AMPERE/SINALOA - Split LP $8.00
Ampere continues their emo-violent attack with 7 new tracks bursting with rage and harsh beauty. Sinaloa' 5 tracks are more traditional emotive hardcore without the rage and violence.

Ampere features ex-members of Orchid, Bucket Full Of Teeth, Laceration, Stop The Clock, Wolves, and The Last Forty Seconds while Sinaloa features ex-members of Ettile Vyre and Ache.
BETRAYED - Substance LP $10.00 CD $10.00
If there's any band that can incite a circle pit or inspire the kids to raise their fists and mosh till they can mosh no more, it's certainly Betrayed. If there's any band that plays hardcore from the heart, it's definitely Betrayed, who are newly signed to Equal Vision and are armed with a brand new album, the fittingly titled "Substance". There's nothing processed, homogenized, over thought, or stale about "Substance". It's got a pulse, a vibe, and a heart. It favors fiery passion over flash, and substance over style. If there's one thing the current hardcore scene is lacking in 2006, it's a throbbing, beating heart that ignores image and encourages emotion. Thankfully, Betrayed are here to inject the scene and the youth of today with a much-needed shot of loud, fast hardcore.
BLANK STARE - White Hell 7” $4.00
Fresh off the release of their self-titled debut 7", Boston's Blank Stare get right back into the fast hardcore they became known for off of the first record. This release is only three songs but it delivers the goods with plenty of angst and fury.

CEREMONY - Violence Violence LP $8.00 CD $10.00
After a well received demo (1000 printed) and a debut 7" that sold 2,000 copies in less than a year, Ceremony gives us "Violence Violence," their 15 song debut full length. If "Ruined" was their declaration, "Violence Violence" is their first wave assault, a soundtrack to wage war. A war against everything that hardcore has stood against, but now has been co-opted into its ranks. There's no TRL song on here, there's nothing that'll be heard at a school dance. Hardcore for the hardcore. CD includes the out-of-print "Ruined" 7" as bonus tracks, and the LP is limited gatefold.
CROW - Bloody Tear LP $9.00
Bombastic crust-metal from Tokyo, an ultra brutal lightning attack of searing riffs, wild solos, screaming vocals and crushing rhythm section. Bleak intent and searing metallic mayhem, Crow have dotted the landscape of Japanese hardcore punk since it's inception and just seem to get more devastating with age! This is their first full length/second LP since the 1980's with 9 tracks. Some of the songs are intense re-recorded versions of some of their classic tracks (including their signature track "Give Up All Hope" that has been covered by numerous bands including the UK's legendary Doom) as well as new recordings of songs from their recent ultra-limited Japanese releases. This is the official vinyl release of this new LP, which was released as a CD-Only on the Mangrove label in Japan. The LP sequence has slight variations in both track listing and mixes. Crow have toured the West Coast twice, releasing the well received 7" "Neurotic Organization" and split EP with Artimus Pyle previously on Prank.
THE DAGDA - Gatefold LP $10.00
A coop between Ruin Nation, Unsociable, Destructure and Rinderherz Records. A new 7 song farewell LP from this outstanding band from Ireland that represents their most intense and diverse release ever! Too sad to say, but it´s their last one to date as the band defunct last summer. - a heavy, mystique´n´tribalist dark hardcore punk and a blast of a powerfull production. Lyrically highly spiritual influenced as the artwork has a strong paganistic feel as well! Comes in a heavy gatefold sleeve.
DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS - Undercurrents CD $8.00
Formed from the ashes of Livewire Records' own Damage Control, Norway's Death Is Not Glamorous move away from the more youth crew sound and more towards the melodic hardcore side of things.

