Man Is The Bastard Backwards Species (Reissue EP)
In 1992 when MAN IS THE BASTARD was a very young "skull child", not many people cared about the band shy of a very few individuals and one or two labels
After three releases (the CHARRED REMAINS/PINK TURDS IN SPACE split 7" e.p., the AUNT MARY "Gnu"/CHARRED REMAINS a.k.a. MAN IS THE BASTARD The Power Of Hash split 7" e.p., and the Sum Of The Men full length 12" L.P.), the band agreed to do a new 7" e.p. release with German label ECOCENTRIC RECORDS and delivered Backwards Species, a seven song "skull powder-keg" of exploratory, progressive aggression that is still heralded today as one of M.I.T.B.'s most memorable sound offerings. Packed with complex dual bass guitars, frying pan six string axe work, incredibly diverse drumming and loyal, heartfelt lyrics/vocals, the record was nearly gone immediately after its release! It has now been re-issued under "skull authority" by DEEP SIX RECORDS in all its awareness based glory. Standout tracks are "ETHER RAG", "KORO TREATMENT" and "STACKS" among four others. Love is power! Courtesy is king! Take THAT to the bank!!!!

Fetus Eaters Manticore (LP)
The newest release from Fetus Eaters contains 28 songs that keep in the tradition of the Vomitcore style that they pioneered 17 years ago, as well as furthering the use of "core" in the title
The incoherent gibbering lyrics coupled with sarcasm, blast beats, inside jokes, spastic screaming, razor sharp riffing, neologism/word smithing, genre blending, and their trademark use of noise, toys, and saxophones continue the aural assault that they mastered on their first 2 demos. This onslaught continued to expand over the next several years with 5 full length records, 9 split releases, appearances on numerous comps, and tours in U.S., Mexico, Japan, and Australia.
Manticore includes the songs Haze (about pornstar Jenna Haze), 750 Mg's about the use of prescription narcotics, You Hate I about being stuck in an abusive relationship, and March Madness, which could be about that stupid sport basket ball, or a sale at Ross or TJ Max.
Released on blood red and black swirled vinyl. Full color cover and insert.

Man Is The Bastard / Bleeding Rectum (Split LP)
This classic 1992 release and 2013 reissue features one of the most underrated bands of all time within the H.C./punk underground: Bleeding Rectum. Hailing from Belfast, N. Ireland, Bleeding Rectum has core members from Pink Turds In Space (bass, drums, and guitar minus Anne on vocals) and a second, devastating, teenage lead guitarist, Marty, plus sickeningly, evil vocalist Roy (also known for his recent drumming for Amebix), Bleeding Rectum are the real deal in true, rogue, blitzing power, and form. They define hardcore punk with their unduplicatable musicianship and total system-hating lyrical concepts. By todays' standards, Bleeding Rectum slays the competition with the highest levels of rebellion and musical prowess. A must listen!
On their fifth release, Man Is The Bastard explore new liberating and socially aware territories though the classic line-up of Barnes (guitar/noise), Connell (drums), Kenyon (bass/vocals/lyrics) and Wood (bass/vocals/lyrics).
Tracks range in length from under one minute (Idget Child) to over eight minutes (Infibulation)
M.I.T.B.'s dual bass and drums nucleus, paired with the utter genius of Barnes' home made "caveman electronics", hold their own easily within the grooves of this platter and the Kenyon/Wood dual vocal compositions raise the bar to take hardcore to a new progressive level of writing. This is the height of the early stages of M.I.T.B. and tracks like Kai Lai, Sun of Thug, and Man Is The Bastard define the bands' passion beyond expectations.

This release is full of burning musical hooks, blazing drumming (Rich is a true skull on these sessions), "Four Steel Girders" soaked in nitroglycerin, sick electronics / keys and vocalist Artz' most powerful and convincing vocals ever. The Hoak Sessions, as they are aptly titled, are bound to pull in those seeking the ultimate in "skull power" and musical dexterity. The phenomenal Mitchell Luna (formerly of blitzing grind unit Maruta) makes a guest appearance and shares vocals with Artz on one track too! Again, produced by Michael Rozon (The Red List, A Culture of Monsters, and Skulldozer), The Hoak Sessions were created out of the endless passion that drives "the skull" and is dedicated to our amazing and loyal followers.

