So about a month ago i was talking to my dodgy moustache sporting longhair Joel Costa, who apart from grinding around Porto, also runs a DIY Label(Check it! Degradagem).We got to talking about fast bands and was their any newer bands worth listening to around where he is from. Instantly he says, "oh im working with this band, they are really cool, give me a minute". In Joel's world a minute trancends into a time warp in which he likes to stroke his, rather pathetic, attempt at a beard while listening to Goregrind. He kept me waiting there a bit, while the beard stroking commenced, then a couple of tracks by a band called Revengeance filled up my email inbox. With nothing better to do i hit play, and my jaw hit the floor! Probably one of the best female/male fronted fast hardcore bands ive heard recently, if ever. Im guessing people are no doubt getting sick of bands labelled as "fastcore", when infact they arent fast whatsoever, i know i am, haha. But these definitely fall into the fast hardcore genre if you need to describe these lot to someone, blasts, slower bits and short songs to boot! The thing which grabbed me about these lot is the female vocals, Ines i think her name is, well the other vocalist is labeled as "Fat Bastard" and she doesnt look fat. Hahaha. She has a really cool voice, no screaming, just really clean and "nice", how stupid does that sound? im god awful at decribing stuff like this, so just listen to her. Her pronouciation of the lyrics are really funny, not in a patronising way, just fits so well in what they do! Backed by the bloke, im guessing Fat Bastard?, doing a mix of "ham sandwich"(Stolen from Drew, if you ever read this!)/gruff/shouting vocals. No doubt the music will remind people of this or that band, but so what, the combination of there parts make these a really exciting band to check out and watch to see how they progress.

Revengeance's Demo " "John Q. Citizen" CS and split CS with Joel's band, Tinnitus - Brutal Flutecoregrind!, will be out soon through his label Degradagem, make sure you add them or at least keep and eye out for the releases.  Revengeance have started putting up promo tracks, which can be found on there Revengeance, or there Soundcloud. The 2 tracks i have arent up on the site yet, but id go out on a limb and say the 2 tracks ive got, Nihilistic Circus Parade and Sweatsuit Hardcore, are better than the tracks already uploaded! "FUCK WHERE YOUR FROM, NO ONE CARES!"

OWL - "Stone Loner" 7" Single. Out Now!

Next up, OWL from San Francisco Bay. I came across these guys when i picked up a demo from Tankcrimes Distro, i think, or maybe it was To Live a Lie. Anyways i picked it up as it had Clint from A.N.S. behind the kit, as a fan of these guys i thought id check out what else he was up to. What it ended up being was a 5 tracks demo crammed with some insane guitar riffage, backed up by a tight, but some what out of control rythm section. It is an absolute awesome mash up of 70's inspired rock and raging hardcore punk, i think the punk influence is where is starts to lose control, but it works so well. Just check out the incredible 12 minute Glaurung, you can hear the entire demo here , and its still available from the band here .

Anyways once i heard this, i instantly shot them a mail decrying my love for all things riff and asked if they wanted to work together. After a couple of emails back and forth we agreeded on doing a 7" ep, which turned into the "Stoner Loner Single". As of Feb 17th 2012, this is out for the world to gaze upon and have there ears destroyed in a Zeppellin-esque journey into the realm of galactic terror!

The 7" can be bought from the band here also!
