    *** The Official HXC Music Thread ***



    I've been naming/recommending some bands that like in other threads, so I figured I would start a thread of xHardcorex bands I like. I might list a few heavy/metal bands I dig, but mainly bands with HXC roots, which includes the sub-catgories of the genre: Metal-Core, Melodic-Core, etc...

    If you recommend a band feel free to post.

    As I Lay Dying (AILD)




    MySpace/asilaydying

    I figured I would start off with this band, because they are probably in my top 5, plus the have a new release 8/21/07. They are probably one of the more recongnized Metal-core bands around thanks to siging to Metal Blade records, and Headbanger's Ball IMO

    wiki:As I Lay Dying are a Christian metalcore band. They are currently signed to Metal Blade Records. The band's members have stated there is no correlation between the band's name and the novel of the same name by William Faulkner. The band recently won the "Ultimate Metal God" award from MTV2 at the first annual "All That Rocks" special.

    History

    As I Lay Dying were formed in 2001 by vocalist Tim Lambesis after leaving the band Society's Finest where he was playing guitar. The San Diego band first took shape as a trio, with guitarist Evan White and drummer Jordan Mancino completing the lineup. They soon signed with Pluto Records and one month into the bands career, the group went into a recording studio to record their first album Beneath the Encasing of Ashes, released in June of 2001. In 2002, the band recorded five additional songs along with another San Diego heavy metal band, "American Tragedy", to record a split CD which was on Pluto Records, the same label that released the bands debut album Beneath the Encasing of Ashes

    After extensive touring and an increase in popularity, As I Lay Dying signed with "Metal Blade Records" in March of 2003. In July, 2003 the band's second full-length album, Frail Words Collapse, produced by Tim Lambesis, was released and with extensive touring with the likes of Himsa, Shadows Fall, The Black Dahlia Murder, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Hatebreed and other popular heavy metal bands followed. Their videos for the songs of, "94 Hours" and "Forever" got heavy rotation on the networks of FUSE and MTV2's Headbanger's Ball. The band was also the No. 1 most-downloaded spot at the now-defunct MP3.com

    In the beginning of January 2005, As I Lay Dying entered Big Fish Studio in Encinitas, California (the same place they’d recorded Frail Words Collapse). In June of 2005, the band released their third full-length CD Shadows Are Security and they went on yet another massive tour to support the album, including a prominent slot at the annual Cornerstone Festival and the second stage of Ozzfest 2005 alongside Rob Zombie, Killswitch Engage, Mastodon, The Haunted, Arch Enemy, Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead, It Dies Today, and Soilwork. They said they were blessed to do this because they want to shed light on one of the darkest places and concerts.

    In May of 2006 both Beneath the Encasing of Ashes and the songs from their first and so far only split album (with the heavy metal band American Tragedy as the second band on the split album) were re-released through Metal Blade Records on one CD. The album contains the original and re-recordings of the songs from the split album. The CD was released because the band preferred to re-release it rather than have fans pay large sums of money to hear their early records. The band notably raised its profile in 2006 to that of a band on the verge of commercial success through their support slot on the Taste of Chaos tour in the US alongside bands such as Deftones, Thrice, Dredg, Funeral for a Friend and Story of the Year.

    In the summer of 2006 As I Lay Dying closed the Sounds of the Underground Festival. The tour included In Flames, Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, Gwar, Evergreen Terrace, Chimaira, Unearth, The Black Dahlia Murder, The Chariot, It Dies Today, Still Remains, and Terror as supporting acts.

    Bassist Clint Norris left the band on good terms during the winter of 2006, with the desire to focus on his marriage.

    In the beginning of 2007, As I Lay Dying started recording a new album originally thought to be titled "Evolution", but is now entitled "An Ocean Between Us". The album is set to be released on Aug 21, 2007.

    The band are performing on the Warped Tour 2007 during the month of August.

    Too Pure To Die



    Myspace/toopuretodie
    Staying with the brutal SXE theme.

