Malcontent is a solo project constructed by Kevin Annand (Chain Rank & Preskool Dropouts) that oozes with meaty, distorted, mid-80's hardcore inspiration.  Massive riffs, squealing leads, thunderous drums and guttural grunts make this demo an instant stand-out so far this year.  Snag this beast below and dig!

Death Side

Death Side is a classic Japanese hardcore powerhouse that existed from 1987 to 1994.  The band reformed in 2015 and played their first US gigs ever to my understanding.  These guys have crafted absolutely ripping hardcore punk that will continue to hold up strong after the passing years.  This blazing material is timeless so snag below and dig.

Cave State

California's Cave State is a ripping and destructive powerviolence outfit that absolutely slays.  Their demo and debut 7" were crushing displays of maniacally energized fastcore and the band's most recent 7" shows that these dudes really mean fucking business.  This stuff is intense, hard-hitting and frantically delivered.  Snag everything below and dig.

Paranoid delivers some raw d-beat punk from Frösön/Östersund, Sweden.  These noise-drenched tunes are primitive and ferocious with buzzsaw riffs, blown-out bass, pummeling drums and vicious vocal howls.  These dudes have been shredding since 2012 and keep spitting out solidly intense hardcore that'll surely fuck with your senses.  Snag everything I could find below and dig.
