As a metalhead of eleven years, I came to the hardcore scene pretty late and among the worst of “hardcore” contemporaries. Seas of “hardcore” kids recommending Winds of Plague and Emmure flooded the corners of every streets. One-eyed creatures seeped out of every crevice. I was horrified by this genre…this “hardcore” entity…and I vowed to walk away from its crab-dancing keyboard laden grasps forever. About a year ago, a stream on Metalsucks for a certain band called Harm’s Way brought me back on the right track towards hardcore. My revived interest in hardcore and endless google searches in turn brought me towards Toxicbreed’s Funhouse, a site that has since become my primary nexus and hub for REAL hardcore.
On July 13th, Toxicbreed’s Funhouse return to crush false impressions of hardcore once more. The third volume of Toxicbreed’s completely free and crushing hardcore compilation, Casa De Diversion, will be released. And as a bonus, a track by the excellent hardcore/powerviolence/sludge band Snakes has been released to tease the compilation. Anyhow, whether you listen to hardcore or not(DO IT), mark your calenders for July 13th and check out everything on Toxicbreed’s Funhouse. Support real hardcore. Death to crab-dancing and one eyed monsters.
Also, shoutouts to Snakes for their excellent hardcore record, Please Kill Me Now, which can be streamed below and downloaded for free. FREE.
