Ripcord was a band from Weston Super Mare, UK. They played fast, thrashy and aggressive hardcore and drew influences from bands such as Siege, Discharge and a lot of early UK hardcore. Existed from 1984 and ended at '88. This is most of their stuff.

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.

Impulse Manslaughter

Long before the metalcore, grindcore, and crustcore became part of the punk/hardcore scene, Impulse Manslaughter played it. They came from Chicago and existed from 1985-93.

CoD: MW2

So I just bought Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 last thursday and I've been pretty much geeking on it since then. Hence the lack of posts. I'll post stuff in a bit though.

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.
