Cult Ritual - 2nd EP

Cult Ritual is one of the best hardcore bands around right now. See for yourself. The dudes in this seem to have posted everything they've done and then some on their own blog which is here. All of their records sell really quick, or I'd tell you to go buy them.

1. Haunted Grounds
2. Hunger Pains
3. Civilized
4. Leather


Mind Eraser - Glacial Reign

Haven't posted in the past week due to health problems, but that's not the point. Here we have a super sludgy powerviolence band for your listening pleasure. Not much to say: the low ends are fucking low, and it's just as angry. It's fast, but when it slows down, you're gonna get into it. Get mad.

1. Abuse Excuse
2. Manhood
3. Coping Methods
4. Equation
5. Full Spectral Dominance
6. Schizophrenic
7. Yesman
8. Wrote Off
9. Shutting Down
10. Deviant Sadistic
11. Time Served (And What You Leave Behind)
12. Juggling Anxieties

Pissed Jeans - Shallow

Coming from my county of residence, Pissed Jeans is the best example of an active noise punk band I can think of. The riffs are sludgy and fuzzy and grab your nuts and twist them, and there's enough weirdo lyrical content to keep it fun. It's not as bizarre as their follow-up album Hope For Men (which I'll probably end up posting soon) on Sub Pop, but you could argue this one is louder. Compulsory downloading.

1. I'm Sick
2. Boring Girls
3. Ugly Twin (I've Got)
4. Ashamed Of My Cum
5. Closet Marine
6. I Broke My Own Heart
7. Little Sorrel
8. Wachovia

Andrew Jackson Jihad - Candy Cigarettes and Cap Guns

I'm posting this not only because it's an amazing album, but because most people forget to include this in their AJJ collections. Their debut non-demo full-length is full of their normal paranoid folk insights, which include feeling like you're a cigarette or getting beat by your parents. Fuck white people.

1. Cigarettes
2. Be Afraid Of Jesus
3. I Love You
4. Scenesters
5. Daddy Didn't Love Me
6. Fuck White People
7. God Made
8. Lady Killer
9. Fly My Ass
10. Most Aborted Father
11. You Don't Want To Fuck With Me


Altars - Ewig Verloren

Just got into this band. Really sick melding of black metal, harsh noise and hardcore punk. This particular one-sided 7" features only one track, but it's really good. Go buy it, or check out How Much Art Can You Take? and look at the tasteful site, or order their split with Issei Sagawa.
