STEP FORWARD

Demos 1989-1990 LP Refuse

Step Forward. Umeå Hardcore Originals. In 1989 there were no such things as Umeå Hardcore. There was no scene and hardly any punk bands. A bunch of friends got together under the moniker of Step Forward to play fast and wild Hardcore. This is the first proper Straight Edge band of Sweden - started a couple of years after some members of legendary Svart Parad brought it to Scandinavia. They were in many ways the origins of the scene that in the 90’s exploded with bands like Refused, Abhinanda, The Doughnuts, Final Exit and Umeå Hardcore became a thing outside of Sweden. In their short lifespan between 89-91 they recorded two demos, put on numerous shows and did a fanzine called Umeå Hardcore Zine. For the first time ever the 2 demos are being released on vinyl. Remastered and with liner notes from Dennis Lyxzen and a bunch of unseen photos. The band was only around for a fraction of time but they had a huge impact on the small world surrounding them and Dennis of course went on to form REFUSED right after the break up. Members of STEP FORWARD were also involved in bands like FINAL EXIT, INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY, E.T.A., REGULATIONS, AC4 or INVSN in the next three decades! If you are into fast Hardcore done by a bunch of alienated teens from the north of Sweden you need to check out this record. On colored vinyl.

CONQUEST FOR DEATH

A Maelstrom Of Resentment LP Refuse

After several years in the shadows, CONQUEST FOR DEATH offer their first full length slab since 2013’s Many Nations, One Underground. Breaking from their routine of haste and geographical separation, A Maelstrom Of Resentment and Remorse was written in Oakland over the course of several months following their East Asian tour in 2015, giving them time to fully develop and realize songs while honing sights on the short blasts of fury that have been their signature since the band was born out of an impossible idea more than a decade ago. Razor sharp guitars have a heft that we haven’t heard before from CFD, and the addition of B (SCHOLASTIC DEATH, NO STATIK) on drums has turned their thrash into a battering ram. Dating back to his time in WHN?, and ALL YOU CAN EAT before that, Devon’s words have always provoked thought, but this record shows a reflection that is not always pretty, or even hopeful…and he’s showing us our own faces in that mirror. Doses of frustration to rip the scabs off of still healing wounds, exposing our differences and our hypocrisies with lyrics decidedly more dark than the band’s previous releases, a darkness and intensity that consumes the vocal delivery. But the record is not without hope, far from it, and closes with a two minute sonic montage featuring the voices of friends from all over the world celebrating the power of DIY hardcore in more than fifteen languages. Grit your teeth if you need to, fight through the frustration, because there’s a reason we are still here.

LEEWAY

Open Mouth Kiss LP Reality

Released in 1995, "open mouth kiss" was the final full-length from NYHC groove masters LEEWAY. Groovy, fast, hard and again the vocal patterns and melodies were beyond the normal conception of what hardcore had been. If you're the type of hardcore fan who only enjoys only the straightforward hardcore, then this ain't for you. LEEWAY has constantly evolved and this is a great musical adjustment they made.

COLD AS LIFE

Demos 95-97 LP Backside

I think Cold As Life is a band that needs no introduction, because for several decades they represented the most sincere and brutal sound straight from the streets of Detroit. 

Formed in the late 1980s, they tragically lost their original singer Rawn Beuty ( RIP ) who was murdered in 1992. With Rawn on vocals they recorded a couple of excellent demos, a little more punk and oi influenced than the new direction the band was soon taking after the changes suffered as a result of his loss, when Jeff Gunnels assumed the role of singing as well as playing guitar. In 1998 they would release one of the best hardcore albums of the 90s, Born to land hard.
The Demos 95-97 LP brings together the two demos that they released the previous years to Born to land hard, in which you could already see the new, even more brutal and metal path that the band was taking. Side A of the album includes the demo from 1995, with songs still reminiscent of their early era, still with some OI sound on it like the song Addicted , and on side B the demo of 1997, a new step for the band into the most brutal and metallic hardcore sound a band could get, clear the roots of what their first album Born to land hard was gonna be.

TURNING POINT

Demo CS Revelation

This recreation of the Turning Point demo tape from 1988 is the first release as Revelation Records reissues the band's out-of-print catalog. From New Jersey, Turning Point was the state's answer to the hardcore movement of New York and Connecticut of the late-'80s, playing up and down the East Coast with Chain Of Strength, Bold, Judge, Burn, Mouthpiece, and many more before disbanding in 1991. Jade Tree and Think Fast! Records released the band's catalog as a discography in the early 2000s, but none of the releases have been issued as stand-alone records since they were first released.
