8 new colombian hardcore punk releases

 Note: Your idols will eventually fall...

Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back with another quick entry. This time I'll feature you some of the most recent hardcore punk releases this year thus far. There aren't that much, though. I still don't have much time either but I also hope you will like this entry. If you follow thoroughly the blog as I imagine, you must already know half of the content of this humble entry. Yup. Lastly, I'll owe you the physical editions but I'll try to get them, digitize them, and upload them as soon as possible. With all that written, let's begin!

1) Amor y Rabia / Renkore split 


You know, "Good things take time" and this interesting split EP is no exception. Indeed, this took about 4 or 5 years in the making for seeing the light.  Firstly, our chaton.ne.s! of Amor y Rabia, whose signature "emo d-beat" style is almost intact and shines in the dark for the last time ever. Yes, this is their goodbye (something that most of their members wanted for good ha! :/). The songs are a little bit longer than previous works but still manage the characteristic gruff and screamed vocal duet and very abstract lyrics content they were known for. As a curious fact, the track named "Seguimos caminando junto a los inmortales" has a piano excerpt of Hope, one song originally performed by Yani (R.I.P.), a venezuelan musician that had a one-man post-punk project. Secondly, we have our also chaton.ne.s! of Renkore contributing two brand new tracks with their signature crustcore style with female and male vocal duet screaming politically-charged lyrics, which particularly deal with androgyny and broken dreams. Nice. Finally, I'm still waiting for my physical copy but, in the meantime, click here and here for listening to each side of the "compartido". I think you're gonna love it as much as I do. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

2) A Sangre Fría - Demo '19

https://asangrefriapxv.bandcamp.com/album/todo-o-nada-demo-19

A Sangre Fría is a recently formed group featuring ex-members of the now extinct local hardcore Terco and Beat The Boss, among others. This is their first demo and I really like the job done. Indeed, they play powerviolence in the same vein as Sex Prisoner and Water Torture. Pure goddamn jockviolence style, baby. Yeah. The lyrics are politically-charged and deal with some aspects of the apparently never ending inner conflict here in Colombia, notably the rise of extreme right-wing paramilitar groups. Oh, and I almost forgot. There's also a cover of Jockviolence by Weekend Nachos. Pretty convenient, right? Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. You'll also find some alternate outtakes and raw recordings of the demo as well. Can't wait for their full-length album. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 


3) Exilio - self-titled EP

https://exilio.bandcamp.com/album/self-titled?fbclid=IwAR2IgezH_0xgYCILBqPdP3nCGdr0Qjy2LOVq-4ZzCHIVWZiMKmIssLOxRpI

Yes, it's final-fuckin'-ly here. The highly anticipated debut album from our venezuelan friends, now based here in Bogotá D.C., sees the light. The name means "exile" in spanish and makes reference to how the band members feel about leaving behind their native country for better life opportunities. So, their sound is a mix of crust and d-beat with female vocals and short and straight-to-the-point musical execution, really reminiscent of swedish classics like Totalitär and Disfear, but with the visceral and forceful latinx touch. The lyrics, as you may already have guessed, are politically-charged dealing with corruption, violence, immigration issues, etc. Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Highly recommended. Enjoy!          

4) Falso Dios - Dios Digital

https://falsodios.bandcamp.com/releases

This is a one-man grindcore band from one member of ZEN//AKU (I'm not sure which one is), a grindcore band from Cali. What can I write about this record? It's fantastic. Indeed, the music is short, fast and loud. It's not that different to ZEN//AKU's style (somewhere between Magrudergrind and Hatred Surge) but there are some songs with some cybergrind affinities in the same vein as Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Iamerror. Pretty dope. Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

