Die A Legend - these guys have got some balls, as witnessed by the above track, Die A Legend. Not for the first time I’m gonna write “Norway may be most well known for its black metal scene but the hardcore scene there’s also alive, well & pouring petrol on the flames of it’s own making”. Or words to that effect anyway. Dunno what they’re putting in their porridge over there but it’s producing some great music atm.
A bit more riff laden than most of your Norwegian hardcore it might well put you in mind BANE (eyes down for the 2nd July @the fleece kids) or maybe even Converge, altho having said that spiel I’ve read about them suggests they sound “strangely un-norwegian with a heavy influence of both 90s swedish hardcore (Breach, Raised Fist, early Refused)”.
They’re putting out an EP / Album called Progression Through Retrospection on June 12th on Badlands Ent. No physical release confirmed yet o/s of their home country but if any record labels reading this fancy doing something about that I’m sure they’d be well up for it.
Message them on Facebook if you like, or just like them on Facebook if you,
And here’s one more track fer ya ….
