LISTEN: PROTESTER, "S/T" EP (2014)

Last year's demo was great—this is that much better. Early DC meets Detroit / Boston Hardcore... and just look at that cover art. Great stuff on all accounts.

LISTEN: STERILIZED, "CHEMICAL DUST" EP (2014)

Blazing, brutal, USHC influenced D-Beat from Olympia, WA. Four heavy, extremely well-crafted songs all clocking in at under 2 minus each. Perfect. Give it a listen.

LISTEN: SOUL SEARCH / MINUS SPLIT 7" (2014, CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES)

Four incredible new tracks from two of SoCal's own, Soul Search and Minus. Soul Search gives two new tracks of metal-influenced hardcore, reminiscent of Merauder, Madball and Obituary, while Minus provides two new tracks of straight-forward hardcore in the vein of Madball, Dmize and Terror. Recorded by Taylor Young (Twitching Tongues, Nails) at The Pit so you know it bangs.
