Dirty Work

Picture of Dirty Work
Here some raging thrash punk from Kansas City's Dirty Work.  This is some degenerate, grime-coated sloppy hardcore punk sounds that're ugly and obnoxiously awesome.  These rippers are fast-paced, down your throat and loaded with non-stop energy.  Dirty Work had me hooked from the first listen.  Snag and dig.

Vancouver's SNØB plays some dirty 80's-inspired hardcore punk that's mean, frantic and loaded with aggression.  Throaty, pissed off vocals top off these thumping, thrash filled tracks of spastic drums, blaring riffs and some of the best bass parts I've heard in a punk band.  After dropping one of the best demos ever and an insanely rowdy 7", these guys released some more ragers on a new compilation.  I simply can't deny this band's instant greatness.  Snag everything below and look for even more material in the near future!  Dig.

Deadbeat L.A.

Deadbeat L.A. have a strong old school hardcore influence in their music and never skimp on the chuggy breakdowns or blast beats. These boys might be new on the block but sure don't sound like it. 

Members were also in: Barking Backwards

For fans of: Creem, Trap Them, Hoax, & Cancer Kids


Picture of Intent
Here's some mean beatdown hardcore from Intent.  These stomping and thrashy tracks are filled with thick chugging riffs, barbaric drum beatings and forceful vocal grunts.  This band is is tough and hard hitting with a gritty overall feel.  Snag these raging tracks below and dig.

Hassler is a ripping hardcore band from Toronto.  These guys construct thrashy, meaty and barbaric hardcore punk with an incredible overall sound.  Throaty howls are shouted over thick, hard-hitting drums, distortion-coated punk riffs and muddled bass lines.  These guys are just plain mean and will hopefully continue to release more quality jams as good as their current discography already is.  Snag everything below and be amazed.  Dig!

Chest Pain

Picture of Chest Pain
Chest Pain hails from Texas and plays a fierce hybrid of blistering powerviolence and nasty hardcore punk.  Their sound is loaded with buzzing guitars, down-tuned bass fuzz, spastic drum abuse and vicious vocals.  These guys finally released a full length after a couple of crushing EP's and I must say it's some of the most relentless powerviolence material dropped in recent years.  Snag everything below and rip shit up.  Dig.

Face The Rail

Picture of Face the Rail — face the rail
San Francisco's Face The Rail plays fuzzed-out and energized skate-friendly punk complete with sonic surf riffs, muddy bass lines, constant drums and snotty vocals.  This band has an overall refreshing sound that really stands out among many other recent acts.  These grunge/pop/surf punk tracks will have you hooked instantly.  Snag everything below and DIG!

Ancestors is a noisy, distorted mess of blackened punk featuring Mark McCoy.  Their sound is full of buzzing riffs, muddled noise, frantic drums and disgustingly obnoxious vocals.  This stuff is driving, weird, raging and original.  Their latest 7" is fucking amazing and full of surprising vibes.  Snag the band's discography below and get gross.  Dig.

Now for a guilty pleasure from Boston's infamous drunk punks, Darkbuster.  This is booze-fueled punk rock that's gritty and catchy-as-hell with added sprinklings of street punk and ska.  These bar room anthems are fun and straight to the point with sing-along chants galore.  22 Songs That You'll Never Want To Hear Again is essential for any fan of the genre, so i would start there as a new listener of the band.  Snag, chug, dig.
