Whorls is a blackened metal/punk band out of my favorite place, Denmark.  If you are into the Denmark scene right now or blackened punk at all you will surely be into this band. Thier demo tape is their first output and I've been lucky enough to have been able to put it out. So thank you to the band and my buddy Rasmus. This beast of a band recently dropped a brutal, long awaited full length this year that's an orchestrated mess of blackened metallic hardcore that absolutely needs to be heard.  It's a brutal listen.  Snag and Dig.

El Sueño Del Ranchero

Mexico City's El Sueño Del Ranchero was a short-lived grind/screamo project that blended blistering drum work, maniacally complex guitar changes and shrieking vocals.  Their mixture of intense spastic grind is complemented even more with mathy spanish-inspired elements.  Members later went on to form Arse Moreira.  Snag their demo below and Dig.

Demo (2004)


Picture of GROSS
Gross hails from Southern Florida and plays a rough brand of hardcore punk with d-beat and powerviolence sprinklings throughout.  Their tunes are awesomely disgusting, fast and soaked in reverb and distortion.  This ugly mess of punk is memorable and ripping and still has a sound all their own.  Snag everything below and dig.

Mind Eraser

 Boston's Mind Eraser is one of the most punishing hardcore/powerviolence bands I've heard in my life!  Beefy, thrashy and sludgy riffs, roaring vocals, muddy bass and fast as all hell drums that sound as thick and full as their overall sound.  Holy shit, these guys shred like no other!  Below is everything I could find.  Play this loud as fuck!  THEY'RE MIND-BLOWING! DIG!!!

Complaints was a short lived project between Will Killingsworth (Ampere, Longings, Vaccine, Etc.) and Dan Madden (Daniel Striped Tiger & Four Eyes) during a gloomy winter season in Massachusetts.  These two highly talented musicians captured 3 tracks of dirty rocking punk that consisted of twangy guitar leads, constant drum abuse and ferocious vocal howls.  I haven't seen this Youth Attack release posted anywhere for quite some time so I figured I'd share this small gem.  Snag below and DIG!!!!!!

Low Tax

Picture of Low Tax
Low Tax hails from Denver, Colorado and creates a straight-ahead and barbaric brand of dirty hardcore punk.  This pummeling material is rough and grimy with layers of distortion-drenched riffs, beatdown drum work and menacing vocal howls.  These guys are insanely catchy while still maintaining a super gritty sound overall.  Their first demo was definitely interesting but their most recent tape is an absolute ripper.  Snag both releases below and dig.

Cop Rot

II cover art
Seattle's Cop Rot is an ugly, snarling and degenerate hardcore punk outfit.  These raw and raging tracks are loaded with grit and oozing with aggression.  Stomping drums, blazing guitar chords and mean vocals are compiled into a ferocious delivery of off-kilter, barbaric and thrashy punk that is straight-up nasty!  Snag their material below and DIG!

Sejr is a rough, crunchy, fuzzed out and raw black metal project from members of Redflesh and Iceage. Sweet shit, I know. They probably have members of Sexdrome in it too. These guys released a demo on Posh Isolation a little while back and recently dropped an unsettling new 7".  Hopefully they spit out more soon!  Dig.

Picture of FORMS
Orlando, Florida's Forms plays a raw and spastic brand of old school emotional hardcore.  These guys spit out solid tunes filled with angular guitar work, heavy distortion, blasting drum work and heart-wrenching screams.  Steve from Cassettes On Fire rips on guitar and vocal duties in this band and I have to thank someone from The Caution Children for putting me onto these guys.  Snag their EP below and dig.

Six Brew Bantha

Picture of Six Brew Bantha
Six Brew Bantha is a relentless grind-violence trio that hails from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  These guys are an onslaught of heavy, blazing grind that's drenched in chaotic riffs, endless blasts of drum insanity and brutal growls and shrieks.  S.B.B. make an insane amount of noise and all their material is fresh and never recycled.  The guitar riffs are especially tasty and fill every gap of possible silence.  Everything I could hunt down from these dudes is posted below.  Grind on!  Dig!

Members from Dilate hail from Philadelphia, PA and New Brunswick, NJ and construct noisy blazing tracks of Japanese-influenced d-beat hardcore.  This loud, blown-out and aggressive material absolutely rips to the max and creates walls of buzzing riffs, constant drums and vicious vocals.  Their debut demo is a raging and in your face.  Snag it below and DIG!

Adjustment To Society

 photo tumblr_m7mzm7Qg3P1rwghpbo1_1280_zps3b51e47d.jpg
This is some angry, sloppy and ripping straight edge hardcore from Olympia, Washington's Adjustment To Society.  This barbaric material consists of frantic bass work, thrashing guitar riffs, hard-hitting drums and fierce female-fronted vocals.  This is an ugly, raging and primitive hardcore punk band that definitely keeps me wanting much more!  I have to throw a huge thanks to Jeff from Suds Denim for doing everything he does.  Snag everything from this intense band below and DIG!

Italy's Hierophant is just what the doctor ordered.  Crusty, loud, sludgy, dark, and angry. The vocals are a little more black metal influenced, but it suits these guys well since they have elements of black metal in their songwriting.  They've gotten even meaner and their latest full length is an undeniably crushing delivery of brutal hardcore that couldn't be heavier.  I'm so glad that these guys are still going strong.  Snag their current discography below.  Dig
