    Alcina




    Alcina formed at the close 2005, in Nashville, TN. With their catchy metalcore sound similar to Haste The Day, August Burns Red, and The Showdown, they immediately began building a solid hometown fan base, drawing hundreds of kids to many shows. By the summer of 2006 they self-produced an EP and began touring in the southeast, eastcoast, and midwest. After playing generator stages at Cornerstone Festival, they started receiving label attention. Just several months later they announced their signing to Holdfast Records in front of 400+ screaming fans in Nashville. Their 8-track EP was recorded in November 2006 at NME Studios in Nashville, TN. In January, Alcina’s hometown cd release show brought a soldout audiance of over 700 kids, one of the largest local hardcore shows RCKTWN Music Venue has ever had.

    Ya, so much for that GlassJaw tour that was supposed to go down this summer. Although there have constantly been rumors like that floating around since the breakup.

    My lucky-ass buddy just drove to LA and saw them on Oct. 28th. I wanted to go so bad, but I couldn't plan it because I thought I was going to be in contest prep when he told me about it.

    He did bring me back a gj shirt, though.

    Crohn's is a helluva disease.
    I bet that show was sick. I have an old GJ shirt I got back when Worship& Tribute was released. The "Guns don't Kill People, GJ kills People" Shirt. Its like the one that huge guy in Happy Gilmore wears.

    Yeah I've seen that one.

    And as for the Crohn's, I had tickets for the glassJaw show in AZ last time they were supposed to be here, but Daryl got another flare up and they canceled. Needless to say, I was not very happy.

    Crohn's keeps me from doing many of the things I want to do. I am sure Daryl wanted to be there but the pain of having Crohn's is something that may only be understood by living with it yourself.
    Oh yeah, I completely understand. Sorry to hear you've got to live with it too. I was just bummed cuz it was glassJaw. I've seen Daryl with Head Automatica probably 4 or 5 times though.

    Apparently gj played all this new **** at the LA show a few weeks ago.

    I saw glassjaw live and sold out at the house of blues in december, man it was nothing short of witnessing a moment of rock'n'roll history, any legendary singers there has been, whether it be van morrison or freddie mercury, I think Daryl is god enough to be able to be among them.

    I've seen them before at the 2003 warped tour and waaay back at like 2001 or 2002 when EYEWTKAS was what they had out and they were playing a small venue.

    Man I miss the days when you could see such a killer band in front of such a small audience, and they're playing right in front of your face.

    Sh!t man I've seen several bands "up close" live at small venues. There is this place where I'm from called the "Rainbow Ballroom" and this thing is just a small indoor...ballroom. I've seen Lamb of God, Trivium, Killswitch Engage, Bury Your Dead, All that Remains, Gojira, Machinehead, Deftones, and others. Being in such a confined area like that makes the music sound so much better and much more intense. I've been to outdoor concerts and it just doesn't sound the same. By the way, if you have never seen Lamb of God live, do so. Absolutely amazing. BYD was awesome too. Too bad Mat Bruso left.

    The place I went to, that's shut-down now, is called the Fireside Bowl. Get this, this was not a ballroom... but a dive bowling alley with barely an excuse for a stage, and of course it did have the heavily abused tile ceiling.

    Another place, which is still up and running but has gone to **** with the scenester homos is the Arlington Heights Knights of Columbus Hall. This place is a hall for the Knights of Columbus church organization, but they let promoters book shows there, local and touring. I've seen plenty of great bands there that have gone on to be huge. This is gonna sound funny to you guys but they actually show the first Fall Out Boy video there and I was there for it hah. I also remember seeing Rise Against there good times. I don't really go here anymore ever though, cause it is located in the suburbs, and man do I not like those kids! Last place I wanna be is somewhere with a bunch of 13 year old gothic looking sluts running around the place.

    If you happen to live in the Chicago area I suggest you check out mP productions presents..


    Also here's a good local band from around here:

    Has The Red Chord been mentioned (sorry if it has)? Awesome hardcore/metal band. Seriously though, check them out if you haven't already. I'd say they're like a much harder version of Norma Jean and The Chariot.

    I've never actually listened to them much(although I think I saw them live one time a while ago), but I'm a very big fan of Norma Jean and The Chariot, so I'm gonna have to check them out now.

    Dude the heaviest breakdown ever written IMO is at the end of Broken Mouth by Martyr A.D. Nothing better to get you through a slump in the gym than having that riff hit! I mean that entire cd is ridiculous breakdown after ridiculous breakdown!

    I dont know if this has been mentioned either but the breakdown from Dead To Fall's Bastard Set Of Dreams could enable me to lift cars. If you don't want to listen to the whole song (it's a good song) the breakdown starts at 1:40

    Good news: Found a band that I really like this past week. A Dozen Furies won the battle of Ozzfest in 2003 and released "A Concept from Fire" in 2005. It's a really good metalcore album. For fans of All That Remains, Shadows Fall, Becoming the Archetype, etc.

