Hurrah another local band, from Burnley (a small trip down the road), and hell what a band! Powerful, noisy riffs with super thumped drums and you could imagine this guys would be loud as fuck live and leave your ears ringing for days. At points they sound like some unborn child from Skingraft Records, with occasional vocals and spazzed out guitar riffs coming at you like a bare knuckle cage fighter that will leave you half beat to death in a pool of your own blood. Awesome.
These guys are so fucking awesome! They play some great screamo/metal/hardcore music from Brazil. But unlike most bands in these genres they play with intelligence drifting in and out of the said genres with ease and unboundable energy. This is one of the best ep's i have heard in a long time, so get it!
So here is one of my favourite bands of all time! Bouncing out of Washington DC, home of some of the best post hardcore bands ever and these guys in their prime were it. I deciding to go for their first album Dischord No 101 as for me is the most energy packed of of their albums. From the first "Fuck This Shit" lyric to the odd country and western track at the very end then there is many fully complete albums as this. Anyways enough brown nosing, grab a copy.
Dischord No 101
Here's something a bit different. I have been listening to this guy for the past few days. Popping out some great ambient/dance/acid jazzy/chiptune from the Netherlands then this guy has something for everyone. Some of it reminds me of the early 90's dance stuff like 808 State, which is only a good thing. So get your glow sticks ready and get the guys first two albums!

Time for some more Powerviolence/Thrash me thinks. Bullying their way from California come Teeth a straight up no bullshit band that play hard and play fast! The kind of band you can massacre in short waves with Mac 10's.

Ahh great little band from Providence, US. Playing some sweet little instrumental tracks (with occasional vocals) and only being two of them then even bigger kudos for making the sounds pretty full with some decent guitar and drum parts.
They are embarking on a pretty big US tour soon with other wicked bands like Merchant Ships and Broken Chords Can Sing Alittle, so get out there and check them out in the real world. You can listen/download some of their tracks at their Bandcamp site thing.
So here is a great wee label putting out really good punk/ska/hardcore tunes for all you little kids. It's always great to see small labels helping out and doing their best to put out quality music and N.O.P Records are great at what they do.
They have put out bands such as Shatners Revenge, Dregs of Society, Rat Pigeon and some more. All of their releases have also been put up for free download as well on their myspace page, and really are worth a check out.
So support underground music and support the small labels busting their balls to put out great music. Go and check them out at their myspace below.
