The Sentenced

Picture of The Sentenced
The Sentenced hails from Denton/Fort Worth, Texas and plays a fuzzed-out and degenerate blend of hardcore insanity.  Their demo was another highlight from last year that won't stop blaring through my speakers.  Snag it below if you haven't already, it's a fucking ripper!  Dig.

Picture of Die
The United Kingdom's DiE is a thumping, snarling and primitive brand of intensely menacing hardcore.  Powerful walls of distorted bass and guitars flood over barbarian drums and vicious vocal assaults with massive success.  The band's debut was a complete rager beyond compare and now they recently dropped another destructive EP.  Snag and dig.  This is insane!!

Dangüs Tarküs

If you enjoyed Nancy's demo as much as you should have, here's some more action from some of the members.  Dangüs Tarküs is, you guessed it, some more rock'n'roll fused punk awesomeness that even combines catchy glam-rock vibes that're too baddass to dislike.  No joke, get this.  Even less of a joke, listen to the Nancy demo already!  New York continues to spill out gold.  Keep it up!  Snag below and dig.

Life Problem

Here's some urgent angst-ridden hardcore punk from Boston's Life Problem.  Their demo is a thrashing mess of raging basement punk that never lets up.  From their upbeat percussion to ripping guitar leads, this band holds it down!  I also heard the bassist was from the immensely talented Et Tu Brute, so there's that too.  Snag their debut below and hope for more soon.  Dig.

Mad Dog

NYC's Mad Dog is made up of ex-Nomos members and constructs a straight-forward-yet-furious hybrid of 80's oi punk from the UK and classic American hardcore that just goes straight for the kill.  These oddly melodic and fuzzed out jams keep a steady pace of stomping beats, crappy guitar leads, driving bass lines and ugly vocals.  Snag their debut demo below and dig.

Picture of Koward
Koward hails from the Boston area and plays a hard hitting and messy brand of destructive d-beat punk.  This outfit rages hard as hell with unstoppably forceful chord shredding, pummeling drums, muddy bass and howling grunts.  These guys just dropped a brand new release of musical intensity that you can't pass up.  Snag everything below and DIG!

Black Love

Black Love is kinda progressive, kinda 90's rock, kinda poppy, and kinda dark. There really isn't a way to describe them, but that's what I enjoy about these guys the most. They dabble in multiple genres. Peep all their releases below. Doesn't matter which, they're all pretty kick ass.

Young Offenders

Fuck. I know this might not be the most ideal post considering the lack of releases, but I need to share this with people who haven't heard about this band. Young Offenders. Awesome catchy post-punk from San Francisco. I can't find anything besides the LP that Deranged put out in 2010. It's 14 minutes of bliss and if any of our followers or someone just passing by can hook us up with some of their other releases that be raaad. For now snag their only LP, Leader Of The Followers.

DEMO CS cover art
Here is a blown-out and constant mess of raging d-beat from Georgia's Mercenary.  Non-stop drum abuse, blazing riffs, muddled bass and belted-out vocal howls.  This maniacal barbarian punk is unrelenting and loaded with layers of reverb and noise that equally meshes with constantly crashing cymbals and ugly grunts.  This demo slipped by me somehow, but snag it if you haven't indulged yet. DIG!!!!!!

Weed Hounds

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Weed Hounds plays a grungy dream-pop brand of punk that can't be denied of their awesomeness!!!  These lyrical and moody tracks are performed with endless creativity and magically instrumented bliss.  Their recently released full length almost never saw the light of day.  Let's all give thanks to this band for a moment.  Awesome downloads below... Dig!
