I haven't got them in my hands but these records will be available from me extremely soon!




NAZI KILLER - s/t EP

Hardcore fucking punk rock from Leicester featuring members of Nothing Clean and Mangle.

This is co-released with At War With False Noise, Gronk, Kids Of The Lughole, Nuclear Mind and Samizdat Records.







SKY:LARK! - LP3 LP

Sky:Lark! is a power trio truly worthy of the name. Their third LP is a healthily noisy post-hardcore racket, like Shotmaker, Fugazi, Karp, Hoover and the like, though they transcend their influences to make something all their own. Occasional blasts of sax abound to keep you on your toes. This is the heavy, twisty and weird, like the band members.

This is limited to 250 copies and co-released with Boslevan and Records On Ribs Records.

PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI - Krig Mot Norge EP

This is the new EP from Steinar, Norway's one-man grind wunderkind and also the brains behind Brutal Blues and Psudoku. On side A of this 7" EP there are 5 heavy hardcore punk/grind tracks. On side B there are an unknown number of noisegrind songs grouped into 10 tracks. Just like on the 2017 split 7 inch with Gynekologene, this is Parlamentarisk Sodomi as a duo, with Hlgrd Kalverud on vocals.

The main themes of this release are nuclear war, cannibalism during nuclear war, sports during nuclear war, as well as sexual deviance and disease (for instance diarrhea) among politicians and other powerful people.

This is limited to 500 copies and co-released with Deaf Death Husky Records and Snack Ohm Tapes.

NOTHING CLEAN - Cheat LP

From the UK's blackened core (aka Leicester) comes Nothing Clean, whose members have spent time in such excellent outfits as Mangle, Hangover Heartattack, Diet Pills and Meatpacker. After a number of split EPs this is their first album proper, with some songs making a reappearance alongside brand new ragers. For a minimal outlay you get maximum bang for your buck with about forty songs in 20 minutes. Powerviolence is the word, bordering on grindcore at times. This is legitimately vicious, intense stuff, allowing itself little room for variation but instantly establishing this quartet as one of the Shittish Isles' finest, fastest hardcore combos. Bordering on grindcore for sure, Nothing Clean are honouring the spirit of the most insanely compact West Coast powerviolence bands of the mid-90s: Spazz and Lack Of Interest, particularly.

There are 500 copies on black vinyl. It is co-released with Abusive Noise, Circus Of The Macabre, Force Fed, Repulsive Medias, Samizdat and Vleesklak Record.

STUNTMAN / ART OF BURNING WATER - Split EP

In the dark days of 2013, Flo from the band Stuntman extended the hand of friendship across the Channel and offered Art Of Burning Water a slot at a festival he ran in an old chateau on top of a mountain in the south of France called Yellfest. AOBW had not played outside the UK and Ireland in all their long existence and so made the trek down. Great times were had by all and a pledge was made to enshrine the moment on a split release, and here it is. Stuntman hail from the south of France and make a manic, panicked type of chaotic metallic hardcore in the vein of Deadguy and Coalesce. AOBW just don't stop do they? This one features an epic one by them, melodic, soaring at times, but punk at heart. There's a Deep Wound cover too.

There are 113 copies on gold vinyl and 320 copies on black. It is co-released with Bigout, Dingleberry, Ecstatic Shock, Emergence, Jungle Khol and Wooaaaargh Records.

SIORAI GEIMHREADH - Sitting Patiently LP

A trio of unassuming brothers from Cork via County Wexford, Sora Geimhreadh (which means "Eternal Winter" in Irish and is pronounced Sheery Geevra) are now over a decade into their obscure existence. Beginning as a black metal outfit, their current sound is informed by doom and noise rock, but beholden to their own experimental impulses rather than any genre norms. Siorai Geimhreadh's approach intentionally avoids specific genre definition or stylistic markers, instead embracing a sense of openness in their playing. While their music is heavy, intense and noisy, they never strictly follow any one way of playing or attempt to work within a specific style. Instead, they work to create a style of their own through a shared intuitive method. Recent releases see the band constantly dismantling and reassembling their sound. Their 2012 tape (which intentionally was never given a name) consists of two tracks of dense, freeform noise rock. Their 2015 album "Not A Room" (released on Fort Evil Fruit) works around a single repeated pattern, drifting out of structure in a departure from previous work, creating tension through extreme repetition, subtle mumbling synthesiser and an uncanny sparseness. "Sitting Patiently" acts as a counterpoint to "Not a Room". It is a return to the more visceral work of earlier releases, transformed through a focus on freeform methods of playing. "Sitting Patiently" is a single track spread over two sides of an LP. Side A is immediate and disorienting, with frenetic playing and a raw vocal delivery. The B side sees the track find a sense of tangible structure, which proceeds to slowly drift apart as it progresses.

