Sick Of It All

Alerta – Tu Decides El Final (Blood Fire Death)

Spain hasn’t been my go to location for hardcore in my collection over the last 30 years or so as these Basque Country bruisers unleash a fifth album heavily tinged with metallic components. With all lyrics sang in Basque or… Continue Reading →

Transport League – A Million Volt Scream (Mighty Music)

A quarter of a century these Swedish roughneck purveyors of hellish boogie have been plying their trade.  They had a break in the mid 2000’s in order to return with 2013’s Boogie From Hell. A Million Volt Scream follows Twist and… Continue Reading →

Billy Bio – Feed The Fire (AFM Records)

Believe it or not, while I may have heard of Biohazard for nearly 30 years, I have never actually listened to a single album. Sure, I’ve heard a good many songs on compilations, samplers and watched music videos, so I… Continue Reading →

Sick Of It All – Wake the Sleeping Dragon! (Century Media)

Hardcore isn’t exclusively a New York phenomenon, but it is appropriate to the gritty city. Sick Of It All have been doing it loud and proud for 32 years, and are now on their twelfth album. If I were to… Continue Reading →

Madball – For The Cause (Nuclear Blast)

Back in the late eighties when Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret first let his 12 year old brother Freddy Cricien jump on stage and take the mic no one could have thought that “Madball” Freddy and his pals would still be… Continue Reading →

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper – Split (Relapse Records)

I think I must have been quick off the blocks to get a hold of this from Thee Ed, as I know that both Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper are some of the most hotly regarded bands of the last couple… Continue Reading →

Bloodclot – Up In Arms (Metal Blade)

Super-group. An epithet banded about since the seventies and usually used for a bunch of rich hippies who got stoned and decided to make some extra cash by rehashing riffs from their parent bands. Hardcore. A genre that seems to… Continue Reading →

Walls Of Jericho – No One Can Save You From Yourself (Napalm)

If you bought into The American Dream it’s been a while since its follow up but finally after 8 years Walls Of Jericho return with album number five, No One Can Save You From Yourself. In the hiatus, life and… Continue Reading →

World Be Free – The Anti-Circle (Revelation Records)

My whole world has been torn apart. Scott Vogel was always the angriest man in hardcore, every subsequent Terror record reinforcing his message of disillusionment, dissatisfaction and general vitriol. It was a done deal and we all knew what to… Continue Reading →

Terror – The 25th Hour (Century Media)

Over the past 13 years Terror have carved themselves a place as hardcore heavyweights. The two original members; vocalist Scott Vogel and drummer Nick Jett, have persevered through multiple line-ups, labels, six albums, four EP’s and an almost constant touring… Continue Reading →

Survival – Shayda 1 (S/R)

Since the early 1990’s, the biggest challenge facing a new hardcore band is how to stand apart from every other hardcore band, how to be unique while retaining support of the scene. Bands remain true to the written formula, deviate… Continue Reading →

The Fiend – Greed• Power • Religion • War (Candlelight)

This Newcastle band has been around for 30 years it seems but releases are scarce to say the least as this is only the second full length out and was released during 2014 but has been picked up Candlelight to… Continue Reading →
