Going Off – Pay the Price/Bed of Concrete

I love how you can tell what something is going to sound like just by glancing at the artwork. So, this new release from Going Off, a band I’m not that familiar with – but I’m going to say definitely hardcore? Oh good lord yes.

Demons – Under The Western Heel

Under The Western Heel splices in some of the hardest, challenging, and chaotic slabs of menacing, and altogether fun-packed moments of frantic, sweat-soaked punk rock and walls of alienating, challenging noise.

Rest Easy, Rick Froberg.

“There ain’t nothing for it
What else can you do
Nothing to work with
Nothing to lose
It is what it is
It ain’t gonna improve
Nothing to work with
Nothing to lose
Take it or leave it
Do both if you choose”

Regal Cheer – Cans

Regal Cheer consists of Max and Harry, a guitar and drum duo from Brighton who also shout themselves hoarse over the brief, but blistering 17 and half minutes that Cans has to offer.

Demons – Swallow EP

Demons barely have enough time to devote to this new EP, which clocks in at just under 6 minutes and consists of 4 heart-racing, blood-pumping slabs of furious, scathing noise rock.

Care Home – Assisted Living (Part 1)

Who are the band Care Home and why should you, well, care? Well, for one thing, it contains ex-members of Red Stars Parade, USA Nails, Whores Whores Whores, Year of the Man and False Flags.

Demons – Privation

Demons play the kind of frantic, scrappy-sounding punk rock, backed with this sludgy, noise-rock tone of indignation that fans of The Bronx and Whores will love.

Shuck – Petrichor and Rainbows

From the destructive minds of Al Wilson and Jon Perry along with Andi Jackson for the ride, Shuck, could well be the band to sit nicely in the middle of that Venn-diagram of heavy, melody and aggression.
