Ajax! Another fucking amazing punk supergroup from NYC. Will they last? Probably not, but at least they have this nasty five song demo. Fast, fast, fast. This demo doesn't stop. And when it does you're going to want to play it again just in case you missed something. Every time I listen to Bleach For Breakfast, I hope Ajax proves me wrong and stay together long enough to crank out an LP. Download and see for yourself. Oh, did I mention that it's fast?

Enoch Ardon is a chaotic screamo band from Spain. They play a mid-90's style of screamo/hardcore in the vein of Orchid. Chaotic, fast, awesome! What's not to dig? Spanish Orchid. Spazzy. Dig! Below is their demo 7" which was first released on tape, their Self Titled LP, a song they had on the Emo Apocalypse Comp. LP, and their most recent 7", Dedos Rotos. It's their first release in seven years, so snag and Dig it hard!

Sometimes when you're having a rough day or the world just sucks in general, you need to listen to something heavy and hard-hitting. Freedom is a band who can help you. These detroit boys will make you want to stomp, and their punky speed will have you either banging your head or craving a good mosh. Snag and get jiggy with it.
Where do I even start with Backstabbers Inc.? These guys hailed from Portsmouth, NH and constructed some of the most pummeling metallic hardcore I've ever heard in my life! These guys shredded the 2000's to bits with their clever mixture of crust, thrash and grind that's loaded with frenzied riffs, muddy bass, pulverizing drums skills and gut-turning vocal howls. They'll tear you apart and piss on the remains. Every crushing release they've dropped is hard hitting and incredibly intense. This band will never fade out in my mind. I'm still cranking a mixtape I made years ago and they sound just as great as when I first heard 'em. Snag their most recent release M.I.A. It took them ten years to write and finally release it! Dig!

This UK four-piece plays a progressive indie that's much more poppy and memorable then some of the other stuff that's been coming out lately. Headroom definitely have a late 90's early 00's feel to their music, but cut out the unnecessary "jam rock" parts to make room for solid songwriting. Their debut 7" is a good listen no matter what you're doing.
