Above is a stream of "Wrong" one of 7 new songs from Florida hardcore band Crisis Unit's second release and follow up to their excellent demo released in April earlier this year, which you can download from a previous post here. The band continues to play straight up hardcore punk that brings to mind the intense energy of band's such as Count Me Out, Striking Distance and Stop And Think. You can preorder/purchase a copy of the tape, which will be the first release on new Florida hardcore label Please Your Case records at the link below, and make sure to keep an eye out for the band as there is much promise for things to come.

Overlooked 2014 Releases You NEED To Check Out: Part 3

Here is the third and final installment of our "Overlooked 2014 Releases" series. Apologies to those of you who may feel like we missed some stuff, but we did as best as we could.

With so many new albums being released in 2014 it's very easy to overlook great albums without even realizing it. To help change that, we will be closing out 2014 with a three part series (one per month) in which we'll be creating a list of 2014 releases we feel are extremely overlooked while being extremely enjoyable. Whether you feel these releases are overlooked or not is beside the point, main post of this series is for awesome releases to get checked out.
-----------

New Gods "What Did I Say?"
New Gods continuing their fury of putting out some of the best fuzz induced, uncontrollable head bobbing, and free thinking Punk in the US. If you're into Punk that will make you want to throw on some long johns and play Tony Hawk Pro Skater all day, this is the EP for you. Seattle doing what Seattle does best.

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------


Rort "Warpath"
Honestly surprised I haven't seen more people sharing the hell out of this LP. After releasing a 7" in 2008, Australia's Rort finally unleashed their 14 track full length in June of 2014. Absolutely punishing Death Metal infused Hardcore/Grindcore. If you're a fan of bands like Nails, Mammoth Grinder or if you're just a fan of in your face Buzzsaw Guitars, check this out asap.

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------

Pharaoh "Negative Everything"
You'd think with a major DIY label like A389 Records releasing this full length you'd see more people freaking out over it, but in true Pharaoh fashion another one of their releases have fallen in the "extremely overlooked" category. Negative Everything is a must hear for fans of Doom, Sludge, or just Metal in general. It is without question the best material Pharaoh has ever released. Looking forward to seeing what's to come of Pharaoh in 2015 and beyond.

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------
Response "Demo"
If Youth Of Today and Negative Approach had a baby and moved to California it would be known as Response. Demo features four blazing tracks, band features current/ex members of In Control, Stoic Violence, Disapproval, and More.

Bandcamp
-----------

Coffin Birth "Necrotic Liquefaction"
Lets close this list out with one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. I personally have never heard of Coffin Birth before this EP was released and I wish I have heard them prior to this. Fans of Hatred Surge/Insect Warfare should make it a point to check this EP out as soon as possible.

Nervous-Tour Demo

2014

Tracklist:

1.The Future
2.Lapse



Oakland, California band Nervous follows up their excellent 2013 LP with 2 new songs from a tape they've recently had with them on tour. Like the aforementioned LP, these are two explosive and aggressive punk/hardcore songs  that perfectly channel the angst of golden era 90's bands such as Nirvana and Sonic Youth while adding their own dose of bay area hardcore fury. Highly recommended.

Gross- "Tomorrow I Will Fall In Love" Promo

2014

Tracklist:

1.Low Windows
2.Here I Am
3.Close Circle



Grimey Orlando, Florida hardcore punk/powerviolence band Gross is back with 3 new songs that will appear on a future 7 inch that's yet to be recorded, and frankly this flat out rips. These 3 new songs are the best recordings from the band to date, 3 raw and uncompromising punk/hardcore songs that show a ton of promise for what's to come from the band. Falling somewhere between Ceremony's older material and a mix of Hoax and Iron Lung, the band tears through this new material that proves to be their best to date. Gross are one of the best punk/hardcore bands active in Florida currently in my opinion, and this tape doesn't show any signs of that changing anytime soon. Highly recommended for fans of all the aforementioned bands.

Review: Ex Breathers-ExBx

2014

Florida band Ex-Breathers have made an interesting habit of mashing the most chaotic and volatile elements of punk and hardcore with it's most forward thinking, at times sounding like an unholy amalgamation of bands as varied as Botch, Fugazi and Wire and sounding just as intriguing and downright crazy as that description would suggest. ExBx is the band's new 7 inch release and the strongest representation of their unique sound to date, as the band rips through 12 songs in just over 11 minutes.




