American straight edge metalcore hardcore punk band from Boston, Massachusetts.
In their few years of existence Embrace Today evolved from a commendable youth crew hardcore inspired unit into one of the hardest hitting monsters in contemporary Boston hardcore.
"Soldiers" was their first release on Deathwish. Recorded by Kurt Ballou, "Soldiers" is a full throttle hardcore album, burning with the pure discontent that the underground cultivates.
They are often considered the heir apparent to Syracuse, Straight Edge juggernauts Earth Crisis.
IRR014 - Five Minute Major
When It Ends
5 Minute Major comes from Astoria, Queens, in NY. The place that already gave us bands like Cold Front, Crown Of Thornz. Since people always need references I guess the band represent perfectly where they come from, the music is hit real hard but with great guitar melodies that make them special. That should give you an idea of the great band 5 Minute Major is.
IRR015 - Fury Of Five
Telling It Like It Is !!!!!!
A title track never have been more explicit than this one. This record capture the essence of what was FURY OF FIVE before they hit the world on tour and released 3 devastating full albums on labels like Gain Ground, Kingfisher or Victory Records. One of the hardest band ever, you'd better believe it. Here there's no gimmicks, no jokes just truth: FURY OF FIVE is 100% REAL.
16 minutes of intense electric execution. 4 tracks including 1 bonus song. All digitally remastered, new packaging.
Old school hardcore from New Jersey the way it was meant to be. Early Biohazard meets Sick of it All!

BUTT007 - Maypole
Burning in water, drowning in flame
Fast, energetic hardcore from The Netherlands with two vocalists, both of whom yell/scream or sing in gruff voices that are pretty similar to one another.
For fans of: GOOD RIDDANCE, PENNYWISE, BIOHAZARD and AGNOSTIC FRONT
OVER007 - Milligram
Milligram possesses a sound instantly reminiscent of a more up-tempo Kyuss, yet substantially deeper than the legions of imitators that have sprung up in their wake. Milligram's depth lies in their inherent understanding of fuzzed-out, stripped-down rock'n'roll. And considering the pedigree of their line-up (members have served in Stompbox, Slapshot and Only Living Witness), this isn't that surprising. Lead by the phenomenal vocal talents of one Jonah Jenkins (Only Living Witness and Miltown), Milligram combines the fuzzy rock'n'roll with catchy choruses, Jenkins wailing, innumerable wah-drenched guitar solos and a simple reliance on the verse-chorus-verse aesthetic.
Heavy 'stoner rock' in the vein of Kyuss, Fu Manchu and alikes
RPP00M016 - Misura/Sad Origin
Sad Origin: influenced by NYHC and with lots of double bass, Sad Origin recorded 4 new songs in the vein of Fury of Five, Length of Time and Irate and those came out on RPP in August 2000 as a split cd with Misura from USA.
Some Sad Origin members played after in Die My Demon.
Misura is brutal than ever delivering 3 tracks with a sound very similar to Hatebreed.
Great release by RPP!
AOV10 - Murphy's Law
The Party's Over
ewest album for the NYHC veterans. 15 tracks of gritty punk music with serious pop appeal. And don't forget MURPHY'S LAW, it's always a fresh experience !
The Party's Over, the band's The Age Of Venus label debut, is one of the great efforts of 2002. Noted producer Daniel Rey (Ramones, Misfits, White Zombie) has created 15 tracks of gritty punk music with serious pop appeal. Nowhere is that sonic maturity more evident than on the album's radio-friendly first single "Vicky Crown," with its tight riffs and punchy choruses. Other standout cuts include the opening shred of "Maximum Lie," the Clash-style punk/reggae of "Walking Alone," and their faithful renditions of Simaryp's "Skinhead Girl," and Beer Nuts' "Woke Up Tied Up."
