You know when you hear that record that hits you like a ton of bricks, and you wonder how did I miss this for so long? After reading the UTOPIA BANISHED and SKULL FUCKED best of 2012 posts, I decided to check out some of the releases on the list that I hadn't heard yet. Utopia Banished and Skull Fucked had EXCELLENT top 2012 list, so how could I doubt anything on these lists? Anyways, I decided to give Violent Future a shot, and I'm super glad I did.

 I was completely blown the fuck away when I heard this. All year, I have had Shipwrecked - Last of the Pagans at my top spot for 2012, and this release may even challenge that. Words can't describe how impressed I am by this band. It is a great mix of super raw hardcore with a touch of Oi!... That's what I'm fucking talking about!!! All of that youth crew and metal influenced hardcore is nice and all, but compared to shit like this you just can't fuck with it. This is definitely one of my favorite releases of the last decade, period. Ever since discovering this I've been in a constant Violent Future listening frenzy. If you don't own this yet, then you're retarded. There's no other way to put it. You can even download it for free from the label, so what excuse do you have?

I don't know the pressing info for this release but I atleast know that Painkiller put out some red vinyl for this and I'll definitely be in the hunt for that. There is really nothing left to say, just go buy this release immediately. GOON LIFE!!!!


  1. Man.. thanks for the kind words. Painkiller pressed 201 on red and 305 on black hopefully it shows up somewhere for you.. I don't know if you know but we just put out a new 4 song 7" on Slasher Records you can download it here http://www.mediafire.com/?76cqmgq2zwgbq4a and pick it up from katorga works, grave mistake or rev.

  2. Yeah I play bass in violent future.

  3. Love this band, have yet to pick up either 7" though. Definitely need to do that at some point. Is the demo still available online anywhere?

  4. Glad my list helped you discover a new favorite! Thanks for the mention man!
