NEXT YA UPDATE COMING 05/14/21

115. THE CONSEQUENCE S/T CS

As we gaze upon the smoldering hellscape, we are witnesses of what equates to a scurry of rats fighting for control over a giant trash pile. If anything, it’s extremely cool to note that we have a fascinating study in decay and despair, where pretty much everybody in this great cast of characters is fair game for a hideous demise. If you happen to be the next victim of a rat attack, know that it was the doings of your usual bog standard enemy, wholly disgusting in every way and who harmed you out of the unjust power granted to them from some hidden figure above. While one simply cannot wait for all of them to be dead, if these scavengers are fated to rule their devastated wasteland, one might consider if, for now, it’s better to just let them have it. Here in the underground society where beleaguered souls gather, one views struggle for what it truly is: we aspire to be our best, to maximize our potential and to never break in the face of opposition. Though the rats outnumber us, they can never harm our souls which they understand and hate. In the end they know they will pay, and that will be THE CONSEQUENCE.

 

Listen to “The Consequence/Target on My Back” & “Cast Out”:

114. VEIL II “Negative Space” EP

One can glean some indication of the intensity of VEIL II just from the fact that it is a collaboration between Matthew Adis and James Trejo—two men who can only produce music that expresses their total and complete contempt for this world. Inevitably, these visionaries of menacing hardcore classics like SALVATION’S “Mortality Interactions” and CADAVER DOG’S “Dying Breed” found themselves in the same bedroom studio and, upon pressing record on the 4 track, a tortured serendipity ensued. The results speak for themselves. The music, though possessed of overwhelming ability, is delivered in a straightforward manner as if to clarify, ‘yes, you all suck—everything sucks.’ Their audacity is shocking, but it has the effect of instilling in the listener a warranted rage and craving for release from the prison we call existence. What’s more, there is a science fiction element to VEIL II that leaves one with a depressing feeling toward the world to come. It is as if Negative Space abandons one to endlessly stumble through a smoky, post-apocalyptic landscape of bones, which in its own curious way is comforting. If you feel your reality deserves to topple, then let VEIL II be the boot that kicks it over. 

Listen to “Memory Vault” & “Clarity I”:

113. MANGLED STATE “Pain Incarnate” Flexi

Now that we are in the End Times, “normal” means living in constant fear and enduring nightmares forever. One may feel the instinct to flee, but safety is nowhere to be found. What has grabbed us will not let go. Look away all you want, but eventually you will face the situation: we are in a new Dark Age. Others take comfort in the fact that none of this comes as any surprise. MANGLED STATE provides us with a vision of unflinching realism to remind us all that exists is pain, because pain is all. Houses reduced to rubble, decay, disease…welcome to your new life; yet these trivialities are merely incidental to the human condition. You will tolerate more than you ever thought possible, but it requires understanding that life will never again be as easy as it is right now. It is to say that in exchange for present comforts we gain future strength, but to do so is to pass through its flames. What will you endure?

Listen to “Parasites” & “Concrete Eyes”:

112. COMBAT FORCE “Never Stray” EP

At last the incredible followup to Combat Force’s savage demo has arrived, showing them at peak hostility, once more brandishing their barbaric style to lay waste the musical landscape as only the Denver scene can. The six songs on Never Stray show the band expanding their sound to reflect the vast influences that went into its masterful creation, resulting in a timeless assault on all that is weak and unworthy. 

Listen to “Worthless generation” & “The End”:

111. GRINNING DEATH’S HEAD “Cataclysm” 7″

The blackness of the universe is encapsulated within one’s skull which finds expression in the horror we call living. Unceasing as daily tribulations are, by virtue of our continued existence we encourage them all the same. Life thus is a prolonged justification of a ceaseless downgrade, like a distant star flickering ever softer until lost in the black hole of infinity. Content only with the conviction of our grievances, our true purpose—death—arrives all too easily, until finally, successful in our duty, we reach our denouement. 

 
Following up on the Blood War LP, GRINNING DEATH’S HEAD returns with two relentless assaults, driving their sound deeper into cryptic realms with a razor sharp focus that will skewer your soul. 
 
