New M.O.R.A. tunes



New 7" by Finland's MORA is coming in about a month. It's gonna be called 'Halveksunnan aika' and I have it from the sources close to the band that it translates to 'Times of Contempt' in English. Of the two new tracks that you can stream right now, Jaksaa jaksaa is a definite winner.

Video: Crowned Kings - Enemy



This track is probably their best stuff to date. This, and the fact that Dre Stewart from the Donnybrook is submitting guest vocals, makes me seriously consider checking out their new album (Demons Run Amok). I did an interview with this band back in 2010.

New Disgrace coming soon



As you might know about two weeks from now Disgrace is dropping new album via Closed Casket Activities. It's gonna be called 'True Enemy' and judging by the two tracks they are already sharing from the record, it's gonna be dope. As far as metallic hardcore goes, this is one of the newer bands I dig the most. A perfect blend of gritty hardcore vibe and raw heaviness, everything served with double dose of aggression.

Respect the bad guy



Kruch breaking down the science of being tough:

pahxc: HOW MANY PEOPLE DID WE HAVE TO BEAT UP TO BE LABELED A TOUGH GUY BAND?

Good question, we became a "Tough Guy" band in 96', before that we where only in a triple A tough guy league....But in 96 we beat up the required amount to turn "PRO Tough Guy band"...I believe the number was 666..We are very very proud of our "TOUGH GUY BAND" Status, originally we where going to be a "Youth Crew" band, but we where not skinny enough..then we decided to try "Emo", but noone in the band wore glasses, plus sweaters make me itch..The whole Vegan thing woulda been great for us, except for the fact that we love to torture animals and stuff, so eventually we tried this "Tough Guy" style out, and it's workin' out O.K.

New Blood: Cold Truth


Cold Truth are keeping it real in their area, which is Tacoma, WA. Definitely a band worth checking out if you're into hard-hitting, aggressive hardcore with a crossover vibe.

Tell us what people should know about Cold Truth.
We’re a straight edge hardcore band from Tacoma, WA. We just let the music speak for itself.

How did the band get its start?
I came along pretty early in the game. My understanding is that when Trevor, our singer, and Patrick, our bassist, were in Prepare the Bride half of that band went to start Singled Out. Trevor and Patrick decided to do a heavy band. Originally it was going to be like this early 2000’s Throwdown kind of thing. Then Trevor asked me if I wanted to play guitar. So, I wrote Choke, Life Lesson, and True Love pretty quickly, and Patrick and I collaborated on Mind’s Eye. We got Chris to slap some drums on it real quick and went to the Mukilteo Mansion and recorded with Cameron Heck. Then we had the South Sound Demo.
