|FLOWER 30- THE GENTLE ART OF CHOKIN`/ SICK TERROR – split 7″
T.G.A.O.C. from germany delivers their first vinyl output. 8 blistering assaults, with influences ranging from mid/late 80’s UK thrash to early 90’s California fastcore. Catchy riffs, hammering drums and desperate vocals make this split release stick to your turntable. SICK TERROR from brazil on the flipside counter with 4 tunes of fast and intense hc – grind with that typical south-american touch we all like so much. Sometimes even some path-breaking italian hc outfits occure to me.
|FLOWER 29- ASSCHAPEL – Fire and Destruction LP
Heavy, thick powered-hardcore with guttural vocals and weaving layered style. Their sound is intense with power of dual vocals and weaving guitars driven by the pummel of a double bass drum. The break into some manic crazy thrash parts too.
|FLOWER 28- BETERCORE / MY OWN LIES – split 7″
I think two of the best fastcorebands in europe right now and that both on one release, awesome. Both bands went to good studios and make brutal recordings with much power and aggressiveness
|FLOWER 27- HOLIER THAN THOU
– we come in peace,…..and leave in pieces 7″
new EP of these thrashers from the US. sounds like HERESY goes ACCÜSED.
|FLOWER 26- WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? – euro trash 7″
US thrash heros, new recordings for the european tour.
|FLOWER 25- THE NOW-DENIAL – truth is on fire 12″
The first full-length after their debut split 7″ with SEEIN RED (at least one other cool band started their vinyl career with a split release with the dutch thrashers before hehe). If you dig up tempo hardcore punk with a message that combines the kick ass energy of TRAGEDY, FROM AHSES RISE and POISON IDEA you will probably like this band as well.
|FLOWER 24- ARTIMUS PYLE – inheritance 7″
new recordings of this amazing HC band with one member of WHN?. sounds like HIS HERO IS GONE or bands like that. Now mix with more swedish stuff.
|FLOWER 23- POTOMAC – synaptic syntax error 12″
After the great 2x 7″, now a full-lenth in the same style but with a better sound. somtimes it remindes me on bands like PG.99 mixed with older „gravity / ebullition“ stuff.
|FLOWER 22- MY OWN LIES / Y – split LP
2 german fastcore bands… M.O.L: 14x fastcore galore. this time they were in the same studio as STACK / PRONE. awesome! Y recorded they best songs ever. weird breaks and power to the max.
|FLOWER 21- CHEERLEADERS OF THE APOCALYSE – new 7″
this should’ve been a 6″ on an american label, but first the band needed too long to finish the layout, so the label got fed up and would’ve released it in a year or so. now their guitarplayer has a label as well, but sadly not the money. that’s where i came in! maybe you remember them from their split 7″ w/ HOKUS on SEP – if you don’t, COTA are crazy metal HC like CREATION IS CRUCIFIXION or other technical HC-bands nowadays like UNRUH / SUICIDE NATION….