Listen to “Acrid Damnation”:

110. GOODBYE WORLD “At Death’s Door” LP

As modern music bleeds out in a hopelessly boring death spiral, one must regard the output on Youth Attack like an ancient sword with mystical powers forged out of a comet which makes it glow blue. While undiscerning music fans can be likened to the victims of a serial killer con-man, GOODBYE WORLD are the jaded detectives assigned to the case—and yet, they let the victims die as they deserve in order to protect the sword and deliver it to its rightful owner—you. On At Death’s Door there is no time for negotiation; in only 12 minutes, legendary frontman Aaron Aspinwall comes out guns blazing and wreaks havoc over a hurricane of riffs and drum beats that hit like a ton of bricks and once the smoke clears the megaforce of Jeff Jelen, Mark McCoy, John Menchaca and James Trejo are standing in the rubble.

This exciting debut LP features 15 hardcore songs laden with wild guitar solos and psychotic drum fills and lyrics about gore-soaked car crashes, being hacked to pieces, hanging out in graveyards and driving off of cliffs—all of which culminate in a sound that only YA can produce: say hello to GOODBYE WORLD. 

Listen to “Blood and Bone,” “Fetch the Blade,” and “Hacked to Pieces”:

· GOODBYE WORLD “At Death’s Door” LP

· GRINNING DEATH’S HEAD “Cataclysm” 7″

· MANGLED STATE “Pain Incarnate” Flexi

· VEIL II “Negative Space” EP

· THE CONSEQUENCE CS

Stay tuned for details…

 

VILE GASH

Photo by Cali DeWitt

YA talks with Andrew Hinton, vocalist of VILE GASH. This is a previously lost interview conducted in June, 2011.

In what ways does the life perspective of someone involved in the hardcore scene differ from that of “conventional” people?

I think that conventional people are just looking for the easiest way to get through every day. They’re completely content with just accepting what is given to them. They lie to themselves, associate with the people that they claim to hate and engage in the same acts as these people. They are just as bad as the people they despise. I would like to think that the people involved with hardcore are different, but I know that most are not.

109. ARTS “Graveside Summoning” EP

After completing nine years of occult study and seclusion, ARTS has manifested “Graveside Summoning,” containing four malevolent spells that seal the listener in a labyrinth of insanity. These compositions unleash a full-frontal assault of venomous vocals with riffs encircled in sepulchral fog to swallow you in a black abyss. .:AA:. returns from the shadows to stake his claim as the magus of aural chants, while .:MM:. conjures symphonic angels to poison your mind with confusion and doubt so that you may never rest again. In the dark years since the release of their monumental album, “Vault of Heaven,” ARTS has maintained their throttling style while developing a heightened sense of enchantment that has been painstakingly crafted within their furtive denomination to achieve maximum poisonous effect.

Listen to “Daemonomie” & “Graveside Summoning”: 

 

108. LIFE SUPPORT “Die Like a Man” EP

There’s no horror that we don’t create ourselves. In a world where success is achieved through the sufferings of others, our souls are but scraps floating in and out of corpses, blurring the line between the dead and the living. LIFE SUPPORT serves as an antidote to our waking death with a command to view mortality as a chance for good, as all else is a fantasy poisoning the heads of men.

Denver HC legend James Trejo and Mark McCoy team up for this 5-song debut of pounding American hardcore, recorded by audio master Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios.

Listen to “Die Like a Man” & “Status”:

107. MANGLED STATE “Stigma” 6″

As voyeurs of a burning world, we find ourselves living in a perpetual aftermath of real-time destruction. This horror has seeped into our souls, leaving us isolated, bitter, and betrayed. MANGLED STATE observe this all too clearly. On their caustic debut they articulate the feeling of having one’s back to the wall with no choice left but to lash out.

Initially conceived as a two piece, this Houston, Texas outfit showcases J. Everett & J. Bokemeyer pounding through 5 tracks of minimalist U.S. hardcore in a style that has come to define Youth Attack’s vision: direct, hostile and unapologetic.

Listen to Stigma & Scowl:

106. SNARLING HATE “How to Kill” 7″

Throughout history, the trials of mankind have been carved not by policy, but by blood. On an archetypal level, the fate of the world rests upon its unwillingness to submit. At a time in history when “empowerment” is just another trick of the establishment to seduce the powerless into conformity, true power rests in one’s refusal to accept their terms.