THE ERGS - Coke Is The New Jazz 7” $5.00
The Ergs! from New Jersey play intensely with the melodies of The Replacements and The Descendants, and with the energy of old Husker Du. This record is limited to 250 copies!
THE ERGS - Jersey’s Best Prancers CD $7.00
On this, the CD version of the out of print and highly sought after 12" EP, the Ergs sound less influenced by early hardcore and more inspired by their well-worn copies of Flip Your Wig and Allroy For Prez. The production (again courtesy of Chris Pierce) and playing are out of this world.
FULL BLOWN CHAOS - Within The Grasp Of The Titans CD $10.00
Since the release of 2004's "Wake the Demons", Full Blown Chaos has been furiously criss-crossing the country touring in support of that record, only pausing briefly to record "Within The Grasp Of Titans" at Trax East in February of 2006. What the band produced is another testament to their ability to play some of the most destructive metallic hardcore this side of Hatebreed, Sworn Enemy and 100 Demons.
GUNS UP - Outlive LP $9.00
The follow up to the powerful EP "All This Is", "Outlive" is the first full length from MA's Guns Up! and their second release on 1917 Records. This picks up right where they left off, with eleven tracks of New York style, groove-oriented hardcore that pays tribute to bands like Leeway and Cro-Mags.
IGNITE - Through Our Darkest Days LP $8.00

INMATES - Asshole Unanimous LP $8.00

Pure hateful Cleveland thrash.
INSECT WARFARE - Endless Execution 7” $4.00 CD $7.50

KITE FLYING SOCIETY - A Discography CD $9.00
Finally, the discography from Florida's Kite Flying Society sees the light of day. This band has a cult following and their releases never had proper distribution, and often sell for stupid prices on the internet. This CD collects the self-released 7", the self-titled (a.k.a. "Pink") CD, and the "Jochem" CD, along with 7 unreleased songs, 4 live songs, and the original 2-song demo tape. One-time pressing of 1000 copies.
LOOK BACK AND LAUGH - Street Terrorism 7” $4.50
Oakland's Look Back And Laugh once again destroy the competition with five unreleased songs that are as fast and angry as anything they have ever put out. With female vocals and songwritings and stylings comparable to that of members' previous bands Talk Is Poison, this 7" is filled with pounding bass, the best drums this side of Dave Witte and thought-provoking lyrics.
OUTBREAK - Failure LP $8.00
Sixteen brand new songs make up the bands debut full-length and in true punk fashion the record clocks in a hair over 20 minutes. Though this is Outbreak's first full-length, in their five year existence they've managed to release two EP's and become true road warriors, playing hundreds of shows in thirteen countries, including tours with every one from Agnostic Front to Bane.
PELIGRO SOCIAL - No Religion LP $9.00
Peligro Social from San Francisco with their debut LP charge forth with a perfect blend of punk rock guitar riffs and raw melody at a skill level to rival classics from 80's UK and Spanish legends such as The Insane, The Partisans, Escorbuto, or La Uvi. Easily accessable to people with different musical tastes with elements of rockin'roll, punk, and current sub-genres, but still very comfortably fitting into the punk label with snotty Spanish vocals and scathing backup choruses. It's been a long time since I have heard anything this original and pure sounding, this album in any right is destined to be a classic. Check out mp3's at www.karaterex.com/tankcrimes/.
PISSED JEANS - Shallow LP $10.50

SICK OF IT ALL - Death To Tyrants LP $8.50
As one of the longest standing bands still proudly waving the flag of New York Hardcore, Sick Of It All have made their mark as one of the cornerstones of NYHC, proving that heart, hard work, and dedication to hardcore is about more than just the music and an image, it's a way of life. The four-piece celebrates their 20th anniversary in 2006 coinciding with the release of the band's 9th full-length record (not including several EPs, singles, and live recordings). Under exclusive license from Abacus Recordings, Think Fast! Records is honored to bring you the LP vinyl version of "Death To Tyrants".
SINKING SHIPS - Disconnect LP $8.00
Seattle's Sinking Ships full-length Revelation debut, "Disconnecting," is a look at the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Weaving elements of melody and hard edge riffs, Sinking Ships are creating a sound all their own, somewhere between the familiar echoes of hardcore bands like Bane and In My Eyes, but with their own distinct morose overtones.
SMALLTOWN - The Music CD $10.00
Great melodic mod influenced punk - ultra catchy, anthemic songs with raw tuneful vocals, and teeth clenching riffs. Think the Strike and Stiff Little Fingers.
TRAGEDY - Nerve Damage LP $10.00
These sold out in just a few hours. I will order more ASAP.
THE VICIOUS - Obsessive 7” $4.50
Sweden's The Vicious are another retro outfit that sounds fresh in the modern day soundscape. This is late-'70s Los Angeles sounding punk rock akin to Avengers, The Bags, or say 45 Grave but with male vocals.