    Wow looks like Too Pure To Die signed with Trustkill. Hope this is a good sign that Trustkill is going back to teh Heavy, and not Too Pure going the way of Throwdown....But they have a new vocalist, so we will see.

    Aug 29, 2007
    Trustkill Records has announced the signing of Too Pure To Die to our family of artists. The Des Moines based band has been building up momentum over the past few years including their full-length release Confidence And Consequence (Sumerian Records, 2006). The band has also been touring non-stop over the past year with full U.S. and Canadian runs alongside such bands at August Burns Red, Misery Signals, Sworn Enemy, Caliban, Kataklysm and The Acacia Strain. They are about to start another full U.S. run with All That Remains this Sept running through October. Since the band released Confidence And Consequence they have added Paul Zurlo (previously of Beyond All Reason) on vocals. The band is rounded out by Jordan Peterson (guitar) Chris Towning (bass), Zach Johnson (guitar) and Kyle Rossi (drums).

    Speaking on the signing to Trustkill, Peterson proclaims “When I started this band one of my original goals was to be on Trustkill, I don’t think we could make a better move than by joining forces.” Trustkill President, Josh Grabelle echoes the sentiments by saying “There are some bands that get together and expect the world handed to them on a silver platter. Not Too Pure To Die. These guys get out there and DO what other bands TALK about doing, they're running circles around most bands. I went and saw them play live with new singer Paul and was floored, they killed it. We are super excited to see what the future holds for TPTD!" Currently the band is holed up in the recording studio working on re-recording Confidence And Consequence with new vocals from Paul and a previously unreleased track. The label aims to release the new version at the end of November. Too Pure To Die are also working on new material for their next album to surface in Summer 2008.

    Word they got a new album, that's cool.
    I stopped paying attention a few years ago, but I still listen to all their older cds.

    My favorite is probably Demonstrating my style ... lots of memories with that one.

    Madball




    Old School NYHC at it's finest.

    Myspace/madball

    wiki: Madball is a New York band that originated back in the late 1980s, as a side-project of the legendary NYHC outfit Agnostic Front (Where AF's front man Roger Miret would let his younger brother Freddy "Madball" Cricien take the microphone on lead vocals during AF shows).

    After releasing the Ball of Destruction single in 1989, the buzz around the streets was the question of when was Madball going to play next gave birth to an early version of the band playing live on other bills then just AF shows. It wasn't until 1991 when Madball truly hit their stride, when the lineup of Freddy Cricien on vocals, guitarists Matt Henderson and Vinnie Stigma, drummer Will Shepler, and bassist Hoya Roc of Dmize joined forces. The new version of the band (not just all AF members) quickly recorded and released an EP called [[Droppin' Many Suckas]] in 1992, which eventually led to the band signing with Roadrunner Records in 1994. After releasing a pair of well-received full-lengths (1994's Set It Off and 1996's Demonstrating My Style) and touring steadily, the band built a sizeable fan base outside their hometown.

    1995 saw the band participating in the N.Y.H.C. Documentary. Extensive interviews were conducted with Freddy as well as a performance on July 29th, 1995 at the now defunct "Coney Island High". Freddy's brother, Roger, broke several vertebrae in his back at that show, requiring him to be in traction for the better part of a year.

    Consisting of Cricien, Henderson, Hoya, and new drummer John Lafatta, the band recorded Look My Way, which was released in the spring of 1998. Hold It Down followed two years later. For the past three years Madball has come out with a CD evey year: Best of Madball in 2003, N.Y.H.C. (EP) in 2004, & what many consider their finest album yet, Legacy in 2005.

    Madball is still heavily promoting their latest release "Legacy" on Ferret Records with tour dates all around the world. Along with bands such as Agnostic Front, Vietnom, Bulldoze, Resistance and H2O, they comprise a part of New York's DMS Crew. Vocalist Cricien and bass player Hoya are also in the band Hazen Street, along with members of H2O, Cro-Mags, Angels and Airwaves, and Box Car Racer.

