NAG – Nagged To Death (Fysisk Format)

Can’t complain, this is the right way to get ‘nagged to death’ especially when the means of doing so is by delivering us a nice slab of vinyl. It was a timely arrival too as I have been reading A… Continue Reading →

Billy Bio – Feed The Fire (AFM Records)

Believe it or not, while I may have heard of Biohazard for nearly 30 years, I have never actually listened to a single album. Sure, I’ve heard a good many songs on compilations, samplers and watched music videos, so I… Continue Reading →

Zapruder – S/T (Apathia)

“Friendship, fun and rock n roll” is the statement behind this mind-twisting album from Zapruder. At its musical heart is a mathcore style strongly reminiscent of Dillinger Escape Plan, so you can expect to be screamed at. The manic screaming… 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 →

Kevlar Bikini – Rants, Riffage and Rousing Rhythms (Geenger Records)

Grab a Kevlar Bikini, you too can look sexy in a war-zone and it’s guaranteed to confuse and distract your enemy! I can’t see such a fashion item catching on particularly but I am sure I have seen such accoutrements… Continue Reading →

Uniform – The Long Walk (Sacred Bones)

Brooklyn duo, Uniform, reached dizzying heights of success following the release of ‘Wake in Fright’ – the album received mass critical acclaim, with two tracks featuring in the newest season of Twin Peaks, and most recently the pairing teamed up… Continue Reading →

Leeched – You Took The Sun When You Left (Prosthetic Records)

For me, hardcore is one of those styles that whilst crude on the surface is not uniform and has a lot to offer. It would be too posh to call it a genre. Anger and energy stand at the centre…. Continue Reading →

Moonreich – Fugue (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions)

I wasn’t sure what a fugue is other than the fact it’s associated with Bach. Well to cut a long story short, it’s about counterpoint and repetition. The song “Frère Jacques” is an example of it through the way it… Continue Reading →

Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Back in the late eighties when Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret first let his 12 year old brother Freddy Cricien jump on stage and take the mic no one could have thought that “Madball” Freddy and his pals would still be… Continue Reading →

Truchlo Strzygi – Pora Umierac (Godz ov War)

“Black and punk metal from Poland” is the minimalist description of this one. If it’s a case of take it or leave it, I’ll take it. Time to die – well, that’s what the title means. It sounds intriguing. The… Continue Reading →

Chaos Before Gea – Chronos (Blood Fire Death)

This third album by Chaos Before Gea is a rather mixed bag and by that, I mean the Spanish quintet appear to call on a whole host of influences when styling their sound. Open track the “The Void” starts feeling… Continue Reading →
