Youth of Today

Classic band from the 80s. Ignited the whole Youthcrew period. Bit faster then most youthcrew and a voice which totally rips; "Make a chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaange". BDTW is a classic, but the other album is just as good.

Break Down The Walls
We're Not In This Alone


90s thrashy hardcore punk. Bit crappy recordings, but still more then enjoyable.

Zann is a chaotic hardcore band with screamo influences from Germany founded in 1999. They sprang out of the late 90s hardcore scene in eastern Germany. For the kids by the kids is their Discography cd and includes all vinyl releases until 2004 and the demotape. Three years in the desert is their Brutal bleak Hardcore with Screamo influenced full-length released in 2006.

Army of Flying Robots

AoFR was an UK hardcore band. Their brand of screamo is very harsh and chaotic. Just imagine screamo mix up with Phoenix Bodies and Combatwoundedveteran.



And yet another 90s emo band with a life span less then 5 years. I don't know why, but I like the instrumental song(Bored) the most.



90s harcore emo. Fast stuff, with more hardcore-influences then a lot of their peers had.



90s emo. They were around for just a small amount of years, but left us with these songs to listen to.

Fast German Punkrock. Seeing them this Saturday. I hope they'' fullfil my expectations!

The 35 minute blitz

Green River

This is grunge, you know that mix of hardrock and punkrock. Members would later be in Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam (yikes) and Mudhoney (!, which reminds me I will do a post on them soon).

Chaotic emo from Germany. Lyrics are in German which gives it another dimension.

Kinder der Zukunft

Hour of the Star

90s emo. This band had really great lyrics, "I would rather be ashes than dust" is stuck in my head forever. Just 4 songs (including a intro) which sucks, because I really would want to hear more.

Hour of the Star


90s Metalcore. Instead of the hardline message of other vegan sXe bands like Earth Crisis, this band was pro-choice. It featured the mighty Chris Colohan.

Negative Approach

Yeah another band with negative. This is even better stuff, I guess most of you will have heared of this band.

Negative FX / Last Rights

Negative FX was an 80s hardcorepunk band from Boston, featuring Choke who would later on be in a famous hardcore band called Slapshot. Many have overlooked this band, but this stuff is good. Songtitles are mixed up, sorry.

Government War Plans
Negative FX

Last Rights was also a 80s hardcorepunk band, featuring Negative FX members. I don't think Choke was in this band though. Dinosaur Jr. covered their song Chunks.

Eat Skull

Eat Skull are a quartet hailing from Portland, Oregon and runs a post pattern deep beyond pop and punk. Their sound is a mix between lo-fi, punk and noise. (Hands down) Wild and Inside is definitely one of the best albums of 2009.


Wild and Inside
Sick to Death
Dead Families
Eat Skull

Morning Again

Vegan sXe Metalcore. For fans of the 90s scene (Kindred, Culture, Chokehold etc).


German 90s Metalcore (or Newschool Hardcore). This is sadly all of their songs they've released. I wish more bands would sound this way: less chugga chugga if you know what I mean. More focus on 'being intense' then 'being heavy'.

One of those classic emo-violence bands. (this is actually one of the few bands which 'emo-violence' actually applies to, lots of bands without PV influences get called emo-violence when they shouldn't be).

Dutch slow black metal (or Funeral Doom?). I don't know, this band is really unique. Music for the ill minds.