On their debut 7”, SNARLING HATE showcases this with two stomping hardcore anthems to fill the listener with courage, contempt and hope. Legendary frontman Shaun Dean, with his unmistakable growl, delivers a stunning vocal performance, while Denver stalwart James Trejo astonishes again by performing all instruments with his usual mastery. With additional guitar by Matt Wilga (Cancer Kids, Failures, Suburbanite), SNARLING HATE has been unleashed.

Listen to “Takeover”: 

105. VILE GASH “Agonized Corrosion” CS

We know that, while happiness is ideal, it is the work of the imagination. The prison of the mind, constructed in such a fashion as to fester one’s torments, is a cruel testament of nature, held at bay by our hostile environment which seeks to eliminate us from existence. Day by day and brick by brick, we console ourselves with platitudes and toil for the continuation of future generations who die unfulfilled.

As a testament to the brevity of existence, VILE GASH returns with “Agonized Corrosion.” Recorded under extreme conditions, these three audial detonators explode with furious destruction to convey yet again the horrible certainty we face.

Listen to “Languish in Mindset” & “Agonized Corrosion:

 

 

104. CREEP STARE “Pain Game” EP

Exploding out of the deep San Antonio, Texas underground, Creep Stare drop a bombshell of pure hardcore misanthropy with their astounding 10 song EP, “Pain Game.” Taking a no-frills, classic approach steeped in modern world misery, they deliver a high-impact barrage of throttled riffs and gruff vocals, aided by an unhinged performance by session drummer and Denver HC legend, James Trejo (Cadaver Dog, Life Support). At it’s most honest, hardcore shows us that life is inevitably about dying. Therefore, we must learn to suffer, because, as vocalist Josh Everett declares, your reality’s fucking caved in.

Listen to “Pain Game” & “Blood Ties”: 

103. CITY HUNTER “Dying Breed” LP

After gaining infamy with two long-sold out cassettes and a slew of deadly, knife-wielding live performances, City Hunter’s long-awaited full length album, “Deep Blood,” delivers 14 fatal stab wounds to engulf the listener in a delirious pool of hell. Soaked in filthy atmosphere and laced with grim interludes, this is not your feel-good retro horror, but a sickening manifestation of death and destruction. With a fully developed sound, this audial hallucination of murder and torment is a living nightmare you can’t escape.

Listen to “living Nightmare” & “Dying Out”:

102. SUBURBANITE LP

Like a burning skyscraper collapsing in a city siege, SUBURBANITE launches a full-scale takeover with total sonic decimation. Discharging a relentless veteran onslaught of breakneck hardcore led by irate frontman Chris O’Coin, the band fires off an intolerant, hostile and warlike approach, anchoring their debut in one brooding anthem after another. Purveyors of the Bruiser Beat sound, this is New York Hard Core for a new age. Rising up from the ruins of the genre’s failed past while dismissing contemporary values with arrogant disregard, SUBURBANITE calls forth the End Times so that intruders, trapped in a sick and insane society, have no choice but to wreck vengeance upon it.

Listen to “Combat Shock” & “Shots Ring Out”:

101. CADAVER DOG “Dying Breed” LP

Easily the most negative hardcore album of all time, CADAVER DOG’s debut LP showcases Denver one-man-army James Trejo as he flies off the handle like no one else—a visionary single-handedly shaping hardcore into what it should have always been. “Dying Breed” unleashes a savage musical assault, dialed to astounding levels of ferocity. These 15 songs can be considered the end conclusion to hardcore’s aim, with a sound both timeless and fresh, assuring the listener that this is what nearly 40 years of bands have tried to achieve. Coming off the “Blunt Force Trauma” flexi from last year, “Dying Breed” is a rampage of relentless chord changes, rabid vocals and blazing tempos that fly by with the dizzying delirium of a fistfight. An album that lives up to its title in every regard, and aggressive lyrics that go further than any other “hardcore” band, “Dying Breed” is proof that CADAVER DOG stands alone.

Listen to “Blindsight: and “Repulsed”:

100. CHARLES BRONSON “Youth Attack!” 25TH Anniversary Edition

Perhaps no hardcore band of the late 90s embodies the spirit of youth and the cynicism of Gen X better than Charles Bronson. Humorous and sarcastic, yet heartfelt and sincere, the band showcased the absurdity of being young and told to feel excited about an inevitable future of debt slavery, career entrapment, divorce, and all the usual misery that comes with being an adult.

