Siberian Hell Sounds

Siberian Hell Sounds play an unrelenting concoction of grinding metal, crust and massive sludge grooves.  These dudes create a non-stop sound consisting of driving riffs coated in thick distortion, deep bass rhythms and intense vocals that range from guttural and girthy to throat-destroying shrieks.  These guys have been on my own personal back-burner for no damn good reason, but here you go.  Snag this destructive material below and dig!

Picture of Curmudgeon
Boston's Curmudgeon is an intense display of crushing metallic powerviolence that's heavy as hell.  Female fronted howls, pummeling drums, crunchy guitar chugs and deep bass tones are soaked with feedback and the result is brutally destructive.  I've been digging on this band for too long without throwing some props their way.  This shit is brutal.  Snag everything below and DIG!

RVIVR is an amazingly fun punk rock band from Washington State.  Dual male/female sing-a-longs & rapid-fire guitar picking make this band surprisingly awesome.  Everytime I crank their jamz, a huge smile is slapped on my face and I can't resist from rockin' out heavy and bangin' my head!  So damn catchy and enjoyable, I feel everyone has to peep these guys/girls.  Rock-solid mood-music for a good time.  They make it sound simple yet so much magic is going on withing their songwriting and ends up as a perfect blend of punk rock.  The band's most recent release is incredibly catchy and just as addicting as their previous material has been.  Enjoy! Smile! Laugh! Sing! Jam! Dig!

The Joester Sessions 2008-2011 LP


Manic is from Atlanta,GA and plays some menacingly aggressive hardcore punk jams.  These primitive tunes are loaded with shredding guitar chords, down-tuned bass parts, frantic drum beatings and ugly strained vocals.  Their 7" rips hard as hell and leaves you wanting plenty more.  I posted their ripping EP below along with a compilation that features two exclusive tracks from these guys.  I can't find the band's demo anywhere so someone, please hook it up!  Snag and Dig!

Death To Tyrants

Death To Tyrants hails from Peterborough, NH and play a timeless blend of experimental hardcore, math rock and sometimes folk.  Mostly instrumental, these guys keep it progressive and jazzy with endless time changes and epic build-ups that are simply mind-blowing.  Their sound flows from spastic and technical to beautifully arranged ambiance.  DTT are always refreshing to hear and have been one of the most standout bands I've had the privilege to see live.  It's pure talent and 4 friends creating amazing songs  
for the love of jamming.  This incredible NH band just dropped a brand new 7" on Tor Johnson Records and it's the first new material from the band in far too long.  Death To Tyrants has always been one of my absolute favorites and their long-awaited EP is easily some of the finest material that has blessed this year of already great music.  The only releases I can't seem to dig up are the Expositions 2-8 CD-R and Cast & Camber Remix's.  Snag everything below and listen in awe.  This shit's magic.  Also, keep on the lookout for a possible Ampere / Death To Tyrants Split 8" in the future.  I know... insaaaane!!!! Dig.

Oh yes, it's going to get weird once you put this demo on. Coneheads are a basement punk band who have decided to douse themselves in creepy circus riffs, robot meets alien vocals with science-fiction wackyness. Keep in mind, it's still punk and man is it catchy. Who said weird can't be catchy? Shout out to Suds Denim for finding this gem. Hack! Hack! Hack!

Ritual Mess

Ritual Mess brings you a sound that sparks back to the foundation of Gravity Records with nods to such bands as Antioch Arrow, and The Swing Kids, but all the while keeping a highly original sound that's undeniably aggressive and delivers a hard punch.  Their Debut 7" was a stunning display of exactly what the members were aiming for.  Then a recent full-length was released and gave this band room to get in your head completely.  This is passion and intensity that's captured with a masterful production and will sure live long after your first aural injection.  This is the closest thing to an Orchid reunion indeed.  Snag these gems below and DIG!

The Sentenced

Picture of The Sentenced
The Sentenced hails from Denton/Fort Worth, Texas and plays a fuzzed-out and degenerate blend of hardcore insanity.  Their demo was another highlight from last year that won't stop blaring through my speakers.  Snag it below if you haven't already, it's a fucking ripper!  Dig.

Picture of Die
The United Kingdom's DiE is a thumping, snarling and primitive brand of intensely menacing hardcore.  Powerful walls of distorted bass and guitars flood over barbarian drums and vicious vocal assaults with massive success.  The band's debut was a complete rager beyond compare and now they recently dropped another destructive EP.  Snag and dig.  This is insane!!

Dangüs Tarküs

If you enjoyed Nancy's demo as much as you should have, here's some more action from some of the members.  Dangüs Tarküs is, you guessed it, some more rock'n'roll fused punk awesomeness that even combines catchy glam-rock vibes that're too baddass to dislike.  No joke, get this.  Even less of a joke, listen to the Nancy demo already!  New York continues to spill out gold.  Keep it up!  Snag below and dig.

Life Problem

Here's some urgent angst-ridden hardcore punk from Boston's Life Problem.  Their demo is a thrashing mess of raging basement punk that never lets up.  From their upbeat percussion to ripping guitar leads, this band holds it down!  I also heard the bassist was from the immensely talented Et Tu Brute, so there's that too.  Snag their debut below and hope for more soon.  Dig.

Impalers are a ferocious d-beat metal/hardcore band consisting of the guitarist/vocalist of Mammoth Grinder and the drummer of Hatred Surge.  These masters play a crushing, thumping blend of Discharge-influenced hardcore that is flat out demolishing.  Intense, loud and thunderous drums are the backbone to some ripping guitars that are driving with intensity and sprinkled with shredding solo's.  The vocals are especially harsh and devilish with an eerie echo effect throughout the howling.  Their entire discography is posted below.  Snag and Dig!
