1225 DAYS OF DISCORD "The thong behind the thug" (cd-r)

Days Of Discord is one of the most promising band outta paris. After a first demo in 2005, they released last year a MCD called "The Thong Behind The Thug". After few seconds we know it's gonna be massive. Close to the early Full Blown Chaos and Bounz The Ball supported by a raw production, the record is a great mix between heavy hardcore, bashing mid tempos and killing breakdowns. We expect a lot from these guys, so be sure to check them up : they worth it.

1223 BACKSTAB "Demo 2007" (cd-r) pix in the database

This new outfit from london and friend of the rucktion family has just released a 4 tracks demo in the vein of a classic old school hardcore between sick of it all and the late 80'. it sounds really cool and got a "home-made / garage" touch and energy i like a lot. A good shot for a demo, now let's see how they gonna evolve, and if you got time and money go check backstab live. Oh and by the way it's a 100% girly band, but seriously we don't care.

1222 MONSIEUR PO "There was life" (mcd) pix in the database

First MCD for this parisian band and a good shot. It's nice to hear some old fashioned stuff away from all the nowaday lame metalcore. This is how metalcore should be, how edge metal is, like it was on the late 90'. True, honest, angered, melodic without compleasant harmonies, fast and heavy on the same time. The artwork is a bit cheap, no japanese design this time even if the lyrics still got a big influence on that culture. Well it's DIY baby ! Think old caliban, old heaven shall burn, old narziss, neaera. Anyway, the guys should be on tour this year, don't miss them.

1205 SLICK SCRATCH "Ep" (cd-r)

The all-girl japanese band Slick Scratch is back again with a new EP. To see how far these women have come after all the difficulties they've encountered is amazing, and the sound of these 3 tracks is faithful to their state of mind : A powerfull metalcore without concessions. Great harmonies, the japanese female singing and the lyrics about woman issues gives the ensemble a unique taste while staying within the boundries of the genre. Quality.

1203 ALEA JACTA EST "Demo 2007" (mcd) pix in the database

Alea Jacta Est, the die is cast, i guess for the good in this new harcore metal outfit from Toulouse, France. A 3 tracks demo and we can already see talent even if it hadn't fully blossom yet. They got it, the recipe to make you headbang, the groove to get you bootyshake. I heard the drummer could play like the cd's drum-machine (bobby ?), i guess the band live isn't disappointing at all. A cool record, a band you should def keep an eye on.

1177 UNBREAKABLE "Demo 2007" (cd-r) pix in the database

Ok. Well produced, well performed, but i guess there's something missing quite evident : maturity and temper. Too many bands nowaday follow the path of this "modern beatdown hardcore stuff", but god they all got the same sound. That's a good try anyway, perseverance and maybe some time should resolve that problem, as well as influences from the mid 90' metal hardcore. Oh and the cover is nice, but CDC have already done that one...

1176 THESE ARE THE DAYS "Demo 2005" (cd-r) pix in the database

They say it's a demo, i say it's more an ep with 8 tracks bounded to quality and positive spirit. In the vein of a Champion or With Honor, These Are The Days spread a fast and passionate old school hardcore with melodic guitars, sing alongs, introspective lyrics : quite a classic, but there's also some untypical breackdowns making this record standing a bit appart of the rest of the scene. Promising and well spirited, the band didn't pass the year and broke up few months after releasing the demo. Sad ...

1169 NO GUTS NO GLORY "Hardcore college" (cd) pix in the database

No Guts No Glory is a good surprise for a french band who seems to be a fun formation of crazy dudes. Despite a great sense of humour who often leads to mediocrity in music their first effort named "Hardcore College" is fucking tight and well done : 8 tracks of old to new school hardcore without concession, and the ensemble got a surprising production for a DIY release. This is cool and fun, let's hope they will find a label in the future.

