The debut from this chicago quartet. Guitar, bass, drums, singing…and a gong (not constantly, although that would be awesome, just on one song) in the vein of bands you may or may not have ever heard of or care about. Rhythmic, dischordant-yet-melodic, slightly obtuse, rock music from a group of people who’ve spent time in bands like- Fourth Rotor, He Who Corrupts, Locks, Killsadie, My Lai, Iron Reminders, Kung Fu Rick, and V. Reverse to name a few. 6 tracks from 97-Shiki and a cover song from Carburetor Dung; Opression but with their very own style. Bonus with Bahasa Melayu translation!

Complete discography in one tape, include their full length LP, split LP with Piece of Mind, various track from compilation, demo tape and 2 unreleased songs.

Battle of Wolf from London offering some blistering and heavy as fuck tracks from their The Death Of Affect LP as well as their split 7″ with Kaddish & Singaia and the songs from Emo Annihilation comp. and 1 unreleased song.

THE BLACK HEART REBELLION – monologue tape[utarid tapes] RM 7 / RM8ppd
The Black Heart Rebellion is one of the most promising bands to come out of the Belgian hardcore scene in the last couple of years. Their sound is greatly influenced by instrumental bands like Red Sparowes and Mogwai, combined with the dark atmosphere of bands like Cult of Luna and Isis and the screaming intensity of bands like Amanda Woodward. By using visual effects at their shows and by making all the artwork themselves, The Black Heart Rebellion attempts to turn every record and every live performance into a full-fledged assault on your eyes, eardrums and those tiny hairs on the back of your neck.

BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS – mannheim live tape (qsd records) RM 7 / RM8ppd
First live album by this German monster also known as B.SON who playing dark sludge, this live tape are going to be different from their previous releases. NOT for the weak at heart. over 60 minutes of post-metal , drone and experimental doom

BÖKANÖVSKY – s/t tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd
French emotional hardcore punk that reminds bands like HYACINTH, URANUS or some 90’s French emo hardcore bands. 6 songs of passionate, angry, sad and political emo hardcore with great jangly guitar bits we all know and love!

BOLZ’N – spaltfunktion tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd
Blast! More or less accidentally I discovered this four piece as they played a gig in my town and the description sounded somewhat interesting… and BOLZ’N (an abbreviated form of the German word for either “bolt” or “to slam” ) rip your head off, dammit! Technical, hectical, twisted and intense Grindcore / Mathcore of such a ferocity which pulverizes quite some of the bands of a similar style on Relapse. The band is described as being somewhere between DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and CREATION IS CRUCIFIXION which is not too far off the point – I would also throw in PIG DESTROYER and DISCORDANCE AXIS to round up the picture a bit. The special thing with BOLZ’N is, however, that they definitely focus on an utterly brutal hybrid of complex modern Grindcore with jazzy technicality and odd time signatures. Much to my joy the band does not showcase any audible traces of Hardcore but focuses on their demanding own style, which also incorporates the skilled (! – as it is not the norm with many brutal groups) use of samples here and there. One further special thing is the seethingly aggressive vocal delivery of the front woman, ranging from high screeches to manic screams as well as mid-ranged grunting. I must really say that this band obviously outshines some of their influences by far.

CHANNEL X – come again tape (whatever it takes records) RM 7 / RM8ppd
This Klang based youthcrew hardcore bring you 6 great positive youthcrew anthem, play 88 style hardcore with a Strong spirit , heavily influence by Chain Of Strength, Youth Of Today , Bold , Unity and Standard Issue.

COKEBUST – washington DC straight edge tape [revulsion records] RM 7/RM 8ppd
20 songs, tracks taken from Cycle of Violence tape, Fuck Bar Culture 7″ and Demo Recording sesssion back on 2006. All in one tape. Fast hardcore in the vein of Infest and the like.”Rooted in the nation’s capital, Coke Bust play fast, pissed, DC straight edge hardcore that straight don’t give a fuck. Influenced by Infest and Youth of Today, this EP delivers 6 blasts of pure thrashing hardcore punk. It follows their killer demo 7″ but adds even more of a pissed-off attitude with negative lyrics. Speed has a lot to do with Coke Bust’s aesthetic. The entire album lasts only four-and-a-half minutes. “We try to take modern hardcore and speed it up,” says Nick Candela (a.k.a. Nicktape) of Coke Bust’s methodology. They’ve played numerous shows in the DC area with bands like Blank Stare, Harm’s Way, Weekend Nachos, and Sick Fix, some of hardcore’s heaviest hitters.”

COMADRE – a wolf ticket tape (puremind records) RM 7 / RM8ppd
With plenty of passion and intensity, San Francisco, CA’s Comadre tear through eight tracks on this EP, bringing more politics and urgency expressed through a hardcore sound that mixes the desperation of ’90s Ebullition bands like Orchid and Portraits Of Past with the aggression of Catharsis and touches of the speed of traditional hardcore.

