DAMAGE DEPOSIT - Straight To The Bottom EP (2004)

Okay, last entry of this month's Havoc Records spotlight with a band fronted by the man that runs the label, Felix Havoc.

"Minneapolis hardcore crust punk at it's most tough and brutal. This band started originally with Chad of Calloused on Drums, Link of Pontious Pilate on bass, Big Rick of Code 13, Rat Bastards, Dead Drunk, Motherfuckers, Impulse Manslaughter etc. on guitar and Andy Hefner on vocals. They recorded a 7" for Sin Fronteras and a split ep with Minneapolis metallic crust core band Provoked. Path of Destruction also toured Europe and the USA with this line up. Andy left and was replaced by Pignose of Assrash on vocals. Since the days of Hell Spawn I've thought Pignose had the most punk as fuck vocal delivery. The main influence here is Poison Idea and when you spin this sucker you will Feel the Darkness. But it's hard to really nail these guys down as punk, hardcore or crust since their style really draws on elements prevalent in all three subgenres for maximum impact."

ASSEMBLY OF GOD - Submission Obedience Denial EP (2001)

Screamy hardcore from Oklahoma featuring members of Brother Inferior and Burnpile. And when I say screamy I don't mean screamo, so don't worry.

Havoc Records month continues with this overlooked band from small town Wisconsin. They also had an LP out on Deranged Records too.

AUS-ROTTEN - Fuck Nazi Sympathy EP (1994)

A friend of mine was getting rid of a bunch of old 7"s so I gladly took them off his hands. Many of them happen to be released by Havoc Records so I thought I'd make August Havoc records month. Going in chronological order here's the first one, which according to the Havoc website sold 22,000 copies. Judging by all the Aus-Rotten patches I see out there I guess it's not too surprising.
