Hardcore In 2014: LPs

Hardcore LPs are almost never as good as EPs, but here are my favorites rfrom this year.
1The Boston Strangler

I mean the first LP was DAMN good but I was not even expecting this thing to blow my mind like it did. DYS/SSD-style Boston hardcore done perfectly. Go get this now dude.
2Ivy (NY)

The new band from members of Brown Sugar jump straight from a demo to an LP and you can't blame them.
3Hank Wood and The Hammerheads
Stay Home

The originators of 21st century organ punk put out an equally good 2nd LP.
4White Wards
Cigarette Burns

Members of multiple Washington bands put out a blistering collection of hardcore punk.
5Tercer Mundo
Ser Nosotros Mismos

Best spanish-language album of the year.
6Absolut (TO)
Punk Survival

2014's best offering of d-beat. From Canada!
7 Punch
They Don't Have To Believe

I always bagged on this band for all of their songs sounding the same, but they've really grown and this is a great farewell album.
8The Flex
Wild Stabs In The Dark

Violent Reaction did it last year, The Flex did it this year. UKHC LP of the year.
9 No Sir I Won't
The Whole Fucking World Is Shit

America's best attempt at Crass style anarcho-punk in ages.
Time Has Gone

Spine brings the mosh wherever they're at. Like I've said before, if you like hardcore more than punk, check this out.
11The Lowest Form
Negative Ecstasy

I don't even know anything about this band. They're either from Washington or UK I think but I saw this on Iron Lung's bandcamp and boy is it good.
12Gutter Gods

Weird as fuck, but still tough as fuck hardcore from Australia. They have some kind of technology/future theme going on. I don't know.
Electric Flower Circus

Flower punk. (Kinda sound like Fucked Up and Fugazi).
14Vanity (NY)
Vain In Life

A late year release. Almost oi. Almost kinda like Fucked Up too.
15Fucked Up
Glass Boys

Sounds like Fucked Up.
Decline and Fall

Youth Attack LP of the year.
Lights Went Out

Feel good hardcore to shout with friends.
18Full Of Hell and Merzbow
Full Of Hell and Merzbow

Man this thing is a beast. The last few tracks are nuts.
Endless Fucker

This and FOH/Merz are for the noise-lovers.
20The Impalers
Psychedelic Snutskallar

Texas band offers their final LP full of twisting, winding punk riffs.
21Stoic Violence

LA stomps?
22Gas Rag
Beats Off

Definitely not as good as the demo and EP, but some solid songs from this Chicago band of glue sniffers.
23The Combat Zone
The Combat Zone

Boston is sick. Militant oi hardcore.
24Orden Mundial
Obediencia Debida

Fuzzed out and wild. Spain does it right.
25Code Orange
I Am King

I'm gonna be disappointing some people here. I'm sorry. This just had a handful of the most gimmicky/ignorant tracks. I just wanna mosh in my bedroom sometimes, alright?
26Gas Chamber
Hemorrhaging Light

27Good Throb
Fuck Off

UK girl power.
28Trash Talk
No Peace

I liked this more than most people.

30Body Count

Body Count's still in the house. The Institutionalized remix thing is the best thing I've heard all year. Have a sense of humor. This is sick.
