HUMAN LAW joins DGR, Cassette Release + Video 19 November 2020

Columbus, Ohio's HUMAN LAW have joined DGR. Forming out of a long time friendship, Lee West & Collin Simula created the project, channeling in influences from metallic hardcore greats 100 Demons & Integrity, as well as so many more.

If you're aware of the duos resume, you'll know how good they are at producing metallic bangers. If you're not, let me introduce you. Lee served time in Empire Of Rats & Northern Widows, while Collin was in such bands as Symphony In Peril & currently is still in the band Maranatha.

They released an EP entitled "God's Work" back in early October of 2020 & we're excited to give it a limited cassette treatment. 30 hand dubbed gold cassettes with imprinted shells will be available on a first come, first serve basis. You can purchase those here.

Additionally, they're releasing a music video for their song "Conscious" over at No Echo! You can check out the article & video here.

DGR is excited to be working with HUMAN LAW, not only as a band that I enjoy, but as people that I grew up watching play shows in my hometown in their former & current bands.

New DGR Merch; DGR x Carhartt Hoodies, Yupoong Hats 18 March 2019

We have new merch in the webstore!

First, we have the signature DGR "Hell Is Real"/"Welcome To Ohio" design printed on Carhartt midweight hoodies. These are incredibly comfortable and run a little big. I recommend sizing down if you prefer a closer fit. There are not many of these made, so I recommend getting one before they are gone.

Next we have 3 different colors of the Yupoong Classic Dad Hats with embroidry. Colors include Black with White, Camo with Orange & Navy with Red. All hats feature "Delayed Gratification" spelled out in Cyrillic lettering & "Records" in English. This is a nod to my family's Yugoslavian roots. These are also pretty limited, with not many in each color available.

Lastly, we also made Yupoong Classic Snapbacks! Only one color for these, Black with White. Same as the dad hats, these feature the same font and words, just on a snapback. Again, super limited and only a few made.

Everything is available in the store now, grab it before it's gone. As always, thank you for supporting DGR.
