SACRED SHOCK - S/T EP (2008)

 If you dug that Sacred Shock 12" I posted the other day, you might like this 7" a bit more. At least I did anyways. 'Planet Decay' is a straight up banger in my books.

SACRED SHOCK - You're Not With Us LP (2009)

 A buddy of mine was selling a bunch of records for cheap so being the nice guy that I am, I took some off his hands for him. This LP was in that pile. I never heard these guys before, but I thought I'd give 'em a shot. They hailed from Austin Texas and featured members of Iron Age, Insect Warfare, Mammoth Grinder, Vaasa, etc...

STATE - Sanctimony EP (2008)

 To prove their 2006 return album 'All Wrong' wasn't just a one off, State kept the ball rollin' with this banger. If you're not hooked by the opening riff on the title track then... I don't know what to tell you.

TRAGIEDIA - Punk 'Til Destruction LP (2015)


Like many bands from Poland in the 80's, Tragiedia never released a record during their existence. But did they record a couple demos, which were compiled here on vinyl decades later. I may have the track listing wrong on this rip as side A has twelve songs but the back cover, label and lyric sheet shows thirteen. So I'm not sure which track is missing as the lyrics are sung in Polish. I even tried comparing the songs to Post Regiment's covers from their 'TRAGIEDIA WG POST REGIMENT' tribute record. So your guess is as good as mine.

VA - Jak Punk To Punk LP (1987)

This comp is just chock full of hits! Great place to start if you're unfamiliar with early Polish punk.

REASON OF INSANITY - S/T LP (2005)

 A little late to the party when it comes to these guys but hey, better late than never. I was familiar with their name through guitarist Josh Wolf's other projects Secret Prostitutes and Bloody Hammer. Listening to this record takes kinda me back to going to all ages shows in the 90's and early 00's. I definitely would've bought their tape or record at the merch table after their set.
 Side one was recorded in 2001 and was originally intended to be on a split LP with Direct Control. Side two recorded in '03. With 26 songs clocking in at 37 minutes, this LP does feel like a double album by hardcore standards.