    Bad News: Unfortunately they split in 2006.

    One of my favorite bands that broke up before they really were ever given a chance are Falling Cycle, out of SOCAL, on Facedown records. Them and Sinai Beach were coming up around the same time and even saw them play with AILD, but then out of nowhere they just sort of broke up. http://www.myspace.com/fallingcycle

    That was also when Sinai Beach was great as well, but I did not care for their release on Victory records.

    Another band from Facedown was Symphony In Peril, which also broke up in 2005.

    I just recieved Between the Buried and Me's newest CD Colors. Great CD. I really can't explain it. It's one of those CD's you just need to listen to to appreciate. Kind of like Tool if you catch my drift.

    Strife




    A huge influence on me. Strife is one of the bands that pulled me into the hXc scene let alone sXe scene...

    MySpace

    It's been too long. Legendary hardcore destroyers Strife have returned with a new force of destruction so powerful that, like other Strife releases before it, will forever alter the landscape of hard music as we know it. "Angermeans" will hit stores on December 18.

    Strife got their start in Los Angeles, CA in 1991 and quickly became one of the first hardcore bands from the west coast to gain worldwide notoriety. Together with their east coast partners (and eventual labelmates) Earth Crisis, Strife began to inspire young people in California and across the nation to fight for their mantra.

    Strife quickly took the world by storm, releasing their debut CD, "One Truth"(VR16) in 1994. The album quickly took off, going on to sell tens of thousands of copies inspiring people to stand up for their beliefs. Strife became a symbol of freedom to choose one’s own lifestyle. Strife became the flagbearers of uplifting and motivating hard music. Strife convinced thousands of young people to stand up for their rights and beliefs in a manner that no other band before or since has been able to capture.

    To tide over hungry fans across the nation, Strife released the much-heralded "Grey" 7"(VR32) in 1996. The release showcased two previously unavailable tracks, "Grey" and "To An End". Later that year, Strife became one of the first hardcore bands to document their travels and live shows in a groundbreaking Video release known only as ‘One Truth ‘(VR43). The video showcased the antics (some of them life-threatening) of a young band on the road from California to New York City, “One Truth Live” showed a true perspective of life as a touring band.

    In 1997, Victory released Strife's sophomore studio album, "In This Defiance"(VR54). The album brought together the mainstream and underground metal and hardcore genres into one complete package of mayhem, destruction and pestilence. Featuring guest appearances from members of FEAR FACTORY, SEPULTURA and DEFTONES, "In This Defiance" was a groundbreaking album for Strife fusing the gap between hardcore, punk, and metal.

    It was a dark and dismal day in early 1998 when Strife made the critical decision to disband and simply walk away from their much beloved music scene; a scene that they felt was becoming increasingly stagnant and uninteresting. It was time for fans across the nation and around the world to mourn the loss of one the most important and scene altering hardcore bands to ever take the stage. Hardcore would never be the same.

    In early 2000, Strife once again made an important decision. After reforming to play several benefit shows for the family of a close friend who had recently passed away, the members of Strife realized that the time was right to bring the band back into the waiting arms of the Hardcore scene. Strife was reborn, and they soon began writing material for a new release. Strife returned to the studio in July of 2001 to begin tracking for "Angermeans." Strife’s new CD will be released on December 18. "Angermeans" not only brings forth the resurrection of one of the pinnacle underground bands of the 1990’s, it also lays the groundwork for other hard rock bands to follow and build upon. The CD features guest appearances from some of the most talented and influential musicians in music today. Cypress Hill's ace percussionist Bobo funks things up with his tribal drum rhythms.

    Strife's third album has been highly anticipated for over four years marking their strongest and most diverse work ever. Their live show is unparalleled in its intensity and brutality. In support of their new record, Strife is currently in the process of gearing up for their first U.S. tour in more than 4 years

    I get my music from Amazon. I also have new CD's by Oh Sleeper, Demon Hunter, and Parkway Drive coming. Looking forward to that.

    Also, check out Mnemic (might have been mentioned already). If you like In Flames, you'll like these dudes.

    I'll have to check out Strife later for sure.

    Speaking of BTBM and sort of piggybacking off of another post, they made a cover album called [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Between-Buried-Me/dp/B000FIHJFG/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=musi c&qid=1196235547&sr=8-4"]"The Anatomy Of."[/ame] Some really solid remakes on there from bands like Metallica, Motely Crue, Soundgarden, Pantera, Queen, Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, etc.

    I had forgotten about that, but their cover of Bicycle Race was pretty good.
