Rash / C.H.E.W. - split 7"
"Two edgy, provocative and dynamic Chicago bands, each hammering through their songs with a single-minded intensity. C.H.E.W. submerge the occasional post-punk element into an aggressive and charging sonic fray, while RASH continue to screech and squall their way through their face-melting hardcore compositions. Both provide a loud and dark scream from the soul." -- Al Quint - Suburban Voice zine and Sonic Overload radio
C.H.E.W. / Penetrode - Strange New Universe Split CS
C.H.E.W. (formerly CHEW) and Penetrode link up and breathe life back into an endangered species: the split release. Nine songs of no holds barred, tightly wound hardcore punk. Four new tracks from each band: one of Chicago's finest and Philly's "most charismatic".
N.E.G. - II CS
A relatively new Philly band, N.E.G. began making noise mid-2016 with a demo tape out on Cruel Noise. This is their follow-up cassette, with 11.5 more minutes of raw, hardcore punk that should appeal to d-beat, punk, and crust fans alike.
NEVER-ENDING GUILT, NOTHING'S EVER GOOD
S-21 - Year Zero EP
S-21 are one of Philadelphia’s best hardcore punk outfits making music right now. With their “Year Zero” EP, they’ve drummed up four new songs that are a natural follow-up to the four tracks on their demo tape. S-21 create mid-tempo punk with pummeling riffs and powerful vocal delivery. Four cuts to stomp around to. Co-released with World Gone Mad (each label with 200 copies).
