RAZOR CRUSADE's last recordings!   posted: 2011-10-24

Anyone out there remember them? A band that came and went way too fast. Razor Crusade was most likely THE band on Reflections that really could have made it to the mainstream. Unfortunately, it was never ment to be. The band recorded 4 new songs right before they broke up six years ago. Those got never released to the public since now. Check it out. They're amazing.

Remember Razor Crusade? (The band that came out of the ashes of Reaching Forward and in a way pre No Turning Back, Modern Life Is War, All On Black, Justice and many more). The Dutch band that released records on Deathwish Inc. and Reflections Records? Well, before they quit in 2005 they recorded a final EP. It never got released and we're pretty stoked that together with the band and Reflections Records we can finally unleash it today - http://www.swnk.org/articles/razor-crusade-ready-and-done/

SUFFERING QUOTA joins Reflections!   posted: 2011-08-11
SUFFERING QUOTA joins Reflections!
I guess getting older doesn’t mean getting softer…. SUFFERING QUOTA is a four-piece consisting of hardcore and metal veterans from Groningen, The Netherlands, and upon hearing the first notes of their demo they completely blew us away. Their musical eruptions blending hardcore, grindcore and death metal showing their love for the extreme in music was exactly what we were looking for in a new band.

“We all like good music, whether it’s the hardcore from His Hero Is Gone and Cursed, grindcore from Assück (of course) and Phobia, the ‘screamo’ from Orchid or the death metal from Entombed or that once so famous ‘Bremen’ style from bands like Systral. We like it all. We even like punkrock as well! Eh… except the whimpy kind ofcourse!”

The bands cultural background truly comes forward in their no-nonsense approach: A fast and brutal kick in the face leaving you gasping for air. Reflections Records is proud and above all filled with adrenaline to bring you once again a band that shows the essence of real hardcore: Anger and aggression packed in sound.

SUFFERING QUOTA will release their debut 12” this coming winter.
More news on the exact release date and pre-orders coming soon.

INHERIT joins Reflections!   posted: 2011-08-11
INHERIT joins Reflections!
Some formulas never seem to fail. Nothing can beat hard riffing with meaningful lyrics. People are always hungry to hear music that makes them feel like wrecking the dancefloor or stage diving whilst blasting a song on headphones 10 minutes before their job interview.

At its essence hardcore is more than music. INHERIT, from London combine thrash/crossover guitar work with NYHC grooves and lyrics that go deeper than the usual tired clichés. Aggressive tunes to help you keep a PMA at a time when this world seems to be heading towards full collapse... Don't lose hope.

INHERIT’s debut 7” will be released by Reflections Records this coming autumn.
More news on the exact release date and pre-orders coming soon.

NO TURNING BACK album of the month!   posted: 2011-02-01
Check http://legendsarising.com/ where they picked NO TURNING BACK's Take Control as album of the month!

First review from No Turning Back - Take Control   posted: 2011-01-14
'Take Control, take a stand, take the world in your hand'. Ever since getting the new No Turning Back record at the record release show in Tilburg these lines keep popping up in my head.

I have never been the biggest fan of No Turning Back, though I prefer their later records over the early more beatdownesque stuff. I've seen this band grow and do things not many other European hardcore bands have done before. For example the 'Stronger' world tour which brought them to all continents except for the North and South Poles.

Unlike most bands No Turning Back never went for a drastic change in the music they play, they always keep things within the bounderies of hardcore.

'Take Control' might therefore be received as an another No Turning Back record. If you hear one, you've heard them all. If that's your opinion, you're not really listening. Play 'Damage Done'(probably the best NTB record to date) and after that 'Take Control' and you'll hear the subtle differences.

'Take Control'is in a way similar to Terror's 'Keepers Of The Faith'. There are hooks and guitarmelodies which make the songs more melodic without resulting in a melodic hardcore record.

If anything 'Take Control' is as much about anger (Justice) as it is about looking back (Always Will Be). It's the comfort of meeting up with old friends, discovering not everything has to change over the years (Strife).

'Take Control' is a new milestone in the discography of No Turning Back and shows a band that's cool with what they've acomplished so far, yet still eager and hungry to take things to the next level.

RITUAL finishes recording new album   posted: 2011-01-10

While most people have celebrated the holidays by hanging out and doing nothing, Ritual worked their asses off at the studio to record (most of) their upcoming new album. From what the guys have been telling us, they’re going absolutely bezerk and said that they wanted to create the most in-depth album they could possibly make. Without wanting to compare themselves with the geniuses from Refused, the band said they wanted to create their very own “Shape of Punk To Come”… Quite a statement we’d say but knowing these guys and knowing their musical interest, Ritual could very well come up with something absolutely amazing! We’re patiently waiting for more details and sounds.

Check out the band’s blog at: ritualblogspot.com for news on upcoming tours (with Ills and Soul Control!) and the status of their new recordings

We’re getting stoked!

