Holier Than Thou?

Holier Than Thou? formed in May of 1999. This band is influenced by a lot of old bands, especially '80s hardcore/metal and '70s Rock which you can hear back in their music. Like their myspace page says 'Black Sabbath on 45 speed'. Anyhow, this band is trash to the core. Enjoy.

Koro was a hardcore punk band from Knoxville, Tennessee that formed in 1983 and called it a day in 1984. They quickly became one of the fastest, tightest, meanest hardcore bands on the planet. The band might have been forgotten if not for a remarkable self-released 8 song 7” (700 club EP), recorded in 1983.

Terminal Youth

They were an amazing fastcore/thrashcore band from Ipswich, MA wich sounds just like something that would come out of YA! and since I and most of the people lurking this shitty ass blog are fans of said label, I thought I'd post it for your satisfaction. You'll dig it.

Info on the bands on their splits:

(Hostile Takeover was a trashcore band from San Jose, CA.
Fruit Salad is an, of course, thrashy queercore band from Boston, MA. THRASH, THRASH, THRASH.)

9 Shocks Terror

Do you ever make up a dance and stomp your feet and punch an old pillow?
Or do you have a loud song that you can sing when you're angry?
Here's some loud music which just sounds like it's saying; " I'm angry. I'm very, very angry."

Cleveland, Ohio hardcore band. Active from 1996-2007.

Iron Lung

So since I posted the Iron Lung/Walls/PHT album, why not post more of the Iron Lung shit that I've got. I think it's most of their stuff. Anyway, they are a powerviolence/grindcore band from Seattle, Washington. They are fucking hard.

Iron Lung/Walls/Pig Heart Transplant

This, first and foremost, is NOT a split. Recorded live at The Vera Project in Seattle on Halloween night 2008, this was a one-time performance by all three bands collaborating as one super band. Six members in total. The sounds recorded this day were deranged, devastating and truly scary. New arrangements of three IRON LUNG songs, three WALLS songs and two PHT noise pieces. On top of that, they wrote two brand new songs and threw in a cover just to spice things up. Twenty nine minutes worth of total noise and depression sound. Absolutely crushing.

Order 66

Order 66 were a grind and powerviolence influenced (very loud) hardcore trio from Cincinnati, Ohio. Angst filled and hateful. Brings to mind bands such as Crossed Out, Tragedy, Bucket Full of Teeth & Ampere. Weird ish combo.

So it seems that most of the good hardcore and punk bands in Sweden come from Norrland (northern parts). This is an awesome oldschool hardcore punk band from Umeå, Sweden. Even though they look and sound like they are an 80's band, they are not. They have existed from the early 00's and they still do to this day. They are about to release their second LP soon. Features members from E.T.A. and The Vicious.

Social Circkle

Social Circkle is a band from Boston, MA playing oldschool hardcore/punk. They are fast, catchy, pissed off and still fun. They have released one demo, two ep's and now an LP and this is, hands down, probobly the record of the year. They play a lot faster than they have done previously and it is just better in overall.
I also saw them live last week and it was the sickest show I've been to in a while. They are currently touring Europe so don't miss out on that. You can find info about the tour HERE.

Black flag worshiping band from Seattle, WA. They play noisy, raw and really angry oldschool hardcore punk. They were formed 2001, broke up 2004. Members are now to be found in bands such as Walls, Country Club, Men's Interest and more. I think this is everything they released.

United Mutation

United Mutation was a hardcore band from Washington DC. They existed from 1981 to 1987 and I think they did some reunion shows afterwards. They were definatly one of the most odd hardcore bands of their time and they had a raw punk 'n' roll sound with creepy vocals. Old school hardcore from hell.

Charm City Suicides

This is some oldschool shit right here from Baltimore, Maryland. I'm not sure how to describe them. Kinda hardcore, kinda screamo. Noisy? It's awesome anyway.

Mecht Mensch

Mecht Mensch was a hardcore outfit from Madison, WI, who formed in the early 80’s. Really great varied Midwest HC tempo.


Monday, October 12, 2009


SQRM is a hardcore band from Western Massachusetts whose music is made from a thousand different influences or none at all. Listeners are whipped by the snottiest of snotty punk vocals, they are drudged through three-minute tracks of droning, heavily bent guitar strings, they are stormed by weirdo thrash riffs. With members from Aerosols.




Raw Nerve

Raw Nerve is a band from Chicago. They play fast and awesome hardcore in the Youth Attack! style. It is hard to hear the hidden awesomeness in this horrible sounding demo though. It sounds like it's been recorded on a mobilephone or an mp3.

Nazti Skinz

Nazti Skinz’ brilliant concept consisted of four talented and well known personalities who only wanted to play five shows, write six songs, and release 500 copies of a crummy looking record. This, they thought, would safely undercut the probability of ultimately sucking as most bands do. As a result, they cashed all their chips in here and recorded the most brilliant single nobody’s ever heard.

