As a few of you know i'm in a hardcore band and finally did some recording this weekend see below link for 3 tracks that will have you pounding your chest with pride, and breaking your things to get out your anger issues... and oh yes there is gang chants
Well, I guess everyone's being diplomatic on here considering how long ago you posted this, but I've had a listen to this and while I don't really listen to hardcore much, I think this is miles better than other stuff out there. I was gonna say there's some stuff on there that's reminiscent of Napalm which makes it a bit more raw and heavier than other bands, then I noticed you've got a support slot with them. Good work!
In general I think this is a lot more interesting and chaotic than other hardcore. It's faster paced too.
I actually do like some hardcore if it's faster like this and not all that slow Biohazard/Hatebreed crap, but my knowledge is very limited! Anyway, this actually sounds pretty good - well executed and well recorded (apart from the drum overheads don't sound quite right), and I really like the guitar tone! Vocals sound pissed off too! Nice one Dan!
