Serious Shit


"Damn right this is some serious shit.". This was my comment word for word after hearing this demo. Holy shit. Thrash crust punk with a darker progressive twist. Three dudes from Texas. That's all I got. Really hope to revisit this post again because this stuff gets different while still focusing on strong elements of thrash/crust.

Bad Faith


Hey, check it out another band with a name that's similar to a million other "bad" band names. Bad Faith's 11-song demo rips nonetheless. Fast and beefy punk throughout this debut. Download and punch god in the face.

Common Ignorance

Here is some thumping, degenerate hardcore punk from Houston TX's Common Ignorance.  This band is a fuzzed out mess of of 80's influenced raw punk with walls of riffs, dirty sounding bass, frantic drum work and incredibly fierce female-fronted vocals.  Their sound is insanely dirty, noisy and stripped down with massive success.  I got hooked right away so bang your fucking fist and dig.

Dead Instrument

Picture of Dead Instrument
Copenhagen, Denmark's Dead Instrument is an unapologetic grind/powerviolence outfit that knows exactly how to shred faces.  This band plays at blistering speeds and never lets up.  The drummer is a maniacal, spazzed-out beast of a musician, the guitar riffs tear right through you and the vocals are a guttural mess of intense growls and shrieks.  What's not to like?  Seriously, peep this band, they're fucking nuts!  Dig.

Missionary

Here is some surely pissed off American hardcore out of NYC from a cluster-fuck of members that formed Missionary.  This is some direct, aggressive and down-your-throat punk that's as tightly written as it is a low-fi mess of 80's inspired hardcore.  Everything about their sound is insane.  It's full of rage and non-stop energy and at the same time it drops tempo and adds minor Oi! elements to the mix that make the listen even more exciting.  Their tasty 7" just dropped recently and it's too good for words.  Dig.

Glue

Glue is from Austin, Texas and plays a perfect brand of American hardcore punk.  Their demo from 2012 is a godsend of stripped-down, riff driven, thumping punk bliss and they've finally released their follow-up 7"!  This band can do no wrong, and has certainly refreshed all gigs they're attending.  Constantly touring and hopefully writing,  let's pray for a sooner-than-later LP.  Snag and Dig.

Birthday Girl

Demo 2014 cover art
Oakland, CA's Birthday Girl is a noise-rock/weirdo-punk concoction of dirty rocking sounds.  Their tunes are driving and awkward with and upbeat feel and original sound.  It's refreshing to hear the amount of fun contained in their demo.  I can picture all-around smiles on every member's face while cranking out these menacingly deranged alternative punk songs.  This band is ugly and fun and has played shows with other punk heavyweights such as Wild Moth, Gas Rag and Warsong.  Birthday Girl better continue to spill out more entertaining material soon.  Snag their demo below and DIG!

ACxDC

California's ACxDC (Antichrist Demoncore) was formed back in 2003 and played an unrelenting brand of grind-fueled powerviolence that instantly blew up the scene.  ACxDC played an insane amount of rowdy shows, lost a couple members, reformed and continued to tear shit up again.  This band is classic.  Their non-stop energy, blazing speeds and throat-tearing vocals are only brief factors of this maniacal powerhouse.  Snag their long-awaited full length along with their previous blistering material below and dig!