1137 PETE MOSH "The world is a gym" (cd-r) pix in the database

For Pete Mosh, the world is a gym. And when you hear these 5 tracks, there is no doubt about it : they love the dance, the attitude and the fun. Nothing new, but who cares? The sound tends to be classic hardcore mixed with some beatdown influences, sometimes really near Madball (especialy the singer) but more modern in its approach of song structures. Fresh and groovy, the perfect soundtrack if you want to practice at home your 2-step or your enraged windmill. The gym-power of Pete Mosh is recommended for every athletic mosher.

1127 PIECE BY PIECE NYC "Live demo" (mcd) pix in the database

PIECE BY PIECE formed in New York in the beginning of 2006. We all met eachother in the mid 90's, playing in bands and being involved in the east coast hardcore scenes. We all grew up on a heavy diet of hardcore, punk,and metal. Being influenced by bands like INTEGRITY and HATEBREED, we tuned-down our guitars and went to work. While the overall plan was to write heavy music with reality based lyrics, we can't help but get a little evil once in a while and write a song like "CRAWL", which is just pure violence. The song on this page is from a live recording we did. We mixed it and it came out better than we expected.......thanks to Sound Move Studios in Long Island, N.Y. So we started this page to give everyone a taste. There's plenty more violence to come !!!!!

1070 ARISE OF JUDGEMENT "A war to end it all" (cd-r) pix in the database

Promising young straight-edge hardcore band from Norway. This outfit is mainly influenced by the italian edge metal scene with acts like Purification, Sentence. For the moment, it's a lil bit similar but i am sure they will find their own identity soon. If you are down with this kind of metallic hardcore and straight-edge commitment, don't wait no longer and pick this first demo up. I think Arise Of Judgement will follow the path of their brothers in arms Purified In Blood.

1019 PAST GLORIES "Demo 2001" (cd-r)

With member of Down My Throat
Helsinki hardcore is very well known today all over the globe by quality bands like Bolt, Down My Throat and Cutdown. Among those more known bands there's of course also a whole bunch of smaller bands who aren't that well known, to add, even in our country. One of those bands who never did much more than few recordings and played some shows was Past Glories. This band featured Down My Throat's guitarist Antti, who is known as a quite genius when it comes writing songs and a from vocalist from another not so known band, now defunct, The Unloved. By the way Unloved had three vocalists, but in Past Glories vocals are done by one of those three, specificly a man known as Kalle BTBC. Drums were played by Lauri from Bolt and bass dutied were handled by Jukka, who at that time also played in Down My Throat. I just have to stop and wonder how one man can write so many darn good riffs, cause Past Glories does not fall behind even if compared to Down My Throat. Past Glories only did one demo and was featured with fellow Helsinki band, Cutdown and on a 4-way split cd titled Fuck The World (Superhero Records).

Heavy straight-edge hardcore coming from Detroit featuring ex members of xTrephinex, Driven By Fire, King of Clubz. Sick stuff, music is heavy as hell with lot of breakdowns and moshparts. Only vocals bother me, i think it 's not enough powerfull and raw, but get this shit and make your own judgement.

After a good first diy 3 songs demo, KLC's hardest are back at it again with their first selfproduced MCD "Knife leaving corpse". Seven hard-hitting tracks carved in the pure metalcore style. It goes without saying that Spitfight finds its inpiration in acts such as Kickback, All Out War, Arkangel; but the band has been able to be a bit more inventive by putting some old school parts who reminds me Knuckledust.
This debut CD is full of some great riffs, raging guitars tones and coupled with angry pissed off vocals.
Spitfight contributes a lot in bringing back Strasbourg in the french hardcore scene. Make sure to pick this CD up.

After a solid release with their first MCD, Bordeaux metalcore heroes are back at it again with a new 3 songs demo. The style is the same but a bit more violent; sometime early Deadlock comes to my mind. Crushing guitar riffs, epic and emotional tunes, enraged vocals, Lost In Battle delivers a blistering metallic hardcore assault that will leave you wanting more. I definitely recommend this cd.

