Drip-Fed - Under The Wave Blanket

I've slacked with posting lately due to work and playing in bands and as a result I've missed out on some really cool music coming out. This right here is one of the releases I've missed. Drip-Fed are a 4 piece hardcore band from Austin, Texas who play a brand of hardcore comparable to Fucked Up, Drug Church or My War era Black Flag. This is their newest 7" Under The Wave Blanket which came out March 3rd. Clocking in at just under 9 minutes, UTWB serves up 3 tracks of pure punk fury that shouldn't be missed. Plus its under 10 minutes, don't tell me you can't take 10 minutes out of your day to listen to something thats not Metallica or whatever the fucking radio plays, Don't miss out on this record like I did, take notice.

Snag - ST

Holy fuck am I ever stoked on this band. Hailing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin Snag play a brand up slightly unhinged punk that reminded me of bands like Loma Prieta or even Rorshach for those of you who remember those guys. Snag is their self titled debut EP which came out May 2nd and should not be missed, 6 songs jam packed with riffs and lyrics that actually convey a message unlike so many of today's metal and hardcore bands who sing about trivial things or fantasy. I haven't known about these guys for very long but I can say without a doubt that I'll be jamming the hell out of this EP for a long time. Dont sleep on this.

Sand Coffin - Shinobi-violence

Powerviolence/grind from Bakersfield, California. I can't find any information on this band (but maybe I'm not looking hard enough) but holy hell is this one a ripper. 5 songs in under 5 minutes, the way I like my powerviolence. It's also a more lo-fi recording which I enjoy, no smoke and mirrors bullshit like alot of modern grind/powerviolence bands do. Check it.

Fluoride - Fluoride

New Jersey grindcore, not much needs to be said other than that. 8 tracks of heavy fast grind in roughly 15 minutes. Check it out.

Dodlage - Ritual Slaughter

Portland crust kings Dodlage are back with their debut LP "Ritual Slaughter". 16 songs of nonstop d-beat/crust punk that'll bludgeon you back into the hole you crawled out of. Everything on this LP is an improvement on the foundations laid down on their previous EP and 7". Don't sleep on this one, don't fuck up.

Bruise - Wrongful Death EP

Bruise are a hardcore band hailing from Indiana, IN. Since their formation they've released the Vicious Instinct EP in April of 2006 and their most recent release, the Wrongful Death EP in October of 2006. This was one of my favorite releases from last year, and I can hear some similarities between these guys and some of my favorite hardcore bands like Integrity and Incendiary. Simply put, you'll be missing out on one of the best up and coming hardcore bands if you pass on this one. Dont. Fuck. Up.
