IN CONTROL - Another Year

Location: Oxnard, California
Release: Indecision Records, 2001

The first LP from one of my all time favourite IN CONTROL, the ones responsible for the Nardcore revival in the 2000's.

They played with infectious energy and aggressiveness yet with the awareness and consciousness that hardcore punk is established upon. Another Year is a 15 tracks album that ranges from melodic to full-on NYHC style breakdowns and mosh anthems that will leave you asking for more!

They disbanded in 2004 and members went to form Annihilation Time and RETALIATE.

UPPERCUT - Tables Turned

Location: Nederland
Release: I Scream Records, 2006 (out of print)

Last album by the dutch Uppercut, 13 tracks of angry old school hardcore packed with breakdowns. All the energy from their previous album "A Luta Continua" plus a better production can be heard on this record.

They were making a similar sound to what other european old school bands were doing at that time, bands like No Turning Back, Nothing Done, Death or Glory and Abusive Action. No further info can be found about them, even their I Scream page has jack squat.
