Yep more thrash. This time from the US, and a great band that show no compromise on record or live. Fast, furious and some witty social commentary. Get this and ten minutes later you'll want to be in a thrash band...and who doesn't!
Find Him And Kill Him - Cut Them To Pieces
Dirty Grindy/Powerviolence from these evil kids from Germany. They did split up at one time and then came back to put out another record (as far as i am aware, i could be very very wrong), either way this is awesome, fast, brutal and kicks you in the face, steals your wallet and then uses the money to buy your girlfriend a bunch of roses on Valentines day.....
So here is Claire Danes (if you are not already a fan that is), a great punk/pop/emo kinda band from Rochester, New York. The songs are just a nice size and play through quite easy with up beat drums and pop like guitar riffs then it all adds up to be rather fucking good!
Below is their first 2 demo's, but go and wave hello to them and buy one of their awesome T-Shirts!

So here is a repost for the Haroldshitman/WWWW boys as they are trying to plan out a summer tour across the UK. They are looking for dates between 2nd - 11th July but if you can help then go to their profiles and send them a message with any details and spread the love.
Here is the split we did together and it is ohh so awesome - ZX004 xHaroldshitmanx/WWWW Split Tape

Here's some more great Hip Hop. A live band that throws down some dope funk/soul jams with some great rhymes thrown over the top. It really is a good slice into the lives of these guys with heart felt lyrics at points and a good sum up of their scene out there. Can't rate this album highly enough.
Heiruspecs - Small Steps
One of the best hardcore/punk/thrash bands to have ever come out of the UK in many many years. They split up many moons ago but they still live on as a high standard for other bands to follow. The songs are fast, intense and pretty creative. Not just the standard boring old formula's which does plague these genres somewhat, they switch up the styles at lightning fast tempo's without compromising the melodies at any point. They were that good!
This has to be a must!!!

Super great little band these guys are. Playing some great blistering punk/hardcore stuff they really are quite good and defiantly worth a sneaky peek at especially as they have just dropped their new CD on Blue or Yellow cd's for 3 Dollars, How's that for a deal! So get over there and buy one!
