OUT NOW: SPINE/THE REPOS Split 7" (Review + Download)


As the end of the year nears closer, it seems we still have quite a few impressive hardcore releases to look forward to, including this excellent split between hardcore warriors Spine and The Repos. Each band rips through 4 tracks of some of their best material laid to tape yet as well as closing out each of their sides with a cover of the other band. Spine continues to impress with the same punishing brand of fast hardcore that they displayed on their excellent demo and "Subhuman" release. They are quickly becoming one of the most vicious bands out right now and this new material has me even more anxious to hear their forthcoming LP dropping on Youth Attack next year. The Repos have always been an awesome band their side of the split proves that is still very much the case. Their furious punk energy is a great counterbalance to Spine's more straightforward hardcore approach, and as such this split begs to be put on repeat indefinitely. Put simply: Any fan of sincere punk and hardcore owes it to themselves to give this split from two great bands a listen ASAP, and thanks to Bad Teeth Recordings, you can download a copy to hear right now from the link below, as well as check out another link to order a physical copy of the split, so enjoy and pick one up if you dig it, which is almost certain.

Columbus, Ohio heavy hitters Empire Of Rats have a brand new full length scheduled to hit the streets this coming October. Featuring members of Palehorse, Pitboss 2000, Under One Flag, and countless others, Empire Of Rats brings forth a punishing style of hardcore similar to Cold As Life, Hatebreed, and Ringworm.

Enjoy another brand new track off their upcoming Self Titled album. 

Society's Zero Lyrics:
You see me in society and you don't like what you see
A threat to your existence, you just can't leave me be
Still strangling in this deep end, you see I've lost control
You see what life has dealt me, you try and play the roll
Too long
Back to the wall
If there's a chance, you would spit right in my face
Back to the wall
I still can't keep up from this losing race
Back to the wall
Can't keep my head up, my will is also weak
Back to the wall
My arms are also heavy, you will only let me sink

Review:Badblood-End Me


California band Badblood has been churning out some of the heaviest crust influenced metallic hardcore since their inception a few years ago, and their new release End Me finds them offering up their most intense recordings to date. This EP finds the band bringing together the crusty hardcore sounds of bands like His Hero Is Gone mixed with the crushing and miserable sounding sludge of bands such as Corrupted and Eyehategod to great effect. The 3 songs on this release never let up and continue to deliver one insanely heavy section after the next. This is also by far the best sounding recordings the band has released to date. All 3 of these songs have their standout moments, and the band never lets up in their outright intensity throughout making for a very cohesive listening experience that deserves many repeated listens. Fans of the newer breed of heavier metallic hardcore bands on the rise such as Dead In The Dirt, Homewrecker and Weekend Nachos owe it to themselves to check this release out (streaming below via bandcamp). It should be mentioned as well that you can also download the rest of the band's material via bandcamp on a pay what you want basis as well. I am very much looking forward to hearing a full length from Badblood, and suspect that they will continue to turn heads if the material on this EP is any impression to go by.
