Natural Order - S/T 7"

So Deal With It broke up, Mike moved to Wales, started this new band, also joined another established UKHC band who I won't mention because I think they've outstayed their welcome.  Mike would always say at DWI shows that he basically got into Hardcore via Nu-Metal as a teenager so it makes sense that he'd start a new band paying tribute to the bands around in the 90's who fell into the grey area between Nu-Metal and Hardcore.  Buy it.

Endless Grinning Skulls - Fear, Ignorance, Control 7"

Raging Hardcore from Nottingham like Poison Idea run into G.I.S.M. featuring members of Heresy, Army Of Flying Robots and Geriatric Unit.  Available from Viral Age Records.
I have a massive amount of respect for the guys who played in Heresy and Ripcord in the 80's and rather than follow the current trend of grabbing hold of a couple of random session musicians and doing half arsed reunion tours asking for far too much money, they've actually started new bands like EGS, Geriatric Unit & Violent Arrest and put in the effort to make them sound actually good.

Castrato Attack Group/Etai Keshiki - split tape

Two Noise Rock bands from Leeds, was available on Norman Records but after checking before posting this I just found out it's sold out, maybe they'll repress it, maybe they won't.
Also I'd like to apologise to Daria from Etai Keshiki for thinking you were a very Metrosexual looking man.

My, this blog has taken a turn for the Stoner recently hasn't it?  Don 't worry, we'll get back to Hardcore soon enough.  This is a limited LP to 1500 being sold on their current tour, maybe they'll be some left over to be sold from the Southern Lord webstore at the end, maybe not.

Boris - Call Me 04234 63376 12"

If you've been living under a rock for the last fifteen years, Boris are a Stoner Rock/Drone/occasionally Hardcore band from Tokyo who looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the Melvins.  This EP was done sometime in the mid nineties when apparently they used to be a four piece, Atsuo, their drummer was originally the singer before Takeshi came in and took over on bass/lead vocals.  This record is a massive nod towards Melvins' Eggnog EP.

The Assassinators - I Disse Mørke Tider 7"

OK, from now on the main focus of this blog will still be UK bands but occasionally I'll put up bands from other countries if I can't find rips of them anywhere else.  The Assassinators are a female fronted melodic Anarcho Punk band from Denmark, who sing only in Danish.  I can't understand what they're saying, as far as I'm concerned the lady is just making pretty sounds.