COTIDIE MORI – s/t tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd

DAÏTRO – discography tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd
This tape consisted 4 years of hardwork from Daïtro including the split with Ampere , Raein , Sed Non Satiata , tour 7″ and Laisser Vivre Les Squelettes LP . more than 60 minutes of flowing emotion felt with each strum of the guitar and crackled scream, beautiful guitar and bass harmonies back elegant spoken word, which is eventually intertwined into a more dramatic and heavy section. The drumming compliments the all song perfectly with nothing flashy, or dull for that matter.

DAÏTRO – y tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd
The latest album by Daitro from France, Lyon . A totally perfect blend of Post Rock, Hardcore and Rock’n Roll where it prooves that there are still some bands that hold the very core of Punk Rock that French Emo has really held back in the days are still alive. Bands like these guys, Sed Non Satiata and even the more atmospheric, kind of post-metal-ish Aussitot Mort (all from France) are really pushing the screamo sound to new territories.

DYING IN MOTION / FULL CHIN – split tape (utarid tapes) RM 7 / RM8ppd
Dying in Motion is a screamo/HC band from Zürich who blow you away. in the vein of french school (think Belle Epoque, Mihai Edrisch, Daïtro and the like), they’re playing a not so often heard brand of agressive, cathartic, errrm, blues. kidding. some call it violent emo, but that’s just another not-so-close- drawer for an unclassifiable style. the topics hansi screams his lungs out about are mostly of instrospective nature. Full-Chin is one man folk punk from Yokohama, Japan. This is beautiful!

DISCO VOLANTE – blood on the walls tape (revulsion records) RM 6/RM 7ppd
Awesome rock n roll punk as fuck out of the dirty cities of Sweden, loads of great guitar leads and from times really fucking angry screamed vocals which are combined with some slower stuff as well, totally recommended kickass punk fucking rock.

Crust/hardcore from Lidköping. Twelve songs of total fury! Full length album recorded at HoboRec, Jönköping. The songs are mixed with slower parts, which keeps the record as a whole interesting and focused. As on a prime note; crustpunk has never – and will never be – better than this. Think Totalt Jävla Mörker mixed with Neurosis!

This discography is a collection tape was made by a group of people who lived very far from each other but managed to meet up every so often to play music and hang out and became pretty good friends, you can hear some of the 90′s emo vibe in their songs and very Saetia-esque for some reason.

A One AM Radio vs Jerome’s Dream styled split here, with one side really mellow and the other a chaotic mess. Torrential Downpour play on the first side is a one man project of Jeremy Vavrik. It’s lo-fi acoustic stuff, On the other side are Parrhesia, who sound more like Orchid and Reversal Of Man.

PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI – har du sagt “a” får du si “nal” tape [revulsion records] RM 7/RM 8ppd
Parlamentarisk Sodomi is on the loose and this vicious grindcore vigilante is poised to bring about the collapse of Norway’s political landscape through a rampage of rear entry and sexual subjugation of its figureheads, whilst simultaneously destroying all preconceptions of one man bands by ejaculating the most radical crusty punked up grind heard in the last decade! This is masterful old school grindcore full of swarming buzzsaw riffing, incredibly powerful and tight as fuck drumming, razor-sharp rhythm shifts, neanderthal bellowing growls, venomous shrieking and more circle pit inducing crossover skank sections than a young Mitch Harris could ever dream of!! Parlamentarisk Sodomi is the perfect amalgamation of Repulsion, Napalm Death, Righteous Pigs, Captain Cleanoff, Disrupt, Assuck, His Hero Is Gone and Terrorizer, sounding like a genuine lost gem from the late 80’s but with the freshness and individuality to stand above the rest of the new wave of old school grinders!

QUEST OF QUASAR – nok-tur-nal tape [revulsion records] RM 7/RM 8ppd
This is pretty much what you might get if you mix some His Hero Is Gone/Uranus dark and heavy type of hardcore with some French scream/emo. It is heavy, dark and emotive with just a little bit of metal thrown in the mix. It is a pretty volatile mix of modern hardcore and will serve as a good soundtrack for the upcoming apocalypse. No joke. You don’t play this to get the people dancing happily on the dance floor. You play this to get people all pumped up about the end of this fucked up world. With all the bullshit that happening around us, who wouldn’t get pumped about the Armageddon? – Dead Pigs Zine

RAEIN – ogni nuovo inizio tape [dance tonight record] RM 8/RM 10ppd
this is the Tape version of the new RAEIN lp, The new record is a long song splitted into 6 parts, and personally it’s some of the best stuff raein ever did! three guitars plus a thousand vocals equals chaotic, rockish, tangled but still beautifully melodic screamo, for fans of city of caterpillar, portraits of past.

