INNOCENT – DEMO 2017

“Recorded at Side Two”, well I knew I would probably enjoy this demo. And I was right. Side Two is behind bands like Chain Rank, Green Beret or Exit Order. INNOCENT is a new band from Boston playing fast and aggressive hardcore punk, nothing more nothing less. If you are familiar with the releases of SIDE TWO Recs you know what to expect.

Mil-Spec – When The Fever Broke​.​.​.

This is not a demo but fuck it, it’s only 3 songs and on a tape so it fits here. MIL-SPEC dropped their demo last year on Moshers Delight records and are now back with 3 bangers on Advanced Perspective. Straight out of Toronto, Canada they bring some straight to the point hardcore with a Boston 2K flavor.

Diztort

DIZTORT – DEMO

Advanced Perspective is one of the label to keep an eye on these days. They are putting out great releases and this DIZTORT tape is no exception. Not sure how to label DIZTORT sound, but to me there is definitely some NYHC in this (Breakdown, Merauder) and some 90’s Cleveland influences (OLC, Integrity).

Stand-Point

STAND POINT – DEMO 2017

Same members, different sound, the New Wave Of British HardCore never stops to prove they are definitely running the European Hardcore scene. Do you like Uniform Choice? Then there’s no need to say more. These 5 songs sound like a UxC lost studio session. No fillers, all bangers.  Members Violent Reaction, Insist, Unjust, True Vision and more, you know the drill.

Force

FORCE – DEMO 2017

Not sure who’s exactly behind this new band but I’m pretty sure you can expect some belgian youth crew veterans. 7 tracks of belgian 00’s youth crew mixed with late 80’s hardcore and the Boston 2K sound. Bands like Justice, Mental, Lights Out or Jaguarz come to my mind.

ENEMIES – SUMMER PROMO 2017

If you’ve been checking this page you’ve already heard about ENEMIES from Calgary. They released a sick demo tapen in January and are already back wish 3 new tunes and the same formula : Harcore / skinhead / punk tunes for fans of 86 Mentality, Negative Approach and straight in the face punx in general.  Keep your eyes peeled, I’m sure they’ll have more to come.

Realize

REALIZE – DEMO

This is weird as fuck but somehow I like it. REALIZE is the creation of Kyle Kennedy from SEX PRISONER. 7 tracks between indus metal and heavy breakdowns. If you like the indus parts on “Rust” by Harms Way you might enjoy these tunes, besides this reference I’m too much of a noob about this style to drop any names as references. Weird, that’s the word.

Farce

FARCE – DEMO

The New Wave Of British Hardcore strikes again, and once again it’s a killer. Farce brings the Ripcord / Heresy / Doom influenced hardcore punk back on the map. 80s UKHC Punk on steroids with songs about government cuts and veganism by the folks from Arms Race, Obstruct, Shrapnel, Violent Reaction, True Vision, and Runt!

Life Of Spite

LIFE OF SPITE – DEMO 2016

One of the few POWERVIOLENCE / HEAYY HARDCORE bands to feature here. Life of Spite from Newcastle, UK have a DIY 5 track demo out (online only ?) since december 2016.  If you are into bands like Infest, ACxDC, Despise You, Crossed Out, Integrity, Hoax, Mind Eraser or Weekend Nachos you don’t wanna miss this release. I love that outro.

DRIVEN – DEMO 2017

Pretty cool 5 track demo  from JAPAN on the same label that put out BRAVE OUT 7″. Straight Edge Youth Crew the way it has to be with an early JUSTICE touch. The first riff reminds me the Elephant Skin LP. I love the dirty but powerful production that gives a very cool finish to these songs.

XREIGNX – ST

Not sure it’s a demo but let’s say it is. With a name like XREIGNX you know what to expect don’t you? Vegan Straight Edge 90’s / Edge Metal hardcore from San Diego, California. 4 tracks FFO : xRepentancex, Blistered and  90’s EDGE METAL / H8000. Sick artwork by the way!

Candy

CANDY – DEMO

CANDY just dropped a demo on Baltimore’s Flatspot records and it’s an heavy one. I’ve read these words and they are 100% accurate “The distorted vocals mixed with the crunchy sounding production hits you like a ton of bricks“. 3 tracks of hard hitting hardcore with a really powerfull production / sound. Vocals sometimes remind me Mother At Mercy.

Nekra

NEKRA – DEMO 2017

The New Wave Of British Hardcore is not dead with Violent Reaction’s break up that’s for sure. Nekra is another living proof. 5 songs of dirty hardcore punx from London, out on UK’s best current punk label : La Vida Es Un Mus.  There is definitely some BLACK FLAG and REAGAN YOUTH in these tracks.

O.N.E

O.N.E – DEMO

So many influences here: 80’s NYHC / Youth Crew / 90’s hardcore / Boston’s 80’s Hard(core) Rock and a bunch more.  The label has a weird text to describe the band on their website and O.N.E are definitely bringing their very own sound so get these tunes and form your own opinion. Weirdest demo I’ve heard in a while but I dig it.

THE-ENFORCERS

THE ENFORCERS – ST

THE ENFORCERS from Calgary, Alberta bring 4 tracks of hardcore punk highly influenced by the skinhead / oi sound and imagery. Not much more to say, these 4 songs including a The Oppressed cover are pretty cool and remind me a bit the band SLUMLORDS.

ANNÉES-ZÉRO

ANNÉES ZÉRO – AZ​.​00

ANNÉES ZÉRO is a new Belgian / French band. A bunch of guys playing skinhead-ish hardcore punk, with french lyrics. They dropped 3 songs online in May that will probably end up on a tape. If you are into THE FLEX, COUPE GORGE, 86 MENTALITY or VIOLENT REACTION get these tunes.

AMMUNATION

AMMUNATION – DEMO 2017

It’s been a while since I didn’t hear a new banger out of Boston. It seems today is the day with AMMUNATION. This 4 piece hardcore band just dropped a demo reminding me the glory days of NYHC with of course, a twist of the standard Boston Hardcore sound. 5 pretty cool tunes that will probably lead to a follow up 7″.

Diaspora

DIASPORA – DEMO 2017

New killer demo out of the mind of one guy based in Washington, D.C. Dispora brings 4 songs of hardcore punk reminding me Article Of Faith or The Offenders. They’ll play a show soon so I assume there will be a full line up and we’ll hear more about this band.

Future-Terror

FUTURE TERROR – WE’RE ALL FUCKED

Speed, noisy and raw are three words that could sum up their sound. Future Terror from Richmond, Virginia dropped this release online 10 days ago and it’s dead good. 6 songs in about 15 minutes, sounding somewhere between Motorhead-influenced crust punk and Swedish  / Japanese hardcore.
