1 min read

Our 2017 roundups are claimed by both new and more seasoned artists and this newest round from Andrew Kline (WAR Records, STRIFE) proves that some recurring titles stole the show, but thankfully there’s always a lot of room for great new additions worth repeated spins and mentioning in the end of the year! Here are Andy’s top 5 Hardcore records, top 5 Non-Hardcore records, and top 5 Bandcamp finds! Bon appétit!

2017 was a busy year for the label. We started with a bang in January with the release of Limitless” from Reality Slap from Portugal. We released No Mercy” from Shadow of Doubt in June, and How Much is Enough” from Miracle Drug in July. We rounded out the year with the recently released live album/DVD from Strife, “Live at The Troubadour.”

We are hoping for an even busier 2018, and the first release that we have is a 6 song 7″ called “Moment of Truth” from Los Angeles Straight Edge band, Berthold City! Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date with all of our upcoming releases!
