RSR 108: Get Destroyed - Shut in - 7” -: I listed their last EP as exactly that, their "last" EP. But upon its release, GET DESTROYED! were re-invigorated, wrote a ton of new songs and are back in action. 8 Tracks of full-on Arizona power-violence.
RSR 113: Cyborg/The Afternoon Gentleman - 7” -: This is the first split release as follow the nice demotape by Cyborg from Chicago. These guys also play in WEEKEND NACHOS, but here they stick to the Powerviolence sound like the earlier W.N. releases, hardcore punk smashers between crude 90s fastcore and maniac grindcore. INFEST, SPAZZ and CROSSED OUT. THE AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN can be called the UK's brutal answer to, and they're no doubt as tight as, CYBORG. Their "Pissed Again" 7" had awesome reviews comparing them to a whole slew of grind/pv bands (DESPISE YOU, HELLNATION, INSECT WARFARE, SPAZZ), all adequate comparisons but they are still their own band. A must!
RSR 116: Hatewaves - The tomb - 5” - : HATEWAVES return with a new six song 5"ep of blast beat ridden hardcore with obnoxiously heavy mosh parts in the vein of Haymaker/Iron Lung, played by members of Pulling Teeth and Triac as a fitting tribute to the life of TheXBeast. Gatefold cover limited to 500 on black vinyl, us pressing by a389.
RSR 078 Amputee - 7” -: Young US band consisting of chainsaw to the face and doomsday machine schematic members, hailing to old school Grindcore and Death metal bands especially Assuck, Repulsion and Terrorizer. Amputee first full e.p. is straight up blasting Grindcore worship from New Jersey, so enjoy the grindness.
RSR 112 FUCK ON THE BEACH " EAT EM ALL "
- After 10 years from their 2nd album, finally they put long awaited 3rd
full length out as 15th anniversary of FUCK ON THE BEACH. You can see their
specific progress with their former fast and ferocious way at same time.
They got various approach in song writing with new drummer Kimura, ex.
VIVISICK now playing for tempest too. Twin vocal of Tsuyosy and Atsushi
makes rolling on the songs with full of negative lyrics, FOB have been
pursued their way to play in the way of japanese fast and noisy and they
finally got that on this album.japan powerviolence to the max!!
LIM. 100 ON BLUE VINYL
HAP 007: Rupture/Opposition Party - 7”: Here is the newest HATE APE PRODUCTIONS release, RUPTURE live (last gig) meets OPPOSITION PARTY, snotty Hardcore punk from Perth, Australia and old style Punk from Singapore. Although from decade ago so far, this one just suits me perfectly, so here you go, getting the same vibe hopefully. Surf with me, Baby. Play, hate, destroy. Whatever. Limited to 500 copies.
RSR 105: Cyness/PLF - 7”: CYNESS from Potsdam teams up with P.L.F. from HoustonTexas on this 7”. Cyness is acting over decade brutal grind metal, here are 3 new Tracks, recorded in 2010. P.L.F. is the illegitimate marriage of grindcore and thrash metal. For those that buy into the idea that Rock and Roll has lost its grit, PLF and the Gulf Coast Hardcore scene should renew your faith.
