Architects - Lost Forever // Lost Together

The good thing about Architects is that they seem to be able to keep innovating within their own sound and still make you believe that's whom they've been all along. Lost Forever // Lost Together is the best example of an evolution gone right.

Colombian Necktie - Twilight Upon Us

Bandcamp music player
Hardcore sludge? Sludgey hardcore? Sludgecore? Call it whatever you want, Colombian Necktie's Twilight Upon Us marks one of 2014's most versatile -core albums. It's thick and filthy, yet spastic and aggressive. A well-balanced diet of raw anger and melancholy ambiance.

Every Time I Die - From Parts Unknown

Prepare yourself for a violent non-stop sonic beating courtesy of Every Time I Die. It's uncompromising, unrelenting metalcore. Showcasing an endless repertoire of explosive riffs and sections, From Parts Unknown is as powerful as it is inventive to the core and at its core.

Fjørt - D'accord

Bandcamp music player
Tired of searching for music that packs emotion with a punch because you keep finding pure cheese? Well, get your ears ready for Fjørt's debut. This German post-hardcore group did not forget the aggression and rawness that is so vital for the genre. The impeccable songwriting and production makes D'accord a prime example of the genre. Varied, fresh, honest and with attitude!

Idylls - Prayer For Terrene

Are you too happy? Is your stable mental health making you too boring? Do you feel as if you'd be better at picking up chicks if you had that demented serial killer look? Prayer For Terrene is exactly what you need! With its never-heard-before mix of dissonant mathcore madness and noise, you'll get the full benefit of two years in an sensory deprivation chamber in just thirty minutes! Thank you Idylls!

Martyrdöd - Elddop

Who woulda thunk... Crust Punk can be sophisticated! Or at least that's the first impression you'll get from these Swedes. Martyrdöd continues with their branch of technical, dissonant but still direct Crust with a polished production to separate them from the lo-fi lot. But fear not, because no amount of passion nor pissed-off atittude was decreased during the making of this beast. Think of it as punch to the face, only classier and in HD.

Nesseria - Fractures

"Nesseria is more eager than ever to express its rage and disgust through creation and dedication", says the band's bio. Fractures is testament to that; this is a vitriolic portrait of our deliquescent society, drawn with furious chaotic riffing, grinding rage, and relentless hardcore vocals. Anger, hate and despair share the stage, while we'd wish to see this corrupt society crumble...

Bandcamp



Serpents - Pestilence

Three full-lengths already for Serpents, and if they hadn't cemented their name in the memory of every deathcore fan with their first two efforts, Pestilence surely will. It feels like a fragmentation missile: not only the whole album feels like a punch in the liver, but it's subtly produced, varied, and yet coherent.

Bandcamp



Trap Them - Blissfucker

Blissfucker is the band's fourth full-length release - already - and they don't seem to have weakened one bit: they still deliver with their signature mix of the most violent hardcore and grindcore. But wait, there's more! As if the weight of the years has become harder to bear, Trap Them matured, and Blissfucker even develops... atmosphere. Yes. As if their music wasn't brutal enough, now it has to be menacing and grim as well.

Yautja - Songs Of Descent

Bandcamp music player
You don't know what heavy means until you've treated your ears to the thickest, sludgiest kind of hardcore Yautja plays. And nothing says "dangerous and heavily armed" more than taking your band name from a movie with a predator species of aliens.