5) Incendiariat - Maher Shalal Hash Baz 

https://incendiariat.bandcamp.com/

Maher-shalal-hash-baz ("Hurry the spoils" or "He has made haste to the plunder" in hebrew) is the second prophetic-child name after the birth of Immanuel meaning the impending plunder of Samaria and Damascus by the king of Assyria, Tiglath-Pileser III (734-732 BCE). With this weird biblical reference, Incendiariat says goodbye to this fucked up world with, probably, their best material ever to date. Indeed, their unique screamo-influenced style gets more elements of post-metal, ambient and drone than before. The lyrics are still abstract and incomprehensible as always with some political content. Nice. Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

6) Muro - Live at Antípoda Bar - Festival Asfixia II (07/12/2019), Bogotá D.C. 

https://fuerzaingobernablediscos.bandcamp.com/album/muro-en-vivo-festival-asfixia-ii-ant-poda-bogot-cs

Muro, regarded by many as the best modern hardcore band in the world nowadays, is back with some preview of their upcoming 2nd LP, which is expected to be released before the year ends. This is a live performance in Asfixia II festival, which was held last month at Antípoda Bar here in Bogotá and featured different hardcore and punk bands from the country and 2 international guests: Armamento Fatal (US) and Youth Avoiders (France). So, the quality sound of the record is outstanding and perfectly retains Muro's own signature "Ataque Hardcore Punk" style (this time around more influenced by 80s italian hardcore), which is getting more and more intense and ferocious with every new release. I cannnot wait for the full-length album. Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

7) The Tryout - Todos Odian  EP

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rpS6Irwaco&list=PLnYoJ6rmVxqn_bfCf4ghVi75mFqIrXXwk&index=1

Ok, les chaton.ne.s! I gotta be honest with you. This band hasn't been my cup of tea at all but, with the release of this impressive EP, I totally have changed my mind. Indeed, the musical style reminded me of great dutch hardcore bands like No Turning Back and All For Nothing with more outspoken, defying and politically-charged lyrics. This new shift really motivated me to include them here in the blog. There are also some songs featuring a female vocalist, who is the same womyn that participated to Coyote's Nemesis Latrans CD (one of our best picks of last year). Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to the official Towers of Acre's YouTube channel where you can listen to this record. I could consider it as a potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Well done. Highly recommended. Enjoy!   

8) Valium - Animales

https://valiumibahell.bandcamp.com/album/animales

We finally conclude this entry with the recent work from our chaton.ne.s! of Valium from Ibagué AKA Ibahell. Since their contributed tracks to their split with Trimegisto from Ecuador (remember one of our best picks of last year), Valium is incorporating more elements of metal punk into their crossover thrash/crust fusion. This record is no exception to the rule, however. The lyrics are still politically-charged with more references to veganism and animal liberation and the inner conflict here in Colombia as well as other topics such as misery, corruption, consumerism, and the downfall of humanity led by technology, among others. The contributed tracks to the aforementioned split are also included in the record as bonus tracks. Finally, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Highly recommended. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!

Some of your e-mail requests


 Note: Mrs. Doubtfire is our new chef editor.

Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back with another short yet wholesome entry. These are some of your e-mail requests from June and July that I couldn't review because I'm busy as fuck lately. Please forgive this incident but I read everything you send to my inbox. Finally, don't forget to send your review submissions (next to the "Disclaimer" section of the blog, you'll see how to do it). With all that written, let's begin. 

1) RAM ONES 

https://realramones.bandcamp.com/releases

This is a band from Cleveland, OH and their style really caught me by surprise. Indeed, for a strange reason, I do not usually feature thrashcore AKA "fastcore" acts in the vein of What Happens Next?m Scholastic Deth (USA), LxExAxRxNx (Italy) and Crippled Fox (Hungary), for naming a few. I should do something about it soon...Anyway, RAM ONES have some of the spirit of the aforementioned acts displaying a pretty fun and fresh style with short and fast songs albeit some elements of modern hardcore are included too. I really loved the Hoobastank reference ha ha. Such pitiful memories. Ha! Finally, click on the image above and give it a try. Highly recommended. Enjoy!  

