Thus, the period from late May to early September is that silly season when releases are rather rare. But whenever this summer hole ends, our record players, CD or tape decks, and sound speakers long for the arrival of brand new releases. For fans of Punk Rock and Hardcore, the season has begun with a big bang since Bavarian label 30 Kilo Fieber Records has provided us with two burning hot new records in early September: „Ultramarin“ by Austrian Punk rockers Anna Absolut and the selftitled EP by Germa

King Krooked Kane - Ain't Easy Being MEan Release Date: September 02, 2022 Duration: 05:07 Genre: Hip Hop / Gangsta Rap With a new track to make Flying Lotus jealous, Ultramonk 9 has released a new music video.
