The roots of LA Metal! This is the ultimate collection of early HIRAX recordings on LP including their cult Demo 1984 in the best quality ever, unreleased tracks from the same era and the rare LA
KAOS Demo 1983 for the first time on vinyl! Instead of the savage thrashin' assault met on albums such as "Raging violence", these early HIRAX recordings are a pure incarnation of denim smelling
and fast Heavy Metal, at times showing a NWOBHM influence. Every song is a riff-fest from beginning to end topped with fierce guitar solos and the absolutely amazing vocals of Katon. The 4 track
Demo 1984 has been ripped and remastered from the best source around, then you'll find 3 unreleased songs 1983-84 ("To be free", "The saviour", "War hero") and the very hard to find LA KAOS
(pre-Hirax) demotape ripped straight from Katon's personal copy! And to complete the FOAD quality treatment, you'll also find a booklet including liner notes, lyrics, rare photos, 'zine excerpts
Katon W. De Pena about this release: "You hold in your hand something very special. This record / album is HIRAX's first time in the recording studio. This release also includes music from a pre-HIRAX era. We hope to give the listeners high quality with never before seen photos, lyrics, flyers, reviews, memorabilia, etc. We have to go back in time, the year was 1983, getting ready to turn over to 1984.. (I was 20 years old).." (continued on the LP booklet!)
Black vinyl version ltd. to 350 copies. Gatefold sleeve with 2 booklets!
NASTY SAVAGE's classic Demotape "Wage of mayhem" (1984) for the first time on vinyl spiced up with a lethal selection of rare and unreleased bonus tracks from the early days... NASTY SAVAGE were the undisputed pioneers of Florida's Metal scene, arguments can be made that the early 90's Tampa area Death Metal explosion was a direct result of Nasty Savage, who mixed a more nihilistic view, lyrically and through onstage horror imagery, than the Bay Area. Their debut demotape and the additional early tracks collected here show the band on a more Power Metal oriented approach (at times even leaning to NWOBHM areas) than the incendiary Thrash artillery of some subsequent works, but the amount of memorable riffs, a dark evil mood with a few psychedelic elements and the charismatic vocals of their distinctive frontman Ronnie Savage, clearly show the fact that even at their inception they were surprisingly mature and way ahead for their times. The insane, impressive riffing and Ronnie’s high-pitched vocals coin a totally unique sound. Unique, but you can tell some of the influences: Mercyful Fate, Slayer, the heavier NWOBHM bands generally. “Wage of Mayhem” is without the slightest doubt one of the greatest and most influential Metal demo tapes of the 80's. Remastered from pristine sources taken from the band's personal archives. Gatefold sleeve + 24 page booklet full of rare photos, flyers, zine interviews and memorabilia. SPECIAL BONUS: a replica of the original "WAGE OF MAYHEM vol. 1" fanzine!!!
DIVE IN A BLOODY PIT OF UNCHAINED METAL SAVAGERY!!
The next milestone !! The classic of German hardcore / punk history was officially re-released for the first time. The first inferno longplayer "Tod & Wahnsinn" was in the eighties "the most important " hardcore record in Germany !!!! MÃŒlleimer Records from germany put aout these milestone of the German punk / hardcore History The LP was recorded at the end of 83 in the Berlin Music Lab under the direction of Harris Johns. 20 songs with a speed and brutality at that time, unbelievable !!! these recordings includes also the track "Ram It Up", years later then the N.Y.C. Thrash metalers of S.O.D. covering the track. For the cover Artwork the band find an artist called Pushead who was later also active for Metallica. With this LP Inferno then actually became world famous, they are recording material for various samplers (including Cleanse The Bacteria, Welcome To 1984, Ultra Hardcore Power and others) also made sure the inferno got a very high priority in the scene. Later on the LP was re releasesed on the Brazilian label called Woodstock Discos without any permission of the band, they didn't know that MÃŒlleimer records give a licence to the label. Later a bootleg version Tod & Wahnsinn LP came out, in a very bad presentation without any info. The re-release has now been redesigned down to the smallest detail after Archie's remastering, and the booklet was put together the way it was originally planned for release. Awesome work!!!!
Apparatus have been playing total d-beat raw punk mangel since 2000! Think classic Scandinavian style, a rawer version of Anti Cimex, Shitlickers, Mob 47 etc!