Admittedly there is quite a bit to take in in those 11 minutes. As each song seamlessly transitions into the next, this record swells with an urgency and admirable passion. The band's dual vocals are shouted/sang over quick bursts of technical punk/hardcore that are immediately impactful, thanks to plenty of memorable guitarwork throughout and an outstanding rhythm section. It's rare that a band can make music this chaotic and catchy at the same time, and it doesn't take long for the songs on this record to ingrain themselves in your brain. While the band's past splits as well as their excellent 2012 full length Collision showed an insane amount of promise as far as the band being onto a sound that's truely unique and special, ExBx marks a huge step forward for them and one that will undoubtfully turn many heads as time goes on. Highly recommended for any fan of heavy music that's also forward thinking. Below you'll find an entire stream of the record courtesy of the band's bandcamp page, as well as ordering info for the physical 7 inch.

Review:Homewrecker-Circle Of Death

2014

Two years ago when their debut LP Worms And Dirt dropped, Ohio band Homewrecker proved themselves to be one of the heaviest and most devastating bands around, with a blistering combination of holy terror influenced metallic hardcore and powerviolence that had a penchant for immediate impact. It proved to be an insanely potent combination of sounds, and Worms And Dirt received quite a bit of much deserved praise as well as quite a bit of rotation for me personally, and it ended up being one of my most listened to records in 2012.Now in 2014 the band has returned with Circle Of Death, their second LP and first recordings with their new/slightly retooled lineup.





The crushing metallic force that made the band so appealing in the first place is front and center in Circle Of Death, an album filled to the brim with pure destruction and rage. From the opening intro "Forced Under" to the minute of feedback that closes the record, the band lays waste to virtually everything in their path, sharing vocal duties while playing a vicious brand of metallic hardcore that takes equal ques from thrash titans like Slayer as well as the old school death metal sounds of bands such as Bolt Thrower or Obituary, and finally a mixture of hardcore sounds that remind of Integrity's most seminal albums as well as the newer mixture of powerviolence and straight up hardcore that bands such as Weekend Nachos have perfected. This combination of sounds makes for one of the most intense albums of the year in terms of sheer force and weight, one that's also packed with plenty of memorable moments. Much like Worms And Dirt before it, Homewrecker have once again released one of the most engaging metallic hardcore records in 2014, and a most listen for any fan of the genre.

Review:The Coltranes-Cat Of Nine Tails

2014


California punk/hardcore/noise stalwarts The Coltranes have been quite prolific since their inception in late 2009. Along the way, they have evolved into a truely menacing force within the punk scene, playing volatile and energetic live sets that turn the heads of anyone who see's them. I was lucky enough to witness the band in Tampa, Florida earlier this year when they jumped on a local show happening in the area while they were on tour, and after their live show I made it a point to seek out all of their material. Cat Of Nine Tails is the band's latest 4 song EP, and continues down their own unique path of destruction that's also coupled with the best recording of the band to date.





For those unfamiliar, The Coltranes play a very noise rock influenced form of hardcore punk that also happen to be built around some incredibly catchy guitarwork as well. Their sound recalls bands such as The Jesus Lizard, Pissed Jeans and Unsane while still adding their own unpredictable and unique spin on things. Cat Of  Nine Tails rips from from start to finish, and the recording is the best I've heard from any of the bands many releases to date, one that perfectly captures the raw intensity and energy of the band but still with an excellent level of clarity. These recordings also show the band in a more aggressive and intense form than ever before, matching the impressive feeling I got when I saw the band live earlier this year. It's a record that will hopefully turn more people onto the band, and I recommend anyone who is into uncompromising punk music checks this band out immediately. You can download most of their earlier material from their bandcamp ,and preorders for the physical version can be found below via SPHC records.

Overlooked 2014 Releases You NEED To Check Out: Part 2

As promised, here's part two of the three part "Overlooked 2014 releases" series to close out the year.

With so many new albums being released in 2014 it's very easy to overlook great albums without even realizing it. To help change that, we will be closing out 2014 with a three part series (one per month) in which we'll be creating a list of 2014 releases we feel are extremely overlooked while being extremely enjoyable. Whether you feel these releases are overlooked or not is beside the point, main post of this series is for awesome releases to get checked out. Part One can be found here.

-----------
Left Astray "Don't Look At Me"
Released digitally in August of this year, "Don't Look At Me" continues the trend of Southern California's Left Astray putting out some of my favorite Hardcore music from the area. Personally feel this band is getting leaps and bounds better each release, but you can be the judge of that. "Don't Look At Me" will be seeing a proper vinyl release through Black Circle Press extremely soon.

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------

Kringe "Demo 2014"
Awesome new band hailing from Minneapolis, best way to describe it "pogo-y" punk you would normally find out of NYC ala Hank Wood & The Hammerheads. Highly encouraged to check out.

