Title: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: Will on 02 May 2009, 14:11
(Mods, feel free to merge this with the Mediaf!re thread if you feel a new topic is inappropriate)

At the request of DynamiteKid and spoon_of_grimbo, I have started a thread for hardcore music. I understand that this kind of angry yelling music is not everybody's cup of tea, but for those of you that are interested, I will start with a couple of my own "highly-recommended's"

This is my favorite album period. It represents everything I love about music in general. DK, this is definitely one you should check out.

Far too few people know about this band. Another one of my favorites. "Goddamn it baby, this is soul! What's wrong with you?"

Botch's "We Are The Romans" should be required in this thread. I'd upload it now but I just got back from a bike ride.

Ten Grand are also pretty good too.

Disjointed post-hardcore is delicious! Thank you for this thread.

mediafire won't seem to load for me right now, but tomorrow, if i remember, i'll up "heavier than heaven, lonelier than god" by blacklisted, drive like jehu's "yank crime," "this is where the fight begins" by the ghost of a thousand, "bearing and distance" by ghostlimb, and glass and ashes' self-titled record.  all totally awesome.

Jane Doe is utterly textbook metalcore. That Ghostlimb album is great as well, surprisingly catchy and tuneful. And nothing bad can ever come from someone uploading Jehu.

I already really like this thread.

Voorhees - 13 (Six Weeks, 1998)

http://www.mediaf!re.com/?sharekey=5822ced43b584892d956df2962098fcbe9a5bcf30af66611b8eada0a1ae8665a
Voorhees were a seminal band for me, this was one of the first DIY records I ever heard. Back in the late '90s/early '00s when I first got into DIY music they always seemed to be around, playing with bands like Kill Your Idols and Melt-Banana. They were one of those bands that are the backbone of a scene, and with good reason. They were downright nasty. Hardcore that wasn't self-consciously old school (despite the band forming in '91) or going with the then-rising tide of metalcore (but it is massively heavy, I seem to remember Jacob Bannon was a fan and name-checked them on the Jane Doe tour which ties this in with Converge). It's fast but doesn't head into grind territory, instead preferring to batter the listener around the head at a speedy but reasonable tempo with occasional brutal chug passages just to grind salt into the wound. Their misanthropic hate is equalled only by the likes of Poison Idea and Urko (who I'd love to post here since they're tragically overlooked but sadly can't), but like those bands there's a sense of humour here too, what with the ridiculous Night Of The Crabs and a song title taken from a Brass Eye quote (which ties it in with Glass And Ashes, who were variously appalled and enthralled by that TV show. And no, I'm not sure why I felt the need to find tenuous links between this and other bands mentioned so far either).

When we're talking hardcore we're talking American Hardcore hardcore right?
Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: a pack of wolves on 02 May 2009, 17:09
Depends what you mean. American Hardcore pretty much regards hardcore as dead by the mid-'80s if I remember rightly and none of the bands mentioned so far were active back then. So no in that sense, although all the bands from that book do play the kind of music we're talking about.

I never really understood that whole idea that hardcore was done and dusted by around '84 just because a lot of the initial bands had split. Black Flag were still active, Youth Crew hadn't happened yet... it always seemed it was just an attitude held by people who'd dropped out and somehow felt the need to justify that by saying it was all over anyway.

I really don't want to turn this thread into a big prick-waving dickfight over what defines "hardcore" - I'd rather possibly discover some new stuff I hadn't heard before. Basically, if you think it qualifies as hardcore, throw it up. 80's, 90's, now...whatever. Basically, I want a place on this board to gush over the GRR BLAH FUCK angry music the same way everyone else gushes over their favorite beep-beep-tweedle-dee band, or their lo-fi happy pop, or whatever else my good friends in the main mediaf!re thread are gushing over*


*Don't be offended by this, I like a lot of your beep-beep-tweedle-dee pop music guys!

EDIT-My next offering.

Quote
Very rarely does a hardcore band pull off a concept album, let alone do it this well. Defeater's 2008 release "Travels" spends a concise 35 minutes telling the story of an unnamed protagonist, from his birth to his formative adolescent years, telling tales of confrontations with his alchoholic & abusive father, his junkie mother ("well, the money's all gone and we can't pay the rent with that needle in her arm") and everything in between. By the end of the record, he has returned to the home he abandoned, to finally deals face to face with what he left behind. Musically, there's a strong influence from American Nightmare and the Kerouac-ian literary/lyrical trappings of Modern Life Is War. Throw in a dash of unabashed love and respect for the archetypes of small-town middle America a la Springsteen, and you've got a fan-fucking-tastic slice of music to prove that intelligent and worthwhile hardcore didn't die in '85.

I wasn't meaning to do that, sorry if I came across as prick-waving. I've never been overly fussed about what gets called hardcore, unlike emo it's never been much of a bankable term so it doesn't get all that misused really. I just always thought that particular book's definition would be really confusing to someone just wanting to know what hardcore was since it pretty much denies anything after a certain point being hardcore, and I'm just not ready to admit the irrelevance of Chain of Strength.

They had officially the best name of any band of all time.

No worries, wolves, I wasn't meaning to accuse you of anything. It's a valid question asking what exactly we're going to call "hardcore," I just don't want this to turn into...well, a thread bitching about proper terminology like the ones about emo always seem to.

Tommy, I am not at all surprised that you liked Ten Grand. They seem like the sort of thing you would enjoy (granted, I haven't been here for two years, so your tastes may have very well changed). There's some tragedy involved there too, with their singer dying shortly after they recorded their second album.

Very sad indeed. Great band, lovely people by all accounts.

Did I mention they had the best name of all time? They also had a couple of the best song titles of all time.  My favourite two being 'Fuck You Guyses Teams' and 'I Will Seriously Pay You to Shut Up'.

"This Isn't Heaven...This Sucks!"

I think every single one of their song titles were brilliant, and they were doing it LONG before that turned into the trend in hardcore. Next time I upload to mediafire, I'll put up their first record "The Comprehensive List Of Everyone Who Has Ever Done Anything Bad To Us."

I'd never heard Ten Grand before now. They really are very good, it reminds me a bit of a less frantic Wolves! (of Greece) with more of those '90s-style slow parts. Thanks for that.

Crushing, heavy hardcore with lots of crust and metal in the mix. Several of the members went on to form the more melodic Tragedy. It basically sounds like the downfall of civilisation, which is exactly what I want from this kind of band.

Swedish metallic hardcore that's on more than a nodding acquaintance with emo. Fierce, solid stuff.

Also, United Nations are a kind of post-hardcore supergroup that made one hell of an album.

Yeah, I wasn't meaning to raise discussions. Without researching the bands you had posted, I just wanted to verify this wasn't the electronic variety of hardcore. I'm not very much into hardcore, so I used american hardcore as a reference. I loved the music from that movie, but I haven't really gotten that much into it. I'll definitely be checking some of these bands out.

I've been meaning to check out His Hero Is Gone for a while now. I picked up a copy of Tragedy's "Nerve Damage" a few months back, and really dig it.

I'll be gone for a couple of days, but when I come back here's what's coming up next:

Trap Them - "Siezures In Barren Praise"
American Nightmare - "Background Music"
Modern Life Is War - "Witness"

unless someone else wants to up these first!

That's exactly who I mean. I was thinking of sticking up the second record. I've not got any B-sides yet, but I will most certainly get around to it. I have a very rare early song as well and them on the radio covering 'Feel Good Inc.'.

I also plan on sticking up some Hell Is For Heroes, Lucky Nine and the United Nations record.

that sounds awesome to me mate!  actually, you mention HIFH, that reminds me of a band from a similar sorta era/scene who i should upload at some point, Frank Turner's old band Million Dead.

here's the stuff i promised earlier:

The Ghost of a Thousand - "This Is Where the Fight Begins"  (2007)

(http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/408/tgoattiwtfb.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?o2w2llyn32j
British punk'n'roll injected hardcore, from the same scene as Gallows, but without the posturing and hype.  Fans of the Bronx's earlier, heavier stuff will love this.  They've got a new album coming out soon on Epitaph, and judging by the new song on their myspace, it's gonna be good!



Hüsker Dü - "Zen Arcade"

(http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/458/huskerduzenarcade.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?dy2dmjnmudm
Hüsker Dü's last album as a hardcore punk band, before they moved towards a more alternative-rock sound, but still not your typical hardcore fare.  Full of weird experimental twitches (not to mention 14minute-long feedback-drenched instrumental closer "Reoccuring Dreams"), this is an epic piece of work.



Blacklisted - "Heavier than Heaven, Lonelier than God"  (2008)

(http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/8418/blacklistedhthltg.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?wzyzewyqwct
I bought this purely on the basis that the artwork looks awesome (and it really does; both the cover and the inner liner notes have some of the most brilliant, moody artwork, and it fits well with the music), but it turned out to be a short, but explosive blast of contemporary hardcore, completely devoid of cliches, and full of passion.



Drive Like Jehu - "Yank Crime"  (1994)

(http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/3048/yankcrime.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?m1w1znzfqoj
An intricate, heavy, pissed-off, varied bulldozer of feral post-hardcore/math-rock.  Proper classic, and it's got John Reis (of Rocket from the Crypt/Hot Snakes/Night Marchers) and Rick Froberg (Hot Snakes/Obits) on guitars and vocals, so you KNOW it's gonna be good!



Glass and Ashes - "Glass and Ashes"  (2008)

(http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/4231/glassandashes.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?2xmagmubmzy
The heavier bits are like Drive Like Jehu being burned alive whilst being sandblasted to fuck in a desert storm, whereas the more restrained parts harness the eeriness and atmosphere of post-metal, without the excessively drawn-out song structures.  Brutal (NOT br00tal) throughout, and easily my favourite album of 2008.



Ghostlimb - "Bearing and Distance"

(http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/1474/ghostlimbbearinganddist.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?rn5nnjjghrd
The band describe themselves as "massively pissed-off hardcore," and this is about right, although despite the throat-scraping vocals, there's a lot of melody to be found here in the guitar parts, and the very clean production actually adds to the impact.

I am not super into hardcore.  I usually just am not angry enough for it?
 I can tell you what I am into though.  Conor Oberst's soulful eyes.  Yeah I know, I know.  Bright Eyes sucks etc etc.  But this is the hardcore thread so that is not what I am here to talk about.

Is Desaparecidos an acceptable contribution?  I hope so because they were pretty good.

i think "harmony no harmony" is still pretty widely available on stuff like amazon.co.uk (that's where i got it, if i remember rightly), but "a song to ruin" is drastically out of print.  i actually emailed the record label and they've got no intention of re-releasing it yet.  i ripped mp3s off a mate's CD- he was savvy enough to get into the band earlier than me and bought it when it came out.  but yeah, frank's a pretty great lyricist.  i remember hearing "this air conditioned life has had me gasping for some reeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaal conversation" blaring out of the TV when the "breaking the back" video first started getting airtime and thinking "well, THAT's different!"  even his simpler style in his solo stuff is still full of cool wordplay.

I am more into the later hardcore stuff that came out in the 90's.  Not interested in a purist "this is hardcore and that isn't' deabte.  Just sayin' these are good records-

Refused "Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent" - Stylistic swedish hardcore record.  Very influential, although not nearly as acclaimed as "Shape of Punk to Come" (which I think is probably not a hardcore record, despite some of the influence still left over in the songs).

Snapcase "Progression Through Unlearning" - This is just an amazing album, with some great twin guitar work and killer drums.
(Very odd snare drum sound on this album.  It sounds like a piccolo snare tuned low, and he hits it on almost every 2 and 4 so that it's like having a metronome through the whole record).

One.King. Down. "Gravity Wins Again" - One of the earlier "metalcore" bands.  Occasionally too metal, but good nonetheless.

Drowningman "How They Light Cigarettes In Prison," and "Rock N Roll Killing Machine" - Chaotic but much more focused than a Dillinger Escape Plan/Botch, etc.  Really dark sense of humor and some of the most hilarious song titles ever. (e.g. "If God Loves A Winner He's Going to Want to Fuck Me In A Minute" and "Last Week's Minutes From teh Secret Society of Your Friends Who Actually Hate You.")

Dillinger Escape Plan-  Arguably, this is stretching the label; although I always saw them touring with hardcore bands.  Definitely the early stuff had the same vocal delivery, but the jazz interludes and total odd-meter stuff was sooo different.  Hate the new record.

Hopesfall- "The Frailty of Words".  I believe almost all of the band on this album has since quit making them almost unrecognizable, but this was a great album, Christian lyrical content aside.  This was the first time I heard traditional hardcore blended with the 90's indie-rock emo style of bands like sunny day.  I have a shirt form this tour that the singer gave me after a show.  They were unbelievable intense live.  At one point, a guest vocalist put a mic IN HIS MOUTH and ran out into the pit while screaming.  

Coalesce - Great live band.

Obviously there are more...

i think metalcore is acceptable in this thread, as long as it's more botch than it is KsE. 

i might up a coupla johnny truant albums.  they're a uk metalcore band influenced by botch, dillinger etc.  but with the emphasis on heaviness and atmosphere over technicality.

Did Johnny Truant do that track I Am The Primatologist Mr Sarpolsky (I probably spelled that wrong) or am I getting them mixed up with Three Stages Of Pain again?

Metalcore done right is a beautiful thing. I should probably put some Chokehold up here at some point. Content With Dying is almost at the opposite end of the spectrum to something like Jane Doe or We Are The Romans, eschewing the tight musicianship and production values, but it's very nearly as awesome.

Were One King Down that band that had a split EP with Spirit Of Youth? I think it would have been on Genet, Goodlife or Sober Mind, one of those Belgian edge labels anyway. I was never all that into the whole H8000 thing but Spirit Of Youth always felt a bit different. Colors That Bleed and to a lesser extent Source were good records, I always rather liked their very ecological brand of mosh. If I'm right, were One King Down part of that whole scene or were they an unconnected band they just happened to do a record with?

JFA (Jodie Foster's Army) on the other hand were not edge. Definitely, thoroughly not edge. Weed, skating and thrashing were the order of the day. This is the album Alternative Tentacles put out which has a couple of their early releases from '81 and '83 as well as a bunch of compilation tracks and the like. It's sloppy, fun and actually surprisingly inventive at times. One of their bassists ended up in Sun City Girls.

Anyone in the D.C. area, I have just about everything Revelation Records put out from start through about 92 or so on vinyl.  Let me know if you want to come by and we can have a listening/taping party.   Likewise for a hell of a lot of the old Discord stuff (how about a first pressing of the eponymous Fugazi?  or some old Scream stuff with Dave Grohl playing drums?).  Same for a pretty good chunk of the SST library.

Only condition is you have to listen politely as I relive my youth telling you about going to shows in the 80s.     :roll:

Most of these bands 1) are from or either similar in style to bands from Eastern Us, mostly Boston, MA -  unofficial hardcore capital of the universe 2) contain generous amounts of gang shouts,  introspective/sometimes angry/always catchy(see:awesome) lyrics, more gang shouts, the occasional breakdown or twenty 3) will most likely cause you to spontaneously (and uncontrollably) start a one-person circle pit.

 if you like anything you hear, I have all of their albums I can up (pending medif!re's behavior).  I will definitely add links to the albums I really love and think y'all should too. I personally think these are all some of the best hardcore/metalcore/whatever-core bands out right now, and are all worth a listen if you are at all a fan of this type of music.

