      OBLITERATIONS (Southern Lord Recordings​)
      Hailing from LA, California, these guys bring a cacophony of blistering hardcore fired by a stooges sensibility. Existing somewhere between Pissed Jeans, Negative Approach and MC5, these guys have been around only a short time and have already been smashing loads of venues with some great bands. Their touring history has included supporting Saviours, Eyehategod and Black Breath to name but a few.

      Their new album 'Poison Everything' was recorded at Dave Grohls Studio 606 by Chris Owens (Young Widows, Lords) and mixed by the mighty Kurt Balou of Converge fame. So, as expected, this album tears your ears off.

      Here are a few words by Southern Lord about their new release:

      "the end result of Poison Everything is a thirteen-song, twenty-nine-minute record full of raw brutality, darkness and aggression, the album weaving its way through the annals of punk and hardcore, while still sounding fresh and vital."

      Obliterations' mission is simple a one; write, record, tour, and that’s just what they do.

      Formed in 2007, Mob Rules have been a pillar of Leeds hardcore since then. Infamous for their live shows, even the Guardian has picked up on the vibrations they're making in the national hardcore scene.

      The unique thing about these guys is that convention has no place in their music. They seamlessly transition slow and bludgeoning riffs with the speed of DRI whilst remaining fully focused on delivering a raucous, unrelenting live presence.
      Mob Rules haven't played Leeds since July last year so, make sure you don't miss this!

      They've kindly made their brilliant 'Nothing Left' LP available for free download via:

      "‘Cesstone music to try the patience of the Hardcore’, MOB RULES are arguably one of best bands on the UK Hardcore scene at the moment, Leeds anger-fuelled Powerviolence at its best. This four-piece are practically Leeds’ answer to Black Flag."

      Formed from the smelly ashes of Scarborough punk band 'Nose', PR offer up some right old noise rock for your ears. A mixture of satire, discordance and heavy slabs of tone.

      "The astonishing, nine minute long epic Hallow Thee By Name (Cut The Cord) sounds like Crass having a hissy fit. It's noisy, it's angry, it's punk rock at it's most visceral and it's most progressive. You won't hear anything this threatening in 2015." - The Devil Has The Best Tuna

      Leeds powerviolence, previously a power-trio, now with added bass. LC are fairly new on the scene but have played tonnes of gigs and even toured with fellow local grinders Famine​. Featuring members of Dog Eggs, Healing Powers and probably about ten other bands. Super pro-active, super fast, super powerful.
      I highly recommend getting their self-titled EP off bandcamp. Its bloody great.
