"...homage to heavy music’s abomination on the one and its gracefulness on the other hand.
 In this manner they are evocative of bands like Converge, Cursed or Cave In, who have a similar
approach of creating music in the grey area between  chaotic Hardcore, Metal and Punk".

Yeah, I didnt mention a lot of awesome bands, like:

Bottom Out, Breaking Point, Coastlines, Coldburn, Death Before Dishonor, Down To Nothing,

Palm Reader, Power Trip, Ranger, Sai Nam, Spirit Animal, Suburban Scum, Take Offense,
True Valiance, Turnstile, Twitching Tongues, World Collapse, ...
but thats just cause they are not "underrated" and so you either know about them anyway,
or get them advertised on like every other hardcore related page as well.
(...or I was just to lazy, I mean, these listed are enough, arent they?)

If any of the bandcamp links has expired or put down, just tell me! ;-)

NEGATIVE APPROACH, JERRY'S KIDS Style..... You Don't need EMO If You Dig the Real thing.... Metalcore Is Boring and Much Too Slow.... Cut the Metal Crap Outta Hardcore!... OS/HC No More, No Less!
