 DIREWOLVES «Aegri Somnia»March 31th 2014 · LP, CD, Digital · THRT041

"Formed in 2011 in Lorient, western France, DIREWOLVES rapidly stood out from the pack by combining both the melodic and the heavy aspects of punk hardcore. Their first full-length «Aegri Somnia» not only follows the path of their EP «Me From Myself, To Banish» (2012) but also enhances the spectrum of their sound, browsing through a large range of sub-genres while avoiding their respective clichés. Songs such as "Holy Treason" or "Face The Facts" show the band at their most vehement, colliding unstoppable drumming with heavily metallic-influenced riffs while the end of the record explores more emotionally-charged post-metallic soundscapes. With their constant will to remain straightforward but diversified DIREWOLVES deliver eleven highly epic and passionate anthems, condensing everything you could expect from a great hardcore LP in 2014."

 DAGGERS «It's Not Jazz, It's Blues»March 31th 2014 · LP, Digital · THRT040

"During their five years of existence, Belgium's DAGGERS have worked hard on creating unique and singular records to forge a very personal sound. Their new full-length "It's Not Jazz, It's Blues" is an entire different animal than on their crust-infused hardcore previous releases, delivering twelve epic tracks that will drag you down to the bottom of the earth and shred the living out of you with the haste and anger of a thousand rusty swords. Captured in an organic live recording setting, "It's Not Jazz, It's Blues" takes a hypnotic, noisy approach to the band's claustrophobic blend of punk and metal, more ruthless and vicious than ever."

 CALVAIIRE «Forceps»December 31th 2013 · LP, CD, Tape, Digital · THRT039

"CALVAIIRE is the union of four individuals with no higher ambition than to push their own boundaries into a raw, cathartic sound. Recorded in five days in their hometown of Laval (France) with Amaury Sauvé (producer/sound engineer for Birds in Row & As We Draw, acts with which the band shares members), their debut full-length "Forceps" displays their personal vision of how aggressive music should sound - bleak, visceral metallic hardcore played with the hunger of starving dogs, while lyrically addressing seclusion, anxiety and forging ahead despite prevailing vacuity. These ten tracks were tracked in a live setting, resulting in a massive, unpolished, and raw recording that accurately mimics the tense and the unpredictable character of "Forceps". From the mood swings of "Flétrissure" to the heartless assault of the closing track "Meurtrières", the band demonstrates their will to explore the most abrasive subgenres without losing focus on songwriting, creating an ambitious but coherent piece of work where nothing is left to chance."

 ELIZABETH «Insomnia»December 15th 2013 · 7", Digital · THRT038

"Switzerland's very own ELIZABETH return with new EP "Insomnia"; four new tracks of hardcore/crust/whatever showing their ability to write neckbreaking hymns and intended to be played at full volume. An intense barrage of manic drumming, chainsaw-tone guitars, and these trademark raspy screams that come from nowhere : on this EP the band goes one step further into heaviness without sacrificing dynamics. After the recent release of an LP documenting all their previous body of work, "Insomnia" is a brutal foretaste of all things to come for ELIZABETH."

 DEATH MERCEDES «Sans Éclat»December 15th 2013 · LP, Digital · THRT037

"With members hailing from various backgrounds (Amanda Woodward, Cowards, L'Homme Puma, Ravi), the 2011-formed parisian outfit DEATH MERCEDES plays a brand of passionate hardcore/punk that is difficult to nail down to a specific genre. The band's debut full-length "Sans Éclat" features ten tracks swinging between crust, screamo and half a dozen other sub-genres to create a very personal sound - strongly melodic while remaining loud and unpolished, and with gruffy vocals delivering (in french) disillusioned and introspective lyrics. Recorded on june 2013 by producer Francis Caste (Kickback, Comity, Hangman's Chair…) at Sainte-Marthe Studio, "Sans Éclat" is a captivating debut album with a richness and a soul that tend to be hard to find these days."
