Dead Cells - I LP

Expected to be available on Friday 21 February, 2020. Pre-order now!

Dead Cells out of Vancouver do it dark, desperate, and minimal. An archaic sound from the gothic ages of punk - when punk was catchy, but also dangerous. Going back to the three chord song, with downstrokes, vicious energy, and the two minute deadline. Sacred by the outstaning artwork, it's night church in the post apocalyptic wasteland. Their first LP and follow-up to their 2018 demo tape which was overheared by many people.

Desperation, angst and frustration pepper the words that twist and turn like daggers to the back of emperors. Twin guitar attacks carry melody and smart chord changes backed by a rhythm section that runs the risk of falling off the edge of the cliff. It's complimented by a brooding vocalist that half shouts-half sings.

You are welcome to dismiss this as some more of that melodic punk that you are too cool to admit that you like, but you would be a fool. Yes, the songs are catchy, and yes Dead Cells will get stuck in your head and even sometimes put a spring in your step, but this shit is deep and these songs are as close to utter brilliance as I can ever remember hearing.

This goes way, way beyond the “punk kids playing post punk” thing going around these days. The tone of the songs, and of the album as a whole, is just as important as the content of the songs themselves. The guitar is somehow bright and dark at the same time. Chorus and reverb effects give it a shimmer, but distortion and minor and diminished chords dull that shimmer enough to keep everything nice and dark. It’s like a beefed up version of an 80’s post-punk bands’ sound. The drums are tight throughout and the bass is dark and punchy as well. All of this is behind spooky male lead vocals.

Dark, anxious, paranoid, manic, obsessive, melodic, misanthropic, gothy, punk - Don't sleep on this.

Prescriptiondeath - s/t EP

Prescriptiondeath - s/t EP

Fastcore/Powerviolence from Gävle, Sweden! This goes fast and you can't even get along. First I put it on 45 turns but it was 33 that applied. You who like fast-playing punk where the drummer is completely exhausted after a couple of songs will love this. I like Prescriptiondeath and we will hear more from them...be so safe. These four songs can run over anyone and for an…

Deny - Dystopia LP

My God what a good it is and the record is already sailing up as this year's Swedish hardcore record already. Imagine your Anti-cimex with a better sound to make you understand who have not heard the group at all about how it sounds. So damn good and angry music it's been a long time since I heard.

I exercise to the record and it is a perfect record to work out to. Gives so much…

Serpent Eater - Vanitas LP (ltd. red vinyl)

180gram red vinyl, limited on 350 copies!

Serpent Eater know exactly who they are and what they are doing on 'Vanitas'. Opening with a stomping black metal crusher of a riff overlaid with cackling screams and ripping double kicks, this is blackened crust at it's most operatic and metallic.

The production and performances here are supremely polished and well rehearsed,…

Pisse - s/t LP

Pisse - s/t LP

Pisse are back and they are welcoming the new decade in style: Nine synth-trash protopunk smashers with an all-around nihilistic vibe and lyrics about funneling herbicides down your throat. Cheers!

While these songs may sound a little bleaker than the band’s last releases, they are as versatile as always with four tunes even breaking the two-minute mark. Lyric-wise, they…
