Absolut - Punk Survival (D-beat from Toronto, ON, Canada on Electric Assault Records)
High energy d-beat. I wish I saw them live because apparently the energy of this record translates really well live. It's a short LP but a good one
Archagathus - Dehumanizer (Grindcore from Winnipeg, MB, Canada on Regurgitated Semen Records)
Archagathus has been taking over the mince world over the past handful of years, and here we have their second full length record. There are more pitch shifted vocals than the first LP, and there's actually a full line up that recorded this.
Arctic Flowers - Weaver (Post-punk from Portland, OR, USA on Deranged Records)