"Sitting Patiently" will be out on 06/04/18 and is co-released with Box Emissions and Existentiell Records.

MANGLE / FETUS CHRIST - Split 7"

The UK can be a grim place at times. Come visit Leicester and/or Hereford sometime. Mangle make the most stripped-down, zero bullshit hardcore powerviolence of any band around. A ferocious, single-minded blast of pure fury. Fetus Christ have a sense of humour, but it's still vicious, bizarre, fuzz-tinged thrashing hardcore on the verge of grinding its own head off.

Co-released by Dead Heroes, Nuclear Mind and Vleesklak Records.

26/07/17

Here is a looooooooong overdue update! Basically, the Atomck LP and Famine / Art Of Burning Water split 7" are out now, and there are a bunch of slightly older releases you should get too.





ATOMCK - Every Room In Britain LP

Atomk are a trio from the UK's wet and wild south-west. They have been plugging away for over a decade, evolving their primitive noise roots into a uniquely eccentric and offbeat brand of grindcore for thee end-tymes. "Every Room In Britain" is a 17-minute head crusher of cacophonous chaos, all furiously catchy riffs and inhumanly shrill, stuck-ape vocals with pinpoint drums that border on the chaotic.

Recorded and mixed by Boulty at Stuck On A Name Studio, on December 3rd and 4th, 2015. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Cover art by Luke Oram. Co-released by Rip Roaring Shit Storm, Made In The Meth Lab, Stop Talking, Wooaaargh and SuperFi.








FAMINE / ART OF BURNING WATER - Split 7"

Leeds versus London on this split, with killer grinding powerviolence battling war-hardened mangled hardcore. Lightning fast Leeds powerviolence trio Famine have been raising hell for a while now, toured a bunch and laid down a hell of a lot of notes. They play fast and hard grinding hardcore that stops and turns on a dime but maintains the flow and a rich sense of humour. Art Of Burning Water just dont quit with their dark, mean mangled hardcore punk. Brutal heaviness takes hardcore punk on tangents that it usually never tackles, with more ideas in 4 minutes than most bands achieve on a whole album.






And these are some older releases we didn't feature on the news page yet:





NOTHING CLEAN / ART OF BURNING WATER - Split 7"

Raging messed up powerviolence thrash from Leicester does battle with the long-running London mangled hardcore punkers (who also do a Negative Approach cover).








CROWS / BEAST AS GOD - Split 7"

Crows from Dublin, Ireland inject some much needed freshness and vitality into the metallic hardcore genre. Absolutely crushing riffs, pointed and pertinent lyrics and tastefully powerful songwriting make their three contributions to this split essential. Smart, intelligent hardcore.

Beast As God from Nottingham in the UK are something of a supergroup, combining their experience with a healthy obsession with the nineties to create a total steamroller of a track. Think Dystopia, Ire, Disembodied, Catharsis and the like and you might be in the right ballpark.








ART OF BURNING WATER - All Obedient Beasts Worship Tape

A noise and soundscape effort from the mangled hardcore mob. All sounds dissected, regurgitated and mechanically reformed using parts and sections from AOBW's noise by Wayne P and Goatface Thrilla at Wayne's yard in Brentford, West London.








CONTAINMENT / ART OF BURNING WATER - Split Tape

Containment are a hardcore band featuring people that can actually play, innovating around the different features of the genre to make something melodic, emotional and urgent. Sam used to be in Isolation Tank who we did our first split with (apart from the American Heritage / Foe one ten years previous).

AOBW supply an unreleased original track from the recording session that bore our side of the Isolation Tank split (a nice bit of Ouroborean circularity there) which sounds a bit Wipers-meets-Deftones (just my opinion) and a cover of Rudimentary Peni's "Rotten To The Core" which took us fucking ages to get right.
