Artic Flowers - Reveries

Arctic Flowers - Reveries LP

IR024

One of the most well known of Portland's fertile post punk influenced scene, Arctic Flowers follows up their well received debut EP and split with Spectres. Their sound builds on the foundation of UK anarchopunk meeting their previous work with such bands as Signal Lost and The Observers. This 12" has 8 songs leaning more towards the hardcore end of the spectrum while throwing in the occasional Mob influenced bit of melodic punk. Second press: 300 on green vinyl.

Raw Nerves - Burnt Skin EP

Raw Nerves - Burnt Skin EP

IR027

Raw Nerves follows up the well recieved LP and 7" from last year with another short burst of politically minded rage. Forever unappologetically out of step with current trends, Raw Nerves cannot fall in line with the current crop of apolitical punk and hardcore. Offering up three songs railing against religion, misogyny and apathetic punk culture. As always, their release coincides with touring that will see them take their message directly to the people whether they want to hear it or not.

IR025

Kicker-7

Kicker - 7"

IR023

Kicker is a band that threatens to topple under the collective weight of its member's legacy: Mauz of Dystopia, Neurosis' Dave Ed, and Toby from Filth are joined by legendary road dog/first-time vocalist Pete the Roadie to create a group who plays punk in a way that's immediately familiar yet fresh. The A side is an epic ode to the aches and pains of aging while punk and the resulting "care" received from a monolithic medical corporation. The B side is quick to call you a cunt for just being you, a musically heavier take on the classic oi/uk82 sound. The Broke EP is a party record for assholes.

Frustration Broken

Frustration - Broken Defective 7"

IR022

If the first record was the soundtrack to sleepless nights, this is where days turns to weeks. Aggression and anger begin to rear their ugly heads. This second recording is alternately more dark and brooding and also more violent and straight forward. The d-beat is more prevalent while holding onto the melodies that make it memorable. As with the last one, ex-members of Consume, Snuggle, Cop on Fire, Decrepit, Blackout, Calloused and many more. Recorded by Stan Wright at Buzz or Howl in Portland.

Frustration Cover

Frustration - 7"

IR021

If the only thing that matters is a list of previous bands, skip to the final sentence and you will be very pleased. For everyone else for whom the content actually matters, you will also be very pleased. Frustration is the best new band out of Seattle right now. Their style can be best described as a dark punk approach to a Motorhead type sound, Complications or Born Dead Icons might be a good sign post. Melodic and powerful, but still punk in scope and theme, think Quarantine. A sum of all those parts. For those that need it, ex-members of, Consume, Snuggle, Cop on Fire, Decrepit, Blackout, Calloused and many more. Limited 550 on black vinyl.

Raw Nerves - LP

IR020LP

With members playing in hardcore punk bands for the better part of the last two decades, along with some younger energy and blood, Raw Nerves sound is a collection of those influences, ultimately coming back to what they know best: anger and speed. Musically, they hold a nice balance between classic early 80's hardcore like Negative Approach, Black Flag and Poison Idea to the late 80s/early 90s sounds of Citizens Arrest, Born Against, Econochrist, along with more modern bands such as Acts of Sedition, or Sacred Shock. Lyrically, they interweave boiling political dissections and intelligent sarcasm without ignoring the personal implications the fucked up world we live in has on all of us. But don't be fooled; they are not a white flag of surrender or nihilistic indulgence, but rather a call to arms. One time press of 500 and an mp3 download is included.

Fix My Head / Knife in the Leg - Split LP

IR019LP

The bay area meets poland on this split 12". The Fix My head side features 6 short bursts of pure rage in the tradition of Crudos and Talk Is Poison, updating the classic hardcore sound for the modern age. On the flipside, hailing from Lublin, Poland, Knife in the Leg take a more measured approach. More melodic, with each listen boaring hooks deeper into your mind. Southern California HC would be a good starting point but it certainly doesn't end there. MP3 download included.

Funerot - And Then You Fucking Die Man

IR018LP

After escaping the vast dimensions of space and time, FUNEROT has returned to the dust of Earth to explore the hall of a dingy mausoleum. Fourteen tombs line the interior split between opposing walls. On pillars of stone, strange symbols are engraved and these support the structure. The stench of death permeates. Outside amongst the rotting vines and curled branches is built a locked gate which in the iron is scripted "And Then You Fucking Die, Man."