100,000 TONNEN KRUPPSTAHL prepare to bury listeners' ears in crumbling valve warmth on their third full length 'Teeth Fletcher'. One enormous track in four parts, the German guitar/drums duo build a twisted tone shrine from doom and noise components. Strong references can be found amongst the foundation to groups like The Melvins and Bongripper, with layers of supremely fuzz drenched guitar churning above a core of dynamic, rolling drums that refuse to sit still. This is Doom with drive.GATEFOLD COVER
Not many words needed to introduce SIEGE: they're the undisputed generators of all hyper-speed Hardcore, Grindcore and blasting fast Thrash and have
massively influenced a world of maniacs bringing musical extremities to the most outraegous boundaries, the first most obvious example being Napalm Death that mentioned them as an inspiration

Tucked away in Okinawa Japan, for almost a decade Sow Threat has been pumping out some of the most rambunctious and explosive crustcore in the game. I was an instant fan based on the first demo tape, with their spirited execution of "crustcore" that's firmly rooted in the classics (Extreme Noise Terror, Doom, Sore Throat, Napalm Death) without devolving into a noise-not-music crasher crust spectacle. And it's with great joy that we can put their incredible debut album onto vinyl, remastered and with new art/layout than the CD version on Straight Up Records

(Tacoma Washington’s SIDETRACKED has been up and down the coasts, playing fests, putting out dozens of releases, and being an amazing fast hardcore band for almost twenty years and you know the one thing that they are missing? A full length record. From the same label that brought you full lengths from bands like XBRAINIAX and HUMMINGBIRD OF DEATH that had been so fast they have only graced records from 5”s to 7”s before then, we present to you the first full length by fast hardcore titans SIDETRACKED. With angular hooks, false hits, starts and stops, this is pure fastcore perfection. The weirdest thing is you’ll want to hear more after you listen to the twenty-four tracks carved into the vinyl on this one. Poised to be one of the most important fastcore releases in 2019, don’t sleep on Hollowed Out.
It was only a
matter of time travel before this became inevitable. Coincidences of space-time anomalies and political outrage have led to a split LP between these two one man bands created by the same person.
On this release, the two bands have opposite approaches to extreme music - progressive and regressive.
If PSUDOKU's previous album “Deep Space Psudokument” had a third side, this would be it. On Report From the 10th Dimension, futuristic 70s progressive grind is once again consolidated with surf rock and electronic classical. Prepare for raging interstellar speed and dense musical information overload. For fans of NETJAJEV SOCIETY SYSTEM, O.L.D., BAL-SAGOTH and MAGMA.
The PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI side is entitled Demo 2018 and is the first PS demo since 2007. This is 11 crude, straightforward and fast hc/grind/noise tunes partially recorded on cassette. For fans of SIEGE, RUPTURE, DENAK and ULCERRHOEA.
* Bloody Phoenix (US) - a funeral speech of face melting mighty grindcore with Jerry Flores (ex EXCRUCIATING TERROR)
* Lycanthrophy (Cz) - female//male fronted legendary ultra extreme D.I.Y. hardcore violence, now with Otto (NEEDFUL THINGS) on bass-guitar.
* Skunk (Can) - a raw crust/mincecore band from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, formed in 2008 and practicing in the most squalid jam space during essential crust reeking activities. Four of winnipeg's least hygenic crust enthusiasts bring blasts of skunkcrust fury. Ex ARCHAGATHUS, VIOLENT GORGE & SKELETON.
* Disturbance Project (Sp) - an insanely good spanish old-school grindcore features old faces from DENAK
A blistering 5 song follow up to their self-titled debut. Blurring returns with a focused and razor sharp offering that will leave all in their beer soaked wake. These extreme metal veterans deliver an aural assault that will challenge the listener with its intense brutality along with its melodic beauty. It truly will "FUCKIN' BASH YOU IN THE FACE."
PARANOID returns with their 2nd album "heavy mental fuck-up". The new album is rawer, darker and have a more metallic sound than on their hyped and distorted debut "satyagraha", on Southern Lord Records. A clearer recording gives more space to the sheer brutality that is PARANOID. The ex-treme sides get even more extreme as the band crank it up with chainsaw solos. Adding more metal to their influences that range from Swedish d-beat, raw punk to Japanese hardcore set the band on the same path as early '80s extreme metal band as CELTIC FROST or POSSESSED. Uncompro-mising and destructive. With "heavy mental fuck-up", PARANOID show that they have been one of the best kept hellish rock 'n' roll metal-punk bands from the underground scene - until now!
From the UK's blackened core (aka Leicester) comes Nothing Clean, whose members have spent time in such excellent outfits as Mangle, Hangover Heartattack, Diet Pills and Meatpacker. After a number of split EPs this is their first album proper, with some songs making a reappearance alongside brand new ragers. For a minimal outlay you get maximum bang for your buck with about forty songs in 20 minutes. Powerviolence is the word, bordering on grindcore at times. This is legitimately vicious, intense stuff, allowing itself little room for variation but instantly establishing this quartet as one of the Shittish Isles' finest, fastest hardcore combos. Bordering on grindcore for sure, Nothing Clean are honouring the spirit of the most insanely compact West Coast powerviolence bands of the mid-90s: Spazz and Lack Of Interest, particularly.
