Get The Most was a Youth Crew band from the Northwest. Started from Go It Alone and Blue Monday members, Get The Most quickly got in top with the release of this, Core Vales Demo.
My favorite thing about this demo, is that even though it is more typical Youth Crew hardcore, it ever gets played out? If that makes any sense. I mean, I'm here, 8 years later, and I can listen to it as if I just got it. Even though every release was just as solid as the next, something always bring me back to this demo. Could be maybe because I found it when I became more active in the Hardcore scene? Maybe its because it's a release that help me find friends who weren't all into Beatdown or Metalcore stuff. Or maybe it's because it's the Insted cover? Honestly, it doesn't matter, a solid release is a solid release and Get The Most have one of the most solid releases in the past 10 years of hardcore.

I FINALLY GET TO POST THIS! After trying get my old computer working, and failing at it, I came across a few DVD's...I guess the younger me was smarter than I thought, because I backed up a few music files into DVD's. So do expect a few more gems I found.
Collateral Damage was never the biggest Hardcore band or most known, but with releases on Indecision Records and New Age Records, I would think they were a little more known. But none of that really matters, because in the end C.D. wrote and records some amazing records.
I came across this record by accident, not knowing who they were or what they sounded like but when i seen they were on Indecision, I thought it couldn't be that bad...and damn was I right.
At first listen, I thought it was another Dan O'Mahony project, seeing at they had similar vocal stylings, but that wasn't the case. But that was one of the reasons that drew me into the band. Four songs, clocking in just under 12 minutes, made for perfect record listening.
I really don't know what to say about this record really, I kind of hope you just fallin love with it like i have. This isn't the only release, they did have another EP after this, but seeing as I still can't find that, you're going to have to stick with this for a while. But I really do hope you enjoy this and if you like this, order the "Let Me Be Broken" EP on New Age Records...haha I know, but I heard ordering got a little better.
As I look back on those days they were active, I see myself as one of the lucky ones who got to see them live. When you seen Dave hit the stage barefoot, you know you were about to get a show.
Everyone once and awhile Final Fight comes up on my iPod, and my realization of them not being a band hits me again and I miss them dearly. So that leaves me with this post, the original Demo CD-R.
I've seen other people most the "Demo", but really they are just posting the Self Titled 7" and like a song or two of this demo.
When I first heard this, I was taking away. The music didn't sound like a shitty demo, and the vocals always caught me and pulled me in. Not only my favorite FF release, but one of my fav demos of all time.
The best part of this demo, is it showcases exactly what the band was about to offer. Give it a listen, share it around, maybe Hype can be put back on the band and they'll do a reunion. If Judge can do it, so can Final Fight.

Bonus post! I originally up loaded this for my friend, then I thought why not share with everyone?This, to my knowledge, is Nazi Dust's Discography...so far.
Based out of Florida, Nazi Dust keep the Powerviolence alive and well in the great Orange State...or Sunshine state? Whatever. Enjoy!
For fans of: Powerviolence...and that's all that should matter.
I figured why since I don’t post as much as I want, why not give something awesome to make up for it?!
Breakdown is probably one of the most solid Hardcore bands I’ve ever heard. Even going back to the beginning, the songs always had something that stood out for me.
I could of took the easy way out and uploaded Blacklisted, but then I thought, why not post something most people forget…Plus/Minus. For some reason, people stop listening to Breakdown after the Blacklisted EP…I don’t know why, but Plus/Minus always felt exactly the same…only longer. Maybe it’s because it’s a full length, or maybe because older songs where rerecorded? I’ll never understand when asking people if they liked P/M more so than Blacklisted, they respond, “Oh I’ve never actually listen to it.”
And yes, it’s obviously happen on many occasions to where I’ve actually had to post about it on my blog -_-
Any who, download this amazing record. I mean, seriously, how well-crafted is “Megalomaniac” for the first track of an album?! So unreal. ENJOY!http://www.mediafire.com/?xax1nk9al0nn2j6

With such an awesome name as xFILESx, how does one not automatically listen to them?!
Fairly short lived band, xFILESx bring the heavy and pick up the speed to deliver short, fast, pissed and funny? to Hardcore Punks all around the world.
This 7" has been going through my head lately, so might as well make you suffer (or is it heaven?) as well.
Over the past few weeks I'm been pretty busy, mostly with work and film related stuff. I had an amazing opportunity to hit the road with my buds in Step Aside/Wrong Idea for the weekend Mindset California tour.
It was beyond anything I could of expected. Hanging with friends as they trekked through Cali, while meeting a few new friends, was something I never thought I'd get the chance to actually do. I can't thank everyone who made that trip possible, it was something I will NEVER forget.
But when I was there, my buddy (Dom; film maker partner) and I filmed an extensieve part of the trip. From the Tour Kick Off show in Tucson, to the last day at Chè Cafè, we documented everything we could of.
Now, two weeks later, I'm getting ready to go through all the footage we captured and make something for all to see.
Step Aside - "In Search of Something More" will be a full documentary on the past, present and future of the band. As well as a look into the Mindset tour, and more. It might take a while, but the doc. is in full swing.
Please take a look at this trailer I made, just for a glimpse of what's to come. Hopefully you'll be as stoked as I am putting it together.
