    FLASHPOINT To Release Demo on Distro-y

    FLASHPOINT To Release Demo on Distro-y

    FLASHPOINT is a NWOTHM project based out of Dublin, Ireland, drawing influence from various heavy metal bands such as Mercyful Fate, Spellcaster and Iron Maiden to name just a few, but with an aim to retain a harder crossover/punk edge to the music.

    With members all previously playing in Irish hardcore bands such as Hollow Truth, Held Back, Last Wishesand Solar Messiah, there was a conscious decision to pursue a more traditional heavy metal sound with this project. They aim to hit the ground running with the debut release, “Swing At The King”, and dive head first into the gigging and touring circuit around Europe.

    Teaming up with Ireland’s Distro-y Records and Powertrip Records out of Germany, the debut offering with be released in the near future on cassette tape with some alternate artwork and merch bundles. To back up this release there is plans to do a run of shows in the UK as well as a European tour for 2018.

    Recorded and mixed by Shaun Cadogan of Last Light Recordings in Sun Studio, Dublin. Mastered by Philip Henning. Artwork & logo design by Ciarán Nolan

    MARÉE NOIRE - DEMO EP Out Now

    MARÉE NOIRE - DEMO EP Out Now

    Having previously been self-released by the band MARÉE NOIRE - DEMO has made its way on to wax as a 7" EP. The 4 track 7" is out now on Distro-y Records with two versions of Frances newest D-beat hardcore quartet EP one cover includes a dark and realistic drawing by Barcelona based tattoo artist Sztuka Wojny and the second limited run cover is a homage to Totalitär ‎– Sin Egen Motståndare artwork placing an image of French president Macron brandishing a gun to his head. Here are 4 songs of implacable d-beat hardcore emergency. These guys music and words sound like a response to an oppressive and crushing world, a frank and direct blow. MAREE NOIRE is a new band made by some (still young) punk veterans who played in an impressive number of bands and still play in bands like Better Off Dead, Bleakness and Syndrome 81 just to name a few. Expect some disillusioned vitriolic lyrics in French. It's another Destructure release recorded and mixed at the great Swan Sound studio by Guillaume Doussaud. Out Now on Destructure Records, Donnez-Moi Du Feu, Distro-Y Records, Offside Records

    Karate Klub Dublin Punk Comp LP

    It is with great honour that we get to help in the release of a benefit LP of the Karate Klub. In the heart of the city of Dublin across an alley from Bohemians FC (which is also a venue for many punk gigs) there is an unassuming a metal door which is the Karate Klub home/practice space to many of Dublin's punk & hardcore bands like Rats Blood, Disguise, Surge, Grit, Sissy, Strong Boys.....and the list goes on.  Some of you may have caught the spread in MRR issue 418 (Mar 2018) all about the Karate Klub you can read it here please also pick up a copy of MRR here, which will inform you so much more than I ever could also anyone looking to check out some of the bands from the Karate Klub check out Equalizing Distort podcast from 11th March here.

    As it is a Comp LP which will give a lot of cool bands a chance to get on to some wax it is also a benefit LP to keep spaces like the Karate Klub up and running and Distro-y will donate all proceeds raised from the record to the Karate Klub so make sure you pick up a copy!!

    I will bring you band listing and more details on the vinyl details soon but for now get excited as this LP should be out later this year. While you read the article from MRR I guess an appropriate song to listen to is Rats Blood - Dublins Got HC
