Palermo WHALES' ISLAND is back with a new EP

Starting last spring something was in the air, "rumors", at WHALES' ISLAND camp and it seems like, as history sometimes repeats, that one thing lead to another and to another again up to the point where the guys offially rebanded (I missed on the news dated May the 8th) to play a few show this summer, including the appearance at seventh edition of The Island's Revenge Fest in their home turf Palermo.
But the five-some didn't just get back together for the sake of playing some reunion shows and it's really fresh news they have recorded a couple of new songs at Palermo's The Basement for the new digital EP "Whales'Island MMXVII" that saw the light of the day on December 28th.

They shot a diy clip for the song "Don't Worry About It!". Watch it here

Athens, Greece RUINED FAMILIES releases new LP

RUINED FAMILIES,  hardcore screamo band based in Athens,Greece, recently released a new full-length wax titled "Education" on Adagio830.
Formed in 2010, the band's new work follows-up two acclaimed LPs and one 7" and features 10 songs spanning just over 17 minutes.
Drawing elements from their previous record, "Education" touches on 90s screamo, fast hardcore and post-punk. Unavoidably marked by the lasting turbulence of the Greek condition, Ruined Families attempt to make the most out of a precarious present by putting frustration into words that speak the mind of contemporary youth.

Listen to and watch the video for the song "Imagine Of An Imagine" included in the LP

Germany's hardcore MIOZAN are back with a new record "Surrender Denied"

Heavy hitting old school hardcore from Germany barking loud and proud...

Shortly after forming in 1991, MIOZÄN started making waves in the Germany hardcore scene with
the release of their legendary "Offer Resistance" demo. That tape remained in the top ten reader charts of the underground magazine Zap, which at the time was the definitive voice of the scene. MIOZÄN quickly established themselves as a band that did not shy away from making political statements and taking a strong antifascist stance.
Over the years the band played countless shows, tours and festivals right across Europe together with a "who's who" of the hardcore scene - bands like SICK OF IT ALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, IGNITE or MADBALL. As well as the positive reviews that their releases garnered, MIOZÄN earned themselves a reputation for being a live powerhouse - as German magazine Plastic Bomb put it - "If they were from New York, they'd be immortal!".
