Toska

Toska

Woooah. Hefty and furious stuff from Philadelphia with members of Hot Cross, Nema, The Scarlet Letter, Monster X, Stations, To Tremble, Stockpile and Tigon. Yep this list reads pretty well and Toska is really no bummer. Their debut ep is one hell of a dark bastard and every song is a devastating piece between hardcore,… Read More »

JohnXMcClane

Now that’s awesome. Super-fast, pissed off 4 piece powerviolence band from Margate, UK. Absolutely a highlight for fans of Fissure, SNF and Sickmark. The music video for “Maggot” was filmed and edited by Joel Snowman. “Fucking maggots are all I see, You don’t mean a thing to me. Blinded by your perfect vision, Tired of… Read More »

Mont-Doré

Mont-Doré

Some massive and epic screamo from Brussels/Belgium for fans of Loma or Viva Belgrado. “Let’s say we are just searching to enjoy a view. It’s all about sweet tension and violence. Expressing the more with deep shouts and the rest. And finally, raising flags on top of things we really care about.” Mont-Doré is great… Read More »

Mustard Mustache Records and I are going to release a tape of this great demo. So glad that they asked us. Well FlowersxOfxCarnage are some DIY kids from Asia playing intense emoviolence/screamo stuff in the most awesome way.

King's Girls

King’s Girls

This 4-piece Halifax based group is one of my favourite new emoviolence bands. After their brilliant ep called “Numbers” which was released on 30 December 2013, the guys are back with some harsh tunes. The new EP “King’s Girls” captivates again with some old-school-style emoviolence/screamo attacks and staggering guitars. Everything is just beautiful distorted and… Read More »

Celestica Very promising 5-piece modern hardcore/post-hardcore from örebronx in sweden. Their debut EP, which looks drop-dead gorgeous, is called “I Could Never Let You In” and it gets better with every song. The last track “Antipathy” is probably the best modern hardcore song I heard in a long long time. Top notch ambiance guitars, on… Read More »

Yusuke

Yusuke

Great. This really could’ve been on some old screamo/emo sampler. Yusuke is a 3-piece screamo band from around Illinois. Think of bands like Orbit Cinta Benjamin, Violent Breakfast, The Walls You’ve Built or Louise Cyphre and you know what to expect. Sounds perfectly rough and aggressive…combining really straight-forward emoviolence/screamo parts with cool interlude/intro-sections. “Reflections of… Read More »

Kapytaen

Kapytaen

Rejoice! Rejoice! Kapytaen equals love. These 4 guys play a very captivating dark-hardcore-violence blast between bands like Alpinist (or Jungbluth), Hexis, maybe Danse Macabre…and yeah they do it unbelievable well. The band was founded in autumn of 2012 and they recorded this whole thing in winter 2012/2013. It’s a pretty astounding result for such a… Read More »
