What happens when a group of close friends who are bonded by a deep friendship, a highly socially-aware anger and an interwoven web of strong progressive beliefs decide to play loud, angry, abrasive and blown out hardcore punk as a vessel for the expression of radical and extreme vegan, pro-animal rights, feminist, anti-patriarchy, anti-religion, anti-misogyny, anti-homophobia, anti-transphobia and anti-speciesism ideals? Well, what happens is that in seconds you end up enveloped in a shit storm of rage that has seemingly no end, nor shows any kind of willingness to loosen it’s vicious, mauling attack on your sorry throat at any time, and that will stop in front of nothing in order to get its message across. And that’s what CARNIST‘s music is all about. Being pissed to no end about a multitude of social matters, and therefore being pissed in an exponential kind of way, in a million different directions. End up in this album’s path and the only choice you have to stay alive is to embrace its message, otherwise get the fuck out of its way or the damn thing will flatten you like a worm under a steam roller.
The other day I was checking out one of my favorite sites Crust-Demos and came across the this raging fucking one man D-Beat band TRIBÜNAL from Germany! Every tune that
I’ve heard from this being is a straight banger that even has our 2 1/2 old daughter spazzing out and head banging non-stop. TRIBÜNAL songs pack the feral angst of a generation but also have an uplifting quality about them. It’s the crusty, I-don’t-give-a-fuck melodies that get me hyped! TRIBÜNAL’s music is going to be played non stop in the CVLT Nation HQ, and I recommend you should do the same and blast these vicious tunes on repeat! You can download his EP “FTW” below…TRIBÜNAL is the gnarliest D-Beat projects I have heard this month, so turn up the volume and punch the BRAINDEAD in the jaw!
Bible Thumper’s Decimation is a wallop of a D-beating. The screams radiate from behind a muffled wall, with the savagery butchering its way through nine gut-punching, jaw-cracking and teeth-grinding tracks. Be warned.
The title track rends its way with a mosh pit conjured from the scumiest bowels of hell, maintaining its unholy pace throughout its length, promising only a forbidden taste of the debauchery to come. In “Only HUman,” the vocals roar, scream and claw their way from behind the jagged sound. “Artificial Fulfillment” is a disgusting duet of snarl and snap, supported by frenetic drumming and riffs overdosing on speed. “Spiritual Death” is monstrous, coming with a sledgehammer swinging and be assured, brains do go flying. A personal favorite and certainly among Decimation’s finer offerings. “Spiritual Death” abridges itself like a malignant twin to “By Our Will,” an anthemic helping that will inspire stationary limb throwing no matter the situation.

Hand me the new FORWARD & TEARGAS 7inch so I can slap the taste out of warmongers’ mouths worldwide. This record will give you the energy of a hundred cups of coffee with a healthy dose of D-Beat angst. Both bands show and prove why they are not willing to bow to the seen and unseen corrupt powers. For over 9 minutes, FORWARD & TEARGAS will have the listener riding the crusty riffs of their anthems of rebellion! It’s an honor for CVLT Nation be streaming this record in full below…Make note – it’s out now via Hardcore Victim (AUS), Punk and Destroy (JP) and Havoc Records (USA).
Italy’s Shove Records (along with Mind Control Records and a few others) brings you a truly unholy alliance of sorts. What you’ll find in this 7″ split release by the two Danish bands are in fact two tracks of icy, tenebrous, desolate and annihilating blackened hardcore.
Copenhagen devastators HEXIS kick off the feat with Tenebris, two and half minutes of complete fucking annihilation that will have fans of the blackened post-hardcore of bands like Celeste and The Secret drooling for days. These two minutes steep in an endless shitstorm of blast beats and razorwire – ice-coated malevolent riffage that creates a thunderous backdrop to an utter war zone of bleak hardcore belligerence. Something that can bend into submission even the toughest spines.
Straight up, 90′s DEPRESSOR rock my motherfucking world! Every release I have from them is a classic, because they created music without boundaries. DEPRESSOR always had messages in their music I could relate to, and they still ring true today! Check this out – you can download DEPRESSOR’s War Whores +4 & Some Hit Back releases right here and now!

Get ready to hear DISCHARGE like you’ve never heard them before!
Dublin is pretty rife with noisy punk and hardcore bands, whether it’s Disguise or Crows, and now you can add another name to the list in Gaze. With some familiar faces from Twisted Mass and Fag Enablerz in tow, Gaze play raw d-beat inflected with noisy Japanese hardcore. It’s harsh and cacophonous… exactly what you would expect.
The band has a new tape out now, with a release gig in Dublin coming up on January 17th but for now check out the stream of the tape below.
As you may know, we were fucking blown away by the rabid madness and insane heaviness of Augurs‘ debut EP, the 2012 Demo. After that crushing (but brief) load of heaviness was deployed on our sorry skulls last year, almost leaving us fucking crippled in its destructive wake, the wait to hear the follow up to that release has been that of endless impatience. It’s always awesome to meet a band of extremely skilled musicians at its inception and after discovering that they are beyond awesome, to follow their activity and see how they can evolve and what they can pull off next. Well, the wait is over, their new 7″ EP Old Ways has just landed, and needless to say, it is fucking unbelievably heavy, ridiculously crushing and just all around fucking awesome – once again.
