INDOCTRINATE hail from Austria and are a political (anti-fascist, anti-sexist, anti-authoritarian and animal friendly) DIY crust punk band who play a catchy, abrasive and diversified blend of hardcore punk and d-beat/crust. Their music also incorporates elements from grindcore, post-hardcore, doom/sludge and other sub-genres of metal.
The rather dark and at times gloomy lyrics deal with political, environmental and social matters influenced by ideas that are best described as anarchist. At the same time they are conveying hopes for the creation of a better, freer and more just world devoid of the current restraints and shackles that enslave human as well as non-human beings today.
This 7” is INDOCTRINATE’s second release after their demo tape and includes two brand new tracks from these dissenting, angry, thrashing kids. Profane Existence was proud to help out with this release along with several other fine DIY punk labels from around the globe!
We should be getting their 7″ here to the Profane warehouse early 2014. Stay tuned.
If you are looking for a DEVO type band from Japan then ULTRA BIDE is for you. Here you have a dual bass and drums on every track with some synth on it. This is there first U.S. release in 10 years and the almighty Alternative Tentacles puts it out. Here are 11 new tracks to jam out to, nice bright cover stands out for me since it’s very bright but these tracks are really something to listen to. Apparently these guys are heading out on a U.S./Canadian tour for 2014 and with the sounds of this CD. I’m going to try and see these guys. (XbezerkerX)
URBAN HEAD RAW hail from JAPAN. They play fast metal with amazing guitar riffs that are ear splitting. On this CD effort you have 8 brand new tracks from these heavy hitters. This band features members of other Japanese punk,hardcore and metal bands that have come together to form one super group. Very fast and thrashy riffs . Get your thrash hats out and your high top nike’ and start a circle pit with your best buds while drinking a beer. If you are in the Minneapolis scene think LOCKGNAR or PLAQUED INSANITY (but less goofy) (XbezerkerX)
There is a rich history behind this release , this is a collective of different individuals in the North Suburbs of Chicago that got together and started making the sounds that they grew up with. So here is a CD with 12 tracks of punk rock, and rockabilly. This isn’t a bad release at all it’s just not something I typically listen to but if you’re into old school punkabilly then this is for you. Look this album up and read about it’s history, also cd booklet is a nice little comic book that deserves a quick flip through. (XbezerkerX)
Not going to lie but this is one of my favorite labels right now. They are putting out some solid releases and here is another example of that ETERNAL SLEEP, play some really heavy hardcore in the vein of INTEGRITY, RINGWORM and LEFT FOR DEAD. Here is there debut 7 inch with 4 songs of straight forward angry hardcore. This release can be found in the PROFANE webstore and I really recommend checking this record out. Here is there bandcamp link and a link to HEAD2WALL Records. (Xbezerker)