ROBOTOSAURUS – manhater tape (utarid tapes) RM 6/RM 7ppd
Progression is described as an onward or forward movement. ROBOTOSAURUS have taken action and pushed through the barriers of heavy music to create the next extreme in sonic defilement. “Manhater”, their dark, crushing, and frantic debut album.

SEE YOU IN HELL – utok! tape (Sukma Records/Pissed Off) RM 6/RM 7ppd
Another in a long line of high energy releases from Czech Republic’s SEE YOU IN HELL. Eight songs of everything that makes you to love them: speed, agility, hooks and near cryptic lyrics that challenge you to question everything that goes on around you while giving you the feeling that everything could be alright if we apply ourselves. The lyrics are printed in English and are accompanied by a collage of b/w show flyers. If this is your first time reading P.E. you should get ahold of issue 52/53 and check out the SEE YOU IN HELL Japanese tour diary. These guys are awesome!

SISTA SEKUNDEN – don’t blame us! tape (revulsion records) RM 6/RM 7ppd
Sista Sekunden shows Sweden once more how it can be fun to play hardcore, recycling OUTLASTS old saying “Positive hardcore positive youth” there follow-up to there debute record is way more melodic and with more chorus and sing-a-long parts. They have collected just as much influences from CAREER SUICIDE, OUTLAST of course and even early DESCENDENTS. This is the best record with modern hardcore out of Sweden since OUTLASTS above mentioned album – perhaps even better then that now classic record. The thing that relly makes SISTA SEKUNDEN to stick out is that they sing in swedish. SISTA SEKUNDEN brings energy and positivity back in the hardcore scene. 13 really good tracks (included a DESENDENTS cover sung in swedish). A modern classic!

SLIGHT SLAPPERS – vinyl collection 1995-2001 tape (get pumped! tapes ) RM 7 / RM 8 ppd
Slight Slappers are a fucking fast powerviolence band hailing from Tokyo, Japan since 1995. They play some hectic tight treble induced grind, the singer has a mighty screachy voice on him. Yet still very very good melodies and song stuctures, really interesting. You wont hear any breakdowns here, nothing but the best for this band.

SMG/CARCASS GRINDER – split tape (revulsion records) RM 6/RM 7ppd

Leave it to Malaysia to kick out the jams with some sick fucking thrash. From the demo’s title of Blasting Your Silly Head, to the cover image of a guy’s head exploding from within, to lyrics like ” We urge for all ages crew / We force for all ages crew / ALL AGES CREW”, to covers of WHAT HAPPEN NEXT? and DS-13, these guys have all their bases covered. Another outstanding addition to the history of Southeast Asian thrash and hardcore. Killer.

TOWERS – s/t tape (protagonist records) RM 8/RM 9ppd
This is the cassette version of TOWERS full length vinyl release from late 2007 (on Electric Human Project and Turnstile). This Philadelphia band has been touring like crazy over the last few years, and has opened peoples eyes to some seriously outrageous tunes. A mid-paced abrasive psychedelic nightmare as demonstrated through the sonic fury of TOWERS. While one could claim that they draw influences from band names like GASP, DEADGUY, PG.99 and OLD MAN GLOOM / older ISIS, the band’s real influences come from themselves and a DIY punk-as-fuck mindset in general. They strive to write songs, put out records, go on tours, and repeat a seemingly never ending cycle. This is the true influence on the existence of the band… and these guys are doing it better than almost any others out there! Highly recommended!

UNHOLY GRAVE – revoltage tape (get pumped! tapes ) RM 6 / RM 7 ppd
Fuck yes, a new studio album from Japans reigning Grindcore kings UNHOLY GRAVE!!! All new songs, 23 tracks including the intro and outro, recorded in DIY style for a true old school sound.

This CD will leave you devastated.

Formed with three Norwegian musicians from the band Briskeby (with whom KS scored a top 5 hit in Norway with “Joe Dallesandro”, a duet with their singer Lise Karlsnes), The Disciplines have already enjoyed in Norway hit singles, a TV feature, and full page features in the biggest daily newspapers—with their album “SMOKING KILLS” and Freak Music put out the Malaysian Edition CD.

SPIRES – flowers and fireworks CD (pissart records) [ RM 15/RM 12ppd ]
These guys sound sort of like Mesa Verde, which means this fairly impressive LP is sitting in the shadow of The Old Road. Their differentiating point is that they much prefer working with harmonic minor and trying to sound slightly evil and menacing among all of the epic builds rather than sweet and wistful. They really aren’t that original but bring solid music nonetheless.

SUIS LA LUNE – quiet, pull the string! CD (ape must not kill ape records) [ RM25 ]
The debut album from this young band from Sweden. Suis La Lune sometimes sounds like a lost gem of the mid 90s: melodic interludes, jangly guitars, quiet/loud parts, desperate vocals that is ranging between talky rantings and intense screaming.
