Here are 2 7"s by the New Jersey band Time's Up. They were around in the mid 90s. After doing 2 demo's sometime around 1993, which I don't have, they managed to do 2 7"s which I posted here. As far as I know that's all they did, I'm not sure if they even appeared on a compilation? The band itself isn't too well-known, but guitarists Chris Rascio and John Adubato would play in Burnt By The Sun after Time's Up folded (Adubato forming BBTS and Rascio joining later), and Burnt By The Sun was awesome. Time's Up isn't quite on BBTS's level, but they were pretty damn good still. Creative, off-beat & dissonant metal/hardcore with fairly straight forward shouted vocals.
The first 7", 'At Ease', was released in 1994 or 1995 on Happy Days Records. Happy Days Records would also release Endeavor' '...Of Equality' 7", with Mike Olender on vocals, who would later on do vocals in Burnt By The Sun. The second 7", 'Discernment', was released on Chainsaw Safety Records in 1996. It is more complex than the first 7", and has got some pretty sick parts. The first 7" is great, the second 7" is even better. So give this band a shot, you won't regret it.
BTW, sorry for the shitty quality of the 'At Ease' rip, my vinyl copy is in pretty rough shape. I did what I could to clean it up a bit.
...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.
