Nowadays, Blowfuse is one of the most known and active punk rock bands of their country, Spain. The band, hailing from Barcelona, was founded around 2008 and began playing shows under the name Godfarts. While gaining renown as Godfarts they released their first album “Messed Up Minds” in 2010. The band was renamed to Blowfuse in 2013. The same year they released “Into The Spiral”, which was recorded, produced and mixed by Darian Rundall, who also worked with bands like Pennywise, TSOL, Suicidal Tendencies and U.S. Bombs. Influenced by 80’s and 90’s punk rock waves and the skateboard lifestyle, Blowfuse crafts a style of its own, mixing the aggressiveness of hardcore punk, the catchy melodies of 90’s punk rock, the powerful classic rock riffs, and their acid and paranoiac lyrics. They have toured with bands like Pennywise, 7 Seconds, and played all over Europe. Sometimes even for a length of more than two months. Blowfuse also played with bands such as Adolescents, Face to Face, Authority Zero, A Wilhelm Scream, Youth Brigade, The Casualties, The Unseen and many others. In 2013 they even played the mainstage at the prominent Resurrection Fest, sharing the stage with Bad Religion, Millencolin and Biohazard. Being as young as they are, living one of their best moments, working on new projects, touring, filming their peculiar videos… And of course, totally committed to what they loved, and still love, music.

Hot Water Music is a Gainesville, Florida punk outfit known for Chuck Ragan and Chris Wollard's raspy vocals, as well as their searing Jawbreaker guitars on earlier albums. The act first formed in 1993, and their first record, Finding the Rhythms, was released on "No Idea Records" and "Toy Box Records". Many fans commonly refer to Hot Water Music as the abbreviation, HWM. The name Hot Water Music comes from a Charles Bukowski book. HWM recorded an album with their good friends and mentors Leatherface for the first volume of the BYO split series. They also recorded with Alkaline Trio for a split LP on Jade Tree shortly thereafter. In 2001, Hot Water Music signed with Epitaph Records and released the record A Flight and A Crash, and went on to release two more records with Epitaph, Caution and The New What Next. In addition to their full length albums and the two aforementioned split releases, Hot Water Music have also released 5 other EPs and split albums: Push for Coin (1995 - demo tape), Eating the Filler (1995- Toybox Records), Hot Water Music vs. Discount (New American Dreams) and Colors, Words, and Dreams (2002 - split with The Casket Lottery, Second Nature Recordings). In 2005 the band took a hiatus as vocalist Chuck Ragan wanted to spend more time with his family. Soon after, the rest of the band formed The Draft, and released their debut record, In A Million Pieces, September 12, 2006 on Epitaph Records, along with various 7" vinyl records on No Idea. Ragan has opted for a solo-acoustic act with No Idea records, releasing a monthly vinyl to prelude a full studio album, as well as two live discs. As for Hot Water Music, No Idea is getting ready to release a b-sides disc later this year. Members of Hot Water Music have been in various side projects, including Crows, Rumbleseat and Blacktop Cadence. On October 22, 2007, music website Punknews.org reported that a reunion of the band is currently in the works.

The U.S. Bombs will never die. Even when the day comes where the band no longer plays shows or makes records, they will still be bombing away in our hearts. Love’em or loathe’em, you can’t deny their place in punk rock history and Road Case, the Bombs new LP on Slope Records is here to cement their place in the eternal lore of leather, spikes, and most importantly, mother fucking fun. Opening track, “Riot Sirens” is classic Bombs all the way and when the Master of Disaster, Duane Peters, starts off with a line like, “Tonight’s the night, be ready for a riot…” you know it’s time to buckle up and take a ride with him and the boys that won’t let up until you need to flip the record to the other side. Recorded in couple of sessions over 2017 and 2018, Road Case is an instant classic and when the band takes the show on the road in late 2018 and early 2019, you’ll want to be up close to see and hear these songs live. Odes to skateboarding (“Pink Motel”) and struggle (“Refugee”) and excess (“Needles”) permeate this record, which is the first LP by U.S. Bombs since 2006. Road Case drops on November 23, 2018 and will be available here on Slope Records website, in record stores around the world, and from the band themselves on tour.

JARS


















"jars II"
Year:  2018
Country:  Russia
City:  Moscow
Label:  They Live
Format:  CD
Tracks:  10
Time:  40 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Post Hardcore
















The fans of the band tend to draw parallels between their favorite Moscow noise-makers and various United States outfits of the 1990s. The band members themselves, Anton (guitars and vocals), Sasha (bass) and Max (drums), though, are more inclined to self-deprecation. Visitors to their web resources are much more likely to encounter self-mockery than arrogance or the PR rhetoric befitting an international marketplace.

NATTERERS

Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  14
Time:  26 min.

