CATHARSIS Samsara TAPE (Youth Culture Records)
Catharsis was an influential American hardcore punk band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina that was active from 1994 to 2002. They were associated with “Holy Terror”, a phenomenon commonly regarded as a form of apocalyptic metallic hardcore that was breeding during the mid-’90s. Catharsis were also known for writing extremely lengthy songs (sometimes broken into multiple parts) with complex title names and unusual time signatures. Catharsis took appreciable influence from Integrity, Neurosis, His Hero Is Gone, Breakdown, Starkweather, Amebix, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Diamanda Galás, GISM, Refused and the early demo recordings of Belgian hardcore band, Negate. The dark, reggae-styled song, ‘Deserts Without Mirages’ on the album, Passion, is perhaps a reflection of the singer’s appreciation for Peter Tosh. The song’s lyrics also heavily borrow from the spoken word passages in the Godspeed You! Black Emperor song ‘The Dead Flag Blues’. Passion album also samples from Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man

HIT ME BACK Life CD (Refuse Records)
This is full length-release from this Los Angeles band. After two 7’s and two split 7″s we have it here thirteen brand new songs that have more influences of more anthemic and melodic early 80’s punk and hardcore, but still with fast and thrash hardcore parts. You can expect lots of youthful expression and energy coming out of this record. Their lyrics covering personal and social issues, not forgetting about some humor and passions of the band members – skateboarding and records collecting. All the songs were recorded in LA by Craigums (What Happens Next?). CD version contains eight bonus songs. Seven of them are taken from “Only Magic School Bus Goes Back In Time” 7″ep (including Heresy cover) and one coming from the same session, previously never released.