7 Angels 7 Plagues (http://www.myspace.com/7a7phxc) - their album Jhazmyne's Lullaby is one of the most solid hardcore/metalcore albums ever. The piano outro will make you cry.

Misery Signals (http://www.myspace.com/miserysignals) - speak of the devil, consists of members from ^ 7A7P. Metal, with a fair amount of 'core, Misery Signals are definitely one of my favorite bands. Ever. I remember posting about how their most recent album was perfect (because it is) - the lyrics, the production, songwriting, the guitars/drums/bass/xylophones, the way the album 'flows' - everything. I also stated that the last two songs will give you chills (because they will). A most-definite must-listen.

Betrayed (http://www.myspace.com/betrayed) - melodic hardcore with gangshouts aplenty

Black My Heart (http://www.myspace.com/blackmyheart) - raw, crushing, super-aggressive.

Shipwreck A.D. (http://www.myspace.com/shipwreckmv) - sound like their band name (how appropriate)

Carpathian (http://www.myspace.com/carpathian) *- from Australia, although strangely my favorite hardcore album last year - I actually upped it, but it tragically died in the mf!re fire of o8'. Very powerful, both lyrically and musically.

Celeste (http://www.myspace.com/unhiverdeplus). Scariest, kvltest, most French-iest hardcore ever. Think Converge, except even dirtier and spookier, and a vocalist who screams in unintelligible French.

Comeback Kid (http://www.myspace.com/comebackkid) - one of the funnest bands ever. watch their video for wake the dead (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvNvlhzTS54) and agree

Cursed (http://www.myspace.com/cursedhardcore) self-proclaimed loudest band in Canada

First Blood (http://www.myspace.com/firstblood). Represent San Franciscan hardcore. Angry. Makes you want to run in circles, angrily.

For the Fallen Dreams (http://www.myspace.com/forthefallendreams) - bordering on the more 'core side of metal, than hardcore. Another one of the most solid bands to release an album last year. Incorporates a fair amount of melodic, ringing chords interspersed with dissonant riffs/breakdowns - very catchy. A definite must listen.

Have Heart (http://www.myspace.com/haveheart) - hands down my favorite hardcore band, ever. The most perfect blend of Masshole hardcore. Really inspiring lyrics/songwriting, too. You definitely aren't a real hardcore fan if you don't like these guys. You will probably like this band even if you don't like hardcore. I like to think of the vocalist as a person who doesn't scream, but rather recites poetry very loudly.

Mind Eraser (http://www.myspace.com/minderaserhc) - another super-solid Boston HC band. Their most recent album is the biggest mindfcuk ever. Two songs, each at or longer than ten minutes. Dirty as hell production/vocals. Almost drone/doom-like passages. Guitar leads/solos (what?!). A snare drum that punches you in the face, five times, every times it hits.

Palehorse (http://www.myspace.com/palehorse). one word: PALEHORSE. *moshes*

Pulling Teeth (http://www.myspace.com/pullingteethmd). Just how I like my women (fast and angry).

Scarlet (http://www.myspace.com/scarletcult). One of the more 'unique' hardcore/metalcore bands I've discovered. Solid hardcore mixed with melodic(singing!) vocals and even some electronic elements.

Shai Hulud (http://www.myspace.com/profoundhatred) - another 'if you don't listen to these guys you aren't a real hardcore fan'-band.

Trap Them (http://www.myspace.com/trapthem) - 2008 was a pretty great year for hardcore. These guys put out one of the most solid hardcore albums in recent. A must-have for Converge fans.

The Acacia Strain (http://www.myspace.com/theacaciastrain)-  my kind-of-but-not-really guilty pleasure in hardcore. Very fun listen. Just to give you an idea of them, here are some song titles from their most recent album: "Skynet," "Dr. Doom," "Cthulhu," "JFC," and "Kräken." They also like artificial harmonics a lot, and dabble in a fair amount of polymetric drumming/guitars  for those music dorks. They also have a music video thematically based around the glorious sport of tetherball (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUgCxVbtlMQ)

Crushing, heavy hardcore with lots of crust and metal in the mix. Several of the members went on to form the more melodic Tragedy. It basically sounds like the downfall of civilisation, which is exactly what I want from this kind of band.

^ This is awesome!  Sounds like a lo-fi Trap Them, me likey!


Did Johnny Truant do that track I Am The Primatologist Mr Sarpolsky (I probably spelled that wrong) or am I getting them mixed up with Three Stages Of Pain again?

yep that's the truant.  they went and broke up last year though  :cry:

i'm probably gonna upload their second album "in the library of horrific events."  although having said that, the next 4 or 5 days are gonna be HECTIC AS FUCK for me with university final project work, so it could be nearly a week before i find the time to get any reasonable amount of stuff uploaded.

At the risk of making myself terribly unpopular on this forum...

...Wait, I can only think of two people that like me anyway.

Never mind.

The new Gallows record, people. It's astonishing. I don't care about any lack of credibility, it's like a hardcore version of Modern Life Is Rubbish, and I most definitely mean that as a compliment. 'Vultures (Acts I and II)' alone is one of the finest pieces of music I've ever heard, it's simply magnificent. The record is complete conceptually, but still packed with great songs. Honestly I didn't think they could come up with a better record than the first album, but they have. Even the lyrics - always their weakest point - are better this time around. The impression I get is that they only have one record left in them, but I can't wait to see what it's like.

Re: Refused - I think that Shape did end up becoming more post-hardcore than it was hardcore, but it's still one of the most perfect albums ever made. I didn't like Discontent as much, seemed a bit more metal to me.

Re: Dillinger - Love these guys, but I seem to be the only person whose favourite record is the new one. No love for the jazzy brilliance of 'Mouth Of Ghosts'?

Re: Million Dead - Yeah, I'm thinking I might have to just download Song To Ruin after all. And honestly, anyone who's ever worked in office will identify perfectly with air conditioning line, I know I did.

i'm intrigued to check out that gallows record - i thought the first was pretty good, but just overhyped to a ridiculous level.  apparently they covered "if credit's what matters i'll take credit" by hot snakes too, which i need to hear!

and yeah, i love the newest dillinger record, but then again, i LOVE faith no more and quite like nine inch nails - and those two bands seem to have been a big influence on their last two records.  the only dillinger i haven't heard yet is the self-titled, and i've liked all of the rest.

i have to say, misery signal's first album was their best

When Of Malice... did come out, I slobbered all over it. Definitely an amazing debut record. But in terms of how much they've grown, Controller is pretty amazing too. They've totally transcended just being labeled a hardcore band, which I love. And I think Karl is a way better vocalist.

This is considered hardcore?  Not that I don’t like it; I do.  But it sounds like Meshuggah, which I'd think puts them more in the math-metal range than in hardcore.
Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: Harun on 04 May 2009, 07:51
yeah, they're definitely not a typical hardcore band. Some (retarded) critics have (retardely) labeled them as deathcore, which is a label I hate, and is completely inaccurate. Their second most recent album, The Dead Walk, definitely started incorporating lots and lots of Meshuggah influence. But given their overall sound, I think they are definitely still a hardcore band. Their album before The Dead Walk, 3750, is pretty straight-laced hardcore.

^I see you changed them to not being hardcore to math-metal. They definitely still have lots of hardcore elements in their sound still (gang shouts, breakdowns, fast rolling double bass drum/guitar parts). But also given their mathy tendencies a la Meshuggah, I think they could be labeled as math-hardcore rather than math-metal. Dillinger is more math-metal.

Sadly now-defunct purveyors of quality atmospheric hardcore/metalcore, who claimed to be heavily influenced by Botch, and also by Mark Z. Danielewski's novel "House of Leaves," the main character of which the band are named after.  This is their second album, which strikes a good balance between the more tech-metal leanings of their debut "The Repercussions of a Badly Planned Suicide," and the more straight-ahead hardcore leanings of their swansong "No Tears for the Creatures."

Always more of a post-hardcore/rock band than a hardcore band, but still, Hot Water Music are one of those bands that manages to be hugely passionate without ever being preachy, whilst also making some incredibly original music.  This is probably their released that's closest to being straight up hardcore, but it still owes a lot to the likes of Fugazi.

Here's 3 songs (Can't remember if it's an actual EP or just a collection of songs that I had) by a band called Nicholson. My best friend and I listened to this shit for an entire summer one year in high school. Not really sure why cuz this would normally not be my type of music but for some reason, I still really enjoy listening to it.

I think this band was just a bunch of kids playing music and never put out a CD or anything. Their music is i guess Hardcore. It's very raw sounding. I think some of you may enjoy it actually. I think the song "A Light Spun Suggestion" is why I started listening to this band. The song is very unique.

I agree completely! When I was first getting into emo, I used to think Saetia was the fucking shit. And while I'm grateful for all the doors they opened for me, I just don't like Saetia that much anymore. I think both Hot Cross and Off Minor are way better than Saetia, with Off Minor being the best. Plus, Billy Werner's lyrics are pretty shit.

Hot Cross did some good stuff but they also had some questionable moments, and live they were really sloppy (at least late on anyway, never saw them in their early days). Off Minor were uniformly great, but there's something just a little special about Saetia's music. There's a raw edge there Off Minor never had (not they were really trying to mind you), so they'll always stay top of the pile for me if only just. Billy Werner's lyrics do leave a little to be desired though, I'm with you there, and I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the Sartre readings. They should have got down with the Foucault like Orchid.

As the cover for Content With Dying would imply, Chokehold are not messing about. Rage-filled vegan straight edge Canadian metalcore that brings it's anger to bare upon capitalism, sexism, religion, pro-lifers, work and modern culture in general. This isn't the slick metalcore of Botch and Converge, this is more lo-fi and chugging. They were probably too busy being angry to bother about anything else and really, technicality or production values would just get in the way here. It's at its best raw. In time-honoured hardcore tradition they also include lots of samples from some scary US preacher. Nice.

Land Speed Record by Husker Du was the first hadcore album, Nervous Breakdown was an EP.

HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT MAN, i'm from THAT BOSTON!!!  a guy i went to school with is in a band called Burning the Prospect with the old singer from Patient Zero, and they're signed to the afro-haired guy from napalm death's record label now!  i've actually seen patient zero live a few times, but i stopped going to those gigs, because the people who went got REALLY elitist, although i've heard that sorta mentality has died down of late (so i might check out a few gigs next time i'm home from uni).

you from Bost-hole too then?

Nah, I'm a Leeds boy. Boston's cultivated quite a reputation for itself though, I've heard from people who've played that the gigs down there are pretty crazy and I always had a massive love for Urko. I still say their split with Minute Manifesto is one of the best split LPs of all time. It's a real shame to hear about the elitism since I'd always heard Boston had a lot of nice people, Leeds has been accused of that a fair few times itself and not without some cause I think. Try not to let it keep you from the gigs though, the elitists usually decide they're "so over it" after a while and shove off never to be seen again so it's usually alright in the end. Burning The Prospect are pretty decent, although sometimes I think their d-beat is a bit unimaginative. They're definitely solid though, and they kick out a big sound.

Re: Have Heart - There's a lot of Bridge9 hardcore that I don't like, but I've heard nothing but good things about these guys. Since I dug that Defeater record so much, maybe this is the time for me to check them out.

Give them a try. Bridge 9 really isn't my kind of hardcore but I downloaded Have Heart's The Things They Carry on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised. It's pretty cheesy but then again so are American Nightmare and they were always fun. Glad I was never near the front at any of their gigs though, people would just get ridiculous when they played.

Burn It Down - "Let The Dead Bury The Dead"
Quote
One of the best shows I ever saw was Burn It Down with Zao in 2001, in a barn in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Halloween night. They played a rather angry mix of hardcore and metal, long before it was the thing to do. They didn't look like a metalcore band. Their singer Ryan Downey wore khakis and a button down shirt, not ironically either. They released a split with Racetraitor (who of course turned to shit but now make lots of money as members of Fall Out Boy) and went on to form the short-lived Equal Vision band Time In Malta. Check out their not-at-all-original but hells-of-awesome cover of Paint It Black.

Coma Eternal - I am the End

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?el3ykziwzwt
Members of the formidable metalcore band Nehemiah and (along with 7 Angels 7 Plagues) the midwest's seminal metalcore band End This Day went on to form Coma Eternal.  A short lived (as is probably best in the varying hardcore scenes) project that produced a four track EP.  Technical but still  approachable (often it sounds like the drums are off with the guitars but it all works out by the end of the phrase), the vocals carry the range that I think is best for metalcore: not too low and pig-ish (not that I mind that) and not too pterodactyl-y (not that I mind that).  This is probably, pound for pound, my favorite metalcore/hardcore recording of all time.

I also got to see By The Grace of God's last show at Krazyfest in Louisville, Kentucky.  They were on forever, and at one point the members from Endpoint all joined on stage for some tunes, and they played one Guilt song.  Pretty crazy stuff.

I saw Stretch Armstrong at that same festival with Drowningman and Dillinger Escape Plan. All great live bands.  I'm not sure if that festival is still around, or if it is still put on in the same vein, but it was great.  All indie rock and Hardcore bands randomly playing one right after the other and sticking around the whole three days to walk around and talk with everybody and support each other.  To see two somewhat conflicting "scenes" collaborating with each other was pretty cool. 

Re: Quicksand.  I'm not sure that's hardcore, but frankly I don't care.  That band is fucking amazing.  Also, if you put Quicksand in here, I think it's fair to mention Season to Risk's "In a Perfect World."  So...Fucking...Good.

Oh man, I always loved Stretch Arm Strong. I saw them live a bunch of times, and every time they just looked so damn happy to be on stage, it made me smile.

Guy from The Red Chord is the same way, which is kind of funny given how tough and mean his band sounds. I'm a big fan of hardcore and metal bands that have the balls to admit they're actually having fun.

I always thought Walter Schreifels' career was one of constant decline. Walking Concert were awful, Rival Schools were bad, Quicksand were OK, Project X were fun, Youth of Today were pretty shit hot and Gorilla Biscuits were almighty. If this continues presumably he will eventually release the worst record known to humanity. So no, you're not alone.

I'll stick a fiver on that. After all, this is subsequent to him buying into the whole hardcore reunions crap (bands really need to knock this shit off immediately, I do not want to see you play decades-old songs for cash thanks. It is only acceptable if you're doing benefit gigs like Kid Dynamite and Unbroken) so it could be the one.

Re: Have Heart - There's a lot of Bridge9 hardcore that I don't like, but I've heard nothing but good things about these guys. Since I dug that Defeater record so much, maybe this is the time for me to check them out.

Give them a try. Bridge 9 really isn't my kind of hardcore but I downloaded Have Heart's The Things They Carry on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised. It's pretty cheesy but then again so are American Nightmare and they were always fun. Glad I was never near the front at any of their gigs though, people would just get ridiculous when they played.