    The band announced on their official MySpace page that they will release a new album by fall of 2007; there is also a DVD release planned in the near future.

    The Handshake Murders




    The Handshake Murders tear it up. Remind me a lot of Coalesce. The band is made up of members of Norma Jean & Spitfire.

    MySpace/thehandshakemurders

    Found a few live tracks, but audio is pretty crappy

    The music of defeat, of mud and ash, THE HANDSHAKE MURDERS, this is what we are. We are thread and flesh clinging to processed bodies and encompassing desire. We are nowhere. We are Arkansas. We are the singular erratic formation of five years and competence, a journey of crippling respiration and dispersing cries of hope. We are a juggernaut splintering the future. We are human, and we are increase.

    Misery Signals




    MySpace/miserysignals


    wiki:Misery Signals is a melodic technical hardcore band formed in Wisconsin in 2002. The sound of their music is defined by bright melodies backed up by odd time signatures, heavy riffs and breakdowns. They are known in the metalcore scene for their musicianship and energetic live shows.

    Misery Signals was formed after the break-ups of several bands, those bands being 7 Angels 7 Plagues, Hamartia and Compromise. Having played temporarily with 7 Angels 7 Plagues, former Compromise vocalist Jesse Zaraska was approached by Ryan Morgan and Kyle Johnson for a new project, which would become Misery Signals. Jeff Aust from Hamartia at that point filled out the lineup on second guitar, and Ryan Morgan's brother Branden took the drums. Aust soon left the band and has since gone on to join With Honor, he was replaced by Stu Ross - a friend of Jesse Zaraska's from Edmonton, Canada.

    The band eventually signed to New Jersey's Ferret Records, releasing their first full-length, Of Malice and the Magnum Heart. After extensive touring, Zaraska decided to leave the band to focus on a smaller, less aggressive project named Sleeping Girl, at which point the rest of the band decided to put up an instrumental song on their MySpace page, encouraging anyone who wanted to take over the spot of vocalist to record their own voice over the instrumental and e-mail it to the band. This was the way they found new vocalist Karl Schubach, with whom they recorded their next album, Mirrors.

    The Acacia Strain are bad ass...I also dig The Devil Wears Prada. I pre-ordered Plaques along with AILD, Madball, & Full Blown Chaos...

    Estella sound pretty solid as well, but I don't recall hearing them before. I will have to check out Carthage, because Foreknown is pretty solid...

    The Destiny Project fka dESTINY




    A pretty solid German band that is heavy and melodic. They have a new release in September, just hoping to get a copy stateside.

    MySpace/destiny


    Biography:
    In the end of 1997 five young kids decided to start a band called DESTINY. The next four years were used to get experiences in writing songs, playing shows, touring foreign countries and recording demos. Some of the recorded songs took place in several compilations. There were also a lot of line-up changes in that time, so that the current line-up wasn´t found until may 2001. In the following summer DESTINY went on their first european tour for nearly five weeks, through which they got a lot more attention in europe.
    Back home, the band started recording their first full-length DIVING INTO ETERNITY, which came out in January 2002 on Beniihana Records. The next few months were used for promoting the album by playing a lot of shows.
    In June 2002 the band went into the studio again to record 2 brandnew songs and to become more professional in refer to the work in a studio.

    In August 2002 DESTINY got signed with Lifeforce Records. Because of the fact that their debut album was sold out in Fall 2002, the band decided to do a totally remastered and new designed rerelease of DIVING INTO ETERNITY inculding two brand new bonus tracks, which came out in September 2003 on Beniihana Records.

    In August 2003 DESTINY went into the Ant Farm Studio in Denmark to record their first Lifeforce album which has been released in March 2004.

    Much love for Bleeding Through. I cross my fingers as I say this, but Brandon and the crew are the only ones staying to true to their HXC roots from the OC crew.

    I am not all that suprised to see what happened to EighteenVisions, but now Throwdown? Their new stuff is crap...

