Lose Lose

Portland, Oregon's Lose Lose is comprised of three undeniably gifted musicians from well respected punk and hardcore backgrounds.  These dudes deliver dirty, direct and surprisingly catchy hardcore punk jams with driving riffs sprinkled with some tasty leads, plucky bass rhythms, barbaric drum beatings and gruff vocals.  Their demo is a beast.  Need more now.  Snag below and dig HARD!

Barbed Wire

Barbed Wire is a rock'n'roll fused punk band from NYC that kicks some serious ass.  These guys deliver tasty guitar licks that climb all over the place, groovy bass rhythms, driving drums and wailing cock-rock-style vocals that are gritty and forceful.  Their debut release was solid as hell and their new 7" will surely have you banging your head even harder than before.  Snag and dig.

San Diego's Heat creates a sonic assault on the senses.  This band spits out urgent and utterly pissed off hardcore punk combined with the classic So-Cal powerviolence sound.  These guys absolutely kill it on their debut tape, which was later released as a 7" treatment on Deranged Records.  This is sheer ferocity.  Get on this now.  Dig

Concealed Blade

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Concealed Blade spits out fast, fierce and unrelenting American hardcore that goes for the throat.  These guys tear through you with a barrage of rapid-fire bass and drums, blazing riffs, piercing guitar squeals and tough vocal grunts.  This band will stomp you into a pile of lifeless shit.  Snag their jams below and dig.

Half Gorilla

Half Gorilla hailed from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and constructed mammoth sounding grindcore mayhem.  From 2005-2010 these bastards delivered brutally unrelenting material mostly consisting of splits with other fellow face-melters.  Snag everything below and Dig!

Sex Prisoner

Tucson, AZ's Sex Prisoner plays a crushing and heavy-as-fuck brand of powerviolence.  Their sound is full of crunchy, hard hitting riffs, blisteringly fast drum parts, dirty bass lines and  forceful vocal grunts.  These guys are keeping the genre alive and well with their absolutely punishing material.  Since 2009 Sex Prisoner has been crushing skulls and, hopefully, won't slow down after releasing their flawless debut full length.  Snag everything below and dig!

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's N.E.G. is a fast and primitive d-beat powerhouse that doesn't fuck around.  This direct approach is straight to the point with walls of ripping guitar chords, pummeling drum delivery, muddy bass tones and howling vocals.  The band's demo was solid but their follow up tape is a fucking bruiser.  Get on this now.  Dig!