Gave this one a listen last night, not bad at all. definitely the vein of hardcore I like. Before I can commit to saying I dig this band, I'll have to check out their lyrics, but I'm definitely into what I've heard so far.

Also on Bridge 9 - I don't have any of their music myself, but Ceremony is easily one of the most amazingly violent bands I have ever seen. I caught them last month on their tour with Pulling Teeth, Converge, Coliseum, and Rise & Fall (Holy SHIT was that an awesome lineup) and they blew my mind. If anyone has their "Violence Violence" LP handy, you should post it.

some icelandic hardcore for you
(http://www.punknews.org/images/covers/i_adapt-chainlike_burden.jpg)
I Adapt - Chainlike Burden
Quote
I Adapt is a harsh Icelandic outfit that, if symbolic of the entire country's hardcore scene, proves they're representing one of the more impressive and progressive "communities."

While I'm sure it's purely coincidental (in all fairness, the band have been around since 2000), Chainlike Burden bears similarities to the massive boldness of November Coming Fire, the forward-thinking angularity of Achilles, the metallic crunch of the Hope Conspiracy and vocal traits from all three. Throughout the album's course, I Adapt continually provide dynamic, textured songs that often feature traditional tempos and an incredible restraint within the same song. Never is there a lacakadasical 1-2 fuck you, but the band band manage some truly angry and fast-paced moments.

Chainlike Burden seems to start recycling some ideas by its second half, and therefore it's a lot more interesting during its early portions. However, none of it is necessarily bad, and it takes out the album to a close in good enough fashion.

This is a surprisingly good effort though, with lots of similarities to some other accomplished bands while retaining its own identity. I Adapt's already been around for seven years, a decent amount of time for someone playing this music -- hopefully they stick around twice as long and put out some really groundbreaking records, since it seems they've got the potential.

Mínus - Jesus Christ Bobby
Quote
In theory, this is how hardcore should sound: progressive. Iceland's Minus utilizes various elements and angles to create a diverse and unique album with Jesus Christ Bobby. Such elements include electronics (the voice manipulation stuff is awesome), jazzy guitar progressions, brutally heavy guitar tones, and even an acoustic number. The vocals are screamed and raspy, sounding like everyone but similar to no one. Another worthwhile appreciation is the complete lack of tight editing, with many tracks closing with background noises and not sounding clean whatsoever. But more power to Minus for such tricks; it just makes them all the more punk rock. Following very much in the footsteps of the late, semi-great Refused, Minus seeks to do what the original intention of hardcore set out to be: mess with people's conceptions of music and tear it up. Toward the end of Jesus Christ Bobby, things start to drag a tad, but, all in all, for a band with a theory of creating "grossly beautiful" music, they do just that.

Gavin Portland - Views of Distant Towns
Quote
Somewhere deep in the back of my mind resonates a confused tone repeating one word: Iceland. Yes, it's that distant island state somewhere up north, so remote and small that you hardly ever notice any news from there, or mention it in your geography discussions. Staying true to their image of a tightly knit society, the Icelandic music scene is vibrant but ultimately unknown to the outside world, and from that confined scene springs Gavin Portland, an awesome post-hardcore act whose music sounds like time had literally stood still for the last ten or fifteen years.

Their debut album "Views Of Distant Towns" brings nostalgia into mind of times when music was full of honesty, hardcore bands were fierce and stayed true to their origins. Songs like "The Yesterday Code" sound remotely like something Shai Hulud could have written during their early years - they are slow to mid-tempo, feature extended chord progressions and stupendous crescendos and buildups, but aren't excessive in breakdowns and beatdowns like the modern hardcore bands, in fact there hardly are any. The music keeps building up but instead of releasing the massive energy congregrated throughout a song in a breakdown, the band loosely withholds it in their sound and just end songs with dissonance instead, thus exploring a refreshing angle on hardcore. The vocalist's soaring voice is fierce and ravaging, drawing chills from your back as his slowly approaches a state of insanity on each track, but particularly on "Breathing Is Hard Work" and on "Watch Out For The Bears", where the band experiments the most with their harsh post-hardcore sound. Its slowly developing aggression pauses just before two minutes have gone past and is replaced with quietly echoing chords and slates of clean singing full of melancholy and restrained desperation - it all wouldn't be entirely out of place on a mid 90s Fugazi album.

"Views Of Distant Towns" is an aggressive piece of post-hardcore with plenty of soul and heart. It doesn't need to rise up to in-your-face aggressiveness levels to demonstrate it, the restrained and fierce vocals and the carefully thought out riffs do it instead, although the final track "With A White Picket Fence" does get a stranglehold of your neck. It's the kind of album that we need in 2007, to demonstrate that sounding trendy isn't important as long as you are true to your origins. Without further due, I present you the most exciting band from Iceland in a long, long time.

Never really got into Minus, I've got Jesus Christ Bobby but for some reason it leaves me cold. They're good at what they do though, technically speaking it's all well put together. Well done Iceland. You are small, but you are good at the 'core.

The final recordings of Orchid. These nineteen tracks are probably the best songs that Orchid ever recorded. Their sound has been honed and defined, and the recording perfectly captures Orchid's diverse combination of arty sensibilities, heartfelt emotive song writing, Mohinder-esque drumming, frantic precision, controlled mayhem, and chaotic adrenaline. An excellent record that even surpasses their previous releases. Definitely Orchid's opus.

to throw in my two penn'orth on the walter schreifels issue, i reckon quicksand's "slip" is easily the best thing he's been involved with (tied with hot water music's "no division," which he produced and did backing vocals on).

also, for anyone who likes that I Adapt record that Alli posted up there, i've quoted this direct from the mediaf!re thread, which i uploaded a few weeks ago:

hows about a bit of icelandic melodic hardcore punk from 2003.  i'm pretty sure this is out of print - i don't have a hard copy myself, only ripped mp3s from a CDR that a mate of mine copied from his friend who owns the album.  i've only ever seen it at the band's gigs (i don't even know if they're still together), and at a second-hand cd market stall (would have bought it but i was skint at the time).  so yeah, pretty rare. 

reasonably good sound quality and some fucking awesome music.  "sparks" and "i wish" in particular are pretty impressive.

'Six Feet Under' from that album is basically distilled mosh. The whole thing is utterly brilliant though, and even has one of my favourite hardcore things on it which is when bands do songs about how awesome hardcore is. I never get bored of that. The lyrics in general are of a high quality, nice mix of the political and personal.

Sadly, they aren't still together. Called it quits a year or so ago.

BUMP FOR PAGENINETYNINE!

Quote from: Reptilian Records
Page 99. Five years. Three continents. 300+ shows. 14 records. Countless members. Too many fucking memories. Hailing from the relatively tiny burg of Sterling, Virginia, this group of audio terrorists blazed a path through punk rock in their time on this planet. As the band's words grew more cryptic, their music became even more brutal, leaving a legacy that holds to this day.

Page 99 was a band that was very special not only to Reptilian, but to thousands of fans. Their legacy lives on not only with addition releases on Magic Bullet, Robotic Empire and Happy Couples Never Last, but with the spawn of Page 99: bands like Mannequin, Forensics, and the Hissing Choir.
Pg.99 is one of those bands that reminds me why I love music in the first place. They were raw, angry, visceral, sometimes fucking terrifying...and they did it with passion. I wish I had gotten a chance to see them live, but I don't think that a band with that level of energy could have done anything but end almost as quickly as it started.

All three of these fantastic records:

Thanks for the pg.99 stuff!  I've been looking for their stuff for ages, seems it's mostly out of print :(


Here's three albums of dark, brooding hardcore stuff:


November Coming Fire - "Dungeness"

(http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/1254/novembercomingfiredunge.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?mtyqumwetzd
Naming their band after a Danzig song, and their album after the most grim location one could wish to see (a barren headland in the southeast of England, consisting of a large shingle beach, a road, a powerstation, and a few driftwood shacks), it's obvious from the start that November Coming Fire aren't going to be all sunshine, kittens and lollipops.  "Dungeness" combines the hardcore rage of Converge with the atmospheres and dark, ominous chord progressions of post-metal, and to great effect.  If they hadn't broken up shortly after its release, these guys would be leading the UK underground right now.



Planes Mistaken for Stars - "Up in Them Guts"

(http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/8742/planesupinthemguts.gif)

http://www.mediaf!re.com/?w2o2nzaty4n
Whiskey-soaked, bleak-as-you-like, heavy post-hardcore.  The absolutely oppressive "life-is-fucked" attitude and atmosphere is present on all their albums, but none more so than this, in my opinion their best.  Strangely, despite the downbeat tone of their music, I briefly met Gared O'Donnell, the vocalist, and he's a proper cheerful, friendly bloke.  Which I guess makes it even more impressive that he's able to conjure up such a shitstorm of sheer doominess on record.



Plate Six - "Anthems for a New Republic"

I actually bought this off the back of a pretty vague, but very positive review I read in a magazine, and the fact that it has cool artwork and was going for ONE PENNY on amazon.  Kinda hard to get into to start with, and I'll admit I only very occasionally listen to it, but when I'm in the right mood, it's great.  Sounds like Fugazi on downers, playing inside a cement mixer.

Do you have the followup to that Planes record, "Mercy?" SOOOOO good..
Regarding Pg.99, I also have the split they did with Majority Rule and the Singles comp that compiles all their vinyl, split releases, demos, and other fun stuff. It's basically everything that wasn't on either of the three I already uploaded or their other full length Doc. #(9?). Give me a day, and I'll upload that as well.

Basically, I've been a fan of everything that has come from that scene. City Of Caterpillar was amazing; Brandon from Pg.99 started it w/ members of Orchid I believe. Pygmy Lush is crazy good. Malady and Corn On Macabre too...holy shit, so many good bands from that era.

yeah i've got mercy, it's probably my joint favourite planes release.  tbh though, i like pretty much everything they've done, although "fuck with fire" is a bit weird.  strange production and sorta transitions between the emo older stuff and darker newer stuff, so i find it hard to get into.  but they released a comp of all the pre-fuck with fire stuff recently, and it's pretty badass too (not least because of the several black flag covers on it!)

and yeah, that other pg.99 stuff would be awesome mate!  i really like the city of caterpillar record too, it really does seem like that was a great era.  shame most of the stuff from it is out of print or hard to find now  :|

Although it may not work out for you with international shipping, customs, and all that other nonsense, pretty much all the Pg.99 and related stuff I own, I've bought used through Amazon. I actually just bought Pg.99's Document #7 right after posting here, so now my collection will be complete.

You're from the UK, right? Looks like there's a used copy of Doc#8 (their best one) going for £7.72 on AmazonUK if you're looking to buy. Other than that, yeah, it's all OOP now, so best of luck. I'm happy to share what I've got, but here's something I hope will help if you're looking for the real thing.

Doc. #8 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Document-8-pg-99/dp/B000A6CKUM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1242414980&sr=8-1)

Doc. 8 is the easy one to find...it's the earlier ones that are a bitch. I got lucky and found Doc. 7 on CD for 15 bucks; usually on Amazon, used copies are upwards of $50. Singles is definitely still available, and well worth the price.



Pygmy Lush is crazy good.

Awesome! I'm curious to know whether they play all the softer stuff from Mount Hope, or throw in some of the crazy shit from the first record. You will of course give us a report, yes?

I upped this back in the MF thread back in January, but it kinda ties in nicely with the pg.99 stuff, so i figured i'd do the old copy-and-paste one-two:

Quote
Circle Takes the Square - "As the Roots Undo"  (2004)

(http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/7434/cttsatrurt4.jpg)

Yes, the first and foremost of the genres one might use to describe CTTS would be screamo, but they're far from the angst-ridden, asymmetrically-fringed bollocks which passes for it most of the time.  As the Roots Undo is an epic, bleak, violent, atmospheric album, gripping from start to finish.  It's also got a pretty indepth concept behind it, explained in the liner notes:

Quote
In a nutshell the concept behind the songs was to document the different points on a path to self-realization. In our interpretation of this journey, the wanderer ends up essentially in the same place that he or she began, if not humbled and even more overwhelmed. In a sense the ending is somewhat tragic, but without experiencing all of the lows how can anyone ever appreciate the amazing subtleties that this world has to offer? And so, if the search for beauty and understanding is cyclical and unending, then at least we'll never stop experiencing the thrill of the hunt...

Having said that, the album is amazing regardless of whether or not you try and follow the concept.  And if you like it, it's definitely worth picking up the CD, as the packaging is intricate and pretty kickass.

upping a few other things atm that i'll add once they're done...

EDIT:  ...and they're done!

Snapcase - "End Transmission"

Really weird experimental hardcore - it's got a VERY slight nu-metal twist to some of the guitar riffs, but not enough that you should be put off.  A very atmospheric record with lots of strange interludes; I found it took several listens to get into, but once it clicked, it was instantly fucking awesome.



Hour of the Wolf - "Waste Makes Waste" EP

These guys kinda sound like Black Flag stabbed The Misfits, and then their corpses reanimated and chased them down a long alleyway, crashing into every trash can on the way.  In other words, BADASS.  I saw them live at The Fest last year, and frankly, they're insane... Which made for a BRILLIANT set.  The great thing about this EP is that it actually captures their live energy perfectly!

That Snapcase record is one of my favorite hardcore records ever, also my favorite Snapcase record.
CTTS...my friends The Pax Cecilia played a show with them at a firehall once and it was honestly one of the best shows I've ever seen. The fuckers need to finally get around to releasing a followup to As The Roots Undo though; they've been touring that album for 5 years now!

Post by: spoon_of_grimbo on 16 May 2009, 14:42
they had a blog about the recording of the follow up, and a song called "ritual of names" played live on youtube, but that was about a year ago and there's been nothing since.  i'm pretty confident that when they DO come out with another album it'll be an absolute killer.  and the pax cecilia are fucking EPIC!  i got a copy of "blessed are the bonds" back when they were giving those away, and it's amazing.  tell them they need to do a UK tour!

Grimbo, if you look in the album credits to Blessed Are The Bonds, look at the credits for "the Water Song" and "the Tomb Song" - it'll say something like "Trombone by William 'Agent' James"...

That's me!!

My old band used to play shows with these guys all the time...they're some of my very best friends from that era.

OK guys, this is the best thread in a long time. I am basically constantly downloading.

Anyone who likes As The Roots Undo would do well to check out the City Of Caterpillar LP City Of Caterpillar. Features some Pg.99 dudes making more atmospheric and haunted sounding music; imagine Pg.99 meets Godspeed You! Black Emperor. I'm at my folk's place until tomorrow, so Grimbo if you have this, go ahead and upload it...otherwise I'll get it when I get back to my place.

damn, i'm just about to hit the sack and having a quick skim of the forums before i do so.  if i'm online tmrw and you've not yet posted it, i'll up it.  i'll probably throw up some In Pieces too (they're a bit more post-hardcore than hardcore, but "Lions Write History" has the same creepy mood to much of it that "As the Roots Undo" has, so if you enjoy ATRU, there's a fair chance you'd get something out of it).  and since (unless i've not noticed...) no-one's upped Botch's "We Are the Romans" yet, i'll do that too.  the reason i'm actually typing all this now is so i remember to do it when i check the boards tmrw, because i have a shit memory... :roll:

R.A.M.B.O. kick out fast, thrashing and highly political hardcore. They also have a great sense of humour, recommending using walls of death against police, calling for revenge for the anarchy moose and reminding us we should all rock with Kropotkin. It's hard to resist a band that makes anarchy sound so much damn fun, and who even get slagged off on their own record by the guy that does Jade Tree. He does guest vocals on Honorable Discharge and calls them assholes for kicking him out of the band. The moshtrocity!