Style:        Hardcore        Punk














Dead Kennedys seems the biggest influence for this band, their music, way of to sing and sound production. Natterers is one of the band names on everyone’s lips here in the UK diy scene at the moment; and with good reason. Hailing from Yorkshire, these guys have been touring constantly and have been attracting quite a lot of attention since the release of their 4 track demo last year. I was lucky enough to see them for the first time earlier this year at an all dayer with Discharge and they stuck in my mind as one of the best performances of the day; not only because of their music but also their stage presence. Emma, their powerful vocalist, pointed out she was the only female out of all the bands playing that day and called out for more women to get involved in the punk scene. Something I think we can all get behind. “Toxic Care” was released on June 23rd via Boss Tuneage Records & Serial Bowl Records.  It consists of 6 raw and catchy songs that prove again why Natterers are one of the most exciting up and coming bands in the UK. Check it out below (*Review by Steve Kingston).

Paranoid Visions are a punk band from Dublin, Ireland who formed in 1982. They broke up in 1992, had reunion shows and eventually decided to reunite. The band ran their own label, F.O.A.D. (Fuck Off And Die), during the 80s and 90s. The label was based in Dublin and run by guitarist, P.A. as is the bulk of their current administration to date. In 1987, the band started the FOAD2U2 campaign (meaning fuck off and die to U2). These letters could be seen sprayed all over Dublin at the time.[citation needed] Their EP, I Will Wallow is a parody of U2's album, Boy, and their single "I Will Follow". In . The band went on hiatus in the early 1990s reforming for shows in 1996 with the Sex Pistols on the Filthy Lucre Tour and the Damned on their 25th anniversary tour of 2001. In 2005 Toxic Records released the compilation "Outside in" resulting in the band reforming for a few shows in support of the release.The reformation led to a huge creative burst and resulted in the "Missing in Action" ep. The critical and commercial success of the record continued the creative vein and between 2005 and 2017 the band released 5 new albums and 12 singles. The January 2009 release Beware of the God.[6] was voted number 107 in the list of the most important Irish albums in Hot Press magazine, whilst the singles Politician, Treasure on the Wasteland and Outsider Artist (featuring TV Smith) all hit the Irish top 10. In 2013 the band formed an unlikely alliance with Crass vocalist Steve Ignorant which started out life as a single track and led on to regular live performances, 2 albums and 2 singles. The band alongside Steve have played some of the biggest alternative festivals in the world including Chicago's Riot Fest (att 80,000), Canada's Amnesia festival (att 60,000) and the annual appearance at the UK's Rebellion Festival, at which the band performed a set featuring Crass songs for the first time in 7 years alongside tracks by Flux of Pink Indians, Poison Girls, DIRT and Conflict as well as their own material.

Paranoid Visions formed in 1981 and are regarded as Irelands longest serving punk rock band. The band have played with and toured with artists like Jello Biafra, UK Subs, GBH, Poison Girls, Dirt, Conflict, Dickies, Theatre of Hate, New Model Army and The Damned. In 2013 they formed an alliance with Crass vocalist Steve Ignorant and continue to perform and record with him, so far the collaboration has produced two full length albums and two extended play singles. Set for release on August 4th 2017 and available from Advance Records , Paranoid Visions have recorded an extended set of tracks that would have been released as an EP but they have added five bonus tracks creating a hybrid EP/LP release. The album is pressed on beautiful pink vinyl and featuring a Lowry inspired painting of the band outside the Wintergarden in Blackpool, the home of the annual Rebellion festival. After charting in Ireland with their last release with Steve Ignorant, Deko and the band have another chance with this one delivering on 35 years of punk rock innovation and sheer dedication. The simply magnificent opener, No Pasaran (Are You Getting The Picture) is epic in scope and sound. With superb female/male vocal alternating the leads and a massive chorus with keyboard enhancement, I was simply stunned at one of the tracks of the year with some brilliant anti-racism lyrics. Ego Mania (It’s All About You) focuses on the social media trend creating self obsessed citizens “you’ve got a smart phone, but you’re not too bright”!  It’s a powerful punk rock song and Paranoid Visions are a band at the top of their game full of power, anger and melody with some great songwriting chops – the sound reminds me of Anima Mundi, a superb Los Angeles anarcho-punk band…loved it! On Greytown the focus turns to a mosh-pit friendly song about living in despair at banality and it packs a serious punch with a UK Subs vibe. The focus on societies decline continues with Dead Zoo as the band tackles the subject of drug and alcohol abuse. The song opens with a mournful guitar and Deko’s signature voice delivers a ballad style restrained punk/folk track. With some soaring guitar work, the lyrics hit hard and the echoing female backing vocals add an eerie atmosphere to a powerful track. The record is strictly limited to 500 copies and some even more limited edition copies come with a cd version cased in a printed tin. The five bonus tracks consist of three tracks recorded live in the studio (no overdubs / first takes) The Angelus combines military drums with church bells, a priest and builds, and builds with single strummed power chords  before launching into a churning head banger with a New Model Army vibe. Murder Most Foul creates a lonely street scene with footsteps and dogs barking before the pounding bass and reverb tinged chords lead into a great guitar lick to produce a slower number led by the female vocals and telling a story with aplomb – “You Watch your Back” – indeed! The third of the five bonus tracks is a ska-infused boot stomper whereas West One is a heavier punk rock track covering The Ruts classic. The album concludes with a total departure in sound with a stunning dance remix of the 2012 track Statement of Intent featuring the Shend (from the Cravats) – it’s a raver and its bloody brilliant.