Two good things have come from Stoughton, Wisconsin: the coffee break and S.F.N.. After mysteriously dissolving in the last few years, they still seem to pop up every now and then with a new release. S.F.N. moves like a glacier; slow, cold and powerful. S.F.N. submit their 1st and only studio recording of "terminal sedation". Chicago’s most elusive grindcore band has finally returned with 6 songs that barely crack the 5min. mark. The sonic assault is over almost as quickly as it begins but not before it absolutely pummels you into dust and tries to snort you like an eight ball of grindcore cocaine.
In the vein of Fall of Efrafa; Geranium teams up with Link
to do this piece of plastic together. And what a split! Crustcore in an awesome way.
Link from Belgium creates melancholic atmospheres above Heavy tunes and dark lyrics. Their brooding brand of Hardcore Neocrust runs deep pulling a compounding sound of heaviness. Although it’s hard to put a label on the music, they just call it "Dark Crust".
An absolutely over the top recording comprising twelve tracks of punishing hardcore with a huge wall-of-noize production adding to their faultless song writing. As noisy as the album is, all the songs are hits and hard to forget. 'The Total Arse', 'Tomorrow' and 'Consuming Shit and Mind Pollution' are what the new generation of noize-not-music punk lack, memorable anthems. Housed in a 350 gsm regular sleeve and without alterations to the art or sound from the original, this reissue tries to bring an undoubtedly classic of our generation back to life.
PRIMAL RITE is the shot in the arm the hardcore and metal scenes need. With 7"s already on Revelation Records, Grave Mistake and Warthog Speak Records, the band is unleashing their debut full-length. 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.
(Fuck On The
Beach,If you don't know what to expect here I can't really help, this is brutal, lightspeed clattering blasts, razorwire treble drenched guitar and whirling layered screaming at it's finest.
Plenty of ear splitting distortion, feedback, mics peaking and everything way too loud in the best way. This is fun loving fastcore powervioelce from Japan which I'm pretty sure even has a
'clap-track' on the self titled outro track. Fucking excelent. This side of the split is primarily hyper fast d-beats with the odd blast thrown in, so is sonically the inverse of the Terlarang
side. For fants of Japanese style everything faster and louder style grindviolence.
Terlarang,Lo-fi to the point of incomprehensibility this side of the split goes even further down the slopes of treble-valley than Fuck On The Beach, sounding like the guitars are physically tearing the speaker cones from the amp and the rest of the band are trying frantically to hold them back in. Everything here is fast, no slow at all on this side. Maybe one or two slightly slower than lightspeed d-beat smashers floating about in there but this is really all about the pace. The fast as fuck and don't care nature is epitomised by the cats on the split cover and the last track basically sounding like black metal but being called 'Stop The Hate' in what seems to be a conscious rejection of the bullshit ideals of traditional NSBM. Nice.
Chicago sludge legends DISROTTED return for another
punishing, miserable round of noisey chaos, this time partnering up with fellow-Windy City masters of hatred LEDGE, who make their vinyl debut on this 20min. split. Both bands spew out 1 track of
pure malice using very different approaches, making for an interesting and unique showcase of doom. Members of SICK/TIRED, KUNGFU RICK, WEEKEND NACHOS.
We have now entered the final form of Exit Hippies' evolution. Their transformation, from crust to dance, is complete. Rejoice, get jiggy with it, or just leave the hall.
Once again time to tear down some walls! Three years after the first attack, here comes powerhouse #2: Nine gun hits from DERBE LEBOWSKI out of Berlin City! In almost 15 minutes somewhere between Hardcore, Powerviolence and Fastcore an ugly three headed punkbastard is born in Moloch. In the circle of the family out of aunts and uncles of HENRY FONDA, HATEHUG and FEMME KRAWALL, it should be clear that the celebration of the day of liberation is more important than a dusky birthday party. Stop And Go Hardcore for people with low attention threshold and pulsating throat line. Hölli (echos-oratos.net) is once again responsible for the outstanding artwork on thick Inside-Out cardboard.
(The second full length of death/doom filth from this Chicago trio. “A megalith of churning black filth spews oblivion that slowly creeps into the minds of men, breathing the stench of hopeless dread from an ancient crumbling death factory. Unspeakable atrocities cascading down amidst the carrion haze of blank humanity forever drowning in a murky chasm. Ceaseless and unbound.
Lotus Fucker is a four piece band from Washington DC/Baltimore Maryland who formed in 2010. Lotus Fucker play a raw, ugly, and visceral style of noise damaged hardcore/punk influenced by bands such as Gauze, Terveet Kadet, Wretched, LipCream, and Confuse. Forever My Fighting Spirit is the band's debut LP which was released via Katorga Works, SPHC, and RSR records on December 3rd 2012. Overall, these ten songs are ugly, abrasive, and brutal as fuck. Overall, Lotus Fucker is a must listen for fans of Hoax, Aerosols, Pollution, and Grids. Another killer release by Katorga Works / RSR / SPHC, heavy cardboard cover incl OBI.