After just three years as a band in rural Dekalb, Illinois, and written at a lightning pace while playing shows virtually every weekend, “Youth Attack!” showcases Charles Bronson with a fully developed and innovative style, delivering 20 relentless songs at a breakneck pace in just over 12 minutes. With lyrics that address everything from corporate chains swallowing up small towns to the allure of escapism, the band sought to push the form of hardcore forward in a way that was more personal and relatable while remaining steeped in the classic influences of the genre—an ethos that carries over to Youth Attack Records today.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, and for the first time in decades, “Youth Attack!” is now available for a limited time, tastefully remastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, sounding crazier and more poignant than ever. “As adult oblivion beckons, now’s the time…”

“Marriage Can Suck It” 25th Anniversary Remaster:

“Marriage Can Suck It” 25th Anniversary Mix:

“What’s Wrong With Me (Faith cover, Live ’97)”:

99. VILE GASH “Nightmare in a Damaged Brain” LP

A masterpiece years in the making, this 12-track expurse of barbarity leaves the entire genre of hardcore in a smoldering crater. VILE GASH has achieved a fully-realized vision, delivering what can only be described as the end of music. Clocking in at just over 10 minutes, the album explodes in a barrage of hatred and disgust, each song showcasing a bitter contempt for life. Their blunt execution has intensified, becoming harsher and uglier, ranging in tempos the band has never before achieved with a perfect, grinding production that showcases the hideous nature of their riffs. This is a feel-bad experience like no other, and to listen is to feel yourself compelled to sickening violence. “Nightmare in a Damaged Brain” is the final command for existence, from which nothing shall follow.

Listen to “Obedient” & “Putrid Face”:

The 4 new EP’s slated for October have been pushed back due to revisions with the custom packaging design. Thanks for your support and patience. More info soon.

VILE GASH return with a furious new three song demo housed in an oversized case. To purchase, visit the YA store.

On Wednesday, Feb. 14th at a random time, the next YA update will go up and feature all three new LP’s, including limited versions as well new distro items.

THE REPOS

YA talks with vocalist Aaron, guitarist Joe, original bassist Adam and drummer Craig of THE REPOS on the occasion of their reissued first two LPs.

S/T LP—2004

2017  Deluxe Remastered 180gm vinyl reissue available here

For several years prior to The Repos, Craig, Joe, and Aaron all played together in The Mushuganas. Describe the transition between bands and your decision to switch from playing traditional punk rock to fast hardcore. How did Adam come aboard?

Aaron: The Mushuganas were kind of being forced to its end due to personnel issues. Basically, we were without a drummer. The three of us had been friends for quite a long stint at this point and really enjoyed playing music together. Not only was it a matter of enjoyment, but we clicked musically. We all connected on a level that I have found rare in playing music with others throughout the years. I don’t think we were ever stuck on playing a certain style of music since all of us have a vast background of musical interests. The transition felt like if you and your best friends lost a job working at a restaurant and all found a new job together at a construction site. I was fond of Adam from his time playing in a band with Sutfin and Arends back in the DeKalb/Sycamore days. I remembered him as having a good sense of humor and a variety of talents in art and music. I arranged a meeting with him at a now defunct bar in Chicago owned by Chuck Uchida of the great Attica Studios. The three of us had already recorded the demo so I came equipped with a tape and a plan to hook him. We talked over a couple drinks and I convinced him to try it out.

98. COMBAT FORCE Demo EP

Hailing from the agitated Denver, Colorado underground, COMBAT FORCE comes out swinging with this 4-song EP of feral hardcore. Drawing influences from the great classics, COMBAT FORCE stampedes forth in a timeless manner, taking no prisoners and delivering over-the-top vocals and insanely catchy riffs captured with perfect lo-fi production by Denver scene stalwart, James Trejo (CADAVER DOG, CIVILIZED, CULTURE SHOCK). Mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios and originally self-released on cassette, this EP features a stunning gatefold sleeve with all new artwork printed on uncoated stock with a black flood and houses an extra-thick 70gm white vinyl 7″. This incredible introduction to the band anticipates their forthcoming EP due out on YA in 2018.

