4 In Tha Chamber was a hardcore band out of the Bronx, NYC. They were formed in 1996 by Dave Mitchell (ex-Without A Cause/Fahrenheit 451), and in 1997 their 'Unstable Foundation' MCD was released on Extreme Championship Wreckords. ECW (a reference to then-popular Extreme Championship Wrestling) was a label run by 4ITC's singer Jon. Heavy & semi-groovy NYHC with a slight rap-influence, 4ITC had their own sound going on. They had some problems with their line-up and commitments outside of the band, causing the band to go through several periods of inactivity. In 2000 they released a full-length called 'Existence' on Kingfisher Records and even toured Europe in 2001. Shortly thereafter the band pretty much quit, but then reformed a few years later, with a new singer, and a heavier sound, under the name 4 In The Chamber. This resulted in the excellent 'Memories Die' CD in 2007, which they released themselves again. After that CD the band folded but again reformed a few years later, this time under the name Unstable Foundation. Under that name they released one album that I know of, which I unfortunately do not own. The last thing I heard of Unstable Foundation is that they were looking for a new singer.
Anyways, if anybody has their other stuff (especially their split with As They Die on Moosestyle Records, from 1999), please leave a comment.
...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.
