XWASTEX

Here is Sweden latest straight edge hardcore band I’ve been listening to lately – XWASTEX from Göteborg. They just put out this really cool six-songs demo tape; raw riffing style, heavy breakdowns and intense mosh parts, what could be more more natural than adding some extra pissed/rabid singing? Great demo, thanks Alexis (Offside Records) for the hook-up!

SPLITKNUCKLE

SPLITKNUCKLE is the very first hardcore/beatdown band I’ve been listening to in AGES. I must admit I really dislike this kind of music but I was surprised by the among of people linked with UKHC bands mentionned in DROIDxRAGE, some of them have already answered to interviews here, who seemed to be fond of this band. That’s the main reason I wanted to ask them a few questions, and also because this EP “Nothing Left Unsaid” is a pretty cool record!

SOCIETY ABUSE

I did this interview with singer Tyler a few months ago; SOCIETY ABUSE comes from Jacksonville, Florida, they released “No Pleasure” demo in 2014 and their ST 7″ on Mind Rot Records on 2015. Watch out: this band is part of the new breed of American hardcore punk bands, mixing elements of 80s Boston/NYHC with an incredible energy and dedication to traditional hardcore spirit!

AXIS

interview with Dylan (guitar)

by Jean

AXIS reminds me what was very popular when I got into hardcore in the early 00s. Something really chaotic, similar to metal but flirting with different emotions, bands like CONVERGE or COALESCE were at their peak at that time and dozens of bands all around the world were trying – unsuccessfully if you want my opinion – to copy ’em. I’m not anymore in that kind of music but I’ve seen many blogs and people sharing this record on social networks and it TO-TAL-LY rips! Check it out!

IMPACT, interview with Ryan

 

IMPACT’s a brand new band from Staten Island NY which has already recorded their first demo and EP. These two releases sound really different: they came up as a youth crew band (singing absolutely not posi things though!) and now, they sound a bit rougher, they remind me that 90s vibe of NYHC bands. The kind of shit I love!

A tribute to 1988 + interview = VISUAL DISCRIMINATION

by Jean

Recently I was checking the list of  1988 records I fill from time to time to write my “A tribute to 1988” columns and, by a curious quirk of fate, it happened that we got an e-mail from Tim Sawyer, singer of Los Angeles/Orange County based VISUAL DISCRIMINATION, a band which had released in 1988 a top LP on Nemesis Records titled “Step Back And Listen” I was actually very keen on reviewing and explain why this very specific record is important to me.