864 CLAIM THE CROWN "Who s the king ?" (cd-r) pix in the database

Claim The Crown was founded in August 2005 after the vocalist, guitarist and bassist of Point The Way decided to go for a different musical direction. A new drummer who has been playing for a couple of bands such as Snippet was found in no time. A new guitar player who has been playing for a band in Sofia/Bulgaria called TRUBORN was found as well.
"Who is the king ?" is the first effort of this outfit outta Ausburg - Germany. The band plays a classic and powerfull hardcore in the vein of Hoods, Shattered Realm and Cease To Exist. It's not the new hardcore revelation but it 's enough to fuck your ass off and bring other bands to their knees. Claim The crown had already shared stages with acts such like Most Precious Blood, Turmoil, To Kill, Zero Mentality, Providence...Support them and get this shit kids !

This is THE SHIT you have to get if you are into beatdown hardcore. This belgian outfit gives us a pissed off and straight in your face heavy beatdown hardcore which completly reminds me old Crawlspace's stuff, brutal hardcore with a hint of metal, artwork with comics etc...
Each song is a bloody war, machine-gun-double-pedal, heavy incisive down tempo crowned by the rawest and nastiest vocals i have ever heard. Yes, you got it, the name of the band totally fits with the atmosphere they deliver. Keep an eye wide open on these guys, i can feel we will be soon talking about them again.

814 HANDS UPON SALVATION "Celebrate the newborn" (mcd) pix in the database mp3 in da base

Another great metallic hardcore band from Indonesia. Formely known as "Destruct", these guys have been around since 1998. After some different problems of line up, they finally found a solid one and decided to change their name into Hands Upon Salvation.
"Celebrate the newborn" is their first effort, released in 2004. The sound quality is not really good but we dont care about that ! Hands Upon Salvation plays an evil and pissed off metallic hardcore who reminds us the early H8000 hardcore style. If you are into bands like Purgatory, Deformity, Days Of Suffering, Congress...It's worth to check them out. Support the Indonesian Hardcore scene.

791 SWEAR TO GOD "2003 demo" (cd-r) pix in the database mp3 in da base

Coming straight out of Western Massachusetts, Swear To God was formed in March of 2002 by bassist Leo Lombardozzi and drummer John Gamble with the intent of bringing back hardcore into a metal saturated scene.
The band started modestly as a simple project to write a few songs and put out a demo for their clique. Needing an additional member for practices they
enlisted Neil Olinski on guitar. By July of that year, and with John pulling
triple duty on drums, vocals, and second guitar, the 3-piece had recorded a
demo worthy of representing what Swear To God could sound like. Over the course of the next year nearly 500 copies were distributed throughout the Northeast as word spread quickly about this new "brutal band".
On the strength of this demo the band played its first couple shows in western Massachusetts and Connecticut. Needing a full line up they enlisted guitarist Adam Fisher (Fear For Your Life) and original singer Nate Roshkind
(formally Connecticut's now defunct Untold Truth).
Shortly thereafter Swear To God parted ways with Nate and over the course of the next year played shows with a revolving lineup of fill-in members from such bands as Fight Night, Fear For Your Life, and Violent Reality.
The band played over a dozen shows under these circumstances in much of New England, New York, and Pennsylvania, as well as a growing number of shows at home in Western Mass where it was evident the band was gaining a loyal following.
From opening shows in the tri state region to headlining spots as far as nine hours from home in Pittsburgh and Erie, PA, Swear To God was spreading their music far and wide while getting people talking throughout the country.
After a few failed attempts at finding a full time drummer or singer, long time friend Jamie Riddle moved back home to Western Massachusetts from Brooklyn, NYC in July 2003 to become the drummer.
Swear To God recorded
songs for a second widely distributed demo during November of 2003 and soon after joined forces with Jeremy Leary who took over vocal duties.
Nevertheless, the band still went through a revolving door of member changes over the next couple years, all the while maintaining the stability to play shows. During the late spring of 2005 the band will release a split with
friends Recon and Killing Floor. Look out for an EP in the future.
If you dig heavy stuff like Hatebreed, Bulldoze, Death Threat, Swear To god is for you !

