Overlooked 2014 Releases You NEED To Check Out: Part 1

With so many new albums being released in 2014 it's very easy to overlook great albums without even realizing it. To help change that, we will be closing out 2014 with a three part series (one per month) in which we'll be creating a list of 2014 releases we feel are extremely overlooked while being extremely enjoyable. Whether you feel these releases are overlooked or not is beside the point, main post of this series is for awesome releases to get checked out.
Idylls "Prayer for the Terrene"

28 minutes of absolute madness. New full length effort from Australia's own Idyslls. Only way I can honestly describe this is that if you blend Converge, Noise, Saxophone, and slamming a sledgehammer onto your chest you end up with this full length. Really no clear way I can describe the full length, other than it's well worth the listen if you like your music chaotic, noisy, and extremely well produced.

Facebook / Bandcamp
Dharma "Sea Nothing"
Second EP from Southern California outfit Dharma. Dharma brings forth a great mix of Indie/Punk which I personally love, reminds me of a more low-fi version of Interpol. Highly encouraged for those of you trying to branch outside the boundaries of listening to nothing but heavy music.


Leather "Easy"
After a sea of EPs, Philadelphia's Leather finally brought forth their debut Full Length this year and it has completely taken over my daily playlist. Noise Punk complete with aggressive vocals, guitar reverb, and recording production that doesn't sound like it was done with a Fisher Price cassette deck. What's not to love?

Facebook / Bandcamp

Cursed Grave "Western Blood"
I've been lucky enough to follow the growth of this band throughout the last year or so and all I can really say is the vast improvement in writing and performance in the past year is astonishing. As a follow up to their Self Titled EP, Western Blood features four brand new tracks that are sure to fans of Punk/Hardcore/Whatever extremely happy. "Groovy" is usually an odd term to attach to a Punk release, but you'll find yourself tapping your foot and nodding your head along to the music more than you'll even realize. The bands debut Full Length has been recorded and should be out by the start of 2015, keep an eye out for it.

Facebook / Bandcamp

The Lowest Form "Negative Ecstasy"
Another absolutely great out of the Iron Lung Records camp. After releasing a demo and an EP, Britain's own The Lowest Forms came out absolutely swinging with their debut full length. One of my favorite Punk releases of the year, 24 minutes of straight forward aggressive and noisy Punk that is a must hear. Will keep it short and sweet, LISTEN TO THIS FULL LENGTH ASAP.

Part II will drop sometime in November, keep an eye out for it. For now enjoy some new tunes.

Keeper- MMXIV

Quality: 320kbps
1. Hours. Pt 1

Year: 2014
Quality: 320kbps
1. Sigh of the Oppressed Creature
2. Chains and Garlands
3. Cull the Living Flower

Incredible release from Pennsylvania outfit Capa. Fans of Sludge and Black Metal should definitely check this out asap.

Vatican Massacre-Worldwide Genocide



1.WWG Intro
2.Blood Thirst
3.Deadly Practice
4.Holy War Funeral March
5.Worldwide Genocide
6.Vatican Massacre
7.Forced To Exist

Worldwide Genocide is the newest release from South Florida grind/powerviolence band Vatican Massacre. As vicious as their name implies, the band tears through these songs in a blink of an eye, and the raw but clear production perfectly captures the band's chaotic nature. A great progression from their also excellent 2014 demo release, definitely a must listen for fans of raw and crusty punk/hardcore/powerviolence.

Ad Nauseum-EP



2.Ritual of Self-Chaining
3.Green Hands

Ad Nauseum are a 4 piece band from Orlando that plays a volatile combination of experimental hardcore, doom and sludge metal as well as elements of harsh noise. Highly recommended FFO: Bastard Noise, Dystopia and Full Of Hell as well as other equally abrasive bands, these 3 songs show a promising future and are an awesome introduction to one of Florida's most promising newcomers. You can also watch a video of their entire set from this year's Southern Darkness Festival in Tampa, Florida below.

