I've always felt that that hardcore bands have presented themselves best on a shorter length format than that of a longer player. 2011 had it's fair share of good 7"s, 45 and eps and it was quite hard to decide what releases I liked best. However, with repeated listening I present my favorite 7"s from the past 12 months (in alphabetical order). Click links to buy.
Culo - Toxic Vision (Deranged Records)
Hank Wood and the Hammerheads - 7" (Toxic State)
Herds - Michigan (Residue Records)
Neo-Cons - 7" (Deranged Records)
Hardcore Elite that is also a must listen.
No Tolerance - No Remorse, No Tolerance (Youngblood)
Perdition - 7" (Toxic State)
Put To Death - 7" (DSP Records)
Slobs - Look Busy, Do Nothing (Cowabunga Records)
Social Circkle - Expiration Date (Side Two Records)
