permanent night demo (2012)

im back again, first multiple post month this year! yay! anyways, permanent night are a band from louisville who play dark nasty ragged hardcore in the breather resist vein, which is to be somewhat expected of Louisville bands, given BR's high profile and subsequent influence among certain sets.....everything is nice and loud and savage, just the way it should be.......i should've reviewed this a long time back, but things kept comming up and it just sorta got pushed back and pushed back until i forgot about it. in any case this is a hell of a start for any band and im looking forward to hearing more in the future.....its right up there with heemeyer  (a heemeyer/permanent night split would be perfect) in my list of top shelf hardcore thats been released in the past year.....great stuff that id recommend to anyone who loves i loud and heavy.

gay kiss - fault (2012)

so this came out at the tail end of lat year.....really im counting this as a 2013 release as its impact or "buzz" will be felt this year....i reviewed this band's "7 last year and as good as that record was, this one tops it in every way possible...........if your not in the know, gay kiss are from arizona and play loud fucked up hardcore with manic vocals.......its pretty fuckin unique....midpaced and abrasive with echoey riffs here, blastbeats there and those harsh, almost vomited vocals over it all.....they've carved out their own niche in hardcore and im lovin it.......along with the new cloud rat lp, this is already the co-record of 2013....pick this up while its still hot.......they just toured the east coast (not the midwest, unfortunately for me....fuck) look for them to hit a town near you sometime soon......this record is the motherfucker.
