“¡Al fin! Tras una buena temporada quemando zapatilla en directo y publicando singles potentes, como el EP compartido con Fantasmage, los alicantinos Futuro Terror se estrenan con su primer larga duración. Sudor, garra y corazón, un artefacto que el mismo Cholo Simeone pondría antes de mandar a los suyos al campo. Actitud, guitarras abrasivas, batería a toda hostia y el pogo como elemento confluyente, esto es lo que te espera con el LP de los Futuro Terror. Una avalancha de riffs acompañan todo el disco y resultan perfectos para saltar con puño en alto en garitos oscuros y mal olientes de techos bajos. Pulsaciones a mil, efervescencia a flor de piel y saliva a mansalva en un trabajo que se resume en una sóla palabra P-U-N-K.”

“BETON COMBO – Sound LTD aka The High On War 7″ (STATIC AGE MUSIK)
A mandatory reissue of three of the finest tracks West-Berlin Hardcore Punk had to offer in 1983. It is about time this gem of a 7” was finally reissued. Uncompromising HC Punk with a killer production that is raw yet powerful! “High on War” has got to be one of the best songs by any German Punk band in the 80s, but the other two songs are great, too. The packaging on this one is pretty deluxe and really does the music justice: The EP comes in a heavy silk screened cardboard sleeve, a printed dust sleeve, plus an insert with liner-notes by Tom Schwoll (Zerstörte Jugend etc.). Here is your chance to pick this one up at a normal price 31 years after it originally came out! ( Flo Heart First )”

“Boston Anarcho Punks No Sir I Won’t return with their 4th record, Shit and in my opinion their best. Made up of ex and current members of Surrender Libyans, Witches With Dicks, Shithead, Brain Killer and Foreign Objects.
5 brand new songs of relentless, political punk. Where NSIW wear their Flux Of Pink Indians/ Conflict and Crass influences on their sleeves, they breathe new life into what had maybe become a stale genre.
No Sir, I Won’t play revolutionary anarcho-punk without plagiarism, but developed into a modern form. This is anarcho-punk at it’s finest, music like this makes you want to change the world. Exhilarating and thought-provoking, if you don’t like a message in your music this is not for you. No Sir I Won’t might just be one of the most important bands around.”

Mastering Sissy “EP”.
Taken from Nialler9:
“‘You know this battle can only be won if we are on our knees.’ Unidentified priest.
So begins the short debut EP from new Dublin rock band Sissy (featuring members of Fag Enablerz and Putrefaction), before launching into ‘Sail & Rail’, a song about going to England to get an abortion with Enya which steals the melody from her song ‘Orinoco Flow’. “Stick your dick in me so I can go on holidays / 2 Obstetricians and a G.P / won’t tell me I’m not going on holidays,” the band sing to a lo-fi bockety catchy rock arrangement cheerily.
The 11-minute EP is heavy on the sarcasm but with a realistic feminist motivation. ‘No Mickey On The Mouse’ is similarly humorous in its delivery and anti-patriarchal in its outlook – a singalong song for kicking against the pricks delivered with a potent garage-rock shuffle. Ditto ‘Nothing’ – “nothing tastes as shit as getting treated like nothing feels.”
It’s a short release but Sissy have lots of character, plenty to say and funny and fun ways to say them.”

“NO MORE ART finally delivers a long-awaited full-length after multiple releases, including a split 7″ with DOOM TOWN on Man In Decline, multiple singles, and a demo. The new LP, entitled “Sorrows of Youth” contains 8 songs that build on the formula of their earlier releases: surf-drenched early punk with female lead vocals and lots of melody. Think DANGERHOUSE records, The ADOLESCENTS, and MASSHYSTERI. Guitarist, Will Kinser, was a member of RED DONS and that influence comes through as well. Listen below for a sample of what to expect. This is, by far, their strongest material to date and we’re honored to be releasing it.”

“In my opinion, Criminal Code need no introduction. If you are not familiar so far, let Daniel Vandenberg explain this band for you! Criminal Code from Tacoma, Washington, play an anthemic, sneakingly melodic mixture of post-punk and cacophony of raw wavy punk. Formed in 2011, they’ve just released several 7“s and their debut LP No Device on Deranged Records, a welcome shot in the vein (or kick in the teeth) to an increasingly ethereal genre. They took their Husker Du/Greg Sage influences and made it their own unique sound. The new 7“ harkens back to the raw, stripped down and primal intensity that characterised the early days of post punk, back when it was still considered just punk, only punk that was a little off and slightly more unsettling than usual. Criminal Code straight rip and rock with an urgency and rabid junkieunpredictability that was traded in long ago when post punk started investing wholeheartedly in synthesisers and chorus pedal collections and diverting down broodier pathways to goth and whatever-wave. Criminal Code are a perfect mess of contradictions, simultaneously full-bodied and forceful, and cold, distant and washed-out, like a hardcore heart in pale post punk skin, or vice versa. While specifically for Criminal Code’s European tour, the EP neatly coheres and expands on their Husker Du Over A Cliff guitars and post-post (post) Wipers despair/rage. Snag the EP on tour and dig hard!”
