No Good Reason - Demo (2007)

"..........Hi,..We are 5 kids that grew up in a town called Almada. We started a band for fun in January 2006 and some months and shows later we recorded a demo. Then we had more shows and recorded more songs and we realized that we really have a lot of fun doing this. Then we bought some cheap flights to the UK and played some shows with our friends ALMOST HOME from Notthingham. We had a lot of fun and spent those days with amazing people we won't forget... .... Message us for CD's, tapes, shirts, shows..... ..Go Vegetarian!"

The current line up features Atlas on Vocals, Obo on bass and Pag on guitar (both formerly of Fifty On Red) with Sam joining the line-up lately and Kirky coming in on second guitar. As of July 2009 they have released a demo tape, the World Coming Down 7”/cd and the End Time Prophecies LP on Dead And Gone Records, played hundreds of shows up and down the country and also toured Europe in June 2007, july 2008 and august 2009.

They have a split 7” with Holland’s New Morality on Demons Run Amock and Flatspot. The second LP Eyjafjallajökull
was released in October 2010."

Korova - Demonstration #7089

"The new Korova demo, printed on clear cassettes and inserts on black uncoated stock paper with silver ink, limited to 100 copies. Four new songs of noise and power in the (lack of) tradition inspired by late 80s and 90s hardcore punk. The thick, raw sound is augmented by layered samples and circuit bent analog instruments, and the music was recorded on a cassette four track in the band’s warehouse practice space during times of extreme heat and intermittent rain storms. Lyrics deal with Southern Religion and underhanded "punk" business practices. The B side is ten minutes of live audio recorded at Magic City Wholesale during a show with Rational Animals and Vile Intent. Contains several old songs and an Infest cover. "

Pigeon - Demo

"These are the pigeon, these clever birds that brighten the hell of our cities of their beautiful gray dress. With this sweet name, one could almost expect a rehash of Pelican, Red Sparowes or other birds if properly installed in the field of Post-Rock.
Not at all. Pigeon is completely the opposite and instead tap into the Funeral Hardcore. Exactly, and it must be said that the term is not usurped. Holy slowness range in the standard way of Illusions Paranoid - Paranoid Delusions of Pulling Teeth, sealing oil as do the Black Sheep Wall, with a good dose of dark and violent than disown a hearing III - Architects Of Troubled Sleep Cursed ... Here is a brief overview of the influences of Rennes combo that lets loose with this demo of two songs a big task Hardcore disgusting that such a big sticky droppings on a window.
A first draft that is dripping, glaucous especially damn nasty drape a world whose slowdowns do nothing to make things more comfortable. A vice and violence that creeps slowly into us on two tracks including the first, "Birth Control Manifesto", by contrast postcore its passages and tension between the almost trippy atmospheres and melancholic arpeggios and fury in the riffs as heavy as lead. The second, "Anchorite" plunges us into the shallows dirty and unhealthy, provides numerous breaks with a chaotic end to be crushed from all sides. Anyway after listening to these two songs started, you can easily understand why they are found in Throatruiner Records label with a fine taste and a few pleasantries wedged between the s / t Neisseria and How To Hate Is Hard to Define Plebeian Grandstand.
In short, this first demo Pigeon already exhibiting a style that more strongly on hopes an upcoming extended in duration, history of taking in even more teeth."

"In March 2008, former members of M.O.B (Adam Conde/Joe Brock) and newcomer Vincent Karbowski took a shot at starting a band. After a whole year of practicing, 5 drummers and 3 guitarists later, the lineup was finally set with drummer Rex Walz (ex-Vialoux) meeting up with the band in May of 2009 and guitarist Jas Nowicki (ex-Dudleys/SATET) joining in late December 2009. Since its inception, Darker Days has slowly grown into a full time project in which all of it's members have put their heart and soul. In October of 2009, we released our first E.P. with the hope of drawing in listeners with melodic riffs, unique vocals and a uniquely driven rhythm section. For now we will continue to play shows and spread the word about our music, so stay tuned and hopefully you will either see or hear something you like."

Floorpunch - Fast Times at Jersey Shore Rehearsal Demo

"Originally formed in 1995, Floorpunch really made a splash in the hardcore scene that would continue until the end of the decade when they broke up. In 2007 they reunited and have been playing here and there since, even touring Europe recently. Whatever you might think about them, they played a major part in helping to jump start the "hardcore revival" of the mid/late nineties, and really professed a love for NYHC in a way a lot of straight edge bands of that era hadn't. Without question, they've left a big impact even on today's current hardcore scene. "
