Crime In Stereo - 2004 Demos

For some of us, Crime In Stereo will always be that Hardcore band that put out one hell of split with Kill Your Idols, but as it has come, they are more widely known as that Alternative Punk band from Bridge Nine Records. I'm not complaining in the least bit, I actually enjoy all of CIS, but as much as I love Is Dead, I will always love early CIS.

And since they have come back into existence, even stating that they will release new music as well, I figured why not give a little taste of where the band came from. I could of posted the OG Three Song Demo, but I see that posted everywhere, so I figured why not give yous guys something a little less known.

I came across this demo a very long time ago, so long, I don't really remember what I got it, but here you go. Nothing really new here, these were the demos for the Explosives LP, and all made it except for Of Return, which ended up on Love 7" released in 2007.

Not much change from these songs to the LP versions. but you can defiantly hear the pre production sound in these. I just wanted to post this as an appreciation to a band that over the years, have continued to write and preform amazing music. I can not wait for more shows and new music.

Brother's Keeper - Unreleased Demos

So it's been a while, but i finally got everything situated but enough talk, time for more music.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love Brother's Keeper (I'm pretty sure Continuum was my first vinyl record i bought) and even when other's might hate on the band, to me they will always be one of my favorite.

If you get a change to listen to their entire discography, I suggest doing so to really get the full feel of how amazing this band was. If you listen to Fantasy Killer than listen to something like the 2 Dollar Bill tape or Shadowcast EP you will hear such a difference yet such similarity in those recordings. Not many bands can incase me in their discog. like Brother's Keeper.

So years ago, I believe EMS of BK ran a blog that uploaded the whole BK Discography, and of course I downloaded it but the best part of it was hearing these demos that i never knew existed. One of those, and my absolute favorite, was the very last songs that BK ever did. When I heard them, it automatically upset me because i knew that Brother's Keeper wouldn't write and release their best album ever.

The first songs was more rough demos than the next four, but still good. But really, those last 4 songs were jaw dropping. So much so, that here we are years later and i'm still dying to tell people how fucking amazing these tracks are. I've been a fan for years, and I honestly that nothing could top BK late 90's, but damn, that changed with these songs.

It was always funny to because since me getting these tracks, I've always told people that they are my favorite from BK but of course, no one knew of them. So here we are, me sharing what I believe is some of the best music written in the 00's. I hope all y'all hear what I hear with these songs!'

Kashyyyk - Purpose Escapes

Kashyyyk, or like most of us call it "What the fuck does that say?" 
has nothing to do with Star Wars, but more to do with Soulja Boy.

Scary sounding Heavy/Crusty/Punk/Hardcore from the shitville known as Arizona, Kashyyyk are here to punish your ear drums and make you see this worthless piece of shit world we live in for what it's really worth. 

If you're into this EP, be sure to pick up a Cassette from their web store because it has all their old Demo's on one Tape!

And be on the look out for new tunes from these boys, a full length is on the horizon.

His Hero Is Gone Discography

When I was like Young Kid/Pre Teen/Young Teen I tried to buy music whenever i could. My mom knew how much I like music so when we went to the store she usually allotted me twenty dollars or so to get something.

At this time, Metal and Punk were what I was into, but it wasn't too hard to find something i liked when I went to WalMart (weird, I know) and Best Buy (the only two places that sold music near me.) Walmart carried Victory Records and Epitaph Records that was uncensored and Best Buy has some weird finds but by the but loads and they usually were not bad a price, but whenever I got to go to Zia Records (which was pretty rare since we didn't always hang out in Phoenix anymore) I would buy ANYTHING that looked remotely like i might like it.

I'd pass up stuff i'd know i could find at either of the places and just buy anything i've heard of before, seen the name of in Thank Yous and Friends of bands or fliers, bands on the same record label as others I like, or really just looked cool. I've found so many (and bought so many) random CD's which now makes sense why my like for most bands/genres are pretty here and there. One of those bands was no other than His Hero Is Gone.

I think it just caught my eye and the name sound cool. It was Monument To Thieves and i remember before i even listen to it I looked at the booklet first and thinking they were a KKK band or something. I really dont know why, but that memory always comes up when thinking of HHIG haha. Anyway, i was completely taken by the album. It was just perfect (and still is today). I can recall thinking Like Weeds  end to abruptly and should of been longer. But really, i think the whole album should of been longer (i think it's like 25mins or so).

Being like 13 or so when I first got into them was pretty cool, pretty much open  my ears to alot more bands of the similar sound. I think the only bands i listen to that had blast beats at the time were Youth Crew type of bands, and random Metalcore bands sounded kinda heavy like any case I am happy to have found such a band an such a time.

SO with all that, I present everything I could find. I up loaded it for a friend and figured why not for here as well? Enjoy!

IRON - Sex Positive Hardcore

"Is this the current state of the Hardcore scene?" If this is spoken about IRON, then I say "I sure as fuck hope so."

IRON comes straight (or Gay?) at you with one of the most voracious punch to the cock that I've ever heard. Being told to give them a listen was probably one of the best things to happen to me in 2013, and I'm not joking.

Hailing from Malmö, Sweden IRON takes a fast, raw Hardcore/Punk sound and mix it with strong  lyrical content about stances on Veganism, Straight Edge, Sex Positivity, Gender Equality, Hardcore Pride and Anit-Capitalism. So, pretty much they fucking rule in every way possible. Everything about this band screams "FUCKING HARDCORE RULES IN SO MANY WAYS".

I really don't know what to say other then this is by far my favorite release in 2013, not just demo or Hardcore, in general. I wanted my last post of the year to be something amazing and I think this does just fine.

PLEASE download and thank me later.

Just an FYI, this is their Demo which later (same recordings) released at Sex Positive Hardcore 7" with a bonus song, 'Quick Fix' which I did throw in there.

Brother's Keeper - Five Hits From Hell

It's Halloween tomorrow and their is no way I can not post a Halloween treat!

Once again, this is a cover CD of classics songs by the ghoul gods themselves, Misfits. But this time, it's more of Hardcore take done right by Eire's powerhouse Brother's Keeper, who keep it creepy but keep it "Core" with these set of covers.

Most might not be a fan of BK, but hopefully that doesn't turn you away from checking out these covers that were done SOOO right.

Besides, what's Halloween without some good music??

Mad World - The Outsiders

Ohio has been a hot bed of rad bands for the past few years. I don't know for sure, but my heart might be in Ohio...I mean it is for lovers and stuff, right? Well, in any case it seems they continue with Mad World.

Bringing ten bangers for all to hear, Mad World's The Outsiders bring that early 2000's sound that i'm ever so in love with. Sounding like a mix of Set It Straight, With Honor and Ten Yard Fight, The Outsiders does not have one sour note in the 20 or so minutes it plays.

Movie samples, gang vocals, good double pedal work, short fast and aggressive songs and there are eleven songs!!

Although what Mad World plays isn't anything new, it is very refreshing to hear a band that I can say sounds something  like a band i would of seen in the early 00's without it being a band who tries to rip off With Honor's This Is Our Revenge in the worse possible way. Stop trying to sound like Defeater new bands, you keep doing it wrong aways.

The Facebook says that Mad World should be throwing out some new songs early next year, so best believe Part Two of "How Awesome is Mad World?!" is coming your way. Support this band band lets hope they get to tour on the West Coast, then the WORLD!...the Mad World that is, ;D
