Testament Low LP on 180g orange/yellow mixed coloured vinyl. Low was the first Testament release not to feature two of its founding members Alex Skolnick (guitar) and Louie Clemente (drums). But even without their company they created a true masterpiece. They replaced Skolnick with death-metal prodigy James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Disincarnate), and put drummer Mike Tempesta (Exodus) behind the kit. The dark and raging sounds represent some of their best work. This thing is utterly crushing from the second you hit ‘play,’ full of choppy, claustrophobic riffs that are somewhere between thrash and death metal. Testament is often credited as one of the most popular and influential bands of the thrash metal scene, having sold over 14 million albums worldwide. In their early years they supported legendary acts such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Anthrax, Megadeth, Overkill, Judas Priest and Slayer. They also gained critical recognition for embarking on the European Clash of the Titans tour with Slayer, Megadeth and Suicidal Tendencies. To this day, the band continues to record and perform live. Low is available as a limited edition of 1.500 Individually numbered copies on coloured (solid orange & yellow mixed) vinyl. Music On Vinyl LP

Lead single "Avoidarama" showcases Drug Church's skill at deftly combining pummeling riffs with undeniable hooks, while its Ian Shelton-directed video interprets frontman Patrick Kindlon's sardonic storytelling with a subject who plays dead to avoid awkward interactions.

The Bronx New Joy A special 7" single taken from The Bronx's awesome 5th full length album V. Super important and influential punk that we've loved a Banquet for a long while. “It has the angst and social commentary that has characterized us from the beginning,” guitarist Joby J. Ford says, “only now the angst is aimed at more than just superficial things and the social commentary is directed at more than just people who like different music than us.” Cooking Vinyl 7"
FEVER 333 Made An America The hugely anticipated debut release from FEVER 333, the new collective project from Jason Aalan Butler, formerly of Letlive. Huge, stomping hardcore-punk-rock tunes with highly political lyrics, danceable beats and a splash of soul. Like letlive., this is music born from the streets, from fighting, from standing up to be who you are. But there’s something more direct here than Jason’s previous band, with a Rage Against The Machine-ish stomp throughout. Roadrunner 12"
