SKARHEAD unleashed their brand of "New York Hood Core" in 1995, and the hardcore scene will never be the same. Spawned from the ashes of Crown Of Thornz, these "Kings From Queens" crack the punk/hardcore fans between the eyes with their two-fisted, streetwise style. Take what Lord Ezec (lead vocalist) says to heart when describing SKARHEAD: "This is how we live. We don't give a shit what you think. If you don't like it then get the fuck out of our way." SKARHEAD have built a tremendous and loyal following all over the world on the strength of their non-stop touring, an excellent E.P. "Drugs, Money and Sex" and their existing Crown Of Thornz fanbase. It doesn't hurt that the band's controversial and charismatic front man, Lord Ezec is an outright celebrity in Japan where he distributes his own line of clothing. He also keeps an ear to the underground through Murder Ink -his tattoo parlor in Queens, NY. SKARHEAD is also one of the most dynamic and energetic live acts in hardcore today. "Energetic", "aggressive" and "fun" are all words that come to Lord Ezec's mind when describing the on-stage party which inevitably ensues at a SKARHEAD show. Their 1998 tour with Hatebreed, Madball, Blood For Blood and Earth Crisis has created a strong buzz leading up to their debut Victory full length. SKARHEAD have built a reputation for being one of the toughest and among the most infamous bands ever to emerge from the depths of New York City. Bruising yet sincere lyrics dealing with revenge, honor and heartbreak take the listener on a hardcore joyride through a land where Drugs, Money and Sex reign supreme. Their influences range from old school hardcore to hip hop, to straight ahead punk rock. SKARHEAD brings a unique dual-vocalist style to life, and with Lou Dibella (ex-Sub Zero) blending his tough-as-nails vocals with Lord Ezec's "monster from your darkest nightmare" approach, the listeners becomes trapped in a hard-hitting ghetto reality from which they will never want to escape. SKARHEAD is the real deal, and they're teaming with Victory to prove it in 1998.
Brick By Brick
Brick By Brick has been around for a few years and is unrelenting. BxB is a blue collar hardcore/metal hybrid based out of Upstate NY. In 2014 Ray Mazzola (from Full Blown Chaos) was added as vocalist and immediately went into the studio. BxB released "This World, My Enemy" in 2015 through Eulogy Recordings. BxB has shared the stage and toured with many bands such as Anthrax, Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Biohazard, Agnostic Front, Madball, The Acacia Strain, Terror, Biohazard, Sick Of It All, and many many others from all over. BxB has appeared on many festivals, such as New England Metal Fest, Black n Blue Bowl, Tsunami Fest, Breast Fest, Motorcity Fest, Grownfest, ToughLoveFest, Florida Rules, Sound Of Revolution Fest and others as well. BxB has just returned from their first stint in Europe with Slapshot. A very successful tour. BxB has released five cd's and three 7" records as of 2017. The first 3 have sold out and are out of print with the former vocalist.

New music is available through all major internet download sites and through international distribution via Eulogy Recordings and Fastbreak Records. Just after 4 days of "This World, My Enemy" being released, according to CMJ chart reports, it debuted at #13 across the US and reached #7. Not bad for a national debut! BxB has released "Thin The Herd" on Fastbreak Records in August of 2017 and is now getting to re-release it on vinyl with worldwide disto with the help of Fastbreak, Demons Run Amok and Pitchfork Clothing (our main endorser). bxB signed with Upstate Records and released Hive Mentality with overwhelmingly great reviews!.
