For those of you who don't know of Soma Coma, they're a hardcore
band from Melbourne, Australia who play unhinged hardcore along
the lines of fast weirdo 80s bands such as Die Kreuzen or Born Without
A Face with more of a scuzzy Australian vibe. This rehearsal tape
precedes the band's demo by two years and showcases a much more
raw, ferocious incarnation of the band in delicious, lo-fi form.
Soma Coma are easily one of my favourite current hardcore bands
in Australia at the moment, and well worth your time. Check em out.
I start this post off with the review above to give you a perspective on the
band. Review from Fucked By Noise blog.
Now i'll give you my perspective.
I met a dude way back in 2007 or so on Soulseek music program, he
downloaded something from me, and we starting talking on the message
board. He said his name was James, he's from Tuross Head Australia, and
he had a band called Eat A Brick.
At the time, the first thing I asked was "where is Tuross Head ?" :) I can't
remember what his reply was, but as I look at a map now I see that it is
in between Sydney and Melbourne along the coast, in New South Wales.
Next question I asked was "does Eat A Brick have a Demo", and I think
they were in the process of finishing it at the time, but he sent me the
MP3's relatively soon after.
When I heard Eat A Brick, I was blown away, loved that band !!!!!
Then there was a gap of time where Eat A Brick was pretty much done,
and James wasn't totally sure where life would take him.
I lost contact with him for a while, then one day he messaged me again
on Soulseek. He said he had moved to Melbourne area and has a new
band called Soma Coma.
Can't remember who he said is in Soma Coma besides himself, but I
think it's guys that were in other bands prior to Soma Coma. Need
to ask him again, haven't talked to him for a while now.
Anyway, when I first heard Soma Coma I was hooked similarly to
when I first heard Eat A Brick.
Although slightly different sounding, Soma Coma brings forth a much
more raw and a bit noisier approach.
They recently released the Dust LP, which I find to be more progressed
then the early Soma Coma recordings.
This LP is freakin' fantastic !!!!! They still have that raw corrosive sound
I love, and they have grown into their skin more as a band.
One of the better releases of 2015 !!!!!
Soma Coma is currently one of the best bands in Australia in my opinion,
although there are tons of great bands all over the beautiful continent !
All Hail to James and the Soma Coma crew, love those guys !!!!!

Compilation from Denver based label Blackout Rage featuring live
sets from Civilized, Need, Culture Shock, Suburbanite, and Cadaver
Dog. Not the best sound quality but it does every band justice. I like
all the bands on this compilation, every band's set on here is great,
and we even get to hear a new Suburbanite song. The packaging is
well put together and the artwork looks great. What more could you
ask for ? This release does a great job at documenting these bands,
full support for Blackout Rage.
As I am too lazy to write today, i'm adding the write up from the blog
I found this great compilation on On-The-Board blog.
All the bands on this are excellent, and illusive at the same time, cause
they rarely release material.
Some, if not all these bands have been on Youth Attack Records, and
Mark McCoy actually plays guitar in Suburbanite.
The recordings are rough, but that's what gives this release the character
and raw primal feel that defines great hardcore !
Anyway, enough philosophical bullshit, grab this comp !!!!
It does not disappoint !!!!! :)

I did a shorter version of their Discography last year
when my friend found it on You Tube.
I've had all the songs and Live stuff for years, but never really
did anything with it.
These guys are one of my favorite fastcore/grindviolence bands
in the last 15 years !
Just fucking raging fast crazy latino hardcore at it's best !
The band contains my good friend Moses from Bastardass,
NxBxCx, Fieldtrip!, Mobile Terror Unit, Syntax...
Jimmy from Max Ward, Bastardass...
and Sergio from ACxDC.
¡LIBERATE! still plays shows, although they haven't released
anything in years. In fact they are playing an upcoming show
with Argentina's Boom Boom Kid.
Ridiculously great great band !!!!!
This is the complete discography to my knowledge, but who knows
if more will surface as time marches on ? :)
Grab this monster and add to your Discography collection !!!!!

members of Obacha and Six Brew Bantha.
That sounds about right, cause this Demo totally shreds !!!!!
I'll get more info on these guys as soon as possible.
Great new band, i'm sure there will be more to come soon by these

Number five, our final and most surprising edit and remaster
is from a band my friend Pat (who remasters all the Remasters
Series greats) randomly found on Facebook one day.
That is what I love about this blog and the internet in general,
you find stuff that's been hidden away for decades !
This band, who I don't know much about yet, played I believe
around the 87-89' years in the Detroit & Michigan hardcore scenes.
Again, what I truly love about doing a blog like this one is finding
rare gems !
This is one of those rare gems that rockets my excitement level into
outer space !
Ripping old 80's hardcore, that is straight to the point !
With that great midwest sound that brings you right back to the
These guys are kind of midwest meets early 80's Boston HC
sound, I was blown away when I first heard it !!!!!
I believe they recorded this Demo in 87', but I need to contact
the band for more information.
This Demo is just pure gold !!!!!
Fantastic rare Detroit hardcore, so damn good !!!!!
Highly highly recommended !!!!!

#4 in our Remasters Series come from the great state of Texas !
Austin powerviolence kings Chest Pain started out back in 2009
with this crusher debut !!!!!
These guys caught my attention from the start.
Brutal and angry abusive powerviolence with explosive fast and
Extraordinarily awesome demo, freshly remastered, you need
this one !!!!!
01 Yellow Noose
02 False Self
04 Shop Til You Drop
05 Reverse Baptism
06 A Lifetime of Spit and Swearing
Third in our Remasters Series is the band Far Cry from the
This band was pre-Battery, adrenalin infused straight edge !
The CD is a combination of 2 ep's: Story Of Life 7'' (1990),
and Much Time Spent Waiting 7" (1991).
My good friend Pat sent this one to me as well as some others
a while back, but just getting to putting all of them up now.
Had a million things happening, but now I have them all together
and ready to share with you all.
Remastered by Pat. He did an excellent job on this one as always !!!!!
Great early 90's DC straight edge !!!!!
