Brand new band from Adelaide.
These guys are tight, and do powerviolence proud !!!!!
Reminiscent of really good West Coast powerviolence, ala Infest
& Lack of Interest, these dudes know what they are doing !
Really damn good Demo, short and to the point aggression &
rage filled greatness !!!!!
I just love this Demo !!!!!
They have a 7'' coming soon, definitely keep an eye out for that release !

Rip roaring powerviolence from Australia !
These guys have put out quite a few releases in the past few years,
and all of them rule !!!!!
They just released a new lp also, called Forced To Regress, which
is just as brutal and good as all their previous releases !

These maniacs from Ohio are back for more punishing sounds, with
their new split tracks with Victim Of Circumstance from New York.
I posted their ep Life In Fear last year, which is just brutally
In the last few months I was able to track down their Demo as well,
which i'll add to this post.
These guys do not disappoint, raging powerviolence at it's best !!!!!
My friend from Short Walk has seen these dudes Live, and says that
they are even better on stage, which I have no doubt is true !!!!!
This band, along with Short Walk, SFN, Shut-In, Lifes and many
others, have taken the Midwest by storm !
The powerviolence scene has abundantly grown in that area of the U.S.
over the years, and they are fast becoming veterans of the genre.
So many great new bands out there these days, and Forced Opinion
are definitively at the forefront of the pack !!!!!
Crushing new songs that just totally rule !!!!!
Grab these new split tracks !
So good it will make you want to start a pit in your living room, and
stage dive off your couch !!!!! :)

This is an oldie, but a goodie, and very rare if you actually own a copy !
I was sent a link by Craig, who is an older Punk from the Sacramento
area, and is a contributor to http://sacramentopunkshows.blogspot.com/.
I've always looked for this Demo since it came out in the early 80's, but
was unsuccessful finding it. Big thanks to Craig for linking me up with the
Dead Pledge was definitely one of the best bands ever to come out of the
Sacramento area, along with Rebel Truth, and the illusive J.I.A. (Justice
In America), who's Demo has never been found to date. I think I have
one or two songs by J.I.A. on my old Maximum Rock n' Roll radio tapes,
but I need to dig em up and rip em.
Just a fantastic Demo from the early 80's, fast and to the point for their time !
No track listing for this demo tape.
An absolute must for old hardcore fanatics like me !!!!!
Ripping thrashcore/fastcore from northern California !
I found this Demo on Bandcamp, but the tracks were cut short
due to the recording being ripped almost as a single song. The
tracks were so close together, it was a bit difficult to split it.
That being said, I left some songs together because it was the
right thing to do in this case :)
Thanks to Miles, the guitar player from Ripped To Shreds, who
sent me a link of the full recording as 1 track ! Miles was also in
the great great band Stress Relief as well !!!!!
This band ultimately shreds !!!!!
Fast & furious fastcore, that is absolutely killer !!!!!
Andreya, the singer, is off the charts awesome on this recording !!!!!
Just love this demo !!!!!
Wish Ripped To Shreds still existed, stellar band !!!!!

Yet another great band with my bud Cody from Halifax, Nova Scotia !
This one features Cody, who is in a ton of bands including Envision,
Word On The Street, Castle Wolfenstein, Abject Pax, Concrete
Asylum, Negative Rage, Negative Circles, Grump, Life Chain, Bricks,
Never Human, Cum Rag, and probably more that I don't know about yet,
and Luke Mumford (who records lots of bands from Halifax) who is in
Genetic Angry, Grump, and Negative Rage.
This one is noisy, ruckus, and awesome !!!!!
Fast, angry, and more fun stuff from the Maritime region !
Definitely snatch up this lustfully noisy gem !!!!! :)

No Bullshit were from Seattle, Washington. They disbanded a couple
years back, but leave this last Demo as a memoriam of their final
Ripping fast and distorted hardcore, just like I love !!!!!
This Demo kills !!!!!
Members of No Bullshit were also in bands such as Delusional,
Solitude, and Lindseys. Here are a couple of their bandcamps if you
want to check those bands out.
Devin, the guitar player from No Bullshit, sent me the band info and the
tracklist for the Inside Looking Out Demo.
This band was awesome, too bad they are not still around !
Blistering fast and brutal ! Kind of remind me a little of Seige and Japanese
Love this Demo !!!!!

