New releases and re-press: Unhaim, Spitting Nails, Ashkara, Ravage Fix
we’ve been busy again and released new records by Spitting Nails, Ravage Fix and Unhaim. Besides we also re-pressed the LP of Ashkara as the band started to play live again after quite a break. Some of our older releases are also still available, get in touch for buying (also wholesale) or trades. And remember: PunkPost still exists.
Thanks! And have a nice day!
Spitting Nails s/t LP
Debut LP from this young band that just recently crawled out of their vaults (located in Bremen and Hamburg / Germany) to enchant the world with their very innovative and diverse brand of modern crusty-hardcore punk with elements of stoner-rock riffs and excursions into the black metal fields. If you like driving bulldozers, are making your own moonshine down in your basement or cheer up when there’s a blizzard announced then this is a record for you.
Ravage Fix s/t EP
“Fuuuuck, these cats are pissed. Four tracks of raw, feral hardcore delivered at varying tempos ranging from thrash to slow, caustic burn. The song structures are simple, but man, do they pack a punch”, said Razorcake to their first EP. I bet they write the same again. Five songs in five minutes and still it’s value for money as you get a maximum dose of pissed-off, fast, noisy and rowdy hardcorepunk just in the way it has to be. .
Unhaim s’bränt EP
Ah yes, Unhaim, the kings of “How can we make producing a record as laborious as possible” – here’s the “avoid computers”-record. Recorded live on two inch-tape, mixing and mastering was also done analog, then cut directly from the tape. The artwork for the labels was done by hand and the covers were all silkscreened. Don’t they have anything better to do?, you might ask… I asked this too… but the result was well worth the work! Again a bit less crustcore and a bit more punkrock but still a hefty pack of noise. Four songs, punky crustcore or crusty hardcorepunk, whatever you might call it, sung in Swiss German.
Ashkara …in absence LP
Re-pressed. The break is finally over and the band started to play live again, so the nice people we are we re-pressed their LP (the charming old blokes at Rinderherz will even include the poster and the booklet again). Eight songs, all of them a bit longer than the ones of Ravage Fix. Downtuned, “modern” crustcore with some slower moments, too, and a violin here and there.
Sin Logica “Fuel of Death” LP
We say hello to RIND023! “Fuel of Death” is the second LP by Sin Logica from Lucerne / Switzerland. The band has been around since ages and has released two singles and one LP so far. Now, “Fuel of Death” - you can tap your foot to the beat while listening to it but you can also run around in your flat, scream along and play air guitar to it. And drink beer. 12 songs, stompin’ hardcore/punk that never goes full speed ahead. The dirty rocking stuff has definitively influenced these people and the Motörhead shirt on the backcover makes a lot of sense (and I bet if the shirt’s in the laundry there’s a Driller Killer one).
Midnight Crisis s/t EP
Oh yes! The demo was cool, and this is great! The first vinyl output by Midnight Crisis from Leipzig / Germany, rowdy hardcore-punk with a huge 80s Finland-hardcore influence, always between midtempo and full speed ahead. Comes with a beautiful cover drawn by the Silver Mullet of Death (which fits perfect, I’d say).
Ravage Fix s/t EP
We continue the tradition of our label & put out another record by friends of us who play good music. Four songs of super cool hardcorepunk, influenced by the good old days of “back then”, and Japan. Imagine a bunch of folks of which the singer likes Japanese hardcore, the bass player likes to wear a Skitkids-shirt, the guitar player thinks the best band he ever saw was Poison Idea and the drummer says “alcohol is a cool thing”. That’s Ravage Fix, they are cool, so is their music and the record, of course, too. Whoo-hoo!
Unhaim s/t LP
It finally happened after having been in the works for ages! After four songs on a seven inch some time ago Unhaim have only one guitar player left but also a new singer, and here we go for the first album of the band. Crustpunk as it has to be: Slightly (only slightly!) metallic, not too polished and a healthy dose of punkrock! No neo-crust here, but also not monotonic ENT-like noise. Lyrics are mostly in Swiss German, and there’s a sample here and there as well…the music’s on three sides of this records, go figure! And you even have the songtitles on the vinyl…
