Warchrist/Bastard Lovechild

I'm putting these two bands together because from what I understand it's largely the same people involved with both.

Warchrist - Demo CDR

D-Beat with members from London and Kent.

Bastard Lovechild - Birth CDR

Less D-Beat, more deliberately being offencive.  The song Pink Bike For Sale was written about Madeleine McCann, which was topical at the time.

Warchrist have recently reformed and started playing shows again.

Flowers Of Flesh And Blood - "Bitescreamslap" demo CDR

Thrashcore from London, I first became aware of them when their singer Keef used to post pictures of his Prince Albert piercing on the old Bizarre Magazine messageboard, back when it used to be a fun place and the magazine was still worth reading, so quite a few years back now.  They're still going, live appearances have become a bit sporadic but they recently released a new album.

Deal With It - My Body Is A Cage one sided 7"

You weren't at Deal With It's last show, that's a shame you probably don't have this 7" limited to 150 copies with their last song on it.  Michael has always professed his love of Type O Negative (even going so far as stealing their album title World Coming Down for DWI's first EP) which is very apparent in the synth/clean vocal intro to this song.

Sectarian Violence - s/t 7"

International Straight Edge supergroup, basically Never Again (minus Luke) with Nick from Coke Bust (Washington DC) on vocals and Stefan from Stay Hungry (Gothenburg) on bass.  Seeing as they're 3/5 UK I say that makes them fair game for this blog...fuck you, you want it or not?

The Irish Bands Post

I haven't been posting many bands from the Republic of Ireland as it's outside the UK, so here are three very different sounding bands from the city of Dublin.

Crowd Control - 7" EP

Cleveland influence Crust sadly not long for this world as all the members also play in different bands.  They did break up briefly when a member moved to Japan but reformed when he came back after the Tsunami.  This 7" features cover of Misery by Bastard and Serve And Protect by Citizens Arrest.  You can get this from Disposable Culture.

Contort - Endless Myopic Bastards tape

Japanese Noise Punk influenced Hardcore for fans of GISM and D-Clone.  Available in Ireland from Distroy Records or in the UK from Headwrecker.  You can download Contort's first demo tape from their Tumblr.

EDIT: Contort have since put up a better quality rip of this tape on their Tumblr.

Loose Nut - Nut Loose tape

Early 80's influenced Hardcore featuring members of Crowd Control.  Cheap as chips production put together for their UK tour with Crowd Control.

Leeres Hirn - Demo

Awesome Sludge from the South East, you can buy their MP3's from their bandcamp or, if you're a cheap fucker you can download it for free from Agoraphobic Nosebleed frontman Jay Randall's online label Grindcore Karaoke, and while you're there, check out xHaroldshitmanx, Ablach, AtomçkEvisoraxThe Atrocity Exhibit (both EPs they've got up) and Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair who I've put up on this blog but Jay has put a link to buy their CD which I forgot to do.

By request, early 90's Doom influenced Hardcore from Bradford, members went onto be in Iron Monkey and Voorhees, also you may know their song Skincrawl by Rot In Hell covering it.  A few years ago Aversionline tracked down their singer and got him to do a short history of the band.

"Ironside started in 1992 in Bradford with a bunch of longtime skate punks. Our first gig was with Sick of it All at the 1 in 12 Club the first time they ever came over – imagine them playing an anarcho collective. We played a lot around the UK, either with touring US hardcore bands or more importantly with new UK bands like Kito, Solace, Wartorn and Voorhees – all of whom have members still active in hardcore today. We did a couple of Breakdown- and Sheer Terror-influenced demos, then got the "holy terror" thing nailed once Integrity did "Darkness" on the "Only the Strong" 7" compilation.
We played in Belgium later in '92 and blew away all the '88 straightedge kids there, which laid the foundation for the H8000 thing. No one was doing slow, chugging metal with deep vocals and no recognizable straightedge lyrics at the time, except Ironside.
In 1993 we did the "Fragments of the Last Judgement" 7" – our four career best songs. Then a few of us started drinkin' and some original members left for various reasons. I played guitar and sang for awhile, until we got a couple of metal guys in on drums and rhythm guitar. We took the Paradise Lost/Cathedral influences a bit too far and did the "Damn Your Blooded Eyes" 7" in 1994 at Academy Studios, where a lot of the northern doom metal bands recorded back then – My Dying Bride, Anathema, etc. The back cover photo is hilarious: A collection of nightclub bouncers, circus strongmen, and vampires.
Then we went to Europe for a month with Chorus of Disapproval, also in '94, which was the biggest mismatch ever – us listening to Sabbath on the booze, and them not. Good times, but when we got back it was over. I played guitar in Voorhees afterwards, and now in The Horror. It's always cool when people bring up Ironside when I'm touring."