2) Follow Focus #2 fanzine

http://www.abstractcity.org/new-products/rf9ier5eaqtverlfw1f0bpzdeps1vu



The individual behind this project, Vincent Comparetto (a photographer and visual artist from Denver, CO), gladly sent me an e-mail for reviewing the second issue of Follow Focus, his own fanzine. So, this issue is a 54 full color book professionally printed, perfect bound with a hand screen printed cover on a beautiful hot pink stock, featuring an outstanding photographic register of how things have evolved in 20 years within the underground musical scene in Denver (I'll feature in here some photos as a preview).

I really liked the focus since many womyn, non-binary and queer individuals are shown as well as different local warehouses and social centers where DIY and non-profit activities are held, for example, Acoma House, Titwrench, House Ov Where and Inca House, for naming a few. There are even some international fests included such as Fluff Fest (Czech Republic). And, of course, there are some writings of the author and some of his friends and collaborators about DIY spaces and more. As many other similar works, the autor wants "to showcase the necessity for sustainable creative spaces within every city that cater to performing artists from all walks of life", which can apply anywhere in the world.

Last but not least, click on the first image above where you can get redirected to Comparetto's official website named Abstract City and order a physical copy. Totally worth it. I'll also leave you below some information and links of the featured bands (some of them aren't hardcore punk-oriented, though), at least the ones I could find since many of them are disbanded and their works are really, really tough to find. I'd like to see more projects like this one in the near future. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Sin Desires Marie 


I must admit that I never ever heard of this band before. I also got to know that in their local city have a huge fandom base and always want them to perform always. Always. But, you know, life goes on and you gotta move on...So, their sound reminded me of the alternative rock-driven era of different posthardcore bands in the 90s such as Fugazi, Unwound and Jawbox. Also, they shared stage at some point with hardcore punk acts like Los Crudos and indie emo bands like Braid and The Get Up Kids. Finally, during their short lifespan, they only released one self-titled (199x) and one split with Del Cielo (Ed Walters Records, 2002). Sadly, I tried to get some of their material but I couldn't find anything. But, I'll leave you below their full set in their reunion show (and last show ever) at Titwrench, in Denver, 2011 (Thanks to the YouTube user Pork Roll for the footage). If you have some .mp3 files of their material (at least their official releases), please send them to me via e-mail. I'd be thankful. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Mr. Pacman


Mr. Pacman is a experimental musical project from Denver, which describes themselves as "8-bit hero gangsta rock". As far as I know, they only have self-released one CD named Star Hustler in 2003, whose sound draws influences from chiptune (You know, the electronica subgenre focused on 8-bit video game consoles sound, in their case, a Commodore 64), synth-pop and hard rock. I also had difficulties trying to get their CD but you can go to John Dhale's YouTube channel where you can find some of their tracks. Also, you can look for some of their weird yet satisfying live performances on the platform.This band really rocks. Highly recommended. Enjoy!  

ANIMAL / object 

https://bangsnap.bandcamp.com/album/animal-object

I'm not really sure when this band did start but, judging by some of the photos featured in the zine, they've been in the game since long time ago. I'm not sure if they're still together as a band either. Either way, I really liked their musical style. Indeed, their sound can be labeled as avant-garde or experimental using different instruments such as a chinese sanxian, harmonicas, violins, resonators, ukuleles and even hand-made PVC instruments such as clarinets and japanese hotchikus for creating an ambient and ethereal instrumental-only sensations. There are some sporadic spoken and whispered words as well. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to BangSnap records (from Denver) where you can listen to ANIMAL / object's self-titled (2013). I really recommend the experience. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

GOON

https://lumpofmeat.bandcamp.com/

(Do not confuse it with the LA-based band of the same name) GOON is a hardcore punk band born in 2015 and still active today. They only have released so far one demo (2015), tour tape (2016), one contributed track to Local Anesthetic compilation (Heavy Dose, 2016) and one promo tape for their upcoming first full-length album (2019). Their sound is short, fast and frantic with different unpredictible overlaps and tempo changes, sometimes with slower and weird interludes. They reminded me of bands like Liquids, Dawn of Humans and the early years of Lumpy and the Dumpers. Oh, and I forgot to mention that their live performances are also strange as fuck. Look for them on YouTube. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to their work prior to 2019. I can't wait for the release of their LP. Highly recommended. Enjoy!       

