Hardcore eh? There’s no denying that the genre’s rise in popularity over the past few years has been astronomical. When I was younger, hardcore meant nothing more than Steve Blackman and Crash Holly twatting each other around the head with steel chairs. But now I know hardcore means a lot more to certain pockets of the alternative community – so much so in fact that it’s more than just a genre, but a way of life. I recently decided to start my own hardcore band and seeing as you can never have enough bands to plagiarise…err…I mean inspire you, I decided to give the CB6‘s new album Succession a spin.

Being a hardcore fan can have its fair share of hardships. Worrying that you might pull a muscle while hardcore dancing. The ever-growing pile of TDON and Purgatory Records t-shirts you have to wash and iron. Not to mention how exhausting listening to the likes of Brutality Will Prevail all the time is, and how hard enjoying a Cornetto on the beach is while listening to Bastions. If only there was something to listen to that was aggressive but didn’t leave you so emotionally drained…well, get ready to turn those tattooed frowns upside down kids, as The Catharsis are about to release their debut Romance, and it’s a whole lot of fun.

Now, statistically you probably weren’t there, but you can still make sure you show your appreciation for one of the best bands that’s broken up this year by buying their entire discography on sweet, sexy vinyl.

Hype can be a funny thing. If a record arrives under the radar without the burden of expectations, your ear can be more likely to tune in on the positives. When an album comes in under a mountain of pre-release buzz, the expectation can make you critical of things you would otherwise ignore. What does that mean when a release has been hyped as high as the third album from Your Demise?
