  1. Pretty cool thread. I guess I'm a fan of punk/alternative/indie kinda music in general. I kinda think nowadays there's quite a few bands that are way too metal to be calling themselves hardcore. I personally can't stand stuff like Job for a Cowboy, The Devil Wears Prada or Elysia... especially Elysia. That stuff is like a big joke to me. I also think lyrics about blood and guts and carnage is just silly. I don't really have anything against metal, I guess stuff like Shadows Fall, In Flames, and Killswitch Engage is alright, can't say I've been listening to killswitch much after they put out end of heartache though.

    So here's a list of some of my favorites.

    Glassjaw - In my opinion this is quite possibly the best band of all time, unfortunately Daryl Palumbo is too busy with Head Automatica for them to be playing much shows, though they are supposed to be putting out a new album soon. I was lucky to see them play a sold out show at the House of Blues in December.

    Shai Hulud - Last I heard they were on tour with Misery Signals, this is an amazing band with intricate musical arrangements and highly inspirational lyrics. They've been around since the mid 90s, and their old screamer is the guitarist from New Found Glory.

    Poison The Well - These guys really used to be one of my favorites, and in a way they still are. The Opposite of December is a classic album and the Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder EP that came out before that was good too. Tear From The Red was alright, but anything that came out after that just sucks in my opinion. Listen to the song 12 23 93 on the myspace page.

    From Autumn To Ashes - Too Bad You're Beautiful was a classic album, I guess the new stuff is decent. Listen to the song Royal Crown vs. Blue Duchess. Some people don't like the sung vocals for this band, but if you can get past that it's some great music!

    Converge - This is a great band! Some good pissed off music, they've also been around for like forever. They have pioneered quite a few elements of the genre.

    Snapcase - This was probably one of the first hardcore bands I ever heard that got me into the genre. Unfortunately they broke up in 2005. They were on Victory Records in the 90s, before the label went to crap.

    Hopesfall - The Satellite Years was definitely a classic album, one of my favorites of all time. Unfortunately they don't have any songs off that album on the myspace. Nowadays they've shifted towards a more mellow alternative kinda sound, kinda like the Deftones and Incubus. I personally enjoy the new album Magnetic North. And for those of you that have heard Underoath, this is the #1 band that they like to rip off.

    The Dillinger Escape Plan - Amazing band, spectacular live show. They've kinda pioneered the math metal/mathcore genre. Highly spastic music and very technical instrumentation. Sometimes they even have these crazy mellow jazz parts. Funny thing is their old drummer left the band to join Coheed and Cambria, though it seems as that didn't stop them in their tracks at the least. I can't wait for the new album to come out on the 13th.

    Misery Signals - I've been a fan of these guys for as long as they've been around, I was a fan of 7 Angels 7 Plagues too. I got to see them play at the now defunct Fireside Bowl here in Chicago opening for All Out War back when they only had the EP out, good times. I personally like the old screamer better.

    Fear Before The March of Flames - I love the new album "Mouth". Great band with a lot of spasticity and dissonance but also melody at times. Did I mention they put on a great live show?

    Refused - Highly influential band from Sweden that was around in the 90s and broke up in 98. I think the guy who was in it is in the International Noise Conspiracy now.

    Death By Stereo - I love these guys, just some great hardcore jams, with a bit of technicality and solos thrown in. They've also had members that have also been in and still are in Throwdown and Eighteen Visions.

    Bane - These guys definitely got a bit of the old school sound going on. Great live show.

    Blood for Blood - This is a very negative, aggressive, and nihilistic sounding band. The vulgarity of the vocalist definitely puts a smile on my face.

    This is Hell - This is another old school kinda sounding band, although they are a newer band. I first heard these guys when I saw them live when they were opening for glassjaw, the stuff isn't bad.