Half Man

Half Man was a mid-90's hardcore/punk rock band from Long Island, NY. They sounded oldschool but still not and they somehow remind me of Give Up The Ghost. As the time went on the band changed sound a bit into emocore direction. Still awesome.

Ancient Wound


Sunday, September 27, 2009


This is one the best releases I have heard so far this year. This 2 minute demo is pretty much 'mind eraser goes youth attack!'. I need more of this band.



Hjertestop (Heart failure?) is a punk/oldschool hardcore band from Copenhagen, Denmark. Not sure what else to say? Just listen to it.


(In lack of other photos of the band. found this on their mysapce. Assuming it's one of them.)

As said in previous Afflictions post, here is the beyond brand new 7" of Genders. It hasn't been released yet but it's here for promotion purposes. This shit fucking rules. Same angry, fast thrashcore as before. Buy this if you like it, I sure as hell will. Sorry for not uploading it straight away, Jeff.

Too stoked...

"AEROSOLS LP has been mastered and will go to press shortly along with LP's by both ARTS and GRINNING DEATH'S HEAD. VILE GASH is near completion of their incredible 10 song debut EP. Few words do justice to these important works.

We will have copies of the VACCINE 7" in the store shortly, don't sleep on this one.

Further down the road expect milestones by torchbearers RAW/NERVE and NAZI DUST."

holy shit.

Chronic Sick

They were a New Jersey hardcore band formed all the way back in 1981. They were known for their "offensive" lyrics but awesome music and were hated by pretty much everyone. They also released a 7" and a demo. Just this year they got together for a 27 year reunion show and apparently they also released a new album. I have yet to check it out.

Middle Class

Middle Class from Santa Ana, California, were one of the first “hardcore” bands in history. (Debate continues to this day as to whether Middle Class were the first hardcore band or if Black Flag or Bad Brains were.) Their sound evolved from being a blistering, shouted, arty version of punk which would be extremely influential to the hardcore sound that would emerge in the years following their first release.

If you hear this band you would say 'Joy Divison has gone hardcore'.


Gang Green

Gang Green was a 80's hardcore band existing from 1982 'til 1990 and after that they did a few reunions not worth mentioning, really. After their first break up in their first year, vocalist Christ Doherty joined Jerry's Kids on their record "Is This My World?" but Gang Green got back together in '85. Gang Green were one of the fastest bands of their time and that's just how I like my hardcore. This album is probobly my favourite 80's hardcore record and just listen to 'Kill A Commie' and you know what I mean.

Blank Stare

"We may or may not be writing and recording a new seven inch sometime soon."

Blank Stare was an amazing straight edge band from Boston, MA, featuring members from Social Circkle. They play thrashy oldschool hc and they do it very well. They have released two EP's and this LP.
(Not to be confused by uk skate/party hardcore band with the same name)

Blank Stare LP


D.S.-13(Demon Sytem 13, DS-13) were a band from Umeå, Sweden. They played the fastest thrashcore ever. I didn't even know that I could find this good music in my own fucking country, but unfortunatly they broke up like 7 years ago. Influenced by early DRI, Minor Threat, Agnostic Front and Negative Approach. If you like fast and furious hardcore then this is something for you.

Last Lights

R.I.P. Dominic Mallary, 1984-2008

Last Lights was a band from Worchester, Massachussetts. They played fast and very aggressive hardcore. They were one of the most talented hardcore band to have graced this world. At the end of 2007 they released their first album, a demo, wich has been my most played record so far in my life. I was stoked out of my mind on this band and when they finally released a 7" in 2008 i kept on playing and playing, knowing that this was one of the best bands ever and they were just getting started. In December 8th, 2008, lead singer Dominic Mallary suffered from a brain aneurysm due to complications from the show the night before and tragically passed away.
I feel guilty for uploading this but someone told me that this is what Dom would've wanted. To spread the music. Please buy the discography CD including the songs from the 7" and also 3 songs off a split 7" with Bad Habit and if you buy it you get an instrumental track as well. Please buy it. All the money is going to Dominics family.

Burning Love

(Photo from

"Chris Colohan doesn't do myspace."

Burning Love is the new band of legendary Chris Colohan. He is famous for fronting bands such as Cursed, Left For Dead, Ruination and many more. This is his latest project and the name of the band has to come from the song made famous by Elvis Presley. Burning Love come from Toronto, Canada playing fast, hard and catchy, what i would call; "rock'n'roll-core". If you enjoyed Moutheater, you will not be dissappointed. This 6-song demo was released earlier this year and actually uploaded on their blog for free download. Although the files are all made into one but I've sorted that.

Citizens Arrest

"Their music was a mix of hardcore bordering on thrash complimented by gruff vocals that made them sound like they were a Japanese band"

Citizens Arrest, one of my favourite oldschool hardcore bands, came from New York, New York and existed from '88 until '90. They managed to release one EP, one LP and there are some live recordings out there too and they just released a discography LP wich you can find a link for by pressing "Buy".
