Brain Damage

Brain Damage(also known as The Damage) was a Hardcore Punk band from Jacksonville, formed in the winter of 2004. After a demo the band released a 7" in 2005 that was put out by Wake Up And Live Records, which was followed by a small tour with the band I Accuse!. Sometime later the guys were plagued by member changes, and had a name change from Brain Damage to "The Damage". Under the new name they took a more rougher hardcore sound than they previously had. In 2006 they signed to Cabal Records and were planing on releasing an EP called "Feed The Vultures" but they broke up before it was ever released or finished as far as I know. I got to see this band a few times, one of which was out here in Daytona with Kids Like Us and The Neon Hookers and I really got into these guys quick, they ruled live so I got pretty bummed once they disappeared. They had a reunion in 2011 for a big New Year's Eve event called "Hardcore 4 Hardcore" out in Jax under the Brain Damage name. This download includes the Demo, Ack! Ack! 7" and some songs from the unreleased EP.

Submitted by the dudes from Throatruiner records:

Comity is an extreme rock'n roll band from Paris formed in 1996. "Fear of musical routine. Will of pushing back boundaries with a classical rock instrumentation. Astounding violence executed in one of the most distinguished ways. Incredibly meticulous attention to detail. With so much selection criteria, very few could pull this all off whilst harnessing a consistent sound. And if there’s one band that has always sweat blood and water to access there in the midst of bands like Starkweather, Breach, Today Is The Day, Neurosis, Oxbow and Converge, then it’s without a doubt COMITY. A more than deserved sacrament after fifteen years of a spanner thrown in the works, between disillusions, line-up & record label issues amongst many other aborted plans - going as far as making them momentarily give up in 2007. COMITY have behind them fifteen years of noise and incredible live performances (with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Cave In, Today Is The Day…) not to mention a discography with a fascinating progression which propel the band to the rank of one of France’s biggest glories at the release of their second album “As Everything Is A Tragedy” in 2006. “The Journey Is Over Now”, their first full-length in five years, shows a band more ruthless and musically ambitious than ever before. Four tracks delivering 52 minutes of an oppressive but finely worked chaos : a maze of winding riffs and unique melodies."

Shed For You

Shed For You were a Melodic/Chaotic Grindcore band from Tarpon Springs Florida formed in 2002. I got to see these dudes and talk to them many times during their existance and they seemed to be really be into playing out here in Daytona. I still have good memories of talking about I Have Dreams with bassist Pat or trying to get them to play the song they always hated playing "Your Music Is Bad and You Should Feel Bad". They started out as a school project for vocalist Brett along with Roger, & shortly after Chris joined on guitar. This was when the Exhibit A demo was made but was never released. They played a few shows as a 3 peice until Pat asked them to play bass, he had never played before being in the band. They recorded their first full length Exhibit B in 2003, which was followed by more Shows. In 2004 They recorded their 2nd full length Exhibit C and did a short tour with Silence After Tragedy. From 2004 to 2005 they toured the east coast of the United States a few times playing shows with Me & Him Call it Us, and Mass Movementnt of the Moth. At this time they put out an "unofficial" 10 song version of the Exhibit D release. Later in 2005 they released Exhibit E on Cassette & Mini CDs. Shed For You then toured a few times in 2006 (which included a set they played at the Central Connecticut State University campus radio station, that was recorded & later released on the Discography, that I can't find), they also re-recorded 4 songs off the Unofficial Exhibit D and made it into a 7". They were going to Make an Exhibit F but It never came to be and the band played their final show in December 16, 2007 at the Skate-park of Tampa in Tampa. In June 2008 they got back together for one last time (minus brett) to play the last show of their long time friends Now Soldiers at the 688 Skate-park in Clearwater. The guys in Shed For You also ran Sherwood Records which released all their stuff. After breaking up Chris went on to be in the band Devout, & I recall Roger did some experimental solo project but the name escapes me. The Download includes Exhibits B,C,D,& E I'm still looking for A, & the unofficial D if anyone out there has it.

