SOME STUFFS: Expander hi-pro their new EP


Austin, Texas band Expanded had recorded a 6-song EP and pressed it up themselves, only made 25 copies on cassette and decided to see if a few copies would sell. It did and Caligari Records decided to give the EP new pressing done on professional tapes and nice looking covers. Only 150 copies were made on cassette but if you are someone who loves thrash and hardcore with blasts of crust and punk, you’ll really enjoy what these guys have to offer. Stream the EP above and if you want to go for the cassette, you can find out how to order by heading to Caligari Records.

RECORD CRACK: Vinyl reissues on their way for The Dillinger Escape Plan


As fans wait for new music from The Dillinger Escape Plan, you’ll now get a chance to purchase their first three albums on vinyl, as they’re being pressed up in time for the holiday season. Relapse Records will be issuing out records for 1999’s Calculating Infinity, 2004’s Miss Machine, and 2007’s Ire Works. The original vinyl pressings have been long out of print so it’s a chance to get them if you didn’t already but not only that, they are deluxe reissues, meaning each album will have extras that were not on the original pressing. You may pre-order one of them or all three, directly from Relapse.

VIDEO: Killer Be Killed’s “Snakes Of Jehovah”


Released this past spring is the self-titled debut album on Nuclear Blast by Killer Be Killed, and from it is a song you are sure to enjoy for those who are deep fans of Dillinger Escape Plan and Soulfly, which makes sense since the band consists of Greg Puciato (vocals, guitar), Max Cavalera (vocals, guitar), Dave Elitch (drums, percussion) and Troy Sanders (vocals, bass guitar). If you’ve heard of them but never heard their actual music, or if the brief comparison is to your liking, then watch “Snakes Of Jehovah”.

RECORD CRACK: Gillian Carter to release a new 7″ EP

 photo GillianCarter_cover_zpsd776e946.jpg
Gillian Carter: stereotypically the name may bring up thoughts of a country or folk singer but in this case, Gillian Carter isn’t a single person or even a lady. Gillian Carter are a Floridian band who perform in the genre of screamo, and they will be releasing an 8-song 7″ on The Ghost Is Clear Records. Apparently the eight songs were previously recorded for split efforts that didn’t pan out for the parties involved, thus the title Songs For Splits, which isn’t a reference for songs made for gymnastic routines. Now you can hear them all assembled on one place. Here’s the official track listing:

1. I Went Down With The Ship (To Save My Family)
2. When The Music Stopped
3. The Storm
4. The Letter And The Response
5. The Calm
