MASSHYSTERIVar Del Av Stan LP
Comprised of 3/4 of The Vicious, including Sara of (I)NC and Doughnuts fame, Masshysteri pick up where they left off from their 7", with a full-length worth of melodic, mid-tempo punk songs that go back to the early Los Angeles sound with all lyrics delivered in Swedish.
CRIMINAL DAMAGE - No solution LP
This Portland, OR band plays punk rock akin to No Hope For The Kids. Sounding something like a very early ‘80s English punk band that would have had a release on No Future Records, such as Attack. Melodic punk rock with rough vocals that sound almost too slow. Criminal Damage features the drummer of Tragedy playing guitar in Criminal Damage.
AARITILA - Ennen Huomista, Tänä Tuomiopäivänä LP
Featuring former and current members of such legendary Finnish bands as Riistetyt, Totalitar, and Meanwhile, Aaritila bring nineteen tracks of pure raging hardcore punk that sound like a throwback to 1983, with plenty of speed and not a word of English. The sound could be compared to both Riistetyt and Totalitar, as Aaritila use a lot of the same influences and styles.
INEPSY - No Speed Limit For Destruction LP
3rd LP/CD by these canadian road warriors. They came out of nowhere with a fresh sound, stuck to it for their second LP, and turned up the filthy rock influences on this third one. More TANK, more KISS, less D-beat. Still the same old band though. Great production as usual, characteristic artwork, and a solid release.
LA CRISI - II - Tutti a pezzi LP
Wow, raging hardcore punk with fierce and furious vocals and an unrelenting breakneck pace. It has a classic sound without borrowing from any band in particular, which I feel is oh-so-rare. Pair that with a charismatic singer with a truly singular personality and voice and you have something really special.
