Receive the Void EP

Vision of Insane Hope

After the demise of the great Damad, two bands emerged from the ashes: Karst, and some band you have probably never heard of, Kylesa. Which one is better? I'll let you decide. As far as I can tell, these are the only two albums they released. They give off a real 90's hardcore vibe, like if Dystopia was really into Unbroken. I have been listening to this band on a daily basis since for about the past week, so intense, so angry. Enjoy.

Damad - Rise and Fall


This is the band's first full length released in '97. You can get more from this band here.

Eternal Frost EP

Into Darkness

Winter is one of the pioneering bands of the death/doom genre. What is death/doom...what the fuck does it sound like. They only put out two records; the first being their full length Into Darkness in '90, and the Eternal Frost EP in '94. Both were later re-issued by Nuclear Blast as one record. If you enjoy this then I recommend you check out a similar band, Mystic Charm(don't be fooled by the name).

I am trying to upload the full length, but it keeps saying the upload failed. If I can't get it to upload I'll steal someone's link. Thx - Management

Rewind EP

Centric EP

Damad is a crust/metal group that hailed from Savannah, GA and were active for a better part of the '90s, early '00s. Members went on to form Kylesa and Karst(not the shitty techo group). The band put out two full lengths, you can find the newer one here, as well as a myriad of EP's and splits. The Rewind EP was put out in '97, with the Centric EP following shortly after in '99. Think Kylesa if they had more of a punk vibe to them.

Death - Human



Cro-Mags - Age of Quarrel


Essential Listening. You probably have this, if know what to do.

This weird little creation is a split between the bands Godflesh and Loop. The catch? They each cover each the other band's song, hence the weird name.

Botch - An Anthology of Dead Ends


The late great Botch; mathcore, hardcore, metal, whatever you wanna call them this band was simply incredible. This EP, the last thing the band ever recorded, was released posthumously by Hydra Head in 2002.

Teenage Cool Kids - Tape Demo


Teenage Cool Kids are one of my "guilty pleasure" bands. Like Jawbreaker and Husker Du, this is one of those bands I put on when I don't feel like having my ear drums pummeled with overly aggressive noise. I would describe them as a lo-fi, pop-punkish type of band, drawing influences from the aforementioned groups. This is their tape demo they put out several years ago(2007 I think?), one of the dudes sent this to me a while back. Definitely worth a listen.

Martyrdod/Sunday Morning Einsteins - We Walk the Line Split


When someone uses the word raging to describe music, my mind instantly goes to one of my favorite current bands, Martyrdod. This split came out in 2004 right before they released their second full length, In Extremis. It is exactly what you would expect from the Swedes, two tracks of pure raging, blackened crust. The other band Sunday Morning Einsteins is alright. I'm not really familiar with them, but they came off as generic d-beat/crust, and the vocals irritated me for some reason, maybe I'm just failing to realize their greatness and am in need of some self righteous music snob to point it out via the internet. Whatevs.

Born Dead Icons - Work


Born Dead Icons, hailing form Quebec, play dark/melodic d-beat in the vein of From Ashes Rise/Tragedy; throw in some crusty sprinkles on top and I'm sold. It's nothing to original but definitely worth checking if you are a fan of the genre, and you like hearing your d-beat on the slower side of things. The band broke up in '07, releasing this record, their first lp, in 2000.