To be had here:

Condition by Daniel Striped Tiger. Some cool dudes from Boston that are pretty much constantly fine tuning their sound with every new release. They tour with bands as disparate as fellow Massachusetts stalwarts Ampere and pop-punk bands like Teenage Cool Kids.

Fathers and Sons by Sinaloa. Another bunch of cool dudes from Massachusetts carrying the 90's DIY torch. I am very fond of this band. They've released a bunch of splits with awesome bands including the aforementioned Daniel Striped Tiger and Ampere, but also Wolves and Life At These Speeds.

The Moon is a Dead World  by Gospel. I have actually only recently come around to this album, but I am pretty jazzed about it now. Here is a description from the Level Plane site that I think sums them up really well: "Adam Dooling, Sean Miller, Vincent Roseboom and Jon Pastir forgo convention to create a drunken cantor that is as primitive as it is progressive". These dudes were tragically short-lived and this is their only album. They might have some compilation songs or 7"s that I am unaware of, though.

Self Made Maps by Stop It!! with a bonus 7 song demo. Another band started by a former member of City of Caterpillar. All I have to say about these guys is, "YEEEEEAH!". Also, they have a pretty happenin' rhythm section.

This is a most excellent release. Actually, damn near everything that Level Plane Records has had a hand in has been fantastic. If you told me before I heard this one that "progressive/post-hardcore with a synth!" would be good, I might not have believed you, but there's not a bad song on this record. Also, Kurt Ballou from Converge recorded this, so you know it has a gritty, raw sound to it...I honestly think that this is one of his best sounding records - including Converge's own releases. I don't know of any unreleased material by these guys; I know there's nothing on the Level Plane comp. That seems to be par for the course though, when it comes to LP roster bands - put out one blisteringly awesome but under-recieved record, then disappear.

1999-2002 was a simply outstanding period for hardcore. Without putting any thought into it whatsoever, I can think of:

Botch - We Are The Romans
Converge - Jane Doe
Dillinger Escape Plan - Calculating Infinity
Poison The Well - Tear From The Red
.hopesfall. - The Satellite Years
Zao - Liberate Te Ex Inferis

all of which were hugely influential on their respective scenes. If I scroll through my collection by release year, I can probably add 10 more records that, if there were such a thing as a hardcore "hall of fame," would deserve to be there. I'm a big fan of some of what's coming out now too, but from '99-'02 I consider the Golden Years, and it makes me all happy and nostalgiac.

EDIT-

Great band from Denmark
The Psyke Project - Daikini
(http://www.punkrockcds.com/images/PsykeProject-Daikini.jpg)
Quote
What the hell!? Why am I only now hearing about this band? These fuckers hail from Denmark, and here on their second full-length they unload track after track of relentlessly doomy pummelings the likes of which should please early fans of Isis who became increasingly dismayed when the band mellowed out. Because if there's one thing this Danish five-piece does not do, it's mellow out! I'm talking 14 tracks of absolutely crushing material chock full of massively intense rhythmic surges, loads of caustic textures and high contrast tempo changes, punishing atmospheric dissonance, and some of the most over the top and venomous vocal screaming you'll ever encounter. The first handful of tracks actually blows by surprisingly quickly, as the much longer "Dark Halls Red Floors" (8:42) changes things up with some jangly, lightly distorted chords that eventually dive headfirst into one of the most chugging midpaced runs of the disc three minutes in - an approach which returns to a sparser degree towards the end of the song to keep the dynamics shifting fluidly. Meanwhile, "Som Soldater" injects a little more melody and energy into its constantly dissonant twists and turns, while another longer cut in "Desert Flower" makes a return to clean guitars during the intro - which is the most laidback moment of the disc at the time it arrives. Of course, again, nearly three minutes into it you're in for a completely sick wave of churning distortion and bitter vocal diatribes, so they never restrain themselves for long. That is, until the almost entirely instrumental 14-minute "Qualia" opens with its sparse ambient guitar textures and subtle electronic noises that hint at a frantic build before unexpectedly dropping black to mangled clean riffs and simple drum patterns - where the gradual rise to full blown distortion isn't complete until nearly eight minutes in! I could argue that the noisiness and sheer length of this track make it a nonessential inclusion as compared to how masterful some of the other material is, but I suppose it does change things up a bit prior to the three-part closer, "Note"; which kicks off with the energetic and memorable blasts of "Note 1 - Darling", which actually boast some of the finest moments of the disc. The entire affair was recorded live over the course of six days, but you'd never guess it from as good as it sounds. I don't know who recorded it, but this is the best sounding record to have ever come from Antfarm Studio, I can tell you that right now. Seriously, it sounds damn near perfect for what the band is doing. The mix is clear and lets each instrument hold its own space and textures but of course it's massively dense and cohesive as well. The drums are totally natural and bash away with uncompromising force, the bass pulses away right in the center of the mix, and then guitars and vocals do most of the dirtywork. The guitars are so fucking oppressive that I love it: Be it searing abrasive picking patterns and noisy riffing or monumentally crushing palm-muting rhythms or overbearing power chords, the guitar tone is one of the best I've ever heard for this niche of music. And the same goes for the vocals, as the texture and clarity perfectly accentuate the over the top intensity of the performance and highlight the more unique attributes of the guy's voice. Great, great work across the board there. The layout also looks awesome, printed entirely with a matte finish and using nothing but interesting sketches and handwritten text throughout. Admittedly this makes for a tricky read (I actually had to get the tracklist online as I had a hell of a time trying to get the correct titles off of the back cover), but the aesthetic value is totally worth it. Lyrics aren't really included, just little snippets here and there amidst the drawings, but you've gotta assume it ain't pretty, I mean... this shit's just too bleak and oppressive for anything less. The only "downfall" here, and I do mean only, is that the record is just entirely too long, so admittedly some of the more chaotic and frantic elements of the songwriting certainly wear you out as a result. I mean, 14 tracks is heavy-handed as it is, but when most of those tracks average four minutes and a handful top seven or more? Yeah, you're in for one marathon of a listening session. Just to put that in perspective, these guys could dump five songs and still have an hour-long full-length on their hands, so... that's definitely something for them to consider in the future in terms of maximizing the overwhelming power of their approach without brutalizing the listener to death, because I have to confess that there are a couple of songs herein that don't quite make the cut when held against massive powerhouses such as "Dark Halls Red Floors" (among others). But I can very sincerely and respectfully state that there is simply no fucking way that a band of this level of quality and ferocity could ever come from anywhere but Europe. Plain and simple. If you want fucking heavy, both literally and figuratively, this is it. This is fucking it. Seriously, this is one of those rare instances where all of the typical "skull-crushing", "paint-peeling", "face-ripping", "ear-shredding" analogies do indeed apply. That this band hasn't been scooped up or even so much as namedropped by anyone of prominence in the US yet (sans the awesome It's a Trap website, who turned me onto the band) is a damn fucking shame, so if you're into this kind of thing, don't sleep on these cats any longer. A striking album, for sure.

Poison The Well - Tear From The Red

i don't get why this one's always quoted as their best.  i've always preferred "the opposite of september."  mainly for the batshit-insane drumming.

I don't necessarily think it's their best one either...actually, to be honest I am quite the fan of Versions, which puts me in with roughly .000000000004% of PtW fans, most of whom hated that album. Opposite Of December is generally considered Poison The Well's best album, but Tear From The Red I think had more significant influence on the scene as a whole. It could easily be argued that that record paved the way for all other melodic hardcore to follow, and look at how many bands are doing that "scream-sing-scream" routine now.

EDIT FOR MUSICKS!
Lots of people putting up some fresh new stuff here, so I'm gonna throw up a few classics over my next few posts. If you do not already have these in your collection, you must:

I'm gonna post this here since I don't think anyone actually reads the video thread

http://stokingtheroots.com/2009/03/27/pansori/

This is a band called Pansori. They play mostly post-rock, but they have some pretty fuckin' punx moments and even verge on the intensity of emo violence. They're a lot like Envy, but with more quiet parts and the punx parts are obviously quite more intense. They share members with Army of Kashyyk, another Baltimore band that plays emo shit (who sadly just broke up WAHHHHHH) and they were actually supposed to be the ones who played this set. But my god, Pansori is so fucking good. They had a demo put out that just hit the internets yesterday that i'll post as soon as I hear it, but this should be the song on it. I was also at this show! Those with a good eye should be able to figure out where I am.

yeah anyway tl;dr Pansori is boss.

You weren't kidding, this is great! I really like the violin and the drumming, he doesn't so much build things up as threaten some scathing screamo throughout the quieter parts. In fact, I think I like this band more than Envy. They're good and all but they always felt like they lacked a little something, and this band have a ferocity that's really appealing. Also, that looks like an awesome place to see a gig. Reminds me of the cellar I saw Towers in.

EDIT 2:  Mediafire finally decided to work!  So here is the compilation that defined the NYHC sound in the late 80s.  Really, this album is fucking awesome.

Alright, here's a few more.

Agnostic Front  To Be Continued

Much like Bad Brains or 7 Seconds, Agnostic Front tends to release and re-release a lot of the same songs in slightly different versions.   This 'Best Of' Album is a very good sampling of their stuff from 86ish - 92ish.  A lot of "hardcore purists" really hated One Voice when it came out in 92 as being too metal, however, in perspective, listening to the songs mixed in with their earlier work, it all fits really well.   A good introduction to AF, who really are, in many ways, the Godfathers of New York Hardcore.

Hand in hand with Agnostic Front, the Cro-Mags helped redefine the sound of Hardcore and put New York on the map as a stronghold of hardcore music.  There is not an ounce of bullshit or poseur about these fucking cats.  I love these guys.   Well before their groundbreaking Age of Quarrel album was released, I used to have this Cro-Mags cassette tape that was probably the 50th generation copy of their demo.  Although it wasn't exactly what I'm posting here, (who the fuck knows what people omitted or re-arranged as they were copying tapes) it had some of the same versions of the songs as we have here.   For no other reasons than it takes me back to the early days, I'm giving you their Before the Quarrel demo.

Finally, a band that never went as far as they should have... the amazing Breakdown.  Fuck these guys are good.  Sick People has got to be one of the best Hardcore songs ever written (though the version on the compilation album I posted earlier is better than the demo version).   Another demo because back then there wasn't really any commercial viability to these bands and it was almost all DIY.   So what may lack in sound quality of these earlier hardcore cuts, is more than made up for in passion.

I dunno, I always thought the Cro-Mags had some serious bullshit going on with that well dodgy insert to The Age Of Quarrel. Nevertheless, they did do some great music.

In honour of their upcoming UK gigs here is some more Ghostlimb. The album grimbo posted a page or so back is probably better but this is still great, more raging hardcore from these guys who share members with Graf Orlock. Their gig together is going to be ridiculously good.

Cro-Mags got really weird and kind of shitty post Age of Quarrel, no doubt.   They fell apart, got back together, fell apart again (on tour!) and went back and forth between being hardcore and being metal, but damn...  Their early stuff was amazing.

I saw them once when John Bloodclot had quit in the middle of the tour, so Harley was singing and his brother (I think it was his brother) had been introduced as having just gotten out of jail, played flute.   No shit, flute, on stage with the Cro-Mags.   KrishnaCore got weird as fuck sometimes.   :laugh:

They did a cover of Hey Joe only it was Hey John and the lyrics were "Where you going with that bald spot on your head" as Harley had started referring to Bloodclot as Baldspot.  Fucking comedy gold I tell you!

A good introduction to AF, who really are, in many ways, the Godfathers of New York Hardcore.

Vinny Stigma opened for Dropkick Murphys when I saw them in March, and let us know that last statement at least SEVENTEEN THOUSAND TIMES. I wanted to dive off the balcony and tackle his annoying, old ass.

Amazing! I'm not averse to flute in hardcore (yeah, I really liked Submission Hold) but in the Cro-Mags... oh dear. Really wish I'd seen that, just for the hilarity.

Anyone know if that rumour that he was so shit in the early days of AF that they didn't allow him to plug his guitar in on stage is true? I kind of hope it is.

Yeah, nobody ever said any of the New York bands are humble.

So, to get away from New York for a minute and back to my hometown of D.C.  (We're going to conveniently ignore the fact that they moved to NY, okay?)  Here is the Bad Brain's Rock For Light

This is probably the most under appreciated/least listened to album of the classic Bad Brains era.  Personally, I think it's phenomenal, but it tends to get overshadowed by I Against I and the live album that followed it.  It was produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars, believe it or not, and contains pretty much everything you've already heard on the ROIR tapes, though it is much more polished and professional.  The band was really coming into their own at this time and their confidence shows.  There's also a few real ass-kickers in here that aren't found anywhere else.

Matt and Joby from the Bronx, Tony who played on the Distillers' last album, and Vince and Dave (Jr.) Hidalgo from Los Fuckin' Lobos (yeah, seriously, the La Bamba guys!), playing loose limbed, summery hardcore with a bit of a old-school punk vibe.  Really really good, like a slightly more melodic take on the first Bronx album.

anyways their lp is out on the internet, it is pretty good! it's on a chuglife

It basically just sounds like Das Oath mk.2. That is alright though since Das Oath were amazing, I'm perfectly happy to have more of the same. Unavoidable nerd moment: Mark McCoy wasn't in Los Crudos, that was Martin Sorrondeguy now of Limp Wrist.

Drive like jehu is awesome though.

I also FUCKING loved as the roots undo. Seriously one of my new favourite albums.

Small aside since it just came up on my random play, do the guys from Circle Takes The Square do guest vocals on 65 Days of Static's song "the conspiracy of seeds"  :-o

that seems to be everyone's first reaction to ATRU;  it really hits you for six the first time doesn't it? 

and yeah, that's kathy and drew from CTTS on "conspiracy of seeds."  if it weren't for the fact that both of those bands take fucking FOREVER to make albums, i'd love to see a full-length collaboration, or at least an EP.

This is one hardcore band you should not miss.

Really pissed off kids from IOWA pouring out their souls in what to me is the best musical response to the Bush Administration. Too bad these guys broke up. One of the few punk/hardcore shows I've been to that made me feel alive again. I know that sounds mellow dramatic, but have you ever stepped out of a show and felt changed? Yeah... well this was one of those live shows for me. The album was recorded and mastered by Kurt Ballou (Converge guitarist) at his God City Studios so the sound is fantastic. Whether you're a new school kung fu fighter circle pitter or an old school finger pointing stage diver, get ready to get pumped to tear things down and fuck shit up.

