Gasp are an often overlooked powerviolence band that came of age with the likes of Spazz, Man is The Bastard, No Comment and others during the 90's powerviolence scene. Their sound was a combination of sludge, dissonant feedback, tape manipulation, and delayed guitars. Creating a marvelous soundscape that noone has ever been pull off. Here is what Chris Dodge (bassist for Spazz, Despise You and owner of the now defunct label, Slap a Ham records) had to say about Gasp in a great article about the 90's powerviolence scene:

[Drome Triler was] another unappreciated album when it came out. It seems like people are just now showing an interest posthumously. Their early stuff was more straightforward grind, and they eventually progressed into whacked-out psychedelic noise. They broke up soon after the LP was released. Cynthia, who was the original Gasp bass player, is doing vocals for Despise You now.

Harpoon Guns

Fast garage-y hardcore from Southern California. This rules! Shit's Rockin. They have three 7"s and an LP. I don't know too much about these guys but its well worth checking out. If you know any more about these dudes post a comment. Check out their myspace, some info there.

Mentally Challenged / Men's Interest

Fairly new band from the Boston area featuring the lead guitarist from Mind Eraser (They sound nothing like Mind Eraser). This is pretty rad. It's noisy, dark, gloomy, blah blah blah~ Hardcore punk. It's pretty similar to Sex/Vid and Cold Sweat, while drawing main influences from 80s hc like Void. It's not your typical run of the mill hc, that's for sure. They've had a few tiny releases so far on Deerhealer, Painkiller, and some self released shit. I believe they have a few tapes, 7"s at the painkiller store, and they have a CD titled "Year One" which has all of their songs they've put out so far (which is what I'm going to upload). Grab all of their shit before it becomes ebay gold. The picture is from their demo tape.

The myspace

Mentally Challenged - Year One

Another new band from the Boston area is Men's Interest. They've only released a demo tape on Painkiller, which is sold out. Men's Interest are hard and heavy while being distorted and chaotic at the same time. Joe Denunzio vocalization is here along with powerful Rorschach and My War era Black Flag influence. Their demo that I'm going to upload is ripped as only one track and the recording isn't that great (sorry!) Credit to whoever ripped it. This is great, I'm really looking forward to hearing more from these dudes.

Inmates - Now We Talkin Hardcore! 7"

New 7" released earlier in 2008 by these Cleveland ragers. Has a little better production than the previous Assholes Unanimous 12", but in my opinion these songs are even better. Check the previous Inmates post for a little more info on the band and the aforementioned Assholes Unanimous Presents... album. Released on a foreign label, but I believe it is still available from reputable distros (try No Way or Grave Mistake) in the States. 
I'll try and get a better scan up of the cover art and perhaps the insert later. 

Vagina Boys

Relatively unknown garage punk band from San Francisco who put out one 7" on the Swedish label KenRock in 2007 before disbanding. Pretty fun, and the lyrics are as lude and ridiculous as the name would imply. Features Mr. California on vocals and ex-members of the Grabbies, Bunny, and Plastination, if that means anything to you.

No Talk

No Talk is a Houston, Texas punk band. I guess they sound like Texas punk band the Hates and Really Red. Features an ex member of Insect Warfare. Check em out.


Police Mafia
Invade Iran

Neon Christ - Bootleg 2x7"

Neon Christ was a hardcore punk band from Georgia that existed from 83-86. They released one 7" EP and had tracks on the PEACE 2xLP. They were influenced by bands like Black Flag, Bad Brains, and Crucifix and played similar to bands like Neos and Koro.

Download Here.


Yes, there are way too many bands named Scapegoat(s). Yes, you should still listen to yet another. Really kick ass power violence influenced by some of the greats (most noticeably, Crossed Out). This Scapegoat is from Boston and put out a 7 incher on Painkiller , which is still available and on it's third press. 10 songs clocking in at 7 minutes. Rager!

