAM IS DEAD combine grindcore, crust-punk flavorings, and dissonant hardcore into an unrelenting, chaotic anti-establishment beast. They occupy a musical space somewhere between NAPALM DEATH and MISERY INDEX. Seriously, the band hits with every kind of extreme riff they can think of, a barrage of tempo changes, and enough vocal barks to penetrate that thick material we call the “human brain.” Vocalist Clark Giles gives it all he’s got with a great performance. And thankfully, he doesn’t sound like 1,000 other hardcore vocalists. Another strength of Hail the New Pawn lays in the feel. While the songs communicate an immediate feel of brutality and unrelenting attitude, there is also an ominous air to them. To top things off, the production work was by none other than Alex Newport (THEORY OF RUIN/ex-FUDGE TUNNEL/NAILBOMB). The production is nothing short of crystal clear, powerful, and balanced especially for the drums. The bottom line is that you need to do yourself a favor and check out one of the best albums of the year. Limited to 100 copies, Clear w/ Red Splatter. (Escape Artist Records)
  • To put it simply, Ritual is a hardcore punk band: a group of four young, passionate musicians who combine their individuality to form a statement against the mental and emotional downfalls of society and the hardcore punk scene. Two years after the release of "Wolves," Ritual has matured and teenage angst turns to adult despair and frustration. "Beneath Aging Flesh And Bone" is their most reflective and darkest material to date. Gatefold LP. Comes with printed inner sleeve including lyrics and pictures. White vinyl. (Reflections Records) https://reflections-records.bandcamp.com/album/beneath-aging-flesh-and-bone
  • New York ska-punks Left ver Crack and their British counterparts Citizen Fish band together for the split release Deadline, and really, what a perfect pairing of groups. Both are vehemently pissed off at the government, suspicious of authority, and ready to throw two middle fingers at basically anything that promotes greed or control, or tries to hold them down. And both also favor upbeat ska grooves and lively melodies to get their points across -- although the melodies are laced with such acerbic vocals, crusty hardcore attitude, and razor-sharp social commentary that the music would be better served at an urban protest rally (Jello Biafra fittingly guest rants on "Baby-Punchers") than as the catalyst to any sort of happy-go-lucky skanking. Citizen Fish's half to things is relatively more upbeat -- though both singers are equally outraged and largely unintelligible -- and excellent cuts like "Working on the Inside" and "Join the Dots" seem borderline friendly with their bouncy basslines if you disregard lyrics that, among other things, name the government as the true drug lords ("Even as you talk of a war on drugs/The name on the cheque says C.I.A"). Citizen Fish have been at this a while, but their frustrations and pleas for improvement are no less pressing. Same goes for the relatively younger Left ver Crack, whose lead rager Stza has one of the snottiest deliveries around; if you're not used to his voice, it can take some acclimation, but it's a voice with a lot of character that gets the job done effectively. Alternating like they do between scrappy ska-punk and faster hardcore-leaning complaints, these songs are also not exactly uplifting ("World War 4" gets closest -- with a chorus that's actually sung, no less -- if that's any indication of track positivity levels), but as always, there's no shortage of hot-blooded passion and sincere conviction. Left ver Crack have a twisted sense of humor that wants to push buttons (i.e., titles like "Baby-Punchers" and the Rancid poke "...And Out Comes the N-Bomb!"), but they really seem to want to spur people to think for themselves more than anything else. The bleeding urgency that both bands discharge with such directed force and street-level ferocity is truly refreshing, even if you don't always agree with their rallying cries to such extreme levels. And overall, especially considering how incensed both groups are, Deadline is surprisingly still incredibly accessible and even poppy. It's the perfect album not just for the converted, but also as an introduction for those looking to add a little anarchistic punk spice to their lives. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi (Alternative Tentacles Records)
  • Dag With Shawn was recorded on Halloween Day 1985 and features the original line-up of the band with Shawn Brown on vocals. Initially, songs from this session were to be released as a four-song 7" on Dischord, but shortly after the recording Shawn left Dag Nasty and the tape was shelved. In early 1986 the band re-recorded the entire album with new vocalist Dave Smalley and released it as Can I Say.

