Speedway – S/T 7” (Triple B Records / Svensk Hardcorekultur)

I am running a bit late with this one, but better late than never.

The group consists of Adam Hagerum (Blood Sermon and Wayside), Anton Larsson (Existence and Time To Heal),… Read More Speedway – S/T 7” (Triple B Records / Svensk Hardcorekultur)

Nowheres – The Way Back Home CS EP (Negative Aggression Tapes / Tromatized Tapes)

If you’re profoundly into hardcore music, then you’re probably… Read More Nowheres – The Way Back Home CS EP (Negative Aggression Tapes / Tromatized Tapes)

E.N.D. – A Grave Deceit EP (Geenger Records)

It’s been a while since E.N.D. has released some new recordings. Still, judging by their latest material meaningfully named A Grave Deceit, this Croatian groove/thrash/math metal trio doesn’t have any intentions to stop in the nearer future. E.N.D. are continuously evolving into an even greater entity throughout nearly twenty-five years of their existence as a… Read More E.N.D. – A Grave Deceit EP (Geenger Records)