Enjoy.

Around the turn of the century UK hardcore was ridiculously good. I'm not sure how much international recognition bands like Canvas, HHH, Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon, Stalingrad, Stand, Army Of Flying Robots, Imbalance and Orrin De Forest got but if there's any justice it was a lot. Probably the best record to come out of this fertile period was Fig. 4.0's Action Image Exchange. It sounds a bit like Dillinger Four, What Happens Next? and Kid Dynamite all mixed up in a Leeds car park but with more time changes. It's also probably the best melodic hardcore album of all time, and yes I am including Kid Dynamite in that. In the eight years since this record came out there's never been a period when I haven't had it in regular rotation and I doubt there ever will be.

More 20th anniversary goodness.   Because 1989 was a good year.  I got my first car (an 82 Toyota).  Had a no-stress job making pizza for a cool-as-hell local restaurant.  Spent most of the summer skating.   Good times.  I also went to my second Sick of it All show (Exodus opened) one Sunday afternoon.  They were kicking off their Blood, Sweat, and no Tears tour.  Yeah, about half the songs are on their seven inch, but man... this shit was "Fresh for 89, you suckas."    What a great fucking album.

If you enjoyed Gorilla Biscuits, this is CIV's complete discography.  Without getting into a ton of dramatic history, this is basically Gorilla Biscuits, minus one guy, with just a little bit of pop thrown in.

Occasionally. 

Some of the songs are still brutal, though, despite CIV getting on MTV and in video games.  Two parts because it's just a wee bit bigger (forty something songs) than 100 mbs total.

Finally, since we're now in the 90s anyway with CIV... Here's one of my favorite albums of all time.  The debut album (and a concept album at that) of Life of Agony.   I've always thought this was just a smidgen over produced (I really like raw, live sounding music) but still an incredible album.  If you want the truth, after 15 years I never listen to the spoken parts anymore, and think the back half of the album isn't quite as strong as the front... but I still love it.  Everyone should have this in their collection.

1988's Hardcore classic Step On It by Boston's own Slapshot.   I only saw these guys once in about 92 but it was a fucking unbelievable show.  About 200 of D.C.s most dedicated hardcore fans crammed into an upstairs club made for about 50.  Even smaller than the Safari and the original 930.  Very intimate venue, Choke was more part of the pit than singing on stage.

I have just about everything Slapshot released... at least, their good stuff.  They got kinda iffy in the late 90s.  I could do, say... Sudden Death Overtime next if anyone wants it.  Or maybe Live at SO36 if I can find the CD in my house (the joys of having a teenager who likes my music... she steals it) to rip.   Anyway:

Slapshot  Step On It

Please do keep uploading the old stuff, man! Some of us young'ins can do with the history lesson!

No upload because I don't have any of their stuff, but I saw Ceremony (http://www.myspace.com/ceremony) on tour with Converge a few months ago, and it was seriously the most chaotic, violent, and destructive thing I have ever witnessed. Epic hardcore.

Fine.  I'll try to throw some new (old) stuff up every day or so if it's getting a little love.   This stuff was the soundtrack to my youth, and now that I'm old and boring, I'm glad to be able to share it with a few people who appreciate it.

Alright ladies, here's another classic.

Much like Cro-Mags, everyone had their demo tape for-fucking-ever before they ever put a real album out.  And again, much like Cro-Mags, they put out a spectacular first album, and then a whole bunch of "WTF was that?  What happened to the band I loved?"   Now they're mostly a joke, but damn did they start out good.

From 1990, the self titled Biohazard

i think "harmony no harmony" is still pretty widely available on stuff like amazon.co.uk (that's where i got it, if i remember rightly), but "a song to ruin" is drastically out of print.  i actually emailed the record label and they've got no intention of re-releasing it yet.  i ripped mp3s off a mate's CD- he was savvy enough to get into the band earlier than me and bought it when it came out.  but yeah, frank's a pretty great lyricist.  i remember hearing "this air conditioned life has had me gasping for some reeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaal conversation" blaring out of the TV when the "breaking the back" video first started getting airtime and thinking "well, THAT's different!"  even his simpler style in his solo stuff is still full of cool wordplay.

HOLY FUCK GUYS, IT'S THE NEW GHOST OF A THOUSAND RECORD!!!  Seriously, while everyone was wanking over the new Gallows record, their old touring mates have been busy busting out a giant-bollocked slab of punk'n'roll-ish hardcore badassery.  Seriously, this could end up being my favourite record of '09.  "Fed to the Ocean" is one of the most viciously awesome tracks I've heard in a long time. 

For those who prefer lazy journalistic comparisons, think The Bronx (circa "I" and "II") and Refused having a fight with rusty knives.

Chris Colohan was seriously one of the most pissed off vocalists I've ever heard. Also, the best thing about Cursed musically is the fact that their guitarist did not use any distortion pedal or effects to get the tone that he used, he just turned the gain up on his amp and overloaded the fuck out of the signal going through the cab...and it sounds heavier than anything, ever.

I totally agree on Chris' vocals. Did you ever see them live? I saw em when they toured with From Ashes Rise and they played with equipment that looked like they threw it down the stairs and dragged it behind their car on the way to the gig... AND SOMEHOW IT WAS THE LOUDEST MOST BROOTAL SOUND I EVER EXPERIENCED LIVE.

I will miss Cursed dearly.

On one of the few trips I make back to this forum, I find this thread? Fucking fantastic. Thanks guys.

I have plenty I could upload but no bandwidth sadly.

I recommend everyone check out;

Nine - Lights Out/Killing Angels. - The first hardcore band I ever listened to and definitely one of the most underrated in my opinion. Hard to find due to the short name but with any luck someone will have one of their albums.

Integrity - Why haven't the been mentioned already? Seasons in the size of days is a damned good album and a  must listen.  Maybe not the best, but definitely pioneering.

Doomriders may be worth checking out if you haven't already heard them. I'm beginning to find them a bit tired but that's because I've listened to them too much.

Fucked Up - The Chemistry of Common Life - Best album of 08, no contest for me. Experimental hardcore band has horrific carcrash and are merged with Sonic Youth or possibly the Pixies. All turns out well.

Also, what's the story with everyone's avatars? I don't know this band...

Their other album (2004) was called My Heroes Have Always Killed Cowboys, so I think that's a good enough reason already..
But if you like Sonic Youth, I'd say go for it!

Akimbo is hardcore embossed with sludge and EPIC drumming  8-)

Hey homeslice, I don't mean to be puttin salt in the Kool Aid but this does not sound like Hardcore. It sounds like RATT. But if it holds a special nostalgic place in your heart, that's cool.

Post by: A Wet Helmet on 24 Jun 2009, 03:31
I will be the first to admit that the sound of what's being defined as hardcore has changed a lot in the last 30 years.  Personally, I think Minor Threat sounds like the Sex Pistols played on 78 RPM.  The guys just a few years older than me who grew up buying ice cream from Henry Garfield Rollins and hanging out with Ian would tell me I don't know what hardcore is.   I get it, I'm the old fuck talking about things that at best are marginally relevant.   

If you don't like where today's hardcore came from, that's fine.  Don't listen to it.   You can be pretty certain anything you ever see me post is going to be from say...  85-95 and it's going to sound a lot different than something released in the last 10-15 years.   But RATT?  Seriously, you're either just being a rude fuck or you don't know much about music.    If you don't want the history lesson, don't click on the link.

And I'm a young fuck who doesn't really get into any of the old hardcore stuff, but damn it if I don't love seeing the almost complete spectrum of hardcore represented in this thread.

I get highly annoyed with kids that look at bands like Norma Jean and think they're the most unique and original thing ever, but look at you confused when you mention Botch or Coalesce. I wax eloquent about the good old days of Pg.99/Orchid/Majority Rule. So I understand the attachment to the history of it. I say, even though I tend not to click on your links (personal preference and all), keep 'em coming!

Racetraitor - Burn The Idol Of The White Messiah

On the subject of Underdog, just because it isn't always fast doesn't mean it isn't hardcore. It's not like there haven't been recent bands to sound somewhat like that, Justice obviously loved a bit of Underdog. The reggae always put me off them myself, but I don't like reggae anyway so that's no surprise.

Also, large amounts of yes for Judge and Amanda Woodward. My mate reckons Bringin' It Down has the best intro of any hardcore song ever and is pretty much a textbook hardcore song all the way through. It's pretty hard to disagree with him really. Fats bits, chug, "you're drinkin' and you're smokin' and you say you feel fine *insert der ner ner on guitar*"... you can't go wrong.

Yo QC! How's your edge? If you're anything like me it's been buried under the patio for ten years under a pile of booze, nicotine and ketamine, but if there was ever a record to make you wish you were still a good edger this is it. Ten Yard Fight were part of the whole '97 youth crew revival along with In My Eyes and the vastly inferior Floorpunch who can get stuffed for fucking up the singer from By The Grace Of God for no good reason. Ten Yard Fight were old school as hell and in First And Ten wrote one of the great straight edge anthems, using American football as an amazingly ridiculous metaphor for losing/keeping your edge ("You turned in your helmet, fumbled the ball. You lost the edge man you're gonna fall!"). You'll never regret breaking edge as much as when these guys are telling you how badly you sold out and how you're not going to make it to the super bowl anymore (or if you're still holding the edge down, better about still rocking it). Recommended for anyone with a shred of "hardcore pride" left.

I reacquainted myself with an old school gem of a hardcore record over the weekend, and also bought their brand new one - so here's two Poison the Well records for the price of none!

First we have this:
(http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/1387/decembern.jpg)
Quote
Their first official full length "The Opposite Of December." Considered legendary in many circles. Containing such live staples as 'Artists Rendering Of Me,' 'Nerdy,'
and 'slice paper wrists. One of the first bands to combine breakdown-heavy hardcore with melodic singing. Hardcore fans (like myself!) too young to have enjoyed the 80's scene will remember this one fondly.

Then, released last week, we have:

Ten years, probably twice as many members later - brand new PtW full length "The Tropic Rot." They still got it...

Deathwish is hands down the best hardcore label in existence right now. Period. There's not a single band on that roster that doesn't deliver.

Also, those are all very good choices that you listed. I haven't picked up the new Coalesce record yet (payday tomorrow, fuck yes!) but the other two are solid. Bars is actually so much raw rock and roll, and Disfear is just friggin' Disfear.

Thanks. I also like Blacklisted, The Hope Conspiracy, Shai Hulud, and some mathy stuff like Botch. When I'm not listening to hardcore it's punk, metal or various combinations of the two :-P

Well, here are those albums:

I'm not going to leave these up very long, maybe a fortnight or so. Go and buy them if you like them.
*shrug* No one wanted them, oh well.

As requested by Grimbo here is the final album by Kneejerk, the band Frank Turner (Million Dead, solo) cut his teeth in. It's very patchy, as you'd expect since the band are about 18 and are clearly influenced by bands from the more experimental end of hardcore like Refused and Canvas (actually I think I might put some Canvas up next, Lost In Rock is something of a forgotten classic to my mind). Turner can't really pull off the singing parts very well and the lyrics are pretty teenage on occasion, I'll admit to wincing now and again when listening to this. For all that though there is some great moments of emo metallic hardcore, and it does have a real ramshackle charm to it.

Canvas - Lost In Rock
(Household Name, 2000)

Much like Refused, Leeds' Canvas liked to include electronics or instruments like violins and weren't afraid to mess around with what you'd expect from a hardcore band. The big difference is that Refused were never anywhere near this heavy. Canvas dealt in crushing metalcore that had been twisted and fucked with until it was morphed into sprawling, wailing epics (several songs clock in at over 5 minutes and two at over 10, impressive for a hardcore record). Imagine if Converge took a ton of drugs, listened to a shitload of prog, got themselves some electronic gubbins and relocated to West Yorkshire and you might have some idea what this record's all about. Members went on to do time in the likes of Beecher, Humanfly, Tigers, Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon and Born From Pain.

Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: a pack of wolves on 17 Jul 2009, 17:05
I'm guessing Andy Sutcliffe of Canvas was still in Beecher at that point, he left after not too long to focus on Humanfly with his brother John (Canvas' vocalist). Actually, you wouldn't care to throw up some Beecher would you? I never got into them back in the day, but my tastes have changed since then and I was probably too obsessed with bands like D.S.-13 and Voorhees to pay them any decent attention.

Also, listen to Canvas.

Hope you like it! I've got a few UK albums from around that era that were also doing (to me) interesting stuff with hardcore like Imbalance, Stalingrad, Humanfly (they've changed massively into a post-metal band now) etc that I can throw up if anyone's interested. A lot of them were on now-defunct labels like Armed With Anger and Hermit so probably aren't around to buy. I'm surprised the Canvas album is still kicking around!

well, the (frequently wrong) info section on amazon says that canvas album is on Metal Blade.  but if you're right and it's on household name, they're pretty good at keeping their releases in print (although they've let one of their finest, Howards Alias' "Beat Heart Beat" drop out of print recently  :-( ).  and it is obviously second hand, the one i'm buying, hence the cheapness of it.

i'm not sure if they're technically hardcore, but i might up the two eps and full-length by The Blueprint, a supergroup who were about in the first half of this decade, and featured members of earthtone9, consumed, and (i think) pitchshifter.

Interesting. I found a review for Lost In Rock that gives the release date as 2001 and the label as metal blade, so I'm guessing it got re-released since it's conspicuously absent from the Household Name store. You were right about them keeping things in print though, they're still selling Imbalance's debut, HHH's making changes (that I had no idea they'd ever re-issued, I presumed it had gone out of print after the Positive Outlook/Sakari release), Withdrawn, they've even got Hard To Swallow vinyl! And that Ensign/Fig 4.0 split where the production made it frankly unlistenable, but still.

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=8cedb1ce1ab29a957069484bded33bcdc4a3cd8703d3c929
The new additions are Life At The Speeds' self-titled record and Bright Calm Blue's Assymetry Set. Life At These Speeds play some pretty straight-forward, driving tunes but towards the end of the record they dial it back with a couple more sprawling numbers. Their guitar riffs get stuck in my head a lot.

Asymmetry Set is an album I think everybody should hear. They just have everything going on. Syncopated guitars and a tight-ass rhythm section that at times calls to mind early Q and Not U, really excellent spoken-shouted-screamed vocals paired with some pretty great lyrics, and keyboards! Sadly, after they released this album they kicked out the singer and went on to record a second album that was pretty much bullshit.

Hold on, all the jokes about Hot Topic imply that it sells clothes for teenagers with swooshed hair and Throwdown CDs. You mean America actually has so many crusts there is an entire chain dedicated to selling patches and vegan boots? Weird, but good I suppose since Discharge's Realities Of War is one of the best 7"es of all time, it's just raw power. I also appreciated their love for John Heartfield.

