The Offical Release party for JUNKIE KUT‘s debut single, “Pixel Picture” available for download from itunes, amazon, spotify & bandcamp from Friday 25th November 2011.

Fusing the sound of hardcore punk rock with underground rave culture, JK has established a dedicated European following as the rising star of a new wave of live electron…ic music. Following in the footsteps of bands like The Prodigy & Atari Teenage Riot, he delivers his unique techno-punk sound using vocals, guitar & electronic drums all performed live! After extensive releases on underground net-labels, such as Splatterkore, DTRASH & Splitterblast Records, JUNKIE KUT is releasing his groundbreaking debut single, “Pixel Picture” with Unrepresented Music on 25th November 2011.

Following his UK tour with renowned metal band, “Anaal Nakrath” last year, irish metal speedcore warrior Drugzilla has conquered the European Gabba scene and has worked alongside Russ Russel (Napalm Death/The Bezerker), Alex B (Leechwoman/Terorizer Mag) & Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams/Aborted) on his mosty recent album Siamese Beashts. Crossing a dark sense of Irish humour with full on speedcore beats, Extreme Metal and evil sounding Trance Rhythms mashed with total Power Electronics chaos, DRUGZILLA is one of the most extreme live sets the world has ever seen.

Spawning from the depths of the London squat underground, Zara Skumshot, Flange Magnus & Lovely Lewis take a shocking approach to modern day grindcore, industrial & black metal, with their adequately disturbing recipe for audio disaster.The band has been featured several times by UK extreme music magazine, Terrorizer & has released several 7” vinyl’s on record labels such as Hirn Trust Grind Media & Legs Akimbo Records.Categorising themselves as “Electro-porno-grind”, Skat Injector take their influence from bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed, The Bezerker & Extreme Noize Terror, which is then saturated with smut, gore and sexuality in their unique mix of cyber metal chaos. For fans of grindcore, speedcore and everything extreme, Skat Injector are not for the faint hearted!

Nottingham based experimental punk noize band. Remenicent of the post-hardcore rock band Mclusky, Vinolent is brutal concoction of punk freeform and youthful grunge rebellion. Known for their energetic live performance, the band have built momentum in Nottingham and beyond!
