Alright you big dumb bitches I haven’t submitted shit in a minute so here we go. First up we got Primitive by the Boston Strangler. This is the 2011 release on Fun With Smack records .this shit is straight rippin'. Some straight up 80’s style Boston straight edge shit that sounds equivalent to what a nice, swift kick to the head would feel like. This release totally sounds like they took the nitty grittiness of SS Decontrol's Get It Away, and totally did their own thing with it. I highly recommend this album and their 2014 second release Fire, which contains killer anthems like Fire, What You Get, and my favorite The Truth. This shit makes me wanna drink some beers and burn the fuckin' city down. If you happen to find copies of Primitive and Fire PICK THEM SHITS UP!!!!!!
Next up we got the follow up to Eye For An Eye by Corrosion Of Conformity, Animosity, released on Death Records in '85, this release shows a more matured C.O.C. and lemme tell you, this album will grab you by the fuckin balls, rip 'em off then shove 'em down your grandmother’s throat TO THE MAX !!!!!!!! I love Eye For An Eye, because it’s just fast, hardcore that is absolutely fuckin all over the place, but Animosity, HOLY FUCKIN' MOLY!!!!!!!!!! Dude this shit is fuckin top notch crossover!!!!!! The production on the second half of this record is different from the first half. The first half of this record is absolutely FLAWLESS in my opinion. Favorite track is Mad World hands down. DON'T BE A PUSSY AND TOTALLY PICK THIS SHIT UP !!!!
Onto some more current good ol’ American hardcore coming straight outta Richmond, VA, is mother fuckin' Government Warning. The ’06 release No Moderation, on Feral Ward Records is a blistering release. Straight up fast Skate Punk this and the follow up Paranoid Mess, on Grave Mistake / No Way Records, will completely melt your tits ,and make your dick fly off. This full length issue is equivalent to being punched by that commie fuck Ivan Drago from Rocky 4 , right in yer cunt if you're pregnant!!!!!!! Pick these up and check their ’05 release No Way Out, ’06 release Arrested, and '07 released Executed, all on Grave Mistake / No Way Records.
If any of these sound interesting to you, or if you don't already own any of this magnificent releases, then please do yourself a favor and go to the labels that put out these records and check that shit out or go to discogs.com and buy somebody's used copy of it. Either / or.
