MADBALL: (NYC Hardcore Giants)
Ask any two people to describe what Hardcore is all about, especially in 2014, and the volume of responses will blow your head clear off of your shoulders. Neither Ian MacKaye; nor Mike Muir, nor any member of the Bad Brains would even want to try to explain it. This scene of ours is misunderstood to the nth degree, and all too often, the wrong party is left trying to school the uninitiated as to its characteristics. Attempting to put New York Hardcore into its proper context may be even tougher. Regardless, most will agree that the NYHC sound – the one most often associated with its scene – begins with Agnostic Front, and if you don’t already know the kinship between Madball and AF, you should probably do the knowledge.
Brick By Brick: (NY Metal/Hardcore)
Brick By Brick has been around for a few years and is unrelenting. BxB is a blue collar hardcore/metal hybrid based out of Upstate NY. In 2014 Ray Mazzola (from Full Blown Chaos) was added as vocalist and immediately went into the studio. BxB released “This World, My Enemy” in 2015 through Eulogy Recordings.
Life On Trial: (Ottawa Hardcore)
Life on Trial will be back in action in 2016 with a new line-up featuring our friend Jean on bass! Pushing back boundaries and advancing into metal territory, we dared to venture into the old Earache and Roadrunner records catalog of our youth to write our new release coming your way next spring!