For years we had been planning to record a definitive full length follow up with different songs than the previous EP, but we finally made it - only16 years later. We chose a selection of the Italian punk/hardcore/thrash bands that influenced us most in the early days and helped forge our sound, and it's also our homage to those whose members have become our friends throughout the years." The cover art of the album was drawn by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Voetsek, Violator, Deadfall, Cannabis Corpse, etc).

Weekend Nachos Worthless (LP)
Worthless, the latest full-length recorded effort from this Chicago quartet, is... a face-peeler. Opening track Hometown Hero sets the bar high in hurry with a pummeling combination of Discharge-esque riffs that explode into grindcore blasts beats and vocal attacks that are as poignant as ever. Here we see singer Snyder stepping up the pace with rants that drive forward at 200 mph, ready to blow you over with a guitar presence that is thicker than sea-shit. This is extreme music for extreme musicians and those who have an ear for detail.
The awesomely thick, but not overly-engineered sounding production really puts this LP over-the-top. As someone who is inundated with new releases every week, this authenticity of sound within Worthless is immediately engaging and sustaining.
If I had to nitpick, I’d shave off some of the slower droning movements. I’ve never been one for sludge, I’m just too ADD. So for me, the tracks that keep it moving are the standouts including, Hometown Hero, Frostbitten, Dubviolence, and You Could Exist Tomorrow. All-in-all, solid release. Snag it.

This Comp Kills Fascists Volume 2 (Double LP)
Vol. 2 packs 50 percent more grind and power violence than its predecessor and it’s still a vital link to a rash of new bands worth hearing.
The belles of the ball are easily Noisear who are at once speedy and engrossing, finally stepping out from under the shadow of Discordance Axis to become something that is at once technical, cathartic, and wholly their own.
Triac are also raucous and rough and tumble while finally hearing Hummingbird of Death’s lofi ruckus, I get what everyone’s been raving about. Give Slovakian's Idiots Parade a few more years and I could see them gunning for Suffering Mind’s championship belt. Drugs of Faith rehash An Ode to Those Unwed from their self titled EP and give us a new track, Loss of Credibility, that bodes well for their pending full length.
Thrash masters Population Reduction should roam the streets of Tinseltown forcibly tattooing the title of Real Zombies Don’t Run on assorted Hollywood execs’ noggin. Marion Barry sound like Apartment 213 clones and Apartment 213 sound a lot like Apartment 213 as well. Septic Surge’s noise holocaust is exquisite, combining classic Agoraphobic Nosebleed with weed drenched Man is the Bastard.

Defeatist/Triac/ASRA 3 Way Split (LP)
Featuring former members of Kalibas and Anodyne, Defeatist (NYC) deliver a devastating blend of tech-grind with intricately woven guitarwork mixed with a crushing “Melvins on warp speed”-style rhythm section. Baltimore's Triac juxtapose classic Amphetamine Reptile muscle with modern powerviolence, resulting in a crushing fusion of raw grind and noise-rock forcefulness punctuated by massive drumming & filthy bass. NYC's ASRA, sounding like Autopsy re-envisioned by mid-90s powerviolence-obsessed thugs, offer up crushing tracks filled with ever-shifting drum patterns, innovative thrash-influenced riffs, and varied vocal patterns. This 3-way split will be ASRA's final offering on unreleased material. Mailorder 100 copies on grey wax.

Landmine Marathon Sovereign Descent (LP)
After witnessing Landmine Marathon absolutely destroy at the Los Angeles Murder Fest in 2009, we had no choice but to put this release out on vinyl. Originally released on CD through Prosthetic Records, we needed to bring this out on the format that matters most to us here at Deep Six. A grinding, and even at times, sludging masterpiece of mayhem!

Weekend Nachos Unforgivable (LP)
The 2nd full-length release from Chicago's Weekend Nachos.
