Dark, heavy, galloping crust from the streets of London. AGNOSY is back to present us with a ferocious beast of an album that can only be forged by the anger and frustration of living in today’s world. “When Daylight Reveals The Torture” aggressively attacks evils such the current rise of fascism and animal abuse. It intelligently and passionately touches on the Afrin invasion and the revolution in Rojava and shows nothing but utter disgust toward the arrogance of humankind’s lust for greed and power that will inevitably lead us down paths of war and environmental devastation.
While lyrically AGNOSY are much more politicly straight forward this time around than on previous releases, musically they have expanded on their sound to create a dark and moody atmosphere while at the same time staying crust as fuck. To say they know what they are doing would be an understatement from this band of vets whose members have played in HIATUS, HEALTH HAZARD, and BEGINNING OF THE END.
Long galloping intros are followed up by traditional d-beat, fierce solo’s are then meet with vicious vocals and pulverizing bass in a brilliant recording captured by Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House and was mastered by Brad Boatright at Portland’s legendary Audiosiege. We then pressed on deluxe heavyweight 150-gram vinyl, printed on reverse board jackets, and included an 11in x 22in gatefold insert to bring you a high quality and truly epic record.
The legendary crust classic is now available once again!
Authorized and released in cooperation with MISERY, S.D.S., & MCR Japan & Remastered by Jack Butcher at Enormous Door Studio we are beyond proud to make one one the most rare and sought after crust records available once again.
Fuck the scavengers charging punks exuberant amounts of cash on ebay and discogs. We worked meticulously with both bands and with Jack at Enormous door to bring you an updated version that kicks major audio ass while maintaining the original authenticity.
Released on deluxe 150 gram vinyl. With an 11×11 inner sleeve. Black Paper Jacket. Reverse Board Jacket.
Earlier this year we re-issued this legendary LP and sold over 950 copies in just 4 short months. For this second pressing we pressed 490 copies on Krystal Clear & 485 on Grey Vinyl with Black Mist.
Stench crust the way it was meant to be played!
The UK crust scene of the 1980’s inspired band after band but no other band has ever reincarnated the sound of that time as well as SWORDWIELDER. Quite simply if you like crust, then this the album you have waited decades for.
Review by Craig Hayes from “Your Last Rites”… Swordwielder – System Overlord Heavyweight punk fanatics take note: System Overlord is a fucking triumph. The long-awaited sophomore album from Gothenburg stenchcore band Swordwielder is a brooding behemoth, constructed from the filthiest and heftiest strains of punk and metal. System Overlord shimmers with apocalyptic visions, and it’s overflowing with all the grim atmospherics and intimidating intensity that defines consummate crushing crust.
Too much hype? No way… And no apologies, either. Swordwielder deal in definitive stenchcore on System Overlord, and much like their full-length debut, 2013’s Grim Visions of Battle, the band’s latest release is a knockout. Swordwielder’s harsh, gruff and dark sound owes a significant debt to old school icons like Amebix, Axegrinder, Deviated Instinct, and Antisect, and they mix and mangle their influences and leave ’em to rot on the battlefield.
Plenty of hammering rage drives System Overlord tracks like “Violent Revolution,” “Savage Execution” and “Cyborgs,” and thundering epics like “Corrupt Future” and “Northern Lights” exhibit subtler strengths, mixing guttural growls and clean vocals with crashing percussion and dirge-laden riffs. Connoisseurs of corpse-dragging crust will love the brute-force belligerence of “Absolute Fear,” “Nuclear Winter,” and “Second Attack,” which rain down like merciless mortar barrages. As a rule, all of System Overlord‘s mammoth tracks chug and churn with grinding muscle, while reeking of squalor and decay.
Swordwielder exudes tightly coiled aggression from start to finish here—songs rise from the ashes of desolation, and resounding calls for action and resistance ring loud. If you’re a fan of heavy-hitters like Fatum, War//Plague, Carnage, Zygome, Cancer Spreading or (insert your favorite hefty crust crew here), System Overlord‘s trampling tempo and strapping sound are bound to appeal.
WILT combine old school metal and crust in a perfect hybrid that very few others have ever achieved. Prepare for a LP thats equal parts galloping d-beat crust reminiscent of bands like HELLSHOCK, and INSTINCT OF SURVIVAL, meets old school death metal in the vein of BOLT THROWER, MEMORIAM (old) SEPULTURA.
Here is a track from the upcoming LP
“Sermon for the Bootlickers”
Despite the inculcation of helplessness within each there remains great power. Ill at ease with such makes us ill. Learn to see the hand that feeds for what it is. You’ve been fooled if you think you’ve got no power. Refuse to be reduced to a consumer you’re a human being. Define yourself by more than wealth. Define yourself as a human. You don’t need what you’re being sold. Bend your knee to no authority but your own mind. You have the power to avoid the gilded trap. Avarice is what you’re conditioned for. Break the mold discover what’s really valuable to you.

