Ghostlimb

This thrashy, melodic, angry riff-monster is called Ghostlimb. They've been active since 2006 and I hope they never plan on stopping... ever!  Every release of theirs shreds insanely hard.  No complaints here.  Each release is different, but never strays away from the general feel of their pummeling self-titled debut. This is all of their shit, download and get pissed.  Dig.

Blackball

Blackball hails from Raleigh/Richmond, Virginia and plays a destructive and menacing brand of supercharged hardcore punk.  This band rips through track after raging track of gritty, distorted hardcore mayhem that doesn't let up.  Their 3 song cs was gripping from the second I heard it and now they've dropped an utterly brutal 7" that hits incredibly hard.  Snag both releases below and DIG!

Sacridose

Sacridose hails from the Tampa/Gainesville area of Florida and plays a maniacal grindcore/powerviolence hybrid that shreds hard!  Made up of ex-Cellgraft members, this is some brutal material that's delivered at blistering speeds with walls of shredding guitar insanity, muddled bass noise, blasting drum beats and fierce vocal shrieks.  These maniacs dropped an amazing 7" a couple years back, followed it up with an incredible split with Triac and recently released a new cassette!  Snag all three releases below and get your face melted.  Dig.

Absolute Power

Yep, Absolute Power has been unleashed on Youth Attack and it's a a beast of a release.  With the pedigree of the members included, you couldn't expect anything less than sheer chaos and a ripping display of solid hardcore punk.  Their LP is fast, fierce, and loaded with raging energy.  I can't/won't continue to describe this album, just listen and be amazed.  Dig.

D.L.I.M.C.

Northwest Indiana seems like an oddly magical place for punk and hardcore.  Here's one of the many solo projects of Mark Winter called D.L.I.M.C.  This is an undeniably fun and catchy delivery of Mark's signature wackiness.  The guitar and bass work is incredibly inventive and upbeat with climbing structures and tasty licks sprinkled throughout, his drumming is on point, non-stop and his colorful vocals really shine with his expected energy and goofiness.  Snag his cassingles below and hope for more soon!  Dig!

Indignation

NYC's Indignation hits hard with a sonic assault of blown-out d-beat mayhem.  These guys drive right into your skull with noise-drenched guitar and bass, barbaric drum work and roaring vocal grunts.  Their demo from last year is unbelievably brutal and I can't wait to hear what follows.  Snag this beast below and rage hard!  Dig.

Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and plays urgent, no-holds-barred hardcore punk that doesn't give you a second to breathe.  Their demo blew me away at first listen with manic energy, non-stop riffs, fast-as-hell drum work and tough vocal grunts.  These guys recently dropped a mean 12" EP that's easily one of the best releases of the year.  If you haven't yet indulged in this band's material, snag it below and dig your brains out.  This shit owns!!!

Barbed Wire is a rock'n'roll fused punk band from NYC that kicks some serious ass.  These guys deliver tasty guitar licks that climb all over the place, groovy bass rhythms, driving drums and wailing cock-rock-style vocals that are gritty and forceful.  Their debut release is super rad and will surely have you banging your head.  Dig.