    The Locust - These guys show just how f*cked up hardcore can get. They dress up in locust outfits when they play shows. I saw them when they were playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan and needless to say I was blown away. They were originally known for their insane 30 second songs, but with the new album they seem to be more experimental and actually have 2 minute songs. One of their members owns the record label "Three One G" which has some pretty good grindcore stuff on it, but it's more like artsy grindcore instead of metalhead grindcore. You might wanna check out some of the side projects too such as The Crimson Curse, Some Girls, Holy Molar, Cattle Decapitation (Death Metal, personally I'm not much a fan of the genre), Head Wound City (With members of the Blood Brothers) among others.

    The Blood Brothers - Okay okay, I know what you're gonna say, that you can't stand the high pitched vocals, but I think if you can get past that there's some really creative experimental music to be heard. The aggression has been toned down in their latest album, but I still enjoy it.

    Bad Brains - What hardcore list would be complete without giving credit to some of the originators? The Bad Brains is definitely a top notch band. What set them apart from their peers in the 80s hardcore punk scene such as Minor Threat and Black Flag was that they could actually play their instruments proficiently. Also the band is composed of all African-American members. They also infuse elements of reggae into some of their songs. Did I mention that they also just put out a new album?

    So I take it you're just a big ALK3 fan?

  3. You are a very smart man.

  4. I am a fan of the trio, I am also a fan of bands like The Lawrence Arms and The Smoking Popes, I am also from Chicago.

    I thought I'd add three more bands to the list .

    Every Time I Die - Most people have heard material off of Gutter Phenomenon by these guys, but their older material is a lot more dissonant and hardcore sounding, and not so much of the bluesy riffs, which I still think is cool. Seems like they just put out a new album only like a week ago, good thing I decided to make this list as now I get to take a listen to it.

    The Number Twelve Looks Like You - I'm going out on a bit of a limb for this one, but you gotta admit that some of the crazy guitar parts do sound cool sometimes. I haven't heard the new album, I might have to give it a listen.

    Modern Life Is War - This is a newer band, but these guys definitely know what's up. They kinda got that melodic hardcore sound that had it's peak in the mid 90s - early 2000s, right before myspace got huge.

    Oh yeah and a popular site for this type of music, whether it be Madball, The Acacia Strain, or The Blood Brothers would be Lambgoat // hardcore music and metal music.

  5. Oh and of course, how could I forget?

    HORSE The Band - If you're not familiar with horse the band, let me just tell you that this band is pretty ridiculous. Definitely one of those types of bands that are better live than on record. I think the band itself is kind of a parody of the hardcore genre. Lots of keyboards and weird sounds.

  6. American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost - They started out as American Nightmare and later changed their name to Give Up The Ghost, I'm starting to get tired of describing these bands. Just give it a listen .

    Edit: These guys sadly broke up in 2004.

  7. wow I like what i see on here.. hats off to horse the band, throwdown, norma jean, walls of jericho, and especially bury your dead.. etc etc..

    I'll come out with just a few suggestions that I seriously encourage you fellas to sample.

    The Acacia Strain - Arguably THE heaviest band I have ever come across. Seen them 4-5 times in Pittsburgh/Erie area and they're impressive.

    Winter Solstice - Broken up now but I got to see them before they fell apart. Very impressive, flowing hardcore metal music.

    War of Ages - Right outta my backyard in Erie, and not too big yet. Very impressive everything and one of the best live bands I've ever seen.

    Give them a shot, you won't regret it! Keep the spirit alive fellas, great thread x!

    Acraia Strain is one of my favorite bands, and you are right they are heavy...

    Check out Ghost of Fallen Age Ex Winter Solstice members.

    And War of Ages is a pretty solid band. Facedown records have a very solid line-up.

  9. Shai Hulud - Last I heard they were on tour with Misery Signals, this is an amazing band with intricate musical arrangements and highly inspirational lyrics. They've been around since the mid 90s, and their old screamer is the guitarist from New Found Glory.

    Shai Hulud is a great band.

