New TLAL releases I haven't had time to hype
First we have the Assholeparade live 10".
Why should I convince you to buy this at all? Well its a live recording from when they played Germany. Recorded off the soundboard and then premastered and mastered down to vinyl at Lucky Lacquers to make it sound crystal clear. Gold foil stamped covers, limited pink copies. This isn't just a lofi crappy live recording, this might even sound better than the actual show did!
Next is the new Charogne Stone EP
. I've only sold one of these in the two weeks I've had this, think people don't know this is out. French straight-edge powerviolence (I think its more like superfast punk violence). Best record of theirs I've heard yet. Pretty rad packaging and pretty vinyl.Conga Fury/Shitstorm split repress
is fresh in here. Sold through the first 500 copies like it was free money. All copies are on the weird gray marbled or purpley marbled vinyl. Conga Fury is crazy spastic noise punk hailing from Japan. Shitstorm is furious grindcore from Miami, this is their first and to this date only recording with Eric playing bass on it. 500 more copies and then this thing will be gone forever.
Last and definitely not least is the Magnum Force EP
. This record kills everything. Grindcore very much ala Magrudergrind. Also this is the first TLAL release to come with a download code, DIY style. Super heavy covers, all on black vinyl, real grind form AZ. Do yourself a favor on this one.http://www.tolivealie.com

Hummingbird of Death - Show Us The Meaning Of Haste CD+ out now!!
Once you think you know a band, something like this comes along. Don't get me wrong, there is still tight whirlwind blasting from these Boise boys, but what fastcore
release have you ever heard of that has twenty two songs in thirty minutes? HOD has development full songs for this offering and they have really created complete album. The band's 5" and 7" really display tight drumming and amazing skill between quite a large number of songs, but this release is fully orchestrated... they even slow down and play mid-paced parts in this! The entire release never stops for a second; for fans of THE NEOS, LARM, D.R.I., NO COMMENT, and CROSSED OUT. Exclusive to this CD is bonus enhanced CD material including but not limited to a live video from their set at the Gilman Speed Trials.

Mesrine / P.L.F. - split 7"
The bubonic plague has returned to this generation. Social structure has become irrevocably changed and pandemonium has ensued. The carrier this time was not rats. No. This time the virus has been carried off ships on this morbid slab of vinyl, infecting millions. The MESRINE strain comes directly from Canada. Inhabiting the neutral country for more than a decade. It has been spreading across the US and Europe. Brutal blasting blows to anyone who has encountered this. The newer strain is P.L.F.. Equally as volatile, P.L.F. delivers instant nausea to anyone infected. Delivers grinding headaches and will thrash one's body leaving bruises all over. People infected with either should immediately buy this record and continue doses for as long as they have symptoms. All is not lost. Killer artwork by Matt Gauck. Buy now here

ARCHAGATHUS/SAKATAT - split 7" and TLAL Shirts out now!
Archagathus/Sakatat - split 7"
Manitoba mince masters mind the musical melange of modern day. Alliteration aside, these Canadian grindheads bring another ripping four song side of musicical mayhem akin to AGATHOCLES or ROT. Turkish grinders SAKATAT throw together eight crucial blasts just in time for Obscene Extreme. If you have not heard either band, do yourself a huge favor and snap this up while you can. In a perfect world you could go to your local record store and find that every record in the world music section was this record. Order hereTLAL Headsmash shirts

KAKISTOCRACY/ NUX VOMICA - split 7" out now! KAKISTOCRACY / NUX VOMICA - split 7"
KAKISTOCRACY cannot be labeled as just another anarcho crust hardcore band. They perform crushing live shows and are a long standing part of North Carolina history, having been a band ever since I can remember. This record is their first output since their debut LP four years ago. As far as the music is concerned, they continue to throw in super heavy parts that transition seamlessly into melodic breakaways. On the flip side, NUX VOMICA throws together some more metallicaly driven but still equally melodic crust. Having members from WAKE UP ON FIRE from Baltimore, the band has made a pilgrimage from the east coast to Portland to ruin eardrums and minds everywhere conceivable. This record single-handedly bridges the coastal gap.Grab a copy

TLAL 2008 Summer Releases
So new steady job gives way to new releases. I have been a big believer of the split release but coming up I'm trying to narrow that down some. I'm trying to work really hard and slow down the label some and focus on some choice exclusive releases.
TLAL.20 - SECRET
You will see in a couple weeks.. something I've worked hard on.
TLAL.21 - KAKISTOCRACY / NUX VOMICA - split 7"
KAKISTOCRACY play crucial NC mountain crust and have been around for probably a decade. This is their first output after a three year wait following their crushing LP on Profane Existence. NUX VOMICA is ex-Wake Up On Fire and is scathing, ripping, metallic crust punk.
TLAL.22 - ARCHAGATHUS / SAKATAT - split 7"
ARCHAGATHUS is the newly prolific Canadian AGATHOCLES-worshiping act, but I promise you they are better. Actual real thought out recordings rather than releasing random practice tapes from the mid 90's (sorry AGx, I have a special place for you in my heart even though I called you out). This stuff rips. SAKATAT from Turkey bring anything ARCH forgot in eight ripping quick grind anthems.
TLAL.23 - MESRINE / P.L.F. - split 7"
This is it. Thats all I can tell you. MESRINE from Canada have been around for more than a decade. Real, pissed, grindcore. Their newest recordings have a touch of death metal, or are at are at least more cleaned without sacrificing the raw mincing destruction. PLF tracks are so good! These tracks are like a cocophonous melange of grindcore and thrash metal. Wow. Texan domination. TLAL exclusive.
TLAL.24 - CONGA FURY / SHITSTORM - split 7"
CONGA FURY masters have been lost in the mail for three years until finally they have made the journey from Japan to myself in the US safely. Three years of anticipating this release and its finally almost here. Still waiting on SHITSTORM to record, but guess what, its worth it. After their Relapse release of "This Comp Kills Fascists," they are changing their sound for the better. Not sure if they want to me say why but you'll find out. If you haven't heard them before, the band plays mega brutal blastcore that has been known to crumple ceilings. Thats what was worth the three year wait. TLAL exclusive.
These may be gone by the time you read this, but..
10x FINAL DRAFT - s/t 7"
5x FxPxOx - 2003-2007 Recordings CD
Thanks! Everyone has been so supportive of my label throughout the existence of TLAL, I really appreciate it!