97. CIVILIZED “Chopping Block” LP

Despite their geographic isolation, Denver’s CIVILIZED have emerged as elites in the hardcore underground. Building upon their stellar Dust and Blood EP, they unveil 13 new songs with a mastery that surpasses their influences. This is how eternal US Hardcore is made: raise the standard with scrutiny and persistence, smash all that is mediocre with brute force and aspire toward truth by eliminating all that is not real. Through these aims, CIVILIZED unveils a classic. Chopping Block is a tour de force of modern hardcore—a barrage of hooks and jaw-dropping shifts delivered in a burst of youthful fury. Zach Reini’s vocals astound as he leads the way in a sequence of perfectly executed compositions that balance time-honored motifs with dizzying variety. Engineered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, with an unforgettable cover shot by acclaimed photographer Daniel Shea, CIVILIZED has laid your neck on the line.

Listen to “Stagnate” & “All the Same”:

 

96. CULTURE SHOCK LP

Urban life promises many rewards—lies that foster complacency and addiction. In the cities where these hotbeds fester, we observe in real time how societies fail. After a period of crisis, horrifying acts are normalized. Drugs become one’s identity, hype is power, ego is abuse.

For the lone wolves and free thinkers disgusted by the mainstream echo chamber, they scorn the idea of getting along with self-proclaimed role models and their bland, conventional “fun.” CULTURE SHOCK is a fist in the teeth of the Good Life, with an outrageous vendetta to take out the entitled parasites ruining the world.

CULTURE SHOCK’s debut is an unapologetic and relentless pummel of US hardcore. Each of these 10 anthems delivers a feral intensity that we’ve come to expect from the Denver scene. Recorded on analog tape in Denver, Colorado and mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, maniacal vocalist Geoff D. sums it up it best when he proclaims “The Pack is small, but the bite is hard!”

Listen to “Culture Shock” & “Lone Wolves”:

Eschewing any notion of self-righteous victimhood, CADAVER DOG goes on a rampage with cyclonic chord progressions, harsh tempo shifts and an over-the-top-vocal performance that lays waste the stagnant, crowd-friendly cesspool of today’s scene. This is pure, nihilistic hardcore topped off with a superb rendition of LOCKJAW’s classic, “Need A Gun.”

THE REPOS “Poser” LP

2d8702d0-9460-443a-a090-a10bf4544f6e

With a legacy spanning 14 years, THE REPOS reign as living legends at the forefront of contemporary Hardcore. Their first two albums are undisputed sought-after classics. Following years of incredible tape and EP releases, they finally usher forth their most accomplished work yet: Poser. Sounding more unhinged than ever, guitarist Joe Phillips shines while cult frontman Aaron Aspinwall delivers his best and most visual lyrics to date. Poser has an unrelenting ferocity that paints a gritty vision of life on the outskirts that few dare tread. THE REPOS are the embodiment of all that YOUTH ATTACK represents: outstanding, pure, uncompromising Hardcore.

 

ABSOLUTE POWER S/T LP

367a1fc5-0663-48d5-8f81-09e72b8e5370

On their highly-anticipated debut ABSOLUTE POWER drops the hammer with 16 songs of unbridled East Coast U.S. Hardcore. In a tornado of anthemic riffs and tempo changes they set the stage for an all-out tear down of authority led by vocalist Chris O’Coin’s insane performance. Through themes of security, violence, and voyeurism the band strips away the bullshit to reveal a hideous raw sound that burns with aggression. Recorded by Ian Jacyszyn in NYC and mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air with artwork by renown illustrator and ex-CHARLES BRONSON guitarist, Mike Sutfin. This is music from time-tested YA alumni (featuring members from FAILURES, SUBURBANITE & AEROSOLS) that delivers beyond all conceivable standards. ABSOLUTE POWER stands ready to rule.

 

Both albums also available now from Bandcamp.

Devouring Ghost cover93. DEVOURING GHOST Soundtrack

Mark McCoy’s latest solo drawing exhibition, Devouring Ghost, opened 04.17.15 at Weltkunstzimmer in Düsseldorf, Germany. To coincide with the nine drawings in the exhibition, he created a special edition soundtrack to play in the gallery. Each musical composition relates to a visual work on display, presented in an array of stripped-down black metal and ambient tracks. The album spans two LPs and was composed in collaboration with Ian Jacyszyn (Absolute Power, Suburbanite) and Ryan Martin (Dais Records, Copley Medal). Devouring Ghost deals with the transience and mutability of a technically-constructed world. Symbols of decay and mortality reflect the ambivalent and unconscious desire for death.