Product Lust 

https://productlust.bandcamp.com/

Product Lust is a female-fronted hardcore punk band from Denver that has released so far self-titled cassette EP (Product Lust-self-released, 2016) and Year Of The Rat tape (Convulse Records, 2018). Their sound mixes different styles of both american and british hardcore punk with some surf rock, post-punk, late-NYHC mix kinda "feel" in some guitar chords and arrangements but the band's musical execution is short, fast and loud without losing the grip in general terms. And, yes. Slower breakdowns overlaps in some parts are included too. There are even some songs where their vocalist makes a fantastic game of interchanging spoken words with gruff gutturals. Nice. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to their current works. I hope to see more releases coming from this band in the near future. FOF Krimewatch, Nosebleed and Firewalker (US). Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

Sin Cave  

https://sincave.bandcamp.com/
  
Sin Cave is an all-female hardcore punk band active since 2016. They have released so far one demo (2016) and one self-released EP (2017). We already featured them because they contributed some tracks to Fresh! Vol.1 compilation (You can refresh your memory by clicking here). Regarding their sound, Sin Cave plays short, fast and loud hardcore punk in the same vein as latinx/chicanx bands in the U.S. such as Fronterrorismo, Los Crudos and Sin Orden, for naming a few. There are also some cues from early NYHC acts such as Cro-Mags, Breakdown and Agnostic Front with heavy metallic guitar riffs and slower breakdowns in some crucial parts of some songs. Cool. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to their current works. I hope to see more releases coming from this band in the near future as well. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

3) Saka Čost catalog

https://sakacost.bandcamp.com/

This small and emerging record label from Avignon, France gladly sent me an e-mail featuring some of the artists' material they have released so far. Even though I recognize most of the featured musical outfits really impressed me, I'll only feature two of them because we've got a lot of work to do right now. If you want to keep updated with this project, you can click on the image above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp account. With all that said, let's see what are the projects I picked up.

Wormsand 

https://sakacost.bandcamp.com/album/wormsand

This is the first release from this interesting stoner rock/sludge band from Menton, a southern town in France. The musical style is just insane. Indeed, they reminded me of Electric Wizard, Windhand and Monolord with slow yet overwhelming reverb tunes and psychedelic riffs that simply will blow your mind.  When I was living in France sometime ago, I didn't get to know these kind of bands. I'll try to feature more stoner rock/sludge-related musical outfits in the near future. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

Satan / Sordide split

https://sakacost.bandcamp.com/album/split-satan-sordide

https://sakacost.bandcamp.com/album/split-satan-sordide-2

It's been awhile since I get to know anything new coming from our friends of Satan, a Grenoble-based band. They describe their style themselves as "Possessed Punk", drawing influences from black metal, crust, sludge and grindcore. They also put some experimental and ambient twist. I must admit that their two contributed tracks are insane as fuck and, probably, their most aggressive and violent material thus far. Nice. Last but not least, Sordide is also a french black metal band from Rouen and their style is pretty raw, aggressive and obscure as fuck. I think they also have some slight hardcore influences because they reminded me somewhat of other local blackened monsters such as Celeste (Lyon) and Regarde Les Hommes Tomber (Nantes). Finally, click on the images above for getting redirected to their official bandcamp where you can listen to each part of this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