Preying Hands - Through the Dark LP

IR017LP

Upon returning from a European tour late in 2006, Ballast promptly broke up. 3/5th of the band would continue to play together and soon would form PREYING HANDS including new members whose previous efforts included Montreal bands Snake Master, Desperate Living and Last Days. The sound seamlessly blends an odd combination of crust, melodic hardcore and a touch of pop punk. The powerful female vocals, that lyrically combine the personal with the political, complete an intense picture. Production was handled on this debut effort by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, weird...) at the Pines and mastered at Mammoth Sound by Dan Randall (Limp Wrist, Government Warning). The whole thing is packaged in a beautiful three panel fold out for the CD and including a digital download card with the LP.

Jesus Fucking Christ - Life's Hateful Seed LP

IR015LP

Building on their Poison Idea meets the Accused sound, JESUS FUCKING CHRIST has added some metallic flourishes with a thicker guitar sound and some intense and heavy mid tempo sections. Dave Ed's (Neurosis) handled the production in house this time around. Dave's voice is more prominent on many of the tracks, going from backing vocals to a full second vocalist. Larry's guitar work has only gotten more intense with the addition of occasional frantic punk rock solos throughout the album. Lyrically, the songs lash out at everything from punk scene politics and institutions to co-workers and the city they are from while always remaining firmly in the negative. All in all, this album accomplishes what any excellent second album does: builds and expands on the framework set by the first and never disappoints. Limited to 666 copies

Ballast - Fuse LP

IR014LP

The second full length from Montreal's Ballast shows a maturity and intense growth often unattained in the melodic crust/ peace punk scene. 10 tracks of intense female fronted hardcore including a Post Regiment cover, falling between the aforementioned band, Lost World and perhaps Tragedy. Each song showing they took the time to develop the melody that will stick with you rather than be processed and quickly filed away. An amazing release worth it's praise. Domestic release remastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound.

Sping Break! / Zombie Ritual - Split 7"

IR011

A split of total misfit grind. Tokyo's Zombie Ritual continue down their near obsessive path of zombie themed thrashing gore grind. One the other side is the similarly one track minded Spring Break!, from the sunny lands of San Diego it seems obvious that their grind would revolve around the topics of the beach, malt liquor and weed. The only was you would know that is what you were experincing is to read the lyrics, as musically it is as ripping as you can get. Recorded in the same session as their up coming split with Cross Examination. Artwork done by Impaled's Sean "Bloodbath" McGrath.

Slightly Less Than Nothing - Less Fashion, More Thrashin! LP

IR010

Quite a mouthful but held within the vinyl is 13 raging thrashers of out of control hardcore. I had called the first ep from two years ago "skate thrash stoner grind" as that was the only thing that made sense. It is still an apt description but add to that and oldschool hardcore sensibility.

Oroku - Living Through The End Time... CD

IR009

The full length debut from these Lawrence, KS transplants. Now finding Seattle as their home, they have recorded this ten song apocalyptic beast (the CD also has their 3 song EP as bonus tracks, remastered, 13 songs total). With the addition of Lisa from Garmonbozia ..o their sound has taken a turn for the worse, and that is the best news you can hear! Once compared to From Ashes Rise, this is no longer the case. Now they have a Remains Of The Day meets doom (the genre) meets filthy crust thing happening. The whole thing looks great in a silver, black and red packaging. They have toured the US 5 times in support of a seven inch and have kids clamoring for their return. They are currently in Europe about to do a two month tour. Recorded at the Autopsy Room by Jesse O'Donnell (Skarp, Splatterhouse, etc.), also features guest vocals from Renae of Skarp.

Jesus Fucking Christ - Self Titled LP

IR008LP

After playing in and around the Bay Area for a couple of years Oakland's JESUS FUCKING CHRIST makes it's recorded debut with this self titled rager.

For fans of old school Northwest hardcore like the ACCUSED or POION IDEA as well as anyone looking for something like the sounds of the earliest NEUROSIS records.
