• If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
  • At times so self destructive with no intent or motive, but behind this emotion, there lies a sensible heart.
  • I’m in no shape for a new day, I'm in no mood for a better place or a fix or your pretty face. I’m just not in the mood.
  • Say something and close the door, And break the silence in our room, Hold your breath, let you through, Just for a moment this is our shelter.
  • With your hands wide open, 
Renew the days we all thought lost, 
Renew the days, 
Let go, 
Release, revolve, renew
  • don’t even try, 
to maximize these plans, 
I steal, 
I catch this wind, 
after all of my lies, 
don’t you dare fall for, 
how I could be depends, 
on the cold you bring
  • And if my heart just stops, keep me alive for a minute.
I want to know if a curtain drops.
  • So I don't care if you dance well
'cause fashion can't replace content and passion is lost between scene points and greasy hair.
  • I speak in sarcasm to relate to all the things I appreciate
I lie in rhythm to open doors I follow suit and just want more
  • Stay tame, soft river, while we weigh our faith, stay sweet, run softly, sweet river, the fool who wades in doubt will float like concrete.
  • You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for.
  • New wars. New kings. The pigs came here to take everything. No wars. No kings. We gotta stop the blood-letting.
  •  I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees, I'd rather die on my feet so you can WATCH ME RISE
  • I took the whole damn ride, with my best friends by my side, the days turned into nights and we held on with all our might
  • what the fuck are you so afraid of? as strong as lions but you never showed your fucking teeth.

Setting The Woods On Fire NEW!

The power trio from Warsaw plays what is generally referred to as post hardcore. The music bubbles with energy, noise, a massive dose of emotion, and everything you’d expect from a young band that stays true to the best rock traditions. The skill with which they produce their relentless wall of guitar noise is second only to their great technique and, most importantly, their rare talent for writing thoughtful, engaging, and memorable melodies. This successful combination sets STWOF apart from other bands. New EP is something blowing up my head! The gig yesterday was awesome - some new tracks live sounds almost like Snowing which is surely big recommendation!

Lasting Traces NEW!

Lasting Traces is a four-piece melodic hardcore band from Baden-Württemberg, Germany formed in 2007. Part of members have previously played together in German hardcore punk band Brainshot. Their lyrics are concerned primarily with their own struggles and convulsions of daily life. Be it the parade theme of “interpersonal relations”, as well as his own inner dissatisfaction with himself self-reflection or soul Strip, as one would call flat. Their music is everything what you can expect from modern hardcore band, with melodic moments and sometimes 'singing choruses'.


Have you got a Friend? No?! You have to get him! Or rather Them! Friend? are a five piece instrumental band from Dublin, Ireland.

Who Needs Maps? UPDATE!

Great screamo band from France with some melody characteristic for bands from this country. For fans of Daitro, Sed Non Satiata etc.


Throats died 7th December 2010. That was not simply a hardcore band anymore. Bile, rage and despondency have organically mutated an already bitter and angry band into something far more extreme, reckless and dangerous. Throats have evolved into a monster that, whilst nodding to their own past, now encompass a sound that embraces elements of Napalm Death, Rotten Sound, crust and d-beat into their stoned, cosmic riffs and breakdowns. Throats didn’t do sing-a-longs. They didn’t do melodies. They didn’t do harmonies. In fact, the young quintet barely do songs. Instead they prefer to carve acidic hardcore from riffs that do both razor speed and steamroller intensity and a rhythm section that rumbles like an exploding airliner.

Nothing Between Us

Mixing different styles of hardcore, playing as many shows as they can, having time of their life. Polish-based band, Nothing Between Us, came to life in 2008. The idea was simple. Six friends formed a band they have always wanted to play in. Hardcore is more than music. Hardcore is something that gives us the reason to be in this together. Something unique in this cold fucking world. We’re not musicians. We are the kids who want to be right here, right now, just for the moment. Many months ago one of us said: "If it was not all about being in this scene, I would never start playing music". "We support DIY, half of us are vegetarians, we drink, because we like to party. You chose your own path. Our path got a name. - Nothing Between Us."


For sure I can say that this is full European band. Their name sounds French, their music is like some Icelandic post-rock band and they're from Austria. Isn't it quite nice mixture? As I wrote their music could be easy misleaded with some artists like Sigur Rós or something like that. But it's still nice to listen, and worth to check! Thy're from Vienna, Austria. The band was founded by Alex Mallory, Chris Augusti and Nico Sieder in 2008.

Post rock mixed with pop? That's something new! Although every song of Finnich Cassie have a post rock core and all music is in this concrete style, the soft and gentle melodic way of vocals of Sofia Thurén makes that all music brings to mind pop. That's quite unique and atypical. Worth to check!

Forever Young is a vegan straight-edge band from Umeå in Sweden. Legendary city Umeå, which is hatchery of best european hardcore bands. Nowadays the scene isn't so strong as it was in the 90's, bu the bands as Forever Young are inheritor of heritage, which the bands like Refused, Abhinanda, Shield or Purusam left there. FY isn't only straightforward thinking and attitude but also action: they participate animal rights and feministic fests and demonstrations. Good to know, good to listen and think about the message they give!

Damascus are four people from South River, NJ, USA playing instrumental/heavy post rock music. 'Salutations, Distant Satellite!' is their first official record. "We are friends from the beginning: we share grief and ground and gray dread; we even share the sun. We do not speak to each other, because we know too much; we are silent to each other, we smile our knowledge at each other. Are you not the light for my fire? Have you not the sister soul to my insight? Together we have learned everything; together we have learned to ascend over ourselves to ourselves and to smile cloudlessly - to smile down cloudlessly from bright eyes and from a vast distance when constraint and contrivance and guilt stream beneath us like rain." That must be something magical!

Obscure Sphinx

The Obscure Sphinx project was formed in 2008 with a specific goal in mind: to grab the listener’s hand, take him on the brink of madness, tell him about it, and bring him back safely. Their live perfomances resemble dark rituals of untold fears and shrieking repressed emotions. Although musically they seem to have found their place somewhere between post and doom metal, they are not afraid to search for inspirations in other genres. Constantly toying with conventions, Obscure Sphinx merges sonic spaces and electronic samples with the crushing combo of 8-string guitars and 6-string bass rhythmics. All of this is flavoured by a unique voice of the vocalist.

Paper Vultures

Paper Vultures is a scandinavian band from Finland playing some original mixture of music. 'Kuiper Belt' is a record designed to show how absolutely different influences can get together and create a whole new picture of a modern progressive band. You can find there some elements on post-hardcore growl/clean vocals, sometimes choirs characteristic for hardcore music and everything is in ambientic soundscapes surrounding. Quite interesting beginning of, maybe in future, very good band!

North&south is an instrumental Post-rock band based out of Miami Fl. Drawing influence from artists such as: Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mono, and Ef, these four individuals have come together to create music that will move the heart and shake the soul. Blending layers of guitars, bass, and drums; North&south has developed their own sound, their own atmosphere that will bring out the raw emotion of not only the artist in their live performances, but the listener. The group’s debut release: “Ghost EP” deals with themes of aggression, peace, anger, joy, consonance, dissonance, love, and hate. Although the band is young, it is already making a name for itself, developing a strong local fan base by consistently playing shows. For me, they have a good start, and I'll look forward their next release.