    Poison The Well - These guys really used to be one of my favorites, and in a way they still are. The Opposite of December is a classic album and the Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder EP that came out before that was good too. Tear From The Red was alright, but anything that came out after that just sucks in my opinion. Listen to the song 12 23 93 on the myspace page.

    I couldn't agree more. PTW was great with their original vocalist. I got a chance to see them when they came to Denver.

    From Autumn To Ashes - Too Bad You're Beautiful was a classic album, I guess the new stuff is decent. Listen to the song Royal Crown vs. Blue Duchess. Some people don't like the sung vocals for this band, but if you can get past that it's some great music!

    FATA first two releases were my favorite. I was picking up everything Tribunal was putting out at the the time, but lost intrest in FATA as the grew in popularity.

    Snapcase - This was probably one of the first hardcore bands I ever heard that got me into the genre. Unfortunately they broke up in 2005. They were on Victory Records in the 90s, before the label went to crap.

    Snapcase was solid, and I agree with Victory records going to crap. I think most of the larger Indie labels are turning to crap. At least with Tooth & Nail and Solid State they keep the heavy bands on SS and the weaker bands on T&N.

    Hopesfall - The Satellite Years was definitely a classic album, one of my favorites of all time. Unfortunately they don't have any songs off that album on the myspace. Nowadays they've shifted towards a more mellow alternative kinda sound, kinda like the Deftones and Incubus. I personally enjoy the new album Magnetic North. And for those of you that have heard Underoath, this is the #1 band that they like to rip off.

    The Satellite Years is the last release I picked up. I was a big Hopesfall fan, but everything Trustkill touches...


    Misery Signals - I've been a fan of these guys for as long as they've been around, I was a fan of 7 Angels 7 Plagues too. I got to see them play at the now defunct Fireside Bowl here in Chicago opening for All Out War back when they only had the EP out, good times. I personally like the old screamer better.

    One of my favorite bands. Well, I have quite few favorites, but these guys are towards the top.


    Blood for Blood - This is a very negative, aggressive, and nihilistic sounding band. The vulgarity of the vocalist definitely puts a smile on my face.

    Spit my last Breath was my favorite release. Gotta see these cats when they came to town...Good show, this is when the had their female bassists who I belive went on to Figure Four???

    This is Hell - This is another old school kinda sounding band, although they are a newer band. I first heard these guys when I saw them live when they were opening for glassjaw, the stuff isn't bad.

    Check out their side project "Soldiers" which I just posted. Same Old School sound...

    I love metalcore. And it was the metal sounds of Earth Crisis, Strife, In Living Sacrafice that turned me on to HXC. I dig The Devil Wears Prada, reminds me of Zao and Norma Jean.

    Job for Cowboy I agree. Do they consider themselves HXC? For the most part I don't consider most bands on Metal Blade Records HXC. Other than the HXC bands they signed to their label: ASID, Evergreen Terrace, ALES, and a handful of other bands, and looks like the signed Shai Hauld:

    Yes the rumors are true SHAI HULUD is back together and has recently signed a deal with Metal Blade Records and are about to hit the road for a string of dates in Europe with PARKWAY DRIVE and REMEMBERING NEVER. Shortly after SHAI HULUD returns to the States they will head out with DEAD TO FALL, TWELVE TRIBES, and label mates PHOENIX MOURNING for the Call No Man Happy Who Is Not Dead Tour sponsored by PureVolume, LambGoat & Metal Maniacs. Once the band is done touring they will spend the winter months writing material for their Metal Blade debut which will be out in the Spring/Summer 2007. More information will be made available as it comes in including tour updates from the guys, updates on the writing process, what studio and producer they plan on going with and studio reports once they start recording.