Coke Bust - Cycle Of Violence

Coke Bust is a straightedge hardcore band from Washington DC. I guess they kinda sound like Infest, but with less harsh vocals. This EP was released on 200 tapes and made for their summer tour. They also have a demo 7" and the Fuck Bar Culture 7" out.

Download Here.

United Mutation

(cover of first ep, Fugitive Family (1983) and second ep, Rainbow Person (1984), respectively)

Here we have one of my favorite bands from the early 80s hardcore era, as well as one of the most criminally overlooked. Probably one of the first hardcore bands to use that manic gutteral scream you would see later in bands like Septic Death. This "discography" compiles their first 7", demo tracks, a large handful of compilation tracks, and some live ones. On the downside, this compilation completely neglects the studio version of their excellent second EP Rainbow Person (the live version of it is included, though) and the tracks from the first 7" are all out of order. Luckily for you, I'm also including the second EP. A cumulative 35 songs for your earholes. ESSENTIAL.


Some really weird KBD-inspired punk from Cleveland, OH. Most of the songs are about conspiracies involving alien sightings, martians, crop circles, time travel... you get the picture. Unfortunately they broke up earlier this year, but not before releasing the ...Are New Wave LP on Fashionable Idiots, which you might still be able to find in some distros. The ...Have Landed CD (still available I believe and put out by Gloom Records) compiles their first LP, 7" (both out of print) and a couple live tracks. Sure to annoy your parents!

The Repos- Hearts and Heads Explode

The second Repos LP released in 2006 on Youth Attack. Chicago band that played really fucking fast, short, pummeling, angry hardcore; 17 songs clock in at 11 minutes. Don't know a whole lot about them; they broke up earlier this year and their records are pretty hard to get a hold of, so have no qualms downloading this. They also have at least two other LPs on Youth Attack and a split 7" with Fourteen or Fight on Gloom Records (all out of print, of course); not sure if that's their whole discography. I guess some of these dudes continue to play in the band Chronic Seizure. Highly recommended!

Wrangler Brutes

Short lived (2003-2004) but amazinggggg band fronted by Sam McPheeters of Born Against (One of the best front mans ever), also sharing members of (Young) Pioneers, and Universal Order of Armageddon. They were possibly most noted for their crazy and hectic live performances. WB were a hardcore punk band with a sense of humor, lots of dick-sucking artwork and lyrics that would make a nun's head explode. Seriously..one of the best bands of this decade. They released a self titled cassette that eventually hit wax, an LP titled Zulu, and the more limited records~ one sided 7" and 2x8". If you've never heard of these guys you're definitely missing out. Oh, and heres a video of Sam McPheeters on Montel in 1993 showing his love for the black laydees http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BFIyV5nUH4

Bands That Don't Give A Shit About Being God: Boston/Lowell Compilation EP

1. Social Circkle - Private World
2. Witches With Dicks - It's Not You, It's Me
3. The Conversions - Chosen Few
4. Out Cold - Doomsday Guy
5. Violent Nuns - The C.I.A. Is After Me
6. Sgt. Slaughter - Wildman

Here we have a compilation put out by local label Social Napalm earlier in this year that documents the local scene, though it has already changed quite a bit and a few of these bands probably aren't even around anymore. Conversions and Witches With Dicks are no longer, at least, and Social Circkle is on hiatus (?). Anyway, the title of the comp. is supposed to be a play on the comp put out in the early 80s called Bands That Could Be God  also documenting the Massachusetts hardcore scene and including bands like Deep Wound and Outpatients. And you can tell - most of these bands have that early 80s hardcore influence going on, except for Conversions and WWD. Conversions, who played their last show not too long ago, are more influenced by the early 90s emo bands like Antioch Arrow and Heroin as well as Reagan-era hardcore. Those into it should also check out their LP on Level Plane. Witches With Dicks play the No Idea pop punk/Gainsville/beards stuff influenced by bands like Dillinger Four, I guess. Not really into it. 

