Dropdead
Dropdead
Dropdead formed officially in January of 1991 in Providence RI. Having met in 1989, playing music together for a year before a lineup change saw Bob and Ben switch instruments, a name change, and a great increase in speed and intensity. The idea was to play pissed off, aggressive, no bullshit HC/Punk with personally political lyrics. Musically the influences drew from bands as diverse as Confuse, Siege, Larm, Crass, Swans, Infest, SSD, Pandemonium, Icons of Filth, Gauze, Septic Death, Discharge, Anti-Cimex etc. The first show happening within a few months, April of 1991 with Born Aginst and Rorschach. From then on no looking back. The band started and continues with a strong "Do It Yourself" work ethic, booking their own shows and releasing their own records. Over the years Dropdead has played hundreds of shows, recorded two LP's, some splits and EP's, toured the USA and Europe numerous times, as well as Australia and Japan. 24 years of Political No Bullshit Hardcore Thrash!
Fucking Invincible
Fucking Invincible
Comprised of local musicians who’ve collectively spent time in Daughters, Dropdead, Soul Control, Sweet Jesus and others, FUCKING INVINCIBLE unloads a barrage of volatile and pissed-off hardcore, citing the grueling intensity of early hardcore icons Infest, Assfactor 4, Black Army Jacket, C.R., Left For Dead, Dropdead and the like, delivered through an intense seemingly sludge metal-designed overload of amplification. Their high-speed blasts and gnarled whirlwind of riffs also max-out at low-tempos, creating monstrous, dredging breakdowns, a scathing vocal rant raging through it all.
V-Sect
V-Sect
Rhode Island.
Dying
Dying
Dying formed in Philadelphia in the winter of 2011. Over the course of three years and three releases, a handful of short tours and canceled shows, traumatic van repair crises and a few lineup changes, they have slowly transformed into a completely different animal than their early configuration. The band has become rawer and more aggressive over time, pulling more directly from hardcore staples from the early 2000's like Cursed and Converge. Their newest recordings find them toeing the line between memorable hardcore songwriting and unhinged anxiety wracked noise.
