Demo Cassette (2016)


Baltimore, Maryland's Alter is a promising outfit that constructs beautifully atmospheric shoegaze-infused post-rock.  These guys dropped a gripping debut EP that really absorbed me back in 2015 and now they've unleashed an undeniably epic full length LP.  This trio creates layers of sounds with trance-inducing guitar noise, blanketing bass tones, driving percussion and monotone-yet-melodic vocal harmonies.  Snag everything below.  DIG!

Superdude is an undeniably fun instrumental math-rock outfit hailing from New Hampshire.  These guys play an intricate and progressive mix of rocking sounds that're groovy and melodic.  They're full of energy, loaded with complexity and still maintain an upbeat-yet moody feel that leaves you wanting so much more.  Their amazing demo has finally been followed up with a full length!!!

God's America

Las Vegas, Nevada's God's America plays demolishing grind-violence that's loud, heavy and fast as all hell.   These dudes create a classic powerviolence sound with added heaviness and mammoth volumes.  Shred along to walls of buzzing guitar riffs, rumbling bass tones, pummeling drum insanity and angered vocal howls.  This band is extremely creative and dropped an incredible LP last year that needs to be heard.  Snag everything below and DIG!

Funeral Chic

Funeral Chic hails from Charlotte, North Carolina and constructs a pummeling mixture of blackened hardcore, grindcore, crust and punk that will simply destroy you.  This band dropped a beast-like full length that delivers absolute brutality.  Their sound is insanely heavy and surely pissed off with blasting drum work, blazing guitar riffs, deep bass noise and ferocious vocal howls.  Snag these mammoth sounds below and DIG!

Uranium Club

Uranium Club (or The Minneapolis Uranium Club) is a weird concoction of 70's rock and punk styles with a heavy dose of 80's new wave. This shit is catchy and odd with twangy guitars that come damn close to clashing throughout, all the while giving the listener a delightful ear worm. The general public must agree because their debut self-released CS got a face lift with a vinyl release.  These dudes released a couple of new teasers and a long-awaited follow up album that're incredibly fun and will indeed get stuck in your brain.  Huge thanks to Jimmy for doing all the great things he does.  Snag this gold below and Dig!

- For Fans Of:  Parquet Courts, Devo & Nancy


Scumraid hails from Seoul, South Korea and creates a blown-out mixture of d-beat and noise punk that's layered in grit and fuzz.  These guys construct walls of noisy riffs, crashing cymbals, pummeling drums and howling vocals.  I was blown away after hearing their Rip Up 7''.  Snag everything below, especially the Seoul Comp. Cassette, it features plenty of rad bands from South Korea.  Dig!

The Enforced

Melbourne, Australia's The Enforced plays tough-as-nails hardcore punk.  This stripped down approach is meaty and gruff with stomping drums, plucky bass rhythms, walls of endless punk chords and tough vocal grunts.  This debut cassette hits hard and doesn't mess around.  Get on this now!  Dig!!!!!!

Youth Funeral

New Hampshire's Youth Funeral is a dark and moody screamo outfit that constructs an abrasive and pummeling sound.  Loaded with aggression and emotion, this band's musical output blends earlier emotional hardcore vibes with a more modern and progressively chaotic brand of the ever-growing genre.  This is some solid material and makes me feel relieved that skramz are still alive and well.  Snag their masterpiece of a full length along with their previous rippers below and dig.

The Lowest Form

The Lowest Form hails from London, UK and delivers some unapologetic noise-drenched hardcore punk that demands attention.  This feedback-soaked material is packed with deranged guitar shredding, blown-out bass, thumping drum beatings and fierce vocal howls.  These dudes create utterly deranged and menacing sounds that never skimp on ferocity or speed.  Snag these amazing releases below and dig!
