Yo ! Plenty of new records and reading material this week including the new HIGHER POWER 12″, LIFE’S BLOOD repress on 12″/Tape, the awesome DVD THE NYHC CHRONICLES, the three TRIPLE B’s latest releases, UK’s new straight edge band FIRM LAW STANDING and a lot more.

 

NEW RECORDS

Higher Power – Soul Structure [LP]

Higher Power - Soul Structure

 

HIGHER POWER shound’t need an introduction anymore. Hailling from UK, they’ve been growing and growing to become one of the most appreciated European bands with their very particular blend of NYHC, 90 metal and grunge.

This is the new release everyone is talking about.

Life’s Blood – Hardcore A.D. 1988 [LP/Tape]

Life's Blood - Hardcore A.D. 1988

 

Life’s Blood was a legendary, short-lived band from New York City. Formed in 1987, Life’s Blood played 20 shows and recorded two radio shows, a demo at Don Fury and one 7″, “Defiance,” released on Combined Effort Records, and appeared on the seminal “New Breed” tape comp in 1988. Prank records had the awesome idea to put these recordings on a 12″ / Tape / Cd and put it out again.

The New York Hardcore Chronicles Film [DVD]

The New York Hardcore Chronicles Film [DVD]

 

Director’s DREW STONE (Antidote, xxx All Age xxx director ) did another great piece of work with that DVD documenting one of the most important music scenes in the world : 80’s NYHC.

“My intention is not to make a film documenting the history of New York hardcore, but to tell the story in an episodic format with the thread of New York hardcore running through it.”

Abuse Of Power – When Then Becomes Now [7″]

Abuse Of Power - When Then Becomes Now

Protester – Hide From Reality [LP]

Protester - Hide From Reality

 

That’s one of the records I was waiting for the most this year. It took forever to arrive at S&AHQ but I finally have it. Connor and his team are back after a KILLER debut 7″ and a second one I enjoyed a bit less. This “Hide From Reality” bring my faith in the band back.  10 tracks of Boston influenced hardcore. For fans of NO TOLERANCE, FREEDOM, PROTESTER, CONFRONT.

Violence to Fade – Unstoppable Force [LP]

Violence to Fade - Unstoppable Force

 

UNSTOPPABLE FORCE is the first full length record from New England Straight Edge powerhouse VIOLENCE TO FADE. Taking pointers from the reverb drenched sound of the late 80’s NYHC scene, VIOLENCE TO FADE bring to mind the classic styles of KILLING TIME, REST IN PIECES, and SICK OF IT ALL while still maintaining their own modern presentation. You can’t go wrong with TRIPLE B records.

Civic Duty – Burden of Hate [7″]

Civic Duty - Burden of Hate

 

Civic Duty features members of Fury, Protester, Pure Disgust, Red Death, Clear and more. This 7″ is bad fuckin ass and features 9 killer tracks! I love that kind of vocals. For fans of FREEDOM and moshing punk hardcore. TRIPLE B records again.

 

Get it here


Firm Standing Law – Unashamed [7″]

Firm Standing Law - Unashamed

 

Debut 7″ from the UK’s FIRM STANDING LAW. 4 tracks of no frills Straight Edge hardcore in the vein of xChorusx, Judge, Undertow, Strife. Featuring members of Payday, XrepentanceX, Sectarian Violence. I dare you to listen to the first bass line and tell me it doesn’t sound like JUDGE.

Warzone – The Victory Years [LP]

Warzone - The Victory Years

 

Another sick repress. Warzone’s “The Victory Years” is a tribute to the years that the veteran New York City hardcore punk act spent with Victory Records.

 

Get it here
Stand Off – Behind The Wire [7″]

Stand Off - Behind The Wire

 

Stand Off returns with this, their final recording. Six tracks of hardcore from the nation’s capital brought to you by members of Red Death, Pure Disgust, Line Of Sight and too many more bands to mention. For fans of 80’s / 90’s youth crew like Chain Of Strength, Outspoken, Hard Stance, Turning Point and so on.

Jesus Piece / Malice At The Palace – Split [7″]

Jesus Piece / Malice At The Palace - Split

 

Jesus Piece and Malice At The Palace are teaming up with Bridge Nine to release a new split EP. Jesus Piece kicks the split off with two brutally heavy and discordant, metallic hardcore anthems. Malice At The Palace, fresh off an LP released by Six Feet Under, is back with two new songs continuing to perfect the ’90s hardcore sound they’re known for.