    This recording, taken from restored master tapes, was mastered at Chicago Mastering Service. The 12" LP features a free MP3 download. (Dischord Records)  
  • Austria’s Astpai play punk rock with a healthy dose of Kid Dynamite snarl. It’s melodic, it’s loud, and most of all, it wants to be heard. Think of all those bands in the mid-naughties who started drawing on the melodic side of hardcore and post—Make Do And Mend, Title Fight, and Hostage Calm, to name a few—bands that took to the musicianship of Hot Water Music and Fugazi but kept their feet firmly in the world of traditional songwriting. Astpai is a step once more removed from those post-hardcore roots, but it’s hard for me not to think of them as kin. True Capacity is melodic punk that wants to hit hard, to give you all its got, and have you singing along with every word. A more direct comparison for Astpai would be something like The Flatliners. They have a similar feel of heightened melodic punk, where they take from hardcore sounds but not structures. Here, there are songs with big choruses and competent arrangements delivered with an emotional range in line with what we expect from today’s melodic punk.

  • VANNA INGET | utopi | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    Malmö-based VANNA INGET is back with their 1st studio album since 2013. The band has though not been lazy but have been touring frequently and released the live album "vi tar alla minnen härifrån". Here on their 3rd studio album, the words and the lyrics are more accurately balanced, the arrangement more studied and the orchestra seems to no longer try to gain from pure strength and energy. They have learned that perseverance is at least as relevant to reaching the knockout. Avoiding VANNA INGET pulsating breathlessness is not just a challenge, but a minor impossibility. A war against one's own instincts. Vinyl includes a digital download card. (Gaphals Records) https://gaphals.bandcamp.com/album/utopi

    At the end of 1982, Ian MacKaye entered the studio to record "government issue" and, in just one day, they came up with 20 tracks, most of them issued as the "boycott stabb" album. It has since been reissued on a number of different labels and formats, but after coming across the master tapes and hearing the songs that had been left off, Dischord thought it would be cool to release the complete session on a proper full-length. The vinyl was re-cut and re-mastered in 2010 and comes with a digital download card. (Dischord Records) https://governmentissue.bandcamp.com/album/boycott-stabb-complete-session

    Following on from the reissue of the classic debut album Dance With Me in 2019, Beneath The Shadows is the second album by Long Beach punk band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty). Originally released on Alternative Tentacles in 1983, the album hasn’t been available since 2001 when it was re-issued by The Offspring’s Nitro Records. This reissue version features a hot stamped gold foil cover.
    Beneath The Shadows saw the band move even further from their hardcore punk roots, and with the addition of Greg Kuehn on keyboards they continued their progression into gothic rock territory. Although the album was critically well received It was all too much for their hardcore punk fans at the time, and after an appearance playing live in Penelope Spheeris’ 1984 film Suburbia, founding members Jack Grisham and Todd Barnes left the band and for the classic line-up it was all over until they reunited 16 years later. Remastered by Cass Irvine (Bjork, Gary Numan, The Woodentops, Afrojack). Hot-stamped gold foil cover with printed inner lyric sleeve. (Dink Records)

  • Political Vegan Straight Edge Hardcore from Sweden. It's definitely one of the highlights of the Swedish HC scene in recent years, consist past and current members of such rad bands like DAMAGE CONTROL, SET MY PATH, SMACKDOWN, ANOTHER YEAR or GERILJA. Their sound is influenced by 90's sXe hardcore bands like Trial, Unbroken, Mouthpiece or Refused, but it can also appeal for fans of such current bands like Verse or Haveheart. They're definitely on their own terms with the sound and their message of compassion and awareness. Hard-working band with impressive amount of the shows on their backs. They can ranks high among the best european hardcore acts right now! (Refuse Records)
