Ledge (US) – “Cold Hard Concrete”

PISSED OFF. That’s what this is. The epitome of angry music. Get ready to break a lot of stuff around you when this is playing. John Hoffman/Snyder/John Caution/Bot Fly The Cockroach (and more aliases) of Weekend Nachos put this together with crushing production from Andy Nelson (also previously in Weekend Nachos).

Xylitol (US) – “Is Toxic To Pigs??”

Ok, this one has a funny backstory for how I found out about them: I recommended the Icelandic punk-beast Dauðyflin to a Scottish friend (she has a blog over here) – that band subsequently releases a split with Xylitol. Xylitol gets posted by my friend and, well, here we are – digging up music from across the world while being in different places. Fuck borders, right? ENJOY!

FFO: Dauðyflin, Sudor, Kurrakä

Spectral Voice (US) / Phrenelith (DK) – “Split EP”

Great, great, great split EP from two powerhouses of death metal. Also be on the look out for Phrenelith‘s forthcoming full length.

FFO: Undergang, old school death metal, black/white drawings of disgusting shit

Concealed Blade (US) – “Concealed Blade”

I’m just gonna copy the text from Beach Impediment’s description:

“All the way from the city of champions, CONCEALED BLADE follow up their massive 2015 demo with thirteen more tracks of the pummeling hardcore punk that those aligned with the Braddock Hit Factory have been churning out for many moons now; keeping the emphasis on quality over commonplace, riffs over a complete lack of riffs, and really just hardcore over horse shit. This 12” platter is evidence that THE BLADE still ain’t for the weak and is just as precise and cutting in the execution of their songs as they’ve ever been. As a sage like man of wisdom probably once bellowed over a lukewarm bottle of Straubs and a half eaten pizza boat at the Rock Room, “YINZ WANTED DA BEST WELL YINZ GOT DA BEST!””

FFO: The Boston Strangler, Impalers, dive bombs
