Every Second Counts

Every Second Counts, 2007

8.7 / 10

Cruel Hand

Without a Pulse, 2007

8.2 / 10

It's time to play the ex-member/members of game again. This time we have members and former members of the Maine hardcore unit, Outbreak. If I'm not mistaken Cruel Hand is ...

No Apologies

Survival, 2007

5.5 / 10

Survival is the debut full-length from No Apologies. This five-piece outfit comes from the land of koalas and aborigines. This album is filled with plenty of moshy New York-inspired hardcore, ...

Alpha & Omega

Devil's Bed, 2008

8.2 / 10
200 Words Or Less

You know when George sings on Blacklisted's Heavier than Heaven, Lonelier than God and you really liked that grungey overblown style? Oh wait that was me. Anyhow... now you can ...

Swamp Thing - In Shame album cover

Swamp Thing

In Shame, 2009

8.7 / 10

Rob Gordon's first lines uttered in High Fidelity are What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some ...

Bad Seed - Bad Seed album cover

Bad Seed

Bad Seed, 2009

6.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Members of Title Fight do a hardcore band, neat. The four songs on this platter remind me of early Merauder crossed with Cold World for a knockdown drag out testosterone ...

Backtrack - Deal With the Devil album cover


Deal With the Devil, 2009

8.4 / 10
200 Words Or Less

This EP is fairly similar to another recent 6131 release from Bad Seed. This isn't a bad thing. This is a renaissance of sorts for heavy NYHC. Where Bad Seed ...

Joyce Manor - Self Titled album cover

Joyce Manor

Self Titled, 2011

8.0 / 10

Who ever said louder isn’t better? Joyce Manor have been breaking down the walls of every town they play up and down the west coast with their rowdy live performances ...

Rotting Out - Street Prowl album cover

Rotting Out

Street Prowl, 2011

There's something generally referred to as a summer record. That elusive album that you can blast out of the windows of your car and feel perfectly in that time frame ...

Souvenirs - Tired Of Defending You album cover


Tired Of Defending You, 2012

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

When I first heard that Souvenirs was signed to 6131 I was expecting another straight-up generic hardcore band. However, upon listening to their first release from last year, Sadder Days, ...

Julien Baker - Sprained Ankle album cover

Julien Baker

Sprained Ankle, 2015

8.2 / 10

Similar to how people said, “Alright, I guess we’re done with the novel now” after James Joyce’s Ulysses, I thought, “Alright, I guess we’re done with the singer-songwriter genre now” ...

Worriers - You or Someone You Know album cover


You or Someone You Know, 2020

7.9 / 10

If it weren’t for playing in a certain scene, Worriers would likely be branded as a pop band instead of punk. The band is DIY all the way, with a ...