This comp. is still in print, I think, so if your into it or any of the bands most of them are pretty easy to find, though I'm pretty sure Violent Nuns never recorded another record.

Left For Dead, Systral, The Swarm, and Mörser

Left for Dead really need no introduction, unless you cannot locate Canada on a map, or are completely oblivious to 90's straight edge hardcore. Complete moshing mayhem will ensue once you throw this album on. When that china cymbal hits, you know it's time to kill. Members also played in Haymaker, Cursed, Ruination and the Swarm.

Systral's "Black Smoker" is what i would title the "magnus opus" of the Bremen, Germany hardcore scene. Combining a very crushing style of hardcore and Entombed -esque Death Metal. Execptional sound sampling too. Members also played in Carol, Acme, Mörser and probably many more

Seeing how these band's future project; The Swarm and Mörser, crossed paths on a split I figured I might as well upload that too.

The Swarm i very similar to Left for Dead, except no china cymbal, and they introduce some slower moments into their music as well. This is not at all their best release, but it's solid. Be sure to check out their "Old Blue Eyes Is Dead" 7" if you're interested in what you hear.

Honestly, i don't know too much about Mörser. They sound like Systral v.2. They're still together i believe and haven't released anything in recent years, and supposedly have a new full length coming out in 2009 on Garden of Exile Records.

Iron Lung//Hatred Surge - Collaboration 7"

Iron Surge Hatred Lung. Two of the best names in grinding hardcore come together to form this fucking AMAZING collaboration. Only 100 of these are out there at the moment. They were sold as test presses at Chaos in Tejas last summer. Regular pressings of this record are rumored to be out pretty soon. 9 tracks of rage, definitely a top 5 record of the year. There's also going to be a split between these two bands in the near future. Hatred Surge also has a webstore up, so if you want to pose around in their shirts or own that 7" I uploaded a few posts back, buy it there. http://hatredsurge.bigcartel.com/

Brain Handle - Smiling/Smiling Again 7" - Iron Lung Records
Ripping hardcore punk from these guys, one of the best EPs of the year.

Aerosols - All 3 7"s - Youth Attack
The Three 7"s from this mysterious band. Spazzy, screamy hardcore, guitarist of Ampere is in this one. Only 200 copys of each 7" were pressed (WTF)

Failures - S/T - Youth Attack/Clean Plate
Brand new LP from a band with members of all your favorite bands. Mark McCoy (Bronson), Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere, etc.) and the drummer of Cancer kids. Also, one of the best LPs of 2008.

Homostupids - Two 7"s

Noisy, drug-induced, electronic?, weird, whatever, hardcore punk. It's good.

Final Draft - S/T 7"
Some ultra-pissed, violent hardcore from these so-cal dudes. Fast and hard. Sick Despise You cover on here too.

In Disgust - Reality Choke - 16oh
WEST. COAST. GRIND. VIOLENCE. One of the best grind/powerviolence bands existing today.

Brain Dead - S/T and Split w/ Rot In Hell
UK PV. It's good. Political lyrics. 90's powerviolence influence with a modern hardcore twist, similar to Sidetracked and Weekend Nachos. They play well.

This post wouldn't matter if it wasn't for these guys.

Burned Up, Bled Dry

Hardcore/Grind outfit from Arkansas. Started in 1996, toured and recorded heavily until a 1999 hiatus, then got back together in 2005 and just recently released a split with Arkansas' crusty-sludgy, Deadbird (Ex-Rwake). BUBD is obviously influenced by 90's fastcore, like Despise You, and Capitalist Casualties, only with a darker tone. On the Deadbird split, they have a more modern, melodic hardcore sound Aka: they got old and couldn't play fast anymore ;). They've had two 7" EPs (one on Slap-A-Ham), the recent split with Deadbird, and appear on the famous Bllleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh! - A Music War compilation. If anyone has more info on this band, please tell me, because I'm interested.

