If you've been following my blog over the years you might have noticed I regularly bought/buy records of bands I don't know based solely on the artwork. Take Crossfire from the UK. I used to see their 'Lost' 7" regularly in random distro's and eventually bought it simply because of the way it looked, it interested me. It's not a classic, but it's good, so no regrets, haha... The 7" is pretty decent, mixing an old school sound with a more slowed down 90s sound. The well-written socio-political lyrics deal with subjects like women's rights and religious fanaticism. The 7" was released in 1993 on RPN Records out of Germany.
In recent years I also managed to pick up their demo from 1992 on one of my visits to the UK, either at All Ages in London or Punker Bunker in Brighton (both awesome record stores well worth visiting if you're ever in London or Brighton!). More old school sounding than the 7", it's still a nice listen. The guitars have a nice heavy crunch to them, giving the demo a slight crossover feel. Anyways, despite seeing their 7" all the time over the years, I
still know nothing about them, hahaha... If anybody has some more info on this band, 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.
