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.

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’.

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.

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.

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)
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)
COMPLETE TITLE: Maps to The Other Side: the adventures of a bipolar cartographer
topics included in this book:
seed saving, mental health advocacy, freight trains, squatter lifestyle, biodiesel mechanics
Monsanto, Hormel, Del Monte. Three easily recognized names in most grocery stores, and yet what do these companies really represent to you? To some people, it’s just the biggest food companies in America today. To conspiracy minded people, these 3 companies represent an attempt toward enslavement of the human race. The author of this book and many other people would go with the second one. Indeed, such innocent activities as seed saving, organic gardening, and CSA (community supported agriculture) are revolutionary acts in the age of GMOs and mono-crop agriculture on the industrial level. And the food you grow from seed tastes better than what’s in the grocery store too!
Another main focus of this book is about dealing with bipolar disorder in this crazy world and accounts from the authors own life of insane manias and bone-chilling depressions. This could be very helpful to those who deal / suffer with the same issues.
Influenced by the author’s own counter-culture (see punk) roots and mental frame, Sascha DuBrul has become seed-saving revolutionary and mental health activist. Along with help from other comrades, he has established two organizations in the San Francisco / Oakland / Berkeley area to help enrich the communities he is a part of. The first is the Icarus Project, a peer to peer forum for those dealing with / suffering from emotional and mental difficulties. The other is BASIL (Bay Area Seed Interchange Library), dedicated to the preservation of organic bio-diversity and open pollinated fruits / veggies. Members of BASIL also partake in urban guerilla gardening, and inspire others around the world. Sascha Altman DuBrul has been a regular contributor to zines such as Slug & Lettuce, and played bass on NYC band Choking Victim’s first EP Crack Rock Steady.

Two incredible new jams from NO STATIK here, first you have “No Hospice” A nice guitar and drum intro leads into very aggressive vocals. I’m always a fan of a female fronted hardcore/punk band. The lyrics of this song are very hauntingly true to everyone and how they feel entitled to everything they want because they think they deserve it. Really there are few people who actually get what they deserve. The B-Side to this album is titled “Clean Swift Sunshine” very well put together raw and angry track, with pounding drums and fast guitar this little slice of heaven on wax is a must own for any fan of this band or any fan of good music. Check it out, also if you’re lucky you’ll get it on gold wax. (XbezerkerX)