    "Having been intensely fanatic about the majority of their bands (yes, even THE GOO GOO DOLLS, but more so CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER) for upwards of 20 years, we are honored to be welcomed to their family. Like I told the label, Metal Blade may very well be more responsible for raising me than my mother. Sorry Mom, but you must admit I spent quite a lot of time with SLAYER and VOIVOD in those formative years... We plan on spending this coming winter writing for our Metal Blade debut." Matt Fox Shai Hulud

    "All of us here at Metal Blade are absolutely thrilled to be working with a band that is as influential as SHAI HULUD and cant wait to get started working their MB debut. We definitely expect to see great things from Matt Fox and Co. and will make sure we do everything in our power to help them along the way. 2007 is going to be one hell of a year for Metal Blade and Im grateful that SHAI HULUD will be a part of that." Metal Blade

    "I remember seeing SHAI HULUD at Furnace Fest 2002 and they were the best band there! They've influenced so many of the bands that are up and coming right now, including AS I LAY DYING. When Matt first sent me the new demos, I was honored to give my recommendation to Metal Blade and Im happy to see they are now part of the MB family." Tim Lambesis of AS I LAY DYING

    "SHAI HULUD were one of the pioneers of melodic hardcore. When I say melodic, I mean crushing yet melodic music, with emotionally driven heavy vocals that will tear your soul open. Without these guys metal/hardcore would not sound the way it does today. They were and still are a musical influence for me." Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH

    Things are going pretty good, but yeah, these next 8 weeks are gonna be pretty rough. Especially the last 3 or 4.

    Actually, since you told me about August Burns Red, that's the main thing I've been listening to during my workouts with the addition of the new ETID cd. Messengers and Thrill Seeker are definitely good for getting me motivated, no doubt.

    Right bro. If you need a kick in the ass, you know where to find me

  15. Looks like the Colorado scene is picking up. I am going to half to check out some local bands

  16. August Burns Red



    ABR hooked me with "Looks Fragile After All" (tempting to pick up the re-release w/DVD), and solidified them on my all time list with "Thrill Seekers", and keeps on destroying with "Messengers"; some solid Metalcore...

    MySpace
    PureVolume

    August Burns Red Bio:Messengers, the second record to drop from the minds and hands of Lancaster, PA fivesome August Burns Red is more than just a collection of 11 raging metal songs that ravage the ears of their listeners with technical skill and immense passion. The record is, in fact, not only a musical collaboration, but also a lyrical one, where every member of the band contributed to the lyrical content with their own thoughts, ideas and messages. Hence the record’s intriguing title.

    “We all contributed to the lyrics on this one whereas on Thrill Seeker our singer did all the writing,” Brubaker explains. “We all offered different ideas. Each of us wrote a set of lyrics and we’d pick a song we thought they’d fit with. It was a collaboration rather than one person.”

    August Burns Red, who initially formed in March of 2003, began this writing process almost immediately after finishing their shattering debut, Thrill Seeker, at the end of 2005, collecting ideas to follow up that disc with something even bigger. The five members of August Burns Red spent almost the entire year and half they were touring in support of Thrill Seeker penning the songs that landed on Messengers, eventually entering the studio in February 2007 in Nashville with Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Himsa, Dark Tranquility, Extol), with whom the fivesome co-produced the album. The group spent the month refining the tracks into the aggressive, pounding songs you hear on the finished album.

    “I think we wanted to continue with what our style is- stay in our niche- but expand upon it,” Brubaker says of the album. “It’s two years after our last record so we’re obviously going to be better at our instruments and more mature as songwriters. So to me it’s a natural progression from our album before.”

    The album ranges from the heavily throbbing, double-bass-driven “Composure” to the crushing “An American Dream,” a song that drags the listener along by Luhrs’ callous screams and the band’s penchant for driving, metallic guitar riffs and intricate drumwork. The complexity of August Burns Red’s songwriting is apparent throughout, a clear indication of a band with rabid ambition and a burgeoning talent for crafting tight, compelling songs. Longtime fans fear not, though; Messengers is still the product of the same intense band who continue to blow the minds of everyone lucky enough to witness their memorable live show.