Brace yourself for one of the most uncompromising hard hitting and politically outspoken records of this era. STORM OF SEDITION are an anti-civilization anarchist crust punk band based out of Victoria BC. Sharing members with the mighty ISKRA you can definitely expect some serious blackened crust, and yes a huge metal influence is prevalent however STORM OF SEDITION are a bit more reminiscent of bands like CONTRAVENE & NAUSEA. “Decivilize” brings a heavy anarcho punk dynamic to the table combined with over the top blackened crust grind thats littered with blistering solo’s, insanely powerful drumbeats, and thought productive lyrics that challenge our current state of human civilization. All in all this is an absolute monster of a release!
Comes with a 12 page booklet containing lyrics, notes, and song explanations.
STORM OF SEDITION WILL TOURING THE WEST COAST THIS SUMMER!!!
Keep you eye’s peeled for a list of tour dates soon!
Listen to the song “Disconnect” here…
Living a domesticated existence Starves people of meaning in their lives Everyone feels the void beneath the surface Of everyday activities and routines
Miserable, exploited, mass populations Feeding the industrial systems endless hunger Treated like machines, living beings Enslaved and kept passive in a technological noose
We live in these cages Made of concrete, glass, and steel A functioning human made hell Complete with natural scenery
Yet there is no community Deprived of connection with real people Technology perpetuates alienation But promises to connect us
And fill the void in our lives In constant need of escape and distraction From this fucking ugly world Technology creeping into our lives
Pop culture, pacifying shit Endless distractions to curb dissent A society of lonely domesticated beings Attempting social interaction behind a digital screen
Clinging to the feeling of connectedness Personalized profiles, mass communication tools Monitored and funded by pigs Spying on people, on movements While corporations profit off government control Microsoft, apple, fedbook Endless lists of corporations Infiltrating our everyday lives The NSA, the CSE Databases created from what you share Information for incrimination Millions of people on terrorist watch lists Technology’s a weapon used against us
Its function is to propel their ability To efficiently exploit us and the natural world While doing so capitalizing off selling us Gadgets to distract us from the lives we live and hate
Turn off that shit, enter the real world You are not connected You are alone staring into a fucking a screen
Get outside, meet with real people! Even if we use these tools We must never forget
Technology is a system created by and for those in power And it will only exist with Division of labor, exploitation, and death
Becoming connected through technology Is a sick fucking joke

SOD HAULER – Self Titled e.p.
Sod Hauler, hail from Seattle and feature members of STATE OF THE UNION… a band with several releases on Profane Existence. Although we haven’t released anything for Sod Hauler we believe them to be solid as f*ck band with a heavy as f*ck sound that is punishing and demands attention. And we just happened to get an order of their first e.p. so here it is. For fans of Eye Hate God, Sleep, Sabbath and Buzzoven. All Hail Sod Hauler. Smoke up and bow down!
BLOOD OF THE GODS – The Shadow Before
This is the debut release from New Hampshire’s axe-wielding, death-crust-dbeat warriors, Blood of the Gods. Like a clan of possessed, drunken Viking Berzerkers marching into your ear canals, BOTG will violate, pillage and decimate everything you once thought was deadly and brutal in the “Metal-Punk” realm. Eight unsubtle nuances of sheer brutality range from skull crushing slow grooves to gut-wrenching gallops and blood boiling blast beats. Fans of Bolt Thrower, Disrupt, Obituary, Stormcrow and others of similar ilk will proudly sacrifice their eardrums to this devastating disc. Features ex-members of Buriedinhell Record’s very own dbeat/crust merchants, Man The Conveyors.
THE DETONATORS – Balls To You Emergency Broadcasting System (naked: sans case)
“The Detonators were hard-working, long-running, prolific and vastly underrated. They began in California in the mid-1980s (where punk was huge) but inexplicably decided to move to Eugene, Oregon (where punk was nearly non-existent.) Who knows, maybe they wanted a challenge. Maybe they would have been very popular if they’d stayed in California. Maybe they didn’t want to be popular. Like I said, who knows? In any event, the Detonators made a lot of great records. The band considers the 1988 “Balls To You” album their best effort, and I stand in agreement. The Detonators hand-crafted fine, memorable punk rock tunes with a hardcore flair, much in the tradition of D.O.A., Toxic Reasons, Social Unrest and the Canadian Subhumans. Strong guitar riffs and simple vocal lines are the Detonators’ bread and butter, yet each song is uniquely its own.” – (BS)
DON’T FALL ASLEEP – A Minneapolis D.I.Y. compilation for Day Break Newspaper. (naked: sans case)
This comp features variety of Minneapolis based activist-punk/peace punk bands who hung out on the West Bank (Seward, Hard Times, and Bedlam) & supported the anti-corporate anarcho ideals behind Day Break Newspaper. This comp is a few years old now and many of the bands on here have broken up but it is still awesome and stands as a testimony of the d.i.y./community spirit of the Minneapolis scene.
