Here is one of many benefit compilations that were released in the 90s. Released in 1997 by the Mountain Collective and Fallout Records (altho on my copy there's a small Mountain sticker covering the Fallout name and address), this was a suicide awareness benefit, with proceeds going to suicide prevention centers around the NY & NJ states (where both labels as well as the bands were from). Speaking of the bands, this comp features a song each by So I Had To Shoot Him, C.R., Devoid Of Faith and The Judas Iscariot. If you're familiar with the bands, you know what to expect: short, fast and frantic bursts of harsh grinding hardcore/punk. At barely 6 and a half minutes long, this comp is over before you know. All bands are well worth checking out, and aside from Devoid Of Faith's contribution I believe these tracks only appear on this comp (and C.R.'s discography CD, duh). In typical 90s fashion, the insert has some additional writing on the subject, as well as a reflective 'mirror' with 'You are unique, unprecedented and unrepeatable' printed underneath it. It may come off as corny nowadays, but they really don't make em like this anymore. Hell, there's even a small note apologizing for a fuck up in the insert's layout. Yep, people were actually polite in the 90s! 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.
