BURNING SONS – Reduced To Equality LP
It’s crazy to see a new hardcore album being put out by Mystic Records! The pummeling hardcore of BURNING SONS is angrier and definately louder than anything that ever came out on the great “sampler” comps back in the day, but that’s what makes this such a triumphant return for the label; they’re kicking things off with a worthy present-day band and not just relying on their old catalog. And “Reduced To Equality” smokes all the way through, being a heavy fusion of hardcore punk and metal, and sounding something like John Brannon singing for the Cro-mags or Crumbsuckers. As you could probably guess, lyrical content does not deal with themes of holding hands, falling in love, or general happiness. A solid release, overall, and it’s good to see the Mystic skull spinning on the turn-table again. (BG- MRR)

DOOM SIREN / ISKRA Split LP
From Austin Texas, we have DOOM SIREN who storm into 4 brutal new trax of heavy & savage metallic crust.Reminds me a lot of BOLT THROWER Gutteral vocals vomiting hatred for capitalism and war. This being there third and best release yet, these guys are definatly one of my favorite active bands going right now in the states.
On the Flip side of the record hailing from Victoria BC, ISKRA never fail to impress yet again tearing through 4 new tracks of their trademark blackened crust, Including a cover of Marduk’s “Levelling Dust”.After releasing 2 full length LP’s, a split LP with AGAINST EMPIRE, split 7″ with SELF RULE, there own 7″ and various comps and demo cassettes, they are still in full effect and hiting harder then ever, Fuck they are truely one of the most unique and greatest band of our time. Absolutely essential for anybody even remotely interested in crust or black metal.
This tape is raw and chaotic as fuk! It’s called “Hardcore 2011″ but it should have been called “Hardcore 1982″. It sounds like Greg Ginn (Black Flag guitarist) hooked up with the dudes from Discharge and recorded a demo on their friends 4-track somewhere in Russia. Only $3. ORDER HERE!
