Three awesome dudes from the Oakland-based grindcore band Infinite Waste (namely madmen Jamison, Kevin, and Matt) were rad enough to have the brilliant idea to put together a compilation of Bay Area-based bands to give out for free at this year’s first edition of California Deathfest this weekend in Oakland, to show visitors and outsiders attending

Fresno is located in the heart of California. It is the fifth largest city in the best state in America. I spent over a decade living in the area. I dedicated a lot of time and energy focusing on building unity within the underground music community in the hopes of

When I first heard Berlin’s PISS, I said to myself, this band fucking RULES HARD!!! Their demo is an audio injection of uncut raw and filthy fury. Now they are back with a new 7 inch that will be released in the near future via Static Shock Musik. Right here and now, we are stoked to

So what do we have here? A 4-way split with Altar Of Complaints (USA) SeeK (Japan) Thetan (USA) and Stubborn Father (Japan) all coming together to manifest a unique, emotional record. Each band paints its own audio portrait of angst and power. I find it interesting that four bands can

I reviewed this demo on the other blog I write for, Fucked By Noise, but it’s so good that Sean asked me to throw it up here as well. I can’t post download links here, which I do on FBN (wink, wink), but I can still talk about how awesome

G.L.O.S.S. released one of my favorite demos of 2015! Every second of this tape is killer with no filler!!! When I saw that Angela Owens took photos of their most recent performance at the Hardcore Stadium in Cambridge, MA, I knew I had to post it. It’s a trip how

Text & Photos: Nuno Bernardo Not a festival, an experience. Amplifest’s editions get better each year. The beauty of Porto, Portugal, as a city conveys the beauty of the line-up presented for Amplifest’s fifth edition, and we barely had time to catch our breath with all the things happening in each room of Hard Club

Lets face it – the working week is bullshit. You, me, and everyone we know are all just perpetuating the cycle of exploited labor for an unlivable wage (at least in the U.S., anyway) while our bosses and managers profit off our inevitable demise into lifeless surrogates that live to

Photos: Em Demarco Humans flow like garbage out into the boulevards and avenues destroying nearly everything in their path. Every third weekend of August in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the town comes alive with miscreants, criminals, street urchins and other such fodder. In addition to “Little Italy Days,” a 4-day punk festival named,
