Repost! Dikembe is a slightly mathy emoish band from florida. If you like more upbeat twinkle jams in vein of the bands below, download this shit right now. Their debut LP Broad Shoulders gets a little more mellow at times, but still rips.

Holy fucking shit. I was bumping these guys a few days ago and totally realized I've never posted them. Malady is another short lived project from punk superstars, Pg. 99. And when I mean short lived, I really mean it. Malady formed in 2004, put out their self-titled LP which was released on Level-Plane Records then broke up in 2005. A real shame because Malady wasn't like their other projects. The 8-song LP gives off a dark indie sound with grungy punk elements throughout. At least that's how I feel about it. See for yourself.
Members were/ are in: Pygmy Lush, Pg. 99, City Of Caterpillar, Verse En Coma, Mannequin, & many many more.
Repost! 1994! is a fucking flawless indie/punk Band from Pennsylvania. These two dudes make spectacular math-rock/screamo infused jams that are magic to your ears. The guitar has an astonishingly thick and reverb-y sound that fills the air with some tasty twangy/noodly licks that dance across the frets and awesomely full chords filled with melody, emotion and progression. The drummer is a mad-man that cranks out some technical-yet-groovy beats and switches to utter jazz-infused hardcore insanity with amazing timing and highly creative transitions. The vocals sound intense too and almost reminiscent to those of Gospel. These dudes make so much noise it flabbergasting. Driving, Intricate and Classic. It's hard to pin-point what 1994! sound like exactly, all I have to say is "It's Mindblowing!" Snag all of their shit below if you don't have these gems yet. DIG FACE! DIG.

Poland's Government Flu plays an insane mash-up of raw 80's hardcore that will surely have you hooked from the start. Their jams are fast and short with tendencies of thumping and thrashing all over the place with pummeling drums, thick, distorted punk riffs, fuzzy bass lines and harsh, straining vocals. This band tears through blazing tracks of brutal and catchy hardcore with slight rock and roll influences which adds even more flair to their overall sound. Government Flu recently dropped an incredible split 7" with Chicago's Poison Planet that absolutely rips beyond anything I've heard recently. Get on these guys right now, you won't be disappointed in the slightest. Snag the band's current discography below and DIG!!!
REPOST! This is Night Birds. Hailing from the NY/NJ area this four piece play an awesome mix of surf punk and pop. These guys are just fucking fun taking a lot of influence from old school punk. Catchy, fast, awesome! There songs give homage to old horror movies, the drive-ins that host them and surfin' hard! Just get into this! Below is their "Fresh Kills vol.1" which is a collection of all their ep 7" from '09-'11, their first LP "The Other Side Of Darkness, and their newest 7" "Maimed For The Masses". Download and DIG!

Here's some fast, hard-hitting vegan/straight-edge hardcore from Boston's Terminal Crisis. These guys and girl spit out an unapologetic demo this past winter that blew me away at first listen. Throaty female fronted vocals are grunted over pummeling drums, ugly, distorted punk riffs and fuzzed-out bass lines. This band completely owns and combines everything from blazing fastcore, d-beat and classic Boston hardcore to make an insane sound all their own. I had the privilege to see them a couple months ago in Massachusetts with RVIVR, and their live set fucking slayed. Snag their beast of a demo below and dig your face off.

Whorls is a fairly new blackened metal/punk band out of my favorite place, Denmark. If you are into the Denmark scene right now or blackened punk at all you will surely be into this band. Thier demo tape is their first output and I've been lucky enough to have been able to put it out. So thank you to the band and my buddy Rasmus. This beast of a band recently dropped a brutal new 7" this year that's an orchestrated mess of blackened metallic hardcore and it needs to be heard. It's a brutally intense release with great sound quality and even crazier tracks. Snag and Dig.
Holy Fucking Shit! I've been bumping this band's debut EP for a couple weeks and now I finally have a minute to share this godly gem to y'all. Open Letters hail from Vancouver, British Columbia and construct an aggressive, catchy and overall fun as hell blend of pop punk, indie and grungy alternative jams. This trio shares vocal duties over highly addictive tunes that are driven and creative with endless harmonies, insane drum smashing and kick-ass riffs. I can't see myself getting sick of their EP ever! Super-refreshing stuff here. No fucking doubt! Snag below, support, crank, crank, then crank it again. Dig.

Repost!! Time for some punk in the style of 80's thrash. CREEM play jamz similar to their forefathers, and what kicks ass is that they're fairly new. Driving bass, crappy guitar solos, shitty sounding drums, and lyrics about hating everything, they got it all. The spirit of punk is alive in these guys. Below is their Demo, 7", 12" EP, a live set from WFMU & a brand spankin' new EP that absolutely RIPS! Snag them.

Six Brew Bantha is a relentless grind-violence trio that hails from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. These guys are an onslaught of heavy, blazing grind that's drenched in chaotic riffs, endless blasts of drum insanity and brutal growls and shrieks. S.B.B. make an insane amount of noise and all their material is fresh and never recycled. The guitar riffs are especially tasty and fill every gap of possible silence. Everything I could hunt down from these dudes is posted below. Grind on! Dig!

Repost! Peep Philly's latest punkish supergroup, Sickoids. They'll rip you a new asshole with their strange and aggressive sounds. Sickoids fall in many categories of punk. Fast, slow, weird, hardcore, or... whatever. Just download their current discography and listen. If you're a fan of any of the bands below, you won't be disappointed.
Repost! Italy's Hierophant is just what the doctor ordered. Especially if you've come to terms that Montreal's Black Ships are most likely broken up since that haven't played a show or released any news on their whereabouts. Hierophant pick up exactly where Black Ships left off. Crusty, loud, sludgy, dark, and angry. The vocals are a little more black metal influenced, but it suits these guys well since they have elements of black metal in their songwriting. Snag their current discography below.
