Not to be confused with the (nu-)metal band out of Brooklyn, NY that surfaced a few years later, this Dust To Dust was based out of the Selinsgrove/Williamsport area in Pennsylvania. I think they were a pretty short-lived band, aside from possible demos they did only this 'Burial Of Hope' MCD that I'm aware of. This awesome 6-song slice of late 90s metalcore was released on Undecided Records out of Florida in 1999. I don't know why this band didn't get the attention they deserved, but I seem to recall seeing this MCD a fair bit at the time at various distro's (altho with my shitty memory it was probably always the same distro, and nobody picked it up except me, hah). I'm glad I picked it up tho, this ticks all the right checkboxes. If anybody has any info on this band or the band members, please do share!
The 'We'll Never Be Tamed' hardcore compilation CD was the first release on Mad Mob Records out of Berlin, Germany, a label started by the drummer of hardcore band Charley's War. It was recorded at a show at Berlin's legendary SO 36 club, and features 3 bands from Berlin (Murdered Art, Punishable Act and 3rd Statement) and one from Kassel (Brightside). Mostly representing what was known as 'Eurocore' (with bands like Ryker's and Right Direction as well-known names), it's a great document of that side of the Berlin & German hardcore scene at the time. That's not to say that that was all Germany had to offer, far from it, don't get me wrong! Also props to Punishable Act, who are still a pretty active band, almost 25 years after they first started playing. In any case, if yer interested in checking out some Eurocore, enjoy!
...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.