91. ANCESTORS “In Death” EP

After Death, nothing is, and Nothing, Death, The utmost Limit of a Gasp of Breath:  Let the ambitious Zealot lay aside, His hopes of Heav’n (whose Faith is but his Pride) 

In Death marks a reestablishment for ANCESTORS. Following their trilogy concerning the ambiguity of death and reality come these four cobweb-ridden canticles entombed in an oppressive, decayed atmosphere. Echoing this transience into the black embrace of eternity is a violent, swirling cacophony with focus given to refining compositional structures to mirror both the nuances of lost remembrances and to glorify the hallucinatory nature of despair.  

Listen to “That Which I Should Have Done I Did Not Do” & “Reliquary Ashes”: 

 

 

 

90. FAILURES “Decline and Fall” LP

Failures unveil their magnum opus dissonance with Decline and Fall.  It is a work years in the making, of painstaking scrutiny and craftsmanship, delivered in an agonized effort to boil down the very essence of what it means to endure the habitual torments of existence. In just over 14 minutes these 14 songs dissect the intricacies and endless defeats that coincide with our fruitless pursuit of happiness and fulfillment, and illustrate how, by rendering these hopeless, baseless projections of our deepest insecurities, we come to define our demise as the very core of our lives. Humanity’s toil may endure, but whether we drag along for the ride or tumble off into a ditch to rot makes no difference either way. 

Listen to  “Time For Reflection” & “Errands”

89. CIVILIZED “Dust and Blood” EP

Denver’s CIVILIZED react violently to their environment with an all-out assault on those spineless and disloyal cowards that we call “friends.”  On these 8 songs we hear timeless hardcore delivered at its highest intensity, with singer Zach Reini’s ferocious delivery leading the offensive in a tour de force of rage and revenge. As proof of Dust and Blood’s authority, those familiar with their Negative Reflection Demo will take note of their augmented aggression and now masterful execution of riffs, breakdowns, and tempo shifts that heretofore stand unparalleled. You’re all to burn!

Listen to “Numb” & “Fracture”:

88. GRINNING DEATH’S HEAD “Blood War” LP

After five secluded years of death worship and occult study, GRINNING DEATH’S HEAD calls forth Blood War. A mature work of painstaking devotion, it presents nature as an evil force propelling life toward a violent demise.

Where past recordings assaulted with crude provocation, Blood War deploys a newfound clarity that builds upon previous achievements. The basement haze of years past is stripped away, revealing spatial chasms that resound with sinister majesty. With the addition of conspirators M. McCoy and I. Jacyszyn, J. Wood commands with a fierce compositional focus. Despite the minimal instrumentation, the songs achieve a heightened narrative structure and march unwaveringly through pillaged landscapes toward mankind’s deserved end.

Recorded in New York City and in Sugar Hill, Georgia and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, Blood War is a transcendent display of superiority that answers the call to death.

Listen to “Year of the Snake” & “Hunter”:

87. THE REPOS “Lost Still Losing” CS

“Lost Still Losing” is the 17 song full length by THE REPOS recorded in 2012 that never saw the light of day until now. Some of those tracks were later self-released by the band as “Poison Head” on a self-released sold-out cassette. Here finally is the complete session entirely remastered and presented in its original glory. This features some of the band’s finest material to date with blazing raw hardcore anthems and disturbing life-on-the-fringes lyrics by Aaron Aspinwall written in a style like none other. Hands down one of the most seminal bands to have ever emerged from the underground.

Listen to “Gone Get Goner” & “Hot Shot Fever”:

Next YA update scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24.

AVAILABLE  SOON:

· THE REPOS “Lost Still Losing” 17 song CS in handmade packaging

“Western Massachusetts’ HOAX presents their highly anticipated self-titled, self-released 12 track debut LP. After a relentless string of EP’s and tours, this release marks a new standard in DIY hardcore punk. Taking their pummeling, mid-tempo sound and expanding it into something far sicker and hideous, they have leveled the horizon with a series of anthems as you’ve never heard before. A huge collaborative effort masterfully engineered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air studios, this LP features contributions from 14 of the underground’s finest artists (Cali DeWitt, Mark McCoy, Matt Adis, Shawn Fillley, Sugi, Heather Benjamin, Sam Ryser, Emma Kohlmann, Guillem El Muro, Alex Heir, Colin Swanson-White, Jaybo Gardner, and Tony Pasquarosa), and comes housed in a full-color, double-scored folder enclosing 6 double-sided poster sized inserts.”

