Second in our series is Massachusetts' Fugitive.
"Legendary Western Mass maniac Tony P. (SQRM) helms this
terrorizing hardcore hatchet job with a storm of rippers about
ruining your scene, how you need a job, and that government chip in
your head. Adding extra fuel to the flames is Ian Logan (HOAX),
proving he is no one-trick pony when it comes to crafting superb,
violent riffs. Essential!"
Again, I personally don't have much info on these guys, so I added
this other blogs description of them.
This one came out a couple years back.
Straight forward angry fast hardcore that just rules, that's about all I
have to say about this one !!!!!

Ok, it's time for Remasters Series #3 !
Defunct Boston Hardcore band featuring Chris of Stop And Think,
Mind Eraser, Shitfit and PAINKILLER Records fame.
Don't know too much about this band, except that pretty
much all the members went on to other great Boston bands !
Early 2000's Boston was a prime time for new and blossoming
bands. The scene was unforgettable, and unfortunately you can't
bring that time here to the present. If I had a time machine, haha,
well you could only imagine the shows i'd go back in time for :)
But all that aside, it's time to start off a new Remasters Series
that my friend Pat and I have been working on.
So, here is the first in a series of 5 posts.
I give you Born In Hell !!!!!
01 Ready To Kill
02 War Drums
03 Strung Out
04 Who'd Have Thunk
05 You're Nothing
Raging hardcore from the midwest !!!!!
I suspect I might know people in this band, but not sure yet,
as I haven't made contact with any members yet.
I know a few people in the St. Louis scene including guys
from Cardiac Arrest & Sweet Tooth.
I have a feeling this band might contain members of those bands,
but again, not sure.
I'll find out soon ! :)
Anyway, this 7'' absolutely destroys !!!!!
St. Louis scene has been blazing pretty hard since bands like The
Breaks and Cardiac Arrest came on to the scene.
Don't know much about the St. Louis scene before 2000 (although
i've been in the hardcore scene since the dawn of time), but I
do know the last 15 years St. Louis has built up a solid reputation
for great hardcore and a ruckus crowd !
I've known Rob from Cardiac Arrest since the early 2000's, and
he is one of the driving forces behind their epic scene !!!!!
I freakin' love St. Louis, those bands know what's up !!!!!
Anyhow, hope to have more info on The Warden real soon.
These guys just kill it !!!!! Fantastic ep !!!!!

New powerviolence band from France.
Female fronted powerviolence that kicks ass !!!!!
Great new band !!!!!
I e-mailed them to tell em how much I like them (which got a very
positive response), but I need to find out more information about
these Parisian thrashers !
Highly recommended !!!!!
03 Brutal Vengeance
05 Pray 4 Yerself
Theses 2 bands, what I do know of them is they are both relentless
hardcore bands that can belt out the rage !
Rednecks who have been around most of the 2000's play pretty
straight forward hardcore with some slight twists, and Johns
Town Aloha (who features members of Breakfast) are more
noisy and crazed ripping Japanese sound !
Both bands tear it up on this split !!!!!
Didn't even know this split existed til just a couple weeks ago,
extremely pleasant surprise !!!!!
01 Rednecks - 45 Revolution
02 Rednecks - Lose A Border
03 Rednecks - Yoru No Akai Hikari
04 Johns Town Aloha - Japanese Title 1
05 Johns Town Aloha - Japanese Title 2
Again, I don't know much about these guys, but I do know
they put out a 20 song 7'' back on the mid or early 2000's that
was crazy, fast, noisy and just freakin' fantastic !!!!!
This came out in 2010. Still crazy as always, but less noisy
and slightly more poppy sounding.
These guys are nuts, I love it !!!!!
01 Noise From Nowhere
02 Enter The Raw Sound Brigade

Next 3 posts are from Japan.
Don't know a whole lot about the Japanese scenes, but I do know
alot of great bands past and present are from Japan !
Japanese scenes definitely have some mystery to them. Releases are
very hard to find most of the time, and the labels are slightly
difficult to find and contact if you don't speak, read or write in Japanese.
I hear they welcome bands from all over with open arms, said
to be one of the best places in the world to Tour !
Anyway, I don't want to sound ignorant and unworldly, haha, but
I am :)
All I do know is that I love Japanese hardcore, and have quite a big
collection of great bands from there !
Masterpeace, although I don't know much about them, they definitely
represent the fast and crazy stylings of this grand and wonderful
01 What's Your Right ? What's Your Fight ?
02 Destruction Imagination
03 Light And Shadow
04 The End's Beginning To Next World
Here's a great newer band from Palermo-Sicily, Italy !
Made up of members of Always Never Fun (ANF) and
other bands, these guys are what fastcore is all about !!!!!
My good friend Salvo sings for You Are The Problem,
as well as Always Never Fun. Salvo was also in the
band Elopram a few years back, also a great band (i'll
post some Elopram very soon !) !
You Are The Problem also features Dario from F.U.G.
on drums, Kevin from Always Never Fun on guitar, and
Tancredi from The Limit and Close To Collapse on bass.
Very promising new band, Demo should be coming soon
I believe !
These guys rip it up !!!!!
No track list yet.

This cassette was only available at the Not Dead Yet Festival
in Toronto November 2014.
It has the first demo and the Punk Survival MLP with one extra
track from the same MLP session.
Mix of Japanese and Swedish Raw/Punk/Noise, one of the best
bands in this genre !!!!!
Made up of members of Left For Dead and other great acts,
these guys are veterans.
Unfortunately the drummer Vassil Mester recently passed
away. Not sure the circumstances, but he was well known
and loved in the Toronto scene !
This tape absolutely destroys !!!!!

"Guantanamo Bay City Rollers was a booze fueled Grind n' Roll
band from Adelaide South Australia, featuring members from
Powerxchuck, Peter Brock, Iron Worzel, Stolen Youth and Nihilism.
Started in 2005, incorporating stoner groove riffs with Rock and
grindcore. They released 2 albums: Alcoholocaust 2006 and Darkside
Of The Goon 2013."
This was a review I found on You Tube, and I think it's most accurate.
Overall, excellent musicians, masterpiece of a CD !!!!!
These guys know what the hell they are doing, can adapt to any style !
Remind me a little of BBQ Chickens, crazy grind/powerviolence
mixed with rock/metal.
Love this band !!!!!
I also highly recommend Powerxchuck !