I want to blog about this amazing local band from here in Minneapolis. They're not named after a house, nor an apartment, not even a house boat...but a fucking Condo. This band rules, they are even better live. This is the most exciting band here currently and I really feel like sharing because they're pretty much 100% under the radar. To my knowledge, they've only hit the road once, to play a handful of dates on the east coast. This band pretty much formed after the breakup of the Formaldehyde Junkies and share members with two other local hardcore bands, Question and Pandamonium. They've self-released two 7" EPs so far; Hello Tomorrow and Pupils. Condominium plays fast; resembling early 80's hardcore. This isn't generic though, Condominium is very versatile in the way they play. You see..there are these wicked melodies underneath all of this fast punk taking from first wave punk and garage punk, complete with some extreme riffage. Watch out for more from these guys.

Both of their 7"s are still available, more info at their blogspot: http://condominium-hellotomorrow.blogspot.com

You've probably heard about this band, but you may not have actually listened to them. Kylesa are one of my favorite bands. Is it because of their raw sludgy tone? Bone chilling riffs? I don't know, but I fucking love it. They're pretty popular and most of you know about them because of all the attention they've received from their latest epic LP, Time Will Fuse Its Worth. Other than TWFIW, Kylesa has had 2 other Full Lengths, an EP, and 2 Splits. All of which are pretty unknown and under appreciated. So, I'm going to upload everything this band has released. Kylesa's sound has changed a lot throughout their existence. Their S/T is more raw and dirty while recently they've moved to a more psychedelic, and progressive sound. Still very heavy non the less. A good portion of their discography is still available at Prank's Distro, and Shirtkiller.com. So buy their stuff now. You're missing out. Kylesa's new LP should be coming out in February, so look out for that too.

The Last Five Years

Listen up weaklings. If you have spent your hardcore career posing out, and the only Black Flag record you can name is Damaged or The First Four Years.. I feel very sorry for you. You see, I am here to help and educate you, that there was a hell of a lot more to Black Flag than just DAMAGED. In fact, the last 4 Black Flag records were certainly much more interesting and superior to the "early years". Don't get me wrong, Damaged rules, but the last years of Black Flag are way overlooked, and this is a problem. I see way too many douches with Black Flag tattoos that can't name a song off In My Head. There's no TV parties, Gimmie Gimmies, or Six Packs in the last 4 years. Just pure genius/madness of Ginn. This era would be the Metal Era of Black Flag; heavy, intense, dense and progressive. The release of My War alone, is cited by many important bands as their most influential sound; Melvins, EyeHateGod, etc. It's sad that all of this is so under appreciated. So have at it. Please.

This band is fucking sick...These three dudes have crawled out of the goddamn Brazilian jungle to play some fast, blazing, hardcore. These dudes are passionate too, I can't understand or read their lyrics because they are all in Portuguese, but I can totally tell; there is no bullshit here. After releasing their Demo in like 2000, Max "625" Ward got a hold of it and was very enthusiastic about them, so he decided to release their first Self Titled 7" on his label, 625 Thrashcore. They soon started touring with What Happens Next? all across South America. They've toured over Europe, but I don't think they've played a US tour, which they fucking should. It's a shame that they aren't that well appreciated here in the US but its very much the opposite across the border. Get into it. "Play fast or die!!!"

Inmates - Asshole Unanimous Presents...

Inmates is a hardcore band from Cleveland, Ohio. If you know who the Melnicks are, this is one of their bands, except this doesn't have the metallic influence like some of their previous bands. The vocalist, Paul, does his vocals in an English accent. This is probably one of my favorite Cleveland bands. This is the remastered version with 27 tracks.

Mindless Mutant - S/T

Featuring, Max 625 on drums, Members of bay area's Our Turn and Look Back and Laugh. Mindless Mutant make one heavy ass powerviolence band. The first 3 songs on both sides are all ragers you'd expect from the collective members. There are two instrumental tracks, one on each side. I think they are the most interesting songs, the heavy riffage for 2 minutes is sick as fuck (listen to this shit loud). This is a crushing record. I thought this was OOP but apparently you can buy it from badskulls. I didn't know they started selling records, but I've seen it on there recently. This is Mindless Mutant's only release and they aren't playing anymore. Split Release by 625/Dangerously Small. Get it.

