I try my best to fill your orders as soon as possible but sometimes it might take 3 or 4 days longer because i am distracted with other shit that i am doing or have to do, or i am ill, or just can't be bothered. - If you think it's strange or odd you don't hear from me in a timely manner, always email and ask because i appreciate your order and support ALOT! Thanks!

BURNING FLAG – Matador LP

BURNING FLAG – Matador LP
Zoom image

Burning Flag’s 3rd album Matador is equal parts crushing, subterranean, atmospheric and galloping momentum. It has a heavy dose of the sonics of modern metal, but at it’s heart it is political punk.

Dismissing Burning Flag as “Scathing Northern Punk Noise” as they claim on Facebook would be selling them short. Their music will be right up your alley if you love a bit of the old “crust”. Where metal meets punk, with pounding drums and anarcho attitude. They’ve listened to rule number one of punk: hit the drums hard. Downtuned guitars with the odd minor chord ooze heaviness with the metally tone providing a satisfying elastic twang from single strings here and there. Combined with the crushing bass sound, at times the music is dark enough to sound subterranean. There are brief moments where they have a more atmospheric feel with a hint of Killing Joke and the death rock sound. Whilst they start off at breakneck speed, Burning Flag don’t rely on this gimmick, using heaviness and good driving riffs to power the album along.

New addition Holly, formerly of Kiss Me Killer, has a strong voice which you’d need to power through the mix. Whilst mostly their style follows the strained shouting hardcore pattern she sometimes actually sings. This gives Burning Flag some variety to make them stand out from the crowd of crusty doomy political punk bands. Backing vocals punctuate the odd song here and there to good effect.

Heavy extended mid sections are almost songs in their own right without feeling incongruous. This shows a creative approach to songs reaching beyond simple verse, chorus, middle bit, and allows them to get away with a few songs beyond the magic 3 minute mark without sounding sluggish.

Matador explores themes of mysogyny, toxic masculinity and government corruption with some class war punk rock politics thrown in (Eat The Rich). Well chosen samples punctuate and accentuate the messages. Socio-political or personal-political, it’s rooted in relevance and anger at actual shit going on rather than bland theory. This is the power of political punk. It can make issues relevant that many on the left will turn into such bland sloganeering as to make you switch off. It’s a shame it has limited reach but bands like Burning Flag have the potential to appeal to a metal audience as well as punks. (...) (Nathan / Louder Than War)

BURNING FLAG - Izabel LP

BURNING FLAG - Izabel LP

This one is another favorite of mine and i just can highly recommend this UK hardcore punk combo! This is a long overdue appearance on vinyl by this cracking UK hardcore punk band from Halifax who's line up features Md (vocals), Jonesy (guitar), Matt Fortune (drums) and Mark Midgley (bass). They formed in 2013 and released the Still A Lie ep the following year. 2015 saw a debut lp and this was followed in 2017 by "IZABEL" - The album's title is the name of the woman that showed the band around Auschwitz and spoke to them about the horrors that occurred there. It's also the name of the closing track. Other songs deal with topics such as the gun laws in the USA, the pollution of the planet and life in a shit hole rundown town where the sky's are grey and job prospects are not much brighter.

Fusing rapid hardcore with thrash metal and punk Grand Collapse are here to blow you away with their third album ‘Empty Plinths’. Grand Collapse cannot be pegged down to any one clichéd style. The heavy D-beat under flailed-out endless chords, into bellowing NYHC beatdown styles, will make you want to retrace those steps like a book you just skimmed over and felt like you missed a lot of what was going on. In his recent book ‘The Scene That Would Not Die’ Ian Glasper described Grand Collapse as “quite possibly the most vital hardcore punk band to come out of the UK in recent years, and their frantic energy and political commitment bode well for the future of the scene as an intelligent, empowering, positive force.” Who are we to disagree?
