Split 7-inch: Is the UK Hardcore scene a divided place?

November 28th, 2013

The battle between culture and commerce is something that’s always on the agenda, whether we’re actively talking about it or not. The UK Hardcore scene is one that has been enjoying a surge in popularity over the past few years but why is that? Tomas Doyle talks to prominent figures in the scene to try to discover whether the divide that appears to be growing is really there and if it is, what we can do about it…

Few scenes, if any, have enjoyed such a leap to mainstream popularity as hardcore has in the last ten years. The rise and rise of its sister genre, post-hardcore, package tours both domestic and foreign and a proliferation of the niche as a lifestyle package have all played their part in making the counter culture a big deal but has this move overground diluted what hardcore once stood for and is the UK scene in particular splitting in two? One side more underground, the other sprawling into more public consciousness. What does it mean to be in a hardcore band, either under the radar or more high profile in 2013 and does it even matter anyway?

The Thrash Hits Podcast 018: The Racist, Sexist, Homophobic Underbelly of Metal

November 15th, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Uh-oh – we’re dealing with some Serious Stuff on this episode of the podcast. This week, Hugh is joined by Tom Doyle as they take a look at the unpleasant creeping tolerance for casual racism, sexism, homophobia and hate that has creeped into the fandom of modern metal, rock, and punk, and also at significant sections of the community’s unwillingness to recognise or address it in a meaningful way. Yeah, it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Your Demise released their fourth studio album last month, and so obviously they’re out on the road, playing shows in support of it. That’s just what bands do, right? Around the time they released the album in question The Golden Age, a load of kids in New Era caps got butthurt on Tumblr because Your Demise had sold out or something. I guess these fans didn’t really number all that many though, as from what we could tell, these shows were selling out too (but in the good way).

by Tomas Doyle

The most telling moment of  Your Demise’s fifth studio album comes right at the end of its third song, ‘Born a Snake‘. Vocalist Ed McRae yells “MOTHERFUCKER!” into the mic with all the force he can muster before breaking out into a childish giggle. Y’see, Ed isn’t taking it too seriously, and Hell, why should he? Mid 20’s guy rockin’ and rollin’ with his buddies in a young punk band – The Golden Age of his life? You better believe it. So if Ed isn’t taking it too seriously, why on earth is everyone else?

We were in Paris on our holidays, looking at massive art installations at 3am when we realised that Enter Shikari were playing in the City of Love with letlive. and Your Demise. Obviously we had to go and make some sort of non-French enclave happen. We did it. The 300 capacity La Glazart was the hottest venue we’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing a band in. Cor. Then Matt Thomas caught the tour in Liverpool and took some photos. BONG!

Punk has long been at the heart of Britain’s diverse wealth of heavy musical talent. The calibre of the hardcore-orientated acts that have emerged in the last five years is matched only by their consistency, with the current pantheon including the likes of The Ghost Of A Thousand, Bastions, TRC, Dead Swans, Gallows…and tonight’s headliners, Your Demise.
