Regional Justice Center doesn't fuck around and gets straight to the point. This no-nonsense brand of fast hardcore punk hits hard with blazing riffs, pummeling drums and utterly pissed off vocals. Creative, angular, ferocious and fresh are some descriptions I can stand by without any doubt. Dig!
Here is some raw American black metal at it's finest. Altars formed back in 2003 and has been playing some of the darkest, noisiest blackened punk Iv'e heard in the past years. This stuff is dirty and punishing with well blended power electronics thrown into the mix with insanely haunting results. Snag everything I could find below. Dig!
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. If you haven't yet indulged in this band's material, snag it below and dig your brains out. This shit owns!!!
This two-man project features AJ Durso of Gas Rag, Birth Deformities, Cülo, etc... and Joe Muffin of Nancy and Dangüs Tarküsfame. The Muff Divers play a sweet mash up of punk, rock, & 70's glam. A drum machine keeps time on this material, giving it an even more retro sound if you ask me. Their three releases go by super quick so listen to them twice... or much more. The Muff Divers is crucial if you're a fan of having fun. Dig.
NYC's Warthog is a menacingly loud and fast hardcore outfit that stomps hard and plays dirty. These guys thrash and squeal with riffs coated in feedback, driving drums, fuzzed-out bass and unsettling vocal rage. Snag these raging tunes below and dig face. Nothing short of awesome.
Casanovas In Heat are fucking rad. These Boston boys play a style of music that makes me think of the Gin Blossoms if they went to punk rock academy. Catchy rock vibes with a some driving punk grit going on. Snag this shit now.
Cleveland, Ohio's Cruelster is a fun blessing of raw stripped-down punk energy. And they are fucking weird. Strange sound clips, awkward vocals, and a bunch of other odd sounds throughout their stuff. It's probably some sick joke between the members and a small group of friends, but who cares. The music holds it together really well. Good times. Snag their discography below.
