Discourage is a new 3-piece from Columbia South Carolina that play political as all hell fuckin punk rock. this is urgent anarcho-punk that has intricate riffage and complex drumming with anguished lyrics over the top of it all. At times mid-paced and suddenly bashing into fast paced yet melodic parts and layered with dual vocals on some parts. the lyrics package is a very DIY zine full of riot footage from around the world, and calloused lyrics about the protest movements in the States. one song mentions how SOME people at the Occupy movement thought they were beating the cops by playing Leftover Crack and drinking in the park. This is a call to direct action from the United States of Apathy. very solid demo from the Amerikkkan southeast.

this 3 piece from Los Angeles bring the politics with the beer on this raging d-beat recording of 4 songs. Songs about war (obviously), religion, crooked politicians, and heroin leave you thinking about the issues long after this record has finished playing. Death Over Greed is by far the longest out of the four and has a really cool intro before blasting into the rage. Dual vox on all songs along with thick guitars and top notch drumming influenced by crusty core bands such as DooM and Wolfbrigade. released on Dirty Mick Records. All records come with digital download card and 18″ X 18″ poster.

Haunting melodies, anguished vocals, and gothic ambiance is how I would describe this blackened – crust punk band from Columbia South Carolina. The current line up has existed since 2011, but these guys bring such tight music that they could have easily been doing this for a while now. Slow / Mid – paced melodies come crashing down with raging crust punk, and then slip into theremin led breakdowns of pure black ambience. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this band live, and the stage show is just as amazing as the music. this music is for those who love epic crust with heart wrenching emotions. Talking to the members of the band, I learned that this cassette is the teaser for their upcoming 7″ due out before the end of the year. the cassette is “A do-it-together effort through Heidrun Collider, IFB, Anti-Corporate Recordings, All We Know, & Get Better! Records.”

Both of these bands are faily new and play crusty grindcore. Debacle tosses out 3 songs with an in – your – face ferocity and are apparently from Melbourne Australia. Lyrics cover topics of religion, squat life, and Sheeple, set at a pummeling rhythm. Debacle released a split with Scotland’s Filthpact in 2012. Inebrious Bastard is formed from members of other Sydney Australia bands such as Leech Woman, Subversion, Noisam, Bastardos, and Sordid. I.B. bring forth 4 tracks from the depths of grindcore hell, and have great lyrics extolling the horrors of war, xenophobia, animal rights, and the ‘war on terror’. Inebrious Bastard have opened for bands such as Subhumans and Steve Ignorant Presents CRASS. 7″ pressing limited to 500 copies. Co-release between Crust Almighty and Beerache Records.

This collection of underground artists loosely categorized within black metal captures the filth, ambiance, and destructive elements of black metal, along with 4 traditional low-fi black metal songs. I hear similarities of Raspberry Bulbs (Chicago), and at other times Burzum (Oslo), but this musical ogre definitely feels unique with approach and style. Side A is mostly ambiance laden with noise and 2 black metal songs. Side B is the musical reverse, being mostly black metal but still experimental as hell. This could probably be used as a film soundtrack, but the combination could potentially be scarring. Nine ‘songs’ total, multiple artists have been used on this release to paint the evil atmosphere. the booklet is laid out like a zine, and the gothic / satanic media give respect to Olde European lifestyle, sacrifice, satanism (surprise surprise), and some intelligent lyrics about the decay of Detroit city. limited to 500 copies, this record comes with a bonus sticker and can be found via Thee High Priestess.

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)
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)
