Implode was a New Jersey hardcore band which was formed in 1996 by 2 brothers, Mark & Brian Conforti, who had previously played together in an old school hardcore band called Emotive Drive from the late '80s to the early '90s (Emotive Drive released a 7" on Revelation Time Records in '89). In 1997 Implode recorded and released the demo I ripped here. There were some line-up changes afterwards where Mark would also take over vocal duties, besides playing guitar, and the band would also get a new bass-player. With this new line-up the band would record and self-release a full-length CD in 1999. I do not have that CD unfortunately, so if anybody can hook me up I'd appreciate it. They also appeared on a number of compilations. The band quit in 2002. Mark Conforti would later on be the driving force behind the infamous Guerilla Warfare video fanzines. Members of Implode moved on to bands like Flat Earth Society and Stand Alone.
...is a '90s hardcore blog, tho there might be some exceptions. Just some records and demo's from that era that I feel need to be heard. Despite the over-abundance of '90s hardcore mp3 blogs, and punk & hardcore mp3 blogs in general, I will try to put music on here that is worthwhile and isn't featured on other blogs.
If you're in a new band that is in some way inspired by 90s hardcore (of any kind), and want me to write something about your band as a 'new blood' feature, contact me here. No guarantees tho, my time is limited and I might not like your band anyways.
I also post photos of my record collection, among other things, on Instagram as @xhcnoirx. Check it out and follow me if you feel like it.
If you see a missing download you are interested in, leave a comment and I'll try to re-up it asap.
If bands or labels want their stuff removed, let me know.
Vegan sXe hardcore fanatic. My fave music is '90s metallic hardcore, however I listen to all kinds of hardcore, from '80s DC hardcore to '90s emo to current beatdown and pretty much anything inbetween. And yes, I love 108.