    “I think it sounds like us,” Brubaker notes of Messengers. “But it’s more mature and musicianship-wise it’s way better. It’s much more technical. I think it really shows how far we’ve come.”

    Wiki:August Burns Red are a Christian Metalcore group from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The band formed in March of 2003 and quickly started playing shows around Lancaster. In 2004, the band was signed to CI Records and released an EP called Looks Fragile After All. After about another year of playing shows, the band was signed to Solid State Records in 2005 and released Thrill Seeker on November 8th of that year. Having completed recording their latest album, "Messengers", they are currently on their first headlining tour. Messengers was released on June 19, 2007. The members are well known in the metal world for wearing flip-flops and shirts that aren't black while they play.

    August Burns Red has toured with bands such as Cassius, Too Pure To Die, The Chariot, Ringworm, Demiricous, Ligeia, Terror, Bury Your Dead, Scars of Tomorrow, Sinai Beach, Chasing Victory, Nodes of Ranvier, The Showdown, Project 86, Haste the Day, Between the Buried and Me, Wilderness, Chiodos, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, As I Lay Dying, Zao, Demon Hunter, Spoken, Destroy the Runner, Inhale Exhale, Twelve Gauge Valentine, Evergreen Terrace and Becoming the Archetype.

  19. Oh Sleeper



    Another solid Metalcore band, which must be Christian since they signed to Solid State Records

    MySpace
    PureVolume

    Oh, Sleeper featuring ex-members of Terminal (Tooth & Nail) and Between the Buried & Me (Victory Records) Oh, Sleeper is already blazing a trail of their own.

    Oddly enough, failure is the binding fabric that held the members of recently formed Oh, Sleeper together and kept them from slowly embedding themselves further in defeat. "Everyone in this project refused to continue on with our lives until weve made the difference that we are supposed to make in music." says drummer Ryan Conley. Scattered in different corners of the country, something bigger brought these guys together in April of 2006. With the majority of the members coming from short-lived rock outfit Terminal (Tooth & Nail Records), it's no surprise that the band signed a deal with Solid State Records in the summer of '07. Oh, Sleeper brings a full plate of heavy and dark guitars with thought out lyrics that refuse to shy away from truth. Music is a weapon and they plan to fully utilize this divine appointment for nothing other than a purpose greater than themselves. Starr explains: "At the end of the day, a song is nothing more than a bunch of notes and chords strategically thrown together. Dont get me wrong, music is awesome but I feel there is something more to this life than writing a hit song and selling records. Anyone can learn how to play an instrument, but what good is it if you only use that talent for self gratification?" Oh, Sleeper just finished recording their debut full-length for Solid State Records with Andreas Magnusson (Scarlet, The Agony Scene, Spitfire). It will be available for you to purchase on October 23, 2007. To see 5 weeks worth of studio footage, check out the blogs on our Myspace. Stay tuned.


    Wiki:Oh, Sleeper is a metalcore band from Ft. Worth, Texas signed to Solid State Records.

    History:Oh, Sleeper formed in April of 2006 after two former members of short-lived rock band Terminal got together with former Between the Buried and Me guitarist Shane Blay and former Terminal bassist Lucas Starr (who was at the time with As Cities Burn). Eventually they found a vocalist in Micah Kinard and began practicing and touring throughout the rest of 2006 into early 2007. The band released one independent EP during this time titled The Armored March. The band was discovered and quickly signed with Solid State Records in the Summer of 2007. Since then, the band has been touring and has recently recorded their debut album When I Am God which will be released on October 23, 2007. The band has released two new songs on their MySpace entitled "I Will Welcome The Reaping" and "Charlatan's Host"

    * Micah Kinard - Vocals
    * Shane Blay - Guitar/Vocals (Between The Buried and Me, Evelynn)

  21. A Well Thought Tragedy




    MySpace
    PureVolume

    What can I say. I love my Metalcore, and AWTT is a solid band that is melodic and has solid breakdowns. And this is one band I will make sure I pick up the actual CD for my collection.

