HITTIN' RANDOM - Where's Your Rage?

Location: Venezia, Italia
Release: DIY, 2015

I've been missing out on the italian scene newest outputs but recently came across HITTIN' RANDOM, an awesome surprise! Their sound fuses 00's Boston with 80's NYHC, think early Agnostic Front meets an even earlier Biohazard resembling Rampage in some parts, a monstrous formula: fast beats and angry riffs.

Where's Your Rage? is their first and self-released EP in tape format, limited to 25 copies. I believe Assurd Records has the last few units.

The same dudes in Hittin' Random has another thing going named KNIGHTZZ: more raw, more medieval!!

FLOWERMOUTH - Urethane

Location: Perth, AUS
Release: Shaman Records, 2015

PLANET PERTH! At this point when you read/listen the words Perth + new band in the same phrase you don't hesitate, you go after, google it, hit the play button or somethin', the chances you will be banging your head are sky high! Strangely, everytime I met a person from there they always state it's a boring city. I doubt it, the beach is never dull, especially a punk one! 

FLOWERMOUTH came around 2013 and just dropped their 2nd EP last month. My buddy Bruno Pinga point it out to me and, as a trusted source he is plus that perth effect, I didn't waste time to check'em. Grunge has definitely infiltrated in todays hardcore punk world, sometimes disguised as 90's emo, sometimes shoegaze. The thing is, these dudes really do justice to this whole revival phenomenon as Urethane 7" is an instant classic! Felling ill? Grab your board and bomb the hills with Flowermouth.

DISPUTE - It's Fucking Prime Time

Location: Bay Area, California
Release: Rumble Records, 2005 (out-of-print)
Artwork: Karlo Valentincic (BCHC)

Rumble Records first release, DISPUTE 7". Members played at some point on several cali bands, such as: Carry On , Breaker Breaker, Duckhunt, For The Crown... and they kept a similar spirit on this project!

This debut EP consists of 5 youth crew tunes with some melodic hints. They released new material after this EP but they disbanded not much after in 2007, besides, these new tracks has even stronger melodic influences and stray away from the original concept so I put them aside and just uploaded the Prime Time EP, which rocks big time!

*update - original post from october 2010*

The original link was put down by someone many years ago and I never uploaded it again. But recently I found this link from B9's forum with their discography CD entitled "Everyone, Everything" out by Vexed Records. The tracks from It's Fucking Prime Time are obviously in it and shouldn't be lost in time that easy, so here's another shot!

BONELESS - Unstoppable

Location: Sydney, AUS
Release: Rest Assured, 2013
Artwork: Dave (Vigilante)

NYHC with that australian flow, in BONELESS' debut EP they weren't trying to reinvent the wheel but will most certainly please those into traditional hardcore with attitude, such as Sick Of It All, Dead Stop and Last Nerve. The band has no newbies in it, comprised of former members from Bad Blood, Strength Within, Perish The Thought and Easy Company, the first one being a classic of the Sydney scene for me!

Their new record "Gratitude" released a few months ago has more appeal to it, with improved music writing and recording. Totally worth checking!

SNAKE EYES - S/T 7" + Demo

Location: Los Angeles
Release: 1917 Records, 2005-2007 (out of print)

Some already know that 1917 Records rose from the dead with a new co-release in hand: Guns Up! discography 2xLP.

The label put a few old stuff for sale as well uploaded part of their catalogue on bandcamp in high quality, lots of rad bands from the mid 00's, one of them is SNAKE EYES, a short-lived project done by riff maniacs Todd Jones and Corey Willians. The other dudes in it would be Bo Thompson (ex-Donnybrook) handling the mic, Nick Trujillo (Absolute Madness) on bass and a few dudes takin' over the drums, for instance, Bill Lanz (Internal Affairs).

Snake Eyes were all about hard-hitting well produced hardcore as you would expect from the kind of bands they were playing at the time. They did 2 albums: the 2005's Demo released on CD and the 2007's Self Titled 7", both on 1917 recs.
