  1. ESP LTD Viper 301 ·
    For my purposes, it's great. If you like the Sg, but don't like the price then you might want to try one of these on for size.

  2. Best Hardcore, Punk, Indie-Rock, Metal Mailorder? ·
    This site is incredibly easy to use and the SEARCH function alone sets it apart. For example, type in the words CAVE IN and not only will you find every record, cd, sticker or shirt that they carry for the band but you will find merchandise...(more)

  3. We Are The Romans by Botch ·
    The untrained ear may be in for a shock... hell so might the trained ear. I had really enjoyed their first full length Lp (America Nervoso) and this was a bit of a departure. Sure, it still had many of the same odd time signatures...but thi...(more)

  4. Beyond Hypothermia by Cave In ·
    Some of you may have heard of Cave In. They have sense embarked on a different path, do not, I repeat do not buy this if you are anticipating the alterna-prog they produce today. "Beyond Hypothermia" is Hardcore ... with a cup of metal......(more)

  5. Times Of Grace by Neurosis ·
    Neurosis ... the sound of the formless void of purgatory. "Times of Grace" presents 11 tracks of mid tempo despair. A dark ochestra of heavy guitars, keyboards, traditional folk instruments and percussion. If you're looking for music to da...(more)

  6. 0:12 Revolution In Just Listening by Coalesce ·
    Another Hardcore and metal hybrid? Maybe more metal than hardcore this time? Did they finally discover Sabbath? Questions... hmmm..... I'm thinking that this is the best album by Coalesce yet. The time signatures are not quite as odd, and t...(more)

  7. Peavey Ultra Plus ·
    Well, I bought the amp used for a pittance. I guess you could say that I'm grading on a curve. If I had the chance I would certainly by this amp again. Sure, it would be nice if it had a sepertae eq for both dirty channels, but I can't sa...(more)

  8. Monuments To Thieves by His Hero is Gone ·
    Some have compared His Hero is Gone to an early Neurosis: Thrashy, distorted and mean.Truth be told HHIG is much better, the guitars are tuned lower and the lyrics are superior. The opening track, "Like Weeds", well....it had me at hello. ...(more)

  9. Reign In Blood by Slayer ·
    So, I picked up the guitar later in life than most. At the time I set a specific set of goals, one being that I wanted to learn the intro to "Raining Blood"...two weeks later I had it down pat. That's the beauty of this album. There are m...(more)

  10. Heretic by Disembodied ·
    What do I mean? Well, lets take Disembodied for example. Harsh and thick, angry as all hades, they make no apologies. From the first track, "Cynic" the eviscerate all who oppose them. Slash and burn, seek and destroy......the music rolls...(more)

  11. An Anthology Of Dead Ends by Botch ·
    For much of the '90s Botch were among the best in hardcore/punk. Anytime someone attempts to pigeon-hole the genre I drop their name as a glorious exception to the rule. Granted, there are thousands of exceptions to the stereotypes, but fe...(more)

  12. Surrounded By Thieves by High On Fire ·
    The first thing to sieze your attention is the cover art. Check your head, you are not in 1983 and this is not a Lizzy Borden lp. Still, the medieval marauder art is a blast from the past. So to is the music, spiritually more than sonical...(more)

  13. Oceanic by ISIS ·
    Sure, Erin Turner's bellowing is still essential to the sound, but like their mentors (Neurosis) they have discovered that the whisper can be just as powerful as the scream. This album is one part hardcore, one part ambient, two parts met...(more)

  14. Autopsy by Rorschach ·
    In the beginning there was a split ep, some compilation tracks and a good hardcore album called "Remain Sedate." Great songs like "Check Mate", "Lightening Strikes Twice" and "Oppress" slice through our beings with the precision of a laser...(more)

  15. Pulling Your Strings by The Black hand ·
    Angry, political and Canadian. Yes indeed, Quebecois in fact. Were you of the opinion that Frenchie Canucks couldn't rock? Well, think again and listen to this blazing ep. The first two songs are classic, "Disburden" and "Straightshooter...(more)

  16. She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not by KISS IT GOODBYE ·
    "Helevetica" kicks off the album with a blistering assault that will burn the most calloused of ear drums. Power chords, gobbs of gain: I'm talking about music so ugly that I'm sure these bastards were disowned by their mothers years ago. ...(more)