    I know real HXC is about teh vinyl but, I gotz no record player...

    Funny that a description of the band is on Urban Dictionary
    In what is becoming a monotonous scene of breakdown anthems, AWTT bring their hearts to the table over and over again. Every-time blowing minds more than the time before. AWTTs love and appreciation for metal is reflected in their killer riffs and melodic choruses. After that complete brutality takes over. Having been compared to bands such Dead to Fall, As I Lay Dying, I Killed The Prom Queen, and other uprising bands in the metal-core scene, A Well Thought Tragedy is guaranteed to reel you in like a blood thirsty barracuda. Unlike a lot of metal-core bands out today, these fellers break the mold introducing head bopping riffs that even the inexperienced of this style can appreciate. AWTT brings elements of every style from old/new school hardcore, big hair/groove metal, to just plain out brutal...with a hint of punk rock here and there. Be prepared for a new sound in this "every band sounds the same" era. Seriously, you won't be disappointed.



    Dying For What We Love
    Track Listing:
    1. Exhale
    2. Failure Was Designed To Destroy
    3. Further Down The Spiral We Come Crashing
    4. Murder With Your Eyes
    5. A Quiet Separation





  22. Horse The Band is pretty badass.

    Killswitch Engage.

    HeavyHeavyLowLow - Fairly decent...

    The Devil Wears Prada - They have a few killer tracks.

    Old Underoath is greatness- Acts of Depression and Cries of the past are the best CD's by far. The new screamer has a better voice unfortunately IMO. Others like the old singer.

    Old Atreyu is good too. The new CD is pure balls though

  23. If anybody here has a high appreciation for progressive metal and hardcore you absolutely have to pick up the new BTBAM album Colors. It is without a doubt one of the most flowing, rythmic, well orchestrated example of brutal yet subtle musical compilations I've ever come across in this genre.. a truly impressive piece of work and I highly recommend you give it a shot!!! (and no I don't work for Victory ) Do it... hey, DO IT.

  29. I wasn't going to list these guys, but The Bled have their new album on their MySpace page.

    Wiki:The Bled is a post-hardcore band from Tucson, Arizona. The band members united over their love of music and their desire to get out of Tucson. They formed in 2001 and soon established a name for themselves in their home town, playing many shows and often to sold out audiences. Eventually they signed to Fiddler Records and released one album through them - Pass The Flask. The band toured extensively in support of this album. However, before recording started for their second album, original bass player, Mike Celi, left the band. He was replaced by Darren Simoes. The band is currently signed to Vagrant Records and through them, released their second album, Found In The Flood in 2005. They have toured alongside such bands as Slipknot, Alexisonfire, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Thrice, Midtown, The Used, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, Senses Fail, and AFI. The Bled's very first headlining tour was shared with Protest the Hero of Canada. They will soon embark on the Projekt Revolution tour, along with My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, HIM, and others.


    INFO:Silent Treatment is the third studio album from Tucson, AZ's The Bled. This time the band moved up to Baltimore, MD to work with producer extraordinaire Brian McTernan (Thrice, Circa Survive, From Autumn To Ashes). This record is more of a retreat back to their earlier recordings, which featured stripped-down, raw energy and massive rif***e. Despite that, the band also found ways to use some of their experimental edge to create some of the most unique songs found in heavy music today.

    TRACK LISTING:
    1. Shadetree Mechanics
    2. You Should Be Ashamed Of Myself
    3. Threes Away
    4. Asleep On The Front Lines
    5. Platonic Sleepover Massacre
    6. Starving Artiste
    7. The Silver Lining
    8. Some Just Vanish
    9. Breathing Room Barricades
    10. Beheaded My Way
    11. My Bitter Half

  30. The Bled are very good live and, once again, I didn't even know about this album coming out.
