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)

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)

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)

Amalia Bloom – Maiden Voyage CD (Engineer Records)

Amalia Bloom originates from Vicenza, and Maiden Voyage is one of their latest offerings to the broader audience. This Italian emotive post-hardcore quintet has been active for a while, paving their way to the top with a profoundly melodic, but yet delicate approach to the genre. The group worked hard since the formation at the… Read More Amalia Bloom – Maiden Voyage CD (Engineer Records)

Coilguns – Watchwinders LP (Hummus Records)

Coilguns are operating as a complex singular sonic mechanism based on technical harmonizations, chaotic melodic sequences, massive drop-tuned riffages, and mathematically precise drumbeats. These skillful Swiss musicians are hailing from La Chaux De Fonds, and their existence is solely based on firing sonic equations stacked within highly energetic clusters. The band has delivered loads of… Read More Coilguns – Watchwinders LP (Hummus Records)

Mindforce – Swingin Swords, Choppin Lords 12″ EP (Triple B Records)

These guys are no strangers to our blog. We previously had a chance to review their full-length debut called Excalibur, an intense hardcore record that entirely goes beyond the genre. This Poughkeepsie, NY based group combines incredible musicianship with highly driven crossover thrash shreddings, but the essence of their music lays down in hardcore roots.… Read More Mindforce – Swingin Swords, Choppin Lords 12″ EP (Triple B Records)

Kevlar Bikini – OUT-OPTism LP (Geenger Records)

OUT-OPTism is the fourth full-length album by Kevlar Bikini. These Croatian heavyweights have been active since 2010, and have published some quality records, but this is actually their second record as a trio. However, that doesn’t stop them to produce a wide array of technically demanding compositions. Quite the contrary, Kevlar Bikini gets even better… Read More Kevlar Bikini – OUT-OPTism LP (Geenger Records)