No Turning Back 'Take Control'   posted: 2010-12-08
“While Take Control is as far away from a concept album as can be, there is certainly a general theme behind the songs. Take Control in this case is meant quite literally. It's about no longer being a spectator but becoming a driving force in your own life and the world around you. It also clearly reflects our attitude towards the inner workings of the music industry, even within hardcore. We want to show that DIY ethics do not only apply to the way we run our band, but to every other aspect of our lives.”

Take Control, No Turning Back's new full length studio album, due out February 11, 2011 on Reflections Records, is not only the result of recent events in the members' personal lives but also of the highly inflammable chemistry between musician's that have spent the better part of the last two years out on the road. It is hard to talk about anything related to NTB without talking about gruesome touring schedules that reach even the most remote corners of the world, spreading the hardcore gospel and striking up intense relationships with new and long time fans alike. This approach has proven it's worth with sold out club shows worldwide, appearances at all the major festivals, over 25000 records sold, and even a never-ending stream of fans committing their love for the band to their bodies in the form of tattoos.

“The record really is about us taking control not only as a band but also as individuals,” singer Martijn Van Den Heuvel says. “This last year we had band members starting a van rental company for bands, a booking agency and even a workshop for custom built drum kits. The music and the lifestyle have become absorbed in our day to day lives. We feel Take Control is us documenting growing up and becoming adults while still remaining true to the ideals we had as 15 year old kids playing rudimentary music in our parents' garage.”

No Turning Back are not only maturing as individuals, upon first listen of Take Control it becomes immediately clear that they have grown immensely as a band. Where their previous album Holding On and Stronger were primarily tributes and homages to the classic hardcore sound the band has grown up on, Take Control has, according to guitarist Emiel Laurant, “A deep dedication to groove as well as more focus on song composition and arrangements. Holding On and Stronger were in a sense our breakthrough records and they are really just very punk in a lot of ways. Not that there is anything wrong with that but this time we wanted to push ourselves as songwriters and kind of push the envelope of things while still remaining a hardcore band in it's purest sense.”

Having entered the studio with fully structured songs, Laurant and producer Dirk Miers (De Studio) were free to explore new approaches to working with two guitarists. After a writing process that took up well over a year the band holed up in a remote and isolated practice space to really start hammering out all the kinks. “We took a couple months to put the basic song ideas together, then go back and put them under a microscope and really take our time to find out how all the different parts would fit together best so all the songs would flow together really well. When time came to record we had a lot of time to focus on contributing sounds or parts that would enhance the songs, lift them up from basic sketchbook ideas to real stand alone songs in every right.”

Martijn adds, “We were interested in making this record sound huge. Not like stadium huge but huge in a way that the songs would sound big in any type of setting, whether that be headlining a big fest or playing a dingy shed in someones back yard.” When saying dingy sheds in someones back yard you can trust Martijn knows what he's talking about. He’s been here since day one. NO TURNING BACK plays anywhere and everything: From house shows to a headlining slot at Europes’s biggest hardcore festival, Ieper Fest. Following the release of Stronger on various labels on all 5 continents on the planet, No Turning Back stunned both fans and critics when in 2009 they announced they would embark on the Stronger World Tour, literally playing everywhere on the planet and in the process becoming the first European hardcore band to hit such exotic locations as China, Costa Rica, New Zealand and South Africa. “With every record it has been a huge step forward. Every record has led to us playing more shows in more countries than any European band in this genre.”

As No Turning Back surges forward they fully acknowledge their accomplishments couldn't have been possible without their extremely loyal followers. “We recognized kids worldwide spontaneously started spreading the word about our band through numerous different media outlets. With Take Control we wanted them to be a part of the release of this record and simultaneously become a part of the original grassroots DIY movement that was hardcore before the advent of the internet,” says Laurant. “We are constantly in touch with kids worldwide personally who help us out. They have become our friends and family. They take care of us when we visit their countries and sometimes even their homes. We're all in this together. Something like this can only happen in hardcore. It's truly inspirational."

No Turning Back - Reaching Foward 7   posted: 2010-12-04
With a worldwide release of the band’s next chapter TAKE CONTROL February 15, 2011 we wanted to give something extra and something special for those who have been following and supporting the band since day one. Next to their upcoming new album, NO TURNING BACK recorded four extra songs to be released as a VERY limited 7”, entitled “Reaching Forward”. With four songs of pure, unadulterated hardcore this 7” is limited to 500 copies with 100 on colored vinyl (mailorder only). We are now taking pre-orders. So be quick and don’t miss out! We’ll include a huge TAKE CONTROL promo poster with every order as well. We expect these to come in around the second week of December so you’ll get it right in time for Xmas.

DEAL WITH and RITUAL records arrived!   posted: 2010-10-21
After an insane struggle we finally got the RITUAL and DEAL WITH IT records in today. They got lost in transit, basically travelled all over Europe, but survived and we got them! We're sorting out color variations and are packing up the RITUAL 7"es (all by hand... get it and you'll see the insane artwork!) and then we start shipping records tomorrow, starting by those that ordered first. We hope to have send out all pre-orders by mid- next week. Thanks to all of you who ordered and remained patient. If you want colored vinyl, don't hesitate since we're sure they're gone this weekend!
