Seize To Hate was a hardcore band from Holyoke, MA that recorded this demo in the summer of 1994. Rough hardcore with raspy, burly vocals that are mixed with some pretty strange vocals from time to time that don't fit the music at all. I can't say this is the best demo I've ever heard, to put it mildly, but hey, I doubt many people outside of Western Mass ever heard of this band, let alone heard this demo, so I'm posting it for obscurity's sake, hah. The band would manage to release a CD later that year or in early 1995 called '94 Hatecore' on a local label called Fear The Dead Records, which I don't have. Fear The Dead operated out of Holyoke, MA as well, so it might have been their own label? I couldn't find any information on what the band members did before/after this band, if anybody has some info, please do share.
...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.
