bad-manifest

Mastering Bad Manifest “S/T” on Reagent Records and Quality Control Records.

“Slashing and snarling out of North Yorkshire town Harrogate, comes Bad Manifest. Three young skate punks raised on DIE KREUZEN, VOID and BONES BRIGADE videos, who have created a unique sound of deranged, raw, outsider hardcore punk.
While influences from the weirder side of early 80’s US hardcore shine through, there’s also a dark anarcho underbelly to this beast. Bad Manifest have clearly witnessed the intensity of UK bands of recent years like PERSPEX FLESH, MOB RULES and NO and filtered it into their adolescent skate core brains.
However, the way this thing is composed makes it no re-hash. Reverb riddled vocals and chorus soaked guitars meet rolling bass lines and catchy, eclectic drum beats. And to boot there’s timing changes that will confuse the pit and excite you into a pogo frenzy!
Listen to this on repeat while you’re skating curbs then go home and cry yourself to sleep because you wish you could have written a record like this when you were 17!” (Bryan Suddaby)

Slur 2

Mastering Slur “Demo 2015” on Quality Control HQ Records.

“New UK band channels Early Swedish Kängpunk, Finnish and Polish hardcore punk ala Destruktions, Siekiera with a touch of Mob 47. Members of Detergents, No, Good Throb, Arms Race, Obstruct, and The Flex wanted to create politically infused anti-war songs to pogo to complete with phaser pedal and stomping drums to smash the state to.

The cassette comes with a screen printed sleeve by Max Harper with art by Guillem ‘El Muro’ of Una Bèstia Incontrolable.”

DiE

Mastering DiE “Vexed” on Sonic Terror Discs.

Distributed by La Vida Es Un Mus and mixed by Jonah of Career Suicide.

“Follow up to their amazing debut from last year. 8 new tracks of nihilist and anti social hardcore punk with a sound heavy rooted in both Bristol and Boston circa 1983.”

DiE

Mastering the DiE EP on Sonic Terror Discs.

The label says:

“6 tracks of early 80’s US/UK hardcore punk worship. Nothing new here but hard blistering punk for both the angry and the jaded. Think DISCHARGE meets SSD”

Paco says:

“Probably the best debut EP a local hardcore band has produced in a long time. Intense Hard Core with nods to both Boston and Bristol. A total 6 track ripper which will surely please any ripping jams lover”

 

NO

Mastering the second 12″ from NO  on Video Disease and Static Shock Records.

“The follow up to the incredible debut from 2012, “The Great Space” finds No reaching new heights of their disastrous hardcore sound. Not for the weak. The recording is a little rawer than the last one (although definitely not verging towards raw punk) and the songs more frantic. “

 

Good Throb

Mastering Good Throb‘s new 7″.

For those of you who don’t know them read the review below and have a listen to the last one or even read an interview.

“Good Throb’s initial public offering draws from all of their previous bands’ work (the Sceptres, the Shitty Limits, Tortura et al.) in the shadows of the Nixe’s Utreg punk, with a hint of “Swiss Punk Now”, a bit of the Australian X’s burliness, but any desire for comparison is overwhelmed by a certain wall of sound and ferocity – on every instrument – that breeds a perfectly nasty sense of empathy. Empathy for a visceral breeze, for the methodical assassination of tedium, for the distilled detestation of our rosy society, and for Tesco anthems. Raw depictions of a mundane universe. (NG – Terminal Boredom)”