Bandcamp
-----------

Vein "Self Titled"
One of the biggest surprises of 2014 thus far has been Vein's self titled EP. Absolutely phenomenal band from Western Massachusetts in vein (no pun intended) of Converge, Botch, and The Dillinger Escape Plan (with some Graf Orlock, in my opinion). Will be shocked if this band isn't huge by next year.

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------

Keeper "MMXIV"
Another big surprise coming out of California. CVLT Nation said it best "MMXIV, their first record, is so unrelentingly heavy it borders on the inexplicable. The band has taken a number of obvious cues for their chose sonic craft. Of course bands like Burning Witch, Grief, Noothgrush and Moloch can all be heard here in spades, their influences weave themselves in and out of each slow, misery-sodden riff and wretched, throat-gnawing vocal." 

Facebook // Bandcamp
-----------

Afraid Of Life "Demo"
Texas is extremely known for pumping out its share of great Hardcore bands, so to see another new band added to the list is always a good sight. Afraid Of Life play Hardcore in vein of Chokehold, One King Down, and Snapcase. You may try and write them off due to "everyone and their mother playing in vein of 90's Hardcore/Metalcore right now" but I strongly suggest checking this release out. Two songs total and are an extremely great start for this new band. Very excited to see what 2015 and beyond holds for them.

Bandcamp
-----------
The third and final installment of this series is slated to hit the site sometime in December (likely sometime between the 1st and 12th, don't hold me to that though). Keep an eye out and make sure to support the bands listed in these.

Review: Full Of Hell-Full Of Hell/Merzbow

2014

In the roughly year and a half since Full Of Hell released their second full length, 2013's excellent Rudiments Of Mutilation, and the band has certainly been busy:consistently touring all over the world,turning heads with their notoriously vicious live presence and building into a name now instantly recognized by a wide spectrum of extreme music fans from all sides of the fence. The band's lethal combination of raging powerviolence, grindcore, blackened death metal and harsh noise has been honed and sharpened to perfection as they have developed as a band, and they've emerged with a sound that can truely be claimed as wholly their own and one that makes them stand out among their like minded peers. Rudiments saw a massive amount of growth for the band 2011's Roots Of Earth Are Consuming My Home, and there is a similar growth in Full Of Hell/Merzbow, their third LP which proves to be their most ambitious and sonically devastating release to date.





As the title would suggest, Full Of Hell's new full length is also a collaboration record with the legendary and ridiculously prolific Japanese noise artist Merzbow. With a staggering amount of material and years of dedication to his craft, Merzbow is one of the most widely renowned and well known purveyors of noise, and his penchant for the genre paired with the band's  is a perfect match. Musically, the band is as heavy and volatile as ever, blasting out harrowing bursts of grind/powerviolence and occasionally slowing the pace to a slow and sludge ridden crawl, while vocally layering their assault with a mix of black and death metal esque vocals that coalesce into one of the most menacing and evil sounds I've ever heard a band of any genre achieve. Along with the faster more grindcore driven material, it's a real treat whenever the band decides to really slow things down, especially on "High Fells", a true standout on the album that brings to mind the crushing force of classic earlier Neurosis material such as Through Silver In Blood and Times Of Grace. The track shows the band continuing to evolve and reach into other extreme genres, leaving their own unique mark on them as they carry through. Another break in the pace comes earlier in the album in the midpoint track "Thrum In The Deep" which opens with a decidedly 90's era angular hardcore riff that brings to mind flashbacks of the hardcore punk fury the band displayed on their 2011 debut Roots Of Earth.




It's also important to note that the Full Of Hell/Merzbow collaboration is the band's first release for Profound Lore Records, and that the compact disc version of the record that comes out this November will come with a bonus disc "Sister Fawn" that is essentially a flip in the amount of contribution from each artist. While the main album is essentially a Full Of Hell record written around Merzbow's contribution, Sister Fawn is the opposite, with the band lending their talents to 5 songs crafted by the  Japanese noise legend himself. It's easily some of the most engaging Merzbow material I've heard in years, and something all fans of harsh noise will certainly want to hear as soon as possible. The two albums work very well together in succession, and are a clear indicator that Full Of Hell have come ever closer to fully envisioning the bleak sounds they first started crafting in their inception of a band. In fact, it's very rare to see a band evolve and progress this far in such a short amount of time. Full Of Hell/Merzbow is simply the band's heaviest, harshest and best written material to date, and by far one of the best extreme music albums of any genre to drop this year. It's an album that will continue to turn even more heads as extreme music fans from all corners will be able to appreciate the madness that is unfolding here. Another high watermark for one of extreme music's best current bands.
