Here's a fairly obscure compilation 7" I came across recently. Released on Brick Records in 1996, it features 4 quite distinct bands, making this a somewhat weird, but also very cool compilation that showcased 2 Massachusetts bands, Intent To Injure and Lockdown, and 2 bands from Rhode Island, Time's Expired and Temperance. Brick Records was, and still is, (co-)run by Josh Gagne of Intent To Injure, who also goes by the name Truth Elemental. The label is still around but releases hiphop/rap records. I don't know if there were any other hardcore releases on Brick Records? ITI do a Black Flag cover here, decent enough but it doesn't really stand out. Time's Expired's song is great groovy new school hardcore with rap vocals, the song was taken from their self-titled 7". Lockdown was a hardcore band which had broken up in '94 or so, but got back together again. This was their first recording since reforming I believe. Excellent heavy tuned down metallic hardcore, I wish I had more of their material. Temperance's song was taken from their self-titled 7", great mix of emo and metallic new school hardcore. A sweet compilation all in all. Enjoy!
...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.
