i'm watching Headbanger's Ball right now, which is 99% hardcore, and wow i sure do hate all these bands... if i ever heard a band that does swedish metal/emo singy part/screamy part thing again i swear to god i'll stick my head in the oven. i mean, what do all these 19-year old kids from south jersey and connecticut have to be so angry about anyway?

 

ps i still like hatebreed

I had to tune in and check out the new breed of "hardcore" bands since I'm an old school fan (Killing Time , SOIA, Sheer Terror, Burn, AF, GB, etc)

WTF!

Interesting but hope there's room in that oven for me :D

aaah, How I wish for one of those Sepultura shows of back in the day

Igor's drum skills are just sick!! Watching them in concert is an experience :D

 

I dig Hatebreed as well, Cool to see them do their thing.

I completely lost touch with the scene. You still follow the underground stuff?

:shock: Yeah like what sermon of mockery said why are they so angry? You think living in a suburb 18 + years of your life would be something to be happy about. Kind of remind me of the osbournes there so angry yet there so rich. :D Trust me these 85% of hardcore bands had a easy life growing up there music doesnt reflect anything they went through in there life. It reminds me of 85% of these rappers who say there so gangsta but dont have a criminal record. There all (50 cent, chingy, hatebreed, good charlotte etc-- to many to list) losers tring to appeal to the mindless masses or dumb asses who purchase there bullcrap.

i'm really invovled with HC, and trust me, nobody i know considers those bands hardcore. there is some really great current bands, but i stick to alot of the older stuff like madball, judge, youth of today, b4b,af, etc.

 

i didnt expect to see this thread on here to tell you the truth!

hehe,

Dude, Judge rules !!

 

Yeah, I don't consider these MTV bands hardcore either, I was just curious to see what they were about. I see Biohazard is still kicking it. Too bad I don't dig their new stuff much. I read Evan Seinfeld is married to Tera Patrick, I figured he had quit the band and started in the porn business.

 

I saw YOT a couple of months back. It was great to see them live for the

first time ever. Ray, Porcell and Sammy ripping shit.

Definitely some good times

i went to that show too, in PA? it was cool to see Mouthpiece too, even if they were kinda shitty. YOT was way, way better than when i saw them do their last reunion thingy back in 99 up in CT. sammy was on fire at that PA show! he's one of the best drummers out there, it was a bummer to see him playing to a bunch of 17 year olds at a rented hall for probably like $400 or something.

 

i'm not so into the new bands that do the YOT style, but i do like all the old revelation/schism stuff from 15-20 years ago. i still remember the first time i heard hardcore was seeing a SOIA video on a local cable show back in 89, i still love their first album and they're still fun to see live.

lol

damn! schism! You took me way back :D

 

I saw YOT in FL. Yeah, Sammy is intense on the drums. Him, Drew (Bold) and Alan Cage(Burn, Beyond) were always standouts.

it was a bummer to see him playing to a bunch of 17 year olds at a rented hall for probably like $400 or something.

yeah, I hear ya, same way down here. Depressing actually.

But, it was cool. It's tough going to shows these days.

Down here in Miami the shows got way out of hand.

i still love their first album and they're still fun to see live.

Definitely! :D Saw them about year ago as well with Shai Halud.

I think SOIA's first album was by far the best as well.

Hey, how about dropping "Injustice System" on a reel :lol:

I just want to know one thing. Why are they so angry? What are they fighting over or for and why are they so pissed off? Maybe its me, but what would make middle class kids in the suburbs so angry? :D

o man.... it's been a while

 

i don't have the stomach for 1,2 1,2 repetitive straight edge anymore but man there were some bands in the mid nineties that put out some classic records that i can still get down to when i'm in the right mood.

 

That string of Revelation 7"s... Quicksand, Inside Out, Burn. Turning Point / No Escape split 7" on Temperance. The Ressurrection 7" w/ Pretty Love on it. Supertouch LP on Rev? Classic record... so good. The Lincoln / Hoover split on Watermark. Hoover LP on Dischord. Kiss it Goodbye, Unsane, Deadguy... I can still fuck with all of that stuff.

 

I'm sure you PA guys remember the Unisound show's with the mini ramp in the back, made the treck up there a few times from Maryland. Saw some of the best live shows i'll probably ever see during that time period. Burn, No Escape, and Turning Point [last D.C. show] at St. Stephens in D.C. Quicksand at the old 9:30 right after Slip dropped. Worlds Collide about 50 times in 2 years all over D.C. and MD haha... Even Rage's first show at 9:30 before there lp dropped and it was all hardcore kids who had the lp from tape trading.... ahhh the memories, the memories.

 

That scene seems long dead to me... Mainstream music co-opted so much of it that it seemed to sap it all out and everything just became a complete recycling even more-so than it already had been. Glad i got to experience music in that way for even a short period of time.

Hellz yeah!

Turning Point Lp is still a classic to me.

 

Those bands brought something fresh to hardcore.

You could see that they branching out from the 3 chord songs.

 

Same for Into Another. Way ahead of their time.

although i wouldn't really call them hardcore per se there were some other bands doing really innovative, cool stuff back then that i still listen to like bloodlet, iceburn, man is the bastard, and like you said into another. i have been listening to quicksand quite a bit this week too. great record.

Yeah that Turning Point LP is a good record. Just different enough to be interesting and stand out from the other sxe stuff.

 

Into Another was crazy.. I hated them at first. That first album was just metal to me, wasn't into it at all. Then i saw them just as Ignaurus was coming out and they were so good live that it finally clicked for me.

 

Iceburn was another great one... saw them play once... they improved off of there take on rites of spring... blending into herbie hancock's rocket and a few sabbath tracks by the end of the set. super interesting to see live... even though only 15 people showed up. only thing with them was once i heard king crimson i figured out where all there good ideas came from :)

 

i thought some of bloodlet was cool, but i could never get past the growls. Quicksand's first lp is so classic... what the hell went wrong for them with that second one? it was a huge letdown.

is manic compression the second one? i like that one the best, "east 3rd street" is my jam.

 

did you ever hear Handsome? they sounded a whole lot like an update on quicksand, their LP was really great but pretty much bombed. they had petey hines from cro-mags on drums, rob from helmet on guitar, tom from beyond on guitar, dude from iceburn singing, great stuff.

Yeah Manic Compression is the 2nd one... I don't know, it never measured up to Slip imo. I'll have to look for Handsome, that sounds like an interesting lineup... that dude Tom Capone was the guitarist for Quicksand too i think. I just saw something on MTV the other day talking about this bossa nova style project with the drummer from Cro-mags... same band?

no, the handsome record came out like 7 or 8 years ago (jesus christ i feel old). it sounds basically like a heavier version of "manic compression" with kind of helmet groove to it in places. i really dig it. i don't know anything about any bossa nova project??? that sounds weird though, but he's a good drummer so maybe he could pull it off.

Yeah, same here with Into Another. Hated them at first but once I saw them live I was blown away. I've been rockin' them all month. One of my top ten.

 

I never got to hear handsome but a bunch of friends have mentioned them before. Got to check them out. I think Tom Capone made a big difference in every band he was in.

 

Speaking of Cro-Mags, John Joseph was recently down here in FL doing shows with his new band(forget the name, I didn't get to see them :( ) doing Cro-Mag covers. Back in the day, my band (Mindframe) opened for the Cro-Mags. :lol: The highlight of our music career :lol:

Funny how 'hardcore' describes a totally different kind of music over here in .nl, but I'll spare you the unpleasant details.
