Silent Era - 'O Horizon' LP

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday May 23 2018 in New Releases

Sabotage Records are releasing Silent Era's 'O Horizon' LP on June 1st. Here's what the label says about it: "The People in this band are punk lifers, who walk the walk, know what they're doing and don't fuck around about it. That's reflected here in nine tracks of the sort of personally political punk , that no one else really makes anymore (along with one more experimental interlude). The writing and production may harken back to the 80s heyday of melodic hardcore I most associate with the likes of Dan, Instigators or Political Asylum, but this is far from a straight genre exercise. This music stands in its own right, propelled by Michelle's powerful vocals. As outlined in and enhanced bythe lyric booklet, each of these songs in actually about something, a thoughtful evocation of a feeling or an examination of a situation that will no doubt resonate with any sentinent punk in 2018. 'O Horizon' deserves a place on everyone's turntable."

Annex - 'Melu' LP

added by Alex Deller on Thursday May 10 2018 in New Releases

Imminent Destruction have a new release out - the UK/Euro pressing of Annex's 'Melu' LP. Info is: "New LP from the Texas/Mexico border. While their last two records were catchy and melodic, this marks a step up with a sterling production, crystal-clear mastering and perfectly sculpted, ambitious tunes that display a massive improvement in depth and variation. The dark deathrock and post-punk influences familiar to fans of Belgrado or Arctic Flowers remain, but add infectious melodies, hypnotic guitars and a danceable backbeat, whilst Nikki's vocals once more deliver the punk brattishness of her roots whilst expanding into unique new territory. Lyrics in Spanish and English." North AMerican types can get it from Adelante Discos or Occult Whispers.
