good clean fun | us
which is the best-known band of the last 10 years that plays driving melodic oldschool hardcore and is trying to bring back fun into the scene?
rise and fall | belgium
the biggest european hype at the moment, right? this band, influenced by clevo and new york hardcore, bands like Integrity, Cro-Mags and/or Entombed, has definitely found their own style and unique bright and violent sound
the suicide file | us
oldschool hardcore from Boston on Indecision records. what more can we say? maybe that this band includes of members of Hope Conspiracy...
amanda woodward | france
together with Yage (rip), without a doubt leaders of the european screamo hardcore scene. in the tradition of fingerprint, etc played with their own intensity, passion, and DIY feeling with a deep social-political and emotional message
seein red | netherlands
hardcore/punk veterans, former members of larm, anarchist/leftwing politically active people, and in their 40ties still fast, raw and more powerful than most bands nowadays
heaven shall burn | germany
its been a while since this metalcore band showed up into hardcore scene and they doesnot sound tired at all! and yeah, no pussycore inlfuence and melodic vocals! i am happy about that!
new winds | portugal
hardcore punk. ultra political and vegan straightedge, musically compared to Ignite or Nations On Fire. after last year's success at fluff fest booked again. don't miss them, it’s the last chance to see them in our area - this is their final tour, the band decided to call it quits!!
born from pain | netherlands
midtempo tough mosh hardcore legends from netherlands. no need to introduce.
monster | germany/poland
members of bands like Highscore, Costa's Cake House, Peace of Mind, A Thin Red Line, or Ugly Aesthetics formed new d-beat Berlin based boyband!
the now-denial | germany
pretty energetic hardcore punk with political attitude, members or Hybris, Enfold, Hocus, durango 95 or Surf Nazis Must Die,... as they say: too sweet to be punk, too punk to be hardcore, too hardcore to be crust, too cynical to be anything at all
endstand | finland
Without doubt one of the most popular and respected bands in Europe! Endstand have gone a long way to form their own particular style. few bands work as hard as them. in their music you can sense the aggression of Sick Of It All, the explosiveness of Strike Anywhere, or the melodic feeling of The Nerve Agents, creating a combination you just can’t ignore!
31 knots | us
highly technical indierock. not unlike Q And Not You Dischord type era
zann | germany
long-time hardworking DIY screamo hardcore collective from germany. screamo bands are always hard to describe, but if you dont know them, expectmix or Neil Perry, Kiss It Goodbye and 90ies gravity rcs bands. bravurly played vs dirty sounded!
bridge to solace | hungary
innovative and heartfelt newschool full of great arrangements. a perfect mixture of fast-paced hardcore and heartbreaking melodies with a heavy-metal touch and cynical and heavily political lyrics
guided cradle | czech
Guided Cradle is a band of czech, american and scotish punx based in Prague. raw disbeat punk influenced by band like Anti-cimex or svedish crust d-beat achool.
teamkiller | germany
this band formed by members of Absidia and Sidekick is becoming the new hype. i believe it’s because of their energetic live shows. musically influenced by early SOIA, Cro-Mags, Judge with maybe a more metallic sound and everlasting passion for the hardcore scene
yacöpsae | germany
legendary pissed off highspeed powerviolence
action | czech
mid-tempo mosh combining with melodic death metal, most hardworking and most promising czech band playing this kind of music. devasting stuff, think Arkangel or Born From Pain
reproach | belgium
pissed off fast hardcore skate thrash from belgium, think of early D.R.I.
nueva etica | argentina
veganstraightedge combo with 3 vocals from buenos aires. political angry hardcore in the vein of path of resistance or early integrity

austin lucas | us