774 COUNT TO REACT "Demo 2004" (cd-r)

Paris Hardcore is back on the map with this promising new outfit. Count To React's music is a great and powerfull interchange between Metalcore and oldschool hardcore orchestred with 2 frontmen (oldschool versus newschool vocals style).
CTR has already played a bunch of shows and shared stages with bands like Kikcback, 25 Ta Life, Irate... Not a good onstage presence for the moment, but i think it s gonna change.
Watch out for these guyz, you won t be disappointed.


773 INCARNATE "A dark age of lies" (cd-r) pix in the database mp3 in da base

Incarnate has been around since 2003 and is evolved out of the ashes of Counterpart (Dutch old school hardcore not unlike Backfire!)
"A dark age of lies" is their first self-produced demo and what a promising debut ! "The band's mission: bring you some non-compromising and in your face hard rocking music." that's we can read on their biography. I think these guys easily succeeded their mission.
Incarnate structures its songs with metal slants & inciting heavy-slowed moshing hardcore powered by the rawest vocal of Netherland i ve ever heard. The result is really brutal and hard like a rolling tank. The heaviness and slowness of each track reminds me bands like Crowbar, Cease To Exist. That's what i mainly retain: HEAVY - SLOW and straight in your face. If you like moshing your ass off, check this record out.

765 START OF THE END "Terror is me" (cd-r)

Never heard of this band before receiving this cdr demo.
Start Of The end come from Cambrai in the north of France. For those who know the scene overthere, SOTE feature ex-member of Firestorm.
I dont have a bunch of infos on them, they seem to be on the road since early 2003, played the Betiz Fest 2004 and already shared stages with bands like Sworn Enemy, Knuckledust, Drowning, Bloodshot, Do Or Die just to name a few.
"Terror is me" is their first album and what a promising debut cd !!
Ten tracks which drown you in few seconds in the abyss of a dark low-rhythm deathcore mixing heavy parts with epic and metallic riffs like german bands. The whole stuff is really gloomy and oppressive; vocals are mainly turned to death metal style.
A really great and encouraging stuff which predict good things for the future.
Actually, the band is looking for a records label, so if you are interested, get in touch with them.



749 CUTDOWN "Kontula style" (cd-r) mp3 in da base

Brutal tuff guy hardcore straight out of Hellsinki-Finland. Everybody know these finnish bands: Bolt, Down My Throat, Morning you can add Cutdown on your list dood.
Cutdown was formed late 2001. After some practising Cutdown went to red 5-studios in late april 2002 to record this 4 song demo "Kontula style". 3 songs out of 4 from "Kontula style" demo were also released on a 4-way split cd with Past Glories (fin), 1 Million Thoughts (ger) and Broken Bones (UK) by Superhero-records from Germany.
"Kontula style" is in the vein of thoug guy hardcore stuff. It s not original but energy and power are here. All songs played with low tempo, heavy as hell - fast parts combined with breakdowns and moshparts. This is the band for breaking bones in da pit in Finland. Music for the pit like we say in Paris. If you are into Hatebreed, Irate, you will dig Cutdown.
One regret, the sound volume is really low. i cant wait to discover the next stuff of this band. Check em out!

After writing 2 songs, Frank and Jerry, known hereafter as PUNCHYOURFACE, still needed members and as fate would have it GFY split up. Adding hard hitting drummer Justin, bass player Myke Diesel and guitarist Matty Bones. Vocalist James Murphy (ex-25 ta Life) was added in January 2004.

