Finally I got some time for an update which is almost outdated already. This summer was really busy and not too easy to handle. Therefore I apologise if anyone of you had inconveniences with receiving orders late. Thanks to everyone for their patience. I try to keep up with incoming orders as quick as I can.
As you might have heard five new releases came out in the last few weeks. It's the ADOLF HILTER KLAN - Demo 7", the SURF NAZIS MUST DIE - Demo 7", NATURAL LAW - Spring Trash 7", the WICCANS - Field II LP and the BLANK PAGES - Blind Faith 7". Some of them been pressed on colored vinyl. Check here for pressing details. Some of it is already sold out, some is not. If you want to check out their sound head to our Bandcamp page.
Up next on the plate are a split 7" between ANNOTATION and BENT CROSS which has been sent off to the plant and a new OVERPOWER - tba 7" which just has been mastered! Keep your eyes peeled for more holy crap like a new KREMLIN 12"!!!

This is a new Toronto outfit. Five recent slaps recorded after their two devastating demo tapes from last year. Think parts less distorted early DISCHARGE, parts TERVEET KÄDET with hints of Japanese noisecore mongers THE SEXUAL or early SODOM as heard on ADK Omnibus. This band comprises MOLESTED YOUTH and SCHOOL JERKS personnel! I uploaded the record on my new Bandcamp. 600 copies were pressed, 100 on white wax.
At the plant are SURF NAZIS MUST DIE - Demo 7", ADOLF HITLER KLAN - Demo 7" and NATURAL LAW - Spring Trash 7". Test presses are expected real soon!

Punishing debut LP by one of the best new hardcore bands to come around in years! An unrelenting, dark, and ultimately raging record that combines the brutal edge of a DIE KREUZEN mixed with the hardcore melody of a ARTICLES OF FAITH and the fierce vocals of early POISON IDEA. Yet this band sounds new and fresh and not attempting to ape past hardcore genres.
SICKOIDS have an incredible driving sound that is harsh but also has a intense controlled chaos. The rhythms are fierce and hit with procession and are brilliantly matched with the chorus style guitar that hits like a knife in the chest. This recording just pounds away at the listener and barely gives you a chance to breath. Tracks like "My Curse", "Psychic Cold War", "Bleached Bodies" jump off the record as each song blurs into the next. This dynamic three piece is made up of Vince and Rob from WITCH HUNT and Eric from GOVERNMENT WARNING and DIRECT CONTROL. SICKOIDS are an amazing live band so do not miss your chance to see these guys and pick this record up! Poster included! US residents order from RESIDUE RECORDS please! White wax limited to 100 copies. An European Tour is planned as well!
In other news there's an exclusive, rad new SHORT FUSE shirt design available at limited numbers. The artwork is top-notch as is the quality of the shirt. It will be available in a week or so, but can be preordered at the webstore.

The fantastic CRUSADES - The Sun Is Down And The Night Is Riding In 12" has finally seen the light of day. It was joint-released with our friends at SABOTAGE RECORDS and comprises ten anticlerical yet satanic Pop Punk pearls. Limited to 500 copies. Members of SEDATIVES, CREEPS and STEVE ADAMYK BAND. Catch them on tour in Europe in 2012!
The debut 7" of NY's BRAIN SLUG entitled "Distort New York" is also finally out now! It has five all new tracks of 80's Boston and NY-infected Hardcore Punk. Pardon me for the delay in delivery, but we had issues concerning the reproduction of the sleeves.
Also the DEAN DIRG - Verpisst 12" is back in stock at last!

After a small break we're back with three new sick releases. HWR-024 NUKKHAMMER - End It All Now 12" has been delayed for some time but finally made it. I'm afraid the band copies will not make it to CHAOS ON TEJAS FEST though.
Both incredible tapes from 2008 and 2009 put on one full 12". Remastered by Jack Control of SEVERED HEAD OF STATE for complete ear terror treatment. Expect a mind-blowing mixture of classic Japanese Hardcore and burly Raw Punk. Highly recommended! All 500 copies come with ultra-heavy silkscreened jackets and two-sided lyric sheet. 100 on red vinyl.
Before that we had the HWR-027 GOLDUST/CURBBITE - Split 7". Black-soaked, heavy Hardcore in the vein of early INTEGRITY or PULLING TEETH vs. ugly, brutal, down-tuned Stop-and-Go-Hardcore influenced by TRASH TALK, CROSSED OUT and SIEGE. Crushing violence from both German powerhouses. Total illness! Lim. to 500 copies. 300 on black, 100 on red and 100 on clear vinyl.
A couple of days ago HWR-029 ANNOTATION - s/t 7" came in: Ill, new 6-track 7" follow up to their 2007 debut. They pretty much changed their style into more BL'AST, MY WAR-era BLACK FLAG and ANNIHILATION TIME adding a straight, youthful twist rarely heard today. One of the few promising, outstanding bands in Germany right now. 500 copies, 100 on green colored vinyl. All on 4-color heavy cardstock board to the boot.
Order all new releases here: http://www.hardware-records.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1
As for the older stuff the VOGUE - Pompshit 12" will be repressed really soon along with HWR-030 OMEGAS - Blasts Of Luncay 12". These Canadian fuckheads based in Montreal crank out some of the best current Hardcore Punk. The tests already arrived and sound rad so I expect this to be available around June 15th. I put these on the shop as well, be quick if you need to grab a colored one. They won't last long. You can get a glimse on their stuff here: http://omegas.bandcamp.com/
The first batch of the DEAN DIRG - Verpisst 12" is almost sold out. I'm down to the last 10 copies, but found a couple of orange colored ones of people who never paid available in the store.
HWR-025 VOGUE - Pompshit 12" repress (June 15th)
HWR-030 OMEGAS - Blasts Of Lunacy 12" (June 15th)
HWR-031 CRUSADES - 12" (July)

The German Post is changing postage rates again. As for international orders overseas shipping has been decreased a lot. Shipping an LP is even cheaper than it is inside Germany now. Amazing but pretty good news if you ask me. On the other hand EU shipping has been increased marginally. Check the table below for more specific info.
Have a great 2011, thanks a lot to everyone who I worked with or ordered stuff from me in the past. Stay in touch and keep your eyes peeled for new stuff on Hardware Records!
