Review:Heartless-Hell Is Other People

2011
Facebook

Heartless are a hardcore band from Pittsburgh, PA playing an extremely volatile style of hardcore with some serious crust/sludge overtones. After an excellent self titled 7 inch released last year they return with their full length "Hell Is Other People" and this record is an absolute monster. The 13 songs on this record mostly blaze through an unrelenting hardcore/grind assault, but the band really excels when they slow things down to a crawl, resulting in some of the heaviest and most pit worthy breakdowns heard this year. Southern Lord has been releasing many excellent metallic hardcore releases as of late, and this album is no exception. Fans of dark and heavy hardcore owe it to themselves to check this record out, and you would also do well to check them out on tour currently with the equally excellent Full Of Hell. Highly recommended.

Review: Enforcers- End Of Time

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Enforcers are another band to add to the list of powerhouses that A389 records have been signing this past year, with a sound reminiscent of later Cro-Mags, Madball, Sick of It All mixed with your favorite thrash bands except Enforcers call Canada their motherland. Their album End of Time packs 6 songs, all of which make me feel like I’m listening to a classic NYHC great while making me bang my head to the riffs that are as stated before much like a mix between later Cro-Mags releases (think Alpha Omgea, Best Wishes) meets Madball’s Set it Off and Demonstrate My Style. “Black Sheep” stands out to me the most with it sounding the most like a song from any of those influences. As a fan of these crossover, thrash hardcore bands, I must say that this is one of the best I’ve heard since Take Offense came out with Tables Will Turn.



Rating: 5/5 (These are some good jams)

Favorite Songs: Black Sheep and All I Am

"We recorded these two songs ourselves on a laptop at a practice space in Cincinatti October whogivesashit 2011. These are two songs from a full length we have written called Smell The Cross. It's by far the most put together album of ours to date. The reason for this demo is to give people a taste what we've been cooking, and find a label to help put us in the studio and get the full length pressed and in every dorks hands in america. So enjoy these rough bastards and spread them around. The more ears these things punch the quicker we'll be able to drop some real recordings."

8.Dirt Road Of The Damned
9.Nubile King/A Reprisal

Get It Now

On their self released debut LP, Courtships rage through 9 songs of crushing technical hardcore. It's no easy feat in 2011 to successfully channel the chaotic metal/hardcore style perfected by bands like Botch, Coalesce and Converge in the late 90's, but these songs feel fresh and more then anything contain a frantic urgency and energy that is sorely lacking in many more current bands playing the style. As the band has been so gracious to provide a free download link to share with all of you as well as this review, I highly suggest you check it out yourself, and keep an eye out for a band that surely has good things in store. -Words Of Evil

Review:Ringworm/Mindsnare Split

2011

As the year comes to a close in the coming months there are still quite a few exciting hardcore releases coming down the pike, including this scathing split 7 inch featuring Cleveland hardcore legends Ringworm and Melbourne, Australia's Mindsnare. Ringworm contribute two previously unreleased tracks worth the price of admission alone.Fans of the band will most definitely not be let down by these admittedly short but extremely heavy/vicious tracks featuring some of the best riff's I've heard from the band in quite some time. The real surprise for me concerning this split were the two crushing tracks from Australia's Mindsnare, a band I was previously unfamiliar with but will be extensively checking out after hearing their side of this split. These two songs contain some of the heaviest hardcore I've heard this year, and frankly I felt like kicking myself knowing I had been unaware of their existence for so long. A389 continues their string of excellent releases with one of the best split's I've heard all year. Any fan of heavy metallic hardcore owes it to themselves to check this record out. Also to be noted is the awesome artwork and the fact that it comes with a comic book which is a straight up outstanding addition to anything, let alone a 7 inch.