4) Tiffo - Terra De Ninguém 

https://tiffocrust.bandcamp.com/album/terra-de-ningu-m-2

Once again, the mastermind behind this blackened crust one-man project from Brazil show us his most recent work Terra de Ninguém ("No Man's Land" in portuguese). This record is "a cry to for unity and clash against racist tyranny, against immigration policies, indigenous genocide, Bolsonaro and Trump governments, and against any kind of prejudice, homophobia, misogyny, transphobia. It is a solidarity with anarchists of the world, people who save refugees and solidarity with natives, blacks, latinxs, chineses, russians, palestinians, and any people who suffer from their leaders, and religious or political prejudices. Long life for Exarchia, Rouvikonas and Notara 26". It also includes a cover of Ciranda Das Chibatas, originally performed by Praia De Vomito (a brazilian grindcore band). Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Fuck NSBM. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

5) Overo - self-titled EP 

https://overo.bandcamp.com/album/overo

This is the first EP of this Houston-based screamo/post-hardcore band. This work was co-released through strictly no capital letters (UK), LilacSky (Norway), Pundonor Records (Spain), Count Your Lucky Stars and Middle-Man Records (US). Regarding the sound, they play melodic yet forceful music with both female clean vocals and male screamed vocals. They reminded me a lot of mid/late-00s south american bands such as Leidan (Chile) and La Última Canción del Mundo (Argentina). Ah, such good memories...Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

6) Peasant - Unrest Eternal 

https://peasant.bandcamp.com/album/unrest-eternal
 
This is the most recent work from this metalcore from South Africa. Yup, you read right. I do not usually receive review submissions from that country. In fact, I think it's the first time. So, Peasant plays metalcore in the same vein as The Black Dahlia Murder, As I Lay Dying and Poison The Well (later recordings) mixed with all the chugga chugga-esque breakdown formula, popularized since the 90s. I do not post either this kind of bands here in the blog but well, there are some exceptions. Sometimes. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. They will also make an european tour this month so, check'em out if you can. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

7) Zegema Beach Records 

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/

Our friends of this superb canadian record label monthly send us some of their newest inclusions of their impressive catalog. June was no exception but I'll also add some of their recent entries in July that truly deserve a place here in the blog. So, with all that written, let's begin. 

Blue Noise - Everyone Goes Away Eventually tape 

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/everyone-goes-away-eventually

This is the first LP of this one-man band. I think I listened to this band long time ago but didn't pay too much attention to. So, the mastermind behind this has also been in other groups such as Youth Novel, Vampires, Déraciné and Goodthink, for naming a few. Regarding the sound, it's a good mix of screamo, post-hardcore and even some traces of post-metal for creating an unique and personal chaotic ambiance. If you dig bands like Nic, An Autumn of Crippled Children (best name ever) and even Deafheaven, this is definitely for you. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy!   

Shizune / Lytic split

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/shizune-lytic-split
  
An impressive split released early this year. On one hand, we have Shizune from Italy, whose style is reminiscent of mid/late-00s european screamo outfits like Amanda Woodward (France), La Quiete and Raein (Italy) with melodic yet overwhelming musical execution. I guess it was about time to feature them here in the blog, right? On the other hand, we have Lytic, a recently formed musical group from the US featuring ex-members of Saetia and Off Minor, both godfathers of the screamo subgenre in the 00s. So, yeah, we have in this split a clash of different styles of screamo that have made history on their own. Good memories, too. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Yarostan / Aleska split 

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/yarostan-aleska-split-2xlp

Another impressive screamo time machine that teleport us to the belle époque of the style in France 15 years ago. Indeed, both Yarostan (Marseille, France) and Aleska (Metz) take the best elements of the mid/late-'00s french screamo style in the same vein as Daïtro, Sed Non Satiata and Gantz with some elements of chaotic yet melodic modern screamo outfits. This is the debut of Yarostan and what a pretty way to get you to know to the world. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