Where are they now (in 2008):
• Arms (singer) went on to play guitar for Voorhees and now plays guitar in The Horror.
• Nick (drums) sang for Unborn (also on Lifeforce Records), played in various Sore Throat lineups, and played in Cracked Cop Skulls (with Napalm Death and Ripcord members, I believe).
• Doug (bass) went on to form Iron Monkey, who did some records for Earache. Last time I saw him he was managing bands like Funeral for a Friend and Raging Speedhorn, or something like that.*
• Jim (guitar) went on to form Iron Monkey with Doug, as well as the amazing Hard to Swallow. He now plays in Geriatric Unit with members of Heresy.
• Tom (guitar) played for Baby Harp Seal (Fugazi/Hoover type stuff), who also recorded for Subjugation Records (Ironside's first home); relocated to Germany and played with Battle Royale (toured the US in '05); and now in plays in Cold War (Deep Six Records).
* I'm guessing that aster it emerged that that he was a registered BNP activist he stopped managing those bands.


* Damn Your Blooded Eyes 7"
* Ecstatic Ritual CD which compiles the Fragments Of The Last Judgement 7" and various comp and demo tracks.

Fuck Right Off - Discography

Thrashcore from Birmingham, the two times I've seen them they didn't have any merch for sale, thank fuckity christ for bandcamp.  This is a discography they knocked up last year for their Euro tour, now a free download.

Stuntface - Can Your Puny Body Survive? CD

Do you want to know what breaks my heart about doing this blog?  I'd love to put up more melodic stuff but most people only seem to be interested in the heavy stuff (with the amount of stuff I upload I've had to actually make a Mediafire account so I can keep track of what people are downloading).  Stuntface were a Metal influenced Pop Punk band from Wrexham in Wales, if you want a comparison they sound like Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues-era Strung Out, hi-octane Pop Punk with flashes of Metallic Melodic Hardcore.  I got this from the band in the time before Paypal when you still had to write to bands and send a cheque (or if you were feeling brave, well concealed cash).  I read a review of a demo they did after this that apparently sounded more like thrashy Earth A.D.-era Misfits.  I did pick up one other album by them which got released on a small independent label (but big enough so that they got a review in Kerrap) where they dropped the Metal influences for a more generic Blink 182 sound which kinda well, sucked.

As you can probably tell, I'm starting to run out of ideas for stuff to put up here, feel free to make requests in the comments, or if you're in a band who gives out music for free over the Internet leave your Bandcamp address in a comment (if you upload music to Mediafire or other file hosting services make sure you also leave a link to artwork), I'll listen to all submissions and put up the ones I like.

Ripped To Shreds - Demo

Mind Eraser style Powerviolence from Thanet which started around the same time as Human Junk and featuring their drummer.  This was released as a tape and a free download, the tape sold out before I could get a copy, they did plan to do a second run of them but broke up before that happened.

New Petty Bone album

A few months ago you may remember I posted Petty Bone's demo, they've recently released an album  on Damage Done Records, according to Petty Bone's Blog you can pre-order it now and it will be sent out in September but mine came soon after I ordered it.  It's really good, you should buy it, need convincing, you can listen to some tracks on their Myspace page.

Shackle Me Not/Deathskulls - "The Wake" split CD

Found this in a random distro at a show this week and thought I'd put it up here.  Shackle Me Not I guess you could call Posicore, their Myspace page says they were from London but judging from the other bands members played in I would have said Nottingham.  Deathskulls are loutish Thrashcore from Essex you know and love/hate (delete as applicable).