612 OPPOSITION OF ONE "I try to understand this" (cd) mp3 in da base

Opposition of One's music is brutal and intense, always with a good groove and some metal influences to keep the music interesting. With fast parts, heavy breakdowns and tons of riffs you can mosh to, Opposition of One delivers everything you need to have a good time at a hardcoreshow. Take the breakdowns of Figure Four, the moshparts of Hatebreed, the heaviness of Disrespect and the groove of Madball and you will get an idea of what Opposition of One sounds like.
Founded in fall 2000 Opposition of One played many shows and big festivals like Freakstock, Christmas Rock Night, Peacedog-Fest and Rock on Rock, and played in several European countries. The band already shared stages and toured with bands like Figure Four, Norma Jean, Born From Pain, Blindside, The Blamed, Never Face Defeat, Settle The Score and made a name as a incredible liveband.
Opposition of One is built to last in a fast-paced scene and bring the spirit back with a positive christian message combined with dynamic, passionate liveshows.
Expect their debut full length in early 2004.

Backslap is a 4 piece outfit from Brooklyn NY that wield the power of early Biohazard and Rage Against the Machine on their new album, "FIND YOURSELF." A very crispy sound is a staple of this quartet, from the snap of the drums to the crunch of the guitars. With surprisingly melodic vocals, BACKSLAP do the trick if you like heavy music that isn't stupifying, but instead encourages head bobbing and banging and perhaps a windmill or two. Armed with tight breakdowns, Backslap aren't a one dimensional hardcore scream-a-thon. Instead, they mix the power of hardcore with some hard rock elements to create a solid fist raising experience.

10 ALTERKATION "Heaven hath no fury" (cd) pix in the database

Wow, this really is the discovery of the month! Alterkation play some of the loudest hardcore heard on this side of the coast... reminds me of a cross between a tuned down Earth Crisis and a meaner Hatebreed (can you imagine that?) Obviously, the Alterkation guys have spent a lot of time in perfecting their harmonies... they're always tight and heavy. Drum beats are mostly slow to mid-tempo, although some grind parts are integrated into the listening experience at a later point on the album... and they are very nice! There's also a lot of tough guy attitude felt at all time, now I'm not saying that's always a good thing, but it just so perfectly suits Alterkation... in any case, this is not an album for the faint of heart of the emo-bowl-cuts out there. Hey, notice how the album cover sports the same skull graphic as the one I used for my "back" button? Nice try, guys. Alternate Review: I really had to go at Dr. Disc to find this one. I'd personnally call it a piece of collection. How many bands had a sound that heavy in 1998? If I had to describe that record in a word, it would probably be RAW. Just listen to the vocals and you'll see what I'm talking about. Almost sounds like he's about to spill his guts out just for us. Now, it's important that you keep in mind the year it's been done. Ok. So basically, it's 8 songs packed with heavy stuff, solos to even heavier stuff covered with either deep deep or high pitched vocals. A few enjoyable sing along parts, like on "drowning in my own blood", makes the cd easier to go through. The whole generally goes on slowly with an average recording quality. Guitar solos Godbelow and Integrity style between breakdowns if you know what I mean. The lyrics have been the biggest let down though. Makes me wish I had heard them when it came out because it's nothing new now (maybe was it then). I guess that's the way it worked back in the days. Worth a moment of your attention. DIY - 1999 .

4 AGE OF RUIN "The opium dead" (tape)

Formed in Washington DC in 1998, Age of Ruin was conceived as a band that would blend the melodic elements of Scandinavian metal with the brutality of the heavy American hardcore scene. This endeavor was begun as a four piece consisting of the melodic metal six string styling of guitarist Daniel Fleming along with a crushing rhythm section consisting of drummer Pat Owens and bassist Chris Fleming overarched by the intensity of vocalist Derrick Kozerka.

With the release of the 1998 demo soon after their inception, Age of Ruin played live regularly clenching opportunities to share the stage with national and international metal and hardcore acts such as In Flames, Dillinger Escape Plan, ZAO, Bane, Saves the Day, Hatebreed, and countless others. In 2000, the band put forth their first self-released full length,

2 AFTER ALL "S/t" (mcd)

Even though these guys are from Kentucky, I believe they are one of the best hardcore bands that plays the Cincinatti area. They are a extreme conglomerate of metal/hardcore/aggressive music.
Cincinnati Hardcore at its finest.