All missing items received. The YA Update will be happening tonight. Stay tuned.

Sincere apologies to everyone waiting for the update. I know last minute delays are extremely disappointing, especially with so many great artists and supporters involved. Every effort is being taken to make this update happen as soon as possible. As of now, there will be only one update early next week. Because of last minute shipping delays and unexpected server problems, yesterday’s plan was thrown off. After considering the potential headaches in issuing refunds from combined orders for two separate updates, the idea has now been aborted. Therefore, once the final items arrive–hopefully on Monday, they will go up for sale immediately. Thank you for your ever-expanding patience.

85. FINAL GRIN S/T CS

With a stripped down delivery, Chicago trio FINAL GRIN step forth with this seven-song cassette of deliberately paced and chanted orations drenched in mysticism and the gleaming awe of Death.  Perfectly produced by Ryan Lowry (RAW NERVE, SKRAPYARD) and mastered by Will Killingsworth (FAILURES, VEINS). Features black chrome tapes, oversized soft vinyl cases, lyric pamphlet, and full color foldout poster inserts.

Listen to “First You Need Fear”:

 

84. THE ROPES “Vietnam II” CS

On their fourth cassette release, THE ROPES let loose another turbulent whirlwind of caustic urban hardcore with lyrics of isolated life on the fringes and riffs that hearken a timeless adolescent enthusiasm before everything went horribly wrong. Initially self-released in an edition of 100 cassettes on a weekend summer tour, the original 4-track tapes have been fully revamped and remixed by Ian Jacyszyn (VEINS, SUBURBANITE) for maximum force, including a jaw-dropping version of “22 Going On 23” by BUTTHOLE SURFERS. Presented on black chrome cassettes in meticulous, handcrafted fold-over flap box covers and inserts.

Listen to “Gonna Get Through to You” & “22 Going On 23”:

 

83. THE ROPES “Always Nothing” CS

Showing no sign of slacking off, THE ROPES continue their astounding legacy on their third cassette, Always Nothing. With seemingly effortless command, they reveal not only their capability of classic rock by interweaving random interlude renditions of JAMES GANG’s “The Bomber,” but stamp out everything in their path with some of their most forceful anthems yet. Features black chrome cassette tapes in meticulous handcrafted fold-over flap box covers and inserts. Always nothing, always none!

Listen to “Always Nothing”: 

82. THE ROPES Demo II EP

Following their stunning debut S/T EP, legends THE ROPES immediately tore forth with a second self-released demo tape for one show in Cleveland, which was then remastered by Will Killingsworth and given a deluxe, revamped layout as a limited vinyl release for Record Store Day in Chicago. Reissued again is this incredibly enraged five-song, six-minute masterpiece of stripped down, blown out hardcore helmed by monstrous vocalist icon Aaron Aspinwall. Featuring a rendition of DEAD BOYS’ “Down in Flames” arguably better than the original, with a 12 panel fold out glossy poster, double sided cover sheet, and obi card and pressed to heavy clear vinyl in an edition of 200.  Listen to “Hitchhiker,” “Went Gone,” & “Love Me”:

81. RAW NERVE “Every Problem Solved” EP

Chicago hardcore legends RAW NERVE have gone out burning down the whole city with this final four-song frenzy to top off one of the most uncompromising runs in recent hardcore history. Eschewing the reassurance of sing-alongs and melodies, RAW NERVE fixates on the insular world of loneliness and the search for meaning by tearing apart all falsehoods with a bitter vengeance. This is combustive, youthful hardcore at its finest. Features heavy tip-on 7” jackets, 8 page photo booklets, and thick vinyl.

Listen “Wired Nation” & “Daily Reminder”:

80. ANCESTORS III LP

ANCESTORS III consummates their trilogy with nine hymns to the phantom of Death. Steeped in atmosphere and violence, each track builds only to topple into devastating collapse. Showcasing a focused clarity of both sound and composition to transport the listener into an otherworldly realm, this recording culminates their genre melding of raw hardcore and lo-fi black metal and careens with an agonized velocity as if each moment is more painful than the last.

Listen to “III”:
