  It’s truly unfortunate that what used to get these kids caned would now get these kids laid.  I used to faun all over the Anti Fashion chapter of American Hardcore: the originality of engineer boots covered in chains and bandannas, the flannel wrapped around the waist (later lamely associated with

The United Sons of Toil‘s album When The Revolution Comes, Everything Will Be Beautiful is get up & make a change music. They create epic socio-political songs that will challenge your thought pattern. Imagine if Fugazi, Black Flag & Scratch Acid & The Weathermen started a band…that would begin to

OK I admit that I am totally fucking addicted to doom & raw black metal, so when music combines both, I get my fix. In my book, the Welsh band GHAST, with the release of Terrible Cemetery works magic with both of these genres. Actually, I think this release is

Who fucking turned on the jack hammer? It must be me…I’m listening to Curmudgeon, and this killer Boston hardcore punk band pounds the chaotic noise I was raised on. Their 8 song, 8-minute long tape is fucking illmatic. Curmudgeon gets straight to it with vocals that ring alarms. On top

Dirty, raw, lo-fi, powerful, & political only scratch the surface of what this band is all about. Political Terror are a super sick black metal band from Florida that create the kind of noise violence I dig. On their demo tape Bastard Begins they bring the rawkus. One thing I

Destroy Judas‘ new album Wake is far beyond epic, it’s in own atmosphere of radness. If I had to call their music anything it would Apocalyptic Blues. Beware: when listening to this album you will begin to wander off into another plane of reality, where there is light in the
