Cro Mags – In the Beginning (Nuclear Blast)

Now that the naming rights have been sorted out, Harley Flanagan and Rocky George (many should know these names!) come at you with a new release which features the tracks from their two recent EP’s, namely ‘Don’t Give In’ and… Continue Reading →

Agnostic Front – Get Loud (Nuclear Blast)

The Hardcore Scene and New York go hand in hand, almost seen as true siblings, and for almost 40 years now, in one guise or another, Agnostic Front have been the forefathers, the leading light in the genre. As well… Continue Reading →

Sick Of It All – Wake the Sleeping Dragon! (Century Media)

Hardcore isn’t exclusively a New York phenomenon, but it is appropriate to the gritty city. Sick Of It All have been doing it loud and proud for 32 years, and are now on their twelfth album. If I were to… Continue Reading →

Zeke – Hellbender (Relapse)

Motorhead’s shadow cast long over Lemmy and co’s career. Punk bands especially felt an affinity for the speed fuelled balls out fury the band unleashed.  One band that were certainly ejaculated out of Snaggletooth’s hairy phallus is Zeke. Formed in Seattle… Continue Reading →

Black Anvil – As Was (Relapse)

Black Anvil’s fourth album release promises similar ferocity to its three predecessors with added atmosphere and melody which New York bands in general aren’t really known for. Normally I’d expect gritty reality and broken teeth. “As Was” is not like… Continue Reading →

Broken Teeth HC – At Peace Amongst Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

This Manchester crew has been fairly busy over the last few years releasing a slew of seven inchers to gain a name for themselves locally mainly but also nationally and beyond our shores due to touring escapades I suspect. Their… Continue Reading →

World Be Free – The Anti-Circle (Revelation Records)

My whole world has been torn apart. Scott Vogel was always the angriest man in hardcore, every subsequent Terror record reinforcing his message of disillusionment, dissatisfaction and general vitriol. It was a done deal and we all knew what to… Continue Reading →

Terror – The 25th Hour (Century Media)

Over the past 13 years Terror have carved themselves a place as hardcore heavyweights. The two original members; vocalist Scott Vogel and drummer Nick Jett, have persevered through multiple line-ups, labels, six albums, four EP’s and an almost constant touring… Continue Reading →

Survival – Shayda 1 (S/R)

Since the early 1990’s, the biggest challenge facing a new hardcore band is how to stand apart from every other hardcore band, how to be unique while retaining support of the scene. Bands remain true to the written formula, deviate… Continue Reading →

Pro-Pain – Voice Of Rebellion (SPV)

Not sure what’s going on but I normally have a big review pile of stuff that I want to cover but of late absolutely nothing really has made me want to grab it and everything’s been a bit meh. Perhaps… Continue Reading →

Birth A.D. – I Blame You (Metal Age)

It’s often rather cool when you get band members doing something a bit different from their day job. Think about all those grizzled extreme metal heads who decide deep down that they just want to strip things back and rawk… Continue Reading →

Black Anvil – Hail Death (Relapse)

I must confess from the start, I took on this band Black Anvil for review having never previously heard them, I was intrigued by them, based mainly on an old theory I had drummed into me by one of my… Continue Reading →
