Poison Ruin formed in Philadelphia in 2020. It began as a solo recording project but developed into a full band by the end of the year. Their music combines classic anarcho/crust punk with a variety of influences including oi!, american post-punk, NWOBHM, and dungeon synth. The band heavily utilizes dark medieval imagery and lyrical themes combined with anarcho iconography. A compilation of their 2020 demos was released as an LP in 2021, followed by the ‘Not Today, Not Tomorrow’ 7” in 2022.
Poison Ruin – a dark and propulsive sound that captivates and lures in while keeping an endearing layer of isolation from the listener. There’s a film or a grit over top of modest layers of gloomy melody and hard punk energy, something like The Outsiders “One to Infinity” in the house The Wipers, Modern Warfare, and A Touch of Hysteria built. This is anarchic, pogo and pit worthy, yet catchy enough to sing back to your friends when your phone battery is dead. Flashes of electronic and synth textures colour the darkened and damp corners of Poison Ruin’s sound world and help keep brief glimpses of an open horizon on the palate for all of us to strive toward.
GLAAS is emerging from the creative and gerne-bending Berlin d.i.y. scene, with members from all over the planet. Five humans from five different places with similar political and artistical ideas is what shapes their noisy and bleak Post-/Anarchopunk sound.

A gang of stylish demons discover a wild animal pacing around a Berlin cellar, wearing only a hawaiian shirt and someone else’s blood. It doesn’t know what day it is, just that it went to a party several months ago and hasn’t been to sleep since. They lovingly rescue and rehouse the wretched creature in a glaas box where it contents to howl its paranoid chants all day for their entertainment and now ours. Laying out a mangled inventory of fractured memories, haunted visions of broken people and places making a sacred ritual out of ruining themselves GLAAS are creating hymns to so many nights gone so far wrong, from the graveyard sex to the extra bump you might have resisted had the urge to feel something not overtaken you... Employing an elevated and reinvigorated version of the ‘modern post punk with anarcho flourishes’ mode, with whirring synthesisers and creepy keys signpost into even more disorienting territory, GLAAS create a creepy and compelling soundtrack to the romantic nihilism of urban decay: disturbing lifestyle choices but make it sexy.
