HC4L059 OUT of PHASE/KALT - Split tape (2020)

On their second EP, Out of Phase keep to their furious crust-/grind-/sludge-base whilst turning to a darker and even more twisted sound. 7 songs about loss, the society of the spectacle and trying not to completely lose sense in this world.

KALT could be labelled the evil twin of the screamo band KŸHL (, featuring their former singer Saerch on drums and drummer Hans on guitar, both sharing vocal duties. Within a few days prior to their first gig in Krakow (where they were supposed to play with KŸHL), the two put together 30 minutes of screams, desperation, fury, melancholy - a meditation about living, loving and dying.
This thing was recorded on one of their few shows.

HC4L040 Punch On! - Harm Passes Forward EP 12" (2020)

PUNCH ON is a two piece noise engine from Bristol, UK, throwing whatever* bit of heavy music at the wall, and shredding through what sticks. Formed in December 2016.

Mostly screamo/emo to be fair, but some crust/d-beat, black metal, ambient/drone, metalcore, hardcore, noise rock, pop, and whatever else is going on in Bristol thrown in for measure.

The new emotionally resonant EP from Bristol based post hardcore / screamo duo PUNCH ON! is a reflection on a horrible circumstance from two years ago, where a close friend of the band’s guitarist Sean Addicott and member of the Bristol music scene, was outed as an abuser. Many people came forward and reported their experiences, and this person fled the country, despite promising accountability. PUNCH ON! are using this record to raise funds for Solidarity NOT Silence, an amazing organisation that its fundraising to go to court over a similar situation. They will be touring the EP from the 23rd to the 30th of November, where they will be ensuring someone from a Local Rape & Sexual Assault organisation is present, to demonstrate all of the amazing work they do.

Vinyl, 12", 33 ⅓ RPM, Black, Single Sided, EP

'Harm Passes Forward' is a fundraiser for Solidarity not Silence.