Disfear are good but I wouldn't go ranking them as the greatest d-beat band since Discharge. Japan's Bastard on the other hand make a pretty good case that they should be at the top of the pile. One of the guys from the (really good) Devoid of Faith has their excellent discography No Hope In Here up on his blog: http://truepunkmetal.blogspot.com/2009/07/bastard-no-hope-in-here-199.html

in the few punk scenes i've encountered (i'd hesitate to say "been part of" since i tended to avoid the name-dropping and one-upping and just went to see live music), i've generally found the patch-wearing, vegan-as-fuck, punker/crustier-than-thou types to be just as annoying, cliquey, image-obsessed, and elitist as the asymmetrical fringe brigade, only more violently so.  i say generally, as there have always been a few saving graces in the form of people who wear the associated clothes but aren't actually arseholes.

still, this doesn't have any bearing on whether or not the music itself is good, and i'd frankly love to hear me some discharge, as i've not heard much so far, so if anyone wants to throw some up here, that'd be awesome.

No, they play that really watered down kind of death metal. Would they be slam? Slam confuses me, I just know it involves Waking The Cadaver and various other bits of death metal I want no part of.

Oh yeah, crust punk is massively about image. I tend to find it's the younger ones that tend to be more elitist, the ones in their late 20s-early 40s are usually pretty decent sorts (even if I sometimes do get an urge to hose them down). Quite a few nice younger ones as well though, often seems arbitrary what scene attracts the tits in any given town. Mind you I probably would say that since I'm not averse to the odd patch and being a wee bit vegan as fuck myself.

I could do with more Discharge myself, I lost most of it when my old computer died and unfortunately I can't rip from vinyl to put what I have left up.

I'm kind of relieved you bought something after my gushing and didn't hate it. When I'm back at my computer I'll throw up Humanfly's fist album, it's the vocalist and one of the guitarists from Canvas (and early Beecher) doing some kind of JR Ewing screamo, but pretty much better than JR Ewing. It contains the line "here, have a riff grenade". I can imagine a few guys around these parts liking it. I know what you mean about John's vocals, he does get pretty wailing. Personally I rather like that completely off-key business, but... yeah.

On a related note, does anyone know of any really new hardcore bands that are totally fucking with the template and making you wonder if this is even hardcore? Because I could use more of that, the more political the better.

You know perfectly well that will be a reasonable compromise. Mind you, since the entirety of my knowledge of Baltimore comes from Homicide, The Wire and John Waters the concept of Baltimore screamo seems so incongruous. Also, I believe there was an unfulfilled promise of a Dawn Treader discog?

I've got that Open Up Finders, Please record by Age Sixteen and although it's good and it sometimes sounds like they're making a bit of an effort to be different with the guitar sound they're hardly breaking the screamo mould. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I love straight ahead screamo, but it is what it is.

It feels a lot lighter in tone than a lot of Kidcrash's other stuff (note i have never spun new ruins). While I felt Jokes kind of had a rip yr face off quality, this really never gets that heavy. A lot more focus on the light, mathy, fun side of kidcrash. Also, the vocals are a lot calmer since they're shouted, not screamed. Also US kids apparently we should wait to order the album.

Ladies, Gentlemen, and DIY kids, I present to you the Dawn Treader discography. For those who have never heard of Dawn Treader, they were (?) (i really don't know what they're status as a band is, i think they've broken up though) a thrashy, violent, grindy emo (scremo) band from Baltimore and the DC area. They share members with bands like army of kashyyyk, diablero, pansori, and i think monument, believe it or not (guitar and drums, its nuts!) (makes sense though anton plays an ibanez). In a way, I like to think of them as the second incarnation of pg.99, seeing as they had 11 members at one time. The interesting thing about Dawn Treader is that once they are done shredding yr face off they have really really involved quiet parts, complete with pianos and cellos. It's fucking crazy! This is everything dawn treader has done, except for the song the heart beat which is my favorite song by them :c

OH WELL ENJOY ITS DAWN SHREADDXDDER YOU FUCKS YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

FUCK YES! I've been looking forward to this, it's on the download now. I'm liking these Makiladoras jams too, always got time for some good crust so long as it's suitably pissed off and political. Oh shit it just busted some crucial chug when I wasn't expecting, nice. Female vocals make it all the better, hardcore has been becoming too much of a boys club around these parts of late so it's good to see the crusts keeping it real. Cheers Be My Head.

Just saw What Price, Wonderland? and Twisted kick out some old school emo jams. WPW are digging on some post-punk and '90s emo with a good amount of hardcore whereas Twisted are rocking it totally '80s emo but with some healthy garage thrown in. Expect a split 7" soon. WPW have a new album as well, get that from sncl or Art For Blind. If you like emo you really shouldn't miss out on WPW, they're definitely the best band doing it in the UK and one of the better ones in Europe as a whole. I would put some up but since I can't rip from vinyl and it only cost me £5 for an LP and two 7"es just buy the damn records. Have a myspace: http://www.myspace.com/whatpricewonderland

Hello, hardcore thread. Haven't spoken to you in awhile. I am here to tell you about a band you might like. They existed very briefly in 2003. They were called Sailboats. They only recorded a two-song demo before two of the members died in a car crash. The surviving member went on to become the drummer for Loma Prieta, who sometimes cover one of Sailboats' songs live. So take these two brilliant songs as a bittersweet gift. They are fast and chaotic and brutal. These two songs show so much potential that will sadly never be realised.

dude the whole car crash thing is apparently a joke.

Quote from: chug life
As for the car crash, that is where we have to speculate. When my band played a show with L'antietam this summer, I was talking to Derek (guitar/vocals) later that night at a party about music and Sailboats came up. He informed me that there was in fact no car crash and that the dudes from Sailboats were just kind of playing a practical joke and that they got a real kick out of the fact that everyone believes it. Now, before I get comments saying, "well how does he know?" etc etc etc I would say, "He knows because he is friends with Loma Prieta." (They're going on tour this January and releasing a split so check that shit out!)

but yeah, sailboats is so awesome. i really recommend people check those two songs out. and yeah, apparently if you yell behind trees at a loma prieta show they will play it. i know theres videos of loma playing it on the net, i've seen em.

Aww, I was all into the mythology and shit. It is still kinda sad that they broke up because they would probably be one of my favourite bands if they made more music.

Oh hey if this thread is back I may as well post this even though I already told Mike and Sam.  (http://Age Sixteen) has new songs up! They're doing a 7" with http://www.myspace.com/wrenlloyd (http://Wren Lloyd) and they put their songs from it. The two new songs seem to have a bit more bite than their other songs, but I think most of that is because Kris's vocals are a lot more abrasive (aka he's actually screaming the majority of the time.) While they do spend some time being very twinkly too, they just feel noisier and heavier when they're not. Which is fucking awesome. If they continue this type of progression, Age Sixteen is going to be so fucking good.

I'm not keen on all those quest appearances. It suggests more songs with singing and that's a terrible idea, Converge have appalling lyrics and those parts on No Heroes were downright cringeworthy. Jane Doe is as amazing as it is because not only can't you make out what he's screaming but they even obscure it in the liner notes. The cover art is blatantly Jane Doe mark 2 and that's not encouraging either, they've already done Jane Doe and shouldn't try and revisit that sound especially with additional crap bits in the way No Heroes sounded like You Fail Me with a load of rubbish added on. I'm not getting my hopes up on this evidence but I would love to see a return to form, so I hope I'm wrong. Edit: I've now heard the new song on their myspace. I suppose it's just possible they decided to introduce the album with one of the worst bits, or maybe it makes perfect sense to be that boring and like a shadow of their former selves when put in the context of the album... it's going to be shite, isn't it.

This new Age Sixteen stuff is pretty banging though, as are those Sailboats tracks. So in short, old dudes - 0, new guys - 2.

Hi guys, how do? first post for me.

Saw this post and coincidence would have it that one of the UK bands mentioned earlier in the thread are getting it back together to see if old men can still cause a ruckus. My old band Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon is back on the game for a short little while again. Info and songs are up on myspace.com/thirtysecondsuntilarmageddon if you fancy having a listen and a bit of a read about our plans

cheers, Dave

Oh holy shit, that is amazing. I might have criticised the idea of hardcore reunions earlier in this thread but that doesn't count in this case because you're TSUA. Fuck me, a discog as well? And a Leeds gig, according to the Thirty Days of Night myspace? I think the only way this could possibly get better would be if Fig 4.0 and Imbalance got announced as the supports.

Not exactly since most of the guests are instrumentalists, and I completely disagree about the lyrics - Bannon is definitely not the lyrical prodigy that most Converge-fans believes he is, but he's certainly one of the better lyricists in hardcore today (if you can even talk about that). I do agree about the cover art though, doesn't look as promising as No Heroes did but I guess we're on totally different bases here too.. I loved No Heroes, especially because they tried something different, but mostly because of the totally banging title track. I've heard from others though who have seen some live recordings that some of the tracks are more You Fail Me-ish..

Post by: a pack of wolves on 19 Aug 2009, 06:41
Ah, if they're mostly instrumentalists then that's a lot more promising for me. I might have been being too pessimistic, I remember thinking there was no way they could follow Jane Doe before You Fail Me was released and they proved me wrong there.

look out for a new band coming out of leeds soon with ex members of Fig 4 and TSUA...that should cover some bases for you!

Intriguing, the post Fig 4.0 bands have been pretty great on the whole. The Dauntless Elite always impressed me and I liked Eiger a lot as well.

This is pretty great, but also raises a question: what the hell is it with the lack of women in emo bands? I know hardcore has a horrible tendency to forget what 7 Seconds told us and think that it is just boys' fun, but emo just gets ridiculous. Off the top of my head I can think of these guys, Anomie, To Dream of Autumn and, er... my old band. Have I just been missing out on all the emo bands with female members, forgetting loads like an idiot or is it really as bad as I think?

Anyway, the excellent Hammers from Manchester have got a link up on their myspace where you can download all their songs for free. I highly recommend this if you enjoy the likes of Tragedy, The Holy Mountain, Cursed and all that epic d-beat and crust sort of stuff. They also have proper records you can touch and plenty of gigs coming up around the UK so you can touch the men themselves as well if you like. http://www.myspace.com/hammers625

Post by: sean on 30 Aug 2009, 21:04
if you are missing out, i am too. other than anomie, this is the first female fronted emo band i've seen, which is why i was so quick to check their jams out. i'd love for this to be am amended, and i've thrown around the idea of starting a female fronted band next summer perhaps with some friends of mine. emo really really needs more ladies, especially as most of us are at least somewhat anarchist minded, which should give most of us anti-patriarchal views. i really don't get it.

also that link looks hella tasty but right now im spinning that new do make say think track :c

I know, I've seen more tuff beatdown bands with women in than emo. It doesn't even have the homosocial platonic love songs vibe that sXe mosh and youth crew trade in. If you can get something going with some women in it that would be a very good thing. I'll try to remember to sling the To Dream of Autumn/Racebannon split up sometime, that's at least one more band (and I've got a suspicion there's another one I'm forgetting on either the Emo Armageddon comp or that one with the stupidly nice packaging that pretty much bankrupted Ape Must Not Kill Ape, I shall have to investigate).

Here is some stuff I just uploaded for Sean but I figured some of you guys might dig it. It is the discography of a band from New Jersey called Make Me. They were some pretty crucial dudes. Basically one of the early bands to do the whole contrast of quiet twinkly guitars/playful rhythm section and just totally relentless screams. If you dig stuff like Merchant Ships and Age Sixteen and (to a somewhat lesser extent) Logs you will probably jam this. The first song has some slightly embarrassing nasally ass singing bullshit in them that is tough to get used to but don't let that get you down. Power through it and you will realise that the singing is a tiny detail that doesn't ruin how good the song is. All the songs from "Relax and Adapt" untill the end are the straight shit, though.

Paranoid Delusions Paradise Illusions

(http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/3353/paranoiddelusions.jpg)(http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/3832/paradiseillusions.jpg)

This has been blowing me away for the last three days. Highlights: every song. To imagine Pulling Teeth, think Slayer mixed with Black Flag and a healthy amount of doom metal. My favourite track from this has to be Bloodwolves for the epic solo. And it really is epic. Oh yeah, and the two covers are awesome.

Quote from: Punknews.org
Ultimately, this release is a total exploration of contradictions. From the title and dual covers (done as an awesome shifting hologram for the LP release) to the lyrics and music they are set to, the clash of conflicting images, literal and metaphorical, seems to echo the conflicts of reality: life and death; rich and poor; and security and adventurism. The whole works to complete a large and satisfying artistic statement.

EDIT for actual content: So at 23.5 minutes and 5 tracks, does that make the Pulling Teeth record an EP, or just a really short LP (like Reign in Blood, come to think of it)? Because if so, this is just another of the really disproportionate amount of EPs that have been absolutely blowing me away this year. Between this, Pelican's "Ephemeral", The Boris/Torche split, "Planets of Old" by Cave-In, and about 10 EPs by local/Australian acts, I'm gonna have a "best EPs" list almost as long as the albums list.

To get nerdy, does it play on 33 or 45, and is it one-sided? I've got a few 12"es that are definitely EPs (and some albums on 7"), and if I had artwork that banging I'd want it on 12" even if it was a single. Around 25 minutes is a pretty decent length for a hardcore album anyway though, so I'm going to go with album as well regardless.

Misery Signals (http://www.myspace.com/miserysignals) - speak of the devil, consists of members from ^ 7A7P. Metal, with a fair amount of 'core, Misery Signals are definitely one of my favorite bands. Ever. I remember posting about how their most recent album was perfect (because it is) - the lyrics, the production, songwriting, the guitars/drums/bass/xylophones, the way the album 'flows' - everything. I also stated that the last two songs will give you chills (because they will). A most-definite must-listen.

OK so this is from way back but I just wanted to say that despite digging on "Mirrors" pretty hard I neglected this album, and didn't think it was anything special. I went back to it to today and holy crap, dude. Maybe I was just in the right mood for some fuckin' xbrootalxbreakxdownsx but this is killing me right now.

Anyway, what is up thread? It has been a while, and that is a damn tragedy. So here, have some kick ass hardcore choons.

Lewd Acts- Black Eye Blues

(http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y14/djgyn/3339.jpg)

I actually just DL'd this album this morning and am on my first listen-through now, but I was sufficiently impressed with the stuff on the band's Myspace and the first two songs on the record to know that you guys should be hearing this.

Here is my main bro Gary Suarez (http://www.metalsucks.net/2009/10/23/lewd-acts-give-us-the-black-eye-blues/#more-23010) with a review:

Quote
Contrasting with the unsettling amount of mind-numbing sonic uniformity dominant in today’s American hardcore scene, San Diego’s Lewd Acts offer a much needed corrective, as made so evident with Black Eye Blues, their new album for Jacob Bannon’s Deathwish Inc. imprint. Sure, the band serve up enough uptempo cuts to fuel the savagely vibrant circle pits we’ve all come to expect at hardcore shows, be they at recreation centers, dive bars, or mid-sized general admission concert venues. Yet as with labelmates Narrows, Lewd Acts infuses creative growth and artistic progression into a genre largely categorized by its ironic stagnancy.

