Best Ukrainian hardcore band ever!!! It was fucking hard to describe them with my poor English) At first I saw them 1.5 years ago in Ivano - Frankivsk. They should play with have Heart and some other bands. Maybe thet was their debut show. Well they were the best that day! When I hear Time To Realize I pick up on stage and had great time there)
There were some shows after that too. Aspire also played great covers - Outspoken, Strife etc. Every show I visited was awesome! So much energy from stage! Clever words from stage!
In November 2009 they present their debut CD.
You all should check them!!! They are really nice guys - trust me!
aspire - 2009 - st EP (self x true records)
And want to give my big thanks for guys from Aspire - all that you are doing with your music is very important.
Everyone who hasn't listen this band yet - should check this
Great 90's influenced newschool hardcore band from Moscow. They have only 2 tracks demo. It is in the vein of late Outspoken. Also they changed vocals and it sounds much more better - I was on their 2 live shows and they were one of the best bands of that shows! I really hope they will make some new recordings in future!

Holy shit! This seven inch is really driving. One of the first New Age releases.
First song Can We Win is my favourite of all Mouthpiece stuff. No more words - just listen this!

My good friends from Kiev. They released fucking great CD this year. They play angry metalcore with awesome melodic riffs and take some influence from such bands like Unbroken, Focal Point but play a little bit in modern style. I was many times on their live shows and that was one of the best hardcore shows for me. Really great guys! Check them now! Cult and Words Of Majority are the best songs on this CD for my opinion.
And also the best artwork I ever see!
time of defeats - 2010 - st CD (incarnate records)
One of the best russian bands for me. 90's influenced metalcore in the vein of Morning Again, Arkangel, Culture etc. Constanta CD is awesome! I know that they will put out last seven inch and RIP.
verdict - 2007 - demo (self x true records)
verdict - 2008 - constanta (self x true records)
verdict & hoy es el dia & shiver - 2009 - split CD (self x true records)
Vegan straight edge metalcore from Moscow in the vein of Green Rage, Abnegation, Culture etc. I saw them live this summer and they were really great and angry. On this release quality of recording isn't good but it really sounds like playing in 1994))) Great artwork, great message.
iration - 2010 - demo CD (go mind records)

Great band from New Jersey which played downtempo melodic emo hardcore. This seven nch was released on Redemption Records - singer Jason Jordan was head there. Also they had split seven inches with Blindfold and Crivits - I'll post them a little bit later.

I will really pray for Outspoken... But Mike Hartsfield - if you will send packages not so long as you do that now, if you will sometimes answer for emails - you will really be cool man. But at the moment it is so boring to wait 3 months for my order and weeks for email answers....
outspoken - 1990 - look beyond (temperance records)
outspoken - 1990 - survival (new age records)
outspoken - 1992 - a light in the dark (new age records)
outspoken - 1994 - current (new age records)
So many emotions...So burning guitars...So crying voices...
My favourite seven inches from Initial records...

enkindel & empathy - 1995 - split 7'' (initial records)
