Hailing from the mean streets of Milwaukee Wisconsin comes LIFES. LIFES is a fast paced hardcore band with members of GET RAD and PARTY BY THE SLICE. Here is the demo a total of 8 ripping songs that lasts no longer then 9 minutes for low/deep vocals with a pissed off angry hint to the voice. With song titles like “New Flag” and “Party by the Lifes” what are they really trying to say here? Follow the links to like them and download there demo for FREE. (XbezerkerX)
Here is a brand new release on ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES. With them putting this album out your thinking man this will be awesome Jello doesn’t put out crap records correct? Well for the most part you’re right. Very low-fi gritty fast spaztastic punk rock on this record. Sometimes you will wish the recording wasn’t so shitty ut that adds to the record. At first when this arrived and I read the sticker on the cover I got super excited. “In 1965, this former Motown backing band was left for dead in the swamps of Baton Rouge”. With that being on the cover I thought it would be some sweet ass soul/blues type music. But nope I was sadly surprised. There is a total of 13 songs 10 of them which are there own and 2 covers. “Nervous Breakdown” and “Bad Man”. Other then that this is something I could see a smaller record label putting out, but hey if a bigger DIY label wants to do hell yea. Plus check out this creepy cover looks like something out of Donnie Darko. Check it out for yourself (XbezerkerX)

One of the most prominent and important anarcho-punk bands play Minneapolis for the first time in 32 years!
WAR//PLAGUE’s “Primal” 7″ is finally out! After a long delay at the pressing plant we finally have this fine slab of wax in our hands. This marks the kick off of the second half of the PE Limited Edition Singles Series (starting with record #7). If you ordered the subscription I’m pleased to announce that your copies will go out in the mail tomorrow. You can also order individual copies as well.
WAR//PLAGUE – Primal is potentially the best release these Minneapolis punks have yet to offer! The driving force behind this release is laden with mad as fuck thrash punk. These tracks are an all out assault on the shallow society we live in. This is “Primal”…war cries to decimate corporate sponsorship in the DIY punk underground, and to curse the thrones of those who rule. WAR//PLAGUE carry the torch for what really matters in this desolate world of superficial living and material gain. The scathing and metallic riffs, the onslaught of drums and the scorching vocals makes this a serious addition to their previous releases. This is a clear and concise release with a message to raise the flag high and to bestow nothing but rage against the masses that lie, cheat and kill.

Well here is a new release from ASAIN MAN RECORDS featuring the two members of the BIRTHDAY SUITS, Paddy from DILLINGER 4 and ASIAN MAN himself MIKE PARK. Here we have 8 tracks of spastic and harsh punk kind of like a garage sort of punk. Each song barely a minute long except one which is exactly a minute long other then that what can I really say about this power house group all individually are good at there own bands. Maybe this was just a little fun random thing to do but they should stick to what they know best and that is there original bands. Not a band collectible record just to own if there is nothing else to buy at the record store or online. (XbezerkerX)
Thrash for all you thrashers. This 3 piece thrash band hail from Indy and play……wait for it……thrash metal. Not an all around band cassette tape again by REALITY IS A CULT, this label just keeps putting out little gems one at a time. This cassette has a total of 8 song, in the vein of IN DEFENCE with there party and humorous lyrical content. I’ve had the advantage of booking these guys when they came to Minneapolis the second time and there live show isn’t half bad, so I recommend checking this cassette out and if they are coming to your town make sure to check them out. Fart noises into a microphone=epic, and singing about a Big Mac is sweet. Also follow the links to listen and download this cassette. One final thought PIZZAFACE. (XbezerkerX)
Another nice slab of wax per REALITY IS A CULT this 7 inch is a little slice of heaven in a 7 inch sleeve. PARASITIC TWINS hail from Indy playing fast and catchy punk/hardcore, more on the punk side of things very catchy guitar and vocals on “Greedy Mitts” “Lily White” is another amazing track with powerful vocals and screeching guitar. Time to flip this over to the B-Side. The B-side offers up two more tracks with tuning the guitar as the intro to “Blowhard” is kind of weird but artists are weird right? But the lyrics are on point for this song a sarcastic snotty anthem to how most of us really feel. It appears that each side was recorded 5 months apart from each other and with that the B-Side sounds like a better recording to me but that’s my opinion check out this release for yourself. Plus I got a free mini zine with this release maybe if you order one you might be as lucky as I was. (XbezerkerX)
