Vancouver never seems to disappoint.  Blockhead is an ugly, distortion drenched brand of snarling hardcore punk.  They recently dropped a demo and it's an unapologetic release of dirty guitar riffs, muddled bass, caveman drum work and ferocious distorted vocals.  This stuff is mean as hell and should be heard by any fan of degenerate punk.  Snag below and dig.

Divine Right

Divine Right was a snarling, ugly and raw hardcore punk band from Chicago that left behind some awesomely fucked-up and experimental jams that I never get tired of hearing.  This material is a stomping mess of buzzing guitar chords, constant drum-work and obnoxious vocals that're spit right in your face.  Divine Right delivered some fierce and awkwardly catchy punk gems that hit hard and leave you wanting so much more.  Snag everything below and DIG!

Picture of Finisterre
Here's some crusty, driving and intense d-beat hardcore from Köln, Germany's Finisterre.  This powerhouse was a dark and heavy display of crushingly discordant riffs, thick bass structures, non-stop drum insanity and ferocious vocal howls.  These guys were mean-as-fuck and should be pretty well known by now.  Snag their discography below and DIG!!!!!!

The Flex

Picture of The Flex
UK punkers, The Flex play a stripped down version of hardcore punk. These songs are fast and pissed with the occasional hard-hitting break down that makes you want to push people around. It's a perfect listen if you want to give the day you're having the middle finger.  

For fans of:  NomosHoax & CREEM

Harrison Bergeron

Harrison Bergeron was a short-lived screamo project from Pennsylvania.  Existing from 2005-2006, these guys spit out a ripping EP consisting of manic, aggression-drenched sounds that're complex and loaded with heart-wrenching emotion.  They give me similar vibes of the early 2000's greats such as Neil Perry or Jerome's Dream.  Snag their only release below and dig.

Mercy Killings

Here's some fierce and supercharged hardcore punk from Richmond, Virginia's Mercy Killings.  Consisting of forceful vocal grunts, pummeling drums, ripping punk chords and squealing guitar leads.  These guys rip hard!  Snag their two EP's below and let's all hope for more... SOON!!!  Dig.

The Videos

This single has been banging around for years now and I've been waiting for more material but I haven't heard jack shit about these guys, so here you go. The Videos. Members of the all mighty Ceremony? Not sure because I can't find anything on them besides a vague bandcamp page. The Videos defiantly have a new wave punk vibe like Ceremony's latest LP, as well as a sex-fueled party rock thing going. I'd say be on the look out for more stuff, but this two song single dropped in 2013.   

For fans of:  CeremonyNegative Press, & Panthers

Hot Dudes

I found out about these guys like five years ago. Asshole Music For Asshole People posted them and I dug them immediately. Hot Dudes were a two-piece from RI that played indie punk with a 90's touch and a cool minimal style. I'm sure if they were still playing, everyone would be sucking their dicks in praise since this sort of style is the next best thing. Download their only EP and ask yourself why Hot Dudes never got the recognition they deserved.

Terrible Feelings

These Swedish guys and gal have been dishing out some rad dancy punk jams since 2010, but have yet to slow down or become redundant. Terrible Feelings' songs are highly inspired by 80's retro rock with poppy song structure that leans towards punk, which makes them more modern. I've seen this band posted on a lot of blogs, and I'm an idiot for not listening to them sooner. Below is their current discography. Don't be stupid like me and download this shit now. 

* The Death To Everyone CD EP is a collection of songs from their Demo, Tied Up 7", Impending Doom 7", & Blank Heads 7"

Mystic Inane

This is some weird and fucked up punk influenced noise.  Mystic Inane is not for the faint of heart, or for people who expect to be hooked after one listen.  Just download it already.
