Regression – Progress? (No More Blue Balls Punk)

Regression – Progress? (No More Blue Balls Punk)

  I personally had to do some digging to find this, because I rarely get punk submissions and when I do they're typically shit. They probably like to hear that but I don't mean good shit, I mean just plain shit. I've been on a punk blue balls bender for years now because of the […]

Roadkiller – S/T (One-Guitar Biker Punk)

  I was immediately drawn to the cover of this EP, because, um, look now, skeleton thing and it's riding a motorcycle whilst wielding a chain. And it's riding over skeletons. I mean basically it's some Ghost Rider shit without breaking copyright law, but this album most certainly breaks the law(s) in another way. Thought […]

TRUCHŁO STRZYGI – Pora Umierać (Polish Death Smash Punk)

  Finally some punk I can legitimately review without feeling like I'm forcing it so this site seems diverse. Leave it to the Polish underground for it to happen, as typical punk submissions are too oiboi for me. Yes, there are also oigirls, but the term doesn't have the rhyme pattern my exquisite reviewing skills demand, […]

Destroy All Gondolas – Laguna Di Satana

It's rare that I actually say something is unique. And I should make that as actually say so you get the emphasis. I joke, I rip to pieces, I vent, but sometimes I give my blood. It is time to give your blood to this band. I remember when I first reviewed their S/T 7" three […]

Collision – Satanic Surgery

Did you know that grindcore can seriously be a real genre?  It's true.  Unfortunately, not true enough, but when it's true, it's TRUE in ALL CAPS.  Perhaps it's just difficult to be that true, considering all the obstacles.  The ineffectual "humor", the sloppy chord work for legitimacy, the samples, you know it all already because […]

SPLITting Headache – Buncha Metal

Well, we finally made some sense out of what we want to do with this new special feature of ours, titled, as you can see, SPLITting Headache.  The problem we've always had with splits is that you have at least two bands, but sometimes more than that, and how do you go about reviewing that? […]

Mayak – Allegiance to None

Mayak – Allegiance to None

Now here's an interesting mix from Bielefeld, Germany.  In this modern era, you have the pontifiers of the classique, those who refuse to quit the age-old style of various genres, content with appealing to a rather stagnant fan base.  In addition to that camp you have the truly unique, those who often create a wide […]

Missiles of October – Don’t Panic

Missiles of October – Don’t Panic

What is this some sort of Douglas Adams reference?  Listen, before we get to the punk, let it be know Deaf Sparrow does not like that novel one bit.  It was one of the most awful and overrated pieces of literature to ever pass these eyes (editor).  Isn't that interesting?  A digression at the start of […]

Destroy All Gondolas – S/T 7″

Destroy All Gondolas – S/T 7″

Man, seriously, various things were sprayed out of our pants in laughter at this band's name.  This was then followed by further confoundment when the press release was scoped from Kornalcielo Records, reading simply that these Italian crazymen played punk/surf/hardcore with a dose of Satanic imagery.  "Really," we thought, "It's either a joke or completely […]