    Throwdown




    Another SXE band: When I first heard Throwdown, I was hooked. The breakdowns were brutal...Then a new singer took over, and they just weren't the same...

    They came to Denver twice when I listend to them. One time my buddy was putting on the show, but they had van problems and didn't get into town until late and everybody had left. The 2nd time I got to see them preform in a junk yard with Bleeding Through and 18V.

    This is a pretty accurate description of their style: "a mix between Hatebreed and Disciple. Metallic hc with totally brutal crunching mosh parts ala Hatebreed combined with the hard, scathing vocal fury of Disciple. Good mix of brutal mosh & metal combined with fast & old school parts."

    wiki:
    History

    Part 1: The Classic Throwdown (1997-2002)
    Keith, the original vocalist formed the band with and Javier Van Huss. Former Eighteen Visions guitarist and current Bleeding Through vocalist Brandan Schieppati was also a member of the group early on, though not an original member. Schiepettati replaced Eighteen Visions bassist Javier Van Huss shortly before the band recorded their demo and Throwdown for Prime Directive Records.


    Part 2: The New Throwdown (2002-Present)
    In 2002, then-second guitarist Dave Peters offered to do vocals when Barney was unable to finish up full sets from exhaustion. Some people say that this when the band changed into the "new" Throwdown. On technicality there are currently no original members in Throwdown anymore, however people who consider the Peters-fronted Throwdown a different band are okay with this, because Peters has never left his spot as vocalist since he volunteered the position.

    From Autumn to Ashes demo on Tribunal Records, which is a great label BTW, anywho"Sin, Sorrow and Sadness" My favorite stuff by them. The CD came in a plastic sleeve

    I like two songs that I know of from Funeral For a Friend: "Red Is the New Black" is a bad ass song IMO

    Wow, one of the topics I could probably discuss for years on end and never get bored! Hmm off the top of my head what do I want to share...

    Personally I grew up with the old Boston and NYC scenes. I look back in awe because friends of mine were in bands that went on to become legendary, mainly Slapshot and Overcast. I saw the last Youth of Today show, I saw several of the last Shelter shows, I never got to see Judge live but I love them to this day (still own and wear several of their shirts). I knew Dave Smalley from DYS, he owned a building a friend of mine lived in and he was heavily involved in local school art programs...very very nice guy. Had run-ins with many people back then who became legends over time and the memories are priceless. I remember buying the Judge "Chung King Can Suck It" record from a member of Inside Out, probably merely months before they became RATM. Choke from Slapshot now lives right near my parents and I ran into his wife when I was down there visiting for my birthday last weekend....weird how these things happen.

    Haven't been into it much lately, I went on OzzFest 2005 with two of my close friends' bands (Shadows Fall and Killswitch Engage) and did some production work for them on some material for their DVDs. The last ten years or so I've been performing less and doing more production and technical work, sadly losing touch with my ability to enjoy a show or have time to be in the pit. I was in one of the later-to-be-legendary bands before they became well-known, don't bother asking which one because I won't discuss it until our reunion plans are solidified, but when we got together this past winter to discuss a reunion and releasing a whole album worth of material that never got out, I got a bad taste in my mouth because the guys seemed to mainly be in it for the money these days. I'd still be in it for the music only, I'd play and even tour for free, and I told them to call me back when they decide to do it for the sake of the music and the fans. That was in February and my phone hasn't rang from anyone in that band since then.

    I think that's enough for now...I just love to reminisce...or however it's spelled...

    Anyone else on here from the old Boston/CT/Providence/NY scene?

    EDIT:

    I forgot to ask...speaking of Madball, whom I forgot all about, does anyone remember Downset? Kind of like the west coast's answer to Madball, I always liked them better!

    Oh and Trustkill Records...wow...almost anything they or Bridge 9 ever EVER put out has been incredible! Two of the best labels out there, picking up where Century Media left off when they got too black/death back in the late 90s...no offense to bands on CM, but I liked the label much better before they signed every single black metal band who asked...

