No, this is not the current Lifeline that is fronted by Don Foose of the Spudmonsters. This particular Lifeline was formed in 1997 in Massachusetts and as far as I know only did some demo's and this MCD. Information on this band is quite scarce, so if anybody has any more info, please leave a comment, this band seems to have gone completely under the radar. This MCD was released in 1998 by Break Even Point Records, a prolific Italian hardcore/punk label that released records by European bands as well as US bands like Endpoint, Backlash and Lifetime. Lifeline played an odd mix of raw and fast East coast hardcore with almost youth crew like vocals. It doesn't work 100%, and the vocals are definitely the weakest part of the band, but I've also heard worse. But more burly and gruff vocals definitely would've worked better with this band. Still tho, give it a shot.
...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.
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.
