Now playing: This Machine Kills – And The Weight Of That Silence
A swirling mix of reverb-drenched guitars, pounding rhythms and beautiful, stratosphere-scraping harmonies. Such a fun rock and roll record.
Originally released by Deathwish Inc. It has been out of print for over two years and is being made available again by Ferret Records. For fans of Lamb Of God, Converge, and Meshuggah.
A Man Down are a Pop-Punk band from sunny Brighton town. They have released their debut EP ‘Scene Not Heard’ on the former Punktastic Recordings and are set to head back into the studio in the coming months.
“Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth” features 5 intense songs that will leave you wanting more of this band based out of Mass. For fans of Underoath, Norma Jean, Everytime I Die, and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.
With previous releases on both Hydra Head and Revelation, Vermont’s DROWNINGMAN return with five progressive and melodic metal/hardcore tracks – three new songs as well as re-recorded versions of out-of-print songs from their early days. This release also features the layout and design skills of Aaron Turner from ISIS and Hydra Head Records. New from Equal Vision Records.
Arguably the most fun CD ever produced by the band. Most bands go through a maturing process after a certain number of years; this CD is proof that The Secretions refuse to grow up.
Each CD comes with a free bottle opener secretly hidden underneath the CD tray.
Debut release from Sudbury, Ontario’s Statues. A great blend of power pop, pop punk, ala Husker Du.
if you’re a huge fan of wintersleep like i am, then this new band will not disappoint you! the whole EP is available as a free download, so there’s really no excuse not to check it out.
This album instantly heralded the Minneapolis-based indie rock phenomenon’s competing tendencies towards indelible genius and bleary, drunken anarchy.
The third album from San Pedro, California’s TOYS THAT KILL (ex-F.Y.P.). Shanked!-Named after band member (and Recess chief) TODD CONGELLIERE’s cat Boris’ tendency to strike without warning- features the band in full attack mode, delivering punk hit after punk hit that straddle the line between scary and cute. For fans of Bent Outta Shape, Arrivals, Tiltwheel, Grabass Charlestons, Soviettes, and the like.
Stylistically, Whale|Horse’s material bears some resemblance to the later work of the Honor System, but with an emphasis on more enigmatic lyrics, tense songwriting, irregular timings and the further evolution of Dan Hanaway’s vocals, more powerful still and now utilising vibrato.
Despite being self-produced, the EP’s production is of a high standard.  With it, Whale|Horse have drawn a wide variety of comparisons from Joy Division and Interpol to the The Buzzcocks.