Kid Pang - Crimewave CD

Post-Hardcore from ex-members of the Melodic Hardcore band Winter In June and current members of the Fastcore band Man Hands.  The liner notes would like you to know that Jamie is a criminal.  Scott is a criminal.  Ross is a criminal.  Mike is a criminal.  James is not a criminal.

Freak Power one sided 12" comp

Found this in a distro at a show this weekend, couldn't find it on any other blog so I made my own rip of it.  Mostly 30 second or less new recordings by: Burmese, Apartment 213, Judas, Brain Dead, Bud Junkees, Senata Fox, Monsters Of Pot, Wadge, Sete Star Sept, Warfair?, Atentat Na Sluh, Nihilist Commando, Crime Desire, Hatred Surge, Iron Lung, Потоп, Makua Valley Blast Test and De Novissimis so not many UK bands but fuck, you want it or not?

Friday, 29 July 2011


The most popular Straight Edge band in the UK before Never Again and one of the few with a more Hardline stance. From the slums of Marghetto but often associated with the Canterbury Hardcore scene in it’s glory days of the early 00’s. The most easy thing to find is the Gehenna Made Flesh CDEP (which includes their first demo as the last two tracks).  Much harder to find are:

* Version of From Blood To Fire on the Blackfish UKHC comp
* Two tracks from the split with Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon (I would just put up the whole thing but then I’d incur the wrath of Jamie TDON)
* The last demo where they abandoned the Slayer riffs in favour of a more Madball style beatdown (the song SxFxEx Nate would re-record later during his flirting with Krishnacore in Age Of Kali)

If I've missed anything let me know and hook me up.

EDIT: I've been informed that the lyrics are actually part Portuguese and only the name is in Italian.

Seven Crowns - Sunskulls tape

Melodic Hardcore Punk affiliated with the B.O.B. scene.  Apparently there's a CD version of this but I can't find it, I got this from Pissart Records based in Malaysia, they have very reasonable postage rates.  For more Seven Crowns free downloads visit their page.

Diet Pills have a new LP out, you can download a track for free from their bandcamp, you can buy it from here.  You get a download code with it so I won't put it up, so here's an old demo they did for their winter tour with At A Crawl 'bout a year and a half ago.

The Lowest Form - Some Horrible Bug demo tape

This band is very secretive, so secretive that there's no song titles with this tape.  They've been compared to old Japanese bands like Gauze, which I can hear but to me they just sound like ripping 80's style Hardcore.  I don't know where they're from, although I'm guessing London what with the frequency they play there.  The front says nine songs, but that's a lie, there are only seven, maybe some of them are two songs together but with the absence of a lyric sheet you can't tell.

STAB - Demo tape

London based Straight Edge supergroup often compared to Ripcord.  Max from Hello Bastards on vocals, Nick from Abolition on drums and Luke from Never Again on bass.


EDIT: better rip on their bandcamp

33 - Demo CDR/CCHC Bitchfest

Hatecore from Cardiff featuring Tony from Dukes Of Nothing and members of Ironclad (probably some people from Wardogs too, the Cardiff scene has a weird incestuous thing about sharing members of each others bands).

Now before I start this I want to make it perfectly clear I’ve got nothing against Welsh people. My Mother’s family originally came from Wales and I’m very aware and proud of my Welsh heritage. I’ve got nothing but love for Welsh people, Welsh Hardcore kids I don’t like so much. The Welsh scene has been responsible for some of the worst Beatdown Hardcore in recent years and Welsh Hardcore kids at shows mosh like arseholes (have you ever seen that dude from Ark Of The Covenant? He’s always jumping up and taking big swings at head level). The first time I saw Brutality Will Prevail in Chatham they brought another Welsh band called The Joyride Manoeuvre with them, while they played BWP’s drummer and merch girl started dancing in a manner so violent it shocked the local kids who were used to just two stepping at the time, since then Wales and Kent has had a weird kinship, whenever there is a big show here there’s usually two, three, fuck me, sometimes as many as four Welsh bands on the bill. It isn’t all shitty Beatdown in Wales, there has been a few good bands like Freeze Up (R.I.P.), Ironclad (as thug like as they come off they are actually a decent band), 33 and Smiler (who I don’t really associate with the CCHC scene as they’re all old boys who look like they were around for Hardcore in the 80’s).