Shed for you was :

12 Tone System

12 Tone System were a New-Wave Punk band from Philadelphia formed in 1996 I believe that mixed vintage synthesizers with fluid pop sounds. I'm pretty happy to be sharing this post, as that I've been trying to track this stuff down for a few years now. I found the demo tape being sold by the dudes from Deathwish Inc on an ebay auction and then months later I found the 7" as well. Eric Wareheim and Tim Heidecker (Tom goes to the mayor, Tim & Eric awesome show great job!) were both members of this band. Eric was one of the founding members and Tim joined up later on down the line. They released a self released demo tape and an EP called "Soundtrack to Synthetic Music" on Keystone and Ember Records in 1997. I don't think anything else was released. Members of Ink & Dagger, I Am Heaven, Elements Of Need, Sola, & The Tim Heidecker Masterpiece. This is most likely the first time this has been released online to my knowledge who knows.

Nepenthe (cali)

Nepenthe is a noisy black metal side project of certain bands from California formed in 2011. Rough blown out lo-fi black metal mixed with synth interludes. This is not to be confused with the band from the 90's that later changed their name to Ligeia. They disappeared as soon as they had arrived with only a self-released 8 song demo tape limited to a mere 30 copies that quickly sold out. There was suppose to be a 2nd tape called "turn to dust" but so far a psychical copy has yet to see the light of day minus a few songs from the bandcamp page that is included in the download.

1905 was a Politacal Screamo band from Washington D.C. that formed in 2000. Their lyrics address the politics of everyday lives and how the individual plays an important part in the greater scheme of things. These lyrics are conveyed through both female and male vocals. The vocals change between singing and screaming. The music has a distinct feel to it and there is definitely a great deal of emotion poured into it. They toured the United States three times: for six weeks in 2002, five weeks in 2003, and seven and a half weeks in 2004. After the last tour problems with personal issues in the band took their tole, but they held together for two more years before breaking up in 2006. 1905 released a 4 song demo CD, a full length CD/LP called "Voice" on Exotic Fever Records & Amor y Lucha Records and a Split seven inch with Amanda Woodward on Stonehenge Records. They wrote another albums worth of songs but never recorded them and also have 3 more recorded songs but they have never seen the light of day. members of Birds and Wires, Fighting Dogs, Non Grata, & The Scram.

As We Draw, Euglena, Hexis Split

New release from the label Throatruiner Records, these guys submit some good stuff to me. This time we have a three way split between As We Draw, Euglena, and Hexis. Descriptions straight from Throatruiner:

AS WE DRAW: Nearly one year after their first album "Lines Breaking Circles" which propel them into the rank of the biggest european outsiders of their style, the young princes of french post-metal are back to punish everybody once again with these two tracks, more muscular and tighter than never before. Five-stars songwriting, outrageous emotional power and contagious anxiety, this is caviar filled with cyanide. For fans of : Breach, Ken Mode, Old Man Gloom

AWD is:
Amaury - Drums/Backing Vocals/Artworks
Pierre - Bass/Backing Vocals/Lyrics
Quentin - Guitar/Vocals/lyrics

EUGLENA: They are coming from the red nation but could have come from the pink city; the hardcore from russians Euglena is as dissonant as buzzing, not so far from the know-how of toulousians I Pilot Daemon & Plebeian Grandstand. These three tracks are a good session of revigorating apnea, slower and dirtier continuation of their previous EP "An Anxious Surface". For fans of : Buried Inside, Plebeian Grandstand, Botch

Euglena is:
Noek - vocals & lyrics
Sanya - guitar
Ilyas - bass
Iga - drums

HEXIS: A Danish butchery - hardcore, black metal, sludge and blast beats thrown in the most epic and brutal way. If their first eponymous EP has already teared a strip off some people, "Crux" and "Nex" are following the going-over by stepping up their urgency and helped by a nauseous as-fuck sound. For fans of : Celeste, Crowpath, Blut Aus Nord

Hexis is:
Filip - Vocals
Christian - Guitar
Tobias - Bass
Simon - Drums