Interview: John Hoffman of Weekend Nachos / Bad Teeth Recordings

Hey Snyder, thank you for taking the time out your busy work day to do this interview with us. I’ll make this relatively quick and easy so you can get back to starting Twitter wars.
Thank you, because Twitter is the only thing I have left in this world that's always been there for me when I needed it most.
For those of you unfamiliar with you or your work, could you please give our readers a quick introduction?
That's a funny way to start!  I'm John, people used to (and still do) call me Caution but now I insist people call me Snyder. He's the bad guy in the white suit from 3 Ninjas and also my favorite character in the movie so I thought it would be a cool self-appointed nickname, and luckily people have cooperated!  I like to watch/play basketball, buy old Nintendo games and blow on them/clean them with rubbing alcohol so they eventually work, and write songs that make people hurt eachother.  I also just recently got engaged to a female.  I also like to eat burgers.
Weekend Nachos recently played their 10 year anniversary show in Chicago. How does it feel to be hitting that huge milestone as a band?
Feels good, man. For real. When we started this band in 2004, everybody either hated us or thought we were a joke. Both things were justified at the time. But over the last 10 years people have grown to like our music and appreciate our presence in the scene.  I don't think we ever really gave a shit whether that would happen or not, but it's kind of a cool story of how we got to this point. Most bands would have broken up by now.  Tell that to Agnostic Front or the Rolling Stones though.
What are some of your favorite moments from being in the band?
Damn, obviously there are many. I'm going to say the first three that come up in my head.  First thing I thought of was when our roadie on the first 2 tours, Matt Rolland, jumped off of the bass drum during our set and knee'ed me right in the face, splitting my lip wide open.  I was gushing blood everywhere.  It was a basement show and they had a bathroom down there, so i ran through the crowd, ripped the toilet paper roll right off the wall, stuck it to my face and continued the rest of the set.  We only had 3 songs left but the entire roll of toilet paper was SOAKED RED by the end of our set.  It was very painful the next few days but still one of my favorite memories of being in the band.  Next one that comes up is the time when all of us got naked and went in this kid's whirlpool bathtub.  It was me, Christian and Matt, while Aaron took a shower and pressed his butt against the glass window.  In the early days we did things like that a lot and I think it's important for guys to do those types of things together, at least a few times. You can stop at some point and settle down, that's fine. Last thing that comes to mind is the time where we played in Tampa (or maybe Orlando, I forget) with Reign Supreme.  It was basically 3 crust punk bands (I'm including us in that category) and 3 cleaner more metallic bands.  So the crowd was very mixed. I don't remember how it started but there was a huge brawl during Reign Supreme's set.  Somehow we were forced to headline so we hadn't played yet.  This brawl was crazy, probably 4 little fights happening at once and it was all girls!  Which is not something you see often.  I swear this brawl was just 4 different groups of girls killing each other.  Christian and I were standing on chairs watching and just looking at each other like "welp, this is interesting."  Later that night, we went outside and saw two things right next to each other:  one was Jay from Reign Supreme practicing his kickboxing, complete with gloves and pads...the other was the Weekend Nachos van rocking back and forth because Aaron was banging some chick inside of it.  Those two things happening right next to each other were just too priceless to handle.

It’s common knowledge at this point that you guys record everything in house through your guitarist Andy Nelson. Do you feel having complete and utter control over the path of the recording process has helped with the final product of your music?
Absolutely, 100%.  We can pretty much owe the integrity of our records entirely to that very concept. We all do different things in this band, it's almost like we're a group of superheroes and we all have our own special powers.  Andy is responsible for our recordings and our guitar/bass tones.  Without him, Weekend Nachos would sound different. We all contribute to the records but having access to a recording studio and an in-house engineer has allowed us to create our albums the same way we write our songs at practice:  together, and completely in control of all results.  I can't imagine us going to someone else's studio and recording an album, I really can't.  Maybe we should do it sometime just as a new challenge.

When writing, what are your main influences? (Instrumentally and vocally)
Vocally...that changes over time, because really it's however my voice sounds when I belt it out. But I guess I'm always HOPING to sound like a combination of Joe from Infest, Mike from Eyehategod and Kirk from Crowbar.  Maybe add some Ray Cappo from Youth of Today in there too.  Those are my main vocal influences.  Instrumentally...well, the goal from the beginning was to combine the sounds of Youth of Today, Carcass, Eyehategod and Infest.  Over time, we've added a lot more nu-metal influence, a lot more death metal and crust punk influences too.  And I still write songs based on the standard old school hardcore/youth crew model.  You'll hear a WN song and think "it's heavy like Tragedy but fast like Infest and Gorilla Biscuits".  At least that's kinda how I see it.  I don't know, the more I discuss it the dumber it will sound. I'll stop now.

I know that you guys have had to put the breaks on a little bit in terms of touring on a regular basis; do you ever see the band touring full time/semi-full time again?
I don't see us every touring full-time, because we never did to begin with. As for semi-full time...well, probably not that either. We used to tour roughly 2 1/2 months out of the year. I can see us getting back up to 1 month, maybe 1 1/2 months again, but we are not career musicians.  Life changes and gets in the way.  Brian is married with a full-time job, I'm about to be married and have always had a full-time job, Andy and Drew are always working too.  Wait til one of us has a kid, you know?  Unless you set yourself up to do this full-time, you probably never will.  I do think we will drag this shit out as long as we possibly can though, haha.  I don't see us breaking up very soon, I want to release more albums and continue to play more places.