Manrae - Pacata Hibernia

This is one of my favorite mid 90's ebullition releases, certainly one of the most underrated as well. Emerging from the UK, Manrae play a very passionate form of hardcore. Manrae have all of the twink guitar work building into high energy parts that made 90s emo so good. If you're having a bad day and want to let it all out, put on this record and sob yr heart out. I'm sure this record has been re-pressed a fuck load so, buy it on interpunk or some shit if you cant afford the $100 dollar mailorder for ebullition.

Breathing Fire - Demo

"I predicted when xFILESx broke up how baffingly funny it would be to say ex-xFILESx for the next band. Well here you have it! Breathing Fire features ex-member of xFILESx. Going leaps beyond the direction of Excruciation (xFILESx''s last album), and slowing the intense thrash beats to a heavier sound, Breathing Fire ends up sounding like a mid-nineties power violence band influenced by bands like Crossed Out. Their fast parts are fast, but the other 40% of is super slow HEAVY hardcore that is probably aided by down tuning. This heavy/slow sound is showcased in “Gates Of Ivory.” Ditching the comedic aspects of xFILESx, Breathing Fire takes a more serious tone. Vocally don''t expect higher screams, but instead lower raspy bellows lined with drowning thirst. The juxtaposition of the fast and slow parts is appreciated. The songs loaded with tons of parts makes it sound like technical hardcore. "Exhale" is the creepiest sounding song with repetitive guitar droning and a sample of chainsaws and screaming."


This demo was originaly released in 2004 as a tape, then repressed as a 7" in 2007 on Painkiller. They also have a new LP out titled "Years Of Lead" its up for order on clear vinyl at painkillerrecords.com. Buy it.

Yaphet Kotto - Unreleased

On August 2nd, 2008. Yaphet Kotto were set up to play their long awaited "Last Show" since their break up in 2004. They planned to play at the legendary Gilman St in Berkeley, California. For their last show, Yaphet Kotto decided to make a few CD-rs with a few unreleased songs to sell. Unfortunately one of the members of Yaphet Kotto didn't show up which led to pissed off, disappointed fans, and unsold CD-rs. So the guitarist of Yaphet Kotto put them up on vivalavinyl.org and mail ordered the remaining CD-rs to whoever paypaled 7 bones. I managed to get my hands on one of these CD-rs, It's hand numbered limited to 53 and has a the "Last Show" date stamped on the sleeve. It has 3 unreleased songs which one is a Jasmine cover.

Coming from the DC/Maryland area, is a band called Timber. These guys play really interesting and fun music. Driving rhythems, raw youthful vocals, and melodic guitar work that will chill your bones. Think of the prime 90s post-hardcore bands like The Nation of Ulysses, Drive Like Jehu, and Kerosene 454 for a good picture of how Timber sound. These dudes play hard, and this stuff's pretty powerful. They just released a 7" and you can send 4ppd to ambrose.nzams@gmail.com to buy it.

Hatred Surge - Servant b/w Bestial

Hatred Surge is a one man grindcore/hardcore project from Texas. This is Alex Hughes project, who was a former member of now defunct grindcore band, Insect Warfare. If you haven't heard this band, I wouldn't suggest starting on this release because this isn't his typical style (big use of electronics on this). This 7" sold out very fast (most selling at the release show). This is currently the only blog with this upped, so get on it!

Eating Glass - Feed Them To The Vultures

Eating Glass is an amazing band from Canada. Plays hardcore similar to Pulling Teeth and Trash Talk. Each track on this fucking rips! This will be released in September on a 7" on High Anxiety Records, so make sure you go buy like 3 copies of this.

