As part III of my RSD haul, I thought I'd write about this awesome little record, Bones, Dust, Nothing. Originally released a good few years back, this record contains the only tracks from short-lived band, Millenial Reign. It's a shame this band didn't stick around for longer, the four tracks they released on this EP were very promising and I've definitely gone back to listen to them time and time again.

Many great records were released as part of record store day this year. Of course there is the split I mentioned above, but that wasn't the only thing worth getting my hands on this year. Second in my RSD haul is this split 12" from the ever mysterious Psywarfare and Full of Hell.
Gone are Psywarfare's harsh electronic noises and samples and instead we have a slow, repetitive track that was inspired by Hawaiian music. This inspiration does come through, even if in an immensely twisted way. Full of Hell have also taken a step away from their norm, and produced an experimental track much more like other Psywarfare recordings, full of noise, drones and samples terrorizing your ears.
A neat feature about these records are the tiny centre labels. They are about a third the size of the regular labels, and open up a lot of that clear and camo wax.
The Full of Hell side is incredibly bleak in comparison, consisting of a single blade on a white background. It does perfectly suit the mood of the track though.

There are several bands that I personally think are big names in metallic hardcore of today. Of course that includes Integrity, but also bands like Gehenna, Rot in Hell etc. Over the last few years, several of these have been pairing up to release amazing split records. One record I have felt should exist but didn't was an Integrity / VVegas split, but this year they have finally teamed up.