Following the tense, sludgy, theme-defining intro of “Know Where To Go”, the fury is unleashed on “Wide Black Eyes,” a classic slice of two-minutes-or-less hardcore with all the trimmings. Rightly so, Lewd Acts front-load this album with a few more like this before throwing its first genuine sonic curveball, a slow spoken word dirge called “Who Knew The West Coast Could Be So Cold?”. Here, vocalist Tyler Densley tones down his roar for an even more unsettling rasp as he rants against a backdrop of muted drumwork and comparative clean guitar and bass. It is immediately followed by “Penmanship Sailed,” perhaps this fantastic album’s best track. Fueled by a low, crunchy and driving bassline as if ripped from some discarded B-side for Helmet’s classic ‘Meantime’ LP, this killer tune (the album’s longest) builds to a grand finish of pounding percussion and soaring riffage.

Throughout Black Eye Blues, Lewd Acts do their absolute damnedest to subtly subvert conventional hardcore with extremely well-executed tracks full of cutting melodies and immolating dissonance. The otherwise blistering “Young Lovers, Old Livers” carries a sumptuously anthemic chorus that only gets more potent on repeated listens. This is not to say that the band have gone the pop-punk route; rather, they have embraced the nonconformity of their forefathers like Black Flag while shunning the trends and metallic tendencies of their peers. As a result, Black Eye Blues more than just stands out among this year’s hardcore records; it ranks among 2009’s best overall albums.

i don't think there is a single bad band on deathwish - i just started listening to Rise and Fall (http://www.myspace.com/riseandfall13)'s new album Our Circle Is Vicious and it is immaculate. anyone who likes deathwish hardcore (a la converge, shipwreck a.d., trap them, pulling teeth, victims, etc etc) needs to get this.

i reckon "Jupiter" and "Perfect Pitch Black" are the best two, but generally, you can't go wrong with anything they've done.  even "antenna" is awesome, despite what more-hardcore-than-thou types might tell you.

i think i upped jupiter in the mf! thread a while back, give it a search and see if it turns up mate.

This thread needs more love. So here's Hour of the Wolf. Two albums and a split EP with Lewd Acts. All awesome hardcore 'n' roll. That's probably the best way to describe it.

Quote from: scenepointblank
Hour of the Wolf are one of the best punk bands in America-trust me. [...] This band channels the back-alley, fire-breathing menace of Poison Idea, mixed with a whoa'd hookiness gene-spliced from Danzig's hair follicles or even the fingernails of an hungry young A.F.I., plus just a dash of Billy Zoom's silver-flaked glitter guitar-but under duress, like he'd been kidnapped and forced to supply his Chuck Berry-isms at gunpoint. The guitars actually have a nervous, amphetamine-addled edge that almost conjures up the ghost of Drive Like Jehu. It's a potent mix. Instead of coming off like empty placeholders for something mercurial that's gone tepid, Hour of the Wolf molest some of rock and roll's stale signifiers until they actually sound dangerous again.

I saw that the other day. Sort of impressive how much they manage to get wrong in one article. Niche Homo hardly covers any hardcore at all, it's written by Stroidy not Nick Jones, since when were Broken Arm a hardcore band anyway, and they only mention three bands. Plus, someone from Mob Rules really needs to stop Conor from ever talking in an interview.

i've been meaning to post stuff in this thread for weeks now and been too lazy to actually do it, so here goes:


Strike Anywhere - "Iron Front"

(http://www.digitales-zimmer.de/dzwp/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/strikeanywhere.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?nyf4miyzljy
For my money, it's the finest yet.  They've taken the stronger melodic sensibilities of "Dead FM" and combined them with the harder-hitting sound of their earlier records that I felt "Dead FM" was slightly lacking.  Also, just about every track is memorable, whereas previously their albums had one or two tracks that'd kinda run into one another a little.  Even more of an achievement when you consider this is a good 3 or 4 tracks longer than most of their previous output.  Solid album, and anyone who likes a bit of melodic hardcore should check it out.


Secondly, a super special three-in-one pack of awesome Dan Yemin-related hardcore funtimes!  OH FUCK YES, SON, THIS IS THE GOOD SHIT:

(http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/l/lifetime/album-hello-bastards.jpg) (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41S7HDGB3ZL._SL500_AA240_.jpg) (http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/6225/armalitearmalite.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?m22ndkyymlv
All in one convenient download, you get Lifetime's "Hello Bastards," (an energetic, emotional, melodic hardcore classic, and a hugely influential one at that!), Paint It Black's debut "CVA" (furious pissed off hardcore with Yemin taking on the vocals to great effect, with some awesome back-ups from Dave House, now of The Loved Ones), and the self-titled album by Armalite (a pop-punk/hardcore half-breed featuring Dan tearing it up on bass, and Atom Goren, this time without his "package" on vocals).  Enjoy!

RESURRECTION CCCCCCCCCCCCOMBO BREAKER!

So I thought you guys should check out some New Zealand hardcore. We have a myriad of scenes going on down here but I'm more into the post-hardcore/thrashcore scene. It doesn't really have anything to do with thrash but that's what the more conventional hardcore scenesters have labelled it. Really most of these bands have more in common with 80s hardcore ala Blackflag/JLA but whatever. There's a strong Christian hardcore scene that tends to play a mix of mainstream metalcore and hatebreed styled hardcore. Pretty boring, pretty common.
Anyway!

The Wrongmen - now defunct, somewhat similar in style to Ghost of a Thousand and maybe Breecher.
http://thewrongmen.blogspot.com/ - You can download their final recording and their last 7 inch here. Both really awesome. If you're interested their full length (Den of Vipers) is available to download somewhere in here; http://ratkingzine.blogspot.com/

Speaking of Rat King, you should also check it out for other awesome NZ bands like Tentacles of Destruction, Smashing Off, Streetkunt and Workshy.
Other awesome NZ bands of note which I don't have recordings of: Short lived, Damaged, Coffee Rage, Wasteland, The Vrill, Neon Bastard, Strangers.

If you guys are interested I can probably find some more stuff/upload some of my own collection.

whoooo i am happy this thread got resurrected.

so dear hardcore thread,

i have recently re-discovered the goodness of early a.f.i.
their first couple of albums are pretty awesome poppy hardcore. the third one is just incredible in every way and i was obsessed with it when i was 13/
14.

then they fuckin' sold out and did the whole mallgoth thing which i am so not down with. i don't really listen to their "gothy" albums at all cause i find them quite dull. i don't even like black sails in the sunset that much, and apparently that is still an acceptably hardcore record.

I saw them live about a month ago and they are still AMAZING. Best albums go: Art of drowning > Sing the sorrow > Black sails > Shut your mouth > Decemberunderground > Answer that > Very proud of ya > Crash love. IMO of course. But I feel that you're horribly wrong. Their later albums are (a lot more melodramatic) more interesting than their early Filth-esque parroting. All good albums. Even Crash love is listenable.

Agreed.

Like a lot of bands AFI are the product of a balancing act between two disparate influences- in their case, Bay Area HxCx and Depeche Mode-worshipping goth-lite- and as in almost every case they started favouring one very heavily with just hints of the other, and as their career wore on the balance would shift towards the second influence more with each album. Also like almost every other case their best work was done in the middle period when the pull of both influences reached an equilibrium i.e; Art of Drowning and Sing the Sorrow. Before that they were completely unremarkable and also embarrassingly immature, afterwards they seemed to me as though they were subsuming their own natural creative impulses and trying to hard to appeal to a certain (fickle, fleeting, fashionable teenaged) demographic- never a good thing.

i have never seen em live, sadly. thus i'd have to say:

shut your mouth era > black sails era (transference is my fave song by them ever) > answer that > very proud of ya > sing the sorrow > art of drowning

haven't listened to crash love or decemerunderground that much.

They recently released Ox, a really great album. I could recommend a range of shitty metalcore as well, because I like it, but I doubt you would.

They recently released Ox, a really great album. I could recommend a range of shitty metalcore as well, because I like it, but I doubt you would.

I'm not really sure how Coalesce are mathier than Botch, they definitely aren't on the albums pre-split. Coalesce are the plodding, Led Zeppelin obsessed ones. And saying Shai Hulud invented metalcore is more than a bit misleading since they apparently formed in the mid-'90s which means Integrity, Earth Crisis, Rorschach and Converge all predate Shai Hulud by about 5 or 6 years and quite a lot of other bands were already active or forming at the same time.

Sean, get yourself some old Integrity, like Humanity Is The Devil. Forget Earth Crisis, a few fun songs but you can comfortably skip them. Chokehold are absolutely essential, you need Content With Dying but be warned, it's really sloppy and rough edged. Totally worth it though. Deadguy are a good idea too, get hold of Fixation On A Coworker. Oh, and Rorschach, this is very important. Basically, after Void went shit and split the intensity level dropped significantly in hardcore. We had to wait until Rorschach for things to get fucked up again. Get Autopsy, that's the discog. Finishes on the best cover of My War you'll ever hear. You're also going to need The Swarm aka Knee Deep In The Dead's brilliant Parasitic Skies. You know Cursed right? Well before Cursed there was The Swarm, and they make Cursed sound like a damn pop-punk band. Fucking Invincible At One A.M. is downright fucking feral and will eat your face for not being nailed thoroughly enough to the X. Unbroken aren't strictly metalcore but they're very important to the whole thing, and besides, it's fucking Unbroken so you need it. From the UK check Canvas for the weird shit, Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon for Drone and Lost being two of the best mosh songs ever and Stand for being excessively reasonable but with awesome riffs. I say fuck Slavearc, hardline bollocks, and XCanaanX were dogshit too no matter what anyone says.

Oh, and are you already up on the whole kinda screamo/metalcore/crust type thing from Bremen? Because if not, dude. Acme, Mörser, Systral, Carol, Acheborn... Awesome bands. Oh, and we need to talk about Belgium. Metalcore is one of the only genres in existence where Belgium is a big deal. You're going to need a bit of early Congress and Liar, and fuck it, Arkangel. Yeah it's basically one riff all the way through Dead Man Walking but y'know, the chug is good and they're named after an animal liberation magazine so who cares.

So remember these things: Germans and Canadians outbr00dal most people and are more interested in politics than the edge, the British are weird, Belgians are all militant vegan edge and call their labels things like Sober Mind and Good Life and the Americans are somewhere in the middle of it all.

Shai Hulud did the whole melodic thing though, I haven't heard much early Converge so I can't really comment. As I said, I like a lot of the crap metalcore so my opinion isn't exactly the best.

Post by: a pack of wolves on 01 Apr 2010, 14:42
You're right though, Converge were more melodic in their early years than they were on Jane Doe but that's not exactly saying much. Shai Hulud definitely kept to a more traditional hardcore format but upped the metal which put them apart from the more brutal Cleveland style of bands like Integrity and Ringworm or early Converge and Rorschach who both had a somewhat emo-inflection in their vocals at least, so it's not like they were just aping the earlier metalcore bands.

End This Day and Coma Eternal, along with 7 Angels 7 Plagues, make up pretty much everything I ever (really) gave a shit about in metalcore.  Like, there are a ton of other decent bands,  but at this point, I really feel like these are the ones worth knowing.  7a7p and EtD pretty much made midwest metalcore.  Uploading to mediafire now, will post later.

EVIL PRIEST

One of New Zealand's best defunct hardcore bands. Members went on to form some of the best bands in NZ today. Not a very serious band despite all appearances.
From facebook;
Quote
Formed in "99 the Auckland based band went on to release three albums and two 7"s.They were also featured on the Integrity tribute album aswell as a BFm live to air album. First show played in November of '99, last show played in November of 2005. Evil Priest appealed to Hardcore, punk and metal kids alike, growing a wide and varied fanbase. With very little self promotion and always either playing for free to support a touring band, playing for free for a benefit or charging very little to see them. Its a wonder they managed to release anything

that band is a little bit terrible, but at least you aren't listening to Norma Jean (I honestly don't even know if they are technically "metalcore" but always seemed like the band you maybe listened to when you were first getting into metalcore-ish stuff (I'm referring of course to a time when Bless The Martyr Kiss the Child was the only album they had released) and to be discarded quickly thereafter)

Yeah, Norma Jean are pretty horrendous. There's just no excuse. This The Chariot lot aren't in the same league of shitty, just another dull band with more corporate promos and bad merch than things to say. Just listen to The Swarm for a bit and you'll be fine.

Entrails and Celeste are great, I need to grab that Celeste stuff that isn't Nihiliste(s) when I've got some more space.

Some of the guys from D-Rail have got a new band doing heavy, rocking hardcore with a lot of riffs: End To Empires (http://www.myspace.com/endtoempires). It's dead good.

I guess there are two types of metalcore. There's METALcore which is the "<insert currently popular metal genre> + BREAKDOWNS YEAAHH". Then there's metalCORE which is more "So guys we have this cool hardcore band but we want to mix it up a bit. Let's add some cool metal in places!". Obviously the second type is better 99% of the time. But I can confess that I listen to a lot of the first type as well. I should probably be crucified if I ever go to a hardcore show etc.
Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: David_Dovey on 10 Jun 2010, 20:13
Also there's a fucking gigantic gulf between both metalCORE and METALcore as bob describes which both involve synthesis of different genres into a coherent whole, and bands like TDWP which are second or third generation and are unoriginal rehashes of those syntheses, where even if they do listen to Rorschach or Dissection or whatever, it's not the primary influence on their songwriting. It's actually metalcore bands. And of course this gets even worse when the second or third-gen bands start becoming primary influences and now you've got bands like Suicide Silence or Miss May I making even more washed-out bullshit and wouldn't know Slayer or Minor Threat if you beat them about the head with it.

As the foremost contemporary commentator on Whatever Bullshit Kids These Days Are Into, Sgt. D from Stuff You Will Hate/Metal Inquisition has a pretty handy exegesis on the whole subject (although from the perspective of the skramz/screamo axis) in a guest column for Metalsucks right nyah (http://www.metalsucks.net/2010/06/07/the-history-of-metalcorescreamo/)

Damn right. Actually, time for a legit metalcore youtube post.

Did you know Integrity made several really good albums? They fully did! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGcyn3yaRjA)
My word, it's Acme from Bremen! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7iYxYFd_jU)
And Systral! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsnt4IkLs3E) More Bremen insanity, what is up with these Germans. Is this even metalcore anymore? Oh who cares.
Fucking Unbroken! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8KD9uKBb9k&feature=related)
Normally I avoid live videos, but Fucking Invincible At One A.M. by The Swarm is the best song! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiRbYNCrYqA&feature=related)
Oh hello Catharsis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swwnQRpqUWo&feature=related), you do have a point that crust and metalcore go together quite nicely!
Why don't more people like Fall Silent? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZTWVs9qzog&feature=related) It's just silly!
I know they're total cheese and every song on this record sounds exactly the same, but Arkangel have so much daft chug! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlZRMZJ5jks&feature=related) Plus you've got to have some Belgians.

absolutely nothing

skramz is a word kids use to identify screamo as "real screamo", or the screamo associated with the diy scene. it sounds so dumb though, so i always just say screamo.

The whole minor-scale modal harmony guitar thing owes a ginormous debt to the more recent melodeath, who snagged it from Iron Maiden.

