The Bastard Noise/The Endless Blockade split
Both THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE and BASTARD NOISE have worked closely together to make this "awareness-based" audio-violent offering the sickest it can be. T.E.B. offer up one mammoth 14 + minute composition "DEUTERONOMY" that crosses all spectrums of hardcore/true crucial punk madness and the infusion of additional unconventional sound elements, never once pausing their critical attack on the only living species that deserves(and has earned) its' own extinction. CARROLL,EDGAR,KING and NOLAN exemplify extreme crushing expression without any doubt. BASTARD NOISE' back from the conventional dead(with WOOD playing his "FOUR STEEL GIRDERS" for the first time in over eleven years !) deal the listener four tracks of sick and brutal modern hardcore with progressive tendencies that will cause the mind to wander into worlds yet ventured.
BN's line-up includes W.T. NELSON on custom-built electronics, DANNY WALKER (INTRONAUT/MURDER CONSTRUCT) on drums/percussion and WOOD on "FOUR STEEL GIRDERS" ,lyrics and vocals. The first "music -based" release for BN since its' inception in 1991 !! Tracks include "FALLEN SPECIES" / "MOVEMENT TWO" / "MUTANT WORLD OF SHAME" and "MANPHIBIAN" - these tracks mark BN's rebirth and show that bass and drums do not necessarily require guitar to achieve total brutality !! Package will include a special poster and all lyrics plus horrifying graphics. "THE RED LIST is for those who have waited long and hard for a split to truly matter ...

Extortion "Loose Screws" 10"
Arguably the most potent musical force Australian music has ever seen, Perth’s Extortion are set to launch a fresh attack on the senses with their latest balls-out thrash incursion, Loose Screws. A 12-track effort set for a January 8 release on both CDEP and 10” vinyl formats, Loose Screws pushes Extortion’s well-established power-violence sound to face-ripping new extremes. Recorded across three continents, the basic tracks were laid down at Polymorph Studios in Oakland, California by producer Dan Rathbun (Tragedy, His Hero is Gone, Talk Is Poison), then completed vocals in Perth at Bergerk! Studios, assisted by long-time producer Al Smith (Blkout!, Jaws, Clever Species). As one final flourish, UK-based celebrity Extortion fan, Barney Greenway of Napalm Death, added his unmistakable roar to the aptly titled “Grind To A Halt”. (a split release with RESIST records Australia) 80 copies available thru deep six on color wax mailorder and also available thru RESIST records on color wax)
