Here's Tim Krysko of Wreck The Place Fantastic reporting in with our International Spotlight. Every week we're featuring updates and music downloads from bands outside the North American market. This week we're headed to Norway for another track from a band that's getting plenty of buzz `round these parts:

State Of Mind Recordings has produced some incredible hardcore these past couple years from bands like This Is Hell, No Roses, and Dead Hearts. One of their new releases is an EP from a band that I think may be their best finding to date: Oslo, Norway's Death Is Not Glamorous. The EP is essentially the band's 5-song demo, which previously went out of print in Europe, remastered. It sounds very Lifetime-inspired. Over in the UK, Dead & Gone Records is announcing a CD/7' to be released this month called "Undercurrents" consisting of new material. The band's currently touring their asses off around Europe.