This is the thread for me. I love hardcore, it was the first real genre of music that I got into, around the time Killswitch released Alive or just Breathing. Lucky me, the New Jersey hardcore scene is still alive and kicking, so I can see a ton of good shows for cheap.

Some great hardcore bands I didn't see mentioned:
still playing:
Terror- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYgFnLfDJMI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYgFnLfDJMI)

I have two options:

5th of november, Black Breath play in Copenhagen, close-ish to my place.

However, at the same time, a whole mess of awesome death metal bands play in a town far away. We're talkin' Immolation (!!!), Pestilence and Napalm Death. But that's gonna be expensive too, so I'm leaning towards Black Breath. Buuuut..

IMMOLATION, goddamnit!

I was kinda blown away when I heard Heavy Breathing because I was expecting more of that kind of thrashy-hardcore sound that the EP had.

But yeah. Fucking awesome. One of my favorite albums of the year.

Post by: Vuk on 19 Oct 2010, 19:05
hated Rohnert Park. it seemed like they were trying so hard to write a different record, that they lost focus of songwriting. nothing on that album stands out to me.

on the other hand, the new Killing The Dream record is an example of a band doing something different with their sound, but remaining true to what they are.

Black Breath are an "Entombed rip-off" no doubt, but 1) it's not like that's a particularly deeply mined vein, and 2) Being derivative isn't really that big a deal in this style as long as you're still fucking faces off with aggression and awesomeness, see also: Pulling Teeth.

Lurk moar newb.

Been enjoying the first Ghost of a Thousand LP recently. The second is garbage unfortunately but that's life I guess.

A friend also introduced me to Trillion Barnacle Lapse recently, not strictly hardcore. Maybe I'd describe it as post-hardcore electro. Of course, that brings to mind Attack Attack but they're really nothing like that. They were doing what Enter Shikari went on to do long before them and doing it ten fold better.
Here's a clip that may or may not substantiate my claims; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0XuTFqHpII
Terrible audio quality but you get the idea.

Also been listening to Hot Cross and Pg. 99.

tbh, i enjoy both records, i just find the second one to have more memorable moments.  but then again, it has a bit more of a punk'n'roll vibe to it, which is something i'm a fan of anyway, so maybe i'm biased that way.

GT are amazing.  i saw them live in a tiny venue (the jailhouse in coventry) shortly after the release of "dead mountain mouth" and although the crowd was subdued (it's hard to know what to do other than stare open-mouthed when the music's that batshit insane), it was a truly immense gig.  shame they're on hiatus now  :-(

   Hey everybody,

    Things have been pretty quiet for Genghis Tron recently, which has led some folks to ask us if we’re breaking up. Well, we definitely aren’t breaking up, but we have decided to take some time away from the band.

    It will be a while before we release another record — and probably even longer before we play shows. However, this was the best thing we could do to make sure that GT keeps writing some real toe-tappers. Whenever we come back, it will probably be pretty weird and really good.

    Thanks for all of the support,

    –Mookie,Michael, and Hamilton

Honestly, not many hardcore records I feel strongly about this year. I was really looking forward to Skin Like Iron's newest because of how good All Human Failings was, but I found it so disappointing. The same goes for a lot of records in the genre, this year. Killing The Dream is pretty awesome, but I didn't hear it enough to make a solid decision.

Ok. I've relistened to it. I don't think it's garbage anymore. BUT it's nowhere near as strong as their first release. Suffering severely from Awesomefirstalbumitis, the second simply cannot measure up.

Gonna go listen to some Neurosis now instead.

Some dude on punknews.org posted a generic sorta "hey guys, check out my band" post, and for some reason I bothered to actually click through and have a listen.  For the first time in my history of using that site, shit came up trumps.  This is a really awesome, well-written, catchy, well-recorded album from an unsigned band. 

RIYL: Fast, melodic pop-punk/melodic hardcore in the vein of Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, (old) Rise Against, Bouncing Souls, Latterman etc. etc.

Honestly, this could be the most excited I've been about discovering a new band, it's THAT good an album.

Bands like ... Eroticide, Avantasia (hardcore metal meets LOtR shit, see) ... Alestorm, which is pirate metal.

Saying there's anything remotely hardcore metal about Avantasia is admittedly a bit of a stretch, sorry.

And Pantera puts me to sleep as well.

Nevertheless, this thread is mainly about hardcore, not metal. Just FYI.
There are some other threads about metal though.

I haven't uploaded anything on this thread for some time now, so I figured I'd throw up a couple of albums I've picked up recently - both from the scrappier, more rock'n'roll influenced end of hardcore.  Cloak/Dagger (who are tagged as "Cloak or Dagger" on the mp3s thanks to WMP's unwillingness to deal with slashes in artist names) sound very much like Hot Snakes, especially in the guitarwork (and even down to the lyrics - the first track heavily references "If Credit's What Matters, I'll Take Credit") with a slightly gruffer vocalist.  Then we have The Smoking Hearts, who aren't a world away from first-album-era The Bronx, but a bit more frantic and rougher round the edges, with a penchant for squally solos.  Furious stuff, and you can't fuck with a band that has a song called "Thrash B4 Gash," quite frankly.  Enjoy...

Cloak/Dagger - "Lost Art"  (2009)

If you type their name into Facebook, they posted another link on there. Saw them again yesterday, and fuck it was good. I'm kind of bummed that they aren't selling vinyl yet, since all they had yesterday was a tape.

guys, search the M/F thread (possibly the 2009/10 ones if they're still knocking about), i'm almost certain i uploaded "umber/star booty" and "ben hur" on there a while back.

i'm just uploading a whole mess of stuff right now, which i will post as soon as it's finished...

Ah, well that IS unfortunate, as I don't have those albums on this computer...  I'm fairly sure a google search should turn them up for you though, they're definitely worth a listen, especially "Umber/Star Booty." 

As promised, "a whole mess of stuff;" a few choice picks of the hardcore-related stuff I've been spinning lately:

End of a Year - "You are Beneath Me"

(http://www.punknews.org/images/covers/end-of-a-year-you-are-beneath-me.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?bq5bztdklbqewfb
Very DC-influenced post-hardcore with duelling guitars and a loose, punky feel.  The vocalist, Patrick Kindlon, has a weird scratchy voice, but after you get used to it, it really suits the songs, and his lyrics are outstanding throughout.  Also worth checking out his Formspring account for some very interesting reading.



letlive. - "Fake History"

(http://www.punknews.org/images/covers/letlive-fake-history.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?rqr7fyrn24m24m2
So yeah, while Glassjaw have been busy riling up their fans with piecemeal releases of odd songs over the last few months in what must be the worst kind of musical cock-tease imaginable, a bunch of upstarts from LA decided to beat them at their own game.  Yes, this sounds very like GJ, but with a speedier melodic hardcore influence.  Properly solid from start to finish.



Hostage Calm - "Hostage Calm"

(http://www.punknews.org/images/covers/hostage-calm-hostage-calm.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?yfg84g4210j209z
This is my favourite album of 2010, which is why, despite it residing on the very edges of hardcore as a genre, I'm still posting it here.  Hostage Calm used to be a straight up melodic hardcore band, reminiscent on their debut "Lens" of older Crime in Stereo.  And now, much like that band, they've embraced experimentation and made what their label describes as a "deranged pop record."  There are still hardcore/punk parts, but they're tempered with a keen sense of melody, latin percussion, piano, and huge vocal harmonies.  Of note is the drumming, which holds everything together nicely through the numerous turn-on-a-dime time changes in each song.  Totally gripping from start to finish, and another album where you'll really want to follow the lyrics too.



Make Do and Mend - "End Measured Mile"

(http://lh4.ggpht.com/_WNQUVKHKlz8/TM9yJm2OG9I/AAAAAAAABmY/Prd-vSrQzQE/Make_Do_And_Mend-End_Measured_Mile-2010.jpg?imgmax=800)

Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?06ep2l462gc5m5e
A heavier take on the whole gruff melodic punk-rock sound, heavily reminiscent of "Caution"-era Hot Water Music.  This album came out of nowhere for me, and I've barely stopped listening to it since. 



Worn In Red - "In the Offing"

(http://imgsrv.shorealternative.com/image/shalt/UserFiles/Image/Punkyard/175147%5B1%5D.jpg)

Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?izga5q596ueah4d
Gloomy and heavy post-hardcore for fans of Glass and Ashes, Young Livers, Planes Mistaken for Stars etc.  Bit of a grower, this kinda passed me by when it was first released back in 2009, but recent listens have revealed its charms.

Just found out that No Friends (an 80s-Hardcore-influenced band featuring dudes from New Mexican Disaster Squad/Virgins/Gatorface on t'instruments, and Tony Foresta from Municipal Waste on vocals), have got their "Traditional Failures" EP up for free download on bandcamp, and felt compelled to share this delight with all yous fine-ass mothafuckas who frequent the hardcore thread.  Have a butchers at this:

Title: punx thread
Post by: sean on 03 Feb 2011, 10:27
hey punx thread sup.

okay so today i am going to tell you about Baton Rouge. They are a pretty new band, but don't worry these guys arn't babies it is actually pretty much just the dudes from Daitro and 12XU and they basically rewrote Y but made it less gruff and more fun. Like imagine if every song on Y sounded a little more like IX and less like, II. Either way dont expect anything stupidly heavy for this, this is goof off and dance in yr underwear punk rock.

and made a pretty awesome tape.

figured i'd copy a few cool hardcore uploads from the M/F thread to here.  credit due to the users in the quotes, of course:

(http://revhq.com/images/covers/250/nosr012.jpg)

LA DISPUTE - "Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River Between Vega And Altair"
Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?m0uhti1jx4gIn the non-major veins of Modern Life is War, surprisingly tight hardcore. Flossing the teeth of late nineties, enough grime to keep you crusty, but clean enough to show others.
Not my link, but turn off the lights and fuck it if it's wet.


Trap Them - Darker Handcraft

http://www.M/F.com/?9ek94fvf4ywykf5FFO: Entombed, Converge, His Hero Is Gone, etc.

This band has yet to release a bad record, so if you're into hardcore or metal and the bands I mentioned, definitely check this one out.

This is an amazing records by some amazing dudes, They are just about to kick off a pretty expansive tour with some equally awesome dudes. i.e...

last i heard, they were in the process of recording a new full-length.  i really liked the last one (but i haven't heard any of the splits/eps/etc.) so i'm looking forward to hearing this.

also, in other hardcore related news, i hear the new defeater is rather insanely good.  if it's in stock at the shop, i'll pick it up today...

This is a full length released by a high school group from Boise, ID formed back in 2004 and disbanded in 2007 or so. It's pretty experimental grind/thrash/metal/rock. Definitely not to be taken too seriously.

Man, the new Beau Navire album is so fucking good...it could end up being one of my favourites this year. I just want to leave the rest of my listening for when I actually get the LP. BN are apparently recording another full-length already, and they have a split with Suffix coming out soon as well.

Also, stoked to get the We Were Skeletons/MIWA split. All these good bands putting out so much good material.

Post by: sean on 10 Mar 2011, 13:02
have you heard the songs off the suffix split? they're pretty good and the new beau navire is pretty good so im stoked on that.

but i think im more stoked on the we were skeletons split that they're doing with the saddest landscape, the wws track is pretty okay but mnwa (or whatever they call themselves) is kinda shitty.
Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: Vuk on 10 Mar 2011, 13:55
Didn't know the Suffix stuff leaked, I'll have to check that out. I'm not a huge fan of The Saddest Landscape, but I guess I'll check that out too for the WWS song. And I think the band is callled Misha, but they spell it with Russian Cyrillic letters so the "sh" is a "w". Kind of silly, but what I heard from them wasn't that bad.
Title: Re: I Like Hardcore Music. Do You Like Hardcore Music? - SAM, YOU MUST POST!
Post by: sean on 10 Mar 2011, 15:04
oh they arn't leaked, but they've been on the suffix myspace for months now. im also not a huge saddest landscape dude but their track on the pianos become the teeth split they did killed so they are in my favor right now. and yeah, that sounds right about mischa. they're actually based right by where i go to school, which is kinda neat but i dunno, they would probably be better if they had a bassist.

i saw them back in may '09 plus i have a bit of their shit on vinyl. they do the whole the whole post-rock+screamo/hardcore mix thing. i don't think they're the best thing since sliced bread but they're getting pretty goddamn popular for that type of music over here in the states and they put on a decent show back then, even if it was a lil loud since they hadn't even put out their full length yet so i couldn't tell what was really going on. they'll probably do a nice set though, if you wanna check out their stuff i'd say spin some tracks off their full length old pride (which is probably posted somewhere on this forum) or their recent split 9/7" with the saddest landscape. dont expect to have yr mind blown, and personally i'd be more stoked to see suis la lune, who i think they're touring with.

MOAR MUSIC

this (http://carriedouttosea.blogspot.com/2011/03/we-were-skeletons-splits-2011.html) is a blog post with the new Saddest Landscape & We Were Skeletons Split 7" and the We Were Skeletons & мища splits. Honestly, I think the Saddest Landscape track here is one of the best songs I've ever heard them do, I'm starting to really get stoked on shit they put out. The We Were Skeletons tracks on that split are pretty standard fare for them (which is good i think so whatever), but they really shine on the мища, with a rerecorded version of wolves, which is also on the ryan ottoman EP and another song with is really goddamn awesome. мища does their thing, which is neat i guess. im starting to warm up to them, they basically play stupidly frantic/bleak/yet minimal hardcore, get at these if yr into it.

I can't stop listening to WWS s/t. I can't get into all of it, but some of it is incredible. the song "Well, I did spend a year in college" is one of the best songs I've heard from 2010.

Also, in important hardcore news, Converge is recording a split with fucking Dropdead. They're also touring with Trap Them and Burning Love, and Dropdead are playing the Philly and Cambridge shows. If this doesn't hit Toronto or close to here, I'm gonna have to make a trip out of it.

This probably belongs in the hardcore forum but hey, it's wink wink & shit. Really I had to put this up because it doesn't seem like anybody's bothered yet, so I manually caught the tracks in Firefox cache and pulled the corresponding mp3's linked from

Brief Review:
Is This Hyperreal?, Atari Teenage Riot’s first album released through LA future stomp label Dim Mak, is an acetylene laced documentation of ATR’s re-ignition after an eleven year silence. Produced, mixed, recorded with Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails), ATR’s fourth studio release was made at the Hellish Vortex studio in Berlin.

A cultural cold war divided upon class lines, a new age of surveillance, heroes’ incarcerated in the worst conditions possible for speaking out against the military complex, a corrupt press core owned by multi-national corporations and raised to repeat sound bytes. This is the post-cyberpunk world on the brink of collapse Atari Teenage Riot’s Is This Hyperreal? is born into. Every track is an iridescent explosion of nervous energy requesting your attendance in Atari Teenage Riot’scampaign party of education and awareness. Having influenced a generation of M.I.A., Crystal Castles, Le Tigre, Sleigh Bells, and Pendulum, Atari Teenage Riot is a welcome shot in the arm of the music industry.
