Bronze – Ticking Bomb LP (Geenger Records)

Today we have one of the latest releases from a recent Geenger Records batch. Just like Isolation Blues by In From The Cold, this one also suffered some delays in vinyl production due to the messed-up logistics in the vinyl factory. That’s not a surprise considering most of the record labels/vinyl manufacturers postponed some of… Read More Bronze – Ticking Bomb LP (Geenger Records)

Become One – Subsidence CD EP (New Morality Zine)

It’s been a while since I wrote about the hardcore bands on these pages, so pay close attention to this particular release. Become One is a long-running Long Island hardcore group. The band exists since the late nineties and has a couple of releases in the catalog. Therefore, it’s known only to die-hard fans of… Read More Become One – Subsidence CD EP (New Morality Zine)

Stubborn Will – Contempt CD EP (Engineer Records)

Here’s another one from the recent Engineer Records batch. I have to admit I wasn’t familiar with this group, but their sound blew me away as soon as I pressed play. Stubborn Will is a brand new melodic hardcore trio from Spokane, Washington, USA. As far as I am informed, this particular recording is their… Read More Stubborn Will – Contempt CD EP (Engineer Records)

Abuse Ritual – Abuse Ritual CD (Demons Run Amok Entertainment)

A couple of recent releases by Demons Run Amok Entertainment arrived about a week ago, so I thought it would be great to start a weekend with a debut full-length recording by Abuse Ritual. As far as I am informed, Abuse Ritual is a brand new band formed by the former members of bands such… Read More Abuse Ritual – Abuse Ritual CD (Demons Run Amok Entertainment)

Eternal Struggle – Year Of The Gun CD (Demons Run Amok / Upstate Records)

Today I have a special treat for those who love their hardcore music hard, aggressive, relentless as much as possible. This band is a real deal, all-inclusive package, and it stacks all of these qualities as much as possible. After all, they caught the eye of Brian Mitts Daniels (Madball/Skarhead), who offered to the group… Read More Eternal Struggle – Year Of The Gun CD (Demons Run Amok / Upstate Records)

Enraged Monkeys – No Compromise CD (Hicktown Records)

This band caught my attention even before I heard their debut single Leave The Sea. As a longtime fan of Planet Of The Apes movies, comics, books, and the entire franchise, I couldn’t avoid this band by any means. I was even more surprised no one ever considered this franchise for a possible visual/thematical aesthetics… Read More Enraged Monkeys – No Compromise CD (Hicktown Records)

Truth & Tragedy – Innocence Abandoned CD

Here’s another great one that I purposely left as a treat for this Sunday. Truth & Tragedy is a tremendous post-hardcore duo, which developed as a result of six months of planning, songwriting, and recording. This German duo emanates from Bamberg, and recently they premiered their debut full-length material over social media. Truth & Tragedy… Read More Truth & Tragedy – Innocence Abandoned CD

TV Generation & The Sinema – Live at Uncle Lou’s, Orlando FL 7″ (DCxPC Live Vol. 2)

DCxPC strikes back with another volume of the live split releases. I had an opportunity to write about the first edition, so the DCxPC decided to send a second volume for review. For those who somehow missed my previous review, DCxPC was one of the first ones who adapted live streams during the pandemics, but… Read More TV Generation & The Sinema – Live at Uncle Lou’s, Orlando FL 7″ (DCxPC Live Vol. 2)

V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 1. (Grazil Records)

Back in the pre-digital era, various artists’ compilations and samplers acted as the crucial source for discovering fresh music. It was a convenient way to promote the latest singles, announce albums or introduce brand new artists/bands to the broader auditorium. Then the digital era commenced, and digital singles replaced regular 7″ records, compilations, and samplers.… Read More V/A – Grazil Records & Friends Vol. 1. (Grazil Records)

Regrowth – Lungs CD (Various Labels)

Lungs is a debut full-length recording by an astounding Sardinian melodic hardcore group Regrowth that popped out in my mailbox today. Judging by the visual aesthetics and album title, I can only assume that the group is embracing current anxieties caused by the pandemic, which rapidly struck upon the entire Apennine peninsula. The visual identity… Read More Regrowth – Lungs CD (Various Labels)

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)
