Now THIS is punk rock! Male and female vocals take turns on catchy street-punk fueled rock from this Swedish group. Label: Instigate Rehk'dz.
|Inside Recess - s/t CD|
Inside Recess comes from either someplace outside of Cincinnati, or someplace just outside of Hell. I can't really tell. What I can tell is that they play a hodge-podge (in a good way) of hardcore, grind, and metal, with all the screaming AND growling vocals you could need. One thing is certain: they always deliver on their promise of "Metal on Metal Action." Label: self-released.

Texas hardcore done right. Manchurian Candidates has releases on 625 and Prank! as well, but this one certainly rules the school. Label: TFC Records
|Meataxe - Straightedge Thrash Violence CD|
Well, the title probably tells you as much as you really need to know about this band, except for the fact that they have a wicked, sorta immature, sense of humor on these 17 songs. From Australia. Label: Snapshot Records.
|Miles Between Us - s/t 7" EP|
I'll let Short, Fast & Loud tell you about this one: "A new straight edge unit out of Canada and we are much impressed! Chugging along at a fast tempo, this stuff is just pissed off enough to warrant comparisons to Brotherhood or Chain of Strength. The anger this band conjures up makes this stand above a slew of mediocre sXe outfits." Label: Blatherskyte Records.

Germany's Mindgrab brings to mind favorable comparisons to Hatebreed and Merauder with their sing-along vocals over crunching metallic riffs. Label: Mad Mob Records