Only one very special person is going to get this package. That’s it. Here is the back story: There is a dude from Minneapolis named Ryan Bezerker. He comes over to Profane Existence to help stuff records. He also runs a d.i.y. tape/record label called Bezerker Records. When we had a bigger distro we use to trade with him all the time. Ryan’s roomate is into country music and loves Kenny Chesney. This bugs the shit out of Ryan. All he does when he’s at Profane is complain about how much he hates having to listen to Kenny Chesney when he is at home. So to mess with our good friend Ryan Bezerker we are offering three of his tapes 1) RELENTLESS APPROACH 2) EYE GOUGE & 3) BLACK COFFEE (Australia) all wrapped up together in a Kenny Chesney 2012 tour edition t-shirt. Sorry. I know everyone is gonna want this… especially for the shirt but it’s the only one we got. ORDER NOW!
COP ON FIRE– Discography: This is the complete discography from these Spanish geniuses of d-beat scandicrust. This includes their Profane Existence release, their hard to find 12″ tracks, split LP with VISIONS OF WAR and a bonus compilation track. COP ON FIRE are made up from members of EKKAIA, MADAME GERMEN, LEADER SHIT, DECREPIT and STATE OF FEAR. This is legendary and a must have! Get it!
SPECIAL MYSTERY BONUS DISC(hand picked by Ben Crew): We just aquired a distro with a bunch of individual cool releases… too many to put up on our webstite. So we we are going to include one, at random, with each order.
We’re far too busy with other commitments (bands, zines, family, fucking up the system, etc.) to continue running such a vast and time consuming operation as PE Distro. We’ve been slowly scaling it back over the last couple of months, but now we’re reaching our self-imposed deadline to call it quits. To speed up the liquidation of our inventory we’ve further reduced prices to practically give-away levels: Zines, CDs, 7″s, cassettes, and even LP records have been marked down to as low as $1. We’re going to be going through all of the shelves and bins the week and scouring them for stuff missing from the web store, so don’t be shocked if some new stuff is added later this week. But don’t wait either because the “good stuff” always sell out first! Check out PE distro HERE.
FYI about the shopping cart: The postage system is strictly weight-based, so don’t be alarm if your shopping cart full of $1 albums costs more to ship than the cart subtotal! We’re too busy to answer your questions like “how much will _____ record cost to ship?” Put it in the shopping cart and go through the checkout process and see for yourself. Payment is the final step of the process so it’s not going to cost you anything to check the prices – including the shipping.
And to keep things perfectly clear, we are NOT shutting down PE Records or the PE Weblog. We will still run a small web store, but it will be focused strictly on Profane Existence releases, including exclusive special editions, color vinyl, limited run shirts, etc. Of course PE Records titles will continue to be available through such places as Interpunk and your local independent record store and small distros. If you are looking for PE titles wholesale, Ebullition may still have select titles and everything will soon be available through Independent Label Distribution.
New titles by ENABLER, PROTESTANT, NORTHLESS, REPUBLICORPSE and dozens more were added to the PE distro today! All titles are priced to move. We don’t want these records sitting on our shelves when you could be playing them. Besides, we have to make room for the new Profane Existence releases coming this spring/summer. Stay tuned for more on that. Until then we’ve got hundreds of top shelf records at bargain bin prices. CHECK IT OUT!
We just got a bunch of new records that came in from various trade partners in Europe… Sweden, Italy… you get the picture. We added them to the web-store and they are priced to move. Dozens of $2 7″s, CD’s & Cassettes and $5 LP’s. We also got some collectable BEHIND ENEMY LINES on red vinyl and COUNTER BLAST screen printed LP’s. Last I checked there were only 17 army green DOOM – Police Bastard 7″s.
After 10 days of moving sale we still have shelves FULL of CDs and DVDs we want gone! Use the coupon code H0YN5N8HZ8 to get 80% off all CDs and DVDs, including those already marked down as much as half price! We’ve been strictly focusing on vinyl for a while now, so we’re not going to be restocking most of what we have now. Don’t miss out on this chance to get rare, obscure, imports, hard to find CD’s for $2 or less!
Or, if you missed out on the moving sale, we’re going to extend the coupon code MOVING another couple of days. This code will get you 60% off everything, including vinyl, T-shirts, etc.
Both coupons will expire at midnight CST on Monday, April 2nd.