Here's another new band from from friend Cody in Halifax.
He recently sent me the Never Human - Demo, which I edited and put
on here last month. Never Human is an awesome new band he's in,
amongst a vast number of bands he resides in. Read the post from Never
Human from last month to check the list of all his great bands !!!!!
Cum Rag is a 2 man project with Cody on vocals, and Ian from Last Laugh
and many other bands plays all the instruments on this demo.
Anyway, Cum Rag is a brand new project which is unbelievably good !!!!!
One of my favorite Demos right now !!!!!
Cody's vocals are epic on this project !!!!! Reminiscent vocal sound in
comparison to the singer's of The Wankys and The Fartz.
One of the best releases so far in 2014 !!!!
Stellar Demo !!!! You need this one !!!!!

Hailing from the UK, The Flex have steamrolled through the scene
over the last few years.
Great band that have alot of influences ! They play everything from
old 80's hardcore, to noise, to powerviolence, to crust, and old fashioned
Very impressive band, one of my favorite UK bands at the moment !
They will be coming to the US soon, not sure how extensive their Tour
will be, but they will be playing Damaged City Fest in D.C. with a host
of epic bands including Government Issue & Infest !
They will have a new lp out soon, can't wait for that one !!!!!
I'll post all 3 volumes of their Flexual Healing series of cassettes.
Grab these, as they are all 1 track on their bandcamp !

Newer band from Melbourne, Australia, featuring members of
Split Teeth, Pathetic Human, Havittajat, Flesh World, Masses, and
This Demo is absolutely killer !!!!!
Noisy hardcore mixed with elements of crust, powerviolence, noise,
and good old fashioned hardcore !
This band is one of the better new bands hailing from Melbourne,
very new to the scene !
This Demo is a definite must !!!!!
01 Money Talks
02 End Days
05 Dead Society
06 The Dawn
These guys are a newer powerviolence band from Melbourne, Austalia.
They've been around about 3 years now, and have a couple releases
under their belt. They have another split coming soon with Flesh
Police, another great band from down under, specifically Perth !
This is Split Teeth's split with Trap from Indonesia, and it's a definite
ripper ! I edited this one over a year ago, just getting to putting it up now.
Got the word from their drummer Jake that it was cool to post this bad boy !
Still looking for the Trap side of the split, and any other releases by Trap.
Split Teeth are on the fore front of great new Australian bands, and
they truly know what they are doing !
Powerviolence at it's best, these guys rule !!!!!

Here's a newer band out of Massachusetts, featuring the guitar player
from Brain Killer.
They don't have any releases yet, but hopefully they are working on a
Demo or release !
The flyer above is not the flyer for the show at Spaced Mountain, but
I couldn't find a flyer for that show.
Damn good band, very promising !!!! The songs here rip !!!!! Recording
is not the best, but the songs are awesome !!!!!
Again, no track titles for this Live set, I have very little info on the band.
One of my friend's south of Boston told me about these guys, and sent me
a link of the show. He also said they were killer Live, and the singer was
ominous and bold, which are great traits in a hardcore singer !!!!
I can never go wrong with his recommendations ! :)
This band came out of Boston a few years back, and only existed for
a short time. Made up of members of Mind Eraser, Scapegoat, Think
I Care, No Tolerance, Mental, Prisoner Abuse, Wolf Whistle, Rival
Mob, Peacebreakers, and probably alot more i'm not mentioning :)
Featuring of course, someone that's been in freakin' tons and tons
of bands in the last 12 or more years, Justin DeTore (aka-DJF).
Anyhow, I don't normally get into this style of hardcore, kind of
dark, slower, slightly more sludgy than my taste, but I definitely
dig this band !
This is there 2nd, and last release, kind of a Discography. No track
listing for this one.
There is a definite dark side to this band, but also alot of humor and fun !
A true Boston classic, grab it, this tape is rare !