Is it true you guys chose the name “Weekend Nachos” because the band name “Chicago Fight Metal” seemed a little too much at the time?
The band was actually originally called With Honor but we found out there was already a band called that so we changed the name to All Teeth. Then we found out there was also a band called that so we settled on 50 Lions.  Seriously, we kept coming up with all of these great band names and having to change them.  Weekend Nachos was the last thing we could think of and thankfully no one had taken it yet.

If you had one message for your local (Chicago) Hardcore/Punk scene what would it be?
"Shut the fuck up"

In August of 2012 you launched your own label known as Bad Teeth Recordings. This is your second attempt at owning and operating a record label, what routes are you taking differently in the curation and longevity of BTR compared to your past efforts?
I'm not really doing anything differently than I did with Tooth Decay, honestly...I guess I just have a little more experience now. I know a lot more people, a lot more distros/contacts in general, I've been to a lot more places and met a lot more people.  So that helps, honestly the more connected you are to the hardcore community/network, the better off you'll be when doing a DIY label.  You don't have a distributor (or at least I don't, haha) to take care of that shit for you, so you gotta make the connections yourself and get your stuff out there.  Honestly I'm pretty laid back about it.  I don't have time to make sure my records get out to every corner of the world, or even the country. But I give it my best shot. I figure if someone really wants a release they can always order it directly from me.

What can we expect from Bad Teeth Recordings late 2014 and beyond? Do you ever see yourself pressing any of your past/inactive bands on wax?
Right now I'm really working hard on the SPINE LP.  It should be out in November, we are pumped on it.  After that, I have plans to release records for Bent Life and Full of Hell.  I will never reissue anything from my past, except for maybe Cyborg because I think a Cyborg discography could be cool.  We had a very short, but solid run and no one ever really heard us.  I'd like to change that at some point. 

Now for the most important question you've been asked in your life, could you go into detail on the table/yacht roof incident?
Fuck. You went there. For mystery sake, I am going to decline to answer this. Let the readers wonder (you are so bummed right now)

Name ten bands (active/inactive) that your feel are severely overlooked within the Punk/Hardcore scene.
Ah, nice question...better than the last one, haha!!! I'm going to list 5 punk/hardcore RELEASES from the past that I think are very overlooked and underrated.  10 is a little too much for me, I don't think I've ever even though about 10 of anything before. You can agree or disagree with my choices but I have always felt the following releases should be talked about more:

1. Turning Point demo - Maybe the most perfect hardcore release ever. The raw recording, the passionate unadulterated vocals, the songs themselves...that demo was special. The perfect way to introduce melody and passion to the previously raw youth crew genre.  Every Turning Point record after that did not even compare.

2. Bad Business - S/T 7".  This was one of many lost gems of the early 2000's.  One of the best 7"s I own.  Completely unique and like nothing I had ever heard before...a truly weird take on fast hardcore.  Grave Mistake put it out and I'm sure he's got a few lying around somewhere if you ever want to seek it out.

3. Fastbreak - Don't Stop Trying 7".  I don't know what it is about this record, it's generic crap but I love it. It's one of my favorites and I never hear it mentioned. Another late 90's/early 2000's record that will never resurface.  I can even understand why, but it deserves a mention in my opinion.  Maybe it's nostalgia, I don't know.

4. The Wayouts - Better Days EP.  None of you know who this is because they're a local Chicago emo punk band that never really did much outside of Illinois. Not even close to being considered hardcore but one of my favorite records of all time.  Completely overlooked outside of my local scene but worthy of a mention. Check it out if you can find it - Harmless Records.

5. Hacked Off - demo. This was a band from Cleveland that did a demo in 2005 and completely disappeared. Members later went on to form Severe who did a 7" on 625 and were mildly talked about for a few months. But the Hacked Off demo was great.  They did the Integrity meets Left For Dead thing before it officially caught on.  Nothing groundbreaking, just really honest and raw hardcore.

Huge thank you yet again for doing this with us. If you have any final questions, comments, shout outs, or any other things you’d like to touch base on, please do so below.
Shout out to Uncle Daddy 6-9.  I hope you get help soon.

Interview: Jami Morgan of Code Orange

How was Code Orange formed and how do you feel about the musical progression of the band as a whole?
Code Orange Kids was formed when we were 14 or 15. We all went to the same high school and were all getting into punk and hardcore and decided to start a band. I feel like the record we are releasing in a few weeks "I Am King" is where i want us to be as a band and is the only thing we have released thus far that completely represents who and what we are and what we wanna be.

