Hardcore is not only good music, it's also great lyrics and political message.

Liar is a straight edge hardcore band from the H8000 scene in Belgium. Early ’90s they introduced influences of thrash, black and death metal in hardcore, when there were only emo and youthcrew bands on European soil. Debut cd Falls of Torment was released through Goodlife Recordings in ‘95 and shook the scene with it’s heavy Slayer-influenced hardcore.

In ‘97 Invictus was released, one of the best metallic hardcore albums ever from Europe and far beyond. In ‘99 Deathrow Earth was released which is considered their darkest album. After this album guitarist and co-founder Josh Fury left the band to focus on CONGRESS. 2 guitarists replaced him. In 2001 Liar’s Hell was released on Alveran Records, and in 2005 Murder Manifesto on GSR Music, which was very brutal, dark and black metalcore alike.

In 2006 Liar called it quits. They also released some split cd’s, toured Europe lots of times, toured Japan, and still live the vegan/veggie straight edge lifestyle.

In 2008 however they announced a comeback.

pain runs deep

Pain Runs Deep did really start in late 90s, recorded a decent MCD, gigged a bit and went into a long hiatus to be back among the living in 2008. Refreshed, rejuvanted and reinforced they delivered bunch of quality shows, crushing all over the place, getting enormous feedback from the crowd who turned out to be totally new generation of hardcore kids with few of those who stage dove to their songs when they were around for the first time. Show after show, the excitment grew and many kids travelled from all over the country to enjoy their wild stage performance along with the message shouted loud. What seemed to be one time “let’s get together and have some fun at shows” type of thing made them go record few new tunes to encapsulate the energy they drawn from the shows and express their current state of mind - musically and lyrically.

Heavier than ever, highly structured, yet groovy hard hitting riffs, backed by furious vocals is what they created. What they’ve loved listening to hardcore for their lives, they simply poured into their music - from Cro-Mags through Burn, Conviction and Leeway to Burn It Down. Lyrically - still critical look at this world we live in, screaming for balance, harmony and reason.

This is one of my favourite bands. Really I don't know why they aren't so known as Drift Again for example. They played pre-90's newschool melodic hardcore in the vein of Encounter, Another Wall, Forced Down, Amenity. 12'' called Drift is the best from their releases. Check them for sure. Also later I will post few their seven inches too.

the swarm

This was one of the best bands from Canada after Chokehold. The Swarm played original mix of 90's metalcore, black and thrash metal with elements of powerviolence. Also they are political minded and very very angry. Chris Colohan of Cursed, Left For Dead, Ruination, and Fucked Up played here too. Just check this band and I am sure you will like it.

set adrift, one truth records

This record is like a story of a storming soul clinging to its
feelings and dreams and trying to escape extinction through
self-knowledge. This is the story of everyone of us left in the
darkness surrounded by the whisper of hopelessness. The only
possibility to survive here is to never let the inner light wane,
never let any sufferings suppress the heart beat but believe that we
can find those who are similar to us. Those deeply hurt but ready to
fight for their own way. The way we can light together and for each
Since the debut 7" record was issued, Set Adrift still give us the
sgnals just like a beacon through the storm. Preludes of noise and
acoustic guitar parts immerse us into specific atmosphere the new 12"
record is surrounded by. This is the music in the best traditions of
the 90-s hardcore (Shield, Temperance, Mean Season), where each song
turns out to be a message brought to us by the sea waves and each line
of each songs is ready to be sang by the chorus of voices and gifted
to the eternity.