    My buddy loves old school HXC. I dig a lot of bands, and even more so now, but when I started listening to HXC was in the mid 90's to bands like Earth Crisis, Strife, Living Sacrifice, and a little band you might have heard of, Hatebreed.

    But I know what you are saying though. I remember meeting and talking to Jamie Hatebreed whenever they came to Denver. And buy a few CD's he was pimping out of a box...They way HXC bands use to make money, and just enough to tour...

    I listened to some Overcast, Aftershock, Red Tide, Fortydaysrain, etc, and some Kill Switch Engage, but I prefer the current singer's previous band, Blood Has Been Shed, who I got a chance to see when they came to Denver.

    Their is a lot of great HXC bands to talk about, but the scene has changed. You still have bands that still play true to HXC form, but a lot are bands seem to be going main stream, and I think labels like Trustkill are leading the charge. Trustkill has released some great music over the past, but now a days it isn't been as great. Other than Terror who is playing HXC music? I dig Bleeding Through, but I just hope they don't follow the trend of the other Trustkill bands...Oh and my buddy stirred up some stuff with Trustkill by making some comments in a local zine about Walls of Jericho's female singer...

    ...as I was saying though, I don't care for Trustkill other than their early releases, that made a name for them. At least Bridge 9 still caters to the HXC scene.

    Yeah come to think of it I don't think I have a Trustkill release that's less then 5 years old, like I said I have fallen out of enjoying the music lately. Sad to hear they aren't the label they used to be.

    Yes I remember Hatebreed, do you remember Jasta 14? It was Jamie Jastrezemski's band before Hatebreed, I loved them, they were one of those bands I could count on to show up for any show no matter where it was or what the weather. Then I have this strange memory of Jamie promoting/producing/managing (I don't remember) a band called Channel...I have a red vinyl 7" somewhere....however time has slipped the memory away from me, I have no idea what Jamie had to do with Channel or why he gave me the record, all I know is that by the time I listened to it (it was awesome) and wanted to book them, the band had broken up. Maybe you know that piece of the puzzle.

    Oh I could just sit here and think for hours about all kinds of crazy stuff...I really appreciate being able to just throw all this stuff out there.

    May I ask where you heard about Overcast from? I am thinking you must have been right around me, I have a memory of the band I was in touring with Overcast and I think we were at the King's Head Inn in Virginia (which is the farthest we had ever toured, that's how I remember...but of course that was nothing for Overcast), and I remember both bands got that horrible silent treatment. The "unknown band syndrome" as my brother called it. Nobody knew who we were and we finished our sets, grabbed our money, and hit the road. Really awkward feeling, we even played PA and MD and stuff and had people know us. So that makes me think Overcast wasn't as widely-spread as I think they deserved to be.

    Nah, I never Heard Jamie's previous band.

    Most of the bands I heard was from my friend, or the fact I read the Very Distro mag front to back...Man I think that thing had 30+ releases per page.

    Sometimes you look at the record label and you already know what they sound like. Other times I would just take chances...Thanks goodness for the Internet now...

    You can actually hear a lot of bands before you pick up their release.

    warnerve-- Mike from KSE and Brian from Shadows Fall, I grew up with them both in lovely central Massachusetts, they were in a band called Overcast which I believe was THE best hardcore/metal band in history, period! I just found their MySpace page so check it out if you want to hear some of the songs:

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...endid=63075972


    I used to run a record label that was going to do an Overcast record, then I got deployed with the Army. When Overcast broke up I was asked to be part of KSE (yes, there never was a name change contrary to popular belief) by Mike but I declined because the practice space was in the opposite direction of where I was going to school at the time (already an hour commute!). This can all be verified through Mike, I have no reason to make up stories. I spent many many long hours of my life devoted to the success of Overcast both live and in the studio, and I wished nothing but success upon KSE when Mike started the band.

    PM me if you think you know me, I'd be absolutely ecstatic to network with people from the past. I'm sure this last post must narrow it down if you do know me....