Out of the members in Code Orange, who have you been playing music with the longest?
I met Reba when i was 12 so technically her. We have all been playing together for a very long time though. Almost as long as I can remember. My band mates are my best friends and always have been. 

A relatively unique aspect about Code Orange is that you sing while drumming, was it easy for you to pick up the double duty or were there some speed bumps when y’all started playing music together?
It kind of just came out of the fact that I was the only one initially unafraid to do vocals and that I was the one that wrote the lyrics. As everyone got more comfortable with it and started jumping in it was just kind of our mold. There have definitely been bumps along the way but it has always felt natural to me in some capacity. I'm not a great drummer or a great singer so i just put what i got into both and it is what it is.

On September 2nd, you released you second full length under the name “I Am King”. How was the writing/recording process of this album and how was working with Kurt at GodCity again?
The writing process was definitely very different. we spent a lot more time and ditched a lot of songs by the time we got to the final 11. we did two sets of demos - one with Taylor Young in California at The Pit and one at home with our friend Dave Rosenstraus of Hounds of Hate before deciding on what we wanted to do. Basically the second the last record was done we started thinking about this one and the direction we wanted to go with it. The first LP was meant to be a proper summation of what had come before it and this was always intended to be a whole new ball game. Kurt was great to work with. We knew what we wanted and he facilitated that. He respected what we wanted to do and helped us do it to the best of our abilities sonically. He knew we didn't want a producer or someone to help creatively, but more someone to help us get where we were trying to go with sounds, tones and sonic themes.

It seems like as a band gains success, more and more people start to criticize and hate on them. Do you ever find yourself focusing on negative comments people throw out about your band or are you relatively good at blocking negativity out?
People are always going to talk. It is what they do. It has definitely bothered me in the past, especially when i see someone saying something on the internet that I've met in person and they had nothing to say about it then. The internet mentality of saying what you want and not expecting confrontation kind of makes me sick but its something I'm learning to ignore. The thing about it is there are a million different perspectives and a million different meta scenes within one that feel differently about different bands at different times depending on what there friends think. It really only strikes me when it’s something that I'm insecure about, and there is not a lot on this record that i am insecure about. I greatly appreciate and respect the people who have stuck through it with us when there internet friends decided it was or wasn't cool or whatever. i remember the people who have stuck through it. That being said I'm super siked that there are people who simply didn't like the other records that are checking this one out and digging it. That means a lot to me. I have a handful of people whose opinions I truly value and internalize, but we are always going to do exactly what it is we want to do no matter what anyone is saying.

You guys have been using the phrase “Thinners of the Herd” for a while now, could you go into detail on what that means?
Thinners of the herd to us is just a way of distinguishing ourselves from the pack, and basically saying what i said above, we are always going to do exactly what is we want to do whether its calling our band whatever we want to call it at a certain time or making the videos and record that we want to make. it about weeding out people from your life that try to hold you back based on what they think about you or what they think about themselves. we don't want any limits on what it is we are doing creatively or personally an d our record is generally about getting rid of the things inside of yourself and the people around you that try to stifle you from doing what it is you want to do. Becoming king of your own mind and own world and taking hold of it. I've spent a lot of time in my life battling my own perception of myself and others perceptions of me and this record is about the end of that. I like to think that people who like our band and really see it for what it is are Thinners of the Herd. At least in our book.

What could we normally find you guys doing while not on the road?
Joe works construction. Eric works for a bag piping school. Reba work(ed) for a grocery store. i work loading equipment for bands at bigger shows. We are all in the process of getting fired and/or will be getting fired soon. We watch a lot of wrestling and hang out with our group of friends.

It’s relatively common knowledge that most of your band are professional wrestling fans, have you ever routed a tour around being able to make live events?
nah but me and Joe have driven countless hours directly before and after tours to go to them. 16 hours to RAW 1000 after Europe. 30 hour drives to multiple Wrestlemanias. We live it brother.

If you could create a theme for any active WWE professional wrestler, who would it be and why?
Probably Seth Rollins and or Dean Ambrose. I think I am king would work great for Rollins and my world would work great for Ambrose. Still hoping someone over there hears one of our songs at some point. When that happens my lifetime goals will all be fulfilled.

What can we expect from Code Orange late 2014 and beyond? Any new release plans in the works?
Grinding the fuck out of this record as its what we have worked for for the past 2 years and it is fully what we believe in. I AM KING is all that is on the horizon.

Thank you for taking the time to do this, if you have any shout out, comments, or any questions please do so below.
Thanks to you Wayne for consistently supporting us from the beginning and not changing with the tides around you like many others. It means a lot.
