BITTER END (US – Deathwish Inc.)
Bitter End are an intense hardcore band from San Antonio, Texas, influenced by the metallic New York Hardcore bands of the late 80’s and early 90’s. With their exhaustive touring and their debut 7″EP “Mind In Chains”, they established themselves as a brute force in the hardcore community. Refining their mid-tempo power displayed in their previous release, Bitter End took it to the next level with their debut album, “Climate of Fear”. Tight production accentuated song after song, creating a controlled chaos few bands could ever achieve. They soon after followed this album with a three song “Self Titled” 7″EP. A release that displayed a band evolving and refining their technical ability and song writing power.
RISK IT (DE – Farewell Records)
In 2009 founded 5 piece outfit from East Germany which plays pure and powerful Hardcore with rage and attitude. After the ‘Leave A Mark’ 7inch followed in April 2012 their debut record ‘Who’s Foolin’ Who’ on Farewell Records which brought the band to another level. After constant touring and shows all over Europe, RI! released their latest strike ‘The Only Thing’ in Summer 2013. This band connect energy and sincerity in their music, no compromises just Hardcore!
Hailing from the city of Antwerp, Belgium, DIY hardcore outfit LOTUS are a fairly new incarnation but nonetheless prepared to take European hardcore by the scruff of its neck with a medley of rock solid breakdowns, angst riddled vocals and outrageous riffs. Featuring ex members of Accept The Change and Redding this chaotic four piece are no strangers to the underbelly of hardcore. Think early days of Ceremony!
