2014-11-02 - New releases 2014-2015
The upcoming records in the first half of 2015 will be:
Distress - S/T. You know what to expect from this outragous Russian crusties by now, don't you? This one is a 5 song selftitled EP. Out late 2014 or early 2015. Listen to two of the new tracks: http://distressrawshit.bandcamp.com/
Social crisis/Ultimo rausea/Matka teresa/Controlled existence - 4 way split of crust, powerviolence and what not. Expect mayhem!
Passiv d√∂dshj√§lp - L√∂gner. Two covers on a 5" EP, maybe late 2014 or early 2015.
Exilent - Signs of Devastation LP. I was totally blown away by this act at Punk illegal 2013. A limited and a regular LP version will be available in 2015.
Link - Chapter IV. A new 6 song LP will be out by those belgian crusties in 2015.
Social crisis/Days of desolation - Split EP.
2014-10-17 - HALVEP084 out now
Today we do release the highly awaited new EP by M:40, called B√§r mig till bikten. M:40 are back after their fullength album Diagnos (HALVCD070, September 4, 2012). This piece of plastic gives us two new tracks of raging hardcore/crust from Lidk√∂ping. Strictly limited to 320 copies. The music can best be described as if you took the rage from Totalt j√§vla m√∂rker and you would mix it up with the moodier parts from Neurosis. The mixture keeps the music interesting at all times. This EP really can‚Äôt make anyone disappointed; if you liked their fullength you will love the EP!
2014-10-15 - D-beater, excellent new punkblog
There are a new punkblog called D-beater and they did a short interview on behalf of the Halvfabrikat Store. This is available at the link: http://dbeatbeater.com/record-shopping-at-halvfabrikat-record-shop/
Also, D-beater mentioned that Misantropic made it all the way to MTV. Pretty crazy if you ask me. I don't know if they need new genres or even if the 80s are bac. Nonetheless. Check it at the link. http://www.mtviggy.com/lists/youth-against-fascism-8-artists-fighting-the-good-fight/
There are a new Review of Passiv d√∂dshj√§lp/Achilles made in Czech at http://www.kidsandheroes.com/passiv-dodshjalp-achilles-split/

2014-02-19 - Store news
Two weekends, and this is what we have been doing. All the renovation has been done, also the LP/EP bins has been put into place.
The LP/EP bins fitted perfectly, actually, if they had been one millimeter longer, they would not have fitted at all... The first images shows the bins in place. The second is the same filled to the brim with merch.
We have gotten a load of records from Power-it-up Records, Selfmadegod Records and Disiplin Media (formerly known as Nakkeskudd Plater). Those are up on sale now.
2014-02-02 - General label news
This is what we have been working on a few months now. A real recordstore, which will contain only punk (in different shapes). The storearea is located in a basement. Outside there is plenty of parkingspace. Axvall is located right in between of Stockholm and Gothenburg, and only one Swedish mile detour from Skara (follow signs toward Sk√∂vde). We are not yet open for business, but we will be late spring 2014.
The first images shows how the room looked like prior to the renovation. The second show the room after the renovation. The biggest improvement so far is the floor, and the fact that we got ridden of the pisslike white/yellow walls (not really showable on the image, but believe me, it was there).
To celebrate the fact that we gotten this far, we would like to give all a little discount. Shop now and you receive a discount of 10%. Who knows when this discount will end, but most likely it will stay during the month of february. However; do you dare to wait and see?
2014-01-26 - Misantropic/Eaten Raw next up, plus more new releases in the pipeline
OK, so up next is the Misantropic/Eaten Raw split LP. This will be a gatefolded sleeve. A limited version of 100 copies will be made on White vinyl. The rest, 400, will be done on black. Also, only the first pressing will be made as gatefold... Release is set to March 20.

General Halvfabrikat News
So, you might have noticed there has been little to none activity on this page? Are you one of those was been mailing us about this? We have had several persons mailing us about the lack of news. Have we been lazy? In fact no, we have some major news to tell. But this will have to wait a while longer... All I say right now is that the spring of 2014 will be one of the busiest one yet.
