England’s Baby Godzilla have release the official video for their new single, “The Great Hardcore Swindle”.

On September 8th, Solar Flare Records will release the second full length album from French noise rock outfit Pord, Wild. The album will feature 40 minutes of intense, noise laden rock and roll that would make Amphetamine Reptile blush, and we have your first taste! We at American Aftermath are happy to bestow upon you the opening track from Wild, “Staring into Space”. The track revolves around a dirty, rumbling bass lines and sparse, dissonant guitars that eventually lead into a hard rock stampede hellbent on causing blunt-force trauma. We dig it and so should you. You can check out the track after the break along with the album’s artwork and track listing.

Darkest Hour aren’t wasting any time promoting their new, self-titled album, and Sumerian debut. The band has released numerous tracks and I honestly have no idea where the fuck these guys are going any more. I have yet to hear a track that sounds like one of the others, so I don’t know how this will flow as an album. I guess I’ll just wait and see when the album drops in August. Until then, check out the bands latest track “The Misery We Make” after the jump. Continue reading →

Throatruiner Records has yet to release an album that I have not enjoyed. With amazing records from Plebeian Grandstand, Cortez, Vuyvr, Bone Dance and more, you just can’t go wrong.