New Set Adrift songs will soon be available on cassettes and CDs at
Reason Records and on 12" at One Truth Records, Ukraine, TRVS Records
and Hidden Rainbows Records, Russia. Pressing info - 20 test presses
(black) with special test press cover, 75 blue, 75 red, 75 green
coloured vinyl, 50 black vinyl records, 25 black records with special
edition cover. Collection pack (6 records) will be available only
through One Truth Records. Contacts: .Listen

set adrift, one truth records

Эта запись -- как история о бушующей душе, которая спасается от
угасания через самопознание, цепляясь за свои чувства и мечты. Это
история про каждого из нас -- оставленных в темноте и окружённых
шёпотом безнадёжности. Единственная возможность остаться здесь в живых
-- не дать угаснуть свету внутри, не позволить страданиям заглушить
биение сердца и верить в то, что мы сможем найти себе подобных. Таких
же истерзанных и готовых бороться за свой путь. Путь, который мы
вместе сможем осветить друг для друга.
После выпуска дебютной 7" пластинки Set Adrift продолжает подавать нам
сигналы, как маяк сквозь морской шторм. Новая 12" запись окружена
особой атмосферой, в которую нас погружают шумовые вступления и
акустическая гитара. Это музыка, впитавшая в себя лучшее от наследия
групп 90-х (Shield, Temperance, Mean Season), где каждая песня
разворачивается как будто послание, принесённое волнами. И каждая
строчка этих песен уже готова быть пропета хором и подарена

New Set Adrift songs will be available soon on cassettes and CD’s on Reason Records and on 12’’ on One Truth Records in Ukraine, TRVS Records and Hidden Rainbows Records in Russia. Pressing info – 20 test presses on black with test press special cover, 75 on blue, 75 on red, 75 on green, 50 on black, 25 on black with special edition cover.

The New Jersey-based hardcore band Endeavor comprised vocalist Mike Olender, guitarists Kevin Tunney and Mike Duffy, bassist Mark Zeveney and drummer Mike Rummel. After issuing their debut Crazier Than a Shithouse Rat on the Conversion label in 1997, they signed to Trustkill for the follow-up Constructive Semantics, released later that same year.

Awesome band which used to play chaotic 90's newschool hardcore. Love them very much!!!

...and so it was, late in the spring of 1991 in a musty basement in colonia, what was to become one of jersey's most underrated hardcore bands was borne into existence. consisting of justin flemm on drums, john stanley on guitar and eric tisch sharing 2nd guitar and vocal duties, they borrowed good friend dan sobon's bass player nate gluck to round out the line up. 2 months, 7 songs and 1 demo later they began having trouble with justin blowing off practices and showing a lack of interest. they quickly replaced him with pat tanzola whom john and eric had previously been in bands with. eric dropped playing 2nd guitar, concentrated on his vocal stylings and in april 1992 they recorded a 7 song cassette called "viewpoint" which they released on their own label, re-action records. as time passed they began to realize that having a 2nd guitar player would beef up the sound, so the decision went through to pick up long standing friend and fan dan sobon, resulting in the musical reunion of dan and nate. having come from the wrong side of the tracks in the burgeoning central hersey hardcore scene, so to speak, they constantly fought hard for shows to play. in the early days they threw shows in the basement at john's house and affectionately dubbed them "terror in the basement". later days showed nate and john setting up weekly shows at the down under in new brunswick for a solid 10 month period. they began to build up a strong following by bringing in all different kinds of kids, people who were not concerned with who you knew or how cool you were. playing shows in the tri-state area and watching the scene begin to flourish and thrive once more, having themselves played an integral part in the rebirth and refortification of the jersey scene, they decided to head westward to play shows with new friends unbroken and outspoken. they found the west warm and inviting and revisited there a few more times. with failed attempts at finding the right record label, they continued to release their own material. they finally came into their own with "hold on" and the self-titled 5 song 7 inch on orphaned records, winning over even their harshest critics. people began to realize the emotion, persistence and potential they possessed. they proved time and time again their dedication to the scene. throughout their 5 year existence they have shared the stage with likes of sick of it all, the bad brains, leeway, d.r.i., vision, outspoken, shades apart, h2o, unbroken, shelter, dog eat dog, breakdown, the cromags, lifetime, mouthpiece, ressurection, strife, warzone (r.i.p.-raybeez), ignite, function, blackspot, farside, 108, bloodlet, coalesce, crown of thornz, bulldoze, murphy's law, 25 ta life, ashes, slapstick, christie front drive and countless local bands across the united states. as the days turned into months and then to years they slowly began to destroy themselves from the inside out. with the problems revolving around the failed attempt to release their cd, they called it quits in june 1996, almost 5 years to the day. on november 9, 1996 they played a final show at middlesex county college. from the few kids at their first show to the nearly 700 at their last, they proved you can do it your own way without anyone's help. they reunited in january 1999 to play a benefit show for good friend and big fan matt leveton.