Jazzbrunch - self-titled

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/jazzbrunch

Ok, here's the deal. I've been seeing lately in different websites featuring the debut album of this band and everyone seems to be crazy about them. But madly. Is it even that great? OF COURSE, IT IS. Holy fuck. This is goddamn great. So, yeah, this is an alternate project of different members of great swedish bands such Vi Som Älskade Varandra Så Mycket and Totem Skin. Their style is a mix of screamo, crust and post-metal creating something that should receive the humble label of epicness. What a good way to start this new project off, right?. Melody, chaos, complex yet enjoyable musical structure  and a top-notch instrumentation (Piano included). What else could you ask for? This is definitely a candidate for our best picks of this year (Even record of the year). Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this masterpiece. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

Joliette - La Luz Devora  

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/luz-devora

This is another record everyone is talking about. The more recent work of this mexican post-hardcore outfit never ceases to impress us. Indeed, La Luz Devora is probably their more mature and well-produced record to date. Their musical style mixes different hardcore punk and extreme metal subgenres, including screamo, sludge and even post-black metal, for creating an unique and personal musical style with an obscure, visceral and noisy as fuck execution. The songs from El Alphabiotista single (Remember this was one of our best picks of last year) were included too. A potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy! 

Drei Affen - Seguimos Ciegxs  

https://zegemabeachrecords.bandcamp.com/album/seguimos-ciegxs

Holy fuck. This is another awesome record from this powerhouse from Torrelavega, Spain. For this second LP, also co-released by Pifia Records, Through Love Records and Left Hand Label (Germany), the signature neocrust/emoviolence sound of this band goes to the next level of awesomeness with more refined and mature musical execution. Yeah, the songs are approximately 3 minutes long but are pure fucking chaos from the beginning to the end. This is the perfect soundtrack for driving your car at 60mph and crashing it into the walls of either your local church or the parliament. The lyrics are pretty touching and emotive than ever. Nice. Another potential candidate for our best picks of this year. Finally, click on the image above for getting redirected to the official bandcamp where you can listen to this record. Highly recommended. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!

The Emo Apocalypse, The Emo Armageddon and The Emo Annihilation compilations

 Note: Luv ya, mum

Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back with a short yet wholesome entry. I know I've been out of the game lately but the (un)real world demands me lots of time. Lots. Nonetheless, I'm still preparing some pretty interesting entries that will surely please you. Be patient. Also, I'm sorry if I still haven't posted some of your email requests in the last month but, don't worry, they will be posted during the week. Yup, I'm gonna try.

Now, do you remember I mentioned you these compilations in the previous entry? Well, it was about time to be featured here in the blog. They were originally released by React With Protest (Germany) back in 2005 (Armageddon), 2006 (Apocalypse) and 2008 (Annihilation) featuring different screamo and emoviolence bands around the world, for example, Louise Cyphre (Germany), Shikari (Netherlands), La Quiete (Italy), Daïtro (France), Suis La Lune (Sweden), Comadre (USA), Utarid (Malaysia), Arse Moreira (Mexico), among others, now all-time classics for the subgenres.

Regarding the sound, all the featured tracks are short, fast and loud as fuck, less than 30 seconds long (with one or two one minute long exceptions, however). This means that if we gather all the three records, we complete 66 songs in less than 40 minutes approximately. Nice. Note that most of the featured tracks were previously unreleased and, therefore, exclusive for these collections at their time. Even many years have passed and some "complete discographies" do not include them. Finally, you'll also note that some of the featured artists didn't tend to perform as an emoviolence act, but made an exception for these collections. 

Last but not least, click on the images below for downloading them. These records necessarily need a reissue or even a bootleg ha ha. But seriously listen to them. In fact, the first time I listened to these comps many years ago, I was completely shocked because I couldn't believe emo-related bands could do such thing. And, since then, I'm a huge fan of the whole emoviolence trend. You could maybe appreciate more these kind of bands after listening to this. Just maybe. Anyway, see you next time. Kisses and hugs!
