SSS signs with Prosthetic records to release a new limited 7"

This piece of news comes to remind us that our favourite Liverpudlian thrashers are alive and still kicking -we
couldn't doubt this truth be told since they never gave out signs of slowing down.
The four-piece signs with Prosthetic records to follow-up to the release of 2011's "Problems To The Answer". Read on the official press on this signing and new limited 7" coming our way. We're just chuffed as they'd say...

Prosthetic Records is excited to announce the worldwide signing of SSS (Short Sharp Shock). Formed in Liverpool in 2005, SSS are an uncompromising crossover outfit with three albums on Earache Records already under their belts, alongside years of venomous live shows and an urgent socio-political message that is more important today than ever.
With a background deeply rooted within the UK hardcore underground, SSS truly embody the “crossover” tag, bringing together an aggressive hardcore attitude, punk/crust defiance, metal precision and grindcore’s raw intensity. The band’s gritty style draws from such heavyweights as Discharge, DRI, Napalm Death, Infest, Terrorizer and Motorhead. Nonplussed as always, the enraged lyrical content of SSS rails against a misanthropic modern age while never losing their self-effacing sarcasm that can cut the self-righteous down to size. Here is a band that asks you to finally open your eyes and look around.

THE HAVERBROOK DISASTER 2008 – 2013. This is our Goodbye!

We were working at an interview to THE HAVERBROOK DISASTER following the release of "Wheather
The World" on Let It Burn records earlier this year but at some point we've got to learn that some things weren't working inside the band anymore and today the guys officially announced their split via FB. Read on the official word from the band...

Making decisions has never been easy and this one has in one way been the hardest but also the most clear decision we've ever made as a band.

While writing songs for a possible upcoming record, we were all at one with the feeling that these tracks were not The Haverbrook Disaster songs anymore. Some serious discussions later we got to the conclusion that it's time to lay this band to rest.

"Ghost Thief" is the title of the new album from LIVING SACRIFICE

Fans can expect the powerful, thrashy sound that Living Sacrifice have made so iconic. The album serves as
a powerful reminder of why many heavy music listeners hold Living Sacrifice in such high esteem.
That's the brief (let me say perhaps a bit reductive) press about the new album LIVING SACRIFICE are releasing on Nov. 11th 2013 via Solid State records 
"Ghost Thief" is first full-length album out after the indefinite hiatus announced in 2010 following the release of "The Infinite Order" (the band had already disbanded in the early 00's) and its the eighth studio album released from 1989, the year the Christian thrash-death metal quartet formed in Little Rock Arkansas.
LS's new album will be graced by a suggestive cover artwork done by talented American graphic artist Travis Smith (

They have premiered a song titled "The Reaping" yesterday. You can listen to and watch  the lyrics clip here

LAY IT ON THE LINE "Vigilance" out 22nd Oct. 2013

LAY IT ON THE LINE is certainly one of the youngest and prolific outfits among the London hardcore
scene (the hardcore punk sons of Iron Maiden -listen to their record entitled "Crowhurst" and you'll get why).
Over a rather short 18 months span since their establishment Lay It On The Line released a demo, their debut EP "A Lesson In Personal Finance" in November 2012, the above referred mini-album  last March 2013, a split with Arizona in April and recently announced that Lockjaw records will be releasing their new 4-track EP on October 22nd 2013.
The album titled "Vigilance" is about George Hutchinson, a witness following the death of Mary Jane Kelly in Whitechapel in 1888 and was recorded by Neil Kennedy (More Than Life, Landscapes, Departures).

Stream here the third track "...And That Photo Made Me Feel Ill"

TERROR Live By The Code (CD)

by marcs77

If you were asked to name a recent times hardcore band that made it for his name to the level to proudly stand among the likes of crucial-history-relevant-well-enstablished 80's and 90's HC names for long time on, who would that be?
Well, looking back at the recent history Los Angeles' TERROR are in my view definitely one of those bands. And, like their music and what they stand for or not it's really not possible just turning your back on them without giving these Americans the credit they deserve for what they've achieved in 10 years.
“Keepers Of The Faith”, the second record out on Century Media in 2010, was a kind of mission statement of what this band is all about starting from the title and simple but effective cover black artwork with the white lettering of the title, and the follow-up “LIVE BY THE CODE”, out last April on Victory / Century Media, hits that direction possibly moving one step ahead (or perhaps one backward toward their roots...).

CHAINS to release "Trapped In Chains" on 17th October 2013

A new hardcore punk band from Italy formed thanks to some friends who all happen to be ex-current-
members of Italian hardcore punk bands and involved in the scene for many years now.
The HC oldschool project has been named CHAINS and the guys have already recorded 6 tracks which makes up the debut "Trapped In Chains".
They announce that a first press of 25 cassette tapes will be available during the release show w/ ROTTING OUT - BROKEN TEETH - SURVIVAL on October 17th at Freak Out in Bologna, Italy. But Chains also added that Open Up records will be re-printing the tape.

Nothing more to say, old people play music for young people. We play(ed) in a lot of bands like ED, Jungle Fever, Values X Intact, BANxTHIS!, Reanimaniacs, Whales Island, and more...
NOW IT'S TIME TO BREAK OUR CHAINS! --Chains about themselves
