Another band from Brazil that proves the scene over there is definitely in the right place. Wolfdog hails from Sao Paulo and plays aggressive hardcore with NYHC influences. Every band that aims to recreate the same spirit as the one on classic Warzone, Agnostic Front or Breakdown albums gets nothing but love on this blog. Here's an interview with Felipe who plays guitar in Wolfdog.
Violent City from Belgium recently dropped visuals for their song Empty World. I am definitely digging this track, and the rest of their latest ep Fuck Your World is dope as well. One of the new European bands to look out for.
Bottomfeeder drops the first track off their upcoming full length album! It is entitled 'Dead But No Longer Dreaming' and is streamig already on their Stereokiller profile so make sure you check it out. This shit is too dope, seriously. This is definitely type of stuff we want to hear more - metallic hardcore in its grimest and hardest form. Nothing fancy, just straight in your face pitbull-like aggression.
With American Gestapo Taste The Steel is spreading awareness about how freedom is slowly being taken away from people in today's America. People got some comfortable and lazy they don't even care. The same stuff is happenig in Europe, bands from over here need to open their eyes and tackle these problems in their lyrics as well. Musically, the band has cooked up some real heavy-ass metallic hardcore. Rough shit! Let's hope this is a teaser for more music to come from the band in near future.
We live in a frightening era of apathy where our liberties are being swept away from us systematically through distraction, ignorance, & fear. If we as a people no longer stand up for civil liberties & basic freedoms that those before us shed blood for. Then we no longer deserve those freedoms.
Bent Life - Full Skull (Fist in the Air Records/6131 Records ) - After Bent Life’s self titled 7” ep I knew this album gonna be dope. Musically, they didn’t change that much but that’s good. The album sticks to the same sound that made the ep so cool and the result is just as dope as I expected. Most of the time, Full Skull is very energetic and heavy with Bent Life coming correct delivering tons of gritty riffs and fat grooves that should get your head nodding.
Cutdown is definitely one of my favorite bands I have been fan of their music for a long time and am beyond stoked to have them featured on this site. Below is an interview that I've done with band's vocalist, Esa, touching upon range of topics from band's beginnings, his thoughts on scene in Finland to recent record titled Harsh Reality and more. I hope you enjoy reading the interview as much as I did doing it.
This one is fucking dope. Wilful Damage (Brisbane, Austria) has just dropped new ep called Pride which they share for free on their stereokiller page. The band is one of the hardest to come from Australia in recent years - the ep is heavy as hell, all the tracks rip. Don't sleep on it!
