STATIC SHOCK GIG VOL #177
Toronto's S.H.I.T. are back in London for this one off UK show on the way to Puntala fest in Finland! 'What Do You Stand For?' was one of the best hardcore punk records of 2018, but live is where the really excel. Very excited to have them back in town!
"Arms Race arrived on the scene fully formed with their powerful and gnarly UK-meets-USA hardcore: their signature sound of a vocalist chewing on glass is backed by one of the most solid rhythm sections in HC these days, and the guitar work adds a metallic element making the whole sound gigantic while keeping the ugliness and aggression to the max. NWOBHC is a statement of no-frills hardcore that is not scared to reach out to different corners of the punk and metal world."
London’s Subdued throttles gasps of brickwall torture in and amongst the poison flora of spoken word which will legitimately make a mother cry. Nods to the impassable corners of Celtic Frost and the broken necks of enthusiastic Amebix fans, all with a specific kind of listless stare into the white void of repetitive oblivion.
Record release show for the Pathetic Flesh LP on La Vida Es Un Mus! "On their first vinyl effort, ASID’s almost monomaniacal devotion to gutting hardcore of its accretions of style and refinement and revelling in its basest instincts of power and fury is on rude display. Pounding forward with a jackhammer beat, ASID burn through tough riffs birthed choking in a dirty glut of muggy fuzz that conjures up the sickened tone of something like Disclose's Nightmare or Reality 12". Pathetic Flesh is an intense explosion of a record, chucking up the rudimentary stomp of Fever, the brawny pogo of Bootlicker, the panic-stricken downhill rush of the title track. This record is a total hardcore statement, with stunning art from the singer Tin, whose tortured yell struggles painfully against the storm of the noise, breaking through with ugly anguish."