Rot In Hell (RE-UPPED)

Rot in Hell is a newer band from the UK. They play metallic hardcore strongly influenced by early Ringworm and Integrity. The files in this are the demo from 2007, the split with Brain Dead, and one track from the Hordes split. The track from the Brain Dead and Hordes split isn't great quality and there is a track or two missing from the Hordes split. They are now signed to Deathwish Inc. and plan on releasing an LP soon on DW and watch out for a collection of their stuff to be released on a389 records.

Harm's Way

Harm’s Way is currently the hardest fucking hardcore band today. Seriously guys..these are the devil worshiping jams you listen to while pissing on the bible. Perfect music for robbing a bank, beating up your boss, long car ride MOSH, or if you just want to rage. These dudes were/are in members of Plan of Attack, Few And The Proud, Weekend Nachos and Chronic Seizure and play a heinous barrage of thrashing hardcore with plenty of dirge and sludge mixed in. Mixing Carcass, EyeHateGod, Infest, and Napalm Death, would give you a pretty damn good idea of how HARD Harm's Way is. New LP SOON.

Grief - And Man Becomes the Hunted

This is the final record by 90's Doom/Sludge gods Grief. This is probably my favorite album by these guys. Full of heavy, jagged riffs, huge sludge bombs. Total Sabbath/Vitus worship with grinding vocals. Every time I listen to the song "If The World Was Flat" I want to punch a hole in the wall. One of the most interesting doom bands I have ever heard. the_finest.

Necros - IQ32 EP

Here's IQ32 by 80's Ohio hardcore band Necros. Amazing fast, furious, powerful hardcore punk. One of the earliest, finest, and my personal favorite 80's midwest hardcore band. In the Necros short lifespan, they spent most of their time opening for bands such as, Black Flag and DOA, and playing shows with other midwestern bands like Negative Approach, The Meatmen, and Bored Youth. This EP was released by Touch and Go Records and Dischord Records. "I.Q.32 I.Q.32 I.Q.32 Midwest fuck you!"

Weekend Nachos - It's A Wonderful Life

Weekend Nachos is a hardcore (NOT POWERVIOLENCE) band from Illinois. Fast, pissed, and heavy in vain of Think I Care and Infest. This is probably one of my favorite bands! The recordings are a tad bit lo-fi, but still good. Their new stuff has gotten a lot better (check out Punish and Destroy on Cowabunga and the tracks off the This Comp Kills Fascists CD on Relapse). On tour now, go fucking watch them! Check myspace for tour details.

Cursed - II

This is Cursed's sophomore album on Goodfellow records. Members were in bands Left for Dead, The Swarm, Ruination, Ire, and Haymaker. Played hardcore similar to Trap Them, Converge, and Integrity. They are now, unfortunately, broke up due to their shit being stolen on their European tour. They have two other LPs that are still in print (I, repressed on Thrash Art, and III: Architects of Troubled Sleep on Goodfellow). III was actually released maybe two months before they broke up.

Citizens Arrest - Demo '89

Citizens Arrest was a hardcore punk band from New York that existed from 1988-1990. Influences by bands like Siege, Negative FX, and SoA, Citizens Arrest played numerous times despite being around for only a couple years. Their music was a mix of hardcore bordering on thrash complimented by gruff vocals that made them sound like they were a Japanese band like S.O.B. or Gauze. Considered one of the seminal bands of the late 80’s N.Y. hardcore scene, many wonder what might have been if internal band conflicts wouldn’t have torn the band apart so early. This Demo features an awesome cover of Red C's "Pressure's On".

Acrid was a Canadian hardcore band that existed durring the mid-to-late 1990s. They delivered extremely distorted, sludgy, sick, grinding metal. No sing-alongs, no breakdowns, no poppy interludes, just scathing, scary metal, and vocals delivered straight from hell. high, low, distorted, strangled as fuck, glass in the larynx vocals of Neil Rodman. Members of Acrid went on to play in acts like Grade and the Swarm.
