Instigate - Darkside Forces 7"

Instigate was a short-lived metalcore band from the French-speaking part of Belgium, Wallonia... Unfortunately for them, and almost all bands from Wallonia, their region never got as much attention and recognition as the Flemish and Brussels scenes. Which is a shame, Instigate had a great sound that fit in well with the metallic hardcore that was played all over Belgium at the time, with some really strong vocals that went from hardcore screams to almost Kickback-like vocals. If you have any sort of affinity with the Belgian metalcore scenes like the H8000 or Brussels bands, you might be pleasantly surprised by Instigate. Instigate's 'Darkside Forces' 7" is their only release I know of. It was released in 1999 on Hell Child Records, itself a small local label. Do check it out, this is a really solid 7".

I believe their singer later became the second vocalist for Do Or Die. Good 7" indeed. The first DOD-single was also great btw.