as for the members and where they are now...

dan sobon went on to form for the love of... and currently plays in a band called she's still breathing.

john stanley also played in for the love of..., ex number five and is currently rocking out in my shining one.

nate gluck played in for the love of..., vision, weapon x and is currently playing in ensign and the fire still burns.

eric tisch is a union ironworker.

pat tanzola is a postman.

"we don't need you cause there are some still true. the feeling burns inside, something called hardcore pride" (hold on)

forced down

Forced Down was a band that started, essentially out of members of many other bands It became an idea, the idea became a sound, the sound had a look and identity… And it was all built out of what was not happening in our local scene… It never wanted a Label, it never wanted a scene, it wanted to be for everyone… This, at the very time the “scene” was becoming more and more cliquish… we would not…from our artwork to our recordings and our interviews… we were only to be, a band called forced down… The band started in motion by Mike Down and Joey Piro…Mike was singing in local H/C heros “Amenity” who were based out of the south of San Diego in Chula Vista, (all thou he lived in Pacific Beach) and Joey was playing drums in SD Legends PitchFork… Led by John Reese, but based round, and practicing in the North County region of Encinitas…Mike would drive up with John and attend practices, tape recording their songs… He and Joey would talk about similar interests in music which led to them jamming out with a couple bass players…In the blink of and eye they decided to form a band… MIke brought in good friend and singer Rob Osbourne to fill vocal duties and Bass Player Chris Pippin. Rob originally from Texas, was attending school and living in the Kearny Mesa area…Chris was playing in a band the Abyss, and was living in Point Loma… Many Names for the band were tossed around…but it was Rob aka Robb/Base that would brainstorm a “SSD” song title from “the kids will have there say” album entitled “Forced Down Your Throat”…we clipped the end and felt it represented a lot of what mtv and other institutions were doing to the kids of the 80’s…Forcing Products and Culture thru a little machine called Capitalism…today it is no less than ironic how the machine has sold the very parts of what we were creating in opposition to it then… This first incarnation would practice for about 4 months and track a 5-song demo intitled “forgot”… It was crude, recorded 10-9-89 at Tony house of sound using an 8 channel 2 track…and of course recorded live…with a Xeroxed cover…and the first time the DOWN SIDE logo was ever printed on something…we were off… full of idealism, love and anger…of note is the liner note on the tape which was sort of a mission statement for us…it read… As the social values in our society becomes more set in stone, the individual is forgotten. When what the individual stands for goes against the ideas of the mass, and is considered a threat to order, be it right or wrong—-they are forced down—- disciplined to maintain “the order” Some conform, some resist, some fall, and they are forgotten… “time to rise from our knees and live on our feet”

Forced Down is one of the bands who played pre-newschool hardcore. For me Forced Down, Amenity, Hard Stance and Against The Wall are bands who started 90's newschool era, but Forced Down are forgotten and unknown. If you wanna know from what music started 90's this band need your attention.

Spawn was also a straight edge hardcore band out of Germany in the mid-90’s. The band released a 7 inch (also released on Crucial Response Records) in 1993, and then a full length album on New Age Records in 1996. They also released a split 7 inch with Feeding the Fire in 1994.

For me this best German newschool hardcore band with really unique European sound which can be described as mix of classic 90's chugga and early 90's metalcore. Heavy riffs, depressive screaming vocal and quick guitar parts makes this band easy recognized.

And their LP is fucking RARE!!! Just saw it once in life and bought it)))
