ISOTOPE-"Final Wind of Mercy" Demo
This band from Oakland California play really driving Japanese influenced hardcore. They are really proficient musically and are definitely a band to check out. This came out in 2014 but it's a great demo so why not put it up.

PROTESTER-"Paincave Sessions" Demo
This band from Washington DC play straight up hardcore in the same style as a lot of Boston bands these days. Really straight forward and cool. This band is touring Europe this summer 2016 so check them out.
This band from Oakland, Cali are just getting better and better. They have a sound that reminds me of AGNOSTIC FRONT (Victim in Pain era), and SICK PLEASURE, two bands that are high on my list of best HC bands of all time. Give this a listen or two all the way through. Best songs come later..
COMMANDO-"Come Out Fighting" Demo
Got this demo from Brandon Ferrell the drummer of GOVERNMENT WARNING which was one of the most memorable bands from early oughts. COMMANDO definitely doesn't disappoint. This fits right in with a band like REMNANTS from S.F. with it's heavy midwest hardcore vibe. I can't help but think of EFFFIGIES, ARTICLES OF FAITH, and NYC's KRAUT has to be an influence. This is perfect for my taste as I'm sure most punks who grew up on 80's USHC will dig it too.
REMNANTS-"Ruff Mix" Demo
This band is from San Francisco, CA. and shares members with RULETA RUSA and COLD BEAT two great bands with plenty of material to sink your teeth into. The sound of REMNANTS is old school 80'a hardcore in the vein of ARTICLES OF FAITH, NAKED RAYGUN, I even hear some early GG & THE JABBERS. Great demo, great live band.
MACHINE GUN-"The World is Sick" Demo
This is a new Philly band. Reminds me of lots of good non-specific USHC bands. Actually I'm leaning towards early 2000's NYC band WRECKAGE who in this guys opinion were a top band. Check this out.
