Back Again - Street Justice (Demo)

Italy's been highly active, specially this year, and with great bands and recordings, Back Again is no exception.
"Formed in September 2011 we are an oldschool Hardcore band from Bolzano/Italy, we play the music we all liked, still like and probably will like till death: oldschool 80's hardcore with a punk attitude in the vein of the early releases of Revelation, Schism, x-Claim and Dischord Records as well as the early Agnostic Front records."
They mentioned Floorpunch in the email, so that sold me out right away.
Check it.

Barlow - Vol. 2

I totally missed Barlow's first release, but thanks to an email from Aaron, who not only sings and plays guitar, but also does the artwork for the band, i was able to redeem that.
"Barlow are a thrash/hardcore band with rock and roll styling to match. Slow and brooding, the intensity rolls out with ease as they grind your bones to bake their bread. Built on a foundation of heavy roots and unrelenting speed, songs cut through like a knife from minutes to moments, leaving you in a cold sweat wondering, 'what the hell just happened?'. The decency and well being for others are not taken into consideration once deafening drums, gritty bass and screaming guitars come together as one unit, backed up by loathsome vocals, to paint an intimidating picture. Don't blink, never miss a beat, as it may always be your last"
Don't miss out on this, and be sure to check out Vol. 1 also!

Rotten Souls - Immunity '11

"Rotten Souls is a hardcore/punk band with some dark and ominous tendencies, hailing from the lower midwest of the US. Loud, fast, and full of heart, this Mason/Dixon Hardcore band receives no greater pleasure than the joy of playing music for awesome fans, traveling to new places, and sharing the stage with fellow musicians."
