no one wins

No one wins

North Americans! Beach Impediment Records has put this record out on vinyl in your area so check them out instead if you want to grab a copy.

At long last, the follow up to 2017’s “Who Will Play?” flexi has materialised in the form of “No One Wins” on the LP format. With influences and membership that span the world of hardcore punk, both stylistically and geographically, this platter sports 10 tracks of pummelling hardcore punk that incorporates metallic elements drawn from the near and far reaches of mid 80s international hardcore and thrash to the simplicity of domestic HC pestilence. Blended with a great finesse that is both tasteful and potent – which seems to be a rare feat to attain this day and age – and buttressed by a top notch mastering job by the great Arthur Rizk (SHIT “What Do You Stand For,” Impalers “Cellar Dweller”, Power Trip ‘Nightmare Logic’) which only feeds the fire that is the base of these already enormous tracks. GAME is the conduit. Relatively new but sending sickening sounds into the New Wave of British Hardcore collective, decimating any and all willing to be destroyed.

Seek further advice on Game’s sound via the precedent set by Gastunk, Celtic Frost, Sacrilege, Death Side, and the Execute. Members of Arms Race, Fucked Up, Career Suicide, Shrapnel, Violent Reaction and Subdued.

Catch Game on tour this August on the East Coast and Midwest USA and Canada.

Stream Game’s Debut Album No One Wins

The London band Game — who have nothing to do with the Compton rap star of the same name — play fast, feverish, guttural hardcore. They’ve got a frantic intensity and a deep reserve of anger. They’ve also got a very serious pedigree. Drummer Jonah Falco is also in Fucked Up, while singer Ola Herbich and bassist Nicky Rat are also members of the great British punk band Arms Race. A couple of months ago, Game shared four songs from their forthcoming debut album No One Wins, and all four of them absolutely ruled. That album has now arrived, and I am delighted to report that it, too, rules.

Game have a lo-fi immediacy, but they’ve also got a sense of scope; the epic album closer “Foundation And Empire” runs for six titanic minutes. Herbich turns out to be a great punk frontwoman. She sings in English and Polish, and she radiates absolute disgust at everything around her. This is a hell of a debut album, and you can stream it below.
